Beyond Beauty
Sunday September 14, 2014

Now I know why so many beauty gurus have these acrylic organizers. They make your makeup collection organized and pretty. Fortunately my sister’s boyfriend gave it to me as an early birthday present. But I do not know where he got it.  I never thought about getting one, but I now know why people get them. I literally have less than ten minutes to do my makeup and I would usually grab what I have out because I do not have time to dig through my make up bag.

It’s hard to believe that Fall starts next week because it’s been so hot lately. Like I went shopping yesterday but didn’t feel like trying anything on because it was so hot. I haven’t been in the mood to shop for clothes lately. I have no idea why… Hope you guys have a wonderful weekend.

A Class Act
Monday September 8, 2014

I got a bad case of senioritis. I thought senior year was going to be a breeze. It’s honestly not. I’m overwhelmed with college apps, senior projects, and deadlines. I kinda just want to sleep through the year to avoid it… Tip I like to do when I’m stressed and overwhelmed is to bring and do my work at a coffee shop. I don’t know why it calms me down, but I feel so much better and I would get a lot of work done. I think it’s because I love the coffee shop atmosphere. PS. Ignore my ugly handwriting. I was lazy…

Here are some questions you guys have sent me through out the week asking for my advice. This is my first advice post. I figured it was better to do this so I can answer some questions all in one post so I don’t spam you guys. 
Q: Heyyyyy so to start off I’m in grade 9 and the guy I like is in grade 10 which means I don’t have any classes with him. How do I get him to notice me. How do I get him to like me. And it’s not weird if it’s one year older right? If I have no classes with him, how am I supposed to make him notice me so he talks to me first! please please please help me! Xoxo love you
A: You have to make friends with him first before you can get him to like you. I do not think it is weird that he is a year older. That’s pretty normal, especially in high school. Do you guys have any mutual friends? Try talking to them or many hang out with them especially when he is around. Hang out where he hangs out during breaks. You can always approach him first.
Q: Any style ideas for a side bang?
A: You can never go wrong with straight or beach waves. If you want to look more put together, you can try a wavy side pony tail.
Q: I wanna make a blog just like yours kinda.. But idk a username or blog name :/ my name is ashley and i wanted to make a blog about life, fashion, and beauty.. Could you help me out wit name ideas?
A: Try to choose a url that has a flow to it’s name. I know it is hard to find one that isn’t taken, but try to pair your name with adjectives (if you want to include your name). Or you can use “xo” or “psits” and insert a nickname you may have. You can always do something you like. I was going to change my url to coffeeandchoas.
Q:I’m having my confirmation on Sunday and I don’t know what to wear as I don’t want to wear a dress.. Could you help me out with some outfit ideas? Thank you!
A: Made some right here.
Q: I’m about to go to Lush soon for the first time. What should I get if I have oily skin? 
A: Since it is your first time, I would suggest you checking their stuff online. Lush can be very overwhelming in the store for first timers. Looking around online, you will get a feel for their product and prices. For my oily skin, I get their coalface and cupcake mask. You can always ask a worker for help.
Q: How can I find really good deals on things and save money? I feel like you are a very savvy shopper. :) 
A: I will be making a separate post on this.
Q: Hi Sarah. I am a very shy person and I’m too shy to talk to people because I have a low self esteem. What should I do? Please help.
A: I understand where you’re coming from. I’m actually a pretty shy person myself. The key to boast your self esteem is to stop comparing yourself to others. Nothing can hurt our self-esteem more than unfair comparisons. I know it’s tough, but you need to stop comparing yourself to others. Everyone is different. Remember that they have their story and you have yours.

Summer Blowout
Wednesday September 3, 2014

It’s finally September and that only means one thing; Summer Blowout sales and Fall trend arrivals. Just scored a pair of high waisted shorts at Urban Outfitters for $6. It was like 40% off sale items because of labor day weekend. I also think they’re getting rid of their summer stuff to stock up on Fall pieces. I might cut a little bit of the fringe because it looks too overwhelming, but other than that I think it’s a steal.

What's a pretty back to school outfit I can wear with brown riding boots ? Preferably one that isn't big sweater, scarf, and leggings

There are surprisingly many other ways to wear them. You can wear a fitted flannel, denim shirt, a white dress, and ect..

A Night Out on The Town
Sunday August 31, 2014

Happy Labor Day weekend! I love three day weekends because you have time to do things that you don’t have time to do. Instead of spending the weekend doing homework, I have an extra day to relax. And that’s exactly what I did. I spent Friday night watching 5 hours of Breaking Bad and caught up on Teen Wolf. Yesterday I spent the day with my sisters shopping around for puppy stuff and laptops and ended up spending the evening in Corte Madera. We shopped around, ate at California Pizza Kitchen, and got ice cream at Three Twins. It was literally the perfect summer night because the weather was cool enough to wear a sweater and shorts. I then ended the night watching Breaking bad again. I am so sad that I only have six episodes left. I love it too much to let it go. I can not wait for the spin off next year. Hope you guys have a wonderful weekend. x
