Classy Creep

Hey guys! I'm back with another inspired outfit. I went shopping today and wore my black T.U.K. Mondo creepers with a stripped skater dress. While I was shopping I realized that I was gravitating toward a lot of lace items and leather jackets, I just couldn't wait to get home and style away. Creepers, I found, are very hard to style because if you add the wrong piece you can end up looking goth. This is my take on a classy way to wear creepers. ENJOY!

Pumps

Hey guys! I just purchased these nude Steve Madden pumps and while I wait for them to arrive in the post, I just couldn't resist trying to think of ways to style them. These shoes are very classic but worn the right way, they can also be very edgy. Hope you enjoy!

My Hair Through The Years

Hey guys! So I accidentally deleted all the pictures on my blog oops! I tried to redo as many as I could. In the mean time here are a few pictures of my hair through the years. I've been obsessed with cutting and dying my hair since I was about 15. I've literally had EVERY hair color you can think of. I really haven't done anything dramatic to my hair as I'm trying to grow it out. My hair is currently a little past my shoulders and a [boring] brown color. I tried to arrange the pictures in date order starting with me at 16 until about 3 or 4 months ago.

I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I've enjoyed dying my hair all these crazy colors and all my crazy hair styles.

Demi Lovato Inspired Makeup Tutorial

Hey guys! So I was randomly surfing the web and found Demi Lovato's performance from Good Morning America last week and I totally and completely fell in love with her makeup. Check out the pictures bellow. 

I know you can't really see her eye makeup in the pictures but if you watch her performance you can see it a little better. I also came across this picture (bellow) which is almost identical to the makeup she wore on GMA. 

I've kind of been going through a hard time lately and I've been listening to Demi Lovato's latest Album, Unbroken. It's a GREAT album and I suggest you all listen to it. I decided that it would be fitting if I did a makeup tutorial on this look so check it out!

Summer Eyes

Hey Guys! I want to share with you an eye look I came up with tonight, literally spent 5 minutes on it (just one eye). I'm going to be attending a beach wedding in a few weeks where I will also be doing the brides makeup so I wanted to come up with a fun look for myself. I realized this weekend that I haven't really played with bright colors in over a year. I've mostly been doing matte/ neutral colors which is fun but I have SO MANY bright colored eyeshadows that it would be a real shame not to use them. So...... I figured nows the time, the sun is out and bright COLORS are in. This will most likely not be my makeup look for the wedding but I thought I'd share anyway. Let me know what you guys think.
