The First Serious Make-Up Tutorial in the History of Tween Dreams!

I don't believe I'm actually doing a make-up tutorial. Who would've thought little Roxanne would ever be doing a make up tutorial! Haha, I'm taking this too far.

Anyways, this is just a very, very light, everyday tutorial that I use daily.
So here it goes:

Taking an eyeliner, (any color that suits your eye color) line your water line.

Using a mascara, (I personally like Illegal Lenghts) well, apply mascara.

Curl your eyelashes using an eyelash curler (pretty self-explanatory)

If you want, you can add lip gloss.

And you're done!

Oh god, I suck at makeup tutorials. Sorry.

Anyways, hope you enjoyed this.


Winter Trendz

Hehe, I like the "z" at the end of "trends"

Okay, I am like SO DAMN PISSED OFF AT MYSELF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Last update post, I said I'll never slack ever again and look at me now. It's been 3 months!!!! Anyways, I really really think I'm due for a post, so today, I'll update you on winter's trends.

Camo: Camo is HUGE this winter. Whether it's t-shirts, jackets, sweatshirts or even jeans, it's def a trend this year.

Sweatshirts: I mean, seriously. Who doesn't love a decent sweatshirt. No matter what print or color, these will never go out. (P-S, does anyone have a better word for this because I kind of hate the word "sweatshirt"

Plaid: I am really happy about this. I feel a revival of the plaid skirt coming, and you have no idea how happy I am about this. Also, plaid shirts are still huge, especially when embellished with studs.

This was my first post in forever, kind of like the "rebirth of Tween Dreams"
Haha, hope this was helpful

August & September Favorites

Today I'm gonna combine 2 months and FINALLY do my August favourites, as well as my September favorites. Now that I'm in school, it's easier to keep track of products.

1. Rosebud lip balm: I had this a while ago, and I lost it, but now I found it again and I LOVE IT!!! 

2. Spectro cleanser: This is an amazing cleanser, I would recommend it.

3. Sweaters: Now that it's getting colder, I've been getting a lot of mileage out of my sweater collection. 

4. Tumblr: I've developed a tiny Tumblr addiction. See my other blog posts to view my Tumblr

5. Twitter: I've also regained my Twitter addiction and that's kind of terrible.

6. My bunny iPod case: I've only had it for a week, but it already has made my favourites for this month.

7. OPI Mini Neon Collection: This is more of an August favourite, but these nail polishes, OH MY GOD!

8. Songza: In late August, I had an addiction to Songza. It went away, but now it's back

My favourite songs this month:

"Gold Forever" by The Wanted: I'm personally not much of a fan of The Wanted, but I discovered this song on Songza and I really like it

"Marvins Room" by Drake: I know I'm a little late on this song, but oh my God it's amazing!!!

"Pyramids" by Frank Ocean: This is such a great song! I've been listening to it a lot lately!

"Live While We're Young" by One Direction: I could not have not mentioned this song! I think it may be every girl's favourite song right now, but I absoloutely love it! I think it might be my favorite One Direction song (maybe because it's the only one that I haven't played a million times yet?)

Anyways, these were my August and September favourites, I hope they were helpful!

Galaxy Print Is In

I have an obsession with the galaxy print. It's cray. I love it!

This trend is seen very often on Tumblr and stuff. I really think it's perfect: it's a great pattern to wear because it's not too loud, but still makes a statement. This looks especially good when paired with black. I actually haven't seen this in stores yet, but I'm sure stores will carry the trend soon.

Hope you enjoyed this brief post! Bye!

A Very Brief Yet Not So Brief Update On Tween Dreams

Oh lord.

It's been an inexcusable amount of time. I haven't been on here for a MONTH! And I only did very few posts this summer. What happened to blogging daily? I thought I was cool. Aha that has nothing to do with anything.

Anyways, the reason why I took a break is because of how uninspired I was. It's really sad to think that I used to be so consistent with blogging and now I'm not. I will promise to post more often. I know I always say that but I will. I was really in a rut with blog posts, I feel like I covered every subject. But I didn't. There is still much, much more to come.

Also, I may have not been on this blog as often, but I HAVE been on Tumblr. I started doing blog posts there on just non fashion related things related to my fellow tweens. This is still my fashion blog though. I'll post on both blogs.

That wasn't a brief update. I will try not to slack ever again.

Oh and in case you didn't see my post where I talk about this, here's my Tumblr:

Trend Alert: Studs

This fall, studs are huge! At stores like Zara, every new item is studded. But, this season, the punky trend gets an upgrade. Sure, you expect to see studs on edgier pieces, like leather jackets, but what's very huge this year is more unexpected items like studded shorts, (easy summer-to-fall transition) studded denim jackets and studded ballet flats. Like all trends, there are rules: only wear one studded item per outfit! Too many studs looks way too trying. 

So, yeah that was my very brief blog post, hope you enjoyed!

4 Ways To Wear: Floral Shorts

Floral shorts are huge right now! I think they are a perfect summer look that can easily be transferred into fall. You may have seen the outfit I posted on Tween Dreams' Instagram (which I just made yesterday and the username is tweendreams) where I questioned ho to wear floral shorts, but now I have come up with a whole 4 ways to wear!

Way #1: I know this is the obvious choice, but pairing a pair of bright floral shorts with a solid, subtle tank top can NEVER go wrong.

Way #2: If you're still into the basics but want a more trendy look, you can try pairing the shorts with a button-down. Sleeveless button downs are my favorite for the summer.

Way #3: For a very cool late summer to early fall look, try this: pair floral shorts with a tank top and a cardigan or blazer. The cardigan or blazer or whatever jacket you choose will make the look mature, but the shorts will keep it fun.

Way #4: I really love the combination of floral and denim. A pair of floral shorts and a denim shirt, jacket or vest is a perfect look!

Hope my tips were helpful, and I hope you enjoyed this post!
