D&G never ceases to amaze me

can we please just take a moment and admire these gorgeous floral print playsuits from the d&g spring 2011 ready to wear collection?

i know, i know. the show is long over. and this collection is now what some would consider "old news". but i mean, these are gorgeous and they didn't catch my eye until i saw the far left one in an issue of seventeen magazine. one will run you around 300$ but at this degree of hotness, i think it's worth every single penny. with summer coming to a close, i know i'm so late on this, but i couldn't help myself. plus maybe you can find one out there on sale. *sigh* give me all three and i'll be one happy girl. what are your thoughts? 


feeling the burn

sorry for the lack of posts, i've really been focusing on getting fit! i'm starting to work out 5-6 days a week for 1-2 hours each day. i've really been lacking in the fitness department and decided i needed to kick it into high gear!

what my workout consists of:
  • i usually try to run for around 30-45 minutes. cardio is a huge part of working out and it really gets your blood flowing and your heart racing. plus, it feels great. there is nothing better (in my eyes) than running if you've had a bad day or if you're angry. it's a great way to get all of the frustration out. that and maybe a boxing class haha!
  • after i'm done with my run, i like to target certain parts of my body. this is usually done on some sort of machine or with plain old weights. it's either my upper body or my legs. i like to alternate. you should never do the same workout over and over. your muscles do have a memory and they remember all the working out you do. it also tends to get boring, doing the same old routine. switch it up!
  • next up is my abdominals. i spend a whole lot of time on my abdominals. crunches. planks and various other exercises. 
  • lastly, is some form of a cool down. i'll row. bike. or simply just stretch it out. always stretch when you're done working out. your body will thank you later.  
i'm not trying to lose a crazy amount of weight but i am trying to lose some. i think if i don't get healthier now, my habits will forever be horrible. no more late night chip runs! 

friday: interior inspiration

loving the whole netural apartment look. the white walls with the gray furniture. a pop of colour has been added by using the cushions and paintings. the amount of light that these rooms have to offer is amazing. big windows are a must on my list. another thing i love from this apartment, is the lights. in the top two you see a small hint of the chandelier. in the bottom, it's the orb light. looks like something out of ikea!

unleash your inner foxiness with hard candy

i've been madly in love with hard candy for a while now. ever since i had tried out their matte-ly in love nail polish and noticed the price didn't break the bank. now i think i've almost purchased every single thing in the collection. by far one of my favourite make up brands. plus, it's super easy to come by - wal-mart! fox in a box are blush/bronzer duos that claim to "unleash the foxiness in you". i definitely feel my foxiness is unleashed after using this potent duos!

the packages are around 2 inches by 2 inches and they are packed full of the most amazing blush duo's you will ever try. these actually have surpassed my NARS orgasm blush in my make up bag. and let me tell you, it takes quite the blush to do that!

i picked up one that has a coral blush (skinny dipping) and a more matte, less shimmer-y bronzer and more recently, i picked up truth or dare which is a light pink and a sparkly bronze. if you're going for drama, skinny dipping is your duo. for a more natural, everyday look, you should play with truth or dare.

the packaging is super cute (i've never failed to be disappointed with hard candy and their packaging!). both have magnetic lids that close. they kind of don't work for a little while since the box is cardboard and you do need to almost, work it in so it will shut. rest assured, it does not take long. the boxes are sturdy and are great for travel. they are compact and can fit anywhere. they do come with a small brush, which i do recommend discarding when you purchase. just use a normal brush blush. but if you don't have access to that, feel free to keep the brush that is supplied. 

skinny dipping can be compared to benefit's 10. actually, it is the same but cheaper (and better quality in my eyes). the pink is sheer and natural. you need to apply a fair bit to get a pink colour. but that's how i like my blush. the bronze adds some nice shimmer and when mixed, everything falls into place perfectly. 

skinny dipping is a gorgeous coral colour with a less shimmery bronze. hard candy knocks it out of the water with this one. the coral is stunning and highly pigmented. one sweep of your brush over the product and you have a cheek filled with to die for summer colour. 

overall, i can say that i really do love these products. both are amazing. ahhhh-maaaa-zing. an a +++ in my books. reasonably priced (7$ for one), you can't go wrong. if you have a wal-mart near you (where isn't there a wal-mart now-a-days?), walk run and pick up hard candy's fox in a box. 

cupcake cravings

i had a huge craving attack me today. i needed cupcakes. the thing i love about cupcake bakeries is how they have select flavours on certain days. of course the first thing i did was research my local cupcakery to see what they had baking today. i narrowed it down to four flavours that sounded like they were must haves. going clockwise from the top left: carrot cake, salted caramel, coconut and banana!

how delicious do they look? i just want to shove them all into my mouth at once. i'm really looking forward to chowing down on the salted caramel and coconut cakes, they really catch my eye! cupcakes for the win!

three new polishes + i'm back

so, i've finally caved and moved back onto blogspot (for a little while at least). i really want to further my career as blogger and i don't think that tumblr can do that for me. i'm also not a fan of all of the drama that tumblr can bring. it really is a bit of a pain. but nevertheless, i'm going to be posting here for a little while. see if i can get back into the blogging grove. thank you to my followers who have continued to follow this blog although it hasn't been active. 

i'll be posting my daily musings here along with my makeup and beauty reviews (the platform is so much better for that!). you can also find alot of my photography. which i kindly ask that you do not remove from this site. if you scroll down and read the disclaimer you will see a nice note for all of you to read. if you're coming here from tumblr, don't you dare repost my photos. i will find you :)

but anyways, i picked up this three pack of revlon polishes the other day and i love all three. the green is my favourite. you only need one coat and your whole nail is covered!
