**Fashion** :)

Hello, y'all! Ya know, a lot of the time I'll say, "Post Coming Tomorrow!" and totally not know what tomorrow will be like. And that is most definitely what happened the other day. My whole time in Michigan was CRAZYY and I didn't have time to post! :P I decided to update you a little on fashion with a segment I will call............................

                                                             FASHION POLICE!!
The fashion police are here to help you with your outfit. They'll inform you on what the latest trends are, how to make popular things modest, and what not to wear! :) I'm really excited to start this. I will be using mostly fashions from Polyvore, for ease of showing them to you! So...let's get started!

First of all, here is a style that is trending. It's called.....Cowgirl! :) This is a pretty easy one to make modest, because jeans, so long as they aren't skintight, are pretty modest. And cowgirl shirts, easily modest with camis.'s one I created!
You have your plaid cowgirl shirt, with your dark jeans. To add a touch of more cowgirl, I added the hat, the boots, the horseshoe earrings,the Navajo bag with fringe, and the western bracelet. For makeup, I went with a natural light brown with just a touch of mascara. Finally, for the hair, to add flair to the typical braids, I did two fishtail braids.

Next, you have a lovely fall or spring outfit with lots of color! Outfits with dark bottoms and colorful tops are most definitely trending right now. This outfit can be done with either of the 4 shoes I show. You can use the pink Converse tennies, the pink ballet flats, pink sandals, or pink suede boots. i went with a black lacy butterfly scarf to tie in the dark bottom with the bright top. The accessories are all matching and contrasting with the colors!

Next outfit is a vintage dress. Vintage is at the top of the fashion charts these days. It's popping up everywhere! Classic and vintage have become the style now. I love them, because they are modest, and if not, can easily be made modest! They show true feminine beauty.
This outfit has a checked dress with an offset collar with three black buttons. It is simply gathered at the waist to slim down. It comes with a light pink cardigan to add a little soft color to the dress. It comes with a pink oval necklace, pink high heels, pink aviator sunglasses (for a touch of modern with the vintage), a pink clutch for a night at the theatre, pink flower earrings, a pink sapphire ring, and then, a simply dramatic black rose bracelet.

That's all I will do for now, because I need to go get ready to go to my Grandma's house to decorate a gingerbread house with my brother! (who cares if we're both teenagers! It's fun!!) See you in a few days with a new fashion police post. And now, 10/4 from the police. :)

Road Trip!

Hey y'all! Sorry about that last post. I didn't know that it would post my Polyvore to my blog! :) Speaking of which....have any of you heard of Polyvore? It is the coolest website. Evah. It allows you to create outfits for free and is SO much fun!! I'll be posting a lot of fashion through that. So, I'm in MI right now on a road trip to see my Grandma and Grandpa. My dad and I just got here tonight, and we're hanging out! I'll have lots of time to write for you guys and post outfits from Polyvore. I may even do a Fashion Friday-special edition! :) To those of you who need it, here's the link to my old blog where you can read how much of my boarding school story I've posted.

Feel free to read old posts and things there and catch up on my story! I'll be posting a new installment soon. So....stay tuned for a post tomorrow!!

Goodbye for now! (and if none of this makes sense, that's because I woke up at 4 this morning and it's currently 11 PM.) ;)

Culinary Christmas Crazy!

So...I'm trying out this Blogsy app on the we'll see how it works! I've totally been into cooking lately, and for my birthday, I got a BUNCH of cooking accessories, including a Babycakes cupcake maker! It makes 6 snack-size cupcakes at a time and takes about 6 minutes to bake them! Ever since my birthday a week ago, I've made 4 different things in it! I made butter pecan cupcakes for my sister's boyfriend's birthday, triple chocolate ones just for fun, red velvet cupcakes for church, and bacon and egg toast cups for lunch! I've had SOO much fun!! Today my mom and I decided to blast a Carolyn Arends Christmas CD and bake cookies....They are these amazing cookies called Chocolate Snowballs (family recipe!) and they are shortbread cookies with chocolate chips and diced pecans rolled in powdered sugar! :) Mmmmmm..... I will be posting pictures of cupcakes and things soon!! (We'll be baking LOTS of Christmas cookies soon, don't worry!) Well. I'm off to go hang Christmas lights in my room!

Fashion Wednesday-Black Chic

Hello world! Today I dressed for a Fashion Friday, then realized it was Wednesday! :)

I call this one "Black Chic!" You can wear it with any bright colors and it is a very slimming, simple outfit. I like to pair this with my new royal blue coat, and depending on whether you're going for a casual outfit, or dressing a little more formally, you can pair it with the boots or the high heels. And, I like to wear my new pink scarf as a contrasting color to the royal blue coat, and then carry my pink zebra purse! Here are the pictures and specs of my outfit.

My Outfit:
Sweater Dress:Marshall's-$14
Purse: Charlie Girl-Birthday Present
Coat: Kohl's-Birthday Present
Beret: Claire's-$3
Earrings: Kohl's-Birthday Present
Scarf: Wal-Mart-Birthday Present
Boots: Kohl's-$15
High-Heels: Angels-$14
Hair: Braid, as usual! ;)

Happy Wednesday everyone! Be on the lookout for more fashion soon!

Au Revoir!

Experiments and Ecstasy!

Hello Everyone! I just created this blog now that I'm finally old enough to have a Blogspot! I played around with color schemes and pictures this morning, and tried to make this blog look presentable! I want to thank all my dedicated readers on Homeschoolblogger for following me over here!

I recently had a birthday, and I wanted to share with you some of the outfits and books I got! I had seen this blue coat at Kohl's a while ago, and absolutely fell in love with it! And my wonderful family got it for me for my birthday! Here's the link to the coat. Now they only have it in Junior's Plus, (which was not the one I got since I got a normal Junior's XS) but it was the only one I could find in the color I got.

Then, I got my first pair of real high-heels. I don't have a picture of them, but they are black and have a strap across the front of the shoe with a little black button on the side. Then, my wonderful grandma and grandpa got me a pink sweater dress with lace across the bottom from Charming Charlie!

My sister also got me a hot pink scarf to contrast with my royal blue coat! It's wonderful and warm!!

I'll be posting a new Fashion Friday for y'all soon! (If you're new to this blog, Fashion Friday is something I did on my Homeschoolblogger site. Every Friday, I'd post a picture of my outfit!)

See you soon!
