OOTD + Chat about Charleston

Hello everyone!

I hope you guys had a great Labor Day weekend. I went to Charleston, South Carolina for the weekend and it was amazing. Have any of you guys been there? It’s a really cute beach town in the south. My friend and I visited the Boone Plantation, where part of The Notebook was filmed and where Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds had their wedding. It’s so beautiful. Lots of history!

It was a hot and humid day, so I wore a light dress. It was a maxi dress, it was sheer with a short slip underneath. I purchased it from the Abercrombie and Fitch outlets from the clearance section for $25. Such a great deal!

The entire plantation was littered with Spanish moss and I became obsessed. It’s so gorgeous!

This is the main house, so pretty! Recognize it from The Notebook?

Not only did we tour the plantation, we went to a couple delicious restaurants. My favorite one was Magnolia’s. Check out that Charleston Crab Cake dish below. It was delicious, the okra was so tasty too! It is a little pricey, but worth it!

Another place we went to twice, was Page’s Okra Grill. I got the flounder entree and the second time I got their signature fried chicken. It was absolutely delicious! I’m definitely going back next time! The prices were decent and you get a lot of food, enough for leftovers!

We also explored the downtown area, which was beautiful! Check out my instagram for some neighborhood pics! I wore another Abercrombie and Fitch Outlet clearance dress for this outing as well. What can I say, I have a type of dress? It is a beautiful off white see-through maxi dress, with slits on the side and a slip underneath. I felt like a fancy beach gal.

That’s about it for my fun filled holiday weekend! Just looking at those food pictures is making me hungry! Thanks for reading!

FALL DIY: Flower Wall Hanging

Hello everyone! I wanted to share this fall DIY! Feel free to check out my video on it below! What you’ll need: fake flowers (just the flowers, not with stems), thread, needle, a branch, and nails or any way you prefer to get the branch to the wall.

All you have to do is thread the needle through the flowers. I pushed the needle through the plastic part of the flower, with the green part from the stem. It’s hard too push it through, so I used a glass bottle to push it in, to avoid hurting my fingers.

After I threaded my first row of flowers through, I cut the thread and double-knotted it to the branch. I repeated this step four times. My pattern was doing four flowers on one row, five on the other, and so on. Feel free to do whatever pattern you would like!

After I finished all of my flower rows, I used two small nails to hang the branch against the wall. This was the final result below. I love how it came out! Perfect for the upcoming fall season! Let me know what you guys think!

Eye Buy Direct Video Review

 

Hello all!

I created a Youtube video on my Eye Buy Direct experience and my first purchase. If you prefer to read about it, here’s my previous post on it.

I hope you guys enjoy and subscribe! Feel free to ask any questions or share your Eye Buy Direct experiences.

Eye Buy Direct Review

Hello everyone!

I am a person who tends to wear contacts every single day. For anyone who can relate, I’m sure you’ve heard your optometrist say “you should give your eyes some breathing time, and wear your glasses once a week”. Now listen, I think we all know how much glasses with prescriptions from our doctor’s office or places like LensCrafters can cost. Usually in the three-digit range, even with insurance.

I wanted to find a different, more affordable option. That’s when I found the company Eye Buy Direct. I remember telling a cashier at Forever 21 I liked her glasses, and she had mentioned them. I’m so glad I took a chance and checked out their website! And no, I’m not sponsored or anything. I bought these myself and this is my honest review.

The website it pretty easy to navigate and is has an easy layout to work with. You can filter out many things such as the color, price, shape of the frames, and the size. My favorite feature is that you can “try on” the glasses by uploading a picture of yourself. It gives a preview of what you will look like with those frames, and I found it to be a decent estimation.

After hours of searching and reading reviews, I decided to purchase the Hepburn frames in the color Ivory Tortoise. I added my prescription, anti-glare, UV protection, and a brown case for and extra five dollars.

They arrived right when they were supposed to and came in the super chic and minimal black box. The case I purchased is brown leather (definitely faux), but it looks so classy and simple.

The glasses themselves were exactly as pictured. They sit well on my face, but the company also sends an adjustment tool with your package, so you can adjust it if necessary. Also, quick tip, you can go into any LensCrafter’s and get your glasses adjusted for free.

I love the style of these glasses. The ivory tortoise design is professional, yet fashionable, adding a nice touch. It’s perfect for work, but can also go with casual looks. Before these, my other glasses were a tiny rectangle shape, with an all black frame. I didn’t like it and only wore it at home. I’ve definitely been wearing my new glasses out and about, and have gotten a lot of compliments on them.

So, price-wise, these are amazing. The frames were $40 and with all of the things I added, the total came to $62.95. But, EyeBuyDirect seems to have a lot of deals and have a lot of social media promoters. I checked their Instagram and saw that on their story, they showed someone’s promotion link with a code. I used the code and got $15 off my purchase. I chose regular shipping which was $5.95, so my overall total was $53.16. That is a great price compared to the typical retail glass-wear stores.

They have a lot of different style options, with varying prices. Most of the ones I saw were from $22-$70. I think it has something for everyone, they also have sunglasses as well.

Let me know what you guys thinks and if you have a favorite place to purchase your glasses! Thanks so much for reading! Follow me on Instagram and Twitter at AmandaSushma. Also, check out my video review on these glasses here.

Loft Haul (Video) | AmandaSushma

Hello everyone!

Sorry for taking a little sabbatical from the blog! But now I’m back and ready to share some fun outfits, makeup, and other awesome things with you guys!

I made a Loft Haul video so you guys can see all the items I received. I really like Loft because it’s one of the first “adult” stores that caters to my size. I’m petite, so it’s hard to find affordable work pants and tops that fit correctly, but Loft has it. I also like that it carries sizes for plus sizes and taller women, so everyone should be able to find cute things from them.

Thanks for watching! Let me know which items you liked!

Romwe Haul (Video)

Hello everyone,

Spring is here and we’re almost into summer! I wanted some new clothes for the season, while also not spending too much. That’s why I decided to check out Romwe. Romwe is one of those sites you see advertised all the time on Facebook and Instagram. I figured I’d check it out because they usually have a picture of something really cute, with $11 next to it.

So, I ended up purchasing some items for the website. I bought mostly clothes, which I do try on in the video, and some random accessories as well.

Check out my video below and let me know what you think!

Amazon Five-Shelf Stand

Hello everyone!

I decided it was time for me to invest in a shelf for my bathroom because my counter was overflowing with makeup products. I was searching Amazon for a inexpensive, but cute shelf and came across this one, sold by Furinno.

If you would like to see my video where I actually build it, click here.

The stand contains five shelves, which can hold fifteen pounds each. The directions do recommend that heavier items should be placed on the lower shelves. It also came with a cable tie and nail, to nail the stand on the wall. When I was reading the Amazon reviews, people said that when they place the stand on carpet, it isn’t too stable so the cable tie comes in handy. I was setting mine on the tile of my bathroom floor, so I didn’t need the cable tie.

I chose the beech shelves with the white poles/legs. They do have a variety of colors, so if you don’t like what I choose, there are more options for you. Also, note that the poles are plastic.

It was fairly easy to set up. If you do purchase this, be sure that you use the shelve with the four-holes as the bottom and not the others (only one has four-holes). It took me about twenty minutes. I will say, the holes on the shelves are circular, while the poles are more oval, so it was difficult trying to push and turn them in there, but I got it eventually.

Overall, I spend about $19 on this stand and I’m happy with what I received. It fits the look of my bathroom perfectly. The style of this stand is perfect for corners, so if you need to fill up a corner whether it’s in your living room or bathroom, this may be for you.

Let me know if you have any questions or comments! Thanks for reading!
