Hey all! This is my first ever Kelly Awards! (You would think I would come up with a more creative name! haha) This is similar to 5 things I heart but is focused more on products or trends that I think deserve a shout-out. These are things I have or have tried so they do have a little creditability! I hope you find this useful! Let me know if you try or buy any of these!
1) FOREVER 21 JEGGINGS
I just bought these last Thursday (for only $14.90) and I literally wore them ALL weekend. I even wore them for Fashion Friday. They are so comfortable. They have that soft legging feel – no stiffness at all! A lot of the jeggings I tried on were still JEANS…. not these. Plus I like that they have that jean-looking seam down the sides. I definitely recommend these!
2) THE 1995 PRIDE & PREJUDICE on DVD
This version of Pride & Prejudice beats out the Keira Knighty version by a landslide. Don’t get me wrong I enjoyed that version too but this one is a lot more convincing and fun to watch. I really could watch this over and over. Colin Firth is perfect in it. I got this for Christmas from my mom and I am tempted every Sunday to put it on. This is a good one to own. You can find it here.
3) PAPAYA JOURNALS
I have blogged about Papaya Art before and I really can’t sing their praises enough. I love their stuff… it’s so original and pretty. In the past couple years I have enjoyed journaling so I was excited when I got this one from my husband. I think it’s really important to journal… definitely a good way to process through thoughts. What I do a lot is write down prayers which really helps when I’m just not sure where to begin. Does anyone reading this journal? Try it out and buy something pretty to write in!
4) L’OREAL VOLUMINOUS ORIGINAL MASCARA
This is my all-time favorite mascara. I have tried so many different kinds from Dior to CoverGirl and this is the one I keep going back to. It doesn’t have one of those giant brushes that a lot of the mascaras have right now (which provide no benefit by the way) so it has more control. And it doesn’t go on clumpy because it stays pretty wet in the bottle. Get it in Blackest Black for a bigger impact. Plus it’s only around $7 at any drugstore.
5) SIDE BRAIDS
I became obsessed with side braids ever since my officemate Teresa showed me the Alexander Wang fashion show… they all had their hair in one heavy, messy side braid. I love this look! It’s so simple yet why didn’t I think of this?? I love that this is so easy and it doesn’t have to be perfect. Plus I’m getting sick of little tiny tight braids. Here’s me in a side braid last week:
Have a happy Monday ;)
