Happy New Year

I hope that everyone had a great time over the Holidays. My time was spent on vacation and spending time with family and friends.
As the New Year comes, parties, resolutions, and sparkle come along with it. Since the world didn't end, I guess that this year we really do have a lot to celebrate.
Wishing everyone around the world an amazing New Year!



I thought that I would share with you this wonderful hair tutorial that I found on thebeautydepartment.com. I love this hairstyle and will be re-creating it later on in the week. 
I personally love this look and think that it is perfect for any special occasion that you need to attend.

Would you re-create this hairstyle? Tell me in the comments below.



Travel Plans

I am off. Today, I am boarding the plane and heading to Florida.
 I never can decide on what I want to wear on the plane. I want to comfortable, but I also want to look good. I don't want to look like I wore my pajamas to the airport. Its also hard to go from one completely different climate to the another one. Where I live, I have to wear a jacket, while in Florida I will be wearing shorts.
To solve my issues, I usually wear light layers that can make the transition from the cool temperatures to the warm temperatures.
I created two different outfits that I would wear on the plane and to the airport. I actually wore an outfit almost identical to the second one. Comfortable sweaters make up for the cool temperatures on the plane, while a scarf can keep you chic and warm. These outfits are not that complex, but they will ensure that you look amazing.
If you have travel plans for the holiday season, stay safe and look chic at the same time.
Have a great week.

Winter White?

All photos via tumblr

          School is out and I am heading out to Florida Saturday. I am so glad that my classes are done and I can relax for a few weeks.  Hopefully I will be able to post much more regularly.
          I have been loving the color white recently. I don't know if it is because I have been thinking about snow or what, but I find winter white fascinating. The color white is not just for summer. In some ways I think that white is more of a winter color than a summer color. However, when it comes to wearing the color white in the winter, it all depends on the fabric. White chiffon or a light cotton would not be the most practical cloth to wear during the cold winter months unless you live in the Bahamas. Since, I do not live someplace that warm, I tend to wear white wool sweaters, etc. Pair your favorite white sweater with a contrasting dark blazer/coat and you are good to go.
          I wanted to wish you all a happy holidays and I hope that you have a fantastic weekend.

              Tell me do you wear winter white and if you do what do you like to pair the color with?

Outfits for Winter Holidays

       Its that time of year again. People are going to tons of holiday parties as well as planning their outfits for Christmas and New Years. 
While it may be December, where I live it has been in the 60's. I can't complain about that, but it is a shame to leave all of those cute winter outfits in the closet. However, I have had my share of events to go to this season. 
I personally take advantage of every chance I can get to dress up. I would much rather wear skirts and dresses than pants. (Depends of the pants.... I love a good patterned pair.) I am a total girly girl and I like to have a chance to wear all of the clothes that I buy throughout the year. Whether its getting dressed for parties or for going to dinner, I don't care. I love to get dressed up.
I put together a series of outfits that I personally would wear.

Relaxing on Sunday

via tumblr

          Hi Everyone,

    My camping trip was amazing. I didn't die from the cold and I only wound up with a couple hundred    
               mosquitos bites. All in all, it was nice to something other than school for a change.
    Today is Sunday, and I can't wait to wear a nice outfit, do my hair and my makeup and just relax. I will probably have to study but that just comes with the day. I love Sundays, it is almost my favorite            
                                        day of the week. What do you all do on Sundays?

     I am so sorry that I didn't post yesterday. School has been crazy and with four quizzes and tests in one day, I decided to hold off on the blogging. Fall starts on Saturday (if I am not mistaken) and I will be spending my weekend camping with all of my friends from school.
(This should be interesting because I haven't been camping in FOREVER...) However, if I wasn't camping, I would definitely be walking around town with any outfit like this. Perfect for

Want of The Day

Marc by Marc Jacobs watch

Buy it Here!!

If you were to ask me what time it was I would probably have no clue. I never have a watch with me and I rarely know what time it is without looking at a clock. If I am out somewhere I usually have to ask a friend what time it is.
However, this watch is the perfect solution to my problem. It's simple design would go good with anything. I really like this watch. While I see many fashion bloggers with gold watches, I prefer this black one. It is also Marc by Marc Jacobs which is a plus. But now thinking about it... because this watch doesn't have any numbers, I guess that I still kind of will be guessing about the time.
Do you wear watches or do you prefer to look up the time on your cellphone?

Fall Trends: Need For Tweed

various designers
Tweed is a major trend this fall. We saw it incorporated into a lot of designer's fall collections as well
                                                 being worn during New York fashion week .
I personally love this trend because it is not extremely trendy. Tweed is an extremely classic fabric, but it can be made trend with various outfit combinations. If you have tweed pieces in your closet,
                         you can be sure that you will be able to wear them several seasons now.

DIY: Transparent Clutch

via This Time Tomorrow

    I love transparent clutches. They may not be the most practical thing when it comes to an everyday
    bag (especially if you don't want people to see what you have in your clutch), however I think that 
    if styled right they can be the perfect accessory for a fall outfit. I found this amazing tutorial over at 
                              A Pair and Spare and I thought that I should share it with you.diy transparent clutch 2 (1)

You need:
- A big rectangle of clear PVC. Mine was around 3mm thick
- 5 round top studs with screws
- A pen
- Scissors
- Multi hole punch
- A ruler
- An A1 piece of white paper or cardboard

How to

1. Draw the template onto your paper - following the measurements you see below. Click here for a bigger version. Note that the image itself is indicative and not to scale. The measurements are approximate because I think you can make it a little bigger or smaller or give it a different shape if you want, it's just about trimming it to suit you, but this template will give you the general structure.

2. Cut your template out and then use some tape to stick it on your pvc.

3. Cut your pvc, using the template as a guide.

4. Remove the template from the pvc.

5. Fold the corners over like an envelope, folding the sides in first, then the bottom, and then lastly the top flap.

6. Decide where you want to put your stud beads to secure the envelope shape. I have put little coloured circles on the template to give you an idea of where the holes should go for the studs. Use the hole puncher to make holes relative to the size of the screw in the stud bead.

7. Push the screw through from the underneath and then screw the top on.

8. For the lower holes, make the top hole first and then mark with a pen the inside hole. Open up the bag to make the inside hole.

9. Once all the holes are done - close the bag to work out where to put the stud that will act as a latch.

10. Mark with a pen and then use the hole punch to put a hole in the underside of the opening. Thread the stud bead through the single underneath layer, and then put another hole in the flap to be used to secure the opening by pushing the hole over the stud.

Voila! Put a glitter or leopard print purse inside to hold all your bits and pieces.

Fall Trend: Metallics

 Metallics are a fall trend that I really like. I think that the sheen can really make an outfit. We aren't limited to gold and silver anymore, now you can find metallics in a variety of colors. You can make metallics fancy or tone them down for a more casual look. You can wear metallic shoes which are really pretty or incorporate the tone in bigger pieces of your wardrobe. I really like this trend, do you?Fall Trend: Metallics
