Inspired Style: Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir

Whimsical and great beats, Of Monsters and Men is one of my favorite bands. Their music is addictive and their live performances are wonderful. Whilst watching these performances via youtube, I noticed one of the lead singers', Nanna, outfits. I love her sense of style. It's grungy yet feminine. Here below I provided some clothing based on her live performance outfits. 

1. A lot of the times, she sports a button down shirt, like shown, with the collar buttoned. This can be worn with a pair of black skinny jeans. 
2. This skeleton muscle dress seems to suits her style. Maybe add some sheer tights?
3. During music festivals, this maxi skirt can be worn with...
4. ...this cropped muscle tee. 
5. A pair of Docs or even some Chelsea boots can be worn with some ankle socks.
6. Of course, Nanna always completes her outfits with a boater hat- her signature look. 

That's it! A short post on some inspired clothing from Nanna from Of Monsters and Men. In honor of the band I will link a video here. Thanks for reading.

Almay Eyeliner Review

I think it's best that this blog should have a beauty related post rather than that silly one I did a couple of days ago. I'm doing a short review of the Almay eyeliner. It's the most basic eyeliner from this brand and I think it's great.

-It lasts a long time compared to other pencil eyeliners
-It's retractable and comes with it's own sharpener
-It comes with a lot of product 

-Sharpener doesn't work well
-Looses it's sharp point, comes to a dull end (use sharpener that doesn't work well)
-It smudges (though I find this as a positive connotation)

In conclusion, I love this eyeliner. It is one of my favorites and I intend to keep purchasing it. I have already used up many shades from black to brown. The staying power is great- reapply once every few hours (if you really need it just to touch up). Taking off the eyeliner is at ease with the makeup remover. It's easy to apply and glides on smoothly. An eyeliner costs about seven dollars. Basically, this is a wonderful drugstore eyeliner. 

I definitely recommend it.
