Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ we are going to discuss fall fashion! About 3 weeks ago, I posted a fall look book full of fun outfits for the fall season (here’s a link to that post Monday Memos: 2014 Fall Lookbook | celindareyesblog). The look book was posted in celebration of the beginning of fall, so I thought to follow that up today with some fall essentials that EVERYBODY needs to have. I featured items in this post that I actually own or just really really love, so remember that you can substitute any items for something similar. Hope y’all enjoy the post!!!
5) Leggings/Jeggings: Destroyed Jeggings – Long from Wet Seal
Personally I wish we could just wear sweatpants 24/7 but they say you’re not “suppose to”, so leggings and jeggings can often be a good alternative if you want to combine style and comfort. I really liked these jeggings form Wet Seal because they have the cool destroyed element that will instantly add an edge to any outfit. I think that the destroyed look on jeans/jeggings will always be cool, so you definitely won’t go wrong with adding these to your wardrobe.
4) Skincare: Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment from Sephora
For a lot of people, the changing weather can mean changes in your skin, so I HIGHLY suggest this product from the AMAZING Kate Someville. I absolutely love this product because it makes your skin feel really clean, smooth, and just completely renewed and refreshed. It’s a little pricey but I definitely think it’s worth it.
3) Bag: BLOTTIE fringe from Steve Madden (this is currently available for pre-order as of October 11, 2014)
It doesn’t matter what season it is, you always have to have 1 (or several fun bags to add the perfect finishing touch to your outfit). The added aspect of the fringe adds a boho vibe to the outfit that will definitely make you stand out this fall season. My absolute FAVORITE part of the bag is the inner lining (which you can’t see in this picture). Why is the inner lining my favorite part you may ask, well…the pattern of the inner lining is zebra!!! I am completely obsessed with zebra print because it’s fun, and this is an easy way to have that element without having to commit to a wild pattern.
2) Cardigans: Ribbed Knit Dolman Cardigan from Forever 21
I really love cardigans during the fall because it’s usually cool enough to throw on a cardigan in the evening or just for a fun touch to an outfit. I really love this cardigan because it’s gray (which is going to be HUGE this fall…but don’t worry it comes in more colors), and it has a cool lace like underlining that extends past the length of the cardigan. I think that the underlining gives the piece a very famine touch that will instantly dress up any outfit (perfect for those days when you just don’t feel like making an effort…yes we’re all familiar with those types of days).
Finally we get to one of the most important items to have in your closet…a really cute boot! I love this boot because it’s cute, it has a fun high heel for all of you that don’t trip over your own feet (unfortunately I am not one of those people who always has the whole coordination thing figured out), and it has a fur lining on the inside (I’m pretty sure about this but I haven’t gotten a chance to look at the product in person). I love that this boot is just so incredibly cute, and the perfect girly touch to any outfit. This is also a boot that you could use for work (dependent of course on where you work) or school.
Hello people of the internet! How are you doing today? If the answer is good, then I have good news for you…if the answer is bad, then I have better news for you. What is this amazing, life-changing news? Well it’s time for another ‘YouTube Wednesday’ blog of course! What makes this blog extra special is that our subject today is YouTube beauty/fashion guru Bethany Mota!!! If you don’t know why Bethany makes this blog extra special, then you definitely need to continue reading. Bethany is not only a YouTube superstar, but she is also a fashion designer, and has an insanely large following on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. At this point if you’re thinking. “Well I’m not really in to fashion, beauty, etc., so why should I keep reading?” well I will tell you why. Besides the fact that you love reading these blogs, Bethany is also an extremely funny girl, whose positivity and natural charisma on camera has caused her fans to fall deeper and deeper in love with her. So if you want to join the Motavator family (a nickname that Bethany has given her supporters), then keep reading and fall under the spell of Bethany Mota. You can learn more about treating depression and anxiety through rehabilitation on the Enterhealth website.
Bethany Noel Mota was born on November 7th, 1995 in California. She has 1 sibling named Britney Mota Wiley , who is also a beauty/style guru on YouTube (here’s her channel Briddy Nicole).
Bethany has stated in her ‘Draw My Life’ video, that she was extremely shy as a child, and was also a tomboy growing up. She has also revealed that she dealt with extreme cyberbullying in middle school, which caused her to have anxiety attacks and become very depressed. Today, there is a lot more awareness surrounding mental health and there is also a lot more options in terms of treatments. For example, it is no secret that depression and anxiety sometimes go hand in hand with addictions and substance abuse issues. Rehabilitation that focuses on tackling the underlying mental health issues that can trigger addictive behavioral patterns is therefore a popular treatment option like it also is the new Medication assisted treatment.
That is not all though. More recently, there has been an increase in the number of people using medical marijuana, through products like vapes and edibles, as a treatment. Marijuana has been found to alleviate the symptoms of depression and anxiety; all symptoms of those being bullied, to learn more check out the Dmagazine.com . The endocannabinoid compounds in cannabis can help in stabilizing moods which can ease depression. It can also bring a sense of calm which helps with stress and anxiety, visit DigiDrs for Oklahoma medical marijuana to learn more about CBD . Learn more here about marijuana, the types of products available and how they could help those in need. However, when Bethany was younger, this simply wasn’t an option. Instead, in order to get out of her depression, Bethany began watching YouTube videos (you know where this is heading), and soon discovered the ‘Beauty Community” on YouTube. Bethany was entranced by the videos, and began to grow an interest in makeup and beauty. On June 12th, 2009 Bethany uploaded her first YouTube video (Yay!!!), which was a Mac and Sephora makeup haul (here’s the link First Video 🙂 Mac and Sephora Haul.)! Bethany continued to regularly upload videos, and quickly became a top beauty guru on the video sharing website.
Since her YouTube beginnings, Bethany has acquired such a large fanbase, that she has been partnered with YouTube, worked with numerous major corporations and publications, such as; Seventeen Magazine, Teen Vogue, and JC Penny. Bethany made her Seventeen Magazine debut in the April 2011 edition, as a ‘Hair Smartie’ (a category in the magazine and on the publication’s website, in which hair gurus demonstrated how to achieve a particular hair style and/or look). Bethany has been featured numerous times on Teen Vogue’s website, and was 1 of 5 YouTubers that JC Penny flew to one of their Texas locations in 2011, with the purpose of making a haul video ( a video in which an individual buys cosmetics, clothing, shoes, etc. from numerous stores, and then films a video where they talk about what they bought, and possibly how they would style the item(s) ),
