Five Ways to Tie a Scarf

0 Responses
Scarves are very on trend for the winter season. They are the ideal accessories to complete your outfit and keep you warm. Even better, there are multiple ways to tie a scarf depending on your individual style. Here are five of the most common.


1 – Loose Ends
For a relaxed look, you can wrap the scarf around your neck and tuck one end into the wrap. Then, pull the end out so that it falls out from the bottom. After, drape the long end around the neck and secure it in the front of the scarf.


2 – The Looper
The looper allows the scarf to look like a circle around your neck. You have to tie it before you put it on and form an 8 with the scarf.


3 – The Slip Knot
This is an easy way to make a scarf look great. You fold it in half and drape it around your neck. Then, you pull the lose ends threw the hole.


4 – Twist and Tie
For a simple look, twist the scarf around your neck and tie it.


5 – Relaxed Tie
One of the most popular looks is the relaxed tie. To create this look, the scarf needs to be evenly wrapped around your neck. Then, tie a knot in the center so that each side is the same length.

How to Define Your True Style of Fashion

3 Responses
Does your self image show in your clothing? Do you feel comfortable in the things you wear or do you feel not quite like yourself? It’s important to choose a defining style - it helps you communicate to the rest of the world what you’re all about! Follow these tips for identifying your personal style.

1. Put some thought into who you really are. What are your interestes, desires and aspirations? What do you like about your past and what would you rather leave behind? What type of lifestyle do you want?

2. Think about what you want to communicate to others. What do you want them to say about you and what you wear?

3. Flip through fashion magazines and pay attention to what catches your eye. Are you drawn to punk clothes or more classic outfits? Cut out pictures and make an inspiration board if it’ll help you visualize your style more.

4. Accentuate your assets. Do you love your legs or your waist? Would you like to cover up your stomach but show off your shoulders? Pick clothing with cuts that highlight your best features and cleverly hide the features you don’t love.

5. If you don’t know much about fashion, do a little research. What does silk feel like? How does it compare to polyester? What are the different types of prints? As you learn more, you’ll start to discover what you like and what you don’t.

Personal Favorites and Pretty Wedding Dresses from WeddingShe

2 Responses
It is a pasttime hobby to browse wedding videos on Youtube. I get so emotional whenever I see wedding videos like I am the one to be wedded. #lol It is a beautiful hobby actually. It makes you realize how we need to get ourselves ready to be called another person's better-half. To be that kind of better is a struggle. But it will all be worth it.

As usual, when you are watching wedding videos, all eyes are on the bridal gown. Like, it has always been the center of attention. Just to be clear, I am for modest wedding gowns. I am collaborating with a wedding gown shoppe, WeddingShe.com to bring you the best on your wedding day. I hope you will like the series of blogposts I will be posting. You will eventually love them all that you just wanna get married right away.

To start, here are some of my personal favorites among the pretty wedding dresses from WeddingShe.com. You can see the pretty bridal wedding dresses catalog here: http://www.weddingshe.com/list/Wedding-Dresses-list1-10075/


A-line One-Shoulder Floor-length Chapel Pick-up Wedding Dress

This is one of my favorites because it transcends the words elegance and intricate. The lace just matched the flow of the dress. This would be most appealing when worn to a garden wedding. You would definitely feel like Aphrodite.


Cap Sleeves Square Neckline Scooped Back Small Bow Taffteta Ballgown Wedding Dress

Aside from simplicity, this dress is a neck-breaker. You would definitely awe the crowd when you walk in this lovely ballgown. It does not boast too much details but the simplicity proves itself worth of the love you have during your wedding.


Long Sleeved Lace Princess Wedding Gown

And of course, the top of them all. I love laces too much that I can't take my eyes off of this one. Simple yet elegant and indeed, very princess-y. Your would-be better-half would definitely thank God he found you.


Those were some of my favorites from WeddingShe. Now, it is your time to pick. Which of their wedding gowns are your personal favorite? I will be posting wedding ideas and more on my succeeding posts - still part of the collaboration.

If you have been following me on instagram, you probably would notice my Threadmarks product photos. Alhamdulillaah, I was able to finish making the video for the items I received from them.

Watch it below:



I have made this video just because I literally fell in love with each of the accessories they sent me. Ah! Not to mention that they are handmade and heartmade. Amaze!

I am so sorry for the shaky video. I used my Redmi 1s phone in shooting for the video. The phone is real handy.
