New Years Glitter Nails

I'm sorry!! I'm horrible with updating this blog. Please follow me on twitter @2bglam !!! I'm much better at tweeting more frequently :)

Here's a recent picture from XMAS with a friend. My sparkly sweater top is from H&M. I'm wearing the House of Harlow Leather Station Necklace in Khaki. I mentioned this necklace in a prior post that I was lusting after, and I was luckily gifted it for Christmas.



Here's my nails that I'll be wearing for New Years Eve. Deborah Lippmann "I Love The Nightlife." It's really the perfect chunky glitter that is bound to flash and sparkle while I'm out bringing in the new year! and I think the name goes quite well with it too, don't you think? :)
  


HAPPY HOLIDAYS everyone! I hope you all have a wonderful NEW YEAR <3

Sunblock is a Healthy Habit

Sunscreen is extremely important for not only women but men also. It not only protects our delicate skin from skin cancer, but also delays the creation of wrinkles from the sun's harmful UV rays. If you want healthier and younger looking skin, spf is the way to go. Here I talk about my 2 favorite sunblocks.

My favorite chemical peel at the moment. Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peel.

i dream of ...

A necklace that I've been dreeeaaaaaming of ...

House of Harlow Leather Station Necklace
I first saw it at Nordstrom during the Anniversary sale but of course it was full price.
It's a beautiful piece and when I googled it.... I saw that Kim, Paris and Nicole were all wearing the black one



It's quite gorgeous as a statement piece but the one that caught my eye was not the black but this khaki one <3


Do you own this piece? What do you think of it? Is it worth the $80(about) price tag?

Graduation

Thought that I would try something a little different and post about my life :). I recently walked for my college graduation (although I have to finish a summer course to be completely done). In addition, my lovely friends Jane and Jessica, threw my friend Hanna and I a graduation party. They made the cutest decorations all from hand and we had a lovely evening eating Korean BBQ on Jessica's patio.
