My FAVORITE Morning Fave Wash?

In the morning I'm one of those people that don't want to get out of bed. The only way for me to really wake up is by washing my face. I love washing my face with a face wash that you can feel working, that's why I love all the morning burst products. 
I can honestly say that every morning burst product that I've tried has woken me up in the morning. And I really do love all the other products but this product has been my favorite for one reason : the smell. The other products I've tried have worked but they had strong scents like citrus or mint which personally for me is too much in the morning. 
After trying this its the only one I use in the morning. It wakes you up like the other products but has such an amazing smell. This one is in Caffeine, Lemon and Papaya, and it honestly smells amazing. If your looking for a face wash to wake you up in the morning and that smells amazing you should definitely try this. I promise you won't regret it!

You can get this product Here !

Liebster Award!!!

Hello everybody :) Upon waking up this morning I saw a comment on my post from Shahrzad. In that comment she told me that she has nominated me for the Liebster Award! How exciting !!! It's amazing that I was nominated! Thank you so much! This is a great way to get blogs out there, each person who is nominated must nominated other bloggers with less than 200 followers and they must answer eleven questions that you give to them.

Shahrzad's Post ->http://blondeteaparty.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/liebster-award.html

My questions from Shahrzad:

1. What does being beautiful mean to you?
To me it means being yourself and your own style. To be beautiful means to be your own person.
2. What is your holy grail foundation?
Sorry to say that I don't wear foundation, only a little concealer.
3. When did you start wearing makeup and why?
I started wearing makeup when I was about 14 and all I wore was mascara, now I only wear concealer, mascara, and add a bit of color to my lips. I started wearing makeup because I liked putting it on to be completely honest with you.
4. What is your favorite cosmetic brand and why?
Covergirl! I love this brand, personally I think it's the best drugstore cosmetic brand.
5. How confident do you feel with no makeup on at all?
If I don't have time or feel extremely lazy I won't wear makeup , but I feel better with it on especially when it covers my horrible dark under-eye circle.
6. How do you find inspiration for your blog posts?
I write what I want, if it comes to mind I'll write it. 
7. What beauty trend did you dislike?
I feel like it depends on the person, I've seen people wear certain trends that I would never think to try and they rocked it, but to be honest I'm not to keen on overdoing animal prints.
8. What is your favorite fashion era?
I love the 50's fashion trends. It may have been a bit uncomfortable not being able to wear pants but I love love love their dresses.
9. How would you describe your day to day style?
If I'm not going out its my pjs and a simple shirt , if I'm hanging out I love tights with a long shirt, or jeans and a t-shirt, and I find any chance I get to wear love cardigans. 
10.City life or country living?
The city! I love it when you always have something to do and I love all the commotion of the city, all the shops and restaurants.
11.Where in the world would you most like to visit next?
London! I don't know what it is but I've always wanted to live in London.

Finals Week Finally Over!

If you live in the U.S. you know that this week was finals week. That's why I've been M.I.A. But Finals are finally over! It's a sigh of relief, yet anxiety because you won't know how you did until after regents week. Since I don't have any regents in January I get the next week off. 
If your not from the U.S. regents are tests that you take for certain courses. But Since I have next week off I'm gonna try to make up for my blogging M.I.A. I hope everyone did well on their finals and hope everyone gets a good grade on their regents. Talk to you guys soon. 
Thanks for Reading :)

Carrie Bradshaw Hair

I'm not sure if everyone is obsessed with the Carrie Diaries as much as I am, but from the first episode the first thing I thought was FLAWLESS. Carrie, which is played by Annasophia Robb is absolutely flawless. 

Yes, he makeup is on point and he outfits are amazing, but what I'm talking about is her HAIR! I am OBSESSED with curls, mostly because when I was younger I had practically similar curls to Carrie. 
My hair is still kinda like it used to be but hair hair is way to frizzy to leave natural. Finally I've figured how to recreate this hair. Sorry , that I cant post a picture but hopefully my explanation is enough. 
All your going to need is a curler from 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch depending on how big you want the curls to be. Make sure you don't use the clamp and just spin your hair around the barrel. 
However, if you have a massive amount of hair like I do it will take a while but don't worry its worth it. Make sure to use hair spray and if you want you can tease your roots slightly for more volume.

Again sorry I wan't able to post a picture but try it out and leave a comment below!

Dry Winter Skin

Thankfully I have pretty normal skin, but in the winter I get small dry patches on my cheeks. I didn't know what to put on my face because I'm the type of person who can't stand lotion on their face. So I tried the Garnier Moisture Rescue, and loved it! 
It doesn't  leave a residue like lotion usually does. Your skin just absorbs it and your skin immediately feels hydrated. There are other versions of this Gel-Cream for fry skin. So if you want to hydrate your skin you can use this one or if you have really dry skin you can use the one for dry skin. 
I definitely think this is a great investment especially in winter.  The best thing about this is that it lasts 24-hours. I really love this product. I definitely recommend it.

Velvet Tight!

I'm the kind of person who sticks to blue jeans and black tights. I really wasn't the type of person to try crazy colors or patterns, and never did I think I would wear velvet tights!
 But one night my cousin was over and had them on and they looked like to most comfortable tights ever. She convinced me to go get them and I can't tell you how amazing they are.

Garage- $22

This obviously isn't a picture of me, but this is pretty much what they look like. I love them!! They're comfortable enough to wear day-to-day, but if you wanna put a nice shirt over and add some heels you could wear it to a party. I honestly love these pants.
 And you could find them anywhere, I got mine at Garage, but I've seen them at Forever 21,Love Culture, and Mandees. They are definitely a great investment!
If you have a pair leave a comment below about what you think!
Thanks for Reading :)

New Years!!!!

This year I was lucky enough to go to two parties. On New Years Eve, I went to a family party, and on New Years day my extended family and I went to more of a formal party. It was a blast! There was tons of dancing, family, and fun! I wouldn't have imagined a better night.
 I thought I'd share with you guys my outfits for both nights, however on New Year Eve, I unfortunately didn't take any full body picture so I'll just put pictures of the clothes :)

New Years Day:

What I wore: 
*Red Dress- Forever 21
*Tights - Forever 21 

*Covergirl Flame out Mascara
*Garnier - Anti-Dark-Circle Eye Roller
*Covergirl Natureluxe Gloss Balm

My Cousin and I 

 New Years Eve:

Velvet Leggings : Garage

Sorry I couldn't find a picture of the shirt online but here's a picture of me that night.

My Brother and I on New Years 
Black and White Sweater - Macy's

I basically wore the same makeup both nights. Oh and by the way I totally recommend Velvet Leggings they are absolutely the most comfortable bottoms ever, and they don't even look like leggings. You can wear them to a formal even or just to school. Well that's all for now. 

Thank you for reading :) and comment down below what you wore on New Years!
