Recent Loves!

Hello lovelies, first I want to apologize for being gone for so long, but I am back! Here are just some random things I have been loving lately:
I have been obsessed with my tumbler from Starbucks lately because it is so perfect for smoothies and juices in the morning.  I also feel as though I drink more water when I am drinking out of the tumbler, because it is just so fun!

Yoga Pants
Yoga pants are definitely the They are just so comfy and flattering on every figure!  Enough said...

In the winter, I never have to debate on which shoes I am going to wear, because it is always my tall grey uggs! they are super comfortable and they go with everything!

That all for now! Until next time...

So Sorry!

Hey Guys its Claudia!
So sorry for our absence lately. Sophie and I go on break this coming week and school is pretty hectic with all the preparations for break, getting projects done, etc. But I promise over break I have a few posts lined up! Really excited to share my favorite products and trends of 2011 with you guys! I decided quickly to name a few things im loving...
1. Yummy Perfumes, like Burberry Brit, Miss Dior Cherie, Aqualina Pink Sugar, Marc Jacobs Daisy...(haha can you not tell I just tried them all on at Sephora today?)
2. Bath and Body Works holiday candles...yum! I love the vanilla scents and the Winter Wonderland scent! Make sure to pick yours up soon currently they are on sale 2 for $20!
3. Scarves and sweaters♥ I recently found a gorgeous pullover in the sale section of Anthropologie and it is a cream color. Pretty much any cream color I have such as my recent Anthropologie purchase, a vintage sweater picked up a few weeks ago and an oversized Urban Outfitters cardi have been constantly worn by me lately with scarves!
4. Knit hair bows! I love to knit and have recently been making a bunch. Heres a preview...
Comment below if I should do a tutorial, they are really easy to make!
5. Florence + The Machine, The Naked & Famous, MGMT. All have been loves of mine for sooo long but instead of listening to their newer music I have been going back and listening to some oldies of theirs. Oh and Backstreet Boys...haha awkward.

Those are the 5 things you need to know!
Ill be posting soon! Have a great weekend!
Love, Claudia

My Top Winter Nail Polish!

   Hey guys! So today I am going to be showing you my top winter nail polish! I don't think you guys know this, but I am completely obsessed with nail polish.  Its kinda bad...but hey, its all good :) I do have a lot to show, but I just couldn't take any out and know that this is the narrowed version! So lets get started...


I think classic red is absolutely gorgeous for the winter time, so I have a good mix of hues.  1) The first is a bright red with tiny shimmers in it. 2) This is a creme strawberry color with a bit of orangey hues in it. 3) This is my fav! Its a deep creamy plum. 

2) OPI 20 Candles on my Cake

3) OPI  Oh..To be 25 Again!

1) OPI Red *looks different in photo
I am obsessed with nudes in the fall and winter! 4)The first is my fav: also known as the Sophie color! It is a grayish purple color and is amazing. 5) This is a cement color that looks really pretty on.6 ) This is a shimmery champagne color that is really unique.
4) Sephora by OPI Metro Chic

5) SPARitual Mystic *can find at JUUT salon

6) Essie Buy me a Cameo

Dark nail polish is hard to wear in the summer, but in winter, it is easy to pull. 7) A shimmer black polish with chunky rainbow multi-shape glitter. 8) This is a black with silver shimmer, turning it into a gunmetal shade.

7) Sephora by OPI 212-Sephora

8) Forever 21 black/silver


I think greens and blues work very nicely in the winter. 9) This is a shimmer emerald green that is sheer but build able. 10) This is a royal blue with purple reflex.

9) NYC Big Money

I hope this helped you guys for when you are shopping for nail polish this season! Tell me your fav winter polish below! Until Next Time...
