One thing during Christmas that seemed like it was gonna be a one season fad, but is sticking around is Ugly Christmas Sweaters. I don’t know how this is still trending because IMO I’d rather wear a cute dress, but I guess the sweater hides the cookies?
The most annoying thing is poring your drink and you end up getting distracted, before you know it you’re out that cheap bottle of wine you picked up. With this sweater you will always know were your bottle is.
ShaniBlumenfeld is an online clothing company. In my opinion most of the clothing you get from retail stores is all the same because they’re attempting to cover all the trends. What I love about their clothing is how unique it is,so you’ll show up wearing what no one else is.
I wanted to start with this one because it caught my eye. This skirt is something that would be worn out or during the day. I love the zipper and then the slit that is made when the zipper meets the upper thigh.
This is one thing that is missing from my wardrobe. What I like is it’s not formfitting, but you can wear a belt with it. Wearing a belt creates shape for your body. Or you could wear it without, which is my favorite way to wear a shirtdress.
I honestly don’t believe that anyone is really “bad” at makeup. I also don’t need that anyone “needs” makeup. What I do believe is that you need to have the right philosophy to avoid having bad makeup. Whenever I see someone who can’t do makeup, I realize that they generally follow certain beliefs that make makeup useless.
You can’t really hide anything with makeup. I always see people boast that makeup is so powerful that it can disguise everything on your face but that’s usually just for pictures and bathroom mirrors. In real life, light will fall on your face and reveal that unsightly bump you’re trying to hide. This is not to say that your scars and facial flaws cannot be alleviated with the help of a good foundation or concealer, but nothing is actually hidden.
Once makeup becomes about hiding the parts of your face that you do not like, you become addicted to piling it on and on especially on your worst days. This just leads to a masked, cake-face. Try to think of seeking instead of hiding. You want to lead people’s eyes to the best parts of your face (and I know there are many).
Makeup is really like a neon arrow saying “hey look here!” rather than a bandaid covering up a blemish. Lip colors that suit you, highlighter and eyeliner are used to bring eyes to the parts of your face that you favor. Applying makeup with this mindset always makes you happier in the morning, too, so you’re focusing on your good parts and not the things you resent about your (probably perfect) face.
#2: Some People Need Makeup
I really hate this one. There are always people who are going to hate others for wearing makeup and they always claim that some people are just plain ugly without makeup. Refer to Myth #1. Without makeup, no one is going to suddenly have a haggard face. Most people just look tired or younger without makeup. I’ve never seen anyone that’s transformed into another person.
Even with contour, the face you were given at birth is pretty much the face that you will reveal to the world every day. You only know yourself through pictures and the bathroom mirror in certain lighting, so maybe you are actually shocked when you take of your Kardashian contour – but they human eye is often more clever. No one is going to think you are hideous without makeup. They might ask if you’re sleepier, but sleepy is cute. Have you ever seen a sleeping puppy or kitten? Totally adorbs! Don’t worry about it.
Let’s be honest. Almost everyone is concerned to a degree about thier appearance. It is not really wise to say that just because someone is intervening with what nature gave them is actually more concerned or vain. I think most people who wear makeup actually find application fun and colors interesting.
It’s horrible to assume that just because someone wears a crop top it means that they think they have the worst body ever and they are self-conscious, right? It’s like that with makeup. Just because someone wears makeup to show off the parts of their face they like or to experiment it doesn’t mean they are robots that are obsessed with physical appearance. It just means that they, um, like makeup. That’s all!
In my opinion, people are afraid to go against the norm and not wear Ray Ban. Next time you’re at TJ Maxx, get some sunglasses that are not aviator and wear them the next time you go out. After you’ve done this, make a comment in the section below and tell me if you got any compliments.
People this year have gone from maxi skirts to button up jean skirts and that’s where it ends until summer. A flounce skirt is a midi skirt that is very flowy. It’s great if you want to wear a cute pair of ankle boots.
Last year was prime for Halloween. It was on a Saturday which made for the perfect opportunity to celebrate halloween for three nights, but this year it’s on a Monday, which isn’t horrible, but not ideal. Here are some cute costumes for whatever style you’re trying to go for.
These costumes I found on Studio DIY Instagram and once I saw her feed, I followed immediately. What I liked about most of the costumes was that they were easy to put together, because no one wants to spend a Saturday putting together a custom or spend a bunch of money.
I love this one because it brings me back to middle school when people would use the phrase “take a chill pill”. If I were wearing this costume it would be something I would wear the day of Halloween to work, because it’s a very classy and professional outfit, with also being a little halloweeny. If your office dresses up for Halloween this is a great choice.
2. Burn book
Mean girls is a very classic Halloween costume, what I like about this one the most is how comfortable it looks. It’s perfect for a Halloween party because you can simply just match it with a pair of sneakers.
3. Milk and Cookies
What I love about this one is I’ve never seen it before, and nothing is a better combo than milk and cookies. It is also a pretty easy costume to achieve; the biggest struggle would be you’re bae having white jeans.
4. Snapchat dog filter
I wanted to use this as my heading because I guess everyone thinks that the dog filter is the worst, but I had no idea there was this giant problem with it. You don’t just have to stick with the dog filter, you can choose your favorite. They are actually a great last minute idea because they usually just require a certain way of doing your makeup and a prop or two.
I’ve wrote in a previous post about how much I’m loving the cactus trend. The thing I love most about it is all the cute kinda sarcastic comments that you can put together when relating to a cactus.
6. Yeezy Season 2
For this costume all you have to do is wear some clothing items that are extremely ripped. This is how I’d do this outfit;
Step 1- Buy a nude bodysuit on Amazon. Amazon is great for Halloween costume pieces that you can’t easily find in store or would be way more expensive in stores.
Step 2 – The next part of your outfit is a long coat. For this, ask your dad or brothers to borrow a coat for the night. Just remember to give it back, and not leave it behind.
Step 3- Go to your local Goodwill and try to get some lace up boots.
Step 4- Get whatever clothing you have that is nude and put it on. The best thing about this part is the more crazy and weird you layer your clothing, the better your costume will look.
Step 5 – Take your most “Ratchet” clothing and distress it even more.
Step 6 – When you’re walking around look emotionless.
Step 7 – Head to your local Marshals and put a giant price tag on your clothing.
7. Stranger things
Sadly I have not seen this, I’m waiting until Christmas break because I have no idea how scary it is and I need all the sleep I can get. With this being a scary show it’s great to show some traditional Halloween spirit.
8. Harley Quinn from “Suicide Squad”
This costume was popping up even before Halloween. The two most important things about this costume is your makeup and your outfit. For your makeup, I’d go on YouTube and weeks before Halloween start practicing. For your outfit, before buying something cheap online, go to your local Goodwill and see if there’s anything there you could use.
9. Pokemon Go
This was a giant obsession over the summer. What I think would be a great idea for this is to make this a giant group costume with people dressed up as Pokemon and others dressed up as Pokemon catchers.
10. Beyonce Lemonade
Beyonce made a lot of news this year for her song “Lemonade”, which I think was honestly a great marketing idea. Beyonce and Jay Z are fine, but you can totally play out Beyonce’s alter ego this Halloween.
11. Donald Vs. Hillary
This is just my thought, but this would be a hilarious couples costume. With the election coming up and especially where I live, I’m going to be seeing a lot of Stumps and Bernies.
Over the past couple weeks I have binged watched Friends, and one of my favorite characters in Friends is Phoebe. One of my favorite lines on the episode was “Do you think they will have yesterday’s post?”; Monica obviously confused asked why, and Phoebe responded with, “To see if my horoscope yesterday was true”. Who knows if horoscopes are real and if people can actually identify to one, but I think they’re pretty entertaining.
You never like to be in one place for a while, you’re going to wear an outfit that can be worn to a dinner or a night club. You love trying new things and this weekend is no different, and your outfit will be easy convertible for whatever you end up doing.
You love staying in, there’s nothing better than a pint of Ben and Jerry’s and some Netflix. Your outfit is going to be cozy and great for those perfect nights in with your friends.
As a Leo, you despise being ignored and you make your outfit so amazing that it is impossible not to talk to you. You love bright colors that will catch people’s attention and shiny shoes that will pick up everyone’s eyesight.
You’re the brave and tough one of your friend group. You love wearing the color black and making it look as badass as anyone has ever before. You were the one who made space buns popular even before Miley Cyrus.
You’re the one who always has a humorous comment to everything, as Friends fans would say – you’re the Chandler of the group. Your style is one of my favorites, it’s a classic hipster as I like to call it. What I mean by this is you mix classic items like this white shirt with this sweet floppy hat.

Personally, I would love to get a tattoo; but like most people my age, I have no idea what my future job will be and it would be horrible to not get my dream job because of a tattoo.

//platform.instagram.com/en_US/embeds.jsMost of the tattoos are five dollars for two tattoos, which does seem like a lot, but when you put it in a good spot it can last more than a week. I put my blue flowered tattoo on my upper arm and it looked great until I accidentally put some lotion on it.

//platform.instagram.com/en_US/embeds.jsI think this is a great idea if you’re having a large event like a birthday party or especially a wedding. It’s a great way to add an activity for your guests and Tattly is happy to work to make your design your own.

There are three day trips on the Cape that are a must: the Vineyard, Nantucket, and Provincetown. There’s something about visiting these places. It seems like time goes by faster than ever, and you don’t want to miss out on anything. Here’s some how to’s and tips to make the best of Martha’s Vineyard.
One of the downsides is finding a place to park your car. Parking in Woods Hole is possibly harder than parking in most cities. There’s rarely street parking, and all the lots are sticker parking. A tip for free parking all day: park at one of the bike path lots. The bike path goes right to the steamship and the ticket to bring your bike over is very low.
Woods Hole Market is one of the best parts of Woods Hole. They have everything you could possibly need, including a great roof deck. It is a great place to grab a drink — you’ll need it for your bike ride.
Once you get off the steamship, go left and after a short bike ride on the sidewalk, you’ll find the bike path. This path will take you straight to Edgartown. This bike path is perfect because it is long, but there are plenty of places to stop and
I’m not a bookstore person (I love the books I get for a penny on Amazon), but whenever I go to the vineyard, visiting this bookstore is a must. There’s something about the atmosphere of the book store I just love.
This is one of the guilty pleasures of the vineyard. It’s always been said that there is no place to get cute clothing on The Cape, and in some cases that’s true. It’s taken me 20 years to know what the best places on Falmouth are for everything. This place is a little pricey, but it’s worth it in the end.
There’s one thing I’ve always wanted to do, but like most kids my age who are not privileged enough with a sweet trust fund, we should probably spend our money on food and rent before going to the spa. ToGoSpa offers these sweet and inexpensive eye treatments to bring the spa to the comfort of your own living room.
The best and easiest way to relax is to cut off any technology. It’s very under thought, but technology can be very stressful – especially today. When you start your at home spa day, turn your phone off and find that book you’ve been wanting to read.
This will become your spa bae. DIY beauty treatments do work, but they can sometimes be a mess. These are classic and simple. They also help you feel more relaxed because they also act as a cold compress.
