Trend Alert: Chokers

90’s are back baby! The grunge style has been my favorite a lot recently and I am so excited more than dark tees are making a comeback. Although I was born in the late 90’s (1997 to be specific) I do not say “Oh my gosh I used to wear that!” I wish I could but about 17 years later I can officially I can without looking like a total weirdo.
I love how chokers now a days are completely different. All I could remember when I was younger was the “tattoo” chokers and now I think about it, I thought it was rather odd. Now I see starlets and teenage girls (who knows maybe guys are sporting the trend) wear a dark piece of thread around their neck with charms, or a sequined neck-band (like a headband but for the neck) or completely going against the grunge and having a very pretty choker.
The name may seem rather violent, but I believe it is a fun item to wear back-to-school. It is a piece to accessorize or just a small piece to make an outfit.  Also if you are not willing to pay so much for a choker, a favorite Youtuber of mine has a video on how to make your own without spending so much.

Inspiration Board

I do not own this!

Diclaimer: I do not own the picture! It was from Lauren Conrad’s Instagram and I was just too lazy to take a picture of mine!

If maybe Pinterest really isn’t your thing but you wanna keep all those pretty things together, what do you do? Start an inspiration board! Recently I have been scrolling mindlessly through Tumblr and Instagram and YouTube which is such a normal thing that I usually maybe every 5 seconds! So recently I have discovered MacBarbie07 on YouTube and I literally am OBSESSED with her! Not the creepy obsessed like I’m a stalker and… well I mean I like her fashion, videos and DIY.

I had watched her roomspiration video and I found this really cool room idea since I have recently moved this past summer and I have finally got my own room without living in a rented home so I can actually Elyseify my room! (And yes Elyseify is word, but sadly the Oxford people haven’t heard of it to put it in the dictionary). She had printed out pictures that she really liked and was going to stick them on her wall in the shape of a heart. If you want to do that, well that sounds really fun! I have also noticed that my friend Sam has an inspiration board on her notebook and maybe Lauren Conrad does too, she had it on Instagram.

If you don’t know what an Inspiration Board, its a place where you put pictures that you love and give you this happy and giddly feeling and you are inspire by it.

Since I have magazines since May 2012 and its February 2013, it was time to do a clean out. I have started what I called my “magazine” sometime last year but I never got up to date with it. So I had cut out the pictures and articles that I liked and then threw away the old magazines (even including the One Direction ones, tear).

To Elyseify my room, I have looked online and have saved pictures from Instagram and Tumblr to a folder which was originally for photoshoot ideas since for Christmas I have gotten a Canon (my new baby!) and was hoping to take very artsy pictures. I was thinking once I get ink in my printer I was going to print the pictures and stick them on my walls so my room doesn’t look like a boring white blob.

My tips to find pictures is like maybe Google, Tumblr, Pinterest, Instagram and maybe even your like pages on Facebook (or is that dead yet). Try to either put the pictures on your wall, a scrap book, a notebook, a bulletin board or even your locker and it will be very funky and cool and give you that giddly feeling!

So get creative with it!
