Makeup Trends

Makeup trends can get a little crazy sometimes, but try it out and see if it is for you.  You may end up liking it more than you think.

  • Bold Brows: When filling in your brows make sure to follow your natural shape to not go overboard.  Start off with feathering strokes to fill in than brush them.  Also, at your brow bone finish look off with a highlighter.
  • Contouring: For this you can either use a cream or powder for the bronzer, blush, and highlighter.  First put the bronzer under the cheekbones, temples, jawline, and now blend.  For blush put onto the apple of your cheeks.  The highlighter goes on top of the cheekbones and the bridge of your nose.
  • Full lips: Over lining your lips is big right now, but learn to do it the right way.  Find a lip liner close to your natural lip color.  Make sure you do not over line all over, just places where you need it.  Adding a lip gloss on top of the liner.  This will make the lips look fuller and a lot more natural.

Smoothies

Here are a few smoothies.  I love to have them for breakfast or a snack.  You can always change the smoothie by adding more or less of some ingredient.

  1.  5 ice cubes, small handful of blueberries, 2 tablespoons of honey, half of fresh lemon juice, and 5 large strawberries. Blend!
  2.  1 cup of plain yogurt, 1 banana, 3 ice cubes, 1/2 cup orange juice, 6 strawberries. Blend!
  3.  1 banana, 2 tablespoons of peanut butter, 1 cup milk or almond milk, 3 ice cubes, and you could add protein powder if you would like. Blend!
  4.  1/2 peach, 1 banana, 5 strawberries, and 1/2 cup of milk

Fall

Fall

Guess what?  Yesterday was the first day of Fall!  It is time for boots, sweaters, hot drinks, leaves falling, and more.  What more could you ask for?  It is a beautiful time of the year in general.  Plus, not to mention lipstick colors get so much darker; Fall makeup is always my favorite.  Bath & Body Works come out with their Fall scents and the candles are to die for!  For example, the scent Marshmallow Fireside, Leaves, and Pumpkin Apple are amazing.  I am going to have to go to the store to get some and make my room smell perfect.  Are you excited for Fall?

Fashion Buying Tips

916c68d5ad82a95931532ad99ed5cac1

When buying new clothes, sometimes it can be a challenge from finding nothing you like to nothing has your size or not having enough money.  So here are some tips:

  • If you do not love something from the moment you see it than do not buy it
  • Go shopping when sales are going on; you get more for your money
  • If there is something expensive you want than save up
  • If you can not see yourself wearing it than do not buy it….no reason to waste money
  • You do not have to follow what everyone else is wearing. It is fashion so express yourself and enjoy what you have on
  • Always have a budget when going shopping.  Otherwise, you could end up buying and spending a lot more
  • If you are unsure about something you like, go shopping with someone to get their opinion on the item
  • Have a variety of clothing in your closet, from causal to dressier items.  Never know when you may need it

Tips For Life

  • Get Out Of Your Comfort Zone: Once you do that, you will start to learn and experience more.  Why stay in the box your entire life when the world has so much to offer.  Go out and try new things!
  • Stop Judging Everyone: Everyone judges way too fast about someone and it is not fair.  They might hear one thing about a person, but it could not even be true.  Try to get to know a person before judging so much.  You will not like everyone in the world, but keep that to yourself and move on.
  • Don’t Regret Things: Never regret things in your life.  Your past has made you the person you are today.  At one point in your life those are things you wanted.  It is useless to regret anything, because you can not change what has already happened.
  • Help People Out: No matter who you are, you will have some type of struggle in life.  Everyone deals with something so never think someone has a perfect life.  Any chance you get help someone out.  It could simply be donating to charity, advice, being there for someone, or making someone smile.
  • Put Your Mind To It: You can do anything you wish.  If your goal is to become famous or have gpa of 4.0 or live in a big house one day or whatever it may be, do it.  You will have to put work and time into it, but you can get there.  Also don’t be jealous, because someone has what you want.  We are all humans and you can have it too; just put your mind to it.
  • Stay Positive: Always focus on positive things in your life, no matter how many negatives you have.  Remember time heals everything, be patient.  Plus, Life changes constantly if you think about it.  Staying positive will help you more than you realize and get through bad days.

About Me

photo

I am a homeschooled high school student in sunny California.  I am currently a junior, but trying to graduate this school year in 2016.  It is not as easy as you may think it is.  A lot of hard work is being put into doing this by taking a variety of classes.  In the end, I feel this will all be worth it.  As plans for college I am hoping to go out of state to Wisconsin or southern California.  Besides school I love shopping, drawing, animals, helping people out, and more.  For this blog there will be a range of topics I will talk about on here. For example, there will be advice, beauty, fashion, my thoughts on certain things, and a lot more.  If anyone needs advice or wants a topic for me to write about….email me at lammlife@yahoo.com
