Update: What I've Been Up To!

     Hello lovelies! Today I thought I would do an update on what's been going on in my life. I feel like a lot has happened, especially in the month that I was M.I.A on this blog. So let's play catch-up!

     So what's been going on? Well, I started my second year of college! And it's definitely been full of a lot of adventures. In fact, I'm planning on staying in this weekend no matter what since I have 2 midterms next week and a paper due soon and it's probably the first weekend I've stayed in since I moved into my apartment.

     One of the things that happened at the beginning of the school year is that I learned how to step! Now, I thought I was going to be horrible at stepping. Dancing was already pretty difficult to me and I thought stepping would be the same. Luckily, I picked it up pretty well and I actually really enjoy stepping. We spent about a month and a half learning a routine and got it down really well. I did this with my sisters in my class for Theta Delta Beta. Theta Delta Beta, or The Dark Boyz, or just TDB, is a fraternity with a little sister program. It emphasizes on a brotherhood and a family vibe. The girls who do this program get a big bro and together, everyone becomes a family. I did this program last semester and this semester, we got to have a formal event where we celebrate officially becoming lil sisses and brothers of TDB. Friends and people from other organizations come out to congratulate us, the girls and the guys do their step routines, and after it's over, it's just one big party. And here are some pictures (or a lot) from the night!

But wait! Before you check out the pictures, here's our step. :)

Wishlist Wednesday: T-Shirt Dresses!

     Hello lovelies! For this week's Wishlist Wednesday, let's talk about t-shirt dresses. T-shirt dresses seem to be a new trend coming in, and I personally like it. It's casual and comfortable, perfect for school and can be dressed up for a weekend party and other occasions. Here are some I would put on my wishlist.

     So that's what's on my wishlist this week! Some of these t-shirt dresses (like 3, 4 & 6) are definitely on the more casual side but could also be dressed up. I would probably add ankle boots or Converse, a flannel tied around the waist, a statement necklace, and maybe a beanie for a more dressy but causal look that could probably work for a night out/party. For the more dressy t-shirt dresses (like 1, 2, & 5), I would probably just add delicate jewelry and chunky heels.

     Well, hope you enjoyed this post & I'll see you lovelies tomorrow!

OOTD: Falling to Pieces~

     Hello lovelies! Today is an OOTD post. I really love this outfit since it's mostly blacks and grays with some color and print on it. It's perfect for those upcoming fall and winter days which I'm so excited for. The weather finally started cooling down in the last few days and I'm so excited to start layering even more soon.

     My cardigan and shirt are both from Ross. I picked them up sometime last year and I still love them. The top has a giant wolf on it and a galaxy print and for some reason, only guys compliment this shirt, haha. I remember that I bought this cardigan because it was sort of different. It has unique draping where the pockets are which I really like and this can easily pull a look together. It's also not too thick so it's great to use as a layering piece under heavier clothing when it gets even cooler. The leggings are from Forever 21 and my combat boots are from Target. I picked these up when I had to learn how to step and I really like them. I've been wanting a pair of combat for a few years now so I'm glad I finally have them because I feel like they go with everything. I also have my eye on the burgundy ones so I might pick them up sometime soon.

     So that's my outfit for today! It'd be great if you could go hype it on Lookbook, just click on the link below! My other OOTDs are there as well.

     Thanks so much for reading and see you lovelies tomorrow!

Makeup Monday: Lashing Out!

     Hello lovelies! Today let's talk about lashes. Like I said in last week's Makeup Monday post, which you can check out here, having full and luscious lashes have become a trend for this fall season.

     So how can you achieve this look? If you want to go all out, use false lashes on the top and individual ones on the bottom and finish it off with mascara. However, most of us probably won't want to do that on a daily basis nor do we have the time or patience for it, so the best thing to do is to pack on the mascara. Don't worry, this season, it's okay to have spidery/clumpy lashes, haha.

     Another way to add more volume to your lashes is to use a dark eyeliner and to try tightlining. Tightlining is when you line your waterline and can also be called "invisible eyeliner." It adds definition without having to use a thick line for your eyeliner.

     So that's it for Makeup Monday! I think this trend is definitely worth trying out if you're obsessed with having thick lashes like I do. I love mascara and having full and defined lashes so this is something I'll probably be doing more often. Hope you enjoyed this post and thanks so much for reading! See you lovelies tomorrow!
