Small Update!

Good morning, everyone.

Starting Monday, my days will be filled with dance practice, ten-minute sprints, meetings, preparing for school to start, and trying to keep up with my newly hectic schedule.

I will be sleep-deprived, stressed, and most likely not really that happy.

I’ll try to post as much as I can next week, but I’m not making any promises.

I leave you with Pusheen, dancing adorably. Image

Luv you guys. Have a fun weekend!

MAC in the Mail & Cute Workout Clothes

I’ve been pestering my mom to purchase my MAC stuff for months now (I got exceptionally good grades and she PROMISED), so now I’ve got a whole bunch of stuff coming for a review!

And one certain product I picked out was “Candy Yum Yum” lipstick. EEEEEK!! Omgomgomgomg.

I heard Candy Yum Yum is like the QUEEN of pink lipsticks. So bright…so iconic…so crazy and daring! For those who don’t know what I’m talking about, here’s some 411 on Candy Yum Yum.

Image

Candy Yum Yum is a LEGENDARY MAC lipstick, and for a while, there this huge buzz about it on Youtube.  Everyone had to have taste of Candy Yum Yum! Everyone!

Anyway..it’s basically a bright, neon pink with a matte finish. I think it looks better on darker skin tones, but I hope I can rock it!

And BTW, guys I found an awesome website for cute workout clothes! Forever 21 Active Wear is seriously the bomb-diggity. When your Diet-Train crashes and burns (like mine), there’s nothing left to motivate you than a pair of adorable athletic capris and a matching sports bra. Image

WHOOO! I’m gonna go workout!

My “Wishful Thinking” Spring Outift

It seems like all the spring trends are always bright and blah: patterns, bright colors, statement shoes, bright eyewear, and the like. Let me tell you a secret, ladies…You don’t have to depend on the guidance of fashion mags for what to wear!

During the sunny, crisp days of spring, there’ so much inspiration in the weather and nature! Here’s my “wishful thinking” spring outfit WISHES, and WANTS:

First off, I found this hair bow on Etsy.com, my SAVIOR for all things cute and unique!

Image As you can see, it’s a very soft, delicate pattern, with very soft, delicate colors! The pearl accent adds to the vintage touch, and it looks girly without being TOO “little-girlish”.

I also LOVE LOVE LOVE the color mint for springtime!! Seriously. Mint is soo refreshing, sweet, and screams “Spring! Spring is here!”

Image

I just typed into Google “mint dress” and a bazillion options came up! This one is the “Filled With Merri-Ment Dress” from Modcloth. If I had this dress I would literally die. It’s so adorable!!

Image

Where I’m from, it’s mildly dewy in the spring. I like prancing around in cute little rain boots, splashing in puddles and what not. Doing happy-dances in the rain! Skipping through the damp grass!!! These. Are. So. Sweet. I adore the color…it’s like peaches and cream! These are Hunter Rain Boots from Bloomingdales, in the color “Flame”.

PLUS one jacket! Again, from Modcloth.

Image Meet “The Wheel Tough Gal Jacket”! Paired with the feminine, dainty pieces, it adds a nice contrast because it has a rebellious touch.

Anyway..I hope I didn’t bore you all to death! What are some of YOUR favorite things to wear for spring?

Luv ya!

Image

The rules of this award are:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you
  2. Add the “One Lovely Blog Award” image to your post.
  3. Share 7 things about you.
  4. Pass the award on to seven nominees
  5. Include this set of rules
  6. Inform your nominees by posting a comment on their blogs. 

The person that nominated me, the lovely and super-sweet Divine Rush (I thank you SO, SOOO much, girly!), chose to explain why she chose those certain bloggers. And I though ‘Hey, that sounds like a perfectly delightful idea to me.’ So I’m going to do it too!

BUT BEFORE WE BEGIN, here are seven things about me:

1. I looooove any lip product that smells and tastes nice.

2. I can’t stand people that smack their food when they chew…blegghhh.

3. My first high-end eyeshadow was “Sunkissed” by the Sephora Collection, which is sadly discontinued now. But I loved it back then!

4. Blue, purple and pink are my favorite colors. But I also really like green! I just like colors. :}

5. If I had to choose one food to live off of, it would be soup. Or pasta. Or bread. MMmm carbs.

6. I love writing dorky poems and making up fun words, or pulling weird faces!

7. Blogging is one of my favorite pastimes.

BAM. Now onto the nominees! 

Painted Lady. She is such an elegant blog, that I loooove to read. If you want info on all things beauty, check her out pronto! She’s such a sweet, gracious beauty, with great insights!

Pearls and Paris. God, I love her blog! She’s so trendy and “with-it”, and she has the cutest daily inspirations! Her voice totally engages her readers, and she has a lot of great stuff on…well…everything! Beauty, music, news, shopping, travel, humor, ect.

Aavicenna. She is the QUEEN, you guys. The queen of scents! The connoisseur! Her blogs are mostly scent reviews: thorough, honest-to-god, SUPER-descriptive scent reviews. Thinking about buying a scent but you aren’t sure? Stop by and check her out!

Beauty Nerd Marisha. I think I first started following Marisha when we had just entered the whole blogging world. When we first started. When we were little blossoms! AND NOW, she’s grown so much! She’s witty, engaging, hilariously helpful, and just a joy to read! When you read her posts, it’s like you’re chatting with a best friend, gossiping and quipping about girls and their “foundation masks” or brown lipstick and why you think it’s amazing. Just..love ya, Marisha! I hope I get your autograph before you’re famous and all ;}

The Beauty Cloud. This girl makes amazing reviews on makeup!!! I also love how she shares new trends or fashion pieces; it’s like having a narrator inside a fashion mag!

Janine Russell. She is just a phenomenal writer. She is wise, and ambitious, and smart, and funny, and really pretty on top of that. She stands up for what’s right, and I totally respect her. You go, girl!

Rockin’ Around The Frock. Even though I am a bit new to her blog, I am totally a fan. She’s like the glam, chic, sophisticated older sister I always wanted. She has this sort of style that I adore, and posts the best things on fashion and beauty. I’d say she posts a healthy mix of both. And she’s funny too. Really funny. Like “fall-out-of-my-chair-laughing-about-Brittany-Spear’s-denim-dress-and-choking-on-my-soda” funny. I love her quips.

And that’s it guys! Thanks so much. ❤ Peace out!

Valentine’s Day

Hi my sweethearts!

So.

Valentine’s Day.

A holiday full of mushy couples, chocolate hearts, icky chick-flicks, and romantic dates. A really stupid, pointless, adorable holiday.

I am personally single. So, on this holiday, in the place of romantic dates, I just sit home and eat food. Forever alone. *sniffle sniffle* 

Haaaah totally kidding. I’m not one for mushiness and gushiness, candlelit dinners and whatever ickiness couples do on Valentine’s Day. But, even with all the cheesy chocolate boxes and corny paper hearts floating all over the place, Valentine’s Day is a nice inspiration for clothing!

NO, I don’t mean that you should dress up like a giant chocolate box, or get decked out in lace and ribbons. I always thought of Valentine’s Day as a feminine, sweet, holiday, where you can dress more romantically than usual. Flowing dresses, light lace and tulle, loose curls over bare shoulders, delicate jewelry and a blushing complexion, with sweet, pink, kissable lips. ROMANTIC and ELEGANT!6a00d8341c683453ef00e5505095de8833-800wi

None of the whole “sweater embroidered with hearts, red shoes with white socks, pink skirt, everything matching and coordinating to Valentine’s Day colors” thing. That’s tacky and…weird. Not cute at all.

Not saying you have to look like a Vogue model or anything, but play around! Fun hair pieces, long skirts, and light fabrics scream effortlessly beautiful.

TIP: If you’re going to be doing a little kissing (or a lot), stay away from the super-sticky lipgloss!

ANOTHER TIP: Breath-mints are your BFFL! And so is lipbalm, hun! ;}

ONE MORE: If you’re not going out anywhere, invite all yo single ladies over!
