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...

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!
