Manhattan Beach

This weekend I took off to enjoy some sun, sand and shopping in LA with a friend! It was such a fun and memorable weekend! My favorite part of the trip was enjoying a delicious lunch with sangria on the water in Manhattan Beach with an old friend then shopping along the coast and grabbing yummy ice cream before we took off to enjoy sight seeing in LA!

Neon Pink Lips

Bright neon fucsia lips with an all white or black ensemble is a fabulous style statement! Not only that but it is an affordable trend that is sure to go with anyone's wardrobe! Therefore, I'm currently on the look-out for the perfect shade of pink to wear this spring! 

Sweet Tooth

Ombre Cake Decor

Ombre coloring isn't only for highlighting your hair.
 Lately it's even been a decor style for cakes too!

These look as good as they must taste!

Trend Report: Kelly Green

Kelly green is one of my favorite colors that is usually difficult to find, but not this season! Instead it's everywhere! I would pair it with leopard prints, stripes or nudes!

Arizona, Spring is here!

As the cold begins to wind down here in Arizona, the heat is already starting to warm up and that means spring has arrived! (Unofficially, of course) Arizona's spring provides the most perfect weather to be outdoors but it's also a great time to pull out the cute sandals, shorts and tanks you've been saving in your drawers for the last 3 months! Therefore, I instantly pull out the items with fun pops of color as I await for retailers to put up their spring collections! Below are a few examples of what I would choose to wear in order to be comfortable in fresh spring weather and stay updated on trends!

HAPPY 2012!

I hope everyone had a fantastic New Years! I spent mine at a close friend's party! We drank, played silly board games and watched the ball drop in Time's Square as it hit midnight! It was a great way to ring in the new year! I have a feeling that 2012 is going to come with many new opportunities! What fun is New Years Eve though without dressing up in a sparkly ensemble to celebrate! So, I wore a gold sequin bolero with leather shorts and tights and black suede booties and to top it off, bold red lips!

 What I wore: Trouve Gold Sequin Bolero, Urban Outfitters Silk Tank, Trouve Leather Shorts, Target Black Tights, Stuart Weizman 'Wrap It Up' Booties, House of Harlow Necklace, Mac Red Lipstick & Liner.

Bobbi Brown's 'Neons & Nudes' Collection

I've always been a fan of Bobbi Brown and her makeup collections! I even have one her books as a good resource for learning how to apply different styles of makeup on myself. Therefore, when I found out she was coming out with a line of 'Neons and Nudes', I knew I would have to check it out immediately! Sure enough, I loved the playful lips and daring eyes that came from this collection! My favorites include, 'Atomic Orange' and 'Uber Beige' Lip Color as well as 'Nude Peach & Pink' blush! 

"I love the juxtaposition of subtle with not-so-subtle colors
-it's about highlighting one feature at a time." -Bobbi Brown
