Easter Festivities WIth Style

Since I was a child, Easter and Spring go hand in hand. It's the day that you throw your wintery dark, black clothes to the back of your closet, and you bring out your flirty, colorful pieces.

This Easter, I was able to share it with my parents and cousins. We had a huge feast including paella, roast beef, lasagna, etc. While we enjoyed our lunch, the little ones were eagerly antacipating the Easter Egg Hunt, which turned out to be a huge success.

All in all, it was a great day with the family.

My Easter outfit included a beautiful green dress that my boyfriend bought me from Francesca's.

I paired it with Mark.'s White On Time Blazer and Mark.'s Studs and Style Stretch Belt

My sparkly gold ankle boots are from ShoeDazzle

All of my accessories, including necklace, ring, bracelet and watch are from Mark.

I also had to paint my nails to go with the Spring Theme:

From Thumb to pinkie: Julep Joy, Julep Leila, Julep Minnie, Julep Courtney, and Essie Mint Candy Apple

Happy Easter and I hope you guys had a great day as well!

Clean, Sweet and Oh So Fabulous!

I love, Love, LOVE, beauty products. Because of this, I'm always trying a variety of products from different brands.

At the moment, these are my recent top 3 products for this week.


My favorite beauty product at the moment for giving me a squeaky clean face is Mask of Magnaminty from Lush. I have used it about twice a week  for the past couple of months and I really do feel like it's cleaning deep into my pores. My boyfriend the other day commented on how my face looks "less bumpier" (his words) and nicer. I believe it's a combination of using this mask and my Clarisonic Mia daily.


I have super dry skin, so I have an array of lotions, body butters. etc. Lately, I have been using Mark's Body Butters every night. My two favorite scents are Lemon Sugar and Plum Berry. I alternate between the two of them. Although the scents are on the stronger side, they are not overpowering. I love both  of them. The scents are both sweet and feminie.


I received Julep's Rock Star Cream in my March box recently. Yesterday, I put it on like 3 times. Remember when I said that my skin is dry. Well if someone took a look at my hands, they would have thought they are looking at the hands of someone who is 50 years older than me. However, this cream makes my hands soft and they feel hydrated for a long period of time. I'm officially in love with this product.

Have you tried any of these three products? What are your thoughts on them?

Spring Pastels: March Julep Box

My nails favorite time of the month is finally here. My Julep March box arrived yesterday. This month it's all about pastels. These colors scream "SPRING" , which makes me very excited because I'm so tired of the cold and snow. This month I chose Boho Glam, which included Leila, a yellow shimmer, and Joy, a smoky purple creme. It also included a hand cream, which I can't wait to try, and a strawberry chap stick that I'm starting to get addicted to already.

My Swatches:



I also received my add-on, which was Minnie.


My favorite this month is a toss up between Minnie and Leila. I always love a pretty pink, but Leila reminds me of the sunshine and warmth that I'm so craving.

Do you guys have a favorite Julep color this month?
