Happy Wednesday!

I'm slowly getting back to posting my outfits posts! I honestly missed it being away for two weeks and getting swamped with the new house. Not that's a bad thing or anything! So we're officially moved in and we've much unpacked everything and starting to settle in. I also am gathering ideas on how to decorate the whole place. It's been a long passion of mine to interior design so we'll see what I can come up with! In the meantime, I recently received a package of lovely pieces from Rosie Fox. Rosie is the designer of the brand and she was so sweet to ask me to pick out pieces that best suited my style! Rosie Fox is based in London and is known for her vintage inspired jewelry and accessories. I was pretty impressed by how much she offered and how pretty they were. They're definitely unique to any other jewelry that I own. 

So with this outfit, I'm showing off this vintage long multi-strand silver necklace. I wanted to wear an edgy girly look so I paired it with a denim vest and a simple white tee. Add a cute polka dot skirt and black heels and not to mention some red lips, you're ready to go out! I actually wore this outfit out to a bbq with the family since it was such a nice sunny day out. And this denim vest that I got recently at Forever 21 was the perfect fit for me. I've been on the search for a denim vest for a while and I didn't know this until yesterday but it's called a Cool Girl denim vest. hahaha... how fitting for an blog title! Right? ;)

To learn more about Rosie Fox, check out her Facebook Twitter, and Instagram!

Also, there's a Stella & Dot trunk show this week, so please sign up for it here and along with a cool giveaway to win some pretty pieces from Stella & Dot (here)!

Warby Parker - Meridian Collection

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

 Hey guys! I wanted to take the time to announce a new collection that launches today by Warby Parker. If you guys haven't heard of Warby Parker, they're a company that provides an affordable prescription eyewear and sunglasses that looks great and still has the higher-quality. They've also partnered up with non-profit organizations to distribute a pair of glasses to someone in need for every pair sold. 

Their new collection is called the Meridian Collection which translate the look of a renegade traveler into a wearable adventure. Perfect for the Summertime! There are three new sunglasses frames that features dramatic details with a good amount of metallic shade. These sunglasses - Flannery, Exley, and Raskin are teardrop-shaped and fashioned from Japanese ion-lated titanium. They're available in Jet Silver and Polished Gold. Both would look great on men and women! 

My choices from the collection would be:

Flannery sunglasses in Polished Gold

 Both mavericks and traditionalists 
will appreciate the classic, polished 
Flannery—a medium-fit pair perfect 
for playing hooky or completing 
more stately activities.

Exley sunglasses in Jet Silver

Exley’s charm lies in its shape: 
a flattering take on the teardrop, 
rimmed with a just-right metallic 
shade that offsets both the fairest 
and most sunburned of tones.

Which style of the Meridian sunglasses would you choose?

Product Review: Influenster Spring VoxBox

Friday, June 21, 2013

Happy Friday guys!!

Sorry for being MIA.. some of you who follows me on Instagram might have seen that my husband and I recently bought our first house! It was a very stressful process with choosing what we wanted and having the builders get the house completed last month for us to close on time! So for the past two weeks, we've been busy busy moving things and unpacking. Hence why I've been gone and haven't had the time to blog. It also developed a little backlog of blog posts that I've been wanting to put together which one is this product review of the Influenster Spring Fever VoxBox that I had received last month. I'm hoping to have some home decor blog posts done too in the near future! ;)

Influenster had sent theVoxBox for my review of all the products that was in it. It was full of goodies from hair product to beauty to even food! Here's the list of items that was in my Spring Fever VoxBox:

 imPress Broadway Nails Press-on Manicure: I wasn't thrilled when I first saw these in the VoxBox only because I don't like using press-on nails.. plus I have a bad habit of picking at them so they wouldn't have stayed on for very long. So I actually didn't bother trying them on even though the hot pink color was a pretty shade! Oh well.. in my honest opinion I rather go to the nail salon and get acrylic nails then spend my time messing around with these.

Secret Outlast Clear Gel Deodorant: The bottle shows up to 48 hours long-lasting but by that time I would've taken a shower and the deodorant probably would've washed off by then. hahaha.. but I did use it and the smell wasn't overly powerful which is a pet peeve of mine if the smell is too 'perfumey'. It glides on clear and no deodorant markings on the clothes which is a plus! 

Schwarzkopf Professional Osis+ Dust It: I tried this hair product twice and was surprised that you simply just sprinkle the powder right onto your head. I tried to put a little bit on but a lot came out at first which I had to hurry and comb it out. Then I felt the powder absorbed into my hair and it made my hair somewhat stiff to create the more volume. I used a teasing comb and volume is what I got! I am still iffy about this product though and will have to continue to use it in order to get a hang of it.

TastyKake Kandy Bar Kakes with Reese's Peanut Butter: When I first opened the box, this was the first thing my eyes went to. Yummy! Unfortunately I have been really good at eating healthy so I took one tiny bite of it and gave the rest to my husband. He gladly took it and ate the rest and said he liked it. I thought it was alright just because it was more like a soft cake than a dense chewy cake (like a brownie!) that I was hoping for. The reese's peanut butter was a delicious bonus though.. mmm reese's peanut butter cups!

NYC Applelicious Glossy Lip Balm in Big Apple Red: This was probably the only product that I truly liked out of everything! I have been on a search for the right red lip balm without it being too dark or too bright for my lips. This lip balm had an apple print on top which I thought was cute and the smell was nice! It glides on nicely and kept my lips moisturized. The only downside was reapplying every few hours but what do I expect more from a lip balm right? I have been wearing it to work and it seemed to go well with my outfits. I like this shade of red and will use this lip balm more often!

Tell me which product you think looks the best in this VoxBox?

Disclaimer: I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Happy Wednesday!

June is here which means Summer will be creeping up soon! And one thing for sure is adding more dresses to the closet for the upcoming warm weather! :) After years of always passing up on maxi dresses, they're just way too long.. I finally was able to find one that was the right length for me! Well thanks to my husband that is! I had found this cute striped maxi dress at Old Navy but it was big.. so I went online because they offer petite sizes (great for me!). When I received it, the length was still a tad long and I hate to hem it. So the Hubs helped me out by shrinking it in the washer and dryer. I don't know what he did but the length (as you can see) is now perfect for me! And I'm wearing flat sandals too! haha.. I was so happy that I bought another maxi and am bringing it to the Hubs for him to do laundry again. ^__^

What do you love wearing with a maxi dress?
