I cannot believe the holidays are already here! Time flies. I love this time of year… spending time with the family, overeating, and of course GIFTS. While it’s fun to receive them, my favorite part is to give them (I’ve been told I am a great gift giver!). I’ve put together a list of items that could make great prezzies for someone on your list. They’re all affordable and better yet– stylish! So click on the first picture, and go through the slideshow. Let me know which presents stood out to you in particular.
Whether you’re in high school or college, it’s that time of year again to go back-to-school. And who’s to say you can’t start off the school year with a bang?! Something that always makes me have a more positive approach to the upcoming school year is picking out the perfect bag to carry my books and homework. It is crucial to get something that is great quality, chic and comfortable because you will be using it everyday. You also want to get something that is not too pricey.
One of my very favorite ways to shop for bags is online. You can find some super cute ones that can dress up every outfit and make you stand out from the crowd. You want something that is unique. One of the worst situations is walking in on the first day and realizing a bunch of other girls have the same bag as you…
When you walk in on the first day of school you want to feel confident and know that you look fierce. In order to do that, you have to feel good about what you’re wearing. I always have a few regular backpacks that I rotate throughout the year. If I am not carrying a regular backpack, then I have a roomy purse, tote or cross body bag. I really like the idea of turning a regular bag into your school bag. I’ve even seen some DIY projects for embroidering on your bag and making it custom to you.

Q: What do I wear on the airplane?

The contest begins this Friday June 22 and the winner will be chosen Friday July 20. Good luck!
In first place was rosa-spiralingstar who chose a nautical bikini, celebrity style sunglasses, glam sandals and a cropped top for her beach look. I love that she thought to add sunscreen (an accessory just as important as the nail polish and charm bracelet she also added)!
In second was racheljay. I loved the bohemian feel her beach outfit gave off. A white maxi skirt, straw hat, floral suit and a nook all gave off signs of a great vacation!
In third place was sunnybunny09 who featured a bright ruched one-piece (a great eye-catcher), a tunic coverup, a wide-brimmed hat and a straw bag– now that’s what I call a classic look for a day at the beach!
Congrats to all of you ladies! For those of you who didn’t join this contest and want to be apart of the next Polyvore contest and get a chance to be featured on the blog, follow my group and wait to be notified when there’s a new contest
I don’t know about you but I’ve always been a huge fan of nail polishes and I can’t stop drooling over each and every color I lay my eyes on, however not all colors are appropriate for summer. Summer’s most popular shades seem to be divided into two color categories: orange/fuchsia hues and blue/green hues.
According to research made by the University of Oxford (yes they actually care about nail polishes!) the most popular red/fuchsia hues are the ones shown here: mulberry pink, salmon and tangerine orange. Also according to the University of Oxford each of these colors represents a feeling.
- Mulberry Pink= Happiness
- Salmon= Romance
- Tangerine= Energy.
Turquoise, blue-green and mint were picked by 1,900 women and girls of 20 to 30 years old with mint getting the first place by 987 votes. Each of these colors also represents a feeling:
- Mint= Calm
- Turquoise= Energy
- Blue-Green= Dreamy
Who knew that our nail polish shades can represent a particular feeling?
But what’s the shade of nail polish the majority of the women picked?? Red? Pink? Think again!
2,100 women picked orange as their fave color for summer marking it as the most popular color of the 21st century; It’s been picked by women for more than 4 years.
