What I Wore: Peek-a-boo Biker

(this guy was spying on our photo shoot!)       :) 

    Hey guys! I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays. We are just preparing for our move down to Virginia, and things are a bit crazy for me. We do have packers and movers, but are only allowed to bring a certain amount of belongings. Everything else, I have to pack up to store at our house. I am really looking forward to exploring a new area, though!
The holidays were intense, too. We were in Stamford with family for about ten days, and every day we were doing something. Which, I am grateful for, because we got to see so many members of our family and spend time with friends. 
These photos are a last minute idea to play with my new lens which my wonderful husband got me for Christmas! 
The outfit:
The faux jacket is Forever 21 sold out     /              White Blouse  here        /      The jeans are Amercian Eagle, that I ripped myself               /              Shoes are H&M, similar here

Clearogen Review + Giveaway; Cleanser, Toner, and Acne Lotion

Hey everyone, today I have another review plus giveaway for you guys! As I told you previously, I have a ton of items I've been wanting to review and I wanted to do this one sooner, but I had to give it the fullest amount of time to really give a good honest review. I am talking about the Clearogen cleanser that I have been using since just about the beginning of November. So, without any more babbling.... Here you go!
I really liked this product and would suggest the cleanser, I only tried out the cleanser and the acne lotion but I assume with the toner, you would get even better results. You can find their products here on their website, or at Sephora. The Revivogen company also makes RejuveMD which is a skin serum specializing in reducing fine lines and wrinkles. It is another one I was gifted by the company, but have only been using it for about two weeks and need to give it a lot more time. I am really excited about this one because I am heading into my 30's (Aaaaaaahhhh) and wrinkles scare me, quite frankly! So that one will be coming up within the next two months. 

If you are interested in entering this giveaway, you can subscribe to the Youtube channel, and comment so I know who you are! 

Thanks for watching, thanks for reading and happy holidays everyone!!!

Denim Love

        So, currently, denim is having a moment. Jeans are a classic staple that never go out of style, but it has been a while since a head to toe denim look has been in style. Everything from denim shirts to full on denim boots have been seen on runways and in the pages of fashion magazines. Styles, cuts, and colors have come a long way but the 501 Levi's are still one of the most well known pants world wide. Have you ever wondered about the history of jeans? They go back much further than most people know.
        Levi Strauss originally came from Germany to join his brother in the dried goods business, where among other things they sold cotton cloth. One of their customers, Jacob Davis, was a tailor who ordered a pair of strong pants made with rivets that could withstand hard labor. Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis became business partners and patent the creation in 1873. At the time, they were mostly worn by miners, farmers, and cowboys.
        In 1914-1939, they gained popularity from western films. In the 1950's it was Marlon Brando that made the 501's super cool and edgy. After that, pretty much everyone hopped onto that train and hippies, rock stars, moms and everyone in between was wearing them!
       When I don't know what to wear, I always grab a pair of jeans, or jean shorts and I'm sure i am not alone in this. You also do not need to spend a ton on good denim! My favorite pair is from H&M and they were $10... on the other end of the scale I have also spent $300 on jeans, and I can tell you, it doesn't make a big difference. I have picked a few styles below from various price points that are some of my faves, especially the denim dress.

                                                         What is your favorite piece of fashion history?

                                                                                    Thanks for reading!

My Go-To Makeup with Purple Eyes

So here is my first make-up tutorial! I did not realize that in order to do a voice over I had to do it prior to uploading it to youtube, I thought Youtube editor would allow me to do that, but it doesn't.. so I came up with what I got. Also, I spaced and thought I had back ground music through the whole video, but I didn't. So the last half is in awkward silence. Oooops. I'm learning, though. Next time will be better, promise. 

      Stay Tuned for a review and giveaway of some amazing Clearogen and RejuveMD products!

Physicians Formula Instant Lash Extensions Eye Booster; Review and First Impression

So, I had received so many wonderful products from the simply stylist event in NY that I felt like I HAD to do some reviews! This is my very first time vlogging, and it was really a challenge. I give credit to all the beauty vloggers out there that make this seem so natural and easy. Hopefully it gets better. 
 I chose to do a review on the Physicians Formula Instant Lash Extension Kit for my first vlog. This kit comes with two tubes of product and one of them is a great black mascara and the second is a tube of leaf extension fibers. This mascara is paraben free, gluten free, hypoallergenic, dermatologist approved, and ophthalmologist tested. The price ranges from $10-15, depending on where you buy it. Physicians Formula is cruelty free, too! 
I enjoyed this product and it definitely gave me great lashes, if you like Younique 3d fiber lashes, this is very similar but less expensive. In my opinion, this looks a bit better, the Younique product looks too clumpy for my taste. 

Let me know if you guys would be interested in a giveaway for this product!
