Favorite Youtube Channels of the Moment

This has nothing to do with the post but I wanted a picture and I love Okapis!

I absolutely love watching Youtube beauty and fashion videos (when I'm not reading blogs:).
I know I'm definitely not the only one. 
So here are a few of the Youtubers that I watch every single one of their videos.
This is definitely not all of them, just the girls that I can think of right now.

I adore her style.

I also follow and love her blog and she just came back to youtube and hopefully stays!

I'm sure you've already watched them.  They are so inspiring for makeup!

Another very known youtuber.  I love her tutorials.

They got me into thrifting and DIYing.

Another duo of thrifters with great style.

This is definitely not all of them, just the girls that I can think of right now.
Oh and not beauty or fashion related CTFxC.  I love them.

Do you have a youtube channel or are there any youtubers you really love?

Music: M.I.A.

She's a gorgeous, interesting activist with a lot of music originality.
She's best known for Paper Planes but I think XXXO is my favorite. I love putting it on and listening to it replay over and over again.  Reminds me of summer.
Really all of her music has a summer party feel.
Sorry for the random post.  I will have more fashion and beauty up throughout the week. :)

Do you have a favorite M.I.A. song?

Nail Polish: OPI

I'm a bit of an OPI snob.  I kind of only buy OPI unless I see an absolutely beautiful color in another brand (Essie, I'm talking about you).  OPI consistently applies beautifully in only a few coats which is probably why I stay loyal to the brand and I love the names.  

So here's my collection, slowly growing...

and the Top 5...
(Disclaimer: Pictures aren't quality so I linked quality swatches from true nail polish bloggers.)

Left to Right

A gorgeous shimmery opaque red. I'm normally a glitter or cream but this is such a classy red shade.

Looks like a boring brown color in the bottle but beautiful on nails.

It looks AMAZING in the sun. Sparkly and gorgeous.

I love yellow toned pinks. This one is my favorite from OPI and has a nice golden shimmer.

Really unique purple. It's rare for me to like a purple.

Is there any OPI color I should add to my collection?

Thrifted: Destroyed Shorts

 I've been seeing a lot of the high waisted distressed denim shorts around and have been dyeing to try them out.  I didn't want to spend $40 plus on a pair of these since I figured it's a one season type thing.  

 So I ventured into the thrift store to do it myself. 
I've never been in a thrift store before so I found it pretty overwhelming but I was happy to see that all jeans were 50% off at goodwill.

I bought these Levis for $3.  I was really inspired by Shenae Grime's pair and I think they turned out pretty well. 
After a few hours of distressing, they went from mom jeans to trendy summer shorts.  

I also bought 2 more pairs (*The pair in the middle I didn't like so I'm returning them.) Both $4.  The first pair is from Gap and the second are Abercrombie & Fitch.  
I think I'm going to dye the Abercrombie's since they're a bit boring on their own.

Have you ever gone thrifting?

Megan Fox

I love her, a lot.

People try to tell me she's fake, trashy and/or a horrible actress (not denying those statements truth) but all of that doesn't deter my love.  She's hot, she knows it and works it.

Done with the Megan Fox obsession. She also dresses perfectly and has nice eyebrows. Ok, now I'm done.

Who's your celeb love?
