Hello my lovelies,
Hope you're all doing well. I know it's been quite a while since I updated my blog. If you reside in England then I'm sure you know that a majority of students were on half term ^_^. I was more than delighted to spend the weekend with my Grandma and Cousin. My aunt got married over the weekend and it was a glorious occasion tons of people gathered to share one special moment. I'm so glad that she's found someone to spend the rest of her life with and hope that they spend their days loving one another until death does them part. Any way enough of all that mushy mushy stuff. I'm sure a lot of you must be wondering why the quality of my videos seem much better huh? LOL well I got a camera over the weekend. I've been dying for an upgrade ever since I got the fuji s4080 and not to mention my samsung camera has tried so hard for me. So I thought I'd give it a rest. My mum was so kind to have bought me the canon 600d. It's a popular DSLR, amongst bloggers, youtubers, and even photographers.
I feel like things are looking up, slowly but surely. All I can say is thank you Jesus.
Well in this video I was getting ready for school. So get ready with me dolls!.....
So I haven't really updated much lately as I have been quite busy with school work and all but not to worry I have a lot of interesting videos with nice concepts lined up for you. Today I went shopping and bought all things H&M. I will make a haul video tomorrow and hopefully have it posted that same day. Besides that I've been looking around for statement pieces.
Now a statement piece is an accessory that gives your outfit that ''WOW'' factor. It could be a pair of heels, a leather jacket, jewellery, or a scarf. Whatever Item you choose to achieve that all so fabulous look, you need to ensure that it has this unique and intriguing look.
For instance, I tend to use jewellery to boost up my outfit, so when looking out for new pieces I am extremely picky. I love jewellery that possess an influenced design, perhaps from the stone or medieval ages, religion, or symbols.
Right, now that you understand the concept, let's explore the ways in which you can find the perfect statement piece.
When scouting for new jewellery I usually have in mind a colour scheme. I try to visualise my wardrobe and then pick colours based on a majority of the things I have. I am a big fan of neutrals and nudes so a lot of my clothes are black, white, grey, cream and all other kinds of nude. Once I've thought of the colours, I look out for things that will compliment what I have. Gold, silver and metallic jewellery are usual my go to. I rarely ever buy jewellery with bright colours on it because I find it tacky and also, I don't have many coloured clothes.
2. shapes | design
I tend to go after crosses and triangles. Any thing shaped that way be it earrings or a necklaces are most definitely up my street. Like I said earlier on some items you pick can have an extremely different concept like an eye or a kite, something different from the usual. Don't be afraid to pick those things, they make the outfit brave and daring :)
This is important and needs to be carefully considered. You don't want to overdo it. So you need to ensure that the size corresponds with your outfit. For example if you're wearing a plain shift dress then a choker necklace would compliment that beautifully, no matter the size. So be sure to put size into consideration
Once you've considered these three things you should be able to mix and match jewellery with clothes to create a chique, and interesting outfit.
You can use this same technique for scarves, bags, shoes, coats and other accessories .
Remember, Colour, Shape|design and Size.
Much love .
I'm sure you must all be wondering why I've made such a different post today. lol Well the reason is simple. Whenever I'm stressed or upset, I cook or bake and today I decided to make myself some lovely cookies for valentine's day. Believe it or not food is a way of calming yourself. That's why it's no surprise that we indulge in shoving spoons of ice-cream down our throats when we: receive a break up text, lose someone special or are just extremely ticked off. In my case I don't have a valentine, and I'll be completely honest with you, it sucks cause I'm a hopeless romantic. Sitting home alone and sobbing whilst watching titanic is most definitely NOT what I had in mind. I was thinking dinner, movie, picnic - in this cold no. But, you all know what I mean. It's a day to celebrate love, joy and happiness so why spend it being sad and sulking over past issues.
Whether, you're single, val-less or just grumpy these cookies will HEAL you! I promise. They are so tasty that you're most likely to forget what was making you cry for days upon days. And the best part, you are making them, so you can exercise all that pain and anger you feel into beating those eggs and whipping the butter. What better a way to release your anger.
So quit sulking put on your oven mittens and get baking!
