Henna Obsessed



I went to the strawberry festival (yum!) and while I was there I got a henna tattoo by The Tipsy Turtle. I decided that it was a great time to get it because there was only a few days left of school and henna is known to bring luck which I totally needed for my final exams. Henna is temporary and lasts two weeks. If you've ever seen how intricate henna designs can get, it is super hard to decide what you want exactly. Luckily the artist, Amy, had an option called the "doodle special" which is a surprise design she creates from whatever flows out of her imagination. I am totally in love with my design and I really want to get another henna! I can't believe how many compliments it has gotten over the past few days. Have you ever gotten a henna tattoo?

How to Get Long Lashes and Full Brows?







Three months ago I did a post showing you the sweet gift I got from LiLash & LiBrow. If you missed it check it out here! I've been using them both and let me just tell you straight forward, LiLash has made my lashes grow super fast! LiLash conditions and promotes growth leaving natural, long lashes. LiBrow does the same thing and gives fuller brows which is currently all the rage in the beauty industry.

Posh Pickles & Preserves






This beautiful summer weather always has me in search of healthy and delicious treats. Posh Pickles & Preserves sent me their Raspberry and Redcurrant Jam to put to the test. I love a yummy breakfast to get me going, but I don't always have the time to slowly munch in the morning. Preserves are great in this case because it gives you many options.

Huge Announcement!

I'm so happy that the big news is official so I can share it with you! Last month I got chosen for an interview to become part of the Nordstrom Fashion Ambassador program. This program is for high school juniors and seniors who adore fashion. You get to learn about the industry and attend special events while even becoming an influence for the insiders at Nordstrom. 

I went to the store for an interview and got to chat with a few of the other girls. Everyone had the same love for fashion and we had so much in common! For the interview we had to create a fashion project that showcases what we have to offer for the board. I decided to use the blog since it's a full reflection of myself and everything I love. The interview itself was great and I was asked different questions about my community service and reasons why being on the board would be beneficial to me.

#GIRLBOSS

So if you haven't read #GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso (A.K.A. the amazing genius founder/CEO of Nasty Gal), you MUST add it to your summer reading list. Add it right this second and make it number one! I am a book worm at heart, but if you aren't just trust me because this book will have you crying, laughing, and everything in between. Sophia is not only a legendary #GIRLBOSS, but she made a path for herself the non-traditional way. She never planned to have a huge corporation, it basically found its way into her arms as she was doing what she enjoyed. 

Sophia grew up as a totally rad girl that grew up not fitting in (I'm sure many of us know that story!). She didn't bother with college and went from job to job, even stealing at some points. One day she created an eBay store that she named Nasty Gal. Eventually she ended up getting kicked off the site and she made her own online shop. Lets just say that the rest is history and Sophia has taken the fashion world by storm.

Doll White



Who doesn't want a Doll White smile? I know I do. I have always been obsessed with having white teeth after getting my braces off years ago. Doll White is a great new brand that gifted me their whitening strips. Now as you know there are tons of whitening treatments on the shelves and in your kitchen, but not all of these ways are safe for the enamel.

Trending: Zaful

It's finally June and you know what that means! School is almost out and summer vacation is coming in full force. That means that I am prepping outfits for all sorts of fun upcoming events. I am constantly online shopping, so pairing up with one of the trendiest online stores, Zaful has been so exciting. Obviously there are a ton of online shops, but only a select few have fashionable clothes, great prices, and free worldwide shipping. Yes, Zaful is one of these if you were wondering!

The sales on Zaful are seriously amazing. There always seems to be a great promotion going on. Currently the deal on tops are really good, so get ready to whip out your credit cards! I love how they cover every type of style, especially the bohemian-chic look that is currently all the rage. I picked out some of my favorites from their tops collection to share with you all. 









I adore this crochet knit crop top! It is so chic for the sunny weather. This reminds me of festival clothing for sure. Just pair it with some high waisted shorts and you are good to go. The best part is how effortless it will look on. I can easily picture this being worn at the fair, for a day at the park, concert, or beach.
