Recently I was contacted by Jewelmint to style 2 outfits using 2 of jewelmint's jewelry pieces. I was so excited I can't even tell you! I chose the From Here To Eternity Set and the Silver Zipper Bracelet. I chose to style the eternity set using mustard and black shades while still keeping it feminine. The zipper bracelet I styled more rock n roll. What do you think? How would you style these pieces?
Tank: Old Navy, Cardigan: Forever 21, Skirt: Forever 21
Blazer: Target, Beatles Tank: Target, Denim Shorts: Salvation Army, Shoes: Old Navy
I'm really loving the colors that are coming out for this fall. I found these camel shorts at Old Navy in the clearance section and I love them! I'm still buying shorts up because I can match them with tights when the weather gets cooler.
I stopped into MAC today planning to pick up 1 or 2 things from the Semi Precious Collection. I walked out with seven!
Semi Precious Rose Quatrz MSF
Base: Rosy Pink. Innercircle: Silver, Lime, White pink, Copper
I picked up the MSF in Semi Precious Rose Quartz. For me, the outer circle of pink is a perfect shade of blush for my skintone. The inner circle when mixed together creates a beautiful shimmery champagne highlight.
Dark Indulgence: Forest Green & Black Blue Sheen: Navy, Black & Peach
I don't own anything like these two shades. I think they'd both make beautiful deep smokey eyes!
Gem of Roses: Midtone Strawberry Pink (Lustre) Musky Amethyst: Deep Plum (Frost)
Gem of roses is a great everyday pink lipstick. It's not too bright, not too dark. Musky Amethyst is my favorite! It's a beautiful wash of plum.
Pure Magnificence: Light grey pink Looks Like Sin: Midtone Reddish Plum
Pure Magnificence is a really nice sheer muted mauve shade. I think it will look really nice over more mauve shade lipsticks. Looks Like Sin is also sheer. It gives a really nice sheer plum wash of color and would look pretty over the Musky Amethyst lipstick.
So, my TV is always either on the Disney channel or Nickelodeon because of my almost 5 year old daughter, Violette. As soon as I saw the new Selena Gomez music video, I Love You Like a Love Song, I knew I had to recreate the 1st look she's wearing in the karaoke bar! It is completely my style! I had so much fun recreating this look and I hope you enjoy!
So, I'm absolutely in love with Forever 21! I check the site every single day for new arrivals. Last week, I was checking the shoe section and was soooooooo excited to see they had a coveted pair of shoes back in stock! They are the floral platform maryjane's. Forever 21 came out with a similar pair last year that were black with white daisies. I'm still looking for a pair of those. These shoes are miu miu inspired and are absolutely gorgeous! I can't wait to wear them in an upcoming outfit of the day! If you'd like to see the rest of my haul, check out my video below :)
I needed to run out and do a few errands today. I picked up this cute sundress from TJ Maxx and paired it with this denim jacket from Target. What do you think? Would you like to see more posts like this from me?

Yesterday I was shopping at my local Cosmoprof and saw that they sold Tan Towels. I have been wanting to try a self tanner for awhile now but was a bit apprehensive because I'm so fair. I have used Jergen's Natural Glow lotion and have been happy with that but I wanted to try something that would give me more instant results. I have to say after using one of the Tan Towels last night, I am quite impressed. It didn't get me as dark as I thought it would but I definitely have a lot more color. I purchased the all over face and body towels for light to medium skin tones. I think I may try the darker ones eventually when I'm already wearing the lighter Tan Towel so it's not such a jump from light to dark.
The towelette itself was really easy to apply. I applied a bit of moisturizer to my elbows, knees, ankles and knuckles 1st because I know that self tanners tend to grab more on dryer parts of the skin. I started on my legs and rubbed the towel on my skin from thighs to feet, avoiding the knees and ankles. Then I did my arms, skipping the elbows, upper body, back and face. Because the towel is so large it was easy to reach the hard to reach areas on my back. I then went back to my ankles, knees and elbows once I'd used up most of the towel.
I'm really happy with how it turned out! It's not streaky or orangey at all. It has a bit of that self tanner smell but it's really not strong at all. It's not even as strong as the Jergen's Natural Glow Lotion. I would definitely recommend these if you're looking for a self tanner.

Two weeks ago I decided to purchase the Macadamia Natural Oil products after reading and watching quite a few reviews on them. I was NOT disappointed! I purchased the Rejuvenating Shampoo, Moisturizing Rinse, Healing Oil Spray and Deep Repair Mask. All of these products are color safe, sulfate free, and paraben free!
"Rejuvenating Shampoo is designed to add moisture and protection to all hair types and is excellent for dry, damaged hair." This is a great shampoo. It is a bit thin when you squeeze it from the bottle so be careful about that. You don't need a huge amount to get a good lather since these products are well concentrated. It smells great too! It has a nice sweet smell to it.
"Moisturizing Rinse is daily conditioner designed to nourish and detangle hair, leaving it manageable and ready to style." This is a really nice everyday conditioner. It is not too heavy but, heavy enough to detangle my hair and leave it feeling well moisturized. The smell is similiar to the shampoo.
Healing Oil Spray:
"Healing Oil Spray is an ultra fine mist that instantly absorbs into hair, weightlessly infusing moisture and shine." I love this spray! At first I thought it would leave my hair feeling oily but it doesn't. It tames my frizzes and makes my hair look so shiny! The only downside to this I guess is the smell. It doesn't smell as good as the other products. It has more of an earthy smell but it's not bad at all. It's worth it to me.
Deep Repair Mask:
"Deep Repair Masque is a hair reconstructor that will penetrate and rebuild damaged hair for improved shine and elasticity." Now this is the end all be all to me! This is probably the most amazing product I've ever used on my hair! My ends were really dry and damaged due to bleaching. After I trimmed my split ends I used this product and my hair feels like it did when I was a child! It has helped to repair most of the damage done to my hair due to bleaching and heat. This product has made my hair feel so silky, shiny and healthy I can't believe it!
These products can be purchased from www.macadamiahair.com and ulta.com or in ulta stores.
*All of these products were purchased with my own money. I am not being sponsored for this review*
I picked up 2 of the new Wet N wild trio palette's and swatched them for you. The 1st one I got is Silent Treatment which is a really pretty palette with peach, brown, and taupe shades. The 2nd one is called I'm feeling Retro which has a silvery cream, a pretty teal and an awesome purple that is almost an exact dupe for MAC's Stars N Rockets!! The Wet N Wild purple is a teensy weensy bit darker but they have the exact same finish!
I was in my local Walgreen's yesterday and I finally got my hands on all 3 of the Wet n Wild 8 pan palettes! I'm so excited to have gotten my hands on them. I bought an extra one of each for a giveaway for all my subscribers so don't forgot to check out the video to enter! After swatching all of these palette's I'd have to say Comfort Zone is my favorite by far. The colors are gorgeous and have amazing payoff!
I've gotten some requests to show my makeup vanity and collection and here it is! I use to film in my bathroom because that's where I had everything stored and where the lighting was best. But, now I've got my vanity all set up and my videos will be shot from there from now on unless it's something like a hair tutorial where I need to stand.
