Studs & Stripes

Prabal Gurung green tank / Balmain skinny leg jeans / Ash wedge / Tory Burch tote bag / Ugo Cacciatori sterling silver ring / Snapbacks hat

How many trends can I fit into one outfit, you might ask. How about wedge sneakers, black and white, printed jeans, zippered legs, mint green, animal jewelry, & studs (studded caps at that)? Yes. Yes I did. Also, notice the top is from the Prabal Gurung x Target line! I haven't been to see the line actually but I've been stalking it online, and I love this top! I might just have to make way over to Target tomorrow.

Happy 100!

This is post #100! It's been a bumpy beginning but I couldn't be happier with this blog, its growing success, and the changes coming my way. You are in for a big surprise after this weekend!! But without further adieu...

If you believe this, you can do anything you set your mind to.

If I had this skateboard, I'd start riding again.

I saw this right after Nemo hit. I lol'd.

My life is summed up in this graffiti..

Fashion Backgrounds, Tumblr Themes, Premade Tumblr Themes
I love this print & want it in my bedroom!

Isn't this burlesque costume amazing?

Is this not the cutest print? I want it.

And Because I Can't Stop Online (Window) Shopping:

A healthy family | Happiness for my loved ones | Good doctors | Understanding friends | 100 posts! | Big changes coming soon! | LLB's growing success | (and maybe, also, hospital food..)

Top It Off

fedora: Wet Seal
scarf: from another coat
leather bomber: Kohl's (similar)
flannel: Forever 21 (similar)
shirt: Jeans by Buffalo - via JC Penney
leggings: TJ Maxx
boots: Pink Basis

Don't let the sunshine fool you. It was freezing out! So naturally, I went shopping. My best friend had some money to spend in Wet Seal, so we headed to the mall, and low and behold, we found these fedoras. For just $10, mind you! I decided on this snazzy one, which is actually my first real hat! She got a cute one with a lace band. We were both so pleased with ourselves, that we decided to wear them together through the rest of our shopping trip. Odd stares and all.

Video: Christmas Sales Haul


This is my second video on my youtube channel! I'm really, so proud of it and hope you all like watching the videos. I really enjoy hauls from other people and I think it's so much easier (and fun) to do these than take pictures of everything. So here it is!

Beauty Wishlist

I don't know about you, but the winter does a serious number on my skin. Especially when it's 50 degrees (F) one day and below freezing the next! (No wonder I have a ridiculously bad cold..) My hands, body and face have been getting so dry lately so I'm on the hunt for some amazing, moisturizing beauty products. The cool thing about the ones I've been coveting is, 2 out of 3 of them, give back!

Lush Charity Pot

The Charity Pot from Lush contains cocoa butter and almond oil, both of which are extremely moisturizing. The extra bonus is that all the money, except tax, goes to grassroots charities all over the world. 

Philosophy To Believe

Philosophy's WhyHunger To Believe Charity gel is triple duty, being a shampoo shower gel, and a bubble bath. I'm pretty particular about my hair products but as a shower gel and bubble bath, I'm down! It is cranberry and currant-scented and all profits go to the WhyHunger charity, to help end world hunger.

Lollia Shea Butter Hand Creme

This Lollia hand creme, in Breathe, is made of shea butter, macadamia nut oil, and Brazil nut oils, and is also infused with peony & white lily scents. The lotion is hydrating and sweet-floral scented, what more can you ask for in a hand lotion?

Tunes for Tuesday

This is a special day here on LLB! This probably won't be a regular feature but I needed to share this with anyone and everyone.

This is my best friend's newest original song and she is freakin' stellar. I can't even begin to say how talented she is. She deserves the world! Make sure to check out her youtube channel, also. Her voice is beyond.

And this little video is by my friend, Warren. He is the coolest, nerdiest, most selfless dude ever and deserves all the attention he's been getting and then some! If you like nerdy things, and especially superheroes, you need to watch this. And go listen to more on youtube!

This is no way sponsored, by any means. I just want my friends to know how amazed I am, by them. Love you guys!

Inspiration: Animalistic

Maybe its my constant search for the perfect leopard print shoe, but I'm feelin' the animalistic vibe lately.

Tell Me About It, Stud

flannel: Forever 21 (similar)
shorts: Forever 21 (love the blue ones too!)
tights: Target
shoes: Candies via Kohls (similar - in leather)
necklace: blown glass from Italy!
lips: Mirabella : Caught Red-Handed

Valentine's Day has brought out the sex kitten, pin-up girl in me. I've always loved the pin-up style so I put my own little spin on it with these high-waisted, studded shorts, that I'm literally in love with. I stuck with typical V-day colors, and also added my little heart necklace that some lovely friends brought me when they took a trip to Italy. An amazing present from an amazing part of the world. (I've never even been out of the country!) This was one of my favorite looks to date and now I might just have to find a reason to go out on Valentine's Day. Cause honestly, I felt shamelessly hot.

Things I Love Thrusday

Get a coffee, people. This one's a doozy. (And apparently I have a thing for black & white photography this week..)

How freakin glam-azing is this?

I would wear this shirt constantly.

This is true.

This is controversial. And I love it.

I love this quote.

If this doesn't make you happy, I don't know what will.

I'm in love with this artist, Jessica Durrant.

I love this more than words.

This Valentine's Day card is so cute (and sexy).

How unbelievably gorgeous is this photo?!

Henry and I both want this for our living room!

Ever thought about this? Too funny.

I'm doing this to Todd on V-day. There's no questioning it.


Because I Just Discovered (& Fell In Love With) Unique Vintage:

Because I Can't Stop Online Window Shopping:

Amazing opportunities headed my way. Revamps! Lovely, wonderful, fantastic friends. Being in contact with amazingly talented people. Chilled out weekends. Hilarious super bowl commercials. Making dinner for my family. Natural mac & cheese. Todd being an actual person. Gift cards & new things from Old Navy. Starting my Youtube channel! A squeaky clean doggy. Loving love.

hey Spike what do you like?

sweatshirt: Forever 21
jeans: gift from a friend
scarf: thrifted
boots: Pink Basis
bag: Nine West (similar -in beige)
rings: H&M
bracelets: Greece & diy

First of all, let's acknowledge that I have a top knot. It will probably never happen again, so eat it up now! My hair just wasn't cooperating. Second, this sweatshirt is bad ass, yes? I found it just in the knick of time at F21 because now they have ones almost identical in store, but without the leather bits on the shoulders. Boo! It's online though, don't worry. I adore this though and I'll definitely get a lot of wear out of it. That is if the spikes will stay on this time! (One wash, and two of them had to be reattached..)

I obviously piled on the jewelry, with two of my favorite bracelets, and paired everything with this bright green Nine West bag that my grandma bought me. The woman has taste! It's appropriate for any season but  it made me feel more spring-y, even if there's snow..everywhere.

I also just want to say thanks to everyone who commented yesterday's post. The youtube channel has been a long time coming and I'm so happy its being received well. Seriously, thank you.

Inspiration: Something Sexy

With V-Day just around the corner, I've been inspired by sexy little things. I think every woman, at some point in their life, should let their inner goddess out and sex it up a little. Not for your significant other, but for you.

I know I'm not the only one who sometimes puts on makeup and struts around in my sexiest number, even if I'm alone and have no plans. Be it a little red dress or skimpy lingerie, getting all made up, even for no reason, boosts your confidence. Especially if you're havin bad day! So this year, use Valentine's Day as an excuse and go all out. I promise you won't regret it.

Ken's the perfect date.

Thigh highs and a big ol' cocktail ring? You can't go wrong.

Wrap yourself up ;) For someone special or just for fun!

Go out for a romantic dinner in a smokin' red dress.

Feed someone else or be fed. Either way, sweets should be involved!

Body language is everything. Even if it's just you.. in the mirror.

Clean in your favorite lingerie.
