Free People's Intimates Lookbook: About a Girl

Free People Intimately Free Lookbook

"About a Girl," Free People's new lookbook, makes laying around in bed all morning look so much more glamorous than it sounds. Sunlight streaming through the windows, crisp white linens, and of course, beautiful intimates.

But seriously, the Intimately Free People label is full of great layering pieces that can be paired with summer sheers and fall favorites. Delicate bras and feminine slips meet boyshorts and lacey hipsters. Personal favorites include the Meadows of Lace Slip, and the Eyelet Boyshort. The boyshort would be a great addition under any flirty dress, and the slip is sheer beauty. Just imagine yourself wearing its lacey perfection with an oversized cardigan. All while holding a cup of coffee in your hands adorned with too many rings. Can it get any more perfect?

This romantic collection features undergarments that are so beautiful, you may just find yourself wearing these slips as dresses, and the camis as "going out" tops. And let's not kid ourselves, we're totally eating up these dreamy pictures tracing her outline with phrases like, "wanna be my lover," and "I saw you in the faded light." Cheers Free People, we're falling in love all over again.

Pinter-Test: Does Vinegar Really Make Your Manicure Last Longer?


Pinterest: Does it work? Vinegar and nail polish

Each week, we put a different claim found on Pinterest to the test (hence, Pinter-test! Get it?!)

While some pins seem too good to be true (and sometimes they are), many of the tips actually work! As I pinned my heart away, my chipped nails seemed extra prominent when reading this trick:

"Wipe your fingernails with vinegar before applying polish. It dries the nail to help polish stick better."

To test this out, I used five different brands of nail polishes. I applied the polish to bare nails on my left hand, while applying the vinegar and polish to my right hand.


My nails before


After 5 days:


Swiping nails with vinegar before applying nail polish helps it last longer.


My left hand had a significant amount of chipping, while my right hand had barely any! I did notice the purple polish on my right hand thinned out a bit, but it didn't chip. Overall, I was very happy with the results. With such a crazy schedule, I will definitely be using this trick to minimize the number of times I have to paint my nails! Give it a try and let me know if it works for you!
