Hope in a Jar!!

philosophy:where there is hope there can be faith. where there is faith miracles can occur.

Hey guys,
I just wanted to fill you in on the new moisturizer that I've been using. As usual my skin care guru(My sister) told me about this product, and that I should give it a try. I've been using it for a couple weeks now and I love it. I'm sure everyone out there knows about this product, but it was new to me :)
So, I wanted to share it with you all :) If you're looking for a great moisturizer then I'd definitely look into 'hope in a jar', by philosophy!!!

I can't tell you how excited I am that Fall Fashion is among us!! It's so exciting to open a fashion magazine and already see the awesome trends that are coming to stores for Fall and Winter 2010. What's even more exciting is that there are a lot of trends that are repeats and a lot of them are fav's of mine :) Such as, 'boots' of allll kinds...'the must have, over-the-knee' boots are back :), booties, peep toe, fur and also the Military trend is sticking around. Also, you can still rock your blazer from this last season, it'll fit in perfectly with the 'Man-up/Suit' trend! I'm really excited to see the '70s making it's way into Fashion for Fall. I'm pretty much over the 80's!!! Anywho, here is a rundown of the hot trends to look for in your stores and to rock on the streets for Fall/Winter 2010!

*50's/60's Ladylike
The silhouettes of the 1950s and 1960s make a strong return, with shapes that accentuate curves think femininity. A hip-hugging sheath dress with a below-the-knee hem is the ultimate in hourglass dressing, while the full circle skirt and dress remain at the core of the trend  Full, below-the-knee circle skirts, cinched in waists, and prim, proper styling.

*Sophisticated '70s
This look is sure to see it's way into 2011, by day it's all about high waists, wide legs, soft blouses and '70s accessories. By night, all that shimmers is gold. Flowing, draping dresses in high-shine fabrics or metallic hues are perfect for evening '70s glamour. Be bold and don't hold back, this look is about balancing softness with boldness.

*Military Fashion
Yes, military remains a trend for Fall 2010 but not as you've previously come to know it. Military fashion as a trend is nothing new, But while fashion trends tend to burn out within a few years, the women's military fashion trend isn't going anywhere, though like all true fashion trends, the military trend will evolve. Military is now about functionality and utility. If the 18th and 19th centuries originally inspired women's military fashion, then it's true to say that in 2010 it's inspired by the military uniforms of the 20th century.

How to wear it Gold detailing and ornate trims set off slick military cuts. There are a number of different looks you can create - from rock to edgy-feminine to bohemian.

Rock: For the ultimate in rock chic, skinny pants or shiny leggings with a Military cut jacket. Wear with killer heels.
A military jacket can also be played up with a feminine touch. Think Ralph Lauren; a boxy, red military-inspired jacket paired with a floor-length
 dress. It's impractical, and it works.
Bohemian Luxe
Throw on a pair of over-the-knee fringed boots with skinny pants, boho prints, and a military jacket for a sexy bohemian look..

*Leather Clothing
Yes, it is on trend but it's hard to categorize. Leather works in with so many other trends and isn't a style unto itself. You'll wear it with military and you'll buy hot pants made out of it. The leather trend is extending into pretty much every other trend for the season. You name it, it'll be an option for your wardrobe in the colder months. Leather in 2010 can take the form of pretty much any item of clothing. If you can name it the odds are that someone's sent it down the runway in leather. Pants, skirts, shorts, coats, dresses, jackets, vests; they're all there

*Man-Up(Suits and Buttoned up Collars)
Menswear-inspired suiting and outerwear are key looks— 
Complimentary trends: Pair a buttoned-up shirt with leather pieces to keep the look firmly in modern, edgy territory. You can rock up a shirt by adding a leather biker or go for a crisp white shirt paired with a tan leather skirt. Work a strict buttoned up shirt into an on-trend military outfit. Pull on some knee high / over the knee socks. It will inject a sense of playful, girlish sexiness that's balanced out perfectly by your geek-chic high collar.

*Metallic Gold
Although silver was present in some designs on the runway, the main metallic color in most collections was gold. Add metallics to your own wardrobe by simply updating your style with some gold accessories, such as golden pumps, totes, belts, scarves or gloves. These trendy accessories will give you a punch of glamour. Metallic embellishment can jazz up any day or evening ensemble.

To get the best out of your metallic look, make sure to follow these final golden rules:
  • Be careful when selecting your metallic, you don’t want the material to look like you decided to get creative with your roll of aluminum foil. Shiny satin, lamé and glossy, high-tech fabrics look great in metallic.
  • Shimmer also has a tendency to accentuate bulges; if something looks wrong, don’t be afraid to simply walk away.
  • This fall’s metallic style looks great worn from head-to-toe or simply as a fun accessory. Have fun with this trend!

Fall 2010 revival of velvet presents some great new options for your wardrobe. How to wear it? You can go for a grunge girl look to the classically elegant starlet, the vintage-inspired girl to the masculine-as-feminine velvet clad woman... Quality is key, colours are rich, and it can work for everything from pants to dresses, handbags to hats.
Tips on wearing velvet: If you don't want to go all out on velvet clothing, don't forget that you can always inject a bit of velvet into your wardrobe by way of accessories. Headbands, bows, handbags or gloves are some prime examples.

MAC Cosmetics 'VENOMOUS VILLAINS' Collection

MAC Cosmetics unveils Disney-inspired Venomous Villains Collection for Fall 2010.

Here's makeup that's truly for the bad girl in you :) MAC Cosmetics has teamed up with Disney to create a devilish collection inspired by some of the most famous Disney Villains.
The Venomous Line (in stores Sept.2010) highlights our favorite animated villains, "Cruella De Vil from "101 Dalmations," Maleficent from "Sleeping Beauty," "Snow White's" Evil Queen and Doctor Faciller from "Princess and the Frog," are represented in blush, beauty powder, eye shadows, lipsticks and nail polish.

There are the light and dreamy shades such as “Oh so fair”, a pale pink beauty powder in the Evil Queen’s collection and “Innocence Beware” a taupe shade of lipstick with Cruella de Vil’s mean old mug adorning the packaging. And for the more adventurous, there are plenty of wild and wicked colors to be had. A nail lacquer inspired by Maleficent called “Mean & Green” is a swirl of gun-metal and purple-green that would compliments fall's gray color palette. And every villainess needs a blood-red lipstick. "Toxic Tale" matches Snow White's fateful fruit!!

Go ahead, pick your poison.

Get to know me beauty Tag!

I've been tagged by, to do this 'Get to know me, beauty tag' :) Thanks for tagging me sweetie!!!

* What's your Favorite Makeup Look???
Hmm, I usually stick to colors that best compliment my eye color, so pinks, golds, greens, purple!!! My fav look is shimmer shadows, a goldie shimmer look, and or smokey eyed look! :)
* What part of your Body do you Love??
I like my shoulders and my cheekbones!!!
* Who is your beauty Icon??
I can't say that I really have a 'Beauty Icon'! There are quite a few girls I look to in terms of fashion. Definitely, Gwen Stefani, The Dash Girls, Nicole Ritchie, Rachel Zoe, etc. I love to read Fashion Mags, so I get a lot of ideas and tips from them :)
* What Beauty Product makes you Feel instantly Good???
Umm, probably my concealer and powder, as soon as that's on I feel!!! Then other then that, eyeliner because I feel sooo naked without anything on my eyes, so eyeliner, mascara, OH and Self-Tanner when I have a self-tanner on I feel much better as well. I hate to look pasty white!! When I look tan, I feel much better about myself :)
* How do you look after your skin??
I wash my face w/ Neutrogena Acne Skin Solutions Face Scrub, then apply their Acne Control Lotion, then apply Philosophy's 'Hope in a jar' moisturizer all over my face, and SSC(Serious Skin Care) C-Eye Cream. That's my daily skin routine!!! I don't do a mask often enough. I definitely need to do them more!!!
* What is your Signature Scent!!??
My ALLLL time favorite scent it 'MISS DIOR CHERIE' by Christian Dior!!! OMG I want to bathe in it. I want to hook up lil sprayers in the vents in my house and have it pumping through at all!!! Seriously, you guys it's ammmaziing!!! I'm sooo sad because I'm out of it and have been for a while, and unfortunately its not cheap :( So, I usually only get it on special occasions :((( Other then that I LOVE Escada's Tropical Perfume line...'Marine Groove'..'Rockin Rio' ...'Sunset Heat' ...'Pacific Paradise'...those all smell amazing!!! And also at Victoria Secret I always wear their lotion in the 'Pure Seduction' all time fav :)
* What's your hair care secrets?
The one thing I do that I believe has really helped my hair is that I don't ever really put any heat on my hair. I only will use a curling iron ever so often, I NEVER use a flat iron!!! I always use Argan Oil mixed w/my conditioner as well as before I blow dry my hair, I use a leave in conditioner, Argan Oil, and TreSemme Heat Tamer Spray all before using the blow dryer and I use a defuser so the heat doesn't get too close to my hair!!!
* How do you pamper yourself?
Ummmmm,!!! I don't know. I've never gone to a salon or spa and gotten a facial or anything. I haven't had a professional massage in years!! Hmm..I guess ever so often I go and get a pedicure with my Mom and Sis. It's not very often I usually just paint my own toes and nails, but it's a nice treat to go have it done professionally :)
* Finally How do you have a Beauty Philosophy??
I don't really have a 'Philosophy'...Just that to me beauty comes from within!!! You can meet a GORGEOUS girlor guy, but if they're a mean/rude/bitchy/egotistical person then it makes them the ugliest person ever to me!!! So, I believe beauty comes from within, people who are sweet, sympathetic, kind-hearted, warm, giving and friendly are the most beautiful people in the world!!

I tag whoever wants to do this Tag!!!
