REVIEW:BOMBAS

These socks have a lot going for them. The company is great based on the fact that for every sock purchased, they donate a sock to a needy person. Such a great cause! Keep this in mind as you read the review, and next time you are in need of some socks. 
Looks: I love the colors of the socks I received. The pink and black are cute, but the grey is by far the cutest. Each of the socks have super cute designs on them. Every sock says 'Bombas" on it. They also have, what appears to be, cute honeycomb designs as well as a bee with a crown. All in all, very creative and very cute.
Are they itchy/do they bother sensitive skin: I know the annoyance of socks that are itchy and bother your skin, but luckily these socks are made of high quality material that does not bother your skin. 
Can they go t…

Purse Goals?

Image
Hey everyone! So today I decided to post some pictures of my favorite purses that I own! I hope you enjoy


I love this purse because it was handcrafted in Ethiopia. This purse is beautiful and nice. No other words can describe it!



This is my favorite purse. Whenever I switch purses, I always find myself going back to this one. This bag is perfect. I know that a lot of my fans, aka you guys, also have this purse so be sure to leave a comment saying what you think of it.



Every girl needs a leather satchel. Enough said.



I hope you guys enjoyed this short post. I was super busy today as seen by all my new reviews posted! I promise longer posts for this weekend!!

REVIEW: POMCHIES

Image
DISCLAIMER: I RECEIVED THESE PRODUCTS FOR FREE IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW. MY VIEWS DO NOT REPRESENT ANY OTHER BRAND, COMPANY, OR PERSON. MY OPINIONS MAY DIFFER FROM YOURS. The style ideas were taken from the Pomchies booklet I received from  pomchies. 


Hold on tight folks-this is gonna be one long post. Pomchies was kind enough as to send me almost all of their products! So I felt like I should discuss each product individually and then sum it all up at the end for you guys. The fact that they are all hand made just makes this so much better. I love original, hand made things. 

ORIGINAL POMCHIES I actually really enjoyed how this product looks. I received the Party Girl colored one. I received several compliments on it when I wore it this past Saturday. I love the fabric they are made out of. My only complaint is I had trouble keeping them in my hair due to the fact that my hair is very thick. But other than that, I loved them. Style Idea: Wear it at the end of your braid!

My Favorite Shoes.

Image
These shoes are must have! They are perfect with skater skirts. I love them! And if you love them too, be sure to give this blog a follow. If you have them too. be sure to leave a comment with a pic of your shoes. Again really nice shoes, be sure to leave a like and follow me.



I have wanted these boots for a very long time, and they finally came back in stock. Now that I have these, I can say they are great! I actually found them at target for about 35 USD. I believe they are also in stock online.

These are the most affordable and comfortable plants. They are so cute especially in the summertime.


All I can say about these boots is that they look so nice! I love them.


I brought these shoes to a wedding reception; they were perfect for when my feet started to hurt. I changed from my heels to these and still looked oh so cute. They are wonderful for weddings. They are a tad pricey but well worth it.

REVIEW: BOOGINGHEAD LUNCH PACKS

Image
This packs are called Pack'ems. I think this is a super unique idea, but lets get down to the review. Disclaimer: I received these products for free and my views may differ from yours. My opinions are my own and do not represent any brand, company, or person. My opinions may differ from yours.


Look: I love the look of these bags for many reasons. First off, they are adorable! I love the zig-zag stripes on them. I also love the fact that they are gender neutral. My son felt like the were "boyish" enough for him to use and I also felt like my daughters could use them. 

Are they safe: Absolutely. No need to worry about plastics coming into your food or anything of that sort. These bags are completely safe for you and your children. 

Does it make the food taste odd: Nope. The food tastes just the same. 


What other products does the company sell: The company offers several different products geared towards babies and toddlers. If you have younger children, I would definitely take…

REVIEW: RTGS PRODUCTS

DISCLAIMER: I RECEIVED THESE PRODUCTS FOR FREE AND MY OPINOINS ARE MY OWN AND MAY DIFFER FROM YOURS

PICTURES:


Why should I care: Well my dearest readers. I know that most of you are ages 18-24 and then the next closest age group is 25-30. So close that some days one group has more viewers and then the next day is the opposite. Many of you are going for a "tumblr" room or you are still in college and live in a dorm. Many people on tumblr have lights in their room. Well RTGS Products lights are, in my opinion, awesome for those going for the tumblr theme. Which is what I am going for. Despite the mildy unkept bed, I really enjoy the tumblr aesthetic and these lights do not just come in variations of white, they come in all sorts of colors. So you can theme your room or dorm for the holidays or deck it out in your favorite color.

Is it worth the price: YES! This is one of the very first products that I have actually fallen in love with. On my canopy, I have the 60LED and those ar…

Make up Basics

Image
Are you new to makeup? Or are you ready for a new look. Today I will be teaching all of you some makeup basics. I will be answering questions I have gotten in the past that involve makeup here to help you out.

Q:How should I start?

A: With a clean face! I always wash my face with a gentle cleanser and pat it dry. Save your more intense face washing for at night. I would also recommend toner to those of you with oily or combination skin.

Q:Should I moisturize?

A: Absolutely! Start off by choosing a moisturizer that is made for you skin type. Then apply it to your face. If you dont like wearing too much stuff on your face, I recommend a tinted moisturizer.

Q:Should I apply primer?

A: Primer is not necessary. But it does help achieve certain looks. Id say if youre a beginner to stay away from the primer until you get the basics down.

A:Should I apply concealer?

A: I use concealer everyday. Its great for hiding discolorations, acne, or dark circles. I do recommend it to beginners. Like I…

Fashion Wish List

Image
Hey everyone! Today I am posting my wishlist of outfits that I wish I had. I hope you enjoy and I know all of you can relate.

#5-Denim Cropped Pants
Denim is like the heart of fashion. Fashion began with denim. Okay well thats not really true but denim is a necessity. Especially these jeans. These jeans are the timeless piece of clothing my wardrobe needs. I already own the scarf, but that grey t-shirt is something I definitely need to invest in. Unfortunately, my hair doesn't actually do buns due to the insane curls I have. But I will find a way to make it work. I own brown eye shadow and if you dont GO GET SOME IMMEDIATELY. Also those sunglasses and shoes are so cute. This is such a classic fall outfit. Share this with your friends and educate them on the art of wearing denim.


#4- Ankle Boots
Okay guys, I know what youre thinking-1, you already own ankle boots and 2, this isnt an outfit. And to that I say both are true but I dont care. These boots are so amazing they deserve their o…

Random Updates for the Lovelies

Image
I was just insanely bored today and decided to just blog away like I used to do when I worked with Schoola. Today was insanely uneventful except for a few random things.

1- I got a ton of love from all you girls going to your homecoming dance in the next monthish. Im so glad all of you liked my suggestion about the mint earrings. All of you young ladies are going to look so fabulous out on the dance floor. I encourage all of you to post your picture in the comments or to my Facebook Page so I can make blog post about them sometime in the future. 
2-I finally got around to reviewing my Inkhead product that I received. You can check out that review on my blog. It was sitting on my desk all week. Im surprised I even got around to blogging Ive been so busy with my actual company that I encourage all you crazy kids to go take a good look at. Ive also been bogged down with responding with emails. A few new companies were interested in working with me on a one time review basis and so I had …
