We’re perfectionists and need everything to be “Pinterest-worthy.” We spend way too much time on our computers and on Social Media, we’re undateable, but hey – we stylish as F@%!

  2. Their main concern is always the lighting
  3. When eating out, they need at least 13 photos of their food before they eat it
  4. They’ll eventually need a dedicated space for products they’ve been “meaning to blog about”
  5. They’ll want to try a million new recipe or DIY project every weekend
  6. Explaining what they do for a living to people over the age of 30 is frustrating
  7. Social Media needs to know before you do
  8. You’ll become their photographer for OOTD’s
  9. and they’ll rely on you to capture some cute candid shots
  10. They’ll make reference to other Bloggers as if you know who they are
  11. They’ll spend way too much money on beauty products that other Bloggers rave about
  12. and they’ll spend way too much on clothes that they saw on people at Fashion Week
  13. Get ready to be criticised on your choice of clothing
  14. Snapping the perfect flatlay is an essential part of every day
  15. Kissing becomes a problem because there are just too many rad lipsticks that they wear

You’re about to discover some new music right here. Get ready to be introduced to your new favorite tracks by the one and only Ta-Ku.

Reppin’ those electronic sounds all the way from Australia, Ta-Ku is a one of a kind artist that you need to get on right now… maybe after you read this.

If you you’ve caught the love bug (or the complete opposite), Ta-Ku has an album that will surely vibe with you. This true artist has creatively made albums where even the titles tell a story. ‘Songs To Break Up To’ and ‘Songs To Make Up To’ are both beautifully crafted records that will be on repeat for days.

If you’re really into chilled out beats to soundtrack your life (and let’s face it, who isn’t?), then you can’t fail with literally any album by Ta-Ku. Whether you’re feeling inspired – ‘Do What You Love’ will be your go-to tracks. Or if you’re homesick, ‘Latenyc’ becomes your favorite kind of company – mellow and nostalgic.

Where can you find Ta-Ku? Listen to him on Spotify or Soundcloud 🎧

FASHION TALK FRIDAY: Stripes or plaid?

Both are stylish and fashionable. Both are timeless and classic. They’re versatile and seriously everyone looks good in both prints. But, which do you prefer?

Are you more of a chic stripes wearer or an edgy plaid girl?

All the Bloggers can’t get enough of both stripes and plaid because they give off that effortlessly casual chic look that we all want to embrace. Both are awesome to wear during any season, whether it’s Summer or Winter. So, which do you wear more?


Photo from Pinterest

The timeless stripes can be found in different styles, so you’re bound to find some sort of striped piece that you just love. The striped tee is one of the most versatile clothing staple that we all need in our wardrobe – guys and girls. Speaking of clothing that is both versatile and should be a wardrobe staple, stripes come in all different designs, so whether you’re more into button down’s, structured blazer’s or striped skirts, there’s something out there for you and your wardrobe.

Forget the misconception that horizontal stripes make you look ‘fat’. If you want to rock stripes, then do it. Do it and wear it with confidence!

Plaid will never go out of style. It’s been around forever and it’s not disappearing anytime soon. If you’re trying to achieve a laid-back and grungy look, or you’re channeling your inner fashion-forward school uniform, plaid will go perfectly.


Photo from Tokyo Fashion

It’s the perfect pop of pattern with any minimal outfit and, like stripes, comes in endless styles. A pleated skirt for a cute ‘girl power’ look paired with a plain tee and some chunky booties, or a light plaid coat simply paired with blue jeans, a white tee and strappy heels – you can’t go wrong with styling!

So… Have you decided on what you’re wearing today?

Fashion Talk Friday: All About that MESH

mesh 1

Fashion Talk Friday is back! This time I wanted to talk about a trend that has been around for about a year but hasn’t been fully tamped into. More and more people have been wearing it. You guessed it…mesh!! This may seem like a trend that should have stayed behind back in the day but it’s one that has comeback with fierceness and will be sticking around from now on until most likely after this upcoming spring and summer seasons. I wouldn’t be surprised if you were to see mesh detailing,perforated mesh, play on textures and garments at highly anticipated fashion shows of New York Fashion week. The New York Fashion Week begins soon in February, don’t be caught out of the loop gals. This fabric is very versatile and can be incorporated in a lot of different clothing. Whether your working out, looking for a cute office outfit or going out with the girls you will be able to utilize this trend to your needs. If you thought this trend would only work for warmer whether you might have been right but then again fashion and style is all about pushing boundaries and now a days anything is possible with enough innovative thinking. This trend can and will work in winter weather as well. Don’t believe me? Keep reading to find out. Some ways you can wear it is by laying pieces underneath it, wearing big warm coats over it, or in a perforated style (thicker mesh). Rita Ora even posted to her Instagram these photos below about 8 months ago showing off her collaboration with Adidas with a mesh detailed  hoodie and sweats.

A lot of collections have featured mesh and plenty of celebrities have rocked looks with mesh pieces of clothing.

This look is here to stay, I would catch on to this and rock my ass off out doing all the other basic bitches out there. Even Queen B and her sis as seen below have rocked this trend along with the likes of fashionistas like Alexa Chung, Rita Ora, Bad girl “riri” Rihanna and the Jenner sisters. This trend is steppin up…so why don’t you too?

This white two piece ensemble is so perf! Gotta love the chic perforated mesh detailing.

rihanna

Everyone remembers last year when Rihanna went to Paris Fashion week. She definitely helped build the mesh trend and caused a scene in this top with no bra underneath. Are you willing to try the daring look out? …or maybe stick with a bralette under.

Rita Ora looks stunningly hardcore in this completely mesh skirt. Can you say DAMNNN?!
