the winners of my contest!

hey guys!!! I took a little break from blogging due to exams and Christmas shopping, which is btw insane! I picked a winner for my contest on Saturday and finally got around to contact them today! and as you see in the last picture winner #1 is Kammy's Mama , and winner #2 is Sissy a la mode!!! They both wanted the Lush set, but unfortunately only one could have it, so since Sissy a la mode was the second one who I drew, she gets the LC book!!! But I hope both of them will be satisfied with the prize they got.

Another post tonight!!!!

Home with Bella

Yesterday I spent most of my day studying except for this one hour when Bella wouldn't leave me alone. She just kept jumping onto the couch and slowly smelling her way into my lap. So, I decided to take advantage of her pisitive attitude and snap few pictures with her. I mean she is usually very moody and doesn't want to play much, but yesterday it was a whole different story with her.
I hope you guys will enjoy.

A little shopping haul.

Due to enormous sales and specials I've been hitting my bank account very hard. I've done some Christmas shopping as well already, so I'm not being totally selfish;)
Zara light brown suede pumps. They are pointed toe pumps with a preety high heel. I do find them hard to walk in though, just because the heel is not very stable. I don't know about you guys, but I've noticed that all my Zara shoes have that problem. Maybe I need to stop going after a thin heel and pick a more chunky one. But that's besides the point. I love them anyway and can't wait to wear them.
Now, I know nude is so last year. However, I could never find a perfect pair before. And by that I mean, I could never find the perfect pair that my wallet could afford. I even told myself to forget about it and stop looking for them. So, guess what happened? Yesterday, I went to TJmaxx just to look around and I saw these! and in my size! just sitting there by themselves! They were $40, which in my opinion is a good deal. They fit very well and are made by Guess. These are my first Guess shoes, so I'm not sure how long they will last me, but yeah, it was a very exciting moment;)
And last... drum roll... My Lanvin for H&M dress was delivered this week and I was very excited to try it on. I didn't pay more then it was in the store (bought it on eBay), and did not regret buying a black one. Do you guys remember, they had this dress in bright yellow? It was more popular than this boring black. But I like to keep thing simple, so it works for me.

The quality is not the best, but the ruffles stay puffed out in place and do not go flat ( I thought they would), which is perfect. I had some problems with the zipper, but after 20 min or so I figured it out. It was stuck on some piece of material and would not go up or down. Does this ever happen to you? to me - very often. Over all i am satisfied, but do not think it's worth the money. Why I bought it? Because it's Lanvin;)

I hope this post wasn't too boring. I just felt like sharing some of my latest purchases with you guys. I also bought a ton of skin care and beauty products. But I will just include the ones that I like in my monthly favorites.

Tomorrow is Monday! Boo! But Christmas is coming!!!!

Just in time...

... for my previous post. Look how gorgeous Leighton Meester looks?! I love it! she is a beauty to begin with, not to mention that she's also a top list fashonista. And she rocks this mans suit!

Dress me like a boy!

Due to the excessive use of my denim shirt, I've been really into manly dress code. For me it's the edge of the look and the comfort. Most of the time it's loose fitting and soft material - every day wear. I think we all love our slouchy denim shorts, or boyfriend jeans, don't we?

I am also obsessed with the "minimalist" coat designs that are so in this season.

I have one yet to share with you.

Happy Sunday, everyone!!!

November Favorites.

I had taken these picture to have the monthly favorites on time, but I've been ... busy... what else is new.
But lets get staright to the post:

1. Yes to Cucumbers facial towelettes. I just finished the second pack and went to Target to get 2 new ones. I cant get enough! I use it every night to remove my make up before I cleanse my face with Clarisonic.
2. Proactive spot treatment lotion. Everytime I feel like a pimple is coming up, I just put some of this in that area and it decreases the life of the acne. Sounds gross, but I know many people suffer with acne, or periodic pimple or two.
3. Lancome Bi-Facil eye makeup remover. Just finished this sampler and yesterday bought the full bottle. This thing is pricy, but it works for me and doesn't irritate the skin around my eye.
4. Moroccan Oil hair treatment. I bought a little bottle (25ml) to try it out and already know I will be back at the store to get more. I use it everytime I get out of the shower on wet/damp hair. It leaves my hair shiny and healthy looking. And my hair feels fuller and thicker. So, I like.
5. Maybelline Dream Mouse concealer. In October I used the other Maybelline concealer ( Mineral one), and I liked it a lot, but this one is sooo good! I really like it! I use a concealer brush for it though, so it is a little messy. My shade is Light 4-5.
6. Loreal Secret professional make up base. I can't say enough things about it. I really like it.
7. Loreal Double Extend mascara and Lash serum. I've been usung it since November 7th, every night I use the lash serum and during the day I use the mascara. I can't say that I'v eseen dramatic difference, but I did see some improvement in my lashes. They are fuller. I will continue using this for the next few more weeks and then I will do a full review.
8. MAC velvet eyeshadow in Mulch. Perfect brown, with a little bit of shimmer.
9. ELF studio Powder Brush. I am back to this brush, because it is really my favorite of all time. I love this brush for applying liquid foundation. It takes seconds for perfect application. Time saver for sure.
10. ELF studio Concealer Brush. Love this brush with the maybelline dream mouse concealer.
11. MAC Cremesheen lipstick in Creme Cup. You guys know how much I love Hue, and this one is also in the nude family but a little bit on the pink side. I decided to use this one just to change things up.
12. MAC Viva Glam Gaga lipglass. I'm not the one to use lipglosses a lot but I do like this one. I have the Viva Glam Gaga lipstick too and sometimes I feel like it's too pink, especially if it's winter and you don't have that summer tan to compliment it. SO for the winter skin lipgloss is my choice. It's more sheer and not too pink. The consistency of this product is nice too" smooth, moisturizing.

Swatches: MAC Mulch eye shadow, Viva Glam Gaga lipglass, Cremesheen lipstick in Creme Cup.
