This is the 3rd styling assignment! The theme was boudoir and I think I captured it. I was inspired as I was scrolling through tumblr and saw this beautiful picture of Samantha Barks in Cabaret. When I think of boudoir I couldn’t help but think of how sexy and classy it can make a woman look.
I honestly love Lana Del Rey with all my heart. Her music is fantastic(listening to Born to Die:Paradise Edition now) and her style and makeup are beautiful. Here are tons of pictures, a makeup tutorial for her main look and 3 style guides: Continue reading →
There was lots of snow this morning so I had a delayed opening! But because of the snow I wasn’t able to wear the outfit I planned to wear So instead I put together this outfit quickly and it was comfortable and it was okay if I got rain and snow on my boots. Today I wore a babydoll top with a gray cami underneath, a blue scarf, blue jeans and black Ugg boots. Continue reading →
I’ve been looking into fashion styling a lot as a career lately. And to be a stylist, you have to have a certain set of skills. I’m trying to build these skills here by doing these “styling assignments”.
Every week(hopefully), there will be a new assignment. It will be a word or a phrase or an idea. My/your job is to build on it and create a collage/mood board. Then shape it into a photoshoot. This week’s assignment is purity. The question is how would you style and direct a photoshoot with the theme of purity. This is my very messy mood board:
Purity took on alot of meanings to me. I thought of innocence, weddings(dresses and rings), babies/children, white, water, nature/natural, love, and angels. I tried to put picture representation of all these things in my mood board/collage.
I guess we didn’t die this year so it’s time for New Years Resolutions! The second half of this year has been amazing for me. I learned so much about myself and gained so much confidence. I have accomplished things that I dreamed about months ago. I’ve grown and everyday when I look in mirror I stare and think when did I become this person. With this new found confidence, I now can pursue my dreams without caring if anyone looks at me weird. I will make 2013 the best year of my life, hopefully as good as this one or better. Here are my goals for 2013: Continue reading →
For winter, I love copper, gold and brown eyeshadows. And I found this awesome cheap palette that has all of these colors. I will have a review up soon but it is my favorite palette for fall/winter. This is one of the many simple looks you can do with only 3 colors. I know in the morning I am tired as heck and don’t want to be using 50 different colors so I came up with this simple easy and pretty look that can be worn everyday for school and work.

For the past few months I’ve haven’t been posting on this blog and I need to tell you guys why and how I plan on changing that.
When I started this blog, I was very overweight and couldn’t fit into any of my clothes. I also had no self confidence so I refused to wear makeup out of the house. So I used this blog as an outlet. I would post all the makeup and fashion looks that I wished I could wear and would spend all my time on this blog. I refused to go out and would only spend time making posts. I eventually completely isolated myself.
In the summer when I began to lose weight, I started posting less. A lot of stuff was going on in my life and I didn’t have time and when I did I was either working out or just playing around on the computer.
My confidence also began to rise as I lost weight and I started to love myself. I started wearing clothes that didn’t before and I was so happy. I enjoyed my vacation after losing 13 lbs on Beach Body Bootcamp. And when I came back it was time to prepare for school. I went shopping with my mother and bought jeans and shirts and it was an amazing experience.
When school started, I wore what I wanted. I wore makeup that I liked and changed up my outfits. I didn’t need this blog as an outlet anymore. I can go out with confidence and wear the outfits I use to post on this blog.
But without this blog, I don’t think I’d be able to lose the weight and be this happy.
So now for how this blogs gonna change. I’m gonna post more since gymnastics is just about over. I also think I’m gonna do another personal challenge as I try to lose the last 20 lbs. I want make more fashion, makeup and health and fitness post but I need your ideas.
What do you wanna see on this blog? Leave any fashion makeup, health and fitness post you would like to see and I will try my best to make them happen!
Again thank you guys for all your help and support. I love you all!!
