It's the start of my favorite fashion season! You all know I live for my jeans and knits and I can finally start wearing them out again. The weather this day was so perfect at 65ยบ that all you needed was a light sweater to keep you warm. I picked this one up from H&M for only $25! H&M is killing it this year with their affordable knitwear. They have pieces starting at only $19.99 - and they're super cute. I upped this look by pairing it with my patent boots and statement earrings. I think you'll start seeing me in more "dangly" earrings in the coming months - I'm super into them right now!

Happy fall.

I wanted to start a new series on the blog where I do an edit once a month for one of my favorite stores! I'm kicking off the series with Zara because well, who doesn't love Zara? These are pieces that are right up my alley, and what speaks to my fashion-loving soul. Here are my picks for Zara's new in:

01 linen dress
02 straw bag
03 earrings
04 off-shoulder jumpsuit
05 leather slide-on espadrilles
06 snakeskin slides
07 knotted tote bag
08 crossbody bag
09 sneakers

I was mainly drawn to accessories in the New In section, so I've got a healthy selection here! What are your favorites?

Festival season is upon us, and the fanny pack is back in full swing. A lot of the fanny packs on the market right now are pretty pricey, and can cost upwards of $1,100! That's totally a rent paycheck right there. For a fad that is likely not to last too long, I thought it would be great to try to DIY one!
All I needed to buy was a $6 bag from Forever 21 and $4 leather trim, and I was all set. Chances are you have an old belt laying around (if not, hit up Forever 21 to find one for $4!) and a tube of E6000 adhesive in a junk drawer in your kitchen. Break 'em out, and let's get to DIYing.
Materials Needed:
Small Bag
Leather Trim
E6000 Adhesive
Cut out two small strips from your leather trim. My cuts measured 1.5" x 2.25", but this will depend on how wide your belt is. Next, glue the tops and bottoms of your strips to the back of the bag spaced evenly from the center. Let this dry for 24 hours. Finally, slide your belt into the bg loops you've created, and you're ready to wear your new fanny pack!

Okay, so I'm a few weeks tardy to the Lidstar party, but here we go! I have four of the six shimmering shades, and thought I'd show you how each of them look on my skin tone. My favorite shade so far is Fawn - I'm pretty sure I could wear it everyday. To be honest it's like a huge possibility. Anywho, I love that these shades paired so well with the lip gloss I chose to wear today, the e.l.f. x Alissa Ashley collab in Nude Glow! You all know I usually like to keep my lip colors in the nude family on a day-to-day basis, so not having to change up my lip products to work with the eyeshadows is a huge plus.

I've got pretty sensitive eyes and neither applying or wearing these for an extended period of time have negatively affected my eyes at all! On the Glossier site you can see that the shadows are also cruelty free, paraben free, and hypoallergenic (check out the site to see all of the claims). 

I definitely want to purchase the other two shades Cub and Lily to see how they look on my skin tone.  Moon is a bit ashy on me, so I'm not a huge fan of it. Besides Fawn being my favorite shade, it's also the one that applies the smoothest. For me, the other shades come out a tad patchy when swatched and when applied to my eyes. 

Another thing that impressed me is the fact that they totally don't transfer or crease! They remove easily with a makeup wipe or with Milky Jelly Cleanser, but if you accidentally rub your eyes, the shadow won't budge. 

As always, save 20% off your Glossier purchase by shopping with me at http://glossier.com/reps/aliciaenkhulzii! For easy access, hit the "Glossier" link in the menu bar above - it's always there!
