Today’s post will be featuring a Minnie Mouse inspired outfit from an adorable retro polkadot dress I received from the Classy Loft!

Minnie Mouse is probably the easiest of all Disney characters to recreate!

Here is what you will need:

  1. A Red polkadot dress or skirt
  2. Red Lipstick
  3. Yellow Heels
  4. Minnie Mouse Ears (optional)

I layered a white shirt from Ross that you guys have been asking me where I have been getting these plain, solid colored, scoop style shirts! Literally, these shirts are the perfect basics for any skirt! They are in the one size section  and are fitted! Perfect for my infamous poofy skirts!

img_5986

I adore the cut and style of this dress! So light but has a structured and defined waistline!

Classy Loft also sells cute and comfy modest clothing at affordable prices!!

I will be featuring more of their adorable clothing in the following weeks to come!

I have the cutest story to tell! As me and my good friend and photographer Trish were just about to wrap up our photoshoot, this little girl named came running up and screamed, “Minnie! Minnie! Oh I love Minnie mouse!!” LOL Needless to say, It made my day!

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

Happy Saturday Lovelies!💙
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!😂❄️

IMG_3232.JPG
This week is I decided on being Anna from Frozen!😍❄️💙❄️💙❄️

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,
Ashley💕

DIY Disney Princess Nail Art💕👑+ Outfits!

Hello Everyone!
Today’s post is uber exciting because it’s all about Disney princesses!👑😍❤️
I’ll be showing you two different nail art designs inspired by Disney Princesses! 👑
Let’s get Started!!💕

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 ! 👑 I immediately fell in major love with these Disney princess Nail decals!!😍😍😍
The shipping was phenomenal she shipped within the hour !😳
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 (me😜) 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!👑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 Tutorial🌹
For my next nail tutorial will be inspired by my favorite Disney Princess Belle from Beauty and the Beast!😍🌹

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! LOL😅

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! 🌹

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 Cinderella! 💙

Happy Friday Eve Everyone!!

Disney Week continues!! And I’m beyond excited to share with you the next Princess on my to do list!

IMG_3235-0

Drumroll please……🎶
IMG_3326-0.JPG

IMG_3344-0.JPG

IMG_3354-0.JPG
Yay!! Cinderella!! I adore Cinderella!!😍😍💙😍😍😍💙
But before I could do Cinderella I needed some of her signature pieces!
So I’ll show you how easy it is to DIY Cinderella Shoes and Her Black Necklace!
For the Cinderella shoes you will need:
Modpodge (Shiny kind)
Silver Glitter
Foam Brush
Jewels
Hot Glue
Baby Blue Paint (optional )
Black Vinyl (optional)
Old Pair of Heels!

IMG_3031-0.JPG
Step 1:
Prep your Shoes
Make sure you clean them real good so the paint will adhere better!

Step 2:
Apply one coat of Modpodge and sprinkle silver glitter all over the heels!
*A tray underneath is very helpful in not wasting any glitter!✨
Repeat this step once more until it has the coverage you desire! I did three coats!

IMG_3034-0.JPG

IMG_3033-0.JPG

IMG_3037-0.JPG
Step 3:
Seal the Glitter!
Unless you want to leave a trail of glitter everywhere you go, you might want to seal in all the fabulousness✨
It dries in about 2 hours or preferably overnight and will be completely sealed!

IMG_3039-0.JPG

IMG_3038-0.JPG
Step 4:
Decorate!!
Now comes the super fun part; decorating the shoes!!
Let your imagination run glam! (Cause I like glam more than wild lol)
I added some clear Crystal jewels from a broken necklace I had kept!

IMG_3042-0.JPG
Now these next steps are optional but I really wanted a Cinderella shoe!!
So I bought baby blue paint and painted the soles that color!
I also added the classic Disney logo with vinyl I had lying around the house! (Actually that’s a lie, I found the vinyl Inside my dad’s garage! Oops Thanks dad!!) He’s probably going to be confused why there’s a hole missing of material in the shape of Mickey mouse ears! LOL

I traced it out using a template I found online and voila instant shoe decal!!

IMG_3219.JPG

IMG_3220-0.JPG

IMG_3227-0.JPG

IMG_3350-0.JPG

IMG_3348-0.JPG

IMG_3349-0.JPG
Now I believe that the entire essence of Cinderella lies in her necklace!
So getting that detail right was a must!
It was actually quite simple to make it! I purchased black satin ribbon from Walmart folded it in half and sewed a hook and latch on the back of the neck!

IMG_3223-0.JPG

IMG_3337-0.JPG

IMG_3344-1.JPG
Now that all the accessories are done let’s get on with the outfit!💙
You guys this dress!!💙💙💙💙 From the moment I saw it I knew it was just right for Cinderella!!
I bought it off Etsy from a sweet lady that sells Authentic Vintage Clothing!
I am so excited to own this dress because it feels so awesome to know that another girl wore this in the 50’s!!
Back in the day it was actually made for Prom! LOL
And now it’s a cinderella dress! 😍✨

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

Before I could do the look I needed Jasmine’s Signature Headband!
I actually made one out of two items: 1. Turquoise Ribbon and 2. Costume Jewelry from the thrift store!
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!

IMG_3048.JPG

IMG_3050.JPG
Now all my props are done and it’s time to head to the Great Salt Lake for pictures!

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!

IMG_3275.JPG

IMG_3274.JPG

IMG_3262.JPG

IMG_3257.JPG

IMG_3263.JPG

IMG_3267.JPG
Princess Jasmine is all bout the GOLD!
So naturally all my accessories were gold including this cute gold glitter belt!

IMG_3259.JPG

IMG_3261.JPG

Well that wraps up today’s Disney Princess Look!

🍌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! 💛💛💛💛💛
I got them from Claire’s about two weeks ago!

IMG_3111.JPG

IMG_3112.JPG
I mean how cute is this minion tumbler!!??😍💛🍌😍💛😍💛
#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 !!😍💛

IMG_3170.JPG

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

💛❤️Disney Fashion! Easy Mickey Mouse Outfit💛❤️

Hello and Happy Friday Eve!💛❤️
Today’s outfit is one of my favorite lookbooks to do which is Disney Fashion!!
There just something so magical about dressing up like your favorite character!
Peek a boo!! I just couldn’t resist! Hehe!
IMG_3074.JPG
This is my second Mickey Mouse outfit recreation and I thought since i got a new red shirt I could easily do more Disney Looks! Including this one!

IMG_3086.PNG
Mickey Mouse is probably one of the easiest Disney outfits to recreate since practically any store sells polkadots!!

IMG_3068.JPG

IMG_3067.JPG

IMG_3066.JPG
I can’t tell you guys how OBSESSED I am with my Taralynn’s Boutique Skirt !
Ugh it’s so perfect and the material is such nice quality with a nice weight to it!( I prefer skirts made with heavier materials)

IMG_3077.JPG

IMG_3078.JPG

IMG_3076.JPG
Now a couple of weeks ago I was at Forever21 and saw these amazing Minnie Mouse / Mickey Mouse headbands for just $3!! There was a black polkadot one and a white one and of course I had to snag them both!
I actually wear them every morning when applying my makeup to get all the hair out of my face!
Great for face masks at night too!

IMG_3080.JPG
I definitely recommend buying solid colored tops at Ross! They’re so cheap and a must have in my closet!!💛👍
I scored this gorgeous red blouse for just $8!

IMG_3063.JPG

IMG_3088.JPG
Let’s talk handbags for a second!!😍
I was shopping at my local mall and there’s a store called the B.O.Y. Store (doesn’t make sense since they sell all cutesty and girly things)
And I stumbled across this gem of a bag!!
I mean come on!! All my weaknesses designed into one cute satchel!!
Bows, old fashioned closures, patent, and a structured body?!?

IMG_3077-0.JPG

IMG_3057.JPG
I’m definitely contemplating on purchasing the red one!! EEK😍❤️

Well that wraps up today’s #disneystyle

Any more Disney inspired looks/suggestions? let me know!!👍
Til Next Time
God Bless You!

Ashley
