Pic Inspo: Cara Delevingne Vogue Brazil 2014

Hope you all are having a lovely weekend! Recently, I was browsing through some fashion spreads and came across several beautiful photos featuring Cara Delevingne in February's Vogue Brazil. I thought the colors were a great preview for what to expect this Spring/Summer and couldn't help but put together some simple ways in which you might be able to incorporate the bright colors into your wardrobe through bright and bold accessories inspired by the spread!

As always, I welcome your thoughts and look forward to your comments!

Product Review: Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Shine

Happy Hump Day! Hope everyone is enjoying their Wednesday.
In the past, I've come across many positive reviews by fellow bloggers on various YSL products. However, due to the price point of the brand, I've never purchased a single item. Recently, after much research, I bit the bullet and picked up YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in number 12 Corail Incandescent from After about a month of use, I am finally ready to post a review on the product.

Although YSL has several lip products in their makeup line, I found the Rouge Volupte Shine to be the perfect balance between balm and lipstick. I chose Corail Incandescent because it is a versatile color that shows up as a lovely wash of color on my lips. My lips also tend to become especially dry during the winter months and I noticed my lips stay moisturized with YSL Rouge Volupte Shine. Despite the steep price point of $35.00 for the product, I would definitely consider purchasing other colors in the future and, at least for this shade, little dab goes a long way!

Have you tried YSL lip products before? What are your recommendations and favorite shades? I welcome your thoughts below!

Look for Less: Victoria Justice at Herve Leger Fashion Show

Hope you are all having a lovely Monday! When I first started blogging, I used to put together a Look for Less post. While some of the outfits worn by celebrities are really cute, I know my pocketbook is not deep enough to afford the pieces that make up the individual outfits. Therefore, I thought it would be fun to recreate the looks with more affordable pieces. I really liked this recent outfit worn by Victoria Justice at the Herve Leger fashion show in February and decided to recreate the look.

Subtotal: $89.00
