iOS 7 tips and tricks: hidden secrets and new iOS features - Opinion - Trusted Reviews

I recently updated to iOS 7 and I will admit that it has taken me a while to get used to it, but now I'm in love. Let's chat about my favorite features, shall we?


September 26, 2013

I love Essie. Their colors are just so beautiful, and extremely long-lasting. (I have the second color, and it is literally the best gray I have ever tried.) 

These are some of my favorite colors for fall and winter.

He First Loved Us

September 25, 2013


Love is such a powerful word, that is quickly losing its meaning through overuse. People can "love" everything from an actor to their baby to Swiss cheese. But I'd bet if you asked them if they were willing to spend the rest of their life with that Swiss cheese, you'd get some funny looks.


September 24, 2013

I'm sure you've all noticed that I have a penchant for shiny, sparkly things. I also love PAPERFASHION, a beautiful blog full of illustrations (most with crystals or glitter). 

These Are a Few of My Favorite Kitchens

September 23, 2013

"When the guests bite, when the burns sting, when dishes make me mad..." (I know you just sang that in the proper tune.)

I really love kitchens. They become the heart of the home, and it's really one of the most often-used places in your space. I mean, a girl's gotta eat, right? Why would you not create it to be a beautiful, stunning haven? 

And then you won't feeeeel so bad!


Five Loves

1) Hooray for Pantone confetti! (I actually made some and then mixed with glitter. That's a little bit of happiness, folks.)

gold balloons

2) Shiny golden balloons!

3) Now that is some ice cream!

Oh, Coats & Jackets

September 19, 2013

i always love a full skirt

Yes, it's almost that time of year again. Layers, scarves, coats, jackets, and boots. Ring a bell? It's soon going to be fall. What is more fall-y than a coat? Honestly, I am really looking forward to being all bundled up. That warm and cozy feeling usually lasts until about January or February, when I find myself longing for the sundresses and sandals of July.

Life's busy. Let's just look at cat pictures. Happy Wednesday, friends.

Natural Makeup

September 17, 2013

Contour and Highlight via Once Wed

I don't know about you, but I personally love looking fresh-faced. There's just something about that dewy, natural glow that I have always loved to try and achieve. All you really need is a good concealer, bronzer, illuminator, and mascara. (Maybe lip color or stain if you want.)

Don't get me wrong, I love me some bold makeup trends too. (Like this one!) But there's just something about simple, effortless looks that speak to the purist deep down inside colorful glittery me.

What say you? Are you in for the glow or do you love your lipsticks?


A Love Note From God

September 16, 2013

Love Note from God.
Do you know that there is someone who loves you so much that they would die for you? We all know those stories about a guy who gives up everything for the girl he loves. There is a very real person Who would (and did) give up EVERYTHING just for you.

Budget Fashion: In the Stores

September 13, 2013

It's easy to hunt for bargains online, but what about in a store? While there are obviously places to shop where you can get things at a cheap price, there are also places where you can get nice things at a cheap price.

Budget Fashion: Secondhand Style

September 12, 2013

When you were a kid, you probably got lots of hand-me downs. Your cousin, your siblings, older kids you knew, everyone was giving you their old clothes that they grew out of. Sometimes you got things that didn't work. (I was once gifted a blue velour sweat set. Powder blue. Oh yeah baby.) But other times you got really cool pieces that you wore for years.

Budget Fashion: Thrift Stores

September 11, 2013

When some people hear the word "thrift store", they get scared. They think to themselves, "Oh my gosh, I can't wear clothes other people have worn!" Honestly, for a long time I felt the same way too. It grossed me out that the adorable dress may have been worn by someone else. But you know what? I finally got over it. 

Budget Fashion: Ebay

September 10, 2013

Ebay is one of the first places I look when hunting for a piece that is either too expensive, exclusive, discontinued, or out of stock. For instance, when I first heard the news about the ever-elusive Miu Miu glitter oxfords (which are unavailable on Nordstrom), I turned to my good ole friend Ebay

Budget Fashion

September 9, 2013

High-end designer pieces are really special. Unfortunately, they're also really expensive. We all covet that beautiful Celine bag, but who is willing to shell out thousands of dollars to bring one home? 

This is where budget fashion comes into play. You want the quality pieces at a low price, and that's a good thing. With a little digging and thrifty shopping, you can get those Jimmy Choos at a price that makes you and your wallet happy.

All this week we'll be exploring the world of the thrifty. Grab your bargaining hats and let's go!

Pink Lace + a Cat Sweatshirt

September 5, 2013

recreate this outfit w/ my cat sweatshirt
Cat Sweater

1. Harvey Nichols pencil skirt | 2. H & M sweatshirt | 3. Marc Jacobs button down | 4. BCBG clutch | 5. REISS shoes | 6. Forever 21 ring | 7. Charlotte Russe bracelet set

I love cats. Whether or not I would actually adorn my body in a sweatshirt with a cat on it is no contest. Of course. (Just don't wear like a cat purse or something with it or you run the risk of looking like a crazy cat lady.) I took a little bit of inspiration from the outfit above and restyled it in my own way.

Will you be wearing a kitty or two?

Fifi Lapin

September 4, 2013

I love bunnies. And I love fashion. Then I discovered Fifi Lapin, a beautiful blog featuring the namesake bunny with a passion for fashion. The planets all aligned, people. All was right in my world.

Who knew that a rabbit could rock couture?


September Wishlist

September 3, 2013

1. The Hip Chick clutch | 2. Sole Society shoes | 3. Modcloth necklace | 4. J. Crew tee | 5. ASOS trainers | 6. Target scarf

For some reason September seems purple to me. Just another one of my weird color associations, I guess. I love those little sneakers, they are perfect for going to the gym in. (Whenever I take a class at the gym I am reminded of just how very uncoordinated I am.)

Let's make this September the best yet!

Three Glittery Manis

September 2, 2013

I love using glitter in my manicures, even if I do regret it when it comes time to take it off. It's a bitter cycle, folks. I put it on, knowing full well that in a week or so I will be grumbling at myself for doing so. But it just looks so cute!

Happy Labor Day!
