Happy Christmas Eve everyone!
This is my 4th year doing a Cindy Lou Who inspired hairstyle. Every year I try to improve it and try new techniques. This year my mum was kind enough to sew me a Cindy cape.
Even though I have been doing this for four years it still takes me hours to prepare, do my makeup, and my hair.
Since the hair is the main focus, I will start with that.
The supplies I use are : a plastic cup, wire, a few wefts of hair extensions, a bow and lots of hairspray!
I added the extensions to the braids since my hair is thin and then to the front of the cup to hide it.
Hopefully one year I will have have a tutorial to explain how I do the hair 😉
For my makeup I just did winged liner, fake lashes, blush, highlighter and a red lip!
For my costume I paired the cape with a black and white plaid.
Here is the evolution over the past 4 years!
I hope you all enjoy the holiday season with friends and family ❤️ Merry Christmas!
Happy Halloween everyone! I can’t wait to share this years costume with you all, this year it took me forever to come up with an idea. I would find an idea that I loved, then I either couldn’t find the different pieces for it or I didn’t like it anymore. I decided to go to our local party/Halloween store to look for ideas. I tried on serval different costumes, then I found mine in the corner of the store and immediately loved it.
I am a 1950’s pin up girl! I have always loved the 1950’s dresses and especially the hairstyles, so it was really fun putting together this costume. I will link all of the different pieces at the end of this post.
This hairstyle was super fun and challenging to do. I also recreated it for school and just did one victory roll and loved how that looks as well. You can’t go wrong with some simple black heels! I was short on time and couldn’t find any of accessories for my costume, but I did find these adorable earnings, which I thought really completed the outfit! (But I have to admit they were a little heavy)
Here is a close up of my dress, I also added a red cardigan to match my other red accessories. For my headband, I just went to the fabric store and got some red fabric and tied it in a knot. For my makeup I did classic winged liner, with a little brown shadow in the crease. I did a little contouring and added some blush. Lastly I added a pop of colour with some red lipstick, and I drew on a fake mole with eyeliner to pull it all together.
Thanks for reading! I hope you all have a fun and safe Halloween.

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! 🙂
Today’s blog post is a collab with Julia from Little Chic Freak! I recently found her Instagram and blog and was blown away by her talent and knew she would be a great person to do my first collab with 🙂 When we were coming up with ideas we wanted to incorporate some of our favourite things along with some trends we have been seeing around!
We both decided to incorporate plaid in our owns way. I decided to pair a blanket scarf with a cute striped dress and some little brown booties.
Thanks for reading 🙂
