Hello everyone... I hope that you're all having a good day! I always mention a certain concept to people, and whenever I do, they always say something along the lines of "Oh! I totally know what you mean, didn't know everyone had those!" So I thought that I should do a whole blog post on it! Here we go...
Let's say it's Sunday night. The weekend is practically over, and on Saturday you had gone to the mall with some friends. You bought a few new pieces of clothes and now you're laying out your clothes for tomorrow, and you're super excited to go to school and show off your new clothes.
It doesn't even need to be new clothes, it just has to have some sort of special element about it. Maybe you're wearing bright red lipstick and it makes you really confident. Or maybe you're wearing those boots that have heels, and you don't normally wear heels to school or work. Something is just special. So when you get to school on Monday, you feel fierce. Beautiful. Like everyone has got their eyes on you. It is such a good feeling.
You feel powerful and fresh and perfect. And no one can touch that. No one can change it. You'll feel like that the whole day. It sounds stupid, but it's true: you're more confident, happier, nicer, and you probably look amazing. I'm not the only one who feels like this sometimes... am I? I'm wearing one of those outfits today, and I just really do feel powerful and fierce. It could sound conceited, but it's true. I don't mean to sound full of myself, but if you really think about it, I'm sure you can understand what I'm talking about.
So when you're wearing an outfit like that, you feel so amazing. The real question is: how can we achieve this feeling everyday? If you wore the same type of perfect outfit everyday then eventually you and the people around you would get used to it and it wouldn't be special anymore.
I want to feel magical and powerful like this everyday. So here's what I'm planning to do. First of all, I'm going to start laying out my clothes the night before. I wake up in the morning as a zombie, so picking out a good outfit in the morning is next to impossible. But if I lay everything out the night before, then it both saves time in the morning and ensures that I'll have made great choices! Next, I'm going to wear different types of outfits over the week. I tend to just lean toward wearing jeans, boots, and a tee-shirt everyday. But the littlest things can make the difference. Just wearing a skirt instead of jeans or a blouse instead of a tee can really switch it up!
Another tip that I have is to not waste it all on one outfit. Let's say you have a new pair of boots. Whenever I first wear a new pair of shoes to school I honestly feel like I'm on cloud nine. The rest of the outfit could be completely boring, but one new or great item makes me feel amazing. So let's say you have the perfect outfit and two pairs of shoes that work with it. A new pair and an one old. Wear the old pair and save the new ones for a day when you don't have an exciting outfit! It will just make sure that you have even more days when you feel this energy and power because you have the perfect outfit.
If you guys ever have those days when you feel like you're in an amazing outfit, then snap a picture, email it to me, and I'll show it in a video! I hope you understand what I mean by this. And I hope that I don't sound crazy haha. Anyway, I hope you liked reading, and if you have any ideas for new blog posts, feel free to share them! Yay for more consistent blogging! I love you all, i really do. Have a nice day! Be happy :)
PS: Waking up doesn't mean your dreams are over, it means it's time to make them come true :)
Hey guys. So today I decided that I would blog about knock offs. So in your city, I am sure that there are places where you can go to buy fake products, shoes, clothes, and accessories. I never really understood this, but if you like the way something looks, and you don't want to pay $700 for it, then why is it frowned upon to buy a fake?
There are many fashion related things that are made faux. Shoes, handbags, makeup, clothing, and much more! So the question is:
"WHY is it frowned upon to buy something that is fake?"
I have heard many opinions on this, but today I want to hear YOURS! Comment on this post or send me an email telling me your opinion on this. I will feature EVERY opinion in a video coming up in a few weeks, so leave your YouTube username in the comment so that I can give you credit! If you wish to be kept anonymous, then you can just tell me that in the comment or email!
Thank you everyone! And keep checking back daily for more reader included questions and and blogs for you all!

So I was home sick yesterday, and between sleeping and puking, I watched like 20 episodes of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" on Netflix. I never had much interest in this show before, but I recently finished watching "Gossip Girl" and "Ugly Betty", so I decided to try something new! I almost got through the end of the 3rd season, and I am hooked! Now - how does this relate to my fashion/beauty blog? Well, let me explain!
First of all, all of the Kardashians wear lip gloss. In all three seasons that I watched yesterday, I hardly ever saw them wearing a lipstick... it was ALWAYS gloss. So now guess what?! I am hooked back on gloss! They never wear pinks or real colors, but they tend to wear opaque nudes. This is something that I have seen trending this autumn/winter. Normally, dark, matte lipsticks are in for this time of year... but not anymore! In magazines and on TV I have been seeing so much gloss! And it is not ALL credited to the Kardashians... but definitely some of it is because of them!
Another thing that it trending is duochromatic purses (handbags with a sheen). Yes - "duochromatic" IS a word. This is something else that the Kardashian girls have been influencing society with! I have been seeing SO many of them! Seriously! Take a trip to your local shopping mall, and look around! You will see so many purses like this! And generally, light greens, and neutral colors are in...
So those are some trends that are "kool"! Get it?! With a "K"? LOL... I know... it is a bad joke. Anyways, if YOU have been inspired by any celebrities and want me to do a blog post on them, then just comment on this blog post and tell me about them! I love hearing from you guys! Oh - and if ANYONE has ANY idea what lipgloss Kim wears, then PLEASE comment! I am obsessed with it!

PS: A lot of people were asking me why I made the main color of my website black, because I normally like things to be so bright and colorful. And here is my reason: I spend a LOT of time on the internet, and am starting to feel a bit guilty about my ecological footprint. So I decided that if the background is black, then it saves energy, and that made me feel good! <3
Okay. So I live in "L.A.", and it poured rain ALL day yesterday. I started off my morning normally and straightened my hair. This was an obvious mistake. The entire day I was hiding under my umbrella and my hood to attempt to keep my hair straight.
Here is what I wish I would have done.
Hair. Start off by taking a shower the night before. You want to use a deep conditioner because that will keep your hair from frizzing in the high humidity. Once you are out, you will want to quickly brush out and part your hair. I would recommend a deep side part. Then take a hair gel or - my personal favorite - spray gel. You will want to scrunch your hair together into a messy bun. Let it dry in the bun, and then carefully, let it out. Apply the gel all over the hair and a very fine amount onto the top of your head. Don't use too much or it might look greasy! Then braid your hair into one long braid with the gel intact. And you are done!
Clothes. First of all, a day when it rains is NOT a day when you should be wearing shorts or a skirt. Wear blue jeans that are dark wash, because that way when they get wet, the water won't show. Wear whatever kind of shirt you want and try to wear some sort of sweatshirt or coat with a hood. This will save you in the end.
Makeup. I recommend wearing a tinted moisturizer instead of powder or liquid foundation, because that will not droop off your face if it gets wet. Of course wear waterproof mascara and eyeliner, and wear cream shadows instead of powder. But make sure that you use an eyeshadow primer so that the shadows don't end up creasing. Try something daring like a red or berry lip. That will immediately brighten the day.
Accessories. As far as shoes and accessories go, wear shoes that you don't really care about or rain boots. The only accessory you might need is a scarf, and an umbrella which is a must-have!
That is really it, so if you have any other questions, or comments on this then don't be afraid to leave them in the comments section or find a way to contact me through the "Contact Me" page on my official website.
Hey guys! So I am getting back into fashion! I was never "out" of fashion, but now I am totally obsessed with it again! So here are some pictures of my outfit this morning!
During every season, there are always trends. They can either be fashion or beauty. Here is what is in for this summer!
The fishtail braid is a classy braid that you can wear casually or dressed up. Normally, braids would be in for spring, but this year, they are very in for summer! If you need to learn how to do a fishtail braid, then there will be a video below this post explaining it!
Thick brows! Thick brows are really in this summer! They make you look more youthful, and just naturally beautiful! So try not to over-pluck!
Orange-Red lipstick. I know that I love wearing red lipstick, but it can be a bit harsh during the summer. So just wear a red lipstick with some orange in it! I have a tutorial coming up with this lip look!
Highlighting! So for those girls out there who are super pale, I have some good news for you! So you know how highlighters normally don't show up on your skin because it is already so light? Well once you have a bit of a summer glow, use a shimmery highlighter on your skin! Who says you can't look nice and dewy during summer? There will be a video below on how to highlight!
Strappy sandals! So everyone wears flip flops during summer... but those can be a bit too casual, so just get some strappy sandals, and you will be set!
That is really all for now! Send me a picture of you wearing one of those trends at: email@example.com!
This is my blog! For every bit of randomness that comes out of my head... read on :)
