Shop The Look: Primadonna

Hey guys! For those of you who were searching for the shirtdress that Marina wears when she walks around the chandeliers in her music video for Primadonna here is a similar dresses! I think what she wore was vintage because I can't find it anywhere! If anyone finds something even MORE similar comment below! :)

I saw this dress in Macys, in a very pastel pink kind of color, extremely similar to the one she wore. Unfortunetly they didn't have that color online!

Splendor By Anna Godbersen

Splendor by Anna Godbersen
Okay, everyone who is reading along with me the Luxe Series must be highly disappointed! If you are not then please tell me what in the world was the point to this book if the characters didn't even end up together in the end! Seriously! I was rooting for Henry and Diana since the beginning. This book has shocked me, bored me, and left me speechless (sometimes in a bad way). But I never stopped reading because I just had to know what the end results were going to be. Let me tell you that Anna really threw me in a loop in this book. I was soooo upset by the end that I regretted wasting my money and time to buy these books. I'm so sorry for anyone who went and bought these books and was as disappointed as I was. I truly am, I had no idea that this was going to be a twist right at the very end when happy endings are suppose to happen! Come on Anna, you can get away with messing with the relationships in the second even third book but the final book! Just fix them up again! Why couldn't you give us a bone to mull over the perfect, romantic relationship these two (Henry and Di) individuals had! I love being wrapped up in a fantasy and I just felt that this book really brought you down to something worse than reality. Well, at least this is the end and I wont have to suffer any longer! 
Now that I've finished my rant on how mad I got when I finished that last chapter!
On to real fantasy with dragons and magic! I know that will NEVER disappoint!

Your Beauty Comes From Within

Society today is too concerned with what you look like on the outside, as if that is the most important thing in the world. They forget that sometimes the most beautifulest people are also the most physcotic even the most disturbed. They have distorted the image of beauty for ALL the girls in the world. 
We must put an end to this miserable conception of beauty that you have to have big boobs, big butt, skinny waist, perfect hair, perfect face, flawless makeup ect ect.
It's really harmful for everyone. The girls because they strive to that image.
The guys because they are sadly disappointed. 
Nurture your inner beauty and the characteristics that make you YOU! 
Love yourself and people will notice. Trust me! It's better to be the best you then to try and compete with the special effects of a computer.

For everyone that just read my little inspirational speech thank you!! I just had to let you know what I thought. And now we can move on to little beauty buys I bought this past weekend. Enjoy!

Hand Sanitizer- Bath and Body Works
Hand cream- Marshalls

Here's a cute idea! I made a little lipstick holder from a glass jar and hot pink ribbon. It's adorable and perfect to hold atleast 11 lipsticks!

My new lipstick (obsession!) 
Girl About Town- MAC

BEAUTY TIP: If you bring in 6 used items from MAC you can choose a lipstick for free! :D

Inspiration Of The Day: Lana Del Rey

Lana finally made it big here in the US and she's looking beautiful in this puffy skirt!
Her music is so unique and different! She got me into Indie/pop though I'm not sure if that's the genre she's in but I still pay tribute to her for opening up my ears to better music! :D

She Stands Out In A Crowd

Here's a little OOTD for you guys! I adore this red dress from Nordstrom! It fits me perfectly and the color suits me! I added my nude Steve Madden pumps and a turquoise stone necklace. If you are as brave as I am then you love contrasting colors together! These are such beautiful colors and so vibrant. 
This is also the first time I use my iron to curl my hair since I cut it and I noticed how short it is!! 
The curls were extra curly and bouncy!! Loved it! :) 

I also wanted to show you guys a little gift I wrapped. I love giving pretty wrapping paper!

Spring and Summer Trip Essentials

I actually found this on facebook (I don't own or take credit for this collection and this photo.) I thought it was so cute and loved it since I'm the type of person to pack real light and just take off on a trip! I hope you guys find it helpful! I'll make a list at the bottom of essentials I believe should be in there!
Very Picture Heavy!

For a spontaneous trip on a spring week! Here's what you need to keep looking stylish:
Remember this is my own idea list and doesn't really go with the picture above. 
You can also add or take out anything you don't need or have! 
Have Fun!

*A Pair of cute shorts! (I prefer some jean shorts for the beach
 and some nice colored shorts to go out)

*A Few loose Tanks/Tunics (Tribal print, florals, lace, or basic)
*A Spring/Summer Dress ( A nice pop of color and don't forget the belt!)

*A Cute cover up and swimsuit! 
*Flip flops (You don't have to wear the plain old rubber flip flops,
go for those nice sandals that are still resistant to water and sand!)

* A Pair of Wedges (These are so Spring/Summer worthy!)
*A nice basic cardigan or jacket to match with all your dresses
and tanks.

*Bring a small spring oriented clutch for those nights out!
*A super cute tote to put it all in!

Added this peach/pink colored blazer for a complete look. I also worethe arrowhead collar necklace, small diamon earrings and my charm bracelet that isn't featured in the pictures. For the first time ever I borrowed my sister's Sam Edelman studded pumps! They are fabulous!!
