1. Azature’s Black Diamond Manicure
With a mind-blowing price tag of $250,00, Azature’s Black Diamond Manicure breaks the record of world’s most expensive beauty treatment.

It’s fall fashion made for your nails – Essie’s fall 2013 collection has got it all for you this season. Her latest collection is a mix of glossy shades and metallic dual shades.
For the Twill of it is my favorite shade from the collection. I thought I should start with my favorite first this time. It’s a metallic dual tone of magenta and gun-metal. I love the way it reflects in the light, changing from one shade to the other. At times you can even get a glimpse of a greenish metallic tone as well.
Vested Interest is some what of a murky green color. It reminds me of floral – you know that green cube at the bottom of a flower bouquet vase. It’s also slightly reminiscent of OPI’s You Don’t Know Jacques with a little bit of olive mixed in.
The Lace is On - a lovely metallic magenta shade. It goes on smooth and evenly. I noticed that the metallic shades were easier to apply that the glossy polishes.
Cashmere Bathrobe is one of the darker shades in the fall collection. It has a glossy finish with a faint metallic shimmer. It’s like a darker version of Vested Interest.

Well I suppose cold weather is creeping up on us again -_-
I get excited about fall fashion, but not about the temperature dropping. Oh Summer, why must you leave us so quickly! As the days get shorter, some beauty brands are well into their fall product launches. My nail salon has stocked up its fall collection and this week I decided to try OPI Keeping Suzy at Bay from their San Francisco collection.
Keeping Suzy at Bay is a glossy deep ink blue – it’s like a pen exploded on my nails! I wasn’t ready to rock a dark burgundy yet – just like we don’t wear white after labor day, I don’t wear burgundy shades before it! This blue works for an end-of-summer-look because even though it’s a dark color, it still has a pop of brightness. It reminds me of a beautiful summertime night sky. Great color, can’t wait to try more from this whopping 15-shade collection.

This past weekend, I enjoyed a mini summer getaway at the Jersey Shore. Beach, boardwalk, and beauty were all on the menu and I just couldn’t wait to dive-in! Here’s how I brought my weekend beauty routine to the beach.
Soak up some moisture
After you take your dip in the ocean; saturate your strands with a deep conditioner. Just make sure you rinse out the salt water first. Apply a good amount of product and clip your hair up. Now sit back and relax under your umbrella with a copy of your favorite magazine! Rinse hair out after 20 minutes or when you get home. I like to use Alterna Caviar Replenishing Moisture Masque ($42, alternahaircare.com)
Buff away the day
Make the sand work for you. Next time you hit the beach, exfoliate your legs and heels with wet sand. Just mix salt water with sand and boom – you have an all natural body scrub! Make sure you’re not too rough when using it and as a precaution; don’t exfoliate freshly shaved skin.
P.S. Always make sure to reapply SPF though out the day.

This past Sunday, I had the amazing opportunity of speaking at the Her Campus National Intercollegiette Conference in New York City. I was invited to speak in the How to Make Your Blog a Powerhouse panel. It was so nice to share my blogging secrets with other aspiring bloggers and to get to meet some of my readers.
The event as a whole was very organized and well orchestrated. Check-in was a breeze and breakfast was delish! As soon as I got there I received my awesome fully loaded swag bag with tons of goodies from all the sponsors. Then I was off to the main ballroom to hear the morning’s keynote speaker, executive editor of Parents magazine, Chandra Turner.
Chandra was very refreshing and talked about her organization Ed2010.com and mainly how to make it in the magazine industry. If you’re aspiring to work within this industry then Ed2010.com is a must for you! They post all sorts of media jobs/internships, they hold fun happy hours, and even offer a trust fund scholarship to help students cover the cost of summer internships in the city.
After her great opening speech, I was whisked away to my conference room to get ready to share my blogging journey! I loved engaging with the audience. Everyone had great questions and I felt like the entire room got to have a conversation with each other. This experience was so special, I was able to really reflect on The Beauty Edge while preparing for the conference. Life can get so busy sometimes, that we often forget all the little milestones that brought us to where we are. Speaking at the conference was definitely a large milestone for me. I hope my tips and insights inspired others to follow their passions in life. All in all it was a great day!
Now I want to talk about my favorite finds in my goodie bag! I love the Viva Dress Up lip balm, can’t wait to try the Intel Ink nail polish, already had my morning protein smoothie in my Her Campus cup, and I’m delightfully intrigued by the mini Harvey Prince Ageless EDP! What a mouthful – I know! I might consider posting about the polish and perfume, let’s see what happens! I’m also digging the LeSportsac scarf and the Unreal goodies. I enjoyed some on the train ride home, yum!
I’d like to thank Her Campus for letting me be a part of #HerConference! Truly an amazing event! Already looking forward to next year.
