Back Again/Disney Bound

        Hi everyone! I know it's been awhile since I last posted and I'm sorry. Emma and I have been really busy and the blog just didn't fit into our schedule. But, we're changing that! Soon we'll be having a Fashion and Frosting new makeover. Anyway, back to the point.
       Emma and I have recently come across this website called Pinterest (a.k.a. my newest obsession) and I saw something interesting on it. This girl from Polyvore (Emma has mentioned this before; another fun website) takes Disney characters and creates everyday outfits that imitate the certain character. Above I put Mr. Smee from Peter Pan (Captain Hook's assistant). Here are a few of my favorite:

Thick to Thin

     Calling all of you that have thick hair! Whether your hair has a courser texture, or you just have a lot of it, I’m giving you tips straight from the stylist themselves!

This may sound a little freaky, but trust me, it’s not. For those of you that aren’t really worried about putting your hair up in a ponytail, this may be the trick for you.  Basically, your stylist will use thinning shears. They move them down your hair which cuts some of the stands. This leaves you hair thinner and less poofy.

This is what I got recently. Talk to your stylist about how thick your hair is and your options. Ask them what they think about layer. Layers reduce well, layers. It’s a great option for those who like to put their hair in a ponytail because it all still fits and you don’t have little flyaways everywhere.
There is a recently new product line called “Biomega”. I just purchased their moister shampoo and conditioner. I haven’t started to use it yet, but I will let you know what I think. Before, I was using Tresemme. If anything, I think this was making my hair moor poofy in the morning. Look around. Ask your friends what they use. Experiment. Find a product that works for you! 

Keep in mind that this isn’t an exact science. The best thing you can do is talk to your stylist. Chances are, they will have a solution. Also, let me know if you have any tips or tricks!

Horizontal Stripes and Bold Prints

While most of you would cringe at the word, horizontal stripes are all over and I love them! What else am I obsessed with? Bold prints! The thing about stripes and prints is, you can wear them on a dress, sweater, headband, and my favorite: a t-shirt! What is even better, if you wear them right, they can actually be great for illusions, bigger on the top, smaller on the bottom, and everything in between. But, how do you rock these looks without going over the top or even worse… a little wider?

 First, TRY IT ON! This happens to be my least favorite thing about shopping but it needs to be done. Why buy a shirt that is just going to end up making you look binger then you are?

Opt for wider stripes, rather than skinny ones when it comes to dresses and shirts. Same goes for bold prints.

If you are wearing a “loud” shirt, go for jewelry and accessories that accent, not distract.

Here are some of my favorite stripes and prints! 

I actually recently purchased this item from American Eagle. Its a crop top so it doesn't make you look wider on the bottom! Bonus for the fright colors! 

This top is from Francesca's. I love the wide stripes and bold color. 

This top from forever 21 seems a tad summery, but the dark colors and the contrast make it more winter. Not to mention it has a great bold print! Wear with bangles and jeans!

Of corse I could add pictures of stripes and prints all day, but you won't really know what looks good on your body until you try it! So get out there and rock the horizontal stripes and bold prints! Leave a comment with what you think about the stripes! We love hearing from you! 

p.s. to all of you who were checking the blog everyday, waiting, we apologize! Thank you for your loyalty and wonderful comments! We really do read every one and love hearing from you!
