Hello loves, just wanted to do an update of some of the things I stoked up on this weekend, and some new purchases that I'm going to try out so I can do a review on. Let me know if you have tried any of these beauty products, and if you liked them!

I recently purchased this at my local health food store and I'm really curious how this will treat my skin. It's slogan is "Like a vitamin pill for the skin." Clearly they sold me. The smell is amazing and so far it is not greasy at all. I'll do an update on this in about a month!
{Also no animal testing with this company, thank the lord}

I 've never used either of these items so I'm really curious to see how they hold up. The mascara was from Milan, and since I've never had any of their mascaras before I figured they deserved a try. {the sale price of $4.99 helped too}
The L'Oreal hairspray was also a cheap buy at $3.99, but I have had good luck with L'Oreal in the past, so I'm hoping they don't let me down.

Has anyone out there tried this before? I have really been looking for a long lasting eye liner that will actually stay all day. The last few eyeliners I use have been smearing off leaving me looking like a raccoon. {not the look I'm going for}. I'm hoping this works out, and I'll keep you guys updated!

I bought these two items from Plato's Closet today, and I am really excited. If you have a Plato's Closet in your town, I highly recommend going. The bracelet was $3.00 and the shirt was $5.00. I mean it doesn't get much better then that. 

Oh Forever21. You can be the best and you can be the worst. Either way I never fail to have minor anxiety attacks from your store, and I am always overwhelmed. I went in today and didn't find many items I was impressed with, but I did find these two pieces, which I think I will get good use out of (until they fall apart of course)

I recently saw this on ThatsHeart blog, she said they are super pigmented and long wearing and I'm so excited to try this one out. I'll update on my opinion, but I have high hopes so far!

What are you guys stocking up for this week? With school starting soon it's a good idea to have everything ready to go! Let me know and leave me a comment below :)

Hello Pretties, I wanted to do an update on what I'm planning on wearing for my first day back to campus this fall, what do you guys think? Some of the links below for the items can be pricey, but I was able to find dupes for these on Ebay and at local shops around my home town.

What do you think? What will you be wearing on the first day back?

Its that time of the year again, your going back to school, and you know you need to look good. Attending a large school, or a small school, the pressure to look good can be anxiety inducing. There are literally thousands of girls on campus that each have their own personal style and spend time every day making themselves look good (Zanex anyone). The worst part is that you don't have time to plan out an entire outfit everyday and you don't really have the time, money or even the energy to put on a complicated and uncomfortable outfit. Well ladies, I've arrived with my list of back to school must haves. I own each of these pieces and I can tell your right now that without them in my closet I would be lost. Lets take a look!

The Cambridge Satchel is an absolute MUST HAVE for every day occasions and even formal events. This bag is so classic and the Cambridge Satchel Co. make them to last. My co-worker has had her for several years and the bag never becomes slouchy and has held up like a dream. This bag can be pricey, but believe me that it is so so so worth it. If your not feeling the price, head on over to Ebay or Amazon or even Etsy for some cheaper dupes. Just remember you are sacrificing the quality of the bag for a cheaper product

Faux Leather Motorcycle Jacket

 A motorcycle Jacket is something that every women NEEDS to have in her closet. Even if you feel like you may not typically wear this, buy it and you will feel transformed into that tough talking fashionable diva that you really are. Something about putting this jacket on makes me feel so empowered. These jackets can run pricey, but I have found several dupes from Ebay and Amazon that are only around $30.  Just keep in mind if you buy from a seller based in China ORDER A SIZE UP. Lord knows how many times I have bought an item from China bases sellers only to discover that only 1/3rd of my body will squeeze inside the clothing piece.

The Jessica Simpson Noway Flats are my favorite go to shoe. I found them very discounted on Ebay and wear them several times a week. Not only are they comfy but they are perfect for almost any outfit or to wear with some comfy tights.

This lipstick is to dieeee for. Just look at it. So bright and so beautiful. This is the lipstick that will make you stand out in the crowd. I personally own this and LOVE it. It stays on so well and makes me feel like I can do anything. If your thinking that it is too bright for you, think again, every girl should try wearing this lipstick once, and ROCK it.

Faux Leather leggings are the best thing to happen to me in this life. They make me feel like I just stepped out of Grease...except modern and sassy as hell. Once again DO NOT BE AFRAID OF THE LEATHER. If you think you would never wear these, then you must try them. Get out of your comfort zone, and jump straight into these leggings. Believe me they are SO comfy and paired with the right outfit you will not look cheesy. Preferable pair these with a longer and slouchy top and even the Jessica S. Noway Flats, and you will blow everyone's mind. TRUST ME.

Last but not least is the one and only shirt you will ever need. A neutral slouchy shirt. I posted a link below, but this shirt can be found anywhere...just head over to Forever21 (if you can handle the anxiety of going into Forever) and pick one up. This can be paired with your leggings, biker jacket, flats, and hot pink lipstick. Such an easy outfit, and because this is a neutral based outfit, your lipstick will stand out and your form will be flattering and tailored. Even though each peice on its own is a statement, paired together you will look like you know how to dress yourself and like you put a tremendous amount of effort into yourself. (No one has to know it only took you 5 minutes) 

let me know what you guys think of this outfit, what are your suggestions? Do you prefer more brightly colored outfits or do you like to play it safe? Leave me a comment below!
