11 Things I Love…

 

#1. Starbucks This is how I like to wake up every morning. I’m a total zombie without my cup of coffee! I’m lucky to live Downtown where there’s a Starbucks on every corner.

 My daughter Naomi loves Starbucks too!

My neighbor Hannah came over and surprised her with a Pink Birthday Cake Pop!

#2 Getting Long Massages Here’s me and Hannah getting our massages at

Healthy Foot Reflexology on 82nd & Harrison

After a long week of work, this was what I needed! Being pampered and being man-handle!

Thanks for being my Decision Making Support Specialist!

#3 MAKE UP FOR EVER I’m now apart of the Make Up For Ever team and I couldn’t be more happier!

This was a great Christmas Present that I earned for myself and another step towards my Career and Dreams. I can’t wait to really go deep with my Artistry and to expand my skills and craft from the Make Up For Ever Professional Team.

#4 Hot Tools Curly-Q Curling Iron

  • Rheostat heat control dial heats up to 450 degrees
  • Powerful spring clamp
  • Heat resistant styling glove included
  • Foldaway safety stand
  • 8 inches long swivel cord

I just received my new curling wand from Amazon.com and I’m in love with it already!

I have really long thick black hair and this curling tool get to the very ends and the curls come out bouncier than any other curling iron I ever used. It get super HOT really fast and my curls last for 2-3 days. I have been curling my hair for years and this is the easiest curling iron I have ever used.

#5 Eyelash Extensions This isn’t only a job, it’s a calling.. I’m extremely passionate about my work and the feeling I get from making girls happy is extraordinary. My clients leave feeling happy and brand new and that’s something money can’t buy.

#6. JEWELRY  Here’s Naomi, Me, & Manila from Kassab Jewelers Downtown 

I’m a type of girl that loves to be ICY & *BLING BLING*

“Shine Bright Like a Diamond”

#7. Music There’s not one single day that I don’t listen to Pandora Radio.

I’m addicted to Slow Jams, R&B, Hip Hop, & Rap
 

 

#8 My Sister Diana.  We had our family Christmas Dinner over at my Grandpa’s house and my mother made all this! YUM! I love traditional Vietnamese food! There’s nothing better than Home-cooked meals from my mama.

#9 Prime Rib I’m a huge FOODIE and I love to eat! I’m blessed to have a man that knows his way around the kitchen. Philly went to Whole Food’s and bought a 7lb Prime Rib for dinner.

Here’s my Christmas Eve Dinner Plate! This is how I get DOWN!

#10 WINE NIGHT My favorite are Mascato & Merlot

How to be a Great Fashionista while still being on a Budget

That feeling you get when you finally finished the book you’ve been reading for, for 2 weeks… #accomplished ^_^ I just read “Kyle Richards Life is not a Reality Show” and I totally recommend it to any DIVA! She’s known for being on the Outspoken, Beautiful Real Housewife of Beverly Hills thats not afraid to express her Strong Opinion (I love her already!) I enjoyed  reading and learning about all her Beauty Secrets she had to share; like how she can’t live without LIP GLOSS and how she always brushes out her hair before taking a shower so her loose hair will be in her hairbrush instead of clogging up the shower. (GENIUS!)

 

My Vacation Month is now officially over and now it’s time to get back to “Work” ^_^ A lot of people has been wondering what’s my blog really about? And my response is, it’s a Lifestyle Blog about Me and the things that brings JOY & Happiness to my LIFE! Like Make-up & Beauty is a HUGE factor to my everyday lifestyle because FASHION is every where!

Being a Fashionista you always gotta up to date with a the New Styles and Trends. The best way to find your personal style is to do some research! Stock up on Magazines (Elle, Vogue, People, Cosmopolitan, Style, Marie Clare, and Glamour and my Top Faves) and now a days you can go to any Barnes & Nobel and get your hands on plenty of DIY Style Guide Books! And of course there’s always the World Wide Web! Use your resources and educate yourself! Fashion is constantly changing and there’s always something new to learn, see or get inspired! Be creative, and show your personality!

Here’s some tips I always go by when I’m shopping… “When in doubt, go without!” don’t just buy something because it’s on sale, try cutting back on impulse buying! Make sure you LOVE it before you purchase it otherwise you’re just going to be adding more clutter to your closet. Trust me, theres nothing I love more than Good Buys, but now a days I rather Save my Big Bucks for the items I truly want! (Like Shoes and a good pair of Jeans!) 

 

Look at this amazing outfit I found on http://www.wanelo.com I love the prints and color! => Plus this dress is only $34!!! What a STEAL for SPRING!

 

Jennifer Hudson & Beyonce Knowles Nails Jewelry and accessories plays a big part when getting dress! I love anything *bling bling*, and colorful! My favorite store for jewelry is Forever 21, H&M, & Target!!! Who said you need to spend a fortune on jewelry! You can layer necklaces together for a more personal touch, or add Pearls & Glitz to really make it polish and shine! You really can’t go wrong with studs earrings, your ears should never be naked! Earrings totally Frames your face and can make you look elegant, flirty, and sophisticated!

Another way to add more Style to your look is with your Nails!!! Chips Nails are a huge No No when you’re going out and about!!!! Keep it simple and chic! You don’t have to splurge on getting your nails done every 2 weeks, try DIY! Clean cut trim nails are always in style and can make any outfit look like a million bucks!  Vibrant Polish are so in this season!

TRY Nail Inc Nail Polish Baker Street, $9.50; available at sephora.com in March.
