I feel like im advertising but I figured since this is a fashion and beauty blog, you might like watching videos as well! Yes, i am pretty awkward, but I guess that comes with talking to your camera alone in your bedroom for the first few times.
I love you guys

Nail Of The Day: Essie’s Boxer Shorts

October 7, 2012
Essie’s Boxer Shorts

 

First off I would like to say that this isn’t my picture. I was having trouble so I got my picture from the lovely google images- (My nails look the exact same way color- wise)

I decided to put this on my nails today since I had just bought it. I instantly fell in love with it, and since it is limited edition I wanted to share it with you. I have never seen another color like this. I have wanted to try essie nail polish for such a long time, but never did because i’m all about cheaper alternatives when it comes to nail polish. I’m pretty sure my perspective has changed. Essie nail polish has a such a great consistency to them. They go on smoothly and have a beautiful color pay- off. At target they are $7.79 , however you can you usually find them at Tjmaxx for around $4.

Other than that…..

I feel so bad because nothing has been posted since September 3rd. Ever since I started high school things have just been crazy and I have had such a hard time with keeping up with the blog. Not to mention I have completely run out of ideas.

I need your help guyss<33 I need you to leave requests for me to work on getting ready so I have some stuff to post. Also please leave how often you would like me to post. Thank you soo much<333

Revlon Lip Butter Review

Hi Girls!
First off, today I’m working on brainstorming ideas for future posts and creating a schedule. So if you have any requests please leave them down below. I can use all the help I can get! I am open to anything(:

Anyway onto todays post! I have been trying out the Revlon Lip butters and I thought I would review them!

Revlon Lip butters ( $6.49- 7.99)

My opinion: I think these are amazing. They have a great color selection. They go on sheer but are build-able.

Consistency? The lip butters are very moisturizing and give a glossy effect. They aren’t sticky at all and feel very smooth on your lips.

How long do they last? The lasting quality on these aren’t anything amazing. The color fades pretty fast, however the moisture stays.

****************************************************************************

I’m so sorry this was so short. The pictures wouldn’t cooperate. I hope you enjoyed!

****************************************************************************

QOTP (Questions of the Post) :

1. Have you tried any lip butters?
2. Is there anything you want me to review?
3. Any way I could improve?

Back to School Beauty

♥

Hey everyone! Gosh, it feels like a long time since my last post but I’ve been super busy with back to school stuff and everything that comes with school (homework). But, I am trying to get more organzied this year and have set a notification on my phone so I remember to post every 1-2 weeks.

This post is all about beauty! Going back to school is rough and I don’t always feel up to spending hours on my hair and makeup. Thankfully, I have a uniform at my school so I don’t have to worry about fashion! Here are some of my tips and tricks for the most beautiful you at school without taking hours to get ready!

  • Tip 1: Don’t make everyday a fashion show!

I know that every once in awhile, wearing a cute dress or skirt to school is fun but don’t stress about dressing like that everyday. You can make sweatpants as cute as a dress. I showed this in the Polyvore below:

See? Just as cute, so much comfier!

  • Tip 2: Wearing your hair up is okay!

Okay, so I love curling an straightening my hair as much as the next girl but some days I like to wear my hair up but I hate wearing a simple ponytail. So I like French twists, French braid headbands, and messy buns. Below are some pictures for each. Plus, you can YouTube these for step-by-steps!

  • Tip 3: Don’t do a full face of makeup everyday!
    Besides the fact that it’s not good for skin, but also I hate having to bother will a bunch of makeup every single day! So I use certain products to make it look like a lot of makeup when in reality, I’m not.

Cream Eyeshadow is amazing! I can pick one or two colors and swipe it on in under a minute for a polished look that I personally like better than normal eyeshadows. You can find them everywherw! I love Bobbi Brown cream eyeshawdows but I use Revlon too!

Okay, so here’s where I try not to preach to you all unsuccessfully. I love this product by MakeUp Forever! I’m not sure exactly what it’s supposed to be used for but from what I’ve learned, you put it on your face before you put anything other product on and it evens your skin tone. And it does! I use this so much. A little bit of this powder and some concealer and I don’t need any foundation. I hope that wasn’t too much of lecture but it really works!

Comments? Thoughts? Let me know so I can keep making these posts better and better!

Lots of Love,

Jennifer

A: I was first interested in it when I would watch my mom put on makeup & it just looked so pretty!

Transition Summer Clothes to Back to School

Hey everyone, it’s been crazy busy this summer and I apologize for not posting as much as I would like to! I hope to get back on a more regular posting schedule very soon!

For today’s post, I was thinking about how I have all these adorable summer clothes that I would love to wear in the fall so I don’t have to buy a bunch of new clothes. So, I went onto Polyvore and transitioned some of my favorite summer pieces into fall fashion. I hope you enjoy and get some inspiration.

Look 1: White Skirt

A white skirt just screams summer to me so it can be hard to make it a fall piece. My tips: use some fall appropriate colors in a long-sleeved shirt and matching scarf to offset to summerness of the skirt. The flats and earrings add a nice touch.

Look 2: Colorful Shorts

With your bright shorts, I think the rest of the outfit should be neutral. A gray tank top and black blazer add a sophistication to the look. The pale shoes and bag go well with the bright shorts and the dark jewelry ties it together well. I love this look and think it looks a lot like a fall fashionista.

Look 3: White Dress

A white dress is super summery and usually only broken out then. But pairing it with floral leggings and black boots makes it have a more fall look. the brown bag and long necklaces tie the look together. This is probably my favorite look.

Look 4: Bandeau Top

A lot of people have bandeau tops that are so cute and fun for summer but hard to wear in the fall. But if you pair a cardigan in the same color scheme and button it up (just enough so you’re not showing any stomach), pair it with jeans, and nude flats, it transitions nicely into a fall look.

Look 5: Summery Wedges

Bought those adorable wedges at the end of summer sale? Don’t want to wait until next summer to wear them? Pair them with a black cardigan and a simple polka dot skirt! Add a simple silver necklace and the summery wedges fit right into fall.

Comments? Thoughts? Let me know so I can keep making posts better and better!

Lots of Love,

Jennifer
