I think a photoshoot with candles was more fun than a photoshoot with me! These candles are really unique. They are from the Old Factory Candle Company and each one burns for 20 hours. They are hand poured in the USA with natural soy wax, self-trimming wicks and premium fragrance oils. The best part is they have 11 different sets to choose from!
The one I picked is called “Happy Holidays” and the scents are Candy Cane, Gingerbread and Christmas Tree. Yum!

Other sets include “Winter Wonderland,” “Romance,” “Fresh and Clean,” “Spa Day,” “Vacation,” “Coffee Shop,” “Man Cave,” “High as a Kite,” “New Born Baby,” and “Fifty Shades.” There are seriously candle scents for everyone!

The best part is that I’m doing a giveaway with a set of your choice! Enter below from now until Thursday! Just click on the link below and enter! It’s easy!

light waves with KISS InstaWave


Are you looking for the perfect gift for a beauty queen? Do you know someone who loves to style their hair? Well, look no further…this is the perfect gift! I was asked to try out the KISS InstaWave and I have to say, I was impressed.

The InstaWave is simple to use. You place a small chunk of hair at the bottom of the iron, and make sure it is secure.

Then, you press the Curl Dial with left/right curl directions  and it will wind your hair up on it’s own. No twisting your wrist to wrap the hair up. All you do is press a button and VOILA!

FullSizeRender

You simply hold the wand on your hair for 5-10 seconds depending on what time of wave you want. I held mine for around 3-4 seconds for beachy waves.

FullSizeRender

KISS InstaWave is an automatic and tangle-free curler that creates beautiful waves. It automatically shuts off within 90 minutes. The great part is that it features two different heat settings with a maximum temperature of 420 degrees.

FullSizeRender

See…light, beachy waves in under 10 minutes!

I really enjoyed this product and recommend it for anyone trying new ways to curl your hair. It may seem complicated at first, but after a few tries you will be a pro! For more details go to http://www.kissinstawave.com

In the United States, you can purchase the InstaWave at Target, Ulta and Amazon.com. If you live in Canada, try Walmart!

Try this out and let me know what you think!

be yourself, that’s all that matters

~~this is one of my favorite quotes by one of my favorite old actresses..don’t worry about what other people are doing or what other people are wearing, just be yourself. wear what you want, and set your own style up and don’t copy others all the time…just use them for inspiration sometimes but make your style (and your life) all yours and nobody else’s

~~have a great week!

How to make things look pretty and organized

Organization is an easy way to make products look pretty and neat. The first few pictures are of a silver tray I bought from Hobby Lobby. These trays are essential to making things look organized, but pretty. You can put as many or as little objects as you want. I chose a candle, some perfume bottles, a couple bracelets, my favorite sunglasses and a couple little objects. Silver trays are useful for nightstands, dressers or vanities. I have mine on top of my vanity, and it adds character and style to it.

The next couple pictures are of a little black and silver tray from Target. I put my everyday jewelry on it so it is organized and easy to grab in a hurry. This is very easy to buy, and put a couple little things on depending on what you like to use everyday or display.

The next pictures are my makeup organizer. You can buy these anywhere…Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, or TJ Maxx. I store a lot of products here, and it may look like too many, but they are essential for everyday use. These are easy to buy, and make organization very easy!

What do you think? How do you organize all your products?

following Fashion Week

My dream one day is to be apart of New York Fashion Week. Until now, I can only keep up-to-date on all the shows and street style. Newyorkfashionweeklive.com and style.com are my go-to sources for this week. You can watch the runway shows, look at slideshows of the collections and follow the day by day guide. I also follow a lot of blogs on BlogLovin such as Fashionista, Who What Wear, WWD, and bloggers that are in attendance such as Glam and Glitter, Sincerely Jules, and so many more. I suggest all you fashionistas look at these websites and follow some bloggers to get the inside scoop.

My favorite shows so far include Kate Spade New York, Jason Wu, Joie, Rebecca Minkoff, BCBG Max Azria, and Zac Posen. I suggest you all look at the slideshows and live feeds and see for yourself!

What are your favorite shows so far?

for all shopping addicts

A trip to the mall is either stressful or fantastic. Yesterday I experienced both feelings while shopping. I always stress about whether or not to buy things and almost always end up walking back into a store to buy it. The mall is one of my favorite places, full of clothes and shoes I want/need. I try to budget myself so I don’t blow everything I make but sometimes it’s hard.(We all know it is!) Luckily, lots of Labor Day sales are going on. C Wonder has 50% off all clearance items so of course you have to buy something! I purchased an outfit I will be posting this week. Nordstrom Rack has 25% off already marked down items, including some great designer denim. Nordstrom has new items that are 40% off as well. J.Crew, one of my favs, had 40% off clearance as well, so I bought a much needed basic from there. Free People also had 20% off their sale so naturally I had to buy a unique sweater I will be wearing in the Fall. Anyways, I encourage all you shopaholics to look at your favorite store websites, or actual stores, and be thrifty! Sale items are the best items.

This quote speaks to all of us who love to shop. I always think about everything I wanted and didn’t buy when at the mall, and it continues to “haunt” me. When in doubt, buy it online!

Have a great sale Sunday!

dressing for success

~~I haven’t posted in a while, and it’s making me crazy! I’ve been so busy with school starting that I haven’t been able to take pictures. So I will post an inspiration picture and a couple of tips.~~
~Recently I have noticed that some girls don’t try hard to dress well for class at all. I always try to look nice everyday. Dressing well makes me feel good about myself and it promotes a positive attitude. Dressing in a boring or frumpy outfit makes me have more of a negative attitude. My advice is when you are tired waking up for class, or work, always put on a cute outfit and you will instantly feel a little better.
