LATIN LEPRECHAUN!!

-Fill with hot coffee
-Top with whipped cream
-Garnish with a cherry & a four leaf clover
ENJOY

How do u style your hair when your going out either for a girls night type of night or dinner? Could you do a video perhaps?

I could TRY to do a video , sure! My favorite "night hair" style is like a messy french roll. Its like a french roll in the back, but I leave the curly ends out. I also leave the "bangs" out as well.

Ask me anything

What leave in are you fond of?

I use conditioner as my styling aid, so all conditioners are leave-ins for me! I really like BC Moisture Kick and Jane Carter spray leave ins......I'm gonna do an updated "Favorite Hair Products" video next week!!

Ask me anything

What foundation do you use?

I use NARS SHEER GLOW for day (if I'm going somewhere) and MakeUp Forever HD (mixed with NARS) for nights and night time events. (See my "Foundation" video!)

My Christmas (Pictures and Video) 2010

Where else would I be, but in San Diego for Christmas 2010! Hung out with friends and family. This year, it was decided to go out to eat, and we chose Buca Di Beppo, which is an Italian restaurant located in the Gas Lamp District in San Diego. Enjoy!!



Round table-o-food!

Happy Holidays!!

Offensive/ Racist Advertisements

Random Post:
I was reading a blog yesterday about "racist" and offensive" past and present advertisements in the media. The question remains: have things at all changed? Have marketing companies become more "clever"? Are we overreacting? Is this a marketing strategy to attract more attention? Makes you wonder........

Laser Hair Removal coupon: 3 treatments (of your choice) for $150!!

Hey..this is a kick-ass deal so I thought I'd share! I'm either gonna get the "armpits" or the "playboy"!
What?!?!
I have no shame!!! :)

$150 for Three Laser Hair-Removal Treatments of Your Choice at LaserAway (Up to $900 Value) http://www.groupon.com/los-angeles/deals/laser-away-los-angeles?utm_campaign=VisitorReferral&utm_medium=email&utm_source=anonymous
It may be a few more millennia before human evolution finally gets around to erasing unwanted hair along your lip, chin, and bikini line. Today's deal will cover you until then with a package of three hair removal treatments of your choice at LaserAway for $150 (up to a $900 value). You can use your Groupon at any of seven locations: Marina Del Rey, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, Woodland Hills, Costa Mesa, Carlsbad, and San Diego.
Unlike the candle-cruelty of waxing and the barbaric ripping away of hair, laserful light is a quick, safe, and effective method for removing unwanted follicles. A state-of-the-art laser directly targets individual follicles, effectively treating unwanted hair with maximum comfort. LaserAwayĆ¢€™s medical professionals are all experienced (40,000 treatments and counting) and fully qualified to administer a variety of services that fit your individual needs. Pick your three treatments from the choices of standard bikini treatment (normally $450 for women, $600 for playboy-style, $900 for men for all three treatments), brow line ($297), center brow ($297), chin ($297), ears ($297), feet and toes ($297), neck (front/back; $450), sideburns ($297), hands and fingers ($297), lip ($297), and underarms ($450).
If everything in our lives could be safely and professionally lasered away by state-of-the-art, politely mannered lasers, our embarrassing moments, soup stains, parking violations, and ugly family-obligated sweaters would all vanish in a flash. As it stands, lasers can at least get you streamlined and smooth for Slip n' Slide season.

*MY* Rocker Chic "Steal vs Splurge"

ROCKER CHIC heels!!!


Remember these heels?? I fell in LOVE with these when they first came out almost about a year ago, and was on a mad hunt to get them (in GRAY) ever since. Until I saw the price tag........


(Middle shoe - Rock and Republic "Nika")
 .........there was NO WAY I was gonna shell out $295 for these, so today I was SO ready to BRAG and give MYSELF a pat on the back on my recent shoe purchase when I realized this topic has been said and done before :(
SOOOO, This is just gonna be an update on prices for all who are interested!!!

Rock Republic NIKA in Gray

$295
http://shop.rockandrepublic.com/Nika_in_Grey/pd/c/402/np/402/p/2413.html

Luichiny FANTA SEE

$55.99


 http://www.shoemall.com/product/Luichiny-Womens-Fanta-See-Pump-Grey-166630/

Anne Michelle VIRUS

$32.97
http://www.shiekhshoes.com/store/p-34633-shiekh-virus-01.aspx

I opted for the Luichiny "FANTA SEE" (I like the "charcoal" gray color and the metal-like heel) via ShoeMall, it was free shipping and I found a coupon code (SANTA25) so I ended up paying $41.99!! Merry Christmas to me!!
(However I DO NOT recommend SHOEMALL, they have terrible customer service and I will not be purchasing from them again!)
