Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2014: Watch What To Look Out For! Ariana Grande, Adriana Lima, Taylor Swift.
Victoria's Secret Fashion Shows are always my absolute favorite! This year, it looks like it will be better than ever with the fun stage set ups, gorgeous new collections, amazing performers, and of course our favorite models! After doing some research and getting the inside scoop on the event that took place last night in London, there are definitely some things to look forward to when it airs in a few days! First we'll talk about Ariana Grande. One of my favorite artists at the moment, I couldn't be more excited to see her perform at such a signature event! Although, if you haven't seen the gossip blogs by now it looks like there was a little mishap where she gets hit in the face by a Victoria's Secret Angel Wing while performing 'Bang Bang'. However, in Ariana Grande fashion she pulls it off by being cute and funny about it. Next two of my favorite models Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio walk the runway side by side while Ed Sheeran performs in gorgeous matching yet opposite pieces covered in blue and red gems. Another thing I'm looking forward to is Taylor Swift's performance of 'Blank Space' which as we know by her last performance at the VS Fashion Show it will be amazing. Oh and is it just me, or does she totally fit in with all the models? Talk about Gorgeous. This show will definitely be an unforgettable one.

Anyone who knows me knows some of my favorite things include: Family, Cooking, Eating, Being Grateful, Decorating, & Football which all equates to Thanksgiving! That is why Thanksgiving is one of my Favorite Holidays! I love knowing the whole day is going to be filled with cooking, laughter, decorating, eating, catching up with family, watching football (for me at least lol), expressing what everyone is thankful for, and looking forward to what's to come in the last few weeks before the new year. With that said, we usually do Thanksgiving at my house but I know a lot of people spend it many different places which is why I thought I would put together some cute outfit inspirations that can go for any Thanksgiving situation and keep in mind the outfits should be nice and loose for total stuffing our face comfort ;) Whether you are spending it at your house with your family, going over to a friends, meeting up with your boyfriends family, or just keeping it super casual, these outfits can all be for you! Hope you get inspired and have a great Turkey Day!
One of my favorite looks for thanksgiving is starting with the a creme colored dress that has a feminine flare of detailing such as a ruffled bottom and in this case see through lines then pairing it with some cozy black tights and dressing it down with a knit scarf and casual jacket.
The second look seen above is completely my style. From a cute skirt with some wine colored knee high socks and matching scarf paired with a tucked in edgy white t shirt and beige jacket. I love looks like this because they show off my clash of style and keeps it just the right amount of casual and trendy.
These last two photos I found on Pinterest display the perfect Thanksgiving opposites. On the left you have a more flirty dressed up look that can be great for meeting up with your "thanksgiving date" with a flared out mini skirt, slightly sheer tights, a wine colored cropped sweater and booties you will definitely give off a sexy yet thanksgiving appropriate look. On the right you have a super casual look that's great for a chill Thanksgiving night with a grey sweater, some leggings, knit knee high socks and some boots but don't forget a pop of color with a turquoise necklace. This is great for being laid back and cute!
Hope you guys enjoy and I'm so Thankful for ALL of you!!

Hii Lovies! So, I've been thinking about a few things lately and thought it would be a positive thing to share. As most of us agree; makeup, fashion, hairstyles, and playing with our looks can be so much fun! It's something I myself, as well as most of you enjoy doing and find exciting. However, I notice many times we can forget that the art of having fun with our looks isn't to cover our true selves up, but to enhance what represents us! Let style be less than just a trend and more about what makes you feel good, comfortable, and beautiful! This goes for Makeup as well. We DO NOT NEED Makeup and so many girls I see now a days forget that. Yes, it is a form of art and one that I enjoy, but I want everyone to remember you are just as, if not more, beautiful without it! Same goes with hairstyles. Take me for example, I have naturally curly dark hair. Although I do like straightening it and highlighting it for a change, I always end up going back to my natural color and curls. Honestly, that is when I feel the most beautiful. No Makeup, Natural Curls, a simple White T-Shirt and some boy shorts or sweats. These are the moments I feel not only beautiful, but pure! What I'm trying to get across is: Do Not Forget how beautiful you are beneath the whole fashion and beauty side you enjoy. It's such a inspiring thing to love who you are without all of it as well, and I promise you once you realize and truly believe you don't need any of it, re-incorporating it into your looks will empower you like never before! I love you all so much and wish everyone beautiful thoughts <3

In honor of National Coffee Day I figured, since I'm not a huge coffee drinker why not go to Starbucks and pick up a little treat instead to still celebrate? I found the cutest signature Starbucks inspired cup and am so excited to use it! Now, speaking of coffee...I LOVE the tastes and flavors but it always makes me so jittery which is why I don't drink it! Anyone know any cures? Thanks Lovies xoxoxo - Anita Samantha

Hello Dolls, If you haven't noticed either through my videos or photos or for any of you who have seen me in person... I've been ALL about creme colored nails and haven't been afraid to add a little unique flare. Besides loving my nudes and creme colors, I have been going bath and forth with the nail shape I like the best. This goes for all colors, shape is so important! I've been mainly sticking to the square, or medium length almond shaped. What do you think? Which one do you like best?
Almond Shaped Nails
Oval with Square End Nails
Sharp Square Nails
What's your fave? xoxo - Anita

Taylor Swift's New Song 'Shake It Off' has been stuck in my head since the second I heard it (Which is usually what happens when I listen to her songs) and once I saw the Music Video and Outtakes I couldn't help but get excited to film another Taylor Swift inspired Makeup Tutorial! Not only did she look gorgeous (especially with her new hair cut) But she had a lot of beautiful Makeup Looks in this hot new Music Video as well! I chose the one I felt would look great on everybody which is a Taylor Swift classic red lip topped with some gold eyeshadow and a flawless matte face! It was seen in the scenes with her black turtle neck as she danced around as well as a bit in her cheerleader uniform. I love this look and not only is it fast and easy but it is a total Taylor Swift statement! Enjoy xx

Ariana Grande looked gorgeous last night at the VMAS 2014 rocking her signature style - a natural brown smokey eye, dark nude lips, and her half up do hairstyle that she's been trendsetting worldwide. I decided to make a Makeup Tutorial Video the first time I saw this look in her Problem music video, and ever since it seems like it is her go to look and I'm loving it! I've posted my Ariana Grande Signature Makeup & Hair Tutorial video below. Click the link to view on Youtube or just view on my page below. Enjoy :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OJxsQtNGoOk&list=UUIajNYPkeq4hQWeBPZU-RKQ

Summer is one of those seasons where you can wear as many bright colors as you want while getting away with it, and I love that! That's why I've been all about a bright pink lip to add a little summer splash to my face ;) Usually I'm all about the nudes, but if you have some place to go and don't feel like doing your makeup all you need with these lips is a swab of mascara and your lips will do all the talking, literally!
A Few of my Pink Lipstick Fave:
Yves Saint Laurent - Rouge Volupte lipstick
Nars - Schiap lipstick
Revlon - Fuchsia lipstick
What are your favorite pink lipsticks?

Summertime is one of those seasons where clothes are limiting due to the hot summer sun, but doesn't mean you still can't make some fun statements! Although trends may change, the types I wear the most never seem to go out of style! Here are a few of my Go To Summer Styles that sum up what I wear during summer!
1. Bright Maxi Skirts & Tank Crop Tops
Not only are Maxi Skirts comfy, they're also fun! Pair a bright color with a sexy neutral crop top and some arm candy and you're good to go!
2. Arm Candy!
With this much skin showing why not take advantage of jewelry that can go all the way up the arm and add an island flare?
3. Airy Pastels & Wedges!
Not only are these colors pretty and light but they are also airy! Pair some Pastel pink shorts with a simple white airy top and add a pop of color with some turquoise and of course some cute wedge heels!
& There you have it the My Top 3 Summer Styles that will never get old! What are yours?

I came across this quote the other day and it reminded me, days are meant to be happy! Which is why, you should never let a day go by without doing something you absolutely LOVE! I've came to the conclusion something that honestly makes my heart sing (besides helping others) is inspiring others! Which is why I have decided that I am going to start taking not only my YouTube Channel, but this blog much more seriously. I know I've been such a slacker in posting things but to spare all the excuses, I honestly have realized why not use this perfect platform to express my thoughts through writing and photos? This is only the beginning...
I was just going through some of my Videos and saw my Monthly Favorites! Things I've mentioned in this video are still my fave! & I'm actually wearing my pink juicy slippers (mentioned in the video) as I'm typing this ;-) What can I say, Some things you just can't stop loving!

Yesterday was a typical Sunday filled with laziness, a lot of sofa action with me and a plush blanket accompanied with some rain. As I was flipping through channels I noticed Mean Girls playing on MTV! I started thinking to myself, like most of us do, Omg I must've seen this movie 100000x but I still want to watch it again! I thought to myself, "I wonder how long it's been since it came out..." so I decided to use my trusty google app and I noticed.. WOW IT CAME OUT IN 2004!! 10 freaking years ago!! I literally feel like I saw it for the first time just yesterday, and now 10 years later 100000x of watching it later, it's still a hit! That's when I realized Mean Girls really is a classic! For all my ladies out there, I know I'm not alone here! Would you consider it a classic? Thoughts? Just curious....xoxo
