Hi Ladies!
It's been a while since the last time I updated my blog. As the new year rolled in, I found it a bit more difficult to fit my blog into my schedule. But have no fear, I've managed to make more time to this ol' thing and I'm excited to get back to it! 

Recently, I went to hair salon O&M- they are an Australian based salon and they invited me to their NYC flag ship to get a hair update. I got my bangs trimmed and a hair gloss that also tones your hair for up to 6 weeks! I was a little nervous at first but I'm so happy that I did! In the 4th picture above you can see the touches of red-ish brown, It's subtle but I love it. I would highly recommend this salon if your in the NYC area. Below see some photos of the stunning space.
 I can't wait to go back!

Happy Holidays!

Nadri Earrings

The holidays are upon us! How quickly time passes by right? With everything happening so quickly it's important to slow down, relax and spend these specials times with the ones you love. With all the festivities that are coming up that means it acquires getting a little dolled up (for me at least!) and today I would like to share you my make up look that I will be wearing this Christmas.

I knew I wanted a festive look but also a look that would be long lasting. So, with-out a doubt I went for my Expert Last Lip Lacquer in the color Rockaway Ruby. I love that it can handle a night of food and drinks and the color stays on my lips! On my eyes I have on the 24HR Waterproof Eye Shadow in Brooklyn Mocha and Big Bold Angel Lash Mascara to make my eyes appear larger. To finish off the look, I applied 2 coats of the Long Wearing Nail Enamel in the color Broadway Burgundy Frost.

What do you girls think of this look? Let me know in the comments below.

This concludes my last blog post in 2015! 
I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful holiday and I look forward to a New Year with you all!

Lots of love,
Maria

The Mountains Are Calling

I went to Vermont last weekend to get away from the craziness of the city and it felt amazing to be surrounded by trees and mountains. The weather was colder up North and made me realize how Winter is right around the corner and with the days being shorter, our skin is naturally getting little less sun. But that doesn’t mean our glow has to fade away! Lately I have been using my Smooth Skin 2 in 1 Compact Foundation and Concealer and my Color Wheel Mosaic Face Powder to help me stay radiant. I’m a no fuss kind of girl so I find these products easy to apply and it last all day. To complete the look I used my Big Bold Curl Mascara, the HD Automatic Waterproof eyeliner and my Smooch Proof Liquid lip stain. What are some tips and products you use to keep your glow thought the colder months? Let me know in the comments section below!

Aerosoles booties
As the weather is becoming a bit colder, I'm trying to find perfect pieces to transition in to my Fall/Winter wardrobe. I found this faux fur vest from Lulu's and Aerosoles booties that I felt where easy to style.  Since the booties are from Aerosoles you know that not only are they cute but they are super comfortable (Yes, to #fashionthatfeelsgood)! I joined in on their style-off competition that they are hosting on their Facebook page HERE. 

Voting starts November 16th!
So please vote for me!
