Annie’s Killer Concealer Combo For Knocking Out Dark Circles

Dark circles: (almost) all of us have them, and mine in particular are pretty horrendous. Sadly it’s just a genetic thing, everything I’ve tried as far as rest and nutrition have had very little impact. While I do my best to embrace my (many) flaws, I do feel more confident about myself when I have my dark circles covered. I have tried concealer after concealer in attempts to mask said darkness, but lately I’ve stumbled on a combo that is really doing the trick.

Fashion and Film: Clueless

It’s safe to say that I have always been obsessed with everything and anything that has to do with 90′s culture. The fashion, the music scene, the films; everything was absolutely perfect. One of my favorite films to come from this era is definitely the cult classic teen comedy Clueless. Based on the life of spoiled California brat Cher Horowitz, the film focuses on Cher’s attempt to make new girl Tai cool with the in crowd all while making everybody else around her happy. While trying her best to the make the world perfect, Cher realizes the type of person she really wants to be all while coming to terms with the complicated things in life.

Below are some of my favorite looks and how you can recreate them this spring season.

6 Flip Flop Alternatives

I get the draw of flip flops, they are easy to toss on, easy to wear, and you do not have to put much thought into them. I understand why people wear them, but I really do not support it. Maybe it is just my personal pet peeve, but the “flip flop” sound made as they smack the bottom of a person’s foot is as bad as nails on a chalkboard. Also, flip flops seem to me to be the “I have given up” shoe, sweatpants for your feet.

Sure, they have their place, when you are at the beach or pool, but outside of those limited times, flip flops should be kept at home. There are so many other sandal options that exist, that take minimal extra effort to put on and actually make the wearer look fashionable. To prove it, here are six sandals that require nothing more than a buckle, if that, to secure it to your foot.

When it is gloomy, rainy, humid, grey and overall looks sad outside, it is hard to motivate yourself to put together a cute outfit, especially if you get crazy, frizzy like me on days like this. Honestly, days like this make calling out of work or skipping class seem like the best option. Getting dressed is hard enough, but making an effort through the mess of rain, wind and possibly hail, that is dedication. Luckily, bloggers and the stylish people of the Internet have that dedication and offer plenty of inspiration for those days you just stare into your closet with no idea how to dress for the grossness that awaits you outside.
