How To Style: Chrissy’s Knee High Socks – Bermuda, Bahama (Part Two)

Reading time: 3 Minutes

So what did you guys think of look one number of Chrissy’s Knee High Socks? Are you excited for look number two? I originally had an entirely different look planned for this! I wanted to go with a “Oops I Did it Again” – Britney Spears type of thing, but then I decided that wasn’t really my style and flipped the whole thing upside down!

The socks were pink and gray Argyle style and they remind me of the Britney Spears video don’t they?! Or preppy girl 101 hah! I took a different route.  Something that was wild and bright.

I went with one of my favorite shirts – it’s a silky all over print retro styled fish button up blouse.  It’s very hard to pair with anything due to the wildness of the print, both color wise and pattern, so I always go with something really out there! The shirt really does give off a retro vibe, so I decided to add on some round pink glasses, Bermuda shorts and a pink beanie.

The socks are even thicker than the ones with prints on them.  Since the pattern is so complex, they have pretty much a double layer for the gray and then one for the pinks.  It came in super handy because lately it’s been very cold and it even rained yesterday!

The look was topped off with a gold necklace that had pearls and pink hearts and a gold “Bonjour” belt from ShopLuvB.com’s “Bonjour Dress”.  I went with a lilac lipstick color which I have since fallen in love with!

Since the look had a hippy – 70’s vibe, I decided to kick off my shoes in the middle of the shoot and curl my toes, so to speak.

What do you think of look number two? Are you into all these amazing designs and styles of Chrissy’s Knee High Socks so far? Get ready for the next look! It’s just as wild as the first two! x

Product Review: Dead Sea Minerals Anti-Stress Facial Mask

IMG_5833

This is one of my all time FAVORITE masks.  I haven’t been able to find the large version in the store (although I’m sure they have it) it really cleans out your pores and makes your skin feel soft. The main reason I fell in love with it is because it smells like you’re at the beach. It’s wonderful! Not to mention it’s bright blue! HAHA

This is a horrible product review, but really out of all of Freeman’s Feeling Beautiful Facial Masks, this is my all time favourite and those are the only facial masks I use (I rotate depending on what my skin needs).  Right now I’m trying their “Chamomile Sleeping Mask” instead of using my night cream to see how that works so I will let you know! So far I really like it, but I’m not too sure if I like it better than my night cream because that makes my skin feel like a baby’s bottom the next day!

I bought a BUNCH of these packets for different facial masks from them including some new ones that I haven’t tried on my shopping haul last weekend (I haven’t posted all the skincare stuff I got yet!) so there will be some reviews up featuring some new products of theirs! I love Freeman’s Feeling Beautiful Facial Masks.  They have one for all types of skins and literally use EVERYTHING you can think of to make sure you find one you love specifically for you. x

Beauty Basics: Celebrity Perfumes

Reading time: 2 Minutes

I’m winding down for the night! Only two more posts to go after this one! So, I rarely wear perfumes only because they are SO EXPENSIVE! And if you are really going to pay $50-$100+ for a bottle it better smell pretty fantastic! I usually use body spray… or more preferably just deodorant and I’m out the door with my normal skin scent.  However, there are a few perfumes that I DO actually think smell good and I have forked over the money for them especially this first one at least three times now!

tumblr_m1x4keMU6O1r0ay4y
Number one: With Love… by Hilary Duff

I have always been a fan of Hilary Duff and I think she released another scent of perfume after this one but I didn’t really like it as much but that could of been a dream… let me go look. Yeah, she did it’s called Wrapped With Love also it’s gone WAY down in price since it first came out… either way I LOVE the scent of With Love and I’ve bought three bottles of these since it came out.  The scent is great, sweet and perfect for nights that need perfume (because you don’t need it every night really now…)

tumblr_m1x4utXqGc1r0ay4y
Number two: Fantasy by Britney Spears

I am not even a Britney fan… sorry don’t hate me. I don’t dislike her, I’m just not a fan… I do however LOVE the smell of Fantasy which happened one day as I was walking through Macy’s and someone stopped me to smell it.  I was mildly surprised at how much I really did love the smell of it!

tumblr_m1x4r8sedT1r0ay4y

Number three: The last one I only tried because Emma Watson endorsed the product and I love her. The one thing I didn’t know was that I was actually going to fall in love with the perfume too! It has a scent of raspberries, vanilla & rose.  I’m not a huge fan of the way vanilla smells but the other two really brought this one together… plus the packaging is purple and anything that’s purple is really appealing to me.  Although this one I believe is the most expensive out of the three, it’s also probably the one most worth it! You should definitely try it out if you can! What’s your favorite perfume scent? (NOT body spray, perfume.. .you know the expensive kind that you only use out of magazines by rubbing the paper on your skin and hoping if you keep the paper sealed away the smell will last longer but it doesn’t… that kind of perfume), x

Product Review: Kimble Bounce Back Curling Revitalizer

Reading time: 4 Minutes

Hey guys! So a few years ago my mom got me this curling revitalizer as a Christmas gift and ever since I haven’t found one that tops it (my next review of a curling revitalizer will be pretty much the opposite of this one).  This one really lives up to it’s name of “Bounce Back” and makes your curls fresh and really bouncy!

eb4a6fca93d211e18cf91231380fd29b_7

It’s a sticky gel.  Almost like hair gel but you apply it after getting out the shower and it works it magic while your hair air drys! That’s it! You just brush it in and it does all the work.

45a980ea511711e1b9f1123138140926_7

This is my curls before I jumped into the shower.  I have naturally curly hair, so this is pretty much what it looks like everyday. Notice how it’s flat at the top by my roots and doesn’t really start to get curly until it passes my ears.  Then the curls are pretty much all over the place and I don’t mean in a good way!

e54b465c8a7811e19dc71231380fe523_7

This is AFTER my hair dried and using the Kimble Bounce Back Curling Revitalizer! The curls start at the roots, they are more spiral shaped, tighter and closer together and go all the way around my head.  I LOVE this product so incredibly much. The way my curls just literally bounce with it is amazing.  I mean I have naturally curly hair so no matter what I do the curls will always be there they don’t “go flat” but they can look disgusting and using this really made them look amazing. I also got two other Kimble products that I didn’t like quite as much.  One was a mint shampoo and I’m not a fan of mint.  When I opened it in the shower, it burned my eyes with the strong small alone… so I’m not saying that I love this product for any reason other than I truly TRULY LOVE IT and have not found anything better to this day.

This product is hard to find in stores.  Usually you can find it at Sally’s or possibly Target if you’re lucky.  But if you don’t feel like going on a hunting trip, you can always order it online.  Becareful of which product you are getting.  They appear to have MANY different ones under the exact same brand and same name but are different types of liquid texture. They also have changed the look of the bottle since I got mine (pictured above) so there are a few different looks that you might find when looking for it.  Mine (above), the newer-older version (below)…

kimble-beauty-bounce-back-curl-revitalizer-560x560_2

OR these newer bottles of it rather than a squeeze bottle it’s in a pump.  And these below are the ones I was talking about being careful when selecting the RIGHT product.

SBS-055100

This one seems right because it’s the Bounce Back Curl in “Curl Cream” form, but it’s NOT the one I tried.SBS-055101

This is the RIGHT one.  It’s the Curling Revitalizer not Curl Cream. (I have not tried the curl cream, but would love to if I ever get my hands on some!)

SBS-055102

This last one is a Curl Enhancer and also says Bounce Back Curl on it.  So just remember that you’re looking for the Revitalizer, not cream, not enhancer but the bottles seem to look similar.  You can buy it in the Sally’s Beauty Supply store in person or online.  I’ve also seen it at Target & JcPenney once.  If you are interested in trying the other two they are listed in the online store above in the side where it lists similar products.  The revitalizer seems to be the most expensive of the three, listed at $15.99 while the others are $13.99 and $12.99 respectfully. Have you guys ever tried this out? Do you want to? Let me know your trials below! x

Yum, Yum, Yum: Chobani Simply 100 Crunch

Reading time: 3 Minutes

As most of you know, I’m working on eating a more balanced diet, and have been setting up meals that have all of the food groups.  I’ve been sitting around and binge eating sweets it’s causing a lot of health issues for myself including my asthma!  So I’ve been working on eating more nutritious meals and balancing my diet to include all food groups each time I eat as well as being more active! My pals over at Chobani Yogurt took an interest in my healthy way of eating a nutritional balanced diet, and wanted to encourage me AND my followers to do the same!

Chobani is releasing some new Simply 100 CRUNCH flavors for the new year, that are the same great tasting yogurts, but each of them only contains 100 calories, and are packed with a CRUNCH! The new flavors include Blueberry Cookie Crumble, Strawberry Chocolate Truffle, and Mango Cone Crisp.

crunch-product-stc

I have decided in addition to eating healthier at each meal, that I’m going to start doing my favorite thing again – running while listening to music.  Not everyone loves to be active, so Chobani has offered a variety of fun ways that you can loose 100 calories which makes eating their new yogurt flavors or any of the flavors in their Simply 100 lineup virtually ZERO calories!

chobani_100cal_12version (1)

Aren’t these just the cutest activities? Everyone (well… mostly everyone) loves yoga! Your dog DOES need that walk you’ve been putting off, ice skating isn’t going to last forever! It’s going to be spring soon so grab those skates!  I love how their poster is purple! Just want to throw that out there!

So stay healthy this year by grabbing a snack – any of Chobani’s Simply 100 or Simply 100 Crunch flavors (I recommend the Strawberry Chocolate Truffle (mmm, so good!) pick your favorite activity and enjoy this ZERO calorie snack. You can now (for a limited time only) enjoy $1 off your favorite yogurt by heading to their The Light’s That’s Right website and printing out a coupon (this is a DIFFERENT website than their regular site).  Tell me which activity you choose, which yogurt flavor out of the Simply 100 Crunch flavors turns out to be your favorite, and why you choose them to be healthy!

How To Style: Kushy Foot Socks & Flats

Reading time: 1 Minute

Hey guys! Sorry for my lack of blogging.  I haven’t been feeling too well and even had to go to urgent care last night! But I do have some amazing new photos to share with you 🙂 First things first, I must pronounce my love for “KushyFoot” products!  First things first, these socks are really comfortable and thick giving you top quality socks!  The bottom of the socks have GRIPS or “ripples” on them which is one of my all time favorite features for these products!

img_3795

The thickness of the socks really helps during the winter months, because they really do keep you warm!

_MG_9991

_MG_9993

I have the socks in all sizes including tights! One thing I’m also in love with is their “Flats To Go” because they are really compact and fold up inside their little carrying case which comes with them!
img_3796

I love to slip these on when I’m in a hurry or just to run outside real fast and grab the mail or when I have to wear heels to an event and want to grab some flats to wear during downtime! These are absolutely perfect & my go – to flats because of their compatibility.  They also come in multiple styles (mine are the Alligator print).

_MG_0056

_MG_0103

Another reason to love these socks is the high elasticity in them so they stay up really well vs constantly falling down and needing to be pulled up! I definitely recommend KushyFoot products to everyone! And the great thing is, is that you can get them online or in any drug store! Have you guys ever tried KushyFoot products? They really do live up to their name and if you haven’t you should definitely try them out! xo

Beauty Basics: Chosungah 22 Foundation + Lipsticks “Mini” Tutorial

Reading time: 2 Minutes

So here is a MINI makeup tutorial using Chosungah 22 foundation (01 Porcelain) and their flavored lipstick products! I look super tired because it was really early in the morning, which is why this is a “mini” tutorial and I use only a few images mainly to showcase the foundation + flavored lipsticks in action.  A FULL tutorial using their foundation, but will all the steps, will be up very soon.


These are the products I used for this look. They are Chosungah 22 01 Porcelain for both foundations liquid and round compact.  I used my usual 02 Vanilla Revlon concealer. Loreal Paris “Neon Skirt” but I only used the purple & white for this look because I was working and didn’t want to go over the top wild! I used my LA Splash Proof Sealer/Base which is one of my favorite things because it helps keep your eye shadow on all day for those ones that tend to come off 10 minutes after you put them on… L’Oreal Double Extend Mascara, Victoria Jackson bronzer, which is one of my favorites but I accidentally dropped half of it down the drain in Chicago a few years ago and it’s pretty expensive so I rarely use it.  I also used their “Golden Pea Tea” flavored lipstick which is a tint of light pink & for the holidays my Victoria Secrets Beauty Rush Purple Glitter Gloss.

img_2594This is my face before adding anything at all. No makeup and slightly pimply.


This photo to cut short is right after I added the foundation & concealer but had no other makeup on.

This is after adding just the purple & white eye shadow (applying my base first), bronzer, mascara & eyeliner with their “Golden Peach Tea” pink tinted lipstick (I told you it’s more of a chap stick than a “pink” lipstick”).


And this is the final look after adding my VS Beauty Rush Purple Glitter Gloss.  There were a few other photos, but I want to do a proper tutorial with better photos. You can definitely see the difference in my face with no makeup and adding the Chosungah foundation though! At the end I really could of taken a wet tissue across my eyebrows to remove the foundation.  It makes my eyebrows darker and cleans the makeup out of them, but I was at my desk so I didn’t.

Their foundation has become my everyday foundation now so there will be a lot of tutorials & photo shoots soon using their brand. Wait and see! x

Beauty Basics: Chosungah 22 Foundation + Flavored Lipstick(s)

Reading time: 1 Minute

Hey guys! It’s been a really hectic week for me! I was in a car accident and currently don’t have transportation, my sister is going to give birth to my niece any second and I have a new favorite lipstick from a company named Chosungah 22!

First of all, I got some pretty amazing goodies in the mail from Chosungah 22 which is a new makeup company from Korea created by the artist named Chosungah! I would like to mention that the packaging is absolutely amazing and colorful!

img_2579
They sent me two different foundations a liquid and a compact. The colors I got was Porcelain which they guessed on and ironically matches my skin really well!

The others I thought were shades of lipstick but are actually flavored lipsticks that have a slight tint and are more of a chapstick! I got Chai Tea (Clear Tan), Golden Peach Tea (Pink) & Guava Tint Jello (Red-Orange).

The cases are black matte with the tint color in on the number.  Overall I think the packaging is insanely beautiful and packaging definitely matters!

 My favorite has to be the Chai Tea because I drink Chai almost everyday! I apply it almost constantly, because I love it so much! The only downside is the flavor of the lipsticks aren’t too strong, which is why I apply it so much.

 I absolutely love everything they sent to me! The foundations are now my main ones. I love the sponge at the top. You push a button to make the liquid come out and makes it really easy to blend!

Tomorrow I will post a makeup tutorial using my new foundations, as well as show all three tints of lipsticks! You should definitely check out their website & like them on Facebook! I can’t wait to see what else they have to offer! Stay tuned for my tutorial post! xo
