New Obsession: Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain

revlon

If you saw my OOTD, you know that I went shopping today and, let me tell you, I now officially have a new obsession. For my birthday in January I got a Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain in the color Desire and I really love it. I think it might be dried out though because it does not really show up on my lips and when I first opened it I thought: ‘how do I get this to come out?’ because it was just so dried out! And today assured me that it is definitely dried out. I bought the colors Crave and Gothic. As soon as I got in the car I put it on and it stayed on through lunch and a trip to Joann’s Fabrics and until I got home-WOAH. The color is insanely bright and super saturated. I have always had trouble finding a lipstick because my lips get dried out so easily that my lipstick gets dry and flaky minutes after I apply it. This lip stain comes with a chapstick on one end and the stain is super moisturizing. I really just love it and I am a little worried that I might never wear lipstick again. I will talk more about it in my haul video which I will probably post at the end of the weekend because I am going to be shopping pretty much all weekend and most likely on Monday too because I do not have school! So, look out for that and thank you guys so much for reading!

My Favorite Spring Collections

I CANNOT DECIDE! I am torn between two collections this season and I cannot pick my favorite. Although the two stores I’ve chosen were a bit unexpected for me, and I should actually have chosen H&M (H&M=life), Forever21 and Urban Outfitters have to be my favorite. Gosh, I feel like I am cheating on H&M. So, here’s my defense…

Forever21’s collection consists of “sheer colors”. The color of each garment can be found somewhere on the bright neon rainbow. The clothes are made of a light and, as expected, sheer chiffon material. They did a lot with layering this season, as every photo in the lookbook involves intricate layers. The creative brains at Forever21 worked hard this season to come up with new ways of wearing everyday clothing, like the wrap (which I believe is a shirt-but I could totally be completely wrong) around the hips of the model sporting the look “fade out”. Also, her head wrap is unusually thick and looks almost like a shirt, which is definitely not the type of headpiece spring usually sees. The jewelry and shoes are easily representative of this collection, as they also include every neon color in existence.

Urban Outfitters’s collection has such a 1950s feel which I absolutely love. They have such retro sunglasses in the prettiest colors. These are definitely my favorite. Their jewelry is dripping in jewels of all sizes and colors. Gorgeous. They kind of remind me of a castle or a king of some sort. They have a vast variety of different styles of shoes. A must have is the classic peach polka dot heels. The collections holds so many different styles. It has 1950s style heels but also carries blue cowboy booties and sneakers. The dresses in this collection have high scoop necks which will flatter any figure. The dresses and shorts have such a feminine fit which is an excellent quality in the spring. Perfect for picnics! Going along with this same unbelievable theme, the shorts are all high waisted and embellished with little polka dots or lace. The jeans in the collection come in classic spring pastels and prints but are all high waisted which adds that 50s feel that I was talking about. The collection also embraces the rocker style, incorporating oversized khaki and military jackets. This part of the collection does not appeal to me too much but I just died when I saw the rest of it (literally I screamed and teared up a bit) so I just had to include it in my favorites. I will definitely be purchasing most of, if not the entire, collection.

Thanks for reading! If you know of a spring 2013 collection that is better than these, please let me know!! I love looking at all the different ways stores do seasons. Don’t forget to check out my YouTube channel!

Newest Addiction: Pose

20130205-184649.jpg
I have recently discovered a new social networking website for fashion and I am in absolute love with it! Pose is a website very similar to Pinterest, in terms of layout. It has the same layout as Pinterest and you can ‘love’ posts and share them. In addition, Pose also allows you to create “collections” which are similar to boards. You can upload your own pictures, or poses, and put them into these collections, or you can add other poses, from your feed, to the collections. Unlike Pinterest, when you post a pose you can click on different items in your picture and choose from the wide variety of articles of clothing and stores to inform viewers of what you are wearing. Then, when your pose is uploaded and on other people’s feeds, they can hover over an piece of your outfit and find out where to buy it. Sooo convenient, right?

This site is super easy to set up and kind of really fun. When you set up your Pose, you take a quiz about what kind of style you enjoy or what you are looking to see on Pose. Then, the website will follow people for you and they show up on your feed each time you sign on. The outfit ideas go on forever!

The site is also a fantastic networking site. I just set mine up a couple weeks ago so this is not the case for me, but all of the people I follow have more than 100,000 followers. So, I need to frequent my posts and fill it with more content. But, once I do that, I am sure to have many followers. Totally get a Pose, if you have not already, I promise it will be worth it.
