5 Year-Old Brother Picks My Outfit

WARNING: The following image may induce the following- bleeding from the eyes, vomiting, and in some extreme cases death.

Okay, obviously I’m joking! But it is pretty painful. Which is part of the reason it took so long for me to post this… Anyway take a look at it. 

IMG_8283
I look so tired and not okay with what I’m wearing. XD

Yeah…. Not the best…. At least with Ethan’s outfit, it was salvageable. But this is a whole new outfit. 🙂 Jonah said he chose a striped shirt and skirt because they “matched”. He chose the leather jacket because it was “cool” (like Ethan). He chose the cowboy boots and red scarf because who knows why…. 

Oh also I didn’t put the boots on because my feet have blisters all over them and it would have been really painful. 🙂 

Outfit details:

Shirt- Thrift Store

Cami- Given to me

Skirt- Some store that I forget the name of

Jacket- Thrift Store

Scarf- Dollarama 

Boots- Given to me 

Well that is it… Sorry that it’s kind of short but oh well. 😦  I have will never again let Jonah pick my outfit. 😀

Summer Liebster Award

Hamlette of Hamlette’s Soliloquy tagged me to do this Liebeter Award (thank you so much!), so here it is!

liebster award 2

Rules:

Acknowledge the blog that gave it to you and display the award. (Done)
Answer the 11 questions that the blogger gives you.  (Answered them. 🙂 )
Give 11 random facts about yourself.  (Yuck, I hate doing that but I did do it…)
Nominate 11 blogs.  (I did this)
Give them 11 questions to answer.  (Also done below.)

Okay here are the questions I was asked! –     

1.  Why did you start blogging?

 

When I was younger and I started getting obsessed with fashion, particularly modest fashion, I looked and looked for awhile for one I loved. One that I could go to for inspiration and such. I found a few but only one that I really loved and it inspired me to start my own! Like I said, I wasn’t able to find many so I figured the world could handle another one more. 😀 
2.  How long have you been blogging?

download (3)

1 year, 6 months, 21 days, and 18 hours! (Or since January 13, 2017) 

3.  What are three of your favorite blog posts you’ve written?

Ooh, I love this question! 

5 Myths About Modesty  – I’m super happy with how this post turned out and I might do a part two. 😉

Both of my “Modestly Styled Gals” – I love having people guest post on my blog. It definitely isn’t just about me. 🙂  

7 Hair Care Tips – I love my hair  and I’m really passionate about having healthy hair, so I really enjoyed sharing tips that I find helpful.

4.  What are three blogs you love to read?

Ruffles and Grace

Love her style and how she’s always modest but still cute. 

beccabeauty

I love reading her blog for inspiration. Especially since she does such amazing eye looks.

Minnie Muse  

She might not always be 100% modest (in my opinion) but she really does have an amazing style. And the quality of her pictures are great!

5.  How has blogging impacted your life?

images (1)

It definitely has helped me to strive to use the few things I have to make something great. I have to be pretty creative since I don’t have the best equipment and editing skills, and since I don’t have tons of clothes.
6.  Do you have multiple blogs?  If so, how many?

Nope. One is enough to keep me busy.
7.  What’s some blogging advice you’ve found to be really helpful?

To post regularly and on a schedule. I haven’t always been able to do this but I have found that when I do do it, it definitely helps.
8.  What’s some blogging advice you’ve heard and ignored?

To open up more to your readers. It’s not that I don’t want to do this, I just don’t really know how to… Also with a few things that are going on in my life I just prefer to stay away from those things. I feel like I’ve created a “safe space” for me where my life is perfect.  😐 But honestly, it’s just my default to be happy and optimistic. 🙂  
9.  What do you really enjoy about blogging?

It really does help me to be creative. I think it’s really important that everyone has a creative outlet. I love fashion and editing pictures so this is really a great way for me to have fun.
10.  What do you not enjoy about blogging?

The fact that I more or less have to rely on one of my sisters to help with blog posts about my outfits. I would prefer to be able to do everything by myself. 😀  
11.  How did you choose your blog’s name?

I really can’t remember. I know that I wanted the word Modest in it, but a lot of the titles were already taken. 😀 So one day it just sort of popped into my head…. 😀 

 

Okay here are 11 random facts about me.-

1.I want to go bungee-jumping.

2.My middle name is Georgel.

3. I’m currently listening to music.

4. I get up at 6:00 almost every morning.

5. I love biking and bike almost every day.

6. I don’t really have a nickname.

7. Last night my younger sister kneed my nose. Yeah, let’s hope she doesn’t read this. 😀 

8. I currently can’t think of another fact. 

9. I thought of a fact but I’ll put it down as number ten.

10. I wear the Star of David necklace (you might have seen it before in other posts) everyday.

11. I have a tea everyday, in the winter though I have at least two. Don’t judge. 😀

I honestly don’t know 11 people to nominate but I’d love to see 

Healthy Simplicity

The Godly Chic Dairies

Maidens For Modesty

do it. 🙂 

Here are my question (I tried to make it a fun list!)- 

1. Do you play any instruments?

2. What is the book you’re currently reading?

 3. What’s your favorite kind of pie?

4. Is there a word you always misspell? 

5. What is something that makes you nostalgic?

6. What’s your version of “There are two types of people in this world”?

7. Least favorite candy?

8. Favorite book to movie adaptation.

9. What color do you associate with the word “cool” (if any)?

11. A piece of technology you have that would be easiest to give up?

My Favorite Fashion Era’s – 1940s

I can usually find at least one trend from each fashion era that I like. But with the 1940s it’s hard to find something that I don’t like! From the hats to the the shoes everything about the 1940s style is elegant and beautiful.

Love the dress, but what I love even more are her shoes! Like how cute are they!? 

I mean if you don’t see what I’m talking about now, you’re blind. 😀 

But seriously, I love how everything looks so feminine and pretty. Even Land Girls looked awesome while doing their jobs.

 Land-Army-Wye-Kent

Ahhhh! I’m just in love with it all!

What’s your favorite fashion era? Also I’m going to turn this into a series so definitely keep a look out for more of these!

My 7 Year-Old Brother Picks My Outfit

Yep, so it’s just what the title says. I didn’t give him any help! 😀 I’m going to show you the outfit first and then share my thoughts.

IMG_8250 5

Okay, my main (and basically only) problem with this outfit is the scarf… It just really, really makes an outfit that I would probably wear, into a outfit that I definitely wouldn’t wear. I did tell him when he was creating the outfit that I didn’t need a scarf, but he said “scarves are cool so you need one”. He also showed me how he wanted me to style the scarf.  😀 

IMG_8255 3

IMG_8256 2

Other then the scarf I would probably where this. The mix of patterns is pretty good, and all the black that shows up throughout the outfit really brings everything together. 

Outfit Details: 

Shirt- Given to me

Cami- Borrowed 

Skirt- Thrift Store

Jacket- Thrift Store

Scarf- Dollor Store…? Not sure

Shoes- Walmart  

 

Please comment below how you think my little bro did. And stayed tuned for part two where my five year-old brother picks my outfit!

Sunday Style #10

Yay! I love Sunday Style posts! The outfit I wore was really summery and is one that I wear probably too much. 😀 Okay so let’s just get on to the outfit.

Sunday Style 12 013

Sunday Style 12 008

Sunday Style 12 010

Sunday Style 12 021

Sunday Style 12 040

Sunday Style 12 068

Sunday Style 12 060

Sunday Style 12 049

Sunday Style 12 039

Like I said, I absolutely love this outfit. The only thing I don’t like is that the shirt is very clingy. 😦 But I can deal with that. I like being able to tie all the little accessories of an outfit together. For instances I used a pink eye-shadow to tie the scarf with the rest of the outfit. I mean it goes with it anyway but adding the pink eye-shadow does help. 🙂 Also I would have loved this even more if I had some nude shoes. I think those would have worked even better then the black.

And yes I curled my hair. But I am still trying very hard to get my hair healthy so I don’t curl it a lot. 😉

Outfit details:

Shirt- Old Navy

Skirt- Given to me

Scarf- Also given to me 😀

Shoes- Also given to me, but can be found at Ardeen 

Bracelets- You guessed it, given to me XD 

I hope you liked this post because I really like doing Sunday Style posts. Comment below if you think having a cute outfit can make you feel more confident. My answer- Yes, absolutely!

Free Sephora Gift – My Thoughts

Did you know that if you sign up with Sephora you get a free birthday gift? I didn’t until a little while ago when my friend told me about it. Sephora is sooo expensive I could never get anything there, but I signed up anyway just to get the birthday gift. 😉 Here’s what I thought about it. 

Okay so first you have to realize that the gift is sample sized. They always have two different things you can pick from. This year it was a lip kit and a skin care set, so I decided on the lip kit since I already have plenty of skin care products. 

001

Okay so in the lip kit was a lip scrub, balm, liner, and the actual lipstick. The lip scrub and balm were meh. Plus the packaging they were in was not the greatest and because of that the lip scrub spilled out. But I did really like the liner and lipstick. They are both easy to apply and are a nice color (at least I like it). It’s very good quality and stays on for a long time.

Overall for a free gift, I’d love a bigger size but it’s great! So if you like lipstick like this one or you just want a free gift from Sephora go sign up! 🙂

Modestly Styled Gals #2 -Rebekah

Today I am having another one of my amazing friends on here to share one of her favorite outfits and her thoughts on modesty.

IMG_7634

Hi everyone! My name is Rebekah. I am a Christian girl who wants to strive to be more like Jesus! I believe the way we dress is just one of the ways we can honor God. Modesty is important because the world cannot see our hearts, but they can see that we want to glorify God with the clothes we choose to wear. I would like to thank Elisabeth Shonhaar for the opportunity to share my thoughts on what modesty means to me! The outfit I am wearing is (in my opinion) perfect for spring, and a great casual outfit! The bell-sleeved blouse is floral, which always screams spring to me! I also love wearing ankle boots in the spring because of the unpredictable spring weather, and I think ankle boots are super cute year-long ! I enjoyed getting to do this! 

~Rebekah
Psalm 37:23-24

– blouse from Walmart 
– denim skirt from Gabe’s (American store) 
– ankle boots from Walmart 
– tights from dollar store 
– small necklace was a gift 

Aww, thank you so much Rebekah for wanting to come on my blog and be a part of it. I’m so glad we were able to do this!  If anyone else would like to do this send me a message at missbeth1897@hotmail.com and we can talk!

Happy May everyone!! I hope you had a great April. Chat with me in the comments and tell me if you have any summer plans I’d also love to hear from you guys what you think of this new series! 🙂

7 Hair Care Tips

Since last summer I’ve been wanting to grow out my hair. Long. Like really long. So I’ve been researching a lot on ways to make it grow faster as well as ways to just get it healthier in general. Here are some tips that I’ve seen, used, and have worked (at least for me).

1. DON’T WASH YOUR HAIR EVERYDAY     

This might sound gross but it really does work. Washing you hair everyday strip’s all the  essential oils from you hair which will leave your hair drier and more prone to breakage. If you wash your hair everyday it might take a couple of weeks to get your hair to not need to be washed everyday but overall it’s definitely worth it.

2. DON’T BRUSH YOUR HAIR AS OFTEN

Brushing your hair a lot definitely leads to more breakage so maybe just brush it once when you get up and once before you go to bed. If your hair is very fine like mine you could probably get away with just combing it.

3. STAY AWAY FROM HEAT

Heating your hair up will dry it out and damage it. Try not to blow dry your hair or use heat styling tools. I know some people put on heat protective sprays before using heat styling tools but I feel like all your doing is putting chemicals on your hair which also isn’t great….

4. USE HAIR MASKS

You can either buy these or make one from things in your house. Trust me Pinterest has tons of recipes. 😉 But yes, I have recently started using a homemade one about once a week and I really do notice a difference, my hair is getting longer and softer. 👍

Another thing I do is about an hour before I take a shower I will put coconut oil on the ends of my hair and that also really helps.

5. WASH YOUR HAIR WITH COLD WATER

This goes back to the stay away from heat, this one really does help my hair but I HATE it! Especially in the winter I’m just like “nope not happening”. I do notice that when I do do this my hair doesn’t frizz as much and it’s shinier.

6. STOP PLAYING WITH YOUR HAIR

The more you play with your hair the more you will get split ends. This one is really hard for me because I’m always twirling my hair. It’s really awful for my hair I know so I am trying to stop…. 

7. DO WHAT WORKS FOR YOUR HAIR

If you have super greasy hair or curly hair the do some research and find out what works for your hair. Generally speaking I think all the things I’ve listed will help with any hair type, but still experiment and see what works for you.                                                 

And that’s it! Obviously my hair isn’t the most amazing thing right now but all these tips are from girls who do have great hair so hopefully my hair will start getting longer and healthier. 🙂 

Thanks for reading everyone. Talk to me in the comments about what you do to care for your hair. Also tell me if you might give any of these tips a shot!

OOTD- Comfy Outfit

This is just a super short post today. The outfit is one I would wear every day if I could! It’s just really comfortable and warm which is a most for me in the winter. 🙂

Outfit details:

Shirt (\Hoodie)- Walmart

Skirt- Thrift Store

Leggings- Walmart

Boots- Giant Tiger

So that’s pretty much it. Like I said, super short post but wanted to share it with y’all because it’s very “me”. I love the color dark green and I love denim skirts so I wear this outfit quite a bit. If you want to see how I switch it up so it doesn’t look the exact same every time I wear it, I’ll do a post about that. 

What’s your favorite kind of outfit and do you like boots? I like these but overall they aren’t really “my thing”.
