Forever 21 online is so much different from their stores in malls. You can view everything and not be limited to certain things that the store near you has. Everything is organized by the item, as well as new arrivals and style deals. If you are looking for somewhere that has cute but affordable clothes than I suggest you check out Forever 21!
If you like Forever 21 but you want higher quality products, then Tobi is a great website for you to try. Many of Tobi’s products are edgy and sophisticated. Everyday they have new arrivals that are 30% off. With greater quality clothing items comes a higher price but they are totally worth it! PLUS: when you join you get 50% off your first order!
Nasty Gal is a similar store to Tobi and Forever 21. The prices are more expensive but it is also better quality. If you want something that is more edgy or daring than you should definitely check their website out. They have everything from clothes to accessories. The website also comes with look books to see how to style the different items on their website.
If you’re the type of person that wants to stand out or not be so “mainstream” than Urban Outfitters is the place for you. Their clothes are great for people who want to trend set. Even though their clothes can be a little pricey, they are worth it. The best thing about Urban Outfitters is that they always have sales. What makes the online store even better than the actually store, is that they have deals that are sometimes not offered in stores! Not only does the online store have clothing items they also have things that you can have in your home.
The Etsy website is something out of the ordinary and great for people who like creating and selling things. The whole idea around this website is that people create items and then sell them for a certain price in their own shops that they create on Etsy. This website has everything from phone cases to toe rings. If it is something that we have in the world than it will be on there. The unique thing about this website though, is how everything is created and designed by someone. You will have to message the seller with the information that you want for your item your purchasing but that’s as easy as 1,2,3!
Brandy Melville has very simple and edgy clothes. Everything that Brandy has is casual and comfortable. The give you the look of casual chic and you can wear most of their items year-round. One thing you should keep in mind for this brand is that, most of their stuff is just one size and doesn’t come in multiple sizes. Make sure you keep this in mind when you are ordering online because some things may fit differently on you than it would on the model that is shown on the website wearing the item.

If you opened up almost any magazine or website online you see the images of skinny girls. The tabloids and media have portrayed being underweight a “thing” or something that everyone should wear. If you look at celebrities they are all fit and small, and these celebrities are people’s role models. The truth is, is that being skinny is not how it should be, being normal is the new “thing”.
Looking around high schools and colleges you see girls trying to become someone they’re not. They all try so hard to look exactly like how the media wants them to look. Based on the hair, size, and clothes, they all look like robots. Now everyone says to be yourself and to be different, but they actually do mean this. You should be whatever you desire to be. You don’t need to be under 100 pounds to look good! If you are any shape or any size, you will always look fabulous!
I think a lot of girls struggle with the idea of being skinny or fit. So many of them want to look like their favorite celebrity. Truth is though, that many of these celebrities aren’t as perfect as they seem. They struggle themselves and look at other celebrities to become just like them. We all just need to be ourselves.
There is a difference between being healthy and just being overweight. You can maintain any weight you would like but make sure you are being healthy. You could be 200 pounds and being active, you were just made that way. Girls and guys both need to understand that everyone is made differently and being healthy for you could mean 200 pounds.
Studies have shown that when girls look at themselves they think of themselves as not pretty or they think that they are 10 times bigger than they actually are. It is just a natural tendency for girls to think that they are always fat or ugly. But once again truth is that you are all beautiful and are not ugly or fat, you’re perfect just the way you are.
Dove recently put out a video that is called Real Beauty Sketches. If shows women of all different ages describing themselves to this man who then sketches their face based on their descriptions of themselves. Then another women comes in and describes that same person to the sketch artist and they put the two images together. The sketch that the women described themselves turns out not looking like them, but the other one does and they realize that they girl themselves a false description. This video has and will continue to open so many girl’s eyes to what actually happens when you look in the mirror.
Remember everyone is beautiful no matter their size! 🙂

- Sewing machine
- Sewing pins
- Take your cotton mini skirt and start pinning the lace to the waist band of the skirt( the width of each piece is up to you, depending on your size and how much you want gathered)
- In order to create the gathered look and to prevent the skirt from losing the stretch, stretch the waist band tight while pinning the lace onto the band.

Starting last year lace shorts were becoming more and more popular as the summer went on and then the seasons changed, but that didn’t stop the shorts from coming back this spring season. Last summer I saw lost of lace shorts that were higher priced that looked fabulous but you didn’t want to have to sell an arm for so I found a solution, DIY! This is a great way to create the shorts you desire and not break your piggy bank while doing it!
What you will need:
- Pair of soffee shorts(or any shorts you want to use)
- Lace fabric
- Fabric glue
Steps to creating lace shorts:
1. Go to your nearest craft store and find the lace that you would love to see on your new pair of shorts. Great places to find lace fabric would be Jo-Ann Fabric Store or Michael’s.
2. Take a pair of shorts, I recommend Soffee shorts, they are comfortable and great for this type of project! Take your shorts and lay them out with the strips of lace on top.
3. Measure and cut the strips of lace so that it will be the same length as your shorts.
4. Take your fabric glue and glue just the top part of the lace so that you get a layered look! You want to start your next line of lace right about where the previous one ended.
5. After you are done applying the strips of lace to your shorts make sure you hang them up to dry all the way before wearing them!
Hope you enjoyed this DIY and to try it out for yourself! It is a simple and easy way to create the look without having to go and buy $100 pair of shorts!
Since the month of February is coming to an end and so are those dark nail polish colors we need new ones to replace them. Those pastels are back and ready to bring out the inner glow in your hands and feet! If you are interested in the colors for this spring season continue reading! 🙂
1. Pale Nails
Pale neutral colors are going to be huge this season! With everyone wearing bright colors in their clothes you need your nails to stand out. Why bring in more bright colors when you can keep it more neutral? Cream colored nails are a great way to keep a balance between those bright pastel colors!
If you think that pastel colors are the only things allowed during spring time YOU’RE WRONG! All over the runways and fashion shows, models were sporting metallic nails. Colors from silver to gold, to copper. If you want to try this look out but don’t want to be to risque right away, then you can try painting one or two of your nails a metallic color while the rest are another choice!
3. Two toned
Who needs one color when you can have two?! If you’re going to participate in this trend then all you need is two different colors! This trend has became more and more popular lately and the runways aren’t an exception. Painting your tips or the cuticle area of your nails one color while the rest of the nails are a different color, or no color at all, is what the two toned trend is all about! This is a great idea if you want to have a little daring to your nails but not overboard.
4. Jagged Edges
Spring isn’t just all about flowers and pretty things, you can add a little rebel rocker in there somewhere right?? RIGHT! Your nails are a perfect example! Lately jagged edged designs and unmeasured lines and popping up everywhere on nail beds! To achieve this look you just need two or more different colors and a creative mind!
