Dulce Candy: From War to Fashion

Dulce Tejada now known as Dulce Candy joined the army working as a mechanic in 2006. Her works in the army was rewarding ones but she didn't find her happiness and felt bored wearing the same uniform everyday to work not being able to display her love for fashion. Finally in 2008 she found out that the internet is a great source to express her passion for fashion. One evening when she came back from work she took off her uniform, turned the camera on and said nothing but make up, shopping, girl stuff. The consequences: she is now known as Dulce Candy teaching millions of girls her fashion secrets. Her inspiration is her mother. Dulce, using her passion for fashion has now become the spotlight of the social world of fashion.After coming back from Iraq in 2008, she married her longtime boyfriend Army Sergeant, Jesse Ruiz. The both welcomed their first boy child Izek, on January 27, 2011. She has launched her own line of fashion and wont stop till she opens a boutique in Los Angeles. Recently, Dulce was chosen as the “Official Blogger” for Fashion’s Night Out 2011 as well as being selected for the cover of The Stylist Handbook. Dulce Candy is an inspiration for me because she tells us about her fashion secrets and gives us make up tutorials. She even encourages new fashion bloggers who have just entered the world of fashion blogging.Once you check out Dulce's videos, you wont be able to wait till the next video comes. Her own line of clothes is just amazing and is available in affordable prices also! Do check it out to have the best experience of life.

How to Get a Smoking Eye Make-Up

Whether it is an important party or just a get together, you have to look nice. Why not try this really cool eye make-up which I learned and even tried it at home! Here are some tips which can help you.

1.Step 1
First start with the basic. Put 2-3 drops or foundation on your eyes. Rub it so that it isn't visible.

2.Step 2
Next step is to put a very thin layer of eye liner. It shouldn't be too fat but just perfect so that your eye doesn't look too filled.

3.Step 3
Now your eyes has a covering. The third step is to put eye shadow and the eye liner should be covered from the eye shadow. It should not be visible at all. I chose black and dark blue for the eye shadow.

4.Clean the Errands
It is your first time so your eye liner or eye shadow can spread but you can clean the errands! Make your eye look perfect and it shouldn't be looking like your first eye make-up!









ENJOY DOING YOUR EYE MAKE-UP!

2.Just Dance: This song is on my list because it gives me a piece of advise to keep dancing till your feet are aching and just forget everything and follow the lyrics.

3.LMFAO- Party Rock Anthem: This song is seriously made for partying. It can take your heart beat off. The person who has never danced will also start moving on this song.

4.Rich Girl: The lyrics of this song tell people about the importance of being a rich girl and
totally smacking people off with your fashionable looks and clothes.

6.I'm Sexy And I know It: If you love this song then you have a lot of confidence which is superb to handle a blog. And your sexy and you know it!

7.The Pussycat Dolls- Beep: According to me this song means you don't really care what others think of you and your on your own

8.Addicted: The song's name is just perfect for fashion bloggers because we are totally addicted with our blog and this songs only reminds you of the stuff your addicted to.

9.Paparazzi: "I'm your biggest fan, i'll follow you until you love me" Lady Gaga is a legend! This song defines all of us! the fashion bloggers. What we really are

10.Right Round: Well, this is what happens to us when we bloggers have to write a post but have got not even a single word about what to write. It spins our head right round!

10 Successful Shopping Tips

My 10 successful shopping tips are here. Hope they will help you!

1.Wear comfortable Clothes And Shoes
You have to HUNT for clothes so you have to wear comfortable clothes. You cant wear something too tight while shopping otherwise it will kill you! If your planning to wear heels then that can be a bad idea so prefer comfort flats which will help you to search without any problems.

2.Search Online First
Before taking the pains to enter a crowded store and fighting for a pair of jeans search online first. You may be surprised to find amazing stuff!

3.Carry As Much Money As Possible
When you enter a store you can find many kind of clothes for which you would probably die. So carry as much money as possible. You cant afford to leave the top for which you probably fought for 20 minutes!

4.Carry Food And Water
Buying clothes for occasions takes many hours and you cant go out to have a bite or buy a bottle of water. So carry some snacks which doesn't make your bag dirty. Water is very essential so you HAVE to carry a small bottle of water. It saves time as well.

5.Tie Your Hair
I know that it is the most important thing for a woman to look pretty but while struggling in the store DO tie your hair. You don't want to get all sweaty and look disastrous.

6.Maintain Your Price
If your carrying as much money as possible then that doesn't mean that you can buy the most expensive stuff. Buy stuff which is in your budget and that can help you in buying more stuff!

7.Stay Calm
If your all panicked and confused then you can never really get the stuff you are fighting to get. Always stay calm and never panick by seeing the amount of people present. You know you can do it!

8.Take Someone Along
What can be more good than taking a good friend along? Your friend can find clothes for herself also and can help you also! It will save time and energy both.

9.Take Your Time In Deciding
Many times situations occur which leave you all confused that what should I buy and what not? So the best thing would be to take your time in deciding what will look best and you will wear more often.

10.Take A Good Advise
Before buying the clothes, ask someone along that what do they think about the clothes your buying because many times it happens that the top is not too good but in your budget.

So these were my 10 tips. What are yours?

Thankful For A Big Sister


I dont celebrate thanksgiving because I live in India but this project is a nice way to get to know more about each other. I have a big sister who is six years elder to me but still the closest to my heart. She is an inspiration for me. She helps me with my homework, what I should wear to a party and helps me with all of my problems. She has sacrificed so much for me! She always has. Even though we fight endlessly, at the end of the day everything turns out normal. It is so much fun to see our favourite movies together. The people around us say that we have some very close bond which can never be broken. The kind of talks we have only we both can understand. Before completing the sentence we both understand what the other wants to say. She has always brought a smile to my face. She is my best friend and we discuss every bit together. I'm thankful to god for giving me such an adorable sister. I am thankful of my big sister and what about you?

Gemini: Double Trouble

When the stork delivers a Gemini baby girl to a house it can be way more difficult than the parents have ever imagined. Geminis can be at two places at one time as we are ruled by Mercury the Greek god. Geminis have an urge to seek, learn and explore new things. Teachers notice one thing in Geminis that they have no trouble learning to read which i totally agree. Geminis are always ready for a laugh and they don't take anything seriously.We have slim and flexible fingers which make us adept at magic tricks and playing musical instruments. Well that doesn't go with me. Geminis who argues with you that she can do her homework and listen to the radio at the same time is telling the truth. They are spontaneous and love having ten things in their mind at once. Well it is fine at first but then well Geminis are not supergirls. We may struggle to juggle everything. Gemini girls change their minds regularly about what they want to do. Our saving grace is that we're so charming that we can get away with almost everything. We are never satisfied with one pursuit at a time. We can be extremely late but we are out there always running into some new discovery on our way to anywhere. My stone is Tiger's eye. And the color is black and white together, sharp yellow. People look up to us and trust us. They also expect a leading role in the future.

With family and friends Geminis are Miss Popular and everyone wants to be your friend. Our circle just keeps increasing and increasing. With family geminis are really attached and can sometime be oversensitive with them.

We Gemini girls are destined to search for true love for a long time but we'll have lots of fun along the way. When we finally find the correct dream boy, we'll know not to let him go.

As our element is air we can be romantic, emotional and a great friend. We can be really uncomfortable meeting new people.

My horoscope is perfect for my personality. And I check it everyday. Sometimes it does not match but many times I end up in the same position.

Some famous Gemini personalities are:
Walt Whitman
Wallis Simpson
Ian Fleming
Bob Dylan
Bennett Cerf

That's all I can think of. Till then

D.I.Y Make Your Own Scarf!

Today's post is on how to make your own scarf in 30 short minutes.

Things needed:
Scissors
Needle
Thread
Sequins (if necessary)

How to start:
Take a 2 meter long cloth or even longer because when and start stitching it from one end. My scarf was stitched from two sides. It doesn't need much time. My scarf was unfortunately too small in length so i can only use it as a neck bow, cloth bracelet or even as a belt! But i wanted to use it as a scarf well it was my first time so never mind. But your scarf can be better. So get going girls get crafty and by using your hands get stylish.

As Winters Are Gonna Come

Winters are not far away... If you ask me it's just on the edge. So a new season needs a variety of new clothes. Buy something that is fashionable yet warm. You don't to be freezing out there. With glam there should always be comfort....


COATS
A classic coat is a real investment buy, so choose carefully. You need to be able to get a lot of wear out of it, so pick a neutral colour like black or brown. If your a pattern fan then go with houndstooth check or tweed. If your mad about a certain colour then go for it but dont spend a lot of money on it. I am totally crazy about purple so i bought a classy purple coat. It usually goes with everything.

SWEATERS
V-neck sweaters look fab on their own and super smart with a shirt underneath. Always buy round neck sweaters in colours that really suit you as they are much closer to your face than v- necks. Buy as many sweaters as you can because duh! it is winters and you have to wear 1 like everyday.

JACKETS
A zip-up, collarless jacket in a neutral colour looks great with all of your casual clothes. Vintage jackets are always 'in' so try those thrift shops rather than spending a hell lot of money for a new jacket. A word of warning: Don't wear the matching velour suit, especially with heels- that look is so over!

MUFFLERS/ SCARFS
Remember even though it is winters, scarfs always look great with everything. You can practically wear a warm yet pretty muffler underneath your jacket. If your hitting a party then go for sparkly ones! Buy bright colours so that they are noticeable.

SHOES
Buy lots of boots! It's time for boots baby! Prefer buying dark colours and usually leather material which cannot get dirty easily.

SKIRTS
With a pair of stockings we can wear skirts even if winters. We don't have to say goodbye to them! yeah winters are rocking!

JEANS
Jeans are always comfortable. Winters are no less comfortable for jeans. Buy mostly black jeans which go with every colour and texture.

I am dying for winters to come. there will be loads and loads of shopping and a lot of stuff to wear. Hope it will be fun for you too! Till then.
xoxo

How to Make Your Own Ribbon Belt (D.I.Y)


Ok people dis is quite easy as i have tried to make a ribbon belt... Just follow these instruction and voila! a ribbon belt is in front of you
THINGS NEEDED:• piece of ribbon, about one yard long
• pair of belt rings
• needle and thread (the same color as the ribbon)
• sewing pins
INSTRUCTIONS
Take the ribbon and cut it to a length that fits around your waist. Then, lay out the ribbon. At one end, fold the end of the ribbon over about an inch. Secure this in place with a pin. With the needle and thread, sew small stitches around the edges where the ribbon is folded over. Remove the pin. This will secure one end of the belt so that the ribbon does not fray at the end. Now take the belt rings. At the other end of the ribbon, you are going to fold over the end, placing the belt rings inside the fold. Secure with pin. With thread and needle, sew this fold into place, using small stitches that will keep it secure. Remove pin. To use as belt, the ribbon should be placed around your waist. Bring the ribbon through both belt loops, fold it over, and then lead it back through only one loop. This will hold the belt in place, and can be tightened or loosened according to comfort.
Now you have a fab felt in front of you!

What Colour suits me?

The best way to find out which colour suits you is to tie back your hair, clean your face and hold a section of different coloured clothes against your skin. If they suit you they will make you look like  you have peachy skin and bright eyes.

Some colours will make you look like you've just got back from a great holiday , happy, relaxed and sparkling! 

Most colours can be split into two categories, cool or warm. Well here's a colour chart to help you people!

COOL
your best colours are:

Pale blue
Mint green
Deep pink
Dark red
Purple
Silver
Turquise

WARM
your best colours are:

Deep brown
Olive green
Rust red
Gold
Burgundy (darkest shade of purple)
Sunshine yellow
Beige

WHAT DOES EVERY COLOUR MEAN?

RED 
red is a very dynamic colour and makes you feel more energetic. As pink is a lighter shade of red, it has the same effects and makes you feel more romantic.


YELLOW
yellow is a very bright and positive colour. Wearing yellow should make you feel happy and might make you feel brainier ;) Yellow is said to stimulate the mind!


BLUE
blue is very calming and perfect if you wanna relax. If you've got a presentation to give try wearing navy blue, its perfect for confidence as well!

GREEN
green is a very harmonious colour as it represents nature. It also makes quite the fashion statement!


ORANGE
orange is a very bold colour and is associated with warmth and stimulating your emotions.


PURPLE
purple is a royal colour and commands respect. it is also a very creative colour. The paler lilac is very calming and associated with th spiritual side of life, perfect for when you have some deep and meaningful thinking to do.


Belts.

Belts can completely change an outfit. The most versatile is a fairly wide brown leather belt with a metal buckle. This can be worn with jeans, trousers and skirts alike.
A skinny belt looks super smart. Team a black patent skinny belt with your pencil skirt, white shirt and point black heels. and boom! gorgeous!
Your belt should atleast tone with your shoes. Never wear a black belt with brown boots or shoes. If your going for  colours or different textures, the rules are more relaxed.
Also think about your comfort level. Don't dive in for those things which make you cranky.

A Girl's Guide To Feeling Good

What you wear can definitely brighten your mood. I have a weakness of dresses and shoes. When i find just the perfect dress or a a pair of shoes i feel great!
We all know there are some girls out there who just have 'it'. They look great everyday, their clothes are never creased, they always look like their clothes are made to measure and they all claim it took them practically no time to get ready.
Want to know a secret? It probably didn't. More than half of looking fabulous every day is down to preparation, taking care of your clothes, picking the right shapes for you and knowing what your going to wear in advance.

WHAT SHAPES SUITS ME? (Bottoms)
If your legs are a little on the short side you should really avoid wearing cropped trousers as they will make your legs look shorter. On the plus side you can get away with really tiny mini skirts as they wont look so tiny on your petite frame.
If your broader on top with slim legs, go for bootcut trousers and jeans and A-line skirts as the flare will balance you out.
If your top half is tiny, you will want to try and streamline your bottom half with slim-fitting trousers and skirts in darker colours.

WHAT SHAPES SUITS ME? (Tops)
If your top half is bigger than your bottom half wear fitted tops with v-neck and 3/4 length sleeves which will make you look more balanced.
If your tiny on top, you can wear big chunky polo necks and heavier fabrics. Gilets and ponchos look great on you!
Fitted tops almost always look nicer than big baggy tops and T-shirts.

Kareena tears a Roberto Cavalli dress


Roberto Cavalli is one of the greatest designer the world has ever produced. And to rip off his creation needs guts!. Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor took up this challenge, while filming a song for her latest movie offering Ra.One.
According to newspaper daily, Kareena wanted to look glamorous for the track Criminal from RA.One. So she chopped off the gown upon her designer - Manish Malhotra's advice. "The dress that I wear in the song was actually cut from a gown. The look needed to be glamorous. It was Manish's idea and I think it was great. It was a Roberto Cavalli gown made into a sexy dress," Bebo told Mumbai Mirror.
"We chopped the gown on the sets. The song required that. We cut it out and it worked for the better. Kareena looked hot and we are getting super response to it. Her looks in RA.One are very different from Golmaal 3 and Bodyguard. Feels superb," Manish told the tabloid.
The best part is, you get to see this 'change' between gown and mini dress.
