2016 Top Wedding Fashion Trends

Planning and organizing your wedding day can be somewhat stressful, but picking out your wedding dress can make all the worries go away because it’s one of the most enjoyable tasks you’ll have to do. Finding your perfect wedding gown requires some patience, but as long as you feel confident with your own body shape, you’ll definitely find something that will make you look stunning. Wedding trends are always changing and the year 2016 has brought some of the more interesting variations of the traditional wedding dress. Take a look and you just might find your perfect style among the following trends.
Go pastel
White and ivory will always be timeless when it comes to wedding dresses. But for those who would like to spice their look up and refine their appearance even more, pale pastel colours like pink and blue are very popular this year. By going with the palest shade of the mentioned pastel colors, the hue can make your bridal look even more special and dazzling.
Crop tops rule
It seems that the trend of crop tops is here to stay because it found its way to the wedding dresses as well. This trend is both casual and chic, and with just a bit of skin showing, it can make a world of difference regarding the whole bridal look. Romantic lace or sweetheart necklines look great on a crop top and when chosen right, this kind of dress - with separated top and skirt - can elongate your figure.
The wonder of sleeves
Sleeveless wedding gowns with straps or bodices are still very popular but this year’s trend of long sleeves got equal attention. Plain, straight-cut sleeves look very elegant while see-through ones that are embellished with lace details can add an additional touch of romance to your look. Moreover, wide sleeves can look great with a specific theme, be it mythology or fairy tale.
Make room for feathers
Again, artificial flower details can be considered a timeless trend when it comes to wedding gowns, but this year there has been a burst of feathery details that threaten to take the flower's spotlight, detail-wise. Feather-embellished wedding gowns look both very elegant and edgy, so, in that respect, they might be a perfect choice for you.
Suit up
This year has welcomed classy two-piece bridal suits to the mainstream aisles of wedding stores as well. The variety of cuts and luxurious materials can easily put bridal pants and tops on the same level as a traditional wedding dress. These are perfect for a more casual wedding, for a bride who values practicality, freedom of movement and fashionable classy style above all else.
Pop of colour
When pop of colour is mentioned for a wedding day, most brides-to-be will think about colourful flower patterns or feather details, but this year, wedding shoes in striking bold colours were very trendy. Of course, bridal shoes can be an effective accessory on its own regardless of their colour, but the trend that incorporates vivid brights to decorate the bride’s feet has blown up instantly.
Capes and veils
There was a time when veils lost their popularity even though they’re a traditional part of a wedding celebration. As a complete opposite, 2016 has not only brought the veils back, but flowy and lace capes as well. These add a touch of romantic look to any dress style and perfectly match a fairy tale wedding theme.
Make sure you enjoy your wedding prep as much as possible. Choosing your wedding gown and thinking up your whole look for the wedding are definitely the most amusing parts of pre-wedding chaos, so take this chance to really go all out and take a breather from some other, more tedious tasks.

If you've been following me since I started blogging March of this year then, you know that my favorite season is Autumn. I look forward to this season all year round. The weather is much cooler and there's an over abundance of pumpkin spice everywhere you go. 

I just can't wait for Summer to end! I don't like feeling like I have to shower five times a day. I don't like sweating my hair out! I don't like runny makeup! I can't take it! I can't wait to look cute all day and not wonder if I am staring at the same person who left the house in the morning. Come on! You know you hate when you look cute when you leave home and then towards the evening you're like what the heck happened to my hair.

One of my many reasons I love this season is FASHION. I like to believe that this is the time we get to see who really has style. You pretty much have to put together well thought out looks. I love layering! I love mixed prints and patterns! I love the transition from light colors to cool/warm colors.  I LOVE Autumn! I get to wear knit scarves, boots, chunky sweaters, denim and moto jackets. I have been digging the minimalist style lately. I am sort of obsessed. It's true when they say less is more! I will be putting together a capsule wardrobe this year.  I can't wait to share some of the looks I come up with. 

Are you excited for Autumn? Please tell me I am not the only one!

DIY: Makeup Brush Holder

Sunday, September 04, 2016

Hey guys! I have a new DIY for you! It's super easy! 
This week I stopped by Ikea. I went to look for some things to use around the house but I picked up some other items that I found useful. You know how us women are! 
I saw this glass vase & these little crushed particles that look like real broken glass. I thought it would perfect to use to make a brush holder.


Kulort Decorative Crushed Glass $2.99
Rektangel Vase $3.99


Pour the crushed glass into the vase


Place your makeup brushes inside & there you have it! 

 Simple & Cost effective :P
If you would like to purchase these items to make your own, please see the links below.





Irresistible Me: Diamond Hair Styler

Sunday, August 28, 2016



I have partnered with Irresistible Me to share a honest review for this fabulous Diamond flat iron. Irresistible Me is a hair company based in the Fashion District of New York. This company specializes in great quality extensions at affordable prices. Irresistible Me sells 100% natural remy hair extensions, hair tools and hair accessories. 

Review
 I was so excited when I received my package from Blair at Irresistible Me. First, let me just say, I was in awe when I opened the box. The packaging is phenomenal. I mean, I do not know one company that packages their hair tools like this. This company scored major cool points just off of the packaging. Presentation is everything to me! I really like the sliver metallic embossed logo. The box has a magnetic flap to open and close the box. The flat iron's features and parts are located on the inside at the top of the box. Also, If you look underneath the flap you'll find the company's website in white. 

I honestly love this Diamond Hair Styler. First, can we get into the design?!  I am a sucker for innovation. Look at all the cool buttons and indicators. 




I have used this flat iron a couple times in two weeks.  My hair looks and feels amazing! I do not like flat irons that make my hair look like it has been fried hard. Thank God this isn't one of them. This flat iron has ceramic plates that are made out of crushed diamonds particles and tourmaline. With those combined, the plates were designed to protect your hair and not strip your hair of its natural oils.
Other great things I love about the flat iron is it does not take long to heat up. The Diamond hair styler heats up within 15 seconds and shuts off after 30 minutes. This ceramic flat iron also has a swivel cord. Don't you hate having to straighten out the cord when you're straighten your hair? Your problem is solved! This flat iron features a 360 degree mobile cord that follows your every move. Cool right?!  
I would definitely recommend this product to my friends and family. You won't be disappointed in the results! If you are interested, check out their website below! If you sign up you'll receive a 30% off back to school discount.

Let's Talk

Wednesday, August 24, 2016
I am really focused on my five year plan. By the time I reach thirty, I seek to accomplish so much, god willing. I won't really share my plans because I would prefer to work in silence and watch things manifest. I will say that I want to work for myself by that time. You ever heard the saying "ain't nothing to it but to do it". It is my motto for now. I have so many ideas, I just need to execute them. 

It is such a great feeling to finally BELIEVE in myself and my creative abilities. For me, it's about doing what I put my mind to without worrying so much. When you are a person like me, who struggles with anxiety. It is kind of hard to kick "worrying". I am working on it. I am human. This road is not easy especially with the cards I've been dealt. I am keeping my head up and my eyes on the prize.

After all, the woman I want to become does not back down :D

+
My pledge to myself
 I will not worry about being perfect 
 I will not be afraid to fail
I will put my best foot forward in all that I do
I will not stop believing in myself


What's on your mind today? Have you thought about your five year plan? What is your pledge to yourself ?
