Inspiration To Recreation:Flower Arrangement

I had recently broke a vase that was square shaped. Which believe it or not are hard to find. I ended up buying this unique quadrilaterals vase. It didnt quite look the way I wanted to. So I did what any modern woman do and went on Pinterest for inspiration. I found this pic and knew I had to recreate this.

Last year I had a birthday party bought all these different kinds of sizes of pink diamonds. So instead of buying pearls I just used up my birthday decorations. They are more me anyway. I put the larger diamonds in the bottom,medium sized in the middle and the little ones last. Even though I feel that some of the smaller size ended up filling up empty spots. At the end I was happy with the final product...and it only cost me $6.00!

Lip Craze:ELF Matte Lip Colors

This is not a new product by any means just a lip product that I have loved for a long time and still do. Here are a few shades from ELF Matte lip color lipsticks.

Starting from the lightest to the darkest

This is a nude more in the cool side. A bit of a brown with a pink undertone.


This is something I believe is very rare to find a light coral. On my fair skin is was like a peachy nude but on my mother who has a bit more of a tan was a true coral.

Tea Rose

This is a cool purple with a grey undertone.


Toned down brick red

I love the formula to these lip products. Mattes can be difficult, whether they feel to dry or look crack. Luckily for me I have no problem with them. They wear great and can last for up to 4 hours. Good pigmentation and are true mattes. No shine but still manage to feel nice on the lips. What I love about them is that they are a lipstick in a pencil form. So it makes easier to apply. Each cost me $3.

Met Gala 2016 Favorites

6. Kylie Jenner: I personally love this dress! I think its sexy and classy and I am a sucker for shiny things. Her makeup and hair is on point! BUT I do feel like I have seen this dress before except in gold. So I feel like she didn't step out of the box plus she chose the obvious dress for the theme this year.

5.Kendall Jenner:SEXY!!!!!!!!! I like that the dress had this pop of color, perfect for spring. BUT again I do not see the theme of technology.

4.Emma Stone: First of all I love her as a redhead but I REALLY like this hair color on her as well. She just looks so beautiful. I like the classy element she brought in but yet keeping it "futuristic" with the metal accessories. It was a nice unexpected twist to such a classic dress.

3.Emma Watson: Let's be real is there anything she CAN'T pull off. No, not really but this assemble is just everything. It is a pantsuit disguised as a ball gown. Not easy to do and she pulled it off seamlessly. STUNNING!

2.Kate Hudson: Another actress who just seems to always get it right. She did sexy, classy and different all rolled into one. I am HUGE lover of white dresses and she looks so angelic. I literally took my breath away.

1. Claire Danes: I give the #1 spot to her because she looked like Cinderella and stayed within the theme. Her dress lights up!!!!! Come on no Disney princess dress does that. LOVE LOVE LOVE! Claire you light up the room...literally.

Snapchat Obsession

Hi! My name is Vanessa and I have a severe SnapChat Obsession. The first part is admitting it....right? Everyone I am sure you can relate or am I alone here? For me it is just the best way to communicate with a friends who live long distance. We can't always talk on the phone, so its a quick way to pop in my life. It is just the funnest way to waste time when you are REALLY bored. Or if a random thought pops up you can rant. But when SnapChat came up with the filters...I was a goner. SOOO MUCH FUN! I love them and cant get enough. Here is a collection of my fave pics.
