how to // Metallic



Metallic it’s everywhere and it’s growing on me. Although sometimes it can be difficult to style no doubt about it.

Well today I’m going to share with you some ways you can style this trend and an alternative fines that has a similar yet softer effect. 


1. Over kill  

Now when it comes to styling this fabric as a top the main thing you want to be aware of is the amount of accessories you’re wearing e.g. a necklace that’s over the top and earrings. It can look over powering sometimes for the eye as there is not really a large brake in the textures. Although if you’re wearing metallic pants or skirt with a basic top then by all means wear over the top jewellery, it will balance the weight of the outfit….just make sure the colours don’t clash. 

2. Basic b*%#h 

Keep the remainder of your outfit to basic styles and natural colours like black, white, nude ect. The reasoned to this is simple it just looks too much with more colours in the outfit even if it’s just your accessory. Remember the metallic is already your statement piece. 

3. The Little Things 

Sometimes all that’s needed to rock a trend is having a little touch of it. Try out metallic shoes or nail polish then just a top, skirt ect. This will especially help those of you who don’t want to go too far out of their comfort zone.

pep talk time // Positive Mind



For a long time thinking in a positive manner was quite difficult for me to do and even today I sometimes struggle with it the way majority of people do. Although for the past six months I’ve began to change the way I see things. 

I used to think it would be imposable, that the things people spoke about were just hollow words that they were speaking…until I myself put it to the test. 

I’m finding now I automatically focusing more on the positive things theta are happening even if it’s connected to a negative situation. I’ve stopped manifesting the world online and societal expectations, bring myself within the present time observing and experiencing more of the world around me. I’ve stopped imagining the life I want, and taken steps towards it. I’m not saying i’m completely there yet, i’m far from it, there are still a lot of things that need to be worked on and life lessons to learn. 

Sure when you hear about all this related stuff you tend to think it’s a bunch of crap….but is it really that hard to believe that ten minute in the morning meditating can stop your anger and irritation? That there is more to life then just judging people, what ever happened to the quote “don’t judge a book by its cover”, has it really been something so difficult to remember and learn from? 


Now I really want to challenge myself and the society that has been morphed. I want to have a conversation, an actual conversation with a strange. One not just filled with 

“Hi” 
“How is your day”
“Good how about yours”
“Not too bad” 
“Bye.” 

Its robotic and hollow and I want to go further despite how hard it will be especially considering I’m not one to open up and talk to people I meat for the first time….but I’m willing to change that. 


If you guys are interested in learning things relating to these topics. Meditating, positivity, manifestation and get more of an indication to what the hell I was talking about go to these two YouTubers…Though for some videos you may need to keep an open mind.

Review // Skin Care



Hello guys! I hope you’re all doing well. 

Today I’m brining you a review on 'Origins GinZing' cleanser and oh my god I literally have nothing bad to say about it. 

I picked up the cleanser at MECCA a few days ago and in that time I found a wonderful improvement in my skin and that’s saying something because it's coming to the challenging time of the month where my skin brakes out. 

The cleanser is quite grainy…it kinda feels like what I imagine dried orange pulp to feel like. The grains do an amazing job at exfoliating and leaving the skin so smooth. 
It has a strong orange small to it so if your not fond of it then I couldn’t recommend you buying it however it's not as strong once you apply it. 



My skin after using the cleanser :)

It does an amazing job at clearing the skin while being gentle which is why I’m happy to buy it compared to a drugstore cleanser that are only around ten dollars cheeper. 

The only down side to it is sometimes there are some remaining grains on your face through that doesn't bother me that much because you just use a towel to remover it.

Discover // Clothing






I just came across an amazing clothing store online people! Now if you’re a fan like me of Urban Outfitters, General Pants Co, Universal store, TopShop and others like them then you’re going to love what I have to share with you! 

‘Necessary Clothing’ has such an amazing range of patterns and styles within what they stock while also keeping up with the popular trends. It gives options for both casual and formal wear along with accessories.

Unlike someone of the above mentioned brands ‘Necessary Clothing’ is a bit on the cheeper side which is great for those on a budget which I happen to be apart of.
I have not however purchased anything from here yet but I promise you this I will be soon.


My Favourite Items





















If you go ahead and purchase anything from ‘Necessary Clothing’ then please comment down bellow your review on the experience I would love to know about it as I’m sure many other people would too.

pep talk time // Beauty



Our lives are all fabricated, fabricated from the truth and the one thing that has the most fabrication is beautiful. Beautiful to others and ourselves. 

This really grinds my gears.

No matter how many post people see online, no matter how many youtube videos they watch and no matter how many positive things are said to them they still don't feel beautiful. Why?  Because they are blinded by the illusion that has formed over the word.

The idea of beauty has shifted through out time, some believe it has to do with confidence and happiness, the aesthetics of something like artwork and the majority today believes it’s the way we look along with the approval of others.

But what if it’s not? What are the chances we have been conditioned just to think this way? A way in which others can hold superiority over use and gain wealth from all that comes from it? I personally think the chances are high as f**k.

I see a humans physicality as shell formed of bones, blood and skin… nothing more. It does not define me nor others. 

what does in my eyes however is who we are and when I say that I’m not referring to what our likes and dislikes are but deeper then that. I mean our soul. Now I don't care if you take this spiritually or subconsciously that parts up to you. 

with out our soul we’re hole, nothing. We can not distinguish who’s good and bad. 
Bad tends to be associated with something scary and……ugly.  
Then would that not mean good is pure, loving and……..beautiful? 

I don’t believe beauty is based on our physical appearance but the soul of who we are being kind, caring, loving and grateful.  

That to me is the definition of beauty.

#The Messy Effect




Ever since I was young I have felt as if something was wrong. Wrong with the system we live in and the thoughts we hold and the actions we take.

3 minutes ago I watch a video by Cartia Mallan and Emma Mercury who I'm sure you guys would know. Every word those girls said explained everything I felt from a young age to now. 
The concept is ‘The Messy Effect’ a community in which people can connect with one another making a change for the better. I want this to happen, it needs to happen. Yes its something big and seems so unachievable to reach a lot of people but so fucken what. Its a big challenge but a challenge that need to take place with the help of others. We’ve seen it with people in the past, making something seem imposable for a singular everyday person to change the order that we live in, however this time it will be a positive one. 

I am just one person with no platform in the world we live in but I’m not going to let that mask the voice we were all born with. 

There has been a reason that I’ve been holding off on restarting my youtube channel. It’s because I wanted it to be something in which I new wasn’t going to be formed on the duplication of what is as Cartia has said in past videos “the recipe” that everyone follows. The point is all if not the majority of my videos will be supporting the idea of ‘The Messy Effect’ and I cant wait.

ps. videos will be coming soon

Tips and Tricks // Curly Hair


Hello everyone I’m Celest and I hope you’re having a wonderful day or night wherever you are :) 

Today I have come to say that after 18 years of having untameable curly hair I think I’ve come to learn how to control it!  *starts to think about humid weather* …..I think….

Over the last few months I have changed the way I treat my hair in the morning which has made a significant impact.  Now I give you a hand full of tips to help you keep your curls in form and minimise frizziness.
  1. apply coconut oil to your hair before washing it (not a hair mask though you can do that too) 
  2. when your in the shower rinse your hair with cold water…for the recored I don't tend to do this unless its summer because I hate having to freeze while in the process 
  3. apple hair spray before drying your hair preferably a light one so it doesn’t dry out your hair I use this Sunsilk Gloss Finish Serum Spray or I use a creme such as Schwarzkopf Curl Flex Creme or just coconut oil again 
  4. when drying your hair use a blow dryer with the diffuser attached to make your curls extra springy. This method of drying also helps if you can pre tell your going to have a frizzy hair day   
  5. If you want you hair to dry with loose curls then use a cotton t-shirt or squeeze dry your hair with a towel 

There you have it! I hope that this helps you. In the future I think I’m going to do how to style short curly hair, these hair styles are great if you have only a few sections that are frizzy.

Dear Stranger #1


Dear Stranger,

We are living in a world with progressive technology lessoning the physical  interaction we have with one another. Don't make this mistake. Don't become addicted to the drug we call a screen.

Remember that every minute that you stare is a minute that will never return as it gets stolen . Day after day staring at the screen when you're in your room, with your friends as you talk, as you walk. you loss those precious minutes for nothing. 

You'll miss all the excitement life gives if you do.  

There is so much more out there, go on a road trip, fine something you love that's not on the screen, admire the beauty that living has to offer with the people you love. 

I'm not saying to abandon it, there will be times when it's needed. I am however saying be wary and step back at times because sixty seconds can turn into lost hours and those hours will never be returned.  

From The Past

PS. I am going to be posting a youtube video on this I think so stay tuned on social media if you want to see it :)

update// Fresh Start



I haven’t been on here in a long time. I’ve been thinking constantly what do I want to make up of this site, of this page.  I always came back to this question and all I had to answer it with was that I wanted to be true, to show who I am and my thoughts. 

I always got stuck on thinking that it had to be beauty and fashion related because thats what the majority do. Well I’ve decided to screw that even though they are things I love. I want to share my thoughts in a positive way to inspire thoughts to those who stumble across my page for some unknown reasoned and can relate and hope. 

Sure at times I may post now and again on fashion and maybe even beauty but that’s not all I want to have a say in. 

The point of my blog is….to write and inspire to….be creative.

Discover // Lumière Jewelry

Hello everyone how's your day or night going? 

I always stumble across such amazing shops and designers online and it only feels right for me to share them with you guys encase you're into a similar style. 

Lately I have been liking the style of layered necklaces that are delicate and simple as they are so effortless and have the capability of pulling a lot of different looks together. I came across 'lumiere Jewelry' on Instagram and when I saw their designs I just thought "girl you need to get a job, start saving  and get your hands on some".  

The jewellery they stock is exactly what I've been looking for. Their necklaces range to both the likings of  girly and grunge styles so take your pick. 

A bones is that they ship world wide people! When I saw that I got so excited and increase you're wondering they are based in Texas and sell the jewellery off Etsy.   

These are my personal favorites:

Pep Talk Time - After life


from = http://www.hypable.com/10-best-harry-potter-quotes/2/ 

I don't say much. Majority of people who meet me probably think I have no thought process, that my skull is only filled with air flouting around in erratic patterns back and forth, back and forth hitting the walls of my skull.  They're all wrong. I may be quiet but my mind is loud with tangled thoughts and questions that keep me up until the braking morning hours.  

There was one night a while a go were I began thinking about after life. I'm not a religious person I should mention that now. My endless thoughts wandered to the world of God, angles, heaven, reincarnation, spirits and ghosts. I got scared to my bones these thoughts and questions left me with electric shivers that put me into shock. This was the moment when I realised how scared I was. Not about dying but about the unknown. 

I have come to the conclusions that this is the thing I fear most and I think so does the majority of humanity. If we didn't then why do we search and worry over the possibility of aliens? Why create movies based on things we can not prove nor deny the existent of....maybe so we can laugh after with friends through the feared possibility of their existence. Have we in fact lived thousands of life times with the memories we had of them sucked into oblivion or once it's all over do we watch over our families through a silent presents? 

I know for certain my biggest fear is the unknown. I used to always wonder why people believe in religions, now I however think that it's a way for hope to fill in the unknown taking away their fears. You maybe wondering what I do however believe in the answer is I don't know. I know we are promised two things we will be born and we will die everything else is up to questioning. I do although like to live by this statement when it comes to the unknown " just because there is no evidence for it does not mean there is evidence against it". 

What do you think happens after life? Do you fear the unknown?  

Sometimes I think life is an illusion. We're all just puppets to something bigger and one day we wake up to its reality. 

PS. I'm sorry if this post was too deep I just wanted to put my thoughts out there and I'm sorry if it didn't make sense. Yes to those who recognised it "we are promised two things we will be born and we will die" is a quote on Tumblr.

I Recommend // Hair Care




Hello everyone! I hope you're having a wonderful day or night wherever you are. Today I wanted to recommend a hair product so keep on reading. 

Due to my posts both here and on Instagram the majority of you would not have noticed that I have naturally curly hair. Now curly hair can be a bit of an annoyance because its constantly gets tangled no matter what I tend to do. To make matters worse people tend to ask me "can I touch it?" whiles already having their hand run through it and get stuck midway because that seems the most logical thing to do when someone has curly hair! NOT. :P

I have however found a product that keeps my hair from knotting and wanted to share it with you.  It's the 'Macadamia Natural Oil Nourishing Leave-In Cream'.  This product is amazing it makes my curls feel so  hydrated and soft, keeping them formed and not knotted. While doing all these things it also doesn't make your hair look oily. 


















HOW I USE IT: 

What I do is towel dry my hair a little then apply a little bit of coconut oil to minimize frizziness and increased the soft texture. I then gradually apply the leave in conditioner and let my hair air dry. 

I high recommend both the product and the method I use of applying the oil.  

On a side note I brought mine at Coles 

Price > $23.49 AUS (...I think it was when I was at Coles)

Buy it here

Pep Talk Time- Wear what you want


Hello there! How are you? I hope you're doing well :) 

Today I wanted to share my opinion on a matter and give some advise on gaining confidence in something you want to wear out though to others you think you may look a bit bizarre.

The majority of the time I go out with my friends they tend to apologise to me out of thin air. Want to know why? Because of what they're wearing. I would always think this was a very strange thing for someone to say and I would always be like "dude you look great!". One day though I finally asked one of my friends "why do you always apologies?" okay and yes I know my story is dragging on but it has a purpose so keep reading and don't click that tempting cross button!  She then told me "because you always look so put together and I look like crap". "Now hold the flipping phone because that ain't right or true" I said. 

I have learnt over the years to not give any care into what other people think about what I'm wearing and I think it's important that other people go by this as well. I know it's easier said then done because I've been there too but it's possible to gain that mind set.  

Your style is your style! If you want to dress in baggy comfy clothing when you go out to the movies then so be it. If you want to wear stiletto heels with a girly outfit during the day then girl you do it. If you want to wear vintage styled item of clothing then do it...you get my drift? In todays day in age we're so worried about what other people think about our appearance because we think everyone around us cares about what we look like but the truth is they're not looking because they give a shiz.  Don't hold back wearing the things you want to because believe it or not but you'll feel more happier when you do and with that will come confidence. 

Now here is my tip for you when you have an item of clothing that you really like but you think it's not what's "trending" or what other people would deem "fashionable" then begin wearing it slowly. Wear it around the house for a while until you feel like your rocking it and want to wear it out. If your still not sure then wear it around your closest friend who you feel won't judge you then make that final leap. 

I know this post was written in a slightly different style compared to most on my blog...I just really wanted it to be me talking like I do face to face with one of my friends when they ask for advise.

Celeb Style Break Down



HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! I hope everyone has had a great start to the new year and had a fun NY night.

I wanted to start off a new post style by decoding celebrities styles and telling you guys where you can find similar or exact pieces of their outfit. To start off I'll be talking about Shay Mitchell..... and yes I'am a huge 'Pretty Little Liars' fan, yes I'm so excited about the new  season coming out and know I soooo have not been watching some seasons for the 5th time from anticipation....

Shay is like a flawless creature she is so beautiful and has an amazing  sense of style in my opinion.  Her Instagram its self represents it bye the us of bright colours and high contrast.

When you look at the majority of her outfits they have quite a boho style.  The characteristics to what I'm stating are bright colours, daring cuts, unique patterns, full length dresses, baggy jumpsuits, layered accessories, hats and reflective glasses. If you style your outfits like this then your mostlikly going to get similar outfits to hers.

She does however have a second style which is more modern and edgy. This being more worn for night events and red carpets. Her colour scheme being more black, white and grey with the occasional block of a bold colour and intricate patterns.

Now you're probably thinks " Celest that's great but where can I get this shiz?!?!" well lucky for you I have a couple suggestions. :)  

HER STYLE: 




Price >  $88


Price >  $52

All her things a really high  priced so I didn't bother posting them but if you want the links just comment down bellow saying so then I'll give them :) 

     SIMILAR STYLE: 










       

Celest xx



PS. you may also like this post as it will link you to other clothing similar to Shays style :)
