Beauty: Sephora goodies

In case you have not checked these new items on the Sephora website I would like to share my personal faves (on my wishlist)

How cute is this name for a skincare line? Drunk Elephant. The Marula oil is said to be better than argan oil which Im very curious about,also excited to try the soaps and serums. Some of the items are currently out of stock, try ordering through their website.  

The Shiseido solution gel was formulated to help combat breakouts, reduce visible pores and help make the skin smoother.           

I have a thing for highlighters and I have been eyeing on this Park Ave Princess Palette from Tarte. Perfect for travel, easy to carry around.

Fashion: New in

This year I see myself investing more in classic pieces. I purchased quite a bit last year but I do not just let my stuff sit in my closet as a display of some sort. The more I use them the more I feel I have gotten the value of my money.
Working in fashion made me appreciate the art of mixing and matching. Some days when Im in the mood I will go for an all out designer outfit and some days you will see me in a $5 top, boyfriend jeans and Valentino flats.
I really dont care, if I like something I wear it.

Trying new make up too, the new shade of my YSL Touche Eclat is in 3.5, it helps brighten my under eyes. I bought the Stila foundation since the SA said it gives medium to full coverage, it didnt work for me though, did not like the texture or feel of the make up. It felt sticky to me. Finally got my hands on the matte Tom ford lipstick I decided to get the shade called Pussycat and it is such a beautiful color. Cover FX primer is something new for me, I have seen it several times on the Sephora website but since I still have several primers Id like to finish I didnt purchase it right away. I used it this morning and I am liking it so far.

Fashion: In stores

My latest shoe purchases inspired me to do more research and check what is new in the market. This time it didnt do me any damage (yet). Some are for pré order.

Personal: 2015!

For my first post of the year I want to give a shoutout to all of my readers. It's been amazing seeing people from all over the world. I never knew my life would be appealing to others, even surprising to get emails saying that I have inspired someone. Thank you so much for taking your time in reading my posts.
I started doing the blog as my way of remembering the journey (since I moved here in the US August of 2012). I then shared outfit ideas, showed where the great deals are and  featured products that helped with adult acne (love trying new beauty products).
There is still a lot to improve in this blog. Quality of photos and more content. It's a process and I know eventually I will get there. 
This quote I found today is very appropriate for this blog post.
Cheers to the new year!
To the dreamer in us and hope we all achieve our goals for this year.
