Affordable & Comfortable |Halloween Costumes

Tis the season for frights for some and comfy sweaters for all. So you’ve been invited to a Halloween party but you’re not sure what to wear? Well you’ve come to the right place! This year I am focusing on affordable ways to dress up once again with a twist called comfort. Many girls dress up to look skanky on Halloween, however, here I try to keep it classy without looking frumpy. Seeking some Halloween d.i.y. costumes? Don’t worry d.i.y.’s are definitely on there way, patience, starting Saturday will be the first Halloween d.i.y. of this season, for now enjoy the d.i.y ideas in this post.


The Boyfriend, The Fiancee, The Husband

Are you the creative one and him not so much? Would he feel tortured to walk around in a full blown costume made of itchy fabric and hours of your hard work? Try a onsie, he will love you even more for it! If you want to be pooh bear try a yellow dress with a cropped red top paired with d.i.y ears. He can be Eeyore to match plus you’ll both be able to reuse the outfits thoughout the year. Want to be Sally? This one is a little tough to diy so I would suggest heading to Hot Topic to pick up the costume dress which you can still rewear thoughout the year, if you’re a die heart fan. He can be Jack in comfort and style, who wants to really walk around with a giant skull head anyway.

Buttons & Hook and eye Closures | Beginner

Back in high school I remember my favorite pair of pants button falling off through the mid school day. It was odd since the rivet on the jeans only popped off the top circle portion rather than the entire thing. After trying to press it back on, I scrambled to find anything to keep them closed until lunch when I could change. Eventually, my friend found a safety pin to temporarily fix the situation. It was beyond embarrassing even though only a couple people knew. Now I always keep safety pins in my purse, backpack, car, literally everywhere.

Learn how to fix a broken button on your pants with tips I learned from fashion school. This tutorial is for beginner level sewers, it’s easier than you think. Also, find out how to add extra security to your pants with a hidden hook and eye closure for those pairs you love a little too much.

The Truth Behind | Fashion Hauls

Magazines, Pinterest, YouTube, and even the various people we cross paths with on the street spark inspiration for new trends, different styles and all things fashion. Recently, it has been brought to my attention that several famous youtubers and social media gurus spoke up about the fact that they buy items simply to use them as content. Fashion hauls are a huge part of this massive consumer issue of want, want, NEED. Titles such as “spending too much at Target” or “massive summer hauls” draw in a large crowd but why?

Costco Clothing |Review & Haul

Recently, I have been obsessed with shopping the clothing section at Costco. The deals are unbelievable but what about the quality overall? Whenever you shop no matter what the price tag says, there are a few things to check to make sure the tag matches the item’s quality worth. The type of material, origin it was made in, stitching and dying process all contribute to the actual garment’s quality rather than just paying for the brand itself.

Swimwear 2019 |Trends Cheap VS. Expensive

Trends in swimwear go across the board from expensive to cheaper alternatives. When clothing is more expensive it does not mean that it is higher quality. Some of these dups are better then their counter parts so keep that in mind when shopping this season.


The Two Parter

One of my favorite trends this year is this two part swimsuit or bikini suspenders? Its unique flare adds something extra to this season’s selection. I would much rather add the yellow set to my collection. Plus it is not really two parts, it just looks that way. The lines are horizontal but since they vary in size it still has a sliming effect. In addition the color’s contrast which is a fun effect. On the right side the diamond swimsuit is cool but lacks vibrancy and a shape aid.

 

Aerie ~ Layered One Piece: $32.97

Free People ~ Charlie Bikini Top 2: $135 + Charlie Jumper 2: $180 = $315

Disneyland | Apparel & Snacks Haul

So… I may be obsessed with Disney merch because I have another haul from Disneyland. What can I say, I love the company and one day hope to design merchandise for them. Alright onto the haul, these are a few bits that I picked up recently to add to my collection.

Last summer I received the kids version of this shirt since they were sold out of the adult one. The children’s shirt fits well, it is just a different design. Since I suffer with anxiety Rex suits me well. ha. Pro Disney tip though, if you fit in the children’s sizes at the park they are a lot cheaper. Sometimes they even have the exact same design!

Lately I have been loving white, this sweatshirt seemed perfect as the sleeves are a mixed grey which will prevent me from being overly paranoid of it getting dirty. The sketch design is beautiful too! To view the front of this sweatshirt look at the featured image at the top if you are reading on the website, those on email you will need to click to head over to the site.

Yummy in my tummbly, I love Pooh bear and just like him my tummy loves SNACKS! These Minnie’s Sweet graham cookies are my new favorite snack from the park and best graham cookie I’ve ever tasted. I know you’ve seen the Cinderella bow before but I also got the Ariel version! Love these new light up bows, they bring a touch of fun to any hairdo.

What is your favorite Disneyland Park snack?

Gym Shark First Impressions | Spring Haul

For a while now I have been keeping an eye out on a couple of brands that I have yet to experience myself. After watching a couple of review videos online for the brand Gym Shark, it seemed to be a bad idea to try as most of them harped on the fact that most of their items were not squat proof and were prone to camel toe. Two qualities no one wants from their apparel, especially their active wear. Now that the company has been around for a couple years I was hoping that things would improve which is why I decided to give them a shot.

Included at the bottom is of course an in depth review of each item in “real time”, kind of.

The reason this was not a try on haul was mainly due to the fact that pieces did not fit or were too see through to show.
