Outfit Of The Day: plaid & denim









I am obsessing over the long coat look this fall & I especially love it paired with this long plaid maxi! Oversized layers are basically what I live in during the cooler weather (who am I kidding I live in oversized clothes year round). Days like these where it’s sunny out, but 65 degrees, is when oversized layers come in handy because they’re easy to remove when you get too hot in the sun. This strappy dress also just compliments my long sleeved coat perfectly with the coloring… actually, can we just talk about this coat for a second? I am in love with it. It’s all dark denim AND it has a hood. PLUS it’s not even hot at all, it’s so light weight!!! Definitely cop yourself one, everyone needs it in their life, trust me. HAPPY FALL Y’ALL.

Coat: Zaful

Dress: Urban Outfitters

Shoes: Converse

Glasses: Honey mix


halloween costume ideas: mermaid out of water


Hello loveliesss! I am back with another Halloween costume idea & this one, I’ve got to say, might be my new favorite. Probably because this look is a Mermaid & what’s not to love about Mermaids. They’re majestic, mesmerizing, sexy, mysterious, & {real}. But honestly, I just think that with the colors I used & the shimmery, dewy features, it’s simply an all around beautiful look… one that is bound to make you stand out on halloween night! My goal was to shoot for a mermaid that had been out of water for too long & was starting to change back into a her scaly self. So that’s why I created patches of scales instead of scales all over my skin; plus, I think it’s prettier with just a few patches of scales, but totally feel free to change it up & make it how you like it!



You can either wear the face makeup with a fitted maxi skirt (to give the effect of the tail) paired with a bralette, or you can go all out & purchase an awesome mermaid co-ord (something like this or this)!! You can even just stick on some printed out shells like I did, stick em on your top, & you’re good to go! I just pinned the front pieces of my hair back so you can see the scales on my face & braided a couple strands in the front; but, a beautiful pastel blue or green wig (or really whatever colors you use) would look gorgeous & tie in the entire look so well. To find out what makeup/face paint I used to create this mermaid gal, keep reading below. ALSO GUYS, if you want me to do a tutorial on this look please let me know on social media or in a comment below & I’d be more than happy to!



Face paint: Walmart (no need to splurge on crazy expensive face paint, literally anything works if you use it right.)

Highlight kit: Anastasia Glow Kit

Eyeshadow: (for the scales) Makeup Forever Artist Palette

I want to see y’alls recreations of this halloween look, so please send me them over social media or in a comment!! Thanks so much for reading.

halloween costumes: snapchat filters

Hello everyone! Or shall I say.. BOO!!!! Who’s excited for Halloween? I am. Can you tell?


This year for Halloween I’m going to be sharing quite a few costume ideas with y’all; THREE individual ones to be exact & maybe, a couple group ones too… so stay tuned to find out! I already made one post on face makeup/paint ideas, so if you haven’t seen that already then go check it out here. AND SPEAKING OF FACE PAINT, today’s ideas are kind of similar. I did this one for all my gals who don’t wanna go full out and transform themselves into something like a freaky (but badass) skeleton, but still want to participate and attend some Halloween parties. AHEM, HERES YOUR CHANCE TO SWITCH IT UP FROM THE BASIC CAT COSTUME, Y’ALL. I am showing you 3 snapchat filters you can recreate that are super easy, adorable, & give you the choice to either wear a themed outfit with, or just throw on a cute & trendy one.






So this one is obviously the easiest of the bunch. Just apply really natural makeup & a ton of highlighter to give you that pale/glowing effect like the filter does; however, it does involve purchasing either a flower crown or flowers to make the crown on your own. Tip: If you want real flowers, purchase dead ones. These are going to hold better and last longer. If not, just buy fake ones from Michael’s, bobbi pin them in, & voilà! For your outfit, you can either wear all black and stick a snapchat sign to your shirt (so people really know what you are, lol) or throw something boho on to go along with it!





I really really love this one guys, I just think it’s so adorable! If you love animal costumes, definitely recreate this look. All you really need is a palette of colorful face paint (I got mine from cvs, so you don’t need to go to a special halloween store) & a printer. Once you’ve painted your face like the Bambi filter, print out a picture of the ears, take some double-sided tape & stick them to the side of your face! Don’t make the same mistake I did; make sure your ears aren’t too big because then they’ll look way too overpowering like mine, haha. I think it’d be so cute to wear a tan t-shirt dress with this look, that way your outfit doesn’t take away from your face paint!



(I couldn’t take a snap with this filter since it’s gone, so I had to find a picture of it online, lol)





To achieve the rainbow ralf snap filter, all you have to do is again, work with a colorful paint palette once you’ve done a very natural makeup look. One thing I suggest is to take a white eyeliner to your waterline to get the effect that your eyes are bigger and then taking some highlighter or white eyeshadow to the inner corners of your eyelid! I found it easiest to just put the rainbow colors one by one on my fingers and drag down from my lips, so you don’t even need a paintbrush! Tip: take a pencil and dip it in white paint to create the twinkles. I would either go all out and wear a rainbow outfit or I’d do a black outfit so my face stood out!


And there you have it guys, you’re real-life snapchat filters! If you recreate this look, be sure to tweet it or Instagram DM it to me & ALSO, look out for my next halloween post… I’m doing something super majestic👻🌊


halloween face paint ideas!


If you’re one of those people who may 1) just be lazy or 2) prefer not to go “all out” for halloween, face paint is right up your alley! You can still get away with not dressing up if you get super creative with your face makeup/paint, & no, drawing on kitty whiskers does not count. Halloween is one of the only times you can play dress up and transform into anything your heart desires, so don’t be a noob & participate. And it’s fun to challenge your artistic ability, so have fun with your look too!! Keep reading below to see some of the looks we came up with. I also attached inspiration photos that we used and any youtube tutorials that helped us create these looks!





I knew I wanted to show you guys a skull look because duh, skulls are bad ass. So, I had Mikaela create this look and she went with a super simple version. The thing I love about her version is that it’s so simple, she can wear a really sexy or trendy black outfit without looking like there’s too much going on. Wear the look with this super chic jumpsuit from forever21! Another idea that I absolutely love is this colorful glam skull created by youtuber Nicole Guerriero (she seriously creates the sickest looks). Skulls are just classic halloween looks and it’s cool to kind of make it your own. Also, if you don’t want to have a full face of paint/makeup on, half skulls look awesome too!




This ones for all those gals out there that just love the sexy kitty cat look. It’s time to step it up and be a dang lioness! As we mature, so do our halloween costumes, ladies. In my opinion, the lion look is better than the kitty anyways because it’s more powerful. With all the contouring and bronzing you’ll look super intense & fierce. Just make sure you tease your hair lots & wear an outfit that involves a fur vest like this one or neutral tones. Here’s the tutorial that Julia gained her inspo from!






So, I created this look on my own & it was honestly so much fun to do! I knew I wanted to make an intergalactic galaxy girl because I wanted to do something that incorporated a bunch of colors and textures like glitter. I think the perfect way to complete this look is by throwing on a black tube top & some funky galaxy/alien bottoms like these! Creating this was a little challenging, but also exciting because you basically just free hand and keep adding colors in different areas until you get the look of the galaxy that you want. After you get that base down, you can then add in fun features like constellations, black holes, or stars! I’m going to be creating a video tutorial of this too, so look out for it sometime this week!!


If you’re thinking of recreating these looks remember not to stress or worry too much if it doesn’t look the exact same or if you mess up along the way. It’s all about making them your own & having fun while doing it! Comment below which one was your favorite & what y’all are thinking of being this halloween💀🎃👻


pumpkin patches & thrift stores













Because of Hurricane Matthew & having been evacuated from Savannah, my roommates and I decided to take a lil road trip up to my hometown Orlando & wait out the storm. And no, it was not a bad idea, Matthew barely hit Orlando, lol! Although, what we weren’t anticipating was to be stuck here for another week as they clean up the aftermath in our beautiful Sav. So, because were basically on a weird hurricane break, I decided to show my roommates around Orlando. I took them to a thrift store called Orlando Vintage Clothing Co (which btw, go here if you want to find bomb pieces for your halloween costume) & we went crazy over all the vintage sunglasses. Like crazy. These beauties were all under $15 and from the greatest fashion decades like the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s. I’m pretty positive we each bought at least 2 pairs. Key word: at least. Anyways, after we got our sunnies, we headed to Lake Pickett road to pick up some pumpkins at the pumpkin patch so we could carve them and make yummy pumpkin seeds! You guys, both my roommates are from up North (New York & New Jersey) so when we showed up to the pumpkin patch they were both like, “wow Florida Fall sucks”😂. Apparently where they’re from donuts & apple cider are a thing?? So, I agree, Florida step your game up!!
