On a whim I decided to check out the Toms website today where I found their newest campaign. Now not only can you buy Toms shoes that gives a pair to children in need but you can also stock up on sunglasses that gives someone the gift of sight!

Buying one pair of Tom's glasses gives the charity Giving Partners funding to save the sight of one individual. 

Being the fashion obsessed blogger that I am I decided that my opinion on the idea came down to the glasses itself. If I liked the frames then I would support the new line.

I have to say I love the glasses. Maybe its my love of tortoise shell or the simple yet trendy frames but I definitely want a pair! My favorite is the cat eyes style. I think these are the type of sunglasses you can wear season after season. 

What do y'all think of this idea? Do you think that Toms should stick with shoes or do you like the venture into glasses?


Wet N Wild Pinkerbell Review

 Wednesday, May 29, 2013

One of the hottest trends this summer is bright pink lipstick. The bold but still feminine color can add a nice touch to any summer look. Ive been on the search for the perfect pink shade.

I love that today we can google practically any makeup brand or even item and get a review of a product that is thorough and helpful. I am to give the same kind of review today with Pinkerbell. During my search for the perfect pink lipstick I came across Mac's Viva Glam Nicki and fell in love. The only problem? The lipstick retailed for way more than I was comfortable spending.

Thats why I chose to get the awesome Wet N Wild shade Pinkerbell. It is somewhat of a dupe for the MAC shade but can stand on its own. The Wet N Wild MegaLast shade retails for only $1.99!! It is rich and moisturizing and the shade of pink is to die for. Im in love!

In general I like to buy quality over quantity so I tend to shop at Ulta or Sephora over the drugstore. I love higher end makeup just as much as the next girl but I have been so pleasantly surprised by every Wet n Wild product I have tried. They are great products and the prices cannot be beat. 

The pink gives awesome coverage and I love the simple tube it comes in. Pinkerbell is a beautiful pink shade. Its bright but not in your face and it is certainly feminine.

I highly recommend picking this shade up at the drugstore! Its only $1.99!

Bargain Shopper? Try an online Consignment shop!

 Tuesday, May 21, 2013

I consider myself a true bargain shopper. I love getting the rush that comes with finding an awesome item for much less than retail. Part of my bargain shopping interest include looking at gently used or preowned clothing, an outlet to find some seriously marked down goodies. 

Recently, when I was online shopping I tried to find some good deals on my favorite brands like Lilly Pulitzer. Thats when I found some of my favorite online consignment shops.

Thred Up buys consignment kids and womens clothing, shoes, and accessories. They are very picky and only select the best selection of clothing to put on  their webstore. The result is a wonderful site with some really great deals! To log on just click here.
Ebay is probably my most viewed site on my internet history. I prefer to be a buyer on the site than a seller but ebay facilitates some great transactions on both sides. Its the largest of the sites I am reccomending and listings are added the most often. It is a little harder to manuever to find great deals but once you get the hang of it you can end up with amazing steals!

Threadflip is a recently launched website that has a boutique like feel but is a community marketplace. It is so easy to buy and sell on this site but I feel that because its a community marketplace the prices arent quite as low as thredup.  

Have you bought or sold items to any of these online consignment shops? What do you think of buying items preowned?


Friday Fancies: May Flowers!

 Friday, May 3, 2013

Good morning Y'all! I am loving the beautiful weather, its starting to feel like summer!

may flowers

This week's Friday Fancies theme was May Flowers. Although I love floral and often wear it, I decided that I wouldn't put flowers into my look. Instead I mixed the pink lilly dress with stunning navy wedges. This summer I am loving daring color combos like the pink and navy! The gingham pattern is very on trend and I love the "tulip" design of the dress. Very fitting for a May flowers theme!

What are you loving for summer?
