Wanted: Burgundy Kitten Loafers from Lebelik

I can't help but do some online window shopping in between tasks at work. One of my favorite sites to browse around when I'm feeling a bit more serious about going through with a purchase is Lebeblik because it's a Lebanese site and delivery is actually possible. I spotted these suede burgundy flats with a Kitty detail on top, and fell in love. I really like the contrast between the serious style of the shoe and the funny cat illustration that's on it; the "tough" burgundy color and the delicate suede material of it. It's definitely going on my wishlist, and I feel like it might become a purchase soon!
Head over to the Lebelik site to check it out, the price has been knocked down from $150 to $75.

What do you think of the shoes?

REVIEW: Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Foundation

Urban Decay is probably my favorite makeup brand of all time, but I usually gravitate towards it when it comes to eye makeup. Their eye shadow palettes and eye liners are beyond amazing. For some reason though, I always went to other brands for actual face makeup. Recently though, they released several face products that tickled my fancy, like the Naked Skin Weightless Foundation. While I was in LA, I went to Sephora and decided to try it out. I sort of regret not getting the complimentary Naked Skin concealer, but that's a story for another day. Since the purchase in July, I've been wearing this foundation almost every day, because it really is a unique foundation that's amazing. Let's jump into the review shall we?

Application and Consistency:
It's a SUPER liquid foundation. You need to shake it well and be very careful when you apply it to the back of your hand because it will slip away. In terms of application, I tried it with a: buffing brush, stippling brush, traditional foundation brush, fingers and a beauty blender. I found out that if you want more coverage, you need to apply it with the traditional foundation brush and blend it our with your fingers or a beauty blender. If you want less coverage, go for a buffing brush. Either way though, you get a very natural finish that actually looks like SKIN and feels weightless. 

Light to medium coverage, you can layer it up and it won't look fake. I've gone up to three thin layers and it looked like perfect skin. The foundation sort of blurs your imperfections so everything is smooth and perfect, without looking like there's product on your face. 

Very natural finish that looks like literal "NAKED SKIN", described at "demi-matte" on the pack. It also doesn't have SPF so it's flash photography friendly. 

Lasting Power:
Pretty decent lasting power, although you do need to touch up "trouble" areas during the day... but that's pretty normal for most foundations. 

Shade range:
According to the Urban Decay website there are 18 shades. I was matched to shade 3 which ended up being a great match for my face. 

To powder or not to powder:
Powder is not necessary, unless you have super oily skin, but even if you apply powder it doesn't look cakey. 

This foundation might just become my holy grail everyday foundation, the only down side is that it's not available in Lebanon. When it runs out I need to run to Dubai or the states to get it :(
If you're someone who doesn't like foundation, you will LOVE the Naked Skin, because it really is a unique product that makes you look flawless with no fake side effects. 

Have you tried the Naked Skin Weightless Foundation by Urban Decay?

Wanted: Feather Detail Messenger Bag from Zara

Ever since I watched FleurDeForce's Get Ready With Me video featuring Alix and Suzy, I haven't managed to get Suzy's bag out of my head.. A simple leather messenger bag with a gorgeous metal feather detail on it, the best part? It's from Zara! I made a mental note that I'd keep my eyes open for it in Zara Lebanon and would get it ASAP. I was browsing through my BlogLovin feed just now  and saw a post on the Olivia Palermo blog about the blog as well, but this time in the tan color instead of the black. I think the world is reminding me that I NEED this handbag in my life! Leather Messenger bag from Zara with the feather detail, you will be mine soon! Promise. Also, most propably in black... But I couldn't find a proper picture so just use your imagination for now ��

Ps. I typed this post on my phone so excuse any typos. I just got a little too excited about the handbag.

What do you think of the handbag?

The White Stripes

Life has been a little crazy, and I haven't made time to just sit down and write things on this thing even though I had been proactive early on in the month and taken some pictures for the blog. For those of you who don't know me personally, or haven't stalked by Twitter feed, I'll give you a quick update on things. I recently resigned from my position at an advertising agency, and by recently I mean that yesterday was my last actual day of work. It was a hard decision because I was comfortable with the flow, but I just knew that I had to move on to better opportunities. I'm still young(ish) and there's a lot that still needs to be accomplished. As for the next step, it's a very different step for me in terms of a career, but I'm very excited. This whole month has been a little hectic in preparation for my departure from work, the last thing I wanted to do when I got home was turn on my laptop and stare at a screen for a couple of more hours. But work's over now, and I'm free to do as I please. Now that we're done with the life update, shall we move on to the outfit?

Remember how in my last couple of posts I mentioned that I've been trying to get out of my comfort zone in terms of fashion? This is sort of a continuation of that. Meet the black romper from H&M. Before you go on and point out that I've posted a romper on my blog before, let me clarify the situation. I have worn a romper before, but NEVER without tights, because I just don't do shorts and bare legs in public. Something happened though when I tried on this piece from H&M. It became my literal summer uniform. Anytime I didn't feel like thinking about what to wear, I'd reach for this. I'd dress it up with heels and a blazer, as I've done in these pictures, or I'd dress it down with sandals and a vest, as I posted on Instagram a while back. Either way, I was in love. I was so in love actually, that I tried to find a back up for next summer in case something horrible happens to the one I own. I searched for over a month with no luck, but I'm happy to share that on a random trip to City Centre I did manage to find one...and it was on sale.You may conclude that I was really happy :)

It really feels awesome though to get out of your comfort zone and expand the zone to include wearing awesome things you never thought you'd wear. I can't wait to take more and more steps this year until hopefully I can become comfortable enough with myself to just not care anymore about insecurities and all that jazz.

Romper: H&M | Blazer: Target Style | Shoes: Forever 21 | Necklace: Aldo | Sunglasses: Miu Miu | Handbag: Vintage | Nails: Essie Licorice + Essie Pret a Surfer | Lips: Sephora "Simply Red" liquid lipstick

What was your summer uniform?
