beach to street

It was "beach day" at my school this past Monday, since it is spirit week. I recently bought this cropped jacket from and this puka shell necklace (which changes to the color blue in the sun!), and I thought it would perfect for a beach themed day. The shorts are definitely my new favorite thing in my wardrobe. They are like the summer version of my ultra destroyed Wet Seal jeans.

tie dye + abbey lee

trend alert: tie dye



Proenza Schouler

C&C California $58

Forever 21 $8

One of my favorite trends this spring is tie dye. You can either make it look surfer girl with a cute swimsuits and sporty neon watches or make it tribal with a fringe necklace and gladiators. Along with the pictures from spring 2010 runways, I also added couple of affordable pieces you can buy to get the look.

Also, I thought this was a really good video someone made of Abbey Lee Kershaw. All the outfits she is wearing are amazing, I got so inspired. :)

beauty tricks

I have been really getting into experimenting with beauty and hair. I have a whole box of makeup and hair ideas that I have ripped out from Seventeen and Teen Vogue magazine now. Here are some pics of my favorite makeup and hair-dos I created! Oh, since we are on the subject of hair, I am looking for a non-expensive, but good quailty curling iron, any suggestions?
A lot of people ask if I crimped my hair when it is all wavy like this, but actually what I do is put 5 braids in my hair and sleep on it. When I wake up I take out the braids and wa-la, there are waves!

This is another way I curl my hair, I call is pincurling. I take a one inch section of my hair, twist it, put it in a mini bun, and then bobby pin it.

Okay, so I didn't paint my nails this color, a makeup artist at one of my photoshoots did. Nonetheless, I thought they were cool so I decided to show them to you. (yes, I am listening to Justin Bieber....)

Me in pigtails. For makeup, I tried wearing all different shades of pink for my eyes, cheeks, and lips.

My attempt at a side messy ponytail.
