A Shoe that Looks and Feels Designer, but is WAY Less Expensive

I love my high-end shoes, I'm obsessed with them, but for most of us, it's a rare treat when we can actually indulge in buying a pair for ourselves. There is something about that shoe that make you feel like a million bucks. But if you've ever bought a really expensive pair, you can see the huge difference between a high quality shoe and a low quality shoe.

I've been collecting high quality, expensive shoes for years now, so I feel I've become a bit of a shoe connoisseur, especially because they are hands-down my favorite accessory and really, my favorite thing to spend money on! 

I can tell a really cheap pair of shoes really quickly and you won't find me wearing them either because of how much it bothers me. What I didn't realize is that you can actually buy some incredibly inexpensive shoes that are actually very high quality.

In fact, these stiletto open toe snake print sandals from Tidebuy are just that, a high quality shoe at a very inexpensive price! 

When these shoes showed up at my door, getting as excited about shoes as I always do, I grabbed them out of the box and immediately put them on my feet! What I found is that the material, craftsmanship, and vegan leather of these shoes completely rival some very high end shoes! You can tell a big difference in the material and the sole when comparing a cheap to an expensive shoe, and this lovely little shoe completely looks and feels like something you would pay top dollar for! 

These shoes also have a fabulous snake print texture, especially around the heel, which in this gorgeous gold, really makes them stand out! I love the double straps with nice buckles that easily slide in and out. If you know you're shoes, you know that the buckles usually give cheap shoes away too. They're hard to maneuver, usually don't fit properly and can take you a lot longer to get in and out of. These shoes are absolutely easy to strap up and put on. The buckles are high quality and the vegan leather straps glide in and out easily.

I actually love vegan products but when it comes to shoes, never buy it, because they tend to not be as high quality. I'm completely impressed with how much better quality the vegan leather used on this shoe is. It completely rivals expensive real leather shoes, but you can feel good knowing you didn't have to hurt a poor animal to wear these babies!

See how I styled my gorgeous stiletto shoes from TideBuy here:

These shoes are fabulous right? I love the gold, black, and white together, and most of all, I love that these shoes look and feel like much more expensive designer shoes. Notice how they come with inserts and heel replacements too? You almost only always find this with high end designer shoes, but these shoes come with both!

If you would like to pick up these shoes for yourself, shop them today at TideBuy.com for only $41!

Happy Shopping!

The Classic White Summer Clutch at a Price You Won't Believe

There's something about summer whites, that have got me completely gaga this season.  I can't get enough of them. I'm still on the hunt for the perfect white dress (let me know if you find it!) But I've recently found a great little white crocodile print clutch bag I'm taking everywhere with me this summer!

This bag not only makes your outfit pop, thanks to the lovely white, but looks good on your arm with almost anything you're wearing. Thanks to the two different sets of straps it comes with, including a gorgeous chain detail strap, it makes it perfect to tote around for day, or tuck the strap away like I did here for a your night out!

I tend to be really picky when it comes to bags too. I hate a bag that looks cheap, so I normally steer clear of bags or clutches that are substantially marked down, but I couldn't believe the high quality of the clutch when it showed up at my door, because it only cost $10! Yes I'm dead serious, only $10 from Tidebuy! This Cool Retro Fancy bag is the perfect size to tote around the essentials, your cell phone, lip gloss, cash, card, and ID, and more! See below to see how my night time essentials fit in there just fine!

Not only that, but you get a nice zipper pocket in the middle perfect for tucking away cash so you won't be sure to lose it if you take this lovely little clutch out with the girls and have a few too many drinks, like I did. This clutch held up through the night no problem, and also had a nice little zip size pocket perfect for my ID and card, so I didn't have to worry about losing them either! 

Even though its white, this bag is sturdy and if you do unfortunately get a little dirt on it, the glossy exterior makes it super easy to just wipe it right off!

The bag is amazing and rivals $100 clutches I've bought in the past! When you look over the texture, the chain straps, and the stitching, there is now way any one would ever guess you only spent $10 on it! This bag absolutely blew my mind! 

Check out how I styled this lovely clutch from TideBuy here:

For as inexpensive as this bag is, you absolutely can't go wrong with adding it to your collection! So what are you waiting for? Pick it up from Tidebuy.com today!

Happy Shopping!

Can You Get Youth in a Bottle? You Just May: Comedica Hyaluronic Acid Review

As a beauty blogger, I have learned quite a bit over the years about the skin and products and formulas that can be very beneficial to the skin. I think often times a lot of us see some big scary words written on the outside of our beauty products and wonder what exactly the heck that is. I know when I first started writing about beauty and the many wonderful beauty products out there, I felt a bit intimidated by a lot it.

Once you start diving into the world of beauty, you start to pick up on words and remember that some of these scary sounding words are actually really beneficial to the skin, and may actually already be IN your skin!

For example, hyaluronic acid. Sounds scary right? I know when I first heard of it, I was like, you want me to do what with it? Put it on my face? Something that has the word acid in it?? Seriously? But as soon as you do a little research you learn that, guess what? The skin already contains hyaluronic acid. Yep, that's right, the skin and your whole body actually, it's even in your eyes! In fact, your body actually contains A LOT of hyaluronic acid, and 50% of it can be found in your skin. 

So you may be wondering, If I have it, why do I need more of it, especially in my skincare products? Well here is where you're going to be lining up to buy yourself some hyaluronic acid. It's actually found in the deep underlying dermal tissues of the skin, that keeps your skin looking younger, smoother, and gives it more elasticity. It binds to water making your skin much more moisturized, which we all know, makes it look more youthful as well. Along with all the other nasty things that come with age, like the gray hair, the achy joints, your body also starts to produce less hyaluronic acid, and in turn makes you look and probably feel older too. 

Now you see why you would be wanting to add this ingredient to your skin, right? I know when I read that,  I was thinking to myself, yep, I'm totally on board with applying some acid to my face now, as long as its hyaluronic acid.

I recently got to try out Comedica Hyaluronic Acid Serum, and after reading up on the benefits, I couldn't wait to see what it could for my skin. As you now know, this serum is hydrating, and offers a lot of anti-aging benefits with continued use, such as lightening up sun spots, and making it more soft and supple as well. It also makes your skin more resilient to the environment and aging.  

When I opened up my Comedica Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum, I put a couple drops on my fingers and then patted it over my face. I found I only needed 2 drops max, and that was plenty to leave my skin feeling well moisturized. I was especially surprised to see how well it really did moisturize. I have pretty dry skin naturally, and I almost always have to use a cream over my serum, because serum's are rarely ever moisturizing enough to use on their own. I should have know this serum would be different though, considering hyaluronic acid holds up to a whopping 1000 times its weight in water. You feel it as soon as you use it. My skin felt soft and smooth, and I went to reach for my night cream, and was like, no, I don't think I need it this time. And I actually haven't for the whole 2 weeks I've been trying out this product.

I use my Comedica Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum every day after washing my face. I've loved that my skin has felt so soft during use, and that I have noticed my skin also feels more supple and much more moisturized then normal, especially considering how much time I spend outside in the drying sun this time of year.

I kept a good eye on my skin while using this as well too, because this time of year no doubt brings on the sun spots for me. It doesn't matter how well I keep my face sun screened up and wear my big sunglasses and wide brim sun hat to keep the sun off my face. I find those sun spots creeping up in the early summer and then by the middle of summer there are new ones popping up almost daily. I know this time of year is when I really need to break out the hyaluronic serum and apply it religiously to diminish those sun spots and help stop the new ones from popping up.

I really put this serum to the test considering it's the middle of summer and my face has completely turned into a million freckles and unfortunately has some really ugly big sun spots too, but while using this serum, I have definitely noticed a change. My skin has lightened up a bit over the last few weeks and a lot of the bigger, more noticeable sun spots have started to fade, and quite dramatically actually.

I absolutely will not go another summer without my Comedica Hyaluronic Acid Serum. I spend a lot of time in the sun, because I can't help it. I'm addicted to it, but I do my best to keep my skin protected and this serum at least makes it look like I don't spend that much time in the sun. I've been more then happy with my results and would recommend it to anyone in their thirties or older, because let's face it, we all have nasty sun spots by this point. Even if you're in you're 20s, this is a great product to start using anyway to keep that skin looking and feeling healthy and young for as long as possible. I actually got my first sun spots in my late 20's so I would have really appreciated this serum back then too!

If you would like to get your glow back and fade some of those nasty sun spots, then do your self a favor and pick up the Comedica Pure Hylarunoic Acid Serum today. Why wouldn't you do this for yourself when its only $11 anyway? Yeah, how often do you find effective skincare that inexpensive? Uh huh, just about never.

Happy Beautifying!

Geometric Prints and an Unexpected Back on a Casual Tank Top: Oasap

Geometric prints showed up all over the place on the spring runways this year, and while maybe a lot of us thought, eh, this one will come and go, it's actually proving us wrong. Geometric prints were not only a fun winter and spring print to wear, but you can bet it's showing up on lots of fun summer fashion this year too!

I found this adorable geometric print knee-lenght skirt in super bright, summery colors from Oasap (Only $17!), and I've been absolutely living in this skirt! This skirt is fun, both the colors and print are completely eye-catching and sure to make a fun statement this season, but the knee length makes it perfect for day time casual, the office, or a night out on the town!

I also picked out a cute little aqua tank top from Oasap to go with it, but this isn't just any old tank top, turn around, and you will find a low cut, open back with cute little white bows! Check out my pics below just to see how fabulous this tank top really is!

The tank top is super soft and comes in pink or gray as well! It's a great little fit and feels super soft on the skin and is flowy just enough to really get great movement when wearing around.

To tie in my look, I also added this chic Vegan Leather waist belt in beige ($9 from Oasap). This belt also comes in a variety of colors, including red, black, and navy blue. The belt although super inexpensive, looks elegant and feels high quality. It really ties in the top and the skirt as well, giving the outfit a much more complete look.

I love this outfit for day or night! The look is so versatile, it's so easy to get tons of different uses out of it! You can pair it with some chic flat sandals or wedges, and a big satchel for day, or like I did here for night, wear with one of your favorite pair of high-heeled sandals and a great little clutch!

This outfit is so fun and although the geometric print is a huge trend right now, this is a look I can see myself wearing for years to come. This outfit is adorable and completely chic and suitable for so many different occasions, but I love that you turn around and get the cool wow factor of the open back and bow detailing on the back of the tank top!

This is honestly probably one of my favorite outfits I've gotten in a long time, and its just the tip of the iceberg for what you will find at Oasap.com. You can find so many fun, chic, trendy clothing for practically next to nothing! They are always getting in a ton of new stock everyday, so there is always lots to choose from too!

Whenever a new trend hits the runways, I go to Oasap immediately because they always have that trend before anyone else, AND you can save yourself lots of money buy buying it super inexpensively at Oasap too!

Be sure to shop Oasap today lovelies!

Happy Shopping!
