NYC College Fashion Week 2014

                          
Last night I attended Her Campus' College Fashion Week 2014 at the Santos House in New York City! The night started off with a photos in front of a step & repeat followed by a visit to booths of the events amazing sponsors including European Wax Center, Tresemme, bareMinerals, Simon Premium Outlets and boohoo.com!
After visiting all the booths, exploring the brands, getting my brows vamped up by the ladies of the European Wax Center, it was time for the show to finally begin! There were so many amazing styles that the models rocked on the runway, it was hard to pick a favorite look! Below was one of my favorite outfits, particularly I love the metallic midi skirt pictured below (click here for a better look at the gorgeous piece).  This is an adorable piece that can be a staple for your fall wardrobe.  If we are really planning ahead here, this metallic skirt would be perfect for a New Year's Eve night out. If you want to check out more styles visit boohoo.com for more fashion and looks that were featured in the Her Campus College Fashion Week 2014!
                   
                   
After the event wrapped up, on our way out we received a goody bag filled with samples and treats from the events amazing sponsors.  All in all, the event was a huge success and I hope to return next year for NYC College Fashion Week 2015!

Color Clutch: The Ultimate Nail Polish Space Saver

 The secret is out...And yes it is true-I am a nail polish-aholic. Over the years my collection of polishes has grown from 5 to 155 and with that many polishes, it's hard to find the space to store them all! I recently came across a new product called Color Clutch which is a new nail polish storage product.  It's a compact storage solution for nail polish that can store up to 18 bottles in only 2.5 inches of space.  This product is sleek and the box can fit right on your shelf, like a book! 




This is a beauty storage product that is definitely worth checking out.  It's great for girls like me who live in dorms or small apartments and simply don't have the luxurious space to store polishes. Learn more about Color Clutch by clicking here and feel free to watch the video at the beginning! YAY for compact and organized storage!

Soft Waves for Fall

Each year I switch back and forth between straight or curly hair being my go to favorite hairstyle. Since ,y hair is naturally wavy, everyday I either reach for my curing iron or the straightener.  This Fall, I've been favoring the curing wand. Yup, I am loving waves for this fall.  I use a Sultra one inch curling wand that I purchased from Sephora a few years ago.  I always use a Tresemme heat protectant ($4 at Target) before I use the wand to protect my hair from any damage the wand can do.  Personally, I justify using heat on my hair in the Fall and Winter.

Braided Twist on a Classic Ponytail

                                  
      
1. Begin with a normal high ponytail.  This look works best with straight, smooth hair.
2. Grab two sections of hair from each side of the pony and braid them all the way to the bottom. Secure the braids with a clear elastic.
3. Begin wrapping the braids around the main portion of the ponytail. Criss cross them to make a fun and unique pattern.
4. When you get to the bottom of both braids, gather all of the remaining hair and again secure it with a clear elastic. 
5. Top it off with some hairspray and you're good to go!
