January Favorites

I’m loving all of the OOTD photos y’all have been emailing me (styledbysteph@aol.com)! I’ll be sure to post one soon! :)

1) DISfunkshion Magazine

disfunkshion magazine, january favorites, style, fashion, styledbysteph96, best fashion magsSubscribe here.

I had never heard of this magazine until recently, but it’s amazing. It looks kind of homeade and has very artsy photography. All of my friends loved it as well and I even looked over and saw my dad looking at some of the photography. It is somewhat similar to Company Magazine (that I featured in my August favorites article) although it has more photography and Company has more articles.

2) How to Look Expensive by Andrea Pomerantz Lustig

$14.50 How to Look Expensive: A Beauty Editor’s Secrets to Getting Gorgeous without Breaking the Bank Amazon

This book had great tips on how to look amazing on a budget. My favorite part is that it has a huge section after each chapter with her favorite drugstore dupes. I have tried out some of the products she mentioned and loved all of them. She is the Editor in Chief for Glamour Magazine so she has a ton of experience with different beauty products. I’m definitely going to reread it next time I need new makeup. Continue Reading

Amazon,$5.89

As a college student making the most of space is crucial. I love these to hang up all of my skirts and pants; they save so much room!

If you are a pack-rat like me and have a hard time deciding what items you should keep and which ones you should get rid of try turning all of your hangers the wrong direction and whenever you wear an item turn it the right direction. After a year (or whatever time period you choose) get rid of any items that are still facing backwards.

Also, a lot of clothes don’t fit me right so I end up with a lot of items I like but that need altering so now is the perfect time to get that done! I’m going to try to avoid buying clothes that need altering this year unless they are for a special event but that is easier said than done since I am so petite. Continue Reading

October Favorites

 

1) ELF Healthy Glow Bronzer in Sun Kissed

elf bronzer, beauty review, styledbysteph96  Purchase it here.  I like to use this to contour, but I like it even more as a eyeshadow. I think the color shows up a lot better on your eyes and makes your eyes really sparkle. It’s not too orange for a bronzer either. Some reviews online said the color didn’t show up enough, but I think it’s perfect for a more natural look.  Click here to see my original haul and review. Continue Reading
