Hot trends for Spring 2012!

The items below are what I think will be the hottest trends for Spring 2012. The fact is, no one really knows what the trendiest items are because it kind of happens and goes with the flow, so really the only way you can predict it is to
1. Think about the trends of last year
2. Think about trends that have been going on for evveerr!
3. Things that make sense 
4. Things you wear that you think will make a huge comback or keep going. So! With that being said lets get namingHot trends for Spring 2012!

  • Colored denim. It made a huge hit in 2011 and is still going to go strong wit

  • Colored Denim. It made a huge mark in 2011 and now it's time for 2012's time to shine. They're going to look especially good as pastels in the sping. I can just feel it :) haha. However I don't own a pair of colored denim but I think if I see some aqua or lavender ones I'll probably pick them up! They're really easy to style also, just throw on a graphic tee, some colored denim, and some uggs or boots or flats or whatever you want and call it good. They can also be dressy. Just wear them with the right tank or shirt or jacket and it adds instant niceness.
  • Dip dye hair. I believe in September or October, Heather Morris--from glee--was see on Seventeen Magazine's cover with colored ends hair. She had all the colors of the rainbow going however it looks beautiful even with just one color or two or three..etc;. etc....I really want to try this but It's a little to edgy for me. (This just in! Selena Gomez was spotted with purple and blue dip dye!!!)
  • Floral clothing. I myself really love floral print but for some odd reason, it became really popular throughout the entire 2011 year with everything from shorts, skirts, tops, leggings, bags, even pants! PANTS! I really like the skirt in the picture, I don't know where it's from though. You can find a skirt like it from basically anystore that sells clothing and is modern, heck I bet you could find one in a vintage or thrift store!
  • THE NAKED PALETTE! From rant to rant to rave to rave and back again, we've all heard of the Naked palette, even people who don't wear makeup have heard of the Naked Palette. The reason the Urban Decay Naked Palette has been so hyped about is because neutral/ natural colors have been really in, the whole bright blue eye shadow isn't cutting it anymore grandma! The hippie boho chic look has though. With its prices high, and cares low people bought and bought and bought the N palette to a point where the Urban Decay creators had to make a 2nd Palette! Named obviously, The Naked Palette 2 with more matte colors rather than shimmer and a whopping fresh new 5 shades for the likes of my fellow beauty lovers.
  • Cat eye sunglasses. Wayfarer shades are so 2011. I actually got so sick of seeing people with the nerd glasses, that I hunted for a cute new style that wasn't freaky. The cat eye shaped lens is, in my opinion, fresher and will be most likely the new best thing. I'm only kidding, I love wayfarers but come on, aren't you a little sick of seeing them everywhere. Try a new shape. Cat eye sunglasses or just glasses are super retro but are quirky and modern if work correctly. 
  • High waisted shorts. Love the pair I'm showing you up there. They're grey with a huge bow. The bow adds a girly touch to the interesting look of the shorts. You've got to be careful and wear it with the right top though.
  • Crossbody bags. They come in all shapes, sizes, colors, patterns all to fit your need. They're really stylish and can be worn basically anywhere. It's again, a tad bit associated with the hippie look and was very popular in 2011 but I think that they will be just as wonderful in the year 2012 (ps. they're really convenient to college or school students that go to sports games or to the mall or activities because its small enough to not get in the way, but big enough to carry keys, cell phone, money, ID, Lip gloss and even a snack.
  • Leopard print anything. It speaks for itself people
  • Revlon Lip butters. Again, rant rant rant, rave rave rave the lip butters a GIANT GIANT GIANT  for 2012. I actually picked up Strawberry Shortcake from Target (its one of their colors) and it doesn't really have a taste but its really soft and melty and does a great job with color and hydration for the lips. Most of the colors are pretty neutral so they're extra wearable but the bad thing is, I know it doesn't sound expensive but at $6.00 to $9.00 they're kinda pricey each just for ONE lip butter. On the bright side, they're really nice so they're pretty much worth it. And they're popular so who gives a crap.
Thats all for this post but I hope you enjoyed and try out some trends for the Spring season!

Which dress?

Hey everyone! I have a quick question about the dress I want to wear to my formal dance. There's two choices that I love but I can't decide. I'll tell the pro's and cons and it'd be so helpful if you could vote. I will have the poll up but you can comment if you want :)
Choice #1 which I think I like better but Idk.
This dress has two tone sequins of copperish silver and black on the top portion of the dress. The bottom is a pleated black form that hits about mid thigh or lower. There's a beltish looking thing that separates the sequins and pleats. It's strapless.
Pro's for me: Its stylish, Its a good length, Its really versatile, its sequined, has a built-in-bra. Its $30
Con's for me: I heard the sequins poke and itch, its strapless, it's more than the second dress which doesn't really matter because its gonna be really cheap either way.

Choice #2

I tried to find this so I'd show up but I'll just have to post the link, but this dress is at Jc penney also and its only $20 dollars!!!! Its so cute it has a white top with ruffles and a studded and beaded belt thing with a plain black bottom part. It hits about the same length and it's also strapless.
Pro's for me: Its really cute with the black and white contrast, the ruffles are a pretty girly touch, it hits mid thigh, it's cheaper, It's probably more comfortable, built in bra.
Cons for me: A review said that when they got it the beads were already falling off, so basically its probably not as well put together, it's strapless, Its not as trendy without sparkles.

So please please please help me figure out which one to buy because I'm stuck! If you don't have an account or don't want to comment, I will have a poll to vote on. However leaving a comment is perfectly fine. You can leave any opinion or if you have either dress I'd be happy to know any tips or something not listed above :) Thanks
xoxo Shenae!

Valentines day hairstyles

Valentines day is coming up soon and cute hairstyles are a must. Get these celeb inspired do's!

Always check out Taylor Swift because she is theeeee girliest celebrity out there. She might have a lot of red carpet buns and updo's but they're always a little different. Especially this time because she lightened her hair! Love it. Next there's Beyonce! I don't know when this pic was taken but she in my opinion looks her best in this picture. I love this color on her and I love how the style is not completely straight but not a poufy afro :). Lastly is Katy Perry, and colored tips are in huge trend right now and I don't think they'll be here much longer so do it for valentines day with maybe pink and purple or just pink or just purple. :) I think I want to do dip dye but, not too sure.
Thats all , well I hope you enjoyed and have a wonderful Valentines day!

20 Beauty Tips on New Years!

Hello my lovely wonderfuls! Today I'll be giving you 20 TWENTY TIPS to help you look and feel your best for the 2012 Year!
1.) Wear sunscreen everyday under or with foundation to help stall aging.
2.) If you have oily skin, use a water-based skin moisturizer.
3.) Make your lip lines disappear by applying your lipstick vertically instead of horizontally.
4.) For a more dramatic look, apply a coat of volumizing mascara, and then follow up with a coat of lengthening mascara on the tips.
5.) Apply your skin moisturizer after a bath or shower so that you can lock the moisture into your skin.
6.) When penciling your eyebrows, begin at the inner corners and work outwards toward your temples.
7.) If you have thick lips, don't wear any lip color that is too glossy or shiny. Doing so will make your lips appear even thicker.
8.) Massaging your scalp can improve circulation to your head and promote hair growth.
9.) If you pluck your eyebrows, do so before your bedtime. This way, any redness or swelling can have a chance to go away overnight.
10.) Sweet potatoes are full of vitamin A, which is known for being an anti-wrinkling agent.
11.) Plucking your eyebrows in the direction of the hair growth will be less painful and will leave a more natural look when you are done.
12.) If you have green or hazel eyes, use brown, apricot, purple, plum, deep khaki or forest green eye shadow.
13.) Strong soaps can remove good oils from your skin. Therefore, avoid strong soaps; instead, choose mild cleansers.
14.) Eyeliner and full eyelashes can help make your eyes look bigger and more appealing.
15.) When possible, give your hair a rest. Go natural and leave off the styling products.
16.) Acrylics and other false nails usually carry more germs that natural nails.
17.) ALWAYS remove makeup before going to bed, mo matter how tired you might feel. Keep your skin clean overnight.
18.) Less is more, nuff said.
19.) Citrus fruits hold your skin cells together by forming collagen. This is why it's important to eat citrus fruits regularly.
20!) Heat up your eyelash curler with your blow drier for about 10 seconds. This will not only curl the lash easier, but will, keep it curled for a longer amount of time.
