FashionLWD Day to Night with Grasie Mercedes on LookTV

As a busy girl, pulling off an outfit from day to night is key. Working or running errands in the day and then jetting to a work meeting over cocktails or ladies night with friends can be easy with just a few key pieces. Since summer is pretty much in full effect (at least here in Northern Cali- scorching!) Grasie had the idea to take the concept of the Little Black Dress and give it a seasonal spin! Bright white is perfect for these hot days and the cut of this dress is super swingy and cute!  Hence the new term, LWD=Little White Dress!
Take a look below as Grasie describes how to use a few essential pieces to create two effortless looks!

BeautyBlogger Picks: Drug Store Beauty

“My favorite drug store buy is Garnier Surf Hair. Even though I no longer live anywhere near the ocean, I can still get that wave-toussled look. I’ll run a small amount through damp hair, throw it up in a messy bun for my drive to work, and by the time I arrive, my hair looks like I just stepped off the beach!”

“I’ve become obsessed with Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream . It’s about 13 bucks. I love it because I don’t like to (read: don’t have the time to) wear heavy foundation during the work week. This is as simple to put on as moisturizer and it gives you that “my skin naturally looks this way” glow. Bonus: It has SPF in it so I’m also protecting my skin!”
“My favorite drugstore beauty buys are definitely the Revlon lipsticks. They go on so well and they have a great selection of colors. I love the Orange Flip for summer :)”

Psssst brand Dry Shampoo! I swear by this stuff. Having red hair means I either sacrifice the brightness to wash it every other day, or using products like dry shampoo to help keep it clean, full of volume, and best of all — red! It also comes in really handy for summer days, travelings, and road trips. I always keep a can in my car.”

“My favorite drugstore item is the Revlon Just Bitten lipstains. They are awesome! Last all day and are not heavy like a lipsticks. I have like every color! The perfect way to get color on your lips for girls who hate to wear lipstick (like me!)”
What are your favorite drugstore beauty buys?

ContestsWin from BonLook and LuLu*s

Have you guys heard about BonLook?  If you haven’t, you are going to be so excited! You can get prescription lenses and frames of your choice starting at just $99! As a lifetime wearer of corrective lenses and contacts, I have always been excited to get new glasses, but so bummed when I’ve had to shell out several hundred dollars for frames and lenses. The expense has made getting a new pair sort of a special occasion, not to mention having to be so careful with them! Does anyone else remember breaking their glasses and having to explain THAT to Mom and Dad? Well, fret no more, because now at such great prices you can build an “eyewear wardrobe” so you have choices depending on your mood!
 
BonLook sent me a pair of their awesome, Drink the Kool-Aid frames in black and clear. I loved this look because they remind me of horn-rimmed styles from the ’60s, kind of like James Dean. If anything reminds me of either of those two things, I AM SOLD.
I created an account on their site, entered in my prescription information, and then patiently waited for my glasses to arrive. I was so stoked when they arrived only a few days later! Let me tell you that this pair of complete glasses for $99 goes above and beyond in the quality department. I have paid a TON of money for “designer” frames and they were not as well made or sturdy as these adorable glasses. I love the black and clear coloring with the classic vintage-inspired styling. I have had these for a few weeks and they are so comfortable! I get a ton of compliments on them. My prescription is just right, too! I will definitely order from them in the future; such a great value!
