Beauty, Fashion, Confidence.

So not too long ago I posted my fashion farewell. But I have decided to continue doing my blog anyway because I actually enjoy it and its amazing that I’ve connected with other people from around the country who share the same passion. Now I”m excited! I can actually put more of MY pictures on here. Woohoo(:

Check out my youtube channel!



To all my followers here on my blog, I thought I should inform you that I there will not be any more posts from Pretty Passions. For those who didn’t know, I took  this blogging class in school and it is the end of the semester. I really enjoyed sharing my fashion and beauty tips and ideas with everyone and I also enjoyed reading yours. But don’t be sad! I also have a you-tube channel that I just started on beauty and fashion. So instead of blogging, I’ll be vlogging! Makeup and clothes and such will always be a big passion of mine and I don’t plan on letting it go anytime soon. I just have to let go of my blog. Maybe I will continue doing more posts in the future as I strive for college in the cosmetology field. Or even before then to tell you all about my journey  Thank you so much for understanding and even reading my blog! It really means a lot to me. Take care!

With much love,

Tis the season! To get this week’s nails, all your going to need for colors are red and white. Santa hats! So the first step is to make the triangular shape of the red hat. Starting at the bottom corners of your nails and coming to a point in the middle ot a little bit past the middle. After that dries, take your white and make a little white dot of the pom pom on the top of the triangle and then little white puffs at the bottom for the fuzz. And done! Here is the finished look:


A late fall trend that I’ve noticed is leather jackets. I love leather jackets. They can be red, black, brown or tan and their adorable. Well most anyway. Leather Jackets almost give your that bad ass look without doing a single thing. They are also sexy or even cute. Usually colors are associated with the emotion. Black means tough, red means sexy and tan or brown is cute. You can match the jacket with boots, scarves or even jewelry. I am a personal fan of shorter leather jackets. I think they’re more trendy. Take a look(:


See what I’m saying? Add a cute tank top, skinny jeans, boots and jewelry or a scarf. Good to go!

You can get leather jackets at some department stores, places like Macy’s, Deb, JCPenny ect. Heres a place that has really cute ones.

For those who think that red lipstick is risky, I agree. However I also think it is a great risk to take. As long as you know how to wear it, then do it. Who knows how to wear it?

Red lipstick looks great with a very light color like that beige-oatmeal shade or white. Along with red, black, and the classic black and white stripes. Sometimes white and grey but it really depends on the outfit. Blonde hair, blue eyes and red lips. Stunning. But the red with dark hair is gorgeous as well.

When I wear red lipstick, I am super careful. Because some how I always seem to find a way to smudge it off my lips and then it stains me skin. Have the same issue? Well I found a solution. To stop that feathering, apply chapstick a little on and around your lips. The lipstick wont cling to the chapstick on your skin. Still smear it? Whipe off the chapstick and lip stick together. It should all work out smoothly.

Okay so this weeks easy manicure is simply adorable! Who doesn’t love a cute little panda? The only colors you will need are black and white. Detail brushes for nails or detail pens would make this look a lot easier to achieve but if you do not have these, you can substitute them with a toothpick. So first you are going to take you white nail polish and about half way on you nail, make a curved line with the arc pointed towards your cutical. Paint the bottom half of the arch white. After that dries, take your black nail polish and make two little circles on the top of the arc about 1/4 in and 3/4 in. These are the ears. Next make two bigger black circles for the eyes a little bit closer together than the ears. Then do one more teeny tiny black dot below the eyes, in the middle. That is the nose. After your black dries, take a little bit more of the white and put a dot on each eye towards the bottom going in the direction of the nose. And your done!

Once known as a small accessory has turned big. Chunky, gaudy rings are in, especially in the spring. Flowers seem to be the most common design found. I’ve also seen dragons, bugs, tigers, owls, suns, birds, and simple swirls. There are slightly smaller rings and there are huge rings. They make a great accessory, especially when they match your earrings. So cute! Take a look:
