I’ll Take You In Pieces, We Can Take it All Apart

WOW it’s been a crazy day! If you follow me on InstaGram (@EffortlessCoolSahra) you’d have noticed that I was at work bright and early, narrowly avoided a fatal car accident, had a court hearing, ate lots of deliciousness, and a doctor’s appointment; all before the 90210 Season Finale. WOAH, right?

Barami flats

Rings from Forever 21 & Urban Outfitters

Nails Of The Week: Pastel Drips

20120429-122451.jpg

Did these nails for the week! Started with ‘Licorice’ by Esse base (two coats) then used a bobby pin a la my blood drip nails tutorial to great drips in ‘Waterlily’ by Dior. Once that dried I created drips with ‘She’s Picture Perfect’ by Esse. And voila! Pastel drippy nails that almost remind me of ice cream!

Happy Birthday! and A Giveaway!

EffortlessCool is TWO years old!

Holy wow, time has gone by! But has it? Two years and I’m not sure how I feel. I feel like I should be farther along; not stuck in this rut between dream jobs. I feel like I should have had more iconic wardrobe pieces, more sponsorships and affiliates, more success with this thing. But I guess maybe it’s perceptive, and I’m just feeling this way because of my recent lull in life.

Looking back, I guess this blog HAS come a long way. Back form my first posts just WRITING about fashion-y things, to becoming more of a personal style blog, and even a once-a-week food blog. I started the NYC Fashion Bloggers group and made so many friends, attended many a fashion show and fashion event…

So, I can’t complain. This blog is my baby, and I don’t know what I’d be doing with my life without it!

With that being said, I figured I’d do something nice for all you followers and readers! A giveaway of my favorite items, just for YOU!

Dior “Waterlily” vernis parfume

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper

DiorShow mascara

Garnier Moisture Rescue

this Dior nail polish has been on my nails for WEEKS since I bought my first bottle;  perfect minty spring green!

The eyeliner has been my favorite for YEARS. The pen like shape makes it easy to hold and the brush makes winged tips so easy and effortless! Just be careful to not make mistakes; this eyeliner is meant to STAY where you put it!

DiorShow mascara perfectly separates my lashes and gives them everything they need.

Garnier Moisture Rescue is something I’ve been swearing by since my friend Ashliegh introduced me sometime two years ago. You put it on before or after your make up and it instantly gets rid of flakes!

All products will come brand new and in their original boxes (I took them out for photography purposes) and I may even include a little something extra!

To Enter This Giveaway:

1. Follow me on BlogLovin’

2. Follow me on Twitter

3. Leave a comment with your email address and twitter handle

Simple as that! Giveaway ends in ONE WEEK (Thursday, March 22nd)!

Good luck to all who enter ❤ And thanks for your support !

President’s Day Sales Haul

Today was President’s Day! And in the land of the retail that, of course, means SALES.

My sister and I spent the day together, finding all the best deals in Providence. Our first stop was Savers thrift store, to see if they had the sheer maxi I had wanted the other day, and they did! Forhalf off!

Next up was the providence place mall, where I picked up some maroon shorts and a tee from PacSun, where everything was 50% off. The top is a yin and yang of skulls, with a cropped midriff and cut out shoulders, holy perfection!

We perused the mall some more, where I picked up some of Dior’s new nail color for spring, Waterlily, and an elongated ring from H&M!

Special thanks to my sister for all of the wonderful gifts ❤
