Little Black Dress OOTD

Hello! So here is another OOTD post, but more importantly, I have some exciting news to share at the end. 

This is a classic LBD (little black dress) look that would be perfect for a holiday party you. In fact, I think that I am going to wear this dress on Christmas. 

This dress is super comfy and goes to about the middle of my thigh. I love how this dress is fitted, yet still pretty loose. I live where there is no snow and it is not that cold (the winter weather has just started!), so this outfit is better if you live where it is not to cold. If you need an outfit that will keep you warmer you could easily add tights or tall boots, or a cute cartigan and scarf combo and it would be super cute. 

I added a larger silver necklace that reminds me of arrows or a mini chevron pattern. For shoes I kept it simple and just threw on a pair of black converse. I also added a light pink, string bracelet that had a white rock in the middle and painted my nails maroon. 

Also, I have a coupon code to  The Black Tux>
 which has amazing tuxedos, especially for parties and social occasions. Just use the code THEBLACKTUXNYE2016 for $20 off on any order made by December 22 (sorry, I know that is soon). 

Dress  Shoes  Necklace (similar)  Bracelet (similar)  Nail Polish (shade: 480 wine stock)  Earrings

Alrighty, time for the exciting news I promised. [drumroll please haha] 
I am moving my blog!! I am going to start doing quality weekly posts (for real this time) for my blog. My new blog is still going to mainly focus on fashion, shopping, reviews, and my life in general. I will no longer be posting on this blog because I am going to be moving to a new website for a new beginning.  

Hope to see you all there (:

Unboxing~ Walmart Beauty Box

Hi! So today I have an unboxing/ review on the Walmart Beauty Box. This box is $5 and they come out with a new one each season. Apparently the samples are free and all you have to pay for is the shipping. This is a nice box because it is super cheap and all the products are inexpensive and sold at Walmart. I got 5 real samples and 2 foil packet samples. Let me know if you got this box in the comments down below. 

The first thing I got are these Simple face wipes. I have tried these makeup wipes before and liked them, so these will be perfect for traveling.

I also got the Schwarzkopf shampoo and conditioner. These are a decent size and I can probably get 2-3 uses out of each one. The shampoo smells really bad, like chemicals or old play-dough. The conditioner smells a little better, but still not the best. 

Just like last season, I got another Dove body wash. It is orange and has a light citrus scent. This body wash is the perfect size for a long weekend getaway.

The last real sample is pretty good. It is the Lady Gaga fame perfume. This perfume is unique because it is a black liquid. For once, the perfume sample does does not smell like an old lady perfume. It has a distinct smell, that is pretty good [but no vanilla], and the company describes it as a saffron like smell. 

Lastly, I got some little samples and coupons. I received the Maybelline fit me matte foundation sample and a coupon. So I never knew this was a thing and am really excited to this next product out. It is the Nivea in-shower body lotion for really dry skin.

I also got coupons for Covergirl, L'oreal, and Schwarzkopf hair products. 

Look at how beautiful my pool was today!

OOTD~ Maroon Sweater

Hi! Today I have another OOTD to give you some fashion inspiration. This is probably my last winter outfit for awhile, since it is already at least 70 degrees in California. 
Just getting photo-bombed by my dog, Sneakers

 I am wearing this thin maroon sweater, midnight-black jeans, and chocolate UGGS. This sweater is one of my favorites because I have been into the color maroon lately, and comfy sweaters are always a plus. I have minimal jewelry on, just [fake] diamond stud earrings. 
This outfit is perfect for a cooler day. It is a great casual day transition from winter to spring.  

Thanks for reading!

Huge Try-On Haul

Hi! Long time no blog, but don't worry I'm back now(:

Today I have a huge collective haul from Tilly's, Sephora, Ulta, Aeropostale and more.
So let's get started: 

Tilly's is one of my favorite stores and I got the most stuff from here. I was on the hunt for some spring and summer clothes [aka shorts]. 
Speaking of shorts, I got a pair of bright aqua blue shorts [I also got these in maroon and white]. These are the perfect length not so short that my butt is hanging out [ladies that is not cute] and not down to my knees. 
Another thing thing I bought was this shirt. This one is just plain black and crochet at the top with 2 tassels hanging down.  
I guess I was feeling a Coachella vibe that day cause I bought another boho tank top. This tank top is black with string straps that tie in the center with 2 tassels. There is a cut down the center [ I know scandalous... jk] surrounded by an Aztec kind of print.
I also got 2 packs of 5 rings. One pack has metal and jeweled rings and the other has brass and pops of color on the rings. I kinda love wearing rings everyday because I feel like they complete most outfits.
The last thing I got was a pair of sandals. Every year I get at least new one pair of sandals, and I figured I might as well get them before they get picked over. These are super cute plain, black strappy sandals. 
I got a simple, short black cardigan from Old Navy. Basic cardigans are hard to find and I had been on the lookout for a black one for awhile now. This one stops right where your jeans start and goes with a ton of shirts. 

I also got another pair of shorts [above^] froAeropostale. These are just your basic, plain denim shorts, which are my favorite type.

Next, I went to Target. I like Target's clothes, but never really get any from there. This time I found a plain, black maxi skirt, so I can finally get on the maxi trend (yay). 
So from Sephora I got the Tarte brow gel in the shade taupe. I decided to try this brow gel since I have some unruly brows. Let me know of any good tinted brow held in the comments below. I also got a pair of tweezers because they were on sale [and I thought I lost mine].

I am really excited for this next item. After wanting something for LUSH for so long I finally got something! I bought a bath bomb. Even though I am not the hugest bath fan, I had heard so many good things about their bath bombs [my friends had nothing bad to say] I decided to try one. I bought the Avobath bathbomb and it smells sooooo good. It is super fragrant and smells like a sweet avocado candy. 

Another beauty product I bought was the NYX bronzer from Ulta. This is a matte bronzer and it is the shade light.
American Eagle had their nail polish on clearance so I picked up 2 bottles. One color is a blue-green sparkly color and the other is a super dark purple.
