Pink Pants, Anyone?

Hello, Dolls!

I purchased this pair of peachy/pink jeans from Forever 21. They were only $13.50, so I figured...why not? Jean's aren't always my favorite thing to wear, but having them in a different color made it quite enjoyable! Since the weather in Socal likes to have major mood swings, I thought that this would be a great way to still (kinda) keep myself warm when it's raining, while staying in the mood of spring.


I hope you enjoyed! And I hope you have a LOVELY weekend! I know I will...MY BOYFRIEND IS COMING HOME TOMORROW!! =D =D

A Neutral OOTD

Hello, Loves!
This time last week, I was wearing sun dresses and short shorts. Today, I am rocking a blazer and a scarf. Even though it is typical for SOCAL weather to be so wishy washy...I don't think I will ever get used to it. It even RAINED yesterday, and it's supposed to rain again tomorrow. WHOMP! My closet is full of florals and bright colors...they just wanna be worn already!!

sorry for the terrible quality!!

Hope you guys enjoyed and I'll see you in my next post! <3

Feeling a little

Hello, dolls!
I was in a nautical mood a few days ago and came up with this nail design.

L-R: Lapis of Luxury, The "IT" Color, Dating a Royal, Mermaid's Tears, Skulls and Glossbones, Silver Shatter
I have been so good at not buying nail polishes. My brother and sister-in-law were in town and she wanted to go to the place where I buy all my polishes, so I took her. And well...this is what happened. The last 3 polishes are from the Pirates of the Caribbean collection. Those are the only 2 polishes (besides the silver shatter) that appealed to me. As for the rest of the colors, I have nothing like them in my collection yet. So that's that.

I hope you enjoyed and see you in my next post! <3

DIY Nail Polish Rack

Hello, Loves!
If you are anything like me, (which I know SEVERAL of you are), then you LOVE to collect nail polishes. I have so many polishes that I don't even know what to do with myself. So I have been in need for a nail polish rack. I have so many polishes that go unused because they are all stored in a bin, and the ones aaaallll the way in the back never get any lovin. I have been on the hunt for a decently priced nail polish rack, but I am too cheap (or thrifty, rather) to spend $40.00 on one. I've even checked ebay and amazon, and there is nothing that ever really catches my eye. SO...I decided to make my own. =)


This rack holds 36 OPI & China Glaze polishes. Not too shabby, huh? If you have a lot of smaller polishes, like Essie, then it will definitely hold a LOT more! Total, I spent about $6! Definitely beats $40.00, and I had so much fun putting it together! I had Hello Kitty ribbon lying around at home (and I am OBSESSED with HK), so I was able to spruce it up and add my own touches to this project. Plus, the ribbon helped hide the imperfections. ;) This was a complete test run and to be honest, I had no idea how this was gonna turn out. I kinda just thought of ideas as I went. Not bad for a trial run, huh?

I have one more rack to put together, so if you want to know how I did this, let me know in the comments below, and I can definitely do that. =D I am SO not an artsy fartsy person, but I'd like to think that I did an O.K. job. LOL!

Hope you enjoyed my little DIY project! See you in my next post! =D

E.L.F. Haul [First Online Order]

Hello, my loves!!
I made my very first online E.L.F. towards the end of April, and I received my package sometime in the beginning of May. It took 6 days to get to my house, which I am happy about because the tracking device said that it would take about 8! We all know that E.L.F. is an EXTREMELY INEXPENSIVE brand. They sell SOME E.L.F. products at Target, but not too much. When I decided to browse their website, I saw that they were having a 50% off sale on their Studio Line cosmetics. I believe that most of their studio line is only $3, which meant that everything I purchased was only $1.50. That is a steal !!

Conditioning Lip Balm: Peaceful Pink

Conditioning Lip Balm: Romantic Rouge
Blush: Pink Passion

Blush: Tickled Pink

Blush: Peachy Keen
Contouring Blush and Bronzer Duo

Cream Eyeliner: Black

Treat & Tame (Eyebrows)

Professional Brush Belt retails for $15.00
I have definitely tried out MOST of these products. The only things that I haven't tried out are the Pink Passion blush and the Peachy Keen blush. So far, I'm loving every single product that I purchased!

Check out the video for swatches! =)

Hope you enjoyed and I'll see you in my next post! <3

Retro Inspired-Neutral Color Blocked NOTM

I feel like I haven't posted on here in AGES! I've been so busy with school and work, but it feels good to post something again. The weather here has been making me VERY happy lately! Too bad I'm always stuck in doors. =/

Color blocking is so in for this season! The whole 70's retro theme is coming back, and I wanted to portray that on my nails. I used neutral tones in order to make this look a little bit more wearable.

OPI Dulce De Lechu, Essie In Stitches, Essie Tart Deco, Sinful Colors Nail Art Polish in Black

I hope you guys enjoy and I'll see u in my next post!! <3
