Didn't do anything this weekend, Perhaps a schedule?

brunette-blogger-hanna-lei
 Last semester I feel like I was doing it all. I was in school (full time of course) had an internship working an average of 25 hours a week and worked somewhere between 8 and 12 hours ever weekend as a model. And managed to put up a plethora of beauty related product reviews for you guys to read. This semester though I seem to be falling behind, and to be honest I'm not quite sure where all of my time went, although there are a few culprits. This weekend I was supposed to study for a math test which of course didn't happen, among quite a few other things I wanted to get done. The only saving grace was the gorgeous (in my opinion of course) beauty review roundup I did

So I've decided to change a few things before I fail out of school and get a permeant crease in the couch from where I've been sitting. My first and biggest goal is to completely cut out watching television, and after a bit of a beige yesterday I'm totally ready for it. I'd also like to get in better shape doing distance running three times a week and 15 minutes of yoga daily, which I think will help me to focus and feel better.

The most helpful thing I can do however (I think that anyways) is to create a list with things that I need to do, and have done on it. So here's what I have this week. So far I've already turned in my CREO assignment, and that's about it. I tried studying for a math exam but my friend distracted me for the past two hours and I'm sort of at an impasse anyways. Then more school stuff on Tuesday and hopefully time to get a blog post like the Long Skirt and Leopard Print outfit. Wednesday I'm hoping I get a modeling job that I want and hope to do well on my Ethics midterm. Thursday more blogging and some homework. Friday being a good granddaughter and reviews, Saturday studying. Sunday I have no idea. 

* Also... This would be in addition to my current every week day school responsibility.

Roundup: February 2015 Beauty Reviews

february-beauty-reviews
 I know nobody wants to hear excuses, but I have to use one. I absolutely love when I can do a whole lot of reviews over various beauty products, and then share a weekly roundup, but with school kicking my butt right now, I'm lucky to even get an every other day blog post up, so forget about product reviews. However while procrastinating studying for a math test I decided I could do a month's roundup (maybe that's what I'll do for the future). Oh and try not to judge the makeup, I was having fun with it!


How to Wear: Long Skirts and Leopard Print

skirt / shirt / shoes / bag / hat 

Prints are something that I can go a little crazy with, and not always in a good way, and from my observations I'm not the only one that has this little issue. So when I had a few suggestions like "How Should I wear a floor length maxi skirt" I decided I could make an outfit guide over it. And add an accent of leopard print so this could be inspiration for adding an animal print. For the real life version you can check out my animal print dress look. I decided to go with an outfit that although casual and meant to be worn exploring the city or going to class, still looks super put together and elegant. 

  • Skirt - Maxi skirts are a fantastic outfit piece for anyone. If you're going through a weight transition (in either direction) they've got you, and in an elegant way. I went with this black one for the slimming effect and the pleats keep the skirt from looking like a bag. 
  • Shirt - Black and white will never go out of style, and since white looks good with almost any hair / skin color I picked this sweater. Of course since the skirt is long and flows you have to make sure not to pick out a shirt that's too thick or baggy. 
  • Shoes - For me adding prints correctly is all about where you place them, and I even like to go by a fraction system if I'm worried about how much is too much. Most of the time these shoes will be covered by the skirt but when people see them you know you'll get complements on the leopard print and minimalist design. 
  • Bag - The big leopard piece is of course this gorgeous bag. It's one of those splurge pieces but I couldn't help but add it to the look. To match the color I went with black accents and gold hardware. 
  • Hat - I am and always will be a cat lover. I've done outfits with cat sweatshirts and have a cat earned beanie so of course when I saw this sun hat with cat ears I needed to add it to my outfit. Plus I think it ties in nicely with the leopard print. 

Become an UnderWarrior & Save the Undies w/ U by Kotex®

Like a little more than half of the world's population I'm lucky enough to be born female. Of course this means a lot of great things like wearing  colorful makeup, hair bows and yoga pants without being judged (not too much anyways). But unfortunately it isn't all awesome, and I'm reminded of that monthly.

I've been lucky not to have too much of an issue with cramps but there is one thing, other than the annoyance is that I've ruined more than one pair of underwear that I really liked. So to keep this from happening I became one of those girls with "period panties". I told all of cute underwear goodbye for the duration of my periods and swapped them out with what is commonly referred to as granny panties, that way I didn't have to worry about the heartbreak of ruining my favorites.

Luckily with 3D Capture Core Pads I don't have to do this anymore. They are the latest in feminine hygiene products and have saved me more than a few times from those embarrassing female moments. Not only are these pads on the stylish side but they are easy to open, have wings so they're stay in place and are ultra thin. Oh and this is probably the most important they're leak free and as someone who's used them for the past six months I can say I've never had a problem and they're much more comfortable than the ones I replaced them with.

Just in case of emergencies I always keep a few in my backpack so I can avoid any in school embarrassing moments. They're so thin that I can just forget about them until I have to use them.

Review: Be Me Nail Art Pens (Harvest Collection)

2-in-one-brush-art-pen
 I've had a love affair with nail polish since middle school, and have a lacquer collection to prove it. If it's out there, from greys and blacks to neons, from matte to a very pigmented glitter I want to have it, and of course use it on my nails. However I've never been all that talented at doing fancy nail art with my polishes, and whenever I've seen all of the Pinterest and Instagram pictures I have a ton of envy. So when the people over at Be Me offered to send me their nail art pens to try out, which are specifically made to create intricate designs with ease. 

I was given the harvest collection. It comes in a black box with artwork featuring lots of different nail designs you can try out, the Be Me logo and a window to see the nail art pens that are stored inside. The box holds eight different nail art colors an orange, blue, lime green, dark pink, bronze, black, dark brown and a medium purple. They are doubled by a tab that holds them in the middle.

How to use them. For the regular nail polish brush simply untwist and paint nails as usual. I found all of the polishes to be opaque and quick drying. Doing the work with the pen is a little harder. You're going to have to pull up on the tab quite hard to get it out. Once you do you'll see the pen as pictured above. Then squeeze (this will also be a little hard to do), to get the nail polish out and draw.

Verdict: I love all the colors that are contained in the Be Me Nail Art Pens Harvest Collection. Applying them as nail color is super easy but doing the pen work does take a little bit of practice to get the hang of. However for less than $25 I think it's totally worth it.
