IMATS 2011

Hola chicas sorry long time no posts but was having some issues with the media card and could not upload pics. Well enough of that I wanna share with you lovelies some of the loot from IMATS this past weekend.

Let me just start off  by saying what a great experience it was and most of all I am so glad to have had Candy from Curves Ahead Makeup blog as a host! Yes she is super nice and her blog is one of my faves but she is even sweeter in person. Once she picked me and my friend Patty from the airport we just started rambling on and on like old friends we totally clicked. Thank you Candy for spending so much time with us during our brief stay in Pasadena! I love blogging and this community as it has put me in the way of the sweetest, nicest, and most creative people I would have not met otherwise or crossed paths with alot of you have become part of my everyday life and so special to me as you all share some part of your lives with me.

IMATS was super packed and they had an astounding amount of makeup, hair, beauty, tools, you name it anything beauty related. They also had fashion shows, classes, and a monster makeup competition which really showcased the talents of the makeup artists as the monsters were indeed scary. I was in awe at all the setups of the booths and the merchandise that I probably did not buy as much as I could have but I did snap alot of pics. Plus there is always next year right girls?! Wink wink ; )

OOTD: Hint of Blue

Hello lovely ladies I am getting to the end of my week and loving it. This weekend excitement is already hitting me. I can't wait to go to IMATS and meet all the wonderful bloggers from the beauty community and all the goodies that will be seen there in form of makeup! For sure I know I will be feeling like a kid in a candy store and want

Are any of you attending IMATS? If so let me know we can all meet there I know I will be joining up with some lovely ladies over there and finally meeting them in person I can't believe it.

Here is an outfit of the day it was after work and we just went to grab a bite to eat, it got very late and my photographer was a bit tired so these pics will have to do sorry girls. Tried to incorporate a little hint of color in this look and tie in the color of the top with my eyes. Lately due to the scorching summer heat I have been keeping the makeup a bit on the lighter side.

Sorry for the weird angle but I had to take a pic even if it was late at night.

Hair pulled back headband and loose ponytail.

Sheer top: Charlotte Russe Cami: GAP Jeans: Almost Famous

Sandals: Bonnibelle Sandals

Comfy small wedge

Hoop earrings: Rainbow Blue liner: Urban Decay Lip gloss: Jordana Pink sheer shade

XOXO Buh-bye lovelies!

Haul: A few summer goodies

Hola chicas! I have been trying to be good for the past almost two weeks. Have only picked up items to spruce up what I already own and thing that catch my attention.

All the stuff is from stores like  Forever21, Rainbow, Charlotte Russe, Jewelmint, and some online shopping. I have been going crazy with online shopping lately as it has been so hot here that I avoid going outside as much unless we are going swimming or into another air conditioned area! Hope you like some of the stuff and also please let me know what are your summer goodies and what you like to accessorize with this summer so that I too can get my hands on those goodies.

Jewelmint Box

I am addicted this is my 3rd item from them pretty necklace that's adjustable

Thank you Phoenix Fashion Week! My fiancee and I are happy with this fabulous book!

Casual Coral

Hello beauties. This was a very busy weekend for me as I did some extra "time" at work and this cut my weekend short. I felt as if during the week I was constantly rushing and running late for something even if that was not the case. I hardly had nay time for "me" time as I was running errands and getting things organized.

Below is a simple outfit I put together. Coral tunic against a pop of turquoise for contrast and some understated random accessories just to mix things up a bit. I think I will have to get more coral items in my closet as many people complimented me on how good this color looked on me, I was flattered! Hope you girls like what you see.

Tunic: Forever21 Pants: Almost Famous Necklace: Charlotte Russe Bangle: My sister's

Sandals: (Circa 2010 Steve Madden)

Leather bag: (Mexico City Trip Circa: 2003)

Silly me: Borrowed my sisty's shades.
