Fashion Friday Can It Be Fall Already?
Is everyone else dying for it to be fall already or is it just me? I want to layer, wear boots, and hats. But alas I live in Texas and it is only now starting to be bearable, that means around 90 degrees for those of you who don’t live here. So here is my best attempt at a fall look that wont result in a heatstroke.
clearly the whole wearing a cardigan thing didn’t last long.
Headband: Fished it out of one of my ribbon nick knack bins. But this headband from Forever 21 is similar http://www.forever21.com/Product/Product.aspx?BR=f21&Category=hair-accessories-headbands&ProductID=1030188061&VariantID=
Cardigan: Old Navy I bought is a few winters ago so they don’t have exactly the same one but they have some really great cardis regardless http://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/product.do?vid=1&pid=638142002
Dress: Cotton On bought it on sale so the print I’m wearing is not on their site but they always have this cut of dress, which I am thrilled about.http://us.cottonon.com/shop/product/jenny-dress-blue-foulard/
Flats: Payless. Another purchase that happened a while back but they have similar flats nonetheless http://www.payless.com/store/product/detail.jsp?catId=cat10088&subCatId=cat10276&skuId=132563080&productId=69922&lotId=132563&category=&catdisplayName=Womens
Hope you all enjoyed this Fashion Friday and that you have a wonderful weekend.
Fashion Friday Featuring Affirmats
Today’s Fashion Friday is featuring Affirmats. A wonderful company that specializes in eco friendly biodegradable jute yoga mats. Now one might think how could a yoga mat be featured in a fashion post? Well admittedly I would probably think the same thing if I hadn’t seen the beauty that is Affirmats. These mats are not only functional (non slip, nothing worse than a mat that makes you feel like Bambi on ice) but they are beautiful and in turn make oneself feel beautiful. Its hard enough to get the urge to workout but having a mat “tell” you “Look how pretty you are” “I am wonderfully made” or “I am healthy I am wealthy I am love” is just the encouragement you need when trying to tackle “that impossible” pose you’re dying to accomplish. I have never loved a mat so much and I encourage you to check out this rad company http://www.affirmats.com/Home.html
I call this face “Keeping eye on the wild squirrel” 😉
I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you all check Affirmats out!

Fashion Friday Featuring Bomber Betty
So last Friday my package from Bomber Betty arrived, I got a lipstick in the color Burlesque-esque and a bronzer in the color goddess, I could not be more thrilled, they are absolutely perfect.
Seriously can we all take a moment to appreciate how perfect the packaging is? Bomber Betty was created by Jessica Sawicki a Chicago based makeup artist, all of the cosmetics are hand made with the absolute best mineral ingredients available, are natural, paraben-free, and cruelty free, as well as hand packaged! Now being that Jessica is makeup artist you can rest assured this makeup applies beautifully and lasts well into the day. I mean who better than a makeup artist to create a line of makeup? Find more about this awesome company here http://www.bomberbetty.com/index.html
Clearly I’m having a good time.
No shoes, its time to jump in puddles!
and giggle! I hope you all enjoyed this and that you do yourself a favor and buy some fabulous makeup from Bomber Betty!
Clear Umbrella: Target http://www.target.com/p/totes-clear-bubble-umbrella-silver-trim/-/A-10780081#prodSlot=medium_1_6&term=clear+umbrella I love this umbrella!
Bronzer: Bomber Betty http://www.shop.bomberbetty.com/Mineral-Blush-Goddess-2006.htm I have been on the hunt for the perfect bronzer and I have found it in Bomber Betty’s “Goddess”. This bronzer goes on evenly and looks ever so natural, most bronzers you have to be so crazy careful to use a very light hand or you’ll end up looking like someone from the cast of Jersey Shore. But this bronzer goes on lightly resulting in a perfect sunkissed glow!
Lipstick: Bomber Betty http://www.shop.bomberbetty.com/Lipstick-Burlesque-Esque-7035.htm I love this lipstick! It goes on smoothly but doesn’t feel like its going to slip and slide like so many other lipsticks can, that gets ugly fast, let me tell ya. Burlesque-esque is a beautiful bright red with blue undertones which makes your teeth look nice and white, plus its matte which I adore! This lipstick should be a staple for every woman if you ask me.
Polka Dot blouse: Charlotte Russe. Now this is the problem I am always faced with, I shop “out of season” so I can never find the link to what I am actually wearing but here is a top at forever 21 which is similar http://www.forever21.com/Product/Product.aspx?Br=F21&Category=top&ProductID=2027357073&VariantID=
Skinny Jeans: Old Navy http://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=85736&vid=1&pid=576066012
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
“What I Wore” Wednesday
So I may or may not keep up with another outfit post but it’s worth a shot. This outfit I wore on Sunday for a quiet girls night out. Me and some of my lovely friends went to dinner then onto see Star Trek Into Darkness, which is a crazy awesome movie! Benedict Cumberbatch is incredible as Khan. I decided to go with a fresh faced not too fussy outfit and I think this was the perfect balance of style and comfort.
My absolute favorite thing about this dress has got to be the opening in the back!
Earrings: Cracker barrel, you can find just about everything there!
Flower: I bought it at the dollar store.
Dress: Cotton On http://us.cottonon.com/search/?q=raven+vintage+dress couldn’t find the print I’m wearing, but the other prints are gorgeous and this baby is on sale for only $10!
Hope you all enjoyed the post! Have a happy Wednesday.
Hello blog readers. I thought I might try my hand at a new regular, scratch that make it semi regular (this is me we’re talking about after all) blog post series, titled Music Monday, this can be about my favorite cd, song, musician, music video, or whatever else I am currently digging that relates to music. So for today’s post I thought I might give you a cd recommendation. I bought myself Keith Harkin’s debut album through Amazon, it arrived last Monday, and I have been unashamedly playing this single cd all week.
OK so I can hear what some of you are thinking, “uh huh sure it’s great, whatever you’re just one of those fan girls, who would buy his cd even if he sounded like a dying cat”. Well you my dear are wrong, very rarely do I buy cd’s. Most of the time I wait for it to hit youtube or pandora cause I’m cheap like that. I also don’t just get the sudden urge to buy whatever music, since I work hard for my money, I want to know that what I am buying is going to be great! Well I hadn’t any doubts, cause I have been to two of Keith’s shows and each time I was blown away by his beautiful vocals, and killer guitar playing skills. Seriously even if Keith wasn’t as good-looking as he so obviously is, I would still be just as much of a fan. Because you cannot argue with raw talent! Honestly I feel like that is the best description I can give Keith…Raw talent! His cd has finally been released and I would highly recommend that you go out and buy yourself a copy, and then buy a copy for someone that you like, because music this great deserves to be shared with the masses.
everyone with the ability to hear would love this album!
Keith has some of his own songs on this album which are sublime, as well as compilations and some fabulous covers of classic songs (Everybody’s Talkin’ At Me is my favorite cover). Every song knocks it out of the park though. There is truly a song for everyone on this album, so no matter what your musical tastes may be you will not be disappointed. I have placed the links below to where you can buy his album. Hope all of you have a very Happy Musical Monday!
