New beginnings can be frightening & exciting all at the same time. I feel as though my life has been on a fast track for the past year, with new opportunities around every corner.
This week I will be embarking on a new career path & I can't wait to see what's in store for me. I am truly blessed to be surrounded by so many people who love & support me. I have always believed that life is about the bonds we make & the special people we get to create & share our memories with. I can't thank my loved ones enough for always believing in me & pushing me at times where I didn't believe I could move. Thank you to my family & friends & a certain special someone for always being there for me to lean on. I love you.
It's official - I have turned to the dark side. I recently went shopping with my aunt in Montclair & stumbled upon my newest obsession, Bluemercury, a beauty-skincare-spa boutique. They carry all high end beauty products, so naturally I had to buy a new lipstick.
For the first time ever, I decided to try on a NARS lipstick & instantly fell in love with the formula. So smooth & rich! I've always been a big MAC girl but this lipstick has definitely convinced me to broaden my horizon because I am clearly missing out!
Fur, fur, fur & more fur! (well, faux fur that is..) My love for soft fuzzy things can be found in my wardrobe & all over my apartment - peep the faux fur rug behind me, found here. I saw this gorgeous champagne-colored jacket while 'window-shopping' in NYC & knew it was just the glam-factor my wardrobe needed.
Have an awesome fur piece of your own? Please share! I seriously can't get enough.
While shopping for the holidays, I ventured into Sephora to pick up a few things for my sister. Obviously I tried on a few new lipsticks & fell in love with Kat Von D's Everlasting lasting liquid lipstick in this gorgeous lilac, called Requiem.
To be honest, I seriously LOVE the color but I'm not so sure I about the formula. It became very dry, very quickly & didn't seem to last past my first cup of coffee. I will say it lasts a little longer & isn't as dry if you apply a coat of chap stick, followed by lip liner prior to application, but I'm not so sure I would purchase this product again based on my own preferences. I wear lipstick everyday, so I prefer moisturizing products. So for those of you who aren't a liquid lipstick kinda gal, I've made it my mission to find a great (less dry) dupe!
