Happy Halloween!

November 8, 2015
Boo! Hi guys-

Happy Halloween!

Although this post is up after Halloween, I still hope you guys had a great All Hallows Eve! As you probably didn't know, Halloween just so happens to be my all time favorite holiday, so this year I really tried to go all out. Check out my costume highlights!

This first costume of mine was the creepiest one out of all of my costumes. If you didn't know, I was The Chesire Cat from Alice and Wonderland! This was so much fun to dress up as, especially because of how awesome the makeup came out. I got the ears, face stickers, and face paint from Spirit Halloween. The tank top was from Forever 21, and I bought cheap black and white striped leggings from Walmart, cut them into shorts, and colored in the white stripes with purple Sharpie and viola! Chesire Cat colors :) I finished the costume off with purple striped leggings that were also from Spirit Halloween, and crawled around in my cute DIY costume.

This next costume was one that I still got to paint my face for; I was a cute Indian the second night! This look was on the more casual side, so it was super comfortable to go out in. I got all of the components of my outfit from my dorm room, so this look cost me nothing! I found the headband underneath my bed, and the feathers from an old dream catcher I had. I borrowed the shirt and moccasins from my roommate, and wore ripped jeans. Talk about comfy.

This last look was my absolute favorite- I'm still raving about it! I decided to be Ariana Grande as my third look :) I chose to be Ariana from the Problem music video, and Kate accompanied me as Iggy! We had so much fun dressing up as them for Halloween, and I love the way they turned out. I got both the dress and white boots from Amazon for a total of $50! That's pretty good considering how perfect the outfit came out. Be excited to see which Ariana I am for next year!

Well, what'd you think?! Not too shabby, eh?
I hope you guys enjoyed my three Halloween looks, because I know I enjoyed dressing up as them. Be on the lookout for my next post!

Get The Look For Less- Scream Queens Style

October 27, 2015
Listen up pledges-

As President of Kappa Kappa Tau, I must say that you are not our typical pledge class... you're in desperate need of a Chanel makeover. Don't fret- here's your guide to being a killer Chanel }:) (hehe get it?)

For all my fellow Scream Queens fans out there, I give you a Chanel Oberlin and Chanel Number 2 DIY costume that you could easily put together with things in your own closet! Check it out-

My best friend Kate and I had waaaay too much fun recreating Scream Queens looks with our own twist! For my look, I chose a pink dress from Forever 21 for $20.00, a fur jacket that I already had that's also from Forever 21, and heels I previously owned that I got from Call It Spring. For me, I only spent twenty dollars on my whole look! That's what I call a successful DIY.

When recreating a Chanel Oberlin look, your go-tos are pink, fur, and heels. She loves anything expensive, pastel, and furry. So definitely keep that in mind when going to your own closet for inspiration! As for hair and makeup, I chose to do her signature side bang and straight do, with a simple brown eye shadow color, and berry lip. De-Chanel-icious!

As for Kate, she recreated her look for Chanel number 2. Her dress was one that she already had from Windsor, a fur jacket from Forever 21, and white heels also from Windsor that she had lying in her closet. Kate's costume cost her $0.00- no way you could beat that! 

When duplicating the Chanel Number 2 look, Kate kept her makeup light, as well as her lip color. For her hairstyle, she did the classic Ariana Grande half up, half down, and I think she killed it! (Haha good one, right?)

Well that's all I have for you, I hope you enjoyed our DIY look, and it inspires you to get creative with your closet this Halloween! Happy Chanel-o-ween, idiots! 

P.S. check out Kate's Scream Queens video on her YouTube channel, and subscribe to her!

The Heartbreaking Truth of a Heartbreak

July 8, 2015
You know "Writer's Block"? The unexplainable sense where you can't put your thoughts and feelings into words? Heartbreak is kind of like that- when you aren't sure how to explain the gut wrenching, depressingly hopeless feeling you have when you've lost the one that you love.

I'm 19 years old. They say that in any of your teen years, you don't really know what love is, but I'm calling bullshit. No one can tell me I don't feel true love for someone. No one can claim that I don't know what love is. No one can convince me that the feelings I have for another don't qualify as legit ones. Yes, I'm 19 years old, and I know what true love means for myself.

To me, true love is the feeling you get on a Sunday afternoon. True love is a candid of your best friend laughing. It's the overwhelming feeling of adventure and livelihood that you get from going on a trip somewhere. Now add someone who holds a very special place in your heart, one who you would sacrifice anything for, and who betters you in every way. It only makes sense that you want that person there with you through all of those things, right? The one sitting with you on that Sunday afternoon. The one smiling in that picture. The one driving the car on the trip you're going on. That's part of true love. The want for your person to experience everything under the sun with you, even the events that seem insignificant or small. Your Love.

My Love does not love me the way I love him- that I know. But even so, that doesn't defer the truth of my emotions.
I guess I love too hard- maybe my love can be a little overwhelming? Well... I guess that's good. At least I know that when I feel something, I feel all of it; I don't half ass things. At first, I believed that the way I loved had to be wrong, considering my Love doesn't feel the same. After some time, I realized that I am not the one who needed to be fixed- I was the passionate and devoted star-crossed lover, that believed my future was in the eyes of another. I am in touch with my feelings, and what my heart believes, and even though there is so much pain in non-reciprocated feelings, there is also beauty in it.

The beauty to be able to love hard. The beauty in knowing exactly what you want. The beauty in feeling things so harsh, and so vividly. The beauty of feeling pain. Not so much the pain itself, but the fact that an emotion that is supposed to bring you nothing but happiness, correlates the direct opposite.

There is a plan that is constructed for all of us, one that you would find in a story book. This plan is already written and the words will not falter, but there is no way of skipping ahead. Realize that your plan, your future, does not depend on someone else. The fact of the matter is, when you find your Love, their story fits into the spaces in between the words of your life. Live in the time you are experiencing right now, because you never know what is coming next. If you tell yourself this over and over, it might save you from insanity.

Heartbreak is writer's block, but it won't last forever. Pretty soon the block dismembers, and the heart mends. Wait for that.

"Maybe one day we'll find that place where you and I could be together, and we'll catch our dreams within the waves of change. So smile for me one last time and believe that we'll meet again. Until then, I'll be missing you."

Ten Things You'd Rather Hear From Your Best Friend

March 30, 2015
Let’s face it- sometimes the truth is the last thing we want to hear, especially when it comes down to the choices we make in life. It’s never easy to be told that we are doing something wrong, or rather, we could be doing something better. I guess the only thing that would make being told “you need to shape up,” is hearing it from someone we trust, someone we love, and someone who isn’t related to us by blood, but is close enough-someone like a best friend. 
Here are 10 things you’d rather hear from your BFF.

1.) “You’re being dumb about this.” As long as the situation calls for it, this statement is sometimes the only thing we can hear that will make us step back for a second and rethink things. Our best friends only want the best for us, and that’s something we can’t achieve if we aren’t thinking things through, andthinking about them properly.

2.) “That kind of does make you look fat.” Now I know this is a tough one, but that doesn’t make it any less true. If you are looking a tad bigger in a certain dress, you’d want to know wouldn’t you? Of course not from anyone in your family, and definitely not a boyfriend… so who’s left? Your bestie- she had your back when you thought flare jeans were in, and she’ll have your back now. Put down the strapless!

3.) “Put yourself in their shoes.” Typically, it’s hard for anyone to see things from someone else’s perspective, especially when we think that other person is dead wrong. It’s our best friend’sduty to make sure we take all things into consideration when getting angry with someone. This makes us realize that maybe what we’re doing or how we’re acting really isn’t fair to another person, and we should try to understand where they’re coming from. 

4.) “You need to support my decisions, just like I support yours.” Often there is so much going on in our lives that we forget to be understanding of other people’s choices, and mistakenly dismiss them. It’s important to give someone else the support and guidance that they give us, and it’s okay to be reminded of that. You may believe one thing, but that doesn’t mean everyone else thinks that, too. Let people make their own decisions, and if they end up being wrong, let them learn, but be by their side through it allListen to those special few who encourage you to do what you already know in your heart is right, and be one of those special few for someone else.

5.) “You need to be strong.” We like to tell ourselves that we are dealing with things the best we can, and that being this upset is inevitable. It’s hurtful when someone tells you to just “get over it.” Hearing that makes it seem like your feelings are dumb and unnecessary, and that’s where your best friend comes in. They’re going to tell you that it’s okay to be upset about this certain thing, but that you need to be stronger, and you can’t dwell. Spend tonight crying over it with some ice cream, but tomorrow it’s time to pick your head up and be better than you were yesterday.

6.) He treats you like sh*t, and you’re a diamond in the rough.” Boys are the trickiest when it comes to what you think you deserve, and what you actually do. Everyone loves a good bad boy, but at the end of the day, do you really like the ignored texts and the ban on PDA? Be honest with me here- I think not. Your best friend will be the first to tell you that you deserve better, and to ditch the dud.

7.) “Walk the talk, don’t just talk it.” My grandma always told me, “When we characterize people by their actions, we are never fooled by their words.” Best friends take this advice and act on it, sometimes without even knowing they are doing so. They don’t just talk the talk, they walk it out, and they remind us to do the same. Never be afraid to stand up for who you are, and to own it. 

8.) “Your happiness comes first.” It’s nice to please people and to sit back and see them genuinely smile, but remember- your happiness is just as important. Putting yourself first does not mean being “selfish,” it means being self-aware. It means not forgetting to love yourself, too. This is something that your best friend will always remind you of, when you seem to forget it.

9.) Forgive.” Forgive. The best thing to be able to do for yourself is to forgive, but never forget. Of course, don’t hold a grudge, but don’t dismiss that it happened. Learn from it and let go of the negative things that brought you down at one point. Let your heart be filled with nothing but love, positivity, and things that bring you joy. Your best friend will always lift you above all the BS, and do their best to keep you there.

10.) “Never forget who you are.” If your best friend really is your best friend, this will be one of the most important things they want to tell you. You came into this world as one person, and that is something you should be proud of. Live your life the way you want to- after all, youre only living for yourself.
