Sleek, Chic, & Street-Smart: The City-Kitty

Bonjour mes amis! It's official, fall is here and I'm eager to dress up in rich colors, cozy fabrics, luxurious scarves and tough leather! My association with fall is a depiction of me rushing to the subway to get to class, with bitter NY wind slapping my face, and my grande mocha soothing my nerves as I scramble to find my metro card. It's a story most New Yorkers are familiar with and one I am happy to leave behind! This year, I'm celebrating not having to rush to class, and I'm also excited to change up the look of my autumn makeup from school appropriate to party ready!

Today's makeup is dark, shimmery and demure -- perfect for nighttime and fit for a City-Kitty! I'm a huge fan of darker makeup, it always makes me feel like a chic, sleek, powerful heroine in an awesome thriller, and I'm excited to tell you all about it :)) P. S. This look can be achieved in under $30 -- those are some serious savings that any street-smart city chick can appreciate!

Showcase: Miniature Nail Artworks

Hello old friends and new!! Today's post is a showcase of my latest nail-art, featuring a hand-painted collection of 10 distinctive designs for each fingernail. I created this nail art with no theme in mind -- I was just practicing my micro-doodling -- the result: a melting pot of swirls, scribbles, tribals, abstract & realism. This creative chaos combines some of my favorite elements in art (which is so very me) and is pretty cohesive overall. What do you think?

Can't Live Without My "Maryam"

Salam dear friends :) Today's post is long overdue and is featuring my favorite keepsake: my silver "Maryam" necklace.

I've worn my "Maryam" in many different posts and have always gotten a ton of compliments, as well as questions, so today, I'm giving you all the info and even including a makeup look inspired by the piece.

Zen Society Skincare

Hello old friends and new! Fashion Week is over and I'm back to my regular blogging schedule -- woo-hoo!! I must admit, the past few weeks have been extremely fast-paced and tiresome on my body. I've attended many events, met a ton of people and have worn A LOT of makeup. Given the circumstances, my skin hasn't had much of a chance to breathe or regenerate itself and with all the stress I've put it through, I was expecting a massive breakout-age the week following all the activity. This time, however, my skin was saved. Lucky for me, a wonderful care package arrived my way just in time and although my skin had faced the worst possible conditions (constant makeup, lack of sleep & stress), these conditions were met by an equally powerful antidote: Zen Society skincare. In today's post, I want to go back to the roots of nature and share a review of the Green skincare line that proved itself in the time I needed it most.

Spikes, Studs and Fashion Week

Bonjour mes amis and Happy NY Fashion Week to all my Fashionistas!! This week is always a memorable one in the life of a New Yorker. Between Fashion's Night Out (FNO) and all the preparations for the shows, it's hard not to get inspired and/or influenced by all the lively and expressive street fashions that can be seen on the sidewalks of New York. This week, I'm inspired by fashion and interpreting it through my nail art and decoration. Today's nail post is vampy, gothic and avant garde -- for the dark, McQueen soul in you...

Dress Up Your Labor Day Whites!

Hello old friends and new! Today is Labor Day, a federal American holiday observed on the first Monday in September, historically celebrating the economic and social contributions of workers. Culturally, this holiday marks the unofficial end of summer, and symbolically, it is the last day of the year when it is fashionable to wear white. Although, this tradition was mostly observed in High Society, it has become a pop culture fad and is often celebrated with "White Parties" hosted by popular celebrities in upscale locations such as The Hamptons, NY.

Today's makeup look celebrates the symbolic end of summer and dresses up my whites in brights! I'm sad to kiss my summer goodbye, but for now, I'll embrace the spirit and celebrate it in style :))
