11 Random Facts About Kendall:
1. My favorite magazine is Seventeen.  Every issue is so fun to read, and I look forward to receiving it in the mail.  I learn something new in every edition!
2. This summer I volunteered at the library with my friend, and later I will be helping out at an elementary school.
3. I prefer shorts over jeans.  Jeans go with just about anything, but they can get too hot!  Shorts on the other hand are stylish, comfortable, and don't make my legs catch on fire.
4. My favorite actress/famous person is Shay Mitchell!  I love watching her on Pretty Little Liars, and absolutely adore her style as well.
5. One of my all-time favorite book series is "The Summer Series" by Jenny Han.  Her series is made up of three wonderful books including: "The Summer I Turned Pretty", "It's Not Summer Without You", and "We'll Always Have Summer."  I am obsessed with these books!
6. My favorite summer treat is ice cream!  It tastes so delicious- especially on a hot day.  I like pretty much any flavor.  :)
7. Right now my nails are painted cute little pastel-colored cupcakes.  I followed missglamorazzi's tutorial on how to make this simple and cute design. 
8. This morning I ate bread with Nutella spread on top.  I have been loving Nutella- so yummy!  I can't believe that it's considered healthy because it tastes so good!
9. Today I am wearing PINK Fresh & Clean Body Mist by Victoria's Secret.  This scent is so light and it smells great.  I wear it so often!
10. I can't wait until the iPhone 5 comes out!  Hopefully I will get it for my birthday or for Christmas.  If not, I'll just have to buy it myself. 
11. I love playing cards.  During summer school my friends and I would sit down between classes and play a bunch of card games.  My favorite is Egyptian War.  :)

1. A few of my favorite Youtubers are Macbarbie07, missglamorazzi, freshblush, and bubzbeauty. All of their videos are so informative and fun to watch!
2. I love red velvet cupcakes! (Especially with cream cheese frosting!) Even though they're just chocolate with red food coloring, I think is tastes better than plain chocolate. 
3. My favorite summer colors are mint, coral, and turquoise! They're all so pretty and make me happy.
4. Some of my favorite nail polishes are China Glaze "For Audrey," "Ruby Pumps," Essie's "Bikini So Teeny," and O.P.I's "Lunch at the Delhi."

7. I am a teen model as well as a beauty queen. I started modeling in sixth grade and I won my first pageant in seventh. Throughout the experience, I have gained so much confidence and have met so many amazing friends. I've also learned a lot about beauty and fashion along the way!
8. Some of my favorite scents are "Be Enchanted" and "Warm Vanilla Sugar" from Bath and Body Works, and "Vanilla Lace" and "Ravishing Love" from Victoria's Secret's Garden Collection.

Laine Blogger Award

We have recently been nominated for the Laine Blogger Award!  

Thank you so much to Jackie from The Fashion It List for nominating us.  She let us pick which award we wanted to receive out of three, and we decided on this one.  This is our first award, so we are extremely grateful and excited to be nominated.

Now, onto the award! 


1. Tag the blogger who awarded you.
2. Award five more bloggers.
3. Answer a few questions (below).

Questions & Answers:

1. What is your current beauty obsession? 
K- I love Essie nail polish!  All of their colors are so cute and the results are great.  Durable too!  Essie has to be my favorite brand of nail polish.
T- Right now, I really like tinted lip balms! (Especially Maybelline Baby Lips!) They're moisturizing, but still add some fun color.

2. What is one beauty item that you wished you owned?
K- I really want to try out the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette.  So many bloggers and Youtubers have been talking about it!
T- Haha, there's too many! I would really like the Urban Decay Naked or Naked 2 Palette. I am also interested in the Too Faced Natural Eye Palette.

3.  What kind of posts are your favorite to read and write? 
K- This is a hard question because I like so many!  However, I especially like tutorials and DIY posts.  They're so fun to read and try out.  :)
T- All of them! :) If I had to choose, I would probably say reviews. They're so helpful!

4. What inspired you to become a blogger?
K- A mixture of reasons, but especially Youtube.  I love watching fashion and beauty videos from multiple channels on my free time.  Another reason was Tiana- we are interested in pretty much all the same stuff!  Since I like fashion and shopping I wanted to share my style with others.  In fewer words, I just got more interested in girly things.  :P
T- Basically, the fashion and beauty industry inspired me to become one! Along with other bloggers and youtubers. I've always loved reading magazines, blogs, and watching youtube videos, so I thought, why don't I start my own with a friend who's as into this stuff as I am!

5. What color nail polish are you wearing right now? 
K- I'm currently wearing my favorite color, coral!  I just painted my nails a pretty coral pink and finished the look off with a glittery top coat.  Both are Essie products.
T- I'm currently rocking the ombre nail look. I used a light peach and a bright coral.

It was hard to choose just five, but we finally decided on some of our favorite blogs and bloggers.  The following have been extra nice to us, and we adore their blogs as well.  
Thank you!

Maybelline Baby Lips - Pink Punch

Review & Swatch

Recently we went shopping for a new lip balm, and we wanted to share our opinion and review of our buy. We looked over multiple brands but we finally settled on one with high reviews. Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm. This product has been talked about all over blogs and Youtube channels, and so we decided to try it. 

There are a total of six different shades; Quenched (clear), Peppermint (clear), Pink Punch, Cherry Me, Grapevine, and Peach Kiss. We decided to get it in the shade Pink Punch, because it’s pink, of course!  

First of all, the packaging, it’s so cute! The lip balm itself is very moisturizing, has an SPF of 20, and feels nice on the lips. The color is a cute baby pink. As you can see in the swatch below, the pigmentation is pretty good, considering this is a tinted lip balm.

Here is a swatch:

Such a pretty color!  :)

The only con that we came across is the lip balm isn't that durable.  We had to keep reapplying throughout the day (but you have to do that with any product).  It's only been a few days, so we haven't come across any major problems yet.

All in all, we really love this product and think it's a great buy.  It's only 2-4 dollars (depending on where you buy it from), so you can't go wrong.  The packaging is cute, the color is pretty, and the lip balm does its job!

Final Rating: ♥ ♥ ♥ 


Have any of you tried Maybelline Baby Lips?  If you have, leave a comment below telling us what you thought of the product!

The Study of Fashion

A cute & chic outfit inspired by Hanna Marin makes for a trendy look for a night out, or even a mature job interview. Hanna never "dresses down" not even for school. She always stays on trend and stylish. Here is how to achieve that look.

Start with a frilly turquoise dress. (Isn't this one so cool?) Add a black blazer to give maturity, and slip on some gold heels for a chic look. Finally, give yourself a pretty pink pout, grab a nude purse, and a gold cut-out ring to add a finishing touch of "Hanna."

Now you're looking cute, chic, and trendy just like Hanna Marin

Cropped t shirt

Rare London floral print shorts
$23 - rarelondon.com

Vans lace up shoes

Zip bag

River Island tear drop earrings
$9.31 - riverisland.com

Lip treatment
$12 - nelly.com

Most people would agree- school can get a little boring with the same old jeans and t-shirt. You want something new, fresh, and pretty. Try this!
A light green flowy top is okay, but add a cute design and you look even better. Match the top with a ruffly floral skirt with a similar color scheme. Belts aren't only for big pants- they're an adorable accessory! Pick a color from your outfit (let's say light pink) and brighten your face with a pair of feather earrings. Lastly, put on your favorite shoes, grab your bag, and now you're ready for school!
OPTIONAL: If skirts just aren't your thing, switch it out for jeans or denim shorts. :)

A unique but cute outfit inspired by Aria Montgomery makes for a bold look perfect for a night out. Aria tends to take girly pieces and give them some edge, so that's what I did here!

Now you're looking super cute, trendy, but edgy just like Aria Montgomery.

The sun is going down and the moon and stars are coming out to party. You need something a little dressier, but not by much. Bring the heat with this casual mint polka dot dress, and finish off the look with matching bow flats.

And that's what I call beach house party.
