Fall’s Here?

Yeah, no, it’s not Fall. Fall has come and gone for me. So far it’s snowed twice. Well it was just flurries but still. So here is probably the only Fall looking outfit you’ll get. 😀 Hopefully not but we shall see. 🙂

This outfit is sort of dressy casual because I did wear it to my mid-week church service. It’s an outfit that would be really easy to dress up or down. I dressed it up with wedges, fancy-ish jewelry, and my hair and makeup helped. 😉 

I love the burgundy colour of the shirt. And the skirt, which I just recently bought, is lovely. I’m not completely in love with how the colours in both of my shirts go together but it’s all I had to work with so oh well. 

Outfit Details:

Shirt- Cosco

Over-shirt- Thrift Store

Skirt- Ardene

Shoes- Ardene

Choker- Walmart 

And there is the outfit. Thank you for reading and comment what your favourite season is. I do like Fall when it actually looks and feels like it.

Movies I’m Always Down To Watch

And here we are again with another post that has nothing to do with fashion. 😀 Don’t get me wrong I like breaking it up a bit. But if I’m being totally honest I’m just doing a post like this because it doesn’t require me to go outside…. Yes that’s right, it’s only September and I have long sleeves, leggings and socks. in my opinion that’s messed up… 😐

Anyway, moving on to the post. These are in no particular order.

1.  THE ANNE MOVIES

anne

These movies are so nostalgic for me and I love them sooooo much! The music is epic and they’re great for relaxing (which is what I really need right now because my cat looks like it’s about to pounce on me which is freaking me out!). 

2. TO CATCH A THIEF 

thief

This has been a favourite movie of mine for awhile now. I’m not sure why I just like watching it if I don’t want to think. Plus the costumes are divine. 

3. THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO (the 2002 one)

count of monte

Yeah don’t ask. this one just kind of latched unto me. 😀 I went into this movie thinking I wouldn’t like it but I (obviously) ended up loving it!

4. NAPOLEON DYNAMITE   

auggg

And on a very different note we have Napoleon Dynamite…  For awhile I had wanted to watch a movie that made me laugh, like die laughing. Are friends lent us this (thank you 😉 ) and I laughed so hard!! I didn’t die thank goodness but really it was hilarious! And my younger sister can do a spot on impression of Napoleon. #mostquoteablemovieever

 

Well there you go! Hope you enjoyed this little list. I’m sure there will be more posts like this in the future because I am very anti-cold. 🙂 

What movies are you always down to watch??? Also if you know any good (clean) comedies please tell me. 😀

My Everyday Makeup

I tend to experiment a lot when it comes to makeup because I find it so fun to play around with it. But if I’m just quickly doing my makeup this is what I do. (If I’m hurrying it will take me ten to fifteen minutes.)

I switch up my eye-shadow everyday to match what I’m wearing but I’ll just do light browns and such if I don’t feel like doing something fancier.

39905946_327105404499458_5391477385881190400_n

To do the eye look I used a light pink and then transitioned to brown. I then put white in the inner corner to make my eyes look awake. 😀 I used a black eyeliner pen and put the tiniest bit on, (I find when I outline my entire eye it’s a pretty intense look).  And I finished of with mascara of course.

The pictures don’t show it very clearly. I realized after I had taken them and everything that a filter had been on which made my skin look airbrushed. But here’s the list of products I used.

Foundation // Covergirl liquid foundation (510 classic ivory)

Bronzer // Mary Kay (light medium [I think])

Eyebrows // Mary Kay (classic blond)

Eyeshadow(s) // Wet ‘n Wild (there’s no particular name for them…)

Liquid Eyeliner Pen // Mary Kay (Black)

Mascara // Maybelline Colossal Volum’ Express (Glam Black [lol])

Thanks for reading! What’s your go to makeup look? Have any tips you’d like to share with me?

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)?

10. Favorite Pixar movie?

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

 

Okay, thank you again Hamlette for tagging me! I am sorry I didn’t tag many people but if you want to do this just do it and you can say I tagged you. 😀

Did any of my “facts” or answers surprise you? Do you agree or disagree with anything I said? Do you want to do this tag?

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. 

002.JPG

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! 🙂
