Summer Dream Look

MY DARLINGS, MY ANGEL-FACES, MY DOE-EYED BEAUTIFULS, MY GORGEOUS FOLLOWERS, MY LOVELIES, MY DOVES.

I’ve been gone for SO long and I’m so sorry.

I know I haven’t pieced together a look for a while so here ya go!

So, for starters, I picked out my ultimate dream bikini, or “midkini”, from Delias! Image

I like how it has cups..for someone who has small boobs (like me) that adds some dimension.!

Plus, the mint/floral pattern is SO CUTE. I feel like it would make tanned skin pop, and really be an eye-catcher. I’m actually ordering this midkini, ‘cuz I love it that much! ❤

Check it out here. It’s on sale, ladies!

And from Etsy, I picked out a fabulous sand-dollar hairpin to compliment the summer idea.Image

It’s super beachy, but simple enough to not be distracting. It’s totally mermaid-esque. And you’ll probably be playing in the water…so you don’t really want to have too much accessories.

And now…BODY GLITTER!! Okay, seriously, it’s not just for strippers. A little on the shoulders and legs can look really flattering and fun. Image

I picked out a body glitter from Victoria’s Secret, but a lot of companies and brands have glitter sprays, sticks, creams, lotions, or powders. You just have to look around!

Online, VS has three flavors: “Marshmallow Gold”, “Candy Baby”, and “Cocoa Bronze”. All of them sound delicious to me!

Next, why not add some fun earrings?

These ones are from the “Bauble Bar” at Baublebar.com

I just feel like they’re simple enough to not take anything away from the outfit…but they add an adorable detail!

Off to bed, then, for sweet, summery dreams.

MAC in the Mail & Cute Workout Clothes

I’ve been pestering my mom to purchase my MAC stuff for months now (I got exceptionally good grades and she PROMISED), so now I’ve got a whole bunch of stuff coming for a review!

And one certain product I picked out was “Candy Yum Yum” lipstick. EEEEEK!! Omgomgomgomg.

I heard Candy Yum Yum is like the QUEEN of pink lipsticks. So bright…so iconic…so crazy and daring! For those who don’t know what I’m talking about, here’s some 411 on Candy Yum Yum.

Candy Yum Yum is a LEGENDARY MAC lipstick, and for a while, there this huge buzz about it on Youtube.  Everyone had to have taste of Candy Yum Yum! Everyone!

Anyway..it’s basically a bright, neon pink with a matte finish. I think it looks better on darker skin tones, but I hope I can rock it!

And BTW, guys I found an awesome website for cute workout clothes! Forever 21 Active Wear is seriously the bomb-diggity. When your Diet-Train crashes and burns (like mine), there’s nothing left to motivate you than a pair of adorable athletic capris and a matching sports bra. Image

WHOOO! I’m gonna go workout!

Inspired Outfit

Today, because I was very bored, I decided to piece together an “inspired” outfit. An inspired outfit is basically a look that someone or someTHING inspired me to make!

I just watched “My Week With Marilyn.” Marilyn Monroe is such a classic beauty icon, and wore a lot of gorgeous things. (Short review on the movie: The actress played her extremely well! Check it out when you have the chance!:} )

So, first off, I chose a swimsuit, not a dress, for a more beachy look.

Image

It’s the “Magicsuit Solid Gabby One-Piece Swimsuit” from Soma.  It just has that vintage pin-up feel, and reminds me a lot of one that Marilyn wore! Marilyn+Monroe+black+bathing+suit

Next, I picked out some high heels! It’s all about the shoes, ladies!

Who could rock heels with a swimsuit? Marilyn could!Image

I know everything looks very “basic black”, but Marilyn was the epitome of classic. These are the “High Heel Platform Pumps” from Peltz Shoes.

And last, I chose a pair of black, vintage cat-eye sunglasses from RetroCitySunglasses.   Image

Add some red lipstick, and that’s the cherry on top of a fabulous outfit. ❤

(I like to use MAC’s “MAC Red”.)

Hopefully this outfit wasn’t too boring for you guys!

How To Look Good in Pictures

Hi my adorables!

Have you ever looked back at super-old pics of yourself and CRINGED? Wondered what the heck you were thinking back then? Wanted to just wipe out those embarrassing year-books? Yeah, me too.

Want to know how to look good in pictures? Of course you do! Here’s my life-saving information:

Step 1: 

If you’re at a place where you KNOW people will be snapping pics left and right, wear a little makeup to conceal flaws and put the oil-slick skin at bay. You don’t have to wear a lot, just enough to look like you, but enhanced and confident. nomakeup-look

Step 2: 

Wear some clothes that make you feel attractive and comfy!! If you’re wearing a too-tight, white dress that pinches in all the wrong places, chances are you won’t look, or feel, so good. (That is, unless you’re a Victoria’s Secret angel.)

Wear something appropriate for the event, that goes with you’re body type and coloring. This will get rid of all worries about clothing problems!

Step 3: 

Well, your facial expression usually plays a big part in how your photo turns out. If you’re having a good time, put on your best, genuine smile. In my opinion, everyone on this whole wide Earth looks better when they smile. Instead of ducking under a table, angle your face towards the camera and smile like you’re meeting a close friend. Or, make a funny-face! Have fun! It IS just a photo, after all.

Anyway, photos are photos. But, I hope these tips were somewhat-helpful, because these are things that I use all the time when I’m around cameras. Of course, you probably won’t look like Marilyn Monroe, OR a Victoria’s Secret angel, but you’re not supposed to! You’re unique. And you’re beautiful! When you look in the mirror, you can know that no one else looks like you, and that makes you special.

Today

Hello my sunshines!!

I’m Isabella, and I thought I might want to tell you a bit about myself before I begin my blog. So…I guess you could call this my “formal intro”. Cue the theme music!!! ….Hah, just kidding…I’m not THAT important :}

Anyway, today was totally bleak. It was rainy, gray, and cold, a day for leggings and tights which I stubbornly refuse to wear. I hate tights. They just make me feel so trapped and bundled-up, and I don’t like that at all. I’m not saying I dress skimpy or anything, but tights and me just don’t mix well.

I wore this today: Image

A lot of it was old clothes, dazzled up by new layers I got over Christmas. Of course, it did get some bitchy comments at school, but hey, whatevs.

As Lady Gaga says “I was born this waaaaaaay!”
