Holiday Gift Guide: Glam Bestie

As promised here is the first installment of my Holiday Gift Guide, I will post gift ideas all week long, starting with gifts for the person who knows all your secrets: The Bestie! I went with a sparkly, night on the town look for her, starting with Arden B. sequin skirt and ending with my favorite fragrance Viktor & Rolf's Flowerbomb, the scent is so light yet definitely leaves an impact. The best part about this guide? Everything is under $100. Enjoy!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I am actually thankful for quite a few things, not the least of which is being around to see another turkey day. this time last year I washed my relaxed hair for the last time, i tried to do a twist out, didn't like the results, grabbed the scissors and started cutting. although this isn't a hair blog, I am thankful that I made that decision and that I've kept it up...I may put up pictures soon...we'll see.

Okay, back to beauty. The other thing I'm thankful for is Revlon Nail Polish in Minted. It's my favorite new color of the season, very reminiscent of Essie's Mint Apple, which was in the special 2009 winter collection. The color lasts long (it withstood me washing dishes and my daily typing) and it's a cool color to brighten the winter blahs (though i don't know much about that anymore since I live in South Florida).

In Navy

The gorgeous Chanel Iman covers the November issue of Ocean Drive magazine wearing Marchesa. Chanel is one of my favorite models, because she always looks like she's having fun. She also seems very down to earth and gives back to the community through various organizations, including The HerShe Group, a non-profit group that caters to girls in foster care.

MashMusic Review: The Lady Killer

I just picked up Cee Lo Green's new album The Lady Killer and I am in love with the entire album. Of course it has the catchy F**K You, about a guy who is with his old girlfriend, it has a '60s Motown vibe. I've played the whole album from start to finish and didn't skip one song (although I did replay a few). The album stays in line with his soul/hip-hop roots and one of favorite songs on the album is his collaboration with Lauren Bennet Love Gun, which is basically an ode to Cupid. Bennet is a member of the UK girls group Paradiso Girls (this is my first time hearing about them too), which from the look of their video is a Pussy Cat Dolls redux (Cee-Lo collaborated with them on Don't Cha).

    Anyway,  if you love Gnarls Barkley, Outcast or even B.O.B. The Lady Killer is definitely the album for you. Below Cee Lo's video for F**k You (it's uncensored). And following that, a clip from next week's episode of Glee, featuring Gwyneth Paltrow (if you haven't heard her sing Cruisin' you should check it out on Itunes) singing the censored version Forget You. Enjoy!

Holiday Dreaming...

Obviously I've been browsing through Asos a bit much lately...but I simply love these looks! They are perfect for the Holidays and are definitely inspired by the '60s. It looks like something Samantha Stevens cousin, Serena would've worn (can you tell how much I loooove Bewitched?) Enjoy!

We got our first taste of fall-like weather in Miami today! It's been in the 60's with a nice breeze all day, which got me a little excited about what I could wear now that the weather is changing. Another thing that has me a little excited Asos, the online retailer is now offering free shipping on all orders in the U.S. I have never ordered from them before, mainly because of the mixed reviews on the length of shipping time. But now, I believe I am finally ready to take the plunge, here are a few of the things I checked out: 

leopard print maxi

cable knit maxi 

cheap monday knit sweater dress

how cute are these leopard print-studs

Not sure yet what I will get, but I will let you know how the whole ordering/shipping process goes. What has your experience been ordering from Asos?

♥ Lanvin for H & M

I have never been more excited for a designer collabo, mainly because South Florida is finally getting an H&M (yaaaayy!!!!) Although it's still about an hour away in Palm Beach, it's a whole lot closer than Orlando. Anyway, the new store opens on Friday, Nov. 5 and my sister and I plan on being there to stand in the (hopefully not too long) line before it opens.  The Dolls Factory, was lucky enough to get her hands on exclusive photos from the Lanvin line, here are a few of my favorites. Enjoy!
