New Years!!!

Sunday, December 29, 2013

3......2.....1!!!!!! HAPPY NEW YEARS!!!!!! (Que the kisses at midnight!!!! and for all who are single...bring on the drinks!) I probably say this every New Years but OH GAWD this year went by so fast! Life needs to slow down!!! I haven't accomplished all I need to! - well that and  I found I'm getting ridiculously lazy....that needs to stop for 2014! Now, if I was to go shopping on New Years day - which you know I'll probably be doing - this is something I'd wear. Something quick to change out of just in case I want to try something on and a small over-the-shoulder bag which is in my shopping purse essentials!

New Years Party Look!

New Years Party Look! by elizzabethhope featuring leather sandals

The look is for the party! If I had a fabulous party to attend! The shoes are Miu Miu and totally ah-mazing! I need them in my life like now! Of course I'd be wearing a red dress because red is my favorite color and I went for a statement necklace instead of big earrings (I'm just getting used to big statement earrings...I think they are starting to make a comeback!) 

Don't forget to check out my makeup look to go with these outfits!

Well I hope your year went better then mine...2013 was real unlucky for me but I'm hoping 2014 will be a whole lot better!

Tips of setting goals and keeping them!

Saturday, December 21, 2013

Setting goals is easier said then done! But here are my tips on achieving your goals! My goal right now is getting my hips down to 36 inches so I can go to New York to model! Crazy I know but i'm crazy so it makes sense :P

1. Goal board!! I recently made a goal board on my wall in my bedroom. Right next to my door so whenever I leave I can see it and get motivated!

2. Watch videos of what your goals are! My recent goal is becoming a model and losing 5 inches off my hips. I've been non-stop watching model videos of interviews from backstage of Cara Delevingne, Karlie Kloss, Joan Smalls, Jourdan Dunn, and so many more! I've got to see what they do backstage and it's really encouraging me to stay to my goals!!!!

3. Focus on what matters! What does this goal mean to you and why do you want to do it!

4. Set a timeline for this goal if needed. I'm trying to get my hips down to a 36 by the first week in April!

5. Do something everyday to achieve this goal! For me I've been eating heathy and working out! Trying to get to the gym every day for at least a 30 mins on the treadmill!

6. Visualize everyday what the outcome of this goal will be!!! For me it's becoming a top model and going to New York, London, Paris, and Milan for runway shows and to do amazing beautiful editorials for major magazines!

7. It's good to have long time goals but also have short time goals!! Don't forget to reward yourself for them! I'm not allowing myself to buy anything major till I start shedding the hip weight! When I get to a 38 I'm buying myself a new pair of heels...I'm obsessed with shoes...

8. TAKE ACTION! Go out and achieve your goals now!!! Make a plan and go!!! Gogogogogo!!! Woo!

So don't forget to be a goal digger ;) Do it!

Best wishes!!!!
Lots of Love,

Queen Bey Has Arrived

Sunday, December 15, 2013

If you've been trapped in a bubble for the past couple of days then you probably don't know that the Queens of all QUEENS Beyonce has released a surprise new album. 14 new crazy amazing songs along side 17 outrageous music videos! I can't believe Beyonce kept this a secret for so long. She took the music world to the next level. And this is why we call her Queen!

My thoughts when listening to each song...
1. Pretty Hurt - YESSS BEYONCE YES! She knows whats going on!
2. Hunted - FREAKING AMAZING. I have no words. The beat is awesome!
3. Drunk in Love (feat. Jay-Z) - New Favorite Song! On repeat! Love how she sings in this! Is that weird? She has a different tone to her I think during the chorus.
4. Blow - Has this 70s vibe to it. I like it! A lot!
5. No Angel - Cause your my angel Beyonce! Duh!
6. Partition - HEY MRS CARTER!!!! Sneeze on the beat and the beat got sicker!
7. Jealous - Who's this about???? Questions Beyyyyy! Questions!!!
8. Rocket - Once again just love this song!
9. Mine (feat. Drake) - OBSESSED ON REPEAT! Beyonce and Drake come on how can that not be amazing!!!!
10. XO - Sounds like it could be the beginning song for a movie or ending I guess but it's just amazing anyway!!! I LOVE IT!!!!
11. ***Flawless (feat. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichine) - PREACH *hands up emoji here*
12. Superpower (feat. Frank Ocean) - Once again such an awesome collab!!!
13. Heaven - Beautiful just beautiful!
14. Blue (feat. Blue Ivy) - Hold on to me!!! Just simply amazing!

        Just everything about this album is perfect!!! Don't get my started with the beats because just as Beyonce says she sneezed on them and they got sicker! So can I just be Beyonce now or am I gunna have to wait till my second life to be her?

ps- Some of these thoughts wont make sense if you don't go listen to the whole album!!! So what are you waiting for!!! Comment if you bought the album or about to go and get it! Tell me what you think!!!

Lots of Love,

Preppy Meets Boho!

Saturday, December 14, 2013

I've always said I have a different look towards fashion. One day I'm wicked preppy (mostly during the spring time) and other times I'm so boho chic (Summer time is that time!) BUT there's always that confusion part during the fall/winter time where I can't decided whether to go all preppy or boho! This is one of those days. I have a little bit of both!

-H&M Jacket
-Forever 21 Sweater
-Urban Outfitter Jeans
-Dolce Vita Boots
-Ralph Lauren 'Monogramed' Hat
-Francesca's Collection Necklace

Nail Polish
-'OPI' Eiffel For This Color

I hope you like it! Tell me what you think below!

It's Sweater Weather Time!!

Friday, November 15, 2013

As I sit here listening to Justin Bieber's newest album...(wait, what? I don't even like Justin Bieber but I do love music! Ya...don't really know why I'm listening to this...judge me...) Anyway! I was thinking - wow...I wear a lot of sweaters in the fall/winter time. It's most defiantly a staple piece in my wardrobe. I have a ton of colors but they all seem to look the same! With the exception of cardigans of course! Although they all look the same too! Ok, without further ado here are my "Sweater Weather" favorites corduroy of Pinterest to help out people who don't know what to do with their many of me...

October Favorites 2013!

Thursday, November 7, 2013

Wow! Can you believe October is over and we are in November! Only two more months till 2014! And they told us the world was going to end in 2012! Psh! Look how far we've come! October was just as stressful as September...well...added on stress...but I'm hoping to make these last two months the best of 2013! I know I haven't been blogging or making videos as often as before but I'm trying my best to fix that! Especially during the new school year!

Here's my latest video of my favorites throughout October!

What are you favorites from October?! Let me know in the comments!

DIY Halloween Costumes! Pinata and Kate Middleton!

Friday, November 1, 2013

Oh Halloween, my favorite time of the year! The one day that everyone can get dressed up and not be judged on the way they look. Unless you want to dress up as up like a hooker cat girl or a super many super heros...and minions!! But the minions where funny because theirs so many of them already!!! You may or may not get a couple of looks CATION!
                 For the first night of Halloween (a.k.a. the dance) I was a pinata! I found it on Pinterest last year and I was dying to try it out. I didn't know what exactly to be so I choose this. So I went to the party store, got some streamers, went to Forever 21 to buy a tank top and shorts and BAM! -well we are almost there to the pinata part- 
                 First, you need some fabric glue from the store and scissors to fringe out the streamers to get that pinata look!! I took strips, cut them - glued them on, one by one and soon enough I had a pinata outfit! It only took from 7:30pm to 12am to finish! But I also got distracted by people and what not...dorm life *insert peace signs here*. Here's the finish look! I added a "tail" with this half tutu I found. Also a party hat and put streamers on it! 

        For my Halloween Night look I was the Kate Middleton! Accent, baby, and all!!!! I loved it! Really easy to do as well. I took Kate's iconic blue dress, put some pearls on, carried baby George around with me all night complaining that William left me alone all night. It was pretty funny I do have to say. Oh, and don't forget the crown! 

So whether your getting "hit on" as a pinata or keeping it calm and carrying on as Kate Middleton never forget to keep your imagination open to new ideas. Yes, classics are classic but this is the new age! Get creative and go out on a lim to do something different! I'm thinking for Saturday night I'm going to be Audrey Hepburn in the rain scene of Breakfast at Tiffany's! Yelling CAT!! Where are you cat! all night!

What were you for Halloween this year?! Leave me comments below! I want to hear your ideas!!!

Change Can Be Good!

Friday, October 18, 2013

Do you ever feel like you need to start over and revaluate your life. I must do this at least 3 times a year! All around the same time too! About this time, around my birthday and right before school starts. I like change! Change is good at times when it comes to oneself! (Changing places and friends, ect. is a whole different thing!) I like changing up my hair color, my clothes, and even my attitude! I guess it may come with the seasons and being a fashion design major fashion is always changing and so am I.

Right now for example...

I want my hair to look like this...


Pretty much both mixed together! 

My style to look like this...

and I need my attitude to be like this...


On top of that...I'm opening my Facebook again!!! I want to do a post a day like...shoe of the day or quotes of the day. Something that's cute like that! Send me ideas!!! FACEBOOK LIKE HERE!
I also have a TWITTER and YOUTUBE so check out the links by clicking on the capital social medias!

Meet Lilly Rose!

Friday, October 11, 2013

Hello everyone! Long time no post I know...I've been so busy with school, family, and now my new puppy!!!! Everyone! Meet Lilly Rose! She's a 4 month year old King Charles Cavalier Spaniel. We brought her home the end of the August and of course I was heading off to school so I spent every waking moment with her possible! She's the best! I couldn't of asked for a better puppy! She's loving, loyal, and everything I wanted and more! It was great for my family to get this puppy when we did as well. My Great Uncle Pete pasted away, my Grampie was having knee surgery, and I was leaving for school. Having Lilly around has created a certain calming feel, sometimes stressful, around the house. Which is good for my family.
        She's actually sitting with me right now asleep while I post this blog post. She's so adorable and I'm so happy I get to share her with you today!!


 ^^^^^This picture got 72 Likes on Instagram you should check it out! @QueenLillyRose

She's such a loving puppy! I love her so much! It's almost been about 8 years since we've had a puppy in the house and it couldn't feel better!

Marc Jacobs Beauty and Brandy Melville Haul!

Tuesday, September 3, 2013

You know the saying "Shopping is my Cardio." Well I live true to this quote...
Some say I'm a shopaholic but let's face it I'm just helping out the economy!
I went into the city to go shopping for back to school with my little cousin Elise. We didn't do much just went into Brandy and Sephora!
First off...Marc Jacobs + Makeup = WEAKNESS!!!!
Marc Jacobs is one of my favorite designers and well...I'm pretty much obsessed with makeup. I had to at least buy one thing! So I bought a lipgloss because it would be something I used often but will have for a while! I love the color! The long lasting appeal is great! Also it's Marcy Marc...enough said.
At Brandy Melville I've been trying to hunt down a couple of things. One of which I found!! They are just basic short sleeved shirts that are cropped. White, Black and Navy. Now I need to sew myself a few pairs of high waisted shorts and pants...

Here's the video of the Haul!!! Check it out! Enjoy! If you want a crop top lookbook let me know in the comments!!!
