Friday Favorites: Weekly Beauty And Fashion Finds

Goodbye September. Hello October

Fall is upon us and we have made it to yet another week of my weekly favorites. It's crazy how quick this week flew. It seems like just yesterday I was sharing my favorites with you all [see here]. This week was a rather chilled week, so I don't have too many favorites.
The few favorites that I do have this week are definitely worth the recognition. I love getting my hands on products that I feature and this week, that is exactly what I had the pleasure of doing. To find out what featured product I finally have in my possession, keep scrolling for my Friday faves.

Faux Suede Chelsea Boots

As we all know, suede is definitely in this season. I saw these babies and immediately fell in love. I'm not sure if it was the suede or the tan that drew me in, but I have absolutely no complaints. They are super comfortable [although they sometimes rub the back of my ankle]. They were affordable and they look amazing with pretty much anything.

Zara Femme Perfume

If you've been following my beauty faves for some time now than you know how madly in love I happen to be with Zara fragrances. I had recently run out of all of my favorites and was in need of something new and fresh. I tested out this scent and immediately fell in love. This scent is gentle with soft notes and perfect for any occasion.

Coconut Oil and Grapeseed Oil

While showing my hair some much needed tender loving care, I decide to do an oil treatment before going about my regular routine. I am a huge fan of coconut oil, but wasn't too familiar with grapeseed oil. I decided to combine the two and let them sit on my hair for a couple minutes. Let's just say after washing my hair, my hair was softer than it has ever been and let's not forget to mention how amazing it smelled.

Simple Micellar Water

If you saw my card on micellar water earlier this week [see here] than you know just how amazing it claims to be. I couldn't pass up the opportunity of finding out just how great it was for myself, so I gave in. Although I purchased the drugstore brand, after doing my research I learned that the Simple brand was just as good as any other brand. Usually after removing my makeup I still feel like my face isn't completely clean, but after using this micellar water just once to remove my makeup my face felt flawlessly clean.

Ladies, chime in. What are some of your friday favorites?

DIY Sponge-Dyed Ombre Sneakers
You'll need: • Gloves • Syringe (1 per color) — Optional but recommended :) • Rubber Cement — Optional • Masking Tape — If you don’t have rubber cement • Sponge • Popsicle sticks for mixing the dye • Fabric Dye (Liquid or Powder) • Paintbrush (Make sure it’s clean — I suggest using a new brush; just buy the cheapest one) • Plastic Cups for mixing dye • Hot water • Newspaper or anything to cover your work area • Wear clothes you don’t mind having fabric dye spilled or splattered on Step 1: Bring out your sneakers :D (old or new) Step 2: Cover all the rubber side strips with Masking tape or Rubber Cement to block out the dye from adhering to the rubber. You can remove it afterwards or wait for it to wear off We won’t be dipping the entire shoe in the dye mixture so there’s no need to cover the soles. Step 3: Now you have to wet/soak your sneakers (canvas part only) with HOT water. You can do so by using a paintbrush first then soaking it more with a sponge. Step 4: Make your dye mixture Step 5: Once you’re done mixing your dye mixture (darkest) ~ take out your atomizer and syringe (optional). I think the smaller atomizers will work best for sneakers as it won’t cover a large surface area. For bigger materials such as shirts, you can use the bigger atomizers (Yes, the one you use when ironing clothes) Step 6: Use your sponge to wet your sneakers again :) Make sure to cover the whole area~! Spray the back part of your shoe with the dye bath. Careful not to over-spray :) You can always spray again :D Step 7 : Now take your brush, dip it in your hot water and carefully blend out your dye (Colored to white areas of your shoe). Yes, we are now creating the ‘ombre effect’. Use more water as you get nearer the middle part of your shoe or wherever you want the ombre to end (white). Afterwards, clean your brush and dip it again in water (clean hot water). Now carefully brush water starting from the WHITE part of your shoe to the lightest ombre — this is to remove or make any hard lines more subtle. Repeat steps until you’re satisfied with your ombre. If you’re using only one color, you can stop here and let your sneaks dry :) Step 8: If you’re planning to have 2 or more colors, simply repeat steps 4 - 7.
DIY Missoni Chevron Shoes
Step 1: Gather supplies. One pair of white canvas sneakers Ruler Manila file folder or other stiff paper Pencil Scissors Fabric markers in various colors (ones with both a thick and thin tip are best) Step 2: Using the ruler, draw a straight line near the edge of the manila file folder. Step 3: Draw a second line a half-inch down from the first one. Use the ruler to make tick marks at every half-inch interval on both lines. Step 4: Next, create a zig-zag pattern inside the two parallel lines by connecting every other tic. For example, start at the bottom left-hand corner of the lower line, and connect to the second tic mark on the upper line. Connect the second tic-mark on the upper line to the third tic mark on the lower line, and so on. Step 5: Now that you've just created all of those triangles, cut away the lower row of them (sorry!). You should be left with what looks like a row of teeth at the bottom of the folder. Feel free to use this template to create a shark or bear costume for Halloween. Step 6: Okay, now take out your plain canvas shoes and remove the laces—you don't want to color over them, nor do you want to try to color around them. Step 7: Position the template onto the toe of the sneaker. You'll be working your way from the front to the back of the shoe. Position the template wherever you like it best, but we felt it was easiest to keep things lined up by having the point of one triangle in the center of the shoe. Step 8: Move the template back and trace another row of triangles, making sure all of the points more or less match up with the previous rows. To get a true Missoni look, vary the spacing of the template—there's no right and wrong with this, so feel free to have lots of thin rows and then one giant row, followed by a medium and small row, and so on. Step 9: Okay, now it's time for the fun part! Grab your fabric markers and start coloring in the rows, making sure that each row is a different color. The colors don't have to be spaced evenly or in any sort of pattern (but go for it if you want!), so feel free to switch it up as much as you'd like. If your markers have differently sized tips, use the thin edge to outline the rows, and the thick to fill them in. Step 10: To make your kicks look extra-polished, make sure you color the inside rim of the sneaker! You've come all this way, so don't skimp out on this step. Step 11: Now, it's time to color the tongue of the sneaker. This part can be a little awkward since it's hard to get a good angle, but don't worry, since you only see a little bit of the tongue, you don't have to be too accurate. Just do your best and color the parts you can see, trying to match the colors and patterns from either side of the shoe. Step 12: All that's left to do now is lace up the sneakers and take them for a test drive! Your friends are going to be so enamored with your DIY skills, that they're going to try to get you to make them a pair. Beware!
Makeup trends for 2019 !
Hi friends ! :) I brought make up trend ideas here!!!! With each new year, it brings a new wave of trends in all areas – but makeup is an ever-changing field that brings with it new and exciting (and perhaps even a bit bizarre!) styles, tips and tricks for you to reinvent yourself in 2019! (1) Glass Skin If you’ve ever seen someone with glowing skin that looks as if they’ve got a natural radiance to it, it’s possible that they’ve been won over by the ‘glass skin’ trend. A Korean beauty trick which has spread to the rest of the world which is leaving skin looking stunning, healthy and glowy. (2) DO YOU EVEN WEAR MAKEUP? If you’re not one of those people that wants to lose an extra half an hour to an hour of sleep just so that you can do your makeup in the morning, then 2019’s no makeup look will make you one happy bunny. Minimal makeup that is light, makes you look as if you’re not wearing anything while still looking effortlessly flawless is now in! Wave goodbye to the heavy contour, the thick baking, and the smokey eyes – looking like you’re wearing no makeup is now in and it’s here to stay! (3) Bold Lips If you’re reading this article and you’re someone who likes ‘extra’ makeup, don’t worry! It’s not all leaving us – yes, you might see fewer people contouring their cheeks but the one thing that people are clinging onto are bold lip colors. If you match this with a more natural base for your makeup, then it will make even more of a statement. (4) Colorful Mascara Colored mascara is back in – yes, all you 80’s kids who loved slapping on some bright blue mascara then you’re in luck. As most things do, this trend has come back into fashion. Using some colorful mascara adds a little something different to your makeup look that provides the same effect as a bold lipstick – it adds a pop of color to your look and makes you look extremely put together without having to put too much effort into it.
