Chambray Outfit of the Day

Hey guys!
So I've been super into denim shirts for the longest time! I actually did a more "summery" outfit of the day with this shirt a little while ago, which you can see here! 



Top: my top is a typical chambray/denim type shirt. It has denim buttoning on the front going half way down and the sleeves are cuffed just below the elbows. Mines is from old navy, and while I wasn't able to find this exact shirt, this one is quite close!

Jeans: when mixing denim on denim, I like to go for different washes. Since I did a typical blue wash for the top, I went for dark, black wash jean jeggings. Mines are also from Old Navy (I do lots of my shopping there!) and you can purchase similar ones here! 


Earrings: You really can't tell that I'm wearing earrings in the photos, but I'm wearing long pink earrings that I've gotten from jewelmint! 

Sunglasses: I got these brown aviators from Nordstrom! I was able to locate the exact ones online and you can buy them here!

So that was my denim on denim outfit of the day! I love denim on denim for fall and winter because it's casual and chic, but super comfortable at the same time! Let me know how you like to do denim on denim in the comments and follow my blogs on bloglovin when you get a chance!

...and I'm in to Boobs and Loubs  It's a blog by Morgan Fitzpatrick of Rich Kids of Beverly Hills (a reality show on E!) and it's witty and funny and I've enjoyed reading it a lot! I'm over physics!

Pop Of Green Makeup of the Day

Hey guys!
So as most of you know, I got the Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Freak for my birthday, and I've been experimenting with different ways to use it! This is one of those looks that I tried and fell in love with! You can't really see the green too well in the pictures, but I hope you get the idea!



Face: I used my Jouer Mattifying Bronzer on the perimeter of my face to contour slightly and make me look a little more tan! Then I took my Laura Geller Balance and Brighten powder foundation to even out my skin tone and mattify it. I also filled in my brows with MAC Espresso. Also, on a side note, sorry about my brows! I swear the right one is 10x larger than the left one in this picture!



Eyes: I've been in love with the One Direction makeup that Markwins sent me, so that's what I used for this! I used a brown jumbo pencil as a primer all over the eyelid, blended out with my finger. Then I took a taupe shade and patted it all over the lid. I took a matte cream shade and applied it under my brows as a highlight and took a deep brown powder shadow and used it as liner on the outer half of my upper and lower lashlines! For the pop of color, I used Freak eye pencil around the inner corner! It looked a little too dark, so for a bit of brightness I topped it with a shimmery white shade! It's not too noticeable in the photos, but it really pops in person! Then I finished up with a coat of mascara!

Lips: My lips have been hell lately, so I just used a clear lip balm!

That's my makeup of the day! Let me know how you like to use fun eyeliners in unconventional ways because I want to know how I can use Freak differently! Also, enter my giveaway! Widget at the end of this post!

...and I'm in to Rich Kids of Beverly Hills. It's totally my guilty pleasure show of the moment and I'm obsessed! I'm over HTML. I was trying to get into learning all about it so I could make my blog look really cool, but I'm kind of like "screw it! My blog's fine!" right now.

So you wanna blog on an iPad?

Hello guys!
So this post is going to be on blogging on an iPad or any mobile device for that matter. As most of you know, I got a iPad mini for my birthday and it's been where I've been blogging from the most recently. This is just what works for me, and you can tweak it for your needs and wants!

I like the blogger app. It's very basic, but it is good for getting words and pictures out in the order I want. Usually I email myself pictures and save them to my camera roll on my iPad, if I need pictures for the post I'm writing, because the app makes it super easy to insert them. 

The downside of the app is that you can only do very basic things. You can bold and italicize, but if you need to change the size, color or font, you need to go outside the app. Also, the app places pictures on "original size" and in its own row, so you may need to change that based on your preferences. Also, if you want to link text, you'll need to go out of the app.

So I go to my browser (I use safari, but you can use whatever you'd like) and go to blogger. I use this to change the font if I need to, link text, and fix the layout of pictures. You could do it all on the we page, but it's harder to add in pictures and it's less streamlined.

Now that you're done writing a post, how about Adsense or Analytics? Currently there are iPhone apps for both of these things, but not iPad apps so I would go to the webpage if you want to look at that. Also, the app doesn't show statistics, so once again, go to the webpage for that!

Honestly, blogging on the iPad is a lot more difficult that desktop blogging, but it can be more convenient if you're on the go and it is possible! Also, you can 100% use these things on a iPhone, but I wouldn't recommend it because the layout is just a lot smaller and it makes it a lot harder. 

If you blog using your iPad and you have tips that I haven't mentioned, leave it in the comments because I'm interested to see how others blog on iPads!

...and as usual my in to is my iPad mini! It's seriously my baby and I've been on it a lot more than I'd like to admit! And my over is coffee! I've been more into iced teas lately. Especially the peach green tea lemonade and the blackberry mojito tea lemonade from Starbucks! Or milk tea!
