June Favorites

Wow am I late! haha it's already the 18th of July! Well I apologize for that and I promise my July favorites will be up before August 18th haha. Anyway, there is not that many this month, but lets get started! Oh and these are not in any specific order, I love them all the same!

Noir Tease
For June this was one of my favorite perfumes, (it still is) but in June I wore it all of the time. It reminds me of Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy, except a little more vanilla-y. I am pretty sure you guys have already heard me rave about this before, but if you haven't...Go try it out! I promise you won't regret it.

So the next thing I have been loving is Make it or Break it. While I am waiting for the new season to come out, I am currently re-watching all of the episodes. Right now I think I am on season 1 episode 11. So I have quite a lot of episodes to watch! Anyways, I hadn't watched this show until a friend recommended it to me and I have been loving it ever since! I definitely think you should watch it! They have all the episodes on hulu. 
Conair Infiniti Curling Wand
Next is my favorite curler! During the summer I tend to curl my hair (or make it wavy) a lot and this is my favorite wand! If you want really tight pretty spirals then you can curl it the day of, but if you want really pretty waves then you can curl it the night before and sleep on it! Either way this is definitely worth the $29 that I paid for it! It also has multiple heat settings and I love the no-clamp feature.
Alright so this next thing is very general and it is earrings. Not specifically the pair shown above, but all earrings. Studs and dangling earrings! I love wearing earrings because they help compliment your outfit and I find that I wear them more during the summer because I am not rushed in the mornings.
So my next and last favorite for this month is Vaseline. I love it specifically for what I mentioned in an earlier blog, and that is to wipe away your mascara in case it ran. Even if you apply it and you get some on your eyelid it works perfectly! I generally use this if I forget to put on my waterproof mascara and my mascara ends up running while I am at the pool. If you rub a little of this one, its gone! Vaseline or Petroleum Jelly work!

Alright so those are all of my June favorites and I hope you guys enjoyed! Keep commenting and subscribing!


My Wishlist (:

Hey girls! I am back today! So I was watching t.v. earlier this morning and I found a target and office depot ad. I am currently redoing my room and my new school year is coming up fast so I just cut out things that I found that I liked. Of course theres a couple makeup products in there too! So here we go!!!!
Sorry the writing is backwards and you can't see the numbers...
Okay so I do realize that you can't see the numbers but we are going to make this work...
   1. The first thing is the green ad at the top. This is for Skullcandy Ink'd earbuds. I have been looking for earbuds besides the apple ones for a long time and so when I found these and noticed that they came in PINK! I thought I would cut them out to remind me that I needed them! and there on sale for $13!
   2. The second thing (one to the left) is a Post-it Notes Cube that contains 500 post-it notes. It seems that I am always out of post-it notes and I love these because they come mostly in pink. Plus, 500 sheets for only $3?! haha i'm sold.
   3. One more to the left is number three which is a TI-84 graphing calculator. I know I will need one for school so I figure why not just get it now right? haha. I love this particular one because it comes in pink! But i don't know if I want the pink or the me! 
   4. Okay so below the earbuds is numero 4! and number four is the L'Oreal Milliion Lashes mascara! I almost bought this at ulta, but I decided not to. So many people have raved about this and I still need to get it!
   5. To the left of the mascara is the L'Oreal Infallible Le Rouge lipstick. A girl always needs more lipstick, and this one has good pigmentation! The color looks amazing and I can't wait to try it!
   6. Below the lipstick is the Room Essentials storage ottoman...First of all it comes in pink! Next, It is a comfy chair/storage unit and is on sale for $15. As you can already tell, I am sold!!
   7. Now we are into Office depot. So below the chairs is number 7 which is a locker essentials ad. I just cut this one out because I know I will be needing these cute locker accesories (:
   8. Next to that are the fashion binders. I know that the ones shown aren't very cute, but there were more and I accidentally cut them off, so I'll see if there cute!
   9. Last one! Above the binders are the Paper Pro Compact Stapler. Now I don't know if any of you guys have tried this stapler but it works like no other! But once again I am stuck at a dead end. Pink or Blue? Probably pink haha. 

Anyways, I hope you guys enjoyed my little wish list! I hopefully will be able to get some of these products tonight! I promise there will be more blogs coming up! Keep commenting and Subscribing!

DIY: Drab to Fab!

Hey! Do you like the title? I came up with it myself actually ;) Anyway I do have a DIY project for all of you today! Basically, you can take your old, out of style t-shirt, and turn it in to something new! Wanna know how? Let's get started! Alright so here is what you will need:
Supplies: An old t-shirt (I had tie-dyed doesn't matter),  pencil, scissors, ruler, and tape
Okay so I know that most of us keep up with the latest fashion trends, but sometimes can't afford to buy all of the new trends (although this one is fairly inexpensive). So I figured this out and I really like the results, just keep in mind that this was my very first time doing it, so it may or may not look that great :)

Step 1: You are going to cut off the bottom of the shirt where it is hemmed. You are going to cut off just enough so that all of the bottom hem has been cut off. (about an inch of fabric) Mine is pictured below:
So this is what the shirt looks like with out the hem on the bottom (In the picture it looks basically the same)

And if your wondering what  I am talking about when I say "bottom hem" it's the thing above right there. So its just like the sewing on the bottom. Oh and on my nails is nicole by opi in play fair :)

Step 2: Tape and Cut
     So basically you are going to try the shirt on and mark where you would like your fashionable fringe to start. I did it with a pencil so it will wash out. Then once you mark it, your a going to take a peice of tape the width of your shirt and line it up where the pencil mark is....make sure its straight! If your wondering why I didn't just put a pencil line across the whole shirt, I cannot make a straight line for the life of me. Anyway, next you are going to start near the edge of the shirt and cut a line up to the tape. Then using your ruler, you are going to go about a half-inch away and cut a parallel line. It should look like this:

Step 3: The Knotting Begins
     So now begins the cool part. So basically all you do is make one knot at the base of the strand (about where the tape ends), and then make another halfway down the strand...Which looks like this: 
Sorry that its not too visible...

Step 4: Repeat
    Okay so basically all your going to do now is steps 2 and 3 all around the bottom of the shirt! It is actually really easy but it will take a long time. I recommend watching tv or listening to music while you finish this project. Here are some more pictures:
Just starting
So this is what it looks like if you have only done a few strands. But in this picture you can tell what I mean when I say one knot at the base, and one halfway down...

Little over halfway!
Wahoo! Halfway done!  It's really coming along!...

Finally, It's finished!

Dun Du-Du-Dun!!!!!
This is what it looks like on! Love it!!!!!
Thank you for reading my first ever DIY blog! Comment if you would like more!!!!

My Room So Far!

Sorry for the not really real post yesterday :/ I guess you could say I've been a little out of it lately. But that is over now! Anyway, yesterday I spent most of the day researching furniture and stuff that I want for my room. Well I have found practically all of it and so I am really excited :) So last night at about 9:30 we made a quick run to Home Depot and bought some tan colored paint. I bought three shades, and before I painted them on my wall, I liked the middle color the best...
Left: Basketry, Middle: Mushroom Bisque, Right: Plateau
Sorry the quality isn't very good... So I painted the three samples on my wall and they came out really darkk. But I like the lightest shade a lot. My mom suggested that I should get samples of the next two lightest shades that are lighter than plateau. I think I am going to do that just so I can be sure. Anyway, here is what they look like on my wall :
Top Left: Basketry, Top Right: Mushroom Bisque,  Bottom: Plateau

Same Order
Okay so this is how they look on the walls. On the walls, I like the lightest color better but I think that if I paint all four walls this color it will be too dark? That is why I might get the next two lightest shades. What do you guys think? Do you think I should paint it the lightest color (plateau)? Or get lighter colors?
Thank you!

Redoing My Room!

Hey Guys, so before the summer is over, I am going to redo my room! I already have a couple things picked out, but I want you guys to help me with rest! So I know I want my room to be a light tan color, and I know that I want the furniture to be a dark brown. Anyway, my favorite colors are pink, gold, purple, really anything. So I was just wondering if you guys could tell me some good websites where I can find good bedding and furniture? Thank you!

Happy Fourth of July!!!

Hey Girls! I just wanted to wish you and your families a happy Fourth of July! I can't believe were already in July...that means summer is like halfway over :( Anyway, what are you girls doing on this lovely day? My family hasn't quite decided yet, but I think that we may go to Old Town and celebrate there with all their festivities. Then when it gets dark, we will see our fireworks! So anyway, I just wanted to wish you guys a happy fourth, and I wanted to show you my outfit that is somewhat patriotic.
Full Body
My Sweater

My Shorts

Some Bracelets
Alright, so this is kind of my patriotic and nautical look all in one :) But today I tried to make it more patriotic by adding my red and white accessories :) The striped sweater is from H&M, my white shorts are from Tillys, and my white bracelet is from H&M (the other two were gifts)

I just wanted to wish everyone a happy fourth of July! Have fun!!!
