The Neon “Model Lid”

Have you guys noticed this trend in all the fashion mags? Image

I mean…that ONE stripe of color makes such a difference, and it’s so popular!

Image

Just by dipping a brush into a neon color and swiping it along the lash line makes your eyes pop. It’s so gorgeous and modern and SIMPLE. Image

I know I wasn’t very wordy..but I didn’t want to distract from the pics!

A lot of makeup these days seems to be very neon. But hey, trends come and go! I just thought this one looked very beautiful.

Five Weekly Faves!

Hey Curly-Fries ❤ (Can I call you guys that?)

This week I had a lot of interesting favorites that I thought I could show-and-tell. I rarely ever do favorites, but here y’all go!

Favorite #5: Natural Scents Candle in “Vanilla Latte”

Image

This candle smells reallllly great, sort of like a creamy vanilla candy, with no coffee-reminescent smell to be detected. Natural Scents has THE BEST candles, and their selection of scents is astounding. They have everything from Sugar Cookie to Eggnog to Birthday Cake to Watermelon to Bubblegum to Raspberry Truffle to Ylang Ylang and everything in between.

The best part is the glass square it comes in is made out of recycled materials! Score!

You can get them here. :}

Favorite #4: Lace Socks 

Image

Who doesn’t love some feminine lace socks? I love the little button accents and the lace on the hem! They were made by Grace and Lace Company on Etsy, who makes a lot of girly socks, leg-warmers, and the like. This particular style also came in mint..one of my fave colors!! Image

Weekly Favorite #3: Zoi Greek Yogurt in “Raspberry Cream” Flavor Image

In my opinion, Zoi makes the best greek yogurt in stores. I’ve tried all types from all brands, but this is my favorite. It’s got a solid, creamy-white upper layer, then a soft bed of fruit in the bottom. I like how it’s not gooey and chunky like other brands; it’s more like you’re eating a cheesecake than anything else. And it’s healthy!

Weekly Favorite #2: The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter 

Image

Not gonna lie..I’ve used up at least ten of these in my 13-year-old-life. But I just got a new one this week, and supposed that I’d better add it to the list!

First off, the scent is soft. It doesn’t bombard you, it BECKONS you with coconutty goodness. And it moisturizes your skin like no other, actually repairing it with each use. I love coconut scents, but if they’re not your thing, The Body Shop has many other options!

Weekly Favorite #1: MAC Lipstick in “Syrup” 

Image

I recently got this in the mail with a bunch of other MAC lipsticks, but this is one of my most favorite. It’s described as a “cloudy pink” on the MAC website, but in reality it’s more of a creamy mauve.

I love it. It’s a great everyday shade, and I’ve been wearing the heck out of it.

Anyway..that’s all for today!

I’m really tired, so I’m going to crawl in bed and take a leisurely sleep.

‘Nighty night starlets. ❤

How-To: “Hot Girl” Disguise

WARNING: This look isn’t too appropriate for school, work, first dates, or any casual event. Wear with caution!

Haha ‘ello loves!

If any of you have heard of Jenna Marbles (the Youtuber), you will know I borrowed the title “Hot Girl Disguise” from her! This is my own spin-off of her comical look, tweaked to my own level of wearability with some personality thrown in.

Ever wanted to be someone else for ONE NIGHT? Well, this look does just that. You’ll feel glamorous, a little outrageous, and over-all: FIERCE.

I mean, hey. I brought out the falsies, eyeliner, and favorite lipstick, so things should get pretty cray-cray.

Here’s what you need for your one-night identity:

IMG_2926

  • A favorite full-coverage foundation (time to bring out your expensive potions and lotions!) 
  • Eye primer
  • Black or dark-colored eyeliner with NO glossy finish
  • Hazy eyeshadows
  • Mascara
  • One succulent lip shade of your choice (I adore deep berries, wines, bubblegum pinks, any fun color that suits you!)
  • False lashes (Optional)
  • Lipgloss (Optional)
  • Fragrance (Optional)
  • A pair of sexy heels (SORT OF optional)

So the first part is easy: Just dab on your coverage. You’re basically creating a blemish-free, dark-circle-free, crease-and-crinkle-free look. Erase away all your imperfections!

When you’re done with that, you can move on to the eyes. Choosing dark, soft colors, start to enhance your eyes around the crease, slowly working down to the lid. You can pick any colors, from dark purples, to browns, to forest greens, to grays. One rule: NO solid black eyes. You want to look pretty, not panda.

If you’re into the liner, it’s better to make it softer and smudged for this look, not pristine and sharp. The eyes should be soft, not like every bit was slaved over. Even though I kept mine simple (with just three shades), GIRL, if you wanna, you can pull out the glitter, rhinestones, and drag-queen falsies for all I care. It’s YOUR Hot Girl Disguise, dahhling.

AND NOW, the lips. With lips, it doesn’t have to be complicated. I chose a deep, glossy berry color for this look, but if Barbie-pink is more your style, go for it!

Now, squeeze into your party dress, dab on your fragrance, and slip on your sexy six-inches.

You’re fabulous.

A Million Times Thank You

Guys…

I remember when I first started blogging, and did a “Thank You” post at 39 followers.

…Now, I have 77!!!

If it wasn’t for all of you supporting me, giving me feedback, following me on Twitter, and creating this happy, accepting community, I would never have continued on. You guys make me feel so confident and proud that people CARE.

Hey, even if you’re not a follower, thanks for reading this. ;}

And just for the heck of it, here’s a photo of a baby elephant playing with some little birds! How CUTEEE? TWhC7

Honestly, I have met EXTREMELY amazing people on here! Plus, I made friends with so many other beauty-bloggers, fashionistas, and writers, all of whom are so genuine and inspiring.

Maybe someday I’ll look back at this post and laugh, because “77” seemed like such a small number.

I can’t even explain how much I thank you, for following me, for reading this, for caring and listening.

Love you all.

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!

Inspired Outfit

Today, because I was very bored, I decided to piece together an “inspired” outfit. An inspired outfit is basically a look that someone or someTHING inspired me to make!

I just watched “My Week With Marilyn.” Marilyn Monroe is such a classic beauty icon, and wore a lot of gorgeous things. (Short review on the movie: The actress played her extremely well! Check it out when you have the chance!:} )

So, first off, I chose a swimsuit, not a dress, for a more beachy look.

Image

It’s the “Magicsuit Solid Gabby One-Piece Swimsuit” from Soma.  It just has that vintage pin-up feel, and reminds me a lot of one that Marilyn wore! Marilyn+Monroe+black+bathing+suit

Next, I picked out some high heels! It’s all about the shoes, ladies!

Who could rock heels with a swimsuit? Marilyn could!Image

I know everything looks very “basic black”, but Marilyn was the epitome of classic. These are the “High Heel Platform Pumps” from Peltz Shoes.

And last, I chose a pair of black, vintage cat-eye sunglasses from RetroCitySunglasses.   Image

Add some red lipstick, and that’s the cherry on top of a fabulous outfit. ❤

(I like to use MAC’s “MAC Red”.)

 Image

Hopefully this outfit wasn’t too boring for you guys!

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!

Mini Update!

Hi lovelies!

I’m just writing this to say hello, and sorry I haven’t been posting as frequently as I should. Things have been so hectic in my life, I just wanted to let you know I haven’t disappeared of the face of the planet.

Anyway, I found the CUTEST clutch on Etsy. The minty color is so refreshing for spring, and it adds a graceful, feminine touch with the lace! Image

You can buy one here!

Also, just in time for spring trends, here’s some chic sandals from Jellypop. I love the flower accent; they just look so natural and girly! Image

I know some people don’t really care about updates like these, but I just wanted to let you know I can’t wait to talk to you again, and miss you all dearly. ❤ PLUS, I wanted to show some cute, springtime accessories. I’m going to try to incorporate a little more fashion into my posts!

Luv ya!

My Favorite Nude Lipstick on Planet Earth

Hey guys, I’d like to show you something very special…

Out of all my lipsticks, creams and shimmers, glosses, pencils and other miscellaneous lip products, this is my favorite nude out of them all. She’s stuck by me for a loooong time.

This is maybe my most favorite lipstick EVER.

I’d like to introduce you to Smashbox’s “Be Legendary” Lipstick in “Chai”. Gaahd, I love her so.

It’s a creamy, warm, peachy-toned nude that’s PERFECT. It’s not too light, or too pink, or too fleshy-toned. It’s sort of a yellow-toned, brown-peachy chocolate color. It’s not as dead-looking as the swatches on the Smashbox website.

This is my actual tube:

IMG_2286

As you can tell, it’s a bit worn down. I used to wear this color every day and night, because it’s the kind of nude that can look dramatic or subtle. It’s glossy, it’s creamy, it’s LUXURIOUS. If you have cool under tones, or prefer beige or pinky nude lipsticks, this wouldn’t work for you.

IMG_2289

On my hand it looks a lot like milk chocolate, but on my skin it looks way different. It looks a bit rosier. Not as brown. To me, instead of “Chai”, the name “Chocolate Peach” is a lot more fitting. Or maybe “Coco Peach”. IDK. Something chocolate and peachy. It sounds delicious anyway :}

I purchase this at Sephora. But you can also purchase them here! Go Smashbox!!!!

Anyway…peace out guys! What’s your favorite nude lipstick? You can leave your faves in the comments!

My VDay FOTD and OOTD

Ohhhh happy Valentine’s Day, everybody!

Today was a rush of school, Valentines, and middle-schoolers professing their undying love for each other. We had a school “spirit day” today, and I dressed up in a ridiculously fluffy, pink tutu, and pink shirt, and a pink headband in my hair. Image

Sorry for the little peek of bra. And the noticeable Hello Kitty undershorts. It’s a fun look, though, you have to admit!

Image

My makeup was a simple cat eye, and sweet, pink cheeks and lips. I used Maybelline Baby Lips in “Pink Punch” (I was having a little experiment), and on my cheeks is Milani Baked Blush in “Dolce Pink”. I was using my Maybelline Eye Studio Liner in “Blackest Black”, and my Wet ‘N’ Wild “Reserve Your Cabana” dusted a little bit everywhere for an extra finish.

What do YOU guys think? How was your day? What did you wear?

Love ya lots!
