Post Birthday, Outfit!

Flawless Outfit. Friday!


This past Wednesday I received an order I did online from #NastyGal, I was extremely excited about this particular package, because I had ordered a jacket I been keeping an eye on for a couple of weeks.

On Sale


I fell in love with this particular Nasty Gal Off Duty Jacket - Plaid since I saw it, but was a little over my personal budget at an original price of $108.00. The jacket has been on their Sale section for a few weeks now, first time around on Sale for $75.00 still thought it was a little pricy, so I waited.

To my luck, a week or two later I checked one more time and there it was at a SALE PRICE of $54.00 OH LORD, I was happy. Of course I added the item to my cart and had to order a few more things, since I needed to meet the $75 minimum to receive free shipping!

That's where I got this super cool and fun Ziggy Pavé Ring Set for $10.00

I also paired this outfit with my loyal Shoe Cult Lena Boots which are currently sold out!

To finish it off, I added this fabulous black and white striped purse that my lovely friend Liz got me as a birthday present.

Luxe Lounge & Spa

Manicure & Pedicure


Took the day off from work yesterday; being my birthday I decided to make it a me, myself and I kind of day. So I opted for a Manicure and Pedicure to start my day.

I asked a friend to help me find spots in San Diego, that did cute manis and pedis, I didn't want to go to the regular "Nail" spots near my house. So she found a few locations and the one that caught my eye the most was Luxe Lounge & Spa. After checking out their Yelp reviews I knew this one was the winner.

Called them, made an appointment and started driving my sweet little butt to #Downtown San Diego. Parking is always a pain in Downtown San Diego, but I manage to park about a block away from the location, it was a 2 hour max meter street parking spot.

Walked in and immediately got greeted by two lovely ladies. The establishment was very clean, spacious, cut edge and modern, white on white and earthy aromas.

oseawey-luxelounguespa

I was asked to chose a color from one of their walls for my pedicure and an aroma. I chose a dark purple color for my toe nails and lavender scent. I may say it was very relaxing.

ac85a656b5ef11e3b6ab1261623df5e6_8

referenceWhile I got my pedicure done, I was browsing online through my phone for a cute design to do on my nails. This is the one I found on #Instagram.

I advise you to take a print out of a design that you have in mind, because they don't have a catalog or any reference for you to look at and get ideas from.

The girl that did the design on my nails was pretty nice and creative, she looked at the picture a few times, but didn't really copied the design exactly; she gave it her own unique touch and got inspired by the design I had found and she also asked for my input. I love my nails, they are soooooo cute!

oseawey-manicure

Overall experience


I will give them 4 1/2 stars rating for Luxe Lounge & Spa. The place is nice, clean and spacious, the staff was lovely and attentive, their service is fantastic and very well done. My only complaint is that it took a little long for me to get out of there. Got there at 1:15pm and was out at 4pm, but then again I did get a pedicure, manicure and art on my nails, so all that always takes some time.

As for the price, my total spent on a Pedicure & Manicure including the designs on my nails was a grand total of $80, not bad!. So to answer you question; Yes. I will totally recommend it to my friends.

Layers of Clothing

Why do I make faces?


I make faces when taking my daily outfit picture, because I want to be silly and have some fun with my pictures. I can't really be all sexy, I mean I guess if I try I'll accomplish sexy LOL, but since my daily pictures are almost always taken during our "work breaks" and almost everyone or some people are staring, I think my brain switches to silly mode! To be honest I like them, this way.

Layers. Studs. Plaid. Leather.


Today I wore layers of clothing, one because it was cold and a little windy, according to my weather app it will rain tomorrow and Thursday, here in San Diego.

oseawey-layersandplaid

First layer was this cute Knit Top Short Sleeve Cream with Studs and Chiffon Back from #Forever21 $14.80. Second layer my favorite Rustic Plaid Shirt Dress which I have worn before as a dress, read Plaid, Shirt Dress post. Third but not least my handy Black Leather Biker Jacket, this puppy is warm. I paired all these layers with some dark skinny jeans and my faithful black converse shoes.

Red & Multi Colored Glitter Nails

Its been a week since I did the Distressed Nail Design post. So last night I sat in front of my TV watched a movie "That's My Boy" while I did my nails. This is the outcome! Pretty easy, pretty simple. Loved it!

oseawey-redglitternails

Simple Glitter Nails



This time around I opted for a more simple technique; Glitter, so I decided to use one solid color as a base and a multi glitter polish as the top main dominant layer.

These are the colors I used:

1) An Affair in Red Square polish from O.P.I (Red Shinny Color)

2) Multi Colored Glitter Polish from Forever21.

oseawey-redglitterednails

*Always remember to apply a natural almost clear base coat before you start with any other colors, since certain nail polishes tend to stain your nails orange or yellow. Many base coat polishes also help with the growth and thickness of your nails so its a big benefit to use.

Hair Cut

Who cuts my hair?



This past Saturday I booked an appointment with my hair dresser, Carmen. She is a doll. I been getting my hair cuts with her for the past 6 years, she knows exactly how I like my hair, so no need to stress if she will do a good or bad job. She does an excellent job every time!

Getting a trim is not the same as getting a hair cut?



After getting my "hair cut" I asked my boyfriend if he liked it, he couldn't even notice that I cut my hair, then my friend made a comment "Getting a trim is not the same as getting a hair cut" which got me thinking and I looked up the definitions for these two words.

A trim is considered to remove (excess) by cutting it.
A haircut is the style in which a person's hair is cut.

Cutting your hair and trimming your hair to me is exactly the same thing, both are giving it shape and style. Right?

How do I know when I need a Hair Cut?


I usually don't follow that old school rule, every 3 months you need a haircut so it grows faster and long. I try my best to go every 6 months, but I usually forget. These are my main 3 reasons why I get a hair cut or trim:

1) I have no more shape. I have a lot of hair, and when my hair grows to much, I sometimes feel I look like "Mufasa" meaning like a Lion! When my hair has no shape, it gets freeze easily and I feel my face looks rounder, I have no control over it so I find myself just putting it up on a bun.

oseawey-lion

2) I got a bunch of split ends. Split ends are easy to spot, a healthy single hair strand is intact all the way to the end, a split end looks just like that but two separate thin strands of hair at the bottom of the hair shaft, sticking away from one another.

3) My hair is extremely damage. Self explanatory, and obviously the longer you wait to trim those split ends the more damaged your hair will get. So don't wait to long.

I am very good to my hair I hardly do anything to it, maybe this is why it grows long and healthy? I hardly blow dry it, or straighten it, or curl it. I just wash it, put some treatment/oil on and let it dry on its own.

I will soon write a post on what I do to my hair on the daily basis to keep it growing long and healthy.

Braids

Simple braids



On Friday morning, after posting my daily look: It was a FLORAL Day. I went ahead and started braiding my hair, the goal was for me to braid all my hair then at the end of the day before going out to my friends birthday dinner, I would take the braids down so that my hair had a zig zag affect.

My braids looked so cute, that everyone around the office started noticing them. So, once I got home I just decided to keep them.

What I did?


I grabbed about 1 inch of hair for each of the braids, not to thick not to small. I usually part my hair to the left so I saved that side for last, since I have more hair on that side. On the right side I did about 2 braids, and a couple more on the back. I then moved to the left side and braided all the lower hair first, the remaining hair I divided into 4 braids. Finally I pulled all the braids to my left side and to hold them together I used a small hair clip.

It was a FLORAL Trend day!

Friday, my kind of Day


Today was a good day, for starters it was Friday and it was also my lovely friends daughters 12th birthday, we saw you grow into a pretty and intelligent young lady! Happy birthday Brisa!

Floral trends are in right now, you can see them almost everywhere on everything. Starting on clothes, backpacks, accessories, shoes etc, so I bough myself some few floral garments. I felt super cute and super comfortable in these polyester bold floral scuba knit leggings that I got at Forever21 last week, I got a lot of compliments and I got to admit that when I ordered them, I didn't realize they were polyester, and thinking they were cotton I got my usual size Medium, they were a little tight at first but throughout the day, they got broken into and had a relax fit.

oseawey-floralkindofday

The white top is also from Forever21, a refined woven shirt and relaxed oversized shirt featuring two patch chest pockets with basic collar, button-tab, 3/4 sleeves, full button placket, curved hem and very lightweight, it wrinkles easily, so beware. I hate ironing, my boyfriend usually helps me with that.

For shoes I wore these leather, yes leather black combat boots I got at Nasty Gal on sale for $50! Cant beat that!

Finally I used this cute flower wrap around ring that I also purchased at H&M, same day I bought my snake wrap around ring lol.

It was a good day :) Have a lovely and safe weekend everyone!

Jennifer Lopez - I Luh Ya Papi (Explicit) ft. French Montana

I put it down for a brother like you
Give it to you right in the car, that's you
We can first give you some of this, that's you
And you're all loving that J.Lo, true

Hold up, I can get you thrown up
Pull your trigger, go and get your gun up
All the time I hear her talk
Put a pin in it, now I'm ready, let it rock
Keep it number 1, that's easy mathematics
Keep it number 1, baby, ain't no static
Got that hourglass for you, baby, look at these legs
No brakes, go green, no red
If you wanna kill the body, gotta start with the head
Put it on you, I'mma need about 4-5 beds
Cause I love my papi

I didn't see it
But I see it now
I think I love you
And I need you now
Ain't had none like you in a while

I luh ya papi, I luh ya papi
I luh ya luh ya luh ya papi

I put it down for a brother like you
Give it to you right in the car, that's you
We can first give you some of this, that's you
And you're all loving that J.Lo, true

All day, 24 hour
Feeling like I want one when it's crowded
If you wanna hear your name, I shout it
Boy, you the shit, go and take a power shower
And I'm feeling like it's me and you, I don't doubt it
You can drop it how you want, I ain't trying to call Miley
I'm loving me some you
Started from the bottom, baby, then we went roof
Cause I love my papi

I didn't see it
But I see it now
I think I love you
And I need you now
Ain't had none like you in a while

I luh ya papi, I luh ya papi
I luh ya luh ya luh ya papi
I luh ya papi

Get up my papi
I luh ya luh ya luh ya papi

[French Montana]
I love you, mami, I-I love you, mami
Baby, you the shit, I-I love you, mami
Shorty got me catching feelings
And that rave drop reaching for the ceiling
Southside Bronx, Teterboro, just overseas
Take the pants out here, drop to her knees
Oh my, I'm a don like Omar
Speed it up slow ma, throw it back, throw my
Rock-rock Gators like mother chords players
You can hate to love us, you can love to hate us
From the bottom it been real
From the bottom shorty been trill
And even though we made it to the top
Still J.Lo from the-the the block
Ey, I love you, mami, I love you, mami
Baby, you the shit, I-I love you, mami

I think I love just who you are
We haven't grown apart
This is just the start where life begin a way to the end
And we started as friends but boy I do love

I luh ya papi, I luh ya papi
I luh ya luh ya luh ya papi
I luh ya papi
I luh ya luh ya luh ya papi
I luh ya papi

Distressed Nail Design

Last night, I decided to try another nail tutorial from Chalkboard Nails. The design I picked is called Distressed Nail Art (Punk/Grungy Effect) of course my outcome was not as perfect as hers, but I think I did a good job. Here is my version of the distressed nail tutorial.

oseawey-nailpolishcolorsColors I used:
- White
- Neon Pink
- Green
- Purple
- Black

Step #1 Start by painting your entire nails with the White Nail Polish as the base coat.
oseawey-step1

The trick (technique) for the following steps is that you wipe almost all of the polish off from the brush and then use the almost-dry brush to apply uneven swipes of polish.

Step #2 Follow up with the Neon Pink Nail Polish and paint uneven swipes on all your nails, using the "almost dry brush technique".
oseawey-step2

Step #3 Use the Green Nail Polish and paint more uneven swipes on all your nails using the "almost dry brush technique". Try to leave some white space for the rest of the colors.
oseawey-step3

Step #4 Use the Purple Nail Polish and paint more uneven swipes on all your nails using the "almost dry brush technique".
oseawey-step4

Step #5 Finally use the Black Nail Polish and paint more uneven swipes on all your nails, you might not have more white room for it, its okay you can overlap, but make sure to wipe the brush as much so that black polish does not overpower the rest of the colors and you are done!

Polka Dots and Stripes

Todays Tuesday's outfit can be pretty much like some friends we all might have at some point of our life's. Some round (Polka Dots) meaning they been there for you all around, others straight (Stripes) meaning they been there for you at one point and then they keep going forward with their life's and finally squared (Plaid) meaning very closed minded. I have no idea how I associated a trend/pattern garment to a type of friend, but I guess its coming from lately realizing who matters and who doesn't in my personal life. That said; here is a little summary of what I wore today.

Tuesday outfit, consists of only one piece I purchased from Forever21 last week, it is a Linen Polka Dot Top $14.80

A linen tee featuring an all over polka dot print with round neckline, short cuffed sleeves, slight high-low hemline and very lightweight.

I paired it up with a striped red sweater, black legging pants, my plaided red shoes and for accessories I used a gold OMG necklace.

Now that I think about it, this is my first polka dot tee I have ever own. I should get more, they make me feel bubbly, like all my Polka Dot friends :)

10 Day Marriage Challenge

While browsing a few fashion blogs, I came across this post. It has nothing to do with fashion and I have no idea how I ended up there but I was glad I did, so glad that I am now sharing it on my own blog.

This post is mainly a small project or lets call it an assignment for couples. Whats the assignment about? The assignment is called The 10 Day Married Challenge is a fun and enlightening way for couples to learn more about each other, in a way that both grow as a person, and strengthened their relationship. Its an eye opener!

The Assignment: Spend an hour or so going over your nightly "Top 10". No matter how much you think you know about each other, this process is enlightening/shocking/humbling all in one. The way to go about this is to set a time (which could be "after the kids go to bed") and discuss your answers for an hour or so. You can either write your answers down, right before you meet or throughout the day. But they have to be written down before the scheduled time.

10 Day Marriage Challenge



Day 1- What are your Top 10 favorite characteristics about one another? Why? (wife writes 10 for her husband. And the husband will write 10 for his wife)

Day 2- What are your Top 10 favorite characteristics about yourself? Why? (Wife writes about herself. Husband writes about himself)

I am not married but I am in a two year relationship. I know that peoples life's are busy and hectic, at least ours is, so we decided to bend one of the rules, instead of doing one per day, we will do one per week. Give it a try!

We are starting this assignment tonight :)

Talk is Cheap...

As Urban Dictionary puts it, Talk is Cheap is a phrase used to indicate an individuals inclination to verbalize opinions, stances, or other traits and subsequent reluctance to act upon said traits.

Talk is cheap

It's Monday again! Here we go, another day another dollar and another outfit. The good side of this particular Monday is that; I get to wear new clothes! that I bought from Forever21 last week. Noticing some recent trends, I put together this very comfortable and chill outfit which consists of the following pieces.

1) Forever21 Talk Is Cheap Tee
A heathered tee with "Talk Is Cheap" graphic it has a round neckline, raw cut short sleeves and hem and very lightweight. $13.80

2) I am also using an old denim long sleeve shirt on top, just to cover the breeze from this morning.

3) Forever21 Garden Daze Leggings
A pair of leggings with allover floral print it has an elasticized waist, and is also very lightweight. $10.80

4) For shoes I stuck to my blue converse and for accessories a blue rosary and tahari round sunglasses.

I noticed I am using light colors, pastels mainly, which are also fun, I guess it gives me a very different look, since I always stick to darker palettes. Change is fun!

F21 Order Arrived, Excitement!

On, Friday I came home to this! My Forever21 online order arrived, usually it takes one or two business days to get to my home, since I live in San Diego, and I believe their shipments come from Los Angeles.

I got 6 shirts, 2 leggings 1 long dress, 1 blazer and got my boyfriend a T-shirt. Although I am thinking on returning the dress and exchanging one pair of leggings. Over all it was a good purchase. I am excited to wear all of it and share it!

Beautifully Ordinary

Here is a picture from the Monthly Photo Challenge I do on Instagram. This photo is for Day 16, Beautifully Ordinary of the month of March.

At the park on a swing

This weekend we decided to go to a picnic at the park with my boyfriends friend and family. The park had a few baseball fields for people to play a public library about a block away and a playground for the kids, of course the playground had swings and I love swings.

Here is a little Instagram Video I did of me on the swings, a lot of my friends told me it reminded them of a "horror" movie trailer. I can see why, Do you?

I whip my hair back and forth

So, my friend Christy was testing a new app she downloaded to her iPhone, so like the good friend I am, I posed for her and we used my hair as the focal point; we only tried it once and it worked. Perfect timing don't you think?

ps: You can see the gif image I created with pictures from Glitche app.GifBoom & Glitche Applications post

Shopping Online...

Get Excited!



Get excited my email says! I did some shopping at my usual and favorite online store; Forever21.com Every time I start browsing I say to myself, I don't need to buy more clothes, I have plenty and some even brand new, they even still have the tags on. Why have I not wear them? Well I just haven't found the perfect occasion or the mood to wear them. I usually repeat my clothes for work, sometimes I feel adventurous and put a cute outfit for work, but for me to go and sit 8 hours of my day in front of a computer? I feel like the outfit needs more appreciation than that lol.

But lets be realistic, what girl EVER believes that their closet is fine and needs NO more clothes? Who? Well, at least not me! So, after a few hours of looking at all of their new arrivals and woman's clothing and I mean all of it! I ended up making some purchases; a large $$$ purchase that is lol.

I then receive a follow up email confirming my most recent purchase, the header reads: Get Excited! Okay, let me clarify that, for one second. Before seeing those two words, I go through an online shopping process.

Osea Wey, Shopping Online Process:

1) I usually wait for websites to introduce their new merchandise for the new season, so basically they update their inventory, most times they put all or some of their "old" inventory on SALE!

2) I create a Wish List. So when I am browsing I add the item not to my shopping cart, but to my "Wish List" this serves two purposes for me, 1) I don't see the total on my shopping cart and freak out then remove items or not buy anything. 2) Wish List you can share it with people who are looking to give you a gift etc.

3) After I feel I have gone through the entire store and added items to my Wish List, I logout and continue my day.

4) I probably let one or two days go by if I am really good even a week go by, and then I login again. This serves ME a BIG purpose; but it can also be a downer for some people. When I log back in after a few days, I find that some of my Wish List items are out of stock or no longer available, or to my surprise some of the items are on sale thats EVEN better!

5) Then I review my Wish List again. One by one, I decide if I really like it and I want it or what was I thinking? then remove it. I usually get lucky and end up with a satisfied list of items.

6) Finally I start adding items to Shopping Cart.

Now, finally I have arrived at the Checkout Page, where I enter my shipping address and billing info, by the time I have to click on the button "CHECKOUT" so that my credit card gets charged, I have a mini anxiety attack, I look away for a second or two while I click on that button, by the time I look at the monitor again the order has been process and a Thank You message is displaying in my monitor.

This is where I stop and think; ok, I just spend $$$ yes. I did, but then I say; You know what? It's okay! I work 9 to 5 every day of the week, plus on top of that I work from home on my freelance projects, and yes I can afford to buy myself clothes once in a while, more like every month lol. The way I see it is, I deserve to buy myself whatever it is I want as long as I work hard at it and all of my other responsibilities are taken care of and I still got $ in the bank.

So to that I say; Yes! Forever21 Yes I am excited! :)

Tell me how do you feel when you buy clothes online or at your local store? Do you have any tricks? Do you feel guilty? or You could care less? Do you buy your clothes with your hard earn money or do you have an allowance or parents, husband etc? Share your shopping experience with me.

Miley Cyrus on my feet

Today I wore this chick #MileyCyrus on my feet! Okay not literally but I did wear these cool sick ass socks that have Miley Cyrus infamous sticking tongue out pose printed on them. I found these suckers at WhoCaresNyc? which has an intense selection of very unique clothing and accessories. At WhoCaresNYC all items are handmade and one of a kind.

I ordered a pair of Miley Cyrus and Ryan Gosling socks (my platonic love by the way) I got to admit, it is a little over priced but if you really want it, you got to have it; Right? and I believe they have pretty awesome products that are worth while waiting for and paying for!

All orders take between 1-6 weeks so wait patiently if you are going to order from them, oh and also they don't do any refunds, exchanges are okay except on bodysuits (I can see why..eeeww lol) and they claim they ship anywhere on Earth!

We're smilin' out of fear..

"Tennis Court"

Don't you think that it's boring how people talk
Making smart with their words again, well I'm bored
Because I'm doing this for the thrill of it, killin' it
Never not chasing a million things I want
And I am only as young as the minute is full of it
Getting pumped up on the little bright things I bought
But I know they'll never own me
(Yeah)

Baby be the class clown
I'll be the beauty queen in tears
It's a new art form showing people how little we care (yeah)
We're so happy, even when we're smilin' out of fear
Let's go down to the tennis court, and talk it up like yeah (yeah)

Pretty soon I'll be getting on my first plane
I'll see the veins of my city like they do in space
But my head's filling up fast with the wicked games, up in flames
How can I fuck with the fun again, when I'm known
And my boys trip me up with their heads again, loving them
Everything's cool when we're all in line for the throne
But I know it's not forever
(Yeah)

Baby be the class clown
I'll be the beauty queen in tears
It's a new art form showing people how little we care (yeah)
We're so happy, even when we're smilin' out of fear
Let's go down to the tennis court, and talk it up like yeah (yeah)

It looked alright in the pictures (yeah)

Getting caught's half of the trip though, isn't it? (yeah)
I fall apart with all my heart (yeah)
And you could watch from your window (yeah)
[laughs]
And you can watch from your window

Baby be the class clown
I'll be the beauty queen in tears
It's a new art form showing people how little we care (yeah)
We're so happy, even when we're smilin' out of fear
Let's go down to the tennis court, and talk it up like yeah (yeah)

And talk it up like yeah (yeah)
And talk it up like yeah (yeah)
Let's go down to the tennis court, and talk it up like yeah (yeah)
And talk it up like yeah (yeah)
And talk it up like yeah (yeah)
Let's go down to the tennis court, and talk it up like yeah
(Yeah)

Kimono Tuesday!

I finally chose to wear a Free Spirit Kimono I bought from Forever21.com. It is from their Love 21 line (which runs about half size bigger than regular forever21 items) this Kimono is a sheer woven kimono featuring a floral pattern which is open-front and 3/4 sleeves very unlined and lightweight.

I honestly don't know what I was waiting for to wear this Kimono, maybe nicer weather? Not, that today was a super nice sunny day, I mean don't get me wrong, every day regardless of the climate IS A NICE DAY; but to sum it up today was a little chilly and sunny but it was still good for me to use this Kimono since I work in an office.

I paired this Kimono, with the usual dark jeans, white short sleeve shirt and my; what I call "old school boy brown shoes" I felt comfortable and free spirit, although my mood today was a little down, but seeing all these pretty colors cheered me up, oh! and when I got home and took my Kimono off, I noticed I had left the tag on, which brought a smile/laugh to my "down" face.

Over all it was a good Tuesday, Good night!

Daylight saving Monday!

Today was not the usual Monday, a typical Monday is waking up maybe a little late, feeling lazy, no excitement because the weekend is gone and now you have to start a long working week, on top of all that usual Monday routine stuff, we had the daylight saving time change; meaning we had to push our clocks an hour ahead!

So that being said, I didn't really put a lot of thought into my outfit today; just grabbed my black fitted skinny pants, a tie dye short sleeve shirt and my cute red plaid shoes, and did I mentioned I flat ironed my hair the night before?

I had a good Monday overall, not to much traffic in the morning or evening, didn't feel sleepy, nice weather, got home on a decent time from work, had dinner and watched TV with my handsome boyfriend.

What about you? Did you have a good daylight saving Monday?

Aqua Green & Purple Gradient Nails

Saturday night while watching movies I decided to try a little nail design challenge from Chalkboard Nails.

The design I selected was Aqua and Purple Gradient although I don't own those exact colors, I tried my best to use something as close as possible.

Nail Polishes I used:
-Green
-Light Purple
-Black & White Clearly Spotted

I started with painting the entire nail light purple, then I added the green polish on top and with the black and white clearly spotted nail polish, I tried my best to spread the colors to give it a gradient effect, then finally covered it with a clear coat of nail polish and done!

Not bad for my first try.

Selfie Animation

Too many selfies may land you like this mutilated animation.

This new animation by Andy Martin is a humorous 60-second warning about self obsession. He made this short for the “Character Selfies” project at Pictoplasm.

In the video below the pickle-looking character faces many problems while attempting your typical selfie. Some of his selfie symptoms include growing excessive hair, laying an egg, loosing his soul, and even death…

What’s the worst thing to happen to you during a selfie?
