I went on a shopping trip with my sister, Christine, today! We picked up some really cute clothes (including the same floral-print shirt at H&M... It was buy-one-get-one-free!) and had a nice lunch. We tried salsa verde for the first time, and we're hooked! We also stopped by The Piercing Pagoda so I could get a third hole in my ears. I'm pretty happy with the result!
I was lucky enough to be the winner of two contests recently! Above, I'm sporting my new slim teal bangle from Mango Tree Bangles. I won this awesome accessory from Fashion Fling, a really great review and giveaway site! I love how simple this piece is.
I'm obsessed with the cute little snail brooch that I won from Fabric Strips & Ruby Lips. This blog, run by a cool chick named Roxie, is full of great personal style and fashionable DIYs. I can't wait to sport this little guy on some autumn sweaters! Hope you're all enjoying your weekend! Since I've started blogging a month ago, I've been posting what I wanted when I wanted: outfit posts every once in a while, photos from various adventures, recipes...
I've decided that I want to introduce a little order into Love and Look Pretty so, every Thursday, I'm going to be writing up a little post of the things that I love each week. I hope that I can share some cool things with you, and, in turn, you can share your favorite things with me! So, let's start it off, shall we?
"Now Now" by St. Vincent
My boyfriend gave me this CD earlier in the year, but this week has been the first time that I sat down and listened to it in its entirety (one thing to know about me - "shuffling" on iTunes is one of my favorite activities. Rarely do I listen to an album the way it is supposed to be listened to, much to my friends' dismay. I'm trying to change this, though). "Now Now" is the first track on the 2007 album, Marry Me, and it is so catchy. I've been humming it at work all day.
Into The Gloss
I've been a fan of this website for a few months now. Into the Gloss is a beauty website with tips and tricks from insiders in the beauty and fashion industry. Stylists, models, and magazine editors divulge their secrets and daily routines. "The Top Shelf" is a category where professionals discuss their regimens in great detail. I've learned about so many new products from this website! I also just think it's fascinating, learning about other people's beauty routines. Everyone has something different to share. Check this site out - you'll be hooked!
Endearing Heart Bow Top in Light Gray
This adorable top from Ruche Clothing makes me excited about shopping for clothes for the fall. Yes, I may be in summer mode right now (I still have sundresses on the brain), but every once in a while I fall in love with an article of clothing like this and it makes me think "I can't wait to shop for back-to-school!" I love the detail around the neckline and the sleeves. I think this would look super cute with jeans and simple flats. Perfect for a day of class and studying at the library (how studious of me)!
This outfit by Sorelle in Style
The combination of this romper with those amazing shoes makes me smile. And I'm in love with all of this jewelry, too! I'd love to add that red ring to my collection ;-) Hope you enjoyed some of the things that I love right now! What's caught your eye this week? Feel free to post links!2014-08-28
