Accessories always make an outfit go from blah to huzzah. So when I recently had the opportunity to work with a Minnesotan Paparazzi Jewelry consultant, Krystle Tuma, I was so excited to see what she had for me. And it was obviously great, because it made the cut to be on the site, right? So keep reading, this is about to get really good.
Impatient readers: If you want to read more before I continue, you can check out Krystle’s fun Facebook page here to see what she’s been up to: http://www.facebook.com/5dollardiva
The Concept Behind Paparazzi Jewelry
We all love to wear jewelry to add that extra glam to your outfit, but I think we can all agree that we don’t like the price tag that usually comes with that jewelry! Even on sale, jewelry can be so expensive! So the main concept at Paparazzi is that everything costs $5. No, you didn’t hear that wrong, everything really only costs you $5! Not only that, but their stuff is cute!! You can host a party at your house and invite your friends to come check out affordable fashion jewelry! Make some appetizers, put on some fun music and make it a night!
The Jewelry Line-up
So I suppose you’re thinking, “If that stuff is only $5, I bet it’s not that cute.” Wrong. You’re so wrong. Their stuff is adorable! Here are a few items that I picked from their site, just to give you a taste of what they have to offer…
Now are you intrigued? I knew you would be. Each of the things that you see in that image above is only $5. I couldn’t believe it either! Now, I got to try out a few items from Krystle and here are the items that I picked from their huge inventory:
These necklaces both came with their own sets of earrings as well! So they matched each other, and they looked fab!! Plus, they had the cutest ring that I wanted to try out as well. It would be so cute for any fancy occasion or just as a casual piece as well:
Testing Out the Goods!
I think their stuff is so cute, and it seems like the pieces would go with just about anything! Whether it’s a special occasion, or a casual day at the mall. That’s what I really liked about their accessories! I don’t really wear hair things, so I didn’t test out any of their hair accessories, but what they have on their site is really cute! I even put one into my collage above to show you guys how adorable they are!!
Another thing that I love about their stuff is the fun, bright colors that they offer! With summer being here, I want to wear vibrant colors and things that make me feel fun and free, and that’s exactly what their selection makes me feel like! Just looking through their stuff, it was hard to just pick a few things out.

Til next time,
I’ve been wanting to do a feature on Lululemon for quite some time. They are a brand known for their high-end yoga and workout wear. The first piece of Lululemon that I owned was a pair of black Groove pants and I have been hooked ever since. Why? Because it’s quality workout wear that you could (and I seriously do) live in.
So for my little feature today, I wanted to feature my favorite pieces from Lululemon that I adore. I now own too much to count, some I like, and some I love. Here are my favorites:
Of course, there are many items that I still want to try and have not yet (namely their headbands, yoga mats, and the free to be sports bras which are super cute). But I’m hoping that will come in time!
For now, I am just obsessed with all things Lululemon. There is one thing that I tell friends and family when it comes to buying their stuff. You will want to try it on first because personally, I think they run a little small. I am usually a size 4 and at Lulu, I’m a size 6. Some of the tops, I even purchase as a size 8 (like the Run pullover above) so that it isn’t tight. But that is a total preference factor
It also makes a difference what types of workouts you typically do. I find that for yoga, I can go with any of their tops and be comfortable (however, the tighter tanks do work better for things like down-dog and such, because they will not flip upside down on you! For my hip hop classes, I like to wear the Practice Freely and No-Limits tanks because they give me room to move around and not have any chaffing with high-impact workouts.
For the pants, I love any of them for yoga. But I especially love the wunder under crops for my hip hop and zumba classes. The Groove yoga pants get a little warm when you’re doing the high level cardio though, so I stick to the capris. I also have a pair of Groove crops that work well for the high-impact classes as well.
Do you have a favorite piece from Lululemon? Share in the comments!!!

A simple but experimental eye look for a summer day can be a smash hit. If you are also willing to look sweet and subtle with a different type of a summer day eye makeup look, then try this one out. This is simple, sweet and easy to do.
Some simple and easy things that you will need for this eye makeup look are as:
- A concealer and foundation
- A face compact
- Eye shadow (Colours needed – Shimmer matte blue eye shadow , yellow eye shadow , pink eye shadow and silver highlighter)
- Liquid Eye Liner
- Lash Curler
- Lash Comb
On clean eye lids, apply concealer and foundation. Follow it up with a compact for a flawless texture.
Apply the Shimmer matte light blue eye shadow on the whole of the eye lid.
Apply the yellow eye shadow on the crease area extending towards the brow bone but not covering full brow bone and leaving some space for the silver highlighter.
Apply the pink eye shadow for that floral summer day touch on the exterior section of the lid. Do not extend it to the middle. Keep it outside the middle.
Apply a silver highlighter on the brow bone and also at the eye nose junction.
Not let’s move onto applying eye liner. Use the liner in a moderate fashion, in a very sleek form. Do not make it too thick or too thin. No need to make a tail because this is a day makeup look. If you are going to wear this on a summer day, then wings should be avoided because they may get smudged. Refer the picture below and make a simple lining like i have done.
Use a black liner pencil, kajal or kohl on the lower rim onto the water line. Do not extend into a tail. Just follow the waterline.
Follow up with a mascara on the top lashes in a top to down form and in zig zag manner on to the lower lashes.
Comb out the excess mascara with a lash comb. This helps to clear out any clumps of mascara left on the lashes.
Step 9: Use a curler if added curling is required.
Here is the final Summer day blue sky eye makeup look.
So this is a simple and sweet glamorous looking clear blue sky summer day eye makeup. Hope you liked this one and will definitely give it a try. And don’t forget to visit Stylecraze for more such makeup tutorials.

I recently discovered an amazing website that is right up my alley in regards to fashion and savvy shopping! I want to introduce to you guys, Lendperk!! The easiest way to describe Lendperk to you is to say it is the Netflix of dresses! Interested in hearing more? You should be, this concept is phenomenal, and I’m in love with it. Let me share a little bit more about Lendperk.
Lendperk is a company that gives you the chance to find new fashion brands and rent their dresses. These aren’t just any dresses either, no, these beautiful dresses are ones that you’d regularly find at Nordstrom, ASOS, etc.
How does it work?
Gone are the days of buying a new dress for different fancy occasions (weddings, graduations, bridal showers, baby showers, company parties, the list goes on.) Instead, you can rent a gorgeous dress for as little as $20/month. You definitely couldn’t buy much of a dress with $20, especially one that is modern and in style and uber-chic!
Want more than one dress a month? That’s fine too! You get an even better deal if you decide to up the ante and get 2 dresses a month for only $34.
If you have a lot of work functions, lots of friends getting married, or just love to wear dresses, then you can get the Unlimited monthly plan! For only $49.99, you will get to choose as many dresses as you want each month with no limit. How amazing is that!?
What if I don’t need a dress one month?
The best part is this, you can roll over your unused dress to the next month! Let’s say you don’t have any occasions in May, but you have two weddings in June. Roll over your dress and have a new dress for each wedding!
You can also cancel anytime you want and restart whenever too, there is no obligation to commit.
Sarah tries a dress!
Yes, I got to take my pick of one of the dresses. This worked out extremely well because I had a special event (Mamapalooza – holla!) that I needed a chic outfit for. Now if you know me, you know that I hate spending money. Instead of buying a high-end dress for $100+, I got to rent one of Lendperk’s fabulous dresses. I chose this Minuet Blue Colorblock dress
I got the dress just a couple days after I picked it out online. It arrived in a nice package and it looked stunning, and I even told my husband how I couldn’t believe it wasn’t wrinkled or anything. It was ready to wear! I hung it up until the big day, and found some matching shoes and a belt that I already owned. Here’s my amateur-photo shoot, which consisted of my husband and my iphone…
I could not believe how many compliments I received in this dress!! It looked cute online, but it looked even better in person! The colors just really popped, and it was just perfect for a nice spring day in Minnesota.
After the event was over, I came home and changed into sweats (er, duh!) Lendperk had sent me a self-addressed, pre-paid envelope to send the dress back in. Easy peasy! I popped it in my mailbox the next day and that was it! No cleaning, no address-hunting, no post office visits; no work.
Do you want to give Lendperk a try? Now is a good time, with summer right around the corner! Check out Lendperk’s monthly plans and find one that suits your lifestyle best
Special offer for May
I just want to mention an offer that Lendperk has right now. Each new member that signs up for a monthly plan will receive a $5 off code! Isn’t that awesome? We all love saving money, don’t we?
I hope you guys check out Lendperk and some of their gorgeous dresses that you can rent! And a special thank you to Lendperk for giving me the chance to look ultra-glam for my event
