I love keeping busy! No really, for me, busy is exciting! A truly packed schedule is what I crave and how I function best! Don't really know what it is, but I've always been this way. Unless I have a million things to do, I feel like I'm slacking:) And yet, every once in a while, especially after a particularly crazy week, there is nothing I enjoy more than a quiet Sunday at home! 

I guess you could call it a ritual, but I love getting up really early Sunday morning and spending the day doing all my favorite girly things! I light some candles, put on my coziest sweater and lounge around indulging in some personal pampering like trying out new skin care, experimenting with my eye make up,  painting my nails or catching up on some reading as I savor my morning coffee.

I big fan of soft pink nail polish in general, I just can't get over this pretty Holiday 'Roses in Snow" duo from Deborah Lippmann! Today, I opted to layer the glitter coat over the soft pink nail polish, but next time, I might just opt for glittery french tips or make a statement by adding the glitter coat to just my ring fingers:)

Can't really decide what I love more, the packaging or the scent!:) Love, love, love how fun and sexy Viva La Juicy fragrance is! Usually, I like to apply perfume on the inside of my wrists and not just my neck to really amplify the fragrance and make it last all day!

Candy-inspired eye-shadow colors? Yes, please! Love how blendable these shimmery and glittery shades are and rich and intense the colors are. Personal favorite color combo of the moment is "Strawberry Ice" paired with 'Sugared Violet"!

You know me, skincare is my thing and face masks are my obsession! Seriously, I can't image a personal pampering day without trying out a new mask:) This mask/scrub combo from One Love Organics is my latest discovery. For a good exfoliating effect, I mix this powder mask with warm water in equal parts, but you can also mix it with greek yogurt for a more clarifying effect or with raw honey to hydrate the skin.

Reading in bed is my guilty pleasure! Really, all I truly need to make my day is a good cup of coffee, some cozy blankets and a really good book to read! Currently, I'm reading Living In Style: Inspiration and Advice for Everyday Glamour and indulging in some style insights from the effortlessly glamorous Rachel Zoe, who is also one of my personal fashion icons.

I can't get enough of this pretty Essence of Florets candle from DL & C! Pretty scent and beautiful packaging, I just love the way it fills the room with a delicate floral fragrance!

Good morning, Everyone! Hope your week is going great so far! If you read my blog on regular basis, you probably know that usually I opt for a very simple make-up. Powder, bronzer, liner and a bit of lip gloss, that's pretty much what I use on daily basis. Yet, when it comes to evening make up, my philosophy is quite the opposite! As much as I like a fresh, dewy face for day, I feel that a great evening look starts with a perfect canvas, or the right foundation, if you will.

It took me a really long time to find the right foundation for me. On one hand, I was definitely looking for something to mattify and even out my skin,  on the other, I didn't want to wear foundation which was very heavy or obvious. So, after trying a few different products, I finally came across Clé de Peau Beaué radiant fluid foundation spf 24. What I like about this particular one is the fact that it creates a very fine texture, feels very light on my skin and though it provides great coverage, does not look like I have a mask on! Currently, I'm using B30, a Medium Beige, but if you're not sure about your shade, answer a few question to find out your perfect complexion regiment at Complexion Concierge.

In addition to the radiant fluid foundation, I also use Clé de Peau Beaué concealer to cover up a few of those places that need a bit more coverage like under eye area or the few freckles around my nose for example.

I always start with concealer first, applying it directly to the problem area or areas depending on how my skin is behaving that day, then patting lightly around the area of application with a concealer brush to blend it out perfectly. Step two is the foundation. I start by dispensing a dime-sized amount of foundation onto my hand. This is definitely the perfect amount of product to use because you really need a small amount to work with. Next, using a foundation brush, I dot 5 parts of my face ( cheeks, nose, chin and forehead ). I always start by applying foundation to my cheeks for a bit more coverage and use less on the rest. Finally, holding a foundation brush perpendicular to my face I glide it back and forward to blend out the product perfectly and create a very natural look.

As always, if you have any questions about products or application, please feel free to email me anytime! I'll be happy to answer!

I've been working hard on expending my collection of cozy knits this season, and this gorgeous Anine Bing chunky cardigan is my latest score! :) Perfect in every way, from color to understated pattern, I just love the way it fits! When it comes to knits, it's hard sometimes to find that balance between way too fitted and clearly too slouchy, but this one definitive nails that perfectly oversized look! So good with skinny jeans or leather pants, I also love pairing it with dresses and ankle boots for that cute, nonchalant day time look. Basically, the possibilities of wearing it are endless and of course you know how much I love that!:)

Good morning and happy almost weekend, everyone! Well..., it's almost here! The Holiday season is almost upon us! Kinda sneaks up on you, doesn't it? :) 

Personally, I love this time of the year! There is something so magical about the Holiday season, and everything seems a little bigger and brighter and happier! I guess I'm a big kid at heart, but I love it all! Christmas trees and music, jingle bells, coffee with eggnog, presents, parties and dressing up! 

Speaking about dressing up... The a-line, crystal-embellished number from Via Delle Perle I'm wearing in today's post is my first find of the season find and latest obsession! I fell in love with this dreamy dress the moment I saw it! I think what makes it so special for me is the beautiful combination of mixed metallic, crystal embellishments and a classically elegant shape! Feminine and fun yet so very polished and sophisticated! Basically, everything I could hope for in a dress and more!:)
