So youre 23 and Married...

I've been on facebook a lot lately. Not by choice, but from pure boredom. This week I have been of from school and I've only worked once this week. Anyways, I keep seeing these two blogger's post about marriage and being 23. It's really annoying. Everyone keeps posting their opinions stating why they are right or why they are wrong. Who honestly cares! Different people have different things that they believe they should accomplish before they get married! Your bucket list may not be the same as the next person. Just because someone was married before 23 does not mean that they are inexperienced. Some 16 year olds have experienced more than I have and I am 21 years old. Before I get too deep I should state my point. Everyone is different. We are from different parts of the world and have different cultures. Life experiences that one 23 year old could have could be experiences that another 23 year old will never experience ever. So don't feel bad if you were married before the age of 23. Remember IT'S YOUR LIFE!
And no I am not married or engaged and I do not plan on it for a long time. Some of my friends are married and were married before 23 it's their choice. Who cares.

DIY Wonder Woman Halloween Costume

This past Halloween I took on Wonder Woman! It was by far my favorite costume I have ever worn! It was so comfy and I didn't have to worry about not being able to dance the night away.
 All this costume took was a quick trip to Michaels Craft Store and some time. I did procrastinate for Halloween which I think everyone does. 

Materials Purchased:
Michaels Craft Store:
1 1/2 yards of Red Satin
1 yard of White and Blue Satin 
{these were also on sale}
White Thread
White Felt
Dick's Sporting Good's:
Blue Volleyball spandex
Hot Topic:
Wonder Woman Corset w/ Accessories

 The next step was to sew my cape. I used a sewing machine, but you could do it by hand if you had enough time. I didn't use a pattern I kind of just winged it and it turned out fine. Especially for something that you are most likely only going to wear one time. I do suggest that if you are going to comicon or somewhere that you make a paper pattern.
I first layed my red satin out and cut a semi circle out of it.

{It should look something like this}
After my red semi circle was cut out I cut a smaller semi cirlce out of the flat side for a neck hole.
I then took my blue and white satin and cut it into half of a semi circle.
{it should look like the blue piece here}
I made my sections smaller so I could have more detail.
I then started with the red piece and sewed my first blue piece onto it. Make sure that your nice side is facing eachother. This is to ensure that the nice side will show when you wear your cape. After you sew your first shapes together you need to proceed and sew the rest together.
After my cape was all pieced together I sewed a "flap" to thread my ribbon through the neck line.
Once I finished sewing my cape and threading my ribbon I cut out stars out of white felt. I then tacked these stars on. I also used theses felt stars on my shorts. I purchased my blue shorts from Dick's Sporting Goods. I believe they are Volleyball Spandex.
After all of my stars were tacked on I added plastic jewels in the center. You do not have to do this, but I love bling! 

My corset was purchased from Hot Topic! It also came with my arm cuffs and headband.
What were you for Halloween?

Looks to Rock: The Cat Eye Sunnies

My latest obsession is my Steve Madden tortoise shell, cat eye sunnies! I recently purchased these from Gordman's and I was totally shocked. I caught them out of my peripheral and had to have them especially with the price of $12.99. I am all about style on a budget. I had been searching all year for the perfect cat eye sunglasses. Whether its the winged cat eye liner or cat eye sunglasses I will be definitely rocking this look this season. Whats your look to rock this season?

Tis The Season...

OMG, school has been so stressful lately that I haven't been able to even think about blogging. Although, I have posted on Beauty and the Badge. Check that out if you wish. Back to business...I am so excited for the Holiday season! It just makes everything feel better. What are your plans for this upcoming holiday season? Are you traveling or staying home with your family?
 Today I started the long haul of putting up my decorations in my room. Yes, I am aware that it isn't even Thanksgiving yet, but come on I love decorating and plus my tree is going to be super cute! Yesterday I went to Hobby Lobby and all of their Christmas decorations were 50% off. I couldn't help myself! Here are just a few of the decorations that I purchased! 

{Cama's shopping cart}

{the process has begun!}
They are so adorable and yes my tree topper is a princess crown! My tree theme is just going along with the theme in my room which is pink/black/white damask. Love it! What do you guys think?
