Style Icon: Jessica Alba

I love Jessica Albas style. She dresses so cute! I would wear almost anything that she wears! Not only does she dress great but I also have always loved her many different hairstyles and any makeup she wears looks good because her face is flawless! The photo of her in the pink t-shirt and wig is her dressed as Dora The Explora for Halloween. so cute.

Thursday, July 8, 2010 Haul & Review

I found just by shopping around about a week ago. It is VERY similar to and I actually think it might be a partner company because the checkout & confirmation emails are exactly the same. I was just browsing shirts from 6pm and I noticed a lot of their "last season" sort of plaid shirts were really inexpensive compared to if I were to buy them at a department store. I bought a Lucky brand "Tyler" Plaid shirt @ $27.80 and a Hurley "Wilson" Plaid shirt for $17.60 . I thought that was A DEAL. I got a LARGE in the Lucky Brand shirt because it said 100% cotton and I have a long torso and long arms. Now that I see it I will definitely need to shrink it. Or have my mom take it in around the waist. I don't know if that is even possible. The Lucky Brand one is definitely my favorite of the two. The Hurley one is also cute, it's just more plain & simple. And for only $17 I had to get it!! It is a MEDIUM and it fits better in the arms than the Lucky Brand one but the waist is quite "flowy". lol. I love these type of shirts though. You can dress them up or down. And they are SUPER comfortable. The Hurley one is very very thin though! I'm pretty impressed with's prices. Although, when I went to open the Hurley shirt the clar bag it was in looks like it was savagely ripped open by someone before me! haha. That's really my only complaint.

What I think about "Grown Ups"

I saw "Grown Ups" the movie about a week ago and I've decided to do a little review for those of you who haven't seen it and are contemplating seeing it...

Well OVERALL I would give it a 5/10 stars. Most definitely not Adam Sandlers best movie. He was awesome when he was young. Happy Gilmore is one of my all time favorite movies. This was a NICE movie though with a few "LOL" funny parts. It just seemed VERY VERY scripted. Maybe more of a family type movie ...not the funniest thing in the world. Not worth $10 buckaroo's to see it in the theatre! I wanted to make this short and sweet because nobody wants to read a 10 page in depth review of a movie... Hopefully this helps someone! If you have seen it let me know how you liked it! Oh p.s if you are a guy you will be drooling over Salma Hayek in this movie and if you are a girl you will instantly want to put your popcorn down and go for a run. She looks ridiculously fit/perfect !

Sam Edelman Sandals Fashion Review

I've been eyeing these Sam Edelman Sandals for a few months now and I finally bought them! The are called Sam Edelman 'Gigi' sandals. I bought them at which is one of my favorite websites for shopping. I bought these online Webnesday night and they arrived at my door Friday morning! Zappos also has FREE shipping and FREE returns. I am definitely keeping these babies! They are extremely comfortable too. I have a pair of sandals similar to these from Top Shop and they start hurting my feet instantly. But these 'Gigi' sandals are so squishy and cushiony on the bottom. I was so surprised! I can definitely tell they ARE worth the $49 I paid for them because the quality is amazing. Kim Kardashian has the leopard pair and Vanessa Hudgens has the black leather ones!

I also bought a pair of Roxy 'Manchester' sneakers in "black/pewter". I kept the tag on them because I am still not 100% sure I will be keeping these. I have a pair of black vans that are pretty similar. But they ARE cute. And comfortable as well. In real life they look less shimmery.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse Review

Last night I saw the newest Twilight film, Eclipse. I have only read the first book of the series called Twilight. I thought it was a great book, but when I saw the movie Twilight I was VERY disappointed. It was the most corny, awkward, unbearable thing to watch! I was embarrassed for the movie hahaha. The acting was horrible, but I thought Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) was SOOO gorgeous is didn't even matter! It was fun to see Twilight though, even though it was terrible, just to see how the characters would be portrayed and what certain things described in the book would look like. For instance, Edwards sparkling skin when he goes in the sun. I began reading New Moon but I was just way too bored with it so I stopped in the beginning. But I did see the New Moon Movie. I thought it was an upgrade from Twilight but still not great. I guess that is what you have to expect from a story about vampires and wolves. Overall I would have to give Eclipse a 6/10 stars. If you didn't read any of the Twilight Saga books and you don't have any interest in romance/vampires/wolves (LOL) then this is NOT the movie for you. The acting has gotten SO SO SO much better compared to Twilight but still it just wasn't "OMG SO GOOD". I would say...if you've seen the first two you might as well go and see Eclipse but wasn't worth $10 bucks!

Comment below if you have seen it and tell me what YOU thought of it! :-)
