The little girl in frilly socks within you, channeled in your beauty routine.

The days of frilly socks, tu-tus on a Wednesday & polka dot Mary-Jane flats may be long behind me, but these style trends are making a huge comeback, with girly girl fashion on the forefront of even the most tom-boyish of chicks. What else is on trend? Letting the little girl of your past be your muse when you’re getting beautified.

Treat Soft Candy Pink Buttercream Old Fashioned Jumbo Tinted Lip Balm: They’re not kidding when they say JUMBO sized. The whopping huge application gives you a barely-there tinted application while the flavor of vanilla buttercream frosting/cupcakes & cotton candy envelops you in to a sea of merry-go rounds & tea-cup rides.

Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Collide: Pretty in pink, with a pop, you’ll channel the days of twirling your hair, gossiping about how hot Johnny looked in gym glass, how you’d like to take him behind the bleachers, etc. etc. Now, this color is as beach worthy as it gets, a fit for any girly girl.

Bite Beauty Lip Rouge in Geranium: This combo lip/cheek pot is one of my new purse essentials, similarly to that first lipstick I got from my cousin as a little girl.  Popping a bit of the dewy formula on my lips & cheeks mid-day honestly taking care of my run-down, maybe hungover beauty woes, making me feel 100% better about facing the rest of the day.  [$22]
