The Royal Wedding- Kate and William

The Royal Wedding
Everything from the fashion, to the vows, to the photographs... it is a wedding we will never forget...

It is amazing to think that twenty-two weeks ago, we found out that Prince William was getting married. Now he has, and the wedding was the biggest of the century. People from all over the world were watching. It was a historic moment in history... the wedding dress, the "I do's" and the most watched kiss in the world, Kate and William are the most talked about people from nation to nation.

The Dress...

Kate's dress was beautiful! Designed by Alexander McQueen, the gown was a shocking beauty, much loved, and anticipated. As she walked down the aisle, her long dress flowed elegantly out behind, and was carried by her sister, Pippa. The dress was white, and had lace sleeves. It was very pretty and elegant.

The Guests...

1,900 people were invited to be part of this amazing wedding, and they consisted of about fifty people from the royal family, and almost forty members form other royal families, and of course Kate and William's family. People like Victoria and David Beckham were invited along with Sir Elton John and some other celebrities.

The Crowds...
Many people came to watch the wedding from outside Westminster Abbey to get a glimpse of Kate and William. The crowds were huge, almost too big! People were coming from the United States, Canada and other countries to see this royal occasion. From children to seniors, everyone was there watching. If you were not outside the abbey, then you were watching on your TV at home!

The Kiss...
When William and Kate came out onto the balcony, there were scream of delight! Everyone was so exited to see them kiss. And crowd got a lucky surprise; they kissed twice! It is definitely true love! The kiss was the most-watched one in the world.

How To Rock Any Outfit!

How To Rock Any Outfit!

You might be wondering what the perfect way to spice up your outfit is... if so, look no further! Getting a cool outfit is easy. You only have to follow three simple rules. To find out how to rock your look, just scroll down, and read these rules!

1) Make It Pop!

Try using bright colors in your outfit. Adding a fiery red tee with some white denim shorts is really fun and hot! Even if your outfit is a little bland, just add a neon colored hair band, or scarf! The shoes are really important too, so try for some hot pink wedges, or bright blue ballet-flats. Even if it is your nails polish that is making the shimmering splash in your outfit, a vibrant touch of color always makes an outfit look better!

2) Go For Patterns!

If you see a cute dress, but think the big and bubbly pattern is too "out there" don't worry, because big patterns are key to making any outfit look fabulous! Try bold striped shirts, and funky polka-dotted hair-bands! Cute geometric patterned skirts in bold oranges are really fun, and will get everyone looking your way! As long as you feel good in your patterned outfit, the look will rock!

3) Add Florals!

Want to give your outfit a super special look? Well, add a flower! On any colored hair bands, a big carnation on the side always looks good, and floral hair clips are pretty too. On flip-flops or sandals, a big flower always looks great! Floral skirts, shirts, and jackets look amazing with floral patterns on them, and make for a terrific outfit!

Toy Watches-Safari Style

Toy Watches-Safari Style

Toy Watches are known for colorful, cool and interesting watches. And this time, they are dressed to impress! They have lately come out with a new 100% unique watch, Safari. The watches have faces in animal prints like zebra and leopard. The bands come in white and black plasteramic bracelets, and have white or gold rhinestones around the face. I love these watches because they are so cool, stylish and hip! They can be dressed us, or down, and are so chic! The colors are great, but now that you know about all these terrific things about these safari styled watches you might be wondering: What will they look good with, and how do I rock the look?
Well, if that is your question you're reading the right thing, because below is all about how you can make these watches look amazing and fantastic, plus how you can make the look all yours!

1) How To Rock The Look...
Rocking the look is the simple part. Where the watch on the hand you don't write with to start. Then pair it with some brown or black leather string bracelets. Try to wear it with three quarter length sleeve shirts and tee-shirts. If you wear natural colors like greens, grays, whites, blacks and browns, the watches may look better.

2) What To Wear...
For your clothing, you want deep green shorts, or jeans. For your nails, try creams, beiges, greens, yellows, browns, or light colored natural colors. Try simple necklaces like dog tags, or leather strings. As long as you feel good the look will be fabulous!

3) Makeup...
Try nude lipsticks if you are tan or dark, and bright reds if you are fare. Try light pink lip glosses too! For the eyes, don't go too heavy on anything, but do put a little bit of brown eyeliner on, and some forest green eyeshadow. As for hair, do a high pony-tail, braid, or pigtails!

4) Accessorize It...
Go for big sunglasses that go from light to dark. For bags try totes or green/brown colored leather bags. Go for a safari patterned scarf, with some cute sandals, flip-flops or gold/green/brown colored ballet flats.

Safari Style!

Marble Nail Art

Question: What is the coolest way to do your nails right now?

Answer: Marble Nail Art Manicure!

A marble manicure is a great alternative to just a solid coloured nail polish. The steps are simple, and really pay off for a great, cool new look! The instructions are below!

How To Do Your Own Marble Manicure

What You’ll Need:

-A styrofoam/paper cup

-Warm water


-A variety of bright coloured nail polishes

-Some tape


1. Fill a styrofoam or paper cup with warm water.

2. Paint your nails with a clear base coat and leave to dry.

3. When your nails are dry, take some tape and put it around your finger, so only your nails are uncovered. You must put the tape on so you do not get nail polish on your fingers later on.

4. Drop a bit of nail polish into the styrofoam cup and continue dropping nail polish in the water with different colours.

5. Use a toothpick to create a cool design with the nail polish! You can drag the toothpick form the middle out to the edge of the cup, or do diagonal designs.

6. This is where the tape comes in handy! It will shield you skin while you carefully dip your nail in the water and polish. Use the toothpick to remove the excess nail polish from around your nail.

7. Remove your nail from the water. When the polish is dry peel off the tape.

8. Repeat this process for all 10 nails. It is time consuming but it is definitely worth it, your nails look fabulous after!
