Peeking through Windows

The holiday season has to be one of my favorite times of the year.  Aside from the wonderful family gatherings and the comfort foods in abundance it's also the time of year where department stores show off their creative juices and deck out their stores front windows.  On Black Friday I took to the streets of fifth avenue and took  pics of a few eye dazzling store fronts.

On your Marc

Nothing sweeter than spending a Saturday with the editors of Teen Vogue and the latest fashions of Marc by Marc Jacobs.  Yesterday  I took my first steps into the well known department store Bergdorf Goodman to take in some music, sweets and fashion inspirations.  The event featured Teen Vogue Editors  top Marc for Marc Jacobs accessory picks for the soon to come holiday season.   Party goers were treated to sweet treats, mocktails, a giveaway ( two lucky peeps walked away with a Marc Jacobs bag)  and my favorite highlight since I wasn't among the bag winners was the  Minx nail applications.  Take a peek inside to see the festivities.

Fierce Spotlight: Simone

With my almost daily visits to Sephora and mountains of beauty products taking a permanent residence under my bathroom sink it’s safe to say I’m a makeup fiend.  And you know what I'm ok with that.  Mostly because I know that I don’t stand alone in my obsession.  In fact I found a good ol’ college friend, Simone who understands my unhealthy fascination with makeup, quite well.  As I was browsing her FB pics  (oh don't act like you don't stalk fb profiles too)  I was amazed by her stunning makeup looks.  It was hard to deny her talents with makeup.  I knew right away that I had to share her creativity with the masses.   After a few email exchanges she agreed to allow me to spotlight her and answered a few quick questions about her favorite products and how she got started with makeup.

1. What are your favorite products that you can't live without?
 My favorite products that I can't live without would be MAC lipglass (but there are a few I adore like Viva Glam VI), Urban Decay eyeliner in Zero or Milani's blue eyes liner and Covergirl Lash Blast in black. 

2. How did you get started with makeup? 
I actually started playing with my mom's makeup basket when I was a kid. She had this blue eyeliner and bronze shadow that I completely coveted when she wasn't looking (lol). 

3. Have you considered making makeup a career choice?
I have considered it for a long time. 

4. What is your makeup advice to live by?
My advice would be to remember to exfoliate and moisturize

Many thanks Simone for allowing me to share a piece of you on I wanna be fierce.  

So guys tell me are you a makeup fiend?

Weekend at Grandma's

It was a pretty relaxing Saturday for me.  I decided to take a trip  on over to the Bronx and pay a visit to Grandma Lila.  I chatted it up with her and got in her way once or twice as she prepared sweet potato pie.  I instantly morphed into a little girl as I anxiously waited for the pie to be done.  Asking every twenty seconds, "is it done yet".  And let me tell you when it was done you better believe I tore my slice up. Ok maybe the three slices but hey judge don't me, it was good.  After devouring my slices I decided to take a few pics of my outfit.  The weather has taken a bit of a turn in NYC and we are officially in coat weather.  I decided to layer my furry vest with my faux leather jacket to keep warm and to my surprise it did.

Inspired by B

I'm sure most of you witnessed all of the web world buzzing earlier this week after pregnant songtress, Beyonce recently donned a pair of Alain Quilici's Payson Skate Lace-Up Booties.  These five inch bad boys gained much attention for its very unique look.  The towering booties closely resemble an ice skate.  As everyone had their eyes on B's sick shoe game I  on the other hand took a liking to her red blazer and skinny jean combo.  All things that I already had in my closet.  Go inside to see what B inspired.
