Hi babydolls! I decided to share with you some of my favorites from June, since I haven’t done one of these in a while. Also, some exciting news, today is the one year anniversary of my blog! I can’t believe how fast time flies, and I would just like to say THANK YOU to everyone that has supported me. Let’s make the next year even better!

Hey sweeties, long time and no posts! I have been SUPER busy with school, finishing up my junior year of college and have not had much time to blog. However, I have a lot things that I would like to share. Stay tuned, mwah!
According to Pantone, Rose Quartz and Serenity are the colors of the season this spring.
Can you say cotton candy? Honestly, I absolutely love it! So, for spring 2016, a great way to represent these two gorgeous shades is by incorporating pieces like the ones shown below into your wardrobe.
Moving along, it is still all about the lips this year, thanks to Miss Kylie Jenner. A great way to pull any look together while sporting the colors Rose Quartz and Serenity, is to add a matte nude lip. It is absolutely gorgeous and subtle, which is perfect for this time of the year.
Also, depending on where you live the weather is starting to get a little warmer. A good beauty hack to keep the hair out of your face and off your shoulders is a cute braid or two. I have been seeing them everywhere, my favorite one is the dutch braid.
Shoes! We can’t forget the shoes, they are everybody’s best friend. Any sandal that laces up, is strappy, or has a chunky platform is on trend. I must say it is a little retro, I definitely get a 90’s vibe from the Platform Ankle Strap Sandals in the picture below. Once again, I absolutely love it and I will definitely be “rocking” a pair once it gets hotter.

At the end of this past summer I decided to read Holly Madison’s new “tell all” book Down the Rabbit Hole. However, school got in the way and I didn’t have as much free time to finish reading it, but that is not to say that this book was not a page turner. I finally finished Madison’s book over winter break, and I found it to be very honest compared to other books written by celebrities, they usually come off very sugar coated if you ask me.
In case you have never heard of Holly Madison, she is a former Playboy Bunny and reality star. She is most known for being Hugh Hefner’s “main girlfriend” on E!’s hit show, The Girls Next Door. After parting ways with Playboy, she later starred in her very own reality show called Holly’s World, which first aired in 2010 on the same network as GND.
In Down the Rabbit Hole, Holly mentions her dreams of becoming an actress and being heavily inspired by Marilyn Monroe movies at a young age. After experiencing some college, she still had those same desires as she did growing up to be a star, but somehow found herself living in the Playboy Mansion. I won’t give anything away, but she said the thing that attracted her to the mansion was the glamorous life that it entailed, or so it seemed. In Madison’s number one seller, she doesn’t leave anything out about her not so pleasent experience with Playboy and the harsh mistreatment from Hefner.
What I liked most about Holly’s book was that it seemed very truthful and raw, there was a lot she could have kept to herself. Also, (myself included) I think many young women are attracted to the Hollywood lifestyle and will do whatever it takes just to get a little taste of that world. I think it was good that she talked about the dark side of her personal experience when living in the mansion, to show that it’s not all “rainbows and sunshine”. Even though, she can come off at times very “woe is me”, I liked her message about finding the strength to get out of a negative situation. Overall, I really did enjoy Down the Rabbit Hole. I definitely would recommend giving it a read if you like celebrity biographies, and are intrigued by the land of Hollywood or the entertainment industry like I am. I have a lot of respect for Holly, and it is nice to see how happy she is with her life now, as a wife and mother!
As I mentioned on social media in November, I am now a Mirina Collections Ambassador. They are a “High Fashion Jewelry House”, located in my favorite place in the world, New York City. I was contacted through my Instagram page to be apart of their company, and all you have to do to become an ambassador or even get a shout out is to purchase one of their “Famous Necklaces”, at a discounted price of course. They are always seeking out bloggers, so if you are interested check out their website at www.mirinacollections.com.
The necklace that I chose to purchase was the “Viola”, in the color black. I paid $44.70 (originally $149.00) for this stunning statement necklace, and the shipping for the piece was absolutely free. My necklace took about four weeks to arrive at my house (at the time their company was based in Miami, FL), the only complaint that I had was that it came in silver instead of black. However, I actually like it in this color better, so I’m kind of happy they made a mistake!
Mirina Collections has so many beautiful jewelry pieces and accessories to choose from. So if you would like to do some online shopping, use my coupon code kellyaxo to receive 20% off.
