The Big Apple, over any charming place.

Hello, my dear bloggers!
Just to warn you, this post will be super long, due to insane amount of pictures I collected today at NYC. I'm posting pictures of beautiful Broadway, where from June 24th through September 3rd, "Sidewalk - Catwalk" project will be taking place. I loved every single dress. Absolutely made my day even better than it was already! I took a trip to the city today with the girls and it was so laid back, and so easy. We ate, shopped, walked around, and simply enjoyed the hot summer day. We visited the new Forever 21 store, the one on Times Square! It's huge!!! And guess what their working hours are??? From 8 AM - till 2 AM!!! Isn't that crazy!!! I mean it's great for people who are visiting the city, they can shop till the morning! I personally love the idea! lol
The first picture is in the F21 store on the first floor! How insane is this?
As you can tell, I had a blast!
And I would like to take a moment and thank all of my followers for all the nice comments you leave me every day! Thank you so much! It means so much to me, and makes my day - every day!

Elizabeth Taylor: 25 things you don't know about me.

Ok, so we all know the legendary dame, Elizabeth Taylor. I picked up "Us Weekly" last night to catch up on gossip and found this cute little thing about her. It's 25 things she tells the magazine about herself. I found it very sweet.
1. Before I made films, I had a lemonade stand in Southern California.
2. When Jose Eber is out of town, I love to cut my hair and anyone else's
3. I'm mad for Law & Order and have seen every sigle episode
4. I converted to Judaism in 1959
5. My Jewish name is Elisheba Rachel
6. My first horse was named Betty
7. I didn't go on a date until I was 16
8. My legs are too short
9. The film I'm proudest of is Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
10. I never face the day without parfume
11. I dreamed of designing parfume 25 years before I did it
12. I love blood-orange juice
13. My very first memory is of pain.
14. I'm still heart broken that Richard (Burton) never won the Oscar
15. I am sincerely not worried about getting old
16. I never tried to act until The Place in The Sun
17. I am disgusted by the amount of myth about me that is accepted as fact
18. People on Twitter named my new fragrance, Violet Eye
19. I've never had acting lessons, though many people think I need them
20. In my twenties, I nearly lost my eye and my leg. I still have both of them, tee hee.
21. Nerves are the nemesis of all actors
22. I hate being called Liz, because it can sound like such a hiss
23. I believe you can be close to god anywhere
24. My dog Delilah is in love with my cat Fang. To each his own
25. My family and people with HIV/AIDS are my life

And then, in the same magazine I found this ad. Dress rental, girls!!! I haven't checked it out but I think it's a fun idea.

Alright, I'm off to work. I'm really not feeling like doing it today, but being a grown up sucks!
Ciao, chikas!!!

Random beauty stuff

Oh boy! I'm finally getting around to do my monthly beauty haul. This month I didn't get much stuff, just the things that I ran out of. And the things that I have wanted to try out for a while.
So, the first two products are the two MAC lipsticks. The one on the left is "Creme de nude" and the one the right is "Hue". I've been using them for the past 2 weeks and I like them a lot. They are very similar to my ELF mineral lipsticks (runway pink and nicely nude), except ELF lipsticks are very matte and these are more creamy.
Then we have 2 nail polishes. OPI "what's with the cattitude" and Orly "In a snap" top coat. I was looking for a good top coat and Orly has about 6 different ones. I went with this one cause I like my top coat to dry super fast, and I have to say that it did not disappoint. It's pretty good.
In the middle picture of my collage we have Sarah Jessica Parker parfume "Covet". I got this parfume at TJMaxx for $13 on clearance! I cannot say that I love the smell, but it is something different for me. It smells like ginger, citrus, and spice. I do like it though, cause the smell is very fresh.
On the lower right corner we have my Shishedo bronzer( I repurchased this product). I love this bronzer!!! It's absolutely perfect. It has shimmer, but the shimmer is so fine that it doesn't make you look like a shiny disco ball. And the color combination is very warm. If you like bronzers, go to Nordstrom near you and check it out. It's good!!!
And right next to it is my other bronzer/blush. I didn't buy this, I got this as a gift from my boy's cousin. The brand of this make up is called Oriflame and the name of the line is Giordani Gold and is represented by 2 Gs (GG). It is more of a blush than a bronzer but I do like it. Most European countries have this brand available to them.
Next we have MAC's cream blush in "Lady Blush". I like this blush a lot. Mainly because it has a peachy undertone to it, which matches my skin well. I do find it hard to apply, though. Because it's very pigmented. SO, I need to use very little of it to get the color I want. Something tells me that I will have this blush FOREVER!
And the last good product will be MAC's eyeshadow in color "Twinks". It looks beautiful. If you like brown colors you have to check it out at your nearest MAC counter. I use it everyday, since I got it.
Now, the last product from my collage is this Tarte cheek stain/blush in color Dollface. It's like a cream stick and I hate it!!!! It smells bad, and I have to rub it so much before I even notice any color on my cheeks. It has a greasy consistency too! I just cannot stand this product! And I regret paying $24 for it! Also, applicator is very uncomfortable. You have to push the bottom with a thumb in order to get the blusher out. So not practical..
And on this note, that will be it for the month of June so far. I did buy some things at H&M and ZARA, but I guess, I will include it in my outfit post.
I hope all of you are having a good summer!
So far, we didn't have that many hot days, but I think they are on their way!
What are your summer essentials this year?
Let me know, cause I'm thinking of putting together a list of trendy things for summer 2010.
Till next time, XOXO, Olya

Friday sweets

I have a problem. I have no idea what to get for father's day. I went to the stores like Brookstone... and ... nothing. He has everything he needs, so what do you get fot him? Please help!!!

And these are my cupcakes, that I made for work. They were gone within 5 minnutes! I think this time they came out perfect! I made just a right amount of frosting to make them super cute and I found these cute paper cups and sprinkles that matched!!! How freaking adorable?!

Have a great weekend, guys!!!!


June 16, 2010

nothing to match.

Outfit of the day/night. I have to say that sometimes I get super lazy and don't want to dress up, no matter what. I guess, today was that type of a day. I did wear my Aldo wedges, though. I love them. Mostly because they are super comfortable and because they have studs on them. I know that studs are not here to stay forever, but I do like the trend. So, I might as well wear them while I can. Also, because of the humid weather that we are having I decided to spare my hair from curling and straightening and just have it in a pony tail like EVERY DAY. And I've been into pale make up dos. My random writing can go on forever, but I will cut it now.

Have a great day, bloggers:)

XOXO, Olya

I thought I didn't need you...

I've been experimenting with Picasa 3. I wish I would have the Photoshop, but yet I don't want to spend money on it. Plus, I still need to buy a nicer camera and a better laptop. So, for now I will use Picasa and it will have to work.
In the images I'm wearing my mom's skirt and blouse. She has all this clothes in her closet that she doesn't even use.
The skirt is by La Perla and it's made out of silk. The blouse doesn't have a tag and it's so old that we can probably consider it vintage. Lol.
Anyway, I had fun going through her stuff. Most of them are very simple and yet, something about it, makes me very interested.
I actually wish I had my mom's clothes from the 80's. She had some good stuff.
Do you like your mom's style? and do you share things?
P.S. I'm wearing my Jimmy Choo for H&M sandals.

Manly VS Feminine



I think this one will be good. Personally, Eclipse is my favorite book out of 4 and I cannot wait to see the movie. And then Harry Potter is coming out. This summer just can't bring better movies!!!

Rain or shine we were there.

Hello, girls!
I've been super lazy to take pictures and really enjoying the nice weather that we are having.
Today, though, we went to NYC with Anna, who is visiting US this summer, to show her some stuff. She is such a sweet girl! I really enjoyed going around the city with her even though it was raining all day. My nice curles were replaced by frizz and windy hair. lol. But anyway, I had lots of fun. We went to see Times square, Central Park, M&M store, and bunch of other parks in the city. OH! and today was the TONY awards in the city, so they had a red carpet and stuff. We just passed by though.
I wore my H and M dress with Zara sandals and M by MJ bag. I realy hate the belt on this dress, and I usually replace it with my nice leather belt. However, for some stupid reason I wore it today, and it looks really weird. Idk.
Oh, and I'm not sure if you will be able to see in these pictures, but my nails are bright baby blue color. It's the OPI Shrek collection polish in "What's with the cattitude?". I absolutely love the name of it!!! I think it's hilarious!
So, I guess thats it. I will try to post more post this coming week.
Have a good one, sweets:)
