My Favorite Fruity Waters

Hi guys! 
How have you been enjoying the #StylishSummer Challenge? I've been loving your posts on social media, and all of the positive feedback I've been getting! Today's challenge is to drink (and make) some fruit infused water, so I thought I'd share two of my favorite ones with you! Also, if you didn't already see it, your week 1 schedule is already up here!



Pineapple + Strawberry
When I make my fruit infused water, I like it to be flavorful! Some fruits are way better to use than others, and pineapple is my all time favorite! If you let it sit for a while, it seriously tastes like juice even though it's mostly water! I love this combo because strawberry lemonade is one of my favorite drinks and this is just a little spin on it! You're still getting the acidity from the pineapple, but it's more tropical and delicious!



Green Tea + Strawberry

I know... another strawberry one... But I love strawberries especially in this combo because it works amazingly well with tea! I use just a basic, unsweetened green tea because the fruit you use will sweeten it up for you, and I don't let the tea brew too long so it doesn't get bitter and gross. I love this because it looks really cool and interesting and it also gives you a teensy caffeine boost!

Don't forget to go make yourself some fruit infused water and share them using the hashtag #StylishSummer! I'll be retweeting and reposting them throughout the day! Also, let me know what your favorite recipes are in the comments below because I'm obsessed with fruity waters and I'd love some new ideas!

Star Jumps!

Hey guys!
It's the first day of the #StylishSummer challenge, and since it's a monday, you're getting the first Workout Move of the Week! This one is awesome because it's part cardio, and part strengthening! It's especially great for your feet and ankles and is something that I used to use a lot when I was tumbling and cheerleading. 




Some things to remember:
  • Push yourself, but don't go overboard because after you reach your threshold, you're going be more prone to injury (start with 3 sets of 5 jumps on each side and work up)
  • Go barefoot or wear really lightweight shoes because you need foot mobility for this!
  • Try to do these 5 days out of the week for best results!
Let me know how you're enjoying these star jumps by using #StylishSummer on twitter and facebook! Also, don't forget to check out your weekly schedule by clicking here!

I included a bit of everything this week from fitness to food, beauty and more! Don't forget to tag me in your posts (Twitter: @a_modern_girl, FB: Modern Beauty Girl, Insta @miss_sienna) and hashtag your posts #stylishsummer so everyone can see them!



Monday: Make A List
I want you guys to list out EVERYTHING you want to accomplish with this challenge! Whether that's trying to lose weight, get healthier, or learn new beauty tricks! 

Tuesday: Go For a Walk

The weather is nice, not too cold and not to warm, and it's perfect for a walk! Take one early in the morning and watch the sun rise, or go late at night and wander under the stars!

Wednesday: Make Fruit Infused Water
It's a perfect natural substitute for high sugar juices and sodas and, best of all, you can customize it! Come back to Modern Beauty Girl for a few of my favorite recipes, and make sure to drink half your body weight (in ounces) of water every day! 



Thursday: Break Out Those Sandals!
It is time to start breaking out your strappy shoes and show more skin! Bring out your most fun pair of sandals and show them off at school, work, or a night on the town!


Friday: Get A Friend to Join You!

Saturday/Sunday: Go Makeup Free
Makeup is wonderful, but it's not that great for your skin if you wear it everyday. Go makeup free for a little bit over the weekend (you'll still look amazing, I promise!) and let your skin breathe a little bit! It'll thank you!

Who's excited for week 1? I am! Let's keep each other updated on our progress through these challenges! I know we can do it!

Evian, Bobbi Brown, and ELF Haul!

Hey guys!
I recently bought/got some things that I thought I would share with you! This is yet another mini haul, but I hope that you enjoy it!



I am one of the few people that like ELF eyelashes. I use my own Duo Glue, but I like these eyelashes because they're cheap, flexible, and I can cut them in half to use on my outer corner. I got the Dramatic ones for Prom (although I love the Natural ones too) and I used half a strip on the outer portion of my eye!



I also got a ELF Moisturizing Lipstick in Ravishing Rose for Prom! This lipstick is a nice deep pink color that lasts quite a while! I love the feeling of it and it stained ever so slightly, so I didn't have to reapply so much! 



I won Hope's giveaway and I was sent this eyeliner kit from Bobbi Brown! It's super amazing and I've been using the brown one every day! I'm not a huge fan of the brush for everyday, but I think it'll be amazing for a smokey eye! 



Evian sent me a bottle of their facial spray to review for you guys! I'm actually going to do a video on how to incorporate this into an everyday skincare routine, so get excited for that! But really, I've been using this a lot lately, and I LOVE it!

So, I hope you enjoyed this mini haul! Don't forget to sign up for the Stylish Summer Challenge! It's free, and allows you to be entered to win some great prizes! Also, let me know what ELF products you love because I definitely want to try more from the brand!

Makeup Forever Smokey Extravagant Mascara Review

Hi guys!
So, I have a huge collection of mascara samples (I think there's around 10 different types right now...) and I thought that I'd start going through them and reviewing them for you! Today's mascara is Smokey Extravagant by Makeup Forever!



First off, this brush is HUGE! It is ginormous, so if you have smaller eyes like I do or if you're not super coordinated, you might want to skip this because you will get mascara everywhere. The formula is also initially very wet, so if you do end up getting it on your lid, it will stick and smudge and ruin any makeup that you have. With that said, this mascara is great at length and separation. It gives a nice, feminine, feathery look to my lashes, but I do want to warn you that because it has such a wet formula and a tapered end, a lot of product will accumulate at the tip and needs to be wiped off before application. 


With one coat, it'll give you a nice defined look, but the best part about this mascara is its layering capabilities. If you let it set slightly before going over it, you'll get a voluminous look. This mascara is made to make your lashes stand out, and it definitely doesn't disappoint! It comes in two sizes, a smaller travel size ($12), and a larger full sized version ($24). While this is pricey compared to drugstore mascaras, it's on par with other high end ones and I haven't found anything comparable in the drugstore myself. 

I hope you enjoyed this review, and there's going to be a lot more coming soon! Let me know if you've tried out this mascara and your thoughts on it in the comments! Also, follow me on bloglovin to stay up to date on my new posts!

Prom Hairstyles

Hi guys!
My prom is Saturday, so me and my mom decided to go through some different hairstyles to see what would look best with my dress! I tried my hair straight and curly, and I thought that I'd share some pictures with you. 



First, we tried my hair straight. I have naturally wavy hair, so we kind of wanted to try the extremes (really straight, or really curly) because I wanted to do something different. We liked it with my hair straight, but I thought that it needed more volume. Also, I think this might be the first time you see me in my dress, so yay!


Next, I tried to curl my hair. We did it with a 1.5 inch curling iron and I'm obsessed with how this turned out! I'm pretty sure that this is how I'm going to do my hair for prom because I love the volume that it gives! 

Also, I'm pretty sure that the makeup that I'm wearing in these pictures is what I'm gonna do for prom (but with falsies and more eyeliner!)

Let me know in the comments which hairstyle you like better, and don't forget to follow me on Instagram because I'll post a bunch of prom pics there!

Easter Outfit!

Hi guys!
Happy Belated Easter! I thought I'd just share a small outfit of the day post because I really liked the dress that I wore to church yesterday and I don't think I've shared it with you yet!




So I'm kinda obsessed with this dress because it's super tasteful and modest with a normal neckline and capsleeves, but it has a gold thread woven into the pink fabric, so it's super shimmery and metallic! 


On Me!

Dress and Belt - Charlotte Russe
Bag - Aero
Shoes (they're white wedges) - Payless

On Madi!

Dress - Old Navy

I hope you guys all had an amazing Easter weekend! Let me know how you celebrated it in the comments below (I had an easter egg hunt and a huge lunch)! Also, don't forget to sign up for the Stylish Summer Challenge because it's less than 2 weeks away!
