5 Gifts, $7 - $14 @F21

'Tis the season, and I'm thinking of all the gifts I might get... and what I need to get for other people, so I thought I'd share in case it helps!! This might seem like an advertisement for Forever 21, but I just so happened to find a few great gifts there for FANTASTIC prices.

1. Ombre Nail Kit - $6.80
Three sets: Mint/Teal,  Pink/Hot Pink, & Lavender/Purple. Each comes with 5 colors, one of which is stock full of glitter! (Also comes with cute packaging!)

In Gold or Gunmetal, this bracelet looks like it cost way more than it actually does! (Aren't you the best friend ever?!)

3. The GodfatherTop Gun, & Back to the Future Tanks - $13.80
These vintage-y shirts are for that classic-loving friend!

4. Glitter Eye Palette - $7.80
This super girly collection of creamy shadows come is two sets, Black/Multi (first two pictures), and Grey/Multi (second two pictures).

5. Knit Panda, OwlKitten, & Wolf Slipper Socks- $5.00
These cute, warm knit slippers are the perfect gift for your besties!

Earth Toned Jewelry: Summer Favorite

Hey everyone! Summer is right around the corner, and I thought I would show you some of my favorite jewelry pieces that I like to wear for the season!
*Most of the jewelry is from Forever 21 because they have a ton of trendy and affordable pieces!

From Forever 21
1. These earrings are perfect for when I want to add a boho touch to an outfit! They are super lightweight, perfect for running around town in, and they can be dressy or casual!

2. I LOVE wearing layered bracelets, and beaded ones are perfect for summer, especially in a bronzy color! These look good on all skin tones, and go with almost anything! Beaded bracelets work great with me because a lot of other bracelets tend to fall and slide off my wrists. The beaded ones are from Forever 21, and the weaved one is from a local boutique.

From Forever 21
3. This is a great statement ring, I love wearing it for special occasions! It would look adorable with a high-low skirt, flowy tank, and wedge booties!

Candle Ramble

Hey everyone! I LOVE candles, especially the ones at Bath and Body Works, but who wants to pay 20 dollars for a candle? Not me. That's why I buy these, they cost around $3 at Walmart, they smell amazing, and last a long time (depending on how much you burn them). They come in a variety of scents, the ones I used were Blackberry Tart and Tangerine & Raspberry. I can't wait to go buy some more!

Anthropologie - PARFUM

In case you didn't know, Anthropologie has some pretty amazing fragrances. While browsing through their perfume collection, I noticed some markers... and realized: They're actually solid perfume sticks that are set up like a marker for easy application and transportation; just put it in your bag and go!! One of my biggest concerns with perfume is always: "What if the bottle breaks when I'm toting it around in my bag?!" ...No issue of that here! Each fragrance is inspired by a different flavor of tea and the titles of each pencil are based on the tea's place of origin. With six to chose from and each $10, there really is something for everyone. Really!! Whether you are more of a fresh, floral, spice, fruity, or woodsy kinda girl - you'll find a scent you love!
Each scent is a different color!!

Tea Green
Hamarikyu Gardens by Marypierre: green tea-inspired, featuring sweetened lemon and bergamot zest, verbena and the softest amber (FRESH)

Bright Yellow
1856 Darjeeling by Adriana Medina: touches of cardamom, mint, fresh jasmine and cedarwood highlight this yellow tea blend (FLORAL/WOODSY)

Peach (Shown Above)
Cape Of Good Hope by Claude Dir: a steeped blend of red tea leaves and lemon, gardenia petals and musk (FLORAL)

5 O'Clock At Belvoir Castle by Stephen Nilsen: crisp bergamot and heady jasmine, sandalwood and damp moss (SPICE)

Silk Road Caravan by Stephen Nilsen: white tea buds and fresh apricot paired with peony and vanilla (FRUIT/FRESH)

Taverns & The Hague by Caroline Sabas: exotic Oolong spiked with mandarin and lemon zest, violet leaves and rich musk (FRESH)
