Hello!

hi! I feel like every post I write, I have an excuse or I just say ‘I’m sorry’ for not writing. So today I won’t say anything since it’s just understood and just catch you all up! I have something exciting I’m going to announce soon so stay tuned for that! I always say I’m going to be more consistent and I really do want to be but life just gets in the way and I just put it off. And I also don’t know what I really want to write about. I have a few posts in mind that I’ll do but what is it you all like to read about? Let me know! Alright that’s all for now! I’ll see you shortly in my next post.

30 More Days ‘Til…Spring!

spring

Well hello there! I don’t know where you are in the world, but where I am, it’s a cold, snowy day. I know it has been such a long time since I have put up a new post. I could say I have been busy, but to be honest, I’ve chosen other things to do. But this snowy day has created the perfect motivation for me to get back into the blogging world and think about spring! So for today’s post I’m going to show some spring trends and where you can get them.

1) Saddle Bags!

I am probably most excited about this trend, considering how much I love all sorts of bags. This purse is so cute, not too big or too small, and perfect to keep your daily essentials in. But it’s also $1,400. http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/chloe-medium-marcie-leather-crossbody-bag/3822709?cm_cat=datafeed&cm_ite=634267_1&cm_pla=women:bags:handbag&cm_ven=Google_Product_Ads_pla_online&mr:referralID=7769a966-b7b6-11e4-82f7-001b2166c2c0

So I found an alternative that’s just as cute!

It’s from Daily Look and is more affordable at $49.99. So whether you want to splurge or save, I think this style of bag is a must-have for this season! Get it here: http://www.dailylook.com/p/Bags/DAILYLOOK-Classic-Saddlebag-Purse/96248.html

2) Pastels/ Florals! (of course)

It wouldn’t be spring if pastels or florals weren’t still trendy. Yet thank goodness they both are! I am excited for both trends, as usual, and love how they twist the same style each year to make it just a bit different yet just as cute.

And again, you don’t have to splurge to wear this trend.

This lavender skirt is such a cute style with a sort of princess vibe to it. The crop top adds a trendy look to it, or you can add a more flow-y, cream colored top. Shop for it here: https://www.lulus.com/products/beauty-and-the-pleats-lavender-vegan-leather-midi-skirt/198850.html

This site also has many choices, so be sure to check it out for different styles and colors!

3) Fringe!

I am excited for this trend. You can definitely choose to go edgy or feminine with this look.

This skirt can be either subtle or showy, just depending on how you want to style it! But if you want to go more subtle yet keep the trend, try this cream colored top, also from H & M.

And if that is still too much for you, try a small crossbody bag with just a tad bit of fringe to it!

This purse is from Rebecca Minkoff. I just love her bags and think this one is absolutely adorable and worth the splurge! 🙂

So there you go! Those are just a couple of this year’s trends, and I can’t wait until it’s warm enough so I can start wearing pastels and florals, my usual favorite. 🙂

Hope you have a great day, wherever you are, and thanks for stopping by!

Until next time…

Favorite Mascara!

Hello Everyone!

I know, I know… It has been two months since I last updated my blog! I have been slacking a lot, but I am going to try to do my best in keeping this more up to date and current with the fashion world. But for today, I thought I would share with you all my current favorite mascara. If you know me at all, you know how much I love mascara and am always trying to find that ‘perfect one’. Unfortunately, there is no such thing as perfect, but this mascara is pretty darn close to that! It’s less than $10 at any drugstore and gives great length and volume to your lashes. I highly recommend it if you are on the hunt for a new mascara. It’s Rimmel’s Scandal Eyes Rockin’ Mascara. I have been using it for probably a month now and it is still working just as great as it was day 1! As with all mascara’s (at least with me), the first use is a little bit watery and harder to apply, but with each application it gets easier and builds better. I’ll leave a link to it below if you want to check it out!

Random Favorite!

Hello everybody! 

So I thought I would rave about this random product I have been loving lately. I got is as a sample from Sephora last week and have been using it daily. I love it! It’s a natural exfoliant that leaves my skin feeling really soft and glowing. It’s called Facial Radiance Polish from First Aid Beauty. The sample came in this tiny little bottle and it has lasted over a week! You just use a tiny little bit on your face and it works wonders. The product is a little bit more pricy ($24) so I am kind of hesitant to buy the full bottle, but I know that it will be great investment. Most products break out my face, but this one has natural ingredients and it has been wonderful to use. So I thought I would just throw that out there and let you know about this product in case you were on the hunt for a new facial wash. I will link it down below in case you want to try it for yourself! Have a great day and I will hopefully talk to you soon! 🙂

5 Must Haves!

I was asked by the people http://www.mancrates.com/   to do a post about items I couldn’t live without. Those over at Man Crates make buying gifts for men easy yet creative! Complete with your own crowbar, you can order actual crates of goodies based on what type of man they’re for! I think this idea is awesome since I find that it is quite difficult buying gifts for guys. And if you think the same, this online store has the answers for you! So go check them out! http://www.mancrates.com/ So, getting back, I don’t think that I have ever shared with you what I couldn’t live without. Honestly, there are way more than five things I couldn’t live without, but I have chosen just five. So let’s get started!

tea

1. Tea. Normally, it would be coffee. For years I have not been able to start my day off without my cup of coffee, but a few weeks ago I got really sick and since then I have given up coffee for good. It’s so hard! But I started drinking tea as an alternative. It’s still not the same, but at least it’s something to help me kick start my day! 🙂 I really like Chamomile tea. It tastes good plain and doesn’t need any sweetener or cream!

mascara

2. Mascara. Even if I don’t wear any other makeup, I cannot face my day without mascara. I don’t know why that is, but that is my beauty must-have. Maybelline’s Illegel Length mascara is my favorite one.

paper

3. Pen and paper. Whether I’m writing down ideas, scribbling/doodling, or making lists, I can never have enough paper!

computer

 

 

4. Phone/Computer. I couldn’t decide between the two, so I chose them both! They are both essential to me on a daily basis, and I couldn’t survive very long without either of them! 🙂 I recently purchased this computer, and I honestly can’t see how I lived without it! It’s absolutely amazing!!

a tale of two cities      kiterunner

5. My favorite book. It could be any book, though, just as long as I had something to read! A Tale of Two Cities is my absolute favorite book, but I have many others I love almost just as much! The Kite Runner was another one that popped into my head. I recently purchased ‘And the Mountains Echoed’ by the same author; I am so excited to read it! Have you read it? Is it good?

 

So those are just some of my must-haves/things I couldn’t live without. What are yours? Let me know! I hope you have a great day and I will talk to you soon!

How to Style a Pixie Haircut

Hey everyone! So for today’s post I thought I would share with you a few pictures on how to style a pixie cut! I have been growing my hair out for about a year now and it’s almost to my shoulders. But it just looks so unkempt and is really annoying me, so I made an appointment for Wednesday to chop it all off again!! I am so excited! I’m going to go with a little bit of a different style than what I had before, but it won’t be too different. So after looking through pictures, I thought I would share some tips in case you also have short hair!

856c6deb4b8249b4bfb54eb1dffc387b

 

I like how Emma Watson put a little decorative clip in her hair. There isn’t a whole lot you can do with short hair, but by adding little cute, feminine pieces to it, you can definitely create cute looks!

Ginnifer Goodwin is the person I use when I get my hair cut. I was re-watching Once Upon a Time with my sister, and I just loved her look as Mary Margaret! I like to think I am like her character, so I couldn’t help but wish for short hair again. So that’s why I decided to get my hair cut! I love how she used this cute red bow to do her hair. It adds femininity to her style. I know that sometimes short hair can be more boy-ish, but with cute accessories you can make it more girly!

It will be a little bit harder to do, but if you have longer hair up top, you can curl it. I think that is what I will do sometimes, just so you don’t have to have the same look everyday.

So there are just a couple different ways to fix short hair. Hope you enjoyed this, and I will talk to you later!

Fashion Tip #6!

#6- Tea-length dresses!

I am so excited about this trend. I don’t think there’s anything more girly than wearing a long dress. But it has to be a dress (at least for me : ) ) where its skirt is flowing and can spin easily. If it spins, that’s the epitome of girly. 🙂 So this trend is right up there with feminine and trendy. Far from being matronly or dowdy, these dresses are just beyond cute. If you don’t want the dress to hit in the middle of your calf, where I like to call the “awkward length”, go with a dress that falls just a couple inches below the knee. You can still be fashionable but comfortable in what you are wearing!

Fashion Tip #4!

#4- Wide-legged Pants

You might be aware of this trend that is slowly becoming very popular. Wide-legged pants are certainly coming back with full force. But this time, they are stylish and adorable. These pants flatter all body-types. (Just go for a more high-waisted look if you are on the shorter side, like me 🙂 )  Don’t worry; we’re not saying “good-bye” to those faithful and classic skinny jeans. But we’re just merely adding on to our wardrobe!

Spring 2014!

Hello again! I am so excited for the cold weather to be over soon; I don't know when it will be, but hopefully soon!
This spring is going to be full of pastels, florals and all things bright and cheery! I think most spring's are, but there's just something fresh about clean prints and bright colors to get rid of those winter blah's.

This unique dress is available on Amazon for just a small price! This dress could easily go from winter to spring.

Amazon has such adorable, affordable fashion! This next dress is only 9 dollars! There are so many cute dresses on Amazon; I had no idea of the variety of clothes they had.

I love wearing dresses, and can’t wait for spring! Although I wear dresses in the winter, dresses just yell spring!
