Style of the Day: Alterna-Pinup

045

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!)

060

Shirt from Victoria’s Secret, bandana probably from Hot Topic. Urban Decay Electric eye shadow.

011Just threw my hair up into a messy bun, tied on the bandana, and then curled my bangs under with a flat iron. Voila.

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!

National Edge Day

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?

Purse of the Day: Breast Cancer Awareness Bag

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.

Over the weekend I was busy with a hair show at school, I got to be a model for my good friends. My buddy Michaelle did my hair, I loved it because the updo reminded me of the I Love Lucy show. My friend Catalina did my makeup, she’s very good at that! The theme was 50’s prom and it was super fun getting ready for it! I got to wear my faux fur wrap, a tiara, and a pretty coral Jessica McClintock prom dress with ruffles and a corset back.

Nails: OPI Crackle

I got some new polishes at my school in the last couple of weeks and I finally had time to try them out. Of course I love the consistency of the OPI polishes and they have a ton of colors to choose from. The dark blue is called I saw..U saw.. We saw… Warsaw (Yes they all have funny names) and the silver one is simply titled Silver Shatter. I was hesitant to use the crakcle because other brands haven’t lived up to my standards, however, I was pretty pleased by how this turned out. I’m still not a huge fan of the cracked look, but at least this brand actually works how it advertises. The blue went on first, two coats, and then just one thin coat of silver and you can watch as it cracks! It’s kinda cool. I think I’m better at polishing other peoples’ nails now than my own, but oh well. Lol.

The other day I didn’t wear much makeup and I forgot to put much in my hair but I turned out looking better than usual. Lol. Funny how that happens. Fall is slowly but surely creeping up on us so I have to take advantage of the weather with skimpy clothes while I can. Tank is Kirra I think, and the board shorts are Dickies.

Hair: Longlasting Curls

I’ve had my hair curled a couple times lately. Last week by my friend Emily and this week by my buddy Catalina. I didn’t think that the curls would stay very long in my hair because whenever I have had a modeling event, my curls have never lasted more than an hour or two. It might have something to do with the fact that the women and Leon’s who always did my hair before, did not use enough products in my hair or their products were not as nice as the hair supplies we use at my beauty school. These curls from the girls at my school have lasted for days!!! I get compliments on how well the curl holds even after I’ve slept on them a couple of nights! Straight hair is always my favorite because it’s natural for me, but it’s fun to change it up every once in a while. Comment below or like. Tell me what you think!

This week my friend Michaelle made my hands pretty again! Because I use my hands a lot at school, I decided to get an acrylic overlay so that my natural nails won’t break so easily. On top of the thin layer of acrylic, I got some nude gel polish called Passion by OPI. They turned out very nice and shiny!! I like that they look natural and will match all my clothes. It will also help my nails grow long and be stronger and better protected against all the hair styles I do everyday.
