Guess what today is? Halloween! I wanted to show you the costume I wore to the dance on Friday and I will be wearing tonight. I was a flapper girl. Before daisy dukes and bikinis on top, we had Daisy Buchanan (The Great Gatsby.) So here's my outfit (also worn with make up, my hair in a bun, and nude-coloured fishnets.)

How boo-tiful! Flapper dress from Forever21

Le Chateau heels

Vintage bag I've had since I was 3!

Pink jeweled feather hair clip from H&M

Estee Lauder lipstick in Apricot Sun

And...the pumpkin I carved today! It was supposed to be my Tiffany & Co. bow pendant, but kind of broke while I was carving it. I tried. Here it is:

Enjoy and have a safe and fun Halloween! xoxo

Ballerina Buns

I'm loving the new trend of high ballerina buns. Although it's really hard for me to do since my hair is very thick and has layers. Many celebrities such as Blake Lively, Whitney Port, Sarah Jessica Parker, Cameron Diaz, Hilary Duff, and many more have been spotted with this chic updo.

You can create this on your self by following these instructions*
Spritz hair with touchable hairspray to give you hold and body. Next, brush your hair into a high poly and secure it with an elastic. Hold three-inch sections of your hair straight up; starting with the ends, roll hair under to form a doughnut. Secure with bobby pins at the base.

It's Out With The Old...

...and in with the new! So I've had this Tommy Hilfiger watch for about 3 years. I got it in Florida in 2007 for about $30. Honestly, I need to wear a watch every single day or I'm lost. I have about 3 which I use but the band on the Tommy was getting wrecked and my dad remembered we bought a pearlescent alligator band from Holt Renfrew a while ago. Original price, $249. Paid price $50. I've always wanted a white or white-toned coloured watch. What a difference a band can make!
