A tutorial Recap♥ J-14 magazine!!

Friday, 16 January 2015

Hello loves♥ 

As you may already know...I kind of have a thing for makeup, it's no secret. I am a sucker for a killer smokey eye and yet completely adore a natural feminine look. In 2014, I wanted to bring my Stylelights Subscribers more makeup looks that they could easily recreate! I know what it's like to be that girl who looks at someone's amazing makeup and simply not know how to do it - trust me, I've sat on Youtube searching tutorials for hours- and even when I thought I was getting the hang of it...oh I was wrong..terribly wrong. The biggest thing I've learned is practice makes perfect! I am constantly learning new things and continuously trying to improve my technique, and that's exactly what you have to do when it comes to makeup. Heck, I am still trying to master the winged eyeliner so don't feel discouraged if you don't pick it up the first time!

My main goal was to provide my awesome subscribers some makeup looks that I like to rock & include instructions on exactly how to achieve it- so there is no guess work. In some of my tutorials, I go more in depth with how I do everything and others are simply "Get ready with me" videos to show a brief overview of how I get to the end result! Nevertheless, both seem to be something that are equally enjoyed {which is fantastic to see} and just means that I can continue doing something that I absolutely love! I could jump for joy at what Stylelights has now become & how well it has grown - did I tell you the best part yet?! - it was mentioned in J-14 Magazine!!  Pretty cool right?! A new subscriber said that she saw an article of me in it alongside my Camp Rock Cast & they mentioned my channel♥  {Thanks for letting me know girl!}

With that said, I am blessed to have such amazing and supportive people in my life who truly enjoy what I do and look forward to what I am going to do next! Makeup & styling seems to be my thing, so who knows where it'll take me *wink wink* Until then, take a peek at some of my favorite looks I've created so far♥

Cheers to new creations for 2015♥ 

My Mini Winter lookbook♥

Tuesday, 13 January 2015

Hello loves 

Today I decided to put together a few of my favorite looks that I have been rocking this winter  When it comes to my style, there isn't a specific look I generally tend to stick to - I am kind of all over the place to be honest! I've never been one to be confined to a certain thing {or in this case a category} and if you were to ask anyone who knows me they'd tell you I wasn't lying! Now now..don't go ahead thinking I rock pink tutus and polka dot tops..I draw the line somewhere..although back in my "Naturally Sadie" days there's a good chance they included that particular outfit in my wardrobe. Ohhh Disney.

Nevertheless, Fashion & Styling is all about exploring! My style constantly changes depending on how I'm feeling that day. One day I'd rock something a little edgy yet sophisticated - girly chic - feminine & classy then switch to something super-all-out-just-plain-comfy! Now I have to admit, I'm quite attached to my high buns & leggings, so that {super-all-out-just-plain-comfy} outfit may make an appearance 98% of the time.

 Style says a lot about a person. You can in a sense see their personality in it. What I love about fashion is that there are endless ways to create a killer look. Don't ever be afraid to break boundaries - you wanna wear cheetah print pants and a fedora? - girl go for it! Tomorrow Victoria Beckham may be doing the exact same thing!  

With that said, here's a look at a few pieces I like to throw together for the winter. I hope you enjoy it and be sure to Subscribe to my Youtube Channel "Stylelights" for more fun videos

Remember being Unique is an amazing thing. Create your style and own it. It's your perfect vision, with {a Dash of Somthing Pretty} 

My Everyday Winter Makeup❄

Monday, 12 January 2015

Hello loves♥

I woke up today to a beautiful snowfall and it inspired me to show you what my {Everyday Winter Makeup Routine} looks like! Although the snowfall was quite beautiful...with it came some oh so lovely grey cloudy skies..which of course isn't something a Youtuber kisses the ground for. Nevertheless, I made do with what I had and Voila!!

Many of my amazing Stylelights Subscribers have been so supportive of everything that I do and I can honestly say with all my heart, Thank you. It has been quite a journey and I am so thankful that each and every one of them have been along for the ride.

 It is amazing to see that something that was simply a hobby turned into a passion of mine! Seriously though, let's break this down.. 

I grew up in front of the camera - hence the incredible comfort talking to it as no one is around..by myself..like a weirdo

I was always the girl {who may have been the tomboy in the sense of - I would rather play soccer at recess then gab with the girls} but I had to make sure I looked good doing it! Makeup was on point..well as best as it could be for a 10 year old. I may have succumbed to the oh so glamorous blue eye shadow...yes that's right..BLUE eye shadow. {It wasn't one of my best moments}

Growing up I would spend hours designing outfits in drawings & pairing up cute outfit ideas from my wardrobe - which were usually styled after the Olsen Twins - they were my favs #YASSSSS

And even now at my age the Style and Beauty obsession hasn't faded - I have mounds of makeup - Piles of Clothes that I simply do not know what to do with - & sadly a whole room dedicated to both. Yes I know. My Better half gives me hell for it too.

So in truth, I feel like being a Beauty & Style Vlogger just makes sense! All the pieces were there, just had to create my puzzle♥ 

New Year. New Chances. Same Dreams.

Saturday, 10 January 2015

Hello loves,

Kind of crazy right? It's a New Year, we say goodbye to everything we (may be happy) to be leaving behind, to say hello to something BRAND NEW! I for one have to say that with 2015 now in full affect, I have multiple emotions running through my system. I am scared, happy, slightly want to scream, feeling crazy inspired and yet could possibly end it off with a few tears. Great combo right? Nevertheless, this is a year for change.

I have sat back and watched my life coast by for quite some time now. Yes, I may have had some incredible experiences and opportunities in the past, but when things got too crazy it came to a point where I forgot what I truly wanted in life and had to take a step back. Heck, I think I'm still trying to decide, but one thing I have always said was that I would never settle. It's actually my biggest fear.. You have to do what you love & love what you do. It's like my favorite quote: "Once you find out what it is that lights you up, you can start pursuing it with purpose". For 2015, I am doing just that. It's time to say goodbye to the fear holding you back. If you have a passion for something, girl go after that! Life passes you by sooner than you think. One thing that I do know, I have always had a love for all things {pretty}. It can sometimes come in the simplest form but if you have an eye for it, you can find inspiration in so many beautiful things. "You were Created, To Create".

 My passion is to put my heart into everything I do. To put my signature on the world.. with a {dash of something pretty}.
