3 New Things

Forever 21 tank // DIY maxi skirt // vintage Coach bag // Dolce Vita sandals // Milani nail polish

Today I tried 3 new things: the sock bun that every one has been talking about, black eyeliner, and a new glitter nail polish! For the sock bun I sacrificed a pair of my boyfriend's socks - I thought that he wouldn't notice, but it turns out that I cut up his favorite pair...oops.
For the eyeliner, I never wear it! Same with mascara. I long ago gave up eyeliner and mascara for two reasons: I got so sick of it smearing all over the place, and also because I could never seem to find a product that would thoroughly remove the stuff. Seeing myself in either of these two products is now such a shock: it took me a little while to get used to seeing myself - I wasn't sure if I had done it right!

Also, I know I posted about this yesterday but could you please vote for me? I have been invited to participate in a video contest in which I share my "favorite fashion moment of the summer". I chose getting dressed! The video is supposed to be 60 seconds or less, and made with your phone camera. You can vote through your Facebook account, and you can find my video here: http://www.videofy.me/ambersmouthwash/564502
Just click the heart and make sure it turns pink to vote! I need as many votes as possible, so every vote counts!! Thank you so much!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

    And I love your sparkly nail polish!

  5. I love your look and I think this is a really cool location for photos too. The hairstyle looks amazing on you and I am totally in love with the sparkly nails. Thanks so much for your comment on my last post. I appreciate it so much. I'm thinking about not telling anyone about my cat, it is definitely an option I'd consider. She certainly wouldn't cause any damage. I guess the only issue is that she is a really loud cat, always meowing haha!
