Falling In Love...With Autumn, Featuring top from!

Hi Loves!
Today I have an exciting post! This weekend I got a package in the mail from the website I ordered a very unique top that I am to feature in one of my posts.
When I got the package I was really exicted to open it. Once I tried on the shirt, it was a bit different then what the model was wearing, however I still like it just as much.

I paired this shirt with a high waisted skirt from Urban Planet and some wedges by George!

 Check out the link here to see how the model for OASAP wore this top! 

I hope you guys enjoyed this post! And I also just wanted to mention that today I finally turned 18! Thanks to all my followers and friends for the wonderful birthday wishes! :) <3

Hey Loves!

I am so sorry lately for my absence here on blogger and as well on youtube. I have been so busy lately and havent had time to make any good-quality posts to publish. So I thought I wouldnt post some half-ass kind of post that wouldnt be worth the time to read. I have also been wanting to make this update post for you guys for some time now, but didnt even have time to do that. However, today I went home early from work so I was determined to get this post and explanation up for you girls. 

So to update you on some things with my life... I feel like I can share these with you girls because everyone here on blogger feels like a second family to me!
So just before summer started, I graduated from high school and didnt know what I wanted to do this fall for school. I was always considering going to university but wasnt 100% sure if I was going to go or not. 
Fall quickly came and I still didnt know what I wanted to do, so I just decided not to go to university this term and find a full time job and make some money.
I was lucky enough to get a full time at Starbucks as a Barista just over a week ago. So everything has been crazy with trying to find time to work, still see my friends and boyfriend and have enough time to still get some sleep. For the past 2 weeks I have been working my 2 jobs which is why I havent had time to film or get a post up. 
I do have some posts that I know I want to get up for you guys so I hope to start posting alot again!

I also just wanted to add to this post, that right now I am IN LOVE with my new job at Starbucks, and I look forward to going to work there everyday. But I am in now way going to forget about all my wonderful followers or my blog! My blog has become apart of me and all my followers and your wonderful comments mean so much to me!

If you havent seen a comment on your blog from me either, again it is because I havent been on my laptop in over a week! But I plan on commenting on a whole bunch of posts once I am done posting this one.

I hope you all have a great day, and come back very soon to my blog for some new posts! :)

Polishes used:
- Essie: A Cut Above

I hope you girls liked this post! I have fallen in love with my nails, but it is going to be such a pain to take off the sparkles. But oh well! :)

Have a great day!

Change Of Seasons OOTD

Hey Ladies!
Sadly the summer season is coming to a end. Every year this is a hard time for me because I just love the summer weather sooo much! But sadly I can't stop the weather from changing, so it's time to start pulling out my fall clothes.
For fall weather I think of more neutral colors like brown, dark red, plum purple and burgundy colors. What I am looking forward to the most for fall weather is the layering of clothes, colors, and patterns.

Today I thought I would post a quick OOTD with the first of my fall clothes.
I really love the pattern of this top. It reminds me of almost a tribal / native pattern. This shirt is also unique because of the wide "bat wing" sleeves and shorter length.

And now to the outfit!:


What I'm wearing:
Top: Urban Planet
Earrings: Forever 21
Bangle: Vintage

I hope you all liked this outfit!
What is one of your favorite things to wear once the weather begins to change??

TAG!: What's On My iPhone?!

Hey Girls!
Today I have a fun non-beauty related tag for you! Lately alot of gurus on Youtube have been doing this tag called Whats On My iPhone? Watching these videos for people who have smart phones are really interesting because you get to see what different apps everyone uses! After watching some of these videos I actually downloaded some of the apps to try for myself!
Since I have a iPhone, I thought it would be cool to do one of these posts/videos! Ill link the Youtube video I made down below so you guys can watch it too!
And like always, Please Like, Comment, and Subscribe to my channel:
So now lets get right to the post!
So first off I thought I would show you what case I use for my phone. It is this SUPER cute black case with diamonds and flowers on the back. I got this at Urban Planet, and love it soooo much! I dont use this case all the time, so I dont lose some of the decals on the back.
So when you first look at the lock screen of my phone, you will see this picture of me and my friends as the wallpaper. Nothing too special on the lock screen, just the time and date as well.
When you open my phone, the first page of my phone looks like this. Nothing too special. On this first page I like to keep most of the apps that came with my phone on this page. I think this page is pretty self explanatory so I dont think I will go into detail with this page.
On my second page, I have the apps that I use alot of the time. So from left to right, I have my Facebook app that I use for my personal account, my Twitter app that I use to let all of you know about my blogging, I have my skype app, then this cool app called Shazam. What it does is it will listen for a song on the radio or whatever, and tell you the name of the song! This is such a handy app that I use when I dont know a name to a song. One the next row I have my emails for my blog, this app called My Fitness Pal that is like a workout/eating diary, then I have sleep/alarm clock app, and then of course my blogging app so I can work on post while I'm out! And on the last row I have my reminders, which is a workout video app, and then this cool app that I just downloaded called Period Diary. It keeps track and counts down the days until your next period. I think its pretty cool and cant wait to try it.
On my last page I have my 3 folders with my gaming/entertainment/utilities apps. I also have my Starbucks app, Instagram, and 2 radio station apps from my city so that I can listen to the radio where ever I am! On this page you also get a better view of my background picture which is of me and my boyfriend Colton :)
In my games folder I have a variety of games. I dont always play these games, but they are here just in case I ever get bored! The games that I have are: Fruit Ninja (soo fun!), Cake Ninja, Unblock Me, Temple Run, Angry Birds (another addicting game!), Sally's Salon, Family Feud, Planet Fish, Miss Spider, Hell's Kitchen, Icebreaker, and Paper Toss. Some of these are kids games (as you can tell haha) that are just on here for fun.
In my Entertainment folder I have a variety of apps. I first have IMDB which is a movie searching app to see actors/actresses and reviews and pictures of movies. I have this Cineplex app which is to see what movies are playing at the theaters in my city, I then have a few more games: Tap Tap Revenge, Draw Something, Finger Race, and then some funny entertainments apps like FML, Blonde Jokes (yes! haha), and Truth or Dare. I then have my game center app, and the smart phone messenging app Kik.
In my last folder I have all my utilities such as my calculator, Pic Jointer which is for collaging pictures, Pixlromatic which is this cool editing app for pictures that I just downloaded which is amazing!! I also have PE-Fotolr which is another picture editing app, as well as Insta eFREE, I then have a iTorch flashlight app, RMaker which is to make your own ringtones from songs from your music library!, and then I have just some other random apps like my compass, voice memos, and stocks! 
I hope you all enjoyed this post and video! And if any of you have a iPhone I tag you to do this post/video as well!
