Burberry Yum Yum

This season, Burberry has created a new line of sunglasses featuring pairs that fold up into a petite little case. I'm the kind of person who buys cheap sunnies and throws them in my purse so they're always on hand - no case because it's just too bulky and takes up too much room in my purse. I'm loving that they've created foldable sunglasses to fit into a tiny case for so not only do your sunnies stay unharmed but you save space! Anything that doubles as a space saver to me is absolutely wonderful.

You're My Best Friend

Friendship bracelets are just all the freakin' rage. Whether they're made with rhinestones, studs, or other hardware, they're a fun way of adding color to your wrists. Stack em on with your other jewelry for some lovely looking arms.

Some of my favorite bracelets from BrooklynThread (How delicious are the colors of these... I need them all!):

When I Grow Up...

...I want to be a man repeller!

I always get so excited when I see that Leandra has added a new post to her blog! This girl is the shit, in a fabulously chic man-repelling way. She seems like a cool chick to hang out with, go shopping, and ride along with as you partake in man-repelling activities. I could for sure use some man-repelling inspiration, as I've already gotten my boy, and I don't need anyone else. I only hope that one day I can learn afford to dress as repellingly chic as her. One day!

Anyways, if you haven't checked out her blog then you are a sad, sad person.
What are you waiting for?!

Dear Stranger

A lovely little note I came across on my walk to class a few weeks back. It's comforting to know that there are still some genuinely nice people out there.

Hope you all had a lovely Easter!

Top Eight

While creeping my blogger dashboard, I came across one of the nicest tag posts I've seen in a while, done by Lilly from Lilly's Style. So I took the liberty to inform ya'll of some of my favorite products and take some pretty pictures.

1. Most worn hair product:
I like to leave my hair as au-natural as possible. It's thin and gets greasy easily. I stick to products that claim to cure my poor split ends and moisturize. I love the ease of using my Dove leave-in conditioning spray. And it smells yummy! Other than that, I'm obsessed with dry shampoo. Tresemme Fresh Start is my favorite.

2. Most worn lip product:
Burt's Bees lip balm! I apply it a bajillion times a day and I don't know what kind of condition my lips would be in without it.My second most used lip product is the Lip Scrub sugar scrub in peppermint. Mmm!

3. Most worn earrings:
I love my studs. Every time I try to branch out and buy earrings that dangle and are statement pieces, I come home with studs - multiple studs.

4. Most worn shirt:
I'd have to say that my basic dark gray sweater shirt is the most worn thing in my entire closet. I love easy pieces that match with anything. I like that there's always an option to dress it up with bright accessories.

5. Most worn nailpolish:
Oh, wow. This is a tough one! Nail polishes are my new obsession and I'm always changing it up based on whatever mood I'm in at the time. I'd have to say that my favorites are Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Plum Luck and Lavender Cloud, Sally Hansen Insta-Dry in Sonic Bloom, and Love and Beauty in Dusty Blue.

6. Most worn shoe:
I'm in love with my basic gray sneakers. I call them my knockoff Keds. I bought them at Rue 21 on sale for about $10 and I wear them with everything. They're definitely my go to shoe -- a great way to play down my outfits -- even though they basically scream that I'm going for comfort over fashion. Oops?

7. Most worn perfume:
Coach Poppy! It's the most recent perfume I gave myself as a gift. It smells like spring. That's the best way I can describe it.

8. Most worn bag:
I got a basic black bag from H&M and I've loved it to death. Well, it hasn't died yet, so yay! I use it for my purse and it's extra big, so I ocassionally find things to shove in it that I might need "in case of an emergency," such as rollerball perfumes and lotions and combs... It's a bit ridiculous. But it's also big enough to carry notebooks and my laptop from class to class during school. It's a winner.

I tag anybody who would like to do this! If you do, let me know and link me to it! I'd love to check it out.

The Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival 2011 in Indio, CA is where you can find celebs and music lovers alike, dressed wonderfully for the occasion. I'm definitely going to be looking at these fab get-ups for my spring/summer wardrobe inspiration.

Also in attendance: Camilla Belle, Vanessa Hudgens, Kate Bosworth, Whitney Port, and Alessandra Ambrosio, to name a few.

What do you think of the boho-hippie induced fashion coma these lovely ladies seem to be in? Personally, I love it.

JewelMint is my new favorite thing, like, ever. I've posted about them before, so if you haven't checked them out by now, you ought to be ashamed of yourself!

What are you waiting for? These babies are almost sold out.

"This three ring set is a classic with a twist. The little heart ring feels so vintage, like something you could have found in your grandmother's jewelry box. The ring with the twirling green wheel is especially unique. Honestly, I'm not sure where else you would be able to find a piece like this! I love that these can all be piled on and worn together or separately. Each ring is special enough to stand alone and is a perfect touch for a look. "
- Kate 

"This oversized bangle look is so on trend! Kate and I found a pair of vintage earrings that inspired us to make this ethnic inspired bangle. It's very 60's to me and the pink accents in the bracelet compliment a pink skirt like the one in this super chic Giambattista Valli outfit. Get the look with this super cute Jones and Jones skirt from asos. com. Keep it fun and vintage! " 
- Cher

"This piece is super important to me! “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” and the Parisian punk trend we’re currently seeing across magazine covers inspired us to create this earring set. It’s so Camden Market—this London locale always has crowds of goths, rockers, and punks. This piece comes with another stud to be worn in the opposite ear. Channel you inner tomboy with rolled up sleeves, or go glam in a sequin dress, like this number by Lipsy. "
