January Favorites 2016


I welcome you back after being gone for almost a year. can you believe it?!! A WHOLE YEAR!!
well, I honestly had so much to do and those who are close to me knows well why.
anyways, since its February I decided to make a January favorites (First time ever!!)before its too late. I know my blog is all about photography but this year I'm shifting things around! Don't worry I will still throw an interview here every once in a while.
now, where were we?! ... oh yeah my favorites for the month of January!
Lets do this...


So the first item is something I got last year and still love so much.
my Massimo Dutti clutch bag with a gold chain. what I love about this bag is the amount of details in it, the exterior and how it looks perfect worn in either side.
the inside is also just as impressive with a built in card holder that can hold up to six cards. there's plenty of space to hold your cards, some cash, your phone and a bottle of perfume and even some make up items!



speaking of make up! my next favorites were a happy fluke! I had a fashion emergency and went to a drug store for some make up and found my favorite lip liners and lipsticks!
the shades I love are every shade people are wearing right know. the nude pinks and the nude browns aka Kylie Jenner signature colors. these lip liners are by a company called GOSH (I just heard of them) and they are pigmented and Matt.
the first shade of lip liner is called 001 Nougat crisp it's a nude pinkish lip toned color, the most natural color there is. I love pairing it with a lipstick in the color 003 Antique for  brownish nude lips.
for a nude pink lip  the color combo is lip liner 002 Antique Rose and lipstick in color 002 Rose. these colors are a great replica for the Kylie Jenner lip ket, in my opinion any good Matt lip liner and lipstick will do as long as you apply them the right way. what I love the most about GOSH Matt lip liners is how long they last and how well they go together. I totally recommend them for all skin tones.


here are the swatches 

the first combo will give you this Kylie look 

and the second combo will give you this look 

My next favorite make up item is Benefit They're real Gel eyeliner.
the photo from their official website 
 It comes with this magical applicator that makes winged liner easy for girls like me (aka girls who have one dominant side) you twist the bottom of the liner and it pumps the liner into the applicator and voila! there you have it! its also a long lasting water proof wear so enjoy.


My favorite nail polish forever is by Essence and its called grey-t to be here. I love this color I think it compliments me and looks good with everything.


 and here's a photo of the dress from the official Zara website 

Since we are still in fashion mode my next item is actually a dress! 
I got this dress from Zara and I love everything about it. the fabric is soft and a little stretchy so it complements any curves you have, the colors are just beautiful and at the back there's a sexy back slit as a surprise. I paired this with maroon leggings and brown suede boots.





I decided to join everyone and actually try the magical hair brush that straightens your hair and ever since I got it I couldn't stop using it! it saves so much time and gives that natural straight look to the hair when used properly. I won't be making a review since everyone in the internet already did.



Perfumes are my favorite things in the world. for this month I have two favorite perfumes. the first is Poppy by Durance.
I just love how soft, romantic and feminine this perfume is. its very simple and medium wear. works perfect for people who cannot stand strong perfumes. also, this company became my go to for perfumes because of how simple and elegant most of their products are.

Prodigieux® le parfum by Nuxe is my next favorite this month. if you are familiar with this company you'd know that this perfume and about everything else smells like a beautiful garden! this perfume is very luxurious and rich but yet subtle and soft. I have a bottle of this in my bag at all times.


For skin care I can never give this product enough praise. the bioderma sebium purifying facial foaming gel for acne prone skin is perfect for those bad skin days. it keeps the skin fresh, it gently cleans it with absolutely no irritation . I usually use this product along with the intensive purifying cream for best results.
for removing my make up I use the facial cleanser Sensibio H2O for sensitive skin by biodrema. it removes pretty much all the make up in one wipe and keeps your skin refreshed and soft for the rest of the day!



This month my favorite app is blendoku. it's a puzzle game where you try and figure out where each color should go. It's beautiful, challenging and perfect for artistic people or anyone who loves colors.


The book of the month is the hardest thing for me because once I start talking about a book its almost impossible for me to shut up. the book I picked is called (The power of the heart): Finding your true purpose in life by Baptist de Pape. the thing I love the most about this book is you can learn from eighteen of the world’s greatest spiritual thinkers, writers, and scientists, including Maya Angelou, Deepak Chopra, Paulo Coelho, and Eckhart Tolle. all these amazing mentors giving advice in this one book. this book made me feel excited about life again. no matter who you are and what you do I guarantee this book is going to benefit you one way or the other.

P. S: actual book reviews coming soon!



The movie of the month goes to (The Revenant). While exploring the uncharted wilderness in 1823, legendary frontiersman Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) sustains injuries from a brutal bear attack. When his hunting team leaves him for dead, Glass must utilize his survival skills to find a way back home to his beloved family. Grief-stricken and fueled by vengeance, Glass treks through the wintry terrain to track down John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy), the former confidant who betrayed and abandoned him.
YES! Leo did it hopefully an Oscar this year!


I Have to shamefully admit that I started watching Game Of Thrones about two months ago ...SHAME!!

but I watched all five seasons and now I feel empty waiting for the final season. so the show is about  several noble families in Westeros at war , the children of the former rulers of the land attempt to rise up to power. Meanwhile a forgotten race, bent on destruction, return after thousands of years in the North. << this is the most non- spoiler way to put it since I've seen so many spoilers for the past five years. what I have to say about the show is there's a lot of killing, blood, nudity, sex, creepy family members seeing eachother naked, power and money. but there's something about that show that made me want to see more. this is the first time that I watched something of this sort but I can't wait for the next season.

and that's all folks! I hope to post next month's favorites on time!
thank you everyone for reading I hope you enjoy this. Don't hesitate to share :)
