Check out my new video on my YouTube Channel Healthy Girl TV. This week’s video is the best affordable makeup for the gym. Tried and true, I hope you enjoy this video!
It was a wonderful night in fashion especially for Latin American designers to be representing their community, but the highlight of the evening had to be the closing designer that captured the evening, Wilfredo Gerardo at the Angel Orensanz Foundation.
I don’t write this because he’s my good friend and I’m more biased, or even because I’m a girl and I like dresses. But because his designs are what every girl wants to feel in a dress, expensive, and luxurious. Last Monday we got a sneek peak into what his collection has to offer and it’s stunning!
Most definitely the central theme revolved around darker and neutral hues, as well as beaded and shimmering sheers. Lot’s of depth to the pieces yet simple and elegant, high slits stole the evening and very dramatic cut outs.
These few were my favorites on the runway, and it was so spectacular. The last pic you see is the famous celebrity model Daphnie Joy wearing one of his pieces. The energy in the house was so tremendous. Even though the other designers had a few key pieces that were quite amazing, Willfredo’s pieces took the night. When the music took over, people were waiting with baited breath to see what Willfredo was showcasing and he did not disappoint. Especially when the nude with black overlay dress stepped out, you could hear a gasp throughout the house because that piece was simply gorgeous. Another highlight of the evening was having celebrity pop star Jason Derulo sitting in front of me. I wanted so bad to say something to him, but didn’t want to start geeking out all over.
I’m happy to report that the trend that’s up and coming is, and will be, nude or sheer juxtapositions. Willfredo was not the only designer showcasing that, some of which are Emilo de la Morena, and Alexander McQueen to name a couple. So ladies, it looks like these upcoming few months, (since we’ve had some mild winters) we’ll be making room for more sun, sheer, and sparkle.
Don’t forget to follow me on snapchat, my snap code is in the right column!
Feel free to share this post! There’s still an Urban Decay Naked Smoky palette up for grabs!
It’s snowing out there ladies & gents (or at least it will be snowing) and it’s time to bundle up. It’s officially the holiday season and before you go out there, make sure that you are well prepared with some style essentials. I’ve had the pleasure to test some of these out and let me tell you, they are warm, luxe, and worth every penny! So treat yo self!
We will start bottom to top, first up, boots!
I love the TOM’s Black Water Resistant Suede Booties. Not only are my puppies comfortable but they are also super cute on. I love wedges, they make me look feminine without killing my feet at the end of the day. I would sacrifice my baggage space for these, and now I want one in every color! So FYI if you love me and you’re getting me a present, buy these for me, 8 1/2 thanks!
I don’t know how long the legging trend is going to last but I effing hope it’s forever because these are so comfortable. I guess amongst all the 80’s stereotypes this one panned out to outlast the others. Nevertheless if you’re going to throw your money to the wind this winter, make sure you get these gut sucking slim fitting leggings by Old Navy. They have the right thickness to keep your thunders warm and after a helping of seconds at the dinner table, you’ll be thankful these keep your muffin top at bay.
H&M Boyfriend FLANNELS
I hate to be so cliché, but to keep your tata’s from turning into permanent ice daggers, keep yourself insulated and invest in some flannel tops. I know I know, flannel screams winter. But IDGAF. As of right now, H&M has some pretty spiffy patterns. They’re also pretty reasonably priced. Boyfriend tops range anywhere from $25 and $39 for the more fitted designer flannels. I think I bought a good 7, one for every day of the week! YASSSSS.
CANADA GOOSE KENSINGTON PARKA
So I pretty much would sell all my coats to buy this coat. How dare you Canada Goose make such a quality reliable product and slap it on Kate Upton’s bodacious body! I’m mean tbh, I had no idea that this brand existed until I saw their brand cradling across her tits. Boobie envy is a thing, and yes I have it. But after her Sports Illustrated spread, I’ve been desperately wanting one, even though I lived in Southern California. But now that I live in Detroit a purchase like this is 100% justifiable. So I’ll be passing my winter coats over to new homes and make room for this sweet baby.
HEADGEAR: Love Your Melon
A long time friend of mine and YouTube Star (@mrleozombie) posted something really awesome on Facebook that would be perfect this winter. If you’re looking to cover your noggin, throw on some threads like Love Your Melon. Not only do you buy a wicked ass beanie, but after your purchase they donate one to a child battling cancer. This would make a perfect stocking stuffer for all the kids, and it’s great to also buy something with a purpose of helping others in need! But I would hurry up if I were you, looks like they are selling out quick!
Hope you all get some shopping done since it’s almost Christmas! Make sure you place your orders in by today 12/16 so they arrive in time for the big day. I mean, it’s national shipping day! I may have heard that somewhere, so it may not be 100% true, but still get those orders in!
