The best earrings for your face shape

Image
Hello everyone! Knowing your face shape can be helpful when choosing your hairstyle, makeup, eyebrow shape, glasses and even earring style. A long time ago, I shared a quiz to help you determine which  face shape  you have. In previous posts, I talked about  the best eyebrows for your face shape   and  the best sunglasses for your face shape . Today, I want to share some tips on how to choose the  best earring  that will flatter and define your features.

Hello everyone! Lately, I've been reevaluating my blog and I decided to focus less on DIY beauty and more on skincare products, beauty techniques and fashion.  I realised that I haven't published a fashion related post in a while.  Clothes are more than just pieces of fabric that we wear on our bodies.  Fashion is a means of self-expression which allows us to present ourselves to the world and show others who we are before we even utter a word.   There are A LOT of different types of fashion styles, including; Artsy, Bohemian, Feminine, Girl Next Door, Goth, Grunge, Punk, Sporty, Streetwear, Tomboy, Trendy and Vintage.    Finding a style that is suited to our individual tastes can help us feel more confident, more comfortable, and more  like ourselves .   A punk outfit or a gothic-dress can be  unique fashion statements that can show your attitude and personality. When developing a personal fashion style, you don’t have to stick to a single style.  You can switch up your lo

Outfit inspiration - Spirit Day 2014

Hello everyone! I've put together two purple outfit ideas for Spirit Day ; a casual and a formal outfit.  Casual outfit recommendation: On this day people wear the colour purple to show support for  LGBT  youth  who are victims of  bullying .   Purple   symbolises 'spirit'  on the rainbow flag. Formal outfit recommendation: Getting involved is easy!  Turn your social media pics purple   here , and wear purple on October 16th and help create a world in which LGBT youth are accepted for who they are. Which outfit do you prefer?   Are you going to wear purple on Thursday?   Answer in the comment section below!
