Guest Post: Valentines Day Outfit by Endless Bliss

Hi everyone! I'm Tiffany and I blog over at Endless Bliss, a blog that centers around my journey from college life to corporate life. I like to blog about staying positive, being in love, and my love for the following things: books,&traveling, the 90's, Zac Efron, and life in general. I am not a fashion blogger by any means, but when Amy asked me to guest post for her, I thought I would share a little something from my closet with all of you.

For Valentine's Day, my boyfriend, Jon, and I decided to go to the opera. This would be the second opera that we've been to together. This particular opera was called The Mikado, and it's actually in English! It was a fun and hilarious opera to attend. Going to the opera also means dressing up, and since it was Valentine's Day weekend, I wanted to pink it up a little bit.

I went shopping at Kohl's and fell in love with this dress. Pink has always been one of my favorite colors.

I've always wanted a dress with a heart cutout, and I was so excited to find this one. It was the perfect dress for the opera and for Valentine's Day.

Of course I had to accessorize. I love anything with hearts, bows, and infinities, so I sported all three of them to the opera.

Dress: Kohl's - $27.99 (on sale)
Inifinity Ring: Kohl's - $11.70 (on sale)
Bow Belt: JCPenney - came with a dress that I bought for $8 (on sale)
Clutch: 2012 graduation gift
Heart Bracelet: Kohl's - $10.40 (on sale)

As you can see, I like sales. I hardly buy anything that's not on sale. Thanks for taking the time to read my guest post on Amy's blog. I hope you come to visit me at Endless Bliss!

Guest Post: H&K Style Journey: Pin It and Did It Thursday

Hello Amy Fashion readers!  I am Heather and I blog over at H&K Style Journey,
  Every Thursday have a fun link up called Pinned It and Did It.  If any of you are like me, I spend way too much time on Pinterest!  My boards were starting to get really full and I wasn't actually doing anything with them.  One day I decided to start putting them to good use.  Here are a couple outfits that I put my own spin on from some outfits that I pinned.

Pinterest is a great source of inspiration for everything from outfit ideas to DIY projects and recipes. 

Be sure to stop by H&K Style Journey and say hello!

Thank you Amy for having me guest post for you while you are in Paris!  Have a wonderful time and I can't wait to see your photos when you get back!

February Nails Recap

2-6-2014 Blue Sky Gel Polish in Hot Pop Pink
2-21-2014 elf golden goddess and blush Valentines Day Swap Gift From
Tiffany of Endless Bliss.
Hello Everyone. This month I only painted my nail twice. Mainly due to I have been super busy this month. I so don't recommend buying the Blue Sky Gel Polish Line. It's no good. It only stay on you nails for 1 weeks. Which I have the Emmi-Easy UV-Polish brand and it last 2 weeks. Like gel polish is supposed to last. 

This month I try Elf nail polish out for the first time, Thanks to Tiffany of Endless Bliss for sending it to me in my Valentines Swap box. This nail polish dry super quick. Which I love. Also the color is super pretty. The blush color is like a peachy color. Then I used the golden goddess over the blush. I was only going to do my ring finger but since I liked how it look. I went ahead and did all my nails.

30 for 30 Recap for 2014

Hello Everyone. As most of you know I just finish up my 30 for 30 last week. I had so much fun doing this but I'm glad to have my all my clothes and shoe back. With doing this 30 for 30 I rediscover 3 items that I hadn't worn in a few year. Also I learn that a Chambray shirt goes with a lot of things. I have no idea why I didn't start wearing this shirt after I brought it in March. I didn't start wearing it until December.

Another thing I learn is my  brown vest can go with a good amount of  clothes I have. Another item that was sitting in the closet with the tags on it. Also with doing this 30 for 30 it got me to pattern mix. Which I never did before. That happen on day 26.  

Outfit I disliked
Day 19~ The outfit idea was good in my head but didn't turn out all that well. I think the plaid shirt needed to be longer. 

Outfit I loved
Day 11, 25, 29

I wore every items twice beside my Hot Pink Skirt. It's one item that I have to figure out what else to wear with it. Plus if it was warm I think I would have been able to do more with it.

Monthly Remix Recap: Aeropostale Grey Thin Sweater

 September 15, 2011~White Cami and Black Linen Pants

Hello Everyone. I'm back with another monthly remix items. For this month I pick my  Aeropostale Grey Thin Sweater. I have worn this sweater 9 time on the blog. I got this sweater back in the early 2000's at  Aeropostale for  39.50. Which I have worn it so much it start to fall apart. So I just sewed it up with some grey thread. What I love most about this sweater is that you can wear it all year around. Which was great when I live in Florida a few years ago. 

Sorry for some of the picture being hard to see. They were taking in my early years of blogging. 

I'm taking the weekend off from blogging. So new post will be up on Monday.

Day 29: Firmoo Review

Wallflower Curvy Bootcut Jean From the PX~25.47
Small Hoop Earrings From Target
Gotta Flurt Shoe Gift From Hubby for my Birthday~ 13.00 from DSW

Hello Everyone. Today I doing a review for you all on Firmoo. In the middle of January I got contact by Firmoo asking if I would like to do a review for them.  I told them I would love to do the review for them. It took me 3 days to pick out a pair of glasses. I wanted to do the review on. Since they have a huge selection. What help me pick out my glasses was the online frame try on. You upload a picture of you face. Then you start click on the glasses you would like to try on. Which it gives you an idea how they will look on you face.  

After I pick out about 10 pair of glasses I asked my Husband which one he like the best and he pick these one. Which I will have to say he did an awesome job. I'm in love with them. I have been finding myself wearing them more then my pink one

I will say I was a little scary with ordering glasses online. Since I have never done it before. With Fimoo they make it super easy for you. All you need is a prescription that is no older then 3 year. When you go to order your glass it will ask you for your SPHERE, CYL, DIST PD and if you have any add one. So for me my SPHERE is a -3.50 in both eyes and my DIST PD is a 62. After you type that info in. It will ask you what kind of lens thickness you want. Also if you want any other special features. 

It took 6 day after my order was place to have them get shipped out. After the were shipped out it took 2 weeks for my glasses to arrive. Which is super fast for ordering them online.

Green in the glasses are grips. 
One of the features that are built in to these glasses. I got are grips. Which I really like about these glasses. The grip are so nice to have. You don't have to worry about your glasses sliding down on your nose. With my pink prada one. I didn't have this feature with them. So I had to take them back to the eye glasses shop and get them fix. I really like that the Firmoo glasses have this feature built in with them. 

Over all I'm very happy with these glasses and the Firmoo Company. The one downside I have had with these glasses are they don't fix in the hard case that they sent me. The glasses do fit prefect in the soft case. So at least I have one case I can put my glasses in. Along with the cases you get. You also get a cleaning cloth and a eye glass screw driver keychain. So that way if you ever need to clean or fix you glasses you have it. 

Firmoo also offer a First Pair Free program. All you have to do is pay the shipping on them. So if you are in the need of new glasses go check this program out. 


Disclaimer: I was not paid to write this review. I was given the glasses for free to try out. All opinions are my own.
