Currently Coveting: Makeup, Perfume, and Tiffany & Co. items!

I needed a photo for the beginning of this post, so I figured I'd post a photo of myself that I like. :P Anyway, I've decided to add a new feature to my blog called "Currently Coveting," featuring items/things I am liking, hoping to buy, or hoping to save up for. I will be doing these posts with certain themes, and today's themes are perfume, makeup, and some random things from Tiffany & Co. The makeup items are probably the only ones I shall be buying soon; the Tiffany items I am hoping to get eventually, and same for the perfumes. I always find it fun to make wish lists of things, it makes me happy and gives me motivation to work hard and save up money. So, without further ado, let's get started!

"Perfume, like your clothes, can so much express your personality." -Christian Dior, from The Little Dictionary of Fashion

Above are the three perfumes I've purchased/gotten in the past few months - Miss Dior Cherie, Juicy Couture's original scent, and Treson In Love by Lancome. The latter was gifted to my mom, but she is very picky about her perfumes and it was too strong for her, so she gave it to me!

"Quality is essential to elegance. I will always put quality before quantity." -Christian Dior, from The Little Dictionary of Fashion

If you follow me on Twitter, you might have seen me mention buying two cardigans. Well, here they are! (Along with a few other goodies!)

"The best things in life are free; the second best are expensive." -Coco Chanel

I couldn't agree more with the quote I titled this post after. The most important and wonderful things in life are priceless - family, loved ones, friends, your health....but the next best thing after that is most certainly saving up and buying something you've been coveting for a while, like a trip to Spain or a ring you've been reblogging on Tumblr for what feels like years... So, without further ado, let's open these bags! ;)

"To reinvent a newly impeccable you in the most modern of outfits, don’t skip on makeup and be sure to have flawless skin and hair. That will have more impact than expensive clothes.” -Karl Lagerfeld

I bought a few makeup items this month that I'm absolutely in love with.

"I think it is as important for a woman to have beautiful perfume as it is for her to have beautiful clothes." -Christian Dior, from The Little Dictionary of Fashion

I finally ordered a perfume I've been wanting for ages, and at a great price, too!

"I love things that age well - things that don't date, that stand the test of time and that become living examples of the absolute best." -Giorgio Armani

I love the Salvatore Ferragamo bow. I love it on the Varina flats; I love it on the Vara pumps; I love it on everything! A pair of Vara pumps is definitely a purchase I am going to make sometime soon, and I decided to get this headband to match them. :)

"Sunglasses are like eyeshadow. They make everything look younger and prettier." -Karl Lagerfeld

 I am obsessed with huge sunglasses. I have a gray pair from Fendi, a tortoise pair from Dolce & Gabbana, and a black pair from Oscar de la Renta. A white pair was on my wishlist for an incredibly long time. Ideally, I wanted to add either a pair of Chanels or a pair of Diors to my collection, but I didn't think I'd be lucky enough to snag either brand at a good price. I was on the lookout for any oversized white sunglasses though, as I think they're a summer essential. I got these around a month ago, and I was so pleased!

Handwriting tag!

Somebody on Tumblr messaged me and asked me to do the handwriting tag, so I decided to quickly answer the questions for it (I altered it a bit) before I went to go shower. =) A clearer photo with readable questions and answers is behind the cut!

"I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick." -Audrey Hepburn

I've read that the quote in my title is miss-attributed to Audrey Hepburn and that it is actually from a poem. It's still a lovely quote though! This post is going to be about all of the nail polishes I've picked up in the past two months. I've purchases a few O.P.I. colors and some Chanel polishes, so without further ado....

"Some girls are just born winners." -Juicy Couture

Hmmm, what could be in the box? ;)

"I decided, very early on, just to accept life unconditionally; I never expected it to do anything special for me, yet I seemed to accomplish far more than I had ever hoped. Most of the time it just happened to me without my ever seeking it." -Audrey Hepburn

I wasn't really expecting to buy anything today, but isn't that always the case? :P

"A shoe has so much more to offer than just to walk." -Christian Louboutin

I was terribly bored the other day, so I decided to paint some Loubies. I am horrendous at drawing shoes, so I thought these turned out fairly decent, considering my general ineptitude with shoe art. I painted them in watercolor. Not bad for an hour's work, I think. :)

"Anything you do, work or pleasure, you have to do it with zest." -Christian Dior, from "The Little Dictionary of Fashion"

ANNOUNCEMENT: I changed my blogspot URL. It is now, like my tumblr ( This post is going to be devoted to all of my latest Juicy Couture purchases. I know a lot of people find Juicy to be tacky/young, but I really adore their clothing items and some of their accessories. Their velour sweatsuits may not be fashion forward, but they are extremely comfortable for lounging around. That being said, I wouldn't be caught dead with a velour logo handbag. I do love everything I purchased from them, though!
