Here’s what you will need:

img_3289 (1)img_3287 (1)img_3282 (1)

I finally found the PERFECT and MODEST fringe skirt on Poshmark!! No slip needed!

Usually with a fringe skirt the fringe would not be full enough to be modest, however this one not only was a lined skirt, but the fringe was full of beautiful movement!

Oh did I mention that it was only $9?!

img_3426 (1)

Now that’s what I call a fringe skirt! Cannot believe this was a skirt originally from Forever 21! All you Poshmarkers go ahead and follow J’s Closet on Poshmark! Incredibly fast shipping and beautiful clothes! img_3425 (1)

πŸ’›πŸŒΉDisney Princess Beauty and the Beast Inspired Outfit! Featuring Shabby Apple!πŸ’›πŸŒΉ+ DIY Enchanted Rose!

Happy Saturday Lovelies!!

Disney fashion inspired looks are back!πŸ™ŒπŸ» You may remember this lookbook about a year ago where  I would try to replicate a Disney character’s outfit,makeup and hair with items I had in my closet!

Personally I  don’t celebrate Haloween but find it so much fun to dress up as a Disney Princess anytime of the year! β€οΈπŸ’™πŸ’› 

Here is a quick DIY Disney Inspired Princess Belle outfit with things you have already in your closet!  

   

I cannot wait to share with you all this Belle inspired outfit! 😍 drumroll pleaseπŸŽ‰ 

  I chose to channel my inner Belle from Beauty and the Beast!β€οΈπŸŒΉπŸ’›

Okay you guys I must confess Belle is definitely my favorite Disney Princess!😍😍🌹❀️

I recreated Belle’s ball gown look with the help of this gorgeous Shabby Apple Dress!!πŸ˜πŸ’›πŸ™ŒπŸ» 

  
The style of it is called the “West End Dress” and it’s stunning! The bow wrap around style made the fit just right! I love that it has a tie that I can adjust depending on how tight/loose I want it! 

It features a gorgeous satin sheen with a flared bottom! 

   
    
 How to Belle’s Hair:

for Belle’s hair all you’ll need is: 

~hair elastic 

~bobby pins 

~Hairspray 

~Brush

~Yellow Ribbon 

First you want to curl your hair with a one inch curling iron or wand! Next you’d want to do a small half up half down hair poof and reserve the hair on the sides of your head to pin later! 

Make the small hair poof and tie it! 

Place the yellow ribbon on top of the poof and secure with bobby pins ! 

(Remember to “X” your Bobby pins for maximum security) 

Take the hair that you reserved and tease the sides and pin in place! 

Super easy and takes about 15 minutes ! 

How to Belle’s Makeup: 

For Belle’s makeup the key is soft Browns and rose golds on the lid with bright red lips! I achieved th Belle look using my favorite makeup pallete ever: The Disney Beauty Books!! 

 

 

  
The packaging alone is worth it!! I picked up three of the 4 books in Walgreens back in April and I’m obsessed!πŸ˜πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ’• 

   
    
    
 
I love how the eyeshadow names relate to the movies!πŸ’™β€οΈπŸ’› Quality wise they’re not the best I’ve ever tried (sorry Disney Lorac stole my heart) but they’re pretty good and a must if you’re a Disney Princess fanatic like me!πŸ’™β€οΈπŸ’›πŸ‘‘ 

  
Now my favorite part of the Disney photoshoots have to be “DIY’ing” the props! Of course who can forget the Enchanted Floating Rose from Beauty and the Beast! 

I went online to see if buying it would be cheaper than making it but found my answer quickly when I saw that they ran up to $180! 😱 

So I just made it instead for under $16! 

You will need :

~Dome Bell Jar 

~Plastic Rose from Michaels/Walmart ! 

You can even find bell jars at your local thrift store! 

Also I think it would be adorable to add string lights around the rose for a cute nightlight /room decor !

   

  
   
 
I hope you all have a great day tommorow and I’ll be talking to you soon lovelies!πŸ’• 

Xoxo

Disney Princess Cinderella + Mint Tulle Skirt Outfit! Featuring Space 46 Boutique!

Happy Monday Friends!!

Disney Fashion Week is in full force and we are starting off the week with another Cinderella Inspired Outfit!

IMG_3235

IMG_3326-1

IMG_3703

IMG_3698

You may have recalled two of my past Cinderella Inspired outfits, but I couldn’t help myself for one more go at this stylish Princess!

IMG_4491

So for this week I wanted to channel my inner Cinderella in a more subtle way!

IMG_4478

You guys!! I finally found my holy grail tee shirt!!

Disney and Vogue ?!! Together?!! Ugh this is perfection beyond belief!

Two of my favorite obsessions wrapped up into one glorious top!

I scored this awesome shirt late one night browsing through Poshmark for just $10!

IMG_4480

I decided to pair up my Vogue Cinderella Shirt with my mint tulle skirt from Space 46 Boutique!

I have seen this dreamy tulle skirt all over Pinterest and I just HAD to get my hands on one!

I finally pulled the trigger and bought my first Space 46 tulle skirt! They are totally worth every penny!

My favorite part of this skirt is the satin waistband, and the volume of the skirt! Not too poofy and not too flat but just right!

I think Goldilocks would approve πŸ˜‰

IMG_4488

IMG_4475

For accessories and shoes I wore my single strand rhinestone necklace with my DIY Cinderella Shoes!

I decided on a single strand necklace so it would add some shine to the outfit but wouldn’t distract from the wording of the actual shirt. And for $1 you just can’t beat that! I actually bought a back up of the necklace!

For shoes I couldn’t decide on which pair, so I wore both! lol

The first pair I purchased it from a shoe clearance sale at the mall for just $5.99! They’re double strapped and have the coolest holographic print all over them!

IMG_4484

IMG_4472

IMG_4469

The second pair of heels were my Silver Glitter Heels I made from an old pair of pumps I had laying around!

Here’e the link to my DIY Cinderella Shoe tutorial! So Easy and a great inexpensive way to spruce up your old heels!

IMG_4493

IMG_4486

For hair and makeup: I went for my go to Retro 60’s Inspired Half Up- Half Down Do!

It’s really quite simple and some of you on Instagram have requested a hair tutorial, which I am currently working on!

My go to makeup is quite neutral, which includes just layering shadows of light brown, medium brown and dark chocolate brown to enhance the crease! Big lashes, and bold winged eyeliner have become part of my usual makeup routine.

My go to palette is definitely the LORAC PRO/LORAC UNZIPPED! The shadows are pillow soft and blend out gorgeously!

I used to be a total Urban Decay junkie now I am a LORAC girl all the way!

Well that wraps up today’s post!! Hope you enjoyed it and remember to keep a smile throughout your Monday Blues!

❄️Disney Fashion Week! ❄️⛄️Featuring Anna from Frozen⛄️❄️

Happy Saturday Lovelies!πŸ’™
Yes it’s time for my favorite look book of all time.. Disney Fashion Week!!
IMG_3235.JPG
The part of my blog where I channel my inner 5 year old dreams!πŸ˜‚β„οΈ

IMG_3232.JPG
This week is I decided on being Anna from Frozen!πŸ˜β„οΈπŸ’™β„οΈπŸ’™β„οΈ

IMG_4433.JPG

IMG_4432.JPG

IMG_4399.JPG

IMG_4430.JPG
I think out of all the Disney looks I’ve recreated this one by far has been the easiest for sure! I chose to recreate Anna’s Coronation Look because in all honesty I cannot rock pig tails like she can! So without further ado, let’s get started on the basics of this look!

Here are some tips and tricks to look like Anna with things you already have around the house!

Step 1: Anna’s Coronation Hair

IMG_4431.JPG

This hairstyle was so easy to recreate! Basically all you do, is part your hair in the middle and take your hair from both sides behind your ear and braid the sections.
Next you want to tease your crown and secure it with bobby pins.
Now Anna’s bun is pulled to the back of her head but for me personally I prefer to make a cute side bun that hangs low to frame my face.
Add some finishing hairspray and you’re done!

IMG_4435.JPG

Step 2: Anna’s Floral Shirt +Skirt!

Of course we can’t forget about her signature black floral top!!
I’ve seen plenty of tutorials on how to make one but I actually purchased a very inexpensive dress from EBay!

IMG_4436.PNG
The top is so cute in itself but the skirt was very cheap looking and it resembled too much like a cosplay and not a fashion inspired outfit , so instead I cut the skirt part out and wore my satin green ball gown skirt!

IMG_4430-0.JPG

Step 3: Anna’s Makeup!

I so enjoyed this makeup look and will definitely be rocking it again!
So for Anna’s makeup we got to remember that she’s in a very cold/freezing environment❄️⛄️, thus rosy pinched cheeks is only natural that she’d have!

IMG_4434.JPG

IMG_4386.JPG
For my eye makeup I applied very lightly a luminescent white as my base.
For my crease I added a soft brown all over the lid and further defined my crease using a dark brown from my Lorac Unzipped Palette!

For a bit more fun I added a cool toned violet shadow on my blending brush and softly applied it to my lower lash line for that extra “ice cold ” feel! ❄️⛄️

Lips! If you notice Anna not only has rosy bright pink cheeks but also a bright pink lip color!
I used my fav Wet N Wild Mega Last Lip Color in “Cherry Picking” ! These lipsticks are amazing!! So rich in pigment and smooth to apply oh and they’re a steal at just $1.99!!

IMG_4376.JPG
And that’s it!!
Three easy steps to achieve Anna from Frozen!❄️⛄️
I hope you all have found this helpful and til next time!!
Xoxo,

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!🐸
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

🍌Minions Movie Outfit + Easy DIY Cupcakes!!🍌

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 !🍌😍

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! πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›
I got them from Claire’s about two weeks ago!

IMG_3111.JPG

IMG_3112.JPG
I mean how cute is this minion tumbler!!??πŸ˜πŸ’›πŸŒπŸ˜πŸ’›πŸ˜πŸ’›
#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 !!πŸ˜πŸ’›

IMG_3170.JPG

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