Homemade Vintage Cuban Poster's for sale

I have noticed that many readers look at my homemade vintage Cuban poster post that I did a few years ago for my birthday. Hmm I wonder, are there alot of us Americans that would love to go to Cuba? One of my friends is going to Cuba the day after Halloween, so so jealous! I'm dedicating this post to his trip.
Also I was wondering, would anyone be interested in purchasing a print of my version of the Cuban posters? If so leave a comment or email me. My versions are on the left hand side.

Fantastic Fall Hairstyles

Fall is all about plaids, fur, corduroy, leather, tights, boots and your hair. I have been trying to grow my hair out again since I went crazy and pulled a Britney last winter. Well I didnt shave my head, I cut my hair pretty short. Now my dilemma is I have to wear it up at work ughh, can never win.
However, when Im not at work I want to take full advantage of looking cute because I have cute clothes and if I take a bit more time doing my hair and makeup I feel more confident and have a better day.
So without further ado I present some fantastic fall hairstyles to try this season. Im a big Natalie Portman fan, and Im a fan of her shiny headband that shows off her beautiful face. Just curl your hair, put it in a high, loose bun and slip on a headband, easy.









Next is the ass kicking Sarah Michelle Gellar, who has always been to me, a rebellious edgy girl that has a really feminine side to her. I like her best with blonde hair and it looks great straightened with a middle part. Im sure…

Crazy

This is how I feel right now, dont cross my bad side...haha not really, but really Im so underslept and overworked I feel a bit crazy this morning.

Trina Turk & Jonathan Skow's 25th Wedding Anniversary

To me Trina is like the really cool Aunt I never had, she just has a life and style that I think is really passionate, creative and she seemed to work really hard to get everything she has. There aren't many celeb's/designer women that I look up to besides her and

Gwen Stefani. I understand that now they must be rich and have lots of help and all, but they weren't always privileged. It just shows that if you really want something you will find a way to get there in life.

I really enjoyed reading this post by Trina Turk and it was just really inspiring to see that she and her husband are real people and that she has seen so many cool places and grown into a famous designer alongside her husband.
Trina Turk is one of my fav designers and I loved reading her blog. She shared a few private photos in honor of her 25th wedding anniversary with husband Jonathan Skow. Together they make a great couple.

Latest Obsessions

Call me crazy but Im obsessed with leggings and for the longest time I wouldn't wear them in fear that I had a body type that couldn't pull it off. See Im a pear shape and I have these rules in my head about what Im supposed to be wearing, screw them rules. My other obsession right now is anything grey be it striped, sweaters, tanks whatever. Im dressing kind of neutral lately and wearing alot of black which is not my usual style, but hey it works when you want to get ready fast. And I just cant get enough of the hoop earrings, they're easy to wear and all of a sudden make an outfit a bit edgier without even trying. My other obsessions are of the foodie type. Once it started to rain here in SO-CAL I busted out the triple grande nonfat peppermint white mocha. It just sounded like the right kind of thing to make me feel warm inside. Next on my list is vitamin 5-6, which my drafting instructor told me to try. She told me it would help with my energy and anxiety since Im kinda…

Hershey's Pumpkin Spice Kisses

Lets just say... I bought these for my family and they were all gone in 2 days... I bought a new bag and brought it work where I may or may not sell the Pumpkin Spice Latte and everyone loved them. I highly recommend these P.S. candies.

My Halloween Costume 2010

black swan by Mslay featuring platform sandals shoes
Im begining to realize the best part of Halloween for me is the never ending hunt for the perfect DIY costume! This year Im dressing up as The Black Swan from the new Natalie Portman film coming out this December. Pretty much everything I bought was on clearance, from a thrift store or the 99 cent store. Fore example: The very first item I bought was the feather tube dress on clearance from Forever 21 for $19.00 Second I went to the 99cent store and bought a Tiara and black gloves with silver claws glued on for $2.00 Third I bought pleather pink bow tie booties from JC penny for $4.95 Fourth went to Buffalo exchange and picked up a feather boa as well as feather lashes for $13.00 Fifth I bought white leggings and makeup from Target for $6.99
Pretty much everything I bought can be used again for other outfits and costumes as well.
What are you dressing up as this year?
