VARSITY BLUES



Double denim -- so wrong yet so right.
Shoutout to 2001 Britney and Justin for introducing us to this unconventional trend. 

I've really been into baggier denim at the moment, and found these jeans tucked away in the back of my closet right on time! An oversized denim jacket tied around the waist is a way to embrace this 90's trend in the summer.
Pair with a crop to eliminate loosing your figure under the baggier pieces.

Couch Surfing with Furniture.com




I recently revealed to you all my love of browsing online furniture retailers, and casually strolling through Home Goods or decor stores alike. This actually happens to be one of me and my besties favorite past times, but this isn't about her- it's about my boyfriend and his couch.

Spending most of my days there has become routine. However, the more time I spent the more I came to realize my dislike for his couch. Come to find out, he isn't a fan of the couch's lack of cushion, bounce back, or overall appearance either. So naturally, when I heard about furniture.com and their easy online search portal, we jumped at the opportunity to shop the sales!

Furniture.com is your one stop shop for quality home furnishings and decor; combining thousands of different styles and designs you can browse at your own convenience! Their easy to navigate website let's you find exactly what you desire, while the sales page helps to find all the deals and discounts in your area.
Because my boyfriend and I prefer to try before we buy, we opted for the local sales finder and began our new couch mission!




When it comes to styles we definitely did not want to shy away from his identity and aesthetic, but mix in a more feminine appeal. I personally prefer a nice cozy couch to lounge on, while he likes one to sit comfortably on but that is also ideal for napping. We both agreed on no leather and to stay away from browns, for the couch is typically the focal point of the living room.



With the help of furniture.com we were able to not only narrow down retailers to save time, but also browse their online selection to help find our perfect couch!
Furniture.com takes the stress out of furniture shopping, allowing you to shop with ease and enjoy time decorating your oasis, humble abode, or home of your dreams!

SNAPCHAT SESSIONS -- SMOKEY EYE



If we're being honest, I could virtually spend all day getting ready. 
Every now and then I will record these mini tuts for Snapchat, but for those of you who don't follow me (which you should-- djkiitty), I wanted a way to keep the videos around longer than 24 hours.

Some of the tutorials will be longer than others, parts may be left out (blame itunes and Netflix), but nonetheless here's a little peek into my getting ready process!




Smokey eyes will forever live in my top five; which is why I chose to create a classic intense gradient eye for my first look!
Applying a liner before shadow acts as a base. This not only helps to intensify black pigment but longevity as well. Blending a small amount of black shadow into the crease provides a placement guide. Doing this avoids color from going too high into the crease- aka panda eyes. Finish by going back over crease with transition shade to further blend and blur, if needed.
