Giveaway Break - Kohl's $50 Gift Card

One of my many guilty pleasures is watching The Hills on MTV. Lauren Conrad, star of The Hills, on the 'reality' show Laguna Beach and then left for the hills to pursue a career in fashion. She got a good start and just launched her own line at Kohl's, LC Lauren Conrad.

It's a contemporary lifestyle brand that will launch in the woman's department in approximately 300 Kohl's stores and this October. The brand will consist of apparel and may expand into additional categories such as footwear, jewelry, handbags, intimates and sleepwear. The line range from $20 - $60.

The clothing line has laid back California style, with long cardigans called the 'boyfriend sweaters' and skinny jeans. It looks ultra comfy and I think it will do well. I could see myself lounging around on a Saturday afternoon with the boyfriend jeans and boyfriend sweater about you? What are your thoughts on the new line?

Changing My Look with the Weather...

The weather is changing, so why shouldn't your look? I just got my hair chopped and went darker with some low lights. That's not the only change. I'm wearing darker lipglosses and heavier eye liners. Why? Why not? It's the time of year to switch out your flip flops for Uggs and freshen up your look with trying out new daring things!

I feel like I'm able to wear all sorts of different colors with my new darker, shorter do. I did my eyes in heavy black eye liner today using Loreal's HIP Color Chrome Eyeliner in Black Shock. This eyeliner is super creamy and goes on so well. You sharpen it like a pencil, but it's lot softer. It's described as a liquid pencil.

I swept Senna Cosmetics Pandora shadow over my eyes, and topped it off with Loreal's Telescopic Explosion Mascara. Have you caught wind of this stuff yet? The wand is not your typical mascara wand, it's a ball! It takes a few tries to get use to it, but after that you'll be a pro at coating your lashes lash by lash for a full, long look. It gives me a lot of length, so much that my mom commented the other day 'what kind of mascara are you using?'

I'm also rocking Revolution Organics Freedom Glow beauty balm on the apples of my cheeks and lips. This stuff rocks. It totally brightens up my look and skin. I carry it with me to work so I can apply it at the end of the day, when my skin is looking a little tired or dull, and my blush/bronzer from earlier is wearing off. I was a little hesitant to apply it at first, kind of awkward in it's huge tube, but once it's dabbed on your cheeks it blends really well, almost fool proof. I toss this in my purse as a two for one freshen up for cheeks and lips.

I topped my lips with Tallulah Glossary Mineral Gloss in Berry Godmother. I received this gloss in this gorgeous berry color and in Skinny Dip, which is a shimmery nude. With my hair a little darker, I'm digging it in Berry. This gloss is moisturizing and super shimmery. The packaging is great too, with fun 'kiss' facts on it. One reads: "A high impact kiss quickens your pulse to 100 beats per minute, who needs the treadmill."

I'm feeling like a new person, bring on the cold weather!

Tell me ladies (and gents :), what are you doing to change and freshen your look this season? It doesn't have to be drastic, even if it's trying a new lipstick, let's say, bright red, it can make you feel totally refreshed and daring. Leave me a comment and please, do share!
