Iconemesis and a GIVEAWAY!

My iPhone is spoiled. It has more clothes [cases] than my cat, rides in a warm safe place everywhere, travels alongside me, even has it’s own sleeping spot on my bed; spoiled, yes. My inanimate iPhone is SPOiLED. I recently received this fun Fififawn case from Iconemesis and was immediately smitten. It’s neutral colored, so it goes with many outfits. It showcases a fashionable animal with oversize sunglasses and a cute outfit, just as I am apt to wear. I immediately knew that when I shot the phone case I needed to wear something cute to coincide with it!
This jacket, which I’ve had for years and unfortunately doesn’t get much wear, was perfect. Gold brocade on pink? Feminine and flirty glam.
The case itself is wonderful; a hard shell plastic which protects the phone but keeps it sleek for easy pocketing. Iconemesis offers many many designs, and offers great customer service and quick deliveries.

Now, in the spirit of it being my Birthday Month and the month of gifts and giving I’m keeping the weekly giveaways going! Iconemesis and I are teaming up to offer ONE lucky reader a free iPhone case of their choosing, just like my fifififawn case! There’s even some BRAND NEW designs which are oh so festive and adorable!

Brainy Bath Bomb + GIVEAWAY

20131204-144523.jpg20131203-162224.jpgY’all know I’m not your average girl over here…I’m a little bit classic, and a lot of bit edge, with some seriously punk roots. I love a lot of “darker” things; skulls, zombies, kitschy brain and sugar skull things; among leather and studs alongside lace and jewels. I’m also a big fan of my relaxing self dates, usually involving bubbles and bath bombs. When I first heard about Zombomb, I knew I needed them in my life. Based out of Canada, this small business creates bath bombs for the zombie lover, from brain bombs to heart shaped “bombs”, as well as “rotting flesh” soap (which actually smells sweet and candy-like) and “braiiins” soap. I tried out my first bomb, a “blood bath” brain bomb, smelling ever so sweet and herbal, this past weekend. I poured my wine, ran my bath, and then basked in the relaxation.
20131203-162345.jpg This bath bomb was one of my favorites EVER. And trust me, I’ve tried plenty. I’ve had the perfected mass-produced Lush, as well as the powdery/oily versions of other local small businesses, and even tried some home made DIY bath bombs. But literally nothing has ever been so subtle and perfect as these. They are a perfect blend of oils and powder and scents, leaving the skin smooth without residue. Again, I’ve tried plenty and can’t say enough good things about Zombomb‘s products.

Now that my gushing is over, it’s time to get to the fun part! Zombomb and I have teamed up to give ONE lucky reader one awesome giveaway pack! The set includes a “blood” bomb, a cotton candy “brain bomb” as well as this cool Zombie cameo necklace! A Winner will be chosen ONE WEEK on December 11! zombomb giveawaybath bombs

I love that these initial monogram necklaces are so big right now! A throwback to the 90’s and the ever-so-iconic “Carrie” necklace of the Sex And The City days. I’ve been seeing everyone from Lucy Hale to Lacey of ALaceyPerspective, and everyone everywhere. Pretty much.

RockStarrrr and Giveaway Winner!

I wear these pants I studded myself more often than I showcase on this blog…They’re amazing, and so much fun to just sit here and rub my knees with the palms of my hands.

Shirt by UncleDJ

DIY jeans

J. Simpson boots

Bracelets from Bali, Bloomingdale’s, and Target

Not the best photos, but meh. This shirt was a gift from a pretty awesome DJ friend of mine. We actually met as I discussed the irony and “hipster” fad of his logo, but even I came to wear something with a mustache on it, in support of him and his work.

Anyway, onto what you’ve been waiting for….and the winner to my favorite beauty products giveaway is…..

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 !

We have a Winner!

Congratulations to Tabitha! You’re the winner of my mixed metals giveaway!

Be on the lookout for your email soon 🙂

Mixed Metals & A Giveaway!

I recently met up with Hallie, from Hallie Friedman, an amazingly talented jewelry designer based here in New York, to go over her collection.  I was immediately drawn to the bright colors of her embellished friendship bracelets, full of one of a kind finds that makes each bangle a unique piece to own.  Her earrings are fun, dangly pieces that are eye catching in long hair and her rings are baubles of awesomeness in an array of jewel tons and fun colors.

I was given a gorgeous set of these mixed metal earrings and matching ring to style in a post, so I took the challenge and went with the trend full force.

For the outfit, I kept it simple with an American Apparel dress with my Peter Grimm hat and MIA Girl embellished wedges. The ring and earrings were Hallie Friedman, The cuff and necklace are Forever 21 (omg how much do you LOVE this time-turner-esque necklace? My inner Potter head geeked out and made the impulse purchase). The bracelets are form Express, Target, and TopShop.

Now, for the fun part:  GIVEAWAY !

One of you lucky readers will win the same set of earrings and ring I wore and styled in this post from Hallie Friedman! The winner will be chosen Wednesday, October 12th, exactly one week from today, and will be chosen using a random number generator.

-Make sure you’re following me on BlogLovin here
