The Winter Palace

New York City is the place to be around this time of year. My favorite part are the window displays. This year, Saks Fifth Avenue had displays of the six icy wonders of the world and the seventh being the Winter Palace building at Saks Fifth Avenue in lights above the face of the building.

  1. The Winter Palace at Saks Fifth Avenue
  2. The Great Barrier Reef
  3. The Icy Eiffel Tower
  4. The Sub-Zero Sphinx
  5. The Frosty Taj Mahal
  6. The Great Wintry Wall of China
  7. The Ice-Cold Colosseum

Each display portrayed some kind of icon in this generation. I love the Marchesa Bridal and all the details that went into each window. Don’t miss out on the light show at Saks if you’re there!

Keep on sparkling, xo!



Sleek Saturdays


Hope everyone had a great weekend! My weekend officially started on Saturday after work. I kept my makeup look simple here trying to focus on my face with a dramatic lip (of course my favorite, Sad Girl). I used my Soft & Gentle highlighter from MAC and my L.A. Girl concealer to lightly contour my face. I like to keep my Saturday nights winding down at home with Netflix and giving myself a manicure a nail session. Last night, I winded down cleaning my brushes. I usually clean my brushes using my Rinse-off Foaming Cleanser from Clinique. It always gives you a great feeling of clean brushes!

I hope everyone has a great start to their week!

Keep on sparkling, xo!

Happy December!

I honestly can’t believe that it’s already December! I have been dying over Anastasia Beverly Hills’ liquid lipsticks. I hate having to reapply my lipstick throughout the day but with ABH, it lasts throughout my entire work day without me having to apply more on. The product is pigmented and really gives the full color. One of my favorites is Sad Girl; it’s the perfect color for this season!


Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas!

We can all relate to getting excited for the holidays and getting to dress up. But the big question is, what are you going to where? So many options to choose from but which option is it going to be? Something casual or something dressy?

If your main concern is wanting to feel comfortable after eating a feast, go with a cardigan or an oversized sweater and pair it with a cute skirt; best way to look cute and feel the most comfiest! If you’re going to be attending a dinner party and want to look your absolute best and festive, go with a cute dress and accessorize to compliment the outfit!




What are you going to wear for Thanksgiving?

Happy Thanksgiving! Keep on sparkling, xo!

Bold & Beautiful

Demi Lovato took us back to the roaring 20s in her Lorena Sarbu and those dark lips – absolutely stunning! All white? Zuri Hall glowed in that dress and with just enough sparkles, Carrie Underwood nailed it with her Elle Madi cape dress. Lastly, Gigi Hadid…WOW! I can keep going on but I’m going to just let these beauties speak for themselves.

Here are a few of many best dressed from the AMAs!



Who was your favorite best dressed? Keep on sparkling, xo!

Dream Big.

Often times, we find ourselves at a point in life where we’re not feeling our best. At times like this I take a step back and reevaluate my life. Someone once told me that doing what you love the most will be the hardest thing. Just remember that your hardest times will lead to the greatest moments of your life. It will all be worth it in the end.

Looking at this picture always reminds me of why I started Sheer and Sparkles; simply because I love it. Don’t ever settle for something you’re not happy doing. Keep on striving for the best.


Don’t forget, keep on sparkling! Xo

Strike A Pose.

If there’s anyone that always looks stunning on the red carpet, I would have to say it’s Kendall Jenner! She’s the definition of fierce. 

I’ve always loved Kendall’s sense of style, whether it’s her casual outfits when she runs errands or her stunning outfits while she strikes a pose on the red carpet.

I can’t get over how gorgeous she looks from the AMAs tonight. Her makeup, hair and outfit are on point. Not to mention that she’s killing the bangs. Definitely one of my favorites from the red carpet tonight!
