Blake Lively's Nars Coral Look

I really cannot get over how absoliutley stunning Blake Lively looked at the Costume Institute Ball. First of all her tan is gorgeous, it really makes the electric blue color of the dress pop out. Her hair being pulled back is the perfect choiece, because it really lets you concentrate on the intricite Marchesa dress and her amazing makeup. The coral lip with her skin tone just goes perfectly. Elaine Offers did this makeup look and described it as “a very bronzed springtime fresh look…with lots of coral!” This whole look was created using NARS makeup! (This just makes me want NARS even more than before...see my "Little update" blog post for more on that)

1-On her face she has on Multiple Tint in Beverley Hills.

2-On top of that she has on Nars Orgasm blush .

3-On top of that she has on Nars bronzer in casino.

4-On her lids she has on Nars cream shadow in decameron and nars cream shadow in savage

5-On the inner corner of her eyes she has on Nars soft touch in goddess.

6-On her lips she has layered on Nars lipstick in Niagra, and in Love devotion.

I can't stop looking at this picture of her...I am seriously highly considering getting all the products that she used! I want to recreate this exact look! This even makes me want to go get a spray tan and bring a a picture of her, saying "This is how I want to look!" haha! What do you guys think of this look?

This October I will be walking in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. It's a 2 day walk in which i will walk 39 miles with my older sister and my aunt!

Little Update!

Right now I'm lying in bed, curled up under my fluffy white duvet comforter, while my two older brothers are fetching me ice water, and sorbet. Sounds like a lovely way to spend a night, right? Well not exactly, unfortunately I have a fever and I had to stay home from school today. I'm feeling pretty lousy right now but I figured that writing a quick little update blog post may lift my spirits a little!

So first off I found out the other day that I was accepted onto nordstroms BP fashion board! I had to go through an entire application process, which included a huge project! I did a photo shoot (see video here, see blog post here), and then i made a look book with the photos! Thea B.P Fashion Board is a group of teenage girls that were chosen to basically kind off help out at Nordstrom. We get to attend meetings once a month for a year, and help with fashion shows, and other things that I'm not exactly sure of yet. I'll keep you guys updated though :) It's a huge honor and I am beyond excited to be a part of this! I worked SO hard on my application, and this is just reassuring me that I'm taking a step in the right direction towards my career.

In other news today I received my sigma brushes in the mail and the new teen vogue! So it was a very successful mail day :) and the other day I got some NYX stuff in the mail. (*Hint hint*-expect some videos soon!) I am SO obsessed with makeup lately, its crazy! I think I'm going to save some money for some NARS stuff and a few things from Stila, and a lot of drugstore stuff. There's so much stuff I want, I cant even decide!

I've also been looking into facials and different spa treatments lately. I want to try a teen facial, just to like see how it works. I'm very curious about it. I think I may save some money for that. My dream is to one day spend an entire day at a spa complete with massage, facial, mani, pedi, light lunch, spray tan, hair, makeup..."sighhh"...well a girl can dream, right? Let me know if you guys have ever had any spa treatments and what you thought of them!

Summer Trends I'm Dying to Try!


I've been seeing a lot of "beige" outfits latley. I think having an entire outfit in different shades of a neutral tone is so sleek and sophisticated. It's deffinetly a fresh new look to try this spring.

A way to give this look a little oomph is to add a smoking hot luscious red lip!

If all neutrals are too boring for you then add a splash of light pink!


I LOVE the whole nautical look that has been going on for years now. But the one thing that has patricullary stood out to me lately has been these loose striped boatneck tops. I can totally picture wearing one of these with some really skinny dark washed jeans tucked into a hot pair of brown leather boots. Can you say tres chic?


You know that dress you wore to your cousins graduation last year thats just gathering dust in the back of your closet? Well wipe the dust off of that baby and wear it to any occasion by pairing it with a cardigan! A nice light cardigan can really make a fancy outfit look more casual. I think this look works best with a more form-fitting dress since the cardigan is looser.

A way to make this outfit pop a little more is to add a statment necklace! (see next post)


I have been SO obsessed with jewlery lately! But most of all neckalces! I don't have to many but I'm dying to try some of these statment pieces


This trend frustrates me to no end, however I'm determined to achieve this look. Honestly I've only tried on a few rompers in the past but I always get so annoyed with them...they never seem to flatter my body type. I've also kind of stayed away from them since they seem like sucha hard trend to tackle correctly. Part of me feels like these will only work on stick thin girls, but I want to find a way to make it work for me! I'm going to keep on trying, maybe a simple black one would work for me? Leave a comment with any tips.

Cheap Foundation!-Tiny Haul

The other day I stopped by CVS. Desperate need for foundation+small amount of $=getting the cheapest foundation you can find=cover girl true blend foundation!

So if you were not able to comprehend the equation above, I got the cover girl true blend foundation. Now for being the cheapest one there I honestly don't think the quality is bad at all. I think it was about $11.50? (Some one please correct me if I'm wrong) The only problem I have with it is that I think the color has the TEENIEST orange hint. So that was really a matter of choosing the wrong color. Overall the product is pretty normal. Has a nice consistency, is creamy, not too soupy, and spreads nicely. I think for the price it was very nice. But if you do have very sensitive skin then I would probably recommend to look else where. But if your looking for a foundation to hold you over for a bit then I'd say go for this. I'm not saying this is the top product of the year, but it is good.

I also picked up Glamour magazine, and I had to take a picture for your guys because I was so excited about this months! Lauren Conrad is on the cover and she is one of my FAVORITE people! I saw the magazine so many times, and since I'm trying to save my money I made myself not get it...but eventually I had to give in, and I'm glad I did. This months issue is fabulous. I read it all while babysitting, and I plan to read it again ASAP. you need to go pick it up!!

A Day in Central Park!

I went to the city today with my friends! here are some pictures (These were taken without the intention of being out on my blog, so I didn't really get any good fashion pictures) A lot of the pictures were taken in central park.
