How To Shop In BIG Stores

I'm talking about Forever 21, Ross, stores with rack after rack after rack of clothes, clothes, and more clothes. So how do you sift through all the stuff you don't want?

  1. Don't go somewhere you don't need to go. If you are on a mission for something in particular, don't look at anything else. If you are just shopping, stay in sections you might find something in. For example, in Forever 21, there are different sections, organized by style, if it's not your style, don't go there.
  2. Don't look at every single thing you pass. Skim through it all. If it doesn't catch your eye, it's not worth it.
  3. When you find something you like, and you think you might wear it, pick it up and try it on.  
  4. Most likely you are going to head to the dressing rooms with tons of clothes, but be picky, don't buy things that don't fit, don't buy everything that fits, think about what you will REALLY wear. It may seem cheap, but when you buy too much, it gets expensive FAST.
  5. When thinking about what to buy and what not to buy ask yourself these questions:
    1. Would you want to wear this tomorrow?
    2. The day after that?
    3. Do you absolutely LOVE it?
    4. Is there somewhere you can get it for less money?
    5. Is it out of your price range?
  6. ALWAYS check garments for any tears, stains, missing parts, etc. If it is noticeable, get another one. If it isn't very noticeable, ask for a discount. Usually they will give you one, it wont be huge, but it's something.
  7. Finally, you should feel GOOD about what you are buying, when you leave, if you don't feel good about your purchase, it wasn't a good  buy.
I hope these tips help!

Summer Makeup Galore

After a outing to Ulta (which, by the way, is a FABULOUS makeup and hair store. They have pretty much everything) the other day I realized that my knowledge of makeup and makeup trends is horrible. So I decided to brush up on the latest looks and now I'm going to share them with you.

This is a great look for the summer time, it highlights your natural beauty. Also, if you plan on going swimming, it wont smear as obviously. This look will go with everything, naturally.


Bold Lips
Bright makeup in general is big this summer, bold lips are an easy way to add flare to your everyday outfits. Wear them with very colorful outfits, or very simple ones to draw attention to the face.


Bright Eyes
This season, bright eyes will add a playful splash of color to your look. There are many ways to wear this trend, you can wear color blocking outfits, you can also do a very natural look other than the eyes to make them pop.


Smokey Eye
This summer the smokey eye in bronze is very popular. In bronze will go with almost anything, especially with a greek/italian renaissance look. Other colors of the smokey eye can work with outfits that have that color, for example, a green smokey eye for an outfit with some green, to make it pop out.

This season's makeup colors are either very bright or close to neutral. This summer, be adventurous, try something new. Be bright and bold this season, it's a bright thing to do.

I would like to give a shout out to Lauren for inspiring me to find the makeup lover inside.
