did she or didn't she?



Megan Fox used to be the hottest chick on the planet. She was sexy, mysterious and drop dead gorgeous but nowadays, she looks a bit off. She looks so much older than she really is and her face looks like she had botox. She looks 40ish and matronly. What is it with young stars nowadays? They want to look older and end up getting just that: old.

style spotlight: leighton meester

It is rare for Leighton Meester to be photographed as herself and not as her alter ego Blair Waldorf in Gossip Girl. I am so used to marvel at her amazing wardrobe in the tv series that I often forget that she does have real fashion sense in real life. Of course, she has her share of hits and misses but hey, a girl's gotta experiment with her looks.

a strappy affair

I cannot wait for warmer weather because it means one thing: sandal season...and there are a lot of pretty, sexy styles out there. Strappy ones are a must have because it is alluring and makes the tootsies really pretty. Just make sure you had a pedi before wearing it and a nice colored polish would be great.

style spotlight: camilla belle

I have an ultimate girl crush and it's the beautiful Camilla Belle. She is so drop dead gorgeous that it's so hard to take my eyes off her.(warning:tomboy alert) She dresses so classy and elegant. A breath of fresh air from typical young hollywood.

hope springs eternal

Okay, so I know winter is not quite over yet but we've been so spoiled that we have a really mild one that I cannot help but be inspired of the colors of spring now. I imagine vibrant colors, pastels, butterflies, flowers etc. Oohhh I'm so excited!

trend alert: printed pants

Printed and colored pants are popping everywhere like dandelions in the springtime. I must admit, I am skeptical of wearing one because it seems too larger than life. However, if you choose the right prints and designs, I think it would actually  work. Something with animal print,flowers or an ikat design would look great.

best makeup remover

I have not posted on my blog for a while because I've been pretty busy with work. Anyways, I am back... I don't wear much eye makeup because that is one area that I need to practice on but everyday, I do wear mascara. It is such a pain in the neck to remove it though. I tried a a lot of brands but by far, Neutrogena works wonders. It is very gentle yet it totally removes all traces of makeup.

style spotlight: audrina patridge

The Hills alum is a poster girl of casual Cali cool. She wears clothes that are comfortable yet chic. I like the fact that she is not glommed up all the time. She is usually clad in casual attire and that makes her style easy to emulate.

golden globes best dressed

Awards season is here and that means gorgeous gowns and beautiful faces. For the Golden Globes, these radiant gals ruled the red carpet. Nudes are big that night so a pop of color is  refreshing to the eyes. Beaded gowns, lace and silk taffeta are still the number one fave when it comes to the material. You can never go wrong with them.

how to wear: stripes

Contrary to what everybody is saying, everyone can wear stripes but you just have to choose the right one. Too wide stripes elongate the body horizontally and will make one look wider. The key is to pick the right size of stripe. Two inches and lower seems universally flattering so anyone can get away wearing it.
