Fab Friday Trend Dissection: White on White

killin' em | via Tumblr

Hey Everyone,

I'm really sorry that I didn't have a post up on Wednesday. I thought I had something scheduled, but apparently I didn't. (grrr). Anyways, today I wanted to do another trend post. If you're a follower of any sort of fashion blog, odds are that you have seen the "all white" trend. 
This has become an incredibly widespread fad for the past spring and current summer season. It seems to be a softer and more "seasonably appropriate" version of an all black outfit, the most classically chic of all fashion. 

Outfit of today :)

While I see why this is such a well loved trend, I don't see myself sporting it. I think it really works well on dark skin, but being slightly paler, I feel like it would wash me out. If you are of a darker skin complexion, I think this trend can be a great way to get dressed fast, perfect for those who find themselves rushing in the morning (and can't spend all day in their pajamas.) Since everything is one color, it doesn't really matter what pieces you pair as they will all look great, (for the most part).

Follow me !!!

What do you think of the all white trend? Have you been sporting it?

Fab Friday Trend Dissection - Graphic Liner

Makeup 💄💖

Hi Everyone

Graphic Liner has been a trend for years now, whether it's based on shape, color, or thickness, we've all come in contact.  This has been seen all over the runway. the red carpet, and even now on the streets for the daring.

Personally, i think the trend is super cool, but is definitely for the edgy and daring and is difficult to pull off, but if you have the courage, go right on ahead.

Wardrobe Wants

Hey Everyone

 I hope you're having a fantastic week so far, I'm really sorry that I've been lacking in blog posts, but I'm getting back into it now. 

I don't know about you guys, but about four times a year (for each season) I go through my wardrobe and get rid of anything I didn't wear over the previous seasons or that I don't see myself wearing again. I personally love this whole process, but I can't stand having a nearly empty wardrobe.

Having a nearly empty wardrobe lets you then really see what you need and then stock up, (I highly suggest making a list). So without any further ado, let's get into my list.

1. Black Tailored Blazer - The classier cousin of the leather jacket. Put it on over absolutely everything.

2. Distressed Skinny Jeans - Need I say more?

3. Short Combat Boots - I have tall ones, but short ones would be nice too.

4. Basic, Well-fitting tees - I've never had a great fitting plain tee. 

5.Simple Flats - Just plain ones to go with everything

6. Black Leggings - because I wear way too many oversized sweaters

Fab Friday: Interview with Tenneil Allmark

Hello Loves,

I need to find a standard photo to use for these interviews, but until then we shall remain photoless. I apologize if it bothers anyone. But photos aside, today I bring another interview! I've had the opportunity to speak with the lovely Tenneil over the past few weeks. She runs the blog Like Neon Love which has been on of my favorites ever since I originally started blogging back in January. (though this blog has only been around since April) 

Anyways, I'm getting off topic, so let's just jump to the interview.

1. What made you want to start your blog/youtube?
I started my first blog back in 2009, which was more arty and music related. It didn’t last long, but when I discovered the world of beauty YouTubers through a LiveJournal friend, I got back into blogging in 2011 and have kept it at ever since. When I saw others blogging about beauty, I thought, ‘Hey, I could do this’, and it’s such a fun, creative outlet for me.
2. What’s the meaning behind your blog name?
At the beginning of the year, I changed my blog name to Like Neon Love, which is taken from my favourite band, Cut Copy, and their album, Bright Like Neon Love. I wanted the whole ‘Bright Like Neon Love’ to be my blog name, but it was taken across all social media platforms and it was a bit too long, anyway. I really love my blog name now.
3. What advice do you have for new bloggers/youtubers?
This is so cliché, but the best thing you can do in all areas of your life, not just in blogging and YouTube, is to simply be yourself. Being like everyone else won’t set you apart from the rest and probably won’t make the blogging experience enjoyable. People can tell whether you’re genuine or not and if you love what you do, people will see that too. I like to think that’s why people read my blog and why I have such lovely blogger friends.
4. How would you describe your style?
I think my style is a mixture between 90s and minimal, but a tinsy bit girly.
5. What are 3 essentials in your wardrobe?
Chelsea boots, denim jacket and black and white basic tees. These three things go with any outfit!
6. Thrifting or buying new?
I’ve tried thrifting or as it’s called in Australia, op shopping, before and I like the idea of it, but I don’t think it’s really me. I don’t have the patience to find those hidden gems - it’s much easier to go shopping when they’re right in front of me! I prefer to buy things new. What I can say, I’m a sucker for those big chain companies.
7. Do you follow trends? If so, what have been your favorites?
I follow trends if I like them and I think they fit in with my style. I’ve been loving this whole 90s revival thing with chunky shoes, “mom” jeans and crop tops.
8. Who are your fashion inspirations?
I take inspiration from everywhere. I think I’m heavily influenced by the music I listen to, the films I watch and just random stuff I see on the Internet. My favourite fashion YouTubers to watch are sunbeamsjess, SianShutterbug and Sarah Hawkinson. If I had to pick a celebrity, it would be Alexa Chung, but I don’t really follow what celebrities wear.
9. How has your style changed since you’ve started blogging?
I think my style is bit more refined now and I generally have a better sense of how I want to dress. I think before blogging, I had an idea of what I wanted my style to be, but could never execute it the way I wanted to present myself.
10. What’s your best fashion advice?
This is a tricky one as I don’t really consider myself a very fashion forward person! I would say trendy or not, wear what you want and don’t bother what anyone else thinks. There are heaps of trends I can’t stand, but no one’s opinion should stop you from wearing what you love. Dress for yourself and feel proud in what you wear. Something as simple as putting an awesome outfit together can be a huge confidence boost and that’s the best thing we can take from fashion.

Fab Fad Friday: Kylie Jenner

kylie jenner .
Hello Lovelies,

(note: I have changed the name of this series to Fab Fad Friday. I mean fad, trend, makes much more sense, don't you think? Let me know your thoughts)

Ah yes, and the Kylie Jenner appreciation posts begin. I don't think I've expressed my love for her yet. I mean let's face it, the girl's flawless.

Kylie is the modern day grunge queen, (well besides the Olsens of course). Her style always looks really laid back and like she doesn't care, yet she still looks absolutely amazing at all times.


And let's face it. Her makeup is beautiful too.

What do you think about Kylie's style?

P.S Happy Fourth!

How I (attempt to) Stay Organized

Scrapbook me

Hello Everyone,

Now I must admit, I'm certainly not the most organized person on the planet. I don't always keep my life perfectly in check and my room isn't always spotless, in fact it's currently a complete disaster area. But messes aside, I still try to keep my blog and internet life in check. Now the tips I'm giving might not work for everyone, so bear that in mind as you read. But, I hope you still enjoy!

1. Keep a daily journal, and write in the morning instead of the night.
I know, almost everyone who keeps a journal writes at night to reflect and recap on their day. I myself did this for months and months. However, I have recently switched to writing in the morning and write about my plans and goals for the day/week. Not only will this get your mind in check for the rest of the day, but you'll be more awake and motivated.

2. Planners are everything. 
and that's an understatement. I tend to write down everything in certain colors. For example, I would write tests and due dates in red, homework in blue, scheduled blog posts in purple, et cetera, et cetera.

3. Keep a blogging notebook
and split it up into sections. This doesn't have to be expensive. In fact, mine is a composition notebook that is divided up with sticky notes. Now these sections can be used however you see fit. Mine is split up into an ideas section for jotting down topics, a section for content or notes for those ideas, and an email section to keep track of replies and conversations.

Overall, it's entirely your choice what you use to (attempt to) stay organized within your life, but I hope these tips help you out,

xoxo Kendall
