There’s this amazing website called ArtsCow.com that I thought I would share
I’ve been using it for a couple of years, and have created many unique custom gifts that everyone always loves
I suggest signing up and subscribing to their newsletter, since they send out a great deal every month (Usually with free shipping too, which is usually the most costly thing)
Here’s my referral code for it, http://www.artscow.com/?Ref=969522
The reason why I am sharing it on here is because its great for making gifts for friends, or for yourself
I was thinking about it when I did the bikini guide, since they just recently added the ability to create your own custom bikini
If I hadn’t found my perfect bikini online I would’ve definitely made a custom one,
Here’s a link to the ArtsCow custom bikini that you can upload a design to get printed to
I was thinking it would be perfect for someone with a destination wedding, with a chevron print and monogram
Or, if I ever plan to go to EDC (Hopefully next summer) then I will most likely design one including the EDC logo and some daisys and such
They often have cosmetic bag sales, sent via their email, for three bags for $8.99 with free shipping, I have gotten that deal a couple of times
A few things I’ve made on ArtsCow:
I definitely recommend checking out their website, but also know that everything is made in China and expect about a month or little less between the submission of your creation and actually receiving it
This summer I will be going to Barcelona (so excited!) and I plan to spend a lot of time on the beach, so I have been on the search for the perfect bikini. I also, of course, wanted to keep the price low, and find something really chic.
I recommend searching on:
Ebay.com (Lots of great deal, huge selection)
Polyvore.com (Search items option in top right)
Forever21.com (They have some cute ones)
Asos.com (They have good sales, but expect about $30 for a bikini top; buy cheap bottoms at a local walmart or target) If you are a student, you can sign up to get a 10% discount from your purchases, you can join on the unidays section of the site or through my referral http://www.myunidays.com/r/BJukpbPB0sM/
Below I will be including some of my favorite finds. But first, here is the bikini I chose from Asos.com

Here are some ideas for styling
On April 27th, I took part in being a stylist in Fashion Inc.’s third annual fashion show. Fashion Inc. is a fashion club at my college, and I have been in the club since last fall. This spring semester I was the Public Relations Officer and made all of the graphics to promote the show.
My theme for the fashion show was revolved on the spring trend of black and white. In general I just love black, so I of course am loving the black, white, and leather trend. All of the clothes I used for the show were out of my closet (except for the skirt, which I purchased thrift a few days before the show). All of my outfits were black and white (or just black) with gold accents. I loved incorporating my ankle cuffs on to Rose (farthest right on image), and I also used a black ribbon with gold studs to go around her bun. My models (Alex, Jenny, Amy, Elisa, and Rose) did such a great job! It was a first for all of us. Overall I had a great time with the experience of my first fashion show (It was a lot of work behind the scenes!); all the hard work was worth it.
The fashion brands are catching onto the trend! I received my regular email from a Steve Madden subscription and there was Lua, famous blogger, displaying her different looks in 3 pairs of Steve Madden shoes. I’m loving it! Seeing Lua was pretty awesome since she is very famous on lookbook, and I just really love her style. Get ready to see more and more fashion blogger icons in an ad near you!
So I have the privilege to blog about a new collection by Warby Parker
The 1922 collection features vintage style glasses for the modern person. I love the old-fashioned styles, which are always a trend for the current age. The styles are also available in a sunglasses version.
Warby Parker also has a “Buy a pair give a pair program” which is great!

Very unique and chic!
Two weeks ago, my friend Alex and I had a quick photoshoot in her beautiful backyard
How amazing is that backyard? It is absolutely lovely, like being camping 24/7 At least that’s how I see it
Alex and I took some photos, and that’s how I created my newest look on Lookbook
Alex helped me title it Tonight, after a song from the Jonas Brothers since we both have a long-time obsession with them. It went with the fact that we would be celebrating her 22nd birthday that night.
I’m wearing a peplum-ish polka dot and black dress from Charlotte Russe, it was on clearance for like $15. The black and gold buckle belt is also from Charlotte Russe. I also have on my favorite leather sleeve blazer from New York & Co., and my favorite buckle wedges from Nordstrom Rack by Dolce Vita.
