Girls are taught a lot of stuff growing up. Every movie we see, Every story we're told implores us to wait for it, the third act twist, the unexpected declaration of love, the exception to the rule. But sometimes we're so focused on finding our happy ending we don't learn how to read the signs.

CHANEL Jade Nail Polish

I am obsessed with nails and hands. I am in love with this Jade pastel color, it's beautiful. I never had green nails but this is a must for fall. It's going to be released in October and of course, it will be a limited edition. It was debuted at the Chanel Fall '09 fashion show. Last fall, I was obsessed with the Blue Stain, Kaleidoscope, and Vendetta. This is a must-have if you're obsessed with keeping up with nail trends.

Take It All By Adele

Saw Adele perform "Take It All" off her new upcoming album at the Hollywood Bowl in June. I can't believe I saw her live, she was beyond amazing. Her voice sounds exactly the same as her album.

Travel Necessities

L' Occitane
Lavender Harvest Hand Cream 2.6oz
Shampoo Serious Volumizing Shampoo

Minted Rose Lip Balm


(the lip scrub is amazing, works wonders!)

Shea Butter Foot Cream

(The best foot cream in the entire world)
Perfect V-Neck
(I love this color and the white tee's)

I'm going home tomorrow for the first time since I've moved back to L.A. And I realized since I brought everything with me, I have to pack my necessities! Don't ever let me walk into Sephora because I will walk out with a bag filled with goodies. Those GAP v-necks are all-year round for me, they fit perfect. The cotton is so soft on my skin and it's breathable unlike American Apparel. I'm starting my little collection, so far I own five. :) I'm also in love with T by Alexander Wang, they are loose fitting tee's. Which I love for my bum days!

What I'm Looking Forward To

I've been ridiculously busy and stressed out with a whole bunch of B.S. I feel like I've grown up in a few months, weeks, even days. I'm learning while I'm struggling and trying my best to find the best solution for my parents and I. I never thought searching for an apartment can be so difficult; especially in Los Angeles when in 2007 it was so easy when I moved there two weeks after graduating from high school. That's why I haven't put the effort into blogging as I was determined to when I first started it in November. So, I apologize for not updating but I'm back for good.

Any who, April should be a very good interesting month for me. My 20th birthday is coming up, which I'm so stoked for... I'm not sure about going to New York City now because I want am going to London to see Michael Jackson LIVE for the first night of his "This Is It" tour. I'd rather save my pennies for London than going to NYC again within five months. I might see Britney Spear's "Cirus" concert in L.A on my birthday, April 17th. Have you seen those videos from her tour? Badass, I don't care if she's lip-synching; she's dope. I'll also be relocating back to L.A to complete my school in Southern California by the end of this month or early April. I'm looking forward to returning, it should be a good year for me. 

Oh yeah! I forgot to mention. The Italian designer Valentino and his long-time business partner and love have been taping "The Last Emperor" for nearly two years. Once you watch the trailer, you'd be blown away how he's so hands on with his pieces. It's pretty fascinating to see an older designer being so focused on his collections like if it was his first. Check their website out to see when it'll be coming to a major city near you!

P.S. I've been running in 5" heels since 9AM... I don't think my doctor would be happy with this. lol

All I Want for My Birthday Is: Britney Spears

I think April 17th, 2009 was added to her Circus Tour for a reason... because it's my birthday that day!(It wasn't added until recently) I wanted to attend her show but tickets sold out too fast and I don't attend shows unless I have good seating. After watching this clip of her rehearsing, I'm really thinking about attending her show and NOT going to New York City for my birthday weekend. Coachella? It's out of my plans. Their line-up isn't impressive now.

Charles, I'd love you x10 more if you can get me some tickets. :)

Alexander McQueen is At Target Near You

Target gave us Johnathan Sauders, Richard Chai, Thakoon, Proenza Schouler, and Alexander McQueen! I was hyped about Thakoon's collection but from what I've seen from this upcoming collection made me save every single penny of mine. I'm sure this collection will sell out fast so make sure to get your hands on some items!

More information on prices and what's going to available, click here.

Storytellers: Kanye West MP3's

Who didn't love how he mixed the new songs? Well, click here to download the live performances. "Love Lockdown" wasn't shown on television but it was probably the best performance! These songs are a must-have for any Kanye West fan. Too bad, "Go Hard", "Paranoid" and "Street Lights" weren't televised. Those were my favorite performances. Enjoy!

Top Models

The soon-to-be "It Girl" of 2009, Arlenis Sosa. I remember writing about her in late November and now she was all over New York Fashion Week 2009 and I'm sure she's booked for the entire year. Oscar de La Renta considers her his muse and took her under his wing. Not to mention, her advertisements for Lancome were simply beautiful! Her accent makes her even more adorable.

Another model whose rising to the top is Sessilee Lopez! She was on the cover of Italian Vogue's All Black Issue. Also rumored to be dating Kanye West late last year because of this "Flashing Lights" video. She's all over your local GAP store, too. The reason I had to also write about her because I love her new advertisement pages for the Vogue Nippon Issue and guess what it's called? FLASHING LIGHTS!

What's "Too Dubai"?

Wall Street Journal recently interviewed Anna Wintour and the interview is pretty interesting. She talks about how fashion has changed and what's in now days. She also mentions that Vogue's ad's might include more affordable clothing and accessories! I agree to that, I'd like to see more clothing that I'm able to go out and purchase.

Anna Wintour "at Condé Nast's midtown Manhattan headquarters and discussed why "value" is in and "too Dubai" is out."

The Perfect Rainboots

I decided to share my little secret...after receiving tons of compliments on my London Fog Patent Leather Boots! I actually bought these for New York City when I went in October due to the raining weather. I only used them once there and just put them to use recently since it's been pouring in Cali. I always wanted the perfect rain boots and some that weren't colorful. I've been having my eyes on these Burberry ones but I'm not going to spend over $300 on boots I'm only going to wear a few days out of the year. Piperlime is my best friend when it comes to shoes, their selections are the best. They also have great sales and customer service. Plus, these were Rachel Zoe's favorite! I admit that I'm sooooooooo jealous that the price went down from $130 to $59. But this is your chance to get your hands on them!

A Free Fashion Show

That what I love about the Oscar arrivals is the fashion, of course! This year I was blown away by the choices, they improved A LOT. My favorite was Sarah Jessica Park's Christian Dior Haute Couture dress, it was very fairly tale-ish. But it was beautiful, the color and beading was perfect. It wasn't too much and her hair was simple. Very Carrie Bradshaw!

#2. Taraji P. Henson - Roberto Cavalli
3. Halle Berry - Marchesa
4. Angelina Jolie - Elie Saab
5. Anne Hathaway - Armani Prive
6. Kate Winslet - Yves Saint Laurent

Meet Nicole Richie in L.A

I am so excited for this! I'm hoping I can get my hand on a ticket to meet her! I've always loved her since she got super thin because that's when she became so fashion forward. I love her jewerly line "House of Harlow 1960". If I had tons of money, I'd buy it all but sadly I don't at the moment. I've been eying this ring for a good while and I think it's the perfect time to buy it!
It's also available online and it's only $38! It's really big, not your average ring... But it's hawt!

Let me know if your going!

NEW Kanye

Here are two new songs featuring Kanye and their sooooo good! I can already see "Walking On The Moon" as the #1 song on the charts!

GLC featuring Kanye West & T-Pain - Flight Club
The Dream featuring Kanye West - Walking On The Moon

Kanye will be featured on March 2009's Details Issue. He's interview is quite impressive, ver y detailed. It will hit stands on 2/24/09.

On using “gay” as a compliment: “Titles are very important. I like to embody titles, y’know, or words that have negative connotations, and explain why that’s good,” he says. “Take the word gay—like, in hip-hop, that’s a negative thing, right? But in the past two, three years, all the gay people I’ve encountered have been, like, really, really, extremely dope. Y’know, I haven’t, like, gone to a gay bar, nor do I ever plan to. But where I would talk to a gay person—the conversation would be mostly around, like, art or design—it’d be really dope. From a design standpoint, kids’ll say, ‘Dude, those pants are gay.’ But if it’s, like, good, good, good fashion-level, design-level stuff, where it’s on a higher level than the average commercial design stuff, it’s, like, gay people that do that. I think that should be said as a compliment. Like, ‘Dude, that’s so good it’s almost . . . gay.’”

Christian Siriano for Payless Shoes - Collection Fall '09

Christian Siriano and Payless got together to work on a fierce shoe and handbag collection for fall 2009. The collection of pump heels and booties ranges in between $20 to $45. The spiky pairs look slightly similar to the Christian Louboutin for Rodarte shoes that Victoria Beckham has seen wearing. I’m definitely going to buy them all! I love Payless Designer Collections. What are your thoughts on the collection? Is this a good opportunity for Christian Siriano to show off his shoes and accessories creativity?

Such A Good Influence

Every morning when I wake up, I look at the pictures of this book and it really helps me become more motivated towards my dreams. To look at their fabulous, fortune life and be able to socialize with fashion legends such as Karl Lagerfeld and Diane Von Fustenburg, it's pretty awesome to see how they really are through a book. It feels like you were there when the interview took place. Your also able to see how they get inspired for their great fashion sense. For those who haven't seen it or read it, you should check it out. It's a great visual and text book.

Oscar de La Renta RTW Fall '09

Anyone who knows me knows that I'm a huge Oscar de La Renta fan. He's an icon to me. He's a Hispanic who worked hard to be recognized in the industry and he's one of the few who still actually sketches his own designs. I loved his Ready To Wear Fall 2009 collection, it reminded me of old classic movies. None of the dresses were short and there wasn't that much skin being revealed. I loved seeing the new textures used for this collection, the bubble skirts, the pleats, and full sleeves on the arms. I really liked the tights with the dresses because that's always in for a day and night look. He combined the colors so nicely! I really love how he's able to emphasize a woman's body so perfectly. I know models do not have much of a shape but I can see his clothing on a woman with curves and it'll look amazing! I love the big hair on the models, it makes it look very modern. I love it all. I hope one day I'll be able to attend one of his fashion shows and have an actual conversation with him!

Ricardo, can you please make it happen?

Sessilee Lopez looking pretty backstage before the show! And did you notice Oscar de La Renta's muse? It's Arlenis Sosa!
