Nine Days of Taylor Swift

Hello and happy Sunday. I’ve been working on this post for over a month now, but finally everything is ready, and I can share it with you. Here’s the deal: after watching the video of Look What You Made Me Do by Taylor Swift, I decided I’d make a list of all the looks I saw and try and recreate them. That’s exactly what I did, and in doing so, I realized that these looks are perfect for a person who is getting started with makeup. Basically, if you can pull off these makeup looks, you’re good to go on virtually any occasion. Let’s get started, shall we?

1. The foolproof weekend look

The look 

This is the second look we see Taylor sporting in her video, when she’s in the throne all surrounded by snakes. When I say this look is the foolproof weekend look, I mean it’s casual enough for you to go shopping on a Saturday morning, but it also works if you’re going to have lunch with friends. In my opinion, it’s the perfect day-to-night look.

How to accomplish it 

Eyes: soft brown-to-golden smokey.

Lips: matte red.

Face: Contour and bronzer are a must. Also, use a coppery blush, preferably matte.

2. The classic night look 

The look

Forget what you’ve heard about not wearing heavy eye makeup with bold lipstick, or at least do so while trying this look. This is the first makeup look we’re able to see in detail, when Taylor is in the bathtub. It’s heavy and it’s intended to make a statement, which is why I think it’s perfect for a night out.

How to accomplish it

Eyes: Gray and black smokey, both on the lid and lower lash line. Yes, it’ll look bad before it looks good.

Lips: bright red.

Face: Contour, red blush, and a ton of highlight.

 

 

 

3. The soft-core bubblegum lips

The look 

This is my kind of everyday look for work. It seems like you put a ton of effort on it, but really, you didn’t. It is what I wear when I have a cold but (obviously) don’t want to look sick. It’s what Taylor’s wearing in the car crash scene, but her eyes are covered by sunglasses, so the main focus are the lips.

How to accomplish it

Eyes: Soft gold smokey.

Lips: Hot pink with a lighter shade in the center.

Face: Soft contour, and pink blush.

4. Vampy Chic

The look

This is the Taylor-in-the-swing look on steroids. When I go vamp I go full-on vamp, and that means dark bold lips. If you’re allowed to wear this at work, go for it. I can’t, so I wear it during the weekend. It’s perfect for fall, or even fall-to-winter looks.

How to accomplish it 

Eyes: brown smokey.

Lips: dark berry.

Face: contour, bronzer, golden blush.

 

 

 

 

 

5.No-Makeup Makeup Look 

The look

Whether you’re all for the natural looks, or you’re like me and you like people to know just how much makeup you’re wearing, you need this look in your life. The no-makeup or natural makeup look will come in handy when you have ten minutes or less to get ready but still want to put a little something on your face. Taylor sports this look when she’s getting on top of a bike, police-style.

How to accomplish it: 

Eyes: prime and then seal with a nude eyeshadow. Tightline with black pencil eyeliner.

Lips: I’m wearing a nude lipgloss with a hint of pink.

Face: powder, soft contour, bronzer, and a matte blush.

 

6. The hardcore bubblegum lips

The look

This is a look you can wear to work, but it’s still edgy. It’s like the soft-core bubblegum lips’ older sister. Everything about this look is sharp and intended to make a statement, but still in a classy way that is appropriate for work. This is Taylor’s look when she’s wearing a hoodie and has a golden bat, and looks like she just stole a bank.

How to accomplish it

Eyes: a wash of ashy, gray-based brown. Reverse smokey eyes, and a thick black eyeshadow top lash line.

Lips: bold, purple-based pink lipstick.

Face: contour, soft bronzer, pink blush.

 

 

7.The always classy 

The look

Gold and red is a foolproof combination, and it’s effortlessly classy. Taylor is wearing it when she’s on top of the pile of past Taylors (that sounds weird, but it makes sense if you watch the video). Personally, this is one of my go-to looks for special occasions at work because I don’t really have much time to do something super elaborate but I need to look better than usual.

How to accomplish it

Eyes: gold and brown halo eye.

Lips: brown-based red.

Face: contour, bronzer, bronzed blush, highlighter.

 

8. The nude on steroids

The look

This is the look Taylor wears when she enters this room and is followed by wearing mesh and boots. All in all, it’s not super harsh, but it has pops of color, like the eyebrows, the blue under the eyes, and the brown lips. You can make changes to this look if you think it’s too much for you.

How to accomplish it

Eyes: A wash of gray-based brown. Reverse blue smokey eye.

Lips: brown liquid eyeliner topped with brown lipgloss.

Face: Contour, matte blush.

9.The Dominatrix

The look 

In the same we need a natural look “just in case”, we all need a super sexy, vampy, goth look just in case. I wore this for work one day when I didn’t have any classes, but it works for weekends and nights out just as well. Taylor wears this look when she’s talking to her subjects. She’s wearing black and red, which are the colors I’d go for when dressing up for this look.

How to accomplish it

Eyes: gray-based brown cut crease and reverse smokey eye.

Lips: dark red tint and matte red liquid lipstick on top.

Face: soft contour, red blush, highlighter.

Those are the nine looks I re-created and explained here for you. If there’s any other look you want me to try and make a post on, let me know in the comments, and I’ll be happy to help.

Happy Sunday!

Love, Miss Camila

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our “Pete the Cat Day”

Hello and happy Saturday. Let me tell you about the time, not too long ago, when I planned a whole week of classes around a set of Pete the Cat books.

I’m usually super organized when lesson planning. I actually made a yearly plan so that I only have to read it and based on it plan each week. I’m a teacher, however, and that means that every once in a while I’ll get an idea that has me pausing all my previous planning and working on something entirely different. That’s completely understandable, no?

So when my dad sent me a message saying that while grocery shopping he’d seen a set of six Pete the Cat books for about twelve bucks, I decided the following week would be “Pete the Cat week” with my kinder boys. Now I’m not that crazy, and I actually have to work on some specific topics with my students that are not related to the James Dean books, so I decided that I’d indeed work on the books, but not spend entire lessons on them.

I ended up bargaining with my crazy-teacher self and finally agreed that, given that we had six books, I could read one each day as an opener to our class. Monday, our sixth day, was “Pete the Cat Day.”

After reading the last of the books, we did a directed drawing exercise. I thought I’d taken pictures of our crafts, but didn’t, sorry. The boys drew and colored Pete using crayons and markers, following the directions from the video by Art for Kids Hub, which is a channel we love.

I have twelve kids in my Kinder class, which is perfect because that means I could pair them up and give each team a book.

I placed a book on each table (which are shared), and then made a list of the books.

I

 

My boys can’t read in English yet, so my purpose in giving them the books was for them to look at the pictures and try to retell the story either by what they saw or what they remembered.

They had around four minutes to read each book, before I announced they had to go to another table.

It was a fun experience, and I think they enjoyed it as much as I did!

If you have any other idea for next year’s “Pete the Cat Day,” or maybe another theme I can use in my classes, please let me know in the comments.

Happy teaching!

Such a Refreshing Read

Hello and happy Wednesday. Every once in a while I encounter a book that doesn’t follow the typical contemporary YA structure, and it is very refreshing when that happens. Don’t get me wrong, I love Jennifer E. Smith’s books because they are all very typical YA novels, but I love it when I get into a book and realize it’s not going to turn out the way I thought it would.

When I started reading The Geek’s Guide to Unrequited Love by Sarvenaz Tash, my initial thought was “oh, okay, I know how this ends already, but let’s see what happens.” I was super wrong though, and I changed my mind about what was going to happen at the end like a hundred times, though let me tell you, when I finished the book, I was very pleased.

You know that I’m a radical feminist, right? And so I adore strong female characters, but to me there’s this sort of idea that YA is mostly for female audiences because most of the main characters are female. And, honestly, out of all the books I read each year, about 90% have female main characters, so yeah, it’s great, and incredibly refreshing when the main character is a guy. Oh yea, by the way, and this goes for you people out there who “censor” books just because you feel like it, this book was written by a woman, so I’m still supporting female authors out there, I just want some variety in what I read, okay?

Okay, so our main character is not just an average high school guy, because there’s no fun in that. He is a die-hard geek, and proud of it. Before there was this idea, both in books and in real life, that geeks were this socially inept people who had no friends (or were friends with each other) and who could only be truly happy if they got a makeover and stopped being geeks. Well, we know that nowadays that’s not how things work and that’s actually cool to be a geek, which makes this book even better.

I loved the diversity in this book, but I also think it makes sense that our main character’s friends are Persian, Japanese, and an American Jew. I say it makes sense because they live in the New York area, which is a typically diverse region in terms of people with different ethnic and religious backgrounds.

Graham, our main character, and Roxana, his best friend and apparently the love of his life (though she doesn’t know it yet), are partners in this comic book/graphic novel writing project. Basically Graham writes and Roxana draws, and it was super interesting to read about their process in writing and drawing because comic books and graphic novels aren’t really my thing, so I had no idea about the making of them.

This book is perfect for a weekend or a day off. First, it’s addictive, like once you start, I’m sorry, you’re going to want to read it until you’re done. But honestly, it’s a very fast read because the chapters are super short. I personally don’t like big books, and I have a very hard time reading them, so the fact that the chapters are short is encouraging to me. And also, if you can’t take that day or full weekend to read, you can easily squeeze in a chapter every now and then and it’ll take you ten minutes or less.

Here’s the magic of this book and the author’s writing: despite it being a short book, it was incredibly detailed and descriptive, to the point where I felt like I was watching a movie. This book tells everything you need to feel like you’re in the same place as the characters, seeing what’s going on as if it were taking place right in front of your eyes. It was amazing. Also, yes, this book takes place in NY Comic-Con, so as I read I just wished I could attend one of those big conventions myself. One day, though, one day.

Not everything was perfect in this book, though, obviously, I didn’t expect it to be. I was, however, exasperated when I read the “breath I didn’t know I was holding” line. Like, seriously? This book is genius, why insert such a crappy and unnecessary line? And now that we’re in the subject of what I didn’t like, I have to admit that Roxana wasn’t my favorite person at all. I didn’t like her one bit. Oops, sorry not sorry.

And we’ve reached the end of this book. Have you read or do you know about another book where the main character is a geek? Let me know about it!

Happy reading!

Love, Miss Camila

 

September Ipsy Glam Bag Unbox + Review

Hello and happy Sunday. It’s time for another unboxing and review of my Ipsy Glam Bag. Let’s get started, shall we?

Elizabeth Mott Pop! Goes the Shadow in Toasted

This shade is like a rusty gray-based brown, and it’s amazing for a fall look. I’ve been wearing it on its own, and as an accent shade when I do halo eyes or a simple smokey eye in the outer corner. The only down side to it, in my opinion, is the size. I’d gotten samples of eyeshadow before but this one is just tiny.

Luxie Rose Gold Medium Angled Brush

I love getting brushes from Ipsy, and this one is just the perfect size and shape for doing a halo eye, which is currently my go-to eye look.

 Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Finish Radiance Primer

This is one of those “it” products that everyone who know anything about makeup has to try in their lifetime. It’s shiny and has somewhat of a rose-gold undertone, so I’d say it’s definitely for a dewy look, and for warm to neutral skin tones. It leaves the skin looking flawless, with no traces of texture whatsoever.

Pixi by Petra Beauty Blush Duo in Peach Honey

This duo is the perfect product for a natural makeup day. For me, when I’m going for a “no makeup look,” I pay close attention to my face, to make my skin look flawless and healthy in a natural way. This blush duo will give you a hint of healthy color, and a lot of shine. I always wear both products combined, but you can just focus on the blush or add the highlighting part to another makeup look. I do have to say, if your skin has a lot of texture, it will show.

Skinfood Egg White Perfect Pore Cleansing Foam

My skin had been driving me a little bit crazy because I was breaking out more than usual, but since I started using this cleansing foam, it kind of went back to normal. I use it as a face wash, not as a makeup removing foam, so I wouldn’t know how well it works that way. As a wash, though, it leaves my skin feeling soft and clean.

Finally, you can see the Ipsy headband, which I got by redeeming some points I’d earned. I think that’s a great feature Ipsy has, and that works perfectly. So far I’ve gotten three rewards and I’ve fully enjoyed them.

If you are also subscribed to Ipsy, tell me about what you got in the comments below.

Happy Sunday!

How I Use My iPad in the Classroom

 

STUDENTS.pngHello and happy Saturday. If you have a fully equipped classroom with a smartboard and iPads, computers or other electronic devices available to some or all of your students, this post is not for you. I mean, congratulations, you are one lucky teacher, but honestly, this post is for us teachers who lack a ton of technological resources in our classroom, and who therefore have to seek strategies to make the best out of what we have.

I’m not complaining here because I’m actually lucky to have a laptop for myself and classrooms equipped with smart TVs. I have and HDMI cable that can be plugged into my computer, and I also have a personal cable I can connect to my iPhone and iPad. When I say “personal” I mean I paid for it, and did so gladly because it has improved my classes in many ways.

Today I’m going to tell you about two ways in which I use my iPad because you might want to take note and put them into practice in the future. So, after this long-ass introduction, let’s get started, shall we?

1. I use it to play music

Yes, having a smart TV means I have access to the YouTube app, but let’s be real here, sometimes the internet is super slow and videos take forever to load, and also sometimes I don’t want to search for every single video but rather have a playlist.

I talked about this in a previous post , how I have Spotify premium so I can be able to play music online. I have this playlist called Classroom Jams, which I love and I’m always feeding with more awesome songs.

What I do is plug my iPad or iPhone to the smart TV using my HDMI adapter, put it on “Airplane Mode,” and play my previously-downloaded music from Spotify. I lock the screen of whichever device is connected so that my students don’t get distracted by what’s displayed on the TV.

2. I display worksheets/ digital posters or pictures

Most of my students can’t read or write yet, at least not in English, which is their second language. That means that most of the times I do the reading for them, and have them respond to what I say orally rather than in written form. That means, there are many times in which I don’t need a worksheet for each of my students because they’ll do nothing with it other than look at what I’m showing them. What I do is have said worksheet/poster/picture saved in my iPad and display it on the smart TV.

I’ve done this with warm-up activities in which I display a worksheet with a series of questions and ask them orally, but have them written as a visual aid, and also while explaining positional words through a poster. This saves me time I’d usually have to spend writing on the board, and it helps the planet because then I don’t have to take a ton of copies that in the end are useless.

Because I download this images, I don’t need to have internet access, which in some cases is a factor that determines the success or failure of a class. I mean, what if you plan a whole class using and app or site that requires Internet connection, only to realize you don’t have any?

I’m sure there are tons of other ways to use your iPad in class, and if you know of one, please tell me about it in the comments.

Happy teaching!

Love, Miss Camila

 

 

All.The.Feels

Hello and happy Wednesday. As much as I like fluffy books, I’m a sucker for books that make me get in touch with my feelings, and not just the happy, bubbly ones. I think that’s a reason why I love Colleen Hoover so much, because her books have that effect on me.

For some reason, all of Colleen Hoover’s books I’ve come across with have been audiobooks, although there are some on my TBR list I am going to read, not listen to. Finding Cinderella is book number 2.5 in the Hopeless series, which I started listening to last year. I have yet to read book number 2, though. There are some series that you *have* to read in order so that you can understand the plot; Finding Cinderella, however, can easily be read as a standalone book, or without having read book number 2, and you’ll still understand everything.

Personally, I love Colleen Hoover’s writing style, although I wouldn’t be able to read (or listen to) more than one book every once in a while. That is, I need to take a mental break after I finish one of her books. Her awesome style was amazingly complemented by the narration of Jason Carpenter. Like, honestly, he made me feel like I was really listening to a high school guy.

One thing I always appreciate about this author’s books, and that is present in Finding Cinderella, is the fact that it’s very realistic regarding the way teenagers behave. I’ve stated in previous posts that I don’t like how some realities of a teenager’s life are portrayed, and I stand by it, which is why I admire an author that can capture some issues without seeming to encourage their readers to follow a certain behavior. In Finding Cinderella specifically, sex is a constant topic, but it’s treated in a very real and objective way.

Because this is a companion novel to the Hopeless series, the main characters from the previous books are present, although taking a secondary role. I love when authors do that, when they take a story’s secondary characters and give them their own story, and I think it enriches the whole universe the author has created. It was nice to see what Sky and Holder were up to, but again, not having read the second book didn’t affect my understanding of Finding Cinderella in any way nor did it spoil any details for me.

The characters from this story are Six, Sky’s best friend, who I knew from Hopeless, and Daniel, who’s Holder’s best friend. The story is told from Daniel’s perspective, and he’s just so analytical all the time and such a refreshing character. Besides that, the story is really intense, but in a good way, like you want to hear what happens next as opposed to being overwhelmed by all that’s happening.

The plot itself is filled with stuff that I’d roll my eyes about if this were any other author writing about it, but that work perfectly thanks to Colleen Hoover’s genius mind. There’s a bit of secret romance, that makes the story very addictive, and it just flows in a way that constantly keeps the reader hooked. Finding Cinderella is, at least from what I could get, the resolution to the whole Hopeless series, although, honestly, I’d love to have a follow-up novel and see what happens to Sky, Holder, Daniel, and Six in university.

Have you read or listened to anything by Colleen Hoover? What did you think?

Happy reading!

Sensebox “L’Occitane” Unboxing

Hello and happy Sunday. I don’t know if I’ve already said this before, but I absolutely love L’Occitane. The products from this brand are more expensive than what I’m used to spending, but I totally splurge on them.

Recently Sensebox, a Colombian subscription box, sent out a special L’Occitane box, and I was in heaven. I was so excited about what I got, that I decided to share my thoughts on the products I received. Let’s get started, shall we?

 

Cherry Blossom Shower Gel

I love flower-scented things, and this is amazing. It’s sweet, but fresh at the same time, and not overpowering. I would totally use this set of fragrances for my everyday life if the products weren’t as expensive (or I actually had some more money to spend on them).

Almond Supple Skin Oil

I have oil for my hair, but I didn’t have anything for my body, so I’m happy that now I do. Because I got the sample size, I got this jar with a screw lid, and it was a little inconvenient to apply, but other than that I’m in love. The scent of the oil is super soft and nice, and the feeling I get on my skin is wonderful.

Karité Hand Cream 

I’m that kind of person who collects hand lotion. I love the size and the packaging of the L’Occitane ones. This particular lotion has a super soft scent, and leaves my hands feeling nice and moisturized. I think I have one of this lotions in every purse I own.

Cherry Blossom Hand Cream 

This one has a stronger scent than the one I previously talked about. It’s the same scent as the shower gel, though in my opinion it’s more concentrated because lotion is thicker than gel. If you’re looking to treat yourself or give somebody a nice present, buy a Cherry Blossom kit and it will be highly appreciated.

Immortelle Precieuse Serum and Cream 

If like me, you have skin care days when you don’t wear makeup and instead put nice products on your face, use the Immortelle Precieuse serum  and cream duo. My face felt super soft and hydrated. This is something I’d splurge on for those skin care days.

Do you like L’Occitane? What is your favorite product from this brand?

Happy Sunday,

Love, Miss Camila

A Monstrous Way of Teaching Body Parts

Hello and happy Saturday. A while ago I shared this post with you in which I shared how I taught body parts to my Kindergarten boys. This new school year I decided that I could teach some of the vocabulary to my Pre-K boys while reinforcing vocabulary on attributes of shape, size, and color. In today’s post, I’ll share what I put together. Let’s get started, shall we?

Okay, so I feel like I first need to clarify that I am an ESL teacher, so that’s why I teach vocabulary to my students in such an explicit way, though I’m pretty sure this activities will work just fine for native English speakers.

I introduced the main body parts using songs, so obviously Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes was a total must. The reason why I like using this song is that it also focuses on parts of the face, which is a topic we explored later on in the week.

Midway through our mini-unit, I decided to do a Hokey Pokey contest, though it was different from the one I’d previously done with my Kindergarten boys. In this one, the places were arranged in a circle, and I called each boy to the center to dance and sing a part of the song, moving a specific body part.

Before we move on to the actual core of this post and the mini-unit, I want to introduce you to Open Shut Them, a song about opposites that I played to my students as a warm up on Monday and they absolutely adored and started to spontaneously singing while doing other stuff. It’s not really about body parts, but it’s a cool warm-up song.

To focus on the parts of the face, review attributes of color, shape, and size, I introduced my pre-k boys to Go Away, Big Green Monster! by Ed Emberley. If you have the book, read it to your students, but if you don’t, you can display the video. I displayed the video on the classroom’s TV, and paused each time a new part of the face was introduced. I also progressively drew my own monster on the board as different parts and colors were mentioned.

This was probably the first time I formally talked about colors with my boys, but they easily learned the names of most of the ones in the book.

I gave each student a handout to color the monster’s face, which you can find at Ed

Emberley’s page. We did some directed coloring, using the video as a guide. This also was a good complement to a following-instructions lesson I’d done the previous week.

 

 

 

Here are the finished monsters. Luckily, all the boys followed instructions in terms of what color to use for each part (except for some red teeth, but I let it slide).

I cut each monster and glued it to a colored paper. I used yellow and red so that I could differentiate between my two pre-k classes.

Now, this is an idea I’ve worked on for a few weeks, but I’ll finally be able to implement it. I wanted to show it to you in action, but that would’ve meant waiting a full week to write this post.

If you follow me on Instagram, then you’ve already seen this post of me working on the Build-a-Monster centers you can find at  Somewhat Simple  while watching a vlog from Pocketful of Primary.

 

I thought, what a better way to review body parts and integrate our monsters theme than having the boys build their own monsters?

I divided them by body parts so that you could see them in the picture, and made some labels to use at the moment of the class.

My idea is to do a whole-group activity first, having each boy draw a part from a bag and sort it into different cups (which will have the yellow labels I made), and then once the parts are sort them, have the cups on my table for students to pick parts and create their monster, in pairs or small groups.

What are other monster-theme activities I could do with my pre-k boys? Let me know in the comments!

Happy teaching!

Love, Miss Camila

 

 

My Book Club-Ish

GOING ON.png

Hello and happy Wednesday. Can you believe it’s November already? I honestly can’t, I mean, my birthday is in a few days and I feel like this year has gone by incredibly fast.

Book-wise, it’s been a great month, and not just because of what I’ve read but rather the nice experiences I’ve had regarding books. Let me explain because right now I’m not making too much sense. My father turned 53 in May, and for his birthday, as has been tradition for a few years now, I gave him a book. Only I didn’t just give him a book; I made him a bookish treasure chest (click here to see how I made it).

Inside the book I gave him, I wrote a note that said I’d bought the same book so that we could read at the same time and have sort of a book club. You see, for years my dad had asked me for book recommendations and we talked about what he was reading, which I’d often read already, but it was something informal, something casual.

I read a lot in English, and I only review books in English, but Spanish is my first language and for every four or five books in English I read, I do as well one in Spanish. My tastes are very different in both languages, though I don’t know if that happens to anyone else. With my dad, we only read books in Spanish; he knows English but doesn’t read the books I do in that language.

So far we’ve read two books since we decided to establish our club, but it’s something we share and I love that we have that for ourselves. Do you have a book club? Official or not? Tell me in the comments below!

Happy reading!

Fandom of the Month Unboxing (1/3)

 

Hello and happy Sunday. We all know I’m a sucker for both makeup and subscription boxes, but what I probably haven’t told you is that I’m also obsessed with jewelry, even more so if it’s fandom jewelry.

That’s actually one of the reasons why I wanted to try Fandom of the Month in the first place, and I think the name is self-explanatory. Another reason why I was interested was the price point, and I mean, if $13 a month for a box filled with jewelry goodies is not an amazing deal for you, I seriously don’t know what is.

I paid for a three-month subscription a long time ago, but only recently got my first box. I’m not sure what month it was for, but I know the theme was Merlin.

Let’s start with the non-jewelry items, okay? First I got a magnet, which I think is super cute, so it’s now next to my Eva Perón magnet on my board at home. I believe everything came inside a pretty little bag, which now holds some mini-pens I was given last year on Love and Friendship Day (which is the Colombian equivalent of Saint Valentine’s, if you were wondering).

Now, for the accessories, let me start with the ones I haven’t worn yet, that is, the earrings. I really like the red and gold, and I think I could totally pull them off during the holidays for parties. They are a little bit too big for my taste, considering that my ears are filled with piercings, so I guess when I wear them, I’ll have to wear smaller pieces so that everything looks nice and not too crammed. They’re a bit heavy as well, but that’s because of their size.

I’ve already worn and absolutely swear by the other items. I love the quote on the bracelet, which goes “None of us can choose our destiny and none of us can escape it.” I know the theme is Merlin, but doesn’t that quote have a Game of Thrones kinda vibe to it? It also has a dragon charm, which obviously reminded me of Daenerys, so that’s obviously a plus. I have wide wrists, but the bracelet fit perfectly.

The sword-in-the-stone necklace is just beautiful and super classy. I layered it with a shorter gold necklace and it looked amazing. I’m really picky with necklaces, but this one is just how I like them, long so I don’t feel like I’m choking, and big enough but not incredibly flashy or chunky.

Finally we have the ring, which I’d seen over at Instagram. It is probably the most extra item I know, and for that reason I adore it. I mean, it’s an actual 3-D castle, it doesn’t get any better than that. It is big, but it’s not the biggest ring I own. There was a time when I decided I’d collect chunky rings, and let me tell you, this isn’t chunky at all, at least for me. It is big enough, though, to wear it by itself, or maybe with smaller rings on your other fingers, which is how I wear it.

I’m obsessed with jewelry and fandom boxes, so if you know of any you think I should try, let me know in the comments.

Happy Sunday!

Love, Miss Camila
