I must admit, I am a tennis nut. I would play tennis 24/7, I love everything about it. So when I saw a Chanel tennis racket in Vogue, I had a moment. There was a specialty one, and it was the perfect balance of gold, white, and the logo... sigh.
Oh gosh. Chanel has put me in la-la land!

My tip is to make sure they are even by using the lower lash line technique. Also, start small. It is much easier to add more color then try to get it off without wiping off the erst of your look!

I am really excited to share with you my new modern take on the smokey eye! I actually incorporated a dark green instead of the black just to make it a little more edgy. This look can easily be toned down, so you can make it as dramatic or natural as you want.
I have some of my Mac eyeshadows de-potted, and Electra is one of them! I used a 239 brush to apply this all over the lid. I layered it a little to bring out the shimmer.
Thanks for reading, be sure to follow and comment on what your go-to smokey eye is! Also, I have to add a quick update on the product reviews. I promise, they will be up soon! I still need to figure out how I am going to organize them, but I am excited about it!
Love you all!

Okay, I have been obsessed with horseback riding clothing lately. Obviously you won't see me with the full helmet and jods, but some of the stuff is really cute! Back in the dinosaur age of this blog, I did a post on how I loved to knot the ends of a shirt with a cami under it to make it look more casual. Well, I have gone to the extremes, making my new favorite look a horseback riding shirt with the ends knotted!
Oh, and not to mention, you have an excuse to run with the polo look! Hello, Ralph Lauren.
This is so preppy! This is why I love horseback riding stuff, the polo's make it so easy to put a look together in minutes.
I hope you enjoyed my new favorite look, I feel like I change it up daily! Be sure to follow and tell me in the comments if you are loving this look. Thanks for reading!

So I saw an ad the other day for Clinique's chubby sticks and I am obsessed again. I feel like they came out last year, and sold out. Yeah, they were kind of popular. I just looked them up, and they got in 8 new shades. Cue the excitement. I will share the ones that ear on my to-buy list!
Here is the full lineup of them. Chubby sticks are like a super glossy lip balm with color. I love them because they are easier to put on then a matte, really pigmented lipstick. You don't have to be as careful with them.
Okay, I admit this looks a bit strange at first. But this purple is more of a sheer wash, and it is the perfect shade! I love using a purple gloss over a nude/pink lipstick, they work really well together.
Pudgy Peony is another one of the new Chubby Sticks that I love, plus the names are so cute! This is the perfect pink with a hint of plum in it, this shade almost takes on a rosy tint to it.
I hope you enjoyed my post on Chubby Sticks, I love them! Be sure to comment and tell me what your favorites are, thanks for reading!

. Thats what I all them, but they are really called Sally Hansen Salon Effect. And since these are my favorite nail products, I thought I would do a post just on them! They are very cools because they come in so many different patterns, from zebra print, red and black stripes, and pink polka dots. I got the pink and white polka dot one. It was actually my first time ever getting one of these and let me say they are amazing! They have many different sizes in the package so one of them will definetly fit your nails and they look profesionally done. I also love it because every single thing you need comes in the small package. It includes a wooden stick,(Ok, it seems random to have a wooden stick in your nail kit, but they are used to push back your cuticles and to smooth out the strips on your nails), a nail file (it's pink!) and then the strips that go on your nails.

1. GO SLOWELY!!! I cannot stress this enough. You can easily mess these up if you go too fast.
2. Make sure your nails are very clean before your begin. I suggest rubbing a little nail polish remouver over them just to get off everything.
3. Don't over stretch the strip when you put it on your nails. This just drags out the design, doen't make it look as neat, and the strip might break.

So, The next one is the Sally Hanson nail art pen (she makes great nail stuff). I own (and so does Perfectly Pink) it in pale pink. These work great, too, and they looks so cool on your nails. But there are a couple of issues. Sometimes it's really hard to get the paint to start coming out, and sometimes it comes out too much so you have giant blobs. But once you get the hang of it that doesn't happen. Also, after you apply it, let it dry and then put a clear coat over it. If you do not do this is rubs off VERY quickly.
OPI is my all time favorite nail polish company. They come up with the coolest collections and their nail polish is absolutely the best possible quality. This is just a great company and I highly suggest it.
Ok, so I do like Essie. It has some really cool colors. The only probl I have with them is that there colors are so sheer! Expecially the light pink ones(Which are gorgeus by the way)even after multiple coats you still get nail lines!! But they do have some vey pretty colors so I do get some of there things. I just do many layers.

I have a post that is a little different then usual today. Let's just say, if you have a challenge, I am willing to embrace it. Test out a new nail polish collection in a day? Easy. Curl my hair in five minutes? Done. My new plan is to have everything perfectly planned before summer, the time to fall apart again! Okay, kind of kidding on that one! But I am focusing on a new word: determination.
This is why I am going to try to turn the impossible into the possible: I am going to do a review on every single product in my beauty collection. They will be grouped by color and brand, and I am in this for the long run! If it takes me six months, then I am prepared, and I am going to do it! So this is why I am taking the beauty review challenge.
This is just a quick update on this, be prepared for makeup review madness! I will still do a ton of my normal posts, so tell me in the comments what you want to see more often. I am doing this to prove to myself I can do detailed reviews for reference, and for fun! You just have to love blogging.
Love you guys!

Remember me? I am so sorry for the lack of posts, I have been super busy lately, but now I am back! And I came with ah-mazing news, the mac summer collection is here! Okay, mac puts out interesting collections all year, but the winter and summer ones are always the best. I really want some things from these, so here is the Mac "Hey Sailor" Summer Collection!
Here is an all over view of the collection, I am so excited about it! Plus, they have a really interesting design for the packaging, it is this striped/metallic fabulousness! Yeah, I just made that a word if it isn't already.
Coral and orange bright lip colors anyone? I may have to get that bold orange in the middle, and the one next to that, and the one next to that... oh gosh, I need all of these! The summer collections always have a way of speaking straight to my wallet, telling it that one more eyeshadow will be okay. Note to self: Don't let the products go to your wallet. That's the problem with these, colors, who could turn them down!
So what are your favorite Mac collections? Are you obsessed with this one or any summer collections? Be sure to tell me in the comments, thanks for reading!

|You'll learn how to do this one in the first video,|
So heres the first video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=-MWqyGtzclQ
This one is probably this most impressive and craziest one, it just looks very hard to keep in place. But I must try this sometime...
Heres the second video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=AXRsJy9Rzdc#t=9s
This one is my favorite. It's so pretty when she makes the ribbons. It just doesn't look as good without the ribbons.
I hoped you liked this post! Please comment and tell me what you think!

So I decided that I really wanted to get curls like that. I asked some people and I found out that to get those "special" curls that you need to use a spiral curling iron. So today I went to Sally Beauty Supply (best store ever!) and I got one. Just for safety, I also got a heat protective glove, because you have to wrap your hair around the spirals. Or, you can just using it like a regular curling iron, and you will get spiral curls. They stay in better when you do it this way. When your wrap it around the curling iron your hair tends to look crimped after awhile. It's super easy to do by yourself, and it takes under 10 minutes. My only complaint, is that if you don't use hair spray the spirals will start to look like you crimped your hair.
So here is a super cute hairstyle that you can do with a sprial curling iron!
First, Put your hair in a low side pony tail, but on the side that the pony tail is not on, leave down a strand of hair in the front of your face to shape your face.
Then, curl your side pony tail. This will give it a more sophisticated look.
Finally, take the piece you left down a spiral curl it. This looks really cool because it just adds some pop to the hairstye. if you want you can bobby pin the back of it back so it's not in your face.
I hope you liked this post! Sorry, we haven't been posting as often,we will do our normal amount from now on!! We just have a really hectic week.

Today I am posting on a trend that has been around for a while, and it is maxi dresses. Maxi dresses are the really long dresses that have escalated into a huge trend over the last couple of years. I was still on my search for a casual dress that was above the knee, so I must say I was not too find of these when they first came out. Then, I found myself in Macy's staring at the display of bright, colorful dresses and I just couldn't help myself.
Long story short, I got an olive green one that was great when I wanted brighter accessories, and then one in turquoise. And that is where my story began.... I literally lived in those all summer. This was back in the day when I actually had a tan, and even though it came from ST. Tropez tanning lotion, it was still a tan! They were just so comfy and were so easy just to throw on in the morning with some strappy sandals, and I was good to go!
Tell me in the comments below what you think of maxi dresses, I will post an update this summer and tell you if I am still obsessed with these or not!
Thanks for reading!

Today I am going to tell you about this awesome new store I found out about yestarday. It's called Delias. They have the cutest clothing ever! I highly suggest going to their website and ordering a free catalog. Delias is great because they have super cute clothing, thats in style, unique, and there's something for everyone. So I thought I would show you some of my favorite items from there!
First is this adorable Ballerina Dress. It comes in many diferent patterns, and each one is super cute. This just shows that if you add a little something to a dress, it can go from casual to dressy in just minutes. Like for example the blue dress is very casual, but for the pink one they added some flowers on the front and so it's dressy.
Second is these cool lace shirts. Anyone who knows me knows that I absolutey love lace. Since these shirts are super see-through you must wear a cami under it, and it would look great if you put a different colored cami under the shirt to add some contrast. This shirt also comes in lime green, red, blue, and pink.
Then third, Delia's has this adorable bathing suit collection. This one is by far my favorite out of all of them. What I love is that with all of there collections you can get any pattern on any type of bathing suit. my favorite one is the first one.
I hope you liked this post!
