Ultimate Blockbuster - Collector's Edition
I bought this amazing collection of Sephora makeup; i am so happy i did. It has every color you could want. It is perfect for playing with your look and trying bold trends without spending tons of money on colors you will only use a few times.
Ill start with the eyeshadow. There are some cream eye shadows which i wasn't excited about until i realized how perfect they are as eyeliner. The powders are great, but i would recommend layering them to last longer.
Buy it at Sephora

Envied eyes are easier than you thought. Get envied eyes from Color On Professional. They have cream shadow that allows you to simply rub on perfection. These wild shadows are so cool it looks like you spent hours doing the pattern when all you did was rub it on, wow i really want these.
Check out sephora.com for a video on how to apply and make the color last.
If the cheetah and zebra are too much for you there is also a basic smoky set.
For just $25 you get 5 pairs of shadow patterns and a perfecting powder and brush.

Ok so, many people have been seen wearing bright polish this summer to name a few Rihana and Lindsay Lohan. Neon nails are so bold and perfect for summer.
Some brands with hot new neon lines are Essie, Orly, and Channel.
I love keeping up with polish color trends because $7 gets you a bottle of fantastic color that will be envied. I found this blog that is devoted to nail polish, well its actually lacquer but same difference. I got the images from it. Check out all lacquered up.

This outfit is perfect for a stroll down the beach or for going out to coffee in the morning. It is so simple yet so classy.
This dress is great because the thick straps allow you to easily wear a bra, without worrying how to cover up the straps.
This belt is skinny and can easily be worn at the waist to create curves or through the belt loops to dress up jeans.
gladiator sandals: simple and chick. What more can i say?
This bracelet is adjustable and can also be worn as a necklace or a belt, making it well worth the nine dollars.
Summer is going fast, be sure to enjoy it while it is here!

Fight breast cancer with these purchases.
Lucky Charms $25
Donated amount: $0
although, they did make a $2,500 donation to Susan G Comen for the cure.
Virtually all of Wilson's womens' golf along with a few products in other sports is the Hope brand which supports the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. There is no specific amount donated, but wilson says, "Your purchase of a Wilson Sporting Goods product in turn helps Wilson to maintain its ongoing support of The Breast Cancer Research Foundation."
I had trouble finding other products that support breast cancer. let me know if there are any other good products.

I really like Alloy because they have reasonably priced, fashionable clothing. They also sent out a catalog. I love getting catalogs because it is like getting a free magazine without the annoying, occasional amusing, adds on every other page. sign up to get one mailed to your house here
Here are my favorite outfits, all pieces available on Alloy.com and the high points of Alloy.com with emphasis added to my favorite piece of the outfit.
Vneck tee $13
This edgy men's wear piece goes great with straight or skinny leg jeans add a few girly touches such as a shiny belt and a sweet bangle and your outfit is complete.
White Denim Mini $20
I love the contrasting leather belt. it is so simple and adds a touch of class to the destroyed mini.
Alloy also has celebrity fashion articles such as this one:
Check out the leather belt on LC's white dress, kinda like the skirt above. i like it!

Polyvore is a great idea. You create a collage of clothing and pictures. The best part is there is a link of websites on the right side that takes you to the site the individual image in the picture is from. You can creatively show your personal style while you can get feedback on outfit ideas for others.
Polyvore is like cutting up your favorite magazines to make collage, only you can share it with the world. I wish I had time to put together pages as cute as these. I will try to put a few together, it is such a great way to display an outfit.

Calorie counting can be difficult, especially when eating out. Many fast food restaurants have started showing the amount of calories in their "healthy" menus, and even some sit down restaurants have created healthy smaller portions including the number of calories.
When your favorite food, such as a Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce
here is an example what you will see when you get a text:
yays: I got the text almost instantly. This service from Diet.com is perfect for when you are standing in line weighing the difference between your favorite and what you think is more healthy.
nays: The only downfall is that you have to sign up online at diet.com and you must be 18 to create an account, or have your parents make one and allow you to use it. They say that kids under 13 aren't even allowed to access the sight, I'm not sure why.
Remember: although everyone wants to be as toned as toned as Madonna, well maybe not that strong, but you are beautiful no matter what because you were created perfectly.

So, many Americans are stressed out weather it is from work, school or family struggles. It is apparent from the abundance of anxiety drugs, i found ten.
Stress has many bad implications including loss of sleep, strained relationsips, lower grades, and weight gain. None of these are positive things.

Spring cleaning is rarely fun but usually rewarding, who doesn't love a clean room? Here are some ideas to organize your closet.
1. Get rid of everything you haven't worn in the past year. Are you really going to wear that tee shirt you bought two years ago because you fell in love with it at the store, but haven't worn it since? Probably not. Get rid of it.
Some ways to ditch unwanted clothes:
- Give them to charity such as salvation army. Salvation army is a great choice because you help someone in need out. Find a Salvation Army here.
- Sell them to a resale shop. At Plato's Closet you get cash on the spot, the downside is that they don't always accept clothes. When they are accepting they are very picky, don't pay much for clothes, and usually take over an hour to sort through the clothes. Find a Plato's Closet here.
- Have a clothes swap with all of your friends. Go to someones house and have everyone bring some pieces of clothing that they are just tired of. It's a good excuse for a party and a free and easy way to switch up your wardrobe.
3. Invest in some organizational tools. Here are inexpensive ways to keep your closet clean and pretty.
This hanger is perfect for belts and scarfs. From Linens and Things its only $3.99, at that price you can't afford not to be organized. Buy it now.
These boxes are the perfect size for everything from DVDs to Books to headbands. They are only $7.99 for a set of two at Ikea. They come in Red, Green, Black or White. Buy them now.
This dress frame jewelry holder is a sophisticated way to organize your jewelry while showing it off at the same time. It is so cute it is worth the whole $59.00 at Pottery Barn Teen. Buy it now.
4. Be creative. You can organize without spending a dime and be Eco friendly.
- Instead of buying boxes, use old shoe boxes and use wrapping paper to personalize them.
- Wrap belts around the buckle then place a rubber band around it. All your belts can bee neatly displayed in a drawer.
- Use the hangers from the dry cleaners. If you find them too weak string some together with yarn.
