Monday Madness

featured-monday

A couple of weeks ago I was shopping at Sephora when I decided to use my points for a sample of Benefit’s Bella Bamba blush.  It was the best use of my points because ever since I used the sample, I haven’t touched any of my other blushes.  The color is suppose to be watermelon with gold shimmer.  I would say the color is a mix between pink and coral, so pretty.  The shimmer and the color are both very subtle so I can wear it to work but it can also be layered a little more for night time.  I don’t need to use a highlighter with this blush, it’s two in one!!  I am definitely going to get the full size blush when I run out of the sample, which I am sure will be very soon.  So, go get yourself one too and perk up that pretty face with some Bamba!!!

Tuesday Trendy

Today’s trendy report is about Peter Pan Collar.  I thought this one was a little young when I first saw it and that I would look ridiculous wearing this trend.  But then I saw celebs of all ages wearing it (from Hailey Steinfield 15, Naya Rivera 25, to Natalie Portman 31) and realized it’s something I can def try, w/out looking like I am trying to be 12.  So, I decided to give it a shot and was surprised at how much I liked it!!  I bought two different type of shirts, first is a light pink chiffon (yes, of course, I bought chiffon, lol, I am obsessed with it!!!) and the second one is a dressy nudey/taupey color with silver spots on it.  I have yet to buy a Peter Pan collared dress since I already bought 2 tops, trying to save some $$$; let’s see may be soon I can get one.

Below you will see pictures of how I styled each shirt:

The pink one I wore with black dressy shorts for work and paired it with pastel colored earrings, bangles, patent skinny belt and shoes (a little black against black contrast, I thought the patent would stand out more than leather since the pants were black).  If your work has a stricter dress policy, you can switch the shorts with pencil skirt or long cotton sateen pants and a black linen blazer (cotton sateen and linen will keep you cool but they are still dressy enough for work). I also wore this same shirt to a BBQ recently (not pictured, I didn’t take any, big oops) with light blue jeans shorts and matching pink flats with bows (yes I like bows too, lol, so girly, it always makes me happy), and same jewelry.  So, it’s a very versatile top, probably because it’s made of Chiffon, ha!!

The nude/taupe one is a little dressier so I wore it with darker washed skinny jeans for a casual date night with the hubby or a girls night out.  Paired it with black satin pumps for extra shot of hotness and kept the jewelry silver matching with the silver spots (I wore a rounder shaped earrings to mimic the shape of the silver spots on the shirt).

Let me know what you guys think about this trend, if you have tried or will try.  Are there any other trends now that you are loving/hating or want me to talk about?
