OOTD: Pink and Cobalt Blue + $50 Gift Card Giveaway!

Hi Ladies,
Happy Thursday..the weekend's almost here! Ready to do a little shopping on Saturday? If so, I've got a site you have to checkout: Before I Shop (BIS). Their goal is to provide you with all the information you need to make the most of your shopping experience:

  • Current sales
  • Product reviews
  • Outfit Inspiration
"Every day people" provide the product reviews, so if you find a Brand Contributor with your body type and style, you can just buy what they buy! :) Personally, I love scrolling through the different outfits to see how people have styled items from the stores I love.

In addition to being a user, I am currently a Brand Contributor and am teaming up with them to give away a $50 gift card to a Before I Shop store of your choice:


a Rafflecopter giveaway
The Giveaway will run until Thursday 3/6/14 12am MST and I will announce the winner within 2 days. 

Here are a few reviews I did:

And now back to the post... :)





I couldn't get as close as I would've liked but I wanted to show you this simple nail design. I dabbed the 'Spoiled' polish near the base of my nail. Then dabbed Nicole's near the top (it has larger flakes). Then dabbed a little more 'Spoiled' at the bottom and spread it to the tip. The effect is a sort of glittery-ombre look. (You can buy both of these polishes at the drugstore.) Enjoy!

  18. The pop of pink is adorable especially it is in a very subtle quantity - skinny belt! I always wish I pay more attention to my nails - paint them more, keep them long but I have a habit of biting my nails especially when I'm nervous so that alone doesn't help. Everytime we watch a suspense movie, my husband would hold my hand just to stop me from biting everything off!

  19. Cute nails and cute outfit :) I also like to see how things look on real people before purchasing at least it gives you a realistic expectation on how something will look on you. Great giveaway, I'm looking forward to brighter colors and pastels :)

    1. Cool...I'm a new lover of piperlime! Have you seen all the coupons they've had lately? And you can use it on stuff that would never go on sale, like Kate spade jewelry.
