I read in a magazine today that Snooki is over leopard, cause she is now a “grown up”. I LOL-ed in the line at the pharmacy & then I jumped for joy.
Why?? Cause good ole’ Snooks was single handedly ruining leopard print for people everywhere. She was walking & living proof that there is such thing as too too much.
Newsflash people– you can be an adult & still wear leopard, just as long as you aren’t taking fashion advice from the ladies Jersey Shore.
GET LE LOOK:
+ leopard silk pajama shirt (thrift score!!)- similar.
+ black calf hair slingbacks- i.e. my favorite shoes ever!
+ my all time fave black leggings.
+ black turban.
+ super oversized cat-eye sunnies in tortoise- similar.
+ studded bangle & gold open stud cuff.
+ eyeball ring // initial midi ring // dainty gold ring // black stone + gold ring- similar.
+ my current nail fave- this grey polish.
++ Is it weird I kind of look forward to rocking leopard at 80? I am hoping to be just like Iris Apfel at that age. ++
++ I can’t deal w/ her cuteness<3<3<3 ++
Big news people- I got my first facial peel on Friday!!!!
OMG. can I just say… coolest.thing.ever. I am shedding like a snake, & as odd as it is- I am obsessed.
I opted for the Vi Peel cause it seemed like the least painful & dramatic, plus it had epic reviews. Not gonna lie, in the beginning of the application process it had a bit of a sting to it, but the first swipe had some pain numbing stuff in it, so after that it was smooth sailing.
The first two days my skin was SUPER taut, & then day three (today)- BOOM, peel city. Literally, skin falling off my face- which actually isn’t nearly as gross as it sounds, especially since you can start to see how bomb my skin underneath is looking. Personally, I got it to help me with some old picking scars, & I can already tell they are looking less noticeable + my skin tone looks amazing + I can even notice some fine lines are fading as well.
Do I reccomend? So far- absolutely. I can’t wait for the final result & a new set of skin ;).
++ vintage Vogue covers ++
++ my new fave hair tool- the GHD Flat Iron from the ‘gem collection’!!! Stay tuned- I will be sharing why this is the best flat iron ever very soon. ++
++ obsessed w/ anything illustrated- including this adorable sneeze card from my sis (who is always LOLing at my silent sneezing) ++
++ Sunday the boyfriend & I took a day-cay to Julian to get some authentic apple pie- TO-DIE-FOR!!. ++
As you can probably tell from reading this blog– shopping is kind of my thing.
So, I made a deal with myself a while back… each time I go shopping, I have to get rid of something (or multiple things- depending on how much I bought).
Example- if I buy a new pair of boots, it’s time to get rid of an old pair I haven’t worn in a while. It’s the only way that I can somewhat justify my spending habits…
Which brings me to my new BFF- Tradesy. The most genius site-invention ever (you know, one of those things where you say to yourself “Wow, I wish I thought of that!”).
You can check out more about the whole Tradesy buying/selling process here- it’s so easy it’s ridic.
Now, I’d like to cordially invite all of you to shop my Tradesy closet!! Some of my favorite things you will find in my store currently are: a crushed velvet mini skirt, a holographic tote, these insane wedges, a double slit floral maxi skirt, a sexy & chic blue silk maxi dress (w/ pockets!!!), adorable crochet overalls, & an epic eagle statement necklace.
Enjoy & happy shopping!
Remember the show ‘Cribs’ on MTV?
Not gonna lie, I kind of loved that show. Yes, it was incredibly cheesy & you know that’s not how anyone’s fridge is normally stocked… but I have just always been intrigued seeing inside other people’s homes.
Which actually sounded way more creepy than I expected. Don’t worry- I am no peeping Tom (or Tanya??)!!! I just think you can tell a lot about person by the space they live in, & I think that’s pretty cool. Don’t you agree?
Unfortunately, MTV isn’t banging at my door to crash my Crib, so the best I can do is share with you some of the favorite things I have gotten for my place so far!! Enjoy & Happy Friday.
