SnapShot Sundays. Vintage 70's Wrap Skirt from Surcees

 If you've read any of my other Snapshot Sunday's posts then you know that I am obsessed with my local vintage store called Surcees and this post shows off a cute wrap skirt I found there. (Actually I found 3 but I only bought 1... I think I'm going to go back and get another one). I love wearing skirts, preferably long ones because they are so comfortable ( haven't you heard that maxi skirts are like crotchless yoga pants?). It is also pretty windy where I live and short skirts are a disaster waiting to happen...I'm not fond of flashing strangers my goods, ya know? :) So I stick to what I like best and its a nice long skirt!

                                                             Here's how wore it:

The skirt wraps around your body and ties in the back. I had no issue with this skirt falling down or coming untied. once I tied it, it stayed put all day.

Wet n Wild Limited Edition Spring 2014 8 Pan Palette in Walking the Red Carpet

 After an agonizing drive around town in search for the limited edition Wet n Wild walking the red carpet 8 pan palette from their new spring collection I finally found it ( 5 drugstores later) for around $4.99 at Walgreens. Needless to say I was beyond excited and I got there just in time because they only had 1 left so I had to snatch it up.

                                      Wet n Wild, Walking the Red Carpet Swatches 

(top to bottom)
Browbone shade~ A pale pink matte that on my skin looks a little peachy/white
Eyelid shade~ A beige semi matte
Crease shade~ A warm taupe with a satin finish
Definer shade~ A dark brown matte with tiny traces of bronze glitter ( once used the glitter appears to be on the surface and the underlying color looks more of a matte dark brown)

(top to bottom)
Browbone shade~ A frosty white
Eyelid shade~ A gold shimmer with gold sparkle flecks. This color can be somewhat sheer. I have found that using your finger and packing this color onto your lid helps intensify the gold.
Crease shade~ A very pretty copper/bronze shimmer
Definer shade~ A semi matte milk chocolate brown with gold sparkle.

Once again Wet n Wild has hit the mark with the wonderful pigmentation on these shadows. Like I stated earlier the gold shade is somewhat sheer but it can be built up to make a beautiful golden glow on the eyelids. All of the shades in the Walking the Red Carpet palette are super smooth and blend easily. I have a feeling, I am going to be using this palette a lot this summer. I mean, who doesn't want to look like a bronze goddess all summer long? Right? :)

  Were you able to get you hands on the new Wet n Wild spring 2014 collection?

Here is what I wore:

I love this crochet top. It is so comfortable and the neutral color means I can wear any color I want under it and it wont look strange. 

I'm pretty sure I out grew the bow in your hair stage at oh, i don't know, the age of 4 but my hair was annoying and this bow was way too cute not to buy! 

The face I'm making in this shot is horrible. haha :)

                                                         Where to get it:

  • Mint Tank: Forever XXI
  • Crochet shirt: Old, purchased last year at Ross( this one from Urban Outfitters is similar)
  • Capri Pants: Very old from Wet Seal.( I would like to buy these ones)
  • Wedges: Old from Charlotte Russe, they do have these out this year that are cute.
  • Heart Earrings: Forever XXI

Wet N Wild Color Icon Trio in Silent Treatment

I have been on a roll with the Wet n Wild  posts lately. What can I say, all of the shadows I've tried have been amazing! With that said, another set of shadows I've been loving is the Silent Treatment trio! These 3 little shadows are extremely pigmented and last all day on your lids. Oh, and this trio runs you $2.99 USD and if you're lucky most drugstores run buy one get one 50% off sales on Wet n Wild all the time so, you can get another trio for around $1.50 USD.

Eyelid shade~ A beautiful purple/grey based taupe with a satin finish
Crease shade~ Cool tone matte deep brown, this shade does have some fall out.
Browbone shade~ A light shimmery shade with a pink champagne tone

Swatched from bottom to top. Eyelid, Crease, Browbone

This trio should be easy to get your hands on. It is part of their regular line and is sold at many drugstores and mas retailers like Wal-mart.

             What do you think of the Wet n Wild Silent Treatment trio? Would you wear it?

March 2014 Favorites

Today's post are my favorite beauty, accessories and fashion picks for the month of March. All of these things I have been wearing a lot during this month and I wanted to share them with you. :)

                                                      BEAUTY FAVORITES:

Nyx Blush in angel~ This blush gives the perfect neutral flush to the cheeks
Mac Cremesheen Lipstick in Morning Rose~ This has been a favorite ever since I bought it! It is a great no brainer, throw on and go lipstick! For swatches see my post HERE
Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette~ So many looks can come from this little palette! For swatches check out my review HERE 
                                                   ACCESSORY FAVORITES:

My boyfriend gave me this watch at the end of December as a birthday present and I have been wearing it a ton since then, especially this month. The weather has been off and on between nice warm days and cold days so I have been able to show off this cute little Michael Kors watch on the warmer days. If you read my Snap
shot Sunday's posts then you have probably seen this watch. Its in pretty much every post.
                                                         FASHION FAVORITES:

Leggings!!! I have been obsessed with leggings and long shirts all month long! My 3 favorite ones are my solid fleece lined black leggings on the colder days, my brown leggings for when I get bored of black and my cosmic leggings to add a little pizazz to my legs. :)

So there you have it, my March favorites! Lets see if I'm still using and wearing the same stuff for April.
What are you favorites?
