Victoria's Secret Fashion Show Viewing Party Essentials


Are you guys as excited as we are for the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show?! It's set to air next Tuesday, December 8th 10/9c on CBS and we can hardly wait. Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid are the newest runway editions and we are excited to see them strut their stuff. Since we can't all be models, we can certainly enjoy watching them! We've put together the ultimate Victoria's Secret Fashion Show Viewing Party Essentials below so invite your sisters/girlfriends, slip on some Victoria's Secret PJs and gear up for the Superbowl rendition for us women..haha!

  1. First things first, invite your girlfriends! Send an Evite, Facebook Event or better yet, use the app we have talked a lot about called Invitd where you can invite your friends through text.
  2. Rock Victoria's Secret gear...I mean, duh! Click here, here, and here for some of our favorite PJs. Be sure to place your orders soon so they come in in time for the show!
  3. Next, download Victoria's Secret printables to be used throughout the house as decor. Etsy is the best place to find unique, custom designs. If you are good at Paint or Photoshop, simply make pink striped layouts and print them out to emulate the Victoria's Secret design. Hit up your local decoration shop like Party City to snag pink, white and black napkins, cups, plates, and utensils.
  4. As much as we "try" to avoid it while watching the models, stuffing your face is inevitable so make your food and drinks follow a pink theme. Cute custom angel wing sugar cookies like the ones pictured here or popcorn and pretzels drizzled with pink chocolate are a good {unhealthy, guilty] start!
  5. Have a pre-game to make watching the show a bit more fun. Each guest needs to guess the following questions: How many total models will be a part of the show? How many times will a model wink? How many outfits will be shown on the runway? Add some of your own questions, print them out and have each girl hold onto her sheet. Gather the answers before hand and award the winner with Victoria's Secret perfume or a gift card!
  6. Give some parting gifts! Victoria's Secret lip gloss is perfect!
  7. Last but not least, make sure you have some nice soft blankets like this one made from Victoria's Secret to keep you all comfy on the couch!

Have fun!!

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 |
Can you say, "BATHING SUIT SEASON"?! We know, we can hardly contain ourselves either! Be ahead of the game for spring break and shop for some cute, unique swimsuits now! We have pulled together some of our favorite swimsuits out on the market so shop them above by clicking through the links. We love simplicity when it comes to bathing suits so we have no shame in rocking a one piece especially if it's made by J. Crew. In fact, don't sleep on J.Crew because they have some pretty cute designs from tribal prints to metallic materials. Gotta love it! Of course, we will always be die hard Victoria's Secret bathing suit fans and are looking forward to trying out pieces from their Spring collection.

Which Victoria's Secret Model Are You?


So, tonight is the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. We know, "it came sooooo fast!". Remember when we collaborated with Victoria's Secret? We absolutely love Victoria's Secret if you haven't already guessed (hint, hint Christmas present). Time to dust off your angel wings, clear off your couch, gather the girls and be super jelly at all the VS Fashion Models on the runway. Rumor has it Ariana Grande got hit by one of the Angels on the runway (ouch!). Speaking of the Angels, wouldn't it be nice to know which VS Model you are? We found this fun, cheesy quiz on QuoteV that tells you just what VS Model you are. Can you guess which one of us got Cara Delevingne?! Take the quiz here and share with us below or on Facebook!

You can catch the Victoria's Secret Fashion show tonight at 10/9c on CBS!

P.s. Go to Victoria's Secret website after the show for an online after party. They've got another surprise after the show ends. Check the site at 11PM EST.

Flower Power

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12]

Spring has sprung and April is right around the corner! As you can see on our TSS Instagram (follow us if you don't already!), we are obsessed with floral prints- it's colorful, bright, cute, and it's perfect for Spring! The best part about floral is that you can dress it up with a floral clutch like the Ted Baker London clutch above or you can dress it down with cute baseball cap like the J. Crew one above!  

What are some of your favorite stores that carry a lot of floral prints?

Happy Hump Day!

TSS Co Founder's Interview: Karen



1. Where do you currently reside and what do you love most about it? "I live in sunny (just joking) Seattle and I love EVERYTHING about it. Seattle offers you everything from Starbucks to hipsters, to the mountains, water, city-life, and so much more. P.S. It doesn't rain as much as people claim…it honestly just sprinkles. No one uses their umbrella! Did I mention we have an amazing football team too? GO SEAHAWKS!"

2. Describe your closet. "Well, I have two closets because I am a shoe and clothes fanatic. My walk-in closets are filled with clothes that are all color coordinated and shoes for days. My style is so eclectic that you see everything from a leopard Forever 21 jumpsuit to sparkly Louboutin heels!"

3. What was your favorite part about being in a sorority? " I absolutely loved choreographing and performing dances for philanthropies. Our dance group (which included Co Founder, Sakura!) called ourselves The Thetawockeez--it was great!"

4. What did sorority life teach you that you applied in the real world? "Sorority life taught me to show people the greatest version of you. You want everyone, whether they are compatible with you or not, to fall in love with who you are. This is one of the biggest lessons that my sorority taught me that I have applied in every aspect of the real world".

5. What are 5 beauty products you can't live without? "Lipgloss (Victoria's Secret lipgloss will always be my fave but I have recently started using Smashbox Lipgloss and it is equally amazing), Bare Minerals Foundation powder, Lilly Lashes, MAC Comfort Creme, and my favorite sets of perfumes that I rotate (Angel by Thierry Muglier, Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel, Bright by Versace and La Vie Est Belle by Lancome)".

6. What do you love most about working on TSS? "I love seeing the reaction our readers have to our content. It is so inspiring to watch and hear how much our content improves lives!" 

7. What is the best advice you were ever given? "Be careful how you treat people on your way up because you might meet them on your way down". Those are famous words from my mother and they couldn't be more true. Often times in life, people gain a level of success where they forget where they came from or how they got there and choose to mistreat those who were on their journey. Lack of humility and self-entittlement can really hinder your reputation with people who have known you so it's so important to remain humble and avoid burning bridges. After all, you never know, you might see these same people again and the tables could turn where you will need their help".

8. Who's your celebrity style crush? "My STYLIST crush ( I say Stylist crush because we all know celebrities do NOT dress themselves) is Monica Rose. She styles women like the Kardashians and Guiliana Rancic to name a few and I absolutely love every look she puts together. I would love to raid her closet!"

9. What are your top 3 stores you like to shop at? "This is a toughy but I would have to go with TOPSHOP, ZARA, and FOREVER 21. If I can sneak one more in I would say my favorite online store is ASOS".

10. What do you like to do on your day off? No days off here folks! Haha, just joking…sort of. On my day off I like to have friends over where we enjoy a glass of champagne and catch up on reality TV!

11. What else do you do for work? When I am not blogging, I am working full time in medical sales. I love working for a company that is essentially saving and improving lives!

12. What are your interests/passions? I absolutely LOVE party planning. It is my true passion and I really look up to party planners like Colin Cowie and Mindy Weiss. My specialty is candy buffets which I do here and there for my friends and people who reach out to me. I started documenting my parties and party advice here.

Flawless {Makeup} Finish


In the quest for a flawless complexion, our search is finally over!  From a fun night out, to looking perfectly polished everyday, we found 2 fabulous products that have become a staple in our makeup routine.  TSS Co-Founder, Ali, has personally been using both of these products for years... and we're all hooked!  

To start... if you're not already using a primer in your daily makeup routine, it's time to give it a whirl.  The Oil-Free Airbrush FX Face Primer made by Victoria's Secret not only protects your skin with SPF 15, but it creates a velvety smooth canvas for your makeup.  Ali is flat out obsessed with this product, and swears that she can't go a day without it.  Even on the days when you're wearing less makeup, it provides a clean look for your skin.  For the times when you're wearing heavier foundation, it's a must-have.  The primer provides a base for even makeup application (it even makes your pores less visible), and gives it all-day staying power.  

After applying the primer, MAC Studio Fix Fluid is the next step in the flawless complexion process.  This foundation is a bit on the heavier/full coverage side, but you can choose to either apply a little or a little more depending on the look desired.  Start small, and go from there if more of the foundation is needed.  Ali suggests applying the foundation first with a makeup brush, and then taking a beauty blender to smooth any lines created by the brush.  The beauty blender is also key to providing that "airbrushed" effect at home.  Pat down with the beauty blender all over your face, focusing on the areas around the eyes and nose, and you will create a beautifully smooth look.  Extend the foundation application a little under your chin, fading off onto your neck, as to avoid a harsh line between the coloring on your face and neck.

We hope you love our tricks for creating a flawless complexion.  Give it a try, and let us know what you think!

It Girl Interns Trend Report: Mascara


In our daily makeup routines, applying mascara is like the cherry on the cake.  Any makeup look isn't quite complete without it, and adding a few coats can make a huge difference.  But with all of the mascara selections out there, it's hard to know which ones are the best!  We turned to our It Girls, to see which mascaras they love the most.  Ranging from drug store brands to designer, there's a little something for everyone!

An affordable classic is Victoria's pick, Maybelline Great Lash.  Don't underestimate the price, as this little pink tube has long been praised by beauty experts as one of the very best.  We're also big fans of makeup products by Victoria's Secret, including Rachel's pick.  Alyx's selection, by Dior, is her absolute favorite.  "The brush is perfectly shaped so that you don't need an eyelash curler," Alyx says.  

Serena has 3 mascara favorites that she likes to use; including Benefit, Smashboxx, and Julep.  Plus, she shared her tips with us, on how to get the most out of your mascara!  "Always start with clean lashes and layer the coats on," she says, which is an important first step.  Next, "begin at the base of your lashes and gently wiggle back and forth as you move the wand up your lashes.  Repeat if desired!"  Another tip we love, is to "use a lengthening mascara on the very tips of your eyelashes to make sure your whole lash is coated-- this really adds length to your lashes, because the lacquer can extend over the tips of your lashes a bit," Serena adds.

What is your favorite mascara brand?  We would love to hear about the mascara you love to use!

Opposites Attract

Jacket: Urban Outfitters (similar here).  Shirt: Chloe K (similar here).  Jeans: H&M.  Lipgloss: Victoria's Secret.

Black & white is our go-to when we want to look polished.  It's chic, crisp, and looks great for any occasion.  Our TSS It Girl, Rachel, sure knows how to rock the look!  We love how she paired these basic staple pieces to create her ensemble.  The style is complete with hot pink lips (we love her Victoria's Secret lipgloss!) to add a dash of color.  When it comes to black & white, opposites sure do attract!

Spring Break Essentials



We remember the good old days of planning spring break trips with our sisters. Wherever we decided to go, a sandy beach and heat were always a standard. No matter where you decide to have a little spring vacay, there are some key spring break essentials you will need to pack to be fully prepared. Below is our complete list of Top 10 Spring Break Essentials.

        

Super stylish bathing suit cover-up
This is a must have when you want to take a break from the beach but don't want to be in regular clothes. Our favorite cover-ups are the ones found at Victoria's Secret

Trendy sunglasses
You've got to protect your eyes from the sun and still look super cute while laying out, so be sure to pack some trendy sunglasses. Our personal favorite sunglasses are any Nordstrom brand ones, like Jimmy Choo or Tom Ford.

A couple of cute bathing suits
Nowadays, it's not about how cute your bathing suit looks in the water, it's about how cute it looks pool/beach side. We always pack several bathing suits so we have options. Target sells really cute and affordable bathing suits that we love.

Camera
You've got to capture all the memories so packing a camera is a must. Pack a small, sleek, camera that will be easy to carry around. Canon's are the best quality cameras and you can buy them at Target for a great price.

Beach bag
You definitely need a cute beach bag to tote around with all your essentials. J.Crew has the absolute cutest bags and our personal favorite is the Famers' Market Tote.

Fedora hat
Fedora hats are a fashion piece that never gets old on the beach. With your cute sunglasses, bathing suit, and fedora hat you will have the perfect beach outfit. We shop at DPC 1921 or Forever 21 whenever we want some trendy fedora hats.

Sunscreen
Since you are going to be in the sun, you can't forget to protect yourself. Packing sunscreen is probably one of the most important items you should bring on your spring break trip. Places like The Body Shop offer a plethora of different sunscreens to choose from. Their best seller is the Vitamin C Daily Moisturizer SPF 30.

Flip-flops/Sandals
Flip-flops and sandals will likely be your main footwear while on vacay so don't forget to pack them! There are plenty of places to get some basic flip-flops, but if you're looking for a stylish pair, check out these Basketweave sandals and many others at Forever 21.

Shorts
As much as it's so much easier to wear beach clothes all day long, it is important to pack some regular daytime clothes as well. Packing some casual shorts to pair with a simple top/tank is easy and makes for a cute outfit when away from the beach. J.Crew has some cute shorts; check out these Chino shorts.

NO WORRIES!
Without a doubt, having no worries is the most important spring break essential you should "pack".  Spring break is a time to let your hair loose, relax, and have fun!
