What's in my Closet (What I wore to a casual wedding)

One of my best friends from high school just got married. It was a really cool ceremony and I got to see some old friends and classmates. I of course wanted to buy a new outfit but could not. Well I do have dresses, so I put a dress and crop top together and I was happy with my result.

After the wedding I decided to drive by my old high school and apartment where I grew up. We got coffee at a shopping plaza I went to all the time with my mom when I was a kid. I was going to go to the beach but we were overdressed and you have to pay now! I prefer the downtown Huntington Beach from the 1980's when it was a cute beach town. I wanted to share some of my photos below.

I also posted a picture from when I was a kid see if you can guess what year it is????

The Beauty Corner (Freebies for my Birthday)

Just in case you didn't know you can join clubs from different companies, on your birthday you get freebies. My budget for my birthday was $0 but I can't just let the day go and be sad. So I spent my birthday going to these places and getting gifts. This is what I got.

Sephora: Nars lip pencils Rikugien (Pink)  & Cruella (Red)





Sephora also hooked me up with a bunch of samples







Ulta: Urban decay eyeliner color Voodoo




Starbucks: Free Coffee any size. (Have the app downloaded already)


Panera: Free coffee and pastry (I got that the other day)

Red Robin: Free Burger (I got the Guacamole bacon burger, fries, ice tea and a ice cream sundae for $3.98)

Life is short if you don't have money or whatever you think you need to be happy there is always a way to obtain a little fun or luxury...

What's in my Closet (House of Paragon Jewelry)

I can't tell you how excited I was to find out I had won Jewelry from House of Paragon. When I saw kmeetsstyle original post on instagram I thought this jewelry is so me. Then I saw it was a contest! So I entered because I had to have these pieces. Then I kinda forgot about it. One morning I look on instagram and low and behold I won!

I won a leather bracelet with a delicate chain detail, a weaved bracelet that spells out hope both by House of Paragon. I also won an Womage Eiffel Tower watch which couldn't be more me.

 You can see other items from the collection by going to their site. I want to thank kmeetsstyle and The Mighty Muse for having this contest.

It was a cool day when I took the pictures so I decided on my black fringe top and this awesome red skirt I got for $3 at my favorite consignment shop.

What's in my Closet (Summer Blue)

When I did my purse post and looked at my bags, I noticed the biggest deficit was the lack of color. Avon has two bucket bags one yellow and one blue with matching sandals. I had a hard time deciding between the blue and yellow. I chose the blue since I do have a lot of blue and the yellow would get dirty faster. Well I love these two so much I am going to get the yellow too. The shoes are comfortable and they are cute flats with a zip back. The bag is a good size for summer and the strap is adjustable. It is a snap closure (I like zip top best) and you get 3 inner pockets one that zips. I styled these two new items with my old mark. maxi dress, which I never get tired of. The shoes also have little rhinestones they are small and add a little sparkle.

What would you style this bag and shoes around?



Dress: mark.
Bag: Avon

The polish on my toes is the mark. polish called futbol blue

The Beauty Corner (mark. Buenos Aires Collection)

Every year mark. has a summer escape collection with makeup, fashion and a new scent. This year they chose Buenos Aires for inspiration. Sounds good to me.

I got the eye shadow pallet, two eyeliner gels, two eyeliner brushes, blush/bronzer compact and two mini nail polishes. The pigments on the eyeshadow are a bit light, but it is for summer and you could dampen your brush to get heavier color. The color selection is really pretty too. I love golds so I wanted it just for that. The blush/bronzer has good pigment. The darker color is the bronzer, the lavender is for highlighting and the coral for blush. (FYI) These colors do have shimmer. The gel eyeliners I put in my kit for when I want to do fantasy makeup and they each come with a dual ended brush. The gels are easy to work with and waterproof. I like the brushes and they are a nice add to my collection. The nail polish colors are bold and beautiful. The bottles are mini .09 oz each. The theory is that you will want to buy or move on to another color long before you finish a standard size bottle of polish. Which we all know is true.

I am a mark. representative and I have been since 2009. mark. is part of the Avon company. I do post mark and Avon specials on the right side of my blog so when you are making a purchase you may get a discount or a freebie.


















I swatched them dry


The collection also has beautiful fashion and jewelry that you will want!
