Obsession of the Month: Grungy Jewelry


, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

For the past year, bohemian and grungy styles have ruled the fashion scene including the streets of LA or the fashion week runway in Milan. The bold looks are taking over, and no better way to make an outfit bold than jewelry. Givenchy took this style to another level this year in both their mens and woman shows!

Here are a few of my favorite pieces of grungy and statement jewelry that can be found anywhere from Saint Laurent to Forever 21!
Obsession of the Month: Grungy Jewelry

One of my big obsession are different types of chokers! For example, I belted choker or a metal choker with a half moon! Stacking rings is also a great way to add boldness to a look. The Dior pearl earrings or the Tiffany & co. earrings are a great way to be bold yet classy.

Thank You for reading! more jewelry post coming today

Obsession of the Month: Bold Belts


, , , , , , , , , , , ,

For the past few weeks, i’ve been in Chicago and LA. I’ve been observing street fashion thoroughly and have come across an insane amount of belted outfits. I use to dislike belts and found them cheesy and an unnecessary accessory, but I’ve decided to experiment with the new trend. This week I decided to purchase four cool belts and create unique outfits. Ive also been using celeb inspiration to create grungy incorporations. Here are a few of my favorite belts! Obsession of the Month: Bold Belts

Here are 3 of the 4 belts I purchased

, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

As many of you know, i’ve been in and out of LA for a couple months now; I am officially moving in august. I have noticed many trends I had not experienced in Miami: caps, sneakers, and casual wear EVERYWHERE! I have been following the trends, and now LOVE them. Here are a few outfits, featuring pops of color! Nudes, pastels, and blacks are what most casual outfits are composed of; in summer, most people switch it up with a funky bag or pair of shades. Here are a few of the outfits I have been wearing out in LA. I’ve also been working here in LA with a company running their blog. It’s opened my eyes to a lot of new ideas and content coming soon! look out for it !!

    Screen shot 2015-06-12 at 3.37.57 PMHELLO BEAUTY LOVERS!

Today I am sharing with you my skin care routine that I have tweaked to perfection in the past weeks. About a year ago, I didn’t feel the need to use any product on my face because there were no extremely visible issues, but I began to notice that over time residue and discoloring were prominent. My skin began to look dull and even dirty at times. I began to use a cleanser I found at a drugstore (the Neutrogena Acne Stress Control Toner) and saw a quick result. It is meant to be for acne, but it reduced the redness and small blackheads around my nose and bridge. I did find that using it everyday made my skin very dry, so I began to use it 3 times a week instead.

Then I found that after my day, I needed to wash my face to remove the makeup, and excess dirt that builds during a normal daily routine. My friend Val recommended visiting Lush Cosmetics. The lush workers know so so so much about the skin and what products to recommend. Everything is natural, chemical, and even plastic free inside the product. I began to use the Dark Angels Face and Body Cleanser and it changed my life!!!! MY skin began to glow from removing all the dirt and residue build-up. The product is mainly made out of black sugar and charcoal. It’s also mud-based and incredibly oil-retractive. I use this product in the morning, as well as at night.

Yesterday, I purchased the Lush Brazened Honey Fresh Face Mask. I have not had the opportunity to try it out, but my friend was very excited about how “glowy” it made her skin! I will do a separate review on the Lush products I swear by!

The Lancome Makeup Remover is the product I have been using for about 5 years. It doesnt irritate the skin, and works worderfully for eyes and face!

Reviews Coming Soon!
