Don't judge the natural look!

It’s one thing about us woman that really bothers me: the need to wear and tell other girls to wear excessive amounts of make up! Don’t get me wrong, especially on a bad day, I NEED a lot of make up, and for big events sometimes its better because it’s almost treated as a work of art (as you really need an artistic hand to-do your makeup flawlessly!) but when it comes to nights in, the movies, shopping, even music festivals and such why cake on the make up?! Every girl has something absolutely beautiful about them that they don’t need as much on!

Especially if I caught the sun I stay away from foundation and cover-up as I want to show off my freckles and natural tan, but when I do this girls ask me “don’t you wish you could wear more make up?” and “why don’t you wear more you look pretty” and it’s kind of like: okay you think I look nice…but it’s not really me. Even when I’m not tan, I like to wear a natural look with minimal makeup, because that’s what I’m comfortable in. I don’t like walking into College or doing mundane activities with cat eye-d eyeliner and two layers of foundation on, not saying it shouldn't be done (because props to you if you can get up in the morning and even be bothered doing anything!) but I shouldn't be judged for it.

I think this new and modern way of caking on your face before regular activities is actually becoming the norm and having a natural look being weird…which I find rather alarming, both should be normal, nobody should be scrutinized because they are wearing less makeup.

“she would look better if she covered up her spots more”
“she would look better with more mascara”
“she would look better if she had foundation to even out her skin tone”

I’ve heard each quote about a thousand times now and each time I’m almost offended, you may think that girl may look better with more make up on? But she wouldn't be herself, she looks beautiful to others that matter and that’s all that counts! Flaw’s should be celebrated instead of constantly hidden, it’s okay to leave the house without foundation or blush or bronzer, it’s alright to not pencil in your eyebrows! If you wan’t to? Go for it! but don’t judge the girl that doesn't.

Here are a few celebrities that also celebrate minimal make up:

Triangl swimwear were kind enough to gift me a bikini! I had heard of them before, and was a massive fan of the brand before hand so as you can imagine I was so very grateful when I received this gorgeous bikini! Its an amazing quality, and insanely comfy for swimwear! I don't like kind of "triangle" bikini tops because (its no secret) I have small boobs, but this actually fit so well and didn't make me feel self conscious one bit! here's a few photos! (I only styled it with the bag, I thought it didn't need much and I wanted all attention on the actual product!)

The lovely people at asked me if I would come up with a few outfit ideas for The Aria Resort in Vegas! I was honored to have even of been asked! below I have came up with 4 outfit choices: eating out at The Lemongrass(one of Aria's gorgeous restaurants), bathing by the Aria's cool Liquid pool lounge, clubbing at Aria's Hazel night club, and even just catching up with all your sports in their amazing sports bar!!!

The first place is the restaurant "Lemongrass" which has "woven decor"  inspired by the Thai Silk Factory, how fancy!! to style for this I looked into a bit of Thai fashion, I thought this gorgeous purple/pink/black patterned two piece from Miss guided really fit the look, its also not too playful but not too serious: perfect for going out to eat! I am pairing it with the orange tank from Miss guided because I felt as if the bright orange really made the outfit "pop" the shoes and necklace are from Topshop, and I loved them because the necklace really resembles the nature of Thailand and really fits in well with the look, as the shoes match absolutely perfectly color wise and have a small heel, keeping the look elegant and sophisticated like the restaurant! The small bag is from Fossil, and I added it into the look because I felt as if on every nice evening dinner, a girl needs a nice bag! , its also small but not too small to where you cant fit anything in it.

Next is cooling off at the Liquid Pool Lounge: its very sophisticated yet (its Vegas so) fun! I wanted to show that within the look. I have a free people swim suit, its white (elegant) and just absolutely stunning, I matched it with black sandals (also from Free People) because they fit the "bohemian" vibe, the Black Kimono is from Missuided and I thought it was just an absolutely gorgeous "cover up" to have for chilling around the pool when not swimming! I added the Rock'n Rose Flower crown because I felt as if the look needed brighter colors and who DOESN'T want a flower crown? (it also fit into the whole bohemian vibe I have going on) and last but certainly not least the Ted Baker shopping bag! I personally use one as my beach bag, its plastic so it doesn't get that dirty and its big enough to fit pool side essentials like: sun cream, your towel, iPod, a on so forth. I chose the pink "shopping bag" because it matched the flower crown yet the bow was black matching the kimono/shoes.

When clubbing in Haze Nightclub, I wanted the look to be as fun and colorful as the dance floor! I first choose this bright dress from Saboskirt! its elegant yet sexy (I feel so out of context using the word sexy but whatever) I felt as if it would be perfect for a night out clubbing! I paired it with the bright and shining heels from Jeffrey Campbell as I felt they really set the dress off and made the outfit more bold. I brought the pastels back into the outfit with the Michael Kors pink and gold clutch, as a girl always needs a decent bag when going dancing and this clutch would be perfect for keeping ID, credit cards, and whatever else you may need for your night out. The rose gold bracelet is added as I feel it would brings the look together completely. I didn't add any more accessories because the shoes/bag did enough to carry the look :)

For all you sports fans I have a gorgeous outfit idea for you too! to quote the hotel "This is not your typical Las Vegas Book with row upon row of simple seating. We want you to sit down in one of our couches or lounge chairs and never want to leave. Other amenities include full drink and food service as well as a VIP section." Watch the sports you love, in this adorable dress I found at Nastygal paired with the sporty themed/comfy trainers from Nike! the final accessory is the bag (from Top Shop), it matched the look almost to a T and would hold everything you would need for the day!! 

Dinner at Dior!

Okay, so really this should be going under "my style" as it isn't a review of any product, but its my most favorite dress in the whole wide world taken at, well: Dior itself, so I just kind of thought "what the hell lets make this a special post" :) So this dress is from Jones + Jones ( and it basically is the cutest item of clothing I own and if I could sleep in the thing? I WOULD!! that's how madly in love I am with it :P I thought it was ideal to wear for a "Dior" dinner as its elegant and girly. I then wore my TopShop pendant necklace because the pastel colors really complimented the dress. I didn't want to overdo it with anything as the floral design within the dress was enough to stand out, but I wore my frilly socks (as always) with my white heels as they matched, my sunglasses were added simply because it was sunny and my white bag because it matched again ;)  I left my hair wavy but curled over a few bits with a curling wand, simply because it was ideal for St.Tropez and also because I felt curls was a cute wee addition to the look. Make up was minimal, I felt as if a "caked on face" would take away from the simple elegance of the overall look!

The lovely people over at Riverse were kind enough to send me two of their amazing products! first one was a gorgeous floral playsuit and the other a quirky tank that reads "you can't sit with us" (I personally have been dying for a mean girls related item of clothing since the movie came out so I was ECSTATIC to receive it!). This post is going to be like a two-in-one: two different looks in one post!! :) These two garments you can find on Reverse Officials instagram @reverse_official and soon to be available at  House of Fraiser!

Im everything obsessed with this shirt! it fits perfectly, is extremely comfortable, and holds a mean girls reference I mean WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT?! I like quirky T shirts, and I think its just the perfect one! the colours are black and white which I found easy to match with just about anything :) I wore high waisted shorts because I felt they made the shirt look grungy and it was kind of the look I was going for? like a glamorous grunge! I paired this with my black heels (simply because they matched) and added the socks because I felt the need to spice up the outfit with a frill ;) I wore my necklace to glamour-up the outfit and used the headband because I felt like the colours in the garment matched the necklace to a T and that it brought something cute and unique towards the look :) I used hair chalk in the hair, to kind of bring out the colors within the outfit!! 

This play suit is just everything me!! flowy, girly, elegant, and floral! haha :) I decided to style it with a belt as it showed off my bodyshape more but didn't really wear much with regards to accessories because I felt that it would take away from the play suit :) I then wore my heart shaped sunglasses because I thought they brought a cute wee fun essence into the look and finally my heels! as they are white and brown and matched the look perfectly! xox

Style Blogger Awards '14

You're probably wondering how it went right?! (That was a rhetorical question OF COURSE YOU ARE..but not really) well I didn't win, but its always a HUGE honor to even be nominated so thank you to everyone who voted for me from the bottom of my heart it means the absolute world!!! :) It was, yet again, another absolutely amazing experience!! I got to bring my boyfriend which was so fun for him, and we met so many absolutely stunning/talented/amazing fellow bloggers! I HUGE thank you to MissGuided for allowing me to choose an outfit for the event.

 I am wearing there dress and heels!! I went for a king of "90's clueless" vibe, I'm not quite sure what exactly reminds me of the movie but I think its the straight cut/preppy/girly dress combined with the really awesome heels!  I originally wanted my hair kind of  70's straight with a huge big curl, but I didn't have the time so just went with the classical/elegant long curls which I personally felt worked out nicely!! I kept my make up minimal with natural colored eye shadow, a little bit of mascara, and pinkish lip gloss as I was already tan and felt the look looked fresher/better without a caked on face! BUT back to the overall look, I felt as if bold jewelry really took away from the dress so I wore a simple tiny pink pendant necklace and a thin gold bracelet which then matched my white/gold Michael Kors bag! I paired my heels with some frilly socks (I'm a sucker for the frilly socks recently) because I felt as if it was also very preppy and looked amazingly cute with the look!!

At the event we were treated to free hot dogs by Heck (I didn't have one but according to my boyfriend if it were a person he would leave me and marry i'm guessing they were amazing!!) Ice Cream, Pink Vodka and champagne!! we were spoiled!!

Missguided also had an area named "Missguided fest" which featured many many gorgeous products of there's for their summer line! absolutely stunning garments :D you could also get your hair done at this point but me being a perfectionist with my hair I decided to be a fun sponge and I missed out but all the hair do's were gorgeous!!

As you can imagine, as the night went on I got very drunk on all the free booze and met some absolutely amazing people! everyone was so friendly, fun, and stylish! was just such an amazing event so a BIG THANK YOU TO COMPANY MAGAZINE FOR HAVING ALL US STEAMIN' BLOGGERS! ;)

chic in the sun with Red Label!

I know what you're thinking "megan you're wearing black?!" and YES, I received this gorgeous dress from Red Label ( Its so elegant and chic that I decided I would pair it simply with heels and a bag, so to not take anything away from the stunning dress! the hat was used more as a prop, I thought it gave the look a more "chic" vibe! :) I wore my hair kind of beach wavy, so that it tied in with the palm trees but wore red lipstick to keep the outfit from looking too casual! 
I think what I love most about the garment is the pattern, its busy but its not busy in a sense that it is TOO much, its simple yet bold! perfect for any special occasion- or even night out in the town, you can never ever go wrong with a little black dress, am I right or am I right! ;) you can buy the dress here at loveredlabel along with many many other gorgeous garments and accessories! Iv'e attached some more look photos below so you can see how the look properly fits!! its body-con, although I would say its extremely flattering for just about any body shape or size!
