It’s like having a personal stylist shop you for once a month! Here’s the best news: Rocksbox gave me a coupon code for all my readers! For a free month of Rocksbox!!! It’s normally $19 a month, but only the best for you all! The coupon code is: juliapoodlemagxoxo redeemed at  www.Rocksbox.com! Everyone do it!!!!!!! For prom! For formal! For your job interviews!

Strawberries and Sunshine: Picnic for Four!

       Hello beauties! It is finally warm and sunny out and I am stuck indoors with International Politics textbooks and the lovely essays by Berkley. Thankfully, my lovely Kappa sisters and I made the time for a super chic picnic! For a warm and sparkling picnic, bring fresh fruits, an easy, breakable bread and different jams! We brought madelines, grapes, and Pellegrino! Break out the nautical dresses, hot pink lips, pink accessories, and flowing florals. Also, everyone should go check out my sister Irene’s blog!  http://irene-anna.blogspot.com Back to studying! Xo, Julia

DIY Glitter Easter Eggs!

Happy Easter and Passover! I just wanted to share a quick and cute way to decorate eggs with a glittery fabric (I had an old glitter ribbon), scissors, nail polish, and acrylic paint!! 1. First I just painted the half the eggs in solid colors with acrylic paint and let dry for 10 minutes. 2. I painted the other half with glitzy gold nail polish! Also dried in 10 minutes. 3. Use nail polish on acrylic eggs and vice versa to make simple polka dots! 4. While that’s still wet, take the glittery fabric/ribbon/bath bomb/anything with glitter (or literal glitter in a tube if you’re a real person) and scrape with the edge of scissors. The glitter will fall on the eggs and stick to the polish! Overall this took me like 20 minutes and they came out beautifully!! Happy Easter and passover, and happy Spring for everyone else!!
