Clarins is a cosmetics company founded in 1954 by a medical student. Since then, Clarins has held true to the highest standards of production, using raw materials, this company is socially responsible, making product that is incredibly good for your skin. Myself and a few select bloggers were invited to Clarin’s Beauty event last week at Macy’s Hidalgo in the Galleria mall. The speaker, Christopher, was so pleasant and informative. He explained each new product while demonstrating makeup techniques on fellow a blogger, with products from Clarin’s new Spring collection. The Clarin’s team was amazing and treated us to full size samples of all the products in the new line!! It was a truly useful and fun event. I am so excited to have Clarin’s in my corner with Spring right around the corner, the products not only nourish your skin but the benefits after only a week of use are already noticeable. My skin went from dry, acne prone to very supple and luminous. I cant wait for the results after extended use! Thank you, Clarin’s!
The Oscars were so great this year hosted by Ellen Degeneres! She’s one of my favs, so freaking funny! I saw just a few trends this year. Most of the celebrities really held their own this year, not sticking to one thing or another.
The Veterans looking classic and fierce as usual.
These leading ladies have their share of red carpets under their belt and certainly didn’t disappoint this year.
The newbies that have gained a lot of attention this year for movies American Hustle and 12 Years a Slave look stunning and stole the show.
Men of the Oscars
The leading men were dapper as usual. Classic Brad and the new style of Jared Leto’s white suit made no excuses on the red carpet. These guys are so awesome.
Hey friends! My buddies and I were messing around after the Winter Olympics ended on Sunday enjoying the sunny day and celebrating for team USA! Nine gold medals for the games this year, not bad!! I rocked my gold, sparkly loafers in honor of the Winners!! U.S.A. all day!!
My wrist is doing a lot better. No brace but I’m still taking things slow with my activities. I’m a bit out of shape! Thank you all for your kind emails! Hope you have a great week!
Happy Monday guys! My day was filled with meetings and quick lunches so I put this outfit together with comfort in mind considering I was in and out of my car and restaurants all afternoon. Chambray is super light and breathable, perfect for running around. My last winter white purchase was this Michael Kors Hamilton tote. I love this bags size and shape, it fits my files and iPad so easily. Have a great week!
I had a another great opportunity to pick some Valentine’s Day gifts for your guy with M PENNER. This store has it all, its masculine style and dapper charm makes it easy to find the perfect gift for your beau.
Hello friends!! Great to be back in Houston, I had an extended holiday and went snowboarding in Utah! Always a great time with my cousins but I unfortunately broke my wrist! Eeek! The worst! So I was in a cast for 4 weeks and now I’m in a brace for the next 2. I’ll be back to my normal routine soon but for now I’m going to enjoy my break from piano, violin and swim team!! Hope you’re all staying warm!
Golden Globes 2014
Last night’s Golden Globes proved once again showed us so much amazing fashion. No dress was bland or boring. Jewel embellishments, high low, off the shoulder and mermaid styles were in abundance. The ladies came out with color and the pregnant bellies made the red carpet glow. Beards were a hot accessory for the fellas this year and I approve. Some guys went for classic menswear while others opted for bright colors and fancy pants. The red carpet held fast as the leading ladies and gentleman dazzled us. Here are the best trends of the night.

As the years pass my Christmas list seems to get shorter and shorter, and as I get older I start to really get into the sprit of giving. This year, however, I was lucky enough to be invited to create my list for this holiday season for a couple different sites and wanted to share it with all of you!
My Christmas list choices this year are definitely items I have been eyeing for the past several months. Have a happy holiday and enjoy!
First, I chose this Zara checked studio cape because of the current plaid trend. I am a huge fan and love the shape a cape gives over an outfit. Instead of the same coat, cape style outerwear still provides warmth but makes your ensemble so chic.
I am finally spending time in the snow and saw these winter white boots while browsing Polyvore.com and knew they would be perfect. They are a snug, comfortable fit but don’t look like your typical snow boots. The classic black/white color combo looks amazing against the snowy mountain scenery, and they match almost all of my cold weather gear.
These tees are made from local Arizona designer, Greg Kerr. His clothing line, Miles To Go, lends a creative print to clothing t-shirts, bags, and belts. His inspirations are from works like The Great Gatsby, Harry Potter, Moby Dick, the Buddha, and movies. The tees are made from 100% cotton and are ridiculously soft. I asked for these two new styles.
The Urban Decay Naked3 is perfect for a girl like me that doesn’t wear a lot of makeup regularly. The rosy hues in this palette are perfect for shimmering up your eye area but still looking natural. The colors are easily blended and layered for deeper shade. It can be dressed up by adding some eyeliner and a few coats of volumizing mascara! Perfect for New Years!
The final item on my Christmas list is really the most important, because it has to do with keeping my body healthy. Switching to clean eating has truly made a huge difference in the way that I feel. I have more energy, a slimmer waist, and clear skin. All major pluses in my book! I usually shy away from any type of dieting to keep my meal options open. I like to cook, so generally I am able to make pretty healthy meals. After following recipes I found on the internet, this cookbook came highly recommended from people that follow a clean eating lifestyle. You are what you eat so keep it clean!
I love the winter weather but keeping warm is a constant battle. I’m a desert girl and growing up we rarely had any winters that would require more than a light jacket. I’ve become a huge fan of winter white and think it adds such a stark contrast to the darker colors that are associated with the cooler months. Lately the 90′s have brought on so many street style looks and as a huge 90′s fan, I was in. I dressed up my over sized, grunge inspired plaid shirt with some faux leather pants and Voila! Outfit nirvana. This white trench spoke to me, it is so fresh compared to the black coats I usually wear. The coat brings out the more subtle colors in my shirt and ultimately brightens up the whole outfit. I’ve worn this ensemble on two different occasions; lunch meeting and dinner in the city. Both times I was comfortable, warm but mostly I looked great with very minimal effort. Great day to night outfit.
