Forever 21 Haul

SO... I love Forever 21!!! (mostly because they have stuff that fits me!) So I didn't get all these things at once, this has been over maybe a year or something and my mom had tons of coupons so might as well just go!


This is like a mini sweater thing, and it's super cute! I wore it a lot back in the fall just because that royal blue color was just georgious! It's made out of cotton and has vintage gold buttons on the shoulders. I think when I grow out of this I would use those buttons for something cool



This is a super cute and flowy stripped yellow and white sweater. In the picture it looks orange but in real life it's a soft yellow. I wore this for a whole entire day when it was 95 degrees out side and it
kept me cool because it was so flowy.


This black and white polka dotted dress is what I imagine and lovely lady in Paris wearing to a dinner with bright red lipstick on and some magnificent updo! I wore this to one of my piano concerts and I played a song about France so it was perfect! I love the ruffle sleeves! Get something like this if you are looking for a classic look


This is the coolest sun dress ever! And it's mint green! The print is so girly and spunky and the tie in the middle is just TO DIE FOR! I love it how everything in Forever 21 are just simple things but they have really trendy twists to them that make you want to buy them SO bad!


How retro and classy is this?!? It has pleats which are in right now and the sleeves are kind of puffy so it gives you such a retro look!


Peeter pan collars are supposedly the best right now and I agree! I always wear white under it but I'm thinking other colors like navy and other cream colors would work. What do you think? I love the lace!


I wore this to a brunch like thing on Easter and it seemed to fit very well! It is very vintage and classy, I wore it with a jeans jacket! I am loving the floral and buttons on the shoulder these days!


This is my most recent buy along with the yellow stripe sweater (I am going crazy with stripes, so trendy right now!) so I have been wearing it a lot latley. It has a really cool kind of towel feeling texture in the inside but it's pure cotton in th outside. I love stripes and cotton and blue so I got it. :) 


I. Wear. This. Practically. Every. Day. I don't know how long it's been since I bought this. Probably a 2 or 3 years! Ha, and they said Forever 21 stuff doesn't last... I wear this with every dress, every shirt, and every blouse. It's so comfy too!


I didn't even know I had this till about 2 seconds ago! I just found a forever 21 bag on the round and I was about to throw it away when I looked inside and here this was! It's like the angles gave me a present:) I mean HEY I'll keep it! All the detail on this is really cute, I think this gives you and edgy look but not completley over the edge. :)

That's it! Wow, that took a while!! So hopefully you guys can see my sense of style through all of these buys! I love all of these clothes and if you find something similar, get it!!!

Have fun doing what your doing this summer!

Review: CVS Purifying Mint Masque

So I am writing this now while I have it on my face!! Haha so this is a really cool product I will just start now!

(I got this picture from the CVS website

Price: Very,very,very affordable!!!! It's gonna be around 4 dollars where ever you go and this is the store brand, so whereever you go to get this, get the store brand because it's cheaper and probably works just the same.

Quality: Very good so far, kept my face non-oily for 2 days! I put it on before the New York Trip because I thought, what if I'm not able to wash my face? So I slapped it on the night before and BAM I'm good!! It comes out very thick and I was like, whoa this stuff is tough! But then once I put it on my face, it was very creamy and thin. Which does require a pretty good amount of product in 1 use. The bottle was really full and after 3 uses it's already getting pretty thin!

Usage: I leave it on for 15 minutes about 2-3 times a week. Where to get: Probably any drugstore out there! I mean of course the CVS brand won't be at Walgreens but the Walgreens brand might!

Rating: I give it a 4 out of 5 just because it is running out kind of quickly and it made my skin feel great but it was STUNNING you know what I mean???

So yeah hope this was helpful for you beauty gals' out there! If your looking for a cheep, good quality mask, ding ding ding! You have it right here! Have fun doin what your doing!

So, as y'all know I haven't been so good about posting. So from now on instead of posting about 4-5 times a week we are going to change it to 2-3. Just because things are getting so busy around here. But as soon as school goes out, man I will be posting like crazy because I'll have nothing to do! So, I just wanted y'all to know that.

Also, I have a Twitter account! So if you want, follow me, or if you don't have a twitter just check in on my page. I will post more often there of course. Here is the link:!/faith_katie

Yes, my username is @faith_katie... it's weird but oh well!

Standardized Testing: How To Survive!

I don't know about you other people but in my school out standardized testing starts this week. (ugh) I am definitely panicked but I shouldn't be because there is nothing I can do about it! Anyways, you can't study for these babies so might as well just do what you can! Alright lets get started!


So at my school we have uniforms so we don't have a choice but if you don't have uniforms seriously, wear something comfy! I mean you don't want to wear some annoying shirt thing that you always fiddle with, just wear what ever you feel relaxed in and manageable in. And wear your most comfortable shoes too. If we didn't have uniforms I'd be wearing jeans, a sweatshirt and converse!


The same thing as clothes, wear what ever style is comfortable with you. It may be pulled back, but for me sometimes pulling my hair back in some tight pony tail or bun gives me a headache and it just hurts! But if it's comfortable to you, go for it! Also, don't wear a tight headband or huge hair accessory that rubs or sometimes bothers you.


Yes, you read that right. Nails. If you are like me and painting your nails keeps you from biting you nails, paint them right now! You don't want to sit there being all nervous while taking the test and biting your nails! It's not good for you nails and trust me, it doesn't help you calm down either. Just relax and fill in those those answer bubbles with pretty nails!


This might be a time of stress to you so just give yourself some time to a DIY mask or do something special with your hair. I mean just accept it, things like this makes girls happy! So do this so you can be happy and feeling beautiful! I would suggest doing this 2 -3 times during the school week. Make Monday, Wednesday, and Friday your pamper days! I will do a tutorial for another mask tomorrow.

Cleaning Yourself

When you take a shower take it with warm water, this opens up the pores on your head so you can get all the gunk out! Haha! Also take a soothing bath on your pamper days and put some bath salts in with Eucalyptus or Lavender, this will help you clear your mind and feel relaxed. Always remember to put some lotion on too! This also relaxes you and makes your skin feel great.


Last but not least, you health matters the most. I can not express this highly enough, go to sleep early!!!
I have to admit I haven't done this other years but this year I have made a pledge to go to sleep at 8:30. Even if I can't fall asleep I'm still getting in the bed at that time. Then, set your alarm clock with just enough time for you to get ready and then get going to school. Just so you can sleep as much as possible. If you wake up early, great! You can do extra homework or something.

Remember also to eat a healthy breakfast! Bring a bottle of water to school and always have it with you while your taking the tests and bring a healthy snack too!

If you usually take vitamins, great! But if you don't, now is the time! I love getting the little kiddie ones that support your brain! Yay! (I also love the ones that are gummy bears!!!!)

Okay hope this helped you guys a little! I know it's a lot of typing and no pictures but you get the point right? Alright, I wish you guys luck this week or whenever your testing week is! I'm gonna get in my bed and watch a movie because it's one of those rainy movie days. :)

Nail Tutorial: Swirly Nails

SO now that school has started up and everything I won't be posting as much but of course I will still be doing this! You can count on me posting probably about 5 times a week. Okay? Sounds good to me! So anyways this is a nail tutorial for swirly nails. Now Rosie, you actually did this to me a while ago and I was reading some magazine and it was talking about how to do it and stuff and they said it was a pretty big trend now. So all your thanks should go to Rosie for doing this even before it was a trend!!!! Yay! This nail design takes no artsy kind of talent what so ever. That's why I love it because I stink at art! Haha so lets go!

You will need

  • a bowl of water
  • 2 or 3 nail polishes
  • toothpick 
  • paper towels (lots) 
  • Q-tips
  • nail polish remover
  • top coat (and bottom coat)
Step 1: Prep

So you are going to get the place you are doing your nails ready so you won't get it all messy and whatever. Get all of your supplies too. 

Then paint a clear bottom coat on your nails, you may not usually do this but it helps the shin of the top coat. I don't have a clear polish but if you do you should use it.

Step 2: Color

Put one drop from each nail polish (I'm using purple, yellow, and orange my favorite colors!) right smack dab in the middle of the bowl. Since the yellow didn't really show up, I just used purple and orange.

Step 3: Swirl

Take your toothpick and drag it from the middle out, or the out to the middle. Make any design you want.

Step 4: Dip

Then simply dip your finger in to the water with your nail flat on top. Try as hard as you can to not get it on your skin. If you do it's okay, you can fix it later. 

Use as many designs as you want in the first drops that you do. Then when you use all you want up, re-do it again. To get rid of it, take your toothpick and stir it around your finger. It should look like this. Yikes!

Step 5: Fix

Immediately after you get your finger out, take the paper towel and wipe off as much nail polish as you can. 

Step 6: Repeat 

Do this with all of your fingers!

Step 7: Double Check

When your nails are dry, if you have remaining nail polish on your skin, put some nail polish remover on a Q-tip and rub it where the remaining nail polish is. 

Step 8: Complete

Once they are dry, put on a top coat of clear nail polish. Like I said I don't have any so I won't be doing that! 

This is the complete look! I love these nails! So cool! 

This camera is really bad!! Haha!

And thanks to Rosie for teaching me this a while ago! And thanks to the world for realizing this is an awesome trend! Talk to y'all later!
