It's official! I love Ashley Greene. She is my latest style crush.

I remember the first time I saw her outside of Twilight I had no idea she was Alice Cullen. She looks very different out of character, but still super gorgeous! I want to recreate all these looks.

What do you think of Ashley Greene? Who is your current style muse?

Padding My Lashes

I recently bought the L'Oreal lash boosting serum to use to create fuller, longer lashes. You might have seen this on other blogs. Actually, that's where I first saw it. You're supposed to see true results after a period of 4 weeks, so I will do a follow-up post in about a week's time with before and after photos. Wish me luck because I think I have some of the shortest eyelashes in existence.

How do you guys feel about using products like this (and many others) to "create" fuller lashes?

Or products that give you fuller lips?
Boots Time Dimensions Lip Plumper at Target for $9

Lip Plumper by Benefit at Sephora for $22

Or products that give you thicker, more shapely brows?
Anastasia Brow Enhancing Serum for $36 at Sephora

Or even bigger, doe-like eyes?
Circle Lenses

Do you welcome them or just prefer the real thing?

I also bought this cute butterfly necklace online for only $2! I have a thing for butterflies so I was super excited to get this in the mail. What do you think?

  2. Awwwwww.. its awesome o.o

    thanks for the tag cheryl xD

  3. i love circles and i quite like flase eye lashes and such i dislike it when ppl wear them all the time though i don't see the point

  4. Omg! I didn't know Ashley Greene was so beautiful off screen! That's a really pretty necklace, where did you get it from?

  5. i think it works! and i love giveaways. did it work? hahah

  6. She is a very elegant model.
    I'm interested in the serum you are trying. I can't wait to see your follow up post! I am afraid of the laitse or whatever.. the damaging affects it claimed were scary. However a conditioning serum makes sense. I condition my hair, lotion my skin, hell I even put drops in my eyes. It makes sense that my lashes could use some lovin too.

  7. she's gorgeous!!! and i absolutely love cirque de soleil. i want to see every show too!! :D

  8. thankyouso much for following and commenting on my blog!
    yours is lovely, and looks so professional! :D

    I love love love Ashley Greene <3

    thanks agaaaaain. I'm following yours now, too.



  9. ashley greene is such a babe. but i'm really digging kristen stewart's style. it's a little more edgy... more rock star. love her red carpet dresses.

    oh and i totally love the butterfly necklace.

    don't feed the models. part 2.

  10. Ashley Greene is gorgeous, she has such a perfect nose. Oh and please do let us know how the L'Oreal Lash Serum works out. I currently use Talika Lipocils, but I'd be interested in trying this if it yields positive results.


  11. oh she is gorgeous. I tried those contact lenses before but it didn't make that much of a difference. also i became concern when i see color come off.

  12. gorgeous photos!

    Tell me if that serum works! I have pretty long lashes but I think it would be fun to try. I noticed that it was kind of expensive, so let me know if i should buy it before I purchase!

    BTW- The best cheapest lip plumping serum I tried is actually by ELF. They have this double sided lip stain + plumping serum thing for like 3 bucks or something. The colors are really pretty and I notice a big difference using them!

  13. I like her too :) She definitely has an elvish look about her. I'm not a fan of those contacts myself - they remind me of that guy from Limp Bizqut (spelling) from awhile ago lol

  14. I think I have a girl crush on her too!! simply beautiful...love the first shot!

  15. I saved so many of these pictures you posted to my favorite people folder. Thank you for posting these!

    I work in an optometry office and we rarely have realistic looking contact lenses that change colors of eyes or the shape. It's quite unusual, in fact.

    Thanks for your comment on my blog :)
