HOTD!! [My Fro!]

Hey Loves! This is my hair after a twist out that humidity had its way with lol! I lost the humidity battle, and had no choice but to embrace it and ROCK it!! When the heat index is 105, my hair tends to be disrespectful! I will upload the results of a real twist-out soon!

~Stay cool and Fabulous! xoxoxoxo

Products used-Design Essentials natural curl stretching cream to twist at night and i spritzed my water and coconut oil mix in the morning after untwisting and fluffing!

Happy Saturday Loves!! Lately, I feel like my blog has been leaning more towards nail trends (because as a polish collector, that comes easier to me lol) rather than fashion trends, but i really want to make my blog more well-rounded when it comes to fashion (my other passion) so expect more ...Outfits Of The Day“, ...Wish Lists“ & ...Trends Im Loving at the Moment“ posts very very soon!! Stay Fab! <3 ~Chocolatte xoxoxo~

PepperMINT Patty...;o)

Hey Lovies,

I hope you’ve all had an amazing week!!! I have another NOTD to share with you all! This is a random gem i found at Rite Aid in my nail polish haul featured the other day. As you know, spring is here (even though its stil cold where I am), and pastel nail polishes are totally on trend for this season.

Above is NYC’s Hint of Mint polish,and this really is a perfect creamy minty green. It applied really smoothly (no streaks!!) for such a low end polish and a top coat wasn’t even needed. I love finding quality polishes for affordable prices. :) Anywho, I am on the pastel polish train and I’m enjoying the ride lol…what colors are you loving right now?

Chocolatte xoxoxo~
PS…do you love my new ring?? I cant stop wearing/looking it. Kinda reminds me of those gorg YSL rings i obssess over lol ;)

Color Me Pastel ;)

These are the new pastel polishes I bought yesterday loves! I needed a bit of a pick me up and as I’ve said before “I collect polishes”…as soon as I spotted these on different displays, I knew I had to have them!
L to R:
Sally Hansen’s (Peachy Keen), Wet n Wild (Bite the Bullet), NYC (Hint of MInt), and Sally Hansen’s (Blue-Away)…

I am currently wearing Peachy Keen on my feet and Hint of Mint on my fingers!! I couldn’t wait to try these as soon as I got home. They applied beautifully and I will post more pics later! :) If you are a polish-a-holic, like me, go snag these before they sell out!

Periwinkle Pretty...

Below is Secret Periwinkle by China Glaze. And this pretty lavender blue is unlike any other polish i own! I loved how it applied. It was so creamy, a little streaky, but after three thin coats, I loved the results!!!
Pin It!

BLUE for you...

Below is a gorgeous blue nail polish from Ulta in Bluestreak. This is a creamy, vivid blue color that applies beautifully, this color payoff is only with two coats and no top coat. My camera kind of makes it seem matte but it actually  had a really glossy finish. I usually wait until Ulta has its sale or I use my monthly coupon before racking up! :) If you like blue polishes like I do, go grab one for yourself! What colors are you into this season?

NOTD(s)!!!

Hey Loves!!
I hope you have had a wonderful couple of weeks! ;) I survived midterms and enjoyed my spring break (and got a new puppy) so I can now upload more frequently! Anywho…here are some NOTD pics from the last few weeks. Some people collect dolls, I collect nail polishes…heheheh! :D


Below are some polishes I purchased a few weeks ago. L to R: Essie (French Affair), China Glaze, Revlon (Siren) These apply beautifully and creamy with only two coats. I’m new to Essie but I think it gives OPI a real run for its money in quality and pigmentation. I’ve really been into pastels lately as you will soon see when I post more of my nail polish pics. :)

Below: Isn’t this the prettiest, creamiest blush pink that makes you excited for Spring?!…(which is finally here) I usually don’t repeat the same polish color so close together but I totally re-applied it last week. What are some of your favorite pastel polishes this season?
Stay Fab Lovelies! xoxoxo~

OOTD- comfy cutesy

Hey Loves!! Here is another outfit of the day! It can be hard to look cute when you have to wear a down parka,mittens,earmuffs, and snowboots daily because of the freezing cold, but underneath all of that you can still look fab! ;o)
              
(Peachy pink boyfriend cardigan, brown frilly infiniti scarf, croc print watch, A Grape Fit by Opi on my nails -skinnies and snow boots not pictured-)
Stay warm & fab!! xoxoxo~

OOTD! --class(y) casual...

Hey Loves! I’ve been super swamped this week with school/work!!! But i had to get my blog itch scratched (lol)…anyway, it’s been snowing and yucky where I live, so this is an easy, cozy, casual outfit I threw together for the day.

         
(Green tartan plaid shirtdress, honey mustard yellow pashmina scarf, goldwatch, and navy skinnies -not shown- with Royal Navy nails by ORLY!)
I hope you all are staying warm & FAB!! xoxoxo~

Leopard Fever!!

Hey Loves, this is a random post, but I figured I’d share it anyway! :) Sooo I’ve always loved leopard print, but lately it’s gotten crazy lol. Anywho, when I saw this case for my droid, I just HAD to have it…isn’t it the cutest?
Stay Fab!! xoxoxo~

Nail Of The Day

                    
Hello again loves!! As I mentioned in my last NOTD, I’ve been really drawn to the blue nail polishes in my nail polish collection. And this time I used Orly’s Royal Navy…this is a VERY bright, vivid medium blue with light blue flecks of glitter. A camera can’t capture the true brilliance of this blue hue. I achieved this look with just two coats and top coat for shine!
Stay Fab!! xoxoxo~

BLAZER HAUL!!

Hey Loves! I was out thrifting and found these AMAZING blazers and I just had to share them with you…funny how you find the greatest things, when you’re not looking!! :o)
                     
                     
(LOVE this vintage mens blazer! Check out this lining!!! My camera didn’t capture it accurately but there is sky blue, brown, and cream threading in this blazer and I cant wait to style this!)
                         
                      
(Soooo I’m out thrifting and what do i come across?? A vintage Christian Dior perfectly tailored and lined CHRISTAN DIOR mens blazer!!!!…*insert Haaaalelujahhh*…we were so meant to be! lol)
                       
                      
(BRIGHT Cherry RED blazer from ebay stores! My camera didn’t do it any justice. lol. A wool texured exterior with beautiful red satin lining. ) 
                       
                       
(Thrifted Vintage blue blazer…with a lighter blue satin lining!!)
My obsession for Blazers has been calmed down…for now anyway ;) and I can’t wait to style these. I love how blazers are so multi-dimensional. You can wear them with collared shirts, tops, tanks, skinny jeans, dresses, skirts, leggings, and the list goes on and on!!
What are some vintage/thrifted items you all have found lately? I’d love to hear about them!
Stay Fab!! xoxoxo~

Nail of the Day!!

                       
Heyyy Loves, here’s another *NOTD*!! Sooo my camera didn’t really capture the true color of my nails. (lol) For some reason, they’re showing up matte, when they are really rich, creamy colors! 
I have really been drawn to all hues of blue polish lately, and decided to break the monotony of it with a splash of violet. ;)
what nail colors have you guys been loving lately?
Stay Fab!!!! xoxoxoxo~

Hey Loves! I’ve been recovering from my tooth extraction (blah) and i’m just getting back in the swing of things in my program as well, so things have been really hectic! I’ve missed you all! :)

I wore this outfit to dinner with my sorors to celebrate our founders’ day Saturday! We had a BALL! It was great to catch up and share laughs over great food!!

I’ve really been loving mixing prints lately! What are some trends you’ve been experimenting with?
