Winter Must-Haves

Hey guys! Today I am sharing with you some of my must-haves for winter 2012. I hope you guys like this stuff and are inspired to re-vamp your winter wardrobe!

Printed shirt / Etoile Isabel Marant low rise corduroy pants / Plein Sud leather pants / Miso short shorts, $24 / Buckle boots / Charlotte Russe lace up booties

1. Crazy leggings are a must-have for sure! Whether they are printed or metallic like these ones, they spice up any outfit the second you slip into them.
2. Corduroy pants are another thing I have seen around lately. The funky texture can add a rocker or a flirty feel!
3. Sequins, anyone? They are definitely some of my favorites! If you get a pair of sequined shorts, you can easily throw on a pair of thick leggings underneath and call it a day! Once again I'm telling you to play around with layering and textures to create the perfect winter outfit!
4. Comfy sweaters are amazingly comfortable and complete the perfect "This old thing? I threw it on 5 minutes ago!" look. I love the signature 'Christmas' sweater and I think the sheep on the other one are adorable! As weird as it might sound, I have been seeing lots of animals on sweaters!
5. Boots, boots, boots! I love any type of boots, especially riding boots with this warm brown color.
6. Another one of my favorites are combat boots because they really toughen up an outfit and make your look seem more put together!
7. There is no way I could have done a winter must-haves post without mentioning my favorite winter drink, HOT CHOCOLATE! Its such a happy drink that makes you feel so warm and fuzzy inside!:)

Hope you guys enjoyed!

5 Tips and Tricks for Looking Healthy!

I'm so happy it is finally December!! In order to celebrate the fact that it is freezing outside, I am going to show you 5 tricks for looking instantly healthy, which is a must have for those winter days when you are feeling under the weather and don't have much time to get ready. Only one of my tips actually uses makeup, so you should defenetly have all of these products! Lets get started:

Tip 1: Naturally Buffing Your Lips

Take petroleum jelly and rub it onto your lips. Wait around 5 minutes then take a rough towel and rub it in circular motions over you lips. This will take off all the dead skin and give you supper smooth, kissable lips!

Tip 2: Look More Awake

All you have to do is take and illuminating concealer and place some under your eyes and on the bridge of your nose. When you put it under your eyes you automatically make it look like you got lots of sleep and when you put it on your nose it adds a nice glowy and dewy finish.

 Tip 3: No More Cakey Makeup

Nobody wants to look like they are wearing their entire makeup collection on their face, so if you look in the mirror and you see your foundation, concealer, bronzer, highlight, powder, blush, and contour powder all over you face, take a spray bottle filled with water and mist it over your face 3-5 times. This decreases the cakey look and adds a nice dewy, healthy finish.

Tip 4: Eat Healthy

Eating healthy is always good, so if you can, try to incorporate as many fruits and veggies into your diet as you can! You can even cheat and have fruit flavored yogurt as long as it is all natural.

Tip 5: Drink Up

Water has amazing properties that helps your skin and your entire body feel and look better.  So lay of the soda and drink some water! Try to drink as much as you can and I recommend carrying around a water bottle to school or work that way you don't have and excuse not to drink it!

Belle Blog Award

Hey guys! So I have some exciting news for you! I was nominated for the...

Thirteen, thank you so much for nominating me!

THE Rules:
1. Write three facts about yourself.
2. Answer the questions the previous blogger asked you.
3. Tag three other blogs.
4. Ask three new questions for the blogs.
And don't forget... Don't tag the blog who tagged you!

MY Facts:

1. I just started a YouTube channel! Its called AmourHannah<3
2. I am obsessed with the new One Direction album, Take Me Home! I am actually going to their concert on June 18th and am super excited!!
3. I cannot wait for Christmas! I won't allow myself to listen to Christmas music until the day after Thanksgiving, but I still can't help but thinking of how I am going to decorate my room, listen to the music, decorate the christmas tree, and eat the food!

THIRTEEN'S Questions:

1.What is your favorite fall trend? My favorite fall trend will probably have to be the shoes! I feel as though everyone is wearing combat boots or riding boots and I think they are all super cute. 
2. If you could have one superpower what would you choose and why? I had to think about this question for a while, but I think I would have to choose the power to fly because it has always been my dream to be able to fly with the birds and soar through the night sky (cheesy, I know) and i would also be able to get places faster, so that's a plus!
3. What is your favorite store and makeup product? Why? My favorite store is Target because it is insanely addicting and has everything from clothes to makeup to food to Christmas decorations! My favorite makeup product is my Maybelline Lumi-Touch  Illuminating Concealer because I fall victim to the horrendous under-eye circles, but I feel like this concealer really brightens up my face and I feel comfortable wearing only this and no other makeup!

MY Questions:
1. What is your favorite holiday and why?
2. Would you rather never wear makeup or never paint your nails? Why?
3. What is your favorite all-time trend (beauty or fashion)?

September Favorites

Hellooo! Today I am going to show you guys all the things I loved in September! I have some beauty products, some fashion favorites, and some random favorites! I hope you guys enjoy!

My first favorite is this tinted moisturizer from Neutrogena! It only gives a little bit of coverage, so if you don need more coverage than this is not for you. But it makes your skin glow and covers up most redness!

This mascara is my all-time favorite! It separates your lashes while making them seem fuller and longer!

This clinique eyeshadow duo is in the shade Chocolate Kiss and it is perfect for when you want a nice subtle wash of color! It is also a matte shadow, which at the moment, are my favorites!

This Burt's Bees' lip balm is one of my favorites! It smells like cherries and gives your lips a nice wash of color.

It looks very vibrant, but in reality it is pretty sheer!

This Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Pencil is great! It stays on throughout the day without smudging and making you look like a zombie.

During September I was loving button-up shirts and this one from  J.Crew is definitely my favorite! The pattern is actually little leaves, which I think is adorable!

This is my iPod case!!!!! Isn't it adorable?! It is the cutest little owl and I purchased it from target!

If you liked this post then head on over to YouTube and watch me talk about all of them, on my channel AmourHannah (the video will be up soon)! Hope you enjoyed!

Autumn Trend - Peter Pan Collar

One of my favorite automn trends that I have been seeing a lot of recently are peter pan collared shirts! The two I am going to show you are a little more on the summery side, but if you pair them under a sweater with the collar poking out, I'm positive it would keep you warm! I am on the lookout for some long sleeved collared shirts, so if you know any good places to find any, please leave a comment  below:)

This first one is from Forever 21 and it is gorgeous! It is a really nice flowy material with some beautiful buttons.

This second one is a lot more casual because it is a t-shirt material. The beading on the collar glams it up a bit! I purchased it at H&M.

Exciting News!! Feat. YouTube

As you may have guessed from the title... I am now a vlogger! Thats right! I took the big step and setup a channel on YouTube. I have always watched beauty gurus and thought how fun it would be to see my videos on YouTube and how I could share everything I knew about beauty and fashion with the world! My channel is called AmourHannah, which for those of you who don't know, it means LoveHannah in French. I thought of that name because I thought it would be cute to end my messages with Amour, Hannah. So I put it together and came up with my name! It would mean the world to me if you came and checked out my channel!!! I am not pressuring you to subscribe (or am I...), I would just like the moral support and maybe you could leave comments here OR on my channel. And if you do subscribe, then I will love you forever!! Thanks so much guys!
Hannah xoxo

P.S. I'm thinking of changing the name of my blog to Amour, Hannah to match my channel ,so if any of you know anything about that or have any opinions, please let me know!!!

NOTD: Autumn Hearts

Pinteresting: Top 2 Favs

So recently I have been doing a horrible job keeping up to date on here, so to buy me more time I am going to do a quick pinteresting post.
From right to left: Aly Raisman, Gabrielle Douglas, Jordyn Wieber, and McKayla Maroney.
The is a picture of the Fab Five (obviously one of them is missing) recreating the Beatles picture by walking on Abbey Road in London, England! This is something I have always wanted to do and it is so cool they were able to. 

I think this is sooo romantic! After you right the love note on the lock, you throw the key into the Siene (for those of you who don't know, its in Paris, France) so that it stays sealed forever! 

I will have a first week of school OOTW coming up, but for now I hope you enjoyed this!

This is soooo helpful! I had no idea these types of things even existed!

Hope you guys enjoyed!
