Sponsored Post: Chic Dorm Decor (Back to School)

0 Comments so far

You may not even think about it, but the decor in your home or bedroom says just as much about your personality as your wardrobe does. Everything from the design on your bed sheets to the accent colors in your room shows off your style. Whether large or small, your new space can definitely be transformed into a home, with just a little effort!

Small budget? — Spend your cash wisely: invest in multifunctional pieces such as a chic futon which doubles as a sofa and a bed.

Short on storage? — A trunk is great for storage, and can also function as a table! Some ottomans even have a storage space inside. Maximize your space by storing things vertically on shelves.

Sharing the same room with someone? — Use decor that incorporates both styles. If your roommate has a funky style and you have a more modern style, there are plenty of pieces you can agree on like a shag rug, contemporary lighting, or accent colors you both like.

Add some art: cool graphic prints and colors can definitely add to the stylish theme of your apartment. Try some inexpensive (easy-to-remove) wall decals, throw pillows, or framed photograph/painting.

DIY (Do-It-Yourself): Found an awesome trash can, but not the color you wanted? Paint it!

I hope you find these tips and tricks useful. Happy living! =)

Comments Off

I need this product, like yesterday! I don’t wear makeup (concealer, foundation) everyday, because it’s too much of a hassle. I just fill my brows and throw on some mascara to brighten up my face a bit. But, sometimes that’s not enough. LANCÔME’s Visionnaire 1-Minute Blur is a lightweight, oil-free skin-finisher that blurs skin imperfections in as little as one minute!

Over time, the product helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and make pores less visible. It provides a silky matte finish and is perfect for all-day wear.

Visionnaire 1-Minute Blur is allergy tested and dermatologist tested. It works well with all skin types including sensitive skin, and it won’t clog your pores.

This product has also received rave reviews at stores like Macy’s and Sephora (4.2 out of 5 stars, or higher).

Sponsored Post: Celebrate Spring with a ‘Wink of Pink’

Comments Off

Spring is literally right around the corner! Here in New York, we can’t wait for the warm weather to arrive. For most fashionistas in the US, spring is so much more than a change of season. Spring means there will be more color options available at your favorite boutiques and stores, as well as a great time to switch up your wardrobe and home decor. This spring, pink is the color on everyone’s lips: Add bright pink, fuchsia, magenta and more to your home and wardrobe. Kohl’s has gathered a collection of pink items for women, men, kids and home — add these pretty and playful hues to your day or stock up on gifts for someone you love.

I started my “spring cleaning” a few weeks ago and decided to redecorate my bathroom to look something like the image below. I didn’t choose any pink-themed items, but I did purchase a few red-themed pieces from Kohls.com (links are below). I purchased the exact red and black floral shower curtain shown below, as well as 2 rug sets. One red and one black, since I’m not sure which will look best yet. Nice look for spring, right?? Either way, Kohl’s has a great selection for just about everything. I can’t wait for them to arrive!
