nude lips, nude nails

we know that winter makeup is all about red and maroon lipsticks, but who said you have to embrace this trend if you feel that the color simply doesn't suit you? a more modern winter look is going nude on lips and nails which we've been recentley adoring <3 for those of you with nude lipsticks in stock, time to carry them around everywhere you go ;p and to those of you who are new to this shade, just drop by mac and ask for the lipstick shade "jubilee" *pouTs as for a very nude look- concealer nude - then try mac's "myth" shade, just make sure to apply lots of gloss~ as for the popular mac nude shades that we are yet to try, they are "blankety" and "honey love" .. as for manicures, get your nails painted in essie's "mamboo" - so haute *hearts

indulge in the warmest hot chocolate - and don't worry, nude lipsticks won't stain your mugs ;p

spend the last few days of 2007 wisely, & make it as memorable as possible!!

take a moment to reflect back on your year and share with us your most memorable highlights, and how you are planning to wrap up 2007 and begin a new one <3

everyday is a fashion show, and the world is your runway ...

while sipping hot chocolate and flipping through magazines, we began to formulate wishlists in our heads and decided to share with you the best and worst accessories of the upcoming season

spring summer accessories report 08 ~ start your wish-lists, its time (to stress lol ;p ) but dont worry you still have time to abuse your fall/winter accessories!!

we have to start off with marc jacobs (the love) we were all anticipating all the collections he'll be designing for louis vuitton once he joined..BUT omgg the vuitton ss08 collection was RIDIC!! the jokes on the bags, the people having coffee on the bags, SPONGEBOB LUNCHBOX!!! come on marc we love you but you have to help us and our eyes!

moving on to prada - no comment on the shoes ;p but we've seen some cute coin purses and the floral print dresses are TDF!

louboutin: we love the fact that the red from the soles are also on the sides now - siren haute!

YSL: You'll So Love!! everything is A okay except for the weird looking shoes - need we say more?? the post card clutches ~ hearttt

chanel-O: from the gem clutches, to the ankle purses, to the bow bracelet, to the rectangular to circle clutches - PERFECTION!!

marc - we know you didn't mean what you did to louis vuitton's ss08 collection we know .. and we're so loving your new creation, INVENTION of these incredible heels!! even though they're funny looking to some, we're SOOOO going to be the first to wear them! we love love love you and vote you for president ;p

fendi - only one bag caught our eye, and its a remake of the vintage tote ashley olsen was seen carrying around all summer long..the newer version comes in baby blue - heavenlyyy!

bottega- the cutesttt croc envelope clutch!

hermes- no words ever do hermes justice ;p

dior- bubbly!

so whats on your wishlist?

its been a while since our last post, death by finals! tomorrow is our official last day of classes - soo looking forward to thirty days of chillaxing where our biggest concern is nothing more than deciding what to wear and where to dine!

what's a week of finals without a gathering right in the middle? lol ;p we threw a bbq gathering at a very convenient time for those who want another excuse not to study for tomorrow's exaM* preparations were very last minute..usually, we'd arrange the outdoor tables, chairs, and tiny details from which plates we'll use to which cups for hot chocolate a day in advance..this time, everything was decided 2 hours before the did everything work out, you ask? a detailed list is all you need!! jot everything down and you'll be fine~

make sure to have someone who is willing to flip burgers and grill hotdogs available lol because as much as we love bbq's (throwing and attending), we're usually not seen ten feet away from the grill and smoke (*ewH)

other than the list and fabulous company, the only thing you need to guarantee an amazing cookout is luck lol - with our unpredictable weather, a gorgeous breezy night needs lots of crossed fingers and pure luck ;p
next time you meet up with your friends, throw a bbq!! its a fun alternative to the usual gathering and a great way to make use of the fabulously unpredictable weather <3>

lit up~

the lights are up!! <3 its the final weeeek before winter break - what more can we ask for yeyyy* after catching up over tea, h* began to finish up her presentation for tomorrow (wish her luck <3 ) we decided to get away from work by passing by for magazines and cheesecake (not that we're having any ourselves lol ;p ) M went down to get mags but didn't find any, so she came back with a bag full of different flavors of GUM - we quote a parody of mary-kate "you know whats a good diet, gum" (the olsens on E!'s starveillance)

do NOT try the gum diet @ home ;p
P.S even though they're not that clear, you have to take your time enjoying the pictures, we went around the same roundabout with our windows down a couple of times & back and forth on the same road with flashes all over lol *

mini mani evening*

today we got our nails done like the models in the SS08 Dior show~ at first we really loved it but now we are having second thoughts- it looks like we're celebrating "national day" already ;p but still we kinda like this trend- we thought if we use a different, darker shade- like Essie's "solemate" color it would look better, soOo maybe next time we try it with a different color..we were told that if you want to try this, you need rounder nails to put the line on..
anyways..we ended the night with ugly betty and burgerLand*
