Fabulous (Iridescent) Find of the Week

Iridescent Oblong Ring from Forever21

This week's fabulous find is from Forever21. A few months ago I talked about this sparkling statement ring in a post about glittery jewelry. I originally saw this gorgeous ring on Forever21's website but did not buy it. Then while I was shopping at the mall the other day I found it in the store and bought it for only $3.80! This ring pairs nicely with a lot more than you might think. I've already worn it twice since I bought it two days ago. You can purchase this ring in size 6, 7, or 8 and in two colors, pink or ivory right here

3 Valentine's Day Looks Under $100 from H&M

I absolutely love the dressing room feature on H&M's website. It is such a great tool for me to use to share fun looks with you guys. I have shared a few outfits using this tool before but, today I decided to share three looks under $100 that would be perfect for Valentine's Day. 

School Day - from H&M

I love this look because it is so comfortable without being sloppy looking. The black skinny jeans are classy and super cute paired with a pink shirt and polka dot flats. The silver bracelets add a touch of sparkle and the denim vest adds interest and some edge. A messy bun and, smokey eye makeup, and nude lips add to this overall edgy look.

Girls' Night Out - from H&M


ShoesSuper Skinny Super Low
 This look would be perfect for a night out with your friends on Valentine's Day. The lace top is feminine and the dark wash skinny jeans are dressier than a pair of light wash ones. The flats are stylish and a more comfortable option than heels. The spiked necklace adds edge and the clutch is big enough to fit all your essentials without getting in the way of having fun. A messy bun and hot pink lips are fun and festive touches.

Dinner Date - from H&M


2-pack Tights 40 DenierPumpsDressBeltDenim

This outfit is more of a formal look but definitely not over the top. The black tights matched with black high heels will lengthen legs and slim you out. The color of the dress is the perfect hue for a Valentine's Day dinner. I added a skinny leopard print belt to highlight the waist and add a little bit of personality. The denim jacket will keep you warm and will also keep the look casual. Top it off with bouncy curls and red lips for a lovely V-Day dinner date look.

Favorite Fragrances

Hailey by AĆ©ropostale, Bombshell by Victoria's Secret Rollerball, PINK Sweet & Flirty Body Mist, and Bombshell  by Victoria's Secret Mini 
Having a signature scent is just as important as having a signature style. Here are three of my favorite and most worn fragrances.

This perfume has been one of my favorites since it made its debut in stores. I'm not a fan of overly fruity scents and I also dislike the smell of vanilla. This fragrance is perfect for me because its fresh, light, and feminine without being over the top. It's perfect for the Spring but, I wear it year-round. It's my signature scent and the one that I wear the most.

This is definitely the most flirty fragrance that I own. The scent of this perfume is sweet and a tad bit fruity. It's girly without being sickeningly fragrant. It's the only fruity smell that I enjoy. It would be great for a night out with your friends on Valentine's Day. Victoria's Secret has recently changed the design of their PINK Body Mist bottles but this scent does in fact still exist.

Bombshell by Victoria's Secret
This is my new favorite perfume. It's a bit darker than the scents I usually wear but I really like it. The Eau de Parfum is incredibly long lasting. I spritz on a bit in the morning and the smell is still vibrant at the end of the day. Plus, the packaging is super cute. In the photos above I am showing the mini and rollerball version of Bombshell. Bombshell Eau de Parfum would be a great fragrance for a night out. 

What are your favorite fragrances? Let me know in a comment or tweet me.


I'm feeling the love! 

In these photos I am wearing jeans by LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's, a top by Forever21 (similar), and a faux leather jacket by Dollhouse (similar). On my lips I am wearing lipstick by Wet N' Wild (in 522A Just Garnet) and lipgloss by Ulta (in Whisper).

Valentine's Day Nail Polish

In the spirit of Valentine's Day here are three of my favorite nail polishes in shades of red and pink. 

1. Love & Beauty by Forever21 (Red Glitter) - I couldn't find a name on this except for "Red". I bought this bottle a while ago and I have a feeling that it has been discontinued. But, Love & Beauty nail polishes in general are great and come in an awesome variety of colors. 

2. Maybelline Color Show (Born With It) - This shade is the perfect light, sheer pink for a French Manicure.

3. Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro (Stiletto Red) - My favorite red. This nail polish is super long lasting. I can usually get 5 or 6 days out of it without chipping. The bottle says it lasts for 10 days and I'm sure it could if I were more gentle with my nails (playing guitar usually takes a toll on them).

Fabulous Find(s) of the Week

Colorblocked Sheath Dress from Forever21

For some reason this body con dress from Forever21 just screams spring to me. The gorgeous light apricot shade is stunning. The nude panels on the sides and slimming shape of the dress will highlight your best features and give you a waist. For only $22.80 this a perfect to dress for Spring. Buy your very own right here.

Shirred Waist Dresses from Forever21

The dress above from Forever21 is only $24.80 and perfect for any occasion. It has a unique cut that makes styling a cinch. I'm predicting that we will be seeing a lot of lavender this season but you can never go wrong with a LBD. This dress would  flatter many body types and could be mixed in with many different pieces and accessories. You could totally make this dress your own whether you purchase it in lavender or black  Buy either of these dresses right here.
