Today’s outfit of the day for some finally summer-like weather features this adorable “babes club” t shirt from Forever 21. I love the big pink lettering (it kind of reminds me of Barbie) and I find it fun and a little retro. I tucked it into my Levi’s Jean shorts for a casual summer day look.
I purchased this set on sale a little while ago on Sephora’s website but I hadn’t gotten around to trying it out. I’m a big fan of the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara so I thought I’d try out their Better Than False Lashes line of mascara. This pretty packaged set contains two products that are meant to be used together : a mascara and primer and a little white bottle of synthetic lash extension fibers that are meant to give the “false lash” look.
According to the instructions on the back of the box, the gold prime and seal mascara gets applied first, acting as a base- and then the little white bottle of synthetic fibers gets used second- attaching the tiny white hair like strings to your eyelashes. Lastly, you use the first product again – the mascara- to “seal” the fibers to your lashes.
I’ll give you a look at my lashes without mascara so you can see the difference the product made. It’s a little hard to see my own lashes as they are very fine and dark blonde so without mascara they appear very sparse.
P.S. I’m not naked in these pictures 😝 I was wearing an off the shoulder top-I promise. Also this is me sans any makeup, whereas the after pictures include foundation and highlighter.
– My lower lashes look longer than my upper lashes…
VERDICT: I’m pleasantly surprised! I didn’t think I’d find much of a difference compared to the use of normal mascara but I feel like this product gave me much more lash length than the Better Than Sex mascara does! My lashes didn’t feel any fuller but definitely much longer. I was also surprised at how easy it was to use and how mess free it was! Other products with lash extension fibers that I’ve tried in the past left tiny hairlike threads all over my cheeks and didn’t quite stay on my lashes. However, I found no problems applying this mascara and it stayed on very well! Although the fibers initially did not irritate my eyes or contacts I did find as the day wore on my eyes felt a little drier than normal. Other than that however, the product does do a good job of what it’s intended for which is making lashes appear longer than regular mascara.
Today was a second day of rain, hail, and cold, which is really out of the ordinary for June, even in Canada. This has lead me to wear a lot of long sleeves and pants over the past week, which makes me so sad because I have so many summer clothes!
Today’s outfit of the day was this casual black high kneck tank top from Urban Outfitters and these light blue distressed boyfriend jeans from Lucky Brand. I love Lucky Brand jeans; they are so comfortable and such good quality. Also- all Lucky Brand jeans have an insert under the zipper that reads “Lucky you” when unzipped which I find clever and amusing. 😂
I tied my jeans around the waist with a simple black leather belt from h&m which was on sale recently for under 15 dollars.
I finished off the look with a pair of pink mule shoes from a small boutique in California. They are made by a company called Qupid.
I’ve just discovered this song and I can’t stop playing it so I thought I would share it! I really love this song and I find both the lyrics and the melody entrancing. I had never heard anything by this artist before but after hearing this beautiful song and his incredible voice I am an instant fan of his. I’m a huge fan of Indie/Alternative rock and I’m always on the look out for new artists to listen to and I’m so happy with this discovery! I will definitely be adding more of his music to my ever growing ITunes library.
Some of my favourite lyrics from the song include:
“Talking ain’t as easy when you’re down
I know you know I’m tryin’ to find the words to say
You told me you would always be around
But now you’re gone, I know that we are not okay
I’m so afraid of growing old
So don’t you go and leave me on my own”
“Looking for my answers from above
The only home I knew was for me and you”
I’ve inserted a link to the song on YouTube so that you can take a listen or you are interested! 💕
Today’s outfit of the day features this adorable strapless sunflower patterned romper from h&m. It is super comfy and cute and best of all, it was under 20 dollars! An amazing purchase and I plan on taking more pictures in this outfit later on in the summer! Sadly I only got to wear this outfit for a short while today as it rained on and off all afternoon where I live and became quite cold in the late afternoon. : (
American Eagle has been killing it recently ! I’ve been in twice in the last couple weeks and not only were the prices on everything marked down, but their summer clothing collection was adorable! I found two adorable summer tank tops for under $20 each, and this lovely white maxi dress was on clearance for less than $50! I’ve been impressed with the quality of the clothing I’ve purchased there recently as well! Well worth the money! This dress in particular is very well made, with a crochet top half, and a very full middle and bottom – with no awkward see through skirt as I find is common in many white maxi dresses of a similar style. I had to get the bottom hemmed as this was a size small as it was the last dress in stock and I usually wear a size extra small as I’m tiny (5’0). I was able to have it hemmed without ruining the look of the dress which was nice.
Today’s outfit of the day is this gorgeous romper that I purchased in Marina Del Rey, California last year. The pattern is very beachy and fun and the material is thin which is good for hot days.
These photos were taken in sunny Marina Del Rey, California a while back, as the weather where I am today was not permitting me to take any outdoor photographs.
