DIY Charm Bracelets...

Hello Darlings!!!

Of course it's been a while!! Story of this blogs LIFE!! haha Hope you are all enjoying your summer!! As for me, well lets just say I've been keeping busy! Specially on my Social Networks... If you don't already know... I did get an Instagram && of course the addictive social network Pinterest ...

I don't know about everyone else but  I pin so many things on Pinterest but I never do ANY of it! Last week I decided to change that... I got together with one of my close friends and we had a DIY night.... We decided to make charm bracelets and I wanted to share with you how they turned out....

 What we used
 Charms, Yarn, Bracelets, Crazy Glue, Jumper rings
 I'm obsessed with Paris and photography and traveling so these charms were perf
 3 of my bracelets

 My friend Cindy was having a hard time with the yarn
 Cindy's Bracelets... I loved them

 My Bracelets!! 
I love how they turned out!! 

I used old bracelets that were either rusted or slightly bent... Totally gave them life again!! 

Anyway, hope you enjoyed my DIY post!!

The songs I've had on REPEAT...

Hello Lovelies!!

So lately I have been on a Country Music kick... I am deeply obsessed with Miranda Lambert she's just amazing & her girl group Pistol Annies are so fuckin kick ass!!

In my opinion the songs you over play are the ones that you most relate to or can make you relive something or remind you of someone! I've been going through some things personally, that have been pretty tough to deal with.. So, what better therapy than MUSIC THERAPY?? lol I'm gonna leave you some songs that I've been obsessing over... Hopefully, I can make one of you a country music lover!! haha ;)

Miranda Lambert ... Over You

Miranda Lambert... Momma's Broken Heart

Sugarland.. STAY

Pistol Annies... I feel a Sin Comin' ON

Some of these songs are a little older... but EH... Who cares!! lol

Happy Tuesday Girls!!

Mask Monday!!

Hello lovelies!!

In my most recent GlossyBox I recieved a Entre Belle Collagen & Aloe Vera Hydro Mask so I decided to give it a try tonight...

The package reads "Restructuring and moisturising set with Collagen & Aloe Vera improves the skins elasticity and provides optimum skin hydration. For fresh-looking and even skin texture. Suitable for all skin types"

TIP: Use it just before bedtime to reap optimum benefits

These masks come in a box of 10 for $39.50
 
 
I left the mask on for about 30 minutes while I put my feet up and relaxed watching my favorite show.... Then I rinsed with warm water....

 
No matter how hard you try these face masks will always make you look like LEATHER FACE!!
My favorite part of doing this face mask was walking around the house and scaring my parents and my dogs!!
 
After the mask my face was super soft and smooth!! It feels amazingly refreshing as well!!
 
I would definately, use these masks again!!!
 
Til next time!!

Fashion In The Street Festival 2013

Hello lovelies!!!

This weekend I went downtown Chicago for the Fashion in the Street Festival... Unfortunately, the weather was unbareable!!! Yes, it may be June but it was below 50 degrees so it was very hard for me to stay for all the runway shows...
CHICAGO SKYLINE

FASHION IN THE STREET 2013
 
 
 
 
 
Fashion in the streets is a festival where the local boutiques and upcoming fashion designers put on runway shows for the public to see their merchandise & purchase. Too bad the weather was crummy!!

Vegas for the weekend....

Hello Darlings!!!

Like I mentioned before I will be going on a trip this weekend.... I'm going to Vegas for my sisters bachelorette!! I'm super excited since it will be my first time going to Vegas as an adult and legally able to gamble and do the fun stuff!! 

Anyway, I wanted to share some of the stuff I'm going to be taking with me!! I am actually quite proud of myself since I did not OVER PACK but... I may have gone over board on the make up!! To my defense the ladies I am going with, are not that into make up so I was asked to bring extra!!

First thing is first.... what I did today to prepare myself for my trip....

1. Hair & Face Mask
2. Mani & Pedi
3. Exfoliated my body
4. plucked the BROWS

Me time!!
 
Now on to the goodies!!!
Bath & Body Works Pure Paradise lotion, body mist, & Beach Glow Body lotion... This stuff smells AMAZING!!! Pretty sure this will be my signature scent this summer!!
 
The hair products I chose to travel with me!
 
My Tanning lotions.. Hawaiian Tropic are my FAVE I buy these products religiously!!
 

I don't know why these pictures came out so bad!! Anyway, I got most of my things waterproof concealer/mascara/deo since I will be spending most of my time at the pool
 
The lipsticks I'm bringing with me.. I mostly picked bright colors since I wont be really doing anything drastic to my eyes....
 
 
The only palettes I'm bringing with me... Lorac Pro and Sleek I Divine
 
Now for Face I am bringing My sleek palette/ Model Co Cheek and lips tint && Mary Kay Cream Blush....
 
This is the only foundation I'm taking && it's mostly just for night time use... Then the pencils, liquid eyeliners, pigments, Eyebrow gel

I also took pictures of a couple of outfits I MIGHT be wearing.... I'm a pretty simple kind of girl so these outfits are nothing fancy...
 
I think this is flirty/colorful/ & fun
 
Pool Party ready.. Bright and Comfy
 
Edgy with a pop of color... This one is my favorite.. I love the rebel kinda look...
 
Hope you girls have a wonderful & safe Memorial Day Weekend!!!

Summertime weather!!

Hello Lovelies!!!

This weekend was super busy for me... I have been shopping all weekend for a trip that I will be doing Memorial Day weekend... ((Insert my happy dance here!!))

To be honest with you all, I HATE malls and shopping.. I do most of my shopping online because I just don't like crowds and pushy sales people!!

In the midst of all of the shopping madness I took some time to take some pix... Hope you all enjoy!!

Selfies never fail!!!
 Train Tracks
I know super picture overload!!
 
I'm going to be posting some of the makeup and clothes I bought for my trip && my traveling MUST haves I'm thinking tomorrow so talk to you pretty ladies soon!!
