Boredom Breeds Creativity
For my 22nd birthday my friends and I got a HUGE bottle of Jack Honey, one of my favorite drinks, to celebrate. Once the bottle was finished (a month later) I bedazzled it for decoration. This blingy bottle can stand alone or can be used to store things like loose change or to hold flowers. Get creative!
Beauty Bulletin: L’Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow
I love dramatic eye makeup, so naturally I fell in love when I tried L’Oreal’s Infallible 25 Hour Eye Shadow. This product is rich with pigment so you don’t need to use a lot at once and one container will last a long time. In this photo I’m wearing the color, “Amber Rush,” which is a glittery amber that goes great with strawberry blonde hair. I finished the look with a liquid eyeliner cat eye, bold lashes and a natural lip so the focus is on my eyes. This is a great product for summer nights when you want makeup that will shimmer in the dark.
Music Notes: New + Now Playing
Lately I’ve been missing music in my life, so I decided it’s time to get back in the dance studio and back on my music blog grind. I will be continuing my weekly blog post, “Monday Music Notes,” which I used to write for Her Campus Boston University as a student- only this time it’s just “Music Notes” and they will be more frequent!
To kick off the return of my music posts, here is a playlist of what I’ve been listening to lately (as usual, tune in on Spotify to see this playlist and others!):
Meetings n’ Stuff in NYC
Planning an outfit for a summer interview may seem challenging, but with a nice sleeveless blouse and a conservative-length pencil skirt you can still look professional in hot weather. Since I’ve been interviewing for positions in fashion PR, I decided to add flare to my otherwise conservative look with heeled French Connection sandals and my mint green purse from JustFab.
Noteworthy Look: Kylie Jenner
One of my fashion favs, Kylie Jenner, stepped out in Malibu last week wearing an amazing pair of over-the-knee Alice + Olivia boots. I love the pairing of a simple outfit with a killer pair of heels- very daring and bold, baby Jenner!
Noteworthy Look: Nina Dobrev
Nina Dobrev attended the Chanel couture show this week wearing the ever-popular suit style trend. Her outfit mixed the sophistication of a navy blue blazer with the sex appeal of a mini dress. Dobrev showed off her long legs and accented the look with a sleek top knot.
Trending: Suit Style
Over the past few months I’ve noticed suit-style ensembles trending in women’s fashion. The above celebs wore this trend in various ways, all sporting a plunging neckline to insert sexiness into their menswear-inspired looks. Black and white are classic colors for suit style, maintaining the elegance of a blazer with a solid simple color. Take cues from these celebs and wear this trend as a dress, a jumpsuit or simply wear a suit sans shirt!
