My New Favorite Thing: Bib and Big Necklaces

I purchased my first "big" necklace about a week ago at Forever 21 and I love it. In fact, when I saw it in the store I picked it up and created an entire outfit around it. I love what a statement it is. My other neckalce was purchased yesterday in a boutique in Asheville, North Carolina. These necklaces were both steals for me since they usually are around $30-$50. I grabbed mine for $8.80 and $16! These neckalces add so much fun to any outfit and I think it's definetely a trend worth trying.

Outfit of the Day!

Today I decided to be bold with an animal print tunic, dark brown leggings, suede ankle boots, and a leather jacket. I kept jewelry simple with pearl earrings. My hair was second-day curl and I pinned it packed with some bobby pins. Enjoy :)

This leather jacket was purchased at Target and they aren't on sale anymore, but leather jackets are IN right now so they shouldn't be hard to find. I purchased this tunic/dress from Forever 21 at my local store. It was around $17 and I love it! It came with this belt but it tends to fall off.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Liner

This past holiday season, I picked up the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on pencil gift set that came with a full size liner in Zero and 9 other colors – Whiskey, Rockstar, Mildew, Gunmetal, Stash, Eldorado, Binge, Electric, and Ransom. The pigment of these colors is awesome, but this is expected with Urban Decay. I find that they aren’t great colors to apply to the waterline though. They don’t stay on the skin, but I do love using them for my upper lash line.
I will be repurchasing every color in the full size except for Gunmetal and Mildew.

Review: Maybelline's "One by One" Mascara

When I first picked up this mascara I was really excited because I absolutely LOVED their “Falsies” mascara. The “One By One” product was good, but it let me down. The product really does get all of your lashes and separates them nicely, but really that’s about it. I didn’t think the amount of volume on my lashes was as much as they advertised for and it gave you absolutely no length. All in all, I will keep purchasing my “Falsies” but I won’t be repurchasing “One By One” again
