Starting freesshhhh

How in the world has it been two years since I've been on my blog?? Wow, I'm the worst.

Today. Today. TODAY.  Is my start-over. Staring fresh. New header. New posts. New Lizzie? What!

Anyways, this very day, I am redoing my blog and am going to stay active this time. I promise.

So what has Lizzie been up to? Lizzie has been on a wonderful adventure that took her to the beautiful Orange County, California for residency where I was lucky enough to work on some wonderful television shows and movies and wow. My life was cray there for a sec. Now it's boring again. <----- That is a lie tbh. I'm on another adventure, one to live my dream as a writer and social media enthusiast (is that a thing? please tell me it is). This post is all over the place, I'm sorry!! I'm rusty.

Fashion has always been a huge passion of mine and so this blog is going to have LOTS of fashion stuffz. I hope everyone wants to see that, because it's happening. Also, I just made a fashion instagram (@herstylesaysitall) so click the follow button if you want and join me on my new adventure. <3 xoxoxo

P.S pleaasseee tell me how everyone has been! I've missed the blogging community tremendously!

Dress up dress down

Hello Lovelies! 


Sometimes we find ourselves in last minute situations desperate for a dress. Everyone has been there. Whether the cute guy in your history class invited you out last minute, or you forgot to pack a dress for your vacation, it is a valuable skill to be able to dress up anything. 

Below are some examples I created a Polyvore (side note, if you love fashion and don't know what Polyvore is, go there now and thank me later) that dress up a particular item and dress down that same item... I hope you all can find these helpful and save you in a time of need. 






XOXO always

How to spot a real Louis Vuitton







This last week I have spent many hours on Ebay researching the Keepall B 45, my  dream luggage. I have done research after research on this topic in hopes to purchase an authentic one and if it's any consolation, I still haven't made a purchase. It takes a lot of time and energy to go through and compare bags to originals but here are some tips that will hopefully help you, as they have me! 



In this day and age, counterfeit Louis Vuitton bags are all over the place. Not only that, but the work put into counterfeiting has increased tremendously and it can be really hard to tell if you have an authentic bag. 



1 - "D" rings. Authentic Louis Vuitton uses "D" rings a lot and are probably the most common ring used on the bags. 

2 - If it is an older bag, (before the early 90's), the "f" in france, will be LOWERCASE.  In the newer bags, the "F" is capitalized. 

3 - If anywhere on the bag, (luggage tage, stamp, etc) it solely says 'Louis Vuitton', it is not legitimate. A bag will always say 'LOUIS VUITTON, PARIS, made in france, or something along those lines. Also something to be aware of is Louis Vuitton DID make purses elsewhere. Their is a Louis Vuitton line from the USA, and Spain as well. 

4 - Know the product. Check on the actual Louis Vuitton site to make sure the product is actually a product. For example, Louis Vuitton never made a multicolor backpack. 

5 - The font on the stamp is important and if the two T's on Vuitton touch, the bag is not authentic. Also the "O' on Louis, need to be almost perfectly rounded. 

6 - Stitching. The stitching on the bag is VERY important. Louis Vuitton is a high quality name and no authentic bag will have backstitching, stitching from the outside of the bag running through the inside, uneven stitching or anything else that looks low quality. Also, all Louis Vuitton items will have yellow threading coated in beeswax. 

7 - Check out the monogram placement on bag. the LV will always line up and most of the time the logo will be in the middle down the bag, between the two handles. However, there are a few exceptions to his (A couple of the Keepall's and a few others)

All of this being said, the most important thing to remember is that Louis Vuitton is a top notch brand and wouldn't make anything less, so if a bag or wallet seems cheap, it's fake, 

Another thing to be aware of is that these are tips mostly for purchasing online. Most of the bags on Ebay are fake, and if they claim to be from an "outlet" or something along those lines, they are also fake. Purchasing through Louis Vuitton is the only way to confirm 100% that the bag is authentic. 

Love you all! Don't get scammed (: xoxo

Contacts or glasses?

Good morning Lovelies!

In the time that I have been M.I.A, a few things have changed in my life. I have a very cute and sweet boyfriend, I have started dancing again, I started a different job (bye Starbucks), and I switched out my big black frames for contacts! I guess looking back, my life has changed more than I realized, but certainly in a better direction.

That being said, I have come to the conclusion that contacts have indeed been better than glasses and below is why!

1 - Contacts are easy once you figure out YOUR way to put them in and take them out. I can't even tell you how many Youtube videos I've watched on those two subjects, but I can tell you that none of those worked for me. I realized that everyone has there own way of doing it and it's the best way for each of us.

2 - You can't feel contacts. Glasses move around on your face and you have to consistantly push them up. Which being completely honest, doesn't bug me but it might be an issues for others.

3 - Contacts give you better peripheral. If you look to your far left or far right wearing glasses, it becomes apparent how bad your vision is without them. With contacts in, they cover all the bases and you're only reminded of your terrible vision when you take them out.

4 - Sunglasses. I know there are tons of options out there for prescription sunglasses and all of that, but what if you go to Target and find a cute pair there that you want to buy on the spot? I needed that sort of freedom in my life, and I will tell you that the day after getting contacts, I did that very thing and it was everything I'd ever hoped it would be.

5 - Rollercoasters! I don't know about anyone else, but wearing glasses to amusement parks has always scared me. It strikes a new kind of fear into you when you realize that your vision could fly off your face at any twist or turn, and it also strikes a new kind of fear into you when you ride rides blind. That I will tell you, makes the rides a whole lot more thrilling and not necessarily in a good way. I haven't been to any amusement parks since getting contacts, but I am certain I will be able to go without having those fears in the back of my mind.

6 - You can wear eyelash extensions or falsies better! I have been slightly envious of those people with naturally long eyeslashes since mine are so short you can't even tell I have eyelashes without mascara on, so I am finally getting the eyelash extensions that I have dreamed about for a while now and I couldn't be more excited!

7 - Confidence. Wearing contacts has made me more confident. I truly never had a problem with glasses, I felt like they looked fine on me but having contacts just gives you new freedom and new confidence. It's a good feeling.




Remember that underneath it all, looks isn't what it's about. You can enjoy all of those things with contacts or glasses, it's just fun to have two different options. Love you all! If you have any questions feel free to email me or comment below! XOXO  and yes, I'm holding a donut.


Back open for business!

Hello Friends!

I know it has been a really long time since I have made a blog post. I will explain, but first, I'm just incredibly happy to be writing again and talking to all of the wonderful people who help make my blogging experience fantastic. I don't know how many of you have stuck around but I'm grateful if you have. I will be much more consistant in posting and I promise you some heartfelt, fun, blog posts.

Back some time ago, when you probably noticed I stopped posting, my blog had been hacked. It put a virus onto my website which also happened to destroy my laptop. I believe it has been cleared now because all of the obvious signs have disappeared and my password and security has been changed as well.

Sorry all that it took so long to get back! I've missed the lovely blogging community tremendously and hope everyone is doing fantastic. <3

Love,

Lizzie

7 ways to feel more girly and fab.


1- Get your nails done! 
Get acrylics or just paint them a fun color at home! You will feel much more confident, happy, and girly when you're finished! 

2- Treat yourself to something special.
Whether it be buying yourself a nice cup of coffee, getting a massage, or splurging a little on the cute boots you saw at the mall... Do it! Treat yourself (and others) the way that you want to be treated!  

3- Buy yourself a cupcake. 
It is OK to buy yourself a cupcake. Even if you don't think you need it. Pick out a cute cupcake from a cupcake store! (Most of the time they will put it in a cute box with a cute bow and then you feel special carrying your cute cupcake box around.)

4- Do some stretches. 
You will feel so much better afterwards and better about yourself! 

5- Light some candles. 
Because why not? They smell good and give a nice relaxing atmosphere. Let me recommend the Bath & Body Works Banana candle. It doesn't necessarily smell like bananas but it does smell amazing! I use the wallflower in my bedroom. 

6- Splurge at PINK.
I don't know what it is, but wearing VS and PINK brand just makes you feel better about yourself. It is a femine brand that gives you confidence. 

7- Love yourself. 
You don't have to go out and buy yourself something to feel girly, girly is a state of mind. You need to be confident in who you are and keep yourself mentally and physically healthy. 

Xoxo 

P.s I'm sorry I haven't posted in a couple weeks Lovelies! That is changing. I promise I will be more frequent! I want to hear how all of you guys are doing. Comment below and lemme know. (:
