DIY Beaded Comb + How to Style It

I made about five of these beaded combs for the costumes I designed in the Fall Dance Concert last semester, and they were so fun to make! I decided to do a little tutorial for you guys because I was going to make one for myself anyways and I thought it might be helpful to share how I make it! It's actually a very simple process, and it doesn't require many materials at all! I hope you enjoy learning how to make this gorgeous hair accessory, and let me know how you guys style it if you try it out! Have a super fabulous day!!

Planning Tips + School Vlog

I would be a total mess without my planner... I have a very specific structure I follow when planning that I've come up with other the years of being in school, and it has no doubt helped me accomplish a great amount of goals in a timely manner! Since everyone is still in the mood for getting into a new routine of planning and organizing, I decided to share some of my tips and show how I plan my day! I also wanted to take you guys along with me while I went to class, so hopefully you'll enjoy a little sneak peek of what I do as a college student. Anyways, I'm always open to learning new planning and organization techniques, so feel free to let me know what you guys do to plan your day! Have a super productive and fabulous day!!

OOTD Boho Inspired Beach Look

I haven't actually really gone clothing shopping in a long time, so I've had to get creative with my outfit choices and work with what I already have. I've also been deep cleaning my room, so luckily I've been finding super cute shirts and accessories that I totally forgot about because they may or may not have been buried under my mountain of craft supplies... oops... But moving on, I found this ADORABLE printed scarf with tassels on it, and I decided at that moment that I absolutely MUST create an outfit using this scarf before the heat gets unbearable. I paired it with this loose open shoulder top and high waisted jeans, along with some fun bracelets and rings. How would you guys style the scarf? I'm sure it could fit into many different styles of fashion so I'm curious to know what you guys would do with it! Anyways, have a super fabulous, positive, and productive day!

OOTD Striped Ruffle Dress

One of my goals for 2017 is to feature more of the clothes that I make on my blog and on my YouTube channel. I feel like sometimes I get so caught up in making fun videos that I forget to show you guys what I've been working on and working towards as far as my career goes. And since I am getting deeper into my college education, I believe that featuring my growth and skills would be beneficial to the future of my career as well as to those of you who want to go into similar industries. Anyways, for this short video, I wanted to show this dress that I made for my birthday! I made it in one night because my birthday was the next day, and I ended up using almost every single scrap I had left of that fabric (which is why the stripes don't match up in the bodice... oh well). I hope you guys enjoy seeing a peek of what I've been working on, and there is plenty more where that came from so be sure to check back soon! Have a super fabulous day!
