MAC Warm Neutral Palette Fall Makeup Tutorial

Wednesday, September 2, 2015

Ohemgeeee guys!!! Long time no talk! It's been while. I know. I've been back and fourth about so many things for the past summer. Like changing my url again to changing up the content on my blog/youtube channel. It drove me crazy for so long but I've finally decided to just go with it! Just relax! Do what I want! That is why I started this blog so many years ago!!! Just to do what I love and have fun!! I decided to go back to what I love to do. Make videos and blog about my favorite fashion trends and outfits. I've missed just making videos of what I love and not having pressure to put out stuff that people want to see. Of course, I will always take request because I love hearing from you dolls! But there are things that I love to do that I will be doing more!!

So! I just put up a new makeup tutorial! I have a new set up and wish I thought of this sooner!!! (and of course I'm going back to school next week but I'm hopefully going to be filming there too! I just need to see how everything is set up.)

My new favorite palette is the MAC Warm Neutral Palette. I bought it a few months ago and totally fell in love! I bought the warm palette because of my skin tone. I thought it would bring out the "tan" but not so tan skin. (Thank god for self tanner because I got no sun this summer! But that is also okay! I may talk more about that later) Check out my new look for fall using this palette.

Lots of Love,

Stay Positive. Keep Going.

Staying healthy and fit has always been a lifestyle choice for me. I always try to stay fit and eat clean but it doesn't always happen. Now that I'm 21 years old I realize how difficult it is to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I'm not that 17 year old who played volleyball and tennis and worked out on top of that. I now know how America is so overweight! Working a 9-5 job 5 days a week and a night job on Saturdays is tough! I try to eat clean but sometimes that one person in the office brings chocolate peanut butter fudge brownies and tell yourself not to eat them! Sometime you have to indulge even if it's half a brownie instead of a full block!!

Keeping weight off as an adult is tough when your working all the time and having a life. When I'm at school I'm completely focused! I go to the gym practically everyday, eat healthier, and stay motivated. But for some reason when I try to do this at home it's harder. Probably because of my nana's cooking...but in my defense I've been doing really good!! I workout even if it's at 10 o'clock at night! I take the stairs walking to my internship everyday! But sometimes cookies come to play...mostly gluten free options but still...I try every day to keep up with everything. I wish I had more time to spend on working at my best self but sometimes you just have to make due with what you got.

So I guess what I'm trying to say is yes it's hard to workout and stay healthy. It's a lifestyle change! It will be worth the wait! You have to be patient! That coming from the girl who can't wait for anything!!! Believe me when I say when your time comes and you know you want a lifestyle change good things will happen. Keep going! You can do it!!! Stay Positive!

Lots of Love,

It All Started With A Pair Of Heels...

Friday, July 3, 2015

Well, it's about that time...the time being the first ever blog post I posted on the internet. Today, July 3rd marks the first day I posted my first blog. I know I've changed names about 10 million times and I know I don't have the most following ever but I'm proud to call myself a blogger. I wish I was dedicated to it more and I'm working on it. I really am! Sometimes I get discouraged because I've been blogging for 5 years and don't have much of a following but then I remember why I started. I wanted to give girls (and guys if there are some reading) my advice on life! From beauty to fashion to  fitness to love and more!
Some much good has come out of this blog even if it hasn't gone to far! It's been through the rough times, the good times, the sad times, and the happy. But I'm not the awkward 16 year old you use to know! Ok, I'm still awkward...some things never change. But I have grown up a lot! You've seen my awkward high school years, prom, pageants, graduation, first days of college, hair colors (brown to blonde!, see me throw the years saying how much I want to do acting and modeling and I'm finally achieving my dreams! If there's one thing that hasn't changed are my dreams. I know I've always wanted to be an actress/model/fashion designer and one day that is exactly what I'll be. All you need to do is stay focused. Sometimes little things get in the way but you just need to brush them off and remember that Rome wasn't built in a day (is that how the saying goes haha).
I hope when you read my blog that you see a friend, someone you've known for years and keep up with through the blog. New things are to come always. I hope you follow along :) I know I'm not perfect but I'm having fun! And that's all that matters.

Couture : The Process

Thursday, May 14, 2015

I love draping! Pattern making isn't my favorite thing to do...but draping I love! This is one, about 5 yards, piece of fabric (other then the shoulder pieces which are two pieces of fabric). I love creating nothing into something! For school we have to make a 1920's couture dress and this is something like I sketched that I wanted to do. It flows more on the bottom but because I didn't have enough fabric and it's the wrong length of fabric I had to work with what I had. The dress is probably going to be white with white lace covering it. I'm going to add beads and rhinestones to it as well to add some sparkle, of course! I can't wait to make it and see how it looks in the end! It's going to take a while to do but it will be work it in the end. I will keep you in touch with my couture adventures and more! But first here are the draping pictures and my illustrations at the end of this post. 

Tell me what you think in the comments!

The middle dress is the one I'm going to make! 

Menswear Project

Well it's finally done! My menswear jacket is complete and I couldn't be happier. For this project we had to make an outfit for well...for men. It could be inspired by anything, finally no requirements! What a process! I have never made anything for men before but I always thought I would want to expand my market to menswear and womenswear. I really wanted to make this jacket perfect too because my previous things were just okay. Nothing special but nothing amazing. I looked at menswear clothing in stores to see how they put everything together, went and bought a pair of pants only to deconstruct them and take them apart, and piece by piece everything started to fall into place. I really love how it came out and I've been getting nothing but great feedback from everyone which makes me happy to actually believe in myself for once.

  The jacket is a modern take on a trench coat. The hood is attachable so if you want to you could take it off and just have a high collar or keep it on. I lined it with camo lining and added a belt to it. I also made jeans to go with them but not classic jeans. More of a chino jean. Chino style but in denim fabric. 

Let me know what you think of the jacket! I can't wait to see it in the fashion show!

New Things To Come!

Hello Everyone! It's me, Lizz, again! Of course!

You may have noticed! My name changed again...I forgot my username for this account in January (long story) and I just remember it now (in May)! But I started another blog because I didn't want to stop blogging so I made another account! But now that I'm back on my old one the names switched again! I swear (jk I'm crossing my fingers lol) this will hopefully be the last time I ever change this name! The only other time would be to to get a URL without on it.

I'm also starting up my YouTube channel again! I miss making videos! I'm trying to do this thing where I do things I liked to do in the past and new things in the future. One of which was making YouTube videos! I love being in front of the camera! Telling you my tricks and tips on beauty and fashion! I'm excited! Are you?! Let me now any video requests in the comments!!!

So I hope you still stick with me!!! It may be new names every few months but it's still the same me!!! Thank you for everyone who has stuck around with me since the beginning!!! It's been a long trip!

Much Love.

How To Keep Your Skin and Hair Beautiful During Winter!

Wednesday, January 28, 2015

Since it is snowing right now and the air is dry I thought I'd give you my secret tips to keeping healthy glowing skin and hair. I should really follow this more myself but I have a few tricks and tips to keeping your skin and hair moisturized and not dry.


My number 1 top secret is coconut oil! Coconut oil is GOD. Everything about it is amazing. I use an organic coconut oil so there's nothing bad about it. Before I go to bed after I wash my face I use CO on my face, on my scalp (not a lot just a thin layer), always make sure you get your neck, elbows, knees, legs after I take a shower! Everywhere! I use the one from Cunningham Farms. It keeps everything set for the winter time!

For my curly, frizzy hair conditioning it is must! I deep condition my hair 2 twice a week. This might mean I have to wake up an extra half hour earlier to do so. Especially since it's cold and I air dry my hair it takes longer to dry. Sometimes I will use the defuser on my hair dryer to make it at least half dry so I don't get sick. But always conditioning your hair will help keep the moisture in and dryness OUT! 


My favorite kind lotions always come from The Body Shop! I've been using them for years and I love them. I usually put lotion on before I go to bed and wake up feeling great! I always carry small handbag lotions from Bath and Body Works just in case! 

One of my favorite new products that I've been using a lot this winter is the Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream. I'm sure everyone can agree when I say nails are the hardest to maintain. I always feel like my nail cuticles are peeling but not with this! I put it on every morning after I finish my makeup. I've notice a big difference since! 


LIPS LIPS LIPS!!!!!! I can't explain how important keeping your lips moisturized!!!! I keep legit 2 lip glosses, chapsticks, sugar lip scrubs in my purse or jacket at all times during winter! There's nothing worse then talking to someone with chapped lips. I feel like that's all you focus on. DO NOT lick your lips while outside! You don't want Kylie lips that are chapped... My favorites are Vaseline lip therapy (it's tiny and will fit anywhere!), Fresh Sugar Lips (Amazing! But very expensive...I got one last year or the year before for my b-day gift from Sephora! Still have it! A little goes a long way!), Baby Lips by Maybelline, EOS lip balm (if you feel like your lip sphere is dry take a plastic knife or knife and shave off around it. It should make it soft again.), and Burt's Bees!  

Keeping your skin healthy and glowy is essential during winter. It's hard to keep up because as humans we get lazy but true not to be lazy this winter! You are going to thank yourself in the end!

Let me know what your favorite products are for winter time! I'm always up for trying new ones!!!

Lots of Love,

Being Single As Told By Carrie Bradshaw.

Wednesday, January 21, 2015

       I've watched Sex and the City 1 and a half (rewatching every season again) times by now. By watching it I've learned a thing or two about relationships. Some are spot on and some aren't. But what Carrie explains about friendship and being single is always true. Being single on Valentines Day doesn't always have to be awful! Take it from Carrie Bradshaw. She knows whats up! Here are a few of my favorite quotes by Miss Bradshaw to think about this Valentines Day!!!

Our best friends are actually our soul mates. Friends are forever! Boyfriends are whatever!



Say it with her!!!! 


Having the courage to be single makes you stronger than you think!

This one's my favorite. I'll have to remember this. It may come in handy one day. 

This quote says it all! Go and buy the shoes! 

Even Mr. Big puts his input in! 


Whether you agree with Carrie or not she's absolutely true. Your best friends are your soul mates, you can be fabulous and single too, and don't think...always buy the shoes! 

Happy Galentines Day!
Lots of Love,

Looking back at 2014!!

Friday, January 2, 2015

Another day, another year. 2015 will be a good year. This year has come and gone so fast! I don't even know where to start! One of my New Years Resolution is to blog more! Obvi! I want to start taking more outfit of the days and creating a new style for myself. (classic...) But before I start with that...the best moments of 2014! No negative moment! Like the song Let It Go states...The past is in the past!!! LETITGO!!!

1. The #1 BEST MOMENT OF 2014 was being an extra for the TV show Odyssey premiering on April 5th! I'm crossing my fingers that my scene is in the TV show!!! I've been wanting to tell you this since April of this year! 2 days shooting and it was the best time ever! It made me realize how much I want to act and really try to make a name for myself! I was also in The Greens Are Gone an indies film as an extra as well! I'll keep you updated on both!

2. I successfully made my non-textiles outfit! Made of duck tape, bread tabs spray painted black, and mylar balloons. 

3. Playing with Lilly! Obvi! She's the best!

4. Even though I didn't go through and study abroad in London I'm happy I went and actually tried. I know a lot of people who didn't go because they thought something was going to happen to them or their family, ect. Although I feel like I've learned so much more about myself then actually staying abroad. I'm happy with my decision and at least I got to visit the Queen and take a telephone booth picture! Now I can cross that off my bucket list! 

5. I got to see Iggy Azalea in concert! She's so fancy! And amazing! Although I wish she stayed on stage longer!! But still very cool to see her live!

6.  Dying my hair blonde was a really big part of 2014! I finally went practically full on blonde!!! I love it!!! I dyed it ombre because of London but I'm dying it back in January again! Can't wait! 

7. I got to meet Johnny Cupcakes! That was a pretty big deal!!! I was really excited about that one!!! He's so inspiring and really fun!! I've been a fan since forever!!!

8. I turned 20 years old! I'm no longer a teen but always one by heart. Age is but a number ;) 
Sassy Pug!

And other things that happened...
-I watched almost every season of Beverly Hills 90210 and LOVED every minute of it until Amazon took it down.......
-I got a new job that I love so much and the people at my job are tots awesome!!!!
-I missed my friends lots while they were away abroad! 
-I reached over 3,500 views on one of my videos!!! Woop Woop! Subscribe here! More videos to come!!!! 
-I reached over 130k views on my blog! Really big deal! So AMAZING!!! 

This year has been filled with happiness, tears, heartbreaks, and new loves. But the past is the past and looking back I didn't do as much as I wanted to. It's almost 2015...time to step it up...they didn't make the term YOLO for nothing! 

Lots of Love,
