This look was created by my friends Rita and Amber. First, Rita put a roller set in my hair and after it was dried, Amber strategically placed the curls into a romantic, bridal-esque updo. It was a lot like big pincurls, so they looked like flowers. Everyone enjoyed looking at it and after a couple days, when I took it down, people were sad that I didn’t keep it up longer. Good thing I am hard headed though, because there were over 100 bobby pins in my hair!!

Two pieces of hair were left hanging in order to frame my face in a feminine manor and give a less harsh vibe. Blue liner and nude lips from Marc Jacobs cosmetic line. Fur from Forever 21, striped shirt from Victoria’s Secret, boots are Black Poppy.

To keep this style the next day, I had to sleep with three hair nets, two cloth hairbands, and one scarf. It only felt uncomfortable to lay on one side, luckily, so I stayed very still on my other side!

I felt very Audrey Hepburn :)

Cosmetology Graduation

035 I’ve been super busy trying to finish up my completions for hair school. This weekend was my graduation ceremony! I wore this dress made by Adrianna Papell called Hailey Logan. It is a kind of satin-like material with pink tull underneath, halter top with a cutout below the bust line and a pink zipper in back. I’d say it’s even more charming in person!055 Nude heels are Charlotte Russe. I broke out my Marc Jacobs mascara since it was a special occasion, I usually hate mascara lol. I also used my Urban Decay Naked Basics palette, D&G liquid liner, Maybeline Eye Studio gel liner, light contour with Estee Lauder bronzer/blush, and Dior color awakening lip balm. More makeup than usual, so I felt kind of itchy. Haha. It was a great day though!!!! I was nominated for student of the year, and got a perfect attendance award! It’s pretty cool I can say I have two degrees now too.  :D wpid-0315151242a.jpg

Review: Urban Decay Naked Basics

022

This is my newest eyeshadow palette. I decided to go with one of the smaller Naked palettes since it takes a long time to use up one of these things. I love how smooth and weightless Urban Decay shadows go on. They are very pigmented so they don’t fade either. Don’t forget they are vegan too, no animal testing.

Venus is a white shade, Foxy is light beige, W.O.S is a light tan hue, Naked2 is a mocha shade, Faint is a darker brown
color, and Crave is jet black.

Bag of the Day: Marc Jacobs Satchel

nikons1 098 I know that these two photos are very similar, but the first image is more true to the actual color of this purse. The second photo is sharper or clearer, but isn’t as true to the color. So when I found this bag I was so excitied, I knew instantly that I had to have it. The color is the turquoise that my friends tend to call ‘my color’ since I wear it so much and even sport it in my hair!It’s genuine Italian leather and even came with it’s own fabric sack to store it in when it’s not in use. Isn’t that cute?! nikons1 100

Hair: Waterfall Braid and Curls

The other week my friend Ryan styled my hair. She put curls in it with the Marcel iron and then added a lovely waterfall braid at the crown. Everyone who saw it loved it and exclaimed that it reminded them of a fairy. I made sure to get a photo of the back!! She did a great job.

The curls held for a few days and they were natural looking because of how she used the Marcel. Some people asked if that was my real curl pattern. It was very flower/nymph/ethereal/my little pony princess vibe, not my typical go to look but it was fun to rock while it lasted. What doo should I go for next???

My very dear friend and fellow cosmetologist, Rita, sat down with me to service me to a nice mannicure and polish session. These are OPI colors, but because they have such odd names, I cannot for the life of me remember what these were labeled. I’m sure with a little help from google I could find out , but it’s not that crucial! The accent nail was all my idea, I thought it would make the teal color pop and it added for a quirky touch as well. Tell me what you think!!!!

Happy Friday the thirteenth everyone!!

My tastes are eclectic and draw from both dark and light sides of life, such as rock and roll and feminine haute couture quirkiness. The other day I went to the mall and this is what I wore. It wasn’t too chilly so I went with my light weight letter jacket that I punked up recently with a  X  (straightedge;drug free) patch and some spikes at the collar. It was missing a touch of something, but now it feels perfectly revamped! The jeans are actually leggings and they came pre-ripped which is cute/careless looking. I’m pretty psyched that they fit too, it’s very hard finding pants that fit, these are a lucky superskinny/short/0 combo that fit like a glove. Still have the same hair. Nude lip color by Estee Lauder, I’ll post the name later after I have time to recall it. Lol.

New Hair: Pink and Blue Peekaboo

003

I changed up the peekaboo colors in my hair yet again! After having teal for a while, a few months actually, I decided I wanted to add another color to spruce things up a bit. First, I tried a pink color called Cotton Candy by Manic Panic, which turned out too pastel for my liking, so I went with this pretty pink Joico colo this weekr. It actually took a little darker than I thought it would, in the harsh flourescent lights indoors, it looks more purple-ish, and anyone who knows me well knows that I hate purple ANYTHING. Outdoors and in more natural lighting, it is obviously fuschia pink (thankfully.) For right now, this will do. I’m not sure what’s next. I think I know what I’m doing next, but it’s secret for now!!
