Teen Rebellion

My best friend and I put on dark lipstick and took photos outside my house. It was 96 degrees today. We've known each other since kindergarten and I know I can trust her with anything. We'll be starting up our junior year of high school on Tuesday. 

We're rebels with a cause.

I Was in a Fashion Show!

{Hair and styling by me; makeup by Ulta}

This past week I was blessed to have the opportunity to attend "Style School" at Fashion Camp OC in Irvine. I met friends who share a love for fashion, got a taste of the industry, and even a possible internship at their store! I styled 2 looks for the fashion show, that I also got to model.

The first look consists of a black t-shirt that we decorated according to a theme that we chose, mine was 90s-inspired. We then had to go to Claire's and pull accessories to match that theme. I chose a rainbow daisy headband, ying and yang bracelets, and a peace sign choker. I styled the look with my Forever 21 daisy shorts and my beloved Vans.

The second look was pulled from a boutique named Jasper Plum. I wore an over sized caramel sweater and a tight plaid skirt. (Which I could hardly move my legs in!!) I styled that look with my thrifted Michael Kors Wedges and a blue necklace, which I wasn't able to put on due to lack of time!

I was a crazy-fun experience that went by so fast! I would gladly do it all over again.

Rebel Princess

I was feeling a bit rebellious in my get-up the other day. I like how the dress, the red violet pout, and the ballet flats are cute and girly. On the other hand, The clashing prints, the lace, and the jewelry (which you can barely see in these photos) bring more of a Gothic, "rebellious" element to the look.

~Do you like to mix and match different styles of clothing to create an interesting look?~

Gettin' Older, Young at Heart

In just over two months I will turn 16, and I am completely ready for it. My birthday is in October of 1998, but I am a junior in high school, so I am one of the youngest. Most of my peers and friends are older than me, but I have always felt more mature than them. (Even though I've been told countless times that I look so young.)

After I finished preschool, my parents decided to ship me off to kindergarten straight away. I was constantly being challenged and pushed to my limits. I have usually succeeded beyond average in academics, but socially, I lagged behind. That is somewhat true today since I consider myself to have social anxiety.

Despite my yearning to be the same age as my peers for once, I am still young at heart. I believe that you can be mature but have fun at the same time. 

In the comments below, write about a time that despite your age, you went against the odds!

Easy 1950s Updo Tutorial

I was watching The Help on TV the other day, and I have been inspired once again by the era of the 1950s. (Even though The Help is set in the sixties, there are many similarties!)

If you couldn't tell by my outfit posts, I often stick to one or two hairstyles that I wear day to day. I decided to experiment with an easy 50s-inspired hairstyle that would look fantastic with your pearls! 

1) Start off with second-day hair, as it will likely hold the style better. 2) Section a 1 inch piece of hair. 3) Tease the section if you like and pin it high up on your head. 4) Pull up the rest of your hair into a bun. 5) Spray with shine spray or hair spray to lock it in!
