Five Starry Outfits To Brighten Up Your Wardrobe!

Hi everyone!

This week, I decided to put together a couple of outfits featuring one of my favorite things; Stars! I absolutely LOVE stars; I love how they brighten up the night sky, I love how unique each star is and I love the fact that although during the dayΒ some of them Β can’t be seen, they are always still up there in the sky waiting for their time to shine again. Oh and I also love that they can just instantly add in a touch of glamour (and stardust) into any ordinary outfit and instantly brighten it up!

Anyway, I wanted to combine my love of stars and fashion together and this post is the final result! I really hope that you like ’em!

Outfit 1- A Celestial Dream

This was the outfit that originally served the purpose as my inspiration for this post. If I’m completely honest, it almost might be my favourite haha.. I fell in love with the pattern of the sweater and I just knew that I had to pair it up with a pink skirt and a beret! (I also simply ADORE that mini camera as well,don’t you?)

For some reason whenever I find myself putting together outfits, I also dream up people whose personalities are sort of connected to outfit as well. So, for this outfit, I thought that its personality would be someone who loves to daydream and take photographs of everything that she finds extraordinary in an ordinary cityΒ and turn it in to something just a little bit magical.

Outfit 2- The Star Spangled Superstar

For this outfit, I wanted to go really casual but also unique and bold, and what’s more bold and unique than a coconut purse, glittery sneakers and fun patterned leggings??

I toned down the star theme a bit with only a white shirt with a row of silver stars around the neckline and a matching celestial bracelet. I think the effect is bit more subtle but still really fun! (and quite effective!)

(Outfit Persona- A fun and quirky teen who walks with confidence and has an immense love for glitter and fruit loops!) πŸ˜‚πŸ’—

Outfit 3- A Starry Night

This look is a bit more toned down in terms of the colour scheme, but I still think its perfect for anyone who is a bit more glamourous and still wants to incorporate this fun theme into an everyday look!

I stuck to grey, black, white and silver for this one and I’m actually really pleased with how it turned out! I absolutely ADORE the shoes (as always haha..) and I thought that adding in the pink frames were a bit of a unique touch.

The person I had in mind while putting this one together is someone who is classy, coordinated and confident but also a tiny bit rebellious and loves to ice-skate, for some reason? I just think that the jacket kind of brings out that different side? Because people can’t really be fit into specific genres, there’s so much more to them than a label after all!

Outfit 4- Starring : Candy With a Sprinkle of Stars

I just HAD to include in an outfit with a dress and as soon as I saw this one, I loved it! The star print isn’t too loud but it isn’t exactly subtle either and I wanted to emphasize that, but also add in a couple of sweet little touches like the golden starry socks that are going to tucked into the boots! (They just remind me of Harry Potter, for some reason so I just had to include ’em!)

I also adore the colourful umbrella that also just adds to the sweet and pastel theme that this outfit brings out!

For some reason when I think about this outfit, I always imagine the person wearing it to be dancing around a cobblestoned street when it is raining with a big smile, while the others are all shut up inside their houses mourning about the gloom.

After all life isn’t always perfect and embracing that fact is the first step to being truly happy and content!

Outfit 5- A Burst Of Stardust

As always, I love to save my most unique outfit for last, and this time definitely isn’t an exception. I found these gorgeous jeans and I paired them up with a cashmere sweater patterned with stars! I was actually quite surprised at the contrast and how much I liked it!

To tie in the outfit together, I added in some silver wedge sneakers, a red and black wristlet and some silver star earrings! This outfit just screams STARS, so its definitely not subtle but I still think that although it’s a bit more bold, you can definitely dress it up or down.

What did you think of this post and my outfits? Did you have a favourite? Oh, and would you wear any of these outfits, if you got the chance? If so, which one and why? I’m quite curious! Let me know in the comments down below!

Have Chapped Lips? Try THIS! | My FAVORITE DIY Lip Scrub Recipe.

Hi everyone!

Today I’m finally going to be sharing my go-to DIY lip scrub recipe. If you are anything like me and you have chapped lips all.the.time then this recipe is definitely for you! I discovered this recipe quite a while ago and I altered it lil’ bit to make it more amazing and I really hope that you all like it!

Oh, and you know the best part about this recipe? It can be done made in under three minutes and it’s really really easy too!

  • Sugar- 1 tablespoon
  • Coconut oil-1 teaspoon (you could also substitute this with olive oil or even honey)
  • Vanilla Essence or Extract.
  • Pink or Red food colouring (optional)
  • A Container

  • Mix together the oil and sugar.

  • Then add in vanilla extract (or any other flavoring of your choice) along with a couple of drops of food coloring. (For a little pop of colour or tint after using the lip scrub!)
  • Mix it all together, pop it into a container and then you are done!

If you want to, you can decorate your container as well,I used a bit of washi tape and a couple of letter stickers to make mine a bit more unique and fun!

I absolutely adore this lip scrub and I hope that you do too! It was honestly a life-saver because at some point my lips had gotten so chapped that I could barely even smile without suppressing a grimace of pain. It was awful.

I’d recommend using this with a toothbrush (I know it sounds weird but, hey, it works!) and sort of using it to brush your lips? (With the lip scrub, of course!) It’s actually one of the most effective ways to use it as well haha..you could use your fingers too,of course, but this was just the easiest and the quickest way to do it!

Oh,and you can always feel free to experiment with new flavors and combinations! I made Nutella lip balm a while ago and I can definitely customize this recipe to make a Nutella lip scrub too! You can be as wild and creative as you’d like!

Okay, now I’m dying to know: if you could make a lip scrub or a lip balm in any flavor or combination (go as crazy as you’d like), what would it be?? I think I would probably make something that smells like chocolate but looks like a rainbow. (Rainbow chocolate? Hmmm)

Oh, and do you have chapped lips too? If so,how do you deal with it? I’d love to know!
