Nordy Girl Favorites

DSCN0505

I have a bunch of beauty products and one accessory to tell you guys about today…

Nail Products

I previously tried samples of Bubble White, and finally decided to get the jar so that I could soak my nails on a more frequent basis. I love this stuff because it is a quick and easy way to prep your nails for an at home manicure. Bubble White cleans your nails and softens your cuticles, and it literally works in 5 minutes. Amazeballs! As for the hand cream…I was previously stuck on Soap & Glory’s Hand Food, which I still love, but I didn’t realize that Silk Elements sold a hand cream that is comparable and much more affordable. What I love about this particular hand cream is that it smells amazing and moisturizes my hands without making them feel greasy. And for a little over $3…Yes, I’ll take that! Lol…

Make Up

Lately, my make up has been super easy going: Brows.Mascara.Lip Gloss. These glosses from Sephora and Revlon have been giving me that super shiny look that I love. Unlike mac lip glosses, they are light…No crazy thinkness here, but a lot of shine, which is exactly what I need. And for my lashes I’ve been obsessed with this Lash Potion from Revlon. OMG yall!! The volume and length that I get from this mascara is unreal. I use at least 3 coats when putting on my make up. Lol…

Nail Polish

Pastels and bright pinks!! I’ve finally ventured away from blue (cream) nail polish, ladies…I thought I would try something a little different from what I usually wear. These three polishes are jellies, meaning that they are a bit on the sheer side but are buildable, and can easily be layered with glitter nail polish. Ever heard of a “jelly sandwich”? Well, that is when you put a layer of glitter in between two coats of jelly nail polish (I’ll be sure to post an example of one this week)…Well, these polishes are perfect for that sort of thing. Here are swatches of each:

Accessory

Finally, I have been dying to tell you all about this eye glass case from Nordstrom’s Anniversary sale. This is the only thing I bought from the sale and I am so in love with it. I swear I would probably buy anything that has “Nordy Girl” on it for the phrase alone. All I can say is this case is sooooo me…Period…

All Products Mentioned:

I hope you all enjoyed this post…If you’ve tried any of these items, let me know what you think of them. Talk to you all soon! xx

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Preview: Accessories

I took a trip to the Nordstrom in Annapolis, Maryland on Thursday evening with my Mom, and was not wowed by much of what I saw. She left out of the store with 4 items and I left out with none! Shocking, isn’t it?! Lol…There are a handful of things that I liked but wasn’t willing to buy. One item that I am still contemplating is a Marc by Marc Jacobs Wallet, which I’ve included below.

I was expecting to purchase a rose gold watch (the best looking one in the sale is listed below as well), but a lot of the sale options this year looked cheap. Not sure what that is about but whatevs…But as far as accessories go, here is a preview of some things I thought you all may like:

What To Wear: Black & Gold

Since I knew I was going to be with my entire family on Mother’s Day, playing with my nieces and nephews, I wanted to wear something chic but comfortable so I decided on this Femme Fatale tee (which I didn’t realize said 666 until today…I promise I don’t worship the devil!) and my favorite leopard Sperrys.

When I had gone outside initially I didn’t have on a jacket because the sun was beaming, and I assumed that it was warm. Not so…The weather here in DC is super weird. It was beautifully sunny, but very windy yesterday. So I took a few pictures with and without the jacket:

Some of my favorite accessories at the moment…

And yes, I have on leopard again. Lol…I just can’t stop wearing it! I am also super obsessed with gold accessories. This bracelet from the HRH Collection is super adorable and girly. Definitely one of my favorite pieces at the moment. Not to mention this ID necklace from Asos…Loves it!

I hope you all enjoyed this post!! xx…Kel

Special thanks to Kayla for snapping these pictures for me.

Spikes & Thangs…

DSCN0213

I’ve been looking for a cute military chic jacket for quite some time now and although I was supposed to be shopping for a dress to wear to graduation yesterday, I stumbled upon this. I had seen it online on Forever 21’s website (available here) and I have been contemplating whether or not I should buy it. I was hesitant to purchase it online because I wasn’t sure about which size to get, and I was a bit leery of the price point. However, when I saw it in the store yesterday I had to have it. I was thinking that this would be super cute for the fall, but since Summer is still playing hide and seek here in Maryland, I just might get some wear out of it this month.

For some odd reason I am absolutely obsessed with spikes and studs. Do you guys remembered when I purchased this Rebecca Minkoff Wallet on a Chain last summer? Yup, I am still loving it! I usually only carry it when I am going out and want to be hands-free, but it is still want of my favorite pieces in my accessory closet. Who doesn’t love a cute, lightweight crossbody!?

DSCN0212

This one is no longer available but Rebecca Minkoff has come out with a number of crossbody bags that are really similar. I see that many designers have caught on to this trend and now you can find spikes or studs on practically everything! Shoes, handbags, hats, jewelry, and even iphone cases. This spike trend is getting out of hand but I have to admit, I am loving it!

I hope you all enjoyed this post. Talk to you soon…Be blessed! xx…Kel

Rebecca Minkoff SS13 Runway Show

20120921-082557.jpg

Did any of you catch Rebecca Minkoff’s Spring/Summer 2013 Runway Show last week? I watched the live stream online (I think she is totally awesome for allowing people to watch online) and loved every second of it!!!

All of the prints and the ombre clothing…And you know I was stalking all of the handbags! I was also feeling the mint green eyeshadow and mint green nails each of the models was wearing. Check the video out for yourself below:

I loved all of the handbags from the big envelope clutches to the satchels to the cross body bags. I also loved the denim patchwork jeans and jean shorts. Look 26, the African American woman with the black and grey top, and black, white and grey pants, was my favorite!!. Loved it from head to toe. And who doesn’t love a chic classic white blouse? I see she had a lot of those as well.

Wasn’t that awesome? I have to find a way to get my hine pots to fashion week next year. I refuse to be left out anymore! Loves it!!!
