This will help you be the fairest one of all

shopcustomvanity

If you are a make up and fashion enthusiast, you probably like to be in the know of the all the latest tools and accessories to help you create the right look. You want the best brushes and applicators to put on your makeup. You’re willing to splurge on high quality styling tools but most people forget two very important tools: The mirror and the lighting.

Your mirror plays a huge role in your final look because a bad mirror can lead to putting on too much makeup, using unflattering colors or missing small details that can effect the overall outcome of your look. Shopcustomvanity.com knows how instrumental good lighting and a good mirror is to achieve your desired style and thus creates custom order handmade vanities that help you create a flawless look.

There’s a reason why I’m so excited to share this online store with you. I have always envied models and actresses with “Hollywood vanities” because something as simple as a mirror makes such a huge difference in how you appear. In my place, I have horrible lighting. Everything looks dim or bright yellow. And I’m not the only one that has this issue. Many people have poorly lit bathrooms or bedrooms. This can lead to over compensating by wearing too much or too little makeup. The custom vanities that you can find at shopcustomvanity.com are just like the Hollywood vanities that you find in dressing rooms and at fashion shows. These are the types that are used by elite makeup artists and celebrities. These are the kinds of mirrors that will make you “the fairest of them all.”

How does shopcustomvanity.com work?

The website has several options to choose from and you can even request a custom size. Once you choose your mirror it takes 2 weeks for it be delivered because it has to handmade. If you are in the states you get free shipping. Now keep in mind that this is just a mirror and is not attached to a tabletop. I personally prefer this because it means I can place the mirror anywhere. You can mount it on a wall or on your own dresser. You can even simply lean in against the wall. The mirrors are made with a wooden frame and high definition glass. I also love that it comes with dual electrical outlets so you can plug in your hair curler or any other device into your mirror.

The type of mirror you use does play a big roll in your look which is why I recommend checking out shopcustomvanity.com if you are looking for a mirror that will help you create flawless beauty looks.

Why you should love LoveNathalie.com

Looking for the latest fashion trends to help build your summer wardrobe? Then you need to check out lovenathalie.com. This webshop is a one stop shop for this season’s fashions. But here are some more reasons for why you should love this great site.

1. Duty free shipping. If you’ve ever been stuck with a fee after paying for shipping, you know how wonderful it is to be able to receive your package without paying extra for it.

2. No ground shipping costs. Canadians can rejoice at the fact that lovenathalie.com offers free ground shipping! This is a big deal because in many cases Canadians get the short end of the stick when it comes to shipping fees, where they are often left with hefty shipping charges that take away from the bliss of online shopping. Thus, it’s great to know that Love Nathalie will ship your package in 3-7 business days for free if it’s ground shipping.

3. The hottest trends of the season. Fashionistas and trend setters will love this webshop for being on top of the latest fashion trends for the season. It’s the perfect site for those that want to look trendy, modern, and seem ahead of the fashion game.

4. Easy to navigate website: Site navigation is important for everyone. Clunky cluttered websites just aren’t fun to shop, even if they have great items. Thankfully, Love Nathalie has a simple clean and modern theme that makes browsing enjoyable.

5. Great videos to see how the clothes look and move in real life: This is perhaps one of my favorite things about the site. It makes it stand apart from countless other websites in the same field and category. For each fashion item, you get to see a video of what the clothes look like on. This is extremely helpful for an online shopper! How often have you bought something only to be disappointed that it was nothing like the picture? With a the fashion video you can better gauge if it will look good on you or how it look in real lighting.

6. Promotes a positive body image: It’s also important to note that the model used in the video is not overly skinny. Thus, you get to see how the clothes look on a woman who has curves. Often times, websites and magazines will use a model that is so slender that many women cannot relate and cannot imagine themselves in the clothes. With Love Nathalie however, you see that regardless of your body shape, you can and will look stunning

7. Win a giveaway! I saved the best for last. Lovenathalie.com is currently holding a giveaway with some lovely prizes that I would love to get my hands on. This is reason enough to check out the website.

I highly recommend visiting lovenathalie.com if you want the latest trends, at great prices. You can also learn more about the company by following their facebook page.

Why I love Jewelry Closet Collection

250x250Jewelry_Banner_Ad

 If you are someone that likes members only shopping sites then you’ll be happy to learn about Jewelry Closet Collection. Much like sites such as Gilt and Ideeli, you first have to sign up, or sign in, before you can browse this lovely boutique. Jewelry Closet Collection is stocked with a number of fashion forward, beautiful, and head turning jewelry to complete any outfit. Now, I’ll be honest, when I first visited the store front I was confused. But that’s because I was not familiar with the concept of members only shopping sites and all their benefits.

Shopping at a members only store like Jewelry Closet Collection allows you to find up and coming designers as well as trendy pieces at great prices. This is done by the weekly flash sales that the site holds. These sales are fun and really give you a rush as you search for the perfect piece to complete your look at prices you’d be hard pressed to beat. It doesn’t cost a cent to become a member, so you really have nothing to lose. Whats more, joining the site can save you a bundle on your accessories and jewelries. As a student, I’m always looking for ways to save. But I don’t want to sacrifice my sense of style to do that.

Jewelry Closet Collection is great place to find statement necklaces, sophisticated earrings, unique conversational bracelets and other charming accessories to add to your jewelry collection, your style tool kit and fashion wardrobe.

Shops like these make online shopping fun again. Pieces sell out fast, but that’s part of what makes it so thrilling. When you find and buy an item that is quickly going out of stock or you find a great deal on a beautiful designer piece of jewelry you feel victorious.

Maybe you’re like me and are new to membership sites, or you have always loved them; regardless I highly recommend visiting Jewelry Closet Collection. You’ll find amazing pieces and great prices.

Find Qaulity Accessories at Wholesale Prices at JewelryBund

Untitled #246

What’s the fastest way to change your outfit without actually changing your outfit? Accessorize. When I was doing my little black dress challenge, I learned that adding some jewelry or a cute scarf could instantly deceive others into thinking I was wearing a different a dress. Accessories also help to make your wardrobe versatile. If there’s one thing chic women have in common, it’s their ability to accessorize. For a while, I didn’t add too many accessories to my wardrobe because I felt they were expensive. I’d see a girl with a lovely necklace tying her look together and feel I couldn’t afford something similar. That was until I found out about jewlerybund.com

Jewelrybund.com is an online wholesale accessory shop that has a plethora of options to help you accessorize your outfits. On the site you’ll find earrings, bracelets, necklaces, and even hair accessories all at affordable and wholesale prices.

I’m someone who loves wholesale supply sites. It not only lets you find great items for less, they ship right to your door. You can save 50-85 percent on quality jewelry by shopping with jewelrybund.com. They are even willing to price match. If you find a company offering a better deal than theirs you can simply email or live chat them and they will offer you a lower price. There are not a lot of wholesale accessory shops that are willing to do that.

Another thing I like about jewelrybund.com is they stand by their customer service and allow the customers to get in touch with a real person should they need to. After all, the most important aspect of business is customer service. It’s one thing to get a great deal on an item, but what happens when you need support. Suddenly, that great price doesn’t seem worth it if you’re left without answers to your questions.

The only thing I didn’t like about the site is that I was not able to find the shipping price prior to ordering. I like to have an idea of how much my entire order is going to cost me, but I overlooked this minor flaw because the prices were amazing. A girl can buy enough accessories to wear the same dress all month and have no one notice.

There is so much to choose from that one can get overwhelmed, but the site is very easy to navigate and well organized. One of the pieces I immediately gravitated towards was the waterdrope style necklace. I love statement necklaces, and at less than $3.00 how can any girl pass it up.

jewlerybund

I get crazy over rings, so it was no surprise to me that I overfilled my cart with several from the site. Jewelrybund.com has some of the loveliest and most unique rings I’ve seen.

If you are looking for an affordable quick way to spice up your outfits, I highly recommend visiting jewelrybund. They have an expansive collection of accessories at wholesale prices.

Kate Dioneda Brings You The Feminine Edge

Bold statement prints and embellishments, beautiful feminine cuts, trendy textures, classic and timeless designs–all this describes my new favorite collection by Kate Dioneda. If all my style personas went shopping together, they could all easily find the right piece to create the perfect look thanks to this web boutique. Kate Dioneda is a newly launched online store that ships anywhere. But it’s more than just another webshop stocked with clothes; it’s a concept that is created by a designer who understands that women have multiple sides and enjoy portraying them through their clothing.

The site reads, “It is fashion and you… and your ‘other’ you,” and in many ways I agree with this. While no woman is solely her sense of style, we do use fashion as means of expressing and communicating how we want to feel and the “type” of woman we want to be perceived as. Personally, I love looks that merge the essence of femininity with the strength of a woman. Thus, it was no surprise to me that I connected with the designer’s mindset and fell in love with the clothing. The clothes allow you to live simultaneously within the stylistic realm of total feminine and boldly edgy–thus creating the feminine edge. As someone who often can’t decide what kind of woman I want to be on any day, I often opt for styles that let me exhibit both my “sides.” I believe a lot of women can relate, as many seek out clothes that make a statement without compromising their feminine charm.

There is a flow and unity to the collection that makes it easy to envision oneself in them. They seem to tell a story. It’s a story about a multifaceted woman who doesn’t let any part of her dominate. Each piece adds to the story, while telling its own personal tale in the process. I’ve yet to see a collection that looked so unified but catered to so many different types of styles. Rock, punk, retro, glam, classic, modern, whatever your style preference, Kate Dioneda has managed to create pieces that can be distinctly worked into various wardrobes.

What’s more, this online boutique is made-to-order. In an age of mass production and low quality fashion, it’s lovely to find a designer that still believes in the personal touch and bringing customers the highest quality.

I want to own this entire collection. It speaks to me as woman–a fashionably diverse woman.

This evening-ready blazer is perfect to finish off any party outfit.

Getting Style Inspiration and Savings from Hybrid Clothing

A fashion piece I always gravitate to are men’s tops. Even if I don’t wear them myself, I enjoy looking and seeing how guy’s work them in their outfits. When I came across hybridclothing.net I quickly began imagining the multiple ways the unique urban tops could be styled in not just a guy’s outfit, but my own. Men’s style and apparel inspires my own style a lot and I know a number of girls who love the comfort that is often found in men’s tops. The variety of Hybrid Clothing may not be on par with some shops, but this Winnipeg Canadian line has a number of great items for a guy’s wardrobe (or a girl that likes wearing guy’s tops). They offer t-shirts, jackets, tanks, vests, hoodies as well as accessories and button down shirts. I love the denim button down. This is a classic piece for any wardrobe and a must have for mine.

In addition to classic pieces such as the denim shirt, there are also unique items like the meow meow meow t-shirt, which would be a fun top to accessorize. It’s quite the conversation piece.

meow meow meow

Hybrid Clothing’s tops and accessories are really affordable. That was one of the first things that caught my attention. As a student, it’s important that webshops offer apparel that fits into my budget. I’m happy to say, I won’t be breaking the bank by shopping at hybridclothing.net.

Another thing I really like is that it is Canadian. The Canadian fashion world is often dominated by women’s apparel, so it was nice to come across a line that focuses on one of a kind urban men’s wear. They do ship internationally though with a flat rate shipping, so anyone in the world can get their hands on the line.

Whether you’re a guy looking for affordable unique men’s wear or a girl that likes the comfort of men’s tops, I recommend visiting hybridclothing.net.

Mall Haul and Confession

I have a confession: I don’t like malls. I have nothing against mall clothes but ever since I realized I could buy stuff and have it shipped to my door, the mall has had less appeal. But malls often have great sales, allow you to actually try the stuff on, and well, it’s nice to hang out with friends while looking at trendy clothes. Thus, for the first time in I don’t know how long I did some mall shopping! It was fun, though I don’t think I’d do it often. I still prefer online shopping or shopping at smaller boutiques. Below is a video of my mall haul.

Find Vintage Inspired Style on Pin-up Darlings

Pin-Up Darling

What’s naughty, nice and having a huge sale? PIN UP DARLINGS! Pinupdarlings.com is an online shop that combines many of my favorite looks onto one site. On the site you can find some 40’s glam, 50’s sweetheart dresses, 60’s hippie chic and even modern urban trends. There is something for everyone. Though the site hosts a number of vintage inspired clothing such as the Buckle UP MJ Kicks, it also has pieces that put a modern a twist on a vintage look or are very trendy and fashionably “today.”

The site is a little like modcloth and TOPSHOP rolled into one. Pin-up darlings isn’t just for girls who love vintage inspired clothing, it’s also for the fashionista that likes to play with different trends. From the downtown rock girl who likes to hit the clubs every weekend, to the girl who prefers throwing chic cocktail parties, you can fill your closet with just about every trend and fashion style out there. And right now with their end of season sale, you can do it for less. I have my eye on several pieces from their sale and new arrival section. I can’t take my eye off the Bow-front pleather dress and I’m in love with the Angular fitted little black pleather jacket. I’m not sure how long the sale is going to last, but items seem to be going fast. You can visit and shop the site by clicking here.

The Chic Side of Comfort

??????????????????????????

If there’s one thing I love, it’s comfortable lounge clothes. But here’s the thing, I don’t want to look like I’m wearing lounge around clothes. I still want to look put together and I like versatility in my clothing. Arianeatlass.com meets all these requirements. I came across the site not too long ago but it’s already becoming a favorite. Among my adored pieces is Pygargue, which is a hooded goddess dress with kimono sleeves. It gives me this image of a goddess on her day off.

There are a number of things I like about the design. One is how versatile it is. You can wear it to the beach over your bathing suit. You can, as I would, wear around town with some cute leggings. You could also wear it during winter with a turtle neck underneath. It’s a piece that can be styled in a number of different ways for different purposes.

I also like that it is made of bamboo. Bamboo fabric is extremely comfortable. It’s breathable and wearable for long periods, which would make this dress perfect for travelling. Bamboo fabric also has a natural sheen and softness that looks and drapes like silk but is more durable. This fact added to the kimono sleeve design gives one the opportunity to wear this dress as more than just a lounge dress. You can wear it out to a night club.

The style makes this one sexy dress, but the fabric is so comfy that you won’t be able to resist just kicking back in it. The Pyagargue dress is one dress I’d live in. You can learn more about the design and brand by clicking here.

Grayson Shop Keeps You Trendy For Less

missadelaide

My style resolution is to spend less without comprimising my look, and with the help of graysonshop.com I may be able to keep a resolution for once. I recently learned about this web shop and it’s quickly becoming one of my favorite online shops. It’s similar to shops like forever 21 and styleforless in that it’s young and fresh.

Graysonshop.com has better prices and cuter items, in my opinion. The Westertn Denim Floral Tie Front Shirt is so incredibly cute and I can’t wait to sport it this spring.

denimfloralshirt

While filling my cart, I didn’t see anything over $30, which makes it a budget shopper’s dream come true. Besides the great prices, I also like how it appeals to both my trendy and classic chic side. The site has pieces that are modern and hip but it also has staple pieces that one can build their wardrobe with.

It’s also a great site for those that want to test a fashion trend for less. I can’t even count the number of times I’ve wanted to try out a trend but didn’t want to spend a lot on a style fad. With graysonshop.com, you can experiment with your look without breaking the bank. Because let’s be honest, girls go through a lot of style phases and we shouldn’t have to overspend just because of this fact.

You can get $5 off your purchase when you sign up for their newsletter. Check them out if you want cute clothes for great prices!
