London Day 1 & 2

On June 13th, my grandma and I took an overnight flight to London, England! Having felt anxious for the 7 hour flight, we made it around 6 am London time and as soon as I got there, I felt refreshed. The airport even had cute coffee shops that I would see in vlogs. FYI they offered me a drink on the flight, I am 18 so it is considered legal in England, but I opted for tea.

After an insane drive and a 2 hour nap, we had tea planned at the restaurant in our hotel. To my surprise, it was one of those fancy hotels, because I am so used to Holiday Inns that I never knew what it was like to stay at a very fancy hotel. This hotel is thanks to the tour company that we used, Tauck, and they treated us like royalty.

It was rather weird being an American and viewing England’s very proper attitude and that such being a customer they literally treated like I was the Queen, only I can wish. The food is so different that I ate about 3 cucumber and cream cheese sandwich slices, I am at least trying. I got the Hibiscus Tea which was not too strong or bitter for my liking so I quite enjoyed it. I especially loved the centerpieces, especially the flowers and I have also learned that I am not a big fan of jelly. The dress I wore to tea if from Free People.

Our hotel was in the Marble Arch neighborhood so we decided to find it and we did not realize how close we were to Hyde Park! So our effort to stay awake was to walk walk around the city so we, I mean I, came with the idea to go to Madame Tussaud’s . I had to see the Zalfie wax figures of course! I texted my mom the picture and she actually thought that I had met them, sadly I did not ūüė¶ .

We headed back for the hotel so my grandma fell asleep while I watched the people from out hotel window. Other than having a cereal bar for dinner, I really enjoyed the first night in London because it was so magical to me.

DAY 2

The second day started bright and early because we had to catch a bus to head to Harry Potter Studios of course! I am a huge Harry Potter fan and a movie fan so going there was a complete dream! I might move to England to work for a film company, but that is just an idea for now.

Here are the few of many photos I took and I highly suggest going even if you are not a Harry Potter fan, it was so cool to see how everything was created. I even rode a broom in the green screen room which I am not to sure if I am allowed to upload but if I am, it will possibly be up on a vlog. Ravenclaw for life!

After we left, we took a walk through Hyde Park and towards Harrods, legit the biggest place I have ever seen. Instead of buying anything, we ended having the most delicious ice cream in the cutest shop that gave me an idea to having my own ice cream shop.

Just look how yummy the ice cream looks! I do not really count my steps, but in total we walked 7 miles, gotta keep up my summer bod!

Review: One Direction Makeup*

They are known all over the world for being the popular X Factor boyband One Direction! They have sold millions of records, their own perfume, toothbrushes and now their own makeup collection. Having million girls loving these boys, they came together and brought something out that can fit the unique girls who are in love with the British/Irish band! Every girl has her own personality so reflect out through each set. Find your own way to show everyone who you are by experimenting with each different set! Make sure you check out the “Take Me Home” and “Midnight Memories” set and see how you can stand out of the crowd. The collection have received was called “Up All Night”, a very bright, colorful, party makeup.

The makeup was absolutely fun to play with including a few messy mishaps all over my hands which will be included in a video. As you can see in the picture below, there are a lot of bright colors and a small little lookbook on how to put the eyeshadow on.

I LOVE this mascara, I have been wearing it ever since it came in the mail and I even brought it to dance camp. Even my mom loves to wear it! It is much better than the drugstore types. Unlike the drugstore mascaras, they do not clump on your lashes and when I put them on my bottom lashes, they don’t stand out so much.

I love these colors! The blue eye shadows are bright and go on rather smoothly. The sparkles are pretty but make sure you put on a few layers of it or it won’t be noticed. I used the skin color to outline my eyebrow bone and the light blue to outline my eye and on the corner of my eyelid. I added the sparkle shadow also on the corner and I thought it was a fun look.

I swear every time I test out the eyeliner on my skin, it is hard to take off! It is a good type of eyeliner that will stay on all day and night for a dark look. I love putting on eyeliner on my bottom lashes instead of my top and maybe you can try that some time!
IMG_3171
This pastel pink lipstick, by the name “I Should Have Kissed You”, is not just great for a night look. Put it on during the day to a edgier outfit to make it more girly or play it up with a dress. This lipstick makes me feel like a total girly girl and it is just so much fun to wear!
IMG_3172
Who doesn’t want a little hot pink lipstain? Personally, I can not wear this lip product as my skin is a color that makes it look weird on me. If you don’t want the whole va va voom factor on, which includes sparkles, I insist putting on “I Should Have Kissed You” first and applying this second. Also the cool thing is that this lipstain glows underneath UV lights!
IMG_3173
I swear this color is so much fun! “Na Na Na” is a medium with a few sparkles that can give off a fun look without going too crazy! I swear you can wear this color any time of the year and it will perfectly work! This my “back to school” nail polish must have!
IMG_3174
Who doesn’t have to draw on their body? If you want to spice up your look, try out the stencils which include so many fun designs. In my experience with these, I suggest using the blue eyeshadows instead of the eyeliner which I used. The big mistake I did was use the eyeliner and that kind of got messy! So try something that doesn’t get all over the place!

Style Idol: Zoella

It seems like I have been updating a lot within the last few weeks so that is good! I will try to have an outfit post at least twice a month and I have a huge list of posts that I will write out and schedule when I have nothing to do. Currently I am writing this while watching Zoella’s June Vlogs which I am very excited about! Zoe known as Zoella on YouTube is one of the first few YouTubers that I have been watching for the past year that my friend got me into. Zoe is part of the British YouTubers and I literally would love to look/be here and I absolutely envy her style! I wish I could be able to pull off and put outfits like hers and I don’t know I just think she is awesome! Here are a few of my favorite outfits of hers!

IOW3

Her fashion is girly and very posh and quirky and I just love it! I also have the same fawn necklace as her which I wear pretty much everyday! Her blog and her pictures make me want to visit England more and adore the quaint towns within the country.

To Dress Like Zoe:
Zoe’s outfits are very fun and whimsical, find similar fashion at her favorite shops like Zara, TopShop, Primark, Miss Selfridge, and American Apparel.

Zoe leans more into the flirty skirts, tops with collars and items that are also edgy. Mix and matching is what she likes to do and just finding one piece can make so many different outfits. She always has fun with her clothing and you should too.

Polyvore-mas 12/1-12/6

I’ve been obsessed with vlogmas, I will most likely be participating in it next December, and I have thought of making an outfit each day. I promise to my sets that are pretty. I have made more than one set a day.
y
I’ve been leaning into dark colors and dresses so I went for something more casual and fun.
l(9)
Just a casual day walking around the city.
l(12)
A cute, fancy skirt and shoes that it is balanced out with the simple gray sweater.
l(13)
My favorite outfit out of all of them, its dressy and casual at the same time.
l
A nice outfit to wear on Christmas morning with hipster glasses. It would be fun to wear opening presents, watching Elf, and sitting by the fire, drinking hot chocolate ready a good book. Maybe not all at the same time.
l(1) l(2)
A night out in town, probably to walk around and look at the Christmas lights.
l(3)
I just love the plaid skirt.
