Feminine, Floral, & Fringe Embroidered Kimonos

Okay all the heart eyes for this trend! As far as I’m concerned you can just go ahead and embroider everything!

There’s just something so romantically bohemian about blue and white embroidery.

PRO TIP: Trendy Style on a Budget!

This college student loves to save as much money as possible and there are two stores that I always make sure to check out!

Ross and Rue 21!

Here’s the thing, not only will these two stores keep you in the know, but ultimately they will save you money! Remember trends will eventually fade away (unless it’s the infamous chambray shirt) then you’d probably be better off saving as much as you can.

Summer Trend 2017: Dainty Layered Necklaces & Wood Accessories

FullSizeRender 12

There’s nothing more chic than a daintyย 5 layered necklace! Also, there is nothing more tragic/irritating when they become tangled! You may want to hang these necklaces to avoid the panic of untangling them last minute for your outfit. ( R.I.P to all the necklaces broken due to my impatience)

And onto today’s blog post which coincidentally is also pink!

Oh my! Pink, floral, modest and oh so comfortable? This dress is all of the above and so easy to move in! ย This gorgeous dress is from ย Winsome Sash Boutique, a clothing boutique that delivers a fusion of polished sophistication and elegance combined with classic modesty.

I adore the color scheme of this dress, the pink, brown and mauve color palette is so perfect for spring and summer.

Now, let’s talk about the length of this maxi dress, I am a shortie (5’3 to be exact) and this dress is very long, longer than most maxi dresses so I would definitely recommend wearing some tall heels with this dress!

Surprisingly, I did not feel the need to wear anymore accessories beside my go-to cognac wavy band belt!

P.S. Check out how long my nails grew! A blog post on what has been working to grow out my nails is coming soon!

You would think that this long sleeved dress would be too hot to wear in the heat of the day, but actually I noticed that because of the lightweight material it is made out of it’s actually quite a breathable dress!

I am so grateful for this past week that we were able to reach 28K followers! And it is honestly crazy to think that this journey started with a 17 year old girl who was so camera shy, and ย hid when people busted out a camera. lol! It’s been a great journey full of learning and interacting with you girls who know the struggle of choosing to live a life that is pleasing to God even when the world is constantly opposing it. I have found so much encouragement and joy by your sweet comments, emails and collaborations! THANK YOU! Continue to grow in Christ and never be ashamed of promoting modesty, this world truly needs your “salted light”!

Matthew 5:13-16(KJV)

13ย Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

14ย Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

15ย Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

16ย Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

God Bless,

Ashley Amber

๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿƒ๐ŸBoho Fall Florals! Featuring Adorn It Shoppe๐Ÿ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ‚๐ŸŒปย 

Hello lovelies!!โค๏ธ

Happy Tuesday! Is it just me or are the weeks just flying by?! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ Before you know it it’s going to be Christmas! ๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ But honestly as much as I love Christmas my ultimate favorite season is for sure Fall!๐Ÿ๐ŸŽƒ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป 

  
  
Okay so let me tell you about this dress from Adorn it Shoppe! ๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚!! I was the happiest person ever when I received this in the mail because first of all its from Utah๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป  (so it was nice to have a little bit of home!) and secondly because it’s sooooooooo soft!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‚ 

Seriously like velvet soft!

   
    
   
I’ve seriously been loving the fall floral trend! (Fall floral roundup coming soon!๐Ÿ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ‚) it incorporates summer trends with the rich, warm tones of fall!๐Ÿ 

For this look i really wanted to show my boho side to the max! Bohemian isn’t a style I usually gravitate towards, but sometimes it fun to step outside your comfort zone and try new styles! 

I knew it was key to have a floral headband somewhere in this look! 

Sadly I had left all my floral headbands back home but my awesome roommate Linla let me borrow hers! ๐ŸŒป *fun fact in our dorm hall alone there are 7 twins within three doors of each other!๐Ÿ˜ฑ 

Lol

(Us At the Luau!๐ŸŒด๐ŸŒบ) 

  
Back to the outfit for my hair it was a must to create loose carefree waves!

   
    
 
These waves are so easy I promise! 

For best results you’d want to use a curling wand and mine happens to be the NuMe curling wand -which I ever so love!โค๏ธ I love it even more because it was free-best price in town๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป 

Back when Ipsy was called “My Glam Bag” they gave out NuMe gift certificates for their curling wands!! I chose the three barrel interchangeable one! It comes with a variety barrel sizes that create different hairstyles!LOVEโค๏ธ 

   
    
   
For my makeup I actually tried a tip from GossMakeupArtist on Youtube! Sometimes foundation can tend to look a bit cakey especially if you’re going for a matte look! To make your foundation look more skin like and glowy and healthy you add a just a drop of your favorite oil! Could be jojoba, coconut, tea tree etc! My favorite is actually Bio-Oil I recently picked up for my face! I have heard so many good things about it and I have to say it was worth it! I have noticed some spots on my face getting lighter and my skin looks very glowy!๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

Anyways mix that drop of oil with your foundation and your skin will look healthy and nourished!

  
Gaso! I almost forgot to mention my favorite fall belt ever from Two 12 Fashion!! It’s a gorgeous brown/red brick colored wrap belt! So chic! I love the warmth it gave the dress !

  

Well that wraps up today’s post!

I’ll be back later today with more fall looks!๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒป 

Til Next Time,

God Bless

For this Disney Princess Look I decided on being Princess Jasmine!!

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_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.

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…

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!
