The Oscars was a beautiful sight this year; with the fabulous and bold dresses that actresses risked to wear. Hollywood’s sweetheart Lupita Nyong’o impressed as usual with her simple pale blue Prada dress. I especially appreciate the skirt of the dress along with her adorable accessories which gave her the look of princess Cinderella. Another lovely dress that I loved was Kristin Bell’s, she wore a white dress with a structured bodice and mermaid train that gave the dress a unique and exciting look. I became obsessed with the elegant royal blue that Sandra Bullock sported because it is so excellently designed and executed that it makes me wish that she would wear it to every event. Charlize Theron brought back memories of her role as the evil queen in her Dior Haute Couture gown. Black is a color that you can never go wrong with but a dress like this may be hard to pull off for just anyone because of its cool cut shape of the bodice. I cannot decide on which dress was my favorite from these amazing gowns so tell me by commenting which dress was your favorite!

For those of you who use a curling iron, I assure you that with this no-heat curling method, you will toss your curler out the window. Not bluffing guys, this is what I’ve been doing with my hair for the past week or so and it works magic. I don’t like to share my beauty secrets with everyone but since all of my readers and followers are my best friends, I’ll let you in on the hair secret. A lot of people actually already know about this awesome hair curling method but if you don’t, here are the steps:
Shower or dampen your hair and take a headband that circles or goes all the way around your head and put it over your hair, hippy style.
Step 2: Take a section of hair, right underneath the headband in the front. Depending on how thick you want your curl to be, should be the thickness of the strand, so if you want big fat curls take a large chunk of hair.
Next take that strand of hair and loop it under the headband.
Step 4: Now you add on another section of hair and also loop it under. Continue wrapping the hair until you get to the back of your head.
Step 5: Do the same thing to the other side of your head until you reach the nape of your neck.
Step 6: Tuck in any lose strands, secure with bobby pins if needed and hit the hay! (I just had to put a picture of Sleeping Beauty).
Step 6: Wake up with cute bouncy curls that you can be proud of! Lock in with hair spray.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and found it helpful! Let me know if you have used it before or if you are planning on it!

A new teen model is on the rise in the fashion world. Kendall Jenner is pushing her fellow family members off the spotlight and is shining through and being accepted in the high fashion industry. The gorgeous brunette has been talking about her love for modelling since forever and now her dream is finally coming true! Kendall was barely recognizable backstage because her hair and makeup completely transformed her from being an 18 year old Californian to an awesome and superb looking model. As much as I would love to say cheers to her, it’s a little bit difficult considering that she really had everything handed to her on a silver platter in her career. It certainly doesn’t hurt that her crazy family has so many connections and can really get anything they want. Whereas, other people have to work really hard to be discovered or book shows. And sure the older Kardashians certainly have worked a lot in their lifetime, so maybe they deserve some of the things they get, but has Kendall really experienced everything that a regular hard working model has? Of course not! Do you think she has it too easy as well?
Kendall walked the Marc Jacobs fashion show, sporting a short wig and severe makeup that made her eyebrows perform the disappearing act. Jenner walked the catwalk in a completely see-through long sleeve V-neck sweater, sans bra. I am personally not exactly a fan of Kendall’s outfit but it looks pretty cool with everything including the hair and makeup put together. The outfit is kind of awkward but that was probably the point, since it was a very uncomfortable show for the viewer to sit through in general, from everything to the music/creepy voicing to the set.There has been a lot of outrage and criticism over Kendall baring her chest, but honestly it does not bug me one single bit. I think we are all grown up and mature enough to handle a bare chest covered by see-through fabric on a high fashion runway. I would understand if 12 year olds were disgusted over this, but that’s because they don’t know better. Adults and teens who understand fashion however should be able to understand that Kendall did not pick out her own outfit. And she wouldn’t object to anything that the designer picked for her because a model’s job is to showcase anything that the designer chooses to put on them. I think she did an awesome job and she was a good sport, and her fans should be proud of her for being strong and confident. Maybe Kendall can even teach the other Kardashians, Kim especially, about beauty and self confidence. Go Kendall!

Hello lovely readers,
Before I start this post I would like to apologize for being late on my posts lately, unfortunately I have been quite busy with schoolwork and activities.
An extreme change in hair color can alter your entire look, however dying your hair from blond to brown is probably the best hair color change that there really is. Countless celebrities have gone through with this and they have shown that it looks fabulous on them. Even if it didn’t improve appearance, the brown hair certainly did not look worse. I have observed that brown hair can make people look more mature, intelligent, and can frame and thin your face. If you have dirty blond hair and dark brown hair this is a sign that you would look great with brown hair, but if you have very light hair (including your eyebrows and lashes) brown hair may be more difficult for you to pull off. Katy Perry and famous actress Leighten Meester, are my favorite blonde beauties that have gone to the dark side. They both have very delicate and pretty facial features so they can basically pull off any hair color, however the rich chocolate color truly does look awesome on them.
Let me know what you think!

People often catch me wearing my summer dresses and skirts during the winter. I don’t understand why people don’t do the same, everyone packs away their skirts and dresses and only re-open that part of their closet again when the snow begins to melt. Sometimes I admit, my prints are too tropical for the winter, but a simple floral dress or a frilly, pencil, circle, or maxi skirt is perfect for even the cold days.
To keep yourself warm, get yourself into some tights, slide into some cute legwarmers, and throw on a cardigan; this creates the ultimate cozy look. I always opt for my classic black tights but at the bottom of my drawer, I have my awesome burgundy tights waiting for me, so I’ll have to take a risk and try to rock those eventually. I recommend you also experiment with colorful or patterned tights, but please restrain yourself from looking like you’re in a Halloween costume. Now, you can wear really any of your summer dresses but there are dresses actually meant for freezing weather too. For example, long-sleeved, wool, or maxi dresses and skirts are perfect for winter. Finish your look with riding boots, if the dress is above your knees, combat boots, or ankle boots.

PS- I’m sorry I haven’t posted in a while, I’ve been studying away for finals week :-/
Ella Yelich-O’Connor, stage name Lorde, is already becoming a fashion and music icon at the young age of 17. Lorde is a singer that has made her way into the music world with her popular song “Royals” in 2013. But she has proven to be more then just a singer, she has also become a fashion inspiration for women and young girls like herself. While some people are inspired by her music, I am inspired by her style. Lorde is much wiser and then your typical selfie-obsessed high schooler and has an interesting and grown-up outlook on life. Her music has important and inspiring messages for people, unlike other young pop stars like Miley Cyrus or Selena Gomez. Unlike these stars who only wear leotards now it seems, Lorde enjoys long dresses, chunky shoes, and pants. When I say chunky shoes by the way, I mean hideously over sized goth-clown inspired shoes. But she makes those hideous shoes look cool so its okay. As for her accessories, she sports a lot of thin bracelets and rings.
Let’s talk about Lorde’s hair. I think I love it a little too much. It’s quite similar to mine actually; crazy curly waves. But she flaunts it, unlike myself who usually finds an excuse to not wear my hair down. Good luck finding a picture of Lorde with straight hair on Google- because it most likely, does not exist. I wish that everyone would just love their hair as much as she does. Not only is her hair just amazing, but her confidence shines through it and makes it even more exquisite. Take an example from Lorde, and wear your hair naturally. I promise, your hair is beautiful, now put down that straightener.
Lorde has fair porcelain skin, which she usually compliments with her go-to gothic/vamp look. To create this look simply use a concealer to hide any blemishes. Then take black liquid liner and wing it! Dab some sparkly eye shadow (one with a glowing effect) in your inner corners. Use only one layer of brown mascara for your top and bottom lashes. For the last step take a dark purple lipstick and apply it onto your lips. Complete the look with a dab of pink gloss. She is known for her purple lipsticks and I commend her for it! Honestly, I am over the pink lipsticks, bring on the purple! However, this is her fancy look, her more natural and simple makeup includes a light pink lip and a thin line of liquid eyeliner or smudged pencil liner on the top lid.
Thank you for reading my first post of 2014!
