For My Dry Skin Ladies...

Thursday, May 24, 2012

Oh helllllo blog world! I wanted to let some of you out there with slightly oily to dry skin know about a tinted moisturizer that would be great for summer wear! It is the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer. First- I will give you a back story on this: I wanted to try the oil-free version for the longest time! So I finally got a sample of it as well as the oil free primer. As much as I loveeeee my LM Foundation Powder I previously posted about, I did not love this stuff on me : ( I have very oily skin, and these two just made it worse! However, it led me to the conclusion that it is EXTREMELY moisturizing. This is the oil-free type, so I can only imagine how moisturizing the normal one is! Basically, after my trial with it, I just wanted to let you girls know that Laura Mercier is an awesome brand, and if you are searching for a summer makeup that will give you moderate coverage (& SPF!) then I really think you should look into either the original, or oil-free tinted moisturizer! I know this is a bit all over the place (sorry!) but I am just excited to get this up for you as soon as possible : ) I will link Sephora's website to the original and oil-free version for reviews so you can get more opinions on it.

I Must Love Floral.. Another OOTD : )

Wednesday, May 23, 2012

I wanted to share a recent outfit I wore this past weekend... I wore it to my university's carnival, which is one of the biggest school sponsored events we have. I know I just posted an outfit, but I have these photos all ready to go, and until this crazy exam schedule gets settled down, I will be doing less detailed posts (I'm sorrrrrrrry!). This post is pretty picture heavy, but since my friend took the time to take these for me, I did not want them all to go to waste! What I wore: 

Floral dress from Hollister, belt from Forever 21. Awkward pose-courtesy of my friend taking my outfit picture for the first time! : )
My friend Allison that took these really wanted me to take one like this-here it is for you Allison!

 We didn't get a full shot with the shoes. So here they are! The sandals are from Pacsun, necklace is from Forever 21 of course!

& lastly, a picture from yours truly... let's just dedicate this smile to all of the lovely comments I get from you all : )

Thank you for reading; & thanks to Allison for the pictures!

Dupes? Send Requests My Way!

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

I wanted to do a post in the near future about dupes-which if you are unfamiliar with this makeup term, it means "duplicate". Send me ideas about products that may be higher end, too pricey, or hard to get your hands on, and I will do my best to compose a list of dupes (alternatives) that are similar to or almost replicates of the product you are curious about! This way, you can have the products for yourself if there was something holding you back from owning them! Just leave me them in the comments, or email them to me at
Have a great day : )

Sheer Floral Outfit & a Puppy!

Sunday, May 20, 2012

I wanted to get this post up sooner than this (about a week sooner-oops!) But I did some other posts first, so here it is now: )  I went over to my boyfriends friends house last weekend, and this is what I wore:
White shorts from JcPenny, braided belt and sheer floral tank from Forever 21, peach bandeau from American Eagle.
Sadly, I did not get a picture of the shoes as they are a bit torn up... they weren't anything special really, just a pair of sandals similar to this:
Mine are white strapped though! This particular pair is from Forever 21.

A shot up close.

These were taken courtesy of my boyfriend Eric.
Now on to something adorable! The last time I visited home, I took a picture of my sister's son, Kierce, with their new puppy:
So cute! I ask for a "real" smile and this is what he gives!

I just thought I would add that in here, because I have no idea where else I would put this picture haha. But I wanted to share : )

Have you tried wearing bandeau tops? If so, what is your favorite way to style them?
