Simply Sunflowers

I know that my schedule is overpacked with school and work when I can't remember the last time I painted my friends' nails. Usually, if any one of my friends comes over to my house, I paint their nails. My friend Kelli here is obsessed with sunflowers (I am too, it's my favorite flower!), so when I asked her what she wanted on her nails today, she thought it'd be cute to put some little yellow sunflowers. I'm pretty happy with how they turned out, I've never attempted this kind of flower before.

Climate Confusion

If there's one thing I can't stand about spring in SoCal, it's the days where it is cold and overcast in the mornings, and the sunny and hot in the afternoons. Talk about a wardrobe dilemma! Throw in classes at school, where the air is usually blasting and I'm shivering in my seat, and it is impossible to dress and be comfortable. 

I experienced this the other day, when I had this super cute outfit in mind (the first set of pictures) but ended up throwing a sweater on before leaving the house. And then I finished off the day back in the first top and shorts! Cold, warm, hot... weather make up your mind!

Easter Nails

I must say, it feels like 2014 is flying by. I started my spring semester at school in January, celebrated Valentine's Day and went on a trip to San Diego in February, had my 21st birthday and celebrated 2 of my friend's birthdays in March, and now we're half way through April and this weekend is Easter! (And then next weekend is my boyfriend's birthday!) But anyways, here are my Easter inspired nails for you! I've seen this little hatching chick nail art design on Pinterest before, and it was relatively easy to replicate. You just need a thin brush polish like the white one I used here by Kiss Nail Art (got it at Target). The rest of the nails look like Easter eggs to me (:

Weekend Watermelon

Here is a typical lazy-weekend outfit for me. This week has been HOT here where I live, in the high 80's and low 90's! Feel's like summer! What's saying? "April showers"... none of that here! Anyways I love the look of an oversized tank either tucked in or tied in a knot with a cute bralette peeking out the sides. The color of this VS Pink tank reminds me of a watermelon (: I wore this out last Sunday when I was running some errands with my boyfriend, the perfect comfy and casual outfit.

Haul (4.10.14)

I come to you with a quick little haul today! I bought these items this past Sunday when my boyfriend and I were out running some errands.

1. Small Turquoise Purse: I have had my eye on this for quite a while now, just because it is so small and cute! You can tuck the cross body strap in for a handheld clutch or you can wear it long. I'll probably only be able to fit my phone, keys, cards/money, and a couple of make up products in here, but sometimes that's all you need!

2. Benefit BADgal Lash mascara: I have had a sample size of this for ages now, and I love the soft look it gives my eye lashes. I only use a coat or two, and it gives them a natural, wispy look. On days where I wear my Benefit They're Real mascara, I use BADgal on my lower lashes. 

3. I am almost completely out of my Nars Laguna bronzer, so I decided to try Dallas by Benefit next. Do any of you use this bronzer? What are your thoughts?

4. Insurgent: In my last post where I showed my movie outfit, I mentioned how obsessed I have become with the Divergent series. I finished reading the book in a week so I HAD to go and get the sequel! It'll probably be a while before I'm able to start this one, since I am now in the second half of the school year and I have homework piling up now, but I can't wait to read it!

Movie Date

This past Saturday night, I practically dragged my boyfriend to the movie theater with me because I had just finished reading the book Divergent and I HAD to see the movie. Like RIGHT NOW. I had bought the book back in December when I heard they were going to make a movie, because I prefer to read the book before I see the movie, not the other way around. But then school started and I now had textbooks to read instead, so I started reading Divergent this past week when I went on my Spring Break. And I finished it in less than a week. Seriosuly such a good book, in my opinion. I went out and bought the sequel right away, because I am hooked on the series and the characters and I have to know what comes next! You know have crazed everyone was over Twilight? That's me with Divergent (: Anyone else feel the same?

Fire and Ice

So I decided to try a new technique here with this nail art. I've done in the past a half moon manicure where the bottom oval shape is a different color than the rest of the nail, but I thought, "Why not make it like a french manicure and have no color on the bottom?" I'm not sure if I've seen this done before and I can't remember, or if I came up with it on my own haha. But either way I think it is a cool look (:
