Black & White Floral Nails

Black & White is forecasted to be a big trend this Spring while florals are always a classic choice for that time of year. These two looks are combined in this monochromatic floral nail art. My inspiration was my new cardigan from the Prabal Gurung for Target collection.

This week my mind has definitely been focused on Spring. I am all for the colder months and highly anticipate fall & winter each year. I guess I am just always ready for a change. When it came down to choosing my Seven this week, I thought should I even bother? I didn't really feel like too much happened, just rushing from place to place. Then, I realized there are always some little things that happen each week that make you happy & that's the whole point of this weekly post!

[Loving the Real Techniques Core Collection for flawless make-up application]

[My new go-to eyeshadow look. Colour for a change but neutral enough for everyday]

[Having fun trying out a new nail art brush set]

[My Starbucks addiction has been in full-force this week]

[Hat tiles in the East 23rd Street Station]

[New spring scents for a rainy day]

[Admiring the beauty of Winter while imagining the future green leaves]

Well, there was my week. I'm glad I ended up posting this, even if I didn't feel too inspired. And looking back through the week's pictures does put it into perspective. I actually did have a pretty good week. :]  & I hope you did too.

Desk Organization

As I showed in my Seven, last week I rearranged & reorganized my most well-used place in the apartment. Though I am one to grab my computer & papers and set myself up on the couch, bed, kitchen counter, & even the floor, I love being able to work at a nice, clean desk. Our only size requirement in leasing our apartment was enough space for us both to have our own desk. Living in Brooklyn, this can be a tall order. Thought it's a bit cramped we each managed to create our individual office spaces. Mine just has a bit more colour & beauty products. Today, I thought I would share my space.

What's in my Bag?

I would think I was just nosy if I didn't know (for a fact!) that people love seeing what people carry around in their bag! Today I thought I'd share what I keep with me at all times. It can be tough to balance having everything you may need without being overburdened by things you will never actually use. I haven't quite found the right balance but here are the things I have been carrying along with me nonetheless.

Well, here we are again, another week has gone by! I'm so happy that tomorrow is a holiday. It's nice to have an extra day in the weekend. Here are some little things that I enjoyed these past seven days.

Review | NYX Cheeks & Lips

 I love make-up, and the more blogs I read & YouTube videos I watch, the longer my wishlist for new products grows. I crossed off several items off with these new NYX products.  I have actually never tried anything from NYX before despite attractive prices & rave reviews on so many different types of products. I have been really interested in adding to my blush collection as well, so I figured let's knock two things out at once! & I threw in some lipgloss for good measure.

Valentine's Day Roses Nail Art

I love Valentine's Day! It is truly one of my favourite holidays. I feel like I have so many Valentine's Day traditions. Maybe even more than family of all girls is weird I guess! Whether I am single or in a relationship, I am a sucker for the cutesy printed socks, stationery, & stickers. And who doesn't love going out to eat? Whether it be lunch with family & friends or dinner with the boyfriend, I love an excuse to splurge at a favourite restaurant & on little gifts for loved ones!

Sunday Seven

This week was super hectic! I spent most of my time at my externship or working on my thesis. Any down time I had was spent laying around trying to recover. This weekend I did spend a little time outside post Blizzard Nemo. Here are a few things that helped my get through this crazy week!

[Organizing my Morning with Labeled Coffee Jars]

[My Externship Site]

[New Beauty Items from Sephora]

[Rococo in the Snow]

[Walking through a Winter Wonderland]

[Enjoying the Snow in Prospect Park]

[Crafting a DIY Candle]

In non-pictorial news, this week....
  • I was on the F-Train with Steve Buscemi (& was totally awkwardly about it)
  • I caught up with HBO's Girls (new TV obsession)
  • I went crazy online shopping (make-up, fashion, home)
  • I am so excited for Valentine's Day (I found Preston the most perfect gift!)

As always, I hope you had a lovely week!

Julep Maven | February 2013

I resubscribed to Julep Maven & am so happy I did! I just received my box for February, and I am in love with all the nail polishes. I just had to use them right away! The theme for this month was "Get on the A-List" and the polishes are from the "Glamour Collection".  The polishes were inspired by famous Hollywood actresses.
