Roses are Red, Wednesdays are Pink!

So today I would like to share with you, my lovely followers, all of my favorite things pink!

I have recently switched my morning face washing routine from the oh so expensive Aveda product system to  much more affordable grapefruit themed morning routine!

Summer Styles 026

I start my morning with chocolate chip waffles and my Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Foaming Scrub. This oil-free acne wash is by far one of the best fac washes and best smelling face washes I have ever used! The foaming aspect makes me feel like I am really getting clean and removing all of the dirt and oil from my face and the microbeads polishes off the dead skin and really helps prevent my skin from drying out. After pat drying my face I apply a small amount (less than a pump) of my new favorite moisturizer.   Yes to grapefruit has a nice thick, gel-like feel as it is applied to my face and also smells amazing! The best part is that it not only keeps my face at the perfect level of hydration all day but it also correct and repairs my skin! At the begging of this summer I had some small acne scars and had trouble with redness in my T-zone, but now that I have been using Yes religiously, I have a much much more even skin tone!


After my daily face washing routine, I head to my closet to find my favorite pink shirt!

Summer Styles 020

I have recently purchased this cute little Lauren Conrad tank from Kohl’s and the necklace from JCPenny’s and spend less than $25 on both! On a lazy day like today I will be pairing this tank/necklace combo with my favorite pair of lightwash distressed boyfriend jeans from Guess.

Lastly, I would like to share with you these wonderful and Oh-So-Cute Urbanear headphones!

I bought these little cuties from Best Buy last summer and they have been with me through every outfit and occasion from camping to carrides!


Cool Colors

On hot summer days today (it’s almost 90 degrees in little old Newbury, OH), it can be hard keep occupied without getting overheated. It’s too hot to go hiking or biking, the zoo animals are lazy, and standing in line for two hours to go down a chlorine filled water slide sounds like the last thing I want to do. Instead, I have opted for a much more relaxing way to spend my day. I am going to paint my nails the coolest coldest color I can find in my collection and start the book I bought a my favorite bookstore last week. (See Shopping in Chagrin Falls for details)

My nails polish collection is impressive and contains many different brands and tons of different colors but my favorite nail polish brand by far is Essie. My first ever nail polish purchase was an Essie nail polish and I have been hooked ever since. I love the square little bottles and the perfectly creative names for each and every color. I love how the brushed seem to always pick up the right amount of polish each time and how the color glides over every nail without streaking.

I have tons and tons of Essie favs and would love to share them all but that would take a very long time. So here are some of my favorite cool colors for this hot summer day.

nailpolish 025

The dark army/forest green color of Sew Psyched is one of the most popular colors this year. This color looks great with contrast against whites, tans, and light browns. I also love sporting this polish with more feminine tones such as peach and lavender.

      Above and center is a better photo of Turquoise & Caicos. This shade is PERFECT for summer! Its light, it’s fresh, and it’s Turquoise! Doesn’t get much better than that! I love pairing it with other shades of green and blue but also works as a wonderful pop of color to a more neutral outfit.

If I was forced to wear one color nail polish for the rest of the year it would be Mint Candy Apple (below). It’s the most splendid shade of light blue with a flawless hint of mint. This color is bright and happy for summer, goes with everything, can carried into fall because of how amazing it looks against warmer tones, and then can slide into winter to match the cold colors of snow.

nailpolish 007

Last but not least, the brightest most royal blue around: Butler Please! now even though I have never painted all of my nails this color (I have to admit it is a bit bright for my taste) I love this for toe nails or an accent nail against a lighter blue. Butler Please is a fun summer color and another great choice for fall.

nailpolish 005

Comment with your favorite shade and I will paint my nails and make my next OOTD revolve around the most popular choice.

Make sure to check out my next OOTD post this Friday!



My 4th of July #NOTD (Necklace of the Day)

I bought this blue (maybe slightly purple BUT MOSTLY BLUE!!) necklace from Nordstrom Rack a couple months ago and didn’t pay more than $15ish for it! It’s perfect and fun for summer and I was able to wear it with a lot in the spring too!

The shades of blue in the necklace and shirt go well together  and aren’t too obnoxious for daytime. I plan to complete this outfit with a pair of high waist shorts, a pair of red sandals, and my favorite watch.

For night time I want to wear something a little bit more exciting and festive(It is America’s birthday after all)!! I decided that I want to pair the pale-ish blue necklace with a more vibrant shade of red!

I purchased the red and blue tank from Kohl’s on Monday.

the red Free People dress is a year or so old and was purchased from Nordstrom Rack.


WildFox Couture

Eeeek! Look what I found in the mail yesterday! I ordered this precious little Pin Up Hearts Paradise Cami by for nearly 70% off through Nordstom Rack and if you know me at all you know that Nordstrom rack is my shit (excuse my launguage)!! Even being on a broke college kid budget, I always find there selection to be adorable and affordable!

I have to say, this might just be my new favorite tank top! It drapes and falls in all the right places and I love the way the bottom sligtly flows out,it’s very flattering. I can see myself getting a lot of use out of this tank top, It can be worn with denim for a casual look or with a leather jacket or skirt for a night out!

I would like to thank Nordstrom Rack again for this amazing $20 find!

Also, look out for another Nordstrom Rack find in my next post!


Colorful & Casual #OOTD

tie diesea island cotton


I was feeling a little colorful and a lotta day time casual today. This tie dye shirt is one of my favorites and most worn this summer, it’s a Libery Love shirt that I purchased from Nordstrom Rack about a month ago. The mellow yellow Pilcro and the Press pants are a garage sale find and are also featured in my post Garage Sale Treasures (Part 2). I decided to finish this outfit off with a scent from Bath and Body Works rather than shoes or jewelry because I’ll most likely be sitting at home all day anyway. Sea Island Cotton was my signature scent last summer but since it’s a classic I still wear it from time to time.
