Let’s Talk About Shoes Baby!

(Yes my title did have some Pitch Perfect inspiration behind it, it is totes aca perfect!)

I’ve had a splendid, absolutely marvelous, darling idea today. I’m going to talk about every girl’s best friend, besides diamonds, shoes! The right pair of shoes as we know it can make or break a look. I don’t know about you, but I rather be making looks than breaking them. It’s no secret that gladiator sandals are on fleek this summer…yes I used a word that I normally think is so silly, but yolo! Haha. I personally am such a fan of this trend. These shoes are so easy to pair with everything and you don’t always have to opt for the normal heel with an outfit. Heels look cute, but I hate wearing them. So sue me! I like to be comfortable and that’s my motto I live by. Trendy and fashionable meets comfort. I do also love how there is not only one kind of gladiator shoe, there really is something for everyone. You do not even have to do the full gladiator, you could just do the up to the ankle one. Let’s take a look:

This look is from JustFab and these are just so fabulous. It really gives a certain je ne sais quoi to a clean and simple look. These shoes are available at JustFab for $39.95 and are called “Marcelino”. I’d go buy them if I were you.

Then for the bold and eccentric we have the “Lennon”. There’s not much to say about these beauties other than, “Where do I swipe my card?” These are priced at JustFab for $44.95.

Now here is some more inspiration for outfit pairings: (I do not take any credit)

Vanessa looking fierce as always. Are we taking a time machine back to the 70s yet?

Screen Shot 2015-06-04 at 5.57.03 PM

I am in love with this look, I would wear this on the daily. So simple, sleek, and chic! If you are looking to buy something like the dress featured I would check out my favorite store American Eagle. I will provide a link to a dress that is almost like the one above, but search through their site. It is so addicting. Love Love Love!

That’s So 2014!

It’s hard to believe that 2014 is over and 2015 is ready for some great, new, and exciting memories. 2014 was a particularly hard year to get over because so many great things happened in my life. I graduated high school, started college, and made such great and new friends who I know are my soul sisters. I’m currently watching Sex and the City, and I honestly can see that great friendship with all of my girls. You know who you all are! I can’t help but wonder if 2015 is going to be as amazing as 2014, but I’m not going to dwell on the past. I’m going to make 2015 as great as it can be, who’s with me!?

Lately, I have not had an inspiring things to write about because I really needed to evaluate if I wanted to pursue writing still. I was at a point where I wanted to just give up, but writing has always been my second love. I could not see my life without pursuing my dream and if it does not work out, I’ll be happy that I even tried. But, I am getting way too far ahead in planning out my life. I guess it’s the woman in me. Why is it that women always have to be such planners? But then again, if women were not planners, what would the world look like? I do not even want to visualize it lol.

I hate that I hardy even update this blog anymore, I know I let a lot of people down, and I honestly do not like to make excuses. I am currently writing this on my vacation because my readers, you, deserve it. I honestly am so grateful that people even read my blog. I never could have imagined that I would have more than a couple readers, which would probably be my friends, in which I would force them to read it haha. But I wouldn’t be NewBeautyGuru if I did not leave you guessing where I went lol. I also think it is good to get out and enjoy life and not be stuck looking at a computer screen for long periods of time. I have been trying to disconnect with the digital world for a little bit and it is nice for a while. But of course I will never fully disconnect. I mean, who could?

So enough with the updates and on to what I think I do best haha. The Golden Globes were on this past Sunday and I was totally checking out everyone from head to toe. I mean the Golden Globes are honestly best when it is just about the fashion, let’s be real lol. So let’s take a look at my top 3 favorite fashions of the night!

Screen Shot 2015-01-13 at 5.28.26 PM

Gina Rodriguez. I am so proud of this girl right here. She is the star of one of my favorite TheCW shows, Jane The Virgin, and she won a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series. Most people do not get it right on the red carpet, but I just love this simple black look. I would gravitate for something like this myself.

Screen Shot 2015-01-13 at 5.23.44 PM

Does Emma Stone get it wrong ever? Some might say this is too simple of a look, but it is still so elegant and beautiful. I would wear this in a heartbeat. Why should women never be comfortable on the red carpet? This is just amaze-ball-azing!!

Screen Shot 2015-01-13 at 5.25.48 PM

Kate Hudson honestly just takes my breath away. I mean how hot, sleek, elegant, and confident does she look? Just perfection!

Screen Shot 2015-01-13 at 5.24.34 PM

Now Melissa McCarthy does not make my best dressed list, but I just need to really congratulate her! I mean I am so proud of her amazing weight loss! I would love her funny self either way, but how much more confident does she look in herself? For me, as long as you love yourself, there’s no one who will ever bring you down because you are freakin’ awesome. One can change the outside appearance as much as they want, but what makes you, you, will never change. We love you Melissa! What an inspiration.

I’m ready to make 2015 another year to remember. Here’s to taking chances, falling in love, surrounding ourselves with amazing people, and maybe hitting the gym! (If you’re into that of course haha). But let it be known, I love you and everyone just the way they are. I hope I did not offend anyone at all in this post. So let’s raise a glass to 2015 and make 2014 jealous! Soon we’ll be saying “That was so 2014!”

Kisses,

NewBeautyGuru

Decided to do something a little different.

I know that my blog is supposed to be about fashion and what music I’m listening to, but today I am going to change things up. Someone recently asked me to write something for them and I think it came out pretty good. It’s a little deep at first, but I think it has a good meaning behind it. It shows a little more of my creative side, so I thought I would share it with you all. Warning: It’s kind of girly, but then again a women wrote it lol. I know there are probably some grammatical mistakes, so please be gentle and kind. I am opening up to you all so please take that into consideration. In the end I will also share some music on my playlist!

“She is nothing more than crimson red hands that leave marks on her wrists

Or the same hands that leave imprints like battle wounds

Those battle wounds in which gush out what is left of her soul

Slaughtered like some sort of animal.

 

She is nothing more than red hands that slap across her pale, white face

With nothing to be seen then the red fingerprints that linger on her face

Like a branding of some unusual creature.

 

She is the woman you see in the store who always wears a smile on her face

She is the girl who never gives up because she believes in the virtue of every human

She is the woman who gives more than she should

She is a girl who is lost and stuck.

 

He was once the star quarterback who had a promising future

He is the guy who looses his temper

He was the boy who lost it all

He is the guy who sits on the couch doing nothing but living on the elixir of whiskey

He was the guy who said he knew how to treat a woman

He is the guy who looses control for the fear of no control

He is the guy who blames her for everything he has ever lost and what he will loose

His red hands of hate now only define who he will ever be.

 

She looks out the mirror of a house that feels more like a prison

Through the darkness she is still able to see the beauty of life

The moonlight illuminates the night, the stars twinkle, and the crickets sing a

Melodic tune that make it a midsummer dream, whisking her off to another whimsical land.

Through the midst of the woods and the glimmer of the moon, she sees the most striking creature.

“Is that a nightingale?” she asks herself.

She has never seen one in real life; she has only heard that their singing is one of the most glorious sounds one can hear.

She is amazed that this little creature has come upon her windowsill, and started

Singing a melodic tune, that transports her anywhere from where she is.

She needed this nightingale; she needed to remind herself that she could no longer be a victim.

With a twinkle of a star, she packed her bags and sneaked out the door by the very tips of her toes.

Her nightingale was her sanity, her new home, and with the help of her new friend she flew away from the lions nest.

With the moon as her protector and the stars as her guide, she never looked back.”

NYFW Diane von Fürstenburg (Recap)

Screen Shot 2014-10-02 at 1.52.42 PM

Formerly Princess Diane of Fürstenburg, the Belgian born designer is known for the iconic wrap dress. For me, she is known for having some seriously killer style! Her Spring 2015 collection is inspired by the 1950’s French Rivera, which is represented as cheerful and yet simple. I never really enjoy much of runway fashion because it is not practical to wear for the everyday woman, and let’s face it, there are some pretty crazy pieces of clothes out there. (Don’t forget to check out her new show on E! ) I always try to break the looks down and see if  part of the outfit would work in an everyday look. So I will attach the pieces of clothing that seems most practical. So keep an open mind and let your creativity flow. Enjoy!

Au Revoir,

NewBeautyGuru

80’s Throwback

If anyone knows me they know I love the 80’s. (Well almost everyone knows). This post was supposed to be published a while ago, but of course it did not happen. Sorry! I wanted to do this post because I was watching a movie called Just One of the Guys, and I had my next inspiration. I mean, what’s not to love about the 80’s?

If you did not already know 80’s fashion has made quite a comeback in today’s fashion. When someone walks down the street you can pinpoint it. Is it safe to say the 80’s are back? Not quite. It will probably never be the 80’s again, but we can try to make it even better. Enough of this chit chat, let’s move on to the fashion.

 

Screen Shot 2014-08-05 at 5.02.09 PM

Can you smell the 80’s yet? The jean jacket with the studs is 80’s enough, but it does not stop there. Leather shorts and a cool t-shirt…Just take me back already. With fall coming up this could also be a good transition piece. Swap out the leather shorts for leather pants.

Screen Shot 2014-08-05 at 5.05.29 PM

I am sure we all have seen this during the summer. Did you think it was 80’s fashion? Well, it was. High waisted jean shorts were definitely in this summer, and with a simple unused shirt to tie around as a belt, you were tapping into your inner 80’s.

Screen Shot 2014-08-05 at 5.05.57 PM

This is one of my favorite looks, and Cher Lloyd pulls it off with so much edge and grace. I love her little British self! If you did not see the 80’s in her hair, earrings, jacket, shirt, necklace, pants, and bandana, you are blind. Point. Blank. Period. This is also another piece that can transition into the fall, just add more layers as needed. Any of these looks could be easily transitioned into the fall.

 

Anyone miss Saved By the Bell? I know it isn’t really considered 80’s but I miss it.

 

 

Who wants to know what I’ve been listening to?

Country Lovin’

There’s nothing that I love more than a good country concert. It let’s me know that summer is officially here. If you have never been to a country concert,  have you been living under a rock? The atmosphere is just indescribable. Parking lots are full of tailgaters cooking, drinking, and having an incredible time. For most the drinking gets out of hand, but who doesn’t find enjoyment laughing at the drunk guy who can’t produce a single sentence without slurring his words. IDK I just find drunk people at concerts so hilarious. But I have to say out of all the concerts I’ve been to, the people are so much nicer at country concerts. Maybe it’s the alcohol consuming them, but it doesn’t matter, everyone like enjoyable and nice people right?

I’ve been to countless concerts, but unfortunately this year I will probably not be attending any 😦 If only concerts didn’t cost money. The best concerts I’ve been to were probably the ones where I had the best seats and got to meet the performers. I’ve met Drake White (upcoming country artist), Kip Moore, touched hands with Brad Paisley! I was in the sixth row of the Demi Lavato concert with Little Mix and Fifth Harmony and I met Collins Key, what a great and tall guy! Well enough of my bragging 🙂

I think more people need to appreciate country music and stop listening to all that rap! (No offense). But seriously go out and try new things you will not regret it! I will leave you with two country songs that I currently love and have loved I have seen one of these guys in concert where he was amazing. (Chris Young).

Love,

Kissed By Summer

It’s that time of year again…Summer! My summer will be filled with college courses and studying! (Oh what fun that will be!) What a little overachiever I am! Thank gosh it is only two courses, English and Anthropology. But I will be at the University of Connecticut which should be so much fun, I cannot believe I am in college now. Do you know that feeling when you wait for something to happen for so long, and expect it to be so magical and life-changing? Well, that is not quite what I felt or still feel, this whole thing probably has not sunk in yet. Oh well, enough of me and on to the more important things in life. I mean fashion is more important than college of course, right? No? Oh yeah, maybe not but it is pretty close. Also what is important is the campus hotties! College boys… (This is where I start to daydream).

You’re still there right? I got a little distracted. This summer is going to be filled with many floral prints and bright colors. It’s what I absolutely love about the summer. It should also be filled with great music and friends, I’ll be sharing my summer playlist. I feel like I have not been posting any music lately which is such a shame. So you will get your yummy fix of music for the summer. Wonder why I said yummy? I have been saying it randomly lately, so I am just going to go with it. I have some great outfits picked out for anyone’s style, so check them out below!

 

4c7c513aba53e95db8eae6291f0a665a

This outfit now reminds me of something Perrie Edwards from Little Mix would wear. With floral’s being a main focus for Summer 2014, this piece is simple enough that it is not floral roadkill. Have you ever seen those horrible floral prints that remind you of grandma’s furniture? This is something we all could handle.

 

2014-Spring-Summer-Teen-Fashion-Trends

 

California Dreamin’ street chic. This outfit can be put together in just a few minutes. The fringe on the shorts is so cute and gives it that rocker feel. This is an outfit not to be overlooked for the summer, try it out! (Maybe don’t go too short on the shorts though!)

 

 

fashion-2013-summer-for-teens2013-spring-and-summer-teen-fashion-trends---fashion-trend-seeker-ssijmk2a

 

Do I hear the lure of Coachella? Maybe it’s just me. Coachella fashon is sometimes overdone, but this is a look that you can use to build from. Take your favorite band’s t-shirt and some rugged jean shorts, and maybe add a fringe purse, and for a layered look add some bangles on your wrists. There. Plain and simple. You are now ready for Coachella. Well maybe next year!

 

fashion-2013-summer-trends-for-teens-vptwli6h

 

The American Classic, denim. This could definitely be a look for a night out on the town with the girls! An over-sized denim top will make you feel comfy but cool temperature wise. Then as shown in the picture tuck it in to show off the rest of your outfit and add the boho chic-ness to it. All you need is a terrace in NYC and a glass of wine in hand. (If you are legally old enough to do so).

fashion-trends-2013-summer-kdfckwil

 

The preppy-hipster look. Simple dresses like these show your sophistication with style and personality. You can not go wrong with these simple line prints. My personal fav is the one in the middle!

Florals-for-teens-Summer-2014

 

Floral.Floral.Floral. Try these two interchangeable looks, there is just enough floral print so grandma’s furniture does not come to mind. This pic reminds me of Kendall and Kiley Jenner. Right?

 

SS-13-006-SUNSET-BEACH-w-color

 

If it is anything I love about summer it’s the getaways. This dress takes you to a beautiful sunset in Aruba or the Bahamas. Wearing long dresses in the summer is a must on my list. They are just so comfortable and make you look glam instantaneously. I just want to escape in the wonders of this beautiful dress.

Music Playlist

Alexander Wang

 Blogger: NanysKlozet

It seems as though celebrities are always on point with the latest fashion trends. But I’ll let you in on a little secret…the public is in on it too! Some fashionista’s may not be able to afford the designer labels, but heck, I think the knock off’s are always a little better. You don’t need to be rich to have the “rich look”.

In the first photo above, Alexander Wang’s shirt costs a whopping $995, I do not know about you but I am not willing to pay that much for a shirt that will probably be hard to clean and maintain, as it is white. If you have the means to do so, go for it!

This shirt is the perfect pairing for any casual look, while being hipster, with a hint of class. Bloggers, including myself, love this outfit. This is pictured perfectly by NanysKlozet because it is the perfect way to show off our style, while not overdoing it and overwhelming a bunch of people. I also believe that the shirt in the picture is not by Alexander Wang, but I am not sure. Although you can’t really tell a difference. Maybe that’s why it is hard to figure out! lol.

Another trend that I have seen with most celebrities is the #allwhite look. Most notably on Khloe Kardashian, in the same Alexander Wang shirt. All white adds an overall freshness to your outfit, and raises the bar for an understated elegant look. I encourage you to try out this outfit and let me know what you think. Remember it’s not about how much money you have, but the style that can come with it! Fake it until you make it!!

SINCERELY JULES- FASHION BLOGGER OF THE DAY

maje4.jpg_effectedmaje1.jpg_effectedmaje8.jpg_effectedmaje5.jpg_effectedScreen Shot 2014-05-20 at 8.10.15 PM

I am in love with this whole look for spring. Who said fashion can’t be comfy and chic? The clothing may be simple but the accessories give it the extra pizzazz and life to the whole ensemble. I would wear this outfit whenever I get the chance to, it reminds me of where I want to go on vaca this summer. It reminds me of Nashville! Don’t ask lol. I just feel that in Nashville the style is very laid back, but there’s also a twist to anyone’s outfit. I would probably wear this when it is not completely hot out because the jean jacket might make it hotter. Definitely wear this for a cool night out on the town with some friends. But I absolutely j’adore this look. Great look Sincerely Jules!

Prom 2k14

This past Saturday I encountered the best night of my life thus far. PROM!!! If you have ever been to prom you know what I am talking about. I was not expecting it to be so amazing, but I fully embraced the experience. It was a night in “The Phantom of the Opera”. The decor was on point, and there were crystals all over the tables. I even managed to take a centerpiece home and some beautiful champagne glasses. I mean diamonds are a girls best best friend, too bad they were not real! (I would have taken more  🙂 ) lol. I decided to share my night the only way I know how, through the pictures. The night was full of dancing, laughter, and fun! I could not have asked for a better night with wonderful people and good friends. Love you all ❤

Kisses,

NewBeautyGuru

(I went with a chiffon dress because I am a fuller figure, and a girl has got to have her bling so I have those touches throughout. I absolutely loved my purse for the night!) I hope you enjoy and see who I really am through my pics. I think there’s a saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words.”
