Disclaimer: I received  product for free in exchange for an honest review. 
New Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus features 101 uses in one wonder bottle. This bottle comes with a reinvented trigger spray that delivers a fine mist for broader coverage and a faster drying time.
LOOK/STYLE: I really love the design of this bottle. The nozzle works really well. There are two settings: off and on. I really like this feature. Because there are curious children in my house, I had been worried that this stuff would be sprayed all over the place. Luckily, the off setting helped to keep the mist in the bottle when it was not in use. The trigger itself is also a great application tool, and I will discuss it more later on in the review. The white of the cap and the pale blue of the bottle look really great together. The colors help to deliver a calming, soothing feel that should be felt when doing laundry, The colors really helped me to feel relaxed. Next on the bottle, one can see the label. The labe…

Rubba Ducks are the first character based rubber ducks! Each rubber ducks is designed to promote and communicate its individual personality.

LOOK/STYLE: I  received 12 rubber ducks from Rubba Ducks. Six are pictured above and six are pictured below.  I have always been a huge fan of ducks, both real and rubber. One of my favorite ducks, Candee, is Christmas themed. Candee has beautiful red and white stripes with a silver hat on top of her head. This hat is actually painted with sparkle paint. Her symbol is a stocking. The reason this duck is one of my favorites is she actually smells like cinnamon. This is the first time I have ever encountered a rubber ducks with a scent that wasn't rubber! I found this to be really cool and unique. This, along with her design, helps make candee a cute Christmas decoration. Next up is Duckhound, my favorite duck. Duckhound, pictured ab…

REVIEW: STUPELL INDUSTRIES

LOOK/STYLE: I received this Antique Explorer World Map from Stupell Industries. The first thing I noticed about this map is the Latin saying on the top. This truly piqued my interest. I have always been intrigued by other languages(both dead and alive!). After doing some translations, I found out that the saying at the top roughly reads, 'A New World Geography Map with Oceans Labeled"(based on high school Latin lessons and some Google translate). I really like this saying as it helps give the map a unique feel to it. Along with this phrase, the map also has several different beautifully decorated textboxes with information about the map as well as the countries and oceans, all in Latin. I have not gotten around to translating this just yet, but I am really excited to learn more about this antique map. Based on my understanding of history, the continents a…

Taolei offers fashionable and trendy jewelry.
LOOK/STYLE: I received this Chain Wrap with Vintage Feather from Taolei. This necklace has two trendy, yet vintage looking, feathers at the ends. I have always loved how feathers look. These feathers have a very intricate and beautiful design that make them fashion-forward. this necklace has an 18K gold chain with gold  plated feathers. You'll be the talk of the town in this necklace! Overall, I thought this necklace, like all Taolei jewelry, was stylish!
COLOR: This necklace has a glamorous gold shine to it. The necklace glistens even when there is hardly any light. Even though the feathers look vintage, the coloring doesn't. The lustrous yellow of this necklace will leave you looking and feeling stunning.
FIT: This was the most appealing part of the necklace for me. This necklace is one long chain; there is not a cla…

Tooletries makes stylish and functional bathroom toiletry and travel products that grip onto shiny surfaces.

LOOK/STYLE: The first product I received was the Mighty Toothbrush Holder in blue. The first thing I noticed about this product is the small tray above the razor holder. I really love this tray because it can be used to hole anything. Personally, I use this practical tray to hold earrings that I forget to take off before I get in the shower. There are some small holes in this tray to drain water, but if my earrings are small, I attach the earring to the hole. The next thing I noticed about this product was the razor holder. I really loved this aspect of the product and found it to be really useful. I often find myself without a place to put my razor, and I end up trying to balance it on top of shampoo bottles. The Mighty Toothbrush Holder really offered a great …

Hey All! I know that a lot of you really love my fashion posts, so today, I will be showing you five outfits that highlight stylish and elegant summer shoes.

One amazing way to highlight brown shoes is to wear black and white. Black helps to highlight brown in a beautiful and unique way. This is a perfect outfit for those who like to wear hipster fashion.

Tossware offers upscale recyclable drinkware. Tossware is perfect for any event. The unique shatterproof drinkware delivers the feel of a true wine glass with a smooth rounded lip and crystal clarity.

LOOK/STYLE: The first glass I received was the 12oz Tumbler Jr. I love the elegant look of this glass. This glass comes in, what I consider to be, the perfect size. The beautiful simplicity of this glass makes it perfect for Scotch. Unlike its cheap counterparts, the 12oz Tumbler Jr. is graceful and stylish. The second glass I received was the 9oz Flute. The flute looks essential and posh. Compared to other, cheaper plastic flutes, this flute looks classy and luxurious. These glasses are perfect for every party; I especially recommend these glasses for a fun, outdoor, summer party.

Topganic offers products for all of your high quality hair needs!

LOOK/STYLE: I received these amazing hair products from Toganic. The first thing I love about the look of these products is the consistent design throughout the Brazilian Nut Oil Collection. All of these products have a black lid, brown container, and white label. I really love the brown container with the black lid. It gives the product a really chic look. I have always associated brown and black as a color combination that signifies elegance and style. I am also in love with the label on these products. The first thing I noticed on the label is the Topganic logo. This logo has a great, classy font in a vibrant green color.  To do the "i", Topganic uses a leaf. This helps to show how the product has an organic basis. Underneath this creative logo, the name of th…

One huge part of any season is dating. The biggest challenge that I come across while preparing for a date is trying to figure out what to wear. Here are my top five suggestions for fun summer dates:

This particular outfit is perfect for a night out on the down. A loose tank and jean shorts is great for a simple night walking around town. Be sure to wear cute sandals with the outfit. Finish the look by wearing simple jewelry!

A peplum blouse is perfect to wear to a casual dinner and a movie. Peplum blouses look great with dark skinny jeans and simple sandals!

Vismaya offers seasonal selections of scarves, kimonos, and shawls!

LOOK/STYLE: I received this immensely cute scarf from Vismaya Collection. This particular scarf is from the Spring/Summer 2016 collection. The first thing I noticed about this scarf is the variety of colored blocks sprinkled throughout the scarf. I think this is a super cute and unique design. This particular design looks great with this summer's trends. I also really like the fringe on the end of this scarf. Fringe is always in style during the summer, especially during festival season which is rapidly approaching. Overall, Vismaya Collection scarves are cute, trendy, and stylish!

COLORS: There is so much I love about this scarf in regards to color. The first thing I would like to discuss is the strip of pink. I love this! Pink has always made for a beautiful accent color, and there is no exc…

REVIEW: ZIM'S

Disclaimer: I received this product for free in exchange for an honest review. This picture is property of Zim's.

Zim's offers natural-based remedies that really work!

LOOK/STYLE: I received Zim's Max-Arnica. The first thing I noticed about the product is the use of the color green. Both the cap and the word, "Arnica" is green. This green indicates that the product is naturally based. I also love the blue accents throughout the bottle. They really compliment the green. The bottle also features a picture of a flower. This flower is just another indicator of how natural this product truly is. The label indicates that this product is designed for bruises and strains. Near the bottom of the bottle, there is another flower that shows how this product combines nature and science to create an effective product!

SCENT: When it comes to health and beauty products, scent is really important to me. I really hate it when a seemingly amazing product has an awful smell. Lucki…

#1-Sunshine

Thank you to highfashionfiles for submitting this outfit! This outfit features a brightly colored tank paired with skinny jeans. Brightly colored tanks are perfect for the summer!

#2-School Tomorrow

As I mentioned in a recent fashion post, a lot of high school and college aged girls chose to continue their schooling in the summer to get more credits and to get ahead. This outfit is school-appropriate and cute. Flowy tank dresses are becoming extremely popular and may even become one of the defining trends of the summer 2016 fashion season.

#3-Bralettes

Bralettes started to become popular during the summer 2015 season, but now they seem to be everywhere. Bralettes look best underneath a casual tee shirt paired with jeans.

#4-Casual

During summer, people tend to dress more casually as a way to ward off the heat. …

REVIEW: BALEGA

Balega offers high-performance socks for men and women.

LOOK/STYLE: The first sock I received was Ultra Light No-Show sock in Sherbet Pink. The first thing I noticed about the sock was the elastic arch support in the arch and ankle. I have never seen something like this before. As someone who has high arches, I was very interested in this. I also like the heel tab. This heel tab is becoming more popular in socks, especially for athletes. I noticed the sock had various mesh panels that aid in ventilation. I love this design idea. This is another design unique to Balega. The final thing I saw was the seamless toe. Although they are unavoidable, I really hate the look of seams on anything. This sock has an overall preppy feel to it. The next sock I received was the Enduro No-Show in bubblegum pink. This sock also had a seamless toe. Like the Ultra Light, this sock had ventilation …

USA Pan offers bakewear that won't corrode or rust. These pan and tins are dishwasher safe. More information can be found on USA Pan's website
LOOK/STYLE: I received this cookie sheet pan from USA Pan. The first thing I noticed about the pan is the light grey color. As well as being a unique shade in the bakewear industry, the color of this pan is bright and vibrant. I really like the scooped handle on this pan. This handle makes it easy to grip the pan when inserting and extracting the pan from the oven. I also love the fluted surface. This surface is unique to USA Pan. The final aspect I would like to discuss is the logo. USA Pan placed their logo on the front and back of this pan. I found this to be unique and charming. Overall, this product is chic and innovative.
USE: This product is simple and easy to use. Because of its non-stick coating, cookies are easily removed from the sheet.
