Look(s) of the Day(s)

Howdy!  If you did not know, I have been writing "Look of the Day," posts for INsite Magazine's Blog.  If you did know, then now, you REALLY know.

Who doesn't love a good street-style?

Khambrea Johnkins was spotted while shopping in Forever 21. She looked very stylish, yet not over-done. When choosing her ensemble, her goal was to look cute but not forfeit comfort. Who said you can’t have the best of both worlds?!
A simple, black long-sleeve shirt paired with leggings offers a clean, sleek look, and every girl knows that this outfit would feel as good as a pair of pajamas! Throw on a pair of stylish black sandals and you are prepared to shop till you drop.
Add the vest for some personality, the glasses for trendiness, the bracelet & bag for some sparkle and what you’ve got is one alluring outfit!
Top:  Old Navy
Jean Vest:  Guess
Tights:  Forever 21
Sandals:  Traffic
Glasses:  Urban Outfitters (“This is what made my look!” Khambrea said.)
When Khambrea’s not shopping, she’s studying nursing at the University of Florida, but watch out. She is contemplating a transfer to pursue fashion, and we think she should go for it. Big thanks to her for the inspiration! You can look cute and still be comfortable.

Laura Dean, originally from Tucson, Az., has lived in Gainesville for the past two years and is currently working for Keith Watson Productions as a wedding design specialist. When she’s not at work, she loves spending time downtown seeing shows at the Hipp and hanging out with friends. Not only does Laura like visiting the Hipp, she also looks pretty hip! She was spotted at The Top in an outfit composed of varying elements that achieved perfection.
Laura stays true to a lot of classic looks and pieces but enjoys mixing things in that are a little out of the box, which gives her outfits that pop of intrigue. She is open-minded when it comes to shopping. “I think everyone has that one item in their wardrobe that they found somewhere they would usually never shop,” she says. She is also a fan of thrift stores and of Joe’s Jeans, “I seriously can’t live without them.” 
Brown Leather boots with purple stitching:  Kenzie
Tights:  Express
Mini-Dress:  Target (under $20!)
Denim Jacket:  “Super ancient, I’ve had it since I was 16.”
Feather Necklace:  Francesca’s
Leather “Rose” Crossover Bag:  Gianni Bini
Laura looks adorable in her mix between classic and eye-catching in leather, denim and feathers.

Fancy Hands Giveaway!

Hello Everyone Remember when I made the promise that I would host a giveaway for every giveaway that I won?  If not, click to see that it's true

I recently won Olive Essence Face Cream from Spa De Soleil and Beauty Blogette!


I love this face cream!  I have NOTHING negative to say about it, which is pretty fan-tastic! I'm a girl, so let's face it, complaining comes easy, but no complaints here! It wasn't too oily, it didn't leave my skin dry, it left my face perfectly moisturized, which I appreciated! I really have nothing else to say because if this was the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, and this face cream was porridge, it would be "JUST RIGHT!" 

I have been following Beauty Blogette for quite some time now and if you've never heard of this amazing blog, you should definitely check it out, like for sure!  There are lots of a-mazing giveaways and lots of beauty product reviews!  We as shopaholics, are guilty of buying products, trying them and being like, "uhhh."  Well, to save you from that feeling of "uhh" and the inevitable shoppers remorse, check out Beauty Bloggette.  She gives amazing reviews.  

And now for the main event, the GIVEAWAY!

 I love nail polish strips, love themI have a problem sitting still and just waiting, who wants to do that, it's tortureSo whenever I paint my nails, I always tend to touch something, mess up my nails and then get REALLY mad, and no one wants to deal with a really mad womanWith nail polish strip, there is no drying time, so these are simply perfect for me.  I love you all so much that I bought some for you and some for me!  You didn't think I would be left out, did you?  I'm a shopaholic!  

This is what the "Blue Jeans" shade looks like.  This would be the perfect finishing touch to complete your look if you were going for the ultimate Canadian Tuxedo!

 This is what the shade "Red-y for Trouble" looks like. 

Disclaimer: Whatever trouble you get into after applying the polish strips is not my responsibility. 

Now that you have two manicures raring to go, what do you need to polish off (get it?!) your look?

  A ring, duh!

I am not exactly sure what size this ring is (don't hate me).  It's bigger than a 7, that's for sure, because I wear a size 7 and it won't fit me.  The good news is that whoever wins this will hopefully have 10 fingers to try it on, and I hope that it will fit one of them.  However if it does not, you can complain about it and then give it to someone else and make their day a little brighter, don't be a Selfish Shellfish!

Oh, you wanna win, do you?
