Say bye bye to bad-hair days thanks to this chilly-weather accessory. Beanies aren’t just for cold days,though they do make for the better hat choice when it’s windy. They can be worn whenever and can be bought almost anywhere too. That means there’s no need to spend a lot on a beanie. Here are styles ranging from a little over $2 to $22, not too shabby. Wear when your hair is greasy, you’re overdue for a root touchup, or when you just need a little extra accessorizing. Beanies have saved my messy mop many days.

{Why We Love} Cheap-Chic Statement Necklaces that Look Expensive

Here at the Trend Hungry HQ, we are all about accessories. You can have a plain dress, shirt, whatever and create a totally different look just by the way you accessorize. Whether I’m styling a look for a client, a TV segment, or just for myself,I rely on statement necklaces and here’s why.

statement necklaces under $25

1. They take little thought. Throw it on, and go.

2. Attention ahead. Bling around you neck draws the eye there, and isn’t that where people should be looking anyway?

3. Compliment magnet. They aren’t called “statement necklaces” for no reason and tend to reel in the “Ooo’s,” “Aahhs,” and the “where did you get that?” remarks.

4. Adds style. Whether you have jeans and a tee on or pair your necklace with a little black dress, a statement necklace makes you look more styled, even though like point #1 says, it takes little thought and effort.

Since these babies tend to be memorable it’s good to have a few in rotation. The six pictured are under $25.

1. A Girl Can Gleam Blue Statement Necklace, $15.00 at LuLu*s.

7 Drugstore Beauty Buys You Need for Spring

beauty buys

By Simone of Fashion Runs The World

In need of some new product to spruce up your beauty routine? We’ve scouted out the latest and greatest from the drugstore sure to kickstart your beauty routine into the warm temps. And like we said, all these goodies are from the drugstore so  you don’t have to break the bank to snag the latest and greatest. You can get all of these products for under $15. What a wonderful way to begin to add beauty on a budget!

 Lips

I love lipsticks. I think lipsticks and lip gloss can up the amp of an outfit or pull a makeup look together. It’s a must have for any fashionista or makeup connoisseur’s collection. Yet, buying a lot of lip products adds up. Even though I’m a fan of MAC, Urban Decay, Nars, and many others; too many of those names hurt my wallet over time. Thank goodness, drugstore lip products have been stepping their game up!

1. An essential before applying any type of lipstick or lip stain is a good lip moisturizer. While there are many good ones on the market, I personally think the best one is the Baby Lips by Maybelline. This lip balm that comes in six hydrating shades. After using the product for a few days, my lips became softer and moisturized. Add protection with SPF 20 infused into each balm, which makes this product a great investment in your makeup arsenal.

2. Recently, Maybelline released a new addition to their color sensational family called Color Whispers. This collection offers 20 new shades that are perfect for the springtime, like Oh La Lilac, which is a beautiful light purple. These lipsticks have a glossy finish and offer lots of color selections ranging from pink to coral and everything in between.

Tag: Maybelline Color Whispers, $5.94 @ Target.

 

3. Okay, one more thing from the Maybelline family are the Color Sensational Vivids lip color. Unlike their counterpart (the color whispers), these lipsticks are more pigmented and brighter. The color selections for this collection are a little smaller (choosing between ten shades as oppose to 20), but the finish is still same. Their colors range from hot pink to purple and even orange. My personal favorite is the Vibrant Mandarin lip color, which is a beautiful orange-red shade that is very in this season.

4. Lastly for the lips, this one is for all my ladies who don’t like to wear lipstick. L’Oreal has released their Colour Riche Caresse Aqua Lacquer lip gloss which is more like a lip stain than a lip gloss. There are 12 shades in this collection and we like all of them (that never happens!!).

Face

Now that the weather is getting a little warmer outside, wearing foundation can look and feel heavy. Nobody wants to go outside when it’s sunny and hot and fear that their makeup will melt off. Good thing lots of makeup brands have come up with a solution for a light-weight foundation or cream.

 

5. Covergirl came out with their new 3-in-1 foundation, which acts as a primer, foundation and concealer all in one. This new foundation is having all of the beauty vloggers going crazy. This new formula eliminates piling on facial creams.

Tag:  CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation, $8.54 @ Target.

6. Another facial product that is good for the spring is the beauty balm or BB cream as they are referred too. One of the best ones on the market is the Maybelline New York Dream Fresh BB cream. This product is an 8-in-1 skin perfector that blurs imperfections, brightens and evens skin tone, smoothes, and hydrates, enhances, protects with SPF 30, and has 0% oils and heavy ingredients in it.

Tag:  Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream, $6.44 at Target. 

Hair

7. The ombre hair trend took over last year and is staying strong. Everyone from Jessica Alba to Lea Michele is rocking the trend. Fortunately, women everywhere don’t have to run to the salon and  spend $50 or more to get this look. L’Oreal Paris have added a Wild Ombre kit to their Feria collection. This kit retails for only $12 at Target and offers only three shades that work with natural or color treated hair: 080 for light to medium blonde hair, 070 for dark blonde to light brown or strawberry red hair, and 060 for medium to dark brown or auburn hair.

Tag: L’Oreal Feria Wild Ombre Hair Color, $11.99 @ Target.

You can find all of these products online or at your local drugstore. The prices may vary but almost all the brands I mentioned have coupons you can use, so you can stock up on all these wonderful products.

Quick Tip: Head to Target! Every product featured is cheaper there (hence why we listed them as each retailer!!). 

 

Happy Shopping!

Celebs Embrace Their Inner Cat Lady! Should You?

We’re embarking on a major cat moment in fashion. Why? Cats are cute. Cats are kinda funny. Cats are also evil (clearly, I don’t have a cat). So why is this trending? I don’t know, but I do own a cat shirt. I know, I’m a walking contradiction. I’ll be posting a pic of me showing my kitty-cat style soon, but for now let’s focus on how celebs have embraced their inner cat lady.

Kanye, Rita Ora, & Jay Z. In Gold Chains

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are literally the most fashionable couple right now. Kanye has taught our Kimmy to dress more classy and less trashy, and now Kanye is the one setting the trends. Check out his gold necklaces, pretty fashion forward. Even the ladies are copying his style … can you blame them? 

Hip-hop artists are known for rocking gold chains, but Kanye’s sleek layered chains takes the hip-hop style staple and makes it feel like high fashion. As you can see, this trend isn’t just for the men of hip hop.

Celebs in the gold gang include: Jay Z ,  Miley Cyrus, Kanye West, Rita Ora, Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, and Katy Perry.

Floral Bib Necklaces on a Budget

I was at J.Crew today and saw the most gorgeous bib necklace, um ever. It was $228 (way too pricey for costume jewelry!) and then I visited Cupcakes & Cashmere to discover her little piggy bank sporting the bling. My skinny piggy can’t break that kinda bank, so now I am on a quest for the perfect bib necklace. I’d like one that’s pretty, shiny, and showstopping. Under $25 would be ideal.

So here’s my inspiration…

And here are my poor-lady substitutions, that I gotta say, are pretty freaking amazing! So tell it to me straight. Do you like these frugal finds or would you splurge for the big-budget bling? Comment below!

She’ll be on the Main Line showing you her new collection and you can snag a photo with the style maven, so come dressed to impress in your finest tea-time attire. Scroll for fancy frocks under $25.00. I’ll be posting more florals as the event gets closer!

 

What to wear: a floral frock is easy and tea-time appropriate. Throw it on with nude heels or a fun pair of wedges and you’re set. Wear it Easter Sunday to get a test drive on the dress before meeting Whit!!

Swing into Stripes

Stripes = always on trend. ALWAYS! Retro stripes? Even more perfect! The girl from the T-Mobile commercial is my inspiration,  but I kind of love my find WAY more than her dress. Sorry T-Mobile!

This dress is perfect for Easter, so stop worrying about what you’re going to wear. Ohh and check back for Easter egg manicures! I’m going to attempt a DIY :)

 

Tag: Colorblocked Swing Dress, $22.90 at Forever 21.

How To Wear: If it’s cold out add black tights and black pumps. A statement necklace will instantly elevate the look. Try this one out for size.

P.S. Don’t you just LOVE the bow?
