Fall For these Shoes

        We have been getting tons of requests here at Fashion and Frosting, and trust us, we are getting to them a quickly as possible. Today’s request however, comes from Ali. So, today we will be talking about cute, casual, fall shoes, that won’t break the bank AND are break from UGGS.

When I first saw these, I thought “They’re just a knock off of Vans” but then I saw the inside… THEY ARE FURRY! That’s right! They keep you warm and look like vans. Want them? Click here.

I wear these all of the time in the winter. They kind of replace my boat shoes. They are warm, comfortable, and if you can’t afford the “on brand” these are perfect! (and between you and me, I think they are cuter anyway!) Click here.

Converse. One of my fall staple pieces. I wear my red ones with everything! I have the real ones but you can find knock off ones at places like payless or famous footwear. Delias also sells them. Find these here.

What is one of my favorite things about fall? Boots! They can be formal or super casual. I love these over skinny jeans and a flowy top! Get them here!

Match this flirty pair of flats with a sweet top and ripped jeans for a fun flirty look. Get ‘em here.

Hope this gives you some inspiration for your school or casual weekend outfits! And remember, just because its school doesn’t mean you can’t take advantage of my favorite fashion season, fall! Just keep it classy and casual! Love this post? Tell us! Have a great idea? Have another type of shoe you love for fall? Have good ideas? We absolutely LOVE to hear from you! Comment or email us!

A Little Mishap

Hi everyone! Today I have a little story for you...

     I don't know if you remember, but Emma did a post where she mentioned the Tresemme Dry Shampoo. Well, I recently decided that I should try it. So, I went to Target.
    When I was there, I saw the dry shampoo, but didn't know which one I should get. I just chose one that said it was for normal hair. 
     The next day, before school, I decided to try it out. I read the directions; three simple steps. Seemed easy enough. So, I sprayed it in my hair, waited two minutes and then I assumed it was done.
     I then tried to brush out my hair, like the bottle said. I could hardly get the comb through my hair! I don't even know what happened! I went to school and told Emma and she just laughed. I apparently got the wrong kind. I should've gotten the foam kind. I got the spray kind. I then had this confirmed by another friend. So, I hope this little story helps you in the future.
    Moral of the story: FOAM NOT SPRAY, when it comes to dry shampoo. Comment below with your own stories!

Rule The Curl

You wake up and look in the mirror to find your hair sticking up in all direction, your curls going everywhere and there’s a poof. Yeah, most of us have at least some degree of this. We can’t all have pin straight hair, and honestly that would get quite boring! So, if you have curly hair, hold on because your time is coming! Curls and wavey hair is back in! Yay! However, for those of you with straight flat hair, don’t worry. There are so many ways to get curls into your hair! Just wait, a post on that is on the way!

Follow these tips and tricks to make your mane, a little more manageable.
DO NOT TOWL DRY! I know, I’m guilt of doing the turban twist after I get out of the shower too. However, the towel makes your hair brake and therefore gets frizzier and more fly aways. Go for drying your hair with an old t-shirt instead!
Do not brush your hair when wet. Instead gently go through it with a wide tooth comb. Again, les fly aways and frizz! Also, if you must pull hair back, don’t tie hair back while it’s still wet or use rubber bands, which can snag or pull hair
Invest in a good curl product. There are so many out there to try. I can’t really recommend any to you because what works in my hair, might not work in yours. So go out there and get experimenting! Let us know what you find and what you like! You might see it in another post!
Use a good conditioner and shampoo. Sounds simple right? But, some stylists suggest not even using shampoo when you wash your hair! If you can’t bear breaking up with your shampoo, then pick a shampoo that is made specifically for curly hair. Bumble and Bumble and Rusk are two great brands made for curly hair. However, if you are on a budget, try L’OrĂ©al or John Frieda. Even better: Avocado is great for conditioning hair. Mix it with a spoonful of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and let it sit for a half an hour.
Get regular trims. Curly hair has low porosity, which means that it doesn’t absorb as much water, and it's dryer. That means, your hair will get more split ends and breakage. So make sure you get a trim every 6 to 8 weeks. Keeping your hair healthy will avoid any worse splitting!

Hope this gives you a little help! More hair tips and tutorials on the way! Let us know what you think!

Fall is Here

Now that summer is over, we're all left with summer clothes that are just sitting there. Well don't worry! A lot of your summer pieces can be used for fall too!

Tanks Galore: Tank tops are great for layering. I live in sweaters during the winter, so its nice to be able to pair tanks underneath. They also look good under light jackets.

Summer Dresses: Sun dresses are still great in the fall. Depending on how cold it is, wear it with a light cardi and boots, or wear it with tights, cute flats, and a jacket.

Jewelry: Fun summer pieces are great when paired with dark fall clothes. Brighten up a gray sweater with pink earrings or bracelets!

That's all for today, comment or send us an email!

So you are probably asking yourself "Why hasn't Emma posted anything in forever?" Well, the answer is simple: busy. So I'm very sorry but today I have more important things to talk about.... that's right! Hair tools!
Recently, I was watching a contest by Kandee Johnson. Its about the new straighteners and blow driers from sultra. I am IN LOVE with these two tools! The new "Seductress" is the new best ever straightener. I will give you the links to the website and a link to Kandee's video at the end, but here are the basics. This think goes from 0-395 degrees (Fahrenheit) in 4 seconds! But wait! There's more! It has 3 temperature settings, a rotatable 9 foot long cord, and the newest technology in hot plates! In love yet? You will be! Click here to go to the site and here to go to Kandee's video.
They also have the new blow drier. It has all of this cool stuff, but you can see it all for yourself here.

Do you have either of these? Let us know!
