As most of you know, I’m not particularly afraid of color…so neon for me is no problem at all. But what about those of you that are not used to so much color and just want a small pop of neon? Then try a fun pop in a neon necklace, bright pair of shoes, or a belt. Here, I’m wearing nude wedges which I love because they sort of tone down the outfit and make it a bit more sophisticated… and of course nude shoes elongate the leg (and we all know that I’m a shortie) and I can use all the help I can get! Do you have any neon in your closet or plan on including neon in your closet any time soon?

I want a proper domain for my blog (so that instead of .blogspot.com, it’s just .com) but some dude (or dudette) owns the name and isn’t listing it for sale even though no one is using the name! So that means I might have to change my blog name…sob. Just a heads up for y’all!
I bought this dress and shirt in J.Crew Factory a few weeks because it was on sale. No, I did not need it…at all. But the price was too good to pass up! You understand me, right?? I think I may be crossing the border of possible shopaholic to OMG SHIRA YOU’RE A LEGIT SHOPAHOLIC…. so I’m really going to try and limit purchases for the next…well, as long as I could. Ha ha. I’ll let you know how it goes:)
I’m on the fence about this outfit. In my head, it seemed really cute but actually seeing these photos and I’m not liking it as much as I thought it would. The bold colorblocking with the printed skirt might be a bit much for my comfort zone. What do you think?
Also, who noticed that I progressed to a half tuck? 🙂 I’m working my way slowly toward tucking shirts in all the way. Who knows, maybe one day I’ll tuck a shirt in completely!
I’ve never felt comfortable tucking in my shirts. It started in high school with my hideously unflattering pleated uniform with school rules requiring that the shirt must be tucked in at all times. Let’s just say that it wasn’t my best look (ha). I still feel extremely self conscious tucking in my shirts and if shirts don’t come in petite, they fall at my knees (well almost). I was considering getting the shirt tailored and cut when I decided to tie it at the waist instead. It instantly made me look more put together and neater. So this is as close to tucked in as I get! How do you all wear your shirts?

2. Mary Kay Acne Treatment Gel is the best benzyl peroxide product-at least for me. I gave up on benzyl peroxides because although they are so helpful for break outs, they’ve always completely dried up my skin and made it red and blotchy. For some reason, this is the only benzyl peroxide product that works without irritating and drying my skin. Thanks to Batsheva, Mary Kay beauty consultant, I discovered this product! You can buy products from Mary Kay through her here.
3.Benefit Hoola Bronzer….finally a natural and beautiful bronzer without the fake looking shimmer and sparkles! It’s surprisingly hard to find a good bronzer without shimmer; when you want to look naturally tan, sparkles don’t usually get you there. 😉 I like Bobbi Brown bronzer (you can find it here) too but they don’t have the perfect shade for my skin tone.
6.Estee Lauder Pure Color Blush has a great, silky texture and comes in a lot of pretty shades. Again, I like this because I prefer not to have shimmer in my blush; I have Nars Orgasm if I’m in a sparkly mood.
8.Neutrogena One Step Gentle Cleanser is the perfect, gentle cleanser for every day use. Don’t believe in false claims that expensive cleansers can impart antioxidants or clear your skin from acne. The amount of time it’s on your skin before you wash it off is not enough for the ingredients to penetrate.
