Outfit Under $70!

24 Apr

Hey guys, I’m here to share a quick outfit that I recently purchased at Target for under $70!!!!  This gorgeous $35 flowy polka dot dress is by my favorite Target line ‘Who What wear’. The wrap up block heels are by Mossimo and were $32. The block heels are also an exact dupe for a Steve Madden pair that retail for $110! If you’re on a budget or just love a good deal, check out the Who what wear collection at Target. They have so many cute pieces that won’t break the bank. Happy shopping:)

Tinted Sunscreen For Sensitive Skin.

23 Apr

For those of you that have been following my blog for a while, you know that I’m an SPF addict! I wear hats and SPF daily to avoid any sun exposure to my face. I am very sensitive when it comes to sunscreens and break out very easily when I try new brands. My friend Jacki talked me into trying Elta MD and I am obsessed!!! First of all, it’s tinted so I love that(they have non tinted as well) and secondly, it’s made for skin types prone to acne, rosacea and hyperpigmentation. I have acne prone skin and hyperpigmentation (dark patches) so I was all for it! Hyperpigmentation can be kept under control when the sun is avoided. This particular sunscreen is made with Zinc oxide which sits on top of the skin, so the sun can’t penetrate at all and since I’ve been using this SPF my dark patches have lightened. With summer approaching I thought I’d share this amazing Sunscreen with you all.  elta

Shop Elta MD HERE

It is more expensive than traditional non zinc sunscreen, but it actually works! I wear it alone and under my makeup. I also prefer a high SPF so I wear 46, but they have lower SPFs as well.

Spring Nail Color!

24 Mar

Spring has sprung and I’m sharing my favorite bright and cheery nail color with you guys. The color is Lounge lover by Essie and is a pretty peachy/coral hue.essie1 It’s not overly bright in a tacky way, it’s actually very feminine and pretty. It also looks amazing on all skin tones.  Shop Essie polish HERE.

Note: Tart deco and Shop til I drop are very similar to Lounge Lover

Happy spring:)

Pink Suede Pumps: Just Do it!

27 Jan

Let’s be honest, some of us are “pink girls” and some of us aren’t. Whether or not pink is your thing, you need pink suede pumps!  Let me tell you why. First of all, you can wear  pink suede pumps with pretty much anything and they look especially amazing with pants. If you think pink is too girly, you can pair pink pumps with ripped jeans or an all black ensemble to off set the girly vibe and go for more of an edgy look. If you can’t find a shoe to match your outfit, throw on pink….believe it or not, it matches everything. I’m starting to think that pink is a neutral, LOL! Lastly, pink can be LOUD, but the classic silhouette of a pointed toe and the rich suede texture bring the perfect balance to the heel. The bottom line is pink heels look great on everyone, and you need some!

Check out these images below of some looks with pink heels and you’ll get to see for yourself that pink heels are a must. I also will link pink heels for every budget for you to shop as well.(scroll down to shop)

My Favorite Everyday Nail Color!

12 Jul

I’ve found the perfect year round everyday nail color. It’s a pinkish clear hue by Essie called Sugar Daddy. I LOVE this color. It’s almost clear but very light pink at the same time. It basically goes with everything and makes your nails look super healthy. I’m on my 2nd bottle and I never go through nail polish that fast. I was explaining it to a friend as the perfect color for everyone, from the color enthusiasts to the non polish wearing. It compliments all skin tones as well. I recommend you pick a bottle up to add to your collection!
