Recently there was a local elementary school book fair and I had the pleasure of being involved. I got to dress as a medieval princess called, Princess Read-A-Lot from the Land of Books! I wore a royal blue velvet and gold trimmed gown that was completed with a matching headpiece. I braided my hair and pushed back my bangs and then did light, girly makeup. I was channeling Princess Elsa from Frozen. The best part was probably the fact that the little kids thought I was REAL, and I even got a hug! Hopefully I influenced a few of them to read more, since reading is essential for further learning and we use it all of our lives!! It was fun. I wish I could be a princess everyday since I already act like one! LOL.
On Halloweeny I had a better time than past years. I have found that most years are over hyped and I end up not doing much. This year was cool though. First, I went to Starbucks to get a Franken-Frappuccino and I had some Ghost Buster themed donuts. The frappucicino was great, it’s chai tea with peppermint, I highly reccommend it! I think you can ask for it any time of year.
I decided to dress up since it had been a few years since I purchased a costume. In fact, this year I didn’t even buy a costume, I just worked with the stuff I have already, and it was last minute. Sometimes things come out better when they aren’t critically planned, and this was one of those times! I decided to be a gothic ragdoll or Annabelle, from the new horror movie simpled called Annabelle. I basically just drew on lashes with eye liner, put black liner in the middle of my lips, and I was ready to go. Then I was ready to go to the movies, where I got to see Annabelle. It was an alright movie, but I was little disappointed that it wasn’t very scary!
It’s getting cold out which means more layers. You can be so creative with the layers you choose. I decided to pair stripes, animal print, and plaid. I stuck to neutralistic colors so that it wasn’t too busy. I kept warm and stayed stylish, and that’s what matters! Sweater is Worthington, sheer black shirt and leopard camisole from the Kardashian Kollection, and skirt by Candies.
My WordPress account just notified me that I joined this lovely site 4 years ago today!!! I was a bored sophmore student at UNCG when I created this blog. Over the years I’ve made the page more homey and more ME. Shout out to all my followers, thanks for reading my page! I plan to keep on writing about fashion since it’s very dear to me. Keep on showing the love. :)
Here’s the link to my first ever post: http://lurkingcaro.wordpress.com/2010/11/12/outfit-from-fall-2009/
I got my hair colored the other week. I waited a couple months before getting color so that I would regain some integrity within my hair. I think it worked because my hair doesn’t feel damaged from these newly lightened spots. After lightening some hair underneath my auburn hair, then I got some neon pink put on. The pink isn’t very bright, it came out as a pastel color, which is pretty so I like it. I already know what I want to do with it next though! I probably won’t keep it this way very long, but what’s new?! Lol.
I like old fashioned things like old movies and retro style inspirations. The 1950’s housewife updo with a bandana is a cute look that everyone should try. Even if it’s a modern twist on the look, it’s still fun to do and pretend to be Rosie the Riveter (Yay, equal rights!)
Shirt from Victoria’s Secret, bandana probably from Hot Topic. Urban Decay Electric eye shadow.
I’ve been really busy lately so I haven’t posted as much so I will just put more into this post to make up for it. Basically all you need to know is that my hair just keeps getting bigger and I’ve been very occupied doing other peoples’ hair lately! I’m really involved in my hair career and that’s how I like it. It’s a lot of fun!!
This month is flying by. I’m stocked for Halloween. I’m still not sure what I want to dress up as. Any ideas? I like scary stuff but usually end up being something that looks more cute than creepy. I know that I want to go see a horror movie that night though!
I tried out some waters that a friend from the skincare program at school sells. They have different fruits put in them and each have different health benefits. I really liked the one that has watermelon, kiwi, and pineapple in it because it was of course, super sweet! They seem more filling than just plain water and if you don’t like water, this is a good way to work it into your diet and start drinking it!
Happy national Straightedge day! To be edge, one refrains from alcohol, smoking, and other recreational drugs. I chose to be Straightedge in 7th grade when I started listening to screamo music and fell in love with the whole scene. Straightedge is like a belief system to me. I try to have good morals and I’ve just never found drugs or anything that alters the mind to be appealing.
What do you live by?
My nana got me a present the other week for all my hard work at beauty school. I thought it was very sweet that she was thinking of me. I opened the gift bag and this cute blue tote was inside! It’s an Elle magazine bag that was made for Breast Cancer Awareness month at Kohl’s. It’s my favorite purse now because I love the girl on it. I think it’s super cute.
I love crop tops but the weather is about to get too chilly for them. I am going to miss my skimpy outfits this fall. I really dig this outfit, that is one of my newest shirts! I wore this the other weekend to a cute little crepe restaurant downtown. The top is from Forever 21, skirt is Miley Cyrus and Max Azria, shoes are Forever 21 too.
