๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡ทModest Fourth of July Outfit Inspiration ๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡ท

Hello and Happy Fourth Everyone! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’™

Wooo I barely made the cut this year for Fourth of July outfits! (It always gets crazy busy toward the end of June/beginning of July!) 

Fourth of July is my favorite holiday๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜Š (next to Christmas of course!)  

I just love all the fireworks, festivals and food๐Ÿ˜‰


I rarely shop for a new outfit on the Fourth of July because more than half of my wardrobe already is red, white and blue or nautical! 

So let me challenge you today to shop your own closet and create your own unique #ootd๐Ÿ‘Œ By mixing and matching pieces you already own! 

For a little outfit inspo here is what I came up with using items that were already in my closet!

  • Patriotic Sweater: Poshmark
  • White Tulle Skirt: Taralynn’s Boutique

  • Navy Polkadot Blouse: DownEast 
  • Red striped Midi Skirt: Taralynn’s Boutique 
  • Red Bow Heels: JustFab

โšซ๏ธโšช๏ธโœจBlack, White Striped Midi Skirt Outfit Featuring Two 12 Fashionโœจโšซ๏ธโšช๏ธ

Hello friends and Happy Thursday!! 

Boy what a week! Tests almost everyday got me feeling exhausted and stressed out but I have to remember to keep calm and dress up because that’s the only way I can relax and enjoy my day lol! 

For today’s outfit I decided on going all monochrome with my new fav belt from Two 12 Fashion!!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜โœจโœจโœจ

   
 
  
You guys this belt was made for me!!!! Aaah!!!๐Ÿ˜โœจโœจโœจ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป Its gold,AND  it has a bow !! What more could you ask for?!? 

I can see this belt with almost everything I wear! Gold metal bar belts are pretty awesome but that bow just makes it that much more glam!โœจ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

   
 
When I saw the belt I knew exactly what I wanted to pair it up with: black , white, and gold for a chic monochrome outfit! 

   
   
This skirt is definitely a classic! It’s from Taralynns Boutique !

It kind of reminds me of the popular Kate Spade striped midi skirt but for 1/3 of the price!! 

   
   
My black solid colored top is from Ross which was on clearance for just $3! Best $3 spent! 

My necklace is from Walmart and let me tell you how thrilled I am that Walmart has gorgeous boutique style necklaces for just $3-$5! 

For shoes I had to wear my Valentino inspired Rockstud heels! They go with every single outfit!๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

  
  
My bag was actually from a local Utah mall and they had a variety of colors: a nude/beige color, a red one and a black one! Knowing myself I knew I was going to dirty up the red and nude one way too quickly so I went for black! 

I adore a good structured bag almost like a satchel that resembles an antique doctor’s bag! 

   
 
For my hair I’m actually quite surprised on how it turned out considering I only did it in 15 minutes! You know those days where you are lazily curling your hair and you know it’s going to be a huge fail but you do it anyways? Well this morning was one of those days! I think what saved the curls was that I used the pin-curl technique. Basically you curl your hair and catch it before it falls in your hand and pin the curls up in a circle just like they did back in the 50s!  

 
Well that wraps up today’s post!! 

Hope you enjoyed it and make sure to keep  smiling today๐Ÿ˜„โค๏ธ 

God Bless!

Xoxo,

Ashley

DIY Disney Princess Nail Art๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ‘‘+ Outfits!

Hello Everyone!
Today’s post is uber exciting because it’s all about Disney princesses!๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ
I’ll be showing you two different nail art designs inspired by Disney Princesses! ๐Ÿ‘‘
Let’s get Started!!๐Ÿ’•

IMG_3232.JPG
My first nail tutorial is actually fool proof and anyone yes Anyone can do it!
For one of my Disney princess photoshoots I wanted to dress up my nails to go along with my outfit!
IMG_3507.JPG
I found this adorable shop on Etsy called Nana’s Imagination ! ๐Ÿ‘‘ I immediately fell in major love with these Disney princess Nail decals!!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
The shipping was phenomenal she shipped within the hour !๐Ÿ˜ณ
When they arrived I immediately grabbed all my nail supplies and got to “work”.LOL

You will need:
~White Nail polish (love love this White out one from Rue 21!)
~ Top Coat
~ Cup of Water
~ Cooking Spray (optional)

IMG_3500-0.JPG
1. First you want to paint two coats of your opaque white nail polish! Immediately spritz your wet nails with the cooking spray. This is optional but for the most impatient girl on the planet (me๐Ÿ˜œ) it’s a must! Literally your nails will be smooth and dry to the touch within a minute if not less! It’s a lifesaver!

IMG_3502.JPG

IMG_3502-0.JPG
2. Next you want to take a paper towel and remove the excess oil from your nails and dry them off a bit.
Get a glass of water ready and dip your nail decals in the water face down! Make sure to cut as close to the princess image as possible! (Let your Princesses go for a swim!๐Ÿ‘‘lol)

IMG_3503.JPG
After about 10 seconds or so, you will notice that the nail decal will start peeling away from the cardstock.
I used a toothpick to grab the nail decal and I placed it on my nails one by one!

IMG_3504.JPG
3. Lastly Seal your princesses with a topcoat and you’re done!!
I have to rave about this top coat I found at Dollar Tree! It’s Ahmazing!! Fun fact about me at the age of 14 I used to do acrylic nails as my job back in the day, so I’ve tried out the best nail polishes/topcoats and I’ve got to say that this one from the Dollar Tree is equal if not better to those big name brands! For $1 you can’t beat it!

IMG_3506.JPG
On a side note how cute is cinderella’a glass slipper?!

IMG_3507-0.JPG

Beauty and the Beast Nail Tutorial๐ŸŒน
For my next nail tutorial will be inspired by my favorite Disney Princess Belle from Beauty and the Beast!๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŒน

IMG_3678.JPG
You will need:
~Yellow Nail Polish
~ Red Acrylic Paint
~Green Acrylic Paint
~ Topcoat
~Gold Glitter (optional)
1. Paint all your nails except your thumb and ring finger a bright yellow.

IMG_3683.JPG
2. Draw the Enchanted Rose!
Take your red and green acrylic paint and make a small swirl in the center of your nail.
You can also use nail polish but I find that paint is thicker and not so runny!

IMG_3704.JPG
3. Make “c’s ” all round your center swirl as you form your rose! Lastly draw the green stem with a couple of thorns! Seal with topcoat and you’re done! Not bad for someone who is horrible at drawing! LOL๐Ÿ˜…

IMG_3682.JPG
For some added Glam I added glitter to the tips of my nails and of course a matching Belle to go along with it! ๐ŸŒน

IMG_3680.JPG

IMG_3679.JPG

IMG_3681.JPG
I hope you all enjoyed these nail looks!
Below I have attached some on my Disney Princess Inspired Looks!
Til Next Time,
God Bless!

Disney Fashion Week: Featuring Princess and the Frog!

Happy Saturday!!
Boy what a week, Disney fashion week that is! I have been throughly enjoying dressing up like Disney characters! Funny how an outfit can change your mood!

IMG_3235.JPG
Last night to celebrate DisneyLand’s 60th Anniversary we went to the Disney Fantasia Concert in Deer Valley! I have always been a HUGE fan of the Utah Symphony and being that it was Disney Themed made it 10000X better! IMG_3392.JPG
IMG_3393.JPG

IMG_3389.JPG
I love how causal and care free the atmosphere was!
We made ourselves a cute little picnic basket and enjoyed the performance!

IMG_3380.JPG
Crackers,,Cheese and Grapes? Yes Please!
(The adult version of a lunchable lol)

IMG_3394.JPG

So after a long day yesterday you’d think I would be too tired to dress up again?
Yes and no! lol
I saw this gorgeous skirt in the morning hanging in my closet and thought that would be so perfect for The Princess and the Frog!

IMG_3416.JPG

IMG_3422.JPG
For the longest time I have been wanting a bright neon green midi skirt!!
I mean it’s really bright and so full!
I got it from Proverbs31 Clothing!

IMG_3420.JPG

IMG_3421.JPG
Now since Tiana’s dress has both green and a soft yellow I knew exactly the shirt I needed for this look!

IMG_3424.JPG
I scored this gorgeous soft yellow blouse from Ross, for like $8!
For my accessories I added gold anywhere I could! So I threw on a glitter belt and a gold necklace both from DownEast!

IMG_3434.JPG

To finish the look off I wore my floral crown from Trendy Touch Boutique and was ready for some pictures!๐Ÿธ
The look was fairly simple and so much fun!

IMG_3435.JPG
Now I couldn’t help myself but to style this skirt another way!
(You know when you have an outfit idea in your head and need to get it done before you forget?) lol

Here’s Style #2 for styling a neon green midi skirt!

IMG_3426.JPG
I just wore a simple black and white striped top (it’s actually a pencil dress from She-Inside)
And some black studded heels to add some texture!

IMG_3425.JPG

IMG_3428.JPG

IMG_3427.JPG

IMG_3430.JPG
Pretty simple eh?
When you have a skirt this bright it doesn’t take much to make a statement and stand out!
Well that wraps up today’s post!!
Til Next Time!
God Bless !
Xoxo,
Ashley

Before I could do the look I needed Jasmine’s Signature Headband!

All I did was hot glue the gem onto the ribbon and that’s it!

IMG_3047.JPG

IMG_3041-0.JPG

Now you can’t do Princess Jasmine without the genie lamp of course!!
I bought mine online at Walmart’s website for just $5!
I spray painted it gold because it’s original color was more of a brassy brown.

IMG_3251.JPG

IMG_3253.JPG

IMG_3268.JPG
For my hair I teased it like they did back in the 80’s lol!
I mean the amount of strength I built up in my arms from teasing my hair for this look was insane! Lol

One can of hairspray and 40 Bobby pins later…

IMG_3276.JPG

IMG_3271.JPG

IMG_3278.JPG
Let’s talk outfit for a second!
I scored this gorgeous mint pleated maxi dress at JCPenney for an amazing deal using the magic of stacked coupons!
I saw the dress and I immediately knew I had to have it for this look but the price tag was a whooping $80 bucks!
I waited about 2 weeks and the dress was on sale for $60. Not bad. But being an avid clearance shopper I wanted more savings.
So I had a $20 OFF $50 mobile coupon using my Snip Snap App (hallelujah!)
And then the sweet cashier said that I had a $10 OFF style rewards coupon available!!
Whoooo! Scored this dress for $20!
Now that’s my kind of deal!

๐ŸŒMinions Movie Outfit + Easy DIY Cupcakes!!๐ŸŒ

Hello and finally Happy Friday!!
Well I am extremely ecstatic because (a) My weekend is going to be 3 days! (b) The minions movie premieres today!!
So to celebrate let’s start off of with some yummy Minion cupcakes!!
They are so super easy to make! Here’s what you’ll need :
Twinkies or “Cloud cakes” lol
Black icing
Blue icing
Candy eyes
Cupcake liners
Your favorite cupcake recipe! (preferably anything banana flavored!)

IMG_2185.JPG
So let’s get started!
I normally make my cupcakes a few days in advance and freeze them overnight! I recommend you doing this in three easy steps, bake,freeze and decorate !
This will allow you to focus on each step and executing it more efficiently and stress free !
Frozen cupcakes will be a thousand times better to decorate I promise !!
I took my favorite dessert decorator Pro to ice all the cupcakes with blue icing.

IMG_2186.JPG

Next you want to open your Twinkies and cut them in half!

IMG_2188.JPG

IMG_2189.JPG
With your pastry bag or icing tool you want to make two small circles with the black icing . Carefully place the candy eyes on top and watch how instantly a black ring will form around it making it look like the minions glasses!

IMG_2190.JPG

IMG_2191.JPG
Give them the rest of their glasses and a smile !๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ˜

All that’s left to do is to put your minions onto the blue iced cupcake!

IMG_2204.JPG

IMG_2200.JPG

IMG_2202.JPG

IMG_2201.JPG
In a sea of minions! Lol
I loved the way they turned out and you don’t need to be a professional cake decorator to make them!
I brought these to my Sunday School class and they LOVED them! Even the adults were asking me of they could have one! #nevertooold

IMG_2209.JPG

IMG_2206.JPG
These are a great way to start off the weekend and the movie premiere!
Well that does it for the tutorial and I’ll be showing you my minion inspired outfit next!

IMG_2210.JPG
Now some may say I got a little too minion crazy over the past week !
I have to agree with them!
Claire’s was having an entire section of minion related items and well I just couldn’t say no to it! (Darn those cute minions)

IMG_3099.JPG

IMG_3100.JPG

IMG_3103.JPG

IMG_3101.JPG
Luckily for me I already had most of the minion outfit already in my closet!
Denim and Yellow . That’s it ! It’s as easy as that!

IMG_3169.JPG
I wore a yellow blouse I scored from the clearance rack at Jcpenney’s for just $4!!
And my chambray skirt is originally from Modcloth but I got it from Poshmark for a steal!!
Love how it ties into a cute bow on the front!

IMG_3105.JPG

IMG_3107.JPG
Hahha call me crazy but I kinda like these goggles! ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›
I got them from Claire’s about two weeks ago!

IMG_3111.JPG

IMG_3112.JPG
I mean how cute is this minion tumbler!!??๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’›๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’›
#movieready

IMG_3114.JPG

IMG_3115.JPG

IMG_3113.JPG
I actually picked up this scarf from ..yep you guessed it Claire’s!! But the first two times I just didn’t feel like buying it so I left it behind twice!
Until a couple of days ago when I saw that there was only 1 left! It was a life or death decision! (Exaggerating much..? Lol)
So I chose to get it and I’m glad I did because it’s so darn adorable !!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’›

IMG_3170.JPG

IMG_3168.JPG
Well that wraps up this #minions Post!!
Til next time!
God Bless!
