Chi Chi Kassidy Dress*
Hey everyone! Today I'm talking about THE most gorgeous dress I own! It's from Chi Chi (which I'm sure you're all familiar with and is so beautiful it needed this many pictures in the blog post I swear!

I am SO happy that I was sent this dress because I think it is a really classic piece that you can wear to any special occasion, especially with prom or end of the year formals coming up or whatever you need to wear a nice dress to this one is perfect! Since it's black with white beading, you can really style and accessorize it any way you want, but I chose to just stick with the classic theme pairing it with black heels, a black velvet hair bow, and no accessories to keep the focus on the beaded part of the dress (although I did switch up a classic red lip with a bright tangerine lip that's on trend for spring!)

Going Green: Lip Version

Hey everyone! Today I wanted to talk about the cutest and coolest etsy shop I found called good4you who sells plant based makeup and skincare! If you have read any of my posts or tweets, you'll know that recently I've been trying to get into more plant based makeup and skincare etc.

I was thinking, you wear makeup or your skincare products all day long; why would you want to bathe your face in those chemicals for the whole day that you wear makeup and then when you wash your makeup off, you're putting those chemicals back on with your skincare products and sleep in them all night long. So I've been trying to detox my body, eat better, and put more natural products on my face and body!

Layering 101 with Courtney (from As We Stumble Along)

Hey everyone! I'm Courtney-I'm an 18 year old personal style blogger in the Midwest,who's addicted to thrift shopping..and jellyfish.(they're awesome,okay?!). As a beginning blogger,connections are so important. Stephanie was my first real blogging friend,and she offered me the chance to write a post for her blog!(: So here I am today,my post for the day-I hope you like it!(:

So one of my major things for fashion is layering. I loveeee layering! I have a whole different post dedicated to it,and pretty much all my outfits are centered around it. Living in Iowa,two things are evident-a)the winter is very,VERY cold, and bb)the weather flip flops like no other. (in the last two weeks it has been both 80 AND 40 degrees) So layering is ESSENTIAL! But contrary to what you might think,it's not just for the winter! 60 was the high today,but temps varied from times of day and my different classrooms,so I decided on this layered outfit. Here's the 3 steps to it-

Cocoa Brown Tan | Review

Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan* / Cocoa Brown Lovely Legs* / Cocoa Brown Tanning Mitt*
 Hey everyone! Today I'm reviewing the much buzzed about, and raved about tan around: Cocoa Brown! (Okay that unintentionally rhymed…call me Dr. Seuss?) But anyways I have seen SO MANY people rave about this tan, that I tweeted them asking if they worked with bloggers outside of the UK/IRE and they do! They were so nice to send me over a few of their favorites to try…and now they've got me hooked.

Usually I'm not one to be bothered to self tan. It usually rubs off when I workout, which is daily to every other day and intensive workouts 1-2 times a week, so putting on fake tan that just comes off with my sweat and leaves me patchy and looking like I have alligator skin is a no go for me.

But you know, (for the sake of blogging I swear!) I had to try this one out. Curiosity got the better of me and I have a feeling this is the only tanning line I will ever use forever. And that's quite a hefty statement to make. After giving this a good go I've fallen so in love with it that I can't imagine trying another tan besides this one.

Okay on to the review part!

Inglot Palette Giveaway! [International / Closed]

Hey everyone! Today I'm here with some VERY exciting news! I'm giving away an Inglot palette (quad)! As Inglot is a Polish company and I'm currently attending medical school in Poland (and I'm currently obsessed with Inglot) I thought it would only be fitting to give something away from Inglot! I know Inglot is available in other countries but it is FAR cheaper in Poland so it was also something that I can afford by missing a few meals, instead of not eating for a month! And it's such good quality I like this brand so much more than most others. I have never tried a bad product from them.

I've recently reached a HUGE milestone in my blog, I hit 3,300 followers on bloglovin, and 1,200 on twitter! I meant to do this giveaway at 3,000 followers but the number climbed so quickly, before I could get this giveaway posted I was already at 3,300! (I've been busy with school and tests so I haven't had time to sit down and write a good post!)

Tigi Smoothing Lusterizer | Review

Tigi S Factor Smoothing Lusterizer*
Hey everyone! Today I am here to review a hair product! Gasp! I know…I never really review hair products because nothing  ever really seems to fit the bill. For my hair type, i have wavy to curly dry hair that tangles the second after I comb it out. The hair dressers complain that it takes longer to detangle my hair than to cut it! It's also pretty long, which doesn't help the tangle factor (hits the middle of my back when I leave it in all it's curly glory, so longer if i straighten it…which it definitely is not a fan of. Yes I talk about my hair like it has a mind of it's own because I swear it does)

beautyuk CC Cream | Review

beautyuk CC Cream £4.99*
Hello everyone! As you all know I have received quite a few new (amazing) products from the lovely ladies at beautyuk to try, today I'm going to review their CC Cream* for you! Especially since spring/summer is hitting and a lot of people have been asking for good bb/cc creams.

I have currently been ADORING the beautyuk CC Cream* because it is SUPER thin, thinner than my moisturizer and makes my skin just look flawless. It has such good coverage, more coverage than a lot of my foundations. I'm not sure if it's because it's color correcting or just because they managed to make it really pigmented while being super thin and weightless on your skin.
