Get That Look For Less

One of my favorite shows is Pretty Little Liars. I know, it's probably meant for more of the teeny-boppers, but I can't help it! I love it! I look forward to Tuesdays for ABC Family's shows Pretty Little Liars and Jane By Design. I also love The Lying Game and I am patiently waiting for it to come back on. I think both shows have great fashion and I love seeing what the characters wear every week. I also like to see if I can find their outfits for a much cheaper price at one store because sometimes you don't have the time to go all over town or if you are buying online, it's much easier to go to one site and buy. You also don't have to worry about more than one shipping fee.

So I went online to Forever 21's website for Hanna Marin's outfit on this past tuesday's episode.

Here was my inspiration:

via Google

And here is what I came up with:

3/4 Sleeve Single Breasted Blazer

Price- $32.80


Longline Rib Tank
like it? Click Here

Price- $4.80

(right now there's a sale for this tank for 2 for $8- which would make it $4) 

Cuffed Trouser Shorts
like it? Click Here

Price- $17.80

Oversized Rope Chain Necklace
like it? Click Here

Price- $6.80

That brings the total of this outfit to:
$62.20 (before tax)

OR you can get the actual jacket worn by Hanna

at Zara (found HERE) for $129.00

Even though the Zara blazer is beyond adorable, I think I would rather get the entire outfit for half the price.

Summer Beauty

During the summer I don't like wearing a ton of makeup. It is just too hot to have all of that product on! Here is break down of the items that I wear usually everyday in the Summer. For the night looks, I changed it up, but during the day I like to go for a very natural look.

1.  CoverGirl Natureluxe Foundation- I love this foundation because it is very lightweight. It does have SPF10 in it which is AWESOME! It also has cucumber extract and jojoba in it.

2. Urban Decay's Naked 2 Palette- I absolutely LOVE this palette. I can use it during the day for the "natural" look that I like or go for a smokey look at night. I think every girl should own either the original Naked Palette or Naked 2.

3. Moroccan Oil Hair Treatment- I don't like to use a lot of product in my hair during the summer or use a lot of heating tools. I like to take a shower and then put the Moroccan Oil in my hair and just let my hair air dry. This treatment has done wonders to my hair. It makes my hair so shiny, soft, and it has strengthened my hair so much!

4. MAC blush in Desert Rose-  You can make this color is light and sheer on your cheeks for a natural "flush" look or you can really build up the color for a bolder look.

5. Tarte's Lights, Camera, Lashes- This mascara is my favorite! It gives my lashes the length, volume, and curl that I love. Tarte is one of my favorite brands as well because they are cruelty free and paraben free.

6. Revlon Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake- I absolutely love wearing lip butters! Strawberry Shortcake is such a gorgeous color!!

What are your Summer Beauty Essentials?

Style Icon- Rachel Bilson

From her days on the TV show "The O.C." to her new show on The CW "Hart of Dixie" Rachel Bilson has always been a style icon. I am a huge fan of hers not only by her style, but also her acting. I just think she is cute as a button. Every time I see her, she is always dressed just so adorable. She is always in style with the latest trends whether it's with her clothing choices or her ombre hair that she is so rockin' right now! I definitely get  some insipiration from her!


How adorable does she look while walking her puppy?! I look like a hot mess when I'm walking my pups.

I want need those shoes! They just look like so much fun!!

So who is one of your Celebrity Style Icons?

Follow Friday + Furry Friends

I am a little late on this week's Follow Friday because my husband and I were house sitting and dog sitting 4 of the cutest puppies. The house did not have any Internet (GASP!!), but we are back home now and I have never been happier to have the Internet again! We had so much fun with these little guys and girls (2 boys and 2 girls) and the house had a nice inground swimming pool, so we definitely enjoyed ourselves all weekend!

Here are those sweet little angels...

So even though I am late, here is my "Follow Friday" Blog, Beauty Blogs and More. She does really great at product reviews and always has some awesome wishlists! Her blog is super cute!
Go check her out!!

NOTD: Sally Hensen's Coral Reef

Today I am wearing the gorgeous Sally Hensen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear in the color Coral Reef. If you read my Mini Haul (Found HERE) that I did over the weekend then you would know that I have literally searched EVERYWHERE for this nail polish. I finally found it at my Target (which by the way I have looked there at least 100 times, so I got lucky this weekend when it was there!!)

It is such a beautiful color! I used a clear base coat, 2 coats of Coral Reef, and a clear top coat.

What are you wearing today?

Mini Haul

I had such a wonderful weekend hanging out with family and celebrating Father's Day with my dad and father-in-law. We were so busy the entire weekend, but I did manage to squeeze in some time to do a little shopping.

My first stop was my favorite place EVER, Marshalls! I am definitely obsessed with Marshalls and TJ Maxx.

High-Low Dress

Brand: Cynthia Rowley

I am a southern girl, so of course when I find a cute button down collared shirt..I HAVE to get it!

Brand: Passport

This shirt is soo comfortable!

Brand: Aerie by Aeropostale


I absolutely love this shirt! It is so comfortable. I actually wore this Sunday and wore it with some white skinny looked so adorable! You may not be able to tell from the picture, but it is zebra print, racerback, and see through...I just wore a white racerback tank underneath it.

Brand: Bozzolo

This AMAZING candle smells so good! It seriously has been lit since I brought it home.

Brookside Candle in Hawaiian Breeze
Nectarine, Mango, and Honeydew

I also got 2 white tank tops. I didn't take a picture because there really isn't anything special about them. I am one of those crazies that everytime I go to a store I usually end up getting either a white tank top or a black one. You can never have enough of them!

Then I went to Target...

I finally got Sally Henson's Xtreme Wear in Coral Reef. I have searched every store for miles for this nail polish. Everytime I go somewhere they either don't have it at all or they are sold out! I have seen so many blog about this and I am in love with the color. It is GORGEOUS!

I got just this bathing suit top in coral because I have some really cute bottoms that would match it perfectly!

Brand: Target's Brand Mossimo

My last stop was Kohls....

Okay, you are probably wondering why I got 2 pairs of white jeans...well, I have been wanting some for the summer ,so I couldn't resist getting 2. In my defense, they are totally different. One pair is skinny and the other one has flare to it at the bottom.

Brand (left): SO
(Right): Candies

Review: Covergirl's Lash Blast Volume Special Edition

I recently picked up Covergirl's Special Edition Lash Blast Volume mascara in black. It is in a white tube for the Olympics. I really enjoy the Special Edition packaging!  I think this mascara did exactly what it says it is going to do. My eyelashes had a lot of volume and length and it was completely smudge proof.  I put it on first thing in the morning which was around 6AM and it still looked fresh when I took it off around 10PM. I even got a few compliments at work saying that my eyelashes looked very long and beautiful! I really like this mascara and will definitely continue using!!

Khroma Beauty Collection Coming Soon

Have you heard the latest buzz about Khloe, Kim, and Kourtney Kardashian's new beauty collection, Khroma Beauty? They partnered with Boldface Licensing and Branding to create an assortment of beauty products. They will be exclusive to Ulta starting in December 2012 with a holiday collection. The sisters are going to create makeup tutorials that will be displayed on their Twitter pages. 

So are you excited about this launch or are you over the Kardashian brand?

June 2012 Birchbox

This month's Birchbox theme is Jet-Set. This was the very first month that I didn't take a peak to see what I got in my box before it arrived looking all beautiful and pink in my mailbox. Well, I did watch their Youtube sneak peak video, but I don't really think that counts because I technically didn't know what all was going to be in my box. I just knew after watching the video I was going to end up getting the perfume sample (there is nothing wrong with that, but I always get the one that doesn't smell as nice as the other perfume samples they might have in there as well). I was very excited when I did see what all I got this month.

I love opening the box to see all the goodies waiting for me to discover!

Front & Back of card explaining the theme and a list of my awesome goodies inside

The first item is the Winks faux lashes with eyelash glue. I think it's awesome they included the glue!! They are definitely a lot bolder than the faux eyelashes that I usually buy, but I am excited to try them out.

I am very excited to try out Hair Rules' Volumizing Shampoo!! I do have a problem with my hair falling flat within a few hours after washing & styling my hair. And the best part of the shampoo....

No Sulfates, Parebens, & Animal Testing...OH YEAH!!!

I have really been wanting to try out some products from LA Fresh. I have heard wonderful things about the company, so when I saw their Oil-Free Face Cleanser wipes in the box I had to jump up and down for joy! Okay, don't act like I'm the only one who does the happy dance over trying out new products?!? I love the fact that they at least included 2 instead of only 1. I would have preferred a pack of at least 10, but hey we can't always get what we want. ;)

 The Balm's Stainiac lip and cheek stain in the shade "Beauty Queen" is something I am on the fence about. I am all about some lip stain, but I am unsure about using it on my cheeks as well.

It is a very pretty color!

The last item in the box was actually the Lifestyle extra, a Tili Bag. It is basically a decorated zip & seal bag (Ziploc baggy). I think it is absolutely adorable!! It definitely makes bringing your own snacks on an airplane, road trip, or even to work a lot more stylish! The website says you don't just have to use it for snacks- you can also put change, vitamins, makeup, or basically whatever you want. I really love the print I adorable is it?!!  

So if you are subscribed to Birchbox- what all did you get in your box this month?

Blog Hoppin'

I found some really awesome blogs last week when I did the blog hop through BlogLoveTherapy, so I definitely wanted to join the hop again this week. If you want to learn more about it click HERE.

Time to do some hoppin' :)

Juelp's June Mystery Box

Every couple of month's Julep has mystery boxes that you can get for $19.99. You can get a box worth $60 up to $200. I always tell myself I don't need to buy them, but it never fails..I always give in and buy. I haven't been lucky enough to get the $200 box YET and I think that's why the mystery boxes are so appealing to me. I feel like if I don't buy one, that could have been my chance to get the big box.

So if you want to get June's Mystery Box- act fast..they stop doing them on June 15th. Make sure you use the promo code "JUNEMYSTERY" so you only have to pay $19.99.

Have you already bought your Mystery Box? Does the thought of possibly getting the box worth $200 make you buy the Mystery Boxes every time?

Review: Fake Bake Flawless Self Tan Liquid & Professional Mitt

I love having a pretty glow to my skin, but I definitely do not want skin cancer. I always wear SPF every time I go outside and I DO NOT lay in a tanning bed! That is the worst thing you can do to yourself. If you do, then STOP RIGHT NOW! So anyways, I better get back on topic before I go on a rant about tanning beds and start listing reasons why they are bad.. haha....So yes I am always on the hunt for a great self tanner. I have wasted a ton of money on some terrible ones and got my money's worth out of some really great ones.

I recently went to one of my favorite places, Ulta, to browse the self tanner aisle. Gosh, I love that place! I ended up getting Fake Bake's Flawless Self-Tan Liquid & Professional Mitt. I have heard so many great things about this product.

You get a the 6 Fl. Oz. tanning liquid, 2 gloves, a mitt, and 2 different caps.

I have to say it is the best self-tanner I have ever tried. It is really easy to use. ..since I used the spray cap..I just sprayed it on my body and used the mitt to rub it in. You have to wear the gloves underneath the mitt because it soaks in and will get on your hands if you don't. For my hands and feet, I just spray on the mitt and then rubbed it on my hands and feet. It doesn't take long at all to dry. Make sure you put an old towel on the floor when you are spraying or else it will get all over your floor or at least it did for me.. Maybe I was so excited and got spray happy? oopsie! It has a very tropical smell to it which smells so good. When the tan dried I could smell the typical "self tanner smell," but it was not as bad as most self tanners. The tan is very natural looking. I got several compliments today at work! I would highly recommend this self tanner.

The 2 different lids you get. I prefer the spray is much easier to use!

Paraben Free!



You can get this where I did at Ulta or you get it much cheaper at Amazon.

So do you use self-tanner? what are your favorite ones?
