My First YouTube Video!

Hi guys!

So, this is my third attempt at a video haha! I have always wanted to make YouTube videos but have always been too embarrassed. I do not have the best camera and no professional lighting so I cannot make the best videos but I hope they are informative and entertaining! It's so much fun filming and editing them!I just started this channel as a hobby and something to do in my spare time. I have a full time job and this is just a little fun on the side :)

I hope that you guys enjoy this video and be kind to me! haha I Would love to hear some feedback from you guys, whether you are a new YouTuber like me or you have been doing it for awhile.

Hope we can be friends!!

Adelaide Kane Casual Style

Hi guys!

In an earlier blog, I talked to you guys about how I've been loving the show Reign and also the actress who plays Queen Mary, Adelaide Kane.

I actually really like her style outside of the show as well, and for today's post I wanted to pick a few outfits and show you guys how to get her casual look!

Outfit 1

This outfit is super casual. You can just wear a plain jersey knit racerback or tank top with a pair of gray jeans and a pair of platform heels. I really like the shoes with this really plain outfit! This would be  a great outfit for hanging out with friends out in the town or going shopping

 Outfit 2


This second outfit is similar to the first one but a little bit more put together so I would wear this even on a date, movie night, night out with friends or whatever :) The statement necklace adds a nice detail and also the lacey shoes are more of a feminine touch. The cross body bag makes the outfit a little more casual than adding a clutch. I think it is a simple but very pretty look.




Forever21
 She would probably also wear something like this with it

Hope you guys enjoyed these two looks. I will do another post with her more dressy looks as well so keep a lookout for that soon if you are interested!

Sailor Moon!

Hi guys!

Ever since I was little I have been obsessed with the anime Sailor Moon. When I was younger, my dad used to make me and my friends little toy Sailor Moon transformation sticks. We used to run around acting like the sailor scouts. Fun times! haha They are actually showing the old Sailor Moon anime on Hulu at the moment and also the re-make Sailor Moon Crystal, which is pretty cool.
 It brings back so many good memories from my childhood :) I love watching it in Japanese because that is how I grew up watching it and when I first heard the English version I was terrified of their voices haha It was pretty terrible! I encourage you to watch the Japanese version (if you do ever want to watch it), with english subtitles.




I have always wanted to be Sailor Moon or Sailor Venus and while looking online I found so many pictures of people who dress up like anime characters, Sailor Moon included; they are called cosplayers. I am hoping that one day I can also dress up like one of them for Comic Con :))

Here are a few of my favorites and let me know in the comments below if you are a Sailor Moon fan!

Reign/Queen Mary


Hi guys!

I have been obsessed with the show Reign ever since it came out a couple of years ago. If you have never watched it, then you need to! It's based on real life history but definitely doesn't follow it step by step. It follows a young Mary, queen of Scots and everything that happens around her. There are so many cool characters and the story is definitely interesting.

Season 2 recently came to an end and I am so sad :( if doesn't come back until the fall, but I am definitely excited!

One thing that I absolutely love about Reign is the fashion! Mary is definitely my favorite but everyone always looks amazing on that show. The clothing, jewelry and makeup is always on point.

Today, I just wanted to share with you all a couple of looks from queen Mary! I will probably go more in depth later on with a few of my favorite looks but until then, enjoy these!

Let me know in the comments below if you also love this show and who your favorite is!

Graduation Outfit

Hi guys,

I wanted to do a What I Wore Wednesday post since it is Wednesday but I actually haven't taken any pictures for my blog. I have been having problems with my old laptop, it was super slow, would take me hours to just type and post a new blog post. I finally got a new laptop so you will be seeing many new posts from me in the future.

So since my laptop was so slow, I haven't been taking any pictures or done anything for my blog. Yesterday I went to a graduation but I only took one picture of my outfit (which does not include shoes) for instagram. I will share that with you today. Sorry for the poor quality and here's to better OOTD's in the future!!


Excuse the duckface haha So I wore  a hi-lo dress from Charming Charlie which had a cute black and white bow in the back with a black waist belt and some jewelry. For shoes, I just wore a pair of sandals. Excuse the mess and the unprofessional photo haha

xoxo,

Not Your Mother's Dry Shampoo Review

Hi guys!!

Today I wanted to share with you all one of my favorite products for second day hair: dry shampoo! I know that's not a revelation and a lot of people use dry shampoo but I really like the one I have been using lately. I have tried different ones and this one has been by far my favorite one.

It is called NOT YOUR MOTHER'S CLEAN FREAK REFRESHING DRY SHAMPOO. It is part of the "Not Your Mother's" Collection but this is the only product I have tried from the brand.

I wash my hair every other day and use this on my hair the second day. My hair gets greasy at the roots but is quite dry towards the ends. All you need to do is spray the product in your roots, wherever you need it, even all throughout the hair, brush it out and watch it absorb all the oils ! You don't have to leave it in your hair for a couple of minutes before brushing, which makes it that much faster! It doesn't leave a lot of white residue, in fact, if you shake it enough, you will barely notice the powder.




The price is great and it beats other products I have tried like Dove, TreSemme, Suave. I haven't tried any high end brands so I can't compare to that, but this is a pretty good product for the money.






In the pictures above you will see my hair go from greasy (pic 2), after spraying it in (pic 3), and after styling it (pic 4.)

Picture 1 is just the product itself. The scent is not super strong and actually quite pleasant. I just think it smells like clean. This dry shampoo adds a lot of volume to your hair and will make it look like you just washed it. My only tip is o not spray too much because it can actually go in the other direction and become greasier.

If you got this far, thank you! You are awesome! Let me know in the comments below if you have ever tried this product and if not, what is your go to dry shampoo?

Adela
