Emma Watson is without a doubt one the most liked celebrities in Hollywood. Her sweet personality makes all that she does instantly likable. She is also seen as fashion icon for many. Her mix of English prep and California cool is perfect for any summer outfit. I especially like this outfit she is seen in above because she looks so chic but considering she is pictured here in an airport, we can assume she chose a comfy outfit. This outfit is perfect for a casual summer day whether you are just relaxing or going out in the afternoon.

2. Gap Essential Short Sleeve U Neck T {Gap}
3. Maison Scotch Striped Cropped Trouser {Farfetch}
4. Leather Flat Sandals {ASOS}
5. Ray Ban Wayfayer Sunglasses {Farfetch}

What is your favorite part of this outfit and Emma's style? I really love these types of leather sandals that have come into style lately. I definitely will be getting a pair soon! I hope you all are having an amazing summer. Leave comments for another celebrity whose style you love and I will re-create their look!

Back to School: Backpack Essentials

As I prepare to head off to my first year of college, I have done what probably would seem to be an ridiculous amount of research on what I will need to bring with me. Most importantly, I wanted to know what all the essentials to have in your backpack include. Here are the items I plan to carry with me at all times and that I found to be most important!

Let's start off with the bag. This adorable backpack show above is from, none other than, Target! They've had some really cute backpacks for the back to school season and when I saw this one I couldn't pass it up. I also have another plain black backpack that is a bit more heavy duty than this one, but I hope to use this cute patterned bag as much as I can without it clashing with any of my outfits!

School supplies is obviously a necessity. My favorite items are Five Star notebooks and folders. I also carry with me a variety of pens and pencils to take notes and study with. Highlighters are also important study aids that can help to liven up your notes. One thing I never thought of until doing a bit of looking into what school supplies to bring was a mini stapler. When you have something to turn in during a college class, your professor with most likely not pass the one class stapler around the desk like I experienced in high school. Having your own mini stapler can be a life saver in case you had to print something out last minute and totally forgot to staple it before throwing it in your bag.

Marbled Stone Nails

Hey guys! I wanted to share this super cool nail art with you all in case you wanted to try out a new look. I followed a YouTube tutorial that you can check out {here} and I love the way it turned out. I changed the colors up a little bit but I really do think that it looks like a turquoise stone on your nails. It is so perfect for summer and you'll have tons of people asking you how you did your nails.

I hope you liked my spin on this awesome nail look. Although it can be time consuming, the end result is so worth it. And you could definitely change this to any color combo and create the illusion of different stones. Let me know if you try it out and if there are any other cool nail techniques or looks I should try out!

Summer Proof Makeup

The worst thing about summer is coming home from a super fun day running around in the sun, taking a look in the mirror and seeing your makeup smudged under your eyes. Then you are left wondering how long it was there and if anyone else thought you look looked like a rogue raccoon. In order to prevent this from ever happening, you need to summer proof your makeup!

Here are some of my favorite summer-proof products, however I wouldn't recommend going for a swim with any of them on. In my experience something can be as waterproof as can be but it'll still smudge on me, so I'd opt for no makeup when swimming. These products are great though if you are going to be out in the sun and you don't want everything to melt off.

1. Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Eyeshadow: These are great because they are so quick to apply and won't crease on you eyelids. they come in tons of great summer-y shades too!
2. Covergirl BB Cream: This product offers light coverage, hydration, and sun protection. You can't ask for much more in a face product during the summer time. It's super easy to reapply throughout the day because of it's sheer finish and will give you a health glow without looking like you caked on the makeup.
3. Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Stick: I use these as eye liner on my upper lash line and tight line. The are smudge proof and last all day, I love using the fun shades to add a pop of color to my look.
4. Maybelline Baby Lips: These chap sticks are perfect for the summer. Some offer light washes of colors and SPF which is perfect when you are out in the sun.
5. Maybelline Falsies Waterproof: I know I said waterproof doesn't work when swimming for me, but it definitely helps my mascara for smudging onto my skin. Falsies is one of my favorites too!
6. Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush: Some cream blushes I find to be too oily, but these blushes have such a light airy texture I don't feel like they are heavy on my skin.
