Stripes & Slouchy Denim

Hello, Loves!
Long time no outfit post! As I have mentioned in previous posts, I have been super under the weather. For the past several days, I have been in really bummy clothes. Mostly scrubs and PJs. There's nothing really cute about my scrubs&pjs. LOL! But today, I went to dinner with some friends, so I figured this would be a good time to snap a couple photos of my outfit. =)

Top: H&M
Pants: H&M
Shoes: Bakers

Hope you liked my quick OOTD! Until next time, I'll see you in my next post!

NOTM+Gel Topcoat

Hello, Dolls!
These are my nails of the moment. I was in a pinky mood, so i decided to paint my nails pink! It's showing up a lot more coral than it actually is in person, which is a little upsetting...but oh well. I never have the chance to take photos in natural day light because, well...i'm never home during the day! =/

This is such a cute pink color! So great for spring!
Also, the newest thing in nails ( to me, at least) is the whole GEL manicure. A few of my friends have told me that when they get their nails done now, they have a choice to put this Gel overlay on to make the manicure last a little bit longer. My friend told me about this GELOUS ADVANCED NAIL GET COAT that you can purchase at Sally's Beauty Supply. It is just a top coat that you put over your nail polish. I am wearing it right now. I only put 1 coat and I can definitely see the difference in thickness. So far, I like the way it is making my nails look. It's not obvious in the pictures, but its definitely obvious in person. I will let you know how it does throughout the week as far chipping and what not.

Hope you have a great week my loves!! See you in my next post. =)

Nail Polish Haulage

Hello, loves!
I hope you all have had a wonderful week! As for me, I'm still sick. =( I actually think I got worse. I woke up on Tuesday morning feeling extremely congested. I was coughing so much that day that I had to leave work. I hate having to do that! But, as of now...I don't feel miserable, but I'm definitely not completely well either. But I'm good. =D

Anywho, after school yesterday, I decided to stop by a nail supply shop to pick up some nail polishes. I was craving some new colors. teehee! I got there a little late, so I only had 30 minutes to look around. It wasn't until I left that I realized I had just purchased 10 new polishes for myself. -___- But...I don't feel that bad since I got 6 OPI polishes, 2 China Glaze polishes, and 2 Essie polishes for a grand total of $36.00. That makes it okay............right??? lol

Until next time, I'll see u in my next blog!!

Cupcake Nails

Hello, Loves!
I feel like i haven't blogged in FOREVER! I have been so busy lately, especially because I just took on a second job! This past week was my first week at my new job and I love it! But between working 2 jobs and studying like a mad woman, my immune system definitely took a hit and now...I'm a little sick. =/ For the first time in a LONG time, I actually have a whooole weekend off! I was planning on doing some OOTD posts and what not, but I've been stuck at home in my pj's looking like poop. lol! So since I've been home, I've been watching a LOT of television. I was watching the Food Network for HOURS today, and one of the shows I watched was CUPCAKE WARS! I LOOOVE that show! That's how I got inspired to do my cupcake nails. =)

I've never done cupcake nails before, but I think they turned out okay? teehee! Hope you lovelies are having an amazing weekend!! 
See you in my next post <3

My new pet snake...

Okay not really...but I did just get these bad boys! They are snake skin printed pumps and I LOOOVE them! These are definitely NOT for everyone, but I think they are SO freakin HOT I can't stand it!

Also, the thing that I love most about these shoes is that they will go well with almost anything! Since the colors of the snake skin are fairly neutral, there are definitely a lot of options that I can pair with these shoes! I think that these bad boys will play up ANY outfit!

Lastly, I will leave you with an OOTD video. Hope you like it! <3

SHATTER + New Hair Product

Hello My Loves!
Oh my! Long time no blog! I've been so busy with school+work! I've also been spending a lot of time with my old college friends! (sheesh, does that make me sound old or what?) But it was so good to see them and to catch up on LIFE! But anyway! I'm back and I promise to be more consistent with my blogging.

I finally got my hands on the OPI Shatter Polish! Thanks to my good friend, Nikole (hey girl! i know ur reading this!!). I had already given up on finding it, but she text me and told me that they had one left at the salon she was at and asked if I wanted it! So of course, I said yesss! And I'm so happy that I have it.

I also purchased new shampoo and conditioner today. My hair is so BLEHCK and dry! I also shed like a freaking BEAST! I feel like I'm gonna go bald one day. So I decided to give this Loreal Sulfate Free shampoo and conditioner a try.

Obviously, these aren't the two that exactly go together, but I was determined to try it out. If any of you have tried this out, or any other sulfate free shampoo for that matter, let me know what you think about it! I will definitely be doing a follow up review once I've used this for quite some time.
Until next time, I'll see you in my next blog! <3

Hello, Spring! Nice to see you again!

Hello, Dolls!
It was SUCH a beautiful day in Southern California today. SoCal has the most bipolar weather EVER! Just a few days ago, it was raining like crazy, and according to the forecast, it will be in the mid 70's by the end of this week. What a big difference! But anyways, today was just GORGEOUS! It was sunny, but still cool in the mid 60's. My kinda weather! So I wore this out today. =)

What I'm wearing:
All Forever 21 excluding shoes, which are from Bakers.

I'm so in love with those shorts! First of all, I have nothing with that kind of pattern. It almost looks like splashes of paint! And second of all, they look like a skirt! But I don't have to be as careful and worried that my skirt will fly up...because they're shorts! Lol...okay yah I'm dumb. =P

Until next time, I'll see you in my next post!
