Little Black Dress | Italy Inspired

Hello Everybody!
I haven't posted in quite a while, and to be honest, I have missed it. I have been enjoying these sort of lazy days, even though work has been killing me lately. BUT, anyways I hit the streets of what could have been the closest thing to Italy as I will get in a while. This place was so pretty and so Italian looking that I decided to get out my favorite little black dress out and show it to you all, but most importantly, I just had some fun! 
I absolutely love this dress and the way it is shaped. Sort of peplum top-ish and I love peplum tops.
No need to over due the accessories because this dress was so clean and simple and already had the collar, that I just added a bracelet. I hope that you enjoy the pics!

I had a lot of fun taking these pictures. Even though I was a little embarrassed when people would see us taking pictures, but I didn't mind at the end!

Hope you all have a wonderful week and I hope to be posting more often

Until Next Time,

New Hair | Blonde & Brown

Hello Everyone!!
So today, on my lovely day off I decided to head over to the hair salon and get a bit of a makeover. Now along while back I had my hair ombre and I loved it! This is what my hair looked like a long time ago: 
I loved it, but taking care of it was hard and with time I sort of got tired of it. But today, I wanted to have that blonde back in my hair but in a bit of a different way. So instead of having just the bottom half of my hair blonde again I went for a more "natural" flowing color that mixed it with my brown hair. I also got a trim and some long layers. I love this new look and it makes me feel happier. I liked the normal brown hair but I felt like I needed a change! I was very happy with the results and I am glad that I went for a change. Change is good.  And this is a new summer look because I am finally finished with this brutal semester of sophomore year in college! So here a few pictures I took of my new hair. 
Hope you like it!! :)

Hope you have an amazing day and I will see you lovely readers next time!!

Daily Essentials | My Favs.

Hello Everybody!
So I decided to start a new little section in my blog called "Maria's Essentials". It is going to be random things, outfits, make up or just the daily essentials for a specific day. I started a couple of weeks ago on Instagram and decided to put them on my blog also.  I love putting all of these little pictures together I don't know why. It is just so much fun and I love being able to take these pictures, edit them and make them look cool. I am still learning how to make them look better so be patient with me when it comes to quality. I will post the most recents up top and the older ones lower just to show that I am learning to make them better Ha ha! I will be making a page where I post all of these at the top in the Navigation bar so you can take a look at them whenever you want!! 
Hope you like it! 
Hope you enjoyed this and make sure to come back and check the Maria's Essentials page at the top!

Bye Loves,

Hair & Make Up | Prom Influenced

Hello Everyone!
So If you scroll a little bit down, you will see that my last post consisted of a prom inspired hair. This post is all about hair AND make up! 
This make up consisted of a lot of contouring under the eyes to the temples of my cheeks.  Then with some light bronzer I highlighted right under the cheekbones and around the hairline. I decided to keep it simple and do some cat eyes, and no eyeshadow. For the lips, I just did a light pink lipgloss. I kept the make up soft and simple, just like to give the whole look a natural look. 

The hair!! For the hair it was very simple! I just put a headband on (on top of the hair) and grabbed the loose hair and just kept tucking it into the headband. I tucked a lot just to keep it tight! It gave the look sort of a 1920s look which I am OBSESSED with! This is such a fun and flirty look for any occasion really. Prom or even a nice date :). This is one of my favorite looks just because it's more on the softer side. 
Hope you like it!
And that's it!
I love doing things like this and finding new make up styles. 
Have fun with whatever you do!

Have an AMAZING week!!
'Until Next Time

Hairstyles | Prom Inspired

Hello Everybody!
So I know its prom season and wanted to show you one of my favorite and very easy hairstyles! A lot of high school girls have been coming into work to buy their accessories and having no idea what to do with their hair. I love being able to help them find their jewelry and give them advise on hair, so it gave me and idea for this post.  
I know back when I went to prom  I did something like this. I didn't really have the money to go to a hair dressers and have them do my hair so I had to improvise. I don't really know what to call this hairstyle, maybe a "Twisty- Curly do?" yeah. That will do. I always love finding new hairstyles and maybe this will give you some ideas for prom hairstyles. 
Hope you like it!
And yes, that is one of my old prom dresses I am wearing. (:

It is really simple!! And I did film a "How-To" video, but I am not sure if I should upload it. 
I am always so self conscious about everything. But I'll think about it!

To all the lovely people headed to prom-
Have fun and behave!
Make these memories count because they will be gone in a flash!

Until Next Time Loves!!
