Wanted: Essie Spring 2015 Mini Nail Polishes


[ image source: Nordstrom ]

Everything in miniature form is just cuter isn't it? Especially if it's a mini nail polish bottle by Essie! I already own two mini shades (Ballet Slippers and Wicked), and I find them very convenient because you get to use the color before it gets icky. Another bonus is that they're very travel friendly for touch ups. Essie decided to tease me by released a pack of four mini colors for Spring, which includes the shades: Perennial Chic, Blossom Dandy, Petal Pushers, Flowerista. The pack is filled with a gorgeous selection of wearable bright colors that are perfect for spring and summer. I'm totally in love! 

Are you also obsessed with minis?

Daisy Me Rollin...



Rompers became a thing a while back, at first I didn't know how to feel about the "top attached to a bottom, looks like a dress but is in fact shorts" hybrid. My best friend became obsessed with them and kept wearing them over the summer, so the idea of the romper grew on me. With that said, I was nowhere near thinking about getting one for myself. It seemed like all the other articles of clothing that pop up, they look good on other people, but not me. While in London last April, I tried on one for the first time at Forever 21 and didn't hate the look, but I was too chicken to make the purchase. It became my "why didn't I get it" regret of that trip, every trip has one doesn't it? I kept thinking about it a few months later, how it would be fun to pair it with tights for autumn or just throw it on on a lazy summer day. I looked for one in a bunch of stores in Lebanon, but obviously nothing ever fit right or looked good. I had almost given up on my romper search when I finally found one I loved while shopping in New Look on my trip to Dubai. The first thing that I loved was the fact that it wasn't all the same print from top to bottom, there was a break down to make things a bit more flatter. The second thing that I loved was the flowiness and how easy it was to move around in it. The only down side is that it's a bit too short for my taste, so until I'm more comfortable with bare legs, I'm going to stick to wearing it with tights.



On this particular day I was feeling the 90's vibe so I decided to put on a brownish lipstick and the traditional 90's choker to complete the flashback. I don't know about you, but I've suddenly fallen in love with the 90's trend. My shoe choice also was inspired by the past, sort of. Vans have been an important part of my shoe closet since I was a punk loving wanna be skater teen in 2005, odd that I haven't really mentioned them before on the blog. This particular pair was purchased around two years ago, and have been my go to slip-ons ever since

How do you feel about the romper? Love it or hate it?

Book of the Month: Unlucky 13



It took me a smidge over a month to finish Catch 22, for some reason I didn't enjoy as much as I thought I would. Maybe it's the fact that I took long breaks between every time I read a section and kept forgetting what had happened before. This month, I decided to go for a more "light" book. I hadn't read a crime/mystery novel in a while so I picked up this book by James Patterson called Unlucky 13, and I honestly haven't put it down since! The writing style isn't my favorite, but the story is flowing smoothly. It's a very easy read, but also not too easy. If that makes sense. I think I'll be done with this book in a day or two, so I just might start another book this month to make up for the fact that I didn't read one in January... possibly one by Ken Folett, I haven't read a book by him in a while.

What are you reading this month? I need suggestions!

March 2014 Favorites: Beauty & Stuff! [VIDEO]



My first monthly favorites of the year is finally here. I planned on making a video for January but I got too busy and then February rolled by as well without anyone noticing, so here we are:
Welcome to my March Favorites! Watch the video here.

Bobbi Brown Pacific Eyeliner:
I've been obsessed with having a neutral eye with a pop of color, usually consisting of this gorgeous teal shade from Bobbi Brown. If you're looking for a fun eyeliner for spring/summer, you should definitely check this one out.

Sephora Eyeshadow Brush "13":
This brush blends out eye shadow beautifully... I even like it better than the MAC 217. I usually apply a color in the crease with a more dense brush, but then use this fluffy one to blend everything out.

Sephora Formula X Nail Set:
I never knew that a top coat could replace Seche Vite in my life, but I've found the perfect nail set which includes a cleanser, base coat and top coat that makes my nail polish last a minimum of a week. 

Essie's Take It Outside:
Ever since I got my hands on this bottle after a trip to ABC Ashrafieh in February I have not stopped wearing this nail polish! It's a gorgeous taupe shade that's a great nude for me without it being too nude. The formula is decent, nothing that special, but the color is just too pretty!

I know that everyone went crazy over Hozier after listening to Take Me To Church a while back (I was one of those people), but this month I actually listened to his whole album and I'm in love. It's been a long time since I've loved a whole album and sat down listened to all the songs. My two favorite tracks are probably: Work Song, and Angel of Small Death and Codeine Scene.

The IT Crowd
I used to watch this show a while back on and off and I absolutely loved the British humor. Moss is my favorite character, his hair is my hair's soul mate. 

Veronica Mars
It's odd that I never watched this show when it actually aired on TV, the whole teenage private investigator detective crime solving thing is right up my alley. My approach to VM was a bit backwards, I watched the movie first and then decided to watch the series. I binge watched the three season in about a week, it was awesome.





What were your favorites of the month?
