The Anastasia contour palette is another beauty product that seems to have taken over the makeup world. For any of you using Instagram, i'm sure you have seen the 'before and after' posts of women contouring their faces and well it can be a bit.... shocking. After debating trying out this product I finally decided to give it a go to see what all the hype was about. I purchased the product at my local Ulta for $40.

A bohemian outfit is filled with fun prints, layering, and chunky jewelry. Of course we also can't forget the long, haven't brushed my hair in weeks hairstyle. For those that may not know what "bohemian" or "bohemianism" is it's essentially a group of like-minded people who are free-spirited vagabonds. What a lifestyle I wish I could live. Wandering from place to place, doesn't that sound like a dream?
Unfortunately, I can't go and drop $200 on a perfect boho-inspired outfit from Free People, so I make due with what I have. Today my outfit is bohemian inspired with a bit of a modern touch.

I'm like most college students: broke. I love fashion and do splurge on very nice things every so often but I LOVE a good thrift find. Now, once you get past the off-putting smell, and obscure mix of customers then gaze past that hideous 80's track suit.... you might just find that piece of clothing that makes it all worth while.
The other day I decided to make the 15 minute trek to the nearest Goodwill (and yes, I say trek because I hate driving so this is far for me) and found some great items. There is one item that most people hate but I simply adore... mom jeans. I mean, I could put those babies on, sit down and have a whole cake to myself and no one would even notice! Maybe.
I ended up spending $29 and walking out with a pair of high waisted mom jeans, high waisted shorts with a fabulous Betty Boop patch on the right bun, black velvet spaghetti trap dress, floral spaghetti strap dress, and a long sleeve sheet floral dress. I did find it a bit humorous that the quiet man behind me found my sheer floral dress to be, "a really cute top." Not sure if that was genuinely a nice compliment or a tad creepy since the whole thing is well..... SHEER.
Who's says you need to spend a ton of money to look great? I did however need to wash these items numerous times to get the smell out. When I have time I would love to go to the thrift stores in Seattle. That's where the real treasures are hidden.
Breakfast. The most important meal of the day and one that I simply cannot go without. For me, I need my morning cup of coffee and a little food or else I am HANGRY, who's with me there? Typically I would grab an egg or two and call it good but sometimes that just isn't enough, especially when I have a long day ahead. Well, luckily i've found the most delicious3-step pancakes that will supply you with the energy to make it through those tough mornings.
I'm a 24 year old from Seattle, WA who's a little out of the ordinary. I have a unique style that i've learned to adapt to what I l love, and not what is deemed "acceptable". Fashion is a chance to explore, take risks, and have FUN. Isn't that what life is all about? ;)
