Safari Style

Toy Watches-Safari Style

Toy Watches are known for colorful, cool and interesting watches. And this time, they are dressed to impress! They have lately come out with a new 100% unique watch, Safari. The watches have faces in animal prints like zebra and leopard. The bands come in white and black plasteramic bracelets, and have white or gold rhinestones around the face. I love these watches because they are so cool, stylish and hip! They can be dressed us, or down, and are so chic! The colors are great, but now that you know about all these terrific things about these safari styled watches you might be wondering: What will they look good with, and how do I rock the look?
Well, if that is your question you're reading the right thing, because below is all about how you can make these watches look amazing and fantastic, plus how you can make the look all yours!

1) How To Rock The Look...
Rocking the look is the simple part. Where the watch on the hand you don't write with to start. Then pair it with some brown or black leather string bracelets. Try to wear it with three quarter length sleeve shirts and tee-shirts. If you wear natural colors like greens, grays, whites, blacks and browns, the watches may look better. 

2) What To Wear...
For your clothing, you want deep green shorts, or jeans. For your nails, try creams, beiges, greens, yellows, browns, or light colored natural colors. Try simple necklaces like dog tags, or leather strings. As long as you feel good the look will be fabulous! 

3) Makeup...
Try nude lipsticks if you are tan or dark, and bright reds if you are fair. Try light pink lip glosses too! For the eyes, don't go too heavy on anything, but do put a little bit of brown eyeliner on, and some forest green eyeshadow. As for hair, do a high pony-tail, braid, or pigtails!

4) Accessorize It...
Go for big sunglasses that go from light to dark. For bags try totes or green/brown colored leather bags. Go for a safari patterned scarf, with some cute sandals, flip-flops or gold/green/brown colored ballet flats.

How To Steal Taylor Swift's Style

How To Steal Taylor Swift's Style...

Taylor has a sweet, cute yet fashionable style sense learn how to nab this diva's so-pretty look!

Lets start with Taylor's hair look... you can count on her to always have nice, soft wavy curls around her face. Getting Taylor's hair is easy.. all you need is a hair curler or some hair curlers. After doing that, simply let the curls fall beside your face, or put a clip at the side to get Taylors soft, pretty hair.

Now, for makeup! Taylor's makeup look is great. That "cat eye" look, and light colored lips are beautiful. Use dark blues and grey eyeshadows to do the eyes and a soft pink gloss on your lips. Plus, a nice pink blush tops off Taylor's look perfectly!

Finally, Taylor's great fashion sense! She usually many soft muted colors such as whites, creams and pastel pinks, which makes her clothing style very feminine. She sometimes also wears polka dots or floral prints or a cute skirt, and usually wears a sleeveless sundress or a sundress with flutter sleeves and a pair of heels, ballet flats or cowboy boots. Taylor has such a great style!

Open Letter: Teen Vogye

Alexa Chung is a true "it girl"when it comes to fashion. She has got amazing style, and she loves looking good. For anyone who is a Teen Vogue reader, you may have caught Alexa on this months cover.....

I love this cover. Alexa looks peaceful and relaxed and it is nice to see a real fashionista on the cover, as opposed to just another "hollywoodette". Alexa Chung defines Teen Vogue fashion which is why I was so happy to see she was the cover girl.

Also, the colours on the cover are gorgeous. I love how mellow and soft they appear. The baby blue and delicate rose pink reflect Alexa's sweet style and poised personality. 

Overall, I think Teen Vogue has had a lot of ultra awesome covers, but this one really stood out to me. Great work, Teen Vogue....I love you!

Talking Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj may be a chart-topping pop-rapper, but it is more than her music that is getting peoples attention! Nicki’s wild, outlandish style is turning heads. Elaborate candy-coloured wigs, bubble gum pink lipstick and leopard print unitards have all become synonymous with Nicki!

Some describe Minaj’s style as “really weird” or “strange.” But, celebrity style has taken a drastic turn in the past several years and pop fame is as much about the talent as the look. Performance art is the new chart topper!

Lady GaGa pioneered the trend during the rise of her fame in April 2008 after releasing the ultimate dance-anthem “Just Dance.” She shocked us all in wacky architectural attire, sky-high heels and edgy blonde wigs. Just three months later when Katy Perry hit the scene with her controversial single “I Kissed A Girl,” everyone was talking about Katy’s eye catching pin-up girl style. And Ke$ha made her mark with her glittery grunge style and bold eye makeup.
Fast-forward to the year 2011 and behold Nicki Minaj.  Her signature look is a combination of Gaga, Perry and Ke$ha all wrapped into one super star!  Minaj’s style is incredible and mixes perfectly with her music. Her sound is unique, her lyrics are spot on and her place in the male dominated rap world is secure….Nicki Minaji like those pioneers before her is a bright light  for those coming up the pop charts.

Celebrity Trend: T-Shirt Alert!

Some of our favourite leading ladies run a pretty hectic schedule! From interviews, to photo shoots to a-lister events it gets a girl thinking: how do they have any time to think about their outfits at all? A new celebrity trend is surfacing: t-shirt alert! It is true, your I've-worn-it-once-I've-worn-it-millions-of-times t-shirt is going to be putting you on the same level as the stars when it comes to style.

The classic T-shirt may be something you don't even think about you wear it so frequently, but that ultra-comfy, super-cute T has a long history to boast! Let's get schooled ladies: t-shirt time, the fashion edition!

As it turns out the T-shirt evolved from underwear popularly used in the 19th century! It ended up being cut from one-piece "union-suit" underwear into separate top and bottom undergarments. The two piece underwear was easy to wear and more comfortable. The top t-shirt would be long enough to tuck underneath the waistband of the bottoms. As years went by various t-shirt designs came and went, some had buttons and some did not, sleeve lengths varied as well based on the season! Either way, fast forward to the fabulous 2011 and we are seeing t-shirts particular on the stars!

Celebs love their t-shirts because they are comfortable, plus they are easy to slip on when they just want to run out to grab a coffee or get some shopping done. What could be better than a chic shirt you just have to throw on in run out the door?

Here are 5 mega-cool reasons to love your t-shirts:

#1: Comfort! Wearing a t-shirt is like wearing pj's all day long!
#2: Creativity! They come in so many styles and shapes it can be tough to pick.
#3:  Cute! T-shirts have always been seen as a super cute article of clothing.
#4: Seasons! You can wear a t-shirt layered over a long sleeved top in the cooler seasons and wear a t-shirt straight up when it gets sunny!
#5: Fun! With millions of ways to dress your T up or down, who could ask for a better piece of clothing?
