Shopping online done easy – affordable and just in time for spring!

  Me when I’m waiting for a package! lol 

Anytime I shop online, the first thing I look for — before even looking at the products is promotions. Promotions can really make your purchase cheaper, sometimes all you have to do is enter a code or your email when you check out! 

The next thing I look for is a “sale” page. Most people avoid it because they think the clothing is not as up to date as other pages like “newest releases.” Well, the “sale” page is how you save money. Many sale pages for clothing websites have products from the last newest release line which means it’s only less than a month old! Which means it’s still stylish! Yes, it’s possible to find something really ridiculous and very out of date in the sales pages, but don’t let it discourage you from getting a great, cute deal. 

So what I did was “shopped” for you. I shopped from 3 different online stores: forever21, charlotte russe, and h&m. All the items I chose are affordable and make great outfits. Enjoy!

Get the spring look: Dos and Don’ts

I’m so happy it’s spring. You know what that means? Bright colors, new hair, flowers. Those who fell into the winter and fall trance of matte dark lipsticks, dark colored eyeshadow and pale skin — fear no more, it’s time to get bold. 

Please do: 

  • Get out that bold red lipstick. Might as well pull out your pinks and corals  too. Sephora’s liquid lipstick has some of the brightest spring colors around.
  • Shop spring lines. Forever 21 and Kendall and Kylie’s line are affordable and bring out the latest and most stylish spring trends.
  • Try a new hair color. If you’re feeling bold enough, go blonde, pink, or even try grey like me! 
  • Paint your nails. Use yellows, pastel pinks, whites, greys and coffee colored polishes. These are the most popular colors this spring.
  • Use bright colored eyeshadow. I’m not the only one who’s been not using certain colors on my palette. This spring is the perfect time to experiment with some brighter colors. Blue and gold have been popular bright colors, try them out. You’ll be shocked!
  • Moisturize. The weather’s getting warmer, make sure you have a good face lotion. Also, oil serums have been trending. I use Korres Rose Brightening oil serum to even and brighten my skin. I just mix it with my foundation and my face feels hydrated.
  • Hike, go for a walk. It’s the perfect weather to do so. Breathe in the freshest air of spring, it’s good for you!

Please Don’t: 

  • Over do makeup. Yes, bright colors are in this spring, but if you use a bold lip color and eyeshadow and do heavy highlighter, that’s not as in. Try using a bold lip and light eye makeup or a bold eye and a nude rosey or mauve colored lipstick.
  • Spend all your time inside. Watch the flowers bloom, take a nap under the trees, make flower tattoos. Pinterest has some great spring activites and crafts, I’ll let you google “how to make flower tattoos” yourself, they’re sweet.

Need a brightening and tightening face mask? Found the perfect one:

If you know me, you know I love face masks. I love trying new ones all the time! Well, my friend recommended I try TonyMoly’s egg pore masks. This friend is obsessed with a lot of Korean beauty products and said TonyMoly does wonders. I’ve tried TonyMoly’s sheet masks for brightening from Urban Outfitters and it was hydrating and so refreshing. I decided to order one off Amazon.  

 First of all, how cute is this packaging? Just adorable! 

 On the inside is the actual mask. The consistency is really interesting. It looks like clay, but feels sort of like a light, whipped merengue. Going on the face, it’s smooth and spreads easily. You can either apply it all over your face or apply it to trouble spots. I used it all over my face and let it dry for 20 minutes and then wiped it off with a warm wash rag.

I’ve used it about 3 times a week for about a month now and I already see results. Others have noticed it too. After application, my skin feels soft and firm. After waiting for the redness to go away from the warm washrag, my skin tone looks bright just after the first application! If that is not miracle work, I don’t know what is!

4.9 out of 5

  • Easily applied
  • Cute packaging
  • Affordable (less than $10 on Amazon)
  • Quick results, noticeable after first couple applications
  • Refreshing and cooling
