happy new year :)

 (dress: betsey johnson, floral crown: rouge pony, tiara: claire's)

"there are places I'll remember

all my life though some have changed

some forever not for better

some have gone and some remain

all these places have their moments

with lovers and friends

  i still can recall

some are dead and some are living

in my life i've loved them all"

 ~In My Life, The Beatles

hope everyone has an amazing and blessed new year's eve filled with lots of love, laughter, and smiles :)

i've been so blessed in 2011 and can't wait for what God has in store for me in 2012!!!

lots of love to you! XO

ps. i love impromptu photo shoots in my bedroom ;)

it's a wonderful life rose colored lenses...or in my case a pair of chanel sunglasses :)

these sunglasses were a bday gift to myself :) purchased at the chanel boutique in boston! i wanted the prada baroque sunglasses, but ended up purchasing the chanel.

and everytime i apply revlon's softsilver rose, i'm reminded of holly golightly from breakfast at tiffany's! the particular scene where she's applying her lipstick and saying "a girl can't read that sort of thing without her lipstick"...this is a color you can apply without a mirror and while on the go!

blush: stila convertible cheek color in fuchsia and nyx desert rose
eyeliner: milani liquif'eye in blue
mascara: nyx 
lips: revlon softsilver rose 

hope you're having a lovely and blessed day!

flower crowns, lace, and brighton...

with a few days off from work, i've had a chance to relax and do some of the things that i love...spend time with family, watch movies, read a good book, and finally make my flower crown :)

 it took me a little while to do (approximately 1 hour) since i'm a bit inexperienced and not very talented in the craft department but it was worth it! i love how it turned out :) can't wait to make another!

and this is what i wore today to watch the movie, sherlock holmes! i highly recommend the movie...if you loved the first one, you'll love the second. also, robert downey jr. is such a great actor...loved him in iron man too. i was also pleasantly surprised that the movie repeatedly referenced brighton, england :) i love that little has a special place in my heart as i spent a summer studying abroad in that city by the sea :)

sweater: anne taylor loft
thermal: urban outfitters
dress & mesh slip: free people
bag: ebay
ring: mint julep 
tights: francesca's collection
socks: snow socks from my sis :)
boots: steve madden

blush: bare escentuals fruit cocktail

merry christmas...and red lipstick!

merry christmas eve :) i'm so happy to have a few days off from work and spend time with my family! my little brother is visiting from kentucky and surprised my family!! despite the excitement of the holidays, i have this cold/ cough...aka bronchitis that i can't shake off. praying i have a little christmas miracle tomorrow and my cough is gone! wouldn't that be nice ;)

today i'm spending the day with my brother :) going to watch some funny movies and drink lots of hot cocoa and eat lots and lots of christmas cookies! since i'm sick, i decided to don on some red lipstick. red lipstick instantly makes me feel glam. so when i'm especially feeling not-so-glam, i slap on some red lipstick! i'm seriously contemplating buying another red. i currently have 3 in my collection (mac russian red, chanel rouge coco gabrielle, chanel rouge allure lover) and looking at adding nars shanghai doesn't that sound exotic :)

 one of my favorite things to do at christmas - drive around and look at christmas lights :)

christmas 2007 in orange county (newport beach, ca)...such beautiful sunsets :)

mac russian red :)

i hope you have a very merry christmas!!! 

hugs and kisses to you and your family :) XO
