Hunger Games Fashion

Like myself, I assume many of you raced off to a cinema this past weekend for the highly anticipated Hunger Games. Whether you're team Peeta or team Gale  is this even an issue?we can all agree one of the coolest things about Panem is the Capitol's fashions. Crazy hair and tattooed faces are a norm in the Capitol. With her pink hair, bold make-up and avant-garde wardrobe, Effie Trinket is the poster girl for Capitol Couture.I know in reality experimental fashion like that may seem too 'out there'. One thing I love about fashion designers is that they never shy away of daring designs. I've rounded up my favorite pieces that I very well imagine Effie and Capitol citizens strutting on the Capitol streets!

Happy Friday! Hope you all had a great week and have an even greater weekend. Hopefully you'll consider watching The Hunger Games this weekend.

This week we've finally welcomed Spring! I've been in spring mode for some time, since the Louis Vuitton S/S 2012 show to be exact. This spring is all about soft pastels and ultra feminine pieces but a touch of bold and daring prints are also in the mix. I created an inspiration board for Spring fashion and trends. Click on it to see it in a larger size.
On the board I added soft, flowy dresses which I'm loving. I also included a lot of color. The floral dress in the middle is from Free People.

What are your favorite springtime trends?

Trend Alert: Stripes

One trend I always go to come springtime is stripes. They come back every spring season just like spring showers. Stripes instantly give your outfit a Parisian vibe. While wearing striped garments offer a laid back feel, they may be hard to pull off. Here are my tips on how to rock stripes with style!

Mani Monday: Spring Break Edition

Where I live this week is Spring Break for the students. While I'm not in school anymore, I couldn't help but imagine what I would do given the chance to travel for spring break. Obviously I would pick an area near a coastline. Maybe someplace exotic; Fiji, Greece, Bali, the possibilities are endless. This weeks mani is inspired by foreign waters and golden rays of sun.
Polish: Petites in Fiji, Wet n' Wild in The Gold & The Beautiful.
Hope you try this weeks mani or incorporate a teal shade!!

Tag: Nail Polish Obsession

If there is one thing you should know about me, it's that I love nail polish. Not kidding! Every time I go to stores that sell polishes, I'll end up spending up to a half hour looking through all the lovely nail colors! Since I'm clearly obsessed with nail polish I thought I would do the Nail Polish Obsession tag. I read about it on kayheartsmakeup16.

Mani Monday # 3

It may be early in March but where I live it's already starting to feel like spring! People are starting to have barbecues, pools are filled with water, green is taking over the scenery and bright colors are becoming essential in closets. Today's mani is inspired by the bright colors of spring.

Are you fond of bright nail colors for spring?

Sound Bite Saturday

Music is something that really inspires me in different ways. Whether it be for setting the mood at a party or helping me get dressed in the morning, here are some of my most frequently played songs right now.

Stronger by Kelly Clarkson
This song helps me get pumped and makes me feel invincible. Perfect for working out!

Drive By by Train
Anything by Train is good in my book.

Glad You Came by The Wanted
I've had this song stuck in my head ever since The Warblers covered it in Glee. Plus the boy band is British, need I say more!

Heartbreak Warfare by John Mayer
John Mayer's songs always get me. Love his song-writing and his talent on the guitar.

Somebody That I Used to Know by Gotye feat. Kimbra
Perfect after a break-up or when you need your feelings to be heard.
