Pretty Little Liars Fashion Inspirations ♥

A show that I'm literally obsessed with this summer would have to be Pretty Little Liars. Not only am I obsessed with the show, I love the clothes, accessories, hairstyles, makeup, and fashion. As you probably know, I love doing fun blog posts about these types of things. I just would like to share some pictures of the different styles of each of the characters. We've got preppy, edgy, girly, and simple! (:

































Tell me your thoughts on the styles and what shows you're hooked on this summer! (:

My Deva Curl Intro: Calling All Curls ♥

Hey everyone, so I'm back from my Papa's birthday and it was very fun! I wore my hair naturally curly most of the weekend, since I usually straighten it. I really want to give my hair a break for the summer from all the heat from my straightener, but I could never find the right product to tame my curls.

My second cousin was talking about Deva Curl, which is an exclusive store in NYC, that makes products only for curly hair. She actually has naturally curly hair, like me, and has used their products. She says they are a miracle and the leave-in conditioner really holds your curls all day long. I was really intrigued by everything she was saying, so I decided to log onto mydevacurl.com and just look at all their products. I am dying to order some to try out!
Although I don't have much to say in this post, since I haven't tried Deva Curl yet, I just wanted to let everyone know about it and how much it is interesting me.

Once I get some of the products and try them, I will definitely do a review!

♥ ♥ ♥

Until then, any thoughts? (:

Fashion Photo of the Day ♥

Mkay, so I was searching around the internet one day, looking at quotes, becoming quite bored, and I stumbled across this photo. Although it's not really a big deal, just a woman shopping, I really wanted to do a blog post about it. Ever feel that even the littlest thing can draw the greatest inspiration?





This is actually a poster I found and I absolutely loved it. What this photo makes me think about is back in the day when things were simpler. When I look at this, it makes me think of the past and how styles and shopping has evolved. What I love about this picture is the vivid colors, but it creates such a beautiful look. And who can resist all those shopping bags anyway? (:





What does this photo make you think about and feel? (:

Tag! When I Was...♥

Hey! This is another fun tag that I'm doing. I actually was thrilled to find out I got tagged by Chocokittyxx5 personally. Go check out her blog, Lipgloss can fix any problem.









But back to the tag. Basically, you try to remember most of your childhood throughout the years and everything you loved. Although it's a lot of typing, I love to look back and this should be so much fun! (:









♥ ♥ ♥


When I was really little, I used to love to go on errands with my mom. Grocery shopping, the bank, the laundromat, to her volleyball practices where she coached. You know, it's so funny because now I hate being dragged around. But, when I was little, it was one of the best things I looked forward to.



When I was going to Pre-school, I brought my best friend with me. We both had little backpacks. We stayed best friends until fifth grade. Although I still talk to her a little today, it's not the same. But through all those years, we did everything together and had the most amazing times!



When I was five, there were so many shows I was addicted to. Today, I'm addicted to Pretty Little Liars and Wipeout. Back then, I was addicted to Little Bear, Dora, Dragon Tales, Arthur, and Blue's Clues. Oh, those were the days.



When I was six, I was playing in the backyard with my best friends. We would pretend my swingset was a pirate ship. Sometimes, I would pretend I fell off it, and my dog was a shark. Then, my friends would have to save me. Best Game Ever.



When I was seven and eight years old, I think I was really interested in doing people's hair. I think when I did my sister's hair, she had trouble finding the ponytail after. I'm much better at it today(:



When I was ten, my cousin and I watched the Lizzie McGuire movie just like chocokittyxx5 had mentioned in her tag post. But, what my cousin and I did was make dance moves to every single song and performed them in front of our entire family. We thought we were amazing, although we weren't the best choreographers..



When I was eleven and twelve, I thought the most important thing was to fit in and be wanted at school. But now I know that's not true.



When I was thirteen I started figuring out who my true friends were and which ones weren't.



I'm fourteen now and a lot has changed. Someday I'll look back and say: "When I was 14.." But until then, I just want to live and learn with a smile(:


♥ ♥ ♥



Thank you for reading! I loved looking back on all these memories. Makes me sad, but makes me happy(: There are so much more.



Feel free to do this tag! I tag everyone and anyone! Just let me know in the comments or on Twitter (:

Look of the Day: Summer Evening ♥


















I call this the Summer Evening Look because I wore this going out to dinner and it was a really nice night. The tank top is a dark, floral print colored and then I just put on some dark-washed capris. I wore subtle makeup, but with this look you could put more on. I would wear just white flip-flops with it. I really like this outfit(:



Yes, I do have naturally curly hair and my hair doesn't look too good, it looked better in the morning, but it started raining just a little earlier, soo frizz city..(:



Thoughts? (:

Finding Our Butterfly ♥

I was up north this summer relaxing on the lake, enjoying the sunshine, and the slight wind through my curls. As I was walking under a tree, I noticed a caterpillar struggling to form its cocoon. I watched as it swung back and forth, spinning in circles and realized it was too small and not strong enough.



When I realized that, I realized something else. That caterpillar is just like me. Sometimes I'm too small and not strong enough. Whenever I have a dream to do something, there are other times when I say "I can't" or "I'm not good enough". And I thought to myself that maybe, just maybe, if that caterpillar makes it cocoon, I can accomplish something. I can smile and do something amazing.




So, I kept staring at the caterpillar swinging. And I looked a little closer, noticing a small, thin casing around it. And I realized it was one step closer to a cocoon. It had faith in itself that it could do something. And I think we all should.




We Will All Find Our Butterfly ♥

Outfit of the Day: Bold Yet Simple Summer Look ♥

Look of the Day ♥














What I like about this look is that it is so simple, but with bold colors. I paired a sort of army green tank with a gold necklace and simple ripped jean shorts. Although you can't see the shoes, I mostly wear black flip-flops with it. And if it is a little chilly out, you can pair this outfit with a simple, black jacket. Anything to add your own originality.





Shirt: Forever 21


Shorts: Abercrombie


Necklace: Forever 21

Bare Escentuals Make-up Haul ♥

So, as you know in my post down below, I went shopping about two days ago and one store I really got some great purchases from was Bare Escentuals Makeup. It was actually their grand opening day at the mall I was in. The store was super glossy, classy, and just plain cute. And they were giving out free mini pink cupcakes. And they were sparkly! But that's not what this post is about. I'm going to talk about all the products I got there.






All of these products I bought and now use. They are amazing and I strongly suggest these if you want a natural, but shimmery look that's great for your skin!
Me applying Bare Escentuals lip gloss in Princess. As you can see it gives my lips a full, pale pink, shimmery look. I think it is my favorite lip gloss at the moment and I seriously have it everywhere I go(:





And the finished product. Everything shown in the first picture, I have applied. As you can see, I didn't go overboard because I love the natural look. Although you can't really tell in the picture, I have mixed the different shimmery eyeshadows, so my look is a little more fun.







So, I strongly recommend Bare Escentuals. This brand is new, fun, shimmery, and natural!



*All photos in this post are my own





Products in this Haul



♥Bare Escentuals Flawless Definition Water-proof Mascara



♥Bare Escentuals Candy-Colored 2-pack Lip gloss



♥Bare Escentuals Lip gloss in Princess shimmer

And I Stumbled Upon Some Designer Stores..♥

Yesterday I went shopping for hours on end and the mall I was in, had a connecting mall containing a ton of designer stores! It was like "Mall Heaven". Besides the fact I couldn't shop in them since I'm 14 years old, do not have a job, and can't really afford a three thousand dollar jacket. Oh and besides the fact I need to gain some pounds and gain some height. But besides all that, I thought it was fun to look inside them and discover all the beautiful and dazzling styles.

♥ ♥ ♥


I'd love to share some pictures I took of my favorite stores that I spotted.
Burberry


Okay, so I know MAC isn't a designer store, it's a makeup brand, but I couldn't resist. The inside was all classy and cute. The Bare Escentuals store was just like it, and I bought makeup there so I might do a blog post over that in the future...

Gucci
Juicy Couture



Saks Fifth Avenue

Louis Vuitton

♥ ♥ ♥

So, these stores are the only ones I caught glimpse of in the "high-class" portion of the mall. I know not all the designers are shown, but it was fun looking in these ones :)

What are your thoughts? (:

Memories ♥

Memories come in all styles. There are some memories that make you smile, some that make you cry.

I was riding in the car one day just thinking. I was thinking about life and everything that comes along with it. I was also thinking about how different things were than when I was little. When I was younger, I was more carefree. I didn't worry as much. As long as I was with my family and had my little stuffed dog. Now, there's a lot more things to stress about and a lot of things I want. But when I look back on it, I can't help but miss it terribly. And I wish one day I could travel back to when everything was easier.


Life is a rough biography. Memories smooth out the edges. ♥

Confessions of a Shopaholic Fashion Inspirations ♥

Not only do I love this movie, I love the styles! ♥
