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: https://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.
