Throwback Thursday: Trends The Need to Come Back

As I look over this list once again of what should most definitely make a come back, I realize that nearly all of these trends are from 80’s and 90’s but I am so ok with that

Leg warmers: I have loved these forever and love how they are coming back in style, LegWarmsHeels2usually being worn with boots, but I love them almost more when you can pull them off with heels.


Chokers: I love how these look and can give either a edgy or classy addition to any outfit depending on the one you choose. You can also be very creative with how you choker1style them, I love the look of them with layered necklaces at varied lengths!


Windbreakers: Functional and they honestly just look pretty cool with bright colors and being a little oversized on the wearer makes them even more comfy, as well as the athletic vintage feel that they can add to your outfit. And even though most are  pretty out there with the colors you can always choose a more low-key style!


Scrunches: Obsessed. They look so good especially with a high pony and add an adorable feel with a bit of high fashion.scrunche


Accent Braids: I find these so dainty and adorable, as well as the fact that they can AccentBraid1make your hairstyle seem either whimsical by mixing them in underneath, or a little rocker edgy by doing it in a French braid style closer to your head.



Anything you want to add to the list?!


Beauty Blogger Tag

Wow…I have really been off my A game this week… and for that I really apologize, but hey i typed this with both my hands this time so thats a plus! (if that doesn’t make sense check out this post and then continue to read and all will be understood. LOL)

However I have given a peak inside my soul with the Beauty Blogger Tag, with a big thanks to Ryane Zamora Beauty for the tag! I had so much fun answering these questions and can’t wait to hear my nominees responses!




Break Up Boss

  1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
 Pin straight, as in I can’t even curl it. But I shouldn’t complain!
  2. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
 My hair is completely natural.
  3. Do you wear the same style everyday, or do you change it?
 Depends, with my hair being so light it tends to look a little greasy sometimes but it is not good to wash it everyday so on those days I usually just wear it high in a bun.
  4. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
 I usually do my own, but perhaps once or twice a year I get them done, ya know college student on a budget.
  5. How often do you change your nail polish?
 During swim season probably once a week before weekend meets because it chips so much in the pool. But in offseason, kind of just of whenever I feel like it!
  6. Do you polish your toes in the winter or just the summer?
All year round!
  7. How long does it take for you to put on makeup?
 Only about 10 to 15 minutes, I don’t do much even when I am going for a night out.
  8. What do you do first? Face or eyes?
 Always eyes because one makeup tip that I have always remembered is how eye makeup can fall onto the rest of your face making it harder to take off if you have already done your face!
  9. Do you collect makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?
 I usually just buy what I need. Something I do collect though is nail polish, which I also consider to be make up. (:
  10. How often do you wear false eyelashes?
 Never have…maybe will?
  11. Do you do a full face of makeup everyday?
 Not really. I mean I wear a tinted moisturizer nearly everyday and some powder and mascara on my eyes, so technically my full face is covered but I wouldn’t say its anything to intense…Lol
  12. Do you wear makeup when you’re home alone or with family? Not really…
  13. Will you leave the house without makeup?
 Oh most definitely…no shame J
  14. How many high-end products do you have?
 I think the only technically high end product that I have is my Naked 2 Eye shadow palette. I often don’t find myself needing anything too high-end.
  15. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you’re getting dressed?
 Usually just in the morning as I’m getting ready unless I have a big presentation or a reason to dress up the next day.
  16. How often do you change your handbag?
 Well at school I just use the same backpack everyday, but I also only really have to purses or hand bags that I would really use so it just depends on the outfit.
  17. What time do you wake up and go to sleep?
 Well it all depends on the time of year. During swim season I wake up anywhere from 5am to 5:30am depending on the day. On Sundays we can sleep in until our hearts desire. During off-season we only practice twice a week, which I wake up at 5:30 for. When I don’t have practice I usually wake up around 8:45 unless I am going to go to the gym to workout, then I will get up around 7:15.
  18. How often or when do you workout I try to workout everyday, but since I just had surgery I have had to scale it back a little. I often workout in the afternoon, sometimes the morning depends on that day! During swim season though I swim/lift once or twice a day so that is all the working out I really need in my schedule!
  19. Left handed or right handed?
  20. How tall are you?
I’m about 5’9!
  21. Do you speak any foreign languages?
 Unfortunately no but I really wish I did!
  22. How many pets do you have?
 One. The love of my life Murphy Bartus Quinn (Read all about him 🙂
  23. How often are you on Blogger?
 I am on WordPress at least once a day 🙂
  24. Do you read comments posted on blogs?
 Most definitely I love hearing what yall have to say!
  25. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?
 Yes! Sometimes I forget to actually get them but its thought that counts!
  26. How did you come up with your blog name?
 Well I knew what I wanted my blog to be about, essentially its for people who find themselves in between a girly girl and a tom boy because that’s where I find myself. So I figure I’m kind of like a princess but without a tutu…
  27. What kind of camera do you use for your photographs? My iphone4!
  28. How often do you clean your house?
 Well my dorm I try to keep fairly tidy but I probably do a real good clean every two weeks!
  29. What’s your favorite color?
 tie dye…does that count…I’m making it count.
  30. Do you swear? Not very often but I guess it depends on the situation. I really try not to.
  31. What are you doing with the rest of your day?
 Well I have to attend an extra credit ballet for my music class and then do some homework…and probably grab some dinner! Hopefully get the chance to write a blog post 🙂
