Deep Clean Scrub

I am no dermatologist but this one product has improved my skin so drastically I had to tell all of you about it. This deep cleansing scrub is powerful and gently buffs away at acne as well as dead skin cells. I can definitely see a difference after using it for only a week. My skin is not only clearer, but it's also glowing! My slight acne on my cheeks completely disappeared. Neutrogena is a wonderful line of skincare products and they are all very reasonably priced. I definitely recommend that if you have normal to oily skin that you go and get this and try it out yourself! The Neutrogena Deep Clean Invigorating Foaming Scrub cost me $7! You can get it at a drugstores such as Target or even Walmart.

Designer Shoes Anyone?

When trying to find the cutest shoes and best bargains, sometimes you have to get away from your comfort zone. I haven't always been a fan of Old Navy, just because I personally like to have more unique items, but when I saw these shoes...
I was won over, guess I'll be going back for more soon! These gorgeous sandals were exactly what I was looking for, and the best part?
They cost me under $20 with all the quality that a pricey shoe would have!

Aishwarya Rai Post Baby

Aishwarya Rai looked absolutely stunning in a gold sari at the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS shindig in Cannes, France. Rai has been bashed and criticized recently about not losing her baby weight quick enough. Please, she has the title "most beautiful woman in the world". I think she's fine with a few extra pounds. Obviously this gorgeous girl isn't going anywhere! I definitely loved the sari. It suited her and she looked great! I think she definitely made her critics look ridiculous. Nobody can rock a sari like Aishwarya!

Buy a Good BRA

One thing I can't stress enough, is buying a good bra. It may not be cheap, but it will help give you shape, and hold everything together. Buying a bra should be an investment, not a cheap fix. A good bra will cost you about $50, and trust me it'll be worth it once summer hits and you want to wear all those low cut dresses. Without a good bra, you'll look unshapely and make even the best clothing look unfitted. I recommend Dream Angels Push Up by Victoria's Secret. Although they have many beautiful colors, it's best to buy a nude one because you can wear it with absolutely anything and it won't show through. This is a bra every single woman can (and should) wear.

Who am I? Well for starters I'm Belle! I'm a twenty-something living in the Queen city. For those that don't know where that is, Charlotte, North Carolina, home of the abundant crocs trend. I'm a complete newbie to the blogging world but I one day hope to blog and write for some very fashionable magazines. I love fashion, coffee and everything pretty.

This blog is called seven twenty-5 because that is the minimum wage in North Carolina. I realize that many girls, just like me, and want to be stylish on a lower income. I"ll also be explaining what I think is worth saving and spending on and what you can expect to get out of your purchases.

In this blog I will be discussing everything I see in the fashion and beauty world with an open mind and an honest opinion. I've always wanted to make fashion and beauty my life, and I've finally decided to chase my dreams and do just that. I hope you'll stay with me while I discover the stylish world around me!


MAC Foundation

My whole life (which began at 15 when I was allowed to wear makeup) I have been looking for a foundation to match my skin tone. Finding a foundation has always been difficult because of my ethnic skin, being that I am half Mexican, and half Ethiopian. I have always wished for a perfect match and I finally found one, with MAC prolongwear foundation shade NC 40. I am so shocked at how flawless and clear my skin looks. It looks like a magic eraser went over my face! Needless to say, I am definitely going to be a loyal MAC customer from now on.
