Outfit Inspiration

I found this picture while bumming around online one night and decided to recreate it as my outfit today.




Yes, I am one of those leopard print fanatics.  As strange as it may sound, I consider leopard print to be sort of a 'neutral'.  It really goes with almost EVERYTHING...or at least I wear it that way, haha.  My take on it for this lovely Sunday (please excuse the poor photo quality, as I use my iphone to take photos, haha):






Not to shabby, eh?  The leopard print blouse I purchased for $3 at Goodwill, the white tank is an $8 ribbed tank from Old Navy, black shorts $25 from Target, bracelets were all off of a clearance at Target for around $10, and the red bow ring I purchased at a street festival in Chicago years ago.

Of course, you can never go wrong when you sport the red lipstick + leopard print combo:



Are you a leopard print fan?  What is your favorite way to wear it?  Happy Sunday to all!

Makeup for the night..

Going out for some fun with friends to celebrate my graduation from cosmetology school :)  Oh..and yes....I am one of those Hello Kitty fanatics.  





New hair

I am absolutely OBSESSED with the ombre/dip dyed color look.  I don't care if it is played out or not, I love it.  I went into the cosmetology school I just graduated from (two weeks ago, yayy me! :) and had a friend of mine that is still a student do the look on me.  My natural hair color is just plain, boring, black.....so, I knew beforehand it wasn't going to lift to an extremely blonde color but I was SO pleased with the end result!  The ombre/two toned color is awesome for people that don't want to be in the salon getting color touch ups all the time...it is only done on the ends so you don't have to deal with all that pesky outgrowth you get with normal highlights.  Love it.

New Years Eve 2011

I spent New Years Eve working at a bar in Chicago with two of my friends.  Chicago is hands down my FAVORITE place to be, and I want to move there once it gets warmer out.  Anyhow, instead of my usual partying shenanigans, I figured I would take the chance to make some money and have some fun...the bar/restaurant was amazing....really a cool vintage vibe with amazing chandeliers and big, black and white portraits of retro glamour girls, etc.  Very nice. 

My makeup before I added the lipstick......


...annnnd after, with my lovely friend Chelsea. 



A bold lip is one of my favorite makeup looks, especially a nice red one.  It always makes me laugh when someone tells me "I just love that you wear that red lipstick, I NEVER could!"  I think anyone can pull it off, it's just about finding the right red for you.  You'd be surprised how good you feel with a nice red lipstick on...try it sometime, thank me later.  Anyhow, here's to 2012, cheers :)

Bear with me here.

First post ever!  I have always wanted to start a blog, just to share my love for all things that interest me in life.....I love absolutely everything about the beauty industry (I am a recent cosmetology grad) and have gotten so much inspiration through other beauty blogs.  I also LOVE any and all street style blogs...I love seeing other peoples funky styles, it is so inspiring.  Anyhow...I will get the hang of this thing eventually :)
