Inspiration Of The Day: Blair Waldorf

Blair has been such an inspiration for me. I have to admit she's a b*tch and really mean most of the time. But the times that she is sweet are so memorable. They always seem to be moments around Chuck lol. I love them together and I really hope that in this last season they end up together forever!! 
Her sense of style has grown on me, I use to hate her school girl oriented clothes but after a season I was hooked on those knee highs and headbands! Then when she graduated and became a "lady" her style evolved to such a glamorous, timeless kind. Truly the modern Audrey Hepburn as she always dreams of her which is another thing I love about her! She's so passionate and never lets anything get in her way. She doesn't care what people think and expresses herself bluntly. Truly an inspiration of courage and style. Enjoy the photos!

Mini College Series: The Fashion Queen Goes To College

Okay so I'm doing this mini college series because I'm super excited to be off to college and I think it will be helpful for any fashionista that is going to college for the first time. I'm learning all this as I go so forgive me if I get things wrong or they don't come out perfect!

This first series is going to be about how to transition from High School to College.

Everyone tells me that college is extremely different then high school. Everyone is there to learn and no one is looking at you, well I seriously can't believe it till I see it. 
People always look at others and there may not be such a close knit student body but I know that there are still cliques. I guess I'll find out when I get their. 

 Another thing people have said is that the teachers don't don't care if you come to class or not. 
I guess cause they get paid whether you're there or not. But I don't think that is the case. I think it depends on the teacher and whether you truly want to learn.

Let's also try and remember that college is bigger and more impersonal in my opinion. 
This means that it's abit harder to make friends, at least for me it is since I am a very shy person. I find it  difficult to go up to strangers and start talking. So for me I would get to know others by the 'friends of friends' method. 

I never went to high school but I always thought that it was the time to dress how you wanted and to express yourself through your clothes. This is why I don't understand why college would be so unfashionable! Like you're becoming an adult now why not dress the part! 
I know many wont want to use up their nice clothes but at least get some nice clothes for college. 
That's why you go on a make to school shopping spree! If you saw my post about the new school want list that's exactly what it was! 

Lastly, I seriously don't believe that college should be boring, or unfahionable. It should be fun! So take electives, try new things, meet new people. Find out something you never knew about yourself!
Remember this is the short period before you head into the real world, take advantage and use it to the max! 

My next series will be tomorrow and I'll be talking about the College Outfits! My favorite part of going to school, dressing up.

Batman: The Dark Knight Rises

I'm sooo sorry this post is being posted super late but it's because I had a special date to see the new Batman movie!! OMG I've been dying to see it ever since I heard about it last year! I knew catwoman would be in it but had no idea who the other villain would be. Some said it would be the joker and others said it would be the riddler but it was actually Bane. This movie was PHENOMENAL!!! Omg I just can not hide my excitement and joy over the latest installment to the Batman trilogy!! I wish they would make another. Christopher Nolan is one of the greatest directors ever and I really hope he makes another batman!!! If you haven't seen it GO NOW!!! 
Here's what I wore! 

BTW I want to mention that I'm very proud of Christian Bale for visiting the injured people of the Aurora, Colorado shooting. Heroes can be real, not just the villains.

Feeling Fancy...

Here is my outfit for last night!! I absolutely love this dress! It's so feminine and girly and it has a fancy back. Omg I didn't even realize it till I got home and tried it on again that I saw the keyhole opening! It's such a suttle little skin exposure that it makes it mysterious and appealing. Love those little details. I also fell in love with the color. The pictures don't do it justice, but the color is a bright jade. The closest it gets to is the second picture. I also love the ruffles on my sleeves, they give it an airy floaty vibe. 
Enjoy the video at the end! :) 

The front is very simple and has a crew neck style front. 

Unbuttoned to show where the slit it :)

Buttoned :)

Spoiler! My Favorite Shows

Okay guys, I have to talk about my favorite shows! Some have started some are about to start and some are going into their last season! So here we go! 

Let me know your favorite shows below?

Pretty Little Liars,
This show has been one of my favorite shows ever since 2010 in its premire!! Omg it has been a show that never sucked and never got canceled! I really hope they finish it strong and I'm thinking they will finish it this season cause theres only so much that can happen... so you think! Aria is my favorite character, maybe I relate to her shortness and her sense of style. But I also relate to her big eyes and dark locks. Therefore Aria and Ezra are my favorite couple!! Loved Ezra ever since I first met him in episode one! He's adorable, understand, and oh so cute!! LOL 

Teen Wolf, 
I first started seeing this cause they had some really cute guys! haha I thought it was gonna be a stupid show but it ended up being really really good!! I haven't started watching the second season though!! OMG But I will once I get a break from all my work and school, yuck! lol. Scott is obviously my fav but only because he's adorable funny! I have an ultimate crush on Derek!! Lol that bad boy persona is so hard to resist. 

Vampire Diaries,
Okay this is my number one show!! I've been seeing it since it's premier back in 2009 wow! It's been 3 years of loyalty through the dark, the evil and the kinda slow side of the story. I will forever love this show not only because Damon and Stefan are the most handsome men I've ever seen but their personalities and quirks make them real! I hate watching something and seeing right through and actor/actress. It's the most frustrating thing ever. BTW I am all for team Stefan and Elena!! Sorry Damon but they will forever belong together no matter what! I can't wait for it to start again in the fall! Ohhh the tension builds!

Gossip Girl, 
This show started airing back in 2007 when I was still a young girl who wasn't into all these boy crazy-dramatic teen shows. I saw bits and pieces of the show thanks to my obsessed sister and saw her reading the books. I was super curious and wanted to start reading the books. But because she didn't have the first novel I never got into it. I finally gave in last year and started watching the show from start to finish and I have never been the same. In the beginning I was all for Serena and Dan, and I thought Blair was meant to be with Nate. But as I continued to get to know these people I began to fall in love with Blair and her wickedness, her dark evil side. I loved the way Serena dresses though and eventually I loved the way Blair dressed too. Now in this final season that passed with all the twists and turns and disappointments I am so ready for the final season that I think will be the end of GG! Noooo!! It's terrible really I always looked forward to this amazing show! But in the end it better turn out the way everyone hopes. Blair with Chuck another sexy stylish man! He is the iconic playboy billionaire and use to be the selfish uncaring kind of guy. But with Blair's help he completly changed and now the two schemers are meant to be! Sure the books are totally diffrent and now I will probably never read them to not mess up my perfect image of GG. 

What are your favorite shows??

What Kind of people are Writers?

I found this super interesting!! For those of you who didn't know, I love to write stories. 

Common Characteristics of Natural Born, Freelance, or Career Writers

  • An “odd ball” childhood.
Writers tend to start off as peculiar kids. They never quite fit in with their classmates. Their abstract thinking begins early on, and it causes them to struggle to relate to other children and elementary interests. Future writers commonly start off as either lonesome or socially inept kids.
  • They were handed books as toys.
Naturally gifted writers are almost always reading enthusiasts. They have a further developed vocabulary and stronger syntax abilities because their scholastic experience goes beyond traditional curriculum. 
  • They believe in the “All or nothing” policy. 
Writers are often perfectionists that will edit until their eyes bleed or completely scratch an idea off the table. They tend to carry that trait into their other projects as well. The writer will either create something complete or nothing at all.
  • They take pride in their work.
Even if they need help, writers like doing their work 100% themselves without contribution. This is seen often in college, when the self-proclaimed writers don’t show up to office hours or ask for tutoring. Writers tend to treat even essays as a personal work of art. It’s their work, and it matters that it’s only theirs.
  • They are equally organized and disorganized.
A writer’s mind works in choreographed chaos. With too much chaos comes no productivity. With too much organization comes no passion. The writer has learned how to have the perfect combination of both.
  • They have both an ego and self-doubt.
-Enough ego to invest in one’s own thoughts, enough doubt to revise and rethink continuously. 
  • They enjoy simplicity.
Hot coffee, music, and a sunrise could make their morning flawless.
  • They are observant. 
Writers tend to learn about things from as many angles as they can. They’ll see the same sign for ten years and connect ten-thousand other separate things to the sign in that amount of time. They take in what they can and make a mental map of how things co-exist. 
  • They  recognize the importance of memories.
Writers learn how to utilize past moments as criteria for their work. A writer will not forget their first love, or heartache.

Okay, today is a lazy day because I need to finish a few things for school and I'm really behind! I hope you're inspired with this post! 

Life Of A Fashion Queen Series: My Grad Bash Planning

(This dates back to July 28,2012)

Okay guys, I'll treat this as my diary for now. 
You all know that I'm done with HS and I'm on my way to college very soon just in 5 weeks! Oh god so nervous but so excited! I really can't wait to get into class again and get out of my house. I know some days I will just miss being lazy but I'm growing up and need to get my responsibilities straight. But before all that happens and I become a busy college girl I'm throwing the biggest, baddest most epic party of 2012! (in my opinion and I believe we should always think highly of oursleves, no one else will!) But to create this epic party I'm gonna have to plan A LOT!! The party is in 4 weeks and I'm almost through with this week! PANIC! I'm getting the invitations printed by the end of this week, date, time and place is already set. I also have a hook up to print a few decorations I will need. More on that later. For now I wanted to talk about what I have been up to these past three/four days! 

I have been vigorously choosing music to play at the party, already have a DJ, but I need great music. Any one have ideas on what's the best "dance/pop" music? I'm having a bit of trouble just because a lot of the songs are mixed or house. Suggestions are welcome just leave it in the comment box please!

The next thing I have been up to, other than designing the invitations and the decorations, is the invite list. Recently it went from like 110 down to 85. Which is fine because I only want true friends in my party, no room for haters in this house!! But I still think it's too many people, I'm not about to get in to debt right before college! lol It's a little difficult to X out friends that I see often so it's on a hold list until I get an outside opinion. 

For the next few days I will be working with my brother-in-law who does printing work and he will be printing my invites! I'll have to give him the details and tell him how many I need by then. 
I will also have to order a few decorations this weekend just so they come on time and I'm prepared. I like to buy my decor ahead of time so the week of the party I'm not so stressed and I only have to get the food ect. 

For now I am swamped with planning! Hopefully next week I'm done with the invitations, the invite list, the music and food! All will be revealed next week if I'm done!

That 70s Show

Okay I had to blog about this 60's, 70's 80's party I went to last night! Me and my friend dressed up as hippies because that's the easiest last minute costume we could come up with! And on top of that I wanted to be some what fashionable! 
I decided to go with a long skirt and a floral cami and left my hair super curly with a headband. 
My makeup was really simple, keeping it in the natural side and nude lips.
I wore lots of rings and long necklaces.
I also chose to wear flats because I can't imagine hippies in heels.

Here are a few pictures! hope you guys are inspired and have fun!!

Not In High School Anymore...

By my obvious title I finally graduated HighSchool!! I'm not sure if I have mentioned this before but I'm about to let you know a little bit about myself.
Well first of all, I was homeschooled for the past four years, it sucked majorly after the second year because I was so bored and lazy! I wanted to go back to actual school but my anxiety got the best of me and I ended up just staying in homeschool. It was fine until graduation started and I had yet to finish! Now we're in July and I finally finished! Just in time for college that is!! lol! So there won't really be a wonderful summer break, which I was hoping for! BUT I will be having a spectacular grad bash, if I do say so myself! I've been planning it for over a year and it will probably happen in the next two to three weeks, before college classes start! 
I know many bloggers who start college and get so busy that their blogs become once a month updates, I swear to always post! Even if it is inspirations and music. I also know that no one really dresses up for college but hey!! we're Fashionistas here and you must always look the part! 
Expect A LOT more ootd's since I'll actually have some where to go. For now here's my wish list!

College Wish List For The Fashionista:

1. An Adorable Satchel to carry the laptop, notebooks, pens and books. 

2. Sandals, Toms, Oxfords

3. Chunky knit sweaters

Fun In The Sun

Hello lovlies!! Hope you're having a great summer! When I went to the beach this past week I trully enjoyed myself! Something that hasn't happened in a long time. Went to the beach everyday, had a wonderful breakfast, enjoyed time with my family and at night chilled! I've been super stressed out about school and life. I actually forgot what is was to not have a care in the world. 
Here I show you a little bit of my trip, hope you guys like the pictures! I also have to mentin that the first picture is my favorite just cause my hair looks so awesome!! I actually dyed it a bit more so now the bangs and the rest of my hair is much lighter, but I have to dye it again cause I want the bangs and the tips to be blonde! Will show pictures when that happens!
