Yes, guys every girl has these days believe it or not! After reading about the Wrap Dress on Loren Ridinger’s Myfashioncents.com , I decided that every girl needs a Wrap dress!! Seriously!! Here’s Why.

The Wrap Dress can be styled down with flip-flops or styled up with a pair of some sexy Heels and a nice Necklace, bracelet, maybe some earrings?

Another reason this dress is a must, is its All Season! Never going out of style!!

The Wrap dress can be worn ALL YEAR LONG, since it is very versatile.

Just wear it plain with some sandals in spring or summer.

Slap on a pair of  some tights and a light jacket during Fall and layer with a few extras during winter.

How to Make your Perfume Last Forever

Perfume makes us feel pretty, and to be honest it is not a cheap accessory. Most bottles can set you back $150, so keeping your perfume lasting longer should every woman’s must! The horrible part is Perfume is not expensive to make, yet the price tag is high…and the pretty bottle makes it look like there’s even more than there actually is.

Perfume is not a cheap item to buy, yet we have our favorite scents that we must wear, or maybe you got one as a gift. Making that little bottle last longer than its expected shelf life is important for not wasting precious products (and money). Here are a few tips on how to keep your Perfume lasting longer than the 2-3 years shelf life time.

Surprisingly, storing your Perfume with the lid shut tight and in the original box will help your perfume last just a little bit longer

Also, the darker bottles have a tendency to absorb less light therefore the scents will be truer for longer.

Keep your bottles away from any moisture-rich areas like the bathroom . Be wary if you live in humid, ocean or wet climates as your perfume may taper off faster

It is best to keep your perfumes in dark corners and at room temperatures, this will prevent your perfume from losing its scents and lasting longer.

Also, the expensive brands tend to last longer since they are made with better ingredients than the cheap ones. So, save up and buy one good one instead of 10 cheap ones. (This should go for most things you buy)

When in doubt, close the lid and stick it in a corner if you want your perfume to last forever 🙂

What is your favorite scent to wear? I love to wear Chance by Chanel..I know I’m going to use all of these tips to help it last even longer!! 😉

Summer Cocktail Inspired Outfits

Hi my Lovelies!

What can be better than a Nice Refreshing Summer cocktail enjoyed on the beach? Why not get inspired by these girly cocktail drinks by creating a fun and chic Summer outfit? Here’s one to get you started:

Lets start with the Drink- Watermelon-Tequila Cocktails

Ingredients:
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup granulated sugar
8 cups diced seedless watermelon (1 pound)
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 3/4 cups blueberries
3/4 cup lightly packed fresh mint leaves, plus 8 sprigs for garnish
1 1/4 cups silver tequila
Ice
How to:
1. In a small saucepan, bring the water to a simmer with the sugar and stir over moderate heat until the sugar is dissolved, about 1 minute; let the sugar syrup cool.
2. In a blender, puree the watermelon until smooth. Set a fine-mesh strainer over a bowl and strain the watermelon juice, pressing gently on the solids to extract as much juice as possible. Discard the pulp.
3. In a large pitcher, combine the sugar syrup with the lime juice, blueberries and mint leaves. Using a wooden spoon, lightly muddle the blueberries and mint. Add the watermelon juice and tequila. Refrigerate until chilled, about 2 hours.
4. Pour the cocktail into tall ice-filled glasses. Garnish with the mint sprigs and serve

A New way to Buy and Sell Fashion

poshmark

Recently, I came across this awesome new site called Poshmark. 

Basically, it’s a site for Ladies to Sell that gently-worn dress in the back of their closet and buy some other Woman’s gently worn dress. (Or you can just keep the profit) It’s kinda like eBay, except its only for Women’s Fashion and Accessories. There are also Posh Parties to buy and sell from multiple women live. It’s a like a live tweet marketplace.

Poshmark also takes care of the shipping for you, when you sell an item, the email you a pre-paid USPS postage stamp (included in the selling price), Just print, pack in a box and leave in a blue USPS mailbox. Then wait for your money to arrive straight to your bank account!

To me Poshmark sounds like a fun Instagram-esqe shopping platform for Women. Why just throw that old piece of clothing (that’s still wearable) to Goodwill, when you can make some money. You paid good dollars for your clothes, get some of it back!

Are you going to join?
