Links We Love: Back to School Inspiration

Richel Newborg, Aug 14, 2014 - Comment

I know that heading back to school is not top of your list right now unless you are a mom, and having the kids go back to school is a reclaiming of your freedom. We know for most of us it means tests and studying but it also means new friends, new social activities and generally new stuff like clothing, make up and gear. We found some great back to school beauty inspiration from some of our favorite bloggers here at Chippmunk. Here's this weeks "Links We Love" with a little bit of a back to school twist. Just remember there is inspiration out there, you just have to know where to look for it. Alexandrea Garza, YouTube Vlogg/Instagram Alexandrea is a professional make up artist as well as a blogger/vlogger. She has a ton of YouTube videos that are perfect for everyone no matter what your beauty journey is.  Plus she's got great tips that are really "mom-friendly" a.k.a. they don't take a lot of time to learn/master. So if you are a mom looking to remake your mommy style (like ditching those yoga pants and throwing on a little lip gloss before you hit the carpool drop-off) Alexandrea can get you on track for getting your mommy chic on. We also love her video on "Balayage Ombree Highlights at Home" because it is really budget friendly. If your hair needs a little love, check it out and tell us what you think. DIY beauty, especially in the form of a video like this can come in really handy when you are trying to save some cash. We prefer videos since then you can actually "see" if you love the end product (and that it worked). Dana from "A Little Seersucker Sass, Blogger Dana has lots of information on fashion, beauty and being a college girl. We love her light, friendly style and all of the great pictures she puts up in each of her posts. She also has the inside scoop on getting into a sorority, so if this is your plan for this school year, you might want to give it a read and share it with your friends. Elle Leary, Blogger/YouTube Vlogg/Instagram/Pinterest Elle is a makeup artist and has a blog filled with beautiful images and she has a great portfolio which includes work with Teen Vogue, Bazaar and Foam. She often works with young Hollywood starlets so her looks are always filled with trending products and colors. Elle has a great YouTube channel and we have spent a couple of hours looking though her stuff and giving her tips and tutorials a try!  She has great tips, especially for those that love celebrity looks so make sure you check it out. These are perfect for those wanting to refine their look and get some great tips for back to school. We hope you enjoy this weeks post, and if you missed last weeks post you can check it out now, too! Read full post
