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!
thanks for reading :)

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! :)
