Hi guys,

living in Europe is actually pretty great. We have a lot of freedom, and a lot of awesome cities that are pretty close together. This also means a lot of awesome styles that come together on very little space. Additionally each country has amazing and fascinating history.

But like every 17- year old teenager I want to leave home and backpack around the country and expirience amazing things that you only see in romantic comedies. Even though there is probably a fat chance of that happening, a girl can dream. And thats not going to end my travelling dreams.

Because, I Want To See…

His & Her Fashion Tips for NCAA & NFL Games

Hi guys,

a lot of you are probably hard-core football fans. Even if you’re not, there’s probably a big chance that if you live in America you still go or watch the games with your friends and family. In my experience,(and since I’m South African, I’m referring to rugby) the atmosphere is the best part of the whole experience. Like any event you have the wonderful opportunity to pick out an outfit to wear. The problem: It’s easy to accidentally just go for a pair of jeans and your teams jersey, which is a shame because there is so much potential to get creative and stand out in the crowd. Here are a few options to show how fabulous you actually are, while supporting your favorite team. In my case the … You guessed it! The Miami Dolphins!!! But don’t worry, this is to all football fans out there!

1.Embrace the teams mascot. This is an option for both the bold and the subtle personalities out there. And if the mascot is an animal the better. Cute or even trendy animal prints have been everywhere this year, and you can easily use these in everyday life too which is perfect for all you people out there on a budget. Also don’t be afraid to use fan merchandising in your outfits. If you’re looking for a great website I always would recommend Fanatics. They have a great selection for every team that you could imagine.

2. Accessorize. This is so important and an easy way to spruce up any outfit. Don’t worry guys, a trendy watch can go a far way. This way you can easily incorporate the teams mascot, without it seeming tacky.

3. For her: add something masculine, for him: dress up. Unisex trends have been in this year, BUT don’t go raiding your boyfriends closets. If you like it there’s a good chance he likes it to. Remember, there is no shame buying shirts from the guys section of the store. You can either wear the shirt over a tank and roll up the sleeves or just tie it around your waist with a cute crop top. Either way it’s a clever way to make use of the nice shirts guys get to wear without seeming…well masculin. Collage 2015-01-16 20_40_10 Off-shoulder top, Dress shirt, Sneakers, Skirt

Now for him: get away from your washed out jeans. Dress it up, because there is nothing more sexy than a guy with style. Ditch your washed out jeans, go for pants instead. Or instead of the jersey wear a dress shirt in your teams colors with a pair of black jeans. Dress shirts are an awesome way to show team support but in a more subtle way. Untuck the dress shirt for a more casual look. Collage 2015-01-16 20_23_19 Dress Shirt, Oxford Shoes, Jeans

4. Get away from boring sneakers. This means, girls go for a cute pair of ankle boots, or give it an edge with some lace up combat boots. Guys, if you love your sneakers too much, don’t despair. You can go for a more formal version and root for the Oxford shoes. However the same rule applies to you guys, boots are always a good alternative.

5. Reinvent the jersey. You love the original jersey? No worries! Just be original with the rest of the outfit. Ditch the boring sneakers and throw a nice jacket on, especially if it has some detail. This tip works for all the guys and girls out there.

6. Never wear more than 3 colors and a basic color. This means you can’t wear more than 4 colors at once. One of those colors has to either be black or white, and then you can add up to 3 more. You can also use the basic color to tone down all the other ones. Collage 2015-01-16 20_37_06   Crop Top, Skinny Jeans, Blazers   Collage 2015-01-16 20_47_48 Dress Shirt, Tie, Jeans

Now you’re all ready for a fun and awesome evening with your friends and family. I hope that you feel happy and confident with what you’re wearing and never stop being amazingly you.

Lots of Love

Fashionable Savers: Shoptagr

Hi guys,

I don’t know about you but I’m a huge fan of online shopping but let’s face it , it’s pretty easy to lose overview of things. Also have you ever been so obsessed with something, that even though it was out of your price range you kept stalking it, just waiting for it’s price to go down?

You spend hours everyday checking this particular site for a change in price with no guarantee of it ever happening.

There is hope for people like us because now we have Shoptagr.

This website is just in time for Christmas and it’s very simple to operate. You just log in and while shopping, when you see something you like, you either drag the +Tag Bar to the web address of the item or you can download the +Tag Booklet. Then you just say what color, size and discount you want. After that you can just sit back and wait for an email which notifies you when the item is on sale.

I love…

…that you can save so much time with this site and best of all it’s completley free.

…that rewards can be earned by sharing the site with your friends and family. The rewards are mostly gift vouchers to your favorite online store. You can earn money by saving money!

…that you can make different lists so that you can bring some order in your online shopping world.

I don’t like…

…how the button only works with certain stores. It doesn’t work on all. But to e fair, they have a lot of popular stores registered and they are planning on expanding.

…that the price reduction only works fort he items you register. It doesn’t work if there is a code that you can add to get a discount, it only is activated if you can save on that specific item.

My verdict:

I love Shoptagr. It’s free and it really does work. I also love how to use this site, it isn’t manditory to download the booklet.

Also there are a lot of stores that you can use it on, for example Asos, Victoria Secret, Topshop and so many more.

I hope you guys will find it as useful as I do.

Happy shopping

TV-Style: Fashion inspired by Reign

Hi guys,

TV-Style is a Fashion Style where I’m going to talk about the Style you see on the small screen at home. I’ll be covering the clothes, the makeup and in general how to achieve this look.

What’s it about?

Reign is a historic but still fictional TV-series that follows Mary, Queen of Scots in her early years. It has just started its 2nd season.

The story starts when Mary is sent to French Court to marry the future king of France Francis, whom she’s been engaged to since she was six. Life at French Court is hard with all the ever-changing politics and power plays and Mary finds herself between two guys, the love of her life, Francis and his bastard half-brother Sebastian (Nickname: Bash).

I’m absolutely obsessed with this show, mostly because I love the music, which is modern, and the style, which isn’t necessarily modern but it’s definitely not historically accurate. I think it’s like a middle-age Pretty Little Liars, which I personally think is awesome. So much deceit and exitment, a girl can dream.

Mary Stuart

Mary is portrayed by Adelaide Kane, who you might already know because she made an appearance in Teen Wolf, as Derek’s younger sister. There she was an awesome badass, but it goes without saying that she is still is a fierce queen as the leading role in this series.

Fashion:

  • Lace: Mary wears a lot of lace, which in those days was a sign of power, because it was handmade(!!!). She has it included in almost every outfit, sometimes she wears it as a lining or on her top. For her wedding she even wore it over her whole body, which is absolutly beautiful and it makes me want a wedding just so I can wear it.

  • Colors: In season 1 you see her in a lot of light colors, but also in gold and red, those are kind of her signature colors. In season 2 you notice a change in the color schemes, in contrast she wears darker colors, probably to accompany the darker theme of the show.

  • Cut: The outfits are mostly cinched around the waist which is a wonderful style to wear and very flattering. You could incorporate this with skater skirts or with high waisted jeans.

Accessories:

  • Mary is a queen and obviously has to wear a crown. She doesn’t wear the same one all the time because it changes with every outfit. You could incorporate it with a fashionable flower crown or a jewelled hair band. Mabye you could match it to the seasons.

  • A staple of Mary’s style are her earings. These are mostly big and dangley, with stones and gems that also match her outfit color scheme. She has a lot of things going on with her hair, her crown and her earings, so the rest of the outfit should be kept simple.

Hair & Makeup:

  • Mary pretty much always wears her hair wavy. One thing that I love about Reign is that they always incoorparate bohemian style braids which is perfect for festivals or concerts.
  • to achieve her makeup in season 1, I would go with a brown kayal and mascara. Mabye add on a nice pink blush and a neutral lipstick.  She sometimes goes for a, you guessed it, red lipstick when there is a special occasion. Her look in the first season is very young and natural.
  • in season 2 you definitely see a change in her makeup. Same as with her style her makeup becomes darker. If you want to incoorporate that change stay with the brown natural color but mabye go for a sexy smokey eye and a brownish-mauve lipstick.

Francis II

He is the love of Mary’s life or so she thinks when she arrives in France. I personally don’t like him and let’s just say he is a true prince. He wears a lot of black with gold detailing and honestly has more volume in his hair than I do. But he is a major character and the show wouldn’t be the same without him.
