They Created A Monster...

I've never been much of a makeup person; I'm known for wearing concealer, eyeliner and mascara   on my best days, if anything at all. So when my girlfriends convinced me to plump up my collection a little more, I don't think they realized that they may have created a monster...

Yeah... when I start shopping, it's definitely a little hard for me to stop, but I can say I'm overall extremely happy with my beauty purchases! And it doesn't hurt that I got great deals on everything through Ebates, Sephora VIB discounts and online beauty deals. Here's the break down of what I picked up:

MORPHE 686 SET: Brushes upon brushes upon brushes! For a girl who's literally only used 3 makeup brushes in her entire life, this can be overwhelming, but surprisingly it's not. I have yet to tap into the ten plus eye brushes, but am obsessed with the face brushes. They work extremely well when contouring and give a flawless finish.


MORPHE 35K PALLETE: Whenever I open up these shades, I want to shed a tear. These 35 shades are absolutely everything! There's shimmer and matte shades and they're all these earthy almost coffee tones. My only issue with Morphe is their extremely long processing time. It took just over 3 weeks for me to receive this pallete and the brush set, which were both in stock!

BEAUTYBLENDER: It may seem crazy to say but I've never owned a Beautyblender Beauty Blender before. *say that 5 times fast* My usual go to blender is from Real Techniques, but I thought I'd try out the "real" thing for once. Plus with my VIP 20% off discount, it was only right that I shelled out the $25 for the blender and mini solid. 

MAC PRO LONGWEAR CONCEALER: When it comes to concealer, I think I found my match. This is actually my 4th refill of this concealer in 2 years, so I'm definitely sticking to this amazing product. NW40 is a perfect match for my skin tone. As I don't use foundation (I don't like the feeling of too many products on my face) this is a great way to mask my minimal blemishes without "caking" up my face.

MAC PRE+PRIME: Highlight highlight highlight! I live by this highlighter! All though this is very similar to my skin tone as well. I think it gives me that added glow underneath my eyes when combined with my Nars cream highlighter. 

LIVING PROOF: Okay, so I have to admit, my girlfriends weren't the ones who told me to buy this product...Kim K did. Or one of her beauty tutorials available through her app did. So far I've used the hairspray and dry shampoo. And They Are AMAZING! I can't get over how good they smell and make my hair feel absolutely fantastic. 

LAURA MERCIER SECRET CAMOUFLAGE: I must admit, this is another Kim Kardashian pick courtesy of her go-to makeup artist Mario. I'm excited to see what this product will do for me in terms of contouring and highlighting.

URBAN DECAY URBAN VICES: I rarely cash in my Sephora rewards, but when I saw this shadow palette, I thought why not. Although the shades are not very pigmented, It's not a bad 500 point reward.

MAC LIPSTICKS: Every girl needs a great lip. So why not buy 4 great shades! Overall these are really nice shades for my skin tone. From Left to right (SIN, MAC RED, CARDINAL, STONE). My ultimate favorite of the four would have to be stone lined with Chestnut. 

**For Liners, I'm loving Chestnut and Currant. I'm actually addicted to just wearing chestnut all over the lip and nothing else**

NARS LARGER THAN LIFE EYELINER: Last but certainly not least, would have to be my NARS long lasting eyeliner. Being that my eyes water pretty much all the time (blame the fact that I'm pretty much on the computer 24/7 for work) I'm constantly searching for an eyeliner that will last me throughout the day, and I'm pretty sure I found it. This liner is super pigmented and goes on easy enough to give me that smokey feel. 

The Posh Way to Sell

When you have a shopping addiction like mine, you have to learn how to subsidize your habit. The way I like to sooth the blow on my pockets is with my handy dandy resale app Poshmark.

 I post my slightly used items (shoes, handbags and clothing) at 25-50% off and watch it sell. It's quick and easy and the fact that I can do it on my phone makes clearing out my closet that much easier. Buyers can make an "offer" on an item at a lower price or haggle in the comments, but the most important thing is that I'm constantly clearing out my closet. 

 Payment and shipping are all done through Poshmark, making it even less stressful. They provide you with a tracking number and give buyers 3-days after arrival to confirm before they release the funds to you. 

I've been using the app for about 3 years now and have successfully sold over 50 items and have made $2000+! Plus I'm ranked in the Top 10% of sellers. So I definitely won't be stopping anytime soon :)

Perfecting the Look: Denim for Fall

Fall fashion reigns supreme in my closet. From my go-to leather jacket to chunky knit sweaters and my new favorite distressed boyfriend jeans, Fall is the time to layer up and look fab. And what better way to stay stylish in the cool than with denim! Here are a few of my picks to rock the perfect pair of jeans this season.

70's Chic

 Who doesn't love a bellbottom? I'm so happy the trend is back this season and I'm planning on taking it on 100%. I found an awesome pair of flares from Topshop (which has become my favorite for denim) and this ponte mock neck shirt from American Apparel to really get that 70's essence. I finished off the look with my favorite cognac platforms from Steve Madden.

**To get that floor grazing look with your flares, buy your jeans at a longer length**

Slightly Distressed

I've never been the type to rock the distressed look and I'm not really sure why not. I've been wanting a pair of slouchy boyfriend jeans for sometime now, and I found the perfect pair for $40! For more of a sexy going out look, I paired these jeans with a olive body suit and brown heels. You could definitely do a nice wedge with this look as well.

Now, I bet you're thinking a body suit and baggy jeans = fashion disaster, but paired together it still gives some mystery while showing minimal skin. I compare this look to Kendall Jenner's  exposed hip bone look in Fausto Puglisi at the 2014 MuchMusic Awards. It's risky but tasteful at the same time.

If you want to take a more rock-glam approach, pair your slouchy denim with a graphic tee and a leather jacket. It's the perfect cool-girl look for fall. And if you want to take it even more casual, switch out your heels for a pair of converse or wedge sneakers.

                               Top: Paris Eleven Exclusive for Intermix Leather Jacket: Zara


My favorite look this Fall will definitely be boho chic. While I love being edgy and on trend when it comes to my leather and flares, it never hurts to stick with the classics. I'm going to get a lot of wear out of my favorite Jamie Jeans from Topshop. A flowy silk top with a graphic kimono will take this look to the next level, and we can't forget about suede bootie.

Strike a Pose

Working in fashion has given me a lot of opportunities to work behind the camera. From celebrity shoots for magazines to catalogue shoots for our newest collections, I've spent days directing models and photographers to get the best shots. It's something that I really love to do and can call one of my passions, but I've never been in front of the camera.... until now

At this week's Maslavi shoot, I had an impromptu session in front of the camera with photographer Yasmine Asha, and let's just say I think I killed it! Not tooting my own horn but, all those years of posing models sure didn't hurt me. 

What I'm wearing: Eleven Paris "Life Is A Joke" Kate Moss Tee exclusive for Intermix, Steve Madden "Marlenee" Sandal, Zara Leather Jacket (from 2 years ago) and Necessary Clothing Boyfriend Jeans

Why MYHABIT is Life: CELINE Dreams

I have a serious obsession with online shopping. My mom would call it an addiction, but that's another story for another day. As an "avid" online shopper, I've learned that it's not about how much you shop, it's about how SMART your shop. You should always search for the best deals in order to never pay full price. I don't know if it's because I've been so spoiled working in the fashion industry these last few years, but I can't image paying retail and feeling satisfied when I know I can get a percentage off. 

With that being said, one of my favorite places to shop online are the daily/weekly deal sites offering designer merchandise for upwards of 60% off. My go-to site would have to be MYHABIT, and just like the name I make it a point to check for deals on a regular basis.

Today was no different, but I did shed a quick tear or two when I saw what was on sale today on MYHABIT....



When I tell you I let out a little squeal at my desk, I'm probably understating my reaction by probably 75 percent.  

MYHABIT currently has the iconic CELINE Phantoms on sale for 20% off of their $3k price tag. Although it may not be in everyone's price bracket right now, I can't help but smile at how amazing sites like this are for fashionistas looking to save while still staying on trend! 

To save even MORE money, MYHABIT is one of the sites that give back via and right now they are at 5% cash back, which would take off an additional $125! Just think about the savings!

If I had my way, and didn't need to be an adult and pay my rent this month, I would definitely score one of these chic tote's for my closet. But instead, I will admire and hope that MYHABIT will once again have an amazing sale like this! 

Check out these other amazing styles available in the CELINE MYHABIT sale. You may just want to splurge :)

Summer Time Prep: Bathing Suit Wish List

I can't believe it's the last week of March and I still have to worry about whether I should start packing up my winter clothes or if I'll still need my hat and scarf come Easter. But there's one thing I can thankfully look forward to and that's the warmer weather and beach trips that come with the summer season. Unfortunately being that I'm officially an adult in the "real" working world (I swear I'm still young though), I no longer get excited for spring break trips like I did in college. Instead my summer season officially starts Memorial Day Weekend with the rest of America and my first stop will be on an island beach with a drink in my hand, sunglasses on my face and hopefully a cute guy by my side **crosses fingers**.

While I already have three trips booked for this summer getaways, the first thing on my beach trip check list is finding the right suit. One pieces, Bikinis, high waists and yes, thongs; For being the least amount of clothes that you can respectfully wear out in public, there's so many different styles to choose from. Here are some of my picks for Summer 2015.

The High Cut One Piece


I know, I know... this is definitely not the one piece you wore in third grade. Just think of it as an upgraded Baywatch suit that makes you feel as smokin' as Pamela Anderson running across the beach or better yet Ariel coming out of the water first time with legs next to a waterfall--yes, I've been a little Disney obsessed since Cinderella came out.

Last fall I picked up this white high cut one piece from American Apparel for my annual trip to the Mother Land. As I've developed some larger assets in the last few years, I don't necessarily feel as comfortable in a skimpy bikini as I once did. What I like about this once piece is that it's covering while also keeping your look sexy.

I'm loving the high cut one pieces from Myra Swim. This brand takes 80's and 90's classic cuts and blends them with modern minimalist style to create the perfect suits. Their Claudia and Elle One pieces are my absolute favorite for 2015. Although these are double the price of the AA suits, I'd still recommend these for their color selection and the fact that they aren't as commercialized.

The 2 Piece


While I have become a bit overly obsessed with the one piece, I do love a high-waisted bikini. These suits are the perfect way to really show off a skinny waist. I'm literally obsessed with this Mesh style suit worn by  Nazanin from Minimale Animale. You can pick up a similarly sexy mesh suit from Victoria's Secret.

Don't think you can pull off the high waisted look? No worries! Try for a high-rise string bikini bottom. You'll be surprised out how much the V-shaped design will elongate your waist to give you a slimmer frame. Not to mention, it's just the hottest look for Summer.


I'm also really loving the more "sporty" look for swimwear. NastyGal has a boat load of new swim styles that have just the right amount of sex appeal and sporty-chicness. No more underwire for me that's for sure.
