Prabal Gurung x Target

A new collaboration is upon us. Just in time for the lovely Valentine's Day season. The season of Love and the season of mass consumption of Champagne and chocolate (at least for myself). The Prabal Gurung for Target collection is absolutely lovely. I thought I wouldn't love anything more then the Jason Wu for Target but this is taking the cake. The colors, the cut of the clothes, the patterns, and most of all the accessories. I would be lying if I didn't say I already have my eye on two dresses, two pairs of shoes, and a clutch.

Lets swoon together.


 
 

Current Obsessions. 2/4/2013

It's still really weird type or even write "2013". While I am very happy about 2012 being over it still hasn't hit me that 2013 is here in the present.

back to our regularly scheduled program.

1. La Bello "Classic" Lip care. I was first introduced to this product while in Mexico in desperate need of some chapstick. While searching the local Farmacia I couldn't find my normal go to (Chapstick) and purchased this. Honestly I can never go back to normal chapstick after using this. Not only is it literally the best lip balm in the world it keeps your lips moisturized and completely hydrated. The only way to describe it is it's like putting a non fragrant lotion on your lips. Sadly they are not available in the US and the closet thing to this formula is Nivea lipbalms. Trust I stock up every time I'm in Mexico.

 
 
2. Organix "Coconut Milk Hibiscus" Lotion. I'm really weird when it comes to lotions. I either have to have a very low neutral scent or some very high powerful fruity scent. While browsing my local aisles at the CVS and since I love spending money I decided to give it ago. (Of course after smelling and testing it). Not only has my skin felt heavenly the smell isn't so overpowering. A must get if you are looking for something different. This does not have that sunblock smell that most coconut products have. It's actually rather light and refreshing. 

 
3. Lipstick by H&M. We know I'm a product junkie. We know I love to spend money. We know I probably shouldn't be spending money. Well in one of my many shopping sprees I found myself looking at the makeup products by H&M. I was skeptical at first. I tend to only trust products coming from drugstore like stores but I couldn't stop admiring the color of the lipstick. I went home and tried it and never looked back. The color holds more then regular drugstore products and the color doesn't fade after application or dry out. This holds the same appeal as the Rimmel for Kate Moss collection. Next time you are in H&M and find yourself looking at the lipsticks I recommend you purchase one. 


4. H&M spring look. I saw this look and loved it. Maybe just the simpleness of the same classic outfit but the color combos of black & white is timeless. I love the little crosses on the loose fitted blouse that gives a basic outfit a bit of an edge. Absolutely lovely. Also makes me want to recreate. SWOOON.

hit it.

In all the times I've gone on blogger I haven't even had a time to really talk about things going on in my life. I sort of just get irritated, angry, or just go on some rambling post about how I'm feeling but never about whats going on.

Shall I do that today?

Why not.

In the time that I fully recovered from November sadness, Holiday Smolidays and officially sobered up my early January. It's weird to even say January is over. I can't believe that it seems like only yesterday I was toasting away 2012 and slurring my way into 2013. Was it me or did January last a lifetime?

With no more sidetracks and just about enough time to renew myself, I have done just that. For the past couple of weeks I've done nothing but work toward this new beginning. Nothing but plan, prepare, and start introductions into movements I'll be making for the rest of my life. All it takes is one idea to change the course of your life and in that one idea that's all I have. So in stating that I started just taking one idea and morphing it into a couple of different ideas. I don't really know whats going to happen I just know that if January is any indication of whats to come then by all means I am ready.

In a few weeks I'm starting a new blog. I can't really describe it. Something different. I get tired with looking at peoples style blogs and always being bored with the same thing. The same person, the same stance, the same boring thing. I hope I can change that. I hope some how I can find the passion I used to have when I picked up my camera the way I did when I was 12 to the way I did when I was 23.  Maybe in a way it's my own personal social experiment. Just to see if in one year finding what is it that really makes me happy.

Still not ready for a relationship. Still not ready to jump into any commitments. I just know that I want to find life in people, places, and things. Then in a few months I will be out of the country and into a completely different atmosphere. Something familiar but completely different then my day to day life.

Something.

Anything.

Then everything in between.
