Oona's OOTD

Hi! A few days ago I had my friend Oona over for dinner. I fell in love with her outfit and had her do some OOTD modeling.

 This is Oona. I love her to pieces, and she is one of my best friends.

 Oona has a naturally curly texture in her hair, and I'm in love with it.

 This is her full outfit. It's so adorable and kind of edgy.

 Oona loves bands (just like me), so she's wearing a band shirt for Echosmith. It's a simple black shirt that would look great on almost anyone.

 For pants, Oona wore black pants with suspenders attached. Honestly, I wish I could pull off wearing this type of things, but I can't. I'll just admire from a distance.

 For shoes, she simple wore some black combat boots. The boots sort of have a heel, so it's a cross between combat boots and heels. Totally chic.

 Oona's outfit was mostly black, so she changed it up with a silver treble clef ring. This is probably my favorite part of the outfit because I adore music.

 Oona loves singer Christina Perri. I'm not sure how to put this because I don't really know much about it, but I think these bracelets are part of a line called "Never Take It Off." I'm not 100% sure, so don't take my word for it.

 Oona'a nails were so cute! They looked like little lady bugs. I;m obsessed.

That's Oona's OOTD. I think it's super adorable, and I'm very sorry that I don't know where her clothes are from. I forgot to ask! Have a great day!

New Makeup Products & 2 Makeup Tips

Hello! Yesterday I went shopping with my mom, and we focused mainly on makeup. This post is to review my new makeup products and give you some makeup tips.

Bobbi Brown Broad Spectrum BB Cream with SPF 35:
I recently got this new Bobbi Brown BB Cream with SPF 35, and it's definitely a keeper. It goes on very smoothly, blends very well, and gives pretty good coverage. It's very easy to apply too. I 100% recommend this product to anyone who wants coverage, but something that isn't to heavy or unnatural looking.

Lancome Hypnose Custom Volume Mascara:
My mom needed some new blush, so we went to a beauty counter at Nordstrom, and the happened to be giving out mascaras... they gave my mom three. My mom gave one to me, and I though I'd try it out. It's not the best mascara in the world, but it does its job appropriately.

Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish Pressed Powder:
This is a great powder that reduced unnatural shine, but lets a natural glow show. This powder is translucent, so it isn't putting colored makeup on top of colored makeup. I'll talk about this in the tips section below. Overall I really like this powder, and it's a lot better than my current pressed powder.

Makeup Tips:
Now for the 2 makeup tips:

  • When applying product under your eyes, use your ring finger if you're using your hands because the area under your eye is very sensitive. Since your ring finger is the weakest finger, it's ideal for applying makeup in the sensitive spots.
  • If you're going for a bold lip, go for a muted.natural eye and vice verda. If you're makeup is too bold, it could look caked, too dressed up, or just distract from what you're wearing.

Walking the Dog

This morning I went for a walk with my mom and my dog, and here are the pictures! :)
 This is my mama. I love her to death, and I have no idea where I would be without her. I loved talking to her this morning on the walk.

 I looked up to see this beautiful gathering of trees, and I couldn't help but to take a picture.

 Gus will do anything for bacon. He's such a ding-dong.

 My amazing mommmy.

 I loved the way my camera focused in this picture. I don't know why. I just find it appealing.

 Once again, Gus is waiting for his bacon.

 Gus is a hound mix, so he has some hunting instincts--such as pointing.

 The trail is covered in plants, which is great because I love plants.

 I love the way the sun leaks through the trees and hits the ground. It creates the most abstract yet amazing patterns.

 Today is a gorgeous day. The sun is beaming everywhere.

 Gussy is being his typical self and smelling things to avoid leaving the trail. He always knows when we're near the car.

"It's like if you plant something in the concrete and if it grow and the rose petal got all kinda scratches and marks, you ain't gonna say damn, look at all the scratches and marks on the rose that grew from the concrete.. you gonna be like DAMN! a ROSE grew from the CONCRETE?"
-Tupac Shakur
I hope you all have a nice day!
