Confessions of a Shopaholic: Holiday Gifts – A New Day Jewelry Set

Hey everyone. Get ready for a lot of posts all at once or at least all today and tomorrow because my drafts section is overflowing with lots of new stuff… First of them being some my Christmas presents (yes, I know its February that’s why I said get ready LOL)

Anyway, I was given these really pretty earrings and ring set. The first time I wore it for some reason I thought it had five rings not four and that I dropped one… Apparently that is not the case! Haha I do still have them all 😛 wahhooooo!

My ears aren’t used to earrings anymore though and I can only wear them for a small amount of time before my ears get really itchy 🙁 I just need to go get some nice earrings, that aren’t fake for ALL of my holes (there’s four in each ear)… I also really want to get my nose pierced… But that’s another story ha!

What do you think of them? Would you wear these? 🙂 xxoo

XO, Rose

Hygiene: Hallu Unicorn Purple Bath Bombs – Product Review

Hallu Unicorn Bath Bomb

Hey everyone! So a while ago, I bought a few of Hallu’s Bath Bomb’s from Wal – Mart including the “Unicorn” bomb and OMG, this was possibly my absolute favorite bath bomb I have ever tried!

The water started off with a deep swirling indigo color (dark blueish purple) and it swirled into the most beautiful color of purple on the planet! The scent was amazing and I came out smelling amazing! The color ended with a nice deep violet (see below!)

Please ignore the dirty bathroom… I didn’t even notice it until right now LOL. Anyways, obviously it’s my favorite for the beautiful colors that swirled in the water combined with the scent of the water and the super fun bubbles (that were added separately not created by the bath bomb) this was probably my favorite bubble bath of all time.

I love bath bombs so much! Especially when they turn out to be beautiful shades of the color purple. My last one was a nice fuchsia/magenta color. This one tops it though. The colors were amazing. Please definitely try this one out if you can! It made my day. Not to mention it smelled so amazingly good! Ahhh! I want to try all of them from this brand now.

You can find them at your local Wal Mart or Walgreen’s, CVS, or wherever you usually shop for hygiene items I’m sure. Just avoid the 99 cent only stores. Although they do sell some stuff that looks promising it usually lacks scent and is cheaply produced. This brand is $5 a bomb but that $5 is totally worth it. Trust me, I promise you won’t regret trying one of these… especially the Unicorn bomb! Up next for me: the Mermaid bomb! I’m serious. Go check them out! x

Beauty: Universal Bamboo Bath Tray

Hey guys! So a couple of weeks ago a friend of mine gave me a really awesome gift out of the blue. At first I didn’t honestly know what it was specifically for, but I knew it was a tray for your lap. I started using mine while watching TV and working on my iPad or MacBook. Then I got curious to google it because it comes with a soap holder (see below) that isn’t attached to it and I wanted to find out what it was for…

Vivo Home Bamboo Bathtub Caddy

That’s when I learned it’s true usage! It’s a bathtub caddy for relaxing in the tub! It even has a slot for holding your wine glass specifically.

I immediately fell in love with mine all over again! I started to look through photos of them to see what people used them for… and technically it doesn’t have to be used in the bathtub… or even the bathroom! It can be used anywhere you want to.

They also come in several different styles and looks. Not just color/type of wood (possibly but not sure about that) wise! This one one make it look like a fancy marble style bathroom. The kind in a super huge bathroom with a jet spa bathtub and a super soft fluffy bathrobe with matching slippers constantly hanging up on a hook just outside the tub… oh sorry I was day dreaming! LOL 😉

This one has a lot of ridges that I think may function better if it is used as a bathroom caddy rather than a portable desk like I currently do. Look wise though I think the ridges add style to it! Especially in the bathtub. It’s amazing how different cuts of wood can make something so unique.

They come in both light and dark brown!

Here’s another color that adds a completely different look/style. The darker wood adds a rustic old style look to a bathroom. I love how they tied the wash clothes up with a string. So simple but it really takes it up there to look extremely classy/rich. By rich I don’t literally mean a lot of money. I mean it makes the room look rich with the color choice. I don’t like the metal bars/poles on the second lighter option. The metal makes it look… out of place? Cheaper? Just… not as nice I suppose…

Definitely feeling the darker one for a bathroom though! It’s so simple and basic. It’s literally a piece of wood just planked across the tub… complete still with a wine glass holder… they all have one. Surprisingly no soap caddy though… isn’t this supposed to be for a tub? Haha advertise holding wine glasses, but don’t drop your soap! Lmao I tease.

See the ones with a bunch of options still look just as nice but you have the option to hold your wine and your towels! Hopefully it doesn’t fall into the bathtub though! Oops…

See here’s an example of how I tend to currently use mine… it stays next to my bed/tv because I rarely sit at my desk… I have no idea why but… hey I can still have it hold my wine glass! Just have to get some wine glasses first though 😛

I really feel the emphasis on the wine here… but idk maybe they should also have some photos with tea cups or coffee mugs… just for those of us that rarely or never drink wine… Although putting my OJ in a wine glass makes me feel fancy… putting grape juice in my mine glass makes me feel like a liar lol

This one has a wooden holder for your tablet. I wish mine had one like that. It makes the entire caddy look a lot nicer overall and it’s probably more sturdy than the simple wires with a cloth…

For those of you who are confused as to what I am talking about see above. The book or iPad holder is literally just a wire with some material sewn onto it. Most companies put their name here for advertising. Too bad that makes it look ugly and cheap. Yes mine had it too. No exception. Well except for these ones. I noticed the dark brown one doesn’t even have a holder at all, while two or three of them have wooden holders, but the majority of them all come with the simple wire and the company’s branded material right in your face…

Way to be subtle guys… I mean the names already printed on the wood towards the bottom… why does it have to be five inches above it. It’s like a repeat. I’m done ranting about the company names. Let’s focus on how amazing these things are and how great they function both inside and outside of the bathtub!

What do you think? Do you have one already? Would you get one? Would you prefer the wooden/bamboo caddy or a simple wire one that they sell for $5 at the discount stores? Definitely more budget friendly. These caddy’s range in price from $50-$70 ! I mean I LOVE mine… what about you? Is it a good investment? Would you get one?

Fashion: Editorials & Runway: Matt Damon Editorial – GQ Magazine

Hey everyone, so I recently read an article about Matt Damon in GQ Magazine, and it was an interesting article I must say! I never knew that Matt Damon and Ben Affleck were friends before they got famous…

Anyway though, the editorial for the article had me torn in two. Although after reading the article and waiting a couple of days before looking at the photos again gave me a larger appreciation for the styling of the shoot and I understand why it was styled the way it was, but… I just don’t know?

Some of the photos are actually amazing, I love the first one. Especially the outfit. My problem with the shoot is every single look being those super short 80’s shorts that practically have an inch to spare before everything falls out. Like I said, I get it, Matt Damon is for the generation above me. That’s what was “sexy” on a man. I know I am not the only one who listened to their parents complain about saggy shorts and butts hanging out, but… every look?

Ok this bathrobe one is cool, and I guess it isn’t shorts either so I reclaim my last statement. LOL.

Is he wearing house slippers with long tube socks on the beach? I mean I guess if it’s a private beach or a yacht club with millionaires in their slippers and tube socks everywhere then that’s ok. Otherwise… Shoobi much? :/

Ok these ones work. Playing sports, I get the look. But then it changes to a hoodie (below) and I think it looks too thick to be worn at the beach. Again unless it’s your yacht club… it’s just weird?

At least he looks cozy in the beach house.

The one above the last with the suit jacket obviously proves this is a yacht club, LOL. I did legitimately like the ice cream in the sand photos. Those were my favorite from the shoot.

What do you think of this shoot? Is it weird for the beach or does it work? I mean it depends on the age group, but… overall the styling is good and bad. Although I did like the stylist’s portfolio! You can view the article at www.GQmagazine.com and tell me what you think of Matt Damon’s sexy 80’s short shorts in the comments below! xoxo

Hello: Dear Google – What Are Other Planets Made Out Of?

What are planets made of?

Image: Taken from Tumblr, (source unknown)

Earth and the other three inner planets of our solar system (Mercury, Venus and Mars) are made of rock, containing common minerals like feldspars and metals like magnesium and aluminum. So is Pluto. The other planets are not solid. Jupiter, for instance, is made up mostly of trapped helium, hydrogen, and water. In our solar system, the four “gas giants” are Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, and Uranus.

Photo Diary – New Hair Style (Snapchat)

Hey guys… So I guess none of the blog posts I have been writing and posting have even been going live! I guess that’s my own fault for not checking them LOL. Anyhoo… About two months ago I had to cut my hair. I have never liked my hair short. My hair is naturally curly so when it’s short, I tend to have overly frizzy curls and I think I look a bit like Annie (you know… Red curly hair in an afro-style hair style).

My friend on the other hand thinks I look more like Merida from Brave… But that’s with my LONG hair! I won’t argue with that one. Although Ariel is my princess for life, my red hair isn’t as smooth and wavy as Ariel’s. Well… Maybe if I was underwater haha. So fine then, Merdia, we have cool hair… And a Scottish heritiage!

Haha. Anywho, the point being my hair is short but for the first time in my life… I actually really like how it came out! Especially since I cut itself and it’s only the second time in my life that I have done that. New photos will be coming soon but for the mean time… Here’s my Snapchat diary! My hair is about a half an inch longer now lol but obviously you can’t really tell.

It’s shorter on the left side (stage right – LMFAO) so I don’t part it down the middle… And yes it was supposed to be. What do you think of it? Way too long of a blog about nothing but cutting my hair? Yeah… I agree. Pfft. Let me know in the comments below!

What’s In My Bag: Rosie Says Hello Organization – (Notebook Planning)

Hey guys, so this is a special edition of “What’s In My Bag” because it’s also my notebook organization of planning Rosie Says Hello! 🙂

These notebooks are all for something different from the left to right:
Lilac w/ Flower Petals – Blog Organization/Planning, Purple – Notes/Drafts, Pink Floral – Business Lessons, Small Pink & Purple Flowers – Finances, Hello Beautiful – Personal Guide on How to Run a Business, Dark Floral – How to guide on running Rosie Says Hello, Small Dark Floral – Marketing Campaigns & Collaborations/Partnerships

First I wanted to make a different notebook for each section of planning because it seemed more organized and easier… After doing this for several years and having problems with theft, losing notebooks, having to start all over again… I’ve gotten to the point where in 2021, I’m going to use a different approach/planning method…

I’m only going to have 1 notebook, 2 MAX. Probably with either 3 or 5 subjects and only 1 daily planner… everything is going to be all together. Then I will only need to carry 1-2 notebooks and 1 planner.

Although this method, worked for me…

DIY Crafts: Personalized Artistic Pencil Bags

Hey guys! So I got this pencil bag about a month or so ago and it was all pink at first… So of course I had to go in and make it purple instead!

I decided to use mixed medias including a gold hinted metallic purple acrylic paint, a lavendar oil based marker (I LOVE THESE MARKERS SO MUCH!), some purple nail polish, silver nail polish, purple felt tip pens, and regular crayola markers too.

I wanted to cover up some writing on the back of it and I emphasized the “LOVE” by adding cursive on top multiple times.

Overall, I love the end result of the bag. I think it could pass for an actual bag that you would find in the store like this.

I’m not sure what do you guys think of it? Would you buy it from a store designed like this? Or is it more of an artsy “you can totally tell it’s scribbled on” by a person… haha.

Moving to WordPress.org

Hey everyone! So in about two weeks my hosting at WordPress.com is going to expire and it’s quite a bit of money to renew for hosting. I’ve decided I won’t be renewing it and I’ll finally be moving RosieSaysHello.com over to WordPress.org on my other hosting account that hosts RosePendleton.com and RogueDaisies.com. I’m doing this because it allows me much more space (I was running out at WordPress.com) I can also do advertising on my website now since its self hosted and with the change I’m going to be fixing up the site to make it more of a pop culture, fashion website finally rather than a personal fashion blog.

I hope you guys stick with me and when I have the new information for you guys to subscribe I will definitely post it to keep in touch! 

Thanks for your continued support over the past few years! I will hopefully get WordPress to redirect rosiesayshello.wordpress.com to my new website which will still be at RosieSaysHello.com! If you are subscribed thru WordPress.com you will need to resubscribe when the time comes. Wish me luck with my big move! xo

Photo Diary: The Style of My Sister’s Wedding

Hey crazies, these photos are from a while ago back when my sister got married to her husband.  They are adorable & i LOVE her styling for it.  She wore red Converse All-Stars down the aisle the entire time and never even had a pair of heels.  Not to mention her top hat! So this is my photo diary from backstage at the wedding and the fitting of the dress the week or so before the wedding.

Also I have some great news! I will be getting a new DSLR camera at the beginning of next month! It’s on it’s way which is super exciting to me! I can start to document my daily outfits and basically everything else again!

I do believe she made the top hat herself using a hat from the dollar store! Shes always been super crafty and stylish with no effort. What do you think of her dress / outfit? x
