Beauty Buzz: COVERGIRL & Olay Tone Rehab 2-in-1 Foundation

I love being able to “Kill two birds with one stone,” as the saying goes. And in the world of beauty, there’s no better way to do that, then to combine two of your favorite products. But, sometimes it doesn’t always work out. For example, I don’t think those shampoo and conditioner combos work for me. I can never tell the difference. Is that just me? LOL! There’s a brand new cosmetic combo that’s caught…

OOTD: A Crocheted Kind of Way

Let me start off by saying that I chose Torrid’s White Crochet Fringe Poncho (on sale now), because it’s not something that I would normally wear. Remember that whole “trying to more adventurous” New Year’s resolution? I thought it was cute and very boho chic. And I thought I’d try it. Even when I put it on I was still unsure. You ladies know how that is right? But, I kept it on and I’m glad…

JIBRI Spring 2012

Hey my loves…not sure if you’ve seen this yet, but here’s JIBRI’s Spring 2012 Collection. I will admit, I don’t own any of Jasmine’s designs, but my friend Ivory does and she LOVES the line. I’m actually eyeing that first skirt! So gorgeous! Her pieces don’t usually last very long, so if you see something you like…get on it! Check out the line here. Update: I am now the proud owner of this skirt (below) LOL!

The Shopping Diaries: The Last Minute Shopping Continues…

There once was a time when I would plan ahead. It didn’t matter what it was. I actually despised waiting until the last minute to accomplish something, especially shopping. Today, I’m no longer that girl. I’m now that “I’ll wait until last minute to find what I need” shopper and I don’t like it. There’s nothing worse than feeling rushed or forced to buy clothing or shoes. I don’t know why I do it to…

Torrid’s Retro State of Mind

Torrid and I have been friends for a while now and I’ve noticed the trends come and go. One thing I’ve always loved about them is how they’ve always embraced the retro style. And all of the pieces above are perfect examples of that. I’m especially loving the dresses! Brands like Stop Staring and Queen of Heartz make chic pieces! Even the swimsuits are getting in on the action. Do you own any of their…

Beauty Buzz: Estee Lauder’s Mad Men Collection

Where are my Mad Men fans? It’s all about the glamorous 1960’s and the sexy Christina Hendricks. Already headed into it’s fifth season, this AMC’s series has inspired a brand new and limited edition Estee Lauder Mad Men Collection. You’ll find an amazing red lipstick named Cherry and a pink rouge named Evening Rose. Even the outer carton was inspired by Estee Lauder packaging from the 1960’s. I grabbed my new camera and snapped a…

One Dress…3 Looks

I am in love with this ASOS Curve maxi dress. Isn’t the color amazing? Perfect for spring. If I owned this dress, this is probably how’d I’d style it. Three different looks, yet all very casual. That’s me…a casual kind of girl. From a chunky bracelet, clutch, and sandals-these are all pieces that can be found very easily. Most you probably already have them. How would you style this maxi? Sandals by Luichiny Satchels by…

Beauty Buzz: Estee Lauder’s Teal Topaz

I’m so sorry to do this to you, but I have to share Estee Lauder’s Teal Topaz nail lacquer with you. I say I’m sorry because it’s sold out online and it’s a limited edition color…sooooooo…not sure if you’ll be able to find it again. This is probably one of the prettiest colors to ever touch my nails. When applying it, it goes on amazingly smooth and is a true color. When I wore it,…

Bauble Alert: Spiked!

Where are my adventurous ladies? This spiked jewelry may be for you-it’s not just for punk rockers anymore. I love it and I can’t wait to order a few pieces. But, knowing me, I’d hurt myself with one of those rings. LOL! I’m clumsy like that. Anyways, these pieces are an easy way to add edginess to your look. Do you think you can rock spikes?

My Stretch Marks Tell a Story

Have you ever heard the saying that the wrinkles or the lines on your face tell a story? Whether around your eyes, on your forehead, or on the corners of your smile they’ll be there as we age. Could it be from smiling? Frowning? Worrying? Celebrating? Will you remember what was happening in your life during those moments? I look back and view my stretch marks in the same way. As a pre-teen, I noticed…
