Forever 21 Haul & New Wallet

Hey girlies!

Today I got myself some retail therapy. And where better place to go then Forever 21?

Guys don't get how girls do it... But it sure works. :)

I got new jewelry because it's obviously my favorite thing to buy! I love how it's so cheap at Forever 21. You can get the latest trends without spending a fortune!

• Blue antique ring was $4.80
I love how vintage and boho it looks. My sister hated it but I didn't care :) haha

• Rose ring was $3.80
It was so pretty and I just had to have it. Plus, it's gold! Gold is my favorite metal finish.

• Cloth Braid Bracelet was $4.80
I actually found this in a bin when I was checking out. It was so beautiful. The navy print with pink roses sold me! And I love the chain braided in between- makes it look edgy.

• Necklace with two yellow stones was $4.80.
As I was looking through the necklaces, this one caught my eye because of the two sparkly stones hanging off it. I quickly snatched it up before anyone could get it.

• Gold necklace with pink rhinestone heart was $2.80
Did I mention that I love anything with hearts on it? This necklace was no exception! It was so cute and the heart was pink! One word... Perfect!

• Silver Wallet was on sale for $9.87 at Kohl's.
I really needed a new wallet to carry to school. The one I was using was scratched up and dirty... Eww! So when I saw this one at Kohl's I knew that I had to have it! It was thin and light, with the perfect amount of space. I must admit though that the sparkles sold me :D

Enjoy the pictures!

Rimmel London Stay Glossy Lip Gloss Review

Hey beauties!

I have a little review for you, I know I haven't done one in a while :( ... sorry

As you may have heard already, Rimmel has released new lip glosses. They are called StayGlossy.
I was able to pick up two shades called Always Lovely (the hot pink shade) and Non-Stop Glamour (the nude shade.)

Being completely different shades, I was surprised that the texture was the same for both.

The hot pink shade didn't come out looking so hot pink. Instead it was a soft pink shade with silver sparkles. There was even a bit of a blue undertone.

The nude-ish shade has tons and tons of beautiful gold glitter. I was pleasantly surprised upon finding all that gold! The gloss took down the natural pinky-ness of my lips. It made then more neutral, but not zombie-looking. LOL. :)

Now for the formula... The company claims that you will get 6 hours of wear out of the gloss. When I wore it, it lasted about 4 hours, but it DID last through a whole meal which amazed me! It's not slippery but not too sticky either. Perfect medium! The smell kind of reminds me of the Moisture Renew glosses from the line. It's pleasant and not too strong.

Overall... I believe that these glosses are a must have! There is a lot of shades that you can choose from and I think that each one is around $5-6.

Enjoy the photos!

Forest Green Coat

Hello beautiful girlies!

I am so sick :( blehh... Literally lying in bed and making this post with my phone. This is an outfit that I wore a couple of days ago that I forgot to post. So here it is... ( btw, I have so much OOTD's on my phone that I still need to post.)

Sorry for the lack of posts! I know that I went from posting everyday to practically once every month. :( I'm really trying to get ahold of school and work.

Scarf: My mother's :D ( One of her girlfriends got it for her during Christmas... I'm not sure from where but it's so soft and beautiful!)
Coat: Kenneth Cole Reaction ( By far my MOST FAVORITE coat of all times. The very first button is supposed to be un-buttoned but it was so cold that day that I decided to button it all the way up.)
Boots: Black Uggs (I'm not sure what the style is called but they aren't the "classic" ones)
Jeans: Levi's

Love and bises (that's kisses in French)
Lera :D <3
