Celebrity Stylelust: Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence captured all of us when she played the role of Katniss Everdeen in 'The Hunger Games'. Ever since then, we've been obsessed! We love how she can be a tomboy one moment and then transform herself for a red carpet and be so gorgeous and effortless. 

Her newest movie 'House at the End of the Street' was just released last Friday, so we wanted to highlight her for this edition of Celebrity Stylelust!

#1) Essie Nail Color 'Skirting the Issue' $8

A beautiful burgundy wine colored nail polish! Our all time favorite nail color choice for Fall! Essie always has such great colors, and the formula is highly pigmented and long lasting!

This is an amazing shadow to use all over the lid for a mysterious look! A great burgundy It has tiny flecks of shimmer throughout the eyeshadow that will twinkle under the moonlight!

#3) Too Face La Creme Lipstick in 'Sweet Maple' $21

This is a plumy brown color thats perfect for those who dont want to do the all out deep dark plum lip color. Great for everyday wear, and that gold case is so luxurious!

#4) Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Liner in 'Twilight Night' $22

These famous long wear gel liners from Bobbi Brown are all so pretty! Especially the ones that have a slight shimmer! This color is the perfect addition to their line of best sellers with a dark plum color with gold flecks in between!

#5) NARS Cream Blush in 'Montenegro' $28

More of a reddish plum color, this blush is a cream so if you like having more control on the amount of color, these cream blushes are great! Rub a little bit of this color on your finger and blend into the apples of your cheeks!

Book Worm: The Watchers Trilogy by Karice Bolton

Here is another short book review for you all!

 I just finished reading this series, but sadly I was a little disappointed.. but I think it was because I had such high expectations for it from reading all the reviews.

This is my short review for the series, I decided to summarize the pros and cons instead of doing a full review.. so I hope you don't get too bored =)



I could really feel the love between the two main characters in the series. The author did a great job adding emotion and explaining how much they belonged together.

The action scenes were captivating and left me on the brink.

The characters personalities were easily distinguishable from one another.

The ending had an unexpected twist.


The writing style was a bit hard to follow and it jumped around a lot. I think it needed more explanation.

The build up to the two main characters love I feel was a little too sudden in the beginning.

The main character Ana was wishy washy and was a bit hard for me to relate to.

Overall Rating: 3 out of 5 Stars

Have you read this series? If so, what's your take on it?
