Wednesday Wishlist: Edition 2 + Oscar Faves

It's the second edition of Wishlist Wednesday! This helps me organize things that I am loving and contemplating of buying and also listing excuses of why I may need them. Feel free to share your own wishlist! I love to see what people are currently loving - especially when everyone is ready for winter to be over and spring to well.. spring! 

I must have a thing for mint going on! I also think mint and tan look so cute together!

1. Target Mossimo Tie-Dress in Aqua ($30): Target has really been stepping up their game clothing wise lately - I keep finding such cute things every time I go in! Unfortunately this dress is online only, but I think it is the perfect work spring dress and at $30 maybe it is worth a try? 

2. J. Crew Bright Stone Necklace ($138): I am drooling over this necklace - J. Crew has always been on point with jewelry and this would be the perfect necklace! I love the little pops of neon while still being a classic necklace. 

3. Francesca's Grasslands Print Dress ($44): Such a cute little spring dress - perfect for booties, sandals or wedges!

4. Francesca's Monte Carlo Dress ($44): This reminds me of the dress I posted last week, but with a much cheaper price tag!

5. J. Crew Factory Shirt ($74): Such a pretty color for a blouse - I bought my first Blythe silk blouse last weekend from J. Crew and now I am obsessed - I just wonder if this fits the same? Has anyone ever purchased this shirt from the Factory?

6. Tinely Road Vegan Leather Skirt ($79): Obsessed with this skirt! I saw this skirt on Katie from Pearls & Twirls (blog I have been loving lately!) and I think it is the perfect leather skirt! I love it in the tan for the warmer weather and how cute would that look with a mint blouse? Or even a white blouse? SO MANY POSSIBILITIES!

I think I may be the last blogger to post about my favorite Oscars looks but better late than never right? 

These are my favorites - everyone is pretty much in agreement than Jennifer Lawrence looked like a real fairytale princess while Anne Hathaway looked like a 90s prom queen gone wrong... and I am so sorry, but maybe it's time to get extensions in the meantime? However, I thought she did an amazing job as Fantine in Les Mis and totally deserved her award!! I still need to watch Silver Linings Playbook!

Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Haute Couture, Amanda Seyfried in Alexander McQueen, Amy Adams in Oscar de la Renta, Jennifer Aniston in Valentino, and Stacy Keibler in Naeem Khan

The ladies truly looked stunning and I had such a great time watching the Oscars since my friends were over and we just had fun laughing and hanging out!

We made it to Wednesday yay! :)

Thank you for watching lovelies! xoxo

Weekend Update!

Monday? Really? Why are you here so soon? 

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I have been having the most boring Fridays lately! All I want to do is go home and pass out on Friday nights (grandma status) & last Friday was no exception. My sister and I went to Pinkberry and then we watched the movie Sinister (it was horrible). I think we may have passed out at 11PM. Crazy Friday night - I know!

Saturday, my sister and I went shopping, lunching, and manicuring! I got my favorite iced tea combo at starbucks - unsweetened green tea with a splash of passion tea - TRY IT! It is so yummy! I also picked up some spring goodies at J.Crew - ugh that place is sooooo addicting - why is everything GORGEOUS and WHY DOES IT HAVE TO BE SO EXPENSIVE? Oh well - I still gave in (haul coming soon obviously). We got a late lunch at Cheescake Factory (which is always amazing) - with drinks of course - I had a mimosa and my sister had a pomegranate margarita. I am obsessed with their skinnylicious menu - I had the ahi tartare and the farro salad - both divine! We rushed to the nail salon to refresh our shellac - I love the combo I got!

Saturday night, I went out with my sister and some of my friends! It was just a chill night and we went to some bars that are close by. Yesterday - I had a little Oscars get together & ran to target for beer and the maybelline concealer I had run out of and this happened - ALWAYS! Target is so dangerous! 

I have been so bad at taking OOTD pictures lately but remembered to snap one yesterday! Casual sundays are the best!

Have a great Monday!! :)

Happy Friday!

We made it through another week! WAHHOOO!

It's Friday - so that means tonight I will be doing this...
  photo tumblr_mimkl6Cdjk1rrm8cno1_400_zpse340cb91.gif

except replace that with a bottle of pinot noir and we'll be GOLDEN. 

I plan on having a fun day with my sister tomorrow - that means drunch, mall, nap, and then possibly dinner somewhere? If you don't know what drunch means, you must be new here. Drunch is my favorite thing on earth. Drunk Brunch = Drunch. Thinking about it makes me reallly happy :)

That is Jill from Dance Moms - probably the craziest show I have ever watched. That abby lee miller is one feisty lady! You guys seriously need to watch it if you haven't. I have the attention spam of an ADD 8 year old boy & it keeps me VERY entertained. 

I honestly feel like this week has flown by! That always happens when work gets crazy - it is insane that it is almost March and that means we have about 2 months until May which is our craziest month ever with 3 weekend events in a row that attract 20,000 people! And that is just our side job. I still have to travel and sell and handle all community and PR affairs. Cray cray BUT I love it and I am excited to travel too. I will be in Atl, NYC, Chicago & LA in the next 3 months! 

I recently joined a new gym & I have been loving it! It's always refreshing to have a new setting and always fun to people watch while you work out. I have reconnected with my old friend - the stair master - which is the BEST machine for fat burning. You end up looking like you jumped in a pool after only 10 min on it - I usually do 20 on level 6-7 and then hop on the treadmill for interval runs. I have been switching it up though - the stair master kills your legs! 
 photo c234aca47c7f11e2928c22000a9f3092_7_zps7f951ecf.jpg

I tried the skinny vanilla spice latte and wasn't a fan :( I am a total Starbucks addict but I always stick to really plain things - my go-to order is a venti iced coffee with a SPLASH of soy milk or an iced americano - in the summer I love venti iced unsweetened green tea with a splash of unsweetened passion - SERIOUSLY sooo yummy! I usually get my iced drinks in the afternoon for a pick me up - I make coffee at home in the mornings with my tassimo machine & add either unsweetened almond milk or soy creamer - yum! I never add sweetener, just not my thing!
 photo 787392387a9f11e283b822000a9f124c_7_zpsd468d075.jpg

I have also been loving making salmon at home. My dad taught me a trick in order for the house not to smell like salmon - I just wrap the salmon up in foil and toss it on the pan - I plan on doing a video on how I do this very soon so stay tuned! It turns out delicious and I am a total salmon freak. I gave up meat for lent (don't eat it that much anyway) and so I have been Pescetarian for about a week and a couple of days, honestly - I want some chicken wings.

We are having a showdown at work today. There will be video to follow!

I also did some online shopping this week! I ordered the monogram necklace that I featured in my Wednesday Wishlist & also ordered these super cute Aldo Mandina booties that I saw on my friend Courtney - on sale for $50!!! I have gotten a couple of requests to do a review on the necklace once I get it so I will definitely do that when I receive it! :)
 photo -1-3_zps1a5d2818.jpg

I had a laugh attack yesterday - I literally laughed for 20 min straight - I feel so bad for this girl but come on... Count for 20 or more???

Have a great weekend everybody!

Wednesday Wishlist

Happy Hump day lovelies! I am going to start posting weekly wishlists on Wednesdays showcasing items I am currently buying/contemplating. Some I have had my eye on for a while - others are new editions! I am obviously urging for spring just like the rest of the East Coast - TAKE ME BACK TO 85 DEGREE MIAMI! I think the snow over the weekend caused a serious cold front in NC.. it is friggid outside & it doesn't help that my office is also an igloo. Currently wearing the largest/thickest/blankety cardigan from my closet (brandy melville) and still shivering!

 photo WEDNESDAYwishlist_zps543d4147.png

1. J.Crew Medallion Paisley Short $60 - I know it may be a couple of months before we get into short season, but I LOVE shorts! I really want to get these to dress up or down. These would look so cute with a nice silk blouse and wedges for going out or with a simple t shirt and sandals for during the day! Gimme

2. Michael Todd 5 Piece Skin Care Regimen set for Sensitive/Oily Skin $75 (on temp sale) - I am pretty sure the team at Michael Todd has been sending out massive amounts of products to the YouTube beauty community because I can't tell you how many videos I have seen about their products. However, they have rave reviews everywhere and this set is a great price for 5 full sized skin care products!

3. Nasty Gal Pleated Romper $58 - Again with the shorts theme - I personally really like rompers, but they have to be the right kind of rompers. I really want this one for spring - in the meantime I think I could wear it with tights and booties no? 

4.  J.Crew Factory Linen-Cotton Mini in Neon Azeala $42 - I just love these skirts but I am scared to order online since I tried on the crinkle mini in store and I was between sizes so I am not sure if this runs the same or not! This is such a pretty color for spring too! (and on sale!) - it also comes in a pretty green and navy

5. Dolce Vita Jeralyn Dress $264 - my current dress crush - now all I need is 300 dollars to spare and a spray tan. WHY does it have to be that much? #rude

6.  "Chanel" iPhone Case $35 - I don't think there could be a better phone case for me!

7. Rose Gold Monogram Necklace $42 (etsy) - I bought this for my sister for Christmas and I love hers! You guys know my rose gold obsession - this is right up my alley and I am looking for a switch up since I wear my Jennifer Zeuner Cross Necklace every day! Okay - I ordered it already WOOOP.

Chanel Coco Rouge Lipstick & Shine Review!

It's no secret I am beauty product/makeup obsessed - I had been hearing amazing things about the Chanel Coco Rouge lipstick line. Since I already own 2 YSL Rouge Volupte's in fun colors - I wanted to go with some everyday shades. I decided to pick up both a lipstick & a shine! I picked the Coco Rouge Lipstick in #40 - Charme - it is a gorgeous wearable darker pink shade - perfect for every day! I was also intrigued by the Coco Rouge Shine - they remind me of the YSL balms, but they are more pigmented. They are really moisturizing and glossy! I picked up the one in #54 - Boy - it is a beautiful mauvey nude - the pictures do not do it justice - I am sure these will be included in my February Favorites video!

 photo SMALL_zps4dc7a6f4.png

The packaging on these lipsticks is obviously the classic Chanel lipstick packaging - makes me happy :) The shine comes in a thinner tube.

Truth be told - I prefer the lipstick over the shine. The lipstick is luxurious & has serious staying power. The shine is gorgeous too, but like any other balm/shine - it does not last SUPER long. It is very comparable to a few of my favorite Revlon lip butters! If you are looking for a really nice lipstick - I highly recommend the Coco Rouge lipstick - they have the prettiest shades too ((aka I want more)) 

Hope you enjoyed this little beauty review - let me know if you would like for me to do more! :)

Weekend Re-Cap!

Happy Monday everyone! I had a pretty good weekend! My sister's boyfriend is visiting from out of town and he made my family the BEST dinner on Friday night! Saturday - Charlotte got SNOW - it was crazy. And yesterday was LAZY. I had a horrid headache ALL day!

Friday afternoon at work - my sister and I being silly!

That didn't stop us from going out on Saturday night though!

We had such a great time, but I paid for it all day yesterday! I need to learn my lesson on not mixing drinks anymore. Ah! Yesterday - I watched like 12 episodes of Ghost Whisperer - I know how productive of me! LOL! Have a great week everyone! 

Linking up with Sami & her new link-up!! :)

Happy Friday!

Another week bites the dust! February has been FLYING by! That always happens when things at work start to pick up. I am also ready for daylight savings to kick in. I am over pitch black at 6:15 PM. 


So let us all celebrate the weekend!!! Last weekend went by so fast, so I am going to make the best of it this weekend! 

This is how I will be walking out of work today.

A peek into my week...

My mom is always so nice to me on vday because guess what? I have never ever ever EVER had a valentine! I know what you are thinking it's insane - I am the most amazing person on the planet how could this be true?!?!? ;-) But it is. Nonetheless. #ohwell - she got me the cutest Kate Spade bangle :) So sweet of her!
 photo 4e80fd64778211e29a6422000a9e06c4_7_zpsb1905edf.jpg

Even my sister's boyfriend Chris felt bad for me (just kidding - it was literally SO sweet of him to get my flowers too - He's a keeper Natalie!!!) ((he also got me peanut butter chocolates from Ohio!))
 photo b1de736a76af11e28e2d22000a1fbe71_7_zps3eda78e1.jpg

What does a single gal do on V-day? Go to the gym of course. I joined a new gym this past week and I am OBSESSED! My sister and I are going to start working out with a trainer next week - I am so excited! I have the stairmaster back in my life & it is a great feeling. Also - they have these awesome bikes that have custom paths for you to take. They are so entertaining & a great workout! 
 photo 735943f8757a11e2a9cf22000aaa0a6f_7_zpsedfe4869.jpg

and what does that said single gal deserve after 40 min on the stairmaster (I probably completely reversed my workout but who the hell cares on Valentine's day!?) - considering I treat sirracha as a side dish for virtually anything I eat - I had to get these & they did not disappoint!!
 photo 60a24854770f11e283b822000a9f124c_7_zps2b0a644f.jpg

My mom and I made dinner and drank Pinot noir = perfection in my book! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! :)

Happy Valentines Day Loves!

Work has been super crazy this week - but I wanted to pop in and say Happy Valentine's Day to you all! Whether you are single or taken - take this day as a celebration to tell everyone you love how much you care about them. 

This year, I promised myself I would put myself and my happiness first so here is my reminder.

A shopping haul ft. my sister + my Best Dressed from the Grammy's!

Some days, I feel like I have nothing to blog about and other days - I am inundated with ideas and stuff to post! TODAY is one of those days. 

If you follow me on twitter, youtube or facebook - you might have seen - I filmed a haul with my sister over the weekend! If you know Natalie, you know this is a win in my book, I don't know how I convinced her, but I secretly think she loved it. Also, we have another special guest in our video too! I also feel like I look extremely obese and huge from this camera angle and my hair looks like a bob. Oh well. I will never wear my hair curly like that on camera ever again! I show some goodies from Tarte (from this blog post), Mac, Tory Burch & some clothing! 

Tory Burch iPad Case (French Rose)

Let me know if you have any questions about any of the products that were shown!

So, I am sure I am not the only one who wasn't blown away by any of the Grammy fashion choices on Sunday. My favorite was T. Swift. Girl loves herself some J. Mendel - it always looks fab on her. T swift makes me want to be an A cup and rock low cut dresses like this. I would be arrested if I tried to wear a dress this low cut. T Swift looks classic and gorgeous. I HATE her hair. I am SO over her stupid bangs & I miss it when she used to wear her hair in glamorous curls. 
 photo ScreenShot2013-02-12at101928AM_zpsbf82ce64.png

Rhi Rhi looked FIERCE in her Alaia gown - she looked so pretty and I loved her hair! I always think girls look so much better and prettier with long hair! 
 photo ScreenShot2013-02-12at101750AM_zps35f185d0.png

And everyone else looked like trash. literally. Don't mean to hate but god people who usually dress great TOTALLY disappointed me. I really hope the Oscars fashion is fab - bc awards fashion has been so BLAH this year! 

Have a great Tuesday everyone!

HUGE week/weekend Update!

So my official work travel season has started - that means less time to blog/vlog! However, I am trying to plan ahead and post and dedicate time to blogging more at night. I was in Miami from Wednesday to Friday of last week for work and this weekend went by in the blink of an eye!! I hate short weekends but this week seems pretty chill so far. 

Follow me on Instagram to keep up with me when I travel: Pamelaisanchez

Miami Bound travel outfit & gear! I received LV luggage as my 18th birthday present and they look as great as they did 7 years ago! I always travel comfy but CUTE. No sweats or tennis shoes for me at the airport - you never know who you will meet! I wore Old Navy compression leggings (which ROCK!), a target sweater (recent), and my Tory Burch tan flats. You know I love my heels, but even I think it is ridiculous when I see women running around the airport in heels - ain't nobody got time for that + you look like a dumb ass.  
 photo de9a38a6708511e2942122000aaa0535_7_zpsb07122f1.jpg

So, I am deeply in love with Miami! Whenever I go for work, we stay in Coral Gables which is a little bit outside of South Beach, but this time we had a meeting there so we were able to explore Lincoln Rd a little! GORGEOUS! I wanted to stay and shop and live there! LOL! Miami is fabulous & I want to go back ASAP and have a girls trip there!

I came home late on Friday night & Saturday we had a full day of hair & makeup for a gala that night.

We had such a great time & we didn't end up sleeping till almost 4! Yesterday was pretty relaxing, we had some family friends over for dinner & watched the grammy's a little - well I fell asleep in the middle of it - is it just me or were they really 6 hours long? TOO long. 

My new MAC purchase from the new collection - Archie's Girls - the face powder in Flatter Me which is AWESOME as a blush!

A really great deal on Tarte Cosmetics!

Hey Ya'll! Super busy today, but wanted to pop in and share this amazing deal I heard about (and quickly purchased) last night - I think it is only on sale until the end of today! It is an almost $170 value for $60 only! You get all full sized products of some of Tarte's best sellers! The amazonian clay foundation, the foundation brush, a lipstick, a blush, a mascara and an eyebrow pencil!! Not to mention this super cute makeup bag! AWESOME deal if you ask me!

I purchased it in the "light" color - I head about it through one of my favorites BeautyBaby44 on YouTube. 

Purchase the Tarte Bag on QVC HERE!

Let me know if you pick it up to! I couldn't say no to this especially since I have been wanting that foundation for a while anyway! :)
