Shoe Racks!

Hey Everyone!

I wanted to share with you something that will instantly make your closet look more organized! Those things that I am talking about are shoe shelves!

I got mine at Target and they were about $25 a piece! I got two, because I actually have quite a lot of shoes.

Here are some before and after pictures of what my shoes now look like:

As you can see they created a really organized vibe which I love! It's now so easy to see everything and have things not buried under other things.

I really hope that you guys get shoe shelves too! They are a life saver!

Splurge or Save? Watches

Hey Everyone!

If you guys follow me on my YouTube channel, then you know that I am in love with my Michael Kors watch. I wear it almost every day, it's great quality, goes with everything and very stylish.

I think that it is completley worth it to splurge on one of these watches. I got mine for Christmas almost 2 years ago.

Here's a picture of what mine looks like:
The first time I saw this watch though, I fell in love. I thought it was classic, gorgeous, but I was only 12 when I first saw it and 13 when I got it! I waited a whole year until I could get my hands on this baby and I'm so glad that I finally did!

So I think that if you want to invest in a nice watch, go for Michael Kors first and then you can build your collection up from there. I think its definitely worth the splurge<3

I hope that you guys liked this splurge or save post!

Trend Alert: Turquoise Jewelry!

Hey Everyone!

I wanted to a trend alert on something that has really always been popular, but has really been showing up a lot lately and that is turquoise jewelry!

I think that turquoise jewelry is beautiful and it goes with everything. It's classic but can also be modern depending on the setting that it is in.

Here are some pictures of turquoise jewelry:

Turquoise can be really expensive, but also cheap! They have some gorgeous turquoise jewelry at Forever  21 and Nordstrom!

You could pair a really gorgeous, chunky turquoise necklace with a white cami, jean jacket, some black skinny jeans and riding boots and that would be gorgeous for fall! You could also pair some big turquoise earrings with a white maxi dress and some strappy sandals and that would be perfect for the springtime!

I hope that you guys found this post helpful on a new trend and also how you could style it!

Trend Alert: Fall 2012 Trends

Hey Everyone!

I wanted to do a post about the new fall 2012 trends so that you guys could get a jump start on getting some trendy pieces worked into your wardrobe!

Here are some of the new trends for fall:

Rugged American

Basically what this means is to wear really cute camp wear almost. Loose, knit sweaters and plaid!

Jewel Tones

This means sapphire tones, ruby tones, emerald tones. Dark colors, but still colors.


Clothes that glimmer and shimmer. They have a sheen to them and a two toned look. They have two different materials on the clothing.

Textured Clothing

Clothes that have different textures going on.

Printed Pumps

I think that this is so cute. It will add so much to just a simple outfit.

Tux Pants

Pants that have a stripe running down the side of them, like a tuxedo

Graphic Print Sweater

Sweaters that have a lot going on and that are very busy - personally I think that this is so cute!

Daytime Clutch

Basically clutches are really meant for nighttime. Now, clutches during the day are really trendy.

Winter White

What this means is a white that isn't so bright. It's more of a cream white that's more appropriate for winter and fall.

Statement collars.

This is pretty much a clip on collar. It adds a lot of glam to just a regular old shirt.

I hope that you guys liked this post on the new up and coming trends for fall!

Hey Everyone!

So since it's summer, everyone wants that beachy hair look! The natural waves and the volume that the salty water give your hair.

With this recipe that I am about to give you, you can bring the beach right to your house!

All that you will need is:

2 cups of hot water
1 T salt
1 T coconut oil
1 T hair gel or conditioner (which ever one you have at home) (this part is also optional)

After you mix that all together, you are going to spray all over you wet hair and twist sections of your hair to have the product run through it. Let hair air dry and when its dry, you will have beachy hair!

Top 10 Most Played Songs on my iPod!

Hey Everyone!

I wanted to share with you my most listened to songs on my ipod, so that you could get an idea of some of my favorite songs and what type of music I listen too!

1) Here You Come Again : By Dolly Parton.  I have listened to this song 1843 times. The lyrics to this song are just perfection! They are so relatable to every girl as well!

2) Postcard from Paris : The Band Perry. I have listened to this song 1663 times. I love how preppy it is. I know that sounds so weird, but it's such a cute song!

3) Rack City : Tyga. This song is my party song. Whenever it comes on at a party, I just go crazy. I have listened to this song 1445 times. It's such a fun dance song.

4) Not Over You : Davin DeGraw. This is the perfect "trying to get over an ex" song. The lyrcis are so touching and inspiring and that's why I have listened to it 1292 times.

5) Boyfriend : Justin Bieber. I love how different this song is than anything he's ever done. I also love the beginning. I think that the beginning is literally the sexiest thing on this planet (besides Zac Efron of course). But I have listened to this song 1190 times.

6) Home : Phillip Phillips. Well if the song title doesn't pull you in, then I dont know what will. I love his voice and I love how humble this song is and I love the meaning behind the song as well. That's why I have listened to this song 972 times.

7) Pray for You : Jaron and the long road to love. Literally this is the perfect song for if you are going through a breakup and you are really pissed off about it. It has the funniest lines in it that are so true. That's why I have listened to it 626 times.

8) I don't want this night to end : Luke Bryan. I have recently become obsessed with him. I especially love this song. I think that it is so cute and I love love love the music video! I have listened to this song 454 times.

9) Jump then Fall : Taylor Swift. Anything Taylor Swift I love. I think that this song is so cute and what's funny is that I didn't like it the first time I heard it, but I quickly changed! I have listened to this song 347.

10) Fearless : Taylor Swift. Like I said above ^^ anything Taylor Swift I love. I think that it is just so so cute. I love how it truly shows how you feel when you first fall in love. I have listened to this song 300 times.

Now, I know what you might be thinking. "You don't listen to music that much." But I literally get a new favorite song every week, so that's why my top 10 songs on my ipod haven't been listened to that much.

I hope that you guys enjoyed this post!

Splurge or Save? Trends

Hey Everyone!

I am going to start, yet another series on my blog called "Splurge or Save". I thought that it would be a great way for me to give you my advice on weather you should splurge or save on certain items.

I thought I would start with trends. I am very leary on spending a ton of money on trendy items. I think if you want to splurge on a trendy item, then you go girl! I personally just don't think it's reasonable!

So instead of splurging, I choose to save. For trendy pieces I shop at Forever 21, H&M, Zara or Cotton On. These places are all quite cheap, but they are always up to date on all of the latest trends.

Now if you dont follow my "Trend Alert" series on here, then make sure that you go and read all my posts on that. I try to keep you guys updated on all of the newest trends that are out.

I hope that you guys like my new idea on this new series!

DIY Makeup Brush Cleanser!

Hey Everyone!

I wanted to share with you guys a recipe for a makeup brush cleanser that you can make at home!

All that you're going to need is:

1 tablespoon of white vinegar
1 cup of hot water
1 cup/bowl

You're going to mix the ingredients together, then soak your brushes for 20 mintues. After you let them have a nice soak, you want to rinse them in a hot then cold rinse, then pat dry.

I wanted to share with you guys this DIY because I feel like it's so important to clean your brushes (it prevents product build up and if your brushes are dirty, then they could potentialy clog your pores). Also, buying brush cleanser could really add up, so I think that it's great to be able to make your own!

Hope that you found this post helpful!

Happy brush cleaning!

Trend Alert: Miley Cyrus' Top Knot

Hey Everyone!

I wanted to do a new trend alert and that is on Miley Cyrus' top knot that she has been wearing a ton recently!

If you don't know what top knot I am talking about, here are some pictures of her sporting it:

I think that she rocks it! Weather she is wearing workout clothes or coture.

I think that you should try it! Let me know if you have tried it and what you think?



Books to Read: Along for the Ride

Hey Everyone!
So I'm doing a post on one of my favorite books. Along for the Ride, by Sarah Dessen.

This is what the back cover says:

"It's been so long since Auden slept at night. Ever since her parents divorce - or since the fighting started. Now she has the chance to spend a carefree summer with her dad and his new family in the charming beach town where they live. A job in a clothes boutique introduces Auden to the world of girls: their talk, their friendship, their crushes. She missed out on all that, too busy being the perfect daughter to her demanding mother. Then she meets Eli, an intriguing loner and a fellow insomniac who becomes her guide to the nocturnal world of the town. Together they embark on parallel quests: for Auden, to experience the carfree teenage life she's been denied; for Eli, to come to terms with the guilt he feels for the death of a friend."

I was addicted to this book the second I opened it. I read this in 7th grade and I read it over the course of about 4 days. It's about 300 pages as well. I love the story line as well. I also love how the author lets your imagination run wild with how the characters look like and how their voice would sound.

I really want you guys to read this book though! I hope that you guys do!
