Beats by Oscar De La Renta…

Oscar De La Renta, collaborated with Dr. dre for these exclusive “luxe silver fox” versions of the Beats by Dre earphones. Since they are special edition, they are priced at $695…

Do you think it’s worth the price? Or are you paying for expensive ear muffs?

I think they are the cutest earphones for a fashionista NOT on a budget. I wonder if the fox are detatchable… No one wants fur on their ears in the summertime, right?

Style Cap: Color Blocking

“Color Blocking” is very big fashion trend as of right now. On my last trip to Goodwill, I found this crazy colored striped Jones New York shirt. My mom kept telling me the shirt was ugly, but I saw so much fashion potential.

I paired the shirt with green skinny jeans from Target, which actually were my sister Brandy’s christmas present. LOL.
For accessories, I paired it with black cross earrings from Forever 21 & black and red bangles.

My outfit could’ve gone for a tribute to the late 80s/90s too, right?

How did I pull off my color block inspired look?

Beauty Tip: The importance of teeth whitener

When you meet someone the first thing they look at are your teeth. I know I look at people’s teeth & there’s nothing worst than seeing someone with yellow teeth. To keep my teeth pearly white, I use the crest 3-D white strips. They are AMAZING!

To appropriately use the 3-D whitestrips, you have to put the strips on twice a day for thirty minutes. Make sure you don’t brush your teeth before you put the strips on. You have to keep the regime for a week and you’ll have teeth white as snow! 🙂

I have been using the strips and love them…. If anyone uses them please comment & let me know your opinion.

Christmas 2011

I feel the older you get the less the presents mean to you for Christmas. I really enjoy watching the excitement my siblings get opening their gifts. Well, my family decided to do “Secret Santa” within the family and my gift from my S.S. were three bags of watermelon sour patch kids (exactly what I asked for (-: ) and a houndstooth scarf.. My S.S. did a great job on my gift! I was very happy with that and watched everyone open their gifts.

During that time, my mom disappeared for a little while as we start to clean away some of the wrapping paper. She came back downstairs with her hands behind her back, she tells me since im the oldest she wanted to give me a nice gift of quality… and hands me an orange Hermes bag from around her back. It’s somewhat a blur of what happened at that point, but im pretty sure there was some screaming & maybe jumping involved.
It took me a few minutes to actually open the box, but when I did I opened it to the ‘H’ Hermes cuff… Ahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!

What’s crazy is that I was just on the Hermes website with my mom a few nights ago looking at all of the accessories… I am beyond words of thanks to my parents for such a wonderful. It’s only the start to my Hermes collection. 🙂

I also got myself a pair of Jeffrey Campbell Lita’s… not the spiked pair that I put on my Christmas list, but the pair that I feel embodied me more.

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday with the people that mean the most to them! 🙂

I will post more of the holiday fun later… Stay tuned!

Are you moisturizing your skin in the winter?

Don’t you hate it when you leave the house on a winter day and realize your skin is very dry the second your outside? There are ways to prevent that from happening….

I mentioned in my previous beauty post that I use noxzema on a daily basis. I definitely use it more when the weather begins to get colder. Noxzema is always a good product for keeping your skin mosturized & it’s better to apply more than your normal amount in the winter. I add twice the amount than I normally do, because Nozxema is my only mosturizer to my face.

Now for your body, A oil based lotions are the best.
According to WebMd, “Find an “ointment” moisturizer that’s oil-based, rather than water-based, as the oil will create a protective layer on the skin that retains more moisture than a cream or lotion. (Hint: Many lotions labeled as “night creams” are oil-based.)” Do be careful to use the lotions primary on your body, because they can actually clog the pores on your face. I often use the cetaphil lotion, which, is also a nice thick and keeps me moisturized. The off brand, “Up & Up” from target also has a “moisturizing lotion” for a lower price if you do not feel up to paying the price for Cetaphil.

Also, It’s best to keep your feet moisturizing in the nights while your sleeping.

Last, but not least, keep your body hydrated with water!! It’s great to keep your skin healthy from the inside also.

Fashion Side Note: If you are to wear a wool, make sure to have a layer between the wool & your skin. Wool is very irritating your skin and can make your skin easily dry.

I help these tips can you in the winter time!

Dear Diary? My shopping day at work.

This past weekend, We had a special employee shopping day where we got 30% off all of our purchases. I definitely used it to my advantage… I purchased lots of great classic pieces to add to my wardrobe.

1 & 2- Nike plaid print running short & yoga capris. Both pieces were on sale and were definitely needed for working out & going to yoga.

3- Kate Spade ‘Nellie’ Dress. This was the puchased tht I had to really think about being that the dress was $395, even though I did have my 30%. I never had spent tht much a dress before, but the quality of the dress was so nice that it would be a wonderful investment.

4- Frenchi Peter Pan Blouse. This shirt was giving me such a Chanel feel.. I couldn’t resist purchasing it. I’m thinking about purchasing a second shirt.

I also purchased a pair of black slacks, the camel colored skirt that was featured in my last style cap, & the matching nike sports tank top to my shorts & capris.

Style Cap

I can’t even remember the last time I wore a skirt… lol.

I purchased this skirt from my job this past Saturday. I really want my style to become more clean, classic, & filled quality. Meaning no more big purchases from Forever 21…. Now it’s more about the quality of the clothing.

The look was aimed to be a smooth, almost seventies inspired…..how do you think I did?

Turtleneck- My mom’s closet… I believe it was from Banana Republic
Skirt- Nordstrom (BP dept)
Boots- Target
Accessories- Material Girl line, Claires, Charlotte Russe

Dear Diary? My DYI project…..

I have decided to start doing a few “diary” type entries that are more personal…
Now knowing myself I most likely wont be consistent with a weekly post, but I will put one up when I feel necessary. So don’t look back every week for a personal & be disappointed. Kidddinggg!

This first entry is on a personal DIY project I will do….

After work, I was walking into TJ Maxx with one of my coworkers and walked past a girl with the CUTEST boots on. So mid sentence, I cut off my coworker & ask her where she got her boots. She tells us that she got them in a boutique near little five points. (Which means they were probably over priced!)

I ask her if I can take a picture of the boots & my coworker asks,” Is this for your blog?” That’s how much I take pictures or have them take pictures of me for it… Sad, I know.

Anywho, These are the boots and I think I can do these myself!

First on my list is to find a fold over black timberland type boot. That shouldn’t be THAT hard. I’ll browse my usual spots F21, Charlotte Russe, etc. I want to find boots that I actually like, but don’t want to spend 100,0000,000,000,000 dollars. (You know I am always a fashionista on a budget!!!!!!)

Next, I am going to figure out what type of studs or stones I want on the boots. Also, the best way to keep them secure!

If anyone has any suggestions, please comment & let me know! 🙂

Until next…. xoxo TFF —if you watch gossip girl you would semi understand that. LOL
