Wedges are a absolute must-have in the warm seasons!  You can wear them with everything and anything and you can either dress them up or down- honestly, however you want to!  There are many different styles of wedges though, so unless you have a endless amount of coins in your piggy bank, it's probably best to invest in a couple different styles of wedges that you can wear with almost everything!

Here are our top 6 picks on must-have wedges of this 2016 season!  When it comes to color, definitely go with either white, tan, or black- this allows you to match it with literally every color you can think of.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday! xo

The BEST, Cheapest Mascara



We know we have gushed about mascaras before, but this new one shared by Kappa Alpha Theta alumnae and San Diego Weather Anchor & Reporter, Kristen Keogh, takes the cake...or rather, takes the MASCARA. A lot of awesome, eyelash lengthening mascaras cost a pretty penny, but thanks to Kristen, we have found an awesome mascara that offers coverage, length, and doesn't burnout your wallet. It's called Boots No 7 Maximum Volume Mascara.

Try it out and let us know what you think!

It's been a while since we have stumbled across some awesome home decor and recently we stumbled across a quote that we felt is so fitting for our powerful, strong sorority sisters. The quote is from Shakespeare and reads: "Though she be but little, she is fierce". Well, in true sorority girl fashion, we decided to go on a quest to find cute home and every day accessory pieces that show off such a strong quote. Shop our favorites above!

The Trick to Using the Beauty Blender



The Beauty Blender has become such a necessity for most people that use liquid foundation and it definitely should be!  All of the celebrity makeup artists use it and it really does its magic.  For those of you that aren't familiar with the Beauty Blender, it's the pink egg-shaped sponge that allows you to perfectly blend in your liquid foundation on your skin.  It also helps with the mid-day touch up or when your skin is oily at the end of the day and you need to get rid of it!

There are generic brands that started creating something similar to the Beauty Blender but the texture of it and the softness of it is completely different than the actual Beauty Blender, so don't get tricked! The downside that you hear often is that it absorbs the liquid foundation and you end up having to use more liquid foundation than normal- and this is true.  It's a sponge so it does absorb a little bit of your foundation, but here's the trick that you all have been waiting for- put the foundation on your face using your fingers and then blend it in using the Beauty Blender!  It's an easy trick, but it really will help you get the most out of your liquid foundation and the best part about it is that you will save some money using this trick!

Last Minute Stocking Stuffers


[1][2][3][4][5][6]

Honestly, sometimes your stocking stuffers are what you look forward to more than your actual presents under the Christmas tree! Growing up our stockings were always filled with candy, but as time as gone by, we have noticed this fad in putting mini presents in stockings and we love it! We love this heart printed water bottle along with this funny "You Can't Spin With Us" water bottle...mainly because they're pink, haha! Everyone can use a pair of socks so why not add some fun polka-dotted ones like these one? Shop the rest of our favorites above!

What are some stocking stuffers that you will be stuffing into your loved one's stockings? Share the love by leaving a comment below!

Happy last minute shopping!

Gifts For Her: Signature Scents



Before you know it, Christmas {or whatever holiday you choose to celebrate} will be here! While gifts aren't everything, we certainly understand it is widely practiced by many, so don't fall behind on fulfilling your friends and family's gift wish list. We have decided to pull some items from different gift categories to help you have some selections when choosing the perfect gift for a special girlfriend, your Mom or sister in your life.

Today, we have compiled our favorite fragrances for HER. When it comes to fragrances, you really cannot be stingy. Your scent is just as important as your outfit and often times your scent walks into a room before you do. When thinking of selections we have high end, splurge options like Café Rose by Tom Ford which gives off a strong, yet floral and sophisticated scent. Then you have a little more middle end scents to choose from like Si by Giorgio Armani or Bella by Vince Camuto which is a newer scent. Whichever scent you choose, opt for the gift set option! You get more bang with your buck as you can add in a lotion and often times smaller bottle of the perfume in addition to the actual perfume.

What are some of your favorite scents?

TSS Favorite Things: October Edition



We're back with our favorite things for this October! We are so thrilled that Fall season has commenced because we are suckers for pumpkin spice lattes, beanies, over the knee boots, and those famous Rom Coms to snuggle up watching. It should be no surprise then why we chose some of our favorite things above! Fringe is 100% a Fall fashion trend so the Rebecca Minkoff Fringe Purse and the Lucky Brand Booties are necessary closet editions. Ever since Solange dawned a cape dress for her wedding, we have been obsessed with that look and found a cute wool one called the Wayf Collarless Woven Cap. Earlier in the month we talked about our love for the best primer ever, so naturally we are keeping Givenchy Mister Mat Matifying Foundation Primer high on our shopping list in addition to Laura Mercier Radiance Primer.

Shop the rest of our faves here
  1.  Mansur Gavriel Mini Bucket Bag-Black
  2.  Women's Jessica Simpson 'Conley' Bootie, 3 1/2" heel
  3. Aldo heels/pump37
  4. Ugg Slippers (in Sand color)
  5. Swell Bottle
Happy October shopping!

Bye, Bye Makeup





Even though we have been doing makeup for ever, we can honestly say that we have no idea when it's time to let go of our favorite makeup products. Is it just us or do you just love your makeup so much that you want to hold onto it forever?! Well, holding onto old makeup forever is no bueno so it's time to tell that makeup "bye, bye"! Psst..here's a little sorority secret: if you want to know when to throw away any of your makeup, be sure to hold onto the original box you got it from. Why? At the back or bottom of the box there is an area that says a number and then months. That is an indication of how long you should hold onto your makeup before it's no good! We know, mind blown!

Save the makeup expiration guide that we personally created above just for you so you never have old makeup in your makeup bag, ever!

Fall Nail Colors to Have




Fall is here and what are we most excited for about it?! Fall nail polish colors, of course!  Nail polish colors are very seasonal and they also change every year- burgundy has been trendy these last couple of years, but you'll be seeing a lot more camel & coppers this year.  The camel shade is great because it's a little more neutral and goes with everything, but if you're really trying to stand out then copper is your color.

We're also currently obsessing over matte nails, but matte top coats are a hit or miss.  We've tested it and it's amazing- try Essie's "Matte About You" finisher!  It will dry your nails in a giffy and give you that perfect matte finish on any color you desire.

What are some of your favorite fall colors you see this year?!

Then, of course our amazing friends at Sephora put us on to the best face primer, like EVER. If you want to have your face matte, oil-free, and smooth as a baby's bottom then you have got to get your hands on Mister Mat Mattifying Foundation Primer from Givenchy. Co Founder, Karen lives for this product and has experienced nothing but compliments on her face makeup since she has been using it. She loves it because it has a gel-like balm feel to it. It also glides over the skin like a soft, powdery halo with a velvety finish that keeps the complexion perfected and shine-free. Try it out and let us know what you think!
