outfit of the day: boho wanna-be

shirt: american eagle outfitters // cardigan thing: kohls // jeans: BKE denim // boots: marshalls // bracelets: handmade & gifts // necklace: molly the pirate on etsy // headband: school fundraiser

whoa. whoa. I had no idea how insanely awesome I was at foot modeling *pauses and admires feet, thinks of calling payless shoes for a job*

About three-four months ago I started a fashion revolution in my grade when I showed up with a simple hemp-braided headband wrapped around my head.
Seriously. Not kidding. The funny thing was that more guys than girls jumped on the "hippie headband" bandwagon, and I was flooded with requests for them (I make my own). It is a regular item of my wardrobe now, and I wear one two-three days a week.

What's your favorite accessory to add to an outfit?

sunday spark week 5

This is the nail design I slaved over on Saturday. I wanted to have nice-looking nails on Easter and I wanted to do a flower, so this is what I came up with. Let me just say, it was so dang hard to do this design lefty! (I'm right-handed ;])

Welcome to week five of Sunday Spark, where you can start off your week with a spark of inspiration! You can also leave inspiration for others, just enter your link in the linky tool below! It may be a photo of your makeup for the day, it may be a cool manicure you just did, it may be an awesome outfit. Anything can be inspirational! The only rules are:

You must take the photos/write the post yourself
the post/photo must be something beauty/fashion related (this is a beauty blog after all!)
you must include this button in your post:

or link to this blog.

Every Sunday I'll pick my favorite bit of inspiration and feature it on this bloggity-blog. I don't expect to get too many entries the first few weeks, if any, but one is better than nothing ;) So link away, I'd love to see what beauty inspiration you guys have for everyone!

Here are the links from last week:

thanks Rachel and Mikayla for linking up!

makeup tutorial: princess

My grandad passed away last night, and I thought today I would do something with my makeup that reminded me of him. He used to call me "princess", I don't know why, but it kind of stuck, so I thought I'd do a "princess-y" look :)

Products used:
Revlon Creme Shadows (cream base)
Profusion Palette (light gold shadow)
Revlon Quad in Coffee Bean (highlight cream color)
Coastal Scents 88 Original palette (gold, brown, deep pink, plum-brown)
wet n wild dark brown eyeliner
Covergirl All-in-One mascara in black
Covergirl LashBast Fusion mascara in black
Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake
Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Icy Nude

step 1: prime your lids

step 2: pat a gold shadow on your inner corners/tear duct area

step 3: apply a light cream-colored shadow all over your lid

step 4: sweep a deep pink color into your crease and outer corner

step 5: with a light hand, take a dark brown/plum/red color and pat it into your very outer corner (if you happen to have the Urdban Decay Original Naked palette "Hustle" would be great for this!)

step 6: with the same brown/plum/red color, line the outer half of your upper lids. With the remaining shadow on the brush, apply it to the outer third of your lower lids

step 7: Line your waterline with a brown liner

step 8: apply several coats of your favorite black mascara to your upper and lower lashes.

step 9: finish off with a pinky-nude lip color and put a gloss on top.


I hope you guys enjoyed this and if you ever try out any of my tutorials, post a photo of yourself on your blog and leave me the link, I'd love to se how it works out for you!
