Room Tour

I just wanted to do a quick little room tour, showing some highlights and favorite points of my pink, girly room!

This is just my laptop, phone, and diary. I am always using one of these three with writing, texting, or just having fun and maybe shopping online! My bed is so fluffy and comfy, but my headboard is not completed yet (we are going to paint it using white paint to match everything else) so, I wanted to wait on showing all of the bed.

So, as you can tell already, my walls are a very light, soft pink. I absolutely adore this color and think it’s so pretty and feminine. These are my angel wings. They are right over my bed, and they were my first big art/decor purchase when I turned 16. I love angels, and I remember I fell in love with them from a little boutique downtown. They instantly reminded me of Baz Luhrmann’s 1996 version of Romeo+Juliet, because of her angel wings in the movie, as well as Juliet’s room.

This is my closet, the view from my bed and I have my favorite, dreamy tulle dress from Tobi hanging up and my corsages from my Senior Homecoming and Prom! I also have my little version of a dream board next to the door. There are pictures of my dream car (a baby blue, convertible VW) my dream purse (the new White LV Damier Azur Rose Ballerine Neverfull MM- with a cute pink pom pom on the side!) and finally, my dream vacation in the City of Love, Paris! I look at all of these daily to encourage and inspire myself with my dreams, and it gives me a little bit more inspiration to keep working hard towards them. Plus, the colors go great with my room!

The last stop along my room tour will be my romantic vanity, accompanied by my amazing Ghost chair, and my super sparkly pillow! All of these have been gifted to me, the chair and pillow my Mom found (she’s an interior designer and always finds incredible pieces) and the vanity from my Aunt and Uncle. I love sitting here in the mornings. A vanity is a great way to encourage yourself to get ready in the mornings, because it’s exciting to actually use it and sit at it with all of your makeup, and the pretty mirror and everything.

I hope everyone enjoyed my room points of view, does your room have a theme? Do you have special pieces, or are you looking for something in particular? Let me know in the comments below! ❀

Cleaning Brushes

It was cleaning day today! I cannot stress enough how important it is to clean. your. brushes!!! You must clean your makeup brushes, because they carry so much old makeup, dirt, and bacteria. That’s all horrible for both your application and skin.

The process is easy:

1. Heat up the water in your sink

2. Grab a brush and start scrubbing it clean with warm water and whatever shampoo you use

I use this kind:

It doesn’t matter what kind you use, and you don’t need a fancy cleaner that costs $40 to clean your makeup brushes. Just shampoo and scrub them by hand, and you’ll be all good! (I’ve also seen those brush cleaning machines, and not one review has recommended it). 

3. Lay each brush out to dry. This can take a few hours, up to a whole day, but it is completely worth it to have nice, soft, clean brushes 😁

My final result for the night posted above, and I also cleaned out the two containers I use to hold all of my brushes. I don’t want any of that dirt coming back too soon. (I love my adorable “C” mug!) You should also be doing this every two weeks. Just try your best! πŸ’• How often do you wash your brushes? Have you found any products you specifically like to use, or different techniques? Let me know in the comments below! πŸ’•

Happy Skin!Β 

Hi there beauties! (Quick intro) In one of my previous posts, I mentioned sticking to a skincare routine. Skin care is so important, it is the very first step to a great makeup look! Your makeup starts, before the actual foundation, or even the primer. With that being said, I do have a special post coming up featuring some new Mary Kay skincare products along with some other exciting Mary Kay treats that I know you guys will adore. 
I wanted to talk about skincare a bit more, but also about learning to love your skin even if it isn’t flawless naturally. I have combination skin, and what that means is that some places of my face are more acne prone, and I have dry patches in other parts of my face-mainly my cheeks. You could see how this can be very frustrating. However, part of learning to love your skin is to just accept it. You can use a lot of products to help whatever skin type you have, but you must be dedicated to giving your skin whatever love it needs. I’ve learned to accept my skin type as combination skin, and I’m figuring out how to take care of it from the inside out. But it’s up to you with YOUR skin to figure out what it needs. Vitamins? Night cream? Medication? It’s up to you to figure it out and help it along. Also, keep in mind to try and stay positive about the whole process to happy skin. Did you know that stress can cause horrible breakouts? It’s something to keep in mind so you don’t get into a cycle of stressing out and breaking out. 

My favorite thing to both avoid the stress and take care of my skin? Do a relaxing, hot bath and a face mask. How do you relax and take care of your skin? 😘

January 2017 Wish list!Β 

​Hello everyone! πŸ’•

While these feel a little more casual, I love doing these wish lists and sharing exciting products I would like to purchase. I also love to hear what is on their peoples wish lists, I think it’s so interesting and I’ll go and watch YouTubers wish lists (which eventually leads to hauls) I just get so into all of it. Also, talking about these things or writing them down kind if makes me feel like I’m writing in a diary or talking with a girlfriend and it’s fun! 
#1 Holographic nail powder- I’ve wanted holo nails for the longest time, and I watched @HeyParis’s video on how to do it at home, so I went out and searched the internet for the sparkly fairy dust for a reasonable price! 


#2 Jelliez lip plumping mask- I already love my lips, but recently I’ve just been curious about all of these lip plumping products and how I would look with a semi-permanent pout, so I want to give this one in particular a try. I searched for different YouTube and Instagram videos, and this one came up the most showing results😊 


#3 The Neutrogena Acne Light Mask- I first saw this in a commercial (duh, marketing doing it’s job and apparently nicely if I want it!) I was intrigued by the masks appearance and the neon glow from within. That glo is actually the treatment which you use about 10-15 minutes per session daily to help reduce acne and get rid of dark spots.

I do struggle with acne and right now I am really into skincare which I could probably do a whole post about different products and finding what’s right for your skin, and reminding young tweens like I was at one point that just covering the acne with makeup doesn’t make it go away! 

#4 Nano portable hydrating mister- I first saw this on Instagram and have just become obsessed with this little gadget. It is more for dry skin I would think, but I am sure you could use it with oily skin if you just use water, and  I do have combo skin and you could even just fill it with water and spritz it everywhere if it’s hot out, or I could also see this being really great for airplane travel because your skin and everything can get SO DRY on a plane due to the lack of moisture in the air. 


That’s everything on my list for now! Which product interested you the most, and what’s on your wish list this month?  Let me know in the comments! 😘

❀ Chic Couture β€

​Let me tell you guys about a super cute clothing brand called Chic Couture! Already a sweet name, right? Well if you take a look at their website, they have even sweeter clothes and deals that are perfect for everyday, or that special day coming up- Valentine’s Day! β€πŸ’•

Keep reading until the end for a fab deal!

 The first piece I wanted to show you is what really drew me into the brand, this luxurious velvet dress 😍 it comes in pink or red and just screams glam. It’s prefect for a night out, special occasions, or just everyday wear for hanging out and looking chic! I would pair this look with a cute diamond choker and thigh high boots, or cute, fluffy sandals. Of course, if heels are not your thing plain or sparkly flats would look just as sweet. For the colder season a cute faux fur jacket or simple cardigan would pair nicely with these. Or, for a bit of an edge you could wear a black leather jacket over with some booties. πŸ’• These lovely dresses are $32 each and along with everything else, can be found in the link to the shop below! 

The next item is this sexy, dramatic high-low top for $20. This stylish too can be worn with shorts as shown and again, I would pair it with thigh high boots, or nice jeans with any shoe of choice and some delicate jewelry. The look is great for all ages and would look flattering on anyone! You could go so many different directions with this look, you could belt it at the middle to accentuate your waist, or leave it loose and free with some skinny jeans for a more casual look.  

The final item which is great for January/February is this adorable beanie! I purchased this item a year or so ago and it is so comfy and soft. I love the little touch of suede with their signature C.C. on the brim. Whether your style is girly and glam, or nice and casual this accessory is a staple for your wardrobe especially in the cold months. (I know it isn’t cold EVERYWHERE right now, but it can stay chilly for awhile throughout the next few months, even transitioning into the springtime.) πŸ’• Style tip? or more of a fun fact about Stylshorty, I love to wear beanies at night because it just adds to warmth and coziness when I want to be all comfy- these are prefect for itπŸ’• Thought they couldn’t get any cuter? Me too, until I saw time with wait for it….fur pom poms! Anyone who knows me knows that I am on love with the faux fur trend right now and these just add to the major cuteness factor of these hats! They are $15 without the pom pom and $20 with! 

But wait! Want to look save money while you’re looking stylish and chic?! Use my promo code Style10 for 10% off! πŸ’— Another bonus, FREE SHIPPING! 😁 Here is the link to Chiccouture and have fun shopping lovelies! Let me know what pieces you adored, which ones are going on your wish list, and which ones you bought! 😘

πŸ’Ž Jewelry Haul! πŸ’Ž

​Hey everyone! Today I wanted to show you a small jewelry haul featuring some of my favorite pieces! I am a jewelry girl, I have always been ever since I was little and I love anything that sparkles and shines! πŸ’ŽπŸ’–

This first piece is a bit pricier, but I bought it for myself as a birthday gift from the Swarovski outlet. I had been wanting this necklace for ages ever since I had seen it on Gabi DeMartino in her tattoo vlog. I searched forever to find it online, I didn’t see it in stores or anything but when I finally went to the outlets and found it, you can imagine my excitement 😊 It’s very simple, just a small round cyrstal on a thin chain. I wear this aost daily and I love it! The stone rests prefectly just below my neck, almost tight enough to be a choker but not quite which is what i loved about it for this necklace because of its simplicity. The price was around $100, possibly more. Honestly I was so excited to get it I don’t quote remember the price but it was definitely between $100-$120


These next two rings are from Nordstrom Rack and they are by the brand Covet. They are super pretty, the first one is like a big cocktail ring, it almost reminded me of something Kim Kardashian would wear, who is a big idol to Amber Scholl who I actually got the inspiration from for a lot of my jewelry. I love her style and all the bling! What girl doesn’t? The next ring is just a diamond band, a bit thicker but it is super cute and more wearable than the first ring with the bigger stone. You could wear this one with a lot more outfits just to have a little bit of bling to your look of the day. They were both about $18 and unfortunately they did not have my exact size (5.5) but I know a few tricks that I will talk about in another post to make them fit! 


Another ring I have that I wear daily is my promise ring from my amazing boyfriend πŸ’• it is adorable and from Pandora, he bought it for me for Valentine’s day last year and I’ve never taken it off! Pandora was lovely to us when we went to go pick it up in the store Valentine’s Day weekend and they also provided me with a cleaning cloth to use if I see it’s getting a bit dirty. Of course, you could use any ring cleaner as well and it comes out dazzling! It is very sweet and elegant, I believe it is called the Classic Elegance ring and was around $100. I wear it daily and it goes with really all my outfits. It has a beautiful center stone with a small halo surrounding it and obviously makes me really happy because it has sentimental value, but also because it truly is one of my favorite pieces I have from someone I love ❀


This choker is from Rue 21 and I found it at one of my local malls for just $6. I was so happy, as I thought it was $12 (which is a fine price) and then when I went to go check out it was on sale! Such a happy feeling 😁 Rue 21 has a lot of great jewelry for low prices. Back to the necklace, it has been so hard for me to find a choker like this for a lower price. It is gorgeous with diamonds all around and the metal is rose gold! So pretty! I haven’t even seen any other chokers like this with rose gold, most are gold or silver which are pretty too but the color really stood out to me. It fits nicely and it’s pretty comfortable for a choker. 


The final ring I am going to show you guys is again a halo style ring but in a square cut. I picked this one up from Icing which has a lot of great jewelry in this really fun, blingy, sparkly style as well. They have one se tion with “wedding rings” which are just little fun costume rings that you could either play pretend with if you’re younger or just use as dailywear like I do πŸ˜‰ It’s cute, similar to my other rings but still unique and I believe this ring was around $10-$15. Not a bad price 😊
I hope you all enjoyed this haul, I had a lot of fun making it and being able to show you guys what I love accessory wise πŸ’• leave a comment below and tell me what you love to use to pull your outfit together or add a little sparkle to your style! πŸ’ŽπŸ˜˜

Live Shopping Videos!

As many of you know, Instagram has a live video feature. Well, because I spend so much time shopping often I want to be able to share it with people so I’ve started live videoing my little shopping trios including online shopping adventures and my wish lists or shopping carts for clothes, sales, and lots of great deals. Whenever there is a new sale going on or deal I will try my best to alert you guys and we can just chat and show each other what we’ve been looking at! I would love to see other beauty and fashion gurus participate as well. πŸ’• Follow my Instagram to find out more: @styleshawty
