Love Package from Chrystina :)

Posted in contest, friends, friendship, funk, gift, giveaway, inspiration, lipstick, my man, prize, thank you by fashionista514 on June 27, 2009
So if you didn’t already know, I was the runner-up winner for the GORGEOUS and poetic Chrystina’s NARS contest/giveaway (out of 100 peeps yo – soooo amazing)!!! If you aren’t already following her beautiful thoughts, go IMMEDIATELY… RIGHT NOW to her blog

Whimsical Rose

Once you get there you will know exactly what I mean when I say that this girl is heartbreakingly beautiful in every sense of the word… she can find beauty in absolutely everything and her posts dictate personal strength, motivation, dreams and dilemma’s… all the while adding a fairytale twist to her every perspective 🙂 This is why I am addicted to her blog… it is her au naturale… raw art.

Alright, so enough with the sappiness… on with the show 😉 Look at the beautiful vintage card she sent me!!! Complete with a Barbie sticker to seal the envelope… loves it…

Chrystina shared some tips on how to “work it” in my new NARS Dolce Vita lipstick (will be posting pics verrrry soon), and quoted one of my absolute favorite scenes from Sex and the City (remember when Carrie is standing by the water fountain in the white dress with her hair all wild and curly…)

“Maybe some women aren’t meant to be tamed. Maybe they need to run free until they find someone just as wild to run with them”

-Carrie Bradshaw-

How true is this quote… I cannot even begin to explain… Some women can handle being in a relationship ruled by a man. Some can handle being suffocated and held down from achieving their dreams. Some can accept that no matter how devoted they are to their man, they will never see it returned. Some can put their lives on hold for another, only to find out in the end that their lives are already over.

I am proud to say that I am not, and never will be one of these women. I have found my wild match who, chases me actually, and keeps me reaching for everything I ever wanted to achieve. If one day he were to change, he would have been the one who had made me strong enough to not care, and just do it anyways :). Thank you babes – you have given me the priceless gift of self worth, confidence and “fuck the world, I’m gonna do whatever I want”

… like I said… priceless 😉

Alright, alright… seems today we are getting quite sidetracked huh?!?! Back to business once more…

So, as if a beautiful card filled with beautiful words and a NARS lipstick weren’t enough… darling Chrystina included this super funky/fresh red & black zebra print bangle!!! Groovy baby (that is my tribute to Austin Powers… I will shut up now…)!!! I LOVE THIS BRACELET! I can already feel it’s gonna be bringing out my wild (favorite) side… 😉

Thank you girl! Your package was so thoughtful and packed with a taste of your personality – tres cool… I consider this bracelet some kind of friendship bangle – def always think of you when I wear it.

For all of you who read this post and DIDN’T do as I TOLD YOU TO at the beginning (going IMMEDIATELY to Whimsical Rose)….

***sorry… not meaning to be rude… I’m just dishing it out today***

Homage to Red Lips

Posted in lipstick, makeup by fashionista514 on April 11, 2009
What could possibly be more glamorous or sensual than a pair of perfectly painted red lips? Women have made putting lipstick on a ritual for centuries, and who can blame them when you can instantly transform yourself into the maintained seductive goddess you’ve always wanted to be?!? Here is my homage to my favorite lip shade… enjoy the red revolution 😉

Snakeskin Lulu Guiness Red Lips Clutch

The always daring retro beauty Von Teese

I have no idea who the hell this chick is, but she looks freakin’ gorgeous so I’m all for her!

Girl next door Jessica Alba

Katherine Heigl trades her comfy style for some glam!

Kirsten Dunst models for the Miu Miu eyewear campaign

Mmmmm… red gloss…

The cover that stopped me in my tracks. The absolute definition of va-va-voom!

Platinum blonde compliments a fierce red so amazingly!

Cindy, Cindy, Cindy. Timeless. Classic!

Who would Gwen be without her red lips? She brings funk to the classic style. LOVE HER!

Pick up the phone… MUAH 🙂

The one who started it all… Marilyn the ICON

Oooops! How did this get in here?!?!? Me posing as Britney Spears during her wig-obsessed days… lol… incognito 😉

WOW! Kardashian KILLS it. Love the contrast of the lipstick color to her hair!

The ever-sultry Scarlett

Foxy Rebecca Romin

Ah, Sienna knows the fashion classics… red and cheetah print…

The gorgeous Cruz sisters (Penelope and Monica)

Slap on some Red Lips – I promise you will feel amazing!

Retro Glam Sparkle!

Posted in accessory, fashion, lipstick, makeup, online shopping by fashionista514 on April 9, 2009
Here are some personal pieces I put together to create a retro glam look – with a walk on the modern side (confused by my contradiction yet!?). I adore the colour black. In a patent shine, soft leather, faded out denim, sparkling or satin finish – black is multi-faceted and very versatile.
I scored these over the top chandelier earring diamond look alikes at Aldo for $30.00. I love pairing them with the faux diamond chunky ring (below) $25.00 (Aldo), jeans, and some killer heels… top it all off with black winged eyeliner and sexy is mine!

Around Christmas last year I treated myself to this gorgeous Gucci watch. I wear it like it is jewellery – not a watch. I love that it isn’t bulky and carries the brands signature horse bit trademark into its styling. One of my investment pieces!

The jewelled clutch which I snatched up from Nine West is another undeniable favorite and instant classic to my life. Altogether, this combo calls for a slick martini and MAC’s russian red lipstick to pull it all off 😉

You will see me sparkle from a mile away 😉
