Khaki Blazer: XI Clothing
Bangles: Bakers
Shoes: Bakers

The Tribal Print Jumpsuit + NOTM

Hello, loves!
Since I've been on such a JUMPSUIT high lately, I figured I would do an outfit of the day featuring my tribal print jumpsuit! Also, I dyed my hair!! It's the most obvious in the first picture. I literally had JET BLACK HAIR, so this is a HUGE transition for me and I am still getting used to it.

What do you think of my new hair color?!

Target likes my money

Hello, my loves!
Yesterday I took my boyfriend's little sister out. Started our day off with Starbucks, did some shopping in between, and ended it with dinner at Ajisen Ramen then some Boba. It was a VERY good day. I love my bf's little sister as if she's my own. She's only 15 and she's soooo adorably cute.

Anywho, one of our stops yesterday was Target. I initially walked in because I knew they had my bank's ATM machine in there, so I was only going to withdraw some cash and then leave. But of course, we ended up walking around, and next thing I knew...there was a whole bunch of stuff in my hands. =/

Satchel: original price-$24.99, sale price-$19.99

Cross-body Bag: original price-$14.99, sale price-$11.99

I never walk through their purse section. However, I decided to check it out, especially since the zipper on my every day purse just broke. I needed a new one and saw that they were having a sale on their hand bags. I ended up with 2. -___-

Shampoo & Conditioner: $5.99 each
 I am a HUGE fan of the Loreal sulfate-free shampoo&conditioner. I noticed that I don't shed as much as I used to, and my hair is definitely a lot less frizzy. I purchased this kind because it is specifically for color treated hair, and I just dyed my hair a few days ago.
Yes To Carrots Hair Mask: $12.99

Crest 3D White Mouth Wash: $6.99
EOS Lip balm: $3.29 (from Rite Aid)

I have never tried any of the Yes To products, so I thought I would give their Yes To Carrots hair mask a shot. I have never used a hair mask before, but I'm really trying to keep my hair nice and healthy. I read amazing reviews on this product, so I'm excited to use it myself!

The Crest 3D White mouth wash is pretty self explanatory. I wanted to whiten my teeth again. I've used white strips before (like, 4 years ago), but I just didn't feel like spending $30-$40 on strips again. I did my research and saw that the Crest 3D White mouth wash gives the exact same results, but of course, it will take a little bit longer. For only $6.99 for that huge bottle...I'm down.

Finally, I've been dying to see what all the hype is about when it comes to the EOS lip balms. So I finally pulled the trigger and purchased one from Rite Aid. I bought the Tangerine one, which is supposed to be medicated. I really like medicated lip balms. This definitely does not smell as good as the other ones, but with only 1 use, I am definitely enjoying how my lips feel!

If you have used any of these products, let me know what you think! I would love your feedback! Positive OR negative!

See you in my next post! <3

Sprucin' Up For Spring

Hey, Dolls!
I am so loving the trends for this spring. All the florals and the corals (lol), all the crop tops, jumpsuits, and rompers...I love it ALL! Recently, I've just been popping my head into Forever 21 to take a look around...and then something bad happens. I find something, then I find another something...and those somethings turn into about 4-5 somethings! OHMYGASH! This happened to me twice, where I would just go in to "look around," and end up buying all this stuff. Hmph! Thought I woulda learned my lesson the first time, huh? However, to compensate, no single item that I've purchased is over $15.50. Pretty good, right? Marshall's also has some awesome spring stuff right now also! (This was not all purchased at once)

Marshall's Haul
Each top was $12.99

Denim Shorts: $14.99

Forever 21 Haul
Romper: $11:50

Sheer Floral Top: $12.50
Beige Cardigan: $13.80
Each Jumpsuit was $15.50 except for the last one, which was $14.80
Red Skirt: $5.00

Olive Green Shorts: $11.50
Comfiest wedges ever!
You've seen these before, this is just a better picture. =)

I'm so excited to wear all these pieces! Hope you have a wonderful week, loves!

See you in my next post. <3

Lace and Coral

Hello, Loves!
I'm so in love with the trends for this spring! I purchased this baby pink lacey top yesterday (amongst other things) at Marshall's for only $12.99! (HAUL coming soon) I just HAD to use it today! Socal weather has been so wishy washy (what's new). It was actually fairly chilly today, compared to the last few days where it was unbearably hot! I decided to wear this outfit anyway since I was mostly going to be indoors. =) Plus, I REALLY wanted to wear these shoes todaay. haha!


Pink lace top: Marshall's
Black shorts: Forever 21
Shoes: Bakers (H by Halston)

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend so far! See you in my next post! <3

Feelin' Girly

Hello my loves!
The weather is BEAUTIFUL today and I'm officially on SPRING BREAK! whee!! I did my nails pretty simple, just a few flowery designs. I was in a girly mood, so I thought...FLOWERS! Plus it's spring, yenno?? I am also LOVING this shade of red. It's so bright and fun!

Without flash

With flash


I also purchased that huge bottle of Out The Door Topcoat. I've heard good things about that stuff, so I wanted to give it a try. So far, so good. My nails were good to go in only a few minutes!

I also want to talk about the Gelous Advanced Gel Nail Coat. I am SUPER impressed with this stuff. Usually, by day 3, I can already see a little bit of chipping, especially around my cuticles. However, after 5 days, I felt as if my nails looked just as good as they did the first day I applied this manicure. I also love how it makes my nails look almost acrylic-like. I don't like acrylic nails, but I do like the way the look. (does that make sense?) So, for me to be able to achieve that look without actually having to apply fake nails makes me VERY HAPPY!

Hope you are having a LOVELY day today! See you in my next post! <3
