Five Last Minute Gifts For Your Girlfriend or Bestfriend

Hello love bugs,

Today I will be making an easy to follow guide for men, to get the perfect last minute (rolls eyes) gift for his special lady. First, I would not recommend buying anything online due to the holiday shipping schedule and how tragic USPS is when it comes to getting packages to you on time for Christmas. The only place I would recommend online shopping if you absolutely must is Amazon. Amazon is amazing when it comes to shipping but you have to order with Amazon make sure you do it ASAP. Second, If you decide to hit up your local mall or outlet mall for holiday shopping beware, it is a jungle with hundreds of last minute holiday lions, but the best time to hit the mall if your going shopping for gifts and you don't want to be there all day is AS SOON AS THE MALL OPENS. I put extra emphasis on that because, during this time 11 is too late, the lions are already out and ready to eat whoever gets in their way. So definitely check your local malls holiday schedule to make sure you're their five minutes before opening.

Holiday Shopping List 

1. A gift card to her favorite place, her favorite candy, and a card confessing your undying love for her.

But make sure it looks like it's heart felt and you took time on it. I found this cute DIY gift card holder on http://cutesycrafts.com that is easy to make and looks like you actually care - http://bit.do/giftcardholder. (even though I know you don't because you're getting her a last minute gift)

2.Lush Gift Basket

 This is the easiest gift idea ever and girls love lush products! Lush actually has pre wrapped gifts, so you can go in to any lush store, pick your favorite gift package and get it right there. No need to worry about the shipping time or wrapping because it's all right at the Lush store at your local mall.

3. A Sephora Gift Set

 This is probably going to be your girls favorite gift because, Girls love Sephora (Drake voice) and makeup in general. Sephora carries over 500 gift sets for women so you'll have plenty to choose from, ranging from $10 to $600 dollars.

4.Louis Vuitton Alma BB.

If you have money to blow on significant other than I would definitely go with a Louis Vuitton Alma BB. The Alma BB retails for 1200 dollars and it is extremely on trend. It goes with everything and it's the perfect Christmas gift! Your lady will automatically have something to brag about to her girlfriends after Christmas. P.S. You'll definitely be winning with your lady after this one. ;)

5. Tiffany & Co Twist Knot Pendant

The last gift on this list is the Tiffany Twist Knot Pendant, it's easily accessible since there is a Tiffany store at every major mall in the country and ITS TIFFANY. It retails for $135 and it's sterling silver. This blue box will definitely make your lady happy this holiday season.

Update

Hey lovebugs,

I've really been stressed out about the photo quality of some of the images I have on my blog so I deleted a lot of content off of my blog. But, I'm going to start carrying my digital camera with me so I can always get blog ready content. P.S. I posted 2 new videos on my YouTube channel and I'm doing a review on one of the Kylie Cosmetics holiday bundles soon! http://bit.do/queenshirineyt

Janet Jackson 90's inspired look

Hello love bugs,

I’m finally getting back into the swing of blogging again and I’m excited for a few simple reasons. One, because I’m gonna be sharing a lot more of my looks now. And two, I get to do what I went to fashion school for! So new blog posts will be up weekly, thank you so much for keeping up with me as I reach all of my dreams and goals.

Okay, now on to the outfit! I’m wearing a vintage 90's inspired look, the 90's is my favorite style era if you didn't know!
The blazer and pants are from my friend Valine Saloman from her new online boutique www.silhovette.com. I participated in her fashion show displaying her Silhovette Vintage line and this outfit gave me such Janet Jackson vibes from Poetic Justice! I obviously had to add my own style with my vibrant indigo pumps from Vince Camuto, a Velvet Choker from and a bralette from VS Pink,  because why not?! My girl Taylor (featured in the last photo) is wearing a blazer and skirt from Silhovette and mesh boots from ego official!
You guys can shop the look (and find similar pieces for things that are sold out) at the bottom of this post!

Being a shopaholic

Hey Queens,

Today I come to you guys with a serious topic, my shopping addiction. Ever since I could remember I've been in love with the fabrics and textiles of different pieces on the fashion market. But, I could never actually get every little thing I wanted because I didn't have a direct source of income besides my parents and little part time jobs. Until, my 18th birthday when I finally found a full time job that works with my school career.. Blogging and Depop. Obviously you guys know how blogging works, I'm talking to you guys right now from my blog. Depop however, allowed me to sell clothing I no longer wore for cash. This was easy, my parents bought me clothing, I would wear said clothing once or twice, and then I would sell it online. Now, depop wasn't my first rodeo.... I've been selling things online since Myspace and Ebay days.... since I was around 11 years old. (side note) I'm a millennial, technology is my best friend. Anyway, once Depop and Blogging entered my life I saved my money and bought my first high end designer bag, and no I'm not talking about Coach, Michael Kors, or the dreadful Dooney and Bourke.. I bought a second hand Louis Vuitton speedy from fashion phile that I still have today. But basically ever since then I feel like every day I need to buy something or I feel empty inside. I get a certain feeling of fulfillment every time I get something new... I'll keep you guys updated on my shopaholic struggles if you want.

See you soon.
Xoxo, Shirine Rouhi

Summer 2016 Beauty Favorites

Hey Queens,






I know I've been MIA for a while... but I've been working really hard on improving my YouTube channel, so if you're not caught up on my recent video's check them out! But, today I'm going to be talking to you guys about my Summer beauty favorites. So, if you haven't seen my recent videos I recently talked about how after 6 years of wearing makeup and thinking my skin way dry or combination, I was recently told I actually have oily skin............ This was a complete shock to me because for at least 6 years I've been buying makeup for people with dry skin.



Now that I know my true skin type I have some new beauty favorites that are perfect for this hot & humid Summer here in Florida.



1. Nyx Cosmetics - Angel Veil Primer : this stuff is amazing, it blurs out my acne and makes my skin appear so much smoother. Thank you Jackie Aina for putting me on!

2. Clinique - Stay Matte Foundation : I love this foundation so much, it kept my face matte for 6 hours in Florida heat... that never happens!
3.Nyx Cosmetics - Peanut Brittle butter gloss : This is the perfect gloss for any makeup look during the summer, it's not sticky either.
4.Tarte - Tartelette in Bloom Clay Eyeshadow Palette: This is a great palette for anyone that loves neutral colors for the summer. It has a mix of glitter shadows and mattes so this is going to be a staple for me all year long. Since they are clay eyeshadows they stay on all day, through sweat and hot weather.
5.Skin Fix Cosmetics - Orange Lip Balm: I love fruity scents during the summer time and this lip balm is everything and more. It's 100% natural ( no parabens or any of the crappy stuff) and it keeps your lips looking good!

I hope you guys enjoyed my summer beauty favorites, I will go in depth on these products when I get back from California!

Limecrime vs Kylie Cosmetics

Hey Queens,

In April I did swatches of Kylie Cosmetics liquid lippies as well as some Limecrime Velvetines. In my most recent Limecrime swatch video I said that I thought both liquid lipsticks were similar formulas the only difference is the Velvetines are more satin than the matte Kylie Cosmetics liquid lipsticks. I'm pretty positive that if KC ever launched a satin liquid lipstick it would be exactly like LC's formula, but I guess we'll just have to wait and see on that. The color variety of Kylie Cosmetics is extremely wide but nowhere near as wide as the Limecrime Velvetines. Check out both of my videos below and let me know what you think about my observations on both.

Choosing a new college...

Hey Queens,

So as most of you know I recently graduated with my Associates degree in Fashion Merchandising at MIU (If you want a video on my complete review of the school let me know). I know that I want to get my bachelors degree but I'm still not 100% on what I want it in. I've been thinking about transferring in the fall to FSU or a fashion school in New York to finish my bachelors degree in merchandising in 2018. But I've also been thinking about applying to the school that my boyfriend goes to so we don't have to do long distance anymore.... because ldr's are really difficult. But, then I was thinking about myself and I realized that the only reason I didn't go to school in NYC for merchandising is because of my relationship... Recently I've been pretty down about school. Sure moving to Miami and living with roommates was an important life lesson  (I'll get more into this in a storytime video) but, it wasn't NY.  I'm actually from NY, born and raised, well I moved to Florida at 14 but still. I'm a valley girl from Long Island, lol. The only two places I could ever see myself living today is NY or California, the south just is not for me.

What I'm trying to say is even if you love someone so much, don't put for dreams aside for anyone. Sure I'm applying to the school my boyfriend goes to but I'm honestly only applying as a backup plan if I don't get into the schools I want to go to in NYC. I love my boyfriend so much, but if we don't work out I completely understand... That'll probably be God saying that this isn't the right time for us... remember we're both only in our 20's.... But, all I know is I'm going to try my very best to go to school in NYC this fall and continue to follow my dreams.

I really hope this helped someone struggling with a situation similar to this.

See you soon.
Xoxo, Queen Shirine

Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kit Obsessed?

Hey Queens,

Ever since Kylie Jenner launched her cosmetic line at the end of 2015 and ever since then it has been extremely hard for makeup enthusiast around the world to get there hands on a lipkit. Luckily I managed to get my hands on 6 out of the 8 Kylie lipkits and I did a swatch video. If you're interested in knowing about the feel on the lips, color pay off, or simply "are they worth it," make sure you check out my video! I also managed to get my hands on her newest launch GLOSSES, which she made an entire mini movie for. I will be doing a swatch and detailed video on those sometime soon. I also have a giveaway on some of her products coming soon, so make sure you keep up with my videos and blog posts for more details on that.


See you soon.
