My Crazy Life

Hello loves,
I am so sorry I haven't been posting much! This week and the next will be extremely busy for me, and so I haven't been able to post recently. I am so sorry about this! I will be working on some posts coming up here, but I will probably not be able to post again until the weekend of October 5. I still love my amazing followers and I promise I will post again soon.

Until next time, much love,
Maggie D.

Forever 21 Haul & Fall Outfit Inspirations

<a href="http://www.bloglovin.com/blog/10669157/?claim=6sxyhshxkqh">Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a>
Hello lovelies!

I have been quite busy with college, so I am so sorry I haven’t been able to post near as much as I would like to! I will get into a better routine I promise! J This past weekend I finally left campus to check out One Direction’s movie This is Us (I’m a Directioner at heart) and of course, I had to do a little bit of shopping. Forever 21 is my weakness, and even though I only spent around $60 dollars, that’s a lot of money for a college student. I was able to purchase an adorable array of items that go perfectly with my college wardrobe.

First off, I was in dire need for a mirror for my desk (make-up application is much easier with one!). This mirror is adorable and was a little under $6. It was basically a steal.

I was also able to get this adorable duo as well. The pants were love at first sight; they were super light-weight and comfy for college classes. They were around $16, which wasn’t too bad at all! I also got this bright shirt to offset the black and white in the pants. Their plain tees were on sale for $3.80 which was perfect!

This jacket was incredible. I was looking for a new one for fall, and this one was perfect. I love the print on the top and back, it makes the jacket stand out from any other, plain colored one. This was a little more spendy at $35, but it will definitely come in handy when these cooler fall months come along.

 And here was my make-up look for the day; I decided to keep it simple!

Also, here is a closer look at the accessories I wore with my new outfit. My new favorite thing to do is tie gold and silver together in my outfit!

So this was my little fall hall for you all! I wasn’t able to get very much (I hate being broke), but it was nice to get a couple new things!

What is on your fall must-have list? Please leave your fall favorites in the comments below, or leave links to a similar blog post you have made! Also, please check out my links in the upper right hand corner and go ahead and follow my favorite social networking sites! Thanks for reading!

The Lovely Liebster Award

Hello lovelies!
I am so happy to say that the lovely Bethan Wain of Little Miss Fashion nominated me for a Liebster Award. It means so much to me! Here is a link to her blog here: http://littlemissfashionx.blogspot.com 

For those of you that do not know what the award is, it's pretty much a tag for those who have less than 200 followers. It's an amazing way to help support all of the amazing bloggers in this blogger community! The person that nominates you will leave you 10 questions on their blog and I have to answer them, write down 10 other questions for the people I nominate, and then nominate 10 other people.

My 10 questions:
 1. Do you prefer straight or curly hair?
I prefer curly hair, but my hair doesn’t ever seem to curl very well! So, I usually end up keeping it straight.

2. Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, or Tumblr?
I am so torn! I would have to say I am either a Twitter or Instagram kind of girl!

3. What three words would you use to describe your personality?
Quirky, Funny (at least I think I am…) and Random… these are a lot of similar adjectives.

4. What inspired you to start blogging?
I have had a love for fashion for as long as I can remember! I loved following other bloggers, and then I realized, why don’t I just start my own? I haven’t posted very much as I just started college as well, but I am ready to keep it going!

5. What is your favourite high-end makeup brand?
To be honest, I do not have much extra spending money to spend on high-end make-up (poor college student problems). The brand that would be a little more expensive would be Clinique, but I am a dedicated drug store beauty girl.

6. Who are your favourite actresses/actors?
Rachel McAdams has been a favorite of mine for a long time! I also love Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Garner, and Mila Kunis. To be honest, though, I love all kinds of movie actors and actresses, so it’s so hard to choose!

7. What is your favourite subject in school?
I have always loved my English classes; reading and writing are kind of my things.

8. What do you like the most about blogging?
I love meeting new people and checking out their blogs as well. The blogging community is HUGE and it’s crazy how many amazing people you can meet!

9. What is your favourite ice-cream flavour?
My favorite is anything involving chocolate, candy, or cookies. My personal favorite is Cookies and Cream.

10. What is a quote that you live by?
“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” Walt Disney.

Again, I want to thank Little Miss Fashion for tagging me in the Liebster Award! I hope you all learned more about me from my answers! Now I would like to tag these ten lovely bloggers; go follow them as well!

Here are my questions for you:
1. What made you want to start blogging?
2. What is your favorite part about the blogging community?
3. What is your favorite social networking site?
4. Who is your celebrity inspiration?
5. What is your favorite article of clothing?
6. What is one thing you could never live without?
7. If you could meet any blogger, who would it be?
8. What is your favorite beauty product?
9. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
10. What is your favorite store to shop at?

If the lovely bloggers I tagged help to promote my blog, then I will love you forever. I love this blogging community and can't wait to keep posting. :)

Much love,
Maggie D. xx

Back to School Beauty Routine

Hello lovelies!

As my time here at college progresses, I have since realized the importance of getting ready quickly. When you are up late studying, you don’t have time to worry about looking perfect for class. However, I do understand the struggle of wanting to look good. Here are some of my must have beauty products and tips that will help you look like a beauty in no time:

·      Concealer: This is a must have when attempting to get ready after a late night up studying. Stress and lack of sleep can seriously affect your complexion. Take a little concealer and dab it on your problem spots (under your eyes, on newly formed breakouts, etc.). Then, even this out with your fingers or a brush. Ta-da! You’re looking better already.
o   I use: Covergirl Invisible Concealer in the shade Fair
·      Foundation: Apply a light amount of foundation over your face to brighten up and finish making your skin look a bit clearer. I also apply a finishing powder on top of this to help prevent my skin from getting too oily (my skin is naturally quite oily; I feel your pain).
o   I use: Covergirl Clean Oil Control foundation in the shade 505 (ivory) & the Covergirl Clean Oil Control pressed powder in 510 (Classic Ivory)
·      Mascara: Nothing like a little mascara to make your eyes look wide awake in the morning! I first use an eyelash curler to prep my eyelashes. Then, I swipe on the mascara, and my eyes look instantly more awake.
o   I use: Covergirl Lashblast Fusion in Very Black
·      Eyeliner: Apply a slight line on the outer corner of your top lash line. I just recently started using this, and it makes my eyes appear more open. I typically use black liner. However, I recently found that an olive green color makes my eyes really pop! Look into trying something new with your make-up routine; it makes getting ready a lot more enjoyable.
o   I use: Covergirl Perfect Point Plus in 200 (Black Onyx) and Covergirl Exact Eyelights in 715 (Majestic Jade)
·      Lips: Throw on a bit of bright color on your lips to make them pop! (It also makes you look like you took longer to get ready when you really didn’t!)
o   I use: Maybelline New York Color Whisper in the shade 50 (Cherry on Top)
I hope this post will help you while you get ready for school! What is your everyday school look, and what are your must-have products? Tweet me your pictures and products to @Maggie_Dickman, or comment below.

Much love,
Maggie D. xx

Back to School Style

Hello my lovely readers!

I have officially survived my first week of classes! AAHH! It’s been crazy. I have some great classes, and some that will really be a struggle. However, I am so excited to learn more in every class from my incredible professors. As I am writing this, I am also getting ready to go to a free movie night (Great Gatsby I might add). I cannot forget to mention how many fun activities are going on. I went to my first ever college football game last night (I only stayed for one quarter though; it was wayyy too hot).  Here is a little collage I made from this fun night (Go Bulldogs!):

With all of these crazy activities, it is hard to know what to wear. I went to a private high school with a uniform, so picking out an outfit for everyday was an all new experience for me. I will show you what I wore that expressed my personal style, and was super easy to pick out (after late night movie parties with my floor… if my parents ask I was studying!). Also, I am sorry about the terrible quality of these pictures; I will work on this for next time!

My most important tip for anyone heading back to school: KEEP IT COMFY! If it is as hot as it is in Iowa right now, stick to easy walking shoes and clothes that will not make you uncomfortable. Those wedges may be cute, but walking around all day in them is a no-no! Save them for the weekend; you will thank me later.

I hope this helped to give you ideas for what to wear BTS (back to school for those who don’t know what my abbreviations mean J). I would love to see any of your favorite BTS looks! Just tweet me: @Maggie_Dickman with any of your go-to back to school fashions! I would love to get some inspirations from you all. Also, you can go ahead and check out my links in the upper right hand corner. I will be posting things as often as I can on social media. Go ahead and follow if you would like to see more about my daily life and adventures.

Much love,
Maggie D. xx

As I stated before: I do my editing on the apps "A Beautiful Mess" and "PhotoWonder" both available in the App Store!
