Clothing and Shoe haul!

Thursday, April 26, 2012

I've missed blogging so much and I promise I will be back soon. I decided to take a break of studying and make a post of a few clothing items I've picked up recently.
The first pair of shoes is from Rack Room Shoes. My sister's college graduation is coming up soon and I wanted a new pair of heels. These were on sale for $30 and their really simple and comfortable. I believe these are 3 inches. They have a peep-toe, and I tried to catch a picture showcasing the fact that they have really small holes throughout that create a visual interest without being crazy.

Then I went to Kohl's where the rest of my money was spent. I got these pair of really adorable silver strappy flats. I like these because they are open and spring/summer-like but they don't slap your feet like flip-flops do.
The next thing I got was this casual dress. It's navy blue and lime green with a t-shirt style top, a cinched waist with a braided brown belt, and a short flowy skirt.

Then I got this sunday-style grey skirt for church with some "flowers" on the bottom.

I have been searching for a pair of colored shorts and I absolutely fell in love with these. They are actually much more green in real life. A true bright teal, where as in the picture they just look bright blue.

The last piece of clothing was this shirt I got specifically to tuck into a high-waisted black shirt (which may be my first OOTD post in a few weeks) and it's just a bright blue shirt that looks quite simple. My mom likes to tell me the clothes that look simplest on the hanger look the best on me (that could just be motherly-love talking.)

You guys seeing my color scheme for this spring? The last thing I bought at Kohl's was this pair of earrings. Their gorgeous silver earrings with teal stones. 
The last place I went was Bath and Body Works. I had a $10 off a $30 purchase and all of their signature line was buy 3 get 3 free. I got a shower gel and lotion of the following scents: Black Raspberry Vanilla, Rio Rumberry, and Bali Mango. The BRV shower gel is for me, the lotion for my mom, and one of either the RR or BM sets is for me, the other is for my sister.

I hope you enjoyed and watch out for more posts soon. (:

Spring Things Tag

Sunday, April 15, 2012

Hey! Since I don't have a lot of time to do reviews or tutorials right now, I decided to do a tag. This tag has been going around on Youtube so here goes:

1. What are some things you are looking forward to this season?
I'm really excited for the warmer weather since I hate the cold. I am also really excited for spring training for drill team that starts in a few weeks.

2. What are some nail polishes you reach for during spring?
I actually didn't wear nail polish as often last spring, but this year I really have been loving Sally Hansen's Extreme Wear Nail Color in Coral Reef, which is a gorgeous really bright coral. I also really like Revlon's Minted.

3. What are some fashion and beauty trends you are going to rock?
I'm not huge on trends, but I really love the lace trend for fashion as well as the "Sun-Kissed" cheeks for makeup trends. Bronzer is a definite must for me.

4. Favorite spring accesories?
My favorite spring accesory is a simple pair of pearl earrings. They are so classy and I really love the way the look all year, but especially in spring.

5. Favorite spring scents?
I absolutely love Bath and Body Works Be Enchanted. It's the perfect blend of fruity, floral, and sweet.
Notes according to fragrantica:
Top Notes: citrus, Iced Pomegranate, wildberries, passionfruit.
Heart: honeysuckle, floral frosted bouquet, sugared violet, dewfruit, Asian pear.
Base: vanilla, musk, sandalwood

I tag anybody that wants to do this tag in a blog post or in a video or even in a comment!

You know those sheer nail polishes that never seem to get opaque? I had one nail polish from Ulta in the shade Baby Doll that really couldn't get opaque. I decided to try to layer it over a white and the result is pretty interesting. The pink shade is pretty translucent so it kinda looks like a pink and white duochrome nail polish. This is two coats of Wet and Wild's Wild Shine nail polish in French White crème and then two coats of Ulta's Baby Doll.

Also, I made drill team! Ah, I'm so excited! I still have to finish my state mandated science and history test so regular posts will still have to wait.

Cheap jewelry site?

Friday, April 6, 2012

I was watching some youtube videos and I came across a review for this cheap jewelry website, I don't have money to spend on jewelry right now, but I wanted to share this with you in case you did have some money. It's all really cheap and adorable. There are plenty of reviews on youtube if your interested in looking at the quality of the pieces, but I haven't seen any videos that give bad reviews.
Here are just a few pieces that I thought were really cute.

Skin Care Routine!

Sunday, April 1, 2012

Hey girls! Today's post is about my skin care routine. I am a teenager that is VERY rpone to breakouts without enough money to buy an expensive skin care regimen. This skin care routine is made up of drugstore products, and although it does not completely clear up my face, it's the clearest it's ever been. I try not to be too harsh on my skin, or use too many products.
1. Clean and Clear Morning Burst Shine Control Facial Cleanser (review here)
In the morning, I don't like to use an acne fighting cleanser because it irritated and dried out my skin in the past. So instead, I use this product that wakes me up while cleaning my skin.

2. Clean and Clear Mattiyfing Mousturizer
Because I have very oily skin and live qwhere it is not uncommon for it to be in the triple-digits, anything that is mattifying is my best friend. I was actually pleasantly surprised with this moisturizer because it really did help mattify my face. It wasn't too greasy (which is great during the day) but still moisturizes your face and it has SPF 15.

3. The last thing I use in the morning, is the ProActive Daily Oil Control. My sister used the ProActive system and didn't want this. It does really help with oily skin, but I don't think I will repurchase when I run out. I only wear this whenever I am wearing makeup for the day.

Nightly routine:
1. After removing my makeup with whatever makeup reover I am using for the time, I use the Clearasil Ultra
Daily Face Wash. It's a reallly nice facial cleanser designed to fight acne.

2. At night, I use the Clean and Clear Advantages moisturizer. It's really moisturizing and does leave my face a little bit greasier which is why I use it at night.

3. The last thing I use daily is the Clearasil Ultra Spot Treatment. It really helps, A LOT for specific acne marks.

Twice a weak:
1. To exfoliate my skin, I use the Clearasil Ultra Rapid Action Acne Scrub. It works really well, but I can't use it very often as that would be too ebrasive on my skin.

I hope you all enjoyed! If you want reviews on any of these products, comment down below.
