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 :)
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.
Before I do the outfit for Saturday, I want to say a few things. The "15 Days of Hair" has been completed, which means that hair sections will be back in the outfit blogs, and Nail sections will be gone for the time being. Also, I got a ton of NEW makeup last night, so I will be doing a review on all of the products (Covergirl Cosmetics) soon. The last thing that I want to talk about before I do the blog, is that there is a new contest in the "Contests" page. This one is for a totally free, brand new iDog! Many people have been entering! One person entered 11 times (this is the person who won the last contest)! Anyone can win! Oh, and the more times you enter, the greater chance you have of winning. Enter as many times as you want! Oh, and most people have been entering through the contact form at the bottom of the "Home" page. Now I will do the outfit.
Tomorrow is a Saturday, and I am going to do a "weekend" look. I will be going to see a movie with one of my friends, and I want to look: relaxed, pretty, boho, funky, sophisticated, and still casual. You will need a pair of skinny jeans. These can be: acid wash, dark wash, black, jeggings, or just regular blue jeans! You will need to have a large tee- shirt. My tee- shirt will be saying: "LOVE YOUR EARTH". You will also need to have a sweater of sweatshirt, because it can still get cold, even though it is summer!
Accessories. To make my look a bit more boho, I will be wearing a bunch of bangles and bracelets on one of my wrists. I might also wear a silky scarf which will make me look a bit more relaxed.
Shoes. I will be wearing a pair of Converse. Any color is okay, because Converse themselves are totally relaxed, so the color does not matter!
Makeup. I really want to try out my new products, so all of the products will be incorporated in the makeup. You will need to first cleanse your face, and then apply concealer to all places that need it. Next, apply foundation or powder. I will be using a tinted moisturizer which is also okay. Afterwards, you will need to put on some very light brown eyeshadow. This will look natural, but still give you some color. Then, curl your eyelashes. Next, apply some: brown, black-brown, or clear mascara. The mascara should be the volumizing kind, not the lengthening type. Afterwards, apply liquid eyeliner to the top part of your eyes. Then, apply pencil eyeliner to the bottom part of your eyes. Next, apply some blush to add a bit of rosiness to your cheeks. Afterwards, put some chapstichk on your lips (Softlips is okay too). Lastly, dab on some lip gloss, and your makeup is done!
Hair. For hair, you will need to take a shower, and then either blow dry your hair straight, or use a flat iron. After that, make a side part. The straight hair will make you look relaxed, and the side part will make you look sophisticated!
Questions. I know that this has been a long blog, so there will have to be some questions! If you do have questions, then either: facebook, twitter, email, comment, fill out the contact form on the home page, or aim me!
Tomorrow is a Wednesday, and we are going to be doing an earthy look. This is great for summer because it is warm, but will make you look good without too many accessories. You will need a pair of dark wash blue skinny jeans. You will need a brown shirt (it can be any shade of brown). You can have a knit sweater too, just in case you are going to be in a cold place.
Accessories. You will need a patterned headband, this will make your outfit much more sophisticated! You can add a scarf if you really want to make the look be instantly more boho!
Nails. French tips are good for this look, because they are organic, but still polished and shiny. You can just leave your mails bare if you don;t know how to give yourself French tips or don't want to get them done at the salon.
Shoes. I think that you should just wear a pair of earth toned wedges or some really detailed and colorful sandals. This will make your look more exciting which is just what you always need during the summer.
Makeup. You should to a winged eye, and if you want to skip the lip gloss and do lip balm that is perfectly okay. You can also do some double layered mascara on your eyes. This will give you volume and length. Concealer is always mandatory, but if you don't have any pimples or under eye circles, you can skip the concealer. You should always do eyeliner even if it is light, because it makes your eyes seem bigger which is always good!
Questions. If you have any questions, then just: comment, twitter, facebook, aim, or email me! I will have exciting news coming up soon, so just wait a little bit longer, and the news will come!
Tomorrow is a Tuesday, and we are going to be doing a very tropical look. For clothes, you will need a flowy skirt. This will make your outfit instantly eclectic. You can either wear a loose blouse or a bright colored tank top. This will add a more relaxed vibe to your overall look.
Accessories. I suggest a headband. This will make your outfit look more boho. You can use a scarf as a belt to make your outfit more elegant. You can add a bunch of bangles to give your overall look more "bohoness" (?).
Shoes. You can wear either some very colorful shoes, or you can wear a pair of pretty looking sandals, but the sandals cannot have any black!
Nails. I will be wearing a purple color...this will make the outfit a tiny tiny tiny bit more girly which is good for summer, just because if you are girlier then you become more not shy during the summer!
Makeup. You should do a very colorful look. Some blue eyeshadow, and some bright red lipstick. Okay, now you will need to have some blue mascara. This will make you more tropical. If you do a neutral everyday makeup look (like me), then I suggest making a brown smoky eye.
Questions. If you have any questions at all, then just: comment, facebook, twitter, aim, or email me! Have a tropical time with this look!
Tomorrow is a Monday, and we are going to do a pretty/edgy look. You will need a pair of SUPER skinny jeans...they should be black, the black will add to the edgy part, and the skinny will add to the girly. You will need a loose shirt. If you only have loose shirts that show your bust area, then wear an undershirt. You can wear a blazer if you really want to, but it is summer...you will be super hot if you wear a blazer (not hot as in she is so hot, but hot as in warm)!
Accessories. You don't need to accessorize that much, because the outfit will get really girly really fast! I think that the only accessories that you should wear is maybe a headband or some shell necklaces.
Shoes. You should wear some sandals. The sandals should be one of the following colors: grey, black, brown, beige, yellow, or white. The sandals will be girly, and the colors will be edgy.
Nails. I am doing a light lavender color...this is sort of girly, but the hair is going to be super edgy!
Makeup. You should do a major smoky eye, and some bright coral lips! This will make you look girly but you will still have some edge.
Questions. If you have any questions, than either: comment, facebook, aim, twitter, or email me!
Tomorrow is a Sunday...and as most of you probably know...it is Father's Day! My Dad has not chosen what he wants to do, so I sort of have to do an all purpose look. Okay...here goes. Because I just went on a shopping spree, I have a bunch of new cool tee-shirts. I will be wearing a girly/funky/boho/comfortable tee-shirt. I will either be wearing a skirt or a pair of comfy jeans...because I need to get new shorts because none of mine fit! Just in case it is cold, I will bring a light sweatshirt that I can easily stuff in my purse.
Accessories. I don't have any idea where we are going to go, so I am not going to wear any accessories except for maybe a scarf. If you have noticed in pictures, I never ever ever take off my necklace of a woman crying. I have no idea why I like it...I just do!
Shoes. I will probably wear sandals, and then bring a pair of comfy tennis shoes, just in case we are going to be walking...I guess we will have to be walking, you walk pretty much wherever you go (LOL)!
Nails. My Dad hates it when I wear "rebellious" colors on my nails, so I have to keep my nails in a pearly color! Eek! But if you have 'cool" dads, then just wear any color that you want to.
Makeup. My Dad is also against me wearing makeup, but I almost always wear it anyways, so I want to please him. But only half way. I will conceal all of my zits, and then add a hint of blush. I will curl my lashes, and the I will add a little nude eyeshadow and pencil eyeliner.
Questions. If you have any questions, then just: comment, twitter, or email me. I am going to do a few contests over the summer, so I will create a "Contest" page, and if you want to enter, then just comment on the most current blog saying "Enter me". You will have to enter your email address, just in case you win. If you really want to win, you can enter as many times as you want. I will be using random.org to figure out who the winner is, so entering a lot of times will help you win.
Because I am now on Summer break, I will try to update the blog on weekends too! So, I am going to update for Saturday! Okay, so, I will be going to one of my friend's parties. The party is just a movie and lunch, but there is an exciting outfit always waiting for me! I will be wearing a pair of black skinny jeans, and a black tank top. Over the black tank top, I willbe wearing a funky zipper skirt! I cannot wait to wear this killer outfit!
Accessories. I will be wearing some bracelets, and a few edgy necklaces. If you want, you can wear a scarf!
Shoes. I will either wear some flats or a pair of edgy tennis shoes. I would wear heels, but I don't want to appear too dressed up. If you want, I will wear boots! Oh, that sounds great! Boots it is!
Nails. I will be wearing some black polish...this will edge out my look...which I definitely want. There is nothing like goth nails to edge out an outfit or look.
Makeup. Nobody who is going to the party know that I wear makeup, so I have to go really light. Nude eyeshadow, no eyeliner, very very very very very very very very very very light blush, clear lip gloss (Covergirl), and an eyelash curler. It sucks that I can't do more to edge out my look!
Questions. If you have any questions, then just comment, twitter, or email me! Because it is summer, I have the ability to almost always be on the website an be ready to respond to your questions. Also, I might have some big news, but I want it to be a surprise...so stay tuned for more daily updates.
Tomorrow is my last day of school. Woo hoo! I cannot believe that school is really over! So, you might not know this, but at my school, we wear uniforms...eek! But, because it is the last day of school, I think that I can get away with adding a few extra things to my outfit that I never wear! I am going to wear a navy blue shirt (I will be wearing a polo because of the uniform), and on top of that, I will be wearing an Oxford shirt. I am going to wear a skirt, just because it is a bit flirtier. In case there is someone seeing me a little bit out of uniform, I will wear a black blazer too!
Accessories. I will be wearing as many necklaces as I can fit on my neck, this will instantly dress up my entire outfit. If you want, you can fill your wrists with bangles and other assorted bracelets for an even more girly vibe.
Shoes. I will either be wearing some edgy tennis shoes, or a pair of black flats (again). You can pick whichever shoes that you want. It does not matter just as long as the shoes that you do end up picking are stylish.
Nails. I decided to wear my favorite color by Anise...it is sort of pearly (pick your favorite color).
Makeup. I am going to be doing a "pretty" makeup look. This will keep most of the attention on my clothes. I will start with adding some light face lotion. Next, I will be wearing a little bit of blush. This will brighten up my cheeks. Afterwards, I will curl my eyelashes. Next, I will apply some nude eyeshadow. Then, I will add some very light pencil eyeliner. After that, I will put concealer over all of my acne prone areas, this will definitely freshen up my look. Lastly, I will dab on a little bit of lipgloss, and my makeup will be done!
Questions. If you have any questions, then just: comment, twitter, or email me! Also, since summer is starting, I will be able to update more on the website, and do a few contests! If you win a contest, I will ship you the prize for free! I am not sure what to do yet...but if you have any ideas...then just comment!
Tomorrow is a Thursday...and yesterday, I just bought a bunch of new summer clothes, so I am going to be doing a tomboy summer look. The whole point of this, is to show how tomboys can dress during the summer...because a lot of the summer clothes are very girly...so here goes. For clothes, you will need to wear a shirt that is in bright colors, but is tomboy proof. The shirt should also be a thin shirt...this way, you are not too hot! For pants (tomboys don't like summer shorts) you will need a pair of acid wash skinny jeans. The acid wash will make it more summery...and the skinny jeans in general make it good for tomboys.
Accessories. You will need either a hat, or you can wear a bunch of shell necklaces. The shell necklaces will make the outfit appear more summery...but still keep the look very good for tomboys.
Shoes. I will be wearing a pair of Converse...or just cool Vans...it does not matter.
Nails. I am going to re-paint my nails yellow later. This will make them summery, but the bright yellow will be rebellious (which is tomboy style). If you want, you can get some designs ion the nails to make them more summery.
Makeup. We are not doing goth, we are doing tomboy. So for the first time...all that you will need is some concealer and an eyelash curler. That is it!
Questions. If you have any questions, then just comment, twitter, or email!
This is my blog! For every bit of randomness that comes out of my head... read on :)
