Outfit of the Day: Fall Wedding Reception.

Hey guys!

This is what I wore to my father's wedding reception.
I thought the dress was perfect for the fall. The colors remind me of fall leaves.
I paired a matching necklace, and a black blazer.
I thought I would add an accent color for the shoes, to break the matchy-matchy feel.
Plus, they are super comfortable.

Things I'm wearing:

-Thrifted Black Blazer
-Dress from TJ Maxx
- Blue Seude Pumps from Bata
-Vintage necklace

Fall Favorite Make-Up Products.

FALL IS HERE!! I decided I would share my favorite fall make up products! ENJOY!


Foundation: Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua
- It is the perfect consistency, super light but makes your skin look flawless.

Pressed Powder: Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder
- I've talked about this product before it is amazing if you get oily through the day. It is also transparent so it doesn't look cakey.

Blush: Tarte Amazonian Clay in Color Blushing Bride
- It's a perfect plum- rose color that is stunning in the fall.

Highlighter: MAC Soft and Gentle mineralized skin finish
- I love this product, its not too bright or shiny its just the right amount. (PS I use this as an eye highlight too!)


Base: MAC Paint Pot in Painterly
-It is a perfect matte base to pile on any eyeshadow you want. It is nude so it doesn't disturb the color of your eyeshadow.

Eyeshadow: Urban Decay 15Th Anniversary Eye Palette
-This has many cool shades, I've been sticking to the browns lately like M.I.A., Deeper, and Midnight Rodeo

Mascara: Chanel Inimitable
- I got a sample of this last time I was at the Chanel counter. I usually don't mind drugstore mascara, but this one blew me away. It left my lashes curly, long and luscious and stayed on for a real long time.

Eyeliner: Almay Intense I-color
-It's the perfect carbon black, goes on super smooth, is cheap. Perfect for everyday use.


Lip Balm: EOS Lip balm in Honeysuckle
- I love the smell of this one and it leaves your lips moisturized and smooth.

Lip Stick: LimeCrime Limited Edition in GLAMOUR 101
- This is a perfect dark red wine color, for a glam night out.

Lip Gloss: NARS larger than life lipstick in Como
- This is a very fall color plumy and has perfect shine.

Outfit of the Day: Unicorns!

It's pretty hard to incorporate unicorns in to you wardrobe without looking crazy, I got it down though.
I think that this would even be appropriate for work.

You probably can't even see the unicorns, here is a closeup of the pattern.

In this outfit I am wearing,
-Black Cotton H&M Cotton Pencil Skirt
-Black H&M Tank Top
-Forever 21 Sheer Unicorn Synched Waist Blouse
-Vintage Necklace
- Studded Ankle Boots From Poland

I''m working on a few new post, in honor of Halloween and Gossip Girl being on the air. STAY TUNED :D

The weather here in Chicago has been amazing. Todays look I feel is perfect for those warm fall days.

In this looking I am wearing:
I am wearing a fake pleaded leather skirt from Bershka (Poland), which are on trend for the fall.
I wanted to keep the outfit simple so I paired it with an alternative apparel comfy V-neck.
The accessories are what bring the outfit together:
>My gold cross necklace(Forever 21),
> my gold cuff (thrift Store)
>Adding boots (TjMaxx) makes the outfit not only very appropriate for fall but it is also another layer of edgy.

Quick Update: Do you have Thin hair?

AHHHHHHHH Gossip GIrl in less than a week I am very excited. I plan on making a few Gossip Girl inspired posts for this occasion! Its been really hectic at school lately. Haven't had much time to blog, I'm sorry for that. I plan to try to have an outfit of the day blog at least once a week in the near future, so stay tuned.

On that note, I wanna ask you guys, what products do you use if you have really thin hair?

My roommate has really thin hair, and has tried everything to improve her situation. She recently bought the Pure Abundance Shampoo and Conditioner from AVEDA.

I decided to try it out, and let me tell you I am obsessed with the conditioner! It is made out of clay and it gives so much volume to my hair, without making it greasy and it keeps it soft which is hard to find.

So if you need volume, this conditioner, I approve.

I'm not as big of a fan of the shampoo because I feel like it leaves my hair a little knot-y, but it does what it says to, so if you want a fuller look I say go for it!

So i'm early for work so I decided to do a car blog, its better then no blog. I've been really busy lately but got some awesome blogs coming out soon!!! I just had lunch with my fellow blogger The Legacy Club!

What do you guys think about the new sheer shirt trend? Do you guys think its trashy or not?

I think its very hard to not look too trashy, unless you have put it together perfectly. This can be very hard to do! So I think I'm going to stay clear of this trend or at least wear a camisole underneath. But if you guys love it GO FOR IT!!! :)

I hope you guys have a wonderful weekend, Don't Party Too Much!!!

AHH School

I cannot believe school is starting tomorrow and the summer is almost over. It's very sad but everything good must come to an end. I also am very excited about fall fashion, and have some great ideas. Today my friend and I went back to school shopping at some outlets I got a few good things! One thing that I am in love with that I bought was this Dooney Bourke, its perfect for caring books and it is an adorable minty color with a vintage brown leather! The best part is it was $105!

Many post to come in the near future, I just couldn't contain my excitement for this bag!

Drug Store Products that Make Me Happy!

I love high-end products, because of their quality, but sometimes drug store products can be just as great. The problem with drug store products is they can be a hit or miss. This why I would like to share with you guys some product, that I would recommend, so you guys can skip all the missing :)

My very ultimate favorite product is Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder. I discovered this on my vacation and it is incredible. For years, I have been using Mac's studio Fix to set my foundation, but this product has made me drop my Mac Studio Fix. LOVE IT! Especially great if you have oily skin!

Another awesome product is the coloricon eyeshadow trios from Wet N Wild. To be honest I never really liked the Wet N Wild make up I thought it was of very bad quality and never looking like its suppose too, this product has changed my views. The shadows are very pigmented and look very pretty on the eyelid. I wouldn't use the brushes included but if you want a perfect eye look with a highlight and crease color these trios are perfecto, especially on the go.

A perfect way to take off your eye make up is Maybelline Expert Eyes eye makeup remover. Its very gentle but does the job quickly and efficiently. I have sensitive eyes and it has worked perfectly for me.

If your lips are dry this is what you need, Blistex medicated lip ointment in a tube. I wear this under my lip makeup everyday to keep my lips and hydrated. It iss also great for when my lips are chapped and gives them a nice tingly sensation.

European Summer.

So sorry for not posting anything while I was away. It was quite difficult to actually get fast internet in Poland, and I was quite busy as well. But once again I am back, and better then ever. Well at least I hope so... While I was overseas I discovered many new products, and have many new fashion idea that I will be sharing with you guys in the near future. One thing I noticed is that Stores like H&M and Zara are definitely a lot better stocked in Europe than here in America, and I'm gonna miss that while I'm home. If you are ever in Europe go check those stores out for awesome deals! Also, Love Love Love the store New Yorker!

Anyways I wanted to post some of my trip to keep you guys busy while I prepare for some bad ass blogging in the near future.


My friend Liz and I being Oh, so cool and popular in Berlin.

A typical night out included...

A post from the port.

Sorry for being M.i.a. for the past month. I have been a busy bee. I had finals a week ago and now as we speak/type I am at the airport. Yes I am going to europe well mostly Poland for two whole months. I will try to blog while im there but I know internet maybe difficult in some places. I will try my best :)

The airport is a very weird place, its soo diverse and people do not act like themselves. As I am a worldy traveler, I think ill share some of my traveling tricks for how to dress for your trip.

1. Check the weather at your destination.
2. Always wear long pants, if your your going to a place where its warm leggings may be better.(no matter how hot it is it will get cold on the plane.)
3. Wear a comfy t-shirt or blouse.
4. Bring a cardigan-blazer something to cover up with. (i try to pick something I wanna take on the trip but takes up the most space, this saves me room in my luggage.
5. Wear closed comfy shoes.(no heels, no flip flops, something east,to take off for security.)

If you feel like you need to stylish, you can always glam up your outfit. With a nice accesory such as a scarf, this is nice because it is not metal and you don't have to take it off trough security. Pick a nice cutr neutral bag for you trip and you will look stylish and be comfy on and off the plane.


PS expect a post from Poland soon!

Collective Haul and Diet Update

Sorry, guys I haven't posted anything in awhile, finals are being annoying!!!

Enjoy my Video!!

Sunday, April 17, 2011


Hey guys. So I've been quite busy with getting my youtube channel on it's way, and school coming to an end. But I wanted to share with you guys this cool site I recently discovered. It's called JewelMint. It's a website where they have awesome jewelry that matches your taste. When you sign up you take a quiz to determine you fashion sense and then you can choose stuff from your showroom. You get to choose a piece each month at 29.99 with free shipping. This is a GREAT deal because these pieces would retail at a much greater price. All the pieces are designed by Kate Bosworth and Cher Coulter, and they do an amazing job combining vintage with a modern twist in each piece.

This is the piece I bough this month.

Also, I'm back for a second round of my diet I'm more than half way to by goal!!!!

Dinner Goodbye, Limecrime Look #3

So my uncle moved to Turkey this Saturday. We had a goodbye dinner for him at a cute but tight Italian restaurant called Sabatino's on Irving Park The food was quite the delight, for the prices we paid. I decided to dress up, but not overboard. I work skinny jeans with some black heels and a black tank with a white lace top and a white blazer. I made quite the impression on my relatives. They also loved my make up! In this look I used Limecrime's new color "Coquette", which is a very nudy color. I'm usually not a huge fan of nude, but this one may be one of my favorite lipsticks now!


I attempted to get a close up of my eye and Lip but things didn't work out, due to still not having great lighting! SORRRY!!! If you have any questions just ask!

Limecrime look #2

Okay guys, So this time I took a risk. This is the color that had got me to purchase Limecrime in the first. Yes it is a little out there, and yes you can't wear it everywhere, but the color is so pretty. I could not resist. I decided to wear this to work, because we are suppose to wear all black. I usually like to spice up my look with accessories, but today I went beyond. With this Limecrime lipstick in the color "Mint To Be". I LOVE IT!

Seriously, how is this not "mint to be"

To balance out the look I did a nice light smokey eye. Close up time!



Artist Expression

Over the years I have collected things, that by themselves mean nothing.But to me mean a lot and a story behind each piece. I decide to take these that were just laying around and do something with them.

Ladies and Gentleman, I present the first Trendy Ways Art.
A Collection of Memories.

Limecrime look #1

Yup here it is my first Limecrime inspired look. The lighting in my house is horrible, so sorry if these are not to great. I'm working on a new set you for taking pictures and filming. So I promise soon!!!! Today I decided to go for the color "Retrofuturist", this is the bright red in the collection. I chose this color because I wore a very unique bright colorful dress by Marc Jacobs today and decided my makeup should be a little more classic. I did a clean cut dark smokey eye, instead of my usual colorful lids. I think it went well together with the red lips. NOTE: I did wear a little bit of lip gloss over the lipstick to give it shine and make it stay on longer. I used Femme Fatale '53 Chevy from the Luna Twilight line, it was perfection!





Can't believe its been a year... RIP MOMMY <3
