Dedication: A True Friend

Hey readers!

I've mentioned earlier how I love bumping into new things, meeting new people, and just learning about different topics, which is one of the many perks of the internet!

I joined Twitter almost two years ago, with no intentions of making friends; it being online and all, it was just my morning newspaper and somehow entertainment. But out of the blue, I started talking to people and I honestly met some of the most awesome personalities out there, no exaggeration. So, this post is actually dedicated to someone I became very close with, and they also happen to live where I do! Bonus.

As we grow older, a lot of things change, our point of view is now in a different angle, people have walked in and out of our lives, there are those who we might never meet again and there are those who stayed still. We figure, the amount of friends we have isn't really important, it's the real ones who matter.

Having friends to be there for you, friends you can count on, friends to just have fun with, is a lovely thing. Personally, I've had a lot of friends in and out of my life, no specific reason, we just tend to change, and true colours come out. But all that is from the past, and I'm so thankful for the friends I have now.

So, that one friend I made online? We actually barely had anything in common, but.. opposites attract? We talk almost everyday, we tease each other and end up arguing, we have our laughs and those deep convos, we have each others back and that's a great feeling. They're funny, nice, sweet, fun, awesome (once again, I admit) and great company.

I never thought I'd actually get close to anyone online, but our friendship doesn't even feel like we met online, more like we were childhood friends, I love that friend very much, and I'm glad we ran passed each other, because they're one of the closest friends I have today and hopefully, it'll stay that way.

I hope all of you have that true friend and it's never too late to find one, young or old, you meet people everyday, give them a chance, you never know where it goes!

Until next time,
xoxo,

Imagination Gone Wild


Hello readers! 

After a long tiring week, laying in bed, holding onto a book with a nice cup of tea and some chocolate cake on my bedside table sounds perfect. And then, I zone out. And when I zone out, my imagination runs far far away.

I read a post on tumblr and that's where my mind decided to travel to. This is how it went:

Imagine a library filled with every book in the world, none of them have titles on the covers, each and every page is blank. But when you open a book, you are instantly transported to the world within the book, you get to live the story of any character for as long as you want, and when you come out, almost no time has past in the real world. 

How magical is that? Way far from reality but so amazing. I don't know about you but I love books so that's double the excitement. One book I'd love to live is Harry Potter. Any part, any chapter, it would be lovely. I think I'll probably choose his character as well.

What about you? If you could live any movie, any book, what would you choose and why? 

Lots of love, 
xoxo,
Teen Diary.

The Makeup Manual comes to you!

Hello readers!

As I mentioned in my last post, I have a surprise for all my beauty lovers, and well, it's time to raise the curtains! I've been on twitter for a while now and I love all the different people you get to meet and inspirations you bump into. I love high fashion, glam, and beauty as most of you probably guessed by now. Every now and then, I'll have my obsessions and one obsession I have yet to get over is The Makeup Manual! But who's behind it? Here, I bring you an interview with the amazing Mai Al Moayyed!





I'd like to say my obsession with makeup has been going up endlessly ever since I bumped into her blog, she's an inspiration and I'm so excited to do this post.

1. When did you start your obsession with make up and how did the journey of educating women begin? 
The makeup obsession started 2 years back- it is my passion & addiction. I started a makeup blog www.themakeupmanual.com since June 2011 to help all girls out there by providing them with tips, tricks, product reviews, collection launches & most importantly –what NOT to do when it comes to makeup! My blog is a hit among Bahraini women and has become an important part of their daily routine. I have started this blog after realizing that Bahraini women love makeup as it boosts their confidence and self esteem- but many don’t know a thing about it. I decided to make it easier for girls and help them learn how to use products & why they should use them. I noticed that there is no “Bahraini makeup bloggers” to educate Bahraini women. I would like to achieve being able to help women perfect their faces by learning in a fun and easy way. I want to pass the message to women:  simple makeup is always better- never over do it. Define your strong face features by making them stand out beautifully, without over the top colors.

 
2. I know you've become famous in Bahrain, but do you have any plans to go bigger?
Of course! It doesn't stop here! Well- let's just keep this under the covers… and wait for my future plans in the next few years :)


3. Have your classes taught you anything?
They have taught me a lot!! They have taught me more than what I will learn at beauty school to be honest. During classes- you deal with real people, you deal with all skin problems, you deal with all different skin colors. You hear girls out- what they like and products they hated, you learn to be challenged- with answering their questions, you learn how to find their foundation shade- by mixing more than one foundation (which I do for my makeup forever counter).. You learn how to find solutions to their skin by examining it after class and recommending what to get. I gain confidence after every class- I believe I learn more after each class about dealing with people and skin & most importantly learning about the products I teach about (I understand them more as  I talk about them more)!


4. Do you get any hate over what you do? Knowing you're online, haters are everywhere, especially when someone can accomplish something.
Haters will always hate. I have a lot of them! It's sad that they exist - to demotivate you.. But somehow it's great to have them- as it shows you "you have accomplished something & you are successful" and they seem jealous! But what can you do or say? Thank god I have the confidence to continue on what I'm doing without letting them get in the way! I'm thankful for the majority- which are supporters and loyal followers which are helping me reach higher and higher:)


5. What are the basics girls should know and follow when it comes to make up?
Come to my class and learn the basics! hahaha! I believe there is a lot to do with the word "basics" and not just foundation and blush- one of the most important things to do is skincare! Apply the proper skincare BEFORE and after your makeup routine- it really affects the results! Blending is part of basics- whether is is blending the foundation or concealer of eyeshadow- it's imp to incorporate that into your makeup to see flawless results.

The best and most important thing they need to know is about the brushes- invest in good quality ones to get great results!! And yes, you need more than 2 or 3 brushes to do that!

6. What's your #1 must know tip before applying make up, when applying make up, and when removing make up?
Similar to the above question- 
before applying makeup- always moisturize- NEVER skip this step! And if you have oily skin make sure to use a primer! 
During makeup- always use a beauty blender to stipple through your makeup (foundation, corrector, concealer) and even things out- it will change everything!
Removing makeup- remember to remove your makeup before bedtime- so oils don't accumulate and cause your face to breakout! I suggest removing your makeup with wipes then washing it with a cleanser to really remove the dirt (then moisturize)

 
7. With weather changes, do you think changing the way you put on your make up and changing how natural or intense the look might be is necessary?
you shouldn't change your look just because the season changed! I believe that your skincare routine should be changed though! During winter, the skin becomes drier.. so i def recommend using a heavier moisturizer and especially eye cream as the under eye area becomes very dry and fragile. No matter which season you are in- you should keep your makeup simple! Bold lips can mean simple makeup (when your eyes are simple and not overdone)- During summer- if you are tanned - you can always tone down on the foundation and powder as you already have a colored base- so you can work on other features. People believe that since it's winter i'll use dark colors, or if it is spring i'll use floral pastel shades- well- you can wear what you want in all seasons- there is NO rule for that to be honest- as long as the whole face looks flawless and easy on the eyes then it should be fine!

8. What style do you go for? Especially now that its winter?
My style is always- simple yet glamourous. I keep the focus on my eyes rather than the rest of the face. I focus on lashes, winged gel liner, defined crease & mainly the eyebrows(which change everything)! I personally love a soft colored lip- so i would stick to nudes or soft pinks! About winter, it doesn't change much for me! I'm more of a "wear any look any season anytime" ! As you know winter is more about the bold lips- crimson lips or dark violet- I love to do the crimson lips and a thick black eyeliner with false lashes- an instead of focusing on blush i focus on contouring the face. But as I said, seasons don't matter to me, so i wear any look any time of the year :)

 
9. Any make up brands you love more than others? And why?
Now that is a hard question! Having a gazzillion brands to choose from makes this very hard for me! Ok- so let me be specific- I have a favorite brand when it comes to specific parts of the face! For example- for complexion (foundation & correcting) i would def say Make up for ever! They specialize in complexion and create products that work great on the skin without letting the skin breakout- they are all about primers and correcting and having foundations invisible to the light & camera! When you ask me about the eyes & lips- i would say hands down- MAC… they have such highly pigmented eyeshadows and beautiful lipstick colors. And when you ask me about blushes- Illamasqua is the winner :) 

 
10. Where do you think girls go wrong when applying make up? 
I personally believe they go wrong in a lot of things. When it comes to makeup, you have to work on bringing out the best facial features and not OVER-DOING it… The trick is blending everything and making it look like as if it is not there- However, I still see many makeup mistakes such as:
-they wear the wrong foundation shade
-their powder is way darker than their skin tone
-eyeshadow edges are un-blended
- using a concealer for acne (turns out muddy looking)
- focusing on both eyes and lips at the same time- so you end up having a dark smoky eyes and dark bold lips- it's a bit too much
- unblended blush, which looks like a splash of color

And the list goes on and on… and on.. and on… :P 

 
11. Last but not least, what are your favorites this season? 
I absolutely love MAC's lip mix "crimson" which is only sold in MAC pro stores!
I had tons of fun doing this! Thanks to The Makeup Manual for sparing me some of her time! If you guys have any questions for her, you could leave them in my comments and I'd gladly hand them over to her and come back with a reply, you could also contact her through twitter here, and check out her blog here!
Until next time,
xoxo,

Make up: What can go wrong?

Hello readers! 

After a bunch of posts some of you might not be so interested in, I'm here to entertain! Well I hope.. 

Diamonds are a girl's best friend, but what are diamonds without a little fashion and beauty? Looking our absolute best is what makes us girls, is it not? But to look your absolute best, everything must go right. So here's where it could go wrong.. 

1. Using the wrong foundation 
Now this is one of the worst things you could do. If you're pale and you decide to appear a bit tanner, choosing a darker foundation is not the answer, you do not wanna look like you're wearing a pumpkin. The same applies to those with darker skin. Choosing lighter foundation will just make it seem like you fell face on in the sand. Even if there isn't much difference between your skin tone and the foundation, people will notice, trust me! 

Tip - I've been to many stores and the one thing they do every time I want to buy foundation is apply it on my hand to see if it goes with my skin. BIG MISTAKE. Your face isn't your hand,  just because it goes with your hand, doesn't mean it'll go with your face. So keep in mind, when you're searching for foundation, your clean, no make up on face is where you test it on. And never go for the colour you aspire to be. 

2. Skipping foundation, straight to concealer. 
Yet again, big mistake. Foundation was called foundation for a reason, and using concealer to cover your flaws without applying foundation is like building a house without walls. You don't want patches of concealer sitting on top of your skin like a lost dog. Apply a thin layer of foundation and use the concealer as a base coat. Lasts longer, looks better, much easier and effective. Also, make sure your foundation and concealer are in the exact same shade! 

3. Not using moisturizer
Time isn't always on our side, but moisturizer is by far the most important factor you need for healthy skin, which is why you need to spare a few seconds to moisturize. Most people don't moisturize because of their oily skin, well let me tell you, hydrating your skin properly will actually reduce over production of oil. Having make up on for too long damages your skin and so, it starts aging. Using moisturizer helps keep your skin healthy and young. So make sure you have 20 seconds just for moisturizing. What do you have to lose? 

4. Blusher like a clown 
There's a difference between rosy cheeks and a 'omg I've been hit in he face' look. The latter is certainly not flattering. People who literally look like they've pressed a pot of cream blush onto their cheeks and left a perfect circle most likely haven't looked in a mirror before they left the house. Beware the clown look.

Tip - blending blush and powder foundation into your brush gives your cheeks a much natural look.

5. Overdone eyebrows
Oh god.. The amount of girls I've seen with black tadpoles for eyebrows. It looks ridiculous. I have naturally brown, filled eyebrows so I don't have to draw them but even if you do, do not get carried away. Also, having blonde hair and filling your eyebrows with a dark shade is a huge no no. Keep a natural look in mind, no matter how intense of a look you're going for. 

6. Spider mascara 
One thing I'm terrified of is spiders. But seeing them disguised as someone's eyelashes is another thing, terrifying in a whole different level. I'm not saying thick eyelashes are a bad thing, but there are a lot of things you need to beware of and if you don't,  just forget about mascara..

First, make sure the mascara you buy, whether from a brand or a drugstore, isn't the sticky type, because that goes wrong right from the start. Second, before applying, make sure the brush is clean, it makes things a lot easier. Last but not least, when you're applying, don't overlay unless you need to. 

Well, that's all for now. I hope I've helped! If you enjoyed this post, stay tuned! I have a surprise that I can't wait to reveal. 

Stay beautiful,
xoxo,

We Teach Life, Sir.

Hello readers!

I've noticed my viewers going up and I'd just like to thank you all for that, it's very much appreciated!

Today's post is a little bit political, even though I'm not a huge fan. I read this poem and it lit this fire inside of me, so I thought I'd share..

A poem by Rafeef Ziadah, We Teach Life Sir.

Today, my body was a TV’d massacre.
Today, my body was a TV’d massacre that had to fit into sound-bites and word limits.
Today, my body was a TV’d massacre that had to fit into sound-bites and word limits filled enough with statistics to counter measured response.
And I perfected my English and I learned my UN resolutions.
But still, he asked me, Ms. Ziadah, don’t you think that everything would be resolved if you would just stop teaching so much hatred to your children?
Pause.
I look inside of me for strength to be patient but patience is not at the tip of my tongue as the bombs drop over Gaza.
Patience has just escaped me.
Pause. Smile.
We teach life, sir.
Rafeef, remember to smile.
Pause.
We teach life, sir.
We Palestinians teach life after they have occupied the last sky.
We teach life after they have built their settlements and apartheid walls, after the last skies,
We teach life, sir.
But today, my body was a TV’d massacre made to fit into sound-bites and word limits.
And just give us a story, a human story.
You see, this is not political.
We just want to tell people about you and your people so give us a human story.
Don’t mention that word “apartheid” and “occupation”.
This is not political.
You have to help me as a journalist to help you tell your story which is not a political story.
Today, my body was a TV’d massacre.
How about you give us a story of a woman in Gaza who needs medication?
How about you?
Do you have enough bone-broken limbs to cover the sun?
Hand me over your dead and give me the list of their names in one thousand two hundred word limits.
Today, my body was a TV’d massacre that had to fit into sound-bites and word limits and move those that are desensitized to terrorist blood.
But they felt sorry.
They felt sorry for the cattle over Gaza.
So, I give them UN resolutions and statistics and we condemn and we deplore and we reject.
And these are not two equal sides: occupier and occupied.
And a hundred dead, two hundred dead, and a thousand dead.
And between that, war crime and massacre, I vent out words and smile “not exotic”, I smile "not terrorist"
And I recount, I recount a hundred dead, a thousand dead.
Is anyone out there?
Will anyone listen?
I wish I could wail over their bodies.
I wish I could just run barefoot in every refugee camp and hold every child, cover their ears so they wouldn’t have to hear the sound of bombing for the rest of their life the way I do.
Today, my body was a TV’d massacre
And let me just tell you, there’s nothing your UN resolutions have ever done about this.
And no sound-bite, no sound-bite I come up with, no matter how good my English gets, no sound-bite, no sound-bite, no sound-bite, no sound-bite will bring them back to life.
No sound-bite will fix this.
We teach life, sir.
We teach life, sir.
We Palestinians wake up every morning to teach the rest of the world life, sir.
First of all, an applause to Rafeef for such a passionate, well written out, thought of poem. I admire her for that, really. And now to the purpose.. The Palestinian dream. For year after year after year, and for as long as every Palestinian can remember, they've been under invasions, getting bombed every second, every minute, every hour, but has anyone come to the rescue? Sure, people mention it. Of course, we see it in the news. But has anyone tried to help? All a Palestinian would like is to wake up one day and not have to listen to the sounds of bombings, gun shootings, and a person's last scream before their body hits the ground. Put yourself in their shoes for a second.. Just one second. Do you feel their pain? But after all that, a Palestinian boy smiles, a Palestinian mother bakes bread, and a Palestinian father rushes to bring them their needs. They fight for a day where they'll know what freedom is, they fight to live, they fight to love and they keep holding onto every inch of hope they can find. And right there, they teach us life. Right there, they teach the whole world, life.

I hope this inspires you, because no matter how far your dreams seems to be, put in mind, it's never far of reach. Whenever you feel like there's nothing you can do, put yourself in their shoes. Their tragedy is your lesson, learn it and use them as motivation.

* Note: You don't have to agree, it's my opinion and I'll welcome any disagreements.

Hand Full of Dust

...


"Yuck" a boy whispered, as a mother pulled her son away from a man, cleaning a land. A man.. Cleaning YOUR land.

But who knows what story this man holds? Any of you? 



 
Sadly, I do. He's a man that left home.. He's thousands of miles away from his children, wife, parents, friends, and there he is cleaning our roads, our streets, our neighborhood in hope of getting 100 dollars by the end of the month to feed his family. 

People move away seeing him, because he's "filthy", when in fact, he's cleaning OUR mess. 

Everyone has the worst impression of a cleaner, everyone looks down on him, everyone ignores him, people throw things at him, yet he bends down, picks up something one of us threw away, and stands up with a smile. But does anyone smile back? Rarely.. 

What have we become? Why is it that as years pass by, it gets harder to find an open minded person? 

Well kudos to Japan for knowing how important that man is, and actually labeling him as one of the greatest people in their community. Wanna know how much he gets paid there? Well.. Lemme give you a moment to guess.. 200? No. 500? Nope. 700? Guess again, 8000 dollars. But what's more beautiful is that people there actually help him, because in the end it's their streets he's cleaning. 

So why is it any different with us?You didn't throw that juice box, you didn't throw that newspaper, fine.. But what's stopping you from sharing a smile? 

After all, they are human, and they wouldn't be in this position if they didn't want to feed their family, and how nice is that? Going through so much,  just to put food on someone's plate. 

And here, I'll leave you to decide what you'll be doing.. 

P.s. Even a smile, can go a long way.

Reaching Out

 Hello lovely readers!


Feels like I haven't posted anything in ages, and I honestly missed entertaining you. So, I decided to tell you what I've been doing during all this time.

Well, our school has this project that 8 students get to work on. The whole purpose is to use creativity and imagination to inspire the future generation.

So on one hand, it gives us the ability to show our talents, and expand our imagination. And on the other hand, we reach out to the future generation, giving them motivation to follow their dreams no matter how far they seem to be.

I love the whole idea. One thing I was raised to do is follow my dreams ever since I was a kid. Exploring, learning and using my imagination to do the craziest things. And you all know, as kids, our dreams were beyond reality but that's the beauty of it, unlimited imagination! 

If you read my first post, you'd know that inspiring others has always been a goal. And well, this project gives me the chance to do so. The kids of our generation have it all, iPads, iPods, Blackberrys, Laptops, PS3, when all we had was a box of crayons, a colouring book and our backyard. That's actually a bad thing, handing kids all those tech gadgets stops them from imagining, it stops them from reaching out for something bigger because hide and go seek isn't fun enough anymore.

And that's where we step in, making things out of nothing to inspire kids. Giving them the chance to dream, imagine, and achieve.

It's being original, and not letting anything stand in your way, and that's what I love about it. 

I'm sorry if I bored any of you, but that's just a glimpse of what I've been doing, I hope you enjoyed. 

Keep on inspiring,
& come back for more.

Winter in Style

Hello Readers!

Sitting by the fire wearing your cosiest pair of pjs, wrapped up in a blanket and sipping on a nice cup of hot coco.. Can you feel it, yet? Marshmallows, chestnuts, cute sweaters, scarfs and loads of fun. Those are just a few things that make me love winter so much!

Leaving the warm weather, tanned skin and cute clothes can be hard, but hey, why leave your sense of fashion behind? Just because the weather changes, doesn't mean you can't look as good, change your style along with it! instead of that cute tank top, get that beautiful coat, and so on!


Here are some photos I found on pinterest, that I thought were goregoes!

#1:


 Not so wintery, I know but I love this dress! The boots are a great touch to keep warm, yet stay in style, you could always pair it up with a jean jacket and a red scarf, I think it would look fab. But depending on how cold it is where you live, well, layers, baby! I found a similar dress at The Gap, it has a jeansy colour though, so I'll probably be pairing it with a trench coat, white scarf and boots.


#2:


I just love this. I think it's classy, beautiful and it doesn't look like you're working too hard to look good. This outfit is a must this winter, and again, how cold it is in your area decides how thick your clothes should be.

#3:



Polka dot sweaters are way too pretty, but why pair them with a pair of jeans and just look dull? Add a splash of colour and brighten up your look. Again, these sweaters are a must!


I was really hoping to show more, but those are basically what most outfits were about.

*Note: If you own any of the photos, please let me know and I'll put your name/blog under the photo.

I hope you enjoyed this post, lovelies!

Stay tuned for more,

Stay Strong

The tragedy of a person dying because of hopelessness or frustration is devastating. Whether to friends, family, neighbors, or even to a random person just hearing about someone who commit suicide. 


Suicide has become the third leading cause of death. You might take it as a joke, or think those who have commit suicide did it for attention, but in reality, it is beyond that. 

And to those who think they do it for attention, take a second and think about it, does that honestly make sense? What attention would they get, when they're already dead?



I've decided to make this post, because the number of suicide notes on every social network has been increasing, in fact, the number of teens committing suicide is growing day by day.

You can't just ask a person why they want to commit suicide,  or tell them not to and think it'll change anything. They might not now, but the needy feeling to do so will come back. 

There are many reasons teenagers may go through that will make them want to commit suicide. Frustration, family problems, a disorder, and what not. I know what you're going through right now is hard, it may be too much and trust me, everyone has been through something that felt endless, no matter how that person's life seems perfect. 

You might have a lot on your shoulders, but it will get better. I don't care what people think, what people say, how it seems right now, it will get better. 

Suicide is never the answer. Harming yourself is NEVER the answer. Every second, every minute, every hour, someone in the world is fighting to live, fighting to keep living, holding on with all they have to see another day, and there you are, blessed with a life in your hands. Why throw it away? 

If you're getting bullied, would you really want to satisfy that bully by ending your life? Is that bully really worth it? If you're stressed, frustrated, depressed,  just take a deep breath and listen.. Life is given to you with so many blessings out there, just waiting for you to find them. Why give up? Don't you wanna know what your future holds? All you have to do is bare with everything right now,  just for this moment, it will get better. It always does no matter how unfair it may seem.

Again, suicide is never the answer. There are so many solutions to every single thing, don't hide it, don't eat yourself up, talk to someone, write it in a diary, let it out,  just don't give up.. Life's a test, pass it. You were given a life because you're able to live it whether it seems so right now, or not. 

I hope I reached out to at least some.. I know it's hard right now, but you can do it. Life's a climb but the view is great. Keep that in mind

I'm always here, you could be anonymous, or even show who you are, i'll always listen. Just know that someone out there cares..

Stay strong, 
xoxo,

Gossip Girl!

"And who am I? that's a secret I'll never tell..
xoxo, Gossip girl"



Hello readers!

What's more exciting than gossip, drama, love, friends, partying all gathered in a fashionable sense of style? Well, with Gossip Girl hitting the screens in 3 days, I thought what's better than doing a fashion post inspired by Gossip Girl itself?

I don't know about you, but I'm in love with Gossip Girl, whether it's the lies, the gossip or the incredible fashion sense. And who's more fashionable than the one and only, Blair Waldorf, and the it girl, Serena Van Der Woodsen?

LET'S START!

Blair Waldorf is very classy as we all see in every episode. Her style is just flawless but it never seems like she's trying too hard, which is what we all go for in every look, don't we?





How gorgeous is this? The dark colours give you an amazing
figure and you get to cover up your not-so-favourite features!
  


This dress is just fab! Feminine, classy, great shape
& a sprinkle of sexy! I'd defo wanna wear this
  


Now this is perfect for a day out, school,
an interview, and it just looks effortlessly beautiful!
  


Blair obviously loved this look and stuck to it for 3
whole seasons! I can never get sick of this look.
It's lovely for your first day of school too.
 

Show off your beautiful body shape wearing this,
for something casual or even a night out.
 
There you go, the amazing Blair Waldorf! I wasn't going for pretty pictures, so it was definitely hard searching for something that could suit almost everyone, since, well, Blair could make a potato sack look good.


Onto Serena Van Der Woodsen!

Well, most of us know Serena could turn up looking like a hobo, but with a name like hers, who cares? Her name is just unbelievably gorgeous! Serena is that blonde goddess who dominates the Upper East Side, she has sickening good looks, and always is the most optimistic girl of the bunch. And ever since GG started, every girl has wanted to look like her. After all, she is the 'it' girl, isn't she?



This, I LOVE. the two colours reflect on her
beautifully,
here's a plus side, it could look good on
you too!
I found a similar top at Forever 21,
and well, we all have black shorts, don't we?



 

This one is perfect for that sparkling,
eye catching look. Party, girls night out,

This is the look you wanna go for.
Gold compliments everyone, too!



this white tight fitted dress looks, classy, and effortlessly hot!
to show off your figure and not seem like you're over trying,
this dress is the perfect answer.
 

Flawless, Fun & Feminine!

  

Gorgeous, yet again! The different colours clash
perfectly, and this outfit is just amazing for anything!

Who wouldn't wanna look like a doll anyway?


Hair is always one of the most important elements
in EVERY look.
and this hairstyle is just too pretty!

I enjoyed making every part of this post! Gossip Girl is one of my favourite shows, so this was bliss! I hope you liked it just as much, I mean, Blair and Serena are just fashion icons, are they not?
Don't forget to watch the very first episode of season 5 this Monday, 8th of October! It's going to be amazing without a doubt!

Comment below and tell me what you think, how excited you are, and what you think of the upcoming episode!

Stay Fashionable,
xoxo,
Teen Diary!
