Distant Love…5 Relationship tips for long distant lovers!

tumblr_kwq037vyph1qak6kio1_500 Hey there beauty lovers here is a different approach to my normal posts! My boyfriend and I are almost to our anniversary of four years! We are very much in love and happy and it has inspired me to create this post! Since we started dating, my boyfriend and I have been living and going to college in different states and it has definitely been hard, but so worth it. I know many of you have significant others that live way further than an hour or two away but these tips apply to all living apart, or as just dating tips in general! 🙂

1) Be loyal. This one comes as an obvious, but there are a lot of unfaithful people out there. Treat your partner how you would like to be treated. Don’t be flirting, seeing, or talking to any other person behind your lovers back. Be faithful to yours, and be real with them. If you stray or aren’t interested anymore then break it off, cheating  just causes more heart ache on both people’s end. It is a waste of time and effort in a relationship if someone is unhappy enough to cheat.

2) Be open and honest! When there is distance between any relationship, it can call for miscommunication and misunderstanding. Through texting, talking, or whatever you can never really know what are the intentions or tone that your other is speaking with. It is always better to call, or better yet video chat and really communicate fully especially with fighting or serious matters. Let them know how you are feeling, but as well how they are. Distance can cause an emotional toll on people, so it’s good to check in with one another.

3) Don’t freak out over the little stuff. This goes with choosing your battles. If you find yourselves fighting over something positively stupid, then drop it. Ask yourself if the fight your having is really worth the tie and energy in your relationship. Fight the big ones, and loose the ones that are for nothing. Constant bickering on top of distance is a sure way to drift apart.

4) Trust them, not cause them. Trust me, this is a lesson I had to learn. It doesn’t matter how much you trust your love, sometimes when their far away and you don’t talk and see each other as much, your imagination can run wild! You think oh they will find someone better than me, or are at some girls (or boys) house and aren’t staying faithful. This can cause you to panic a little and feel vulnerable. I am saying if they love you and you can trust them then you can learn to calm down. You don’t need to constantly be texting them being like where are you, who are you with, ect. Learn to let go and trust them or it can cause you guys to fight and develop un grounded trust issues.

5) Keep Current. Don’t just text all day long. Spice things up, and loose the boring to word texts! Skype, Instagram, snap chat, late night call, anything to keep up with your loved one. Talking through type only goes so far, but seeing them and hearing them or even getting silly face snap chats really can help you both feel like they never left.

Some Extras!

-My boyfriend and I write each other letters whether they are hand written or on an email. Just knowing they took that extra time to write you something long and sappy really is sweet!

-We are both artists so we draw each other pictures! This is something very personal and thoughtful, if you can’t draw then bake them some food, or play them online in a video game! Get creative!

-Keep a picture. My boyfriend has our prom picture on his desk where he is, and I have one of us together on my night stand. Little ways of remembrance is great for relationships.

-Enjoy the time you have together. If you get a weekend or whatever to see one another, don’t spend it sleeping in late or in a bad mood. Plan ahead and do some fun activities wheat he fit is baking a nice dinner together or getting an espresso and reading some books at Barnes and Nobles the possibilities for bonding are endless!

-Look forward to something. Holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, big events, vacations, all things you do together! If you have something coming up you are going to do together plan and talk about it and the time from then and the get together will fly by and get you excited! Love each other and listen and you will have a long an amazing time with whomever your heart is with. If you have any questions or comments let me know down below 🙂 Love always Pearlsnheels ❤

Falling in love with Fall & Winter: 5 Looks for this Season!

IMG_20131006_135146

  Hey loveys, I decided to compile the best fall fashion styles, makeup, and hair looks for this upcoming season! Here in New England especially fall and winter are a time for packing away the shorts and flip flops and dragging out the old dumpy sweaters! BUT ladies, just because it’s cold doesn’t mean our fashion must fail. SO here are the best of the best fall and winter looks, so with the start of the cold weather you can transition in style. I will say you should still keep warm and comfy, but don’t need a snow suit :p

Let’s look at the hair! Fall is great to get funky with the braids and up dos, set let’s get fancy!

730754998bcf48194c09233a0c6a0b35

Whimsical and pretty! Here is a sweet style for medium hair lengths pulled back with a sweet head band.

17d9ed445e413b1877f8ec7e707b41a9

 Love this fresh faced look, complimented by and easy hair do! You get to see the nice length of the hair, but the bangs are twisted back to showcase your makeup!

40ea05cb620d4681be08195bad7dadd9

Great for those bad hair days! A simple fix with a cute bow!

2e6e655ad7b01320e96073226a9bc816

Beautiful and braided! If you have the time a french braid can really dress up your look.

e0a8518752476ce6923739b4e2b52bbc

A cozy cap can be so warm and perfect for those winter days when you have no time to wash your hair!

Let’s get dressed up, warm, and stylish. YES WARM AND STYLISH! 

3edd7b7daa205a144e8f6648c24d2e3e

What a smart looking outfit for the transition from fall in to winter. I love the dark jeans, leather boots, and a classy jacket is perfect for a complete look in the cold.

bb5cd644f216874a392fd305ab9e1a43

I am in love with this ensemble. A nude knit sweater turtle neck and a wine colored skirt is very romantic is feminine looking.

7e8f946e7911d64c57fc4382c91e81a8

For a girl tough to the cold, some cute pink Uggs and tights look adorable!

90536e0abb9f4b21185569a0fbe55b5b

I hate winter jackets! They are usually full of fluff and fattening looking. You can stay warm without all the padding, and settle for a nicer long jacket, this one has a particularly gorgeous violet color.

16017e0bd52c57e173bdf08ebed58082

Lovely textures! A snowy white long sleeve and vintage pattern skirt! I love the statement necklace on top as well.

Your nails get cold too! Better coverup! Here are some warming winter colors!

849ee17bcacf667f6a03c0e20b4bc184

Square and dark, love the deep blood red color. Very Vampy.

2c43880a27d73d925bb8abfb3e44593cGold and a deep taupe are always in style and look very dressy!

a0d007a021ed9b9a682eb60ccb91ecbb

Glitter and periwinkle attack! Very magical and a great color combo!

a95c3281eac85bcf48d9836c636e1728

This color is great! It is a witchy green, that is a great complementary color for all skin tones!

& For my favorite the winter and fall makeup looks!

19ba5dd278f1561af4e7a2edc3fbac13

Bold brows, and burnt cranberry eyes. This is a very vampire inspired eye, with a fierce and fiery twist.

b3687b91643276950370bc18f7ffde69

Great sparkling pumpkin look! This is a sweet eye look that pulls together all the colors of foliage and adds some special glitter.

49a99d084676b2f5a0f57bf6e798da5bGreat glamour look using greens and a highlight color. This would be beautiful for green and brown eyes.

ab572cf9e1f0047f21f19b6ec7381465

Yup, I dropped a photo of Miley. I know, I know Judge fest lol But I love her makeup her! There is something timelessly classic about a ruby lip and great lashes.

efc58b1e14c3708ee657c5db40248b04

A shimmery nude look is perfect for the everyday makeup wearer. This image is great because it shows you witch shadows to use where. This look really widens the eye and can go with any outfit.

That’s it for now, hope you enjoyed seeing what inspires my fall and winter wardrobe. Basically its a nice mix of classy taupes with pops of color! All images I got from Pinterest, it is a great site for fashion and makeup inspiration. You can check out my Pinterest here ! 🙂

Hope you enjoyed reading, thank you and Love always Pearlsnheels ❤

Luscious Cranberry Lips! A glossy review.

wpid-20131007_190241.jpg

Hey babes, so yet another review. This one is on a beautiful lipgloss stain, I recently got and tried out from Ageless Derma. My shade is in cranberry, I chose this color from the many great colors they have on their website http://www.agelessderma.com/lipgloss.aspx

wpid-20131007_190127.jpg

They have twelve beautiful shades to choose from, and also contain many natural enriched beauty skin products and makeup! They have a great set up on their site and  sell great products, for good prices, and you feel good using.

wpid-20131007_190027.jpg

This lipgloss in particular I feel is more of a glossy stein, because one application is all you need! If the lip gloss comes off some what throughout the day, which it lasts pretty long, it leaves the color stained on your lips in a beautiful matte shade. Cranberry, the shade I chose really compliments my fair skin tone, and has incredible color payoff. The best way to apply this lipgloss is with a lipstick brush, so you don’t stain your finger tips lol It also has a great smooth satin finish on your lips.

The consistency is just right, it is not chunky, or too liquidy. It is a nice creamy texture but make sure to keep the container somewhere cool because to tends to melt in high heat. It is a great lip product to have, and has become one of my go to lip products for fall 🙂

wpid-20131007_185946.jpg

wpid-20131007_185956.jpg

The packaging as you can see if very cute! It comes in a cute little black box, lined with a lilac purple interior. The lipgloss is a great size as well, I am actually more partial to the circle containers, than the tubes, so I am loving this packaging!

Check out their site, they have a lot of great natural beauty products, and is definitely a diamond in the rough site to find!

Thank you so much for reading and Love always Pearlsnheels ❤

Let’s Get Intense.. Circle Lenses Review

Hey loves, I know I have been MIA. BUT, I had a good reason. A few weeks ago I wanted to get circle lenses SO BADLY! I mean don’t we all want bigger eyes? If you don’t know circle lenses are..they can come in prescription and nonprescription.  They are colored lenses that are usually bigger in diameter than most contacts. The ones I am wearing are 15mm in diameter contacts, where as my usual size is about 14 mm. There are a lot of benefits to circle lenses, such as they can make your eyes appear larger, there are more styles and colors to choose from, and there is no prescription needed to order them! SO I have been wearing them for 2 weeks now and really giving them a go, to serve you up my own most honest opinion and review of them! 😀

wpid-20131011_144821.jpg

When you visit you optometrist, if you wear contacts, can recommend some colored contacts in the same brand that you already wear that are CRAZY EXPENSIVE. Yes, they have a range of colors that are all somewhat natural looking, and the most exciting color is light purple, and 3 pair will charge $175. Which is ridiculous. Being the cheepo I am I decided I was not going to pay that for colored contacts…I mean aren’t they just pieces of plastic you use and discard?! So naturally I googled. I found http://www.thedollyeye.com, and I read multiple reviews myself to see what their rep was. They are amazing contacts, that I have really grown to be in love with! Their site apart from contacts, has other beauty products as well, and is definitely worth checking out. Under the circle lenses tab, is where the fun begins!

They have so many colors, styles, themed, and sizes, and prescription/non-perscription lenses to choose from! The biggest challenge is figuring out from all the kinds which ones you want to buy, they are all wicked cool! I wanted like 20 pairs, for real :p On their site they also have links to pictures taken by real people wearing them so you can see better what they will look like in person, which is great.  AND they are only around  $25 per pair which is way better than the actual recommended ones from your doctor. In most cases always go to your doctor first, but in this case, I have been wearing contacts for 7 plus years now, and have tried many different contacts and brands, and as long as you buy them from a reliable source, know your script number, and use them correctly you are golden!

wpid-20131018_005610.jpg

As you can see, this is what you get when you order your contacts! Two vials containing your contacts in solution, I bought the Twilight Green ones, because I already have green eyes and wanted a more fun intense green look! Mine are in a -3.75 prescription, as you can see on the lid, and they even give you a little carrying lens case to keep them in. So to be honest, you have to get used to them…at first if you already where contacts you know the drill, don’t sleep in contacts, keep them clean in refreshed daily solution, ect. Circle lenses however, since they are much larger, deprive your eyes of more oxygen. With this being said, NEVER sleep in these contacts. Regular contacts you can get away with this once in a while, but which such a large contact lens, this can really harm and damage your eyes while you sleep. It is pretty much eye murder by means of suffocation lol

wpid-20131013_183352.jpg

When you first get them, take them remove them from the vile, by unscrewing the sharp (be careful) metal caping mechanism, and poor them into the lens carrying case and fill with fresh solution. If you have never warn contacts you can buy the solution at Target or anywhere for $3. It is hard to explain, but if you don’t know how to put a contact lens in, Youtube a video of it. Basically, what I do is gently pull down the lower lid, with head tipped somewhat down, and apply it to your eye while looking up, so you don’t touch your pupil, then let go and roll your eyes around till the contacts adjust to your pupil. If there is a lot of discomfort at first make sure they are clean, not bent, and are not in folded backwards, ha ha this happens sometimes…

AT FIRST, I got somewhat of a head ache…but naturally your body needs time to adjust to new things…as if you had a caffein headache. But after I got used to them, I have been absolutely loving them! 🙂 Mine are really intense but that’s just my style, but they have natural ones on their site as well! I recommend only wearing them for a bit when you start out, not to add stress on your sensitive eyes! Start off by wearing them for 6 hours maximum, and see how they feel. I don’t wear mine all day long, everyday. I wear them as more of a special thing, when I am going out, or want a dressed up look. I have gotten so many complements from people on these colored ones, it makes me just want more kinds. They are fun, and unique, and can really switch up your look. They are also great for people like me, who are always trying to make their eyes look bigger or more enhanced.

wpid-20131011_144929.jpg

I love pairing these lenses with lots of eyeliner and mascara, even false lashes, to really play them up and give them that Barbie Doll look, I mean why not? I suggest if you want them to look more natural, pick a color somewhat close to your eye color. If you want natural looking blue eyes, but have dark brown ones normally, it will be a little difficult for you can slightly see your natural eye color underneath the pupil opening in the lens, but only if someone was really looking. I have been wearing them for a couple weeks now, and completely in love, they are just that interesting pop to my makeup looks! I suggest giving them a try since they are so affordable, and you can really choose whatever ones fit your life best 🙂 You can find them at http://www.thedollyeye.com

Here is an example of a makeup look I rocked to enhance the color of the contacts, since they are green I chose a warm gold tone 🙂 You can see my own green eyes a bit, but it is not so noticeable in person, I love love love these bad boys! :p

I love hearing your feedback 🙂 Please stay tuned for more posts, I am trying to schedule a time to post more regularly. Thank you so much for reading and Love always Pearlsnheels ❤
