#TBT Remember those Stan Smiths?

Remember seeing everyone and their mother wearing these? Lol Also remember my research in my previous post when they first got hot? Just found these for $30! (Ask me where!!)

Adidas, $75
Adidas, $75

Right when I was about to purchase a pair I started seeing way too many people wearing them do I refused to get them as well lol…if you didn’t get them either you may be happy to know that there are other cool Adidas sneakers that are just as great or even better at great prices! These also don’t just come in green they are also made in black and red!

Below are a few pairs that to me, in some ways resemble the same style (from highest to lowest):

Gucci Web-Strip Trainers, $294
Adidas "Gazelle" $100
Adidas “Gazelle” $100
Adidas "Superstar" $100

#MM BareMinerals Gen Nude

image

What I absolutely love from this collection is that it includes nudes in all different finishes; my known favorite – matte liquid lipsticks (20), also in radiant lipstick (20), butter cream lip gloss (15), and of course let us not forget about the lip liner (5)! (The numbers in parenthesis is how many shades each collection has)

With all these choices I think it is impossible not to find your perfect, go-to nude! I have to invest in one or even a few of these lippies. Click HERE to make them your own. What about you ladies? I know that some may be hesitant without trying it for yourself first, so I recommend that you go to your nearest Ulta (they also offer mini ones as free gift!) or Sephora store! They have a section dedicated to BareMinerals!

#TBT Neeeed: Those Clear Shoes & Booties!

Yes I “Neeeed” those clear booties that I have been seeing around on IG! Have you seen them?!?!

NEEED

I just need to make them my own ASAP! It’s crazy because I have had a pair of nude lucite heels (for about 2 years already!) that are one of my top 5 faves in my shoe closet and to see that I can rock them even more right now makes me even more excited! These are them below and if you remember I made a post about these before previously:

nudelucite

They also have other chic designs that I would also love to try like these booties! Love these open toe booties that are in a different color that I’m not used to at first glance but looks great to experiment:

Missguided, $64
Green Patent Ankle Boots from Missguided, $64

Once weather gets a little chillier you can go for a closed design like these beauties:

Killan Ankle Boots, $53
Killan Ankle Boots, $53

Ready to go a little perspex crazy? I am, Happy Shopping!

#THROWBACKTHURSDAY Thrift Stores – Queens Edition

Am I the only one that gets confused with Queens addresses with all the numbers they put in them!? Lol but I do like Queens for the variety of Latin culture that I find there especially my favorite, my own, Ecuador!

Buffalo Exchange found at 29-16 Ditmars Boulevard (Little tip: take your own bag, they keep it green here!)      $$

#THROWBACKTHURSDAY Thrift Stores – The Bronx Edition

From the borough where hip hop was born, where the best NY baseball teams originate from and where I was born and raised, The Bronx!

There are not many small thrift stores like there are in Manhattan but there are plenty of Goodwill Industries Store and Donation Center (there is one around my way on 361 E 149th street) along with Salvation Army spots (one just added on 149th street) that you can find!

Aside from those spots there is also a Thriftland USA found on 110 East 153rd Street        $

 

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

Let’s go back into time a bit and see how this movement first started! This breast cancer movement to increase awareness and to raise money for more research and ultimately a cure! The National Breast Cancer Foundation in 1991 by breast cancer survivor, Janelle Hail. But I was interested to find out that the ‘Komen Race for the Cure’ was actually held for the first time in Dallas back in October 1983! Evelyn Lauder, Senior VP at Estée Lauder Companies, founded the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and established the pink ribbon as its symbol.

The universal symbol for Breast Cancer Awareness
