Pretty Little Picture: Nutella Outfit!

Source (

I am dying this is too cute! I love love love nutella! I am actually doing a project on nutella for my management class and we are supposed to track how the raw materials turn into the finished product. So in this case I have to track how the hazel nuts go through the process of getting cleaned and manufactured into a spread. Then I track where the palettes of nutella get shipped to like distribution centers and such, haha.. Sorry for the rambling but I am having a fun time researching about nutella and where it comes from. Hope this gave you some nuggets of wisdom! :)

Stay Smart,


*Did you know nutella is made in Canada?

Alice In Wonderland EOS lip balm!

My new favorite lip balm! Thanks to my sweet boyfriend for the random little something :) <3 EOS (evolution of smooth) is a company that makes products from lip balm to shaving cream. The company is wildly know for their lip balms especially. I am guilty of having almost all of their flavors haha this year they collaborated with Disney to produce a Alice in Wonderland limited edition collection. The Collection includes Pink (Watermelon Wonderland), White (Sweet Vanilla Nonsense) <--- surprisingly my fave!!, and Blue (Blueberry Potion). 

Overall thoughts, I like the collection :) There was one flavor that stood out to me the most which was Sweet Vanilla Nonsense! AHHH I love it! As for the watermelon flavor, its good kinda reminds me of summer fruit a might be the similar packaging lol but its definitely second place. Lastly the blueberry flavor I have not tried.. I opened it and smelled it and I guess I don't like the smell of blueberry, it smelled a little like little kids lip balm and it was quite strong. I can definitely pass on the blueberry but I will use it if I have nothing else haha Great collection, if you are going to buy it is a great deal for three for the price of $7.99, the price of a normal individually packed one would be $3.29! So awesome deal! 

Stay smart,

Sephora Haul

Hello pretty girls, here comes a haul! This is the first of several so keep your eyes peeled for more to come! :) haha I stopped by Sephora a couple weeks ago and picked up the Sephora Favorites Eyeliner Sampler Kit and my birthday present from them as well! Enjoy!

What I Got:

Sephora "Draw The Line" Eyeliner Sampler:

-Sephora Waterproof Retractable Eyeliner-Glitter eyeliner crayon-Full Size
-Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil-Very creamy/smooth glide-Sample Size
-Smashbox Jet Set Waterproof (Gel) Eye Liner-Easy application/Smooth-Full Size
-Kat Von D Tattoo Liner-Felt tip brush-like pen-Sample Size
-Urban Decay 24/7 Liquid Eyeliner-Finest tip super skinny!-Full Size

Probably the best value sampler kit, this kit was only $28 and came with 3 full sized eyeliners that are usually $20 a piece. With that being said this is such a great value and perfect for people just getting into makeup *ahem* me lol It gives you a sample of every type of eyeliner: pencils, gel, liquid, pen, and retractable. So I highly recommend this kit if you are just getting into makeup like me. It gave me a cheaper alternative to buying each product separately and not knowing whether I would like them. The sample sizes are deluxe size so you get a good amount to use for about a month so I am quite happy ! :) 


Sephora Beauty Insider Birthday Gift from Sugar!

-Sugar Lip Treatment
-Sugar Lip Tinted Treatment in Rose

Both are sample sizes!

Hope you guys liked the little haul! More to come! :)

Smart Tip: How to clean foggy headlights

Hello pretty girls :) guess who found a cool tip on how to clean foggy headlights? I did! This will be part of my Smart Tip series of tips and tricks for everyday problems ! So let's get started! 

Things you'll need:

-Old Toothbrush(es)

All you need to do is wet the dirty headlight and place toothpaste on the toothbrush (like you are going to brush your teeth) haha make sure to place the toothpaste on the plate so you are not contaminating your toothpaste tube. Just go ahead and start brushing the surface of the light with circular motions to get the foggy lights cleaned off. The gritty toothpaste against the foggy lights will scrub off all the buildup. I have used a headlight cleaner from the store that was $10 and I got the same exact results as using the toothbrush! Smart huh?! let me know what you think!

Stay Smart,

Breaking news! NARS is coming out with an Andy Warhol inspired collection! The makeup brand will be mixing makeup and pop art for this limited edition holiday collection! The collection will be paying tribute to man behind the movement of pop art, Andy Warhol, whose paintings and artwork of Marilyn Monroe and Cambell Soup cans are some of the most recognizable pieces of all time. His other famous painting Flowers will be recognized center-stage in the NARS collection. The collection will feature variations of the painting in different colors as shown above. Palletes will be starting at around $49, so if you want to snag anything from this collection I say, SAVE UP! NARS is a high-end makeup brand however since this is going to be a huge collection prices will be  much more steep then usual.

Back To School

Yes, I know it is that time of the year again...SCHOOL IS BACK! I don't want to go back like many of you, but I see going back to school as a fresh slate again and that we can begin a new and turn a new leaf. I guess my main reason to be excited to be back at school is the many many opportunities I will be be able to use all the clothes I bought over the summer and wear them for once. I'm excited for the mixing and matching of everything and creating totally different looks with the same outfit but with different accessories. With all this talk of starting a new let me share my goals for the school year, and maybe I can inspire some of you to start making goals for yourself this semester. My goals this semester are to, aim for a 4.0 gpa...i've never gotten one I really want to try hard this year and get what I need to done and take initiative when studying and doing hw so I do not procrastinate, 2nd goal is to read far in my college career I only started actually reading my books last semester...I bet I can get a grade higher with putting the extra effort into studying and reading, and last but not some money, as a poor college student, I don't work during the school year because I am afraid of taking my focus away from my school work, all my focus should be on school. I get really side-tracked through out the semester and find myself wanting to buy things when I should be saving my money instead... I guess thats it my three main goals I want to accomplish...I think the most challenging one would probably be getting a 4.0 haha well I can try, if I get a 4.0 gpa I will buy myself a Michael Kors watch as shown above! or something on the expensive side so I can motivate myself haha idk I wanted to make a deal with myself in the event that, that happens haha..WOW this is a complete ramble post..sorry lol well what are your goals this school year? Let me know!

Outfit made on my Polyvore! Check it out :)

Hurley Warehouse Sale 2012

Happy Saturday! Last week I went to the Hurley Warehouse Sale! This is my second warehouse sale and definitely not a disappointment :) The sale started at 8:00am and we got to the warehouse at about 7:40am..We really didn't worry about a huge line lined up like the Obey warehouse sale but did expect some people to come. When we got there we were 6th or 7th in line so not a long line at all. This was such a different experience then the Obey sale, we got in line and were let in right at 8:00am. Like the Obey sale, we were given trash bags to carry our clothes and goodies we picked up..the sale we pretty much the same set up as the Obey sale, HUGE boxes and bags full of clothes, the girls and the guys clothes were separated into two rooms, so my brother and boyfriend and I separated so we can get what we needed done fast and efficient. What I really loved about this sale is that we did not have a time limit like the Obey one, we got to take our time and really look over what we picked up and search for. They basically had everything there from dresses to board shorts, they had plenty of stuff to pick through. Overall thoughts, I didn't find much from the swim suits and tank tops, which I was hoping to find stuff from, but I did snag some high-quality basics :) I mean you can get basic T's dirt cheap at forever 21, but those shirts will only last you a couple months..before getting faded or shrunk from the wash lol with that being said,

Here is what I got:

Black slouch crop top- Warehouse sale price: $10 Retail: $29 (similar) Buy here
US Open of Surfing v-neck T- Warehouse  sale price: $10 Retail: $22 Buy here
White v-neck T- Warehouse sale price: $10 Retail: $19.50 Buy here

Overall another successful warehouse sale! Can't wait to go again, no wait and no time limit haha it was soooo much faster then the Obey sale, we were in and out within an hour, where as the obey sale was almost 4 hours lol..I LOVE WAREHOUSE SALES!---stay smart and go and find a warehouse sale near you and get some good deals ladies :)
