Paws & Claws...


China Glaze polish in "Icicle"...not sure about the peach varnish, my nail salon did not have a lable or brand on the bottle, which sucks because I really like this color...I am going to be on the hunt for a dupe since the salon was not willing to sell it to me lol

Dipped In Lavender


Xtina is rocking new lavender ombre tresses for the new season of The Voice...I really like this look on her; I've been debating myself if I have the nerve to rock the pastel hair trend... hmmm we shall see, maybe come fall I may try it out!

My Day With Marilyn...

This pass weekend marks 50 years since the Iconic Beauty, Marilyn Monroe passed...I am such a fan of hers since I was a young girl...I remember the first time seeing her on screen, I was completely stunned by her beauty and her charm...Marilyn embodies sexuaility, grace, and vulnerability all at once, which I believe makes her appealing and relatable to everyone who adores the Blonde Bombshell...Over the weekend I stayed in and watched some of Ms Monroe's flims (which I have seen over a dozen times lol)...It would had been nice if the starlet was still living today, but she will forever live on through our hearts with her magnetic presences!








Makeup Inspired by Marina and The Diamonds #Primadonna


I had intentions for a while now to do a makeup tutorial from the music video Primadonna, by the Welsh singer Marina and The Diamonds...I heard of the new wave pop singer last year, but really indulged in her music recently and I really enjoy her sound and her aesthetics...Especially in her music video "Primadonna", her look is a medley of Marie Antoinette and Marilyn Monroe...I really like her modern twist on everything and had fun playing with pinks and lashes, very girly and ethereal...

 I know this picture was taken in back June for Katy Perry's movie premiere "Katy Perry: Part Of Me" 3D...but I just love how she looks in this dress; the color is so rich and the shape is so lady like...I like how Katy topped this Dolce & Gabbana Scarlet Velvet Tea lenght dress with a Judith Leiber Cake Crystal Minaudiere...which complimented the singer's kitschy signature style...
