Im back :D or am I?

 looooooooong time since my last posting..goodness has it really been that long? I remember creating this blog as a way for me to gush about my love for cosmetics and fashion, and share that love with other people. Then it became a wonderful window into my life as I began sharing my passion for other things as well (especially my love for those mischievous cats of mine xD). But sadly, my writings were slowed and eventually I stopped blogging completely as I found less and less time for it :(. its still something that is incredibly fun to do , and blogging is one of my favorite hobbies!

As of now I'm not quite sure what my plan is, perhaps every now and then (or a little more often) I'll drop by this old blog and leave a few reviews, some snippets from my life, and a fashion post or two. Maybe I will be more of a seasonal blogger ( I seem to be at my best, fashion wise, in the winter months anyways :p) but i know for sure that I will still faithfully follow the blogs I do so love to read from time to time.

As for now, I hope those who found (and still find?) my blog a means of happiness, will continue to stay tuned for my next post.And thank you to everyone who was so patient and to those who kept this little blog in mind. :) 

Still living for the City,
        Angela :)

My Picks

YAAAAY it's finally March (and saint Patrick's day is right around the corner) . Green is the seasons color and also happens to be my absolute favorite color as well. So to show my holiday spirit, I have decided to do a post featuring my choice "green" products. These products have natural ingredients included in them, making them oh-so healthy for your skin while leaving a clean/ fresh feeling. my DAILY usage of these products explains why they are all half empty (or half full ?) and also shows how much I love them :)

So this first one is a fragrance by AVON called natural. Its the cucumber body spray/perfume which has a surprisingly sweet top note. Its my signature scent and I love the fresh clean smell. Its really for a girl who has a casual/ airy style. Its definitely not floral smelling and it doesn't smell very high end, but it smells clean and crisp for sure!

Next is this rice mask wash off which I use weekly to soften my skin. It was a Christmas gift that I have been thankful to receive every time I use it. Its great for sensitive skin too!. I use it after I cleanse my face and neck. Its really cool because there are tiny grains of rice in the masks that gently exfoliate your skin. Did I mention that it smells amazing?

I also Use this cleansing wash from Boots almost daily. Its from the Botanic collection and it leaves my skin feeling so soft and clean. I use it at the end off the day to wash off makeup. I love that this is a foam and when I apply to my wet face, it really does turn to foam! so cool.

Next is this lotion from the world market. Its got real olive and Shea oils that keep my skin hydrated during windy days. it was really inexpensive and other key ingredients include sugar, vanilla, almond, and cocoa! As You can see, My bottle has received a lot of love (its almost time to restock!) This unique lotion is thinner than than a body butter, but more moisturizing and less oily than regular lotions, but whatever it is, I love it xD

hope you all have a fantastic march!

pink dress and posing mess

Yes, I know I just posted about a new Grey Jacket but the one featured in this post is actually a different one (hahah, coincidence) The difference is that this is more of a blazer-type jacket and it has shoulder pads so it makes me look sophisticated xD

This adorable number was purchased at a shopping district (L.A has a district near, little Tokyo, where the street is filled with clothes and makeup and jewelry sellers. 30 blocks of sheer enjoyment aha)I love the elegance of his dress. With ruffles, flowers (and the fact that it is pink) how much more feminine can it get? the silhouette is so flattering and I really love how airy and light it is. Mind you, these are very bad poses but I was trying to pull back the jacket so that everyone could see mostly the dress , I don't usually don't look like such a mess xD

paired the dress with some black boots and grey tights so I am now ready to face the day!

Thanks for reading ! :)

sunny day and feelin' grey

Well! It has been a while since my last post! my apologies, its been an extremely busy month. But luckily I had time to snap a few photos outside while the sun was up and I've got some new pics to show you all! enjoy.

I recently went a little clothing crazy and got tons of new clothing items (in my defense, they were quite reasonably priced) my first item was this jacket from forever 21, which I am absolutely in love with. I dont own too many grey pices but this was a must have. Luckily it covers very well so whatever I am wearing underneath will be hidden, whether it matches or not, until the jacket comes off (which may in fact be never because I love this jacket sooooo much xD). The material is very thick and thermal , yet it somehow manages to avoid looking packed or bulky.It also features a hood and belt for extra warmth and snugness (is "snugness" a word? I think it is...)

And now for the absolutely best part: Pockets! You would never know they were there but this jacket happens to have the most roomy and comfortable pockets I have ever experienced.

This is a pic with the new tunic I bought, but I can go more in depth on that piece in a future post ;)

Thanks so much for staying patient with me, and thanks for reading! :)

A new bed!

Hey guys! It's a little off topic but I absolutley had to stop and gush about this new bed that I got my cats a few days ago.Last weekend my cats received a new bed to share and hopefully it will keep those little trouble makers off of mine! I think they will quite like it considering that it is some-what roomy so they can hide inside of it.

There is a sheepskin lining on the inside which is certainly going to win over Oreo. Fernie will love the nook because of it's enclosed design, he tends to choose small, dark spaces when he takes a nap.

I am absoutley in love with this animal print on the exterior! What better pattern for a cat bed than cat print? Besides, Fernie thinks he is a wild animal anyways! So overall, this little bed has sheepskin flooring, foux fur lining, an enclosed design, and a killer exterior. xD. I can't believe how spoiled these cats are !

It looks like Oreo is already poking around inside!

Thanks for reading :)

My threads: Oxfords with heels and black friday deals

Yesterday was surprisingly warm compared to how the weather has been these past few weeks. I didn't even have to wear a jacket or gloves! However, I was not about to leave the house at 7 am in the morning wearing a t-shirt so I opted for a thick green cardigan and a vibrant scarf.

The scarf was a gift from my cousin, while the cardigan was purchased at a black Friday sale last year ( quick history: during a time of scandal and trickery in America , money hungry business men attempted to take advantage of wall street investors. Their plan was to make a huge profit by tricking the president but it was ruined when president Grant discovered their scheme. thousands of dollars were lost and prices were forced to drop everywhere. Hundreds of years later, stores all over America feature unbelievable prices on black Friday , the day after thanksgiving, for about 15 hours only. Seriously, people get into fist fights over black Friday sales!)

My shoes are not shown in the pics but I am wearing my favorite ones : oxfords. The best part about these shoes are their heels. A short girl like me needs all the height she can get! P.S: does anyone spot a four leaf clover in this picture? ha ha just kidding. Do you have a favorite pair of shoes?
