Although I love Beauty and The Beast’s story I’ve always been more intrigued by the Enchanted Rose. It symbolizes the delicacy and slow bloom of love, yet is powerful enough to transform anyone. Today’s makeup look is inspired by Belle and the Enchanted Rose. I always thought Belle had a very rose-bud-esque look with her earthy eyes, flushed cheeks, beautiful skin and mauve pink lips. The whole idea for this look came together quite some time ago when the Lancôme La Rôse à Poudrer Highlighter released in February. Just like the Enchanted Rose I immediately imagined this highlighter belonging under a glass bell!
Once I decided on the Enchanted Rose theme I started thinking about other rose inspired makeup that could be incorporated into this look.Read More
I have a vision in my mind of what the perfect party hat looks like but have never found one in real life! My perfect party hat has sequins and tinsel galore and sits, perched on my head, at the perfect jaunty angle without budging! Watch the tutorial below and find out how I created my dream party hat and how you can DIY your own!
I finally did it! My first DIY video blog and guest post for another blogger at the same time! Whew! A big thank you to the beautiful and stylish Hunter Schleicher for going on this journey with me and publishing my work on her insanely chic blog!
Recently I learned how to make woven, chevron pattern ‘friendship’ bracelets using embroidery floss! I used this video tutorial for step by step instructions for the weaving process — it’s the easiest-to-understand DIY I’ve encountered!
To make a wider bracelet simply use more strands during the weaving process.
To add the studs shown in my photos all you need is a few of whatever style studs you like (available at Wal-Mart, Hobby Lobby or Michael’s) and a pair of small pliers. Position the stud as desired then punch the tabs of each stud into your bracelet. Use the pliers to turn each tab under to secure the stud. I think I like the square studs the best! Which are your favorite?
