MAC Glamour Daze Collection: Dramatic Encounter Lipstick

As you can see from my last post, dark lips have been all the rage in fashion / beauty trends as well as my new obsession! I recently went to MAC for the releasing of their new limited edition collection 'Glamour Daze' and picked up a dark eggplant color in Dramatic Encounter. It is an Amplified lipstick and I am completely in love with it! I will be updating this post with swatches and more pictures soon.

Fall Fashion : Maroon Loving

For those of you who don't know, I am obsessed with everything Fall. From the fashion, to the holidays, to the recipes, to the weather, I just love it all. One of the most beautiful things about fall are the maroon and deep red colors, which happen to be all over the fall 2012 fashion trends. Since it is one of my favorite colors and one of my favorite seasons, I put together a little collage of ways to incorporate this gorgeous color into your style. I found most of these while browsing the internet and fell in love. Enjoy!

What I'm Loving: Dark Lips for Fall

Although a nude lip is my signature, I must say the super dark lip color has been catching my eye and if you follow me on Instagram (AnitasWorld) you probably already know this. I'm not sure if it's all this October Halloween spirit or just the edginess of this bold fall look but let me tell you, I'm all about this makeup do. Not only does the dark vampire esque lip give a sexy mysterious feel but it's so easy to achieve! All you need is a dark lip color and some mascara and you'll be making a total fashion statement. This is the perfect look for fall and a fun way to spice up your look by feeling like a total rebel. 
Would you rock it?

Fun Corky Curls: Nume Reverse Curling Wand!

Hi dolls, so I recently decided to get the Nume reverse wand which I've seen around the beauty community and been curious to try for a while. As you can see in the picture, the curling wand starts off thick at the top and becomes skinner at the bottom which gives a unique curl that can be styled so many different ways. I tried it out a few times and I love it! As you can see, I decided to get the pink one although I had trouble choosing between that, the zebra print, or a solid black color but pink is totally for me. Here's a picture of the type of curls the reverse wand gave my hair in just a couple of minutes. I must say, I'm definitely glad I got this, and my curiosity has been put to rest! Reverse wand, I'm glad I found you!

VMA's 2012 Fashion & Best Moments

First, let me start off by saying Kevin Hart For President! I seriously loved him before, but after the award show I love him even more. He was one of my favorite hosts yet, always makes it fun and actually makes me laugh. Also, I loved his fashion, anybody see that cheetah blazer? Um...hello, can you say genius? Anyways, there were so many great moments and performances this year. Also a handful of awkward moments which I was tweeting about throughout the live show so if you follow me on twitter you already know what I'm talking about.

New Katy Perry Official Music Video : Wide Awake Makeup Tutorial

Katy Perry recently came out with a brand new music video trailer / teaser to Wide Awake and today Perez Hilton showed the official music video which I absolutely love. Not only is the song one of the most played on my current playlist, but after seeing the music video I fell in love with Katy Perry's look and style. The look consisted of deep red vampire esq. lips and sexy, sultry dark brown smokey eyes. Katy Perry is an inspiration in her fashion, makeup, hair, talents, and is never afraid to try something unique and different so I figured it would be fun to recreate it and try something different as well. For her hair in her music video, it is curled and purple with a deep middle part and bangs twisted back (if you would like me to do a hair tutorial minus the purple let me know). I had a great time editing and filming this to be inspired by the beautiful Katy Perry's Official Music Video: Wide Awake and hope you guys enjoy it. xo

Kourtney Kardashian Inspired Blue Blazer Outfit Look For Less

I recently saw Kourtney Kardashian sporting a trendy bright royal blue blazer with black leggings and black thigh high boots and couldn't help but put together an similar Kardashian inspired outfit of the day / outfit of the night look for less video. This summer, as well as any season / time of the year blazers are always a fun way to dress up a look and royal blue is the perfect pop of color. As seen in my previous post, it is a huge trend right now during this Summer season and will probably continue on no matter what time of the year it is. Here is the video: Hope you all enjoy! <3

Fashion Do: Bright Pink, Yellow, and Orange Neon Blazers

Blazers have always been a go to fashion item of mine but once Spring and Summer rolls around it's harder to keep them looking up to par for the season. Well, now you can by just brightening them up! Just like changing up you're nail color, hair color, and wardrobe to brighter colors during the onset of these sunny seasons, you can also brighten up a statement piece such as a blazer. The look is so simple yet gives off such a fashionable season statement as well as a pop of color. Personally, I have made it a mission to own ever bright colored blazer in the book (which I seem to have done except for purple which I have yet to see) but that's probably just because I'm so blazer obsessed!:P  Check out the bright blazer trend below!



Michelle Obama, Kim Kardashian & Giuliana Rancic all look amaze and seem to be fans of the look too!

Nicki Minaj "StarShips" Music Video Makeup Tutorial

As we all know Nicki Minaj is known for her fun daring sense of fashion, and in her new music video "Starships" theres actually a scene where she's...wait for it...in a normal bathing suit?! Yup, that's something I've never seen in one of her videos before and the girl looked just as great! I'm usually used to the large broad shouldered jackets, multicolored jump suits, and bright colored candy dresses with the bright eye makeup and lipstick shades to match. But this time her look was pretty wearable except for the bright yellow/green hair but hey, it works for her and that's why we love her! This look really inspired me to do a makeup tutorial and I was excited because I've never done a look inspired by her before so here you have it: a transformed everyday wearable look with a winged flair liner, pink blush, and some mid nude pink lips to match.

Urban Decay Naked Palette: Half Baked
Maybelline Line Stiletto liquid liner: black

Spring 2012 Trend Alert: Sport Couture

So this year at New York's Fashion Week a whole new level of sports wear was "sported'. Say hello to Sport Couture. High end sporty pieces mixed with low or high heels. I'm all about sportswear but mixing it with couture fashion is something I've never tried or thought about so it was interesting looking at different versions of this trend as seen in variations down below.
What do you guys think of this new Trend? I'm still not so sure but it sure is an interesting concept!

How To Get Through Midterms & Finals : My Study Guide Tips & Tricks

Whether you're in College, Highschool, or Grad School we all have to face the stress of Midterms & Finals. To me, Midterms and Finals are both equally dreadful but to help make it easier I came up with a few of my tips and tricks on getting through this demanding time.


1. Set a schedule / game plan. It's common to be taking more than one class which usually means having to study for more than one midterm. Make a schedule of when each test is scheduled to determine the order of classes you should study for first. I like to study my classes in order so I am not overwhelmed by mixing and matching classes and information.

2. Organize. If you haven't done so already, make a folder of all the things you need to study for that specific class. I like to make sure I have at least two pockets; one for handouts, and the other for important notes.

3. Don't be afraid to snack. I'm not saying over indulge on candy and pizza but keeping a snack with a good source of whole grain carbohydrates and sugar can help stimulate the mind. (I learned this in my nutrition class and it has helped me ever since). In order for our brain to function we need a good sources of carbohydrates and whenever we start to lose focus a boost of it can really do the trick.


4. Take Timed Breaks. I'm not going to lie, the second I decide to take a break it usually lasts a couple of hours, sometimes the rest of the day! I learned the only way I wouldn't lose track of time was if I set an alarm. So start timing your breaks whether you feel you need 20 minutes or an hour, just plug it into your alarm clock so you'll know when your time is up.


5. Make an 'End of Midterms' Celebration. It's always good to have something to look forward too as a reward for all the hard work and hours you spent studying. So why not plan a celebration for the moment your midterms are over? Whether you plan a night out with your girls, a fun day at the beach, or a trip to your favorite ice cream spot, give yourself a treat! You'll definitely deserve it, plus you'll officially be on break! Yay!
What do you guys do to get through Midterm/ Finals? Feel free to leave a comment or share a tip / trick bellow :)

Grammy's 2012 Red Carpet Fashion: Top 3 'Stand Out' Looks

Just a couple days ago I watched one of my favorite award shows: The Grammy's! Every year I look forward to seeing some of the biggest names of music performing, winning awards, and of course showing off their favorite fashion looks on the red carpet. This year there were obviously many gorgeous looks but I decided to go with the top 3 that stood out to me the most which was; Carrie Underwood, Rihanna, and Fergie. All theses looks are very different but they all set a stunning statement in their own ways.
 Carrie Underwood had one one of the most beautiful dresses I've seen at the Grammys, it was a clean white color with embroidered sequins on tulle. The front was very sophisticated but once she showed off her back you could see that it definitely had a touch of sassiness. When it came to Rihanna and Fergie I was eager on what to expect since both of them are known to rock some hard to pull off pieces. Rihanna definitely had all eyes on her with the Armani sexy deep V and low cut backless dress, while Fergie probably had people doing double takes in that Jean Paul Gaultiere Couture vibrant red lace dress. I must say the color is what made me so drawn to it, and I can't imagine anybody else wearing it as well as her. As far as the jewelry, I thought all three had the perfect pairings to match.
What were your most stand out looks?

Miami Heat Game Floor Seats & Justin Bieber! 2012

My Nana's birthday was just the other day, and for those of you who didn't know she loves The Heat! It's so adorable because basketball is the only American game she really understands and enjoys watching (she's originally from Eastern Europe). Since she's never been to a game, as a birthday gift my family and I decided to all surprise her with tickets and take her to Miami where the games are held! It was the most amazing thing seeing her truly enjoy herself and watch her experience a game of her favorite team for the first time. We all got floor seats so she could really be upclose and personal throughout the whole game and she loved every second of it! Oh and did I mention I sat just a few feet away from JUSTIN BIEBER the whole time and didn't even realize until the end?! Only I wouldn't notice such a thing, it took people texting me saying they saw him sitting right by me for me to notice! lol Anyways, I put together a collage of my night. Enjoy :)
Q of the day: Do you guys remember your first big sporting game? If so what team and what was it like? Leave a comment below or tweet me your answer! xo

Gala at The Trump - Outfit of The Night

Hello honeys, so this past week I got invited to a beautiful charity gala event hosted at The Trump International. The night was absolutely beautiful and for a great cause which was fighting against children with Cancer. It was such a touching night, I got to meet a lot of wonderful people, and a lot of money was raised. I decided to do an Outfit of the night to show you what I was wearing including a lot of stunning jewelry which made me feel like a real princess! As Marilyn says diamonds are a girls best friend! But besides all the glitz and the glam, a good night to raise money for a great cause is always something I feel great about attending, especially when it means making such a big difference for the lives of those in need. Here are the pictures, and hope you guys enjoy!

Celeb Fashion: Kim Kardashian's Jeweled Headpiece

About three days ago Kim Kardashian was spotted in LA spicing up a simple outfit with a gold headpiece. I've noticed Khloe Kardashian wearing a similar one but with a bit more gems and usually with a maxi dress. However, Kim takes a more simple approach on this look by pairing the simple yet elegant headpiece with some blue jeans and a neutral sweater. 
What do you guys think? Would you spice up you're look with a headpiece?

Macedonian Christmas Eve! Hosted by Me :)

For most of you that didn't know, I am half Macedonian (located in Eastern Europe next to Greece) so it's normal in my family to celebrate American Christmas as well as Macedonian Christmas . It's basically the same thing as in America except on Christmas Eve dinner you have some fun traditions that differentiate it from how most people celebrate it here. First, one of my favorite traditions is baking a loaf of bread with a hidden coin inside. Who ever receives this coin at dinner wins 100 dollar bill (or however much the family is willing to give) for good wealth. Another tradition which is definitely interesting is each person at the dinner table and in the family puts their books (for education), business cards (for business), and wallets (for finance) under the table for a year of good business, education, and wealth. 
Of course there is a lot of food to be cooked (which you know I love to do!) the staple items are Filo (which is croissant type bread filled with rice, cabbage, and a hint of parsley), Fish (because no meat is aloud until Christmas Day), White beans, Cabbage, and Pasta. We usually have lots of family and friends over to celebrate (which we do most occasions) but this year was the first time I hosted it at my apartment. Everything turned out great so I couldn't be happier. 
Sreken Bozik!
