Have you heard? Gordmans has recently launched a new Misses Contemporary department. Find dressy and casual pieces to mix and match for your lifestyle. Kensie, Jessica Simpson and BB Dakota are just a few of the top brands you can shop for up to 60% off department store prices.

Gordmans sells both apparel and home d├ęcor with 90 stores in 19 states. I visited their location in St. Charles, MO, but there are 9 other stores to choose from. Visit their new Arnold location for one of their largest selections in contemporary and affordable style.

My favorite brand at Gordmans has to be Jack, a subsidiary of BB Dakota. Jack’s pieces are on trend with sleek silhouettes and bold colors. I absolutely love yellow and had to have this versatile tank, which can be dressed up or down. I styled it two ways – first by layering it with three pendant necklaces and second with a gold beaded turquoise scarf from Gordmans. Light and bright colors mix well, especially for summertime!

The best find of the trip had to be the studded teal belt. You must check out the accessories section for inexpensive treasures. I got this belt and a white braided belt for only $10 combined! My tank cost $20 and the scarf was $12. All in all, it was a great haul.

Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes + Giveaway

Younique Moodstruck | Bangles & Bungalows

Do you ever have this problem? I apply my mascara, but it never looks as dramatic as when a professional artist does it for me. My other option would be to apply falsies, but I only wear them for special events. To wear falsies everyday is just a bit more high maintenance then I'm willing to go.

Colleen Thomas recently reached out to me about trying Younique's Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes. Check out my before and after transformation below to see for yourself how easy the process is and how dramatic the results are.
Younique 3D Lashes Before & After | Bangles & Bungalows
As you can see my eyes are looking a bit droopy and my lashes quite short in the before picture. In the second image you can see a noticeable difference between the left and right eyes. The left eye draws you in while the right eye is just okay.

Applying mascara is one of the trickiest makeup techniques for me. I usually reach for the q-tips and eye makeup remover to fix mistakes right away. Applying Younique's Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes is incredibly easy. Because the results are immediate and obvious, it is quite encouraging for someone with average makeup skills.

Application Tips: The most important thing is to ensure you apply the fibers immediately after the gel. If the gel isn't wet anymore, the fibers won't stick and they will fall off. Have your fibers wand halfway out of the tube so you can apply quickly.
