GIG Spotlight: Top 10 Style & Beauty Wants for Spring!

GIG

My favorite blogger community, The Girls’ Inspired Group AKA GIG, does these really fun monthly themed posts which they invite the other GIG members to do as a sort of contest and sometimes they offer up awesome giveaway prizes and things! This month’s themed post is “Spring Fever” and they’ve invited members to post on it in order to compete for “Blog of the Month” for GIG so I thought I’d share some beauty and fashion things I’ve been wanting to pick up lately for this post.

You can see the GIG original post on Spring Fever on their blog – here.

Lust List: Spring Edition

10 Styles I’m Ready to Rock for Spring!

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Lust List so I thought I’d do one with a specific theme – Spring!

I’m so excited about Spring and Summer, though I’m not excited about the weather turning super hot as it gets pretty scorching here in California, but it will be a nice change of pace from Winter and I’m looking forward to going to the beach and pool and all that jazz.

Aside from being excited about the weather, I’m really excited about the colors in Spring fashions. I am someone who habitually wears black, like all the damn time, but I am trying my best to change that this year and incorporate a lot more color into my wardrobe. I’ve had a look around online and here are some items I’m most excited about this Spring!

Hello Everyone!

So, we’ve finally reached the end :-‘( of the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways event and I’m quite thrilled (LOL) as planning this event was pretty hectic what with all of the posts and things and getting all the items together PLUS my own Christmas to – do list, but it has actually been a lot of fun to do besides the stress of it as I find I work quite well under pressure and have managed to get all the posts out without too many snags. PLUS I really have enjoyed seeing all of the amazing comments and tweets, re-tweets, and everything it has been tons of fun and very exciting for me all at the same time so thank you so much to everyone who has participated thus far and if not, you still have time to participate in this last hoorah giveaway!

Today’s prize is the KORRES Goddess Beauty Color Collection which I personally picked up from Sephora. I thought it was only right I should be the last sponsor as it’s my giveaway and all and I hope it’s just as amazing as the others, if not a bit more so, you know, because it’s from me 😉 .

I went with this lovely gift set because it was within my budget and because I love KORRES and I have been raving on about their primers since the inception of this blog so I thought it was pretty fitting!

Also, if you want to know the winners of this giveaway, check back in 3 days and the post for who won which prizes will be up!

Anyhow, I hope you’ll all sign up for this last giveaway and I hope you have a lovely holiday, whatever you have planned – stay safe and happy.

Today’s giveaway is a bit different than the others, though still really awesome!

Obviously today’s giveaway is for jewelry, but I think the items up for grabs are really lovely and I’ve thought to include them as the company offering them up is ran by my mom (and I occasionally help her out with blogging and the like ;-)).

She’s very kindly given me these 3 pieces from her Amazon shop for giveaway, but she carries loads of other items including ear cuffs, wraps, necklaces, earrings, and other unique items! The name, Bella Graciela, is named for both of my grandmothers and I think it rolls rather nicely off the tongue, don’t you?

Anyway, up for grabs is a cell phone dust plug which is an adorable rhinestone studded kitten, a porcelain ceramic guitar necklace which is both handmade and hand painted by students, and adorable fashion vintage style earrings!

I hope you’ll all sign up and, as always, you have 48 hours to do so!

Special thanks to my mom (Hi Mom!) & Bella Graciela for sponsoring this giveaway!

Resident Evil: Retribution Poster

Happy Friday Everyone!

I hope everyone is having a lovely day! I’m super excited because I get to go see Resident Evil:Retribution today! On another hand, I am kind of bummed that I missed International Chocolate Lover’s Day (or something) which was on Wednesday. Any old excuse to eat more chocolate is fine by me! Anyhow, today’s fashion finds are inspired by Claire Redfield (movie and video game versions!). I hope you enjoy and let me know if you’ll be watching the film or not or how it was if you already saw it last night.

Nora James Leather Double Strap Harness Belt

 

Nora James Leather Double Strap Harness Belt; $179

I feel like this one should be on both this post and my previous post for fashion finds inspired by Alice (which you can see – here!) because they’ve both technically worn harnesses, but alas, I didn’t think of it until now. Isn’t this one lovely though?!

Urban Decay - Naked Palette

Urban Decay Naked Eye Shadow Palette; $50

Honestly, who doesn’t want this palette? It’s the perfect palette for any day every day makeup looks. I can’t count the ways and days I’ve pined for this one! Plus, I think it’s so appropriate for Claire because she looks so natural.

Beige Scoop Neck Tank Top; £6.00

Gotta have those basics! Claire wears a lot of earthy tones and beige colors so this is a great piece to highlight that. Plus, it’s super affordable and looks comfy which you really need to be if you’re out to kill some zombies, you know?

Simply Flawless Pressed Powder

Alicia Silverstone for Juice Beauty – Simply Flawless Pressed Powder; $24

Tripp NYC -Fishnet Underlay Jeans in Black – $65

I’ve seen Claire with ripped jeans in almost every Resident Evil. Though it’s not too prominent in the VG version of her; in the VG she actually sports ripped jean shorts instead, but I like this look better, especially with how these have the fishnet underlay. It’s punk chic!

Beige Notch Lapel Biker PU Leather Zip Vest

Beige Notch Lapel Biker PU Leather Zip Vest; $36.16

I love the sort of punk biker look that Claire has in the films. She looks so improvised, but it really works. I love the down to earth, yet punky look they give her!

Red Beige Pocket Scoop Neck Lace Back Vest

Faded Coral Scoop Neck Tank; $27

Again, with the basics. Every female (and males too, actually) almost always has some kind of casual tank on at some point. Basic earthy tones really seem to be the look of Claire (at least in my mind).

Knitted Cord Bracelets - Set of four in Chocolate and Caramel Brown Shades

Knitted Cord Cuff Bracelet; $33.88

As I said, earth tones seem to be a theme with Claire in the films for me. And it could be that it’s just me, but whatever, I really like it!

So that’s all for my Claire Fashion Finds; what do you guys think?

Is there anything in particular that you imagine Claire Redfield to be wearing ?

Will you be going out to see Resident Evil:Retribution tonight like me?
