Christmas Mood Board ...

I never feel more glamorous than I do during Christmas time! I think about the Plaza in New York, the snowy sceneries in Paris, classical jazzy holiday music and furry rhinestone dresses.  Pictures can give a whole lot of emotion and mood. I love having mood boards, they provide inspiration. I use my WeHeartIt as one big inspiration board year round! It makes me so happy to look at, and gives me most of my inspiration for videos and blogging. None of these pictures are mine, although I wish I had taken them because there so beautiful! Even though I'm into social media, I still love to take time and catch things in the moment. I never take as many picture of things as I want to. I am hoping to take some beautiful pictures like these this holiday season because its such a gorgeous time of year!

Weekend Trip to NYC ...

 So this weekend I took a little weekend trip to New York City with my mom! My whole family including myself, is from New York. Some from upstate and some from the city. We visit there very often whether it's for work, to shoot, to see family, or just for fun! This weekend was just for fun, we went shopping, got great photos, and ate AMAZING food!

We stayed at the 11 Howard Hotel, which was really pretty! It had a very aesthetically pleasing bathroom which I loved! The first day we went to china town and walk around, we also ate dinner with my family. We went to this restaurant called "Rosie's", I HIGHLY recommend it! Probably some of the best hispanic food, besides mine and my mom's of course! My outfit from this day, I wore my huge printed sweater from h&m, with levi's jeans. *Both sweaters I wore on the trip are sadly sold out!* I had a black furry hat and my mini gold & black YSL bag. The boots I wore replicated a pair of Balenciaga's (which I ended up buying the real ones the next day) Totally worth it!

The second day we went out to brunch at "Nickle and Diner", which was also fricken amazing. That place is worth a try if you live in the city or get to visit!Also it's across the street from the hotel which was very convenient! This day I wore a white sweater also from h&m with white ribbed flowy pants from Zara. I wore black heeled boots also from Zara with my same YSL bag, and a vintage oversized black denim jacket. My necklace is from The M jewelers and the Sunnies are from mymummadeit. ( Everything will be linked below) We went shopping some more this day, I bought the Balenciaga boots and some things from Opening Ceremony!

We then went over to the Bite Beauty store because they invited us in to make some custom lipsticks! It was super cute and a really fun experience. After that we stopped by a flower shop next door and heading home on our train!

Current Favorite Makeup Products! ...

 Lately I have noticed I have been wearing less and less makeup! I am so much more comfortable with my bare face and I sometimes even prefer no makeup! When I do wear makeup I like to keep it very light, natural, and of course glowing skin. These are some of my favorite products I have been using that I love! ( All product links below!)

This primer from Giorgio Armani is really great for my skin. Its super moisturizing & hydrating, as well as it has a lot of SPF. My skin is so dry it drinks up my makeup, so a good hydrating primer is key for me!

This Aqua Luminous foundation from Becca quickly became my FAV foundation ever! It wakes my skin look insanely amazing without covering my freckles. I hate a full coverage foundation and I also hate matte! The texture is great, the finish is great, its all around a really good foundation for me.

I also have been using this Chanel concealer like crazy! I bought it in DC with some friends on a whim and I love it! I used it all up so quickly and need to get a new one ASAP. Its meant to be a face illuminator, so I just use it to highlight my under eyes, but it still gives medium coverage for darkness!

I am so happy I discovered highlighter because it is now the number one thing I need it my makeup routine! Its a life saver for a girl with dry skin. My favorite highlighters currently are these Laura Mercier highlighters! They sent them to me a little while back and I fell in love! All the colors are gorgeous and they have great pigmentation. 

For some reason whenever the fall and winter times comes I start to experiment with eyeshadow. I never wear it in the summer, but now i'm starting to use it more! I have been grabbing this Marc Jacobs palette a lot recently! They sent me them in every color, but I love this neutral palette. 

This summer the only thing I wore on my lips was clear gloss, it's my Go-To! I love having juicy glossy lips, but again when the fall and winter comes I like to darken up the color. This Nars lipgloss and Hourglass lipstick are the perfect warm nude for me! I still keep things glossy, but I love how the tones of these lip colors look on me!

Outfits ...

Recently Tiger Mist sent me some super cute items to me in the mail, so of course I instantly styled them! The first piece I picked out was this gorgeous white rouched open back dress. I styled them with sneakers and an oversized Levi's jacket to make the look casual. Of course you could dress this up with heels and a furry coat! Im in love with the way the dress fits me, its one of those dresses you just don't want to take off! 

The second thing I got were these white and black lace up sweatpants. Who doesn't love a good pair of sweatpants, you are hella comfortable and you look cute! I love styling them up with heeled boots and a cropped t- shirt. Here I went casual and wore black ankle boots and a cropped matching sweatshirt. 

They also sent me a really pretty black dress but i'm planning on wearing it to an event soon so I didn't want to show it off yet! They also sent me an off the shoulder top which I am wearing in this Friday's video! The last thing they sent me was a red striped matching set. As always the pants are too big on me because i'm so short, but I might get out my mom skills are seam them to be my size!
