#2014BloggerChallenge Topic 8 | Spring OOTD

Hey There Beauty Cuties!

Today is topic eight of the #2014BloggerChallenge! And just a quickie side note- I couldn’t participate in the last two topics, as I was completely swamped and thus unmotivated to do the post, so I decided to forgo them instead of two posts lacking quality! Alas, here is my Spring outfit of the day, that I just adore!

(All clickable links!) | Tank-Garage | Cardigan- Urban Planet | Leggings- H&M 

This outfit is the epitome of classy and simple. It ties in spring with a floral tank that almost gives off a tropical vibe with the colour scheme, and the lightweight black cardigan and leggings make everything look effortless and chic. One thing I also adore, is that I’ve tucked in the tank to give the illusion of a bodysuit, so it looks sleek. Overall, I think just a simple addition to your wardrobe (Like a floral tank!) can totally change your wardrobe for the warmer weather!

Hope you enjoyed my ootd!

April Clothing Wishlist | Spring 2014 |

Hey There Beauty Cuties!

Sorry I haven’t posted in the past few days, I was going to but then time got the best of me!

AprilClothingWishlist2014

(These are all clickable links!) Joggers-Forever21 | Floral Shorts-Forever21 | Floral Top-Forever21 | Crop Top-Brandy Melville | YingYang Top-Brandy Melville  | Shoes-Toms  |

I’ve been craving some new wardrobe pieces for the spring/summer so naturally a wishlist is in order! First up, are these floral joggers from Forever 21. I just think they’re so fashionable and look so comfortable and they look perfect for lazy days. Next up, is a crop top from Brandy Melville that is just so chill and perfect for summer days. Also from Forever 21 are some pyjama-inspired shorts that I think are just oh-so fabulous and pretty. Now with floral on the mind, this 3/4 length sleeve floral shirt just screams spring and I think it’s so beautiful! It’d be perfect to pair with some dark wash jeans or black leggings. Other than floral, another trend I adore is palm trees, so when I saw these palm tree Toms I literally stopped in my tracks. They’d be so perfect! And lastly, I have a muscle tee from Brandy Melville that has the perfect doses of femininity and grunge.

Hope you enjoyed my clothing wishlist and tell me below what’s on YOUR wishlist!

Hair & Skincare Haul | EOS, Olay, Marcelle, & More! | Spring 2014 |

Hey There Beauty Cuties!

Springtime is here, and so is a new haul! This one focuses on skincare and haircare, but look out because a makeup haul is on it’s way as well!

Spring2014HairandSkincareHaul

First off, is my Hask Monoi Oil Nourishing Deep Conditioner. I saw on the Hask website they had a new ‘Monoi’ line and was ecstatic. But, I didn’t know how I would get my hands on it. I even tweeted Hask! So I was so happily surprised to find that the ‘Monoi’ line was at my local Wal-mart! I’m really excited to try this and I hope it erases some of the damage from my hair. Next up, is a newer product released in the Olay Fresh Effects line and it is a facial moisturizing sunscreen, which I think will be totally fab for the spring and summer (And in case you were wondering, it’s SPF 15). This next product is a re-purchase as I completely used my last one up, and it is the Nivea Lip Butter in Caramel Cream Kiss. It smells magnificent and is the best lip balm I’ve found to date!

The ‘Body Envy’ line from Herbal Essences is my favourite Herbal Essences line. So of course when I saw it came in body wash form I couldn’t resist! And I found it at a great time too, I just finished my B&BW Warm Vanilla Sugar Shower Gel. Also on the shower spectrum, I found this adorable travel sized EOS shave cream and just couldn’t say no, especially with it’s one dollar price tag! It also smells delicious (it’s pomegranate and raspberry!). Now talking more skincare, I was sent the ‘Ultra Gentle Cleansing Gel’ by Marcelle, and I’m really excited to try it! It seems to be perfect for my sensitive/combination skin. Lastly, I decided to get a cucumber peel off mask from Freeman.

Hope you enjoyed my haul and comment below your fav product I got!

My Fav Outfit’s I’ve Created on Polyvore #1 | Spring 2014

Hey There beauty Cuties!

I love social media (Can I get a whoop whoop?!) so it was only logical to get Polyvore! If you’re unaware of Polyvore its basically a site where you can put outfits together, then see where everything is from. I think it’s really fun, and I decided I’d share some of my favourite outfits I’ve created with you. If you’re interested in seeing where any items are from or looking at other outfits, check out my Polyvore here: http://thecutelittlebeautyblogger.polyvore.com

 

This first look is the epitome of festival chic, and I absolutely adore it. The outfit itself is oh-so summer with the oversized palm tree sweater and denim shorts, but the flower crown and tie-dye backpack totally add that festival vibe to the look!

This look is one of my favs, and I adore it’s uniqueness. The crop top is so modern and sleek, while the ombre crochet shorts make it more casual and laid back. Pair it with diamond shaped studs and a floral phone case and you’re ready to have a great day shopping or sightseeing!

 

Screen Shot 2014-03-26 at 4.46.19 PM

 

The yin yang top make it totally hippie chic, while the shorts add femininity. Keep it simple with studs and sandals, and you’re ready for whatever summer throws at ya!

Screen Shot 2014-03-26 at 4.46.54 PM

 

This has to be my favourite out of all of them, and is also the most simple. The floral sweater is so modern and feminine, while the high waisted shorts just add to the already awesome vibe! I think it’s super simple but also super fab.

Screen Shot 2014-03-26 at 4.46.58 PM

This last look is totally casual and laid back, perfect for lazy summer days. Keepin’ it simple with a palm tree muscle tank and denim shorts, paired with round sunglasses plus converses gives a super fab and chill vibe.

Screen Shot 2014-03-26 at 4.47.03 PM

Hope you enjoyed and comment below which outfit was your fav!

“Spring Has Sprung” TAG

Hey There Beauty Cuties!

I recently saw the lovely Youtuber “BeautyBySiena” do the ‘Spring has Sprung’ tag and I really enjoyed it, so I decided to do it too!

SPRINGHASSPRUNG

What are some spring trends you’re looking forward to the most?

I’m really looking forwards to pineapples and palm trees for graphics and  kimonos and joggers for articles of clothing!

Whats your favorite spring clothing piece?

My favourites spring clothing pieces would have to be either my floral kimono or my crochet/lace cream shorts!

What do you do during your spring break?

I had a stay-cation full of Netflix bingeing! Teehee ;)

Is it warm or cold during spring where u live?

Indeed! I still have snow *cue sad face*

Whats your favorite spring lip color?

I’m a pink-lip girl all year round, so definitely pinks. I’ve been loving my Nyx Butter Lipstick in ‘Fun Size’.

Favorite spring nail polish color?

Mint! Rimmel’s ‘Mintilicious’ has been my go-to. I’ve already painted my nails that colour four times!

Favorite spring color?

Hmm..so many to choose! Mint, blush, peach, periwinkle, and lilac (I’m a pastel gal!)

Favorite Starbucks drink during spring?

I love frappuccino’s! The vanilla bean one with a shot of caramel is my fav.

Do you add color to your makeup for spring?

Sometimes, though I do usually stick to natural makeup. I do like to switch it up every now and then with colourful liner or pastel shadows!

What are you most excited about for spring 2014?! 

I’m excited for the fashion! I adore springtime fashion and am excited to get myself some new muscle tees (they are my fashion obsession!)

March Favourites | 2014

Hey There Beauty Cuties!

photo 1-96

Just wanted to quickly say my hibernation week (one week off the blog!) has payed off, and now I have over 20 posts completed for you guys!

I can’t believe it’s already April! With that said, I bet you’ve seen a flourish of March favourites popping up as much as the flowers outside! Alas, here I am to add another one. I have some beauty, tv, music, app, and youtuber favourites so enjoy!

Beauty: 

  • Nyx Butter Lipstick in ‘Fun Size’: This is a newer product in my collection (See my haul here:) and I adore it! It’s a light creamy pink-nude. It applies really smoothly (like butter!). Plus, it’s only 5.99$. My only complaint is that you need to apply a little bit of lip balm before applying, because if you’re lips are overly dry, it can extenuate your fine lines. But overall it’s fab!
  • Nyx Butter Gloss in ‘Angel Food Cake’: I was on a Nyx kick, so naturally I have two Nyx favs. This one is a gloss, and it’s absolutely divine! It smells fab, is so buttery smooth, and is a lovely dark pink-mauve colour. It’s great when you want some colour but some shine as well!
  • Herbal Essences Color Me Happy Dry Shampoo: Herbal Essences recently released three dry shampoos and with my love of Herbal Essences and laziness, I just had to try it! It smells so great, and is great at lessening my greasy hair! It also has natural tapioca which is fab!
  • Marcelle Eyebrow Pen: I was sent this by Marcelle and it’s been my go-to eyebrow product since! I simply draw in the sparse areas of my brows and BAM by brows look A-Maz-Ing.
  • Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in ‘Vanilla’: Yet another new product (I went cray this month, I know) and it’s now my favourite concealer OF ALL TIME. It suits my skin tone exactly, doesn’t settle into fine lines, masks dark circles, and blends effortlessly. Even though it’s expensive, I think it’s definitely worth it.
  • Rimmel 60 Second Nail Polish in ‘Mintilicious’: Usually I only paint my nails with a colour once in a month, just to change it up. But, this one is so amazing that I painted my nails with it not once, not twice, but FOUR times. It’s just the perfect mint, it goes on without any streaks and is perfectly opaque in two coats!

Music: 

  • “Best Day of My Life” by American Authors: I just love this song because it makes me feel so happy and boosts my mood and energy. \
  • “Life Your Life” by T.I and Rihanna: This song is an oldie I’ve recently rekindled my love for! If you haven’t listened to this I definitely recommend you do.
  • “Electric Feel” by MGMT: Another oldie but goodie! It’s just a fun, upbeat song and is just great to listen to in the background when you’re on the computer.

Entertainment (TV, Apps):

  • Ice Cream Jump: This is my latest addicting iPhone app and if you’re one to get hooked on the popular apps (Candy Crush, Flappy Bird, etc) you’ll love this just as much! It’s really fun, and just totally a guilty pleasure game.

  • “Gossip Girl”: I finished ALL of the seasons (They have all six on Netflix!) and it’s totally fab. Just be warned, unlike the rest of the seasons, season six only has ten episodes. So, don’t be like me and don’t realize that there was only ten after watching the finale.
  • “Once Upon A Time”: This TV show is my latest Netflix binge and I’m really enjoying it! It’s a great break from my Gossip Girl, it’s plot on the completely other side of the spectrum. In a nutshell, all the fairy tale characters you’ve ever known have been sent to a small town in Maine and it’s all the problems that it entails!

Youtubers: 

  • KaileeMckenziehttps://www.youtube.com/user/kaileemckenzie: I’ve always enjoyed her and I think she’s just been really putting out fab videos recently (not that the others aren’t fab) and I just love listening to her!
  • ArdenRosehttps://www.youtube.com/user/ARose186: I’ve been subscribed for a while, but for at least four months I haven’t watched her videos (Just because I go through phases of Youtubers I like to watch) and I’ve really been getting into her vids again! She’s just really funny, and the perfect mix of girly and tomboy.
  • BeautyBySienahttps://www.youtube.com/user/BeautyBySiena: I stumbled upon Siena’s channel this year searching for ‘what’s in my bag’ videos and ended up really liking her! So definitely go check her out.
  • MakeupbyMandy24: https://www.youtube.com/user/MakeupbyMandy24: I recently found her channel as well, and just think she’s great!
  • Tati: https://www.youtube.com/user/GlamLifeGuru: Tati is just amazing for showing you products and giving her review of them. If you’re looking for a lot about products, she’s your gal!

Also please give me some recommendations for Youtubers!

 

Hope you enjoyed my favourites and please leave me a comment below telling me your fav products this month!
