summer sault

Since the countdown to the first day of summer begins in 5,4,3,2,1, days.  I am overtly excited to share my SS2012 picks from all of my designer love bugs ─prada, d&g, moschino “cheap and chic and diane von furstenburg!  Happy Saturday! 


gum drops

Lately the weather has been quite confusing, last month our rain consumption was torrential for may; to the point I had to question, “what month are we in?” Now that june has arrived, it seems this soaking trend is following once again. “Could it be the lack of snowflakes we didn’t receive this winter?”, “maybe!”, but it sparks my need for something I haven’t owned since, I’d say, high school ─rain boots!  Which gumdrop shade would you splash in?


flat foot

Ah, j.crew has once again tantalized me with their copious display of ballet flats. These charming flats bring me back to my childhood days as a prima ballerina, but with a colorful, no strings attached twist.  If I had one stylish wish it would be to receive each pair individually boxed and prettified with a whimsy bow, placed on my doorstep, with a powder pink note attached that reads: “to: beenalabella…love, the crew” Hey, a girl can dream big


sugar coated

While most are experimenting with glitter polish on their nails, I am aiming in another direction─ my toes! Their hidden 3 out of 4 seasons, why not adorn them in shimmer for their grand appearance this summer. Add a glittered tropical deep sea hue, and you will have the prettiest pedi in town, defining the true meaning of ─twinkle toes!  Which color would you coat your toes with?


citrus kiss

My Avon representative days have finally come to an end, but I couldn't say good-bye without stocking up on some of the indispensable products. One in particular, is the skin so soft: soft indulgences collection (4 for $12.99 set, $35 value). This citrus-scented combo has such a cool, invigorating and energizing aroma. It comes with a body mist, two body gel crèmes and one shower gel. Talk about a hot deal, right in time for the hot season to come. I can already imagine myself with a sun kissed tan, coated with this alluring staple as my signature summer scent. 


balm baby

I am in the mood to paint my lips in something, let’s say─ bright and crayolish! I have seen the clinique chubby sticks lip balm ($16), on the market for quite some time, and always desired to try them. The colors are super enticing, and it contains moisture boosters such as mango and shea butter, which will leave your puckers soft and smooth. The sticks come in an assortment of bubblegum shades, and since their launch in 2011, they have added 8 new shades to the collection.  So, now I think it is time to invest!  Have you purchased any of the chubby shades? If so, I would love to hear your feedback J


just beachy

Summer will officially begin in 18 days [June 20, 2012] and I am already catching the style wave. Although I embrace high def color all year round, the warm climate calls for sun kissed hues. Like most fashion bloggers, I’ve splashed together a collage of my balmy beach picks for the season to come. What’s on your fun in the sun list?


jelly feet

This past mother’s day, my little sister, kiyana, got me these adorable neon pink jelly sandals from aeropastle. When I first saw them, I was like “these look very similar to a designer pair I had seen”, but I could not reference who the designer was and where I had seen the playful footwear. My first thought was, marc jacobs [my love], because of the colorful letter logo in the insole of the sandal. However, I was wrong; I was recently looking through the June/July 2011 teen vogue issue and flipped to a page that displayed exactly my indication. The mystery label was Italian fashion house─ fendi, I remember when I first laid eyes on them; I was utterly in love, the neon tangerine shade was so fun and electrifying. Thanks sis for my summer essential J.

I am currently seeking some dramatic highlights for my apartment. So far, I have succeeded with a classic outline─ a comfy vintage couch, antique dining room set, white TV stands (living room and bedroom), 60’s style, pale yellow iridescent lamps, with cream colored shades and a stainless steel bedroom set and desk. I found some inspirational photos that I am using as a blueprint for my next purchase(s). Of course, they will contain a winning element of mine ─Colour! What décor looks are you considering?
