Ed Sheeran Inspired Nails
I went to see Ed Sheeran in concert the other day and I decided to go all out with my nails. I made my left hand plus inspired and my right multiply inspired to represent his old and his new. I’m really happy with the way they turned out :)
First of all I’m so excited for you! GA concerts are a lot of fun and usually wind up being the best kinds of concerts for me. You’re not going to be trampled, you might get shoved around a little bit, but I’ve never seen anyone get seriously injured from a GA concert.
I have a whole post on outfit tips for GA concerts here if you want to read it :)
As far as getting there, it all depends. The earlier you get there, the closer you will most likely be. Although, again it all depends. I’ve gotten to a concert a hour before and been in the front, but other times I’ve gotten there 7 hours before and been in the back. Getting there early can be a lot of fun if you plan right. Bring snacks and plenty of water. I also recommend bringing an old blanket or buying a cheap one to sit on while waiting. Make sure you bring one that you do not mind not getting back because most venues will not let you bring it in. One of my favorite things about getting there early is meeting other fans and it helps build excitement and such.
I have a few major tips/standards that I usually stick to:
If you have any more questions do not hesitate to ask, and let me know how it goes! :)
Thrifting Haul 8/23
First of all I completely scored on CD’s. They were $1.99 each and I have been looking for/wanting all of them for a long time. I was able to get:
Then I got a dish for $9.99 that I plan on using to organize my lipsticks. Old/thrifted dishes and cups are the greatest things to use for organizing anything from makeup to school supplies to kitchen tools.
My absolute favorite thing I got today was this cute sweater. It is black and gold knit and can be easily dressed up and down. I’ve been looking for something like this forever and I will definitely be wearing it a lot - get ready to see it in many outfits to come!
I was actually able to find these jeans in the men’s section and I am very excited to wear them! They are high rise with a wider pant leg which makes them very retro. I love the distressed, light wash because I can wear them in any season. My favorite thing about them is that they fit me and are actually long enough for me! I am six feet tall which makes finding pants really difficult.
The last thing I picked up is this oversized coat. It has very 90s shoulder pads with buttons and an oversized collar. Since I live in Southern California, I probably will not have many opportunities to wear it, but since it was only $8.99 and so cute I had to get it.
I really recommend thrifting because its a great way to find original, one of a kind clothing for cheap prices. I hope you enjoyed my little haul and thank you for reading! :)
Arctic Monkeys Concert / Fall Out Boy & Paramore Monumentour Concerts Outfit
(yes I wore the same thing to two concerts within a week of each other and I’m not ashamed)
I made my romper with some left over old fabric that my clothing teacher gave me a while ago. I used an old pair of shorts and as reference for the pattern making as well as a basic knit t shirt block for referencing as well. I am very happy with the way it turned out because it is so comfortable yet very cute and stylish.
Senior Pictures Hair & Makeup
I finally took my senior pictures the other day and I honestly feel so old; I cannot believe that high school has gone by so quickly and I’m about to start my last year.
I wanted to keep my look simple & on the more natural side. It is a heavier makeup look rather that what I usually wear, but usually with pictures as important as this, I put on a little more.
On my face:
I got my hair done a local salon which was really exciting considering I have never gotten my hair professionally styled before. The hair dresser first washed & conditioned my hair. Then she blew it out using a medium round brush. After the blow out, she straightened the top parts so they were perfect and then curled my hair using a wand. After she was done with the curls, she brushed through them with her fingers and used some hair spray.
Thats it for my senior picture look, thanks for reading :)
