The Best Anti-Aging Product

FullSizeRender (4)

There are so many fabulous skin care brands and products out on the market but the BEST Anti-Aging Product is a fabulous big pair of sunglasses! I wear sun glasses pretty much every day and even when I go out to work or errands and it’s cloudy, I keep and extra pair of sunglasses in my glove box in case the sun comes out. As you all know,  I live in Southern California and the light is often bright and blinding a lot and my eyes are sensitive in the sun and don’t want wrinkles anywhere, especially around my eyes that can cause “crows feet,” which I never plan on having so I never leave home without my sexy shades plus a sun glass case to keep them clean and not scratched.

   IMG_1991There are so many styles out there depending on your look or mood but I definitely recommend the  larger framed sunglasses so they cover up your sensitive eyes and lower the risk of wrinkles.

This advice works for both men and women. Even my  pinup cat eye glasses protect me eyes.

I love part 2 of this shoot! ENJOY!!!!

Springtime Style on a Budget

I recently had another guest blogger spot on my girlfriend Sarah’s blog, https://lifewithlilred.com/. You all remember the fun style swap her and I did, her as a pinup rockabilly chick and me as a preppy princess and I always love collaborating with her. 

This morning she posted the blog I wrote for her spring edition on her site and it had such a nice look and turn out that I wanted to put up my post here as well.  The topic of course was Spring and I decided to write a blog post entitled, “Springtime Style on a Budget.” Here it is. Hope you all enjoy and make sure to follow my blog if you aren’t already and to check out my fabulous girl Sarah’s blog as well.

SPRINGTIME STYLE ON A BUDGET:

If you are yearning for some new spring style items to add to your wardrobe but can’t afford or don’t want to buy new clothes or accessories, here are some ways to celebrate springtime without hurting your bank account:
1. Affordable Shops – If you are wanting some new floral clothes or just a new item in spring colors, check out shops like Ross or TJMaxx. They get new cute tops, bottoms, and even shoes for each season plus have designer items with prices that are a steal. Sometimes you have to scour the clothing racks for the perfect thing but you are guaranteed to always find something that you’ll love.
2. Accessorize – You can celebrate and update your spring fashion with cute little accessories such as hair flowers, floral head bands, scarves, jewelry, and more. Stores like Claire’s or similar places carry an enormous array of cute seasonal accessories for great deals.

3. Makeup – If you don’t want to go crazy with a new wardrobe just for spring, you can celebrate the season with your makeup. This time of the year, you can find pastel and springy colored makeup like eye shadows and lipsticks in pinks, greens, and pretty shimmery colors. You don’t need to go to department stores or even Sephora if you don’t want to or are on a budget. CVS and Walgreens drugstores always have a huge selection of great quality makeup in every color that you can imagine for amazing prices.

4. Hair – If you’re interested in trying more of a punk or rocker look for spring, you can buy clip in extensions in an array of different colors almost anywhere, including online. Or you can get hair chalk, which is temporary and can be found in drugstores and beauty supply shops. You’ll definitely have your own original look for the spring, while utilizing the “it” colors like jewel floral tones and pastels.

5. DIY- If you’re an artistic or creative person, then your spring style ideas are pretty much endless. You can use your talent to make your own items and accessories with affordable supplies from places like Jo-Ann’s or other craft and fabric shops. Some examples include chokers made with silk ribbons in floral colors with cute charms or your own flower hair pieces, brooches, and corsages.

My Gothic Mystery Bag

img_0903

This evening when I came home from work I found a special treat in my mail box. I was so excited. It was my Gothic Mystery Bag that I ordered last week. The bag was from Dysfunctional Doll and it’s a called a ” Gothic Mystery Bag,” because when you open it, you don’t know what surprises you’ll see inside. Each box is different and contains at least $50 (usually more) of apparel, jewelry, purses, and more. When I saw that the mystery box was available now, I thought it was such a fun and cool concept. It’s also perfect for a Halloween present or other occasions Because every box is different, it gives a nice personal and special feel to it.

Here are the items I received tonight which I absolutely love. I can’t wait to rock them out work tomorrow. There’s not one thing I don’t like or wouldn’t wear or use.
