A few months ago, I had the pleasure of meeting up with Gabby and a few other braiding accounts. I’m so excited to be a guest on her blog today, thank you Gabby!
The hairstyle I’m sharing with you today is a combination of two of my favourite braids: Fishtails and Faux Braids. Lately, I have been loving the look of Lace French Fishtail Braids and I thought it would be a nice combination with a Curly Faux Braid. I love Faux Braids because they look a lot more complex than they actually are, this one especially! It’s made of loose Topsy-Tail twists that alternative from one side to the other. I am wearing my Luxy Hair Extensions to add some volume and highlights to my hair, but this style can be done on most hair types!
To make this style more wintery and holiday-themed, I put some pretty silver spin pins in the braid which added some sparkle and made them look almost like snowflakes. We went up to one of my favourite photo-taking locations, a hiking trail that is especially pretty when there’s snow in the winter!
I hope you enjoy it!
A few months ago I found out about an fashion ambassador program that Nordstrom puts on! It sounded like a cool opportunity, so I signed up/ filled out an application. At the beginning of November I got an email saying that I had an interview!! I spent the month planning and getting ready. One of the things you have to bring when you go for the interview is a fashion project, for that I decided to put together a portfolio filled with my hair/ fashion pictures I have taken for my blog and Instagram. I had never been to an interview like this one so I was pretty nervous but really excited to experience an opportunity like that.
During the interview the questions they asked me were:
- Tell me about yourself
- Who is your fashion icon
- What are three trends that you know of right now
- Why do I want to be on the team
- What do I want to do as a career
At the end of the interview she told me I was basically in, but I would get the confirmation email in a few days. Waiting was so hard, but when I saw the email notification pop up on my phone I was through the roof!
I would also like to thank Nordstrom for this amazing opportunity, I am so excited to see what this adventure will bring! 🙂

This year I was really lost for a costume idea and I decided I wasn’t going to dress up, but then I thought I would just do a cool hairstyles. When I found this Minnie Mouse bun tutorial I remembered I had the perfect dress and it would be a great quick DIY costume 🙂 The hair took some practice (who knew that pig tails would be so hard lol) but after I figured it out I loved the result!
Today I will be sharing with you my costume pictures as well as how to incorporate things you already have in your closet into an easy and quick costume! I know that it is November and a whole year till next Halloween, but i thought that this would be a fun post to do 😉
My hair was inspired by the amazing Mindy from CuteGirlsHairstyles & Annie from Anniesforgetmeknots ❤
Bow from: Bowtikii
I found my shoes at Payless and then added red hair bows from Claire’s that I had from a halloween costume from a few years ago
Don’t mind my awkward pose as it was freezing out 😉
My dress I got second hand about a year ago, and then I paired it with a black cardigan I had in my closet and with some black tights! I also drew on my nose with some black eyeliner and added a white line with some face paint.
As you can see it is super easy to come up with a costume from things you already have and It doesn’t need to come from a store and cost 80$, all you need is a little imagination and creativity 🙂 My dress isn’t an exact match for Minnie’s, but thats okay because thats where your creativity comes in and you can make it your own!
The only things I bought was the shoes which were 15$ and the tights that we’re 3$, so my whole costume cost me about 18$! (it also only took me a few days to put together and I only came up with it about a week ago)
I hope you had a great Halloween filled with fun memories and lots of treats! 🙂
