A Pearlescent Edginess

IMG_9063

Welcome to 2018! A new year of edginess, sophistication , and creativeness. I wanted to start off the year extremely different than the rest by mixing up my wardrobe to not only bring you all some style but a unique sense of combination that you can actually implement it to your daily life, or at least when you go out.

I have found that breaking the rules when wearing a sophisticated item can go very well if worn correctly and minimally. The perfect example is a pearl dress. Pearls are known to be the gem of showing sophistication, so I decided to spice it up and pair it with tights and chunky neutral heels. It says I’m sophisticated but I’m also not taking my self too seriously.

New Years Eve OUTFITS AND PLANS

THIS NEW YEAR I PLAN TO DO 3 THINGS DIFFERENT….

 

New Years Eve is here and I’m so excited to start fresh! I don’t know about you but I’m so eager to get 2018 rollin through and accomplishing 3 tasks I have set my mind to. Over the past years I have noticed how frustrating it would be for me to welcome the new year, especially during the week of my birthday because I would turn a year older and notice how I had not managed to meet my personal goals, and to top it off the new year was approaching and I had nothing to show for.

Of course being young means making a TON of mistakes, but I plan on making this year my last. So, the question is, what 3 things do I plan on doing different this 2018?

 

3 Things I will do different

  1. Set a routine
  2. Invest my savings
  3. Travel

NOW THAT ITS SETTLED , MOVING ON TO OUTFITS

My Top 3 Winter Staples

Winter is almost here, even though here in California it seems more like fall.

I can’t complain too much though because the weather has been tricky and wearing sweaters has been a tad bit dreary due to the semi heat we get. But with that being said, I am more than excited for winter to arrive because I want to wear my top 3 winter staples each and every day.

The first is the TRENCH COAT

It is a must in my closet. It’s the best fashion accessory to wear for any occasion. Layer anything under and top it off with the trench. It’s a warmer indeed.

SHOP THIS TRENCH COAT :Floral trench coat

Next is STATEMENT SWEATERS

One of my favorite fashion trends this year has got to be the statement sweaters. It’s a different approach to an ordinary simple sweater and I find it spices things up a bit.

SHOP THIS SWEATER: Bow tie sweater

Lastly the SHORT DRESS

I love boots, especially knee high boots. I find that short dresses are the key to flaunt those long and tall boots. They both meet half way creating a super stylish combo.

Skin Care Time With ALOETTE

Aloe Vera has been known to be the best ingredient in achieving perfect and flawless skin. ALOETTE is known for their natural base product, Aloe Vera. Making the skin feel nourished and refreshed each time. I have been so intrigued lately, since I see my mom buy it daily, that I decied it was time to pay attention to my skin. I am aware that prepping the skin is essential in the long run, and I have been noticing that my skin needed a little TLC, but in this case it needed some Aloe Vera. So with out doubting, I can say that I have found the products I will probably return to each time after they run out.

Keeping scrolling to see my review on each of these ALOETTE products.

1.MUDDY UP Deep Cleansing MUD Masque

aloette-skin-care

mud-mask

I absolutely adore this mask! I love how it is formulated with cucumber extract and salicylic acid. Thats the part I found so interesting! Since I have oily skin, its definitely a win for my skin. I really liked how it quickly grabs onto your skin and starts to work instantly, removing dirt, oil, and the appearance of my pores are reduced.

The feeling afterwards is a smooth matte finish. I will for sure keep on doing this mask twice a week.

2.NUTRI-HYDRATING MIST

aloe-vera-mist

This hydrating mist claims to leave you glowing and giving you a healthy looking complexion look. I must say, it totally does! I tried it once, and it only took that once to be convinced when I looked in the mirror. Its so cool how the mist has vitamins A, E, and C, giving your skin that drink it needs. You can literally spray it everywhere on your body, and over your makeup, I mean its the quickest thing to do in the morning to achieve that glowy look.

TIP: spray it only 3x on your face , other wise you might get that sticky feeling if sprayed too many times.

3.INTESTIY STRETCH Lash-Lengthening Mascara

aloette-mascara

Now this mascara, it already comes angled so its quite easy and quick to get all the lashes done fast. I am amazed at the fact that its formula is made of vitamin B5, rose water, jojoba and roseship seed oil.  I love how much length it gives to my lashes, its a great source of vitamins for the lashes.

TIP: If you have straight long lashes, steer away from this mascara. If you have natural curly lashes, by all means, go for it 🙂

The Sporty Chic Look


I may not always wear joggers or sweats, but since the weather has been cooling down I haven’t really felt like wearing my jeans each time I go out for quick errands. So of course I had to go to SHEIN.com

They have the most affordable and cute clothing anyone could ever ask for. It fits my budget, keeps me happy, and makes me stay stylish. I was completely in love with the jacket and jogging pants I found. They make me feel very comfy and flexible at the same time, which usually is pretty tough for me to find items that make me feel at ease, so this was definitely a win win for me!

Wearing: SWEATPANTS / JACKET 


Much love, Karen ❤

Pajama Shirt Done Casual

pajama-shirt-done-casual

While I love to be in plain ol t-shirts, there is just no escaping my love for casual chicness.  I love that the weather is finally getting some sense into itself and longs levees are sounding super perfect!

Pairing pajama shirts with classic blue jeans and colorful heels, or sneakers, are what brings my creativeness out. Who doesn’t like to look good and feel creative at the same time 🙂 Its the perfect shirt for casual outings in the city.  Just in time for thanksgiving.
