Private COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss Revealing

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I hope you enjoyed the weekend.  FUNKSHION Fashion Week has ended so I thought I'd share one of my recent events that I had the pleasure of attending.  I was invited to a private event for the new COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss which was held at The W Hotel South Beach.  Myself along with other selected Miami fashion bloggers had the chance to get our nails done with custom designs by celebrity manicurist, Mar y Soul Inzerillo, that were inspired by the 2013 Custo Barcelona’s Spring-Summer collection showcased on the runway by Custo Barcelona for Vanidades Magia de la Moda 2012.

What would a manicure be without cocktails and delicious treats as well?  The W Hotel catered a lavish spread for us to nibble on while we compared nail designs.  I chose the nail design featuring Mint Mojito (#285), Go-Go Mango (#245) and Peaches and Cream (#125).  They even created custom cocktails based on each nail gloss shade!  How fab is that?  To complement our manicures, we could choose an accessory courtesy of Nordstrom's as well.  I selected some arm candy with gold detailing by Kate Spade.

The new collection will be released November 1st, 2012 so I'll be picking up a few of my favorite shades of course.

Mani Monday

Happy Monday everyone!  I decided to try something a little different for today's blog post by incorporating my latest manicure routine.  My nail polish collection is endless, as I have been collecting for years now.  However, I recently picked up some spring and summer colors to add to it.  As I blogged about previously, one of my favorite nail polish collections for the season is the Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolors polishes.  For more of an everyday shade, I use the Kim-pletely in Love pink polish.  It's the perfect sheer, pale pink color.

Here's my nail routine:

1) Thoroughly cleanse my hands with soap and water (sometimes I use a scrub).
2) Apply a thick layer of lotion to my hands.
3) Place some aloe vera gloves on my hands and let sit for 10 minutes.
4) File and clean my nails.
5) Remove cuticles.
6) Apply a clear base/top coat.
7) Layer on nail polish (I used 3 coats this time).
8) Apply a clear base/top coat again.
9) Let them dry and voila!

Friday Favorites: My Top 5 Spring Trends

Happy Friday everyone!  For today's Friday Favorites, I've compiled together some of my top 5 trends for the upcoming season.  Spring is such a beautiful season because the weather is amazing and it allows you to bring out some of your lighter and brighter pieces.  What are some of your favorite trends for the season?

Here are some of my favorite trends:

LEATHER - Adding a leather piece to any outfit can give your look a bit of an edge. 

NEON - Bright and vibrant neon tones can really make any look pop.

MINT - Mint green is a beautiful pastel color that's very trendy this season and it can be as simple as adding minty nail polish to your nails to bring your look together.

DAYTIME CLUTCH - A large or oversized daytime clutch is simple and convenient for this upcoming season. 

COLOR BLOCKING - Combing bold colors together add a bit of brightness to your look, so my spring wardrobe is filled with bright pieces.  I can't wait to pair them together.

The Short Suit

I've been looking for a suit with shorts for some time now, and I managed to snag this baby at H&M.  What makes it great is its lightweight feel along with the textured shine that coats it.  It's perfect for a daytime outfit!

What I'm wearing:
H&M short suit
ZARA top
Forever 21 over-the-shoulder clutch
ALDO heels
Sally Hansen nail strips
Rich Girl by Richie Rich lipstick

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, lovers!  For today's post I decided to showcase some of my favorite health, beauty, home or fashionable items for the week.  These are items that I recently purchased and have been using often or I highly recommend to you.

Since it's been a little chilly lately, I have been wearing a lot of hats and scarfs and my latest hat fetish includes fedoras.  

Those who know me must know that I absolutely love candles, and I probably go through them in two weeks.  Anyway, this peppermint cranberry candle smells so good (available at Target).

I've been using this ELF eyeshadow palette this past week, and it's great because it has 100 shades in almost every color option.  I also found this beauty at Target for only $10.  They had other palettes for $5 as well.

This clutch was actually gifted, but I love the detailing and color of it.  It's classic with the gold clasp and chain.  What's also great about it is that the chain can be worn with it as a shoulder bag or removed as a clutch.

Since having a baby, I've been very conscience about my diet and work out regimen.  I have been getting a lot of questions regarding what I eat, how I lost my baby weight, and what my work out plan consists of.  I'll post more at a later date, but for now I want to highlight these LUNA nutrition bars.  I LOVE these bars.  They are ideal for women because the calorie content isn't really high, but you still get a high enough amount of protein in each bar.

Essie is one of my favorite nail polish brands.  Lately, I have been switching out these three tones: 1) Buy me a Cameo 2) Clambake and 3) Sand Tropez.  You can purchase Essie at almost any drugstore or generic store.

Last but not least, these Steve Madden booties are definitely one of my favorites.  The first time I spotted them was while window shopping on Lincoln Road and I knew that I had to have them.  I actually wore these babies for New Year's Eve.  They are extremely comfortable too.

What are some of your favorite items?
