Diamond Candles

Diamonds are a girls best friend right? Then it’s no surprise that being a girl, I love Diamond Candles! So, what exactly are Diamond Candles? They’re candles that smell amazing and have a ring in them worth $10-$5,000! It is so fun! You want to burn it nonstop to get to the ring! It’s sort of like when you’re a little kid and you eat all the cereal really fast because you want to get to the toy at the bottom. They are just one of those fun things that you HAVE to buy!

4th of July!

Strut your patriotic style in classic american pieces like converses and denim!

What 4th of July Barbecue isn’t complete without some red, white, and blue beauty!

Make stripes with the red and blue by putting on a base coat of blue then add red stripes on top! Add white crackle for a truly patriotic look! As for makeup, put on some red lipstick! Then hair, add streaks with the colored wands, then curl! (The streaks wash out, so no worries) Happy 4th to all!

Beach Day!

Summer is here! That also means beach season is here! Here is a list of things I think are essential for a great beach day!

Beach Day!

1) This wetsuit protects you from sand, sun, and waves. Plus, it makes you look super cool and experienced.(Even if you’re not!) 2) These super cute jean shorts will look great as a cover up over the wetsuit when your ready for a snack. 3) Waterproof mascara is a MUST for any beach day, because who wants runny mascara? 4)  You can keep up with your friends, listen to music, and post pictures to Facebook immediately with an iPhone! 5) A skim board is my favorite kind of beach day fun! Although you fall a lot at first, it is definitely worth it to learn! 6) This waterproof camera sticks to your board so it can capture all the action of you surfing, skimming, or bodyboarding! 7) These rubber sandals are really durable, and cute! 8) This pretty tote is fun and brand name! Plus, it’s big enough to hold all your stuff. 9) This fun Bloomingdales towel is great for laying on at the beach! 10) These sunglasses make you look super  cool while protecting your eyes from the harsh sun. 11) Another favorite beach activity of mine is bodyboarding, and this is a really nice board! 12) Sunscreen is SUPER important, and this one is filled with antioxidants to keep your skin healthy. I hope you enjoyed this post and will have a great summer!
Also, here is a link for a video on skim boarding:

Beauty products that make you smile!

Meet the Eos team! Natural beauty products that make both your mind and skin happy. Turns out that having a chap-stick in your purse shaped like an orb can make your day seem just a little bit better. Besides looking cool, they actually do work really well! My personal favorite is the hand lotion(The one that looks like a stone).

It leaves your skin super smooth and smelling great! I also really like the chap-stick orbs. The lemon one gives you sunscreen,tangerine gives you medicated relief for when your lips are really dry, and the melon one smells amazing!

Until next time…

Spring Break Essentials

Since spring break is only 2 days away, I thought I’d give a list of what I think is essential for having a great vacation!
1)The Clarisonic is great for getting all of the salt water off your face after a long day at the beach. 2) Cute floral headbands add a pop of  spring color to any day! 3) The romper is perfect for a day at the beach because it can be a cover up, or with a necklace, become something you can wear to lunch! 4) These colorful bracelets are still great even if they get wet! 5) A backpack is a must for any vacation. It will hold anything, and keep it dry and secure. 6) This fun pink lip gloss is great for touching up when you can’t get to your makeup bag. One coat of lip color makes it look like you’re wearing makeup!7) Sunglasses are a must for anytime of year, but are especially important when you are out in the sun for a long time.(check out my post”Sunglasses” for more info.) 8) The iPod is perfect for relaxing on the beach or the trip to the beach.9) These neon jelly wedges work as beach shoes and a cute pair of sandals. 10) Last but certainly not least is sunscreen! It may not seem like much now, but after a couple hours on the beach or the outlets, you’ll be thankful you brought it! I hope all my readers have a great spring break!

Next Train to Paris

I’ve decided that I’m going to do a series of posts about a certain city in the world, and choose one fashion piece that represents the city and all of its glory. Today, I’ve set my eyes on Paris, France. With majestic gardens, antique charm, and a nick name that has the word love in it, Paris is most certainly a charmingly girly city. So, I’ve chosen these Channel earrings to represent Paris.

Beautiful, aren’t they? They might be a slight splurge, but just see all of the outfits they go with! They remind me of Paris mostly because of their shape: the rose. Roses and Paris go will together considering they both are associated  most commonly with romance.

My first outfit was meant for the Louvre museum in Paris. I thought it was very classical, but also weirdly kind of modern: just like the Louvre. It is made up of the earrings, an Abercrombie dress, and Gucci heels.

Next, I made up an outfit for strolling through downtown Paris. It involves the new trend of solid red plus navy stripes. It’s breezy and casual, prefect for a day of sightseeing. It is made of a Hollister shirt, the earrings, Polyvore heels, and a Mod Cloth skirt.

Finally, I made an outfit for the highlight of The City of Love, the Eiffel Tower. It’s super classic and sophisticated the ideal outfit for this architectural wonder. It’s made up of a H&M blazer, H&M shoes, Joe’s jeans, and the earings.

Anyways, I hope you liked this post, and will check next week for the next destination: New York, New York.

Until next time…

Magnetic nail polish

Yes, they do make such a thing.

No, magnets don’t stick to your nails after you use it. Darn! That could have been so cool! Oh well, it still looks awesome! You can get it at Sephora for $16. That may seem expensive, but it’s well worth it! I had seen it in a magazine and thought it was an interesting concept, but didn’t think much of it. I was at the mall a couple days ago and it randomly poped into my head. I headed to Sephora and asked about it; the sales lady took me straight to it. She tested it on my nails while I stood there listening intently to what she was explaining to do. She instructed me to apply a light coat, let it dry slightly, then apply a heavy coat and position the magnet in the cap over my nail. She lifted up the magnet and gasped. It looked so cool!

This is what it looks like on,

Pretty cool huh? Also, you can customize it by operating the magnet different ways! Another bonus, it dries super fast and looks like a pro did it once it’s dry. It comes in a couple of different colors, but they’re all dark because of the iron.

I’m still kind of bummed that don’t attract magnets, but whatever.

Until next time…

Summer thoughts in January

Today, I found this beautiful photograph from one of my favorite photographers, Clark Little. He works in Hawaii and gets bashed by waves to get shots like this by using a waterproof camera and hiding under waves. This one is titled,”Avalanche”. I thought it was cool because it actually looks like snow, but it’s actually a wave hitting a sunny beach in Hawaii.Here’s another one that I really liked, although it actually looks like it’s a wave. It’s called, “Beauty in the Beast”.

Can you imagine being on the other end of this beauty? I mean, look at how big it is! It looks like it goes on forever! I don’t believe this guy actually got hit by this and is still alive! Somehow he is, and was able to get this breathtaking shot!

Here is yet another spectacular photo…

This one is called “Explosion”.  This is one of my favorites of his shots. Look at all of the yellows and blacks!

For the sake of room I decided to make a collage of my favorite photos.

If you like any of these photos, you can find them on his website.

Four fun gifts and fun ways to wrap them

If you’re struggling to find gifts for the people on your list(like me), I thought I would give some inspiration to get the gift-giving part of your brain dusted of from last holiday season.

For the sporty girl on your list:A Nike running hoodie on clearance: $35. A great gift for any sport enthusiast on your list!

For the brand loving girl:

A coach photo keychain $30. This would be a prefect present with a picture of you and the girl you’re buying it for.

For the lover of sparkly items(or cosmetics, usually they go hand and hand):

This Betsey Johnson cosmetic bag is great for the girly girl on your list, and is made by a famous designer for only $48.

Lastly, for the music lover:

A book that is meant to write songs or compositions in, and includes quotes from famous musicians to get you inspired. Banes and Nobel’s:$7.95

After scouring the internet for a fun way to wrap presents, I stumbled upon this video. Although the way he wraps gifts is gaudy, it gave me a lot of fun ideas. Right click to view.
