Styling A Striped Tee | Collab w/ Someone Like You

Hello lovelies! I have an exciting blog collab to share with y'all today. I've teamed with the lovely Lauren of Someone Like You to share how we both style a striped tee. Wanna know something crazy? Me and Lauren almost wore matching outfits, but I knew that she would wear an outfit like that for her post so I opted for a more BoHo look. I guess that comes with being a long time reader of her blog, since at least November of 2010 [though I feel like I might have discovered her a little sooner] when she was featured on Chictopia.

Amara Organics Trio Giveaway + Review

Hello everyone! 

For the past week I've been trying out a couple of products from Amara Organics: Total Repair Eye Gel and their Hyaluronic Acid Serum. So far, neither product has broken out my skin, or given me any allergic reaction. Of course, I would prefer to test out the products for at least a month [my personal preference when testing out skincare products] before giving a review and raving about them [or  perhaps not]. So instead I will give some quick little review thoughts on the two products before sharing the giveaway the company is hosting currently.

4 Ways I've Cosplayed the Marvel Fandom

Hello everyone! With the Avengers: Age of Ultron [2015] film coming out this Friday in the United States, I wanted to share with y'all ideas on how you can cosplay for the film. Last year when I went to go see Captain America: The Winter Soldier [2014] with a friend, I dressed up as Jemma Simmons from the television show: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D -- which was lots of fun. This year I'm planning on going as Skye, again from the television show: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. I would go as Peggy Carter, but I feel like I always dress up as her on a daily basis.

1. Agent Peggy Carter -- I have featured my take on Agent Carter's style and makeup look, several times on BF over the years. Two have been copies of looks from either the first Captain America film, or the television show: Agent Carter. My other one was an inspired look that I did for work last autumn.

Ulta Chic | Black & Lace

Hello lovelies! With the warmer weather that has somewhat come back to Indiana, I've been rocking my black skirts more often at work. Which is good, since my dress pants have become a very faded black after wearing them just about every work shift this past winter. Methinks I need to buy a new pair that don't look so faded, for this summer/autumn [I'm thinking a cropped pair would be fun].

What I Wore | Instagram Outfits for Spring!

Hello lovelies! I wanted to share with y'all today some of my outfit pictures that I've been sharing on Instagram this month [and on BF's Facebook Page], since I haven't had much time for photo-shoots this month so far. If you already follow me on either of those social media sites, I'm sorry for the repeats. Hopefully I will be able to get some non-iPhone/instagram outfit posts up within the coming weeks.

Photoplay Magazine, April 1940 | Magazine Monday

Hello everyone! Long time, no see. Unless of course, you follow me on FB or Instagram then you've seen me almost everyday with some outfit or beauty post. *grin* Anyhow, I knew I want to do a post this evening but an outfit post was out of the picture as it is a perfect wind tunnel where I live today. As I pondered what I to do, I saw that the Boyer girls had a vintage magazine link-up going on right now so I decided to link up with one of my many vintage magazines. Seriously, I own stacks upon stacks of magazines from the early 1900s-1960s/70s.

Lime Ricki Swimwear Review

Hello everyone! I have another Lime Ricki swimwear review to share with y'all today. I worked with them last summer, and they asked if I wanted to team up again this Spring. Of course, I said yes as they have some of the cutest swimsuits [that aren't all bikinis].

I don't know about you, but sometimes it is a struggle to find cute swimsuits in stores that aren't in a bikini style. Yes, I don't wear bikini and I never have, so I personally prefer one-pieces or tankini tops with either a skirt or shorts. But stores like to have their more modest swimsuits made out of the more ugly fabric, whilst the skimpy suits are in the fun and girly fabrics. Not fun. Unless you can track down some vintage style suits at Target sometimes, or you purchase your suit at Lands End or something.

What I like about Lime Ricki is that they carry a bunch of swimsuits that fit in with my personal swimsuit needs and taste. I adore a good one-piece swimsuit that has a vintage style twist: like the halter neck [love them on a swimsuit]. But enough talking about Lime Ricki, lets talk about the swimsuit I picked out for myself.

Who Inspires Me [Fashion & Beauty Wise] | Lisa Eldridge

I was thinking recently how I haven't done one of these posts in awhile, so I thought I would share with y'all someone who has taught me just about everything I know about applying makeup --makeup artist, Lisa Eldridge

But I don't just love her makeup work [she does the makeup for some of my favorite actresses and models], practical beauty tips, or her amazing rings that she always wears [fans of Lisa's videos understand]. I really enjoy her fashion sense too. It is the perfect mix of classic and girly funk. I love how she isn't afraid of anything [or so it seems]. She knows what works for her. Also, I may or may not have bought a magazine just for the article on Lisa Eldridge.

Money Saving Tips for Shopping at ULTA Beauty

So, if y'all don't know I work at ULTA, and since I've started working there I received questions about shopping at Ulta and such, that I thought I would create a post on ULTA and how to save money when shopping there. Now, all of these tips are ones I learned before EVEN starting to work there [which was the end of August in 2014], as I was always shopping there since discovering the store in the autumn of either 2012/2013. 

1. Signup for Ulta's Reward System -- It is free, you earn points for spending money there, and you receive specials rewards during your birthday month. [Just make sure to give your phone number when signing up, as it makes it much easier for us to search for you in the system when you don't have your card.]
