Bourgie Buys

[tweetmeme source=”socialitedreams” only_single=false]

So in a previous post you guys commented and tweeted about your favorite low-cost yet effective drugstore finds.  This time around, with noses in the air, let’s get bourgie!  By that I mean, what are your snobby must have purchases, the designer skincare/makeup/hair products that you REFUSE to deviate to a lower cost item for?

For me, it’s perfumes.  I may have a body splash every now and again from Bath and Body Works, but best believe that the perfume game is on and proper 🙂  When I’m feeling happy and the sun is shining, I’ll break out with DKNY Red Delicious (smells of ripe sweet red apples, as you’d imagine by looking at it) or maybe Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue (clean fragrance with a touch of tartness). To exude quiet sophistication and femininity, I adore Prada Infusion d’Iris (a soft, light floral that begs to be worn on Park Avenue as a lady who lunches).   For pure sex appeal and feeling undeniably ravishing, I am a fiend for Dior Addict, truly addicted.  I was hipped to that scent by my girl JayBendy and have been hooked since first sniff.  Those are a couple of the many perfumes loitering my vanity.

So do tell, what are your snobby buys?  What MUST be designer, must be high end, MUST be top notch?  OR what are some high end items that you are just dying to have?  We’re waiting to hear, darling.

Good start to new year

This new year is starting smashingly 🙂  Went to dinner on new years eve at Spiaggia and it was AMAZING.  So yummy!  Appetizer course was mozzarella drizzled in a honey type sauce with some type of fruit (kumquat?) chopped next to it and amazing prosciutto.  I felt like the movie Ratatouille where the mouse had the flavors exploding in his mouth in bursts of jazz and colors!  It was THAT good.  Pasta course was a butternut squash filled pasta with fried sage and amaretto sauce, also incredibly delish and my mom’s favorite part of the meal.  Steak  with morel mushrooms and smashed potatoes followed, finished by the creamiest tiramisu ever put together.  WHAT a dinner to start off the night’s activities!  I was already incredibly happy with my makeup and hair, felt good in my outfit, and had on my fly headpiece, lol.  EVERYONE was stopping me and saying that it was gorgeous and that they wanted to party with me because I must be fun, lol.  That was so cool.

Then went to the Signature Room at the John Hancock building’s lounge.  There was a hilarious lady there who was fun and an instant friend.  She was crazy and cool, seated next to us.  I heart her, we clowned hard and didn’t even know each other!  Then there were gorgeous fireworks outside the window which overlooked gorgeous Navy Pier.

Next up, party at our hotel!  We stayed at the Westin that night and finagled our way into the hotel party they were having there.  THAT was pure hilarity, because they were SO wasted!  Some chick fell under her table trying to reach for something, another fell through a sign at the elevator then tried to argue that she wasn’t drunk, barely able to keep her eyes open.  I had too much fun there, cracking the eff up and dancing with my Phy-Phy.  Great new years eve!    Spent the next day shopping and lounging around the Four Seasons hotel where we stayed the next night.  I’m all about luxe surroundings!  Drinks in front of the lounge fireplace was oh so nice, even saw a HOT guy at the bar, but I looked all of 15 with my hello kitty jewelry and yellow sweater, so um yeah, not approaching him! haha. I promise next time to dress for the occasion so that I can have something better to update 😉

I had to do another cowash and twist out when I got home last night because feathers and glitter were in my hair, cramping my style ya know 😉  Woke up today, took it down and WHOA, best twist out ever!  Okay, well I went a little happy with the marula oil spray the night before so it was a tad oily, but other than that?  Your girl was FLY.  It was moisturized, super curly, fun!  My cousins even complimented me on it and they are SO not about natural hair 🙂

snapped on my new lace bow clips and sashayed my happy self out the door to church where I played with my cutie pie god daughter.  She is LEAVING me 😦  Her mom is moving them back to Alabama, I am heartbroken.  I love that lil chocolate drop, she’s so sweet and fun with her fat cheeks.  NEVER cries, just a doll.

Driven for the Good Life

My trip to LA has renewed my vigor and desire for the good life.  My tastes run too rich and lavish to not drive myself to succeed beautifully.  With that said, I am glad that things are starting to roll and I will continue to make moves towards a career and, hopefully soon, a move to Los Angeles.  The great thing is, my mom also wants to move there, which would make me very happy.  That’s one of my best friends, ya know?

So for the new year, I am on a MISSION:

1. Write, write, write….this means, working on my novel, pumping out articles for freelance, updating my blog at least every 2 days, and hopefully finding a job with a magazine or ezine.

2. workout mind and body….If I’m moving to the land of the superficial and expect to write about beauty/fashion, I need to be ON POINT.  I want to get down to size 4, 6 at the most (I’m a 12/14 now).  So that means working out, eating right, getting rid of excuses.  And I will be reading even more.  I already read a lot, but I want to read all of the books that I’ve ever said I wanted to read.  Get my mind right!  

I would suggest the book “How to Become Famous in Two Weeks (or less)” for anyone looking for help on becoming fabulous.  I just read it in LA and it was fantastic.  I also want to read Posh’s book and Kimora Lee Simmon’s.

3. Network, socialize, put forth more effort.  I’m such a laid back person, I need to actively get out and network.  Nothing will be handed to me since I am not a true socialite or possess supermodel looks.  I have to get on the grind, charm my way into fabulosity!

What are some of your new years resolutions?
