Fall Mini Skirts For Badass Babes

Saturday, October 22, 2016

The leaves are changing and I love it! No signs of me missing LA. I love the change of seasons because it gives me an excuse to hit the refresh button. Instead of complaining about things, I always want to find a solution and way to make it better. I love to give myself a concrete goal that is defined as much as possible. I'm working on commitment- more to the things that I commit to than to people. I am not a relationship kind of gal and I like to keep it that way. Failure is a habit and I consider breaking commitment a form of failure. Lately I have been in limbo and moved into a new apartment, broke up with someone, working nonstop, lots of excuses I know. So when I commit to something I want to be able to see it through. The reason I haven't been able to follow through lately is because of things like my new apartment being far from the train, for example. I ended up bailing out of a show because of how long it would take / I didn't give myself enough time. Since my goal is commitment, the steps I will need to take is basically to weed out the excuses that I make so that I can fully commit to my decisions and passions. 

Furry black crop top from Urban Outfitters (I also have this one from American Apparel), Zara fringe mini skirt (similar here), Adidas sneakers, Necessary Clothing choker. I also love this leopard one ($7!) 

It's now a little chilly so I would have to wear this outfit with a jacket. But I love mini skirts for fall. Like this lace up one is sooo sexy I need it! This distressed dark denim is one that I would wear casually in the day. And this one with the studs would look so cute for a girls night out with thigh high boots.

Burgundy Bralet

Lace High Neck Bra in “Berry” ($14- on sale! Comes in other colors), Vintage Levi’s Denim from Melrose Trading in LA (similar here), Adidas Super Star

This is my favorite outfit combo: cropped top (in this case a berry beautiful bra), jeans, and Adidas! I love the burgundy color for fall and think this is a great addition to add to your bra drawer, plus it’s on sale super cheap. Be bold and wear it as a top with a moto jacket over it, or under a comfy sweater as the temperature drops. The jeans and Adidas speak for themselves…wardrobe staple! I’d style this outfit differently to dress it up by adding black boots
Also, you may notice a gigantic 8 foot tall bookshelf behind me. That is because it exists. And you can get it at IKEA, and if you are living in NYC and need to flex a bedroom this works as a great room divider. It is pretty long (you can’t see the end of it in this picture) and offers limitless options for storage. You can get cloth bins or install drawers like I did. I’m going to play around with the overall balance and display of it, but for now I’m amazed at how much organization it has added! I’ll do a whole post on my new apartment with organization and design tips from yours truly.

Crushing on Chloe

Sunday, March 13, 2016

I've been wanting to splurge and buy a Chloe "Faye" bag for a while now. The design is striking and timeless. It definitely represents my style with it's feminine features and gorgeous color options. I stopped in Barney's yesterday to stalk down my dream bag- i found it in mustard yellow which is fun for spring and timeless black. But I had my eyes and heart set on this oh-so gorgeous tan version.

The "Drew" bag is also another option that I've seen on style blogger's Instagram feeds. It comes in so many beautiful variations: this python and blush // black and pink // and adorable giraffe

I can't wait to bring home a new Chloe bag for spring! Which one is your favorite? 

Graceful Gowns For Spring

Tuesday, March 8, 2016

Brandy Melville Moto Jacket (similar here). BCBG gown (similar here!), Topshop heels. Love X Style X Life book.  

Being inside the Bradbury building reminded me of something out of Harry Potter. It was the perfect setting to shoot graceful and classic gowns for spring! I love adding a jean jacket or motorcycle jacket over something dressy to tone it down and make it wearable. 

A coffee table favorite that is full of beautiful inspiration is Love, Style, Life By: Garance Dore. I've seen it on other blogger's Instagram feeds so naturally had to check it out! I love anything with French influence, and Garance Dore has French flair down to a t.

Tarte Is Your New Best Friend! #MakeupGoals

Saturday, March 5, 2016

Tarte Amazonian clay eye palette, "Slenderizer" contour brush. 

Is it just me or is Tarte cosmetics on an absolute roll right now?! I want everything that they make, #makeupgoals. The company has become a social media obsession amongst other makeup and beauty lovers (please tell me you're following their Instagram) and their effort to interact with customers is what really stands out. I'm currently at an event and saw their newest foundation pop up on my Instagram feed and I was like "all right that's it, time to report to Boys and Bombshells troops!"

It's easy to fall in love with  Tarte... I mean have you seen the packaging?! Ugh so important. But beyond beautiful cases and palettes that are something out of a dream, the product itself is ah-mazing. I can testify to their Amazonian Clay eyeshadow palette that I use literally every day. I also rave in almost every blog post about their Braziliance tanning lotion that is the only product I use for self tanner. It doesn't smell weird and it makes me so dark!

(images Tarte Cosmetics Instagram)
"Rainforest of The Sea" foundation ($39 ), "Amazonian Clay"foundation ($39) I have this and love it! Use this brush ($32)to apply it for flawless finish. **New "Double Duty Beauty" gel based foundation ($39- only available at Ulta!), "Maracuja Creaseless Concealer" ($24). 

It's no secret I am a freak about foundation. In my opinion I think it is what makes your makeup look professional or amateur. The one question I ask makeup artists when I'm getting my makeup done for shoots or on set is "What foundation do you use on your clients?" Tate has options when it comes to getting your flawless skin and I can't wait to try the new "Double Duty Beauty" gel based concealer. If you have tried it already, please tell us what you think in the comments!

"Amazonian Clay" matte eyeshadow palette ($45 ), "In Bloom" eyeshadow palette ($45 ). "Classic Courage" eye and cheek palette ($28 ), "Rainforest of the Sea" eyeshadow palette ($34 ), "Tartiest Contour" palette ($54 ). 

Now for the fun part, palettes! Tarte delivers pigmented, beautiful, and wearable palettes that will become your staple for making each makeup look unique. I have the Amazonian Clay palette and use it for daytime looks... next I want to purchase the Contour palette and In Bloom palette. 

"Tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paint" ($20 ), "Lipsurgence" lip gloss ($19), 

The lip paint collection is raved about on Instagram and is a beauty blogger favorite. Beautiful shades and super kissable. One of the things that I notice that really affects how my pictures turn out for shoots is lip color, so I only invest in the best! 

Happy shopping Bombshells! Make sure to comment with your favorite Tarte product below :) 

You Don't Have To Show Skin For A Night Out

Monday, February 29, 2016

Location: Downtown Los Angeles, CA. 
Outfit details: Brandy Melville leather jacket (similar here, here), Zara beige shell crop top (similar), Anthropologie knit color blocked skirt (love this option), Topshop heels (bestseller right here.)  

Sometimes a little bit of mystery is the sexiest approach you can take. Whether you are going on a Tinder date or just hitting the town with your girls, it's fun to switch up those cleavage bearing dresses in lieu of a more sophisticated and blasé look. 

I visited Sally Hershberger salon and saw the amazingly talented colorist, Bianca, before heading out. She added highlights and a gloss to my hair so it would be all shiny and vibrant! I definitely recommend getting a hair gloss done once a month in salon! I'm due for another. 

I also used Tarte Braziliance tanning lotion which is a staple for me! It doesn't smell all funky and the color is instant and dark, plus it comes out brown not orange. 

Since spring is right around the corner it's time to whip out those peep toed sandals and show off your tootsies. I love these Zimmerman heels, the color is so soft and feminine which is perfect for spring!  Or you can opt for the best-selling Steve Madden pair which I think just about everybody owns. 

Find the perfect night out skirt by assessing you can add to your wardrobe (or work with what you already have.) This pencil skirt is versatile for work and still curve hugging enough for a night out.

2 Ingredient Hydrating Mask for Sunday Spa Day

Sunday, February 28, 2016

Sunday's are always my spa day! This hydrating mask uses only two ingredients and is all natural. I got the recipe from "Homemade Beauty" which you should totally grab so you can steal her all safe beauty recipes.

1 tsp. of extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp. honey

Stir the ingredients together in a small bowl until it forms a tacky paste. Pat the mix onto damp skin. Leave on for 10 minutes and then rinse with water. Voila! Skin is instantly hydrated and plumped.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and stay tuned for more bombshell posts.
