Hanna's Evans Scarlett & Jo Giveaway

So I have something different to post today..... As well as my love/obsession for all things makeup and Polish related, I am obsessed with Fashion!!! I have recently (well last year) found some lovely ladies with blogs geared towards fashion, not just any fashion but PLUS sized fashion!!! (Links to their pages at the end of post) Through their posts and style ideas it has given me more faith in the fact that, yeah I may be plus sized but I can still rock those green skinny leg jeans, or that cute dress with the bird print.... or whatever I choose to wear!!! From reading their blog posts I have stepped outside of my comfort zones or thoughts of fashion and it has been... AWESOME!!!

NOW.... on to the reason for this blog post, one of the ladies that I follow has come to an Anniversary on her blog and is having a few giveaways. And well the one I'm posting about happens to be giving you 100 (euro) gift-voucher for the Evans Scarlett & Jo Collection!!! I know (have looked at) about this site from reading the ladies blog post but have yet to purchase anything from them. So of course I had to enter Hanna's Giveaway from The Wardrobe Challenge.

So in order to enter this giveaway you have to style an outfit on Polyvore, using one of the pieces from the Scarlett & Jo Collection, found here.  You need to also share your outfit with her and tell her where you might wear it to.

Night Out

Night Out by lizgreen-79 featuring h&m

I chose the Animal Print Lace Yolk top, I paired it with dark skinny leg jeans and a red jacket. For the rest, I chose a pair of Sam Edelman shoes, a purse with a British Flag (kind of a nod to Hanna & Evans), some blue accents with the necklace, bracelet and ring. I also picked a spiked ring and studded mani to tie into the shoes. For hair, a messy updo and for makeup a simple cat eye with red lips.

So I'm thinking this would be a good outfit for a night out with the girls or that special someone. What do you think of my styling??? Would you wear this???

Hope you enjoyed this post :)
XOXO...... Liz :)

12 Days of Christmas: Day 8 Ornaments

I can't believe we are on day 8 or that Christmas is less then a week away!!!! I finally got all my shopping done just need to wrap them LOL!!! So Day 8 is Ornaments and I knew what I wanted to do from the start :) whewww hahaha

Again I have painted my moms nails for this challenge. I went to Sally's this past Saturday and picked up one of their Color Club Christmas mini polish sets. My mom is becoming almost...almost.... haha as bad as me, she loveddd the red and the green in the set and asked if I could paint her nails with them. She also didn't want to take off her snowmen mani, so I promised I would paint a snowman on this mani too :)

This was fairly easy, the free hand is coming to me a lot easier :) Thankfully.... the only problem was trying to change up the design on each ornament!!! I think they turned out really cute thou. My mom likes them so that's all that matters.... Quoting her "They're cuter then my other ones... they're just to damn cute!!!" haha I love my mom :)

Colors used are:
  • Color Club Berry & Bright
  • Color Club Ho Ho Holly
  • Color Club Disco Nap
  • Sinful Colors Snow me White
  • L.A. Colors Art Deco in Black
  • Zoya Mimi
  • Essie Aruba Blue
  • Essie Orange, It's Obvious
  • Revlon Stunning

Well I hope everyone is doing okay and enjoying this time of the year!!! Please make sure to check out all the others participating in this challenge. And Thanks to the lovely girls who are holding this challenge,  Kristine @ Pink & Polished and Lorene @ Over Polished Nails !!!!!

12 Days of Christmas: Day 7 Snowflakes

So today is day 6... Snowflakes!!! I haven't seen an actual snowflake seen I was a little kid :( after years of always living somewhere where it had actual seasons, and places that snowed, we moved to Texas around my age of 12 and I haven't seen snow since!!!

Anyway on to my nails :) I initially had wanted to do my nails in Essie Aruba Blue but I have seen a lot of blue manicures with snowflakes so I chose to go PURPLE!!! With my lovely new CG Creative Fantasy from their new Cirque Du Soleil line. I absolutely LOVE this color!!!! It doesn't show thru enough with the glitter and snowflakes but it is so pretty!!!

So the snowflakes were fairly easy enough to paint on with the striper nail polish. They turned out pretty cool, a lil thick or fluffy but I like them :)

Colors used are
  • CG Creative Fantasy
  • Zoya Mimi
  • Revlon Stunning
  • L.A. Colors Art Deco in White
  • L.A. Colors Art Deco in Silver Glitter

All in all I'm pretty happy with this mani :) Hope you all did or still are enjoying your weekend....Its almost Christmas.... can't believe that!!!! Make sure you check out all the other great bloggers who are participating in the challenge and also be sure to check the 2 lovelies who created this for us all, Kristine @ Pink & Polished and Lorene @ Over Polished Nails !!!!!

XOXO..... Liz :) ;
