Well not really an outfit of the day but it is a pic of three items I am wearing today  :). 

All items bought at T.J. Maxx

First we have a basic red/dark orange cami. 

On top of that I'm wearing a an asymmetrical  top, the back is a camel colored jersey material and the reason I bought this top is because of the gloriously fun neon scarlet elephants pattern. The second I saw the  shirt it reminded me of the marching pink elephants from Dumbo and I had to have it. 
Lastly I have on a blue button up denim mix shirt and I love it so much. It is absolutely my favorite item at the moment and I have to stop myself from finding ways to wear it every day. 
Perhaps Ill do a different ways of wearing it post once finals are over, if i don't wear it out by then.

Here's a better pic of my Shine of the Times mani from the last post. You can see the rose gold color much  better in daylight.

Ta ta for now

Sunset On My Tips

Hola Lola,

Regretfully I do not know any Lola's, though I'm sure if I were to meet one she would be endlessly fascinating. I do however enjoy saying hola lola and will continue to do so in the hopes that I will finally meet a fascinating lady named Lola. For tonight I give you my nails of the day and lips of the day. Sorry about the crummy pic, my camera has been kaput and so I use my phone.

Now ignore the horrible picture and just imagine having all the gorgeous rose gold, orange and reds of a holographic sunset on your nails. That is what Essie's Shine of the Times does to your nails. I know this is meant to be on top of another color and it is beautiful like that as well but I decided to give it a go on its own. It took three coats for me to achieve a really solid covering of the holographic particles but it was pretty in one or two coats as well. Its not an in your face color but it gives amazing dimension to your nails and really does look like a sunset.

This lip color is a balm/lipstick from Aerie that's ages old and I don't think in existence anymore but it can easily be duplicated by a Revlon lip butter or fuchsia lip stain and gloss. I don't normally like having shiny lips and contrary to this picture the lipstick provides a sheer wash of color that can be built up with a nice sheen to it, and it super moisturizing! 

That's all for tonight, I do have my last ever finals week for school coming up so posts might be delayed for a while. 

Have a dandy night,

Baubles and Bling

Hello Hello,

It is a gorgeous day outside and I want to run through campus singing with the birds....yes I have contemplated that. However, I will not embarrass all my lovely friends and boyfriend by doing so. I will instead tell you about an amazing site I recently discovered that has all sorts of pretty jewelry and accessories at discount prices.

Drum Roll please............(I know you're all waiting with baited breath) is the site to check out.

Here are some of my favorite things in my cart right now.
Delicate sideways cross bracelet

I love this ring, its perfect for glamming up a basic outfit

I am currently a very poor college student and I certainly do love my jewelry and shiny things, this site has a variety of styles and pieces at discount prices and I am loving it. There are two things you have to do to access all the goodies:

1. Create a free account, you cant see the prices until you do
2. Because it is a wholesale site, you have to buy at least $50 of things.

 I know that might sound pretty daunting, but if you get a couple of friends together and buy as a group or just want to treat yourself its a great tool. With the average price of jewelry being around $10-$15 and most pieces under $10 you're definitely getting your money's worth.

I hope you guys like the site, and let me know what you get :).

More pretty things!

I've been wanting an evil eye necklace since Michelle1218 wore one in a video. Some of you probably know her, she is one of my favorite Youtube guru's. It was such a pretty delicate piece that I cant wait to get this one.  
And these turquoise earrings, well what can I say except that they're fabulous.

Love you all please follow if you like me too :)

The Good, The Best & The Sticky

Hello lovelies,

So I have been gone for ever and suffice it to say life was far to busy in the meanwhile. However it has been successfully busy so I will not mourn my lack of free time too much. My dance team raised over $1000 for donation through a charity showcase that we organize and as Captain it certainly kept me very involved; also  I'm looking at a potential full time position/promotion at work, which will be fantastic as unfortunately I will soon no longer be a carefree university student :(.

Well enough of the sad stuff, I have my mug of tea on hand as I bravely hazard my first product review (I'm shaking in my not so fashionable pajamas).

Lets get the bad out of the way, to be perfectly honest the reason I stopped wearing and buying lip glosses in high school was because of the sheer sticky factor, and frankly the Juicy Tube has given me flashbacks to the days of glitter blush and hair on my lips with the slightest draft.
Here it what the product description says:
This ultra shiny gloss sweeps on a sheer, sexy wash of color in a variety of shades and flavors. You’ll love the ultra-glossy formula that glides on easily with its tube-tip applicator. Perfectly portable, this essential gloss discreetly slips in a pocket or purse for a quick fix of fabulous anytime.
Now it certainly is portable and will definitely slip into a pocket or purse easily which is where the appeal ends for me. In the tube it shows as a beautiful rosy/coral color with golden shimmer spread throughout. It gives me dreams of having gorgeous pinky lips perfect for the spring. These dreams do not come true :(, on first application the color disappears almost entirely and indeed becomes an extremely sheer shadow of the color in the tube with what looks like an overdose of glitter. Now all of this wouldn't be too bad if it felt amazing and gave me moisturized lips. 

It does not.

It does however, feel as if I have coated my lips in a mixture of glue and grease, and the sticky feeling continues long after I have wiped it off because it leaves a residue. Now I did wear this on its own at first but when I tried it a second time paired over my Revlon peach lipstick with a slight application on the pout it made a very pretty effect and did minimize the stickyness some, I will not be repurchasing though because with the amount of product I use and how much is in the tube it is sure to last me quite a while. 

Now the good stuff, I am a true to heart lipstick girl. If I'm going to wear any makeup at all (and most days i'm to lazy to) I'll have a swipe of lipstick and it instantly makes me feel more glam and put together. Currently I'm loving Revlon's Peach and Rosy Nude lipsticks. 

Revlon Peach 075

Revlon Peach is gorgeous true peach tone that can be sheer or built up and Rosy Nude is my absolute favorite everyday go to lipstick. In the tube it looks like pinkish mauve toned color, on the lips its buttery soft, moisturizing, and a beautiful natural pink tone that doesn't disappear but makes my lips look better. I would recommend these two colors for most skin tones as they complement my Indian coloring as well as my lovely white friends as well. 

Revlon Rosy Nude
Now while the two lipsticks are may day to day products the Red Velvet Lip Butter is not only my going out product but easily wearable as a stain for daily use as well. As the name implies it is a creamy smooth formula with rich coloring. I would say that it is a perfect blend between a balm and lipstick.  Not a true bright red its rich maroon tones looks more sophisticated and is far more wearable. It also gives a slight shine to your lips without any of the stickyness. Definitely an ideal product, I will have to try one of the more natural looking colors and I might have found my new go to product.
 Well thats all for today, hope everyone is enjoying the gorgeous weather and Ill see  you soon and more regularly ;).
