Missing summer


Hope everyone had a happy weekend! I wanted to put together one last outfit that reminded me of summer, and in Vegas, it definitely still feels like summer (with the daily over 100 degree weather). I love this Kardashian Kollection dress because it fits a woman’s body extremely comfortably and the material makes the dress adjust to your body type. The dress is made of stretchy material and definitely feels comfortable to wear. The ruffle detail going down the skirt of the dress truly makes this dress unique. I paired this dress with gold rings and nude heels, but it can also be paired with black strappy heels and other accessories.

Outfit:

Heels from JCPenney here.

Rings from H&M. Similar here and here.

Barbie kind of mood


This post is in honor of my reaching more than 1K followers on Instagram! I’m SOOOOO HAPPY !!! This milestone calls for a special post so I decided to do a Barbie-themed post based on Forever21’s new Barbie clothes collection. I remember ever since I was a little girl I said I wanted to be Barbie when I grew up so it was fun to pretend I was Barbie for a day in this post. I had a lot of fun playing with balloons and organizing this shoot. I hope this provides some fashion inspiration to many of you! Love, Susy!

Outfit:

Sweater found here (Forever21). At first glance the material seems to be itchy but it is not at all. It is extremely soft and comfy!

Faux leather pants here (Kohl’s).

Slip on sneakers. Similar here (Kohl’s).

Fall Make-Up Dupes


Happy Friday readers! I am so excited to bring you my first beauty post in a series of beauty posts to come. Here, I show you how you can re-create an expensive fall make-up and nail polish look at a bargain prize. The expensive look adds up $134 while the MUCH cheaper and similar look adds up to only $34.89!!! Below is the final look and then a step by step process where half of my face is painted with expensive make-up and the other half of my face is painted with inexpensive drug store products-also called a dupe. Most of these products can be found at Nordstrom, Ulta, Target, and Wal-Mart. Now…Let’s dupe away!

#1 Eyebrows

B12

 

Left-I used the Anastasia Eyebrow Kit found here ($39.50). Right-I used the NYX eyebrow kit found here ($14.99). I must say that my favorite was definitely the Anastasia because it is smooth and extremely pigmented-definitely worth the money!

#2 Concealer (Before applying concealer I applied Physician’s Formula foundation found here-$14.99)

B15B14

 

Left-I used NYX concealer found here ($4.99). Right-I used the MAC concealer found here ($19). I have been using the MAC concealer for 6 months now and I thought there could be no better concealer BUT I must say I am in LOVE with the NYX concealer! It is drastically smoother than the MAC, it feels softer when applying it to your face, while the MAC feels thicker as you apply it.

#3 Powder (I applied powder after I applied foundation and concealer)

B13

 

Left-I used the new Covergirl Ready, Set, Gorgeous found here ($6.99). Right-I used MAC study fix powder found here ($27). I really only use the MAC concealer to special events because the powder is quite thick and it is supposed to provide ultimate coverage for an extended amount of time. I was pleasantly surprised when I compared it to Covergirl powder that Covergirl actually provides more coverage and is smoother on my skin. With MAC I tend to feel like I am caking on make-up and with Cover-girl the powder felt lighter and actually provided more coverage.

#4 Bronzer

B11

 

Left-I used the e.l.f. Studio Baked Bronzer in St. Lucia found here ($3). Right-I used the Urban Decay Naked Flushed palette found here ($30). My favorite between the two was definitely the Urban Decay palette because it was more pigmented so I used less of it, while the e.l.f was drastically less pigmented so I had to apply a lot more bronzer so that the effect would equal that of the Urban Decay palette’s.

#5 Blush

B10

 

Left-I used the e.l.f. Studio Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder found here ($3). Right-I used the NYX Powder Blush in Pinched found here ($5.99). Again, here, my favorite was the NYX blush because it was a lot more pigmented than the e.l.f. So, I use less and thus, it lasts me longer making my $5.99 investment stretch as much as possible.

#6 Lipstick

B8

 

Left-I used Wet N’ Wild lipstick (Black Orchid) found here and also at your nearest Target (93 cents ONLY !!!!!!). Right-I used the Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Color (Black Cherry) found here ($7.99). Here, I definitely LOVE the Revlon but I also LOVE the Wet N’Wild. They are both extremely pigmented and provide a surprisingly similar effect as you can see here; the left side of my lip has the Wet N’ Wild and the right side has the Revlon and you can’t tell the difference!

#7 Nail Polish

B4

 

Left-I used Wet N’ Wild nail polish in Burgundy Frost found here and at your nearest Target (99 cents ONLY). Right-Revlon in Bewitching found here and at your nearest Target ($4.99). Here, although the colors are similar you can definitely tell the difference but when you want to transition your nail color to fall and do not want to spend $5, spending 99 cents on a Wet N’ Wild nail polish gives you the same effect.

I hope you guys love this make-up look, I had tons of fun creating this fall look and experimenting with different brands of make-up!

 

 

 

 

 

Curls, bangles, and stripes


To start the week off I have put together a chic outfit revolving around nautical stripes with gold tones. I paired together nautical striped pants, with a midi shirt, black and nude studded heels and gold accessories. My favorite part of this look were the gold accessories and cat-eye sunglasses. My new gold locks have definitely inspired me to put together different looks and this is one of them. You can also pair the pants pictured here with a loose button-up and gold sandals or flats to make this a more relaxed look. I wish you all a happy week!

Fall is in the air


Happy Sunday loves! I am so sad summer is ending but am excited for the upcoming fall trends. I love wearing sweaters and boots! Some essential colors in my closet this fall are mustard, burgundy, and black. Here, I paired a mustard sweater with a leather skirt and pointy black heels. You can also pair this sweater with boots and jeans or leggings. I love how mustard makes any outfit pop and how leather makes any look edgy and gives it a fall vibe. Hope you all had a happy weekend!

Sweater from Old Navy here. Similar sweater here (Forever21).
