[Lifestyle/VIDEO] WE VLOG #01: Battle of the Year Screening & Justin Bieber Dancers

So if you haven't seen, Steve and I have posted our first vlog!!! 
It's always so highly requested I figured we might as well give it a go. Normally I shy away from vlogging not only because I am pretty private person but because I honestly feel like I am just not good at it. I feel like my life isn't all that interesting most days and when we do have things going on I'm definitely more of a "let's experience" vs. a "let's document" type of person. 

I tried none the less and this is the result. I actually am pretty happy with the way it turned out and I've been getting so much positive feedback I would for sure consider making these Vlogs a reoccurring thing on my channel. Steve and I talked about maybe once a week we would choose a day and vlog it. We are not interested in daily vlogging or anything like that, for a multitude of reasons, but once a week may be manageable. 


Hope you all enjoy!!!

Talk to you soon :)

[FASHION] Little Frenchie. Casual OOTD - Late Dinner and a Movie

French Bulldog Tank - H&M (recent) (Somewhat Similar Here)
Shoes - TOMS Classic Black (HERE) (not the best looking shoes but SO comfy!)
MCM Mini Stark Backpack in Cognac (also seen HERE)
Earrings - Chanel Studs (would LOVE these)

In the spirit of wanting to do more fashion posts on my blog I bring you a casual look from last night. Steve and I quickly got ready to grab some sushi for dinner and ended up catching a movie while we were out. 

Nothing fancy just some cut off shorts and comfy flats. 
I am loving this ADORABLE French Bulldog Tank that I bought from H&M a couple days ago - I can't get over it!

Left my hair natural per usual, no eyeshadow - just relaxed and casual.

(the little pink bag is from the Sanrio store we stopped at. ^_^ grabbed a few goodies)

Have a wonderful weekend and I'll talk to you all very soon.

[Beauty] Favorite MAC Blushes

From Bright to Light here are my all time favorite MAC Blushes :)

Many of these are Limited Edition colors but I have found and linked almost all of them for you ^_^ just click the name to be re-directed. 


Bite of an Apple (similar color HERE)

Hope this was helpful to you all and that you find some new colors to play with (or re-discover some oldies you have lying around in your makeup collection ^_^) At some point I may do a video showing what all of these look like on - let me know if that is something that may interest you all :) I didn't swatch these because I find most blushes are not true to swatch. For example, Launch Away! shows up almost as nothing - a very light, white pink but on my cheeks it's a much more dolly, baby, sweet pink. 

Thank you so much for reading! 

I am uploading a VLOG video on my YouTube Channel right now so be sure to check it out :) 

Love you all,

[FASHION] Hot Summer Days = Constantly Casual. One Teaspoon LOVE + a new CHANEL

(lol I did not wear this to the gym btw haha I know it looks like that but I went with Steve to a local tricking place to meet up with people before heading to dinner. The upstairs has some random work out stuff so that's why you can see it in the background - I always get questions from you guys when I take photos here so I thought I'd explain.)

Tank: H&M
Bag: Chanel Diamond CC Camera Bag 

I know I haven't had many fashion posts lately and I apologize! 
#1. I got in trouble for taking outfit photos outside lol.
#2. I've been lazy and it's too dang hot to dress up.

So...with that being said here you have one of my current go to looks. Pretty much a no brainer - cut off shorts and a tank. O_o Sometimes I'll get wild and throw on a utility vest or jacket on top ; P 

I HAVE to talk about these shorts though - One Teaspoon - BEST brand for shorts I've ever owned. I've been wearing them alllllllll summer and I can't get enough. I think I have purchased about 8 pairs so far. I love them! They feel like they are custom made and distressed. Pricy but a lot of times you can get a good deal on them through Karmaloop/MissKL and overall they're classics that are only going to get better with wear. 

Use REP CODE - HOLLYANNAEREE on for 20% OFF your first purchase and 10% OFF every purchase after that!

PLUS Sign Up for Ebates (HERE) to Earn CASH BACK almost any time you Online Shop!

The ones I am wearing here are called the Domino Trashwhores (AWFUL name -__-) which were originally $90 - I paid $30 PLUS got 4% Cash Back through Ebates = DEAL! 

Now this style is obviously VERY short (as most of their shorts seem to be) but when it gets to be a certain degree outside you end up not caring lol. Plus if you get a longer utility vest/jacket or cardigan you are all set. I see a lot of people tie a shirt around with some of the higher waist shorts too. (I can't wear high waisted shorts because I have a short torso and I feel like it's not really comfortable with a belly button piercing either.) All of the styles also are about an inch or two longer in the back so they definitely cover your butt (much better than the UNIF shorts I've tried) otherwise I would NOT be wearing these shorts lol. 

If you were looking to invest in pair I would recommend the Bandits or the Hunger Bandits - they are a bit longer and have a fold over hem vs. all that fraying just hanging there. (Which I know many of you will prefer.)

In order of preference the styles I own are as follows -

- Trashwhores (These are just TOO short in my opinion - probably hence the name lol - but since I have them and got a good deal I do still wear them.)

These have just been a summer staple for me and I don't hear very many people talk about them so I thought I'd share. Personally I have a VERY difficult time finding shorts, it seems like they all look terrible on me or feel uncomfortable. I like things that are not too tight on the waist and my legs are obviously not stick thin, I don't want something that's going to be skin tight. I feel like every brand makes shorts that are made for people with tiny thighs :'(
 I always buy my shorts one size bigger than my jeans for comfort so with most of these I purchased a size 27, (I do have one in a 26 though that I purchased most recently and I take a size 26 in all jeans currently) that gives me a lot of space in the waist but not enough for them to be pulled down over my hips which is exactly how I like my shorts to fit : ) I DO wish they would incorporate some slightly longer styles for a bit more modesty but what can ya do.

Now I don't always wear shorts with heels - normally I'll do flip flops or something like that but if I am going out I'll usually try to dress it up a tad and wear a heel paired with something longer over to cover the sides and at least part of the back of the shorts. (I had a green utility vest with me this day but it was so hot during the day especially inside this building I couldn't wear it until later when it cooled down.) Wearing heels with shorts can make your legs look a lot nicer especially if shorts are not your most flattering look - these Soirée heels from Jeffrey Campbell are super comfortable and easy to walk in. (Also from Karmaloop/MissKL)

Lastly, I know you are all drooling over this bag and I've been getting a lot of questions on it. This is the Diamond CC Camera Bag from Chanel's Fall 2013 line. They have two sizes and this is the smaller of the two (they also have a flap style version but I don't love it). I feel like this was reasonably priced from the brand considering it is a full leather bag done is super soft lambskin and features the classic burgundy leather interior. The chain strap also has a little leather panel on top for comfort. (You'll see this in a lot of Chanel's fall line up. I honestly wasn't a fan of that look at first but it's growing on me.) If you would like a separate review post on this bag complete with DSLR photos and pricing please let me know in the comments below :) 

Other than that hope you are all having an awesome day and I will talk to you very soon!
