Summer Lookbook 2014

Hello loves! Today I am bringing you my Summer Lookbook for 2014! It was so much fun filming this lookbook for your guys and I really hope you enjoy it. Now I don't have any good photos so you guys will have to watch the video to find out what outfits I have come up with for the three events of the summer. I decided to just show you three outfits because I feel like these can be switched up to suit any event or outing. I love these staple pieces I have chosen and I hope you do too!

Mascara: Full N' Soft Maybelline waterproof mascara
Nars Casino Bronzer
Lipstick: Pure Zen by MAC
(Mik NYX Eyeshadow Pencil)

Outfit 1: Beach/Pool Outfit
Top: Marshalls
HW Shorts: Zara
Flipflops: Havanas
Bracelets: Surf Shops
Sunglasses: Forever 21
Tote: H&M

For this outfit I wanted to go for something fun and practical. I tied my hair in two braids and also put some white dots on my face (such a huge trend in Cochella and I just had to imitate it!).  I love highwaisted shorts as well and think they look super cute! If you wear them to the beach than they can easily be glammed up for a lunch/dinner date after! I also wore an anchor anklet (though it isn't shown) but I absolutely love wearing anklets in the summer! Like I mentioned, this outfit is perfect for the beach, pool, or a trip to an amusement park!

Outfit 2: Chilling With the Girls

Top: Zara 
Skirt: Macys 
Shoes: Dolce Vita
Necklaces: Forever 21 
Bag: Zara
Sunglasses: Forever 21

This is one of my most worn outfits!! I love maxi skirts in the summer because it gives you the option of wearing something flowly and breezly while still covering up your legs if you haven't shaved yet. (yes I base my clothes on whether or not my legs are decent to be seen haha). This is a super comfortable outfit that you can wear anywhere: the mall, movies, lunch, chilling with your friends. I also wore my hair up in a bun and show case my blonde streak. Everyone has been doing ombre but I've been thinking about doing something different. There will be more on that soon!

Outfit 3: Summer Date 

Dress: Marshalls
Shoes: Steve Madden
Earrings: Forever 21
Bracelets: H&M and Forever 21

The last outfit is super cute for a date whether it takes place day or night. I love these floral dresses, and you can get them super cheap at Marshalls or Forever 21. They can be worn with flats or wedges (I think wedges are a bit more casual and fun) and I love having my hair down with its natural curls. Its very carefree and relaxing. 

I hope you guys enjoyed this video! Please let me know which outfit is your favorite and where you would wear it to!!??

4 Easy + Fun Summer Hair Ideas!

Hello beautifuls! Today I want to show you guys some of my favorite ways to style my hair. My hair is about 5-6 inches below my shoulders so I consider it to be medium to long hair. Today I'll show you four easy and cute ways to style your hair. I hope you guys like it!

1. Messy Side Braid (regular 3-strand braid)
Pull hair to one side of the face. Begin to braid hair (fishtail, figure eight, 3/4/5 strand braids ect). 
Loosely pull braid until desired messiness is achieved. 

2. Faux Bob
Part hair into two sections and clip or pin ends of hair into roots. Do the same for the other side. 
And don't forget the hairspray!


3. Low Pony Tail
Pull hair into the base of the neck and tie with elastic. This can be achieve with a slick back/wet hair look or a messy pony. Take a small strand of the pony tail and wrap around the elastic.

4. Faux Crown Braid 
Take your bangs (or side hair) and begin to twist into rest of hair. Pin or clip at desired area.

Hot Pink Summer Lipstick Dupes!

Hey guys! Today I have my second Lipstick Dupe video!! I loved my Fall edition to this one (link will be below) so I decided to do a Summer edition that mostly concentrated on pink! I think Hot pink is very flirty, girly and suits any girl. It is also less intimidating then red or purple. I chose two of my favorite semi-highend lipsticks and compared to drugstore brands that had the exact formula (or at least close to it.)
 Mac is my favorite brand to buy lipstick from. I think their consistentency, pigmentation, and longevity is the best. I also think NARS lipstick are just as amazing but they are on the priceier side ($24 a pop while Mac is $16). 
NYX is a drugstore brand that has proven themselves to be very pigmented and long lasting. I absolutely love the creaminess of the lipsticks with a matte finish. Both of the lipsticks I chose are very similar to their higher end counter parts. Shocking pink by NYX is my favorite out of all of them. 
Let me know in the comments what lipstick is your favorite!?

Packing For a Weekend Trip: Beach Ed!

Hello loves! So I have a bit of news! iMovie has gone wacko and it is giving me such a hard time to edit movies! After a few seconds of editing it will close on me. The only thing it does with no problem is exporting (thank god). But now I spend hours (days even) trying to edit videos. So I really hope you guys know I how much I love you and appreciate the effort! 
If anyone knows how to fix this then please let me know. I recently updated my MacBook to the newest version of OSX Mavericks which I think is why iMovie is being stupid. 
But enough about that! Let's talk about the new video I have in store for you guys!
Today I have a How To Pack for a Weekend Beach Trip/ What I'm Packing to my Weekend Beach Trip video! In this video I will show you what I'll be bringing and wearing on my five day trip to the beach! Summer is here and most people either vacation in tropical places or live in tropical (hot) places like I do. So I wanted to show you guys what I will be wearing. 
    I hope you guys enjoy this! If you do please let me know with a comment below! Tell me what YOURE packing on your trip and let me know if any of you are vacationing or have gone on vacation recently. I don't get to often since I'm in school (sucks!) but I will live through you guys! 
Like I said, I am taking summer courses which isn't too bad since it's only two days a week. I do wish I could just be lazy and stay at home or go out and do fun things, but I think it's better if I just hurry up and finish school instead of procrastinating. I'm almost half way done in getting my BA! It's pretty exciting! I'll be transferring schools in the Fall so I'll let you know what I think of my new school (a University!) in a few months. 
Would you guys like to see a College Tips video or My College Experience video?? Let me know in the comments below! 
Well without further a do here's my video! I'm sorry if it's a bit long but it's impossible to shorten the video since I'm showing you guys what I'm bringing. Anyway, thanks so much for watching and I hope you subscribe so I can see you again in my next video!
Love you!

What I'm Wearing:
Dress: Nordstrom Rack
Nails: Mint Sorbet by Sally Hansen
