Just some random FOTD's For You Ladies!!

I haven't posted FOTD's in a while, so hear you go chicas!
Oh, and this is when I bleached (or I really should say "lightened") by brows.
They match my hair so much better!
Mascara is Maybelline "Falsies."
I recommend using a good mascara base first because my lashes look kind of spidery without the base.
What do you think?

ARCH IT!


This entire "cut the crease look" was used with MAC's Dirrty Greasepaint Stick.
It was also used as my eyeliner!
I wish I would have gotten a back-up on one because I use it constantly.
My hair was way gold... ugh. When I am blonde, I like to have almost WHITE hair...
Is that weird? Maybe so, but it's my preference.
How's everybody's week going so far?
Any plans this weekend?
I'm doing a quick spa trip today at Alexis K. in Solana Beach (review coming soon).
Saturday I am doing makeup for a couple of weddings.
Lastly, Sunday I'm going to my uncle and aunt's big bbq... should be fun~!

It's pretty easy to enter, so don't be lazy ladies!
It ends this Tuesday, August 31st.

Etsy Jewelry Review: The River Is Everywhere

...eccentric jewelry and accessories...
About
My name is Samantha. Please call me Sam.
I am a one-woman show. I imagine, create, take pictures, and hopefully sell everything found in my shop.
Most designers or crafters claim to have practically come out of the womb carrying sheers and a hot glue gun. I guess i loved dress up and fashion just like every 5 year old girl. My grandmother influenced my first sense of fashion design. She made me these simple cloth halter tops, that at the age of 8 i thought i looked fabulous in. I've always been somewhat creative and crafty, but not until high school did i begin to experiment with creating my own stuff. I now am studying in college to become a Family and Consumer Science (Home Economics) Teacher. I'ts my dream job. everything i love: cooking,clothes, and kids.....all in one! If you'v read this far, thanks. thanks a bunch :) 
You will find both vintage and handmade 'stuff' in my shop.
All of my handmade creations come from a pet-free, smoke- free environment. Since they are handmade it is not uncommon that there will be slight imperfections which I tend to believe adds to the unique charm of every creation.
How cool is this headband?! She made the heart out of a zipper!
Check out Sam's other AMAZING headbands here.

I love rosettes, especially on headbands!

This is an item I never would have thought would look good!
This is SUPER cute and really simple!
It is a cloth braided bracelet, slightly stretchy.

Rings
Check out Sam's other rings here.
I love chrysanthemum rings! This one wasn't photographing the way it looks, such a bummer.
Basically, it is hot pink at the "root" (very bottom) and it fades up to white at the tip of the "petals."
If that makes any sense?
Either way, it is an awesome ring!

Mustache Ring
I think this is the cutest ring ever!!!
Definitely a conversation starter.
And mustaches seem to be popping up everywhere these days.

I absolutely LOVE Sam's creations! Everything is definitely eccentric and fun, some items are a little kawaii!
Sam's shop, The River Is Everywhere, is one of my favorite shops on etsy.
There is always something new and fun!!
She makes a wide variety of jewelry and accessories.
