Loop Scarves are SOOO IN!

More and more as the cold weather is creeping in, I’m noticing that more and more scarves are popin’ in! And this year, it’s not the long scarves that pop in, it’s the loop scarves. Last year people started wearing that, but it wasn’t “THE” thing yet. Well, this year, it is! These loop scarves does a lot of the job of jazzing up a casual outfit and it keeps you warm in the winter time!

Here are a couple pictures of what someone has done:

I do recommend getting the scarves that are knit like material, because it’s much fancier that way than the cotton scarves, however, that is personal preference.

Yesterday, my roomie and I went shopping, and I happened to come across these wonderful ear muffs. The first thing I thought of was that this wasn’t going to ruin my hair like a winter hat would do to me. I put this own and it looked so cute and classy, I couldn’t help but grab a pair for my roommate and I. If you guys don’t want to ruin your hair with a winter hat and still look slamming, please consider adding this to your winter collection, it’s only $5.80 at Forever21, can’t beat that!

You can get yours at:

Minnetonka shoes

In the past few years, Minnetonka was seen by people wearing it, yet it didn’t really “launch” until this year, it might be, but definitely by next year! Minnetonka originate from America at least according to their website, click HERE. Everyone shops at American Eagle, even if your not a big American Eagle fan, you still have a few pieces from there. I’m not a big American Eagle fan myself, but I do notice that their inventory is getting cuter and cuter as time passes by, so this year I might end up picking up some pieces from there myself. This year, American Eagle is helping the company Minnetonka sell their shoes, which will really help the brand get known to the public. As far as the brand Minnetonka goes, only their collection known as the “Moccasin” are selling to the public, but they have many other great stylish boots 🙂

Also, it looks as if the style of Native American is slightly coming back into the fashion world, but that will take a few years if it really does.

In the meantime, here are the shoes by Minnetonka worn with different outfits.

This week has been one of the busiest weeks that I have experienced in a long time. I don’t like it and I don’t wish to experience it, but sometimes, there really isn’t a choice whether you like it or not, it just kind of happens. I understand when many people experience busy weeks that involve lots of studying either by your desk or in a coffee shop, they automatically think they must be comfortable. At home, wearing sweatpants and a comfy t-shirt wouldn’t be much of an issue, I mean, after all, who are you impressing? What, the four walls? Well, if your studying at home, what you look like isn’t much of an issue, but when you go out to the coffee shop to study for exams, you should still aim to look good. You never know who the next person you run into will be. The more networking that one does, the closer and easier you are able to obtain a job that you’ve been working so hard for in college 🙂

So yes, this week has been a rough week for me, books has become my closest friends this week. I’m very tired and the hell doesn’t end until my late class on Friday. When you don’t have the time or simply really just don’t know what to wear, a pair of jeans and a cute white or any color top or if jeans are not your thing, leggings would be a good solution to sweatpants. Any top that covers your butt with a pair of leggings, then a jacket on top with any type of shoes is a really good choice as well. It’s still dressed up enough, but not too dressed down. I believe these two choices for exam week would be the best choice. I prefer jeans that flare out a bit and shirt tucked in with a pair of heels. It’s casual enough, at the same time, it’s not embarrassing either. And leggings, they give you room to move, comfortable, and quite stylish, I must say 🙂

Do you guys think these outfits are too dressed up for studying at the coffee shop? Yes? No? Which outfit is your favorite? What would you wear to the coffee shop if you were to study for exams?

The importance of eyes.

One of the highlights of the human face are the eyes. The eyes has the ability to change the whole look of the human face. With that being said, it’s very important to keep the eyes looking beautiful. Now, not everyone has naturally beautiful eyes or eyes that they want, but they can always work with what you have :). If you don’t have eyes that you would like, all you need is to get a palet of eye shadow, a type of eye liner, eye brow pencil, and of course some cosmetic brushes for the eye shadow. Depending on how you use the eye cosmetics, you can extenuate your beauty of your eyes and bring out the best of it. Bringing out the eyes can change your beauty by a whole lot.

Some of the best places to get eye makeup is Sephora and Mac. Sephora has really great eye shadow palates for really great prices, therefore you can get quality (the product stays on throughout the whole day) makeup for a decent price with lots of great colors 🙂 And Mac, Mac tends to specialize in eye makeup, from experience, and when I talk to many others, Mac has products that make your eyes look wonderful. Mac is a little bit more costly than Sephora, but it’s definitely worth every single buck of it.

For eyebrow pencil, I prefer something from the drug stores because eye brow pencils are very expensive in high end makeup for very little amount of it. They still on half of the day, therefore, it wouldn’t hurt to reapply around lunch time or whenever the middle of the day for you is. It is important to have a defined eyebrow because it helps bring out your eyes, bringing out the eyebrow could be known as a beauty mark.

 For the eyebrow pencil, I suggest a good brand from the pharmacy such as Revlon or Maybelline.

Eyeliner is one of the most important parts to extenuating the eye. If you wake up SUPER tired for the day and don’t have time to put on makeup, you should at the very least put eyeliner on. Especially for people who are Asian, eyeliner helps in making their eyes bigger, or else their eyes would be tiny. Eyeliner plays the most important in bringing out the eyes, it is the most noticeable part in eye makeup. I understand eyeliner is used to outline your eye, but it is good to get a little bit playful with it as well. I find it very stylish to add wings to the sides of your eye, plus many people like it too! 😉

The eyeliner, it’s a gel, but you apply it with a brush

Model with cat eye. Attractive and different, right?

Eyes sends a lot of messages to people, they say a million words without having to move your mouth at all. Wearing eyeliner in the cat eye way shows that your a serious, sophisticated, confident type of woman.

How are you liking the cat eye idea?

Do you think that eyes are one of the most important feature of the face?

What are your opinion on eye makeup?

What kind of messages would you like to send out to the public through eye makeup?

Leopard Prints…

Nicole Riche

are totally in this year. In the past few years, leopard print has been seen here and there, but this year, almost every store is pushing the idea out towards the public, and the public is liking it more and more. Typically fashion does take about 5 years for the public to catch onto it. I’m really loving the idea of it because it’s like a foreshadow to a wide side of you. Leopard prints are NOT just for going out, it’s great for everyday wear! That is, if you don’t over do it. Wearing all leopard prints would NOT be attractive, but giving it a touch of it to your clothing does spice up the outfit! 🙂

Lately, I have been doing some shopping for the fall. I only buy clothes from quality stores, so that leaves Forever21 out. One of my favorite stores since my high school years is Express. Express offers very sophisticated, sharp, and professional clothing even when it’s casual. Yes, when you go into a Express store or shop online, they do price their clothes quite expensive, but actually, it’s really NOT that expensive! Unlike many stores, Express offers A LOT of coupons either mailed to your house, online (on their web page), and by e-mail. There are so many chances to save on their clothing. A good example of a coupon that they offer would be something along the lines of, “$30 OFF YOUR $100 PURCHASE” or “$50 OFF YOUR $150 PURCHASE” or they have  many, many great promotions ALL THE TIME. A promotion that they do consistently would be something along the lines of “$15 for every sixty dollars you spend”, and even better is when they have seasonal sales. I mean sales that when they have to get the old stuff out and put the new stuff in, they have sales such as “60% off of the original price, and an EXTRA 20% off the clearance”. Believe it or not, you find really great stuff in the clearance. For this sale, I got myself three new mini skirts, two maxi skirts, two fashion tops, and one tank top, all for no more than $150! That is a complete steal! I’ve been a customer of Express for many years now, and I know how their clearance work, therefore I know when I’ll be able to get the best deal, yet it is a gamble. Every time Express goes on sale for 60% off and an ADDITIONAL 20% off the clearance, almost 99.9% of the time, next week, they will have a better promotion, such as “70% off and an ADDITIONAL 30% OFF”. It is a gamble because the first week that Express has this type of deal, many people are buying already, therefore, they may not have your size next week. And if you wait until the next week, the more chances they won’t have your size, but if your closet is filled with clothes, you can wait, right? After the holiday season is the best time to get clothing, especially the last week of January going into February. Express is just amazingly, extremely cheap. I recalled, there was a pair of boots that they were selling for $128 original price, I ended up getting it for $27 by the end of January. It was a gamble though…because I’m a size 7, and that is a popular size, but I have been paying close attention if that product was being bought fast or not.

To wrap this up guys, DON’T THINK EXPRESS IS EXPENSIVE, BECAUSE IT’S NOT!!! You just have to know how to look. If you have any questions, please comment!!!

*Note: I will be posting pictures of what I bought from Express as soon as I get the chance to!

Today my friend and I made an very unexpected trip to the Burlington Coat Factory. Believe it or not, I really like shopping there…I think it’s better than a Macy’s, because everything is DISCOUNTED and lots of good brand names. One of the first things that I always look at when I go shopping are shoes. I love shoes. Today, I found a pair of HEELS by Timberland. Now, I normally don’t like anything made by Timberland because I don’t feel is very classy, however, this time was different. These heels were actually pretty fashionable and they worked for walking in the snow. I thought I was in heaven when I found these heels because living in a city that contains a lot of snow, but at the same time still want to be fashionable, just isn’t very easy. These heels are like the perfect height too, about three inches high, and even better, it’s super comfortable, plus waterproof!

Can you say these heels are great for winter in the snow? The shoes were such a steal, only $54.99!

If your in love with these boots, a similar pair can be found on the website of Timberland.
