Naughty Not Nice - The Ultimate Fashion Show Challenge

Here's my second ever Polyvore creation & contest entry. Its getting hard to make it look.. nice. A lot of the things I've tried looked so sloppy. I am not a natural that's for sure.

Naughty Not Nice - The Ultimate Fashion Show Challenge                                                     

Pom Poms, Truffles & Patches

That's how I feel after all this Thanksgiving food!

Hello loves. This post will be 3 parts. I seen some things online I wanted to try & having a few days off, I did. One is decorations, one is a recipe, & the other is my Thanksgiving nail design. =] All of these things were really easy to do too. So if you like Oreo's, Nail Art or cute D.I.Y. decorations, go see after the break.

The Night Is Still Young - The Ultimate Fashion Show Challenge

Hello everyone! If you didn't know, I am obsessed with Victoria's Secret. Especially their PINK line. And a few days ago I seen the new PINK Polyvore Challenge. I have an account I never really used. But I thought I'd give this challenge a try. Not really expecting to win at all. But wanting to have fun with it. After the break I will share my first attempt at Polyvore ever, & my first entry for the contest. =]

Soul Food

I am sitting here listening to my iPod [iPodizzle as I like to call it], dancing in my chair. Just loving all the music that's come out lately. So I thought I could share my fave songs lately with you. Even better, the videos, [which I hardly watch now a days] but all these videos are just awesome in my opinion. So lets feed our souls & shake our asses! =]

Proof I Am A Makeup Idiot

Quick question. I found this picture. And I have no clue what it is/what it's for.. It just looks like craft glitter to me.. But being that it's by MAC I know its makeup.. but what the hell are people doing with this?! Someone tell me, because all I know is its so pretty! =] Oh and if you have pics of it being used that would be helpful too. Thanks!

Until next time,

I Want To Follow YOU!

Hey everyone. So here's the deal. I have a few blogs that I follow & enjoy very much. But I want MORE! Haha. Really, its been hard to find blogs by just searching, & going through comments & other peoples followed blogs so I was hoping you could help me. =]

I am looking for blogs that post at least partly about:
  • Hauls
  • Wishlist's
  • Handbags
  • Shoes
  • Victoria's Secret
  • Iron Fist
  • Nail Art
  • D.I.Y. Projects
  • Outfit of the day
  • Your personal wardrobe
  • Forever 21
  • Charlotte Russe
  • Hot Topic
  • Steve Madden
  • Mandees
  • American Eagle
  • Deux Lux
Of course, your blog doesn't have to be about ONE specific thing. A variety blog is perfectly fine. One kind of blog I really wouldn't be into is a blog ONLY about makeup. If your blog is a mix of makeup stuff & other things than please send me the link. But I am not really a makeup lover. I don't wear eye shadow, blush, lashes, lipstick, highlighter [whatever that is], etc. I wear concealer & foundation sometimes when needed & that's about it. I am a makeup idiot. Really. So blogs with a lot of makeup tutorials & info are like reading another language to me. The stuff is pretty & all but its not really me. I hope this isn't offending anyone because I don't mean it that way it just doesn't make sense to read a blog completely about something that isn't relevant to me. But if you sometimes post about makeup that's cool I wouldn't mind reading. Maybe you'll inspire me to try some =]

Also if this wasn't obvious already.. I need a blog I can actually read, if there are words. If your blog is more Tumblr-esque, & is mostly pictures with 2 sentences then any language is fine. Otherwise I need it to either be in English, or is in both your language & English.

So, if your blog is about any of the things I've listed, any stores similar to ones I've listed, about shopping in any store really, is in any way similar to any post I've done, or just something you think I would like PLEASE leave me a comment with a link to your blog so I can go check it out. I want more blogs to follow. If you happen to enjoy mine please follow, if not, no biggie. I would assume if our blogs are similar we would follow each other, but maybe not. Either way I will not hold your lack of a follow against you & not follow yours.

Now, who has a blog for me to check out?!

Please share!

Until next time,

Beyond Review

My shoes have arrived!! I ordered them from Beyond The Rack a while ago, and posted when I did order them. Now that they are here I am going to do a full review on the service from Beyond The Rack & the shoes themselves. I took the pics with a friends iPad 2 so they are much better quality than my own photos. =]

Piece of Haul

I tried to do a haul post. I have quite a few purchases I haven't shared due to the lack of a decent camera & horrible lighting in my room. But then it started to pile up so tonight I decided let me just do it anyway & even with all the lighting possible the pictures sucked! So horrible you can't see any detail what-so-ever. It is really just better to wait the next week & a half to get the better camera & then do it. But there were some things I took pictures of things that didn't come out too bad and/or don't need detailed photos. So I will share those few things with you so I have less to do when the real camera comes. =] I guess here's a tiny part of my haul.

Versace, For Me?!

Like most girls, I was looking at the Versace for H&M collection. I am not a actual fan of the normal Versace collection. I never really looked at any of their stuff really. Way out of price range, not really my style of clothes, & a lot of genuine skins are used as usual with most "high end designer" brands. But I got curious because I do like H&M. And surprisingly I found a few pieces I would buy if I had the dough for it. [Which at the moment, I don't.] But I will be okay! Anyway here's my Versace for H&M picks.

Looking At Me

So lately there's been a huge jump in my views! Mainly to the post In Love With An Iron Fist. They come from Google searches & keywords for the Iron Fist products. It was a LOT of views though! Here are some of the screen shots.

I Have A Heart, Do You?

This post is nothing I usually do. I am just seriously outraged & disgusted. PETA has informed me that Nestle, the company that produces Nestea, does disgusting, horrible animal tests & experiments for basically no good reason. They say they do it to show health benefits of their product. The law does not require any of these tests. US Regulators say these tests are proof of NOTHING. Basically these experiments hold no legal or regulatory standing or purpose. WTF are they being done for?!?!?! Please have a heart & read on.. I am offering a follow for people who help.

Forever Dreaming

So today was the "magical" 11-11-11. Where we all had I guess 3 chances to make our wishes.. On the day itself, & especially at 11:11 AM & PM. Did you use your wishes wisely? I only caught the 11:11 PM wish. Hope that's good enough =] Plus even better, its Friday!

So for tonight's post I am going to share my Forever 21 wishlist. I could go on a shopping spree in this place! I just placed an order for 1 item [Shocking! I deserve a prize for resisting. Really.] & I cannot wait til it gets here =] ]. Until it does I'll just dream of these fabulous finds..

Happy Not-So-Happy Monday!

Just For Shoe Lovers

I was supposed to do this post along with last night's but I got too tired. That post was way longer than I thought. For this post I am going to share with you these monthly membership shoe sites that have been popping up. I've signed up & went through them & this is just my basic review of each. Enjoy!

In Love With An Iron Fist ♥

Happy November! Or "NoShaveVember" for the guys..

So I had an urge today to come share with you a bunch of things, I might be doing 3 posts tonight, but first I will share with you one of my FAVORITE brands ever! I've already discussed I have a list of my top places to shop & this one is easily in the top 3 of my faves. So I am going to share this brand with you & show you why they are SO AMAZING!

Iron Fist 

This is the brand I am so in love with! For many reasons but let me just name a few.

First & best reason, they are completely VEGAN! 100%. All products. Not just a few, every single one. That alone counts as 10 reasons why to shop with them. Great fashion, no animal sacrifice. [Note: I said many times, I do not buy anything made with leather or any other animal skins]

Second, the designs are awesome. They are different from most brands I see, & are sure to make me stand out in a crowd.

Third, I hate to look like everyone else. Around where I live, its a sea of Aeropostale & UGGs. I rather be stared at for looking different from you, than be overlooked for looking just like you.

Fourth, they make clothes for men & women, so I can dress my love up in Iron Fist too.

Fifth, a little monster on my shoes makes me happy. =]

Today I was looking through the site & there are so many items on the site I wish I could purchase it is ridiculous. So I am going to share these items with you. This is my Iron Fist Wishlist.

This post is pic heavy, but worth it!!
