This coffee shop was sooo cool, it was pretty hipster..but not in the way that makes you feel like you don't belong.Does that make sense? I got a chai tea latte and it was delicious. I definitely want to go back some time.

Review: Lush

The Sakura bath bomb has a pretty floral scent to it. I really liked the way it smelled, but I think I might have been allergic to something in it. My skin felt a little irritated afterwards. I don't think I will be buying this one again.

I LOVE Fizz Banger! This one smells very citrus-y. It is definitely a bath bomb for the morning time, because it wakes you up. My skin felt so energized after soaking for about a half hour.

bathbomb4 This little guy smells pretty good. It has a scent that is unisex. That may not sound good to you, but I think it is a good thing. I don't mean that it smells like man though. I love that this is called a bubbleroon, like a macaroon. I used half in my bath and it gave off a decent amount of bubbles. I couldn't build bubble castles with it though.
Which Lush products are your favorite?

Stuff I Luff #81


After seeing this shop filled with tortoise cozies, I think I might just need a tortoise.

I still haven't gotten my hands on one of The Mason Bar Company's amazing travel sets.

Ghost Summer Flirt
I am in love with the packaging of this perfume! I wonder if it smells as pretty as it looks.

This self reliant aquarium is so cool! The plants grow on top and keep the water clean and the fish eats the plants.

 Other things I am loving
+This adorably cute video that I cannot stand to watch
+Remember this song from our beloved mystery gang?
+I know I want this and I don't even know for sure what it is yet.

What's inside: August Glam Bag

Well, after cancelling my ipsy subscription forever ago, I'm back on board! I couldn't stay away. Especially since my friend Michal just signed up.

So first off, I am not too crazy about the pouch it came in. Orange is not really my thang. I do like that it is plastic and not cloth, though.

+Jersey Shore Mongongo lip conditioner- I am super picky about chapsticks and lip balms, but I actually do really like this one. It smells amazing and it melts really nice on your lips.
+Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Eyeliner-I love this eyeliner! I am used to liquid pens so this is pretty new for me, but I really love it. The color is a perfect shade of purple.
+Manna Kadar Sheer Glo- I am so not interested in this sort of thing. I tried adding it to my foundation and I don't think it actually did anything. I am going to give it another shot but I hope I do not get more highlighter products like this.
+Klorane Dry Shampoo- I have had this dry shampoo in the past and I remember liking it. I have yet to use any of this can but I am saving it for a greasy hair day.

Overall, I liked this Glambag. I am really excited to see what comes in my next one. Especially since I retook my beauty quiz and I rated each item. Supposedly if you do that they will send items that are more suitable for you. We shall see.

If any of you are subscribed to a beauty subscription, tell me what you got!

Outfit: Tennis Courts

Derek had the idea to take photos at his old high school. I've never taken outfit photos at a tennis court before....thought i'd shake things up a bit.
This purse is so weird, it is layered so that when you unbutton it it has different sections to put your stuff in.
This dress feels like swimsuit material. I think I like it though, it doesn't blow up as much in the wind. It is a more stiff, structured material.
Outfit Details
Dress-H&M (via Poshmark)
Shoes-Vans (via Poshmark)
Purse-H&M (via Poshmark)
Collared shirt-Forever 21
I've spent a lot of time on Poshmark lately.....but I've been getting some awesome deals!
Next time you are out taking photos, try a new location! This was really fun for me.

Stuff I Luff #80

First off, this photo is adorable. Second, matching swimsuits are the best, especially when they have cats on them.  I always wish that little kid's clothes came in my size.

stuff1 This ring is sooo pretty! I love the double band.
This shark week soap from Lush smells AMAZING. Too bad it is sold out online...I gotta get to a store fast before it is sold out completely.

I love the elephant print on these dresses. Next to each other, they look very patriotic.

Other things I am loving
+Kaylah did another found on the beach post!

Diy Ideas

Even though summer is ending, this idea was too cute to share. Maybe next year..

This cut your own bangs diy is suuuper helpful. They share some tips I had no idea about.

I love the look of this ombre tea towel diy. This would be cute for a color pop in wedding decor.

I have never used PicMonkey before, it definitely seems worth checking out after seeing this journalling diy.

This mini suitcase diy is sooo cute! They could hold tiny presents for someone who is going away or even accessories for a doll.

There is nothing better than a collared black and white skater dress. This one looks especially comfy.

These snorkel masks are the coolest! I feel like I would look like a Pikmin.

I love this floral pinafore dress from The Braided Bandit! Hannah always has the cutest style, I think she should keep this one for herself.

I love the simplicity of this cat silhouette necklace.

Outfit: The Pongo Dress

Derek and I headed to Detroit the other day to change his major and wander around a bit. The campus is so pretty. I can't wait to see what it looks like in the fall.
If you get the chance to snag this dress from Forever 21 before it it! It is made so well and is so flattering. Plus, it has some stretch so it is suuuuper comfy.
7eleven iced coffees are my jam. I like to mix the two flavors. If you don't like icky sweet iced coffee, then stay away.

Guest Post//Precious' Outfit and Thrifting Tips

Today, I am handing my blog over to Precious so you all can see how flippin cute she is. Her blog recently became one of my daily reads. Her outfits are all so adorable and unique. She photographs them so well too.
Dress: Ruche
Cardigan: Ruche 
Purse: Forever 21
Necklace: Ruche
Shoes: Thrifted
Hey there cute readers of Chloe's blog! I am Precious of Ensemble Deux! Here are some photos of a fun day walking around the neighborhood. I absolutely love thrifting and finding treasures for a low price! I promised my readers that I would share with them my thrifting secrets. 

Here's a few tips for finding yourself the perfect piece:

1. Have lots of time and patience.
2. Have a plan of what you are looking for.
3. Start from one area and work your way through the store in an orderly fashion. 
4. Keep an open mind. Sometimes something may look a certain way on the hanger but differently on you. 
5. Don't just limit yourself to the women's section. Sometimes the little girls or boys section may have treasures.

Whatever you do take your time and have fun! That has always worked for me!

Hope this is helpful on your next trip to the thrift store!

A couple of my coworkers and I went to a street fair the other day. I ate a gigantic corn dog and drank a mango pina colada smoothie. Then we listened to a local band and bought these cute ribbon crowns.

DIY Ideas

I absolutely love this idea. I have said before that fake taxidermy really appeals to me for some reason.

These bottle vases are just the cutest. Diys like this make me want to have a party.

I have never seen a diy like this one before. I always thought those food domes looked so fancy.

I am dying over this ice cream elbow patch diy!! I neeed to make this pronto!

This address label diy is so genius!
