Every Girl Loves a Lil Sparkle

Just wanted to share with you guys one of my recent purchases because I'm totally obsessed with it and I can't wait to wear it! It's a grey sequined sweatshirt and it was only $16.99 at TJMaxx. J.Crew has a fancier version for $168 that's actually sold out online. So glad I found this one at a tenth of their price!

Imaginary Voyage - $16.99

J. Crew Sequin Studio Sweatshirt - $168

Clarins One Step Exfoliating Facial Cleanser

On my last trip to Sephora I picked up a free sample of Clarins One Step Exfoliating Facial Cleanser and used it for the first time this weekend and was pleasantly surprised with the results! Clarins exfoliating facial cleanser leaves your skin feeling so smooth and looking great! Its not something I would use everyday only because it left my skin red for a while after I used it but I would definitely use it every other day!

Clarins One Step Exfoliating Facial Cleanser - $35 available at Sephora

Happy Birthday Gaga!

Tomorrow our favorite pop-star and style icon, Lady Gaga, will celebrate her 25th birthday. Gaga certainly does not shy away from taking risks with her wardrobe. Whether she's rocking a 'hair-bow' or dark glasses, Lady Gaga always makes a statement.


Which one is your favorite?

Although, the hair-bow is not exactly my style I LOVE the cobalt blue, strapless dress shown in the middle picture above.

New Nail Trend

I am a huge fan of painting your ring finger a different color than your other fingers and do it often so when I saw this picture of Jennifer Hudson with her pinky and index finger different colors I was obsessed! Can't wait to try it!

Ray of Sunshine

This Spring/Summer season, colorblock is totally in! 
The combinations of bright yellow with a neutral color has been my 
favorite so far because of the unexpected pop it brings to an outfit. 
Check out some handbags below that have that pop of sunshine!

LuLu's Sunflower Fields Yellow Handbag - $64

MICHAEL Michael Kors Kingsbury Tote - $348

TopShop Yellow Colour Block Mini Crossbody Bag -£20 

Which Watch to Choose?

As you know with my previous watch post, I LOVE watches (especially those that are bright or oversized). I have had my eye on an all gold oversized Michael Kors watch for a couple months now, but a web search for "oversized women's watches" directed me to and a watch I need your opinion on. This is not quite an everyday watch, but definitely a statement piece. It struck my eye as being close to Emily Maynard's wrist full of bracelets also shown in a previous post.
What do you think???
La Mer Collections: Arizona Tobacco Multi Chain Wrap Watch ($110)

The Perfect Lip Gloss

The search for the perfect lip gloss can be a long and frustrating one. Between finding the perfect shade and finding one that isn't too sticky the process can become so frustrating that you are just forced to settle on one thats just not right. Well, finally after years of searching I have found the perfect lip gloss! Laura Mercier's lip gloss line comes in some fabulous colors, it's not sticky and it lasts! It's a little pricey but, it is well worth the investment! I have had my same tube for almost a year now!

Laura Mercier Lilac Lip Gloss $22

For those of you who wished you had a personal shopping assistant, your wish has come true. The iPhone/iPod app, ShopStyle, is just that. You can view all sorts of items from handbags to headboards and you can bookmark your favorites, set up alerts for when a certain item or designer collection goes on sale, and get more information on the item. It's a free app and totally worth the download!
Check out the screenshots below. 

Travel in Style!

The Jessica Simpson Collection has a great line of leopard luggage! The leopard luggage collection comes in a variety of sizes -from totes to weekend bags to 28 inch rolling suitcases! The luggage is unique and your bags will be easier to spot at the baggage claim next time you're at the airport! Make sure you check out to see more patterns and styles as well!

Nordstrom Rack

Nordstrom Rack carries merchandise from Nordstrom stores and at 50-60% off original Nordstrom prices. My biggest find of the weekend was Nordstrom Rack ONLINE! Unfortunately, the closest Nordstrom Rack to where I live is about an hour away so a chance to shop the Rack online is very exciting. Just like an "outlet" your favorite items may not be available in your size, but I suggest checking back frequently for new additions. You wouldn't believe some of the great deals I came across!!!

From Left to Right:
Rock & Republic 'Berlin' Skinny Stretch Jeans (Antila)- $53.97 (70% off)
Joe's Jeans Twill Cargo Pants- $27.97 (80% off)
JS Collections Cutaway Shoulder Chiffon Dress- $64.97 (60% off)

As you guys have probably already noticed, I'm obsessed with designer collaborations with mass retailers like Target and Kohl's. This week, I stumbled upon the Dolce Vita for Target shoe collection. The collection only features two wedge styles but they're super cute and super affordable at $29.99; check out the rope and cork wedges below.

Currently Obsessed With: Urban Decay Eyeshadow

I am currently obsessed with all of Urban Decay's line of eyeshadows! They come in a great variety of sparkly colors that are great to wear everyday or for going out! I just added the color Uzi to my collection and I am in love with it - its a great metallic silver color with silver sparkles! Unlike some eyeshadows, you can wear Urban Decay's all day and by 6 or 7 pm its just as bright and sparkly as it was in the morning! I use the Sephora Collection eye primer to help it stay on throughout the day!

Urban Decay - Uzi $17

Donate to Japan!

In the wake of Japan's devestating earthquake and tsunami, celebs and stores are doing their part in helping to donate! We re-tweeted In-Style's article on our twitter about the different ways people can help donate to Japan's tsunami relief efforts! Lady Gaga is selling "We Pray for Japan" wristbands (pictured below) on her website for $5! $250,000 has already been raised to support relief efforts. Also if you have any extra clothes laying around that you do not wear anymore, all Fast-Retailing- owned stores worldwide, including Uniqlo, Theory, and Comptoir des Cotonniers will have donation boxes where customers can drop off clothes to donate!

Protect Your Gadgets in Style

I recently got an iPhone 4 after waiting what seems like forever for Verizon to finally carry it. I absolutely LOVE it and have been in the market for a stylish yet sturdy cover for it. Kate Spade has great iPhone cases for $35 - 40. My favorite is definitely the black and white polka dot one with the pink trim. Check out some of the cases below! 

Kate Spade also has great accessories for 
other gadgets like the Blackberry and laptops.

Crazy for Emily

If you are a Bachelor junkie like myself, you were glued to the TV for the finale and After the Final Rose show last night. I don't think it was much of a surprise Brad proposed to Emily after she stole his heart early in the game, but I still teared up seeing the two together.
Although Brad and Emily both have great style; Emily goes above and beyond! She won my heart from dresses to accessories. I really like how she bunched a variety of bracelets together, it was an ounce of edginess on this poised princess.Check out some of her outfits from this season.

Posche Boutique

This past weekend I was in New Jersey so I decided to stop by Posche Boutique in Wayne, New Jersey. The store has a great selection of unique clothes, has great customer service and yes, it has been featured on Bravo's hit reality show The Real Housewives of New Jersey! The reason I am posting about my trip is because the store is having an amazing sale. All sale items are marked down 70% off the original price, they have a great selection of $58 denim (I got a pair of Current/Elliott jeans originally $207 for $58!) and 20% off their new spring line!! So if you are in the area I highly suggest checking it out!
