Anyone who follows me on tumblr knows that I really want to try these. The set was $34 for 5. So basically each one is under $7.00, and they retail for $24 a piece, and they are full sized. I had to try these out.
This was such an amazing deal. It's still $55 online, but I managed to pick this up for $24.99 at my store today!! I love J.Crew Popovers, and I don't have any fall tops this color. I couldn't pass this deal up!
Guilty pleasure: the Pumpkin Spice Latte. Most of us love this classic fall drink, but not the price or the time! Here is a DIY recipe from The Daily Buzz
2 cups milk
2 tablespoons canned pumpkin OR 1 teaspoon of Pumpkin Spice Syrup (your choice)
2 tablespoons sugar or sugar substitute -
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1-2 shots espresso (about 1/4 cup of espresso or 1/2 cup of strong brewed coffee if you don’t have an espresso machine.)
Combine milk, pumpkin, and sugar in a saucepan and stir over medium heat until steaming. Remove the saucepan and stir in vanilla and spice, pour into a blender, and process for 15 minutes (or until foamy). No blender? No problem! Just whisk instead. Pour the mixture into a cup and put the espresso on top! Done!
We love red. We are not all daring enough to wear red, but it's worth a shot this fall. Red is everything in the fall, from candy apples to the leaves falling. Here our some of our picks for great reds!
I received tumblr requests to post reviews on these two products:
Benefit the POREfessional:
I received this product as a "free" 500 point perk along with a mini They're Real Mascara. It happened to be a fully sized product! I really do like it. It's only .75oz for $30, so it is pretty expensive for what you get. It makes my skin feel so smooth and velvety-so I love that. I am not an expert in the primer field, quite honestly. This is the first one I have had. If it lasts long enough for the price, I would repurchase it because I think it helps my makeup last longer. You don't need a lot of product either.
Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil Bronzer
HOLY GRAIL. I love this product so much. It is matte and perfect for those of us with lighter complexions. As pretty as the normal Chocolate Soleil Bronzer is, I think it would make me look muddy, so this is a great alternative. I love that is totally, completely matte. Sometimes I feel like bronzer with a lot of shimmer can make me look "shiny." It's perfect. It applies easily and smells like chocolate (for real.) I would highly recommend it to anyone.
Which do you like better? Can you tell the difference between the two?
Yes, yes, yes...Most of you reading this will probably immediately recognize that magically mystical H belt from Hermès. And that Hermès orange! Couldn't miss it for the life of you. But what about that second belt? Tortoise shell enamel? How cute?! And the leather is also Hermès orange. But there's a C instead of an H...interesting. Don't worry, the second belt also has an H letter buckle option.
Guess what the biggest difference between the two belts is...
C Wonder- $48 (leather belt) + $38 (tortoise letter belt buckle)/ $28 (gold plated letter belt buckle)
We're headed to the C Wonder store as you read this, don't worry.
I chose the steal. I ordered one off of eBay from a US seller and it was fairly inexpensive. I can't justify spending $150 on costume jewelry. The one from eBay might not hold up as well, but you could buy like 7 from the price of one J.Crew piece.
Have you joined in on this trend? Do you have a real or a fake? Love, A+C
This is a field we are both pros at!! College visits have become much more "casual" for people. It's not uncommon to see people sporting sweats, yoga pants, or leggings. (we know you would never do that!) Here are some non-blue denim looks we love!
Look 1: Navy pants, sweater, and scarf. I think it's some important to add a fun twist to an outfit! This polka dot scarf does the trick.
Look 2: Red denim and camel sweater. This is a super cute and fun look. It's put together, but not boring.
Look 3: A fun twist on the classic blazer and button down look! Throw on those fabulous cobalt jeans to change it up.
-Comfortable shoes. No heels. You will be miserable.
-We don't like wearing blue denim, but it is acceptable as long as you're wearing something nice on top.
-No obvious labels. This is not the time to sport your Reva flats or Louis Vuitton purse. Of course, classic jewelry is fine, but you wouldn't want to come off as snooty or materialistic.
-You want a cardigan or jacket. trust us.
-Dresses and skirts can be difficult. You might be sitting down in an awkward place or a bench, so pants are the safest bet.
Something really horribly embarrassing happened to me last weekend. I. ripped. my. jeans. in. public. Yes, I did. I bent over the wrong way and my jeans ripped. rich at the seam. I was so incredibly UNprepared. I found this little kit that I will be picking up to keep in my purse.
We had a tumblr request from the fabulous Emily to write a post on Blogging Etiquette/Ethics. Here are our tips! 1. Don't copycat names and posts. End of story. 2. Don't comment obsessively and expect comments back. Bloggers don't all have time to do that! 4. If you participate in blog features, link back to the creator. (Hey It's Ok Thursday etc.) I see that a lot and it makes me feel bad. 5. Don't claim series/graphics as your own. If you mess up with that, add in appropriate links when you use photos. 6. Remember: Everyone sees Blogger. That is more likely to show up in a google search than a tumblr page. Make sure you represent yourself in an appropriate matter, on blogger. Tumblr is a little bit more free, especially if you make yourself anonymous, as both of us have chosen to do.
WE love you all so much! Thanks for reading our blog-we are thrilled to be in triple digits in our fabulous followers! The follows and reads mean the world to us. Let us know if you ever have suggestions or need advice!
Feel free to email: firstname.lastname@example.org
It's test morning...don't forget anything with this guide!
1. Cardigan/Jacket. If you're not wearing one, you want to bring one. You never know the room temperature. Also cardigans and jackets are easier on and off than sweatshirts, so we recommend one of the two!
2. Luna/Nutrition Bar. Our tutors both advised us to eat one at the break, and we think they keep you more full and focused.
3. Graphing Calculator.
4. Pink Pearl Erasers and Ticonderoga Pencils. (if you're neurotic like we are!)
The SAT, ACT, PSAT. The worst three/four letter combos that exist. The ACT for juniors and seniors is this Saturday. We're both ACT pros. We've each taken it like 4 times. Here are our tips for test day morning. 1. Get enough sleep the night before, but not too much. It's essential you have your normal full amount of sleep that you work best on. But don't make that mistake of going to bed so early that you wake up and are bounding with energy. Also, the earlier you go to bed (than normally for you) the better chance you have of waking up and stressing out at ungodly hours. 2. Don't study the night before. Honestly, you just want to have a clear mind as possible, and trying to remember the distance formulas that Friday night won't help. 3. Relax. The night before, watch a movie, get a pedi, work out. Do something that makes you feel good. Don't go out to crazy the night before! 4.Wake up early enough the morning of that you're awake by the time you reach the testing center. Seriously, it might be five minutes away but you want to be fully awake and present. 5. Eat a good breakfast. Obviously! Make it something you love. Don't get a vent starbucks latte or you will be bouncing off the walls. 6. Remember, it's only a test and it does not determine your success in life!
