Review of Makeup by One Direction + Giveaway!

25 Nov

Makeup by One Direction is sponsoring this review by providing me with free samples of their makeup! For those of you that love bold and colorful makeup then these makeup kits will impress you! The main colors of the makeup are blue, orange, pink, and yellow which express the band’s fun and happy music. The mascara is really cool because it comes in the three colors and can also be used as a hair highlighter! Colored mascara brings out the color in eyes just like eye shadow therefore it can make a subtle statement if you apply it to the tips of your lashes or to your entire lashes. Besides mascara there is also a lip gloss kit. Liguilights Glow Gloss is awesome because it is enriched with natural oils and vitamin E. Furthermore, if you go to a party at night for example, your lips will glow if you have the gloss on! My favorite is the nail polish kit which comes in really cute colors for girls such as pink and blue and all of the polishes include glitter. Makeup by One Direction just hit Macy’s, Dillards, Boscov’s, Stage Stores, Beauty Brands, and Lord & Taylor so you can look for all of these fabulous makeup kits there!

Blair Waldorf’s Preppy Fashion

21 Nov

Some people associate the term preppy with snobby and rich people but from the fashion perspective preppy clothing is one of my favorite ways to dress. Preppy style consists of timeless and classic pieces with clean and structured lines. Preppy outfits are conservative and do not show too much skin. It is very important that the clothing fits well and is not too tight. Preppy dressing incorporates lots of layering such as an oxford shirt with a cardigan over it. Don’t forget to incorporate color into your outfits as well because color is the key to spicing up a simple outfit. An unforgettable character and fashion icon in the popular show Gossip Girl, is the very stylish Blair Waldorf. Blair is known for being a fashionista who often channels Audrey Hepburn in her style. Blair loves dressing very girly and incorporating details such as ruffles, belts, lace, and prints into her preppy outfits.

The Revolutionary Hair Curler

20 Nov

Hello lovelies!

I have recently been sent an amazing rotating clipless curler called KISS InstaWave. This product is revolutionary!  All you do is put it next to your hair, press a button, and it begins to wrap your hair around the iron by itself. Sounds crazy right? This curler makes everything so much easier and faster!  It is easy for anyone to use, from any angle, with any hand. It is also a fully automatic tangle-free curler because the wide set teeth won’t allow your hair to tangle. This curler is actually all that it claims to be. When I was first applying to review this tool I was skeptical, but when I actually used the tool I realized that it is awesome. I am being one hundred percent honest when I say that if you are going to invest money in any curling iron, you should get this one.


First things first. The curler resembles your regular curler except this curler has teeth or small twisting tools which are the magic behind all of InstaWave’s greatness. Since this is not your typical curler, KISS InstaWave is kind enough to provide you with a very thorough set of instructions. And InstaWave features a curl dial with left/right curl directions. Here are step by step instructions on how to use the curler:

1. There are two heat settings with a low/high switch with maximum temperature of 420. I set mine to high.

2. Hold InstaWave vertically next to your hair.

3. Simply place a section of your hair on the InstaWave curling rod. Then touch the Curl Dial either left or right, and the InstaWave instantly and automatically catches and curls the hair. Hold for 5-10 seconds, longer for tighter curls and less for beachy waves. Switch between curling right and curling left to create the most natural looking curls.

4. Pull the InstaWave down vertically, and it will easily let your hair out. Repeat this with the rest of your head, and just in case you forgot to turn InstaWave off, it shuts off by itself in 90 minutes! And there you have it folks, perfect curls!

You can purchase your own InstaWave here:

Also for those of you that noticed: I got a haircut! My hair used to be almost down to my belly button before!

I hope you liked my review and found it helpful!

Dress Up Your Neck With A Statement Necklace

14 Nov

A statement necklace is equivalent to a scarf because like a scarf, it is the centerpiece of an outfit. Statement necklaces do not all look the same; they can be silver, gold, chunky, oversized, embellished, colorful, etc. etc.  My statement necklace collection is small but a necklace that I wear all the time is one I purchased from H&M. The necklace is light pink and designed to look like petals. I love this pretty pastel color because it is not too crazy as the colors of some statement necklaces tend to be. Pastel colored necklaces are wonderful because they give just enough pop of color to make an outfit stand out. My necklace also instantly becomes the center of attention if I wear it with darker or neutral colors. Statement necklaces breathe life and excitement into bland and simple outfits. Therefore my favorite way to wear my statement necklace is with an otherwise boring outfit such as jeans and a sweater. Although I love necklaces of all sorts, try to look for a necklace that would best suit you. If you have a round face, opt for a necklace that is longer. For a long face go with a short and round necklace. Adding an unexpected bold necklace will take your outfit from casual to trendy and fabulous.
