Black and Blue




Oatmeal Oversized Cardgian: Thrifted @ Captain's Helm
Blue Raglan Sweater: American Apparel
Shorts: H&M
Tights and Socks: Target
Creepers: Thrifted @ DEE *LUX

Been awhile since I've done just a photo update. This are some quicks snaps of an outfit I've been loving. Its super comfortable and perfect for school. I've been very into pairing just one color with all white or black for the rest of the outfit. It must be the cold weather inspiring me to do some blue color blocking.

Professional Loving








Shearling Parka- Ebay
Skate Rat Crop Top- Captain Fin @ Captain's Helm (Oceanside)
Velevet High Waisted Leggings- Forever 21
TUK- buckle creepers: Thrifted

The weather has been cooling down so I've been able to style these amazing high waisted velvet leggings. They are so comfortable and super warm. For this look I paired it with an old crop top and my favorite winter coat. The coat I got off of Ebay and its great because it has the aviator collar you can zip up and breathe into to warm your nose up, the coat is also lined with shearling for added warmth. Since the weather has been gloomy lately I've been listening to a  lot of Emika, she's a great artist with hauntingly beautiful abient goth sound (if that makes any sense haha) you might like her music!

Off to the Races




Leather Jacket: H&M
Red Flannel: Thrifted
Jeans: Forever 21
Shoes: Converse

Went to the Elsinore Grand Prix on Sunday and I snapped some pics of my super casual outfit. I warmed myself up with this amazing faux leather jacket from H&M, get ready to see it a lot because I'm in love with it. The best part is the faux fur leather around the upper lapel and quilting on the inside. The red flannel is an old favorite that I used to layer with just in case I got cold. I paired it with some grey jeans and myblack converse since I would be walking around a lot.
The weather is getting colder, I'm excited for busting out my winter coats!

DIY Crystal Charm Bracelet

 Crystal jewelry has been very trendy lately, and for a mineral collector like myself I decided to make my own crystal bracelet for half the price.

 Here's what you'll need:
Various crystals and chains, you can either have a necklace or bracelet.

First get an idea of the type of look you want, I wanted to make neckalces to layer with and a bracelet so I picked my three favorite stones from http://www.healingcrystals.com/


Various charms, which are also optional. I enjoyed adding a delicate star from an old broken piece of jewelry to this rose quartz stone. Because rose quartz is said to support connection within groups and community, and carries a high spiritual attunement to the earth, universe, and the divine. So, a star seemed perfect.
If you have a chain like the one I do with big gaps between the links you will need tweezers to seperate the links so you can hang the charms on each loop. Don't forget to squeeze them back into a secure position so you don't loose anything you attached to the bracelet.


Done!

Oh I just can't wait to be king

For Halloween this year I decided to be Simba from one of my favorite movies, The Lion King. This make-up tutorial is super easy and very theatrical.
I started off with day 3 or 4 hair, the dirtier the better to hold the style.

Get some fake long nails to be your claws
I painted mine black
to give myself a poofy lion man I used this root pump by big sexy hair

apply the foam to the base of your roots where you want volume, 
I placed mine anywhere and everywhere

I then used this  Revlon blow dryer

Apply heat to the faom that has been drying on your root until completely dry


Next I took all my hair and braided it under my chin to form a mane like Simba's

Next, prep your face with primer and eye shadow primer

Apply a yellow color mixed with your usual foundation  for a golden glow

then apply a white liner under your eyes to shape them


Next use a brown shadow to contour the sides of your nose and fill in your brows. Then take a black liquid eyeliner or black creme make up and draw on your nose and a line leading down to the mouth.

take that same brown shade and cover your entire lid up to your brows. 

next, finish off your mouth with thin lines along your mouth slightly curving up at the ends


Then take a white creme color and start outlining the lighter portion of your muzzle and lightly feather in around your mouth.


finish off with some whiskers and eye liner to define and shape your eyes

I took my eyeliner down lower than usual to give the illussion of a more cat shapped eye and lightly lined my lower water line.

set with powder, spary your mane with hair spray remove the hair tye and you're done!

"Danger? Hah! I walk on the wild side. I laugh in the face of danger. Ha ha ha ha!"-Simba
Happy Halloween!
