Constance Zimmer (From ‘UnReal’) Makeup Inspired Look

Hi dolls!

Lifetime’s UnReal season 2 airs tonight and I am beyond excited! Can you tell? I mean, I even created a makeup inspired look by one of the boss babes on the show – Constance Zimmer. She is one chingona (badass!) that you don’t want to mess with. She is the definition of a #girlboss and with perfect black hair like hers, it’s no wonder she’s a badass. She did do some messed up stuff in the first season of UnReal, but her Blair Waldorf attitude is what I LOVE about her.

I decided to take one of her more edgier red carpet looks and recreate my own makeup look. If one thing rings true, it’s that I feel like a boss babe when I’m wearing red lipstick. Pucker up!

I really love that she made her eyeliner dark and messy. It added more of an edge to her bold lip color. I also like that she used a gold shadow because it created a softness around her eyes. The shadow is very subtle, but it’s just enough to bring the look together. This makeup look made me feel like a true boss babe! I dare anyone to mess with you while your rock a red pout.

I hope you enjoy this post! Besitos!

A Fun, Fringe-tastic Way To Welcome Fall

IMG_8709

You guys!!

It’s been too long! I miss blogging, and I miss you!! I haven’t blogged since May…. that was like when Donald Trump was just the Celebrity Apprentice guy. It’s been a while, but here’s a quick update:

My career is taking over my whole life! Okay, that was a bit dramatic, but I did enroll in a TV hosting class and it has opened my eyes to Ryan Seacrest’s world. It’s tough out there, but I’ve learned so much and can’t wait to show you some of the new videos I’m working on… coming soon, promise!

I guess that’s pretty much it. (totally lame!)

I did run into Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher at UPS and that was pretty awesome. I think it took me about a day to stop smiling about it like a weirdo. What else? I finished Narcos and am soooo happy Jane The Virgin is back on!

Overall, things are starting to fall into place.

Oh, and Fall happened. I just remembered that was also the point of this post. I’m loving the new season. Fall has always been my favorite time of year. It’s during my birthday month (November), Starbucks has their delicious Pumpkin Spice Lattes and scarves really make me happy. It’s just a great time for new experiences and new beginnings (even though leaves will be dying).

Speaking of Fall…. You guys!!! I’m going crazy over this new Fringe-tastic skirt. I’m more in love with the price. I found this gem for less than $25! I’m celebrating the new season with a fun, flirty and fabulous high-waisted skirt, and I hope you’ll join me!

Cheers to new clothes and new opportunities!

5 Things I Learned from Amy Poehler’s Book

 

1. “Writing is hard”

Writing is hard. I love that Amy hits us with the cold, hard truth. Her writing is vibrant, charming and captivating. From her struggles to her success, she keeps you engaged and enlightened the entire time. As a writer, I feel inspired knowing I’m going to have a writing adventure, but I’m also no fool. I know I’m going to be challenged every damn day. It will all be worth it, right? Because in the end, Amy still has a book, a best selling one. I hope this first paragraph is interesting… if it isn’t, it just proves Poehler’s theory that writing is hard.

2. “I think we should stop asking people in their twenties what they ‘want to do’ and start asking them what they ‘don’t want to do.'”

I can relate to this quote on so many levels. I’ve recently graduated (so scary!) and I’m tired of answering the same old, boring questions about whether or not I’ve found a job. Let me tell you something, it’s really difficult to find an ENTERTAINMENT job, let alone during the holidays. I’m sorry. I’m cool. I’m pretty stressed out about finding a job that fits my degree. But, like Amy, I’m a power lady, and I know something will come up. As Amy told her parents when she ventured out to Chicago with only a dream and college degree, “you can be a waitress anywhere!”

Look at her now.

 

3. “Be Whoever You Are”

I admire anyone who preaches individuality. In high school, I admired (still do but not as much) Megan Fox, and I desperately wanted to be like her, like desperately. But reality is a cruel, cruel beast when you realize that looking like Megan Fox is going to be a failed quest. I just want to be the petite, clumsy, brown-eyed, black-haired, fair-skinned Latina. I’ve learned to accept my imperfections and have grown to love them. I don’t want to replicate any celebrity, or become the “next” whoever, instead I just want to be the one and only me.

4. Take Risks

Amy shared her story of moving to Chicago straight out of college, which resembles a little bit of my story too as I plan to move to LA. She had no idea how she was going to afford living there (well, she planned to be a waitress as mentioned before) but she moved anyway to pursue her passion. Moving so far away from home is going to be scary and lonely (good thing my boyfriend is coming with me). Not knowing where I’ll be working is tough and terrifying, and most of all, not knowing how I’m going to afford it is stressful. But, I know that LA is the place I need to be in order to fulfill my dreams. I guess I’ll just have to wing it and work hard to be successful like Amy.

5. “Change is the ONLY Constant”

Change is inevitable. If anything I know that all too well. As a recent graduate, I’m embarking on a new chapter in my life. Even though I feel I’m not ready for this change, it’s happening anyway. It’s time for me to start making “grown up” decisions about where I’m going to work and where I’m going to live. Change can be good though. I feel that it’s finally time to live out one of my dreams, which is to live in LA. I’m eager and thrilled to see where my new adventure takes me.

3 Things I Learned from Lena Dunham’s Book

Screen Shot 2014-12-12 at 1.43.43 PM

Lena Dunham is my spirit animal. I love her charm and sometimes not-so-charming personality, but seriously who can be perky all the time? She has a certain candor and nonchalant way of telling her stories and sharing her experiences. Most people, especially celebrities, share compelling and enchanting stories about themselves as if their entire experiences have been a Cinderella fairytale.

Lena has a way of explaining things the way they actually happened, meaning that most of the time her stories are filled with embarrassment, lame encounters and disheveled appearances. But you know what, those are the stories I remember most. Nothing ever really happens perfectly because it’s real life.

She is amazeballs.

3 Things I Learned from Lena’s Book:

 

1. Sex in real life is definitely not the same as it is on the big screen

“If I was going to write honestly about twenty-something life, sex was topic I’d have to address head-on. And the sex in television and movies had always rubbed me the wrong way. Everything I saw as a child, … had led me to believe that sex was a cringey, warmly lit event where two smooth-skinned, gooey-eyed losers achieved mutual orgasm by breathing on each other’s faces.”

 

2. Not everyone will find a job immediately after graduation (including me)

“I was unemployed. And while I had a roof over my head (my parents’) and food to eat (also technically theirs), my days were shapeless, and the disappointment of the people who loved me (my parents) was palpable. I slept until noon, became defensive when asked about my plans for the future, and gained weight like it was viable profession. I was becoming the kind of adult parents worry about producing.”

3. It’s never too late to be ambitious

“But ambition is a funny thing: it creeps in when you least expect it and keeps you moving, even when you think you want to stay put. I missed making things, the meaning it gave this long march we call life.”
