Spring Fashion Must-Haves

by Shae Peppler April 22, 2013

Hi all! I’m back, and with a list of some of my favorite pieces you MUST GO GET for spring! Wherever you may live, these are wardrobe wants for any closet, and pieces you can mix and match from day to night. Let’s start at the top…




1) Fringe, flowy, top – Now, I am a lover of fringe (hence my blog name), but this Free People top embraces the look in t-shirt form and with ombre coloring. I mean, what more can you ask for? Throw it on with a pair of distressed shorts, light skinny jeans, or dress it up with leather leggings for a sexy night out. 




2) The perfect graphic tee – I, unfortunately, am not heading to any music festivals this year, but if I was, I would most def be rocking a graphic tee or tank of some sort. They are so casual, yet understatedly sexy. Many have rips and tears in them to give you the rock ‘n roll meets girl next door look. Tousle your hair a bit and werk* it with an ankle boot or chunky wedge. 




3) Bright blouse – Neons and brights are here to stay, and thank goodness, because I cannot look at any more dreary colors. Hook yourself up with a light-weight, bright, button-down that you can half tuck into rolled shorts or floral denim, or swap the bottom for a dressier look with a hi-low skirt, and tie the front of the blouse in a knot and add a statement necklace.




4) Light denim skinnies – No, they do not make your legs look fat. Let’s just get that out of the way since that was my biggest caveat with the light denim as well. I love these with pastel colors or graphic tees, and they look uber cool with sandals or wedge gym shoes. A nice departure from your dressier dark denim that I’m sure you lived in all winter.




5) The perfect boyfriend jean - This is a tough one to find, but the ones I nabbed have a distressed look and a slightly skinny jean fit (think straight leg jeans with movement). I love this look with a plain tee, cool hat ,or head accessory, and a fun sandal or heel. It’s an unexpected cool.




6) Sneaker Wedges – If you haven’t hopped onto the sneaker wedge bandwagon, hop on! It’s the best thing to happen to my shoe collection since leggings hit my pants rotation. Again, comfort is key, and these look great with everything from shorts to skinnies to minis. Go for a neutral color for spring (throwing my black ones in the back of the closet for now) and enjoy the little lift.

Spring Beauty - Lip Colors!

by Lauren Wickman April 15, 2013

Hi there! This is Lauren from L.A. in the bay, back again to share one of my favorite things about Spring Beauty - the lip colors! If you read my blog, you would know that I have sort of an obsession with lipstick. Bright pinks, bold reds, punchy corals - no matter the occasion, you can find me wearing them!


One of Spring's biggest makeup trends is combining a fresh face (dewy or matte) with bold brows and an even bolder lip. See here. This is one look I will definitely be sporting this Spring. Another Spring trend that I am particularly fond of is the combination of bold lashes with a soft tangerine or peachy lip. So incredibly fresh. 


Makeup is all about trying new things, so what better way to start than with your lips. Here are some of my favorite lipsticks and lip colors that are sure to make you look Spring-ready. 




1. Radiant Cosmetics Lipstick in Daphne $22

This lipstick is without-a-doubt one of my favorites. In a pinky fuchsia shade, this lipstick provides the bold effect you want for Spring and is incredibly hydrating all at the same time. And the best part about it - with every lipstick that you buy, you will be helping in the fight to end human trafficking. Beauty at its best, if you ask me.


2. MAC Lipstick in Candy Yum Yum $15

This lipstick is a definite statement maker. It is one of the hottest pink lip colors out on the market right now and works well with any skin tone.


3. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Pro's Picks Lip Tar Set $49 

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics are becoming one of the most popular makeup brands. With a wide selection of "lip tars" to choose from, this combo set helps narrow the choices down by combining all of Spring's gorgeous shades.


4. Revlon Creme Lipstick in Hot Coral $7.99 

This has long been one of my favorite, go-to shades. It is the perfect coral and is so incredibly hydrating. People will definitely be stopping you when you're wearing this shade!


5. Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Sweet Tart $5.99 

Revlon Lip Butter's are definitely the lip colors you are going to want to stalk up on for Spring. To say that they are incredibly moisturizing would be an understatement. This is one of my favorite shades of the bunch. It has the prettiest peachy undertone. 


6. NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Biscayne Park $25 

If NARS' Matte Lip Pencils didn't already gain enough popularity, the satin lip pencils surely will. With a subdued look, this pink guava shade will act as the perfect everyday lip color.


7. Estee Lauder Pure Color Crystal Lipstick in Mandarin Pop $25 

Take yourself to the Bahamas with this tropical shade. With a touch of shimmer, you will be looking like a bronzed goddess in no time.



Will you be adding any of these gorgeous shades to your Spring makeup bag?

MANstyle Review: WetTech

by RemReadyMan April 8, 2013




Hey guys and gals-


Jr. here, Men’s Style and Grooming Expert, to talk about the NEW Remington WetTech Rotary Shaver and Sensitive Shave Gel. The great part about this shaver is it can be used in or out of the shower, versatility at its best. The electric blue shaver is very light and the soft grip casing makes it easier to handle when it’s wet. The best thing about shaving in the in shower is, I dunno… everything? It doesn’t eat into your morning routine, the mirror makes it 10x easier to get a close, even shave, and lastly, combining it with the shave gel makes your skin incredibly smooth. Not to mention not having to worry about the mess, always looks like my sink grew a beard of it’s own when I’m done. I don’t think I’ll ever shave again without the Sensitive Shave Gel. My skin is always so smooth after using it, and… it doesn’t stink. Well, it does have a scent, but it’s very light and fresh. I spend way too much money on cologne to smell like I just walked out of an axe commercial. The shaver comes with a charging stand, so when all said and done, just drop it in the stand so you’re all set for the next shave. If you (or your man) prefers a close, smooth shave… I highly recommend picking up this shaver and shave gel combo.

Spring Break Essentials

by Alexandra Machover April 1, 2013

Spring break has been approaching ever so slowly this year (so has spring for that matter), and if you’re like me, you are ready for a (warm) vacation. This year I’m making my getaway even more special by treating myself to a few essentials that will keep me looking cool under the sun. 




1.Retro Inspired Bikini

High-waisted yet sexy, flirty yet coy, a vintage-inspired bathing suit is my swimwear of choice this season. This style honors a woman’s curves while leaving something to be desired. Go for a funky vibe with bold prints or keep it classic with simple color blocks. Either way, you’ll definitely be the most fashion forward swimmer at the pool.




2.  Jewels at the pool


No outfit is complete without an accessory or two, even if that outfit is a bathing suit and flip-flops. Which brings me to my next Spring Break essential—statement jewelry. Rather than accessorizing with plastic party beads this year, choose a bejeweled necklace, chandelier earrings or stacked bangles (or all three for that matter).



3.  A Printed Scarf


While SPF and sunglasses are staple items for when you’re under the hot sun, sometimes it’s refreshing to protect yourself from the heat in a more creative, stylish way. That’s when a printed scarf comes in handy. Tie one around your head to stay cool or drape it over your shoulders to prevent them from burning. Silky scarves are an accessory that is both practical and cute… what more can you ask for? 

These essentials are some that I’ll definitely be rocking this Spring Break. Be sure to keep updated with my vacation fashion endeavors on my blog, Spur of the Moments.
