OPI: Deutsch You Want Me Baby? Nail Polish

While I was at Ulta yesterday, I was instantly drawn to a nail polish color that screams- FALL!
It is Deutsch You Want Me Baby?, which is part of OPI's new fall Germany collection.

This is a shimmery red-orange color. This color is gorgeous. It's even more beautiful in person. The formula is really great. It goes on smoothly and easily. I love, love, love it!

This color is actually more red in person than it is in the pictures.

Do you guys have a favorite color from the Germany collection?

Pick & Choose: Outfit of the Day

I'm really excited because my awesome boyfriend gave me the Clarisonic Mia Skin Care System. I've only used it for a couple of days, so I can't give you a proper review yet. I will do a better, more detailed, review with before and after pictures in about a month. The one thing I have realized in this short time is that my skin does feel smoother. If you want to know how it goes, come back in to visit my blog next month.

In other news, today at work we were able to wear jeans and have a more casual dress down day. This is exciting for me because I have to wear a uniform every day. This is what I chose to wear:

Black Blouse from NY& Company

Jeans are from Express and they are Eva Curvy Fit (Mid Rise) Skinny Jeans - I've tried to find this type of jeans on Express's website, but it doesn't seem like they make the Eva jeans anymore. Does anyone know for sure?

3/4 Sleeve Sweater Cardigan in Orange from Forever 21

Boots are mark. Gimme the boot

mark. Sparks Fly necklace

I was also wearing cute earrings, which you can't see from the picture, so here is a close up:

mark. Smoke and Mirrors Earrings

To keep myself warm when I leave work at night, I have a cute new hat.

I love the beginning of Fall. There is a cool, crisp breeze, but it's still warm enough, so you don't need a coat.  It's Awesome!

Here is my Fall Outfit of the Day:

And a picture, in which you could see my cute puppy:

I saw this dress on the blog Living After Midnight . I thought it was so cute, so I knew I had to get it.

The outfit consists of-
Lace Dress from Forever 21.

The bag and scarf are on sale right now.

Berry Glittery

Today I combined two different nail polishes to create an awesome look.

As a base color, I used 2 coats of ncLA's Hello, I Love You from their Summer of '69 collection.
It's a pinkish purple color that the company describes as a berry color. 

It went on really smoothly and the color is very pretty. It's probably one of my mom's favorite colors from my nail polish collection.When I do her nails, she always asks for it.

I paired it with KBShimmer's Cheerleader polish from the Clique Collection. KBShimmer is an indie nail polish brand and you can find it on etsy. This is my first KBShimmer nail polish and it's most likely not going to be my last. This polish is a great combination of white, pink and blue glitter in different sizes.

With The Camera Flash:

I think that the glitter definitely pairs up well with Hello, I Love You.

What do you guys think?

Hitting the Mark- Make It Rich Lip Crayon

My post today is about some new products that Mark has come out with that are amazing.

In case you don't know, Mark is a division of Avon, and they have really great cosmetics, skin care, clothing, accessories, etc.

One of their newer products that I really like is Mark's Make It Rich Lip Color Crayon .  ($11 each)

These lip crayons are creamy, beautiful and they last for a long time. They can definietly be used on their own. I usually put a lipgloss on top to add more shine.

Me with the Make It Rich Naturally Lip Crayon:

Make it Rich- Naturally Color

This is a nude color, but it does have a bit of shimmer.


Make it Rich- Punch Color

This color is a light pink. I like to put it on when my eye makeup is heavy and I want a light lip color to balance it out.  I also like to add lip gloss on top of this color to make it pop a bit more. 

Make it Rich Punch Lip Crayon with Mark's Juice Gem Raspberry Gloss on top:

My Complete Look:

This look was done with Mark's new Wet/ Dry Eyeshadows
I used them dry and the colors are Ice Age, Biscotti, Empress and Tiki
Mark's Touch and Glow on my face, which is my favorite Mark product at the moment. 
The Eyeliner is Mark's No Place to Run Eyeliner in Jet Set and the lips are Naturally Lip Crayon.

You can find all of these products in my Mark E-boutique:

Hellooooo Autumn!

It's starting to get chilly outside. Summer is starting to say farewell, which means fall fashion is starting to appear. Pretty soon, we will see scarfs, cute hats with bows, sweaters and best of all the greens, deep blues and wine colors of fall.

However, since we are not completely in fall yet, I have a an awesome nail color that is a great transition from summer to fall.

I used Julep's Georgia as a base and I put Julep's O Canada over it.

 This is with natural light coming from the window:

This is inside the house:

For some reason, the red and gold sparkles remind me of the leaves feeling and it reminds me that the season is starting to change.

Georgia was one of the easiest Julep colors to put on. Some of them tend to be a bit thicker, but this one went on smoothly and easily.

Both colors are beautiful either on their own or together.
