Kardashian Krazy!

I don't know about any of you but one of my other obsessions besides BCBG dresses are the Kardashian's sisters! Say whatever you want to say but they are PURE FABULOUSITY ! From their hair to their make up to their pedicures! Amazing style and I LOVES IT!  At work I can't get enough requests of people wanting everything Kim K... from her pearly glow to her amazing contoured cheekbones!

So of course I'm one of her 10 million followers on twitter ... you can follow me and be one of my seven LOL .She posted the most amazing Sophia Loren inspired makeup from a shoot with Mario & I have to attempt to recreate it !

Here is the look...

 I'll take that pleather jacket thingy too.. thanks! ;)

Let's see if I can stick to this one and deliver it to you guys! :)

Because planning your wedding takes a REALLY LONG time...

I decided to devote some posts to the whole coming together of the wedding day process. For any other married ladies out there I'm sure you all understand understand. It's like you plan a wedding for years/months and just like <<<Phoofff>>> The wedding day comes and go & guess what? I barely remembered the whole day! Of course we decided to skip on the videographer, one because most of them are SOOO cheesy... 2 I wanted lighting instead! lol so here are a few snippets of my bridal shower that was planned by my most AMAZE maid of honour & soon to be bride NOV 2012! :)

So my day started out like this... ( I know my sheets look awful but that is what happens when u have a baby and are planning a wedding... lol ) 

 Dress: Rampage ( yes juniors section) lol

 My super fab maid of honor!

Can you guess what was my wedding color? 

The bestest bridesmaids EVER! :D

Me trying to remember what I scanned in for my registry ...

Hubby showed up at the last minute to bring me flowers & of course pick up all the gifts... :)

Finally this is how my day ended .... with the fam at one of our Portuguese festivals we have every year.  Here is a pic of mommy, I and the boo boo

True love...

BCBG has become my TO GO brand when I'm looking for a cute cocktail dress! I just can't run away from them. Being Brazilian I was blessed with a curvy figure and they seem to flatter me in all the perfect places.. This summer I have worn nothing but BCBG dresses for my main events. It's like a decease, and hubby is not impressed because they don't come super cheap! Here are some looks I pulled together.

Shoes : Aldo

 ALDO Platform Pumps & Clutch

(Same dress two different colors)
Shoes : Christian Louboutin

There are still two dresses with tags on them I have yet to wear. I'm obsessed  I just need an occasion! :)

Real talk....

When your a mommy it's had to stick to the plan. Like all those ideas I had for those Kim K inspired make up looks? Yeah.. didn't happen, I was running around all day trying to get everything together so Brandon could sleep at in laws house while we had a night off for the wedding. Plus I had to find a dress last minute because the one I originally ordered online never came in on time :( It was pure chaos in the house because my prince/hubby always relay's on me on getting ready time, but none of this stopped me from being the glam mommy that I am.. or try to be anyway... haha  :)

So here is what I came up with on a 1 hour time frame to do hair and makeup...

Clinique Dramatically Different moisturizer
MAC Prep + Prime Skin Base Visage
YSL Teint Resist foundation
Make Up Forever HD Powder
Concealer from beauty tech pallet  
MAC Harmony blush to contour
MAC Sunny By Nature mineralize skin finish as upper bronzing contour
MAC Sunbasque blush on the apples of the cheeks
MAC Soft & Gentle highlighter
MAC Lingering eyebrow pencil
MAC clear eyebrow gel

MAC Painterly paint pot primer
MAC  Brassy fluidline all over lid
Urban Decay Half Baked E/S all over lid
MAC Embark E/S upper crease & lower crease

MAC Sublime culture lip liner
MAC Honeylove lipstick

Happiness project... major fail...

It's been forever since I have been able to do a blog post.. well truth is I just have been too lazy. I don't know what it is but after I became a mom it doesn't matter if I get 4 or 12 hours worth of sleep , I'm always fatigued/tired. Maybe it has something to do with running around a 10 month old ball of pure yummyness? Brandon has been all over the place! I'm pretty sure he's about to walk at any point. He takes small steps and falls slowly to the ground, poor thing!  I'm not sure how I feel about this though... I hate seeing how fast time goes by :( Soon hell be in college ! Ok ok I know I'm over exaggerating but it's just all happening too fast .

He went from this

 To this

way to fast & I'm not ready to give him up to this crazy world any time soon! Such a drama queen I know... :)

Anyway, I wanted to check in considering my project happiness has been a no go, no start no nothing. I haven't even came up with any goals. Every month I will tackle something new. Basically, what the writer did. I'm not even sure where to begin... Ohhh yes I do! Getting my life together like starting school in November for Aesthetics and getting a real full time job!!! I have an interview on Tuesday which I'm really excited for! It's for a traveling bridal company that is so trendy! I'm from CT and everything here is very boring, brown and not fabulous. I feel like I should live in Jersey no maybe MIAMI! Yes I LOVE MIAMI! :)  The owner is Blondie from Hair Battle Spectacular which is super awesome!Which look should I do for my interview? I wanted to do a Kim Kardashian look since you cant ever go wrong with anything those three biotches do. I know it's annoying to some but let me tell you when I work at MAC that's what every customer is all about. You tell them Kim wears it and they buy it! I don't blame them because I love them so I'm in for it! :)  I'm going to pick one of these looks and try to recreate them... HELP me choose?




I might try it out for a wedding this Friday ! Pics to come! :)
