Outfit Of The Day: Little Black Dress

Hello lovelies! I hope you are all doing well. (:

This weekend, my family and I took a roadtrip to Cincinnati. The weather was absolutely gorgeous! 
The sun was shining, but there was a light breeze. Perfect weather for me. 

I decided to just wear a simple black dress but have some fun with accessories. I paired this pretty floral scarf with the dress to add a pattern. I also added these glammed up combat boots to make the look more interesting.

Dress - Marshall's 
Tights -Target
Scarf - Charlotte Russe 
Boots - Vera Wang

I hope you all had an absolutely amazing weekend. (:

My Current Favorites: Beauty and Random Stuff

Hello lovelies! Long post :(

I have been so neglectful and I am so so sorry everyone. I need to manage my time
better. This week has been crazy; It's my last Homecoming week of high school...crazy!
Our general theme is Disney, so I get to dress up as Minnie Mouse tomorrow. I am beyond excited!
I will definitely try to post photos of my Minnie Mouse costume made from items that are easily

So for this post, I want to just fill you all in on some of my current favorites! I have some 
beauty-related favorites of course, but I have also added some random favorites, well, because
I just felt like sharing them with you. (: 

Oh my my my. This candle is my obsession for autumn. At the beginning of this month, I stopped
by Bath and Body Works to check out their fall collection. I love most of the collection, but this candle
was calling my name. The website describes the candle as: "Wrap yourself in a warm blend of bergamot, mahogany and a delicate veil of musk." This may be my favorite scent EVER. My mother and I were joking about how it kinda smells like a man, but like a good man scent ...hahaha 

Period films like Marie Antoinette and Pride & Prejudice are just breathtakingly beautiful to me. 
I love every aspect of them: the fashion, the acting, the way they can take you back in time.

I have also been reading more books like Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. I love the language that the authors used and how different literature used to be. 

As far as eye makeup, I have been loving warm, plum tones. They are so fall inspired.

I have a ton of allergies, so makeup can be difficult sometimes. I have tried so many different makeup removers, but these are the best I have tried! They are very gentle, so they don't irritate my eyes or skin.

Jean Pierre Cosmetics: Pro Age Daily Cleansing Towelettes
Neutrogena: Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover

I have been reaching for this nail polish almost every time I paint my nails. It dries so quickly and I love the shiny finish. I don't have to add a topcoat every time I paint my nails because this polish is so long lasting. It really can last up to 10 days, which is AMAZING for a nail polish. 

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Pro in Stiletto Red

Okay it's random food favorites time...hahaha

1. Lemon Curd: This is so yummy, oh my. I love how it does not taste acidic, even if it is citrus.
1. Marshmallows: I have been obsessed with marshmallows my whole life, but we recently installed a fire pit in my I can roast marshmallows at any time. PERFECT!!
3. Candy Corn Taffy: Probably the most delicious candy ever. I always look forward to these coming back in stores during autumn. Only downside, I could eat a whole bag. It is impossible to have self control with this candy...haha

What are some your current favorites? (:

Au revoir,

Outfit Of The Day: Camouflage

Hello lovelies! Here is a quick outfit post. I have a lot of work to do tonight, but I thought
 I would go ahead and make a short but sweet post for my readers. 

Last weekend, my parents surprised me with a quick trip to Chicago. I couldn't have been
more happy to have a little get-away because everything has been so stressful lately!

We went to this massive mall with an amazing selection of stores while we were in Chicago. I knew
the mall had an Urban I rushed on into the store. They had an amazing denim
sale on, but I ran back to the sale section to rummage through the goods. I spotted this pair of 
camouflage denim, and I instantly fell in love. I was even more in love when I looked at the price tag
and they were marked for under $20. That's a steal for denim at Urban, so I had to get them. My lovely
mother bought them for me, so here's a shout-out to her. Love you mum. (:

I just decided to pair a solid dark coral/burnt orange top with the pants and kept it fairly simple with 
neutral sandals, but I had to carry this amazing studded handbag. I think it's going to be my fall staple handbag for sure! 

Top - Wallflower
Necklace - World Market
Pants - Urban Outfitters (brand: Silence+Noise)
Handbag - TJ Maxx (brand: MMS)

So what do you think about printed denim? Yay or nay?! (:

My Picks Of The Fall 2013 Trends


Hello lovelies! I hope you are all doing absolutely amazing.

I feel like I have been a bit neglectful with my blog lately, but I've just had so many things
going on every single day. I have some posts planned, so I'm hoping to have them
posted for you all throughout the week. PS...another review is coming up soon! ;)

So now, on to this post! Every year, I look forward to autumn/fall because it's the best season for sure.
And's almost here! I've been eyeing up the trends for this fall, and I must say I am pleasantly
surprised with this year's fashions.

We can all lust after the beautiful couture of the runways, but when it comes down to it, one must
simplify the trends for them to be wearable in every day life. As a high school student, I could never show up in some of the runway ensembles, even if I could afford the high price tag! I've chosen some different looks based on the fall trends, but they are a bit more realistic for me to wear this fall.


trend one: MONOCHROME

This is a no-brainer trend for me, since my normal wardrobe consists of 90% black and white! I love 
the classic prints such as stripes and polka dots; they are so effortlessly chic! When it comes to
black and white, you can really add your own style. You can wear a couple black and white pieces
in so many different ways, from punk-grunge to classy, just depending on your mood!


trend two: PLAID

Flashback to the 90's or what?! I have always loved the effortlessly stylishly look of plaid,
so I'm so excited that it's everywhere this fall! I saw a bunch of plaid skater skirts at Urban Outfitters
this weekend, and I had to restrain myself from snatching them up. Plaid button ups are a great
way to make an outfit more interesting by layering. One way to layer a plaid shirt is to toss it over a cool band t-shirt. Plaid is also a print that is universally flattering, so don't be shy!



Okay so you are all going to think I'm crazy...but I used to despise cardigans. Weird I know!
I've just always found it difficult to find a cardigan that fits me properly due to my long torso. With the
oversized trend that is stealing the scene everywhere, I am finally able to enjoy cardigans! I recently
purchased a black one from TJ Maxx that hits about mid-thigh, and I'm already in love with it!

Well there you have it: my picks of the fall trends of 2013! I made the photos on Polyvore,
so if you are interested in any of the items above, you can just click the photo, and Polyvore should
give you a direct link to where you can purchase the item.

Let me know what you guys think in the comments! I love to hear your feedback. (:

Au revoir,

Review: BA Star Makeup

Hello lovelies! I hope you are all doing well.

I recently received a sample from the brand BA Star Makeup. As soon as
I opened the package, I knew that this Zebra lipgloss was right up my street.

BA Star is a makeup company that the majority of cheerleaders, dancers, and performers know
and love...and now I see why! The products have really appealing packaging, amazing products,  and the company is extremely friendly.

Pick up your own zebra lipgloss here!

Here is a swatch of just the lipgloss. I love the multi-color glitter in the gloss, and I was so pleasantly
surprised that the glitter does not have the 'chunky' glitter like most other lipglosses have.

As for the appearance of the gloss, I love to wear it to events such as football game because the gloss
 is so shiny! Personally, I'm not one to wear lipgloss daily, but this lipgloss is so easy on the lips 
that it could be worn daily. 

 The gloss is very long lasting. I wore it to a football game last night, and I was shocked that it
had such amazing staying power! The gloss was still in place and looked great by the end of
the game!

This is what the gloss looks like on the lips. I love that the glitter is noticeable, but not
 too glitzy for day time. 

I absolutely LOVE wearing this clear gloss over a matte lipstick. A high shine lip that will stay in place
 is really difficult to achieve. With this gloss, you don't have to worry about your lip products 
sliding down your face!

And here is a photo to show you all that this product looks great for every day makeup. (:

So in conclusion, I absolutely love this zebra lipgloss from BA Star Makeup. It is extremely
versatile and easy to wear. I highly recommend this company.

Are you interested in purchasing some BA Star products?

Also, please check out their amazing shadows! They are absolutely gorgeous!

Au revoir,
