Selena Gomez Inspired Look

Style ThiefIf you’ve been following LoveNiki for awhile, you know how much I love Selena Gomez. And after her attending her concert last week (thanks to the best bf ever!), I realized that we believe in and stand for a lot of the same things. I can only imagine the pressure she is under to be skinnier, sexier, and  cooler but she doesn’t seem to care. She embraces who she is and  encourages others to do the same.

I spotted her geek crop top on her instagram and thought she looked effortlessly cool in it. So I looked around for one but I also realized that it’s actually getting a little chilly around here so maybe a warmer option would be a good idea. Lol.

Geek GirlNot only was I able to find a cute geek sweater from Kiki La’Rue (find it here) I also learned what Kiki La’Rue stands for. They are a company who believe in embracing who you are. If you check out their instagram @ShopKikiLaRue you’ll see how they offer pieces for many different shapes & sizes and that their models are real women who are both diverse and beautiful.

Let me know what you think of this geek chic sweater! And I’m always looking for looks to recreate so feel free to leave links to images in the comment section!

Get Rachel Bilson’s Casual Look!

Rachel Bilson styleIf I had a giant bank account, recreating looks would be a cake walk. But this is real life and you’ve got to work with what you’ve got!

To create this look on yourself focus more on the outfit as a whole rather than the details. You’ll need: a striped shirt, a (fedora) hat, coat/jacket/blazer, and jeans. The items don’t have to be identical just similar. And you can switch up the footwear to whatever you like. Add a heel, cute flats, or even your fav pair of boots.

Thanksgiving Blog Link Up!

SweaterTurkey time is almost upon us! It’s a lovely holiday that feeds the soul ….and my stuffing loving tummy. Lol. For this blog link up I asked a few fellow bloggers to share a Thanksgiving dinner outfit idea. They did a great job so be sure to stop by their blogs and check out their outfits! (Links at the end of this post)

For my outfit I wanted a somewhat dressy look but nothing overly formal. I’ll be honest, my sweater is what makes this outfit work. It adds that cozy holiday touch to a simple dress. Plus, it’s nice & warm :) You can check it out here at Kiki La’Rue or you can browse their other lovely coats  HERE. I’m sure you’ll find something you like on their site!

Affordable Beauty Products You Must Try

Beauty Products

1. Goody Ouchless Ribbon Elastics| 2. Listerine Whitening Restoring Mouthwash|3. Secret Outlast Deodorant| 4. TRESemmé Heat Tamer Protective Spray

Goooood morning! I know most ‘must have’ lists include designer bags and expensive clothes but I wanted to share some great products that are affordable & can improve the rest of your week!

The ribbon elastics feel so much better than the basic elastic hair bands. They don’t pull or tug while you wear them. They do cost a little more but not by much.

The Listerine mouthwash is a new addition to my teeth cleaning routine but it’s exactly what I needed. My teeth are cavity prone and not as white as they could be thanks to my daily cup of jo. I’ve tried whitening strips before but they left my teeth super sensitive and did nothing to help my enamel.

48 hour deodorant is aaaammmmaaaazzzziiiing. No, I don’t go days without reapplying and I’m not exceptionally smelly Lol but I’m usually out of the house for long periods of time doing a million different things. This stuff lasts through it all. And it’s so much better than having to carry a deodorant around with you. I shove enough stuff in my purse so the less I have to add, the better.

I stopped buying heat tamer to save a few dollars and my ends started splitting and my hair became rough and dry. This is not the area to make budget cuts in! Lesson learned.

These basic products will definitely improve your week!Plus you can get it all for under $20, maybe even under $15 if you find a sale. A new deodorant may not be as chic as that handbag you’ve been eyeing but when the holidays come around and your rushing  from one gathering to the next, you’ll be glad you spent a few dollars on some of the little things.

New Shop Open!

I am so happy to share my new online boutique with you!

I can’t wait to hear your thoughts <3

My Skincare Secret: Enza Essentials

Enza Essentials

After my birthday back in September, I became more aware of the signs of aging on my face. I’m only 25 but you can see the little wrinkles forming and a bit of dullness setting in.

Up MovieOne day, after a long & full life, I’ll be much more okay with looking like the cute grandma from the Up Lol but I’m suppose to be in my prime right now! The universe must have also had a hard time looking at me because it sent a wonderful company my way, Enza Essentials.

Most products seem great initially so I wanted to test my new skincare kit out for a couple weeks and give you girls the best possible review.

Skincare

I can sum up my thoughts in two words, it works!  I have nothing to gain from giving you a phony story about how great this stuff, trust me. Enza Essentials will provide you with the results you’re looking for.

My skin tone is more even and my fine lines are being softened and erased with each wash. And for the occasional breakout, I’ve been using their spot extractor which can significantly reduce blemishes in a day or two. That impressed me. Once a blemish shows up, I normally have to wait a week or two before it disappears.

Skincare Products

I’m using Enza’s extraction system  but they can help you find the right system for your skin. I highly recommend this skincare line (which was created by a plastic surgeon!) to anyone looking to get clear, youthful, and healthy looking skin. If you’ve been searching for products and have been trying to figure out what works, take a chance on Enza, you won’t regret it!

Let me know if you have any questions or want to know more about my experience with Enza Essentials!
