What To Wear Wednesdays: PLL Steez

As promised in last week’s post… we have created a PLL inspired DIY fashion tutorial over at KT+E Unplugged. Who else was lusting over Aria’s studded hoodie from the winter premier?? I know I was. I wanted to see it hanging in my closet STAT so I took it upon myself to make it happen. I gathered the needed supplies and got to work. Here’s how it turned out…

Here’s what you’ll need:

+ a hoodieany hoodie will do. I went with basic black while Fashionlushxx gravitated toward gray [we got ours at H&Mwhat’s new?]

+ studs: We went with a 1/2 inch conical stud which we ordered ours from Studs & Spikes.com

+ a flat-head screw driver: this will help you to pinch down the prongs on each stud

We chose to stud along the pockets and the rim of the hood… but you can do whatever tickles your fancy. It’s your project so have fun with it!

Head on over to KT+E Unplugged to watch the tutorial… and while you’re there DON”T forget to subscribe!!

Got a Secret… Can you keep it??

Pretty Little Liars A

Shhh… I’m spilling my secrets. I’m a huge fan of Pretty Little Liars and I ain’t afraid to shout it from the rooftops. It’s one of my fave guilty pleasures. Just when I think I’ve got it all figured out the A team throws us another curve ball. I’m not gona lie… I’ve always been a little bit creeped out by Toby. There’s just something about him that has always rubbed me the wrong way and now we know why. Rumor has it that tonight Spencer will also find out the truth about Toby! It should be a pretty juicy episode and I seriously can’t wait! Speaking of PLLKT+E Unplugged will be bringing you a PLL inspired tutorial so stay tuned b!tches.  A

Must Have Mondays: Let’s Talk About Brows Baby!!

Some might say that I’m a bit brow-obsessed… and they would be right. I think if more people knew what a properly shaped brow could do for their entire look they would hop on board the brow wagon as well. Let me start by saying how brows absolutely frame your face and complete your look. You may be rocking the hottest outfit, bombshell hair, and killer makeup… BUT… if your brows aren’t done it will look like something’s missing! I honestly don’t even go to the gym without filling in my brows! Here are a few helpful hints…
123 brows
Everyone has a natural shape to their brows. You may have a high arch [think Megan Fox], a rounded arch [think Jennifer Aniston], or no arch [think Selena Gomez]. You may prefer a more modest brow or a big, bold, beautiful brow. Work with what God gave you, as well as your personal preference. If you are new to the brow scene I recommend going to a professional. They will be able to shape your brow in the most appropriate and flattering shape for your face {got a Benefit Brow Bar near by?? They are my personal fave!!} If you choose to brave it on your own, please follow these simple rules of thumb…

Brows 101
1) Take a pencil and hold it vertically along the side of your nose. Where the pencil and your eyebrow meet is where the brow should start.
2) Again, take the pencil and look straight ahead. Line the pencil up with your pupil. Where the pencil ends should be the highest point of your arch.
3) Take the pencil one last time and hold the pencil from the side of your nostril to the outer corner of your eye so that it extends to the eyebrow region. This should be where your brow ends.

My absolute fave product for filling in my brows is Benefit’s Brows a-go-go kit. It has anything and everything you could ever need to shape and accentuate your brows. It contains a light and dark color of the brow zings powder, brow zings wax, eye bright & brow highlighter, mini tweezers, an angled brush, and smokin’ black eyeliner. Whether you’re a brow newbie or a seasoned pro… this kit is the perfect fit. As you now know, the fab Fashionlushxx and I have joined forces to bring you KT+E Unplugged.
