Gap is Getting Beachy

You know Havaianas, and you know Gap.
Put those together and you get Havainas AT Gap.
For $18 and in 6 classic shades, why not?
And according to Fashionista, you are able to actually customize your flip flops. I don't know much about it yet, but i'll let you know!

All Ruffled Up

If there's one thing that's absolutely flowy, and gives off a comfort, flowy, chill, vibe...then it's ruffles.
Ruffles aren't only making a statement in dresses, but tops, shoes, and swimsuits as well. Even with the tiniest hint of ruffles, it can make an outfit all the more cuter.

From the Spring 2009 Runways:

Leighton Sings

leighton-meesterYou know Leignton Meester and the always preppy, proper, Blair Waldorf in Gossip Girl.
But what you probably don't know, is that she sings. And she's pretty good at it! It's not just Little J that does more than act anymore.
Recently, Leighton paired up with the band Awesome New Republic and made a remix to their hit dance/pop song "Birthday." And I actually like it. Check it out.

Perfume or Parfum?

marc-jacobs-daisy-bloomJust in case you didn't know the difference between Eau de Parfum, or Perfume, or Eau de Toilette. Because I surely didn't. And I never really cared 'till now when I was reading Fashionista. Anyhow, thought I should inform you of information that could help you pick out the perfume type you'd like. :]

  • Perfume: can include 15-40% perfume concentrates. Purest form of a scented product=most expensive.
  • Eau de Parfum: contains 7-15% perfume concentrates. Most popular and most common form of perfume. Produces a long-lasting fragrance.
  • Eau de Toilette: contains 1-6% perfume concentrates. A light scent that doesn't stay on for too long. Originally intended to be a refreshing body splash to wake people up in the morning.
  • Eau de Cologne (Eau Fraiche): Pratically the same as Eau de Toilette, although it began as a fragrance combined with citrus oils.

So all in all, the lower the concentration, the lower the scent life.

thanks to Yahoo for the help.

Just the Right Scent

I haven't updated in a while, but it's spring break and I'm going to try to update like crazy!
So here's my find of the day, straight from Sephora
sephora girls nail polish
It's by Sephora Girls and it's pretty much scented nail polish!
I don't even know what to say. Except for the fact that one bottle is $2 and they come in the color/scents of Stawberry (light pink), Rasberry (fuchsia), Cotton Candy (white), and Blackberry (lilac).
Plus, they're all sparkly.
So I don't know, if you want to paint your nails sparkly and would love them to be scented. Go for it. Or you could just paint it over your favorite color to make it sparkly, yeah?
Your choice.
