Under $20 Clothing & Accesories! Dresslily try on Haul!!

Hi Lovelies,

I’m back with another collaboration post to add to the collection! For the past month I have been in a recent collaboration with Dresslily, an online clothing & accessories e- commerce platform that sales affordable fashion, beauty, and other items. I have a few items that I have selected for the summertime especially, and all items are under $20, I know! So, grab your coffee & relax, because I’ll be showing you the pieces that I picked out. I will leave the links to the products in case you get an urge to make a purchase! I got you!

The first item is this Green bomber jacket that I brought for $19. This has to be one of the cutest jackets that I purchased off the site, it’s a lightweight material that is great for the summer weather, and the material is in no way stretchy; so I really encourage you to buy a size up. I love this jacket it is military styled and this green just looks great with so many color combinations.

The next few items that I have were all accessories, nothing too special, but what’s an outfit without shiny accessories!


I picked out this leather belt for $5. I really like this belt, I really have been into the whole retro mom jeans phase, and the outfit isn’t giving the feels I need until I have a belt & tucked in blouse.

Alloy Buckle Leather belt | $5

I also purchased these cute fishnet ankle socks for $4. I am slowly, but surely building my stocking collection, and I’m not talking bout Christmas! These fishnets looks so cute with highwaisted jeans; skirts, and other summer bottoms.

Now to the drip of the outfit! I purchased a few jewelry pieces. Like really, who doesn’t love jewelry? I brought 2 sets of layered necklaces; one set is a silver multi cross necklace that cost $3 and the other was a gold multi necklace w/ face art design for $3. I love these necklaces, they are so chic and just draws so much focus to your outfit. They are so feminine; yet edgy.

Lastly I brought some earrings a black pair of pin styled earrings for $1. These are so chic, I seen these so much and I had to have a pair, they are like edgy 90’s fad. Last I brought a gold ear cuff that just seemed beautiful to go with my set of piercings.

Urban Decay VICE lipstick

Urbandecay

HI Loves,

So it’s no secret that Urban Decay is a HUGE brand, not only that, their VICE lipstick collection has me hooked. The collection varies in mattes, creamy, and satin shades, that has over 100 shades varying from nude to the most vibrant Blue.

When shopping at Ulta I literally get overwhelmed by how many shades are on the shelf, and by the end of the day my arm looks like a piece of art. Recently, I brought 4 shades to add to the collection, and I’m here to share this moment with you guys.

I brought the shades Heroine, Moshpit, Spiderweb, and Back talk, all the shades are different finishes.

  • Heroine/ Blue ( Comfortable Matte)
  • Moshpit / Deep Berry tone ( Cream)
  • Spiderweb/ Satin Red ( Cream)
  • Back Talk / Mauv-y Nudew/ pink undertone ( Comfort matte)

The packaging itself is gorgeous, it makes you excited for the shade inside. The lipstick comes in a gold, and silver gunmetal type packaging, and being that Ruby Rose is the spokesmodel for the brand, I can see the correlation. I love how the lipstick almost looks like a bullet, and how the shape of the lipstick tip is angled in a way that can be applied to the lips comfortably.

When it comes to the formulas of the lipsticks, I find them all to be easy application, I think when people think MATTE, they think “tug n pull” but the mattes in the collection are very smooth when applying and doesn’t take many layers to see pigmentation. The Creamy shades are my favorite, only because it feels like a gloss, almost comparable to the TOO FACED melted lipsticks, these shades are also buildable which is good for transitioning from day to night.

I hope you enjoyed my review, on the URBAN DECAY VICE lipsticks, if you like reviews like this be sure to “LIKE” this post and “comment” if you’ve tried this collection. If so what’s your favorite shade?

Jan Marini’s Hyla3D | Spring Renewal

hyla4

Hi Loves,

Skin can be a sensitive subject, for me personally. I have stage 2 eczema as well as highly sensitive skin, So summer time activities does not start until I have every skin care product to protect me from the wonders of the HOT sun, and summer heat.

Jan Marini Skin Research is one of the most respected brands in professional skin care. JMSR has formed associations with some of the world’s leading physicians and research scientists to develop cutting edge solutions to today’s most common skin concerns. JMSR has introduced a host of technological firsts, has been awarded numerous patents and has published multiple independent peer-reviewed studies on it’s products.

When I got the chance to try Jan Marini skincare skn renewal, I was a tad on the fence, because wrinkles have never been a huge problem for me, but the benefits of the Hyla3D goes beyind wrinkles. Hyla 3D contains (HA) Hyaluronic Acid, which is an ingredient that addresses skin problems such as; Hydration, increasing collagen and restores youth. Great benefits AMIRIGHT!!

I added this product to my skincare routine for a month and a half, and found that this product works really well.

The Hyla3D has a very liquid formula that is not at all thick and blends really well into the skin. After washing my face, and using my skin oils, I use this product last, and it feels so nice on the skin. Because the product absorbs in the skin, it feels moisturizing on the skin and as it dries it feels almost matte, but not drying on the skin, what I like most is the consistency in the product, it doesn’t leave behind any residue like some products that can get really filmy.

When they say a little goes a long way, their not kidding, it only takes one pump and it spreads evenly on the skin, so you can’t possibly miss a spot.

Hyla 11

So final Results:

The product works well, it does take at least a month to start seeing results, but you can feel a difference in skin texture after using this product. My skin feels extremely hydrated, if you don’t have time for the whole “skin routine’ you can just wipe your face and use this product alone. I think its good to try it with your skin routine, and by itself, to see which works best for you, this is just my opinion, because not all skin textures are the same.

I hope you enjoyed this post, have you tried Jan Marini’s Hyla3D skin renewal? How did it work for you? Let me know in the comments, feel free to let me know your experience- Be sure to “LIKE” this post.
