Style Icon: Sophia Loren

Before Sophia Vergara, there was Sophia Loren.  Sophia Loren is one of the most beautiful women in the world. She has a beautiful face, wonderful bone structure,perfectly arched eyebrows, full lips and curves for days.
Men obviously love her too. She placed sixth in Playboy's 100 Sexiest Women Of The Century feature! 
I first saw Sophia in the 1995 movie, Grumpier Old Men where she played Walter Mattheus love interest, Maria Sophia Coletta Ragetti. And ever since then, she's been my style icon. From the glamorous dresses, sexy body fitting dresses, to the over sized floppy hats, and to her sky high heels. 
At the age of 80, she is still just as beautiful as ever.


Everything you see I owe to spaghetti. -Sophia Loren


 You have to enjoy life. Always be surrounded by people that you like, people who have a nice conversation. There are so many positive things to think about. -Sophia Loren
 Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.
-Sophia Loren

 You have to be born a sex symbol. You don't become one. If you're born with it, you'll have it even when you're 100 years old. -Sophia Loren
 Sex appeal is fifty percent what you've got and fifty percent what people think you've got. -Sophia Loren

 I think the quality of sexiness comes from within. It is something that is in you or it isn't and it really doesn't have much to do with breasts or thighs or the pout of your lips. -Sophia Loren

 A woman's dress should be like a barbed-wire fence: serving its purpose without obstructing the view. -Sophia Loren
 There is a Fountain of Youth: It is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of the people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age. -Sophia Loren


Of course I have many other classic Hollywood stars that I adore and consider style icons, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly and Vivien Leigh. 
Who do you consider your classic Hollywood style icon?

Every time I need a little inspiration, I get on Pinterest. I love these hot weather hairstyles that I recently discovered while pinning. I hardly ever wear my hair down in the summer, my hair is really long, thick and black so you can imagine how hot it is. So i'm always looking to try new hairstyles to sport in the summer months, these are my favorite pins for summer hair.

H&M for kids

Both of my sons are very fashion forward. With that being said, before I had children I had no idea little boys are so concerned with their appearance. Or maybe they took after us, after all my husband and I put a lot of thought into what we wear. My oldest son Jackson is the worst. If he doesn't like what outfit I pick out for him, he makes sure to let me know. Jameson is the almost as bad, he has to have his hair fixed every time we leave the house. 

Like every other american, I love h&m. There clothes and accessories are super chic and very affordable. It wasn't until last week when I received an H&M catalog in the mail that I realized they sold little boys clothing(be still my beating heart). Like everything else from H&M, its super affordable(cha-ching)! 


These are my favorite looks for the spring collection for boys.


Bare Minerals Beauty and the Beach Review

Last week I cashed in my beauty points on Sephora.com for this lovely sample set by bare minerals. The set is called Beauty and the Beach and it includes 5 pieces for a summer look. The set included marvelous moxie lip gloss in party starter, ready bronzer in the skinny dip, bare minerals ready blush in the natural high, all over face color in pure radiance and a sample of their lash domination mascara. So here is my take on the set: Here it is ladies!
Marvelous Moxie lipgloss in Party Starter- this is a darker, coral and peach color. It was very sticky but it lasted for a few hours. It matched the blush perfectly.
Ready Blush in The Natural High: This blush is a nice peachy pink color, it looks really shimmery in the package but looks more matte when applied. I loved that the color matched the gloss!
Ready Bronzer in The Skinny Dip- I used this to contour and sculpt my face and it turned out beautiful. It matched my skin tone very nicely. Its very similar to the too faced bronzers.
