Fashion loving the now: skirt and jumper combo


Ok so I thought a fashion trend post would be a great way to start the 2013 posts
 (yes its been that long since I have posted :0 ).

This trend I have been seeing alot in the high street and am guessing that it's gonna be big.

Get the look
You will need :
1) A skater skirt- purchasable from most high street stores
Black (Black) Black Belted Skater Skirt | 267827501 | New LookBlue (Blue) Mid Blue Denim Skater Skirt | 271771640 | New LookBlack Pattern (Black) Black Bird Print Belted Skater Skirt | 267944909 | New Look
2) Any kind of jumper that works well with the skirt
Dark Red (Red) Dark Red Wanted Stud Jumper | 270943161 | New LookBlue Pattern (Blue) White and Navy Stripe Boxy Jumper | 274695249 | New LookBlack (Black) Black Cheeky Drop Shoulder Sweater | 274452101 | New Look


tucking the jumper into the skirt also looks great, it gives you an hourglass figure however it depends on what look you are trying to achieve. 
Celebs like Cheryl have been recently spotted in this trend

I love this look I think it looks girly yet cool and is very easy to create without spending loads of money- which is always a bonus! ;)

Team this look with some kind of ankle boot as this completes the outfit plus adds to the practicality of the outfit given that it is winter.

P. S. Sorry I haven't posted in do long I've just been really busy with exams and such, however I hope to post many more posts in the NEAR future (note to self......)
Hope you enjoyed the first of many posts in 2013

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Twinkle Twinkle little star? a hint to today's trend........STARDUST

stardust is a range of different prints like galaxy and star prints,but also it can be items
 that have that unusual look to them or are just really glittery and make you shine like a STAR
its basically a space theme-its a fun trend!

so as you can see galaxy print is colourful and can update your winter wardrobe.
ITS JUST OUT OF THIS WORLD! (get it!!!not funny i know ;P )
i really like the dress as it looks really cool and edgy.
also the black ad white leggings would look amazing with a knitted jumper and leather jacket <3

also just gotta show you these shoes!

weird huh?
definitely a space look going on

more spacey wonders......

Glitter,sequins and shiny metallic make you shine like a star and look great for a party.

I have to say i like this trend for the fun of it i mean look at those shoes!

A little weird is good,it shows your bold,brave and interesting.

And a little weird is something this trend allows you to do.

Put YOUR own stamp on it!

Dark Romance:Hair and Makeup

I recently wrote a post about the trend Dark Romance, a grungy elegance.So to go with that look i thought i'd show you guys how to create the hair and makeup, cos lets face it this trend can only look complete with that oh so lovely textured hair and smouldering eyes ;)

Hair for this look (like I just mentioned) is full of texture,it looks almost like you have just got out of bed which you could try if you naturally have slightly messy hair in the morning ;) However if your like me and your hair is often straight and smooth you will need some assistance.VO5 give me texture range is designed to give hair lift and texture (ovs) simply spay onto dry or damp hair and start twisting and scrunching for about 30 seconds.

you can spray with hairspray if you wish, to secure.
And that's it! easy huh? 

The main feature: the eyes,want to be smokey, shades of blue,purple and black in my opinion work best.

When creating a smokey eye, make sure the darker shade is on the outer corner of the eye and the lighter shade on the inner (like the picture above).
Then line the eyes with black eyeliner for definition.
if you arn't handy with eye shadow just line your eyes with eyeliner and smudge until you get the desired smokey look.
Finally add mascara to complete!

Now you have a complete look to try and play with
hope you enjoyed

Dark Romance

"Dark romance", the chance for every girl to unleash their rocky side!
Dark romance is basically Gothic glam, and as you can imagine consists of black, black and more black.

This look isn't about stand out colours, but different textures,like leather, lace, and sequins.

here is how to create a dress look

Lace dresses

 keep it looking elegant.

add a jacket to rock it up


i find that with this look, applying coloured nail polish can give the outfit a needed POP of colour.
(Waring ALL black is tiresome)

If your not a fan of dresses, leggings look just as good epically lace and leather look.

extra ideas :)

hope you liked this trend Dark Romance will be doing a post on the hair and makeup side to this look
So stay tuned!

P.S this post was planned for about 2 weeks ago! was really busy with school and that, am ganna make sure i have time for another post soon!

NAIL,That Nail Art:October Edition

so i thought it was time to yet another nail tutorial, seen as they prove to be quite popular and i have no other ideas at the moment :)

So i was looking through a magazine when this advertisement caught my eye.

MUA Nail Beads
(beads similar have been called the caviar manicure eww!)
they're like little coloured balls that go on your nails, that if I'm being honest remind me of hundreds and thousands

see the resemblance!

anyway.......i think they look really cool espsilly when used on just the ring finger

how to apply the beads
  1. after applying a clear base coat apply a colour coat
  2. while still wet dip your finger into the beads
  3. remove finger from the pot of beads and apply a small amount of pressure to make sure they are on proply
  4. apply a top coat over the beads
and they're done!

You can get the beads from Superdrug , they come in a range of colours and are £3 which int bad

this nail art is something abit different,and the 3D balls create a great effect.i havent seen many people wearing them but thats no excuse for you not too! (if you like them that is)

Fashion Lovin' at The Now : Autumn Floral Jeans

As you know autumn is in full swing and so are the autumn trends, the dark red and berry coloured jeans are sold out in the nearest Primark to me! so I guess that means they're popular and a lot of people will be wearing them,which means everyone will look similar(I'm not saying don't wear them as you all look the same cos I do like the burgundy and berry tone jeans and it is fashion)
But why not try a different autumn trend that not everyone is wearing yet?
Autumn florals are a huge trend that make a big statement.
celebs such as Rhianna and beyoce have been spotted wearing this trend.
I think the jeans just complete their outfit.<3

The jeans make you stand out all right, so they need to be warn with confidence.
here are some of my favs.

I <3 these as they are more tonned down and incorperate the stud trend. 2 in 1 such a bonus!

if standing out  isnt your thing, try these. This style print and colour sceme are bang on trend and not too bright. :)

How to wear
its best to wear plain garments with floral jeans as then they catch peoples eye and the rest of the outfit doesnt can see in the pictures above part of what the stylist has paired with the jeans to give you more ideas.
these arnt the nicest picks but you get the idea keep it simple!

Thats all!

Hunger Games: Book review

I have to say I'm not a "book worm" as they call it and I only really read when i have to.
My point-books bore me!(normally)
However i recently read the Hunger games as a friend lent it to me over the summer. Thinking I'd just read the first page i took it.
But being truthful after that first page I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN !

i loved it!and even though i had seen the film i wanted to know what happend next,it also helped to explain the film as it can be confusing at times,and i know enjoy it more as i understand it!

i finished the book within a week and a half (thats like super human for the rate i read at)
and i wanted to know what happed next so i bought the next two books(from good old Morrisons)
And love them two i read the second one twice!

Even if you dont normally read like me,i really reccomend the sieries of Hunger Games books,they are
 urgh-mazing and like i said i could not put it down.
if i was reading this id think "narh"but honestly you wont know untill you enter "the world of the games"

please comment with your views on the book or film
hope you liked
