OOTD (21.September.2013)

Sorry! I meant to post this up earlier but I've been so busy recently ): Anyway, a couple weeks ago, I snatched this great Sparkle + Fade soft moto jacket from UO for only $20.00! It came last week and I wore it to school and i just loved it. Its a little big on me but that just makes it even more comfier, if you ask me. It resembles a lot like Eleanor's Topshop coat from her instagram pic! Hope you have a wonderful day! (: xx

ps. sorry for the really crappy quality, I'll use my good camera next time-promise!

Coat: Urban Outiffters

Fashion Haul

So instead of socializing this summer, I decided to buy stuff online.. Eee! 
Hope you enjoy! xx (: 

I got this top at Zara and I thought it was just simply chic; something you can wear when you go out to dinner, with friends or just about town. I love the button lining in the back-it seems so sophisticated along with the peter pan collar haha. 

A couple posts ago, I announced that I had ordered the Topshop Teddy Fur Pea Coat and may I just say I feel like a freakin sheep when I wear it. It is the warmest thing I own (which is weird because I live in Southern California) and I cant wait to wear it when it gets colder, which wont be till around  January haha. Seriously it is so warm and comfy and it's great if you live someplace where it gets to the freezing tempertures. 

Sorry for the really crappy lighting here but oh well. Alas, I got another Eleanor exact! The Easy Sweater doesn't look very warm in photos but au contraire.... it is. Again, when it gets to the colder climate here, I'm definitely wearing this around school or on a casual day to hang out. 

Seeing as Topshop is now out of stock of the Alexy platform chelsea boots, I saw these boots from ASOS were a great alternative! Unlike the chelsea boots which I thought were feminine, these shoes have a more rounded toe edge and give that vibe of masculinity which I think is very chic if you pair it with high waisted jeans and a button down shirt and blazer for that cosmopolitan look, or you can pair it with a cute dress and it will still look chic.

August Favorites!

So I know we're already two weeks into September, but I felt like I should show you guys what I've been loving in the mont of August! Enjoy xx (: 

I've always been one to not really bother putting on sunscreen as a child and unfortunately, that turned out to be a bad decision-now I have all these dark spots on my face and have been recently getting an uneven skin tone ): I purchased the Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Correcter *whew what a name*. After 4 weeks of using it every morning and night, I can happily say my skin tone has very much improved! Along with putting that on, I also apply the Clinique Super City Block Sunscreen SPF 40. 

This has been my go-to face wash since the beginning of August and I can actually say, it works very well! I have combination skin and an oily T-zone so I needed to find something that wouldn't irritate my skin and BAM.. This is it. It smells very girly and sweet and it does the job by removing all makeup  and dirt off your face :3 

A lot of people say when you go to college, you have the freedom to wear lots of makeup and to dress up and stuff, but personally, I'm not that kind of gal. Im not one to spend an hour on my face-especially when I have to wake up at 6:00 am in the morning to drive 30 minutes away. I needed something that would do the job in an easy way and the Bare Minerals Loose Powder Foundation does the job. I've never used powder as a base before so this was very new to me and I was very impressed. It even covered up my middle eastern dark circles! :D (Weee!) 

Speaking of Middle Eastern dark circles, needless to say CONCEALER IS A NECESSITY FOR ME. I've spent my years trying to find a good concealer that covers my dark circles throughout the day; whether I'm at school all day or going out with friends, etc. This concealer really does the job by covering that up. It has a very rich, creamy consistency which makes it easier to blend in evenly. The only flaw is that it does crease after a couple of hours and so sometimes I have a long white line across my eyelid -.- I would have to get a primer or even powder my eyelid to mattify it but other than that, it's a great concealer.

Even though it's not autumn here in California doesn't mean I can't put on autumn inspired makeup! I got this L'oréal eyeshadow kit a long time ago but never really used it until now. It's been my daily makeup look for a couple weeks now and I love how it looks! I use the Hazel brown color as a base and use the gold-champagne shimmery color to highlight the inner corners, and than I take dark brown color from another pallet or the dark plum color and lightly shade that around the outer corners. After that I line my eyes with brown eyeliner and put mascara. It's a subtle autumn look I think I'm going to stick with for a while (:

I finally gave in and purchased the Batiste Dry Shampoo from UO. I held myself back for a while, convincing myself that I don't need it but I JUST WANTED IT. And it's true, it works wonderfully. It makes my hair smell like the girliest girl out there and adds more volume to my hair (which I lack very much of) and yeah, this is a great buy if you're thinking of getting it (: 

Now for Non-Beauty Favorites! (which is just music haha)
