Prom For The Realist 

High schoolers, you are now getting ready for PROM! Yes, it’s that time of year and things can be stressful but don’t you worry I’m going to put things in perspective.

First things first: Having to have a date is a complete myth. You do not need to go with anyone. I went solo to my senior prom and had a blast!

Second: You do NOT need to spend a fortune on your look. There is a ton of really cool ways to look unique and fashionable, that don’t have to leave you broke and stressed!

Lets break down your needs and your to-dos:

Dress– Try second hand shops or clearance racks. It’s super fun to go dress hunting! Plus, who wants to go in a dress that everyone else has.

Tux– Honestly a sports coat and slacks can be just as great as a tux! Your don’t have to follow all the 1950s rules of dances (You so can though!). Just with dresses try alternative means as well as going to a tuxedo rental store.

Shoes– Guess what? There is more to the shoe game then just heels! My sister wore toms to her prom and looked extremely cute and edgy! Oh and a quick note your going to be ditching those shoes as soon as the music comes on anyways!tom1

Jewelry (optional)- Ladies and gents wearing gaudy bling is out. If your dress is the star of the show, wear simple pieces!

Hair– Like I said keep it simple! Don’t over do it on the products. Remember hairspray is to help hold not make your “do” rock hard! Trust me people can tell! sarah 1

Makeup-Simple chic makeup is just as great/ maybe even better than extreme colors and crazy contouring.

Nails– It is just as much fun painting your nails as it is going to the salon to get a full set! I think both can be just as beautiful as the other!prom sister

Going to get your hair and makeup done is a really good thing to do if you can’t do it yourself. But I think having a get ready party and having your friends come over to help is a great way to have fun and just relax!

Remember prom is suppose to be fun! Don’t worry about others and don’t forget that this is a right of passage! This is for you, so have fun and look how you want to look!

These photos are from my little sisters junior prom so ill be posting a hair and makeup post similar to the ones in the pictures, don’t forget to watch out for those! If you have any questions or need advice let me know!

Question of the day-what does/did your prom dress look like?

Spring Time Nails In Your Forecast

Hey everyone! I hope everyone is doing well…. Believe it or not spring has sprung (if the weather would get the hint). So in honor of the seasons changing I figured I would share my top 8 spring nail polish picks!

  1. Essie’s Fiji (Pale pink) nine times out of ten I’m wearing this shade. fiji
  2. Essie’s Sequin Sash (Shimmery pale gold/top coat) Part of their bring back collection.sash
  3. Butter London Candy Floss (Pale Blue)butter london
  4.  O.P.I. Kitty White (pearly white/top coat) Part of their Hello Kitty collection.hello kitty
  5. Sinful Colors Kylie Matte Collection: (These are no longer available but I added the sinful colors link because they have pretty much the same colors in different collection!)
    North Star (Shimmery violet)
    Butter Kup (Shimmery pale yellow)
    Kool As A Kukumber (Shimmery pale blue/green)
    V.I.Peach (Shimmery Pale Coral)sinful colors

A quick tutorial of how I do my nails-

First: Shape your nails and remove all polish/oils
Second: Apply a base coat
Third: Apply two coats of nail polish
Fourth: Apply a top coat
Finally: Apply a cuticle oil 

I love all the pale colors as you probably could tell from above. If I had to pick the best applying nail polish would be Butter London or Essie. Let me know what your favorite nail polishes are for any season! If you have any requests or question, don’t forget to comment below! Lets chat.

Question of the day- If you could design a nail polish what would you name it? What color would you choose?

Easter Basket Goodness

Hey everyone! I hope you all had an amazing Easter, I know I did.

I’m absolutely stunned at the love and generosity my family showed this year. I woke up Sunday morning, went downstairs and boom!
