This season is huge in Bohemian/70’s style and accessories along with the Classy girl toughened up!

Fabrics and Patterns: Sheer- “Females are getting Bolder” See thru material with bra’s showing is not a sin no more. Any girl who went to public school in the 90’s knows what a big deal it was when your straps would show when wearing tank tops. Although I don’t believe to many of us cared, I do know my grandmother hated it!  But, with the rise in women fighting for the first female president, equal pay, and still equal rights around the world. We are becoming bold with our fashion. An in BOLD I mean Individually women who are confidently showing their bodies more in our fashion, in very stylish ways…Bean Styled Say’s keep Rockin’ it! 

Floral- Huge trend for spring, Big to Little size patterns in all the latest colors. Grab a Spring dress in the latest floral patterns. If you’re not to big on the idea of wearing floral’s start small, scarf, shorts, or maybe even a skirt in a smaller floral pattern. 

Leather- HUGE this seasons in details on clothes, Shirts, shorts, shoes. Leather and patent leather Find some great items that will take you right into Fall 2015 Fashion season. Which includes leather with more details, colors and styles than ever before.

Fringe- Okay it’s 70’s and it is also a Bohemian look. The Fringe is Back! It reminds me of the 80’s and I want to cringe. But designers have detailed Purses, dresses, and even shoes.

Must Have/Try  After a few months of testing new products out on shelves this past winter and beginning of the 2015 year here is what we found….. CYMERA_20150217_114907

ACURE Organic skin care line now at Target and is a must try! I applied this oil right to my skin after a shower. I like an oil that will soak right in and not leave that sticky residue or take 20 minutes before I can get dressed. What’s great about the Acure Moroccan argan oil is that you can use it on face, body, and hair! Triple use so the price is well worth it. Not to mention it is USDA certified Organic. Yes, tested it on all three. Left hair shiny, frizz free and very manageable. Apply when still wet then blow dry and use your heating tools. If you have extreme frizz apply a pea size drop in hands and apply to just ends.

IMG_20150204_123227Garnier Clean+ Smoothing Cream Cleanser for dry skin really helped us through the winter months. Infused with nourishing Jojoba and Macadamia Oils to help hydrate skin, this cleanser also left our skin feeling clean. Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream-Hydrating tinted beauty balm with SPF15, the formula has a very light feel on the skin. Great alone or under concealer and powder to help set and give a matte look without thick or more expensive foundations. Perfect for the summer and warmer weather approaching.

IMG_20150217_195419Fingr’S- in “Rock Rebel- Wild Card ~The Best Press-On Nails on the market! Buy them Online at Had I not took them off myself after 7 days (because personally I can only stand nails for so long, hence why I do press-on’s 😉 I think they would have lasted a month! Not kidding, they glue tabs they have on their nails are like not any other. Those tabs ROCK and that glue holds tight! Bonus with this brand it comes with finger nail charms that have their own glue sticker sheet to press on top of the nail. The sizes are spot on and variable for all size fingers. I can tell this because my nail beds are flat and wide. So unlike most artificial nails they seem to be to small or to big. Fingr’s has a great option of sizes.

IMG_20150212_111340So Excited to have found the ASP Instant French Manicure nail pen! Thank you Sally’s Beauty Supply for another great score. This pen makes apply french tip a breeze. So much easier than nail polish. Like with anything else practice makes perfect. I can do a quick 2 minutes on my nails and look like I went and had them done. Or take time paint nails any color and add white tips or stripes. This pen should never go out of style, it is a Blessing! One thing I hope improves is the formula, it could last a few days longer.

IMG_20150126_155646Clairol Root Touch ups– Absolutely love! A huge thanks to Influenster for our Free box to try! So much easier to apply for when you are just doing root touch up. Plus if you keep the brush you could use it for your own favorite brand. But, if it has been awhile since you have tried Clairol give it a go! It had been some time since we used Clairol but can say we have missed the old favorite.  Lasted without fading, looked natural. When you recieve compliments on getting your hair done… it’s a Winner!

  IMG_20150307_154523Wet and Wild– Another old favorite we decided to try during our Wal-Green’s beauty spree. First, is WnW lipstick in “Vamp it up/Style vamp 919B. Since Fall has dark lips as one of the hottest trends we are searching out our favorite dark lip colors from deep dark reds to purples. So follow the blog and all of us will have are “Dark Lips” ready for Fall/Winter 15 Season. Wet and Wild quote “4-hour, long-wearing lip color leaves a semi-matte, creme finish in one stroke” An we will give it to them. It lasted all 4 hours, no bleeding, and awesome color pigment. Plus, with vitamins A and E to help smooth lips and keep them hydrated you don’t have to worry about lips drying out and cracking. We do recommend an olive oil and sugar scrub on lips before applying any lipstick to help smooth, hydrate lips and color always goes on much smoother.  Which is very important with dark-colored lipsticks. Next, we tried Wet&Wild Fergie center stage collection’s “TO REFLECT SHIMMER PALETTE” in Rose Champagne Glow. If you have a fair complexion, this may be the best bronzer/blush/highlighter ever created. Use as just a blush for light rose-pink with pearl finish color on cheeks. Really mix your brush in the palette wet or dry for a great Bronzing that won’t be too dark for lighter skin tone’s.Place under the cheek bone up to temples. Such a great shimmer I can’t wait to see how this glows in the summer sun. They formula is light, and does not make skin look chalky. Nice silky application.

CYMERA_20150322_211454Ardell Professional Lashes– We don’t buy to many other brands of false lashes. Ardell always has something new and never have I bought a pair that did not work for me. So I picked up “Edgy” style from Sally Beauty Supply. They were on clearance so I hope that does not mean they won’t be making this pair anymore because they gave such a natural yet full look. You could use them for a day or night look.
