Opal Stevens' Beauty Blogger of the Week: Shianne


I'm very excited to announce this week's Beauty Blogger of the Week - Shianne! Make sure to follow her blog Invention of Being Her


How did you get started blogging?
Well last year I started to blog, I got the inspiration from other fashion and beauty blogs I followed, and I thought if they can do it, then what’s stopping me? Also my friend told me she created her own blog just for herself, and that gave me the idea to do it even more. My blog isn’t to make a profit off of or to have millions of followers, it is just for me to post my thoughts and fashion and beauty products I’m into.


Beauty trend you love?
I don’t really follow trends, but I like volume mascaras that makes great thick eyelashes that make your eyes pop (is that a trend lol) and crimson color lipstick. Also I like black eyeliner which is something I can never live without.


Favorite fashion trend?
I’m also not really up with fashion trends, up until like 9th grade I was a major tomboy. But I’m out of that phase, I do like the hipster like fashion places like Urban Outfitters has a lot of clothes that I like, but is very expensive - not good for an unemployed teenager (lol).


Favorite Health tip? 
Exfoliate every day, whether it is your face or your whole body. I wash my face every day with organic products like Oueen Helene’s Oatmeal’n Honey Natural Facial Scrub. Also when exercising pace yourself and make sure you want to lose weight for your own reasons and not someone else’s, don’t want to be a certain weight because someone told you that was beautiful. Motivate yourself and your body!


What are some of your favorite beauty products?
Maybelline The Falsies Mascara probably my favorite beauty product, I love big eyes and in order to enhance my eyes I have to also enhance my eyelashes and Falsies mascara works wonderfully. It doesn't clump like other mascaras and has a two sided brush for bottom and top eyelashes.


Eyeliners My favorite beauty product, like the falsies mascara I can't live with out eyeliner. I'm not big on bright colored ones I strictly stick to black,brown, and white. I don't stick with any brand, I just choose ones that I like. 

Tan & Brown Eye Shadow which are really the only colors I wear, I'm not big on bright colored eye shadows. So I stick with neutral colors.I don't wear eye shadow a lot, but when I do those are the usual colors that I use.

Kabuki Face Brush This is my favorite brush to use when applying powder foundations, its really soft on skin, and doesn't harm skin no matter the skin texture.

Revlon Crimson Lipstick My favorite color to use,I like dark colors for lips and its gives your lips a fuller look. I don't apply a lot I add some to my lips and them blend it in with my finger. But its a great color to use, I wear it on special occasions because I'm not a lipstick girl.

Steam Designs Etsy Shop Review & Giveaway (CLOSED)




Many items used in the production of Steam Designs jewelry pieces were sad and lonely as they thought life was over and they would serve no purpose. Now they flock to this etsy shop's owner from all over the world for a second chance, taking on a new life as Steampunk jewelry. 


I'm just amazed at how beautiful and unique all the pieces at Steam Designs are - I've never seen anything like it. Steampunk has become a very popular trend within the fashion and beauty community. As described by Urban Dictionary, Steampunk is a lifestyle subculture of individuals whose style is marked by taking modern day gadgets appearing as though they are a century out of date. I especially love the jewelery pieces at Steam Designs that are made up of clock parts. Check out some of their amazing items:





I got to review the ahmozing earrings and ring below and I absolutely positively love 'em! They are definitely a conversation piece. The gold angel wing earrings are really fun and are clip on so they stay in place. The clock pieces in the watch movement ring are really cool and unique. Definitely check out Steam Designs on etsy!


Giveaway 
Would you like to win a free pair of Angel Wing Earrings and a Steampunk Watch Movement Ring from Steam Designs ($79 value - pictured above)?! One lucky Opal Stevens' reader will win! This giveaway ends on Monday, July 4th.

Nautilus Maritime Etsy Shop Review and Giveaway (CLOSED)

Maritime culture had fascinated Audra of Nautilus Maritime since childhood, but it was not until her teenage years -when she first began working on the brig Lady Washington- that she became familiar with the skills of the traditional sailor known as marlingspike seamanship. She found that it was an art as rich in history as it was in variability, and was the perfect combination of decoration and practicality. She continues to work -off and on- aboard the Lady Washington, where she furthers her studies in marlingspike seamanship, and ashore she seeks to produce authentic pieces of maritime art that are both original and true to tradition.


The beautiful pieces you'll find in Audra's shop will have you in awe. I fell in love with all her pieces, from her simple buttons to her intricately knotted bracelets and necklaces. Audra is extremely talented and amazing at what she does. Here are just a few of the items you'll find in her etsy shop:






Audra also sent me one of her beautiful knotted 'Cringle' bracelets to review. The colors of the beads and the knotting of the bracelet really makes it an amazing and unique piece. I can tell that the bracelet is durable and well made. Make sure to check out Nautilus Maritime on etsy and facebook!

Spunky Junky Review


The woman behind Spunky Junky - Halsey - describes herself as a mom/workaholic by day and a crafter/mom by night who started crafting after grad school. Eventually this fun, part-time hobby grew into a successful etsy shop full of amazing hand crafted necklaces, head bands, and earrings. Here are just a few of her wonderful creations:



I got the lime chrysanthemum earrings pictured above. I absolutely love them! These earrings come in so many great and vibrant colors it was extremely hard for me to pick just one pair. You should definitely check out Halsey's etsy shop here!

TotalBeauty.com - The Best and Worst Celebrity Perfumes

Perfume pop quiz: Who created the celebrity fragrance model? (Cue the "Jeopardy" theme song.) Give up? Answer: Elizabeth Taylor in 1988 (source). Yup. Nowadays, literally everyone and their mother has their own perfume (or line of beauty products), and you can't pick up a magazine or drive down Sunset Blvd. without seeing a scantily clad starlet, spooning or straddling her life-size, eponymous fragrance. So the question is then, do all of these celeb perfumes stink or are some shockingly wearable?

See the best and worst celebrity fragrances now.
