Simple Fourth of JULY Accessories

 Changing up your hair and nails are the two easiest ways to spice up your look, especially for a festive holiday like the Fourth of July.  On the nails I used the Essie shade Russian Roulette and Deborah Lippmann's Mermaid Eyes. I chose to go simple with the nails but you can use red, white and blue shades to do what ever design you fancy.  For hair, I used a bandanna tied up as a headband. This adorable American Flag bow is from Marley Lilly and is absolutely perfect for the Fourth of July! Let me know below what you're wearing to show your American pride!

Rio Rush: Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain

Summer is here and that means it's time for fun bright lip shades! My favorite so far this summer has been the Revlon Moisture Stain in the shade Rio Rush.  This creamy and pigmented stain is great for the warmer months because it won't budge with the heat. What's your favorite summer lip colors? Let me know in a comment below!

My Favorite Products of May

NYX Shadow Stick: This easy to apply shade in "Flushed" is great to wear on it own or to layer with shadows to last all day.
Bobbi Brown Cream Shadow & Brush: Similar to the NYX stick, this cream shadow in the shade "Beach Bronze" doesn't crease and keeps my shadows in place all day. The Bobbi Brown Brush just gives you a little more control when applying the product.
Nailpolish: OPI Sweetheart, a gorgeous natural nude/pink color.
Real Techniques Fluffy Powder Brush: I started using this brush again for powder and I forgot how fabulous it was.
Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Texturing Hair Cream: I hate using heat on my hair in the warmer months, so I turn to products like this one to tame and fix up my naturally wavy hair.
Fresh Sugar Rose Lip Balm: This product gives the best "your lips but better" color. Great for a natural makeup summer day.
Tarte Eyelash Curler: I finally upgraded from my broken $1 Elf eyelash curler to this perfect tool. Let me just say my lashes have been on point this past month and it was definitely worth the money.

#GiftsForGrads

It's that time of year again and I'm not talking about "Back to School" or Christmas either.  The months of May and June are filled with happy celebrations of students all over the world graduating and starting new chapters of their life.  If you're not the one in a cap and gown getting ready to receive a diploma, then you must be on the hunt for a gift for a grad you know and love. If you have been struggling to find the perfect graduation gift, I have a solution for you. I recently created two of my very own #GiftsForGrads collections on eBay using some of the fabulous items listed here. Online shopping on sites like eBay is fast and simple. Within days you can have the perfect graduation gift delivered right to your door.
#GiftsForGrads
If you're like me, then you must love online shopping. I enjoyed browsing other eBay #GiftsForGrad collections and decided to make my own. My first collection included gifts for technology loving members of the Class of 2014. Cameras, headphones, tablets, laptops, etc are all included in this collection. The second collection I created is for all the graduating "Girls on Go".  From perfume to electronics this fashionable collection is perfect for any fashion forward busy grad you may know. My favorite item out of this collection has to be the "Kate Spade Cobble Hill Mini Carson Black Leather
Crossbody Bag".  It's a perfect versatile work bag and even weekend bag. The cross-body strap is a great useful detail that makes carrying the bag much easier.


Check out details and full lists of both of my collections here.
