Hey guys! So sorry I haven’t posted in a while. I’ve had finals for my university on top of a cold. Anyways, I got an email from Korrie from Dailylook.com and she had a great project for me to work on. I was asked to create a look I would put together for New Year’s Eve based on one of Daily Look’s little black dresses. I thought this was a great idea so the result is above. I picked this dress first of all because I love how flowy it is. The cinched sleeves are so nice and the sleeves actually have cutouts on the side. I have a similar dress to this and I can personally tell you that these types of dresses are so flattering but also very comfortable. Next I chose these chunky shoes. This definitely is my idea style with the girly dress and the edgy shoes. Then I decided to choose some jewelry to go along with the outfit. Mixing silver and gold is very in style at the moment and I love the look of it! So I picked a long gold necklace with two triangles. Also, to go along with that is a head piece with a gold chain and a black gem which goes on the forehead. Lastly, I found this adorable gold triangle ring that matches the necklace and the head piece. Every girl needs a little bag when going out during NYE. This silver clutch went perfectly with the outfit and I actually wish I could have it because it’s so adorable! It’s small and easy to carry around. If you want to drape it on your shoulder, it even has a gold chain. And the very last thing to top off this outfit is some O.P.I. silver glitter nail polish. I absolutely love the O.P.I. brand, they always have such beautiful polishes.
That wraps up my entire NYE outfit. All of these products can be found on the Daily Look website (except for the nail polish of course). This was so fun for me to work on and a great way for me to explore the site. Thank you so much Korrie for this opportunity and I am definitely a fan of Daily Look now and will be visiting and hopefully buying from it soon. I hope you guys enjoyed this look too and that it gave you some inspiration if you have plans for New Year’s Eve. Hope everyone’s Christmas was amazing! <3
Hey guys! So I stumbled upon this article from Zoella. It’s on her blog and I thought she gave the most amazing advice on photography for blogs. I thought you all would appreciate this since, in my opinion, photography is such an interesting part of a blog. I love taking pictures and I definitely want to keep improving with them. She talks about editing, lighting, and what makes a good photograph. I think it’s great to get tips from a successful blogger and Youtuber. It motivates me to better my blog and get new ideas. Not to mention, her blog is gorgeous so that just makes me want to read more of it haha. Anyways, this article is perfect if you’re looking for ways to have an even more amazing blog! Enjoy!
So it’s finally Thanksgiving break! I’ve been home for about four days now and there’s some things I’ve realized. First, how weird it is to come home and realize things have changed in the city you’ve grown up in. I find myself noticing the smallest details that have been taken away or added in my city. Or restaurants that were there before aren’t anymore. Or even walking around in the mall, I’ll notice that stores have changed into other stores. It just reminds me that the world definitely doesn’t wait up for you. You have to keep bettering yourself to keep up with the world and improving just for yourself as well. This is what I hope to accomplish in college, with this blog, and hopefully in the fashion world.
Another small happiness that comes with being home for the holidays is showering without shoes and simply having privacy. Any college student will understand when I say that sometimes it gets tiring to sharing everything around you with twenty other people. It’s great to be so close to all your friends, and I love that aspect of dorm life, but living fairly close to home has been a plus in that way. (All my college friends who are reading this, don’t worry, I love you all to pieces!)
Something that is a little more specific with my family, is when I come home for the holidays, my house is completely decked out in decorations for whatever we’re celebrating. In this instance, my family decorated very early for Christmas and I came home to garland on the staircase, the Christmas tree completely decorated, and nutcrackers taking over the mantle. This was the same for Halloween (a little army of scarecrows in the living room). This definitely has made me excited for Christmas vacation even more. Is it weird to anticipate a break from school during a break from school? If it is, that’s okay because I can’t wait for Christmas anyways hahaha. It was also very nice to be with my family, any college student will agree to that.
If you’re home from college for Thanksgiving as well, let me know some things you enjoy about being away from school for a bit. Or even some traditions for the holidays. I love hearing your guys’ responses so comment below! Hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving! :)
I first started getting into the band Young the Giant because of their second album, “Mind Over Matter”. However, Apartment is one of their older songs and believe it or not, I just started listening to it. They performed it at their Los Angeles concert that I attended and I don’t know why I didn’t start listening to it right after that. It’s such a cool song and so is the video. The video has this laid back, surfer vibe that I’ve grown up with. Well, except for the end hahaha. I like how some parts are filmed with an old camera (I love those vintage looks). Young the Giant is one of my favorite bands, so I hope you enjoy this song too! :)
