Creative Stripes

Hey guys,

So yesterday I spent the day meeting with a very creative group of people that’ll I’ll be working with on a film project. My outfit was cute but it definitely wasn’t impressive. Lol.

And to top it off, it’s been a while since I’ve run laps at the track so my skinny jeans are a bit tighter than usual but my workouts are scheduled to resume tomorrow night because ….I have plans at the olive garden tonight ;)

Have you been on track with your normal fitness routine? The cold holiday season makes staying in shape tough, doesn’t it?

Love,

Niki

Beauty Bandit: Megan Fox Beanie Look

Instagram: MsLoveNiki

Let me just start off by saying, I do NOT look like Megan Fox and I never will. That’s okay with me. The Beauty & Style Thief category is about having fun and recreating looks I like (trying mostly to use things I already own).

There are 3 key things needed to recreate Megan’s look: A beanie, eyebrow powder, and a curling iron. Any color beanie works but I’d definitely like to try this look again with a black one (c’mon pay day!). If you don’t have thick /full eyebrows like Megan, you’re going to want to fill them in. I used a matte dark brown eyeshadow on mine. Thick brows will call attention to your eyes and add glam to this look.

Lastly, time to get your curl on! Part your hair down the middle. Even if a middle part isn’t flattering on you the beanie will hide it and allow you to have even amounts of hair on both side of your face. Using a 1”-2” curling iron, depending on hair length, grab big sections of hair and curl them for about 4 seconds. Separate the curls with your fingers, tousle them a little and….done!

Do you like wearing beanies or hats? And what celeb look would you like to see replicated? You can email me or comment with your suggestions :)

Love,

Pinney house

Sunday afternoon I checked out the Pinney Victorian House. It was built in 1887 as a 30 room hotel. It’s always cool to find hidden treasures like this in your own backyard. And on Saturday I went to the Forever 21 opening I mentioned to you guys, hence the new shorts ;) It Β was such a fun event. All the employees lined up in a tunnel to cheer us on as we entered the store and received a complimentary gift card.

I hope you had a fun weekend! Did you do anything out of the ordinary?

Love,

Niki
