Yay Or Nay?: Nail Rings

First it was knuckle rings... now it's nail rings! I've been seeing fingernail rings on Pinterest and fashion magazine spreads. Thought the look might be a little impractical but I found a set at H&M so picked them up. I have to say there are some benefits - 1) Great way to hide a nail flaw lol. 2) Add some pizazz to your nail art.

My September Beauty Product Favorites (And Not So Favorite)

This month has been extremely humid. We unfortunately haven't had much Fall weather. I've been mostly trying to keep my pores unclogged after sweating from all the humidity. Lots of wipes and sprays. Here's what I loved and didn't love using this month:

My Fall Wardrobe

I've been beefing up my fall wardrobe lately. All the items pictured (minus the shoes) I've purchased. I still have my standard fall cravings of plaid and darker nail/lip colors. This year I've been leaning towards "cocoon"-style pieces to be cozy like this Old Navy coat and sweater dress.

September TV Reviews

Fall TV is back! September signals the beginning of football season, the start of fall and a slew of new tv shows. I'll be tuning into my favorites - Scandal, Empire, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Castle, Last Man on Earth, Jane the Virgin (and I'm sure I'm missing some). Let's discuss the new series:

Review: MAKE UP FOR EVER Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick Foundation

In my Sephora birthday haul I picked up MAKE UP FOR EVER's Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick Foundation. I've heard wonderful things about their foundations but was intrigued by the stick style. It is on the pricier side at $43 but it had a shade light enough for me so I took the chance.

Vegan Beauty Brand: A Beautiful Life

For my 30th birthday my mom picked up some vegan nail products from A Beautiful Life. Heading into my second year of veganism, I'm definitely trying more vegan friendly beauty products. Never heard of this brand but excited to see they're based in Jersey! All products are Paraben, Sulfate & Pthalate free while also being cruelty free.

Transitioning Into Fall

Fall officially kicks off tomorrow and us New Yorkers could not be more excited. After a brutally hot summer, when it dropped to 70 degrees we were whipping out the sweaters and PSLs lol. This weekend was the first time we felt a crisp breeze in the air so I took the opportunity to snap some photos. I've come around on the cropped look because as a little person it fits me perfectly lol. Works in my favor! Also, I'm sure this H&M skirt is meant to be a midi but on me it is maxi length. As it gets colder I'll be opting for oversized sweaters and some booties.

Best & Worst Dressed at the 67th Emmy Awards

Tonight was the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards hosted by Andy Samberg (who I love!). He did an excellent job with this opening number. He also amazingly finished the show on time. A big trend was fitted sequin gowns with vampy beauty looks. Very refreshing on the red carpet from the heavy tulle princess gowns.

#NYFW Nails

For Spring 2016, it seems minimalist and mod inspired nail art was the trend. Adam Selman balanced his feminine collection by giving his models a tomboy edge. Nail artists dipped actual nails into polish and stamped round shapes onto the model's nails. For Tanya Taylor's the manicurist designed a striped nail look that mimics the multicolored, layered jewelry of the Maasai people, giving each model her own unique combination. Prabal Gurung was about the two worlds of East meets West so the nail artist selected a pale yellow shade and added white shapes. "Each shape mimics the artistic curve of a brush stroke, and the unique color combination gives the feminine silhouettes a sporty edge.” For Phillip Lim's 10th anniversary, Sally Hansen added a stripe to honor his decade of style.

Art Hearts Fashion #NYFW Recap

Seeing all the gorgeous designs from the big names is great but I also enjoy seeing up and coming designers on display during New York Fashion Week. Art Hearts Fashion showcased 5 designers at the Vanderbilt Hall this season presented by AIDS Healthcare Foundation in association with FTL Moda. With a name like Mister Triple X what else could you expect? The first designer definitely got the party started with leather & metallic sexy pieces with their signature bunny ears.
