The Start of Fall Fashion

1  $16.13  |  2  $14.07  |  3  $6.20  |  4  $29.57  |  5  $15.14  |  6  $11.25  |  7  $6.04

Hey everyone! It's definitely been a while since I did a fashion wish list, and I thought it was about time to do one with the change of seasons!

I recently found this site rosegal.com that has BEAUTIFUL clothes, and a fabulous vintage section (they also have free worldwide shipping yay!). Now as fall approaches I love layering things, and one of my favorite things to layer with are sweaters. I was looking through the site and they have an amazing sweater section so I thought I'd show you two different ways how I would style a sweater using pieces from their site!

Inglot Haul | 20% Off


Hellooooooo everyone! So recently Inglot over here in Poland had a 20% off sale on their website, so naturally I had to jump on it! I've briefly touched on the subject before, but drugstore makeup is ridiculously overpriced here in Poland (more expensive than MAC back in California) and high end makeup is 1 1/2-2 times the price so Inglot is many times cheaper than buying the "drugstore" brands. 

And especially when they're having a sale I'm going to hop on that! I still had some birthday money left over (August 12! I turned 20) but the total didn't amount to very much at all! If you want to know some of the prices that I pay over here you can go online to inglot.pl and as a rule of thumb divide the prices by 3 to get $.

Just Girly Things


I'm bacckkkk with another fashion post! This one again is a bit dressier and prettier, but hey if you pay attention to details on my blog not only do I switch off between makeup and fashion posts, but within the fashion posts I alternate street style and fancier clothes!

Today I'm back with this GORGEOUS Lace and Coral dress by Quiz Clothing, which is a double layered body con perfect for spring/summer. I know that we're now going into fall, but I do know I have some readers on the other side of the equator going into spring! I know this doesn't match at all with the black wedges I've paired it with, but I do think to transition this it would look AMAZING with these black wedges, some sheer black tights, and a black blazer for any dressier events you may need to go to.

L'Oreal Lash Out Butterfly Mascara | Review


So first off as a little disclaimer, I bought mine at CVS which is why that's where it's linked, as it was on sale (buy one get one free or half off I think) but I'm not sure why now all the tubes say Voluminous Butterfly and mine says Lash Out Butterfly. Maybe just the packaging was changed to fit more with the L'Oreal Voluminous range as I've heard they discontinued their "Lash Out" mascaras.

ANYWAYS! I usually don't stray from my beloved Maybelline Colossal or Maybelline One By One Mascara for the top and some form of L'Oreal Telescopic for my bottom lashes (especially because they all come in waterproof and I have the wateriest eyes ever and also oily eyelids so my mascara tends to transfer) but I was browsing the sales as you do, and this one is so intriguing and there's that little voice that pops into your head and says "This can either go beautifully right or horrendously wrong. I MUST TRY IT!" So since it was on sale and I wanted a new infallible eyeshadow I went for it. Keep in mind this was back in July so I have had ample time to test this out (and maybe that's why the packaging has been changed by now)

Working Hard or Hardly Working?



Holy moly. I literally have no words for these shorts, they are so beautiful and perfect in every way I am actually in love with them. Seriously. They fit like a glove, are the perfect amount of destroyed and shredded, are the perfect length (no butt cheeks on display), and i keep getting complimented on them. "They're mine! You can't have them!"

Makeup Revolution Focus & Fix Eye Primer | Review + Dupe


Hello everyone! So obviously we all know and have either heard of or tried the brand Makeup Revolution by now (especially if you follow me on twitter). So at first I was sent a few items of theirs to test out, and then I went and made a HUGE purchase....and in that purchase was this little beauty! If you haven't heard of them they are basically a super affordable makeup brand with a huge variety of products, and hidden within those products are a LOT of dupes for very well known brands.

Black Beauty


Hey everyone! I know back home in California with schools starting up, that often means school dances! And I know many people go to big openings and events around this time of year which always calls for the purchase of a beautiful new dress! Let's be honest here, who doesn't want to buy a new dress when the occasion calls for it -insert emoji with girl sticking her hand out-

We're Just Not Working Out...


It's not me, it's definitely you. Some products just DO NOT work- no matter how many times you try and give them a chance, or how many ways you use them...you just CANNOT make them work!

I usually don't post negative reviews on my blog, but I don't want this to be a place of rainbows and sunshine and daisies either! Because there are DEFINITELY products that I absolutely hate- whether it's the formula, color, texture...whatever! I'm going to talk about them in these kinds of posts! 

I don't do monthly favorites/unfavorites because I physically don't have the money to constantly try new things often enough to do that, and when I find something good I stick with it! But now I do think I'm going to start doing these posts every so often when I've acquired things that REALLY stand out to me (good or bad) and do these posts! What do you guys think?

Kim-Oh-No!


Oops I did it again- white girl post to the max. But I don't even care because I am so ridiculously obsessed with this kimono....I know white girl problems. But I have been loving the kimono trend, I think even more than I love dresses. I love dresses for the simple reason that its a one-done deal. You can put on one item of clothing and you're good to go! But lets be honest (it may be just me) but you have to watch how you're sitting through the day, watch for strong breezes....etc. 

With Kimonos, you can have the most basic items underneath and then you put a kimono on and you automatically look SO extremely pulled together I'm dying over them. At first I was going to wear shorts with this (as usual), I love wearing kimonos and shorts in the summertime - especially long kimonos. But for this, I thought let's talk about transitioning them into more fall appropriate outfits by switching it up and throwing some leggings into the mix! I also think that some people aren't very comfortable wearing a kimono longer than what is underneath- so here's to you folks! This is for you too!

Makeup That Actually Helps Breakouts


We all break out, that's a widely known fact (and if you don't you are severely lucky or made a pact with the devil-who knows). BUT the last thing we want to do is exacerbate the problem, which 99% of the time is caused by wearing makeup!

So I'm always on the hunt for products that will help my face rather than harm it, I mean we wear makeup and suffocate our skin for 2-15 hours a day (that may sound extreme but I'm just basing this off my life...from going to get groceries or out to lunch up until my horrendously long hospital shifts) so why not put something on our skin that will help it in the long run?

Seems simple right? Surprisingly it isn't!!

Black, White, & Ombre


Hey everyone! Now that I have my photographer back (a.k.a. my little brother) I'm back to fashion posting!!!

First off, is this BEAUTIFUL Wal G London dress! Everyone who reads this blog knows my wardrobe consists of white, black, grey, flannel shirts, and jeans if that counts as blue so this dress is right up my alley. ALSO as a side note I re-ombred my hair (actually my bff Kayla did it for me- shout out hey Kails! She works in a hair salon, so she also gave me a trim, thank goodness I needed it so badly!) So of course, this dress is right up my alley!

Let's Get Naked // The Bathory


Que the new Lana Del Rey album, candles, dim lighting, and a nice warm delicious bath. Have I peaked your interests? Because that is definitely how I go about relaxing after a long week! Recently I was contacted by The Bathory* asking if I wanted to test out their line of personalized bath soaks, so of course I jumped at the chance!

Photo Vacation 2014 Part 3 // San Francisco


Hey everyone! Back with another installment of my vacation photos! Now I'm sure you know I'm Californian (just look a bit to the right on my blog) but when I was home I just took a day trip with my best friend Paula and we drove down to San Francisco in her fancy new car. (If you couldn't guess by the giant Golden Gate bridge staring at you in the picture above)

San Francisco is a 2-3 hour drive from Sacramento which is where my grandparents live and I went to high school so some of my best friends are in Sacramento, but I am from Southern California and my mom currently lives in Southern California just to clear things up. But due to my ties across the state I split up my time on vacation and travel literally all over the state #theresnoplacelikehome

Photo Vacation 2014 Part 2 // Hawaii



Hey everyone! Here is part two of my photo vacation posts, this time all about Hawaii! (If you haven't seen my first one about Vegas you can find it here) I was lucky enough to be able to go to Hawaii this summer because I attended a medical conference through UCSF for doctors (I get to go even though I'm not technically an MD yet because both of my parents are), and being smart doctors love to have their conferences in tropical vacation areas! 

So I would go to the conference from 6am-12pm and they would feed us breakfast and then I had the rest of the day free to do whatever I wanted with my mom.

I just wanted to say I think it's hilarious the food that they put out at medical conferences versus regular breakfast places. Downstairs in the hotel there was a breakfast buffet place with typical breakfast foods- pancakes, eggs, sausages, bacon, waffles, juices (probably from concentrates-yuck!)..you name it. But for the conference laid out beautifully was the biggest selection of fresh fruit ever, whole grain sprouted bread, an oatmeal bar with toppings like blueberries, raspberries etc. (I would just take a bowl and fill it up with the blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries and eat that!), and they also had hard boiled eggs, tea, coffee, and water. I mean I was in heaven with the breakfasts they gave us but I could definitely see some people weren't happy. Hey! They're giving you things to fit in with the healthy life style (most) doctors have, everyone should have been as grateful as I was! Especially because I hate breakfast food...I eat fruit almost every morning or granola with yogurt or milk (that was another option! the BEST tropical granola I've ever tried so naturally I asked them what brand and I brought some home with me) so the breakfast was perfect!

Sorry for that little story shoved in there, I just thought it was pretty funny.

These are all pictures of the Big Island (I've been to Maui before too, but this time we were just on this island). **photo heavy**
