Arts & Crafts Time

While cleaning up under my bead I found some old arts and crafts stuff like a Klutz paper fashion kit. So I decided to make a paper dress (anything to avoid cleaning the mess under my bed) and this is what it turned out looking like. I ended up putting mine in a picture frame and I've found it's a great edition to my room.

July Favorites

These are my favourite beauty products of the month. I like watching these types of videos on YouTube so I thought I'd make a blog version.

This eyeshadow pallet that I got sent when I ordered a subscription from 17 magazine has been something that I use quite often. I especially love the colour that has the big dent in it, it's a beautiful gold bronze colour that is perfect summer.

This is the brush for Maybelline's Falsies Volum' Express mascara in the water proof formula which has been great for summer. I also really like the colour of the packaging. 

This Essie nail polish called Turquoise and Caicos is definitely talked about a lot and I see why. It's a beautiful colour! Paired with this Aziza clear polish for a base and top coat it lasts for a good week without needing to change it.
In the background of this picture is Joico's Daily Care Conditioning Shampoo which I only just discovered this month and I'm glad I did 'cause it makes my hair look and feel good.

These two peach coloured/flavoured products have been my favourite lip products for the month of July. On the left Maybelline's Shine Sensational lip gloss in Peach Sorbet and on the left Revlon's lip butter in Peach Parfait. They are both natural colours but give your lips just the right amount of colour.

Great Apps

This is a screen shot of some of my favourite apps this month. Not the most original ones ever but they're great none the less. 
I love the Sephora app 'cause it's great to take screen shots of products you want to check out in the store, GifBoom is an app where you can make your own Gifs, it's amazing and very entertaining, and Instagram is great for creating really unique looking pictures. YouTube and Checklists are sort of boring but they're really simple and practical apps. Temple Run is not practical at all but it's just a whole lot of fun.

Pretty Petal Pedi

I got my first pedi! Is that really weird that I've never gotten one until now? Well any way, I love it! I got the purplish blue colour by China Glaze and my friend got a glitter polish on top of a pink polish both by O.P.I. I think flower detailing on our big toes looks amazing. Conclusion: I see many pedis in my future.

Demi Lovato Concert & Dip Dye Inspiration

A couple of weeks ago I went to a Demi Lovato concert. She came onstage and my first thought was "oh my goodness her hair is awesome". I think it's so cool and am now thinking about dip dying my hair. Not as much hair probably just the very very ends and I was thinking about a lilac. Overall it was an amazing concert!

Coral Pants & Instagram

These American Eagle jeggings caught my attention right away, how could the not they're the brightest pants ever. I adore the coral colour because its perfect for summer but I can't wear them because it's so hot outside, so I plan on returning them. They don't suit fall at all, the colour is almost anti fall. If I find similar pants next spring I'll pick up a pair but for now it's good bye to the coral pants.

Flowers & A Pink Manicure

These are pictures of my friends manicure from 4 months ago that I finally decided to post. I love the flower, it reminds me of Hawaii and those tropical patterned tops (if that makes sense). I don't know the name of the polish but it's O.P.I and I think it's the perfect manicure for Summer.

Fall Style

This is my inspiration board for Fall style. It's sad to think about jackets and school in the summer but I thought I'd be prepared for when Fall comes around.

Statement Earrings!

I was inspired to purchase these earrings at Forever 21 because of an article in Teen Vogue's March 2012 issue about statement earrings. These aren't huge statement earrings but I think they're good enough and I love the colour! Some other semi statement earrings I have that I think fit the trend are feather earrings and blue diamond studs (fake obviously). I like this trend because like neon (which has been in for a long time) it will be around for a while.

Lovely Lips

These are some new and some older lip products I've been eyeing lately. I've also been looking at a lot of reviews and these all seem like lovely products!

Worth Every Penny

This is Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in the shade Zero. I found that it does glide on easily which makes it easy to apply. The colour is also very intense which is great because you don't have to keep going back and re-applying the product. It also claims to be waterproof which seems to be true because I couldn't even get this off with makeup remover, I have to wait a few days while it faded before it came off! Overall it's definitely a great product and worth the price of $23!

Not So Much Love

This makeup remover by Nars isn't something I'd purchase in full size. Although it definitely wasn't oily it didn't remove all of my eye makeup. To be honest I'm pretty sure it hardly took of any of it because for two days it looked like I was still wearing eyeliner. I guess the eyeliner was awesome but not so much the makeup remover

Feather Earring Inspiration

I purchased these feather earrings at Sea Jewels. I love them because they're really simple and because I've been looking for a cheep pair of feather earrings for a while. Here's some of my inspiration.

YSL Mascara Review

This YSL volume mascara was given to me as a tester. I fell in love with the golden box but the love sort of ended there. This mascara definitely does not give a false lash effect. I'd say it makes your lashes look longer but in away so that it looks natural which is fine, but not what it claims to do at all. I'd say the Maybelline's Falsies has more of an effect than this and the Maybelline one is $10 while the full size YSL mascara is $30!
