Celebrity Style: Blair Waldorf’s Coats

One thing that I noticed while I was watching Gossip Girl…the amazing fashion!  I mentioned this in my GG post, and I am going to be doing a few Celeb Style posts on it!  For the first instalment  I have found four of Blair’s coats, and found either the exact ones, or very close matches.  I will probably do one of these for Serena too, so stay tuned for that!

DIY Beauty/Fashion Collage

Hello!  So sorry I haven’t been posting for a week!  Oopsie!  January has being pretty nuts for me…and it’s going to continue to be like that all the way through.  I have EXAMS.  Yep.  Just to get an idea, yesterday I had a science test, today I had a science test, tomorrow I have a french exam, monday I have a french exam, monday I have a geography quiz, sometime in here I am going to have another french quiz, a french exam on friday, a geography exam the next friday after that, and then my other two exams on that next monday and tuesday.  GOODNESS.  So I’ve gotta get studying!  The exam that I have on Monday, it’s a 3 minute long presentation in french that I’ve been memorizing, so I have been a little stressed with that.  Oh, and then I start a new semester on Feb. 5th, which is my easy semester with English, Business, Math, and Family Studies.  Thank goodness I got science and french over with.  Haha, so I apologize if I won’t be posting very frequently throughout the month…I’m not dead!  I’m just…consumed with craziness.

So, what I’m sure you are here for…

My collage!  I have a collage that I made about a year ago in my room, and I am doing a full post on it!  I’m going to share my tips, and ideas, and a few close-up pictures of mine.

To be honest I don’t even know where I got the idea from to make one of these, it was so long ago!  And I wanted to say that I have also started making one with birds from Birds And Blooms magazines for a birthday present for my Aunt and Uncle…so they don’t have to be just beauty…you can use whatever clippings you’d like!

Here are a few things I’ve learned that I want to share!  These are just what I did with mine, but obviously you can customize your’s however you desire.

  • Make clean cuts!  Go around the image neatly and evenly to make it look nice and neat.  
  • Don’t worry about overlapping, but don’t do it too much.  When you get almost done, you sometimes will have some little spots to fill up, but pick and choose the right sizes of pictures so that they try to fit well in the blank space.
  • Try to fill up as much area as you can, but once again, don’t overlap too much.
  • Remember that you can change up the angles of things for a cool look.
  • All sizes welcome!  I think a collage looks better with lots of sizes of images cut out.
  • Even out the colours.  I liked to make it sort of all even, and not too dark in one place, or too pink in another.
  • Keep in mind that when you are done your eye might go to one single thing, and you want to be sure that you really like that thing.  Don’t make the focal point something that you don’t love.
  • Even out the sizes too!  Make sure there aren’t huge things in one spot, and little things in the other.
  • Keep in mind that if you are framing it, the frame will cover up the edges a little.
  • Do you want writing or no writing?  I liked an even mix of both.
  • Keep a large garbage bin right beside you so that you can just lean over it while you are cutting the images for an easy clean up!
  • If you are looking for really little things to fill up some space, you can use words you like.  For example ‘blush’, or ‘Nordstrom’ to fill out the little spots.

And my last and final tip…the most important in my opinion…

  • Make sure that you love every single thing you cut out.

That is what made mine so special to me.  I really went through tons of magazines, and picked out things that I really liked or that sort of had a story to them.  I really can’t say that I dislike ANYTHING on my collage.  This is what made it the most time consuming for me.  I always found things that I loved, but there would be like article writing over them and I didn’t use them…haha.

By the way, I did this collage in sort of two periods.  I worked on it for a few months, and then took a long break, and then got into it again.  I just used old magazines from around my house and a bristol board.

Anyways, enough with this, here it is!

I have seriously gotten so many compliments on this thing!  I just can never stop looking at it whenever I’m getting ready in the morning.

Thanks for reading!  Talk to you soon, and please let me know if you make one or have one!  Bye!

Countdown To Christmas: My Wishlist!

Hey guys!  Sorry I’ve been gone for a while, the cold is getting to me and I’m sick!  I feel a little better right now, so I just put together a Polyvore set, so here’s my Christmas wishlist!!

17 Days, 5 Hours, 35 Minutes

Screen shot 2012-12-07 at 6.02.35 PM

 

1. Burberry House Check Wool Square Scarf….I have wanted a Burberry scarf for over a year now, so it’s on here!

2. A plain red long sleeve shirt!  Kinda weird…but I am in a red faze right now and plain long sleeve shirts are so nice because I can wear them with tons of stuff.

3. Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC in Mint.  I have wanted one of these ever since I saw missglamorazzi’s (in January), and I have officially found the perfect colour!  I never even knew they made this colour until I was actually making a different Polyvore set and came across this one!  If you are thinking about getting one of these, shop through Polyvore because there are so many colours that I didn’t even know existed!

4. Danier Leather Bag that seems to look a LOT like the Mulberry Alexa, huh?  Yeah, for like a tenth of the price!  I was in Danier with my family a couple of weeks ago, and I came across this and almost died.  I, once again, have wanted a Mulberry bag for a long time and I found one…well sort of.  And it’s not a knockoff because it’s from Danier!  I am trying to convince myself that it was just inspired by the Alexa.

5. A black blazer!!  For whatever reason I don’t have one of these.  I can never find one that actually fits me, is good quality, and isn’t overpriced.   I recently found one is Sears that fit all three of my needs, and it’s on my wishlist!  If you can’t tell, I am asking for things that I have wanted for a really long time because I’m only fourteen and can’t buy this stuff for myself all the time.

6. SCARVES!  Yay!  I know I am asking for my Burberry which I will wear so, so much because it is so neutral, but I still want scarves!  I have lots of summer ones, and three fall ones that I wear all the time.  My school is absolutely freezing, and scarves are so nice for that.  I really want a nice black scarf because I don’t have one and I’m sure it will go with everything.

7. Chunky knit sweaters.  I want fifty!  I love the look of them, and like I said my school is freezing.  All of the tops/sweaters that I have all shrunk, so I can’t wear them with tights, so I am looking for some sweaters that I can wear with tights too!

8. Essie Midnight Cami nail polish.  Haha, just a little stocking stuffer but I have always eyed it and I don’t have a navy polish like it.

So that’s about it for my wishlist!  I am thinking about doing a haul after Christmas, so let me know if you’d like that!  You guys will be able to see these things in person.  Anyways, I hope you all are having a great day, and happy Friday!

Talk to you soon!

 

Made my set from here.
