DIY: T-Shirt Scarf

Today was a boring lazy Saturday, the best day to get into some DIY projects.
I have a HUGE scarf obsession, especially lightweight ones for the spring/ summer time.
So I decided to look around on the internet for some ideas 
and I decided to try and make a super stylish yet easy to make sewing needed!

Step 1: Gather materials
All you need is a t-shirt, old or new, and a pair of scissors.
Since I treasure my plain t-shirts, and like to buy nicer ones, I decided to run to Forever 21 and pick up a simple and inexpensive one- only $4.80!

Step 2: Cut the bottom of the shirt off. Cut a straight line right under the armpit of the sleeve.

Step 3: Cut parallel lines into the bottom of the shirt. 
I cut mine a little less that half way up the shirt. The higher you cut, the longer the fringe. 

Step 4: Lightly pull each slice to give the fringe have a curled look.

And now your finished! Enjoy!

Tiny Little NYC Haul

On my day trip to NYC last Saturday, I was pretty overwhelmed with 
all of the fun stores. Therefore, I only purchased a sweater,
a scarf, a pair of sweats (weird yes I know) and two gorgeous lipsticks!
I have never purchased lipstick from either Bobbi Brown or Smashbox,
but after I purchased these two I am hooked!
I cannot wait to expand my collection from both companies now!
Top: Bobbi Brown creamy lip color in 32 Coral Pink
Bottom: Smashbox Be Legendary lipstick in Posy Pink

BB Cream Battle!

So I have been wanting to test the waters of the BB Cream craze that has taken over the beauty world, however, I don't have the patience or the courage to take on buying a product from Japan that I'm unable to test in person. Recently, more BB Creams are becoming available in the US to stores like Ulta and Sephora. This has made me very excited because now I am able to try them out. I'm going to be testing out the BB Creams by Dior, Garneia, Stilla, and Smashbox. I will be doing reviews along with tutorials of each product that I try so that you all can get a better feel for the way each one works! I'm so excited to be doing this because from what I've tried so far I'm in love with the way the look and wear! Make sure to check back on my youtube channel MermaidsCloset for these reviews!

Yoga-Ta-Get This Nail Look!

Granted, this is week old polish, it's still an amazing combination!
To Get The Look:
1. Paint 1 coat of OPI YOGA-TA-GET THIS BLUE!.
2. Apply a top coat - I used my favorite Seche Vite.
3. Apply a light coat of Essie SET IN STONES just to the tip of each nail.
4. Apply another coat of Seche Vite.
Thats all there is to this combination and yet it still looks so fun and glitzy...
 like a spring time night sky :)

Squeeky Clean Face! Clarisonic PLUS

So I have been wanting a Clarisonic System for quite some time now, but I honestly didn't think it was worth the price- over $200 for a machine to clean your face...really?? REALLY!! After searching around for the best package deals I finally decided to bite the bullet and purchase this "cult followed" device and let me honestly admit- I have never experienced such a refreshing feeling in my life time! Not a gimmicky product by any means!

New Bag: Marc Jacobs

My current obsession? This baby right here! 
The Marc by Marc Jacobs 'Classic Q - Francesca' to be exact :) 
With its creamy black leather and its abnormally large size, it's no wonder I'm in love! It's currently en route from the store to my arms now- or else I would be sporting it in my own picture. I have been lusting this bag for over a year no- so I'm trying to patiently wait by my door for it's arrival! Hopefully only a day or two more of waiting left!! I will keep you all posted with better pictures upon it's arrival!
For more info:
Purchased Here!

Until then
