Apologies again for the prolonged hiatus!  But we’ll only be gone for a little bit longer(: We’re working on new posts, and guest bloggers for our relaunch, and we’ll hope that you’ll stick with us until then! 

But while we’re gone, feel free to fill our message box with ideas, suggestions, and requests! 


October’s here and it’s finally starting to feel like fall! Most of my fall wardrobe is going to be classic pieces that I have had in my closet for the past year or two, but these are a couple things that I want to add to my list of stables for my favorite season!

1. Combat boots - I’m on the hunt for an affordable pair since I can’t wear these shoes year round, I think I’ve found a pair here and hopefully I can order them soon! I love the look of them, and that you can wear them with jeans, tights, dresses, and just about anything else you can think of! 

2. Utility jacket - While I was in New York a couple weeks ago I saw a girl wearing a similar jacket and I fell in love with the way it looked. Paired with combat boots, shorts and a loose white T everything about her effort just looked effortless but still put together, not messy. I love that it cinches at the waist, and the one that I ordered has a hood for rainy days! I’m just waiting for it to come in the mail, here’s the link to get the one that I got! -click-

3. Wrap around belt - I’m not sure where I can get this yet, but I’m on the hunt for a super long belt that I can wrap around my waist twice! I want to pair it with dresses over tights, and to cinch in the waist of my cardigans and jackets. I think it gives the outfit a whole different look, with just that minor detail. Any suggestions on where I can find one?

4. Naked Palette -I’m over a year late with this trend, but I’ve been eyeing this palette ever since it came out. I just couldn’t justify purchasing it when I had so many similar colors at home already. I think this month I’m going to spoil myself a bit and gift this item to myself, I know I’ll get a lot of use out of it. You can get it here


A Brief Post on Epilators

Epilators look like electric razors, but they are actually tweezers. I got one off eBay for a few dollars. (I wasn’t sure if I would like it yet, so I thought it would be a safer investment to buy a cheaper model.) [Go to eBay and search “Emjoi epilator” then sort it by lowest to highest price. You’ll see that epilators start as low as $1. Of course, the price will increase as people bid on it, but it’s still very cheap.]

They have a big range of prices. Some are very affordable and some are quite expensive. Well it turns out, I do like it very much. I think it’s time for me to upgrade to a better model since I’ve practically stopped using my razors now.

PROS:

  • Since it plucks the hair out rather than shaving it at the surface, it takes a much longer time for it to grow back out. That means you don’t have to shave on a daily/few times a week basis.
  • Cheaper (in the long run). Think about all the money you’ll save if you don’t have to keep buying razors!
  • Underarm skin looks lighter, because it pulls out all the hairs so you don’t have little dark dots from those stubborn hairs that are too close to the skin to shave off.
  • Lasts a long time, and you don’t need to replace the parts. All you have to do is keep it clean and it’ll last for ages!

CONS:

  • May be painful for those with low pain tolerance. (When I first tried it, I thought it would be extremely painful, but it actually didn’t hurt at all.) 
  • Can cause temporary swelling and redness in the area used.
  • A little more time consuming than shaving. It takes a few minutes of running over the area to get all the hairs removed. It’s not as convenient as a quick shave, but epilating definitely lasts longer than shaving.

TIPS:

  • Pull your skin taut so it does not get caught in the epilator! It doesn’t hurt that much, but it’ll come as shock to you.
  • Moisturize your skin after epilating.

Hi guys, sorry for the lack of posts!

Sylvia and I have been quite busy lately. I’m a senior now, so I’ve been busy with SAT related stuff and applying for colleges. (So nervous ;~;)

I would like to post more often, but I’m running short on ideas. Any suggestions would be helpful! If you want us to do a certain tutorial or post, send us a message. The more suggestions, the more posts we can do. :)

And I’ve also gotten a few messages regarding this post. A lot of people asked where they can get cabochons for these crafts. I get all of mine from Sophie & Toffee. And I have a 10% off coupon code here. :)

That’s about it for now. Hope to get some suggestions from you guys!



Travel Diaries: Helpful Packing Tips

There are a couple trips that are marked on my calendar for the next couple of months, so I thought I’d compile a short series with a bunch of helpful tips and tricks for when it comes to packing for, enjoying, and planning your next vacation. 

Well, lets get started!

1. When it comes to packing clothes, I’m guilty of ALWAYS over packing. So here is something that I’ve learned to minimize the excess clothing: Pack in outfits, one for each day of the trip, one backup outfit, and one semiformal outfit. 

2. A day or two before I leave, I like to try on each outfit that I’ve packed for the trip and take pictures of each one on my phone using a full length mirror. I make sure to include all of the accessories and shoes. It helps me to make sure each outfit looks the way that I want, and helps me ensure that I’ve packed everything I need for each day. 

3. I like to ‘compartmentalize’ in my suitcase and my carry on bag. I like to separate things into compartments to stay organized and keep my luggage from turning into a mess. Jewelry in a bag, toiletries in another bag,  and if i’m carrying multiple bags on a trip with me I like to put the smaller bags into the bigger bag and pack it away as one unit. 

4. Make the most of your space. Rolling up your belts and putting them into your shoes will help save space and help them keep their shape at the bottom of your luggage. 

That’s all that I can think of for now! Keep an eye out for the next part of this series with either more tips on packing, or a peek into my carry on bag! 


There are thousands upon thousands of bras that we have to choose from, but here are four basic essentials that every girl needs to accommodate every possible form of top that we own. 

Nude Bra: Having a bra that very closely resembles your skin tone is really important. Sheer tops, white shirts, you’re going to want to have one of these handy to wear under those light colored shirts and dresses.

Strapless Bra: Necessary for all of those tube tops, racer back tops, tanks and spagetti strap dresses. Strapless bras are great for creating a cleaner look (no loose straps where they shouldn’t) but make sure you try them on before you purchase, sometimes they don’t have the right fit or could be extremely uncomfortable. Also, look for something with good support, since you don’t have the straps you need it to come from the underwire. 

Adhesive Bra: This bra is my secret weapon. It may not be the most comfortable option, but it’s great for all of the cutout/backless dresses: completely invisible and seamless!

Fun Bra: There are obvious staples needed when it comes to bras, but nothing beats something colorful and fun to brighten up your mood!


This is a super easy tutorial on how to make your own cream blush. It only takes a few minutes to make and you probably already have all the things needed at home.

Time: Less than 10 minutes to make (Another 10 minutes to cool and solidify)

Difficulty: 1/5

What You’ll Need:

-Pigment (you can use blush or eyeshadow)

-Chapstick (I used one with no flavor or fragrance.)

-Foundation or tinted moisturizer (optional)

-Empty container (for holding the blush)

-Container (for mixing ingredients)

-Something to stir with

-Hairdryer

What To Do:

Take your pigment and crush it up into powder if it’s in solid form. You can get creative with this part. You can mix different shades together or add fine glitter if you want it to be shimmery.

Take the Chapstick out of the tube. (Keep twisting the thing on the bottom until the chapstick pops out.) You need this because the wax solidifies the blush and the oils in it makes it creamy.

Put these ingredients in the container and mash up the chapstick. Mix it with the powder and use the hairdryer on high heat to melt the Chapstick. Stir until the consistency is even and the color is dispersed evenly.

I thought mine turned out too pigmented because I added too much blush. To tone it down a little, I added some light tinted moisturizer.

I worked too slowly and my mixture started hardening already so I had to remelt it with the hairdryer again.

While it is still liquidy, pour the mixture into the container. Allow it to cool for a minute and then pop it in the fridge for 10 minutes.

There you have it! It was really easy to make and wasn’t expensive at all. You can apply it with your fingers, but I prefer to use a stipple brush. :)


Here are some of my all time favorite beauty products! The best part is that they are all super affordable and they work so well. I absolutely love these products.

ELF Essential Waterproof Eyeliner Pen: This is only $1. I saw it at Target and I was skeptical of it at first, but it turns out that they work extremely well! I always get a precise and bold line. They last a few months before they dry up and have to be replaced, but that goes for all liquid eyeliner pens. So I would recommend getting this one because it’s cheap and works just as well, if not better than the other eyeliners out there! 

ELF Studio Brushes: They are $3 each, probably the most affordable brushes I’ve ever seen. The only exception is the kabuki brush which is $6. They work very well and can last you a long time! I’ve been using mine for about a year and the hairs never fall out or anything. My favorites are the stipple brush and powder brush. I use these on an almost daily basis. There is an even cheaper alternative: the brushes with the white handles are only $1 each. They are not as good quality and the hairs aren’t as soft though. If you are buying face brushes, I would invest in the studio brushes because they are essential for getting a flawless look.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream: This is my favorite lip product! It’s very unique; it’s applied like a lip gloss but the formula is like lipstick that dries matte. They are $6 and they make a great addition to your makeup set.


These ‘studded’ nails are so easy to acheive, all you need are some micro beads, nail polish, chapstick and a small stick or tweezers. 

Paint two coats on all of your nails, making sure to leave the nail that you want to have studded for last! You want the polish to be wet when you apply the beads. 

I found that the easiest way to easily arrange the beads on your nail is to dip the end of a stick into some chapstick and then proceed to use that stick to grab a bead, then apply that to your nail. It should transfer easily if your polish is still wet!

—-Again, sorry for the late posts everyone! We’ll be up and running regularly again soon. 

Apologies for the lack of posts…

Natalie is currently on vacation, and I am busy with hw and finals for my last week of summer school! We’ll be back up and running consistently asap! 

Feel free to leave us more requests in our ask box!
