Okay, onto the outfit!
My dress is from H&M
My bow and glasses are from Claire's
My shoes are from Christian Siriano
And although my legs are cut off, I'm wearing black tights

That's all! It was a really beautiful day today, so that motivated me to do an OOTD today :)

Maybelline's Baby Lips: REVIEW

Hello everyone! Sorry for my lack of activity these past few days, my schoolwork has been taking over my life. And, as I've probably said before, I'm the biggest procrastinator there is.

With all that aside, I was feeling in the mood to review something. Maybelline's Baby Lips (it's just a tinted lip balm- don't let it fool you) has been becoming quite popular in my little circle of friends. I decided to pick myself up one and see what I thought of it. I should probably note that only of the Baby Lips in the picture is mine, the rest are my sister's. She lent them to me without knowing. ;)

Overall, I think Baby Lips is a pretty great product. Besides from smelling amazing and the adorable packaging, (which usually sells me on everything) it works fairly well too. At first, I thought it was going to have a better color payoff, but then I realized it was a TINTED lipbalm. So, the bright red that I bought was actually more of a vibrant redish-pinkish color. Nevertheless, it's still looks really nice on the lips.

I don't know about you, but every once in a while my lips go into a crazy rampage where anything I put onto them, doesn't even stick. And with that in mind, I was actually kind of hesitant about trying this because only a few lip balms work well for me. I was quite surprised to find that this product DOES work nicely, you just have to apply a bit more than usual. All of Maybelline's lip products always have the tendency to not stick too well on my lips. Baby Lips does do that, but not like the regular lip sticks do.

To sum it up, I'd rate Maybelline's Baby Lips a 7 out of 10. Hey, and nothing beats that it's color plus a lip balm!

Okay, that's all. I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week. Toodles. xoxo

iOS 7 Review

Hello everyone! Gee, it's been a while! I've had family in town that only come around once a year, and my schoolwork has been especially hectic. But hey, look on the bright side, I'm back! :)

So, if you live under a rock, (or don't have an iPhone) you must've seem that iOS 7 was released. And the world somehow exploded. Since it's becoming a little trend to review this software update, I decided to jump on the bandwagon. Sorry if you're sick of these...

Okay, so iOS 7 is the newest software Apple just released this past Wednesday for the iPhone. It changed everything, from the design to the way things work. It's pretty big, and I think my smart phone is officially smarter than I am. But I still managed to figure it out in a sitting. Some things I actually really like, whereas some things I'm just a bit borderline about. But I'll probably end up liking them in a while. For now though, I'm just gonna tell you about my pros and cons on the iOS 7....

-New design to everything 
-Everything looks sleek and clean
-iTunes radio (this is basically like Pandora, but with less ads...that's just my opinion:)
-New multitasking area (it not only shows the apps you were recently on, but a screenshot. Ooooo.)
-New control center (you can basically control EVERYTHING on this. It pretty cool)
-Photo filters (Instragram will be dead within a matter of months.)
-New ringtones and textones (I was getting sick of the old ones)

-Took a while to download
-Watch out for bugs! (you can work thru them as you get used to the update)
-Built-in apps have new icons (kind of confusing...)

That's all guys! I'll get back on a regular posting scheadule now:)
Have a great week!

1. Draw
2. Dance to music like an idiot
3. Read a book
4. Find some DIYs
5. Experiment new makeup looks
6. Try your hand at knitting (it's a hit or miss, believe me)
7. Channel your inner chef or baker
8. Make greeting cards
9. Clean your house
10. Plan a girl's night out with your BFFs
11. Find some new music
12. Paint your nails
13. Look for new YouTubers to subscribe to
14. Volunteer at a local charity
15. Go on an urban hike
16. Build a fort
17. Do some online shopping

19. Call up an old friend
20. Start up a Polyvore account

That's all I could come up with! Next time I'm bored, I'm so coming back to this list.

And as I say at the end of every post, I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week. Toodles. 

Always Remember 9/11

OOTD- September 11, 2013

Hello my blog friends! Welcome back to my daily OOTD. Today, my uncle came into towm, so I didn't have time to go outside and take a proper picture, so I apologize for the outfit selfie. I've got family coming into town for the next few days, so I might get a little behind on posting :)

As you can probably see, I've got no makeup on and my hair is a bit messed up. Oh well. Anyways, my top is from TJ Maxx, (gotta love that place) my jeans that I rolled up are from Old Navy, and I've got my favorite pair of Sperries on; my navy blue plaid ones. 

And I'm sorry for the horrible background. My sheets are quite childish because my other ones were in the wash:) Maybe sometime in the future, I'd do a bedroom 'tour' if you'd like me to. I'm actually planning on re-doing my room in January so I'm quite looking forward to that!

That's all for this OOTD. Come back tomorrow for another one! I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week. <3

Pray for those who lost loved ones in 9/11.

Mary's Fall Must-Haves

Hello, and welcome (or welcome back) to my blog! Today is the first day of my OOTD and a 'real post' schedule, and I'm going to try and keep it going as long as possible. This is assuming that I don't get plucked off the face of the earth by aliens, or the Mayans don't predict another doomsday. :)

Today's post is all about my fall must-haves. Since fall is my absolute FAVORITE season, I'll talk about it waaaaaaay too much during this season and the months leading up to it. You'll notice in the future how I care nothing for summer. Except for the fact that no one expects anything from me. I like that part.

Onto the list...

-cozy sweaters
-skinny jeans
-curling wand
-fall nail polish
-oversized cardigans
-patterned & chunky scarves
-utility jackets knew this one was coming

I hope you all can take some inspiration, if any, from this list.
I just hope I'm not the only one this excited about fall.

Have a wonder-fall (see what I did there?) day, my loves. 

OOTD- September 10, 2013

Hello everyone! So, late last night, I sprouted the bright idea to do an OOTD every day possible on this blog! And along with one of those, I'll put up a regular post every day as well:)

Here's my outfit...


My top (actually a romper) is from Jessica Simpson's clothing line. My blue high-low skirt is from TJ Maxx. And my sandals (although not in the shot) are from Maurice's.

I apologize for the weird bit of sunlight on my face, I took these pictures when there was no shade whatsoever in the side yard and no place seemed better to take a picture than by a tree. As time goes on, my OOTDs will become much more....'professional-y'

Anyways, thank you so very much for reading this post. And thank you to my mother for taking these photos, and putting up with my pickiness :)

Mary's Music Playlist: September

Hello everyone! So, this is my first 'official' blog post. I've been brainstorming a lot of blog post ideas, and this one is my favorite I came up with. I absolutely love listening and dancing (I'm a dancer) to music, so I decided to share my music playlist for this month! Every month, I like to make a new playlist.  I think it's just fun to change up my music every month :)

Also, I figured out this website and I changed my profile picture. I'm going to try and include some pictures in each of my posts, I think they make it more fun. The next thing I'm going to try and figure out is how to format my blog! If you have any tips on that, leave a comment! Anyways, onto the real reason for this post...

-American Girl by Bonnie McKee
-Anything Could Happen by Ellie Goulding
-The Fall Song by Bridgit Mendler
-Love Somebody by Maroon 5
-Pass Me By by R5
-Still Into You by Paramore
-Lost In Love by Big Time Rush ft. Jake Miller
-Everything Has Changed by Taylor Swift ft. Ed Sheeran
-Brave by Sara Bareilles
-Miss Movin' On by Fifth Harmony
-How To Be A Heartbreaker by Marina and the Diamonds
-Best Song Ever by One Direction
-Haunted by Taylor Swift

That's it! I hope you all have a great week at school, work, or wherever you may be!
Goodbye xoxo

Hello, and welcome. I should probably introduce myself....

Well, my name is Mary. I created this blog as a place where I can share my fashion advice, tips, and tricks. Ever since I was little, I've loved dressing up and picking out clothes. Now, I'm still young, but I would love to have a career in fashion or cosmetics someday. A girl can only dream, right? (EDIT: Who am I kidding?! I hate fashion).

So, I'm going to post on here every so often. I've always wanted to have a blog where I can share with a small group of people my thoughts.

If you're ever interested, you can go check out my Polyvore. If you don't know what that is, Polyvore is a website where you can piece together outfits and share them with people. It's sort of like a blog, but less 'talky'. (If you even get what I mean) My username is @marymoulin.

Oh, and above? That's a little picture of me. Don't worry, I don't smile like that in real life. Once I get the hang of this website, I'll probably put up a more 'attractive' profile pic. For now, just deal with this one. 

Okay, that's all of my introduction to you all. If you're feeling adventurous, would you pretty please press that follow button? It would totally make my day.

I'll talk to you all later with a new blog post. xoxo
