What To Wear: Talent Show Edition

It's soon gonna be May, and as far as I'm concerned, a lot of schools are hosting their talent show. Although your performance is much more important than your outfit, you may be stuck on what to wear. Here are my tips.

In case you care, my talent show is next week and I'm in 4 different acts, meaning I have to change 3 times.

-Make sure your outfit is YOU.

-Your outfit doesn't really have to fit the song you're doing.

-If you are in a dance or group performance, make sure you coordinate, although you don't have to match.

-Make sure you feel comfortable in your clothes, especially if you are dancing.

- You shouldn't be dressed too casual, you should be in the middle.

Those were my tips. If you are in a talent show, good luck! Hope I helped you!

Trend Alert: Denim Jackets

Denim jackets are huge this spring! They are the perfect in-between-spring-and-summer jacket. One of my favorite ways to wear them is with dresses: They can ''casuallize'' a dress for school (if that's a word) or make it wearable during colder weather. If you want a statement, buy an oversized jacket (check the men's department) and wear it with leggings. This trend is up to you!

Extremely Simple Nail Tutorial

I've come up with this nail look that I really like. It requires absolutely no skill. This isn't even nail art! It's just something I thought looked very cool and that I wanted to share with you.

I used:

Insta-Dri "Pink Blink"

Nicole by OPI "Rainbow in the S-Kylie"

Top coat

Step 1

Paint your nails a solid color. For this manicure, I used a bubblegum pink as my base, but I did this once with black underneath. Any color can work, though. You'll want this to be pretty opaque.

Step 2

Once the polish has completely dried, apply a multicolored glitter polish over it. You still want to see the color underneath, but you don't want too little glitter on the nail.

Step 3

Finish off with a topcoat.

Here is the finished look:

Sorry for the bad image quality!

Hope you enjoyed this post!

Trend Alert: Hawaiian Shirts

No, this is not a joke.

You may be laughing right now. But, Hawaiian-inspired ''tacky tourist'', over the top shirts are in!

This is NO JOKE. I know you picture an old man wearing this, but by pairing these with a high-waisted bottom, this is actually a really cool ironic look. Make sure NOT to pair this with anything too baggy. Leggings, high-waisted short or skirts and skinny jeans are all that works.

I KNOW I'm crazy, but watch this be your favorite summer look!

Hope you enjoyed!

What's Trending For Summer 2012?

I KNOW summer's far away. But if you're smart, you should start your summer shopping, since stores tend to run out of sizes by the time you need them. So, here's what's in this year!

High-Waisted Shorts:


These are huge for summer! Whether paired with a blouse or a crop top, they are a statement, but nothing too bold.

Vintage Sunglasses;


When you want a subtle statement, retro sunglasses are perfect! Whether they have a floral pattern, are cat-eye, tortoise shell or whatever, every girl needs to have a pair!

Lace shorts:
I'm in a fashion fairy tale ♥

These are perfect for summer! I love the fact that they are old-lady inspired, but still modern. Paired with a pastel colored top like the picture above, this look is perfect!

Mint Jeans:


As you all know, colored jeans are huge, especially mint. I love pairing these with a white top and black flats, the perfect summer look!

Button Dresses:


I love button dresses! These are great for summer because of how soft and pretty they are. Plus, they are classic! They look great in any color and on any body type!

Black ballet flats:


Despite the leaf, basic black ballet flats are a great investment: They go with everything shown in this post, and are classic!

All images from this post are from We Heart It!

So I hope you enjoyed this post and got a brief look on what`s big for summer!

How To Succesfuly Wear A Crop Top!

It's been a while!

So crop tops are in! And I did do a blog post a while ago demonstrating how to wear a crop top, but I realised that the look I demonstrated was a bad idea. So, I found a new way to wear crop tops!

How do you wear this?

First, make sure your top is midlength. By that, I mean it reaches your hip. I normally get size large in tops so that they're longer and baggier, so you can follow my lead!

So, what I do is take a tank top and tuck it into my jeans or pants or whatever. I let my top billow over. I also like wearing crops with high-waisted shorts. That's what I would suggest for a tween girl like myself.

Crop tops are basically all over stores. Material Girl has a lot of great models. Forever 21 has many, too. I love American Apparel's midlength crop tops since they are all one size.

So, I hope you enjoyed this typical Tween Dreams post!

A Brief Overview Of What I've Been Loving In March 2012 (March Favorites)

March is already over, so I just wanted to do a brief March Favorites post.

1. My Material Girl harem pants: I love these things! So comfortable!

2. Kiehl's Blue Herbal Gel Cleanser:Love this! It really clears up my skin!

3. This Blistex lip balm I found: It smells absolutely amazing and makes my lips so soft!

4. Instagram app: I am somewhat addicted to Instagram ( my profile is private)

5. Crop Tops: I know this is kind of general, but I finally found a great way to wear crop tops, so I've been wearing mine often.

That was a brief overview of my March favorites, hope you enjoyed, bye!


I just want to inform you guys that I made a Twitter account for Tween Dreams just talking about tween stuff, so PLEASE FOLLOW!/mytweendreams

UPDATED Skincare Tips!

Hey guys!

So I'm back to blogging regularly! :) Today, I'm going to do one of those classic useful beauty posts! Enjoy!

It is normal you get pimples, it's kind of unavoidable. But, you must take good care of your skin. If you wear makeup, make sure to never, ever ever go to sleep with makeup on. I recommend exfoliating at least once a week. Exfoliating too frequently isn't good. I put some scrub on a toothbrush, that really helps! Also, DRINK PLENTY OF WATER! This isn't important, but I like spraying my face with water in a spray bottle. (my must have!) If you have oily skin, use blotting tissues but MAKE SURE THEY'RE POWDER-FREE! The ones with powder don't work! The most important thing is to cleanse daily.

Hope my tips were helpful!
