these boots are made for walkin'

These boots are so freakin comfortable! I got them at Zara's summer sale (orig. price $279), I scored them for $80!! I have my eye on a couple more pair of boots from Zara, AND my new obsession Jeffrey Campbell Pixie!!!

my next big investment

...well to me at least.

I have a lot of random makeup, from Chanel, to Dior, to Bobbi Brown, to Benefit...etc, you get the idea. I have decided that I am going to consolidate everything, gradually. So today, I went out to MAC and bought 2 palettes; one for eyeshadows and one for blush. To fill the palettes fully would run me well over $300, so I am going to do it gradually; I'll buy 2-3 per month (but will likely buy a large chunk at Duty Free when I go to NYC in Dec). 

I also need to invest in some brushes, I also have very random brushes, from Sephora & Bobbi Brown. Not that I don't like them, I just want all of them to be uniform, likely from MAC.

Since this post is about Beauty, I'd like to talk about a few of my favorite items.

1.) Makeup remover: From Sephora $14. For many years I always used the Bi-Facial from Lancome, great makeup remover I have to say. However, I find that it was too oily and in hindsight quite expensive at $34. I recently just stared using the Sephora brand makeup remover, and I have to say that I love it! I haven't tried it with mascara yet though because I have lash extensions, so I'm not sure if it's very effective with mascara.

2.) Powder: Chanel Mat Lumiere $60. I have used different powders while experimenting with makeup, I've tried MAC, Nars, drug store brands. Non of them compare to this! It is soft, and silky. It's just amazing!

3.) Eye Liner: Bobbi Brown Gel Liner $28. I love, LOVE this product! It stays on forever, absolutely amazing!

4.) Cheeks: Benefit High Beam $24. This product is so wonderful, one of the best sellers from Benefit. A couple dabs on the cheeks and your skin looks super translucent! This can also be mixed with your foundation, for an overall complexion enhancer.

5.) Brows: Benefit Speed Brow $16. Tames your brows in no time! Goes on clear, and really shapes your brows. I recently discovered this and I love it! However the down side to it is that one tube doesn't last very long.

My dream is to have one of those vanities filled with makeup, and makeup brushes, and perfumes. Hopefully by the time we move into our presale condo I'll be able to have my dream vanity!!

additions to my closet

From left to right:

1.) Old pink casual top from Jacob. I love that this top has a rounded edge at the bottom
2.) Gray & blue snood from H&M
3.) Casual yellow T from Club Monaco... I actually have this shirt in 2 other colors, so comfy!
4.) Talula lace top in white with a tinge of pink. Fell in love right when I saw this top, so feminine and cute! Loving the scalloped bottom and sleeves!

it was meant to be...

So the story behind these shoes... It was really love at first sight. I bought them at Zara. A couple days later I actually decided to return them, as I was going through my whole "shopping ban phase". I never really let them go fully. Then I saw someone else wear them on their blog and that's when I knew I had to have them again. I couldn't find them in downtown, but on Saturday when I went shopping with my bff I was on a hunt!!! They were hiding... but I sure as hell found them!!! These wedges are awesome! I am not a high heel kinda girl, so the wedge heel is the next best thing. The flap can be worn up or down, they are just awesome!!!

fall favorite

I absolutely love chunky knits for the fall. On a day like today, when it's not quite cold enough for a jacket/coat, it's the perfect thing to throw on. I bought the gray one from H&M and the ivory one at Urban outfitters. Love them both! I am still waiting for the Aritzia Wilfred Free one to come back in stock, I so regret not picking it up a month ago.
