Beauty And Sweet Treats From Japan!

Hey Nubians,

My sister-in-law Kaori was in Japan for a few months and she bought me back all these cute gifts. From beauty products, to a sushi pen (what!), to an intensive eye care mask, gummi candy and more. Little gifts often get me super happy and excited inside. I always love little trinkets and trying out new things. Japan has a way of taking regular items and making them very Kawaii! Super cute.

In the photo you'll see pastel colored rice, which is ideal for creating cute characters for food art! A Pom Pom Purin mirror and point pads made with Macademia Nut Oil that you can use for your forehead, cheeks, under the eyes, etc. 3 different types of gummi candy. A sushi pen, Japanese mountain coasters. Matcha Green Tea chewy candy (which is delicious). Also TonyMoly intense care eye pads. 

The sushi pen is so rad. I believe that's salmon on it. 

I'm really excited to try out the TonyMoly Intense Care Eye Mask. I've seen TonyMoly products at Urban Outfitters but I've never tried any of them. I'll make sure to review soon. 

I'm not much for food art... I don't think I have the skills haha but I will surely try to make something cute with this rice. 

Just thought I'd share some of these with you! So excited to open this stuff up!

Walk Like An Egyptian Style.

Hey Nubians,

Always remember you can draw inspiration from anywhere! In this outfit of that day look, you'll see little hints of Egypt and the fierce Cleopatra.

Siempre recuerde que puede inspirarse en cualquier lugar! En este conjunto, verá un poco de inspiración de Egipto y de la feroz Cleopatra.

In this little black dress look, the golden triangles on my belt from Zara remind me of ancient Egyptian patterns. The gla.MAR.ous chain headband reminds me of something Cleopatra may have worn herself, royal and beautiful. 

En este pequeño vestido negro Mira, los triángulos de oro en mi cinturón de Zara me recuerdan antiguos patrones egipcios. El pieza del pelo gla.MAR.ous me recuerda algo que puede haber usado Cleopatra ella misma, real y hermoso.

Random touches of gold throughout the outfit where also something I focused on. 

Toques de oro en el conjunto. 

A little leopard never hurt nobody right? 

Un poco de leopard nunca hizo daño a nadie ¿no?

Profile shot. Wavy hair and a touch of little braids. Simple and pretty hair for the Summer season. 

Perfil. Cabello ondulado y un toque de trenzas. Sencilla y bonito pelo para la temporada de verano.

Cute Manicures From I Scream Nails.

Hello Nubians,

Leave it to social media to get me smitten with #ManicureMonday. Thanks to instagram and tumblr, I'm constantly bumping into so much nail inspiration. Sometimes unfortunately...

For The Love Of Flats! A Shoe Poem.

Hello Nubians,

You know what I love? The feeling of fashion and comfort. I love cool, edgy flats. Whether they're shoes or sneakers, flats rock! Sometimes people frown upon flats because they don't compliment your body as much as heels and give you the height boost. Well they shouldn't! Flats now-a-days are super edgy and cool. Below read my Dr Seuss-ish type poem haha for my love of flats.

¿Sabes lo que me gusta? El sentimiento de la moda y la comodidad. Me encanta zapatos bajitos cheveres. Si son zapatos o zapatillas de deporte. Muchas veces a las mujeres no les gusta los zapatos bajitos porque no complementan tu cuerpo tanto como los talones y no dan el impulso de altura. Pues no deberían! 

For The Love Of Flats.
Though I love the height I get from my heels
It still doesn't beat how my flats make me feel!
Still looking stylish and incredibly chic,
And I barely get blisters on my feet! (cough, cough heels)
I can skip through the park and never get tired
and though at times I wish I felt a bit higher...
Don't get me wrong,
Heels are fabulous, but they still don't defeat
The winning sensation of pretty flats on my feet. 
-Nubia Mejia

Now don't get me twisted, I love a bad ass pair of heels as much as the next chic. But especially for Spring/Summer, my love of flat shoes and sneakers elevates to new levels.

Below check out some of my favorites I've been spying on from some online shops! Some edgy, some cute. Perhaps they will fulfill your shopping needs.

Abajo pueden ver algunos zapatos que me parecen super lindos y coquetos.
