Next to me


“Next to meeeeeeee ooooh-hooo.. Next to meeeeeeeeee oooh-hoo.” HAHAHA I couldn’t think of a title and this song (Next to Me by Emeli Sande) played while I was getting ready yesterday and it’s been stuck on my head ever since!

I haven’t done an outfit-of-the-day post for a while now and I decided it was time for a new one! :) This is what I wore to my cousin’s first birthday party. :) I don’t think I’ll ever get used to posing in public so I decided to take these photos outside my room haha! I’d like to repeat that I am not a fashion blogger nor am I trying to be one. My blog is a lifestyle blog that focuses on beauty (my first love), some fashion (because I like to dress up), and food (my one true love)! <3

I love that this dress from Apartment 8 came with a brown braided belt! My cousin’s party had a pink color scheme so I decided to go with another pastel color so as to avoid looking like I’m part of the decor haha. This outfit is kinda special because I had a “stylist” (josh) who helped me pick out my dress plus shoes!

I almost wore my go-to nude pumps but josh wanted me to wear my salmon pumps which I think was a good idea because it added a pop of color to my look. I then paired everything with a teal and gold ring, gold earrings and my trusty gold casio watch.

I love the print on the back. The “x” design of the straps are a plus too!

Hair and Makeup

I got my hair done at Blo Blow Dry Bar in Rockwell. I asked them to braid my hair just because I felt like it would match my dress!

I chose a neutral smokey eye and applied my fave demi lashes from the face shop. I wore demi lashes to make the whole look very natural and not too dramatic. I paired it with a nude lip using my etude house lipstick. <3

For a pop of color, I used a teal eyeshadow to line my eyes. I feel like it made the whole look very fresh and young!

With my stylist for the day! I love that he always has something to say when it comes to my outfit and makeup looks but he lets me decide for myself in the end anyway. :D he’s the best!
