Holiday Nails {by Cristina}




Its that time of year again... CHRISTMAS! I don’t know about you girl, but Christmas is my absolute favorite holiday. I enjoy everything from decorating the house and tree, to finding the perfect holiday accessories. I want to focus on something that I have noticed a lot of this year, holiday nails! We all love the classic red nails, but today it’s all about making your nails unique for this holiday season!

If you're looking for something classic but glam, look no further. I used Big Apple Red by OPI for a gorgeous red base coat. It's one of my favorites for a classic red hue! Then to add a little holiday feel, I used All Sparkly and Gold by OPI at the base of my nail in a half moon shape.

Hope you love this quick & easy way to add a little "holiday sparkle" to your favorite red nails!

Smoky Eye Perfection



The smoky eye is everywhere... it's one of the biggest makeup trends.  It compliments all skin tones, and it adds an extra element of glamour for those special nights out.  It takes a few steps to perfect the smoky eye look, and today I'm sharing my secrets with the TSS readers!

What you will need:
            1) Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer
            2) Colossal Mascara
            3) Bobbi Brown Bone Eye Shadow
            4) Mac Cork Eye Shadow
            5) Mac Carbon Eye Shadow
            6) Mac Rice Paper Eye Shadow
            7) Mac Retrospeck Eye Shadow
            8.) Bobbi Brown Black Gel Eyeliner


Step One:
Apply primer all over the lids and lower lash line. I highly recommend Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer. Your eye makeup will last all day without smudges!
Step Two:
Apply Bobbi Brown Bone to the brow bone of your eye.  Once you're done applying, use Mac Rice Paper on the lid stopping at the crease of your eye.
Step Three:
Apply Mac Cork through the crease of your eye, and extend slightly upward to the middle of the crease of your eye.
Step Four:
Where you have stopped in the middle of your eye with Cork, finish the crease by applying Mac Retrospeck to blend into the Cork.
Step Five: 
Use Mac Carbon to accent the corner or your eye, extending it outward.  For a more dramatic look, apply extra of the black Carbon shadow.
Step Six:
Line your lower lashline with Mac Cork, and apply Mac Retrospeck to the inner corner of your eye.
Step Seven:
Apply gel eyeliner and mascara.  Gel eyeliner gives a bold line with intense color.  After that, voila!  You
have the perfect smoky eye!

First Date Perfection


Look One.  Peach Dress: similar here.  Platform Sandals: Jessica Simpson. 
Look Two.  Blouse: Express.  Jeans: 7 For All Mankind.  Shoes: Vince Camuto (similar here).
Look Three.  Dress: RVCA.

First dates, so exciting but at the same time a little stressful. So many things are going through your mind, but most girls are usually worried about one thing... what to wear!  The perfect first date outfit is not necessarily about the brand you are wearing, but instead an outfit that brings out your confidence. What you wear on a first date tells a guy a lot about your personality, so you want to bring out your inner beauty with the right outfit selection. Here are a few tips that will hopefully help for your future first dates!

Tip one: wear something that is classy but flirty. Something like a fuller skirt, flirty dress. Dresses like this are super flattering-- they radiate confidence, and feminine charm! Throw in some chunky heels and statement accessories for a night on the town.  I love this sweet peach dress with the touches of lace, it's date night perfection!

Tip two: wear something with a pop of color.  Leave the black and grey for the office! Wearing color shows off the vibrant side of your personality. The blouses from Express are classy and cute, and come in a bunch of pretty colors.  When choosing a color, choose something that compliments your skin tone. Your date will think you're a knock out! 

Tip three: don’t feel the need to get too dolled up. Some first dates could be going to a sports game, or a lunch date. Go with something that is comfortable but fitting, like a maxi dress with summer sandals.  This one from RVCA has become one of my personal favorites!

Hopefully these tips can help alleviate some of those first date jitters.  Always remember to be your beautiful and unique self, and just have fun!
