Love Affair with Blazers

January 29, 2012 —


Lately, I've had the biggest obsession with blazers. I picked up a few at the Goodwill and a few at Forever 21. They're perfect for the New England weather we've been having. This blazer is from Forever 21 for $30. The jeans are from Hollister (they're the most comfortable jeans I've ever put on). My boots are from Rack Room Shoes. The tank under the blazer is from American Eagle's new Spring collection.

Artist of the Week: Bayside

January 28, 2012 —


If you haven't heard of Bayside, you should be thoroughly disappointed in yourself. Bayside, being one of my favorite bands, has amazing music. Some slow and some rock n' roll. Some of my favorite tracks are Winter, Megan, & Devotion and Desire. Hope you fall in love! Check out their MySpace and see if they'll be touring near you here!

Juicy Shades

It was finally time for me to get some new glasses. I am super excited about these new ones because they're absolutely adorable! And they're Juicy!




So, what do you think?!

Top 5 Beauty Products: Can't Live Without 'Em

January 25, 2012 —


There are a few more than five beauty products that I could not live without however, these are the most important five. 

First, my Dove Ultimate Go Fresh cucumber & green tea scented deodorant. I legitimately don't remember the last time I used a different deodorant. This is the only kind of deodorant that I've ever found that works. It also comes in a few other scents. You can buy these in packs of 6 at BJ's & Costco or any other warehouse club or they're about $5-$6 at your local drugstore. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Next on the list is my Victoria's Secret PINK Soft & Dreamy Hand & Body Cream. I think what makes this so different from other lotions is that exactly that. It's not a lotion, it's a CREAM causing it to be more thick and creamy. Soft & Dreamy is my favorite scent (it's Meringue and whipped cream, what could smell better?!) although there are tons of other scents. This was $12 at my local Victoria's Secret. They're normally is always some type of sale going on with them like 3/$30 or something. You can also pick these up at your local Bath & Body Works.

Clean Scene by Murad "Begging for Balance" Moisturizer Hydratant is the third item I cannot live without.  i received this on the trip to NYC for the Teen Vogue Fashion University. I saw Dr. Murad's seminar and he was kind enough to give each student a free acne-free kit. I use this after I shower/wash my face at night and in the morning. Not to mention the smell is divine. It's main ingredient is a berry from China that they call the yumberry (I know it sounds fake!). It's FILLED with antioxidants.You can purchase it at mycleanscene.com for $22. There's also one to be worn during the daytime that has sun protection as an ingredient.

Maybelline One by One Volum' Express Mascara in "Very Black" is my must-have mascara. I'm obsessed with it. It literally makes people stop and ask me if my lashes are real, and I proudly respond "Yes, they are!"

Covergirl Aquasmooth Foudation with SPF 15 is great for anyone with acne or any blemishes that they want to remove. This works perfectly to cover up anything you don't want to be shown!

Artist of the Week: Mac Miller

January 3, 2012 —


From the sweet rhymes to the funny looking but yet somehow amazingly attractive face, Mac Miller may be my dream man. The number of times Mac makes status-worthy lyrics blows my mind.

New Series: Jane by Design


Of course all of us fashion-obsessed peeps love a little something new that has anything to do with fashion. This is completely why Jane by Design may possibly be my new favorite show! First: The first episode was filled with drama, amazing clothing, and of course hot boys! Why can't Billy be my boyfriend? Anyways. It's highly recommended to you to check out Jane by Design. Tuesdays at 9PM EST on ABC Family!

Read Up: One Night that Changes Everything

 

The current "Read Up!" is a novel a good friend recommended called "One Night that Changes Everything" by Lauren Barnholdt.  

Although I just started the novel, I already cannot put it down.

It's the story of a teenage girl who has been writing in a diary for years. In this diary, she's been documenting all the things that she is afraid to do and things that she wishes she could do.

When the boy she has been crushing on finds this diary of hers, it's game over. She is being forced to do everything in the diary or else they will release to contents to the entire school.

Can't wait to see what happens next. (: 

Highly recommended.

Pretty Little New Season


For anyone who isn't a Pretty Little Liars fan out there, you need to rent the first couple seasons and then continue to watch the new season that started last night. 

And for all of you that watch Pretty Little Liars religiously as I do, I can't get over how in love with Aria & Ezra's relationship. Maybe it's because he's so damn good looking or maybe it's just because it's such a forbidden love. 

In last night's episode, the Pretty Little ladies tried to trick A and in turn ended up with a dropped cell phone which they soon find out belongs to A, the anon who has been following and torturing  them for months. Of course, this is where the episode ends. 

Cannot wait until next Monday. 8 PM, be there!

New Year, Welcome

January 1, 2012 —

First off, Happy 2012 everyone! I hope that everyone follows through with their resolutions and hasn't already broken them. It finally just hit me that this is going to be one of the biggest years of my life. I graduate high school and start college. I'm super excited, but extremely afraid at the same time!

I thought about making a New Years resolution about losing weight or having the perfect relationship, but instead my resolution is just to do whatever makes me happy. This year I'm making it my goal to just BE HAPPY and think about ME. I spend so much time trying to find the perfect relationship and trying to please other people, but this year is about me. I'm going to do fun things and meet new people. I want to have an amazing college experience. I want to take a million pictures and be able to look back and think that 2012 was the happiest year of my life. And hey, if I lose weight or happen to find the perfect relationship, that's always a plus, but if not, that's okay too. I'm going to be successful, happy, and free :)

xo, Kristen
