Lohmans Haul

Hey everyone! Today I have a small Lohmans haul for you. Lohmans is a store, like TJ-Max, that sells name brand clothing for half the price. I picked up three things that I want to show you guys!

1. DKNY Shirt

This shirt is awesome! I love the cinching at the bottom, and it fits me perfectly. I like that this can be a winter or summer shirt.

2. Free People Tunic

Isn't this adorable? The detailing on the tunic is fabulous. When I wear it, I feel like such a princess. Wow, I love it!

3. Black Bandeau

This was only $6, so I wanted to pick it up! I can wear this black bandeau under almost anything that I want, and since it is padded I couldn't resist.

I hope you enjoyed my small haul.

Hello loves! Today I am going to talk all about bandeaus. If you don't know what these amazing inventions are then I will teach you all about them.

Bandeaus basically serve as undershirts or camis, but are only about half the material! They cover your goodies, so that you can just throw one on when you wear a revealing shirt. They cover up everything without looking boring! The bandeaus come in so many different patterns and colors. I have two from Hollister, and they are lacy!

Here is a picture of the two I have:

Aren't they adorable? I got mine on sale for only $3!

Another advantage of bandeaus is the fact that you don't need to wear a bra with them! Since most of them are padded, you can avoid the trouble of a strapless bra. I hate wearing strapless bras because I always feel like I am gonna fall right out of them, but with bandeaus you can eliminate the bra and the cami with just one piece of fabric! Just for that simple reason the bandeaus are worth it!

Where Can I Buy Them?

There are a few places I know of that sell them, but I am sure you can find them almost anywhere! If you want cheap ones then you can go to Aeropostale. The ones they sell there are not padded, so they are harder to pull of because you need a bra under them. I think if the bandeau isn't padded then it is pointless because the whole point of them is to not wear a bra! But, at Aeropostale they are $2. The next place you can buy them is Hollister. They will probably still be selling them on sale for $3, so go get your hands on a few before they are all sold out! I love the two I have from there, and they are perfectly padded. Lastly, I know they sell really nice ones at Victorias Secret. These are a bit more expensive, but they are padded, so they are well worth it! I think they are 2 for $20.

I hope you guys enjoyed this! Please comment below and then me what you think of the new bandeau trend.

Renovating Room: Day 2

Today has been a tiring, but rewarding day! One of my best friends, Kate, came over at around 1 to help me paint my entire room. So, my sisters and I, along with Kate, began to paint my whole room. It took so long, but I think it turned out great. The color is fabulous. It is like a dark lavender. Here are a few pictures of us painting.

Then after the paint was all dry, I took all the tape of the walls. This didn't take too long, but it was just annoying! Once the tape was off, the fun stuff started :) We moved everything back into my room and rearranged the whole place. I love the way my room is setup; I have so much more room.

The only thing left to do is hang stuff on the walls. That will be done this Tuesday, so the room tour will be up on Wednesday like I promised! Talk to you all then.

Renovating Room: Day 1

Today is Sunday the 18th, and I am currently prepping my room for painting. This morning my dad and I cleared most of the stuff out of my room, or into the center of my room, so we had room to paint. Moving everything might seem like a small job, but boy it was not! I was breaking a sweat; nevertheless, we got the job done in about an hour. After we moved everything, we began to spackle the walls. Spackling is filling in any holes or imperfections in the wall! Basically just smoothing the wall.

When that was finished, we put on a base coat to prepare for painting. This didn't take too long, but putting up all the tape did! Tape is so annoying; unfortunately, it is pretty crucial :(

That is pretty much all we did today. Tomorrow my two best friends are coming over to help me paint. We are going to take lots of pictures for you! Talk to you then.

Room Update

Hey everyone!

I decided to do a small blog post about my room that I will be redecorating, so you will be able to know when my room tour will be up. I actually just bought the paint yesterday, which was very exciting. It is not the exact color I wanted, but I think it will still look nice. I am going to paint every wall this deep lilac color. I think it will look very nice!

Everyone knows that before one starts painting he or she needs to prep the room first. What I mean by prep is putting on a base, fixing any imperfections on the walls, and taping the creases. This prepping process will begin on Thursday the 15th and end Thursday the 16th.

The next step is painting. My two best friends and I are actually going to be doing ALL the painting. We think it will be really fun! How hard could it be? :) Anyway, the painting will start and end on Monday the 19th. From that point on I will need to re-organize all of my things, and put everything back in my room. I think I will need until that Friday to have everything back in order; therefore, I will probably have the room tour up the last week of July.

I hope you eager ladies and gents can wait that long :)

Toy Story 3

WOW! This movie can only be explained in one word: incredible.


If you have seen the latest Toy Story movie then you have to agree with me. It was the perfect ending to an amazing journey. I never thought I would like the third installment of this movie more than the first two, but boy was I proven wrong. Thank goodness I had Kleenex in my bag! I did not think the waterworks were going to come, but when the movie was finishing up I found myself reaching for the tissues more than once. Don't worry, I will not give anything away! I don't want to ruin the movie for all of you, but let me just say you will not be disappointed if you see this!

My favorite toy in this movie and all the movies is by far Woody! I know that Woody is the generic answer, but I have a few reasons why I love him! First of all, he is a leader. You have to admire his courage and loyalty. Yes, I am praising a fictional character, but he deserves the admiration. Woody is the perfect example of a best friend. He never lets you down.

There was a lot of adventure in this movie as well! Let me just say these toys are unstoppable. They come up with brilliant plans and execute everyone of them perfectly. It is just so impressive. Every time they escape a bad situation I am astonished. The writers must be geniuses!

Alright, that is the end of my rant about Toy Story 3. If you haven't seen it yet then please get your behinds into a movie seat ASAP, and enjoy this movie which you will NEVER forget.
