Spent the day with my best friends roaming the city and taking pictures. Once we reached the infamous streets of Soho we stopped, threw our crap on the ground and dove right in. This is the outcome and I’m pretty freaking excited about them.

Room Decor

akostar

I’m a crazy person when it comes to room decor. It probably my favorite thing next to pointed toe shoes and Dairy Milk chocolate. I have this weird thing where I move any piece of furniture I can probably every month. Once i’m tired of looking at it, I quickly feng shui like a crazy person. My favorite vibe probably has to be all white. I’m a sucker for white, wood and black. I love the simplicity it holds and it looks pretty darn chic too.

Some of my favorite pieces have to be my little Buddha from Homegoods and my spherical contraption. (also from homegoods) I feel they add a homier, elegant feel amidst all the white. Enough of that let;s not forget the infamous Ikea pillow. Everyone has it but it’s honestly the perfect pillow. It goes with EVERYTHING and it’s comfy as heck.

All About: YOGA

akostar

Ok this post is gonna be all about yoga. I’ve finally met the love of my life and it’s only a train ride away. Getting into a class, sitting down and literally forgetting about all my worries of the week is the only thing that keeps me sane. I look forward to classes simply because I can step away from my crazy life and RELAX. My favorite thing to do is go to an actual studio because I like being directed in something I don’t know much about. Me doing yoga at home will end up with me ditching the mat and heading straight to the nearest computer (because I have the attention span of a goldfish). Anyway, going to a studio with a professional guiding me works best for me and the results are awesome! I don’t only feel relaxed when it’s over but I feel like I actually worked out which is awesome because it takes me a while to get used to running. Overall, yoga for me is the best because I exercise while still getting that workout in!

Everyday Pampering

Ok, so you’re usually used to seeing posts about clothes, but lately I’ve been a tad bit obsessed with makeup so I thought eh, why not? So here it is; a makeup post from yours truly. Now it’s nothing too special just a bit of what I put on my face and some of my favorite products, you know the usual.

So Benefit has become my new best friend. Their products are lifesavers and work magic. The contouring products have shaped my face like crazy and the paleness of my face has been concealed after 17 years.

So getting into skin and hair. Tarte’s amazonian clay foundation is amazing and the coverage is beyond. I’ve heard people rave about this for years and I’ve been using it now for about a year and I couldn’t be happier. Next up, St. Tropez. What would I do without you? The mousse gives me this natural glow that sadly takes tanning oil and hours in the sun for me to achieve (which frankly I don’t have time for) so this product actually saved my life. Moving on to hair, Argan oil and dry shampoo; probably the two basics when it comes to haircare. The Argan oil leaves my hair so smooth and silky it’s like I’ve stolen someone else’s and the dry shampoo, ah! it works wonders. That’s all I can say.

Alright lastly, just some extras I could throw in. The Mac Twig color is my new obsession and the lip balm I use is an amazing base. You see that healing balm next to it? Yeah. Greatest. Thing. Ever. I had no idea what it was when my mom introduced it to me but it’s literally a thick balm that smooths out dry skin and cuts. It may not smell like freshly cut flowers but it does the job so well. Lastly, the all too famous real techniques brush. This has honestly become my favorite thing because I no longer have to rely on my hands to blend anything EVER AGAIN. If I kept going I would have wrinkles at age 25 from how much i pulled my skin applying foundation. This brush is so soft, blends perfectly and looks really cute next to your other makeup brushes (just saying).

Weekend wonders

Hey! So this is going to be a compialation of what I did this weekend! So friday I spent the day with friends at a coffee shop to study for dreadful AP’s. (wasn’t fun) Then we saw a play at my school for Rent which might I say was very good!  

     

Come saturday I had a busy schedule all day and was barely home ( hence the lack of photos). But it’s Sunday now and it’s Mother’s Day so happy matthers day to all the beautiful mommys including mine! Today was a day full of essay writing, picture taking,  and listening to mikky ekko (my new obsession) I might just have to do a blog post about him only. His music is brilliant, a mix between indie and pop. He sings with so much soul and passion that truly resonates in you. Anyway, that was my weekend in a nutshell and I’ll be back tomorrow!

It’s New Year’s Eve! That’s so crazy, the year is already over. I feel like this year went by so fast i couldn’t keep up. So hopefully 2015 will bring smiles and laughs and it’ll be even better than 2014. To celebrate the day, i went out to my favorite coffee shop, Bean&Bean. The interior is so rustic and industrial and their coffee is to die for, so I decided to take my best friend and go.
