New Snakeskin Trend Alert: 'The Python Pedi'

Lately snakeskin print has been all the rage seen on many celebrities including fashion icons such as J-lo and Beyonce. Usually we see this trend in the form of handbags and shoes while sometimes on clothing but now it has has been transformed into a completely new form of...a pedi? Yes, you can now sport this snakeskin trend on your toes but it will be pricey costing you around $300. Terry Silacci is the talented creator of the trendy pedi which can take up to 3 hours but can last you up to 8 weeks. The most interesting thing about it is that she uses real natural sheddings from a four foot long female python which can be the base color of your choice. So what do you guys think? Would you get a real python pedi? Or just leave the trend to accesories? xoxo

Vanessa Hudgens : Intense New Role, Intense New Look

I could barely recogonize Vanessa Hudgens on the set of her upcoming film 'Gimme Shelter' where she plays a struggling homeless girl with a severe new look. Not only did she gain 10 pounds for this role (which takes a big toll on her tiny frame) but she also chopped off her gorgeous locks to create a rougher, tom boy type appearance which is far from her usual. I believe this shows just how devoted of an actress she truely is and I'm sure she will now have no problem switching up her usual Disney role image from now on. So what do you guys think? Would you go this far for a role you loved? Leave your comments below!

My Flawless Face Foundation Routine

Ever since I started my channel I've been getting countless requests to do an everyday foundation routine..well.. here it is! It's super simple and it works great with many different skin types. I usually don't wear too much makeup on a day to day basis so I thought this tutorial was perfect for an everyday routine. It's lightweight but still gives good coverage and a flawless finish. What more could a girl ask for? 

I always start out with a moisturizer. One of my all time favorites which I use in this video is   Clinique's Moisturizing Gel.
  1. After I let the moisturizer set in I apply a primer to fill in any fine lines and create a smooth base. Smashbox Photo Finish Bronzing Primer is great especially when you want a little extra color.
  2. For foundation I'm using Maybelline's Fit Me Foundation in 220 it's lightweight and has SPF 18. I like to apply it with a stippling brush for medium coverage.
  3. Once my foundation is settled I like to apply a bit of concealer. In this video I'm using Inglot's cream concealer 99.
  4. Last but not least I like to set it all with Revlon's ColorStay Mineral Finishing Powder in the shade Suntan Matte with a big fluffy brush to ensure everything lasts all day.
Hope this helps xox

New Arrival: Tory Burch Stacked Logo Reva Clutch = ♥

Recently at Saks I noticed these new arrivals from Tory Burch and fell in love! I've always been a fan of her designs because they are always so simple but still make a fashion statement. I thought these were the perfect reva clutches for my latest trends due to the fact that they are so simple yet so versatile. I can wear the clutch with a casual daytime outfit or bring it out with me at night and it will still look flawless. If your going for a more subtle look I recommend the black however if you want to be a bit more daring I'd go with the red for a vibrant pop of color. Which color would You chose?
