My top is from Target, My pants are from Torrid, My shoes are from JCPenny’s
I am not sure if it’s the double taps, or the fact that the layouts are so intriguing, but everyone seems to be infatuated Instagram (including myself). I am constantly on the popular page just looking for new accounts to stalk.
You really loved when I posted all about my favorite bloggers to follow, so I thought that I would do a spin off post from that. Today I have 10 Must Follow Instagram Accounts for you. If you already follow some of these people, we are that much closer to becoming besties.
You guys seem to love when I rock Charlotte Russe Plus, so here you go! From head to toe featuring Charlotte Russe.
Wednesday means that the week is almost over! A couple of days ago, I hopped onto Instagram and asked my audience if they would love to read a Q & A and most of them said yes! If you would like to be a part of those polls, make sure that you are following me on Instagram.
Now let’s jump in and get to know the girl in Bakersfield just a little bit more!
What primer do you use for a matte look?
I am in love with the Rimmel Stay Matte primer! It’s the best and super affordable.
Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because, I needed some sort of creative outlet that I could be myself and really express my passions.
What was your main inspiration?
My main inspiration was honestly YouTube beauty gurus. I loved watching all of the beauty videos and all of the beautiful women getting to be their selves. I wanted to start a channel of my own, just needed something less intimidating. Then I thought to myself, duh! A blog is less scary, but still gets my message out there!
What advice do you have for a beginner blogger?
My advice to you would be to find your own style and consistency is key. When you are blogging, blog for yourself, cause it won’t be fun if you are doing it for the wrong reasons. Another tip is to use your tags! If you are trying to gain followers, those are how people are really going to find you. I can keep going trust me!
What is your favorite vacation destination?
I love going to the beach! I could live there if it wasn’t so damn expensive!
What is your favorite TV show?
I am so in love with Once Upon a Time! Hook is gorgeous and I love all of the fairytales! I am also loving Riverdale and Fuller House for sure.
So many great questions! Thank you all who asked me and wanted to know a little more about me. If you would like a part two, go ahead and leave some questions in the comment section.
Remember to stay confident!
Fashion Friday has made its way back around! Hello doll, today I have another blogger babe for you to get to know! I really hope that you enjoy these posts. I enjoy interviewing these lovely ladies and getting to know them a little better than what the internet lets me. Let’s get started! Today we are meeting Jasmin Schelling, she is a blogger babe with some serious style!
What/who has inspired you to start your blog?
I followed a lot of bloggers on Instagram and just loved what they did and was super inspired. Also, a lot of my colleagues and friends were just non-stop asking me, when I would start blogging. So, one day I was trying to sell a skirt on Facebook and all those really mean people started to insult me – how I dare to wear this skirt, how fat I look and how a beautiful girl like me could just mess up her whole look with this skirt… That just ruined my whole day, I was so hurt and sad. But instead of just hide, I started to write about my experiences with Trolls I made my whole life. And this is when I started blogging.
All those haters and meanies inspired me to start blogging. I didn’t want them to hold me back, I’m f***ing beautiful and I’m f***ing sexy and I want to inspire all the other girls and boys, women and men that it doesn’t matter how they look and what other people say: Just be your beautiful SELF!
How long have you been building your brand?
I started blogging in August 2015 and I’m slowly, but constantly growing.
What is the next step for you?
The next step would be to grow and grow and grow and to keep having fun! It is still a hobby of mine, but maybe one day I can earn money with it.
Who is your biggest role model?
My Mama, always and forever. Strongest woman I know.
Do you have a routine when it comes to posting?
I do not have a routine. I post on Instagram and my blog whenever I want and feel like it. It still has to be fun and I do not want to fall into a routine yet.
Would you say that blogging has changed your confidence?
Most definitely yes. I feel so much more confident about me as a person and about my body.
This is an advice I would give anyone, who is struggling with their self Stand in front of a mirror and look at yourself, what do you like most about yourself? Do it daily and I bet you will find something new every time. Also, let someone take photos when you feel most confident about yourself, with beautiful makeup, hair and clothes, print them and hang them in your apartment. It works miracles!
Do you travel? If so, where are going next?
I would like to travel a lot more than I do now. I travel a lot for work but only in Germany, which is interesting but not my kind of travel I like. My next trip is hopefully around Christmas/New Years Eve. But I do not know where yet. And I would like to do a round trip by car through Scotland around Eastern.
Which topic is your favorite to blog about?
My favorite thing to blog about is everything that goes through my mind: I wrote some essays about body positivity and women’s rights. I learned most about myself and others when I wrote those texts.
What is your drink order from your favorite place?
I’m a Gin&Tonic girl through and through, so that will always be my go-to-drink. Preferable Bombay Saphire or Hendricks Gin with Fevertree Tonic Water and Cucumbers!
What is your favorite color?
My favorite color will always be red. Right now I totally go nuts for yellow.
Who is your biggest supporter?
My family is my biggest supporter in everything I do: Blogging, work, studying, going abroad…
Who is your favorite blogger?
How would you describe your style?
Bold and beautiful, individual, fun!
If you could collaborate with any brand in the entire brand in the world, who would it be?
Ouch, that is a hard question! I really, really like H&M, but so often they really suck when it comes to plus size! Same goes for ZARA. I think I would go with Zalando tough. It’s an online shop with lots of brands and I love them.
As always, if you would like to be apart of the blogger babe series, please email me.
Happy Makeup Monday! One quick question, if you could only choose one makeup product to wear for the rest of your life, what would it be? If it’s mascara, you might want to go pick this one up! I love mascara, and this one just knocked more than half of them out of the park. Today I am reviewing the L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise mascara. The color that I picked up is blackest black.
The tube is pretty heavy duty, a chic light pink look. Just simply gorgeous! The wand is pretty big and reminds me of the Better Than Sex mascara from Too Faced.
The mascara isn’t a wet consistency, it’s not dry, I feel as if it is perfect.
Moment of truth:
I rate this mascara a 5/5! It’s pretty amazing, as you can see for yourself. It gives me so much volume, length, and color payoff.
Have your tried this mascara? If so, do you like it?
I know that it’s not technically summer yet, but here in Bakersfield, it has already been over 100 degrees! Just because it’s gross outside does not mean that I need to look gross.
I am in need for some cute summer clothes, but something affordable. Where do I go? If you said Forever 21, you are absolutely right. How cute is this off the shoulder top that I picked up from there? Guess how much it was? Never mind I will just tell you… $12.90. Yes, the mind was blown, you’re welcome! I love Forever 21, not only are they affordable, but they have a large variety of plus size clothes. I know that every time I walk in there, I am going to find something cute. That tends to be good and bad. This palm tree print on my shirt has been everywhere lately. Everything about this top is just so adorable and appropriate for summer time! This top is off the shoulder and very light weight, it also cinches in at the waist to give a flattering look to the body. I absolutely love it!
What would summer be without sunglasses? I picked these cute ones up from Charlotte Russe for $5.

There you have it, my fashion find for today!
