Messy hair don’t care

Messy buns are so cute and have that effortless look. But they really aren’t all that effortless! My hair never stays in places and there’s pretty much nothing I can do to it besides straightening or curling. However, I finally found a great tutorial on pintrest for a messy bun.

Black Booties

I think we can all agree that shoes are a girls best friend <3 Booties are so hot right now and I recommend every girl have a pair in her wardrobe. These are from Forever 21, one of my number one stores to shop. Though I’m not in-love with F21 quality in shoes these are super cute and fit a tight budget.            xo Allison

Hey everyone! So I need to just quickly rave about the online store Tobi you MUST shop there.. Like right now… Go buy something. Oh! And also your entire first order is 50% off! Just use the promo code tobi50. I recently bought their cabin fever knee high socks, I’m in love, and knee highs are a must this spring. PLEASE BUY SOMETHING FROM THEM YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED. xo Allison

Bronze eye

Hey ya’ll! I haven’t posted anything in a while, sorry about that. Here is a super quick and easy bronze eye tutorial. I can not take credit for this, this tutorial is found on the back of Maybelline Modern Metallic eye shadow; that is also what I am using today. This literally takes me not even three minutes to apply- it is just that easy! this is what I wear when I really don’t have time to take forever on my make-up, anyone can do this!

Step 1.

First take this base color and apply to the whole lid and brow bone.

Step 2.

Secondly you take the gold and apply it on your entire lid and only half of your brow bone leaving part of the base coat showing near your brow.

Step 3.

Next take the bronze shadow and also apply to your lid and into your crease.

Step 4.

Lastly take the brown shadow and cover your bottom lid. After you add liner and mascara you are finished! It is effortless but looks the opposite :)

Over-sized Cardi

Image

I am absolutely in love with oversize cardigans. Not only do they look great but can be pulled of by almost anyone. The one I am wearing in this picture is a high-low tribal print cardigan. They look great with tall boots, or even short ones. This cardigan was bought at SheInside- but I do not recommend buying anything from there- it took me almost a month to receive it. However, a couple places such as Tobi, or Forever 21 sell thing very similar. Lastly, I like to accessories this look with only a long necklace. :)
