What's In My Purse!

Hey Beauties!

When I first started getting into watching videos on you tube and checking out peoples blogs one of my favorite videos to see were the What's In My Purse entries. So I thought that I would share with you guys what I keep in my purse on a day to day basis.

So first things first my actual bag I got from Forever 21 while in Florida last summer and I have pretty much been using it ever since! I love that it's deep and can carry everything I need without being gigantic. The neutral cream and brown leather go with pretty much any outfit I could possibly think of and the purse itself came with a long handle that I use sometimes when I need free hands and could use a cross body. 

These are the things that I keep in the front zipper pocket, I like having a bunch of mechanical pencils and pens and highlighters right up front so I can easily grab them. I also keep my keys in this pocket because I hate standing in my doorway freezing searching in the bottom of my bag for keys, so I keep them here so I can grab them when I need them. Lastly I have my favorite lip balm, it is the Kehils #1 Lip Balm and I love that when I first put it on it feels like it restores any cracks or dry spots in my lips without being to sticky. 

                                       
The next group of things I have are the things that I keep in the larger part of my purse. First I have my sunglasses and their case, I just recently got these glasses from Forever 21, they are the cutest pair of cat-eye sunglasses and I am crazy in love with them! Next is my Phone and my I-pod, both are pretty old but I love them and couldn't imagine leaving the house without either one. Then I have my black studded wallet which I also just recently got from Forever 21, it is a small studded clutch/wallet but it is the perfect size and matches the rest of my things. Lastly I have my Mint-Eucalyptus hand cream from Bath and Body Works, I keep this stuff on hand because it has crazy stress re-leaving powers, any time I'm at school or out and about and get super stressed out I put a little of this on and I'm good to go!


Finally I have the things that I keep in my make-up bag. My make-up bag right now is just a small brown Lancome bag. Some of the things that I keep in here are a stain stick that I got from target, small mini nail files from Tweezerman, a mini hand mirror from Forever 21, Ulta eye liner, hair ties, bobby pins, a lace headband from Claire's, pumpkin scented hand sanitizer, Cashmere Glow hand lotion from Bath and Body Works, tea tree oil face blotting paper, and finally lip products. Apart from my Kehils lip balm I have a Mentha Mint lip gloss from Bath and Body Works, and sheer pink Revlon Lip Butter, an Ulta trial size lip gloss and my Charolette Ronson lip stick and stain. 


So these are all of the things that I keep in my purse! Comment below telling us what you think or send us a link to the things that you keep in your purse!

Spring OOTD (Again!) + My New Bike!

HELLO MY LOVES! <3

It seriously feels like FOREVER since the last time I blogged and I've really missed it soooo much!  I just wanna say sorry for the lack of posts but I've been pretty busy with school lately.  I'm gonna try my best to get back in the swing of things though!  I thought I'd just give you guys a little update and another spring OOTD (just cause) so enjoy! c:



Soooo, here's my outfit!  I know it's pretty similar to my last one but I thought I'd show you guys anyways :P  It's finally getting warmer here in Michigan and one day it got up to the mid 60's (which is basically shorts and t-shirt weather for us!) so I took the opportunity to bring out my favorite shorts!  This pair I actually made!  I got some ugly mom jeans, cut them to shorts, sewed lace on the front left side, sewed some ADORABLE lace bows on the back pockets (which you sadly can't see in this pic :c)  and tore them up a bit!  I paired them with a big, slouchy jumper from Target (along with a simple necklace), my new oxfords from Forever 21 and my little brown bag that I take EVERYWHERE!  I promise I'll try to change the next OOTD up a bit next time ;)
(For whatever reason I look kinda sad in this pic......)



I also wanted to show you guys something I think is really exciting.... MY NEW BIKE! I've been looking for a cute, vintage-looking bike for AGES and I finally found one that's not extremely expensive!!! <3  I can't even tell you how much I love my bike, it's just so cute!  I'll definitely be riding it everywhere this Spring/Summer!

I hope you guys enjoyed this quick post!  Feel free to contact me at any time because I'd loooove to get to know you and talk about cute things with you :3  

I hope you have a fantabulous week!

XOXO,
Rae <3

Manicure Mania!

Hey lovelies,

Since its spring, or almost spring, and trends are changing but one of the best most over looked accessories of spring is a nice manicure. I've been online scouring my favorite sites and I've pulled together some of my favorite spring trends in nail manicures!

Floral:
One of the best things about spring is floral and a cute floral manicure can be a quick easy way to add a pop of floral to your outfit













































Nautical:
The next style is one of my personal favorites because weather you're spending the day at the beach or running around a city this manicure helps to always keep a little bit of the ocean with you





Pop Of Sparkle:
The final trend that I love during spring is adding a hint of a bright silver or gold to a normally single toned polish.


So send us your pic of your favorite spring time manicure and let us know what your favorite spring nail trends are!

Beautiful Boutique







Hey beauties!!

Hey ladies, so its probably spring for most of you, but sadly it's still warming up here, and spring style means new trends and new adventures in where you shop! For me personally spring is my favorite time to hit up cute local boutiques.

 I have been visiting some family in Minnesota over Spring Break and while we we're in town we went to the Mall Of America, and it was everything you would want the largest mall in the country to be.  I visited a ton of different stores but one of the stores that I fell in love with was Lola. Lola is associated with BCBG and has locations in Minnesota, Puerto Rico, Nevada, Flordia, Texas, and California. The clothes at Lola had a similar feel to Forever 21 but were slightly more expensive. There was everything from cute tanks and dresses, to light airy scarves, to beautiful prom like dresses. You can find out more about this line by liking them on FacebookTumblr, or their website, www.lola.com.


Another boutique I am currently obsessed with is Francesca's  There is one at my local mall and they also have many other locations across the county. This boutique is filled with unique dresses, beautiful sweaters and some of the coolest accessories. I love shopping here because they rarely have to many of the same piece so there is less of a risk of having the same outfit as everyone at school which tends to happen when I buy popular pieces from larger chain stores. So check out their website www.francescas.com and let me know what your favorite pieces from their spring collection are!


So next time you're walking through the mall stop into one of the cute storefronts and find something for spring! Tell us which boutiques you love and your favorite boutique finds.
