Hello Dolls,

When it’s cold outside and you can’t seem to stay inside on a Friday night, what do you do? You pull out your favorite over the knee boots, pair them with a vegan leather skirt, and top it all off with a faux fur coat to keep you warm and fabulous! At least that is what I did this past weekend. We went out for a friends birthday in 10 degree weather, and guess what, I was nice and toasty! I actually started out the night wearing tights under the skirt and then had to take them off because I was getting a little too warm.

Because I am so obsessed with over the knee boots, and because I love all of my readers so much, in my next post, I’ll be listing a range of the latest over the knee boots with links to purchase online!  I personally think I’m in need of another pair, so I may join in on the spree 😉

Thank you for reading!

Hello Dolls,

As the days get shorter and the sunshine limited,  I decided to throwback to my favorite weekend this summer. I love to travel and experience new things, but somehow every year my husband and I end up in LA, Miami, Las Vegas, or all of the above. We recently discovered south of France, but given the distance, a weekend trip to Monaco wouldn’t suffice. When we got the idea to surprise our cousin, Ninelia, for her birthday in Las Vegas, there really wasn’t much thought. I don’t think I can ever describe the craziness that happens when Nini and I get together, our times together are always unforgettable. Put us together, and no matter where we are there is sure to be some crazyness. So me + Nini + Vegas seemed like perfection. We stayed at the Aria, which is one of my favorites. It was my second time there, and I love the location, its in the middle of everything and its connected to the Shops at Crystals and the Cosmopolitan,

We got there on Friday morning so we could be there before Nini and Vic got in from LA. I was so excited for them to get there, I couldn’t sit still because Nin really had no idea we were coming. When they finally checked in and got to their room, Areen and I, with our bouquet of pink balloons, knocked on their door and the crazies began when Nin opened the door with a reaction I will never forget.

We spent our first night having dinner at Nobu and resting up for the next day. I’ve been to the one at the Atlantis in the Bahamas and the one in Miami, but this was my first time at the one in Vegas, and as always, I was not disappointed.

Saturday was when it all really began. We want to Drai’s Beach Club and pretty much turned the place upside down. I don’t think there was any other table there that was having nearly as much fun as we were. When I said we turned the place upside down, I meant we literally turned everything upside down, everything at our table. The ice, the soda water, the lemons, the limes, the orange juice….all got dumped on someones head. Everyone around us was just staring at us wishing they were having that much fun. Unfortunately, Drai’s did not feel the same way so they asked us to leave because we were making a “mess”. We decided to continue our party in the limo on the way back to the hotel.

Areen and I decided to stay in Vegas for one more night because that weekend was also our 4th wedding anniversary. We celebrated by going to the High Roller Ferris Wheel and then having dinner at the Eifel Tower restaurant at Paris. I was surprised at how beautiful the view was, it overlooked the fountains at the Bellagio, so it was a perfect romantic dinner to celebrate our anniversary and a perfect end to a perfect weekend.

Hello Dolls,

I can never pass up a chance to get my makeup done. If I was a morning person, I would probably go to work looking like this on the regular, so obvi this weekend was the perfect excuse to pamper my face given it was hubby’s birthday. Every time I get my makeup done, I feel like a kid at Toys R Us, and I want to go home with all the flashy dolls and toys. I am absolutely obsessed with my makeup artist, Jane So. I have gone to a lot of different artists in the area, and she is the only one I can’t get enough of. I think when looking for a makeup artist, you have to find someone who’s personality matches your own. This way you don’t have to go into great detail to describe the look you are going for. And Jane just gets me…….it’s really that simple.

This time we decided on a sexy and sultry look to go with my sexy, yet classy outfit. I am not afraid of makeup, I love it and the more the merrier. My skin is a bit sensitive, so I try to stay lighter on my face. Jane uses skincare products from either Nars or Smashbox. This look she used Nars tinted moisturizer pure radiant and Smashbox photo finish foundation primer because my skin is oily. I absolutely looove, love, LOVE eyeliner, eyeshadow, and lashes. I can’t leave the house without eyeliner, and I cannot go out without my lashes… ever! Smokey eyes is probably my go to look because I like to make my eyes pop. On the eyes we used MAC electric cool shadow in “pure flash” and “love power” and MAC matte shadow in “carbon” with Stila stay all day liquid liner and Lilly lashes “Paris. On the lips we went with a berry shade to compliment my outfit, so we chose Mineralize rich lipstick by MAC in “Good Taste” and lip pencil in “Magenta”. I have to say this is the first MAC lipstick that didn’t dry my lips. I was so in love with this look when I got home I didn’t want to wash my face, but I did.  I thought I would share it with you all especially as we are going into the weekend.
