Purple & Tie Dye

This is the Bikini that I ended up getting from Victorias Secret.  It is a neon purple top with blue and purple tie dye.  It is really different from what I originally wanted but I love them and I think I made a good purchase with these.  
Sorry for taking so long to make this post I have just been really busy.  Anywho, what do you think ? Do you love them as much as I do ?
Until next time ;)

Makeup Collection : Lips

I really wanted to do a makeup collection but I feared that that post would end up being extremely long, so I have decided to do it in parts after type. So as you can see, I am kicking it off with Lips. Today I am going to show you all of my lip products.  Now that is from lip balms to glosses to stains and what not. So lets get started :)

Lip Glosses

Cupcake, Melonrageous
I have two Beauty Rush lip glosses from Victorias Secret,  the shimmery pink one is called Cupcake and it is my go to everyday lip gloss.  The other one is a lot brighter and is called Melonrageous, the name does not lie.  It tastes exactly like melon.  I really like the color but the taste is a little to overpowering for my liking.  The Beauty Rush lip glosses are sticky which I don't mind.

mini of Naked
This lip gloss came with my Naked 2 palette and it is a Lip Junkie in the color Naked.  I love this lip gloss.  When you put it on it cools your lips and plumps them.  The color is also very universal and would look good with a lot of different skin tones.

Lip Smacker, Soap Opera Queen
My next two and final lip glosses are my favorite, I think.  The lip smacker one is pretty worn out so I don't know the name of it but it is a very pretty peachy pink that I wear all the time.  My next and only NYX lip gloss is a extremely sparkly bright pink called Soap Opera Queen.  This lip gloss is so pigmented so what it looks like is how it applies.

Lip Balm

Strawberry, Pink Punch
I only have two Lip balms.  The first one is a Born Lippy from the Body Shop in the color Strawberry and I have to say even though it look really beat up, I don't use it that much anymore.  But it is a great product none the less.  Now for my other lip balm is my Maybelline Baby Lips and I can't tell you how much I love this thing.  It smells so good, the color is Pink Punch and ahh I just love it to death.  This thing lives in my purse I always have it with me.

Lip Stick and Liners

Swatches : Hot Shot, Berry and Clueless
The next thing I am going to show you are my Topshop lip Products.  I absolutely love Topshop makeup, the quality is great and the Packaging is so pretty.  I have two lip markers in the colors Hot shot and Berry.  They are the best thing ever, they are super pigmented and they stay on your lips for such a long time.   I also have one lip stick, which isn't even a lip stick more like a chubby lip pencil but whatever.  The color is called Clueless and it is a bright hot pink.  The color is actually inspired by the movie Clueless (best movie ever) and I love it, it looks so good on.

The nude lip pencil
I have one lip liner and it is from smashbox.  It is just your basic nude lip pencil and I use it almost everyday to fill and define my lips.

Pink Punch.
I really only have one lip stick and it is from Maybelline.  It is a color sensational lipstick in the color nr. 175 Pink Punch.  I never really wear lipstick but when I do, I like to do a bold lip and this deep fucsia color is perfect for that.  I love the consistency of this lip stick it isn't to wet but it isn't drying.

Strawberry Shortcake, Berry Smoothie

I actually just got these today, and I new I had to include them here.  I have only tried them once but they are Great.  The colors look so good on your lips and they are so smooth.  One thing that surprised me was that they have no taste or smell.  But over all they are so great and I am so happy that I finally got my hands on them.

the end

So that concludes my lip product collection.  If you liked something you saw or if you are just curious about something please let me know, so I can do a review of any of these products.
So what part of my  collection do you want to see next ?

Fun with Friends and an Update

Last weekend I went out with my friends.We went to this little festival in a near by town and I was going to do and OOTD but I totally forgot once I was there but we took a couple pictures so I decided to just post one of them.  The festival was really fun and we had a great time.
Now for the Update.
You may know that a couple posts back I asked for your guys' opinion on which bikini I should get.  Well I was going to get number four but when I went back on the website to order it it was Sold out!  I was so sad and when I look closer I saw that all the tops that I had considered weren't available in my size anymore :( So I had to pick something totally different but I am very happy with my purchase and picture of that will be here in a couple a days.
I am still gonna thank you for helping me decide even though I totally failed at not ordering it right away  and missing my chance at getting the bikini I originally wanted:)
But I have a couple posts planned for next week to make up for my lack of posting recently :)

Just spotted the Lizard

A couple a days ago I painted my nails with OPI's Just spotted the Lizard which is from the Spiderman Collection. Click here to see my OPI haul which features this polish. 
I absolutely love this color and it is so fun because it is a douchrome so the color changes from the angle you look at it and the light that hits it when you do.  This color is also almost an exact dupe for Chanel's nail polish in Peridot which is one of it's most popular nail polishes.
I love OPI nail polishes, the quality is great and you can see how well it last on these pictures because I have already worn it for three almost four days now and I didn't use a top coat!

Thats all for Now :)

Lace and Loafers

Trends For Summer

Recently I have been noticing that a lot of brands have started carrying lace shorts.  Now I think they are super cute and fun for summer. You can get them from Fx. Zara, Topshop and Forever21.  In my opinion if I were to get lace shorts I would have them high waisted because when you have layers and lace on your shorts they grab peoples attention, and when you wear this type of eye grabbing shorts they should be the center piece not the rest of your shirt or jacket.  When you have so much going on it is nice to be able to tuck in your shirt to define the waist and pull the look together.
I'd style lace shorts with a simple white or denim shirt, you can also just go casual and wear a white loose fittet tank top and tuck it in.  White is very in this summer so wearing different white tones can make your outfit look more in and put together.

Another trend that I am obsessed with are Loafers.  Loafers are just the cutest type of shoes ever and I am so glad that they are back in style this summer.  Now loafers have always been around, they are nothing new, but the type of loafers that are inn this season are actually ones with studs all over or on them.  Now you all know that studs are nothing new either , that trend is well known but the Loafers are a brand new type of shoes to be studded.  (you've all seen studded JC and Converse, am I right ?)
I just think this trend goes so well with the other one because if you are wearing a white feminine outfit wearing a edgy pair of loafers will give you that final touch you were looking for.
I am dying to get a pair of studded loafers and I have already spotted a pair I want from Zara.

So what do you think ?  Will you be trying one of these trends this summer or are you already rockin them ? Let me know in the comments below :)

Hot & Spicy

Today I repainted my nails with OPI's Hot&Spicy.  I have to say that this color might be my all time favorite nail polishes.  This bright orange just looks so good on my nails.  This surprised me because it doesn't look this bright in the bottle but ones it is on it looks so fun and summery, and I liked the color before I knew it was this bright which is a huge plus for me.
If you can I suggest you to go right now and buy this nail polish because it is the most perfect color for summer.

My new Vanity

I have finally gotten a Vanity.  I have been wanting a vanity for a million years and I finally went with my dad and got this beautiful one from ILVA.  It is everything I have ever wanted, like I can die happy now that I have a vanity.  The two drawers are really big and deep and that is why I liked this vanity so much.  All of the vanities I have seen always tend to have really small drawers that you can't fit anything in them, but this one fits both of my curling irons and a bunch of other stuff that didn't have a home but do now :)
I find myself just sitting in front of it all day not really doing anything.  It also fits my room perfectly.
So I can't say anything but that I love my new vanity.

Watch Out !

This my dear viewers is the lovely watch my parents got me for my birthday :) The watch is from a Swedish company callad Triwa.  I am in love with it.  If I was a watch this would be me, literally.  I have recently been craving to have a oversized watch and when I saw it I just died.  The strap is grey (duhh) but the watch itself is gold and the background inside the watch is pink, which is my favorite color.  And it just gets better and better, Inside there are little diamonds.  I am so grateful for my parents and I haven't been as happy with a birthday gift like ever.

Have a nice day :)

OPI Haul :)

From left to right:  Hot&Spicy,  Nothin' mousie 'bout it,  I'm all ears,  Russian Navy,  Just spotted the Lizard.

Yeah I might have bought just a few... couple.... okay many OPI nail polishes last week and I have just one thing to say about it.  I regret Nothing! I have wanted to own OPI nail polishes for so long but I never had money, but now I do and I am so freaking happy about my choices.

I bought a pastel orange called Hot&Spicy, two pink ones from the Minnie Mouse Collection called Nothin' Mousie 'bout it and I'm all ears.  Click Here to see my post about them.
To break out of my habit of buying only pinks I got a black based shimmery purple color called Russian Navy and a duochrome green called Just spotted the lizard which is from the Spider Man Collection.  Just spotted the Lizard is also an almost exact dupe for Chanel's Peridot which is one of Chanel's most popular nail polishes.

So what do you think, was my impulse OPI craze worth it ?

Birthday Outfit :)

My B-day was yesterday, YAY! I wore my new dress from Miss Selfridge that I just Love, it is a little to short (the underskirt) so I am gonna try to find something to wear under it the next time I wear it.  I paired it with my also new sandals that again are also from Miss Selfridge.  For accessories I kept it simple because the dress has so much detailing.  I wore my New Triwa watch that my parents got me for my birthday and paired that with my pink skull bracelet, for earrings I just wore simple gold ones.

Minnie Mouse Manicure

Just a couple a days ago I got my hands on two of OPI's Minnie Mouse Collection.  In occasion of that, I painted my nails with both of the colors.  I'm not a big fan of all pink polishes and also not of sparkly and shiny ones either but every once in a blue moon I find ones that really like and this is one of those cases.  Now because these polishes are so sparkly it was very hard to photograph it, but I didn't have much time so I just settled for these photos, hope they are okey :)

 And also I wanted something fun and girly since it is my Birthday tomorrow :)

Maybelline Illegal Lengths Mascara Review

So just the other day my mom got me the Illegal Length mascara from Maybelline.  Now I had been thinking about getting this mascara for a while now but I hadn't really heard much about it. But when I got it I didn't need to try it out a million times because I knew that I hated this mascara.  Everything it claims is a lie for me.

This mascara claims to add 4mm to your lashes with their "Fiber Extensions".  That was my first problem.  It doesn't lengthen my lashes any more than any other mascara would and it most certainly does not add 4mm to my lashes.  Another problem I had with it is that again they claim that it has Fiber Extensions that are up to 4mm in length.  That is the problem the fibers are not 4mm, some of them could be but I really doubt that.  I have tried my best but I can't see any fibers in this mascara.  The next problem is that the brush is really sparse and it can't comb each lash individually, so your eyelashes end up sticking together giving the spidery lash effect that doesn't ever look good

So you see I have a lot of problems with the mascara.  Just to add, I accidentally got the waterproof version.  So in the evening when I want to take this horrible mascara off, I can't.  It is impossible to remove.  If it is one thing they got right is that this mascara sure is Waterproof, hell this mascara is liquid proof.
I hate this mascara with all my heart, the formulation is bad, the brush is horrible plus the packaging is incredibly tacky.

Do I recommend you to get this mascara ? Hell NO.

Wish List

Recently I have been wanting to spend my Hard earned money and have been surfing the web for pretty and sparkly things that I don't really need.  So I thought I'd share them here because where else could I?
Anywho these things are among the millions of other things I will most likely never get, but a girl can dream right ?

Review on Urban Decay's Naked 2

During my Easter Vacation I went to London and I got my hands on the Naked 2 palette.  I was so happy when I got it because I had been raving about it for months so finally getting it made my life.
When I got this palette I had very high expectations for this palette.  I wanted the eyeshadows to be really pigmented and it turns out they SO ARE.
This palette is amazing, all the colors are Beautiful and the pigmentation is out of this world.  My favorite eyeshadows in this palette are half baked, bootycall, tease and suspect.
Whenever I were eyeshadow I always use tease in my crease (that totally rhymed).  It is the most perfect crease color and it goes with every color in the palette.  Bootycall is a very good all over lid color and highlighter and I use  it most of the times I wear eyeshadow.  Half Baked and Suspect are another ones of my favorites and I love to use them both together.
The Pigmentation of the matte colors are not as great as with the shimmery ones, but they still are very pigmented.  On the picture below foxy doesn't really show because I am very pale, but it does work great as a highlight color.
    Foxy-Half Baked-Bootycall             Chopper-Tease-Snakebite             Suspect-Pistol-Verve                  YDK-Busted-Blackout

I really love this palette and I would recommend anyone to go right now to wherever they sell them where you live and GO GET YOU SOME.

Cajun Shrimp

Today I painted my nails in OPI's Cajun Shrimp.  I got it yesterday and I am just in Love with it.  This color is sooo pretty, it is this redish orange color and it is so fun for summer.  I also painted my toes with this color and it is the pretties pedicure color ever.

Miss Selfridge and Topshop

If you read my las post you would know that my mom went to London to meet some family friends and she and my best friend who lives in London went on a little shopping trip for me and got me some amazing pieces.  All of the clothing was purchased from Miss Selfridges, If you don't know what store that is you need to go to their page Right now and you will be amazed.  The Jewelry was all purchased from Topshop. I am really proud of my mom for pulling this one out so good.  I really love everything she and my bestie got me and I can't wait to wear them for summer.  You will also be seeing outfit post very soon where I will be sporting these pieces.
Dress and Shirt from Miss Selfridges

Jewelry from Topshop


I just got some new makeup and a new nail polish so I thought I'd show you guys what I got.  My mom just got home from London so she bought me a couple of things, she got me the NARS Laguna Bronzer and Maybelline's Illegal Length Mascara.  I have been dying to get the Laguna bronzer so when I got it I kinda just died of happiness.  It is even better than I thought it would be and I never thought I could ever love a makeup product the way I love this (except maybe the Naked 2 palette).  As for the mascara I have only tried it once and so far, not so good.  It hasn't given my lashes "illegal" length.  It is really just like any other mascara, but I hope I am wrong and I am gonna keep on trying to see if I will like it.

Then today I did a little shopping my self and I went to MAC and I got a Mineralize Skinfinish in the color Semi Precious Rose Quartz.  It it so pretty and sparkly and it is my first MSF and I can't wait to wear it this summer.  Lastly I got an OPI nail polish in the color Cajun Shrimp, it is this really pretty pink/red/coral color and It is such a great pedicure color.  I will probably wear this color and only this color this summer.

But that is all for now,
XOXO Stefania

Nails of the Day: Floral

Today I wanted to paint something fun on my nails so I did this purple and white floral design.  This took me about an hour, but I always wait a lot between coats so I don't know if it is really that relevant.  But this design was really easy.
All you have to do is start by making the green lines randomly on all of the nails.  Then you go in with a dotting tool and make the dots.  I decided to have some of the dots overlap each other for more dimension.  Then I did a couple more shorter green lines coming from the middle some dots to fill in the more blank areas.  Then lastly I used a top coat to seal in the design and to keep it from chipping in the near future, it also provides a beautiful shine.
The colors I used were : just any white you have, Art deco striper in forest green, depend nail polishes in Nr. 115 and Nr. 202 and lastly OPI in steady as she rose.
