Aqua Blue Summer Look

When I do my makeup I usually stay away from any sort of color. I'm not afraid of it, I just prefer more neutral colors like tans, browns, and especially bronzes (hello Urban Decay YDK!) But recently when playing around with my makeup trying to brighten up my look for the warmer months I tried out this Aqua Blue look, and MUCH TO MY SURPRISE I got tons of compliments from my customers at work. I was very pleased but went back to my neutrals, well about 2 weeks later I wore the same look and AGAIN I got tons of compliments! Anyways, the moral of this story is colored eye shadows get noticed much more then the neutrals, and they definitely get more compliments (and I like those ;) After I came to this realization I decided to go ahead and do a tutorial over this look, not only is it great for the summer but it is insanely easy to create! Below is the list of products I used to create this look and the tutorial itself!

Deals and Steals

“If you can, you will quickly find that the greatest rate of return you will earn is on your own personal spending. Being a smart shopper is the first step to getting rich.”

- Mark Cuban

I'm am forever on a hunt for deals and steals... Sometimes I find them, other times they find me. For me it's not the product I buy but how much I saved buying it. Haha, I'm not sure if that is good or bad. It's a good thing as long as you 1. Never sacrifice quality for price and 2. Never buy just because it is on sale (which I'am guilty of quite often). BUT as long as you can stick to those 2 rules then shop away! I'm a firm believer in shopping freely as long as you search for the best price, make sure their isn't a coupon offered or some sort of discount. I do this so much so that I consider myself an expert and even wrote a speech and put together a power point presentation for my B&P communications class (that's Business & Professional for those who don't know.) Now that is hardcore! LOL :)
So today I will impart some of my shopping wisdom on you...

Designer brands at a fraction of the cost:
The 4 sites listed above are all exclusive members only sites that offer designer and luxury brands at up to %80 percent off the cost. I'm talking Juicy purses for way less then 100 bucks and those BCBG heels you been dying for wayyyy cheap! You do have to sign up for these sites to be able to shop but let me tell you, it'll be the best 60 seconds you ever spent!

Discount Codes:
If i'm shopping on line then it is not without a discount code! There are tons of places to find these little gems and we all know shopping online you need to save money to compensate for shipping costs... UNLESS you find a code for free shipping!
Some of my favorite sites to find discount codes are:
These sites make it so easy to save money, just go to the site and search whatever website you are shopping at. The site will then tell you all the codes out there and their "success rate" which means if the code worked or not when people tried to use it. One time while shopping on I got a hoodie and a perfume set for like $13.00 including shipping all because of 2 codes I found on!!!
Another website I love to check out is I'am a subscriber to the magazine People Style Watch and in there is a tear out page that has select websites that offer discounts (usually 20%) to People Style Watch readers. BUT you don't have to be a subscriber to take advantage of these discount! If you go onto and click the link that says "SHOPPING", scroll down and find the link that says "EXCLUSIVE DEALS."
There you will find about 15 to 20 different stores that are offering discounts to YOU!

Another AMAZING thing I just discovered is on one of my favorite places to shop's website...
I know that you all LOVE Forever 21!
Recently while browsing their website I discovered (at the bottom of the page BARELY noticeable) a link that said "Daily 21 Specials" this link will take you to a page that has 21 items at 20% off! The fun thing about this is that these items change daily!
So it's something new everyday!
Check out to check out these specials!

Well it's about 5 am and I'am OFFICIALLY exhausted! I hope this post will help you to save money! If you know of any other great sites that I don't have listed please let me know!

Happy shopping! xoxo Daniela

Happy Mother's Day

Me, Steven James (in my lap), My Momma, Emily (in Mom's lap) Jennifer and Destiny
This is me and my mom 2 sisters niece and nephew...
We went out to eat to celebrate mother's day. This blog is just a little shout out to Mommas! My mom and my sister are 2 of the best moms I know and they taught me how to be an amazing mother as well (one day). Those ladies are 2 of the strongest and smartest women I know, and a lot of the reason I' am who I 'am today. Mother's singlehandedly shape and mold the people of the world and without them NONE of us would be here today.

Kristen Stewart June Elle Cover Girl!

It's no secret that I love love love Kristen Stewart! So when I seen on basically ALL the gossip sites/blogs etc. that she was on the cover of the June issue of Elle I was excited. The photos are amazing, and this one was one of my favorites! Sitting in a room that has your face plastered all over it?!?! Loves it!

The Met's Costume Institute Gala: My Favorite Look!

So after browsing through picture after picture on website after website, it was finally who had pictures close up enough and high quality enough that I could actually pick a favorite look out of ALL of them! Now I don't know if it's the warm weather and the yearning for summer and swimsuits, or if this look was really just something that was so fun and suited her so well... BUT, the winner is... *drum roll please*.........
Blake Lively!
Her makeup here is so fun! She looks so bronzey and healthy, her cheeks are glowing! She couldn't have picked a more perfect blush (or atleast her makeup artist couldn't have! KUDOS to him or her!!!) The coral pink lipstick gives her the beachy vibe and that golden shimmer underneath the eyes is absolutely stunning!
