I adore these lovely dresses from Anthropologie. They're all such pretty
shades of green and would be perfect to wear from the end of summer,
all the way through autumn!
 Plus, each one would look gorgeous with a thin gold bangle and this

Neon orange shadow and dingy white kicks

I don't normally like super bright eye shadow. But, model Klara Wester totally makes it work, especially since she pairs it with an almost tomboyish outfit and a killer smile. What do you think of her look? Would you or do you ever when really bright makeup?

Congratulations! We'll be in touch.

Thanks, Sara for hosting! And thanks everyone else for playing! 

What's your favorite way to wear your hair?

I love my afro, but sometimes it's fun to change things up a bit. How
do you typically like to wear your hair? In a long side braid? Just
your soft, natural curls? How about a fiery red top bun?
P.S. These bobbies would look pretty in anyone's hair!

Have a pretty weekend

A BIG thank you to Kariyah for awarding me the Lovely Blogger Award and to Sara for sponsoring this wonderful giveaway (click here if you haven't entered yet!)! This weekend entails filling out college applications and working on college essays. Super fun. But, hopefully I'll find some time to relax with my wedding shows or try out this stellar nail art. What are you doing this weekend? Diving into a good book? Petting a cheetah cub? Writing a sweet love letter? Do tell!

Wedding Album: Barbie and Ken Edition

I came across these images on Glamour and I couldn't resist showing them to you guys! Photographer Beatrice de Guigne came up with this idea and subsequently shot all of these brilliant photos. Look on...
What a genius idea! It actually looks like it could be a real wedding!

How AWESOME are these? London-based artisan Jennifer Loiselle uses handwoven grosgrain ribbon and mirrored perspex to hand-make ultra-modern necklaces, earrings, brooches and headbands. And the best part? The mirrored headbands can double as necklaces!

Too groovy.

Which one's your fave?

Emerald green maxi skirt

How fantastic are these photos? The fabric and color of the skirt are both so striking, and I just can't get enough of her black studded bag! It adds just the right amount of contrast to the soft skirt and tee. Plus, don't you just love her hair?

EDIT: You can purchase this gorgeous skirt here!

P.S. Don't forget to enter the giveaway!

Right this moment, I'd love to visit...

Paris! The City of Love & Lights. A few weeks ago, I saw the movie Midnight in Paris, and it reawakened my urge to visit this lovely city. I can't wait to someday ride a bike to a tiny cafĂ© where I'll taste a real Parisian croissant, and at sunset go for a cruise down the Seine River. Also, I'd love to experience the gorgeous architecture of the Notre Dame Cathedral and the stunning artwork at The Louvre!
And with all the gorgeous Parisian fashion to admire, I wouldn't be able to resist exploring such a charming city without these lovely flats.

What about you? If you could drop everything right now, where would you zip off to?
