Remember when I said I would try to post everyday during Spring Break.... obviously I lied because I haven't!  ~classic Caroline move~  
but I do have a new post for you now!  This is what I wore on this unbelievably lovely day.  I spent the morning picking up flowers for a party on Saturday and eating breakfast at the cutest little café with my mom.  Also, I picked up a copy of Les Miserable at Target... "#obsessed"

If you'e been a reader of my blog for a while you know that I love everything patriotic.  I think my favorite color combination is red white and blue, but for spring I thought it would be an appropriate time to play with that combo.  Staying in the same color families I replaced red with coral, blue with periwinkle and white with.... well, white.  Yes, I wasn't wearing anything periwinkle, but for the photos I love love love the combination.  

 Till next time, y'all


spring break, baby

 Spring break is finally here and I'm in Los Freaking Angeles!  You guys don't even understand how stoked I am to be here!  Today was my first official day here and it was absolutely beautiful!  I'm going to try to blog everyday this season.  Or at least have a post ready to go up everyday this season!  (We'll see if I can keep that promise....)  To start it off, I thought I would share with you what I wore today on my adventures with my best friend from home, Monica.  We had breakfast with a friend in the sun then ran som errands then went to Melrose to get Urth Caffé.  Organic Green Tea Blended Boba is my favorite!!  Anyways, the weather was perfect today and just everything was perfect today.  I love spring and I'm going to share my love with y'all!



for the wanderlusters

So if you're like me, traveling and beautiful places are always on my mind.  I want to see everywhere lovely and beautiful and different from the place I'm at the moment.  Right now, of course, I'm craving Spain and LA but since I spend a lot of my time when I'm at home online looking at blogs and getting inspiration, I've been seeing an over excessive amount of beautiful places... sooooo in honor of my current obsession I created a Tumblr page dedicated just to pretty places hence the title "Pretty Places" 

Check it out, you wont be sorry! :) xx



spring break inspiration

Spring break starts on Wednesday at 10 AM for me when I'm on that teeny tiny little plane on my way to the glory land:  Los Angeles... the city of angels.... home!!!  All I've got on my mind is sunshine and flowers and the city and magic.  I cannot wait.

2013 spring face

spring face

spring face by legitfashion featuring nars cosmetics

I've been wanting to do some posts about my favorite beauty products for a while now so I thought... "hey its finals week I should distract myself and actually do it!!"  At least I'm being productive... right?
Anyways, above is a selection of my favorite makeup products.  Because I'm at school right now, I don't wear as much makeup as I usually do at home.  {I'm way too tired and don't really care to put on a full face just for going to the studio.}  On the rare, but starting to become more regular, days that I actually do my makeup these are the products I'm loving for Spring right now.
My inspirations have been drawn from the very fresh faces that were recently on the runway during fashion week.  I found that a very basic face is the way to go while playing up one select feature, particularly lips and lashes.

Here's my basic makeup routine plus review:

NARS True Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in St. Mortiz - I love this.  Its so light and fresh and leaves my face a little dewy which is really big right now.  Also, moisturizer is a must.
Bare Essentials Matte Powder in Medium Beige - This has been my favorite for years now.  So light and gives a matte effect which is a great mix with my tinted moisturizer.  The color is great for my skin tone as well.  AND SPF!!
Bare Essentials Mineral Veil Powder - This is a must have.  Sets my make up really well and blends out anything I might not have caught when applying moisturizer and the matte powder.
NYX Blush Stick in Orchard - Perfection.  This is such a great and fresh looking color.  Blend a little into the apples of your checks and up your check bones to get a really light, happy effect!
Bare Essentials Powder Shadows in Antique Pearl and True Gold - Antique Pearl is now discontinued but its my go-to all over eye color (above is shown a similar color, Queen Phyllis).  Sometimes I simply apply to my lid or just under my brow.  As for True Gold, I like to do my crease when I'm feeling extra fancy or for on a normal day when I don't want to wear eyeliner I mix it with a little water and apply to the underneath lash line of my eye.  Its really magical.
Stila All Day Stay Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Periwinkle - Light purple liner has been showing up everywhere lately and I got this for Christmas in a Stila eyeliner set from my mom, so I decided to try it out and found out that I absolutely love it.  Normally I'll just apply it to the bottom waterline.  It's really a great way to add a little pazazz to your eyes without doing anything over the top!  Purple is also just really in right now anyways so its like... perfection!
Benefit They're Real Mascara - I love this mascara.  I tend to switch up my mascara everyday (I have a lot!) but this one is definitely my favorite.  You have to try it to understand what I mean, but I promise you that you'll love it... and if you don't... I don't know, you might have gotten a bad bottle because its sooo good!
Katy Perry Oh Honey fake lashes - I recently wore these for a party I went to the other weekend and I love them! I am a huge fan of fake lashes... I sometimes wish I was one of those girls who wore them everyday but sadly I'm not.  I love the effect of fake lashes, especially worn with really simple makeup elsewhere on the face.  Its magic.
Lancôme Le Rouge Absolu Lipstick in Créme de Marron - I'm pretty sure this was a limited edition or gift set color, but I love it.  Its almost the color of my own lips but a little more nude so its the perfect "nude" shade for me right now.  I am currently obsessed with either really poppy red lips or nude lips, so this one is my nude choice at the moment.  (Above is a similar color, L'absolu Rouge.)
Butter London Nail Laquer - Any color by Butter will be fab but this one I'm crazy over.  For some reason I cannot find the name but its a really pretty nude/beige color with a little shimmer.  I feel like my choice of nail laquer will change a lot as the season progresses, but for early spring this is my #1 choice!

I highly recommend all of these products!  If you currently use or start to use these products let me know what you think of them in the comments below!

Stay glam xo,
