red lips

I love winter because for me, I can pull off red lipstick a little better, at least, in my own head I believe so. :3 I love wearing dramatic lip stick with little to no eye-makeup. I get tired of putting on eye makeup, so wearing lipstick is one way of drawing attention away from the eyes, the other way is to wear a banana outfit.

Another pro about wearing red/dark lipstick; it makes your teeth look whiter! yay! :)
Here is what I used, all MAC products. For lips I tend to go with MAC or YSL. The liner:

1.5 months!

I'm getting very excited to leave in 1.5 months for the Dominican Republic! I'm already planning my get away outfit. Lately, I've been inspired by tights, especially because I'm so short (5'4), some tights (like ones with vertical designs on them) help make my legs look longer.
I have something to confess, I'm a Selena Gomez fan. Eek o.0. Anyway, she recently inspired me to grab some tights. I love her look, and for the most part, it is pretty affordable.

Sadly, these Holland tights weren't available on Polyvore, so I opted for another cute version with hearts instead of Gold stripes as seen on So here is the getaway outfit I have planned!
Leaving the country

I wanted to add the shorts + suspenders look because I absolutely adore that look. I know it isn't very popular in the U.S., but I can only wear these for another year or two before it ends up in the "too young" pile, so I'm going to soak it up. Instead of the knee-high-boots like Selena is wearing, I think booties would look better with the tights, to have less of a distraction from the hint of Gold.

What is your getaway outfit?

Sponge Bob

Today the ladies and I decided to get our nails done. I've done shellac before, on one hand -.-. The ladies all did French Manicures but I've been wanting some cranberry red nails for the holiday season.

What color/colors do you think match the holiday season?

I also made Alex some rice for Alex tomorrow.

Shiitake mushrooms, green peppers, purple onion, tumeric, chili pepper, indian eggplant, and some soy sauce. Yummy. My sister in law also gave us our pictures for our very first Christmas card :3

Our first Christmas tree!

When I was growing up we never had a real tree, we always had a fake one, which is fine..until I recently experienced the awesomeness which comes with having a real tree! Alex, Wendy, and I went to some tree farm this weekend and it was an awesome adventure. First, they make you get on this truck and they drive you to a remote location to cut down some trees. You get off the truck, obtain your weapon of choice (a saw) and find the tree. We walked into a sea of trees, which one should we choose? It was like a beauty pageant, for trees! The first tree we found we ended up cutting down, after running around and trying to compare other ones. We brought it to this machine where they shake it and turn it into a cone, then back onto the truck to go home! It was a fun adventure. There were tons of families, and many people brought their dogs, it made me wish we had a puppy.

Christmas countdown!

YAY! Last night was amazing! It was the company Christmas party and it was so fun! I just danced my butt off, because I love dancing. If I ever get a chance to dance on a dance floor, I am on there for at LEAST an hour. I would say I probably danced for an hour last night. It was awesome because it wasn't just a regular DJ, he also had a violin which sounded beautiful. He would coordinate it with "top 40" songs, and make them almost elegant. I was able to wear this dress I've been wanting for FOREVER. It is actually this dress. I was really disappointed because even though I ordered a size 2 petite, it was still sort of big on me, and didn't compliment my body as well as I imagined it would. I still had fun either way, and who knows if we will be here for next years Christmas party, but if we are, we better win the prize package. Mwuahah. This year the prize was a 4 night/day all inclusive cruise! Okay, here are pictures!

sort of full size of the dress.
