Confessions of a Shopaholic: Spring Obsessions Floral Fashion Haul

Hey everyone, so I’m working really hard on getting a huge long list of blogs that need to be posted up. The list is about 8 pages long (12 point font Georgia) so you can only imagine how frustrated I am and how far behind I’ve gotten without a computer!

These posts I’m going to post tonight are drafts that have been sitting in my queue simply waiting to go up. They’re mostly from Spring time so bare with me!

During Spring I was hugely obsessed with florals (now it’s more neutrals like brown and nude + plaids of course!) I went out on a shopping spring and got lots of floral everything! Clothing, undies, phone cases, etc. this pink floral case is actually still my phones current case (mainly because I have the Rose Gold iPhone SE and it matches!)

IMG_0274

This shirt was the best thing I ever bought and I think I’ll wear it to school tomorrow simply because! It’s sheer but only cost me $3! 

IMG_0279

Love the mini specs of lavender/lilac thrown onto the shirt!

IMG_0300

I also got a few other items including a new ance gel (ironically I never used it it’s still brand new) and a primer for my face. My false eyelashes haven’t been worn either I’ve been waiting for an event or a photo shoot that calls for it. 

Another thing I’ve been in love with are these fruit gummies they’re so good they got their own review (next blog!) so stay tuned! Sorry for my lack of posting! I’ll be replacing my stolen laptop (FINALLY) mid-September! That’ll help get me back on track ūüôā

I also hope to post quite a few blogs tonight so sorry in advance for the spam! xo

How To Style: Gold VS Gold (Classy & Casual) – SammyDress.com (Part One)

Hey my loves! So my latest shoot features the lovely accessories from SammyDress.com! The first accessory is this amazing GOLD Sequin clutch handbag that can be used for upscale classy events OR casual everyday looks! I wanted to do both, so I decided to show you how to do it!

13719484_1377899452227212_1374476399114173717_o

The purse has two different handles the short wrist one (above) and a long chain (below in second outfit).

For the classier look I went with a bohemian vibe because I owned the perfect skirt to match the bag!

For look #1 the “casual” look I paired it with a summer fun “n” fruity “Sequin Pineapple Racerback Tank Top” off my new collection for my clothing line. ¬†The sequins of the shirt went perfect with the sequins on the purse. ¬†I didn’t want to OVER do the sequins tho so since the purse has so many sequins I made sure to pair it with something that only had a SMALL amount of sequins.

Be sure to HYPE Look #1

Askirt_28529

Look #2 is definitely more upscale and the skirt (it’s a skirt paired with a DRESS that’s BACKWARDS!) went PERFECTLY with the clutch it was amazing. ¬†The top half is the back part of an off-white dress. ¬†I wore it backwards so I could have the deep V-Neck style for the look. ¬†The skirt is a maxi skirt that is also off-white but covered in gold sequins! I decided to wear flat sandals for a bohemian look rather than heels. ¬†Especially with the location choice for the shoot I thought the sandals would go perfect and really bring the outfit all together.

The sequin clutch can be worn literally with any style if you pair it right! Definitely one of my new staple accessories!

How To Style: Pink Triangle Purse & Ankle Booties “Illuminati Status” – SammyDress.com (Part TWO)

For the NEXT accessory from SammyDress.com I put together more of a “City/Street” look. ¬†I was aiming for New York, but might be TOO LA for anything else. HA! The pink Triangle Gold Studded Handbag is REALLY adorable. ¬†I had to have it the minute I saw it! It zips on the side but ends at the top so you can tell the purse is a triangle shape. ¬†I keep thinking “Illuminati” status LOL.

Anyways, the ankle boots are also from SammyDress.com and could be paired perfectly with EITHER of these purses which is a huge reason why I decided to get them! I love Ankle Boots simply because they’re high heeled but still boots so they can also be worn classy or casual depending on how you style them ūüėČ

Since I’m heading back to school this fall, a lot of my shopping choices are based on outfits or items that I would wear to school. I want to start wearing a LOT more heels just to practice my walking since I haven’t worn any in a while. ¬†Figured ankle boots would be a great way to start before smashing around in full stilettos!

Hype this look!

How To Style: Floppy Sun Hats (Scala Collezione)

Hey everyone!¬†So one of my all time favorite things about having curly hair, is that when you’re having a bad hair day all you need is a hat or a beanie and you’re good to go! ¬†I’m only saying that because even though it “covers” your curls… it really doesn’t cover your curls and the part that it covers is usually the part that won’t cooperate! ¬†Another great thing that I love about covering your hair with hats is the many different STYLES you get to choose from! ¬†The ALL TIME PERFECT style for Summer time, is of course, FLOPPY HATS!

I was given the opportunity to try out one of these new amazingly cute fuchsia floppy hats from the Scala Callezione collection for this Summer! ¬†I’m SO IN LOVE! I have so many different pink clothes that I can wear with it! And it’s PERFECT for the beach!! So I decided to style it two different ways!

The absolute great thing about these hats is that they fit ANY facial structure, come in multiple colors and are the PERFECT summer accessory for protecting your skin while looking cute by the beach or the pool!

Look #1
Casual Cali Tank w/ Jeans

It’s so perfect for lounging around in the sun with a smoothie or milk shake. It shades your face perfectly and protects your skin from damage that the sun causes!

“It’s Forest Gump Related” (1970’s “Jenny” Lifestyle Editorial)

“It’s Forrest Gump RelI bated” was originally inspired by Kesha back in 2010/2011. However, one photo in this shoot stood out from the rest to me. It reminds me of a specific character from a popular movie. “Jenny” the love of Forrest Gump’s life. For some reason after seeing the photos the name never shook. Before we get the THE photo (or photos since there’s a good FIVE of them that make the Forest thing real), here are some other photos from the shoot.
Taken in Riverside, CA.

Shot by: Devon VP Photography
Styling, MUA & Hair: Rose Pendleton
Jewelry: Vintage, Thrift Stores, Handmade, Venice Beach, I’m A Jerk Industries, Designers, Pop Up Shops
Belt Buckle: Clandestine Industries
Fringe Bag: Wet Seal
Boots: JCPenney’s

So the first part of the shoot isn’t really related so you’re probably looking at confused like you have no idea what I’m talking about. Especially since the outfit isn’t really VINTAGE and comes no where near the 1970’s! ¬†It was originally inspired by KESHA back when she wore feathers non-stop in 2010. After seeing the LAST part of the shoot for some reason I couldn’t stop thinking it reminded me of Forest Gump.
Let’s start at the beginning of the shoot!¬†
 img_3859-1
So, you might recognize some of these photos because I have posted them before. ¬†HOWEVER, I found the DISC with BOTH outfits on it and HQ resolution so I nipped my favs and here they are! (Well there’s TOO many so they’re all in the GALLERY) these are SOME of my favs! Check out the entire shoot before you leave!
img_3860-1
img_3884
img_3885
img_3863
The water was very green and dirty. It’s used for fishing not swimming!
img_3861
Back in 2010-2012 I was very obsessed with feathers. This feather was from the ground (not the best idea) LOL I DID LOVE all the twisted tree vines and the photos came out good very lifestyle editorial I think.
img_3871
img_3870
My style was all over the place during those years! I was into fashion but knew nothing about it at the time ūüėõ I would wear JEANS AND T-SHIRTS TO RED CARPET EVENTS! It’s weird to look at a timeline of my style. It’s changed so much. I’m really proud!
img_3869
img_3868
Then we found a little spot that looked like a beach OASIS type deal! Or I think so anyway lol
img_3865
img_3854-1
img_3872
img_3874
img_3882
img_3873
Here is an up close shot of the jewelry pieces. ¬†They are handmade or vintage pieces that I got from antique stores or thift stores or designer pieces. ¬†The feather in my hair is obviously my clothing line I’m A Jerk Industries from way back when.
img_3880
NOW! We’ve reached the last section(s) of the photoshoot. ¬†The part that begins to remind me of the character JENNY from Forest Gump!
PART ONE – The Bus Stop / “PEACE” from War by the Army Tank
img_3878
The entire movie revolves around a bus stop so I don’t really need to explain that one…
img_3877
img_3876
Smiling isn’t probably the BEST way to act when protesting for PEACE against WAR but…
PART TWO – Fishing. ¬†Guess it doesn’t really have anything to do with the movie, but I love how they’re silhouettes and not images of me.
img_3888
img_3890
FINAL PART – LEAVING/WALKING AWAY
this is the PART that I looked at the photos and said “It’s Forest Gump related…” I’m not sure why they remind me so much of her walking away but they do…
img_3891-1
img_3896-1
img_3897-1
img_3892-1
img_3898-1
img_3894
img_3879
This last photo is my ALL TIME FAVORITE from the entire set… I have no idea why, I just like my facial expression mixed with my hair, the outfit and the location. ¬†It’s an “in action” shot when I turned around.. REMEMBER this isn’t ALL of the photos! All of the EDITED photos can be found in the GALLERY¬†OR you can view all of the UNEDITED photos (some are very dark and underexposed) on my FLICKR page.
Also, this is a rather OLD shoot so I posted this look on my Lookbook SEVERAL years ago, but feel free to HYPE my look if you like it! x

Beauty Basics: Spring’s MUST HAVE Scent(s) – Watermelon Lemonade!

IMG_0388

IMG_0348

My all time favorite scent for Spring has officially changed! Last year I was in love with “Love & Sunshine” the Spring scent from Bath & Body works but it’s officially moved over for my new favorite!

Watermelon Lemonade, a smell so sweet I stocked up on scented candles, soap, lotion, hand sanitizers, if they had it, I bought it! It’s such a perfect scent for both Spring & Summer. Not floral but fruity with a bit of tart exactly as its described… It smells so great I want to eat it! My second favorite scent is the “Georgia Peach” it’s also another fruity one. Maybe I’m tired of the floral scents and need a change but all my favorites this year are fruit based. Third place is the Raspberry Vanilla.

What are your favorite scents during these hot, sticky months? xo

Confessions of a Shopaholic: Bath & Body Works Beauty Haul

Hey guys! I’m SO EXCITED RIGHT NOW! I FINALLY GOT AROUND TO TAKING PHOTOS OF ALL MY BEAUTY PRODUCTS!! They’ve been sitting inside of a bag waiting to be shot but I haven’t needed them until now, so I decided to shoot them in honor of my shopping spree this past weekend… LOL¬†ūüôā

So, these are mostly from Bath & Body Works. I got quite a few things from hand soap, to lotions, body wash, lots of hand sanitizer, etc. ¬†I’ve split it into sections to make it very easy to explain… or easy for me to explain, not for you guys to understand hahah.

IMG_0307

This has seven different sections: the spring scent OG, new scents/soaps, makeup, hand sanitizers & scented candles, hair, “my personal SPA” supplies, skincare & the makeup removing supplies

IMG_0311

Obviously you guys are very familiar with my favorite facial care products/masks from Freeman’s Feeling Beautiful line. Below you can see a “Yes To” mud mask that I want to try and never have. ¬†I have tried “Yes To” products before and love them.

IMG_0313

This is my “SPA” supplies section including bath salts, facial scrub, facial cucumber mask/accessories, baby powder, and a green organic soap.

IMG_0335

I had a lot of problems getting photos of these hand sanitizers… I already used all of my Watermelon Lemonade one which is my new FAVORITE scent for Spring. ¬†I bought it in EVERYTHING from soap, to candles even my plug in air freshner was Watermelon Lemonade! More on that deliciousness later…

IMG_0344

Again sorry for the horrible photo. ¬†I’m so glad Bath & Body works kept this one around! This was my favorite last year so I got it in everything from body mist to lotion, soap & extra lotion… Don’t ask it was an accident haha!

IMG_0348

My scented candles are amazing. ¬†Georgia Peach is my second favorite of their new scents. ¬†It’s really peachy. ¬†Much like summertime air. Behind it are clothes and makeup wipes, etc.

IMG_0351

This is my wall plug in air freshener. ¬†I already went through all of my Watermelon Lemonade and need to go get more!¬†ūüôĀ

IMG_0374

This is my new favorite thing on the planet and can be used for ANYTHING. My next blog will be a review of it and a more in depth of why I love it so much<3

IMG_0231

These are not from my Bath & Body Works Haul, but it seemed more appropriate to add them with makeup/beauty than fashion. ¬†I’ve never tried fake lashes before except when I’ve had them put on me by a professional makeup artist. ¬†ELF was selling things for $1 each so I got a couple lashes, a new Face Primer and some Acne Gel from Target.

IMG_0235

I cannot wait to try lashes though! Any tips for putting them on for the first time?

IMG_0366

This was everything… the section dead in the middle was my hand soap, body wash and this amazing lemon scented lotion that I love but my mom hates… HAHA! I also got a bunch of hair ties in every color you can possibly imagine. Whats your favorite scent/smell for this season or Summer? x

Confessions of a Shopaholic: Spring Sheets – Mint Green

So, I decided to go out with my mom to get some new sheets this past weekend because she needed some for her bed and I realized I actually needed some for mine too!  I was torn between two colors: mint green and coral.

Coral is a bit of an orange-red-pink color, I have a coral lipstick, I think it would of looked really cool because my walls are blue and I’m a diehard Bronco’s fan but my mom said it looked like a burnt orange… ultimately I went with the softer Mint Green sheets which were Vintage Prewashed and look AMAZING. ¬†I needed a second pillowcase but they only sell two so now I have an extra case… but the sheets & the pillowcases both came with bags so I’m going to use the little bags for things¬†ūüôā

IMG_0210

IMG_0220

I also think the mint green will be a great backdrop in the future for photos of makeup & beauty products etc. ¬†I tried it out tonight actually and I think it’s a lot better than the dark purple I was using before… the lighter color is less distracting. ¬†Either way, I love the color and feel of my new sheets! So in love with everything… now to get a third pillow for the extra pillow case… lol

What color are your sheets? x

How To Style: Chrissy’s Knee High Socks (Geeky Irish Gamer – PART FIVE)

Before we begin, I want to apologize for the quality of the photos… I had trouble finding a photographer within the timeframe for St. Patrick’s Day that I wanted so my best friend helped me out and he’s not a photographer… I tried to coach him, but apparently Rome wasn’t built in a day and I’m sorry…
Alright everyone! This is the LAST and final look for my style posts with Chrissy’s Knee High Socks! ¬†Unfortunately the timing didn’t work out as planned and these we’re supposed to be posted on ST. PATRICK’S DAY but, they were not due to me changing hosts on my blog… so the theme is a little off for April, but just pretend it’s not because I’m IRISH all year round! Really… I am.
Now, this last look is a little different than the others. ¬†Since I covered everything from casual, to boho/hippie, to stoner, to raver, the last one is WAY more casual, so casual, you shouldn’t wear it outside… but sometimes you want to look cute around the house too! ¬†Socks are definitely good for lounging around and watching TV in!
img_7891
img_7899-2
img_7908-1
These first three are “getting ready” / candid shots. ¬†I was trying to get the camera to focus on the mirror because it’s a cute mirror but the photo didn’t come out as planned (the second one) so I had my best friend retake it (which is the first).
The shoot was supposed to be a “geeky” video gamer that’s sexy underneath you know what I mean? ¬†I took a few photos out of the blog but they can be viewed in the gallery… they were a little blurry so I didn’t want to post them¬†BUT I had to REPOST one, because it’s the only one that has the belt in the picture… so I’m sorry that it’s blurry…
img_7903-1
img_7902-1
img_7904-2
I don’t want to say it’s “slowly stripping” but yeah, it was supposed to be me slowly getting “comfortable” for my house to play a video game.
img_7905-1
img_7906-1
img_7907-1
I literally put on every piece of green jewelry that I own. The guitar shaped purse sitting on the bed is apart of the look.
img_7898-2
img_7895-1
img_7897-2
img_7900-2
img_7894
img_7890-1
img_7892
This is a combination of “my St. Patrick’s Day shoot” as well as the sock styling because I loved the colors of green on the socks and St. Patrick’s Day is one of my favorite holidays because I’m Irish.
img_7893-1
img_7909-3
That’s a four leaf clover on the undies ūüėČ See? That’s what the entire shoot was based on! ¬†What do you think? Obviously not an outfit to go out in public so it won’t be posted on my Lookbook, but would you rock this in your house with the socks? ¬†Or would you at least wear the socks to bed during winter nights? ūüôā
Again, there’s a couple that I took out of the blog but can be viewed in the gallery… and now that you’ve seen ALL FIVE of the looks, which one is more you? ¬†The stoner, the hippie, the raver, the classic chic or the Irish geeky gamer?

How To Style: Chrissy’s Knee High Socks (Purple Chic – PART FOUR)

Second to last look of the Chrissy’s Knee High Socks styles! ¬†This look is a lot more upscale and classy. ¬†The socks were simple black knee highs with dark purple stripes at the top. ¬†Purple is my favorite color if you couldn’t tell HAHA! ¬†This shoot has a LOT more photos to it than the last so I’m not sure if I will post them ALL in the blog, but they will all be in the gallery so you can check them out!
I went with purple jewelry, the necklace and earrings match each other. ¬†The hair was curly and tossed over for a wild, yet cool look for a simple night out on the town with friends or switch the shorts for a pencil skirt and you’re off to your office job! ¬†It covers everything so it’s definitely work appropriate!

img_7869
img_7870
Much more laid back and “older” for those who aren’t in their early twenties anymore!
img_7871-2
img_7872-1
img_7874-1
img_7877-1
img_7871-1
So… I actually can’t decide which ones to post and I know everyone’s not going to head to the gallery to view all of them… therefore, even though the post will be rather LONG I’ve decided to post of all the photos anyway LOL.
img_7875-1
img_7873-1
img_7876-1
img_7879
Some of the socks from Chrissy’s Knee Highs are THICKER than the others, which is great for when you want them to be warm or when you need thinner ones so they don’t “bunch up” when you wear them with heels!
img_7867
img_7868
img_7866
img_7863
So far which look from the first four looks is more your favorite?  Which one is more YOUR STYLE?
img_7862
img_7865
img_7864
img_7859
img_7861
img_7858
img_7860
I told you there were a lot of photos from this shoot!! LOL it’s because it’s purple! JK… sort of. Not really kidding…
These last three photos are “wardrobe malfunctions/set boo boo’s” LOL aka fixing shirts, accidentally getting a rock in my hand, etc.
img_7882
img_7881
img_7880
Again, sorry there’s so many photos… I don’t think the last look has this many! You can once again view all of these in the gallery. ¬†Isn’t it great that you can wear knee highs or even thigh high socks in so many different styles and get away with it?! They’re literally for ALL occasions!
