Style Icon Series: The Olsen Twins

I think all of my fellow 90's kids feel like we grew up with the Olsen twins. I used to watch Full House every Friday night. One year my cousin and I spent our whole summer vacation watching Mary Kate and Ashley's My First Video
They soon blossomed into beautiful, stylish young women. Many fashion magazines coined the term bohemian-bourgeois to describe their look.
In 2007 they  launched the Elizabeth and James clothing line which I absoutly adore. They have graced the covers of many fashion magazines(love the vogue covers) and have made a huge impact in the fashion world.
These are my all time favorite looks from the girls.


Our career is a dream. I mean, we get to act, travel around the world, and meet cool people. What's not to love!-Mary-Kate Olsen

 "I don't have to be a pretty face. I've done that, but now it's important and liberating to be on the other side of the lens. I don't like to be the center of attention anymore." -Ashley
"There are just some really beautiful people in the world. When you're walking down the street, or you're at a restaurant, someone catches your eye because they have their own look. It goes way beyond what they're wearing - into their mannerisms, the way they smile, or just the way they hold themselves."-Mary-Kate Olsen

We will probably always be in business together.-Mary-Kate Olsen
I check Style.com to look at the collections and love to poke around some of the other fashion blogs to see what's going on.-Ashley Olsen
I wear weird things sometimes. I like to drink coffee. Neither of those things have anything to do with who I am.-Mary-Kate Olsen
We've stayed really normal and down to Earth I think, and haven't let the success thing go to our head.-Ashley Olsen
I look at old photos of me, and I don't feel connected to them at all.-Mary-Kate Olsen
I'm the type of person who would rather stay home than get my picture taken-Ashley Olsen

Best Pinterest Inspired Summer Hairstyles

Every time I need a little inspiration, I get on Pinterest. I love these hot weather hairstyles that I recently discovered while pinning. I hardly ever wear my hair down in the summer, my hair is really long, thick and black so you can imagine how hot it is. So i'm always looking to try new hairstyles to sport in the summer months, these are my favorite pins for summer hair.

H&M for kids

Both of my sons are very fashion forward. With that being said, before I had children I had no idea little boys are so concerned with their appearance. Or maybe they took after us, after all my husband and I put a lot of thought into what we wear. My oldest son Jackson is the worst. If he doesn't like what outfit I pick out for him, he makes sure to let me know. Jameson is the almost as bad, he has to have his hair fixed every time we leave the house. 

Like every other american, I love h&m. There clothes and accessories are super chic and very affordable. It wasn't until last week when I received an H&M catalog in the mail that I realized they sold little boys clothing(be still my beating heart). Like everything else from H&M, its super affordable(cha-ching)! 


These are my favorite looks for the spring collection for boys.


Bare Minerals Beauty and the Beach Review

Last week I cashed in my beauty points on Sephora.com for this lovely sample set by bare minerals. The set is called Beauty and the Beach and it includes 5 pieces for a summer look. The set included marvelous moxie lip gloss in party starter, ready bronzer in the skinny dip, bare minerals ready blush in the natural high, all over face color in pure radiance and a sample of their lash domination mascara. So here is my take on the set: Here it is ladies!
Marvelous Moxie lipgloss in Party Starter- this is a darker, coral and peach color. It was very sticky but it lasted for a few hours. It matched the blush perfectly.
Ready Blush in The Natural High: This blush is a nice peachy pink color, it looks really shimmery in the package but looks more matte when applied. I loved that the color matched the gloss!
Ready Bronzer in The Skinny Dip- I used this to contour and sculpt my face and it turned out beautiful. It matched my skin tone very nicely. Its very similar to the too faced bronzers.
