I know I haven’t been on in a while, been really busy with school! But thought I’d let you all know about my awesome adventure at Walmart today, I waited 5 hours in my tiny town of Belmont, North Carolina in the Walmart, stepping out of line every hour or so to use the bathroom and buy food and drinks and 5 hours later I got to meet my idol, this amazing singer and beautiful and nice lady. Kellie Pickler J







She signed my guitar and a CD and sang with me, gave me a huge hug, listened to my singing and complimented my outfit, my voice, my hair. She was the absolute sweetest thing in the world and im so glad I got to meet her. One of the best days of my life. Such a wonderful inspiration and she was so so nice, I love her even more now. My life is complete everyone. J <33333 I love you Kellie.

11 random facts about myself

3) My room is NEVER clean…but seriously, If it was clean I’d never find anything.

4) I LOVE Indie folk music. Iron and wine is amazing, look them up! J

5) I really enjoy going to plays but I don’t go nearly as often as I’d like to.

6) Rainy days are my favorite. Those days its pouring and you have nowhere to be. You can watch movies and cuddle up on the couch with hot chocolate and homemade pizza and do nothing all day. They are even better when Hunter decides to join me. 
7) I am in a club called Project Unify and I help out with the Special Olympics. There is nothing better than seeing those kids running across the finish line, their faces are filled with joy and they are so proud of themselves. I love being a part of that.

10) I have more clothes than any human being needs. 
11) My socks never, ever match. c:

Questions :)

What is your favorite color to wear?
 Usually white, I like the way white looks on people…elegant but you can really have some fun with white by going with some super colorful accessories
.
Do you have any piercings or tattoos? Or do you plan on getting any?
I have 7 ear piercings! I really want a nose ring one day and I do plan to get a tattoo, only one or two little ones would be nice.

What is your favorite film?
Titanic…I cry every time.

Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging to get my ideas out there and to get opinions on my outfits, hair, and everything else I post. I adore fashion, I found that it’s a great way to express myself and I knew blogging about something I loved this much would really make me happy.

Do you have a favorite motto/saying?
Well, I am a positive person. I am really about living life because I have known many people who weren’t lucky enough to live a long, happy life like I am doing right now. I say a lot, “Life is too short to miss out on being really happy.” That saying couldn’t be more true. This life is great, beautiful, hard, sad, exciting and of course, short. Be happy or you’ll miss so many of the great moments.

Do you have any pets?
Yes I do. I have a fish named Ponyboy, a cat named Holly and two dogs, Jack and Nola. I really want to get a kitten as well and I am searching for a good place to get one right now.
J

What do you think is your biggest achievement?
Gosh…I don’t know! Probably finishing all the twilight books in a week before the last movie came out, I didn’t have the other movies and I hadn’t seen them since they came out and I needed to catch up. :b

Backpack or handbag?
I’m more of a satchel kind of girl. I really dislike those tiny straps on purses. I like my purse with the long strap, so basically like Indiana Jones.
 

What are your favorite top 5 products to use in your makeup bag?
Well I could totally answer this question if I had 5 items in my makeup bag or if I even had a makeup bag! I always just have some Covergirl mascara, whichever one I decided to buy and chapstick. Oh, and I bring one of my many lipsticks with me if I decide to wear some that day.

Foundation or BB cream?
Neither. The only makeup I really wear is mascara and sometimes lipstick and occasionally eye shadow and blush when I’m going somewhere fancy.


Blog you'd recommend & why?
I’d recommend The Sist3rs, (
thesist3rs.blogspot.co.uk) I really love their blog because its in more than one person’s perspective and I’m always happy to see that they posted something new but of course I’d also recommend Lizzie’s blog ( head-full-of-flowers.blogspot.co.uk). It’s really different and unique, I love sitting down and reading it. I get some really great ideas.

Long time no blog... :) Hi girls. Sorry I have been slacking, going to try to keep it to one blog a week. Well today was Breast cancer awareness day! Of course i rocked some wonderful pink! My cousin is a breast cancer survivor and i couldn't be more proud of her or happy for her and all the other cancer survivors out there. No matter what cancer it is, you survived an i couldn't be happier. For those who are suffering from it now, I pray for you everyday. ALL OF YOU! Stay strong and positive and hope for a cure, everyone hope for a cure! I read a lot about scientists out there researching cancer cures and they seem to be getting a lot of good work done so keep your fingers crossed and your hopes high. :)



Next, I would like to discuss these amazing shoes i bought... :O (BELOW!)
 

 They are quite wonderful if i do say so myself. TOTALLY comfortable! And the colors on the top are great when wearing a plan shirt of cardigan or anything. They are very warm as well and i wore then when it was raining the other day and my feet stayed completely dry. Imagine my happiness because usually if you wear moccasins in the rain your feet are completely soaked within a couple minutes. These were a great buy. Completely cute for fall and winter and they seem very sturdy too so I am just very excited about them. :) They were $30 at Shoe Carnival! 
Also as you can see in the picture, i now own not one but three pairs of boyfriend jeans. <3 I'm in love. They are some what high waisted and very loose but very flattering for every body type i'm sure. I got them for $20 at Target (They were on sale so act fast!) But i got different colors of denim and i LOVE THEM! They look great with these shoes and a tshirt for a laid back, comfortable look. Perfect for a lazy day, out shopping, or i like to wear them while doing school work at the coffee shop downtown. :p Whatever you choose. They are great for many things! I highly recommend those as well. 
And lastly for tonight Id like the show you guys my outfit tomorrow. :)
By the way ladies, Walmart actually really stepped up their game with clothing. Not even kidding! :O


~Dark Creme sweater: Walmart! ($13)
~Black, grey, and Creme hat: WALMART! ($6)
~Yellow tights: WALMART!!!!! ($6)
~Brown combat boots: Charlotte Russe (Bought on sale for $20 but normal price is $40)
I literally bought most of that from walmart...i only spent $25 on perfect sweater, an adorable hat, and super cute tights! Thats how much a sweater at Forever 21 or anywhere else costs...probably more actually!
GO TO WALMART!!!! :D


Decided to go with an over sized sweater, tights, and combat boots for a nice fall day. I added a hat since its supposed to be super cold tomorrow! Now girls, let me tell you this...I am all for going out and buying a sweater way to big and wearing it as a somewhat short dress :p with leggings or tights. Really. Its perfect. Comfortable yet cute. This sweater is an extra large! I wear a small or medium. Some sweaters you can't do this with because they wont just be long they will be WAY too wide and will not be very flattering. But some sweater like this one is perfect. Long and a little wide obviously but not too wide that it seems to swallow you. haha. So be careful with that but otherwise you should try out the over sized sweater look. Buy some leggings and go big in the size of the sweater and feel comfiness like never before. What I also recommend is combat boots. They are very in right now so many girls have them but if you dont. You should invest in some. They are sturdy, great for winter with jeans or leggings and also great with dresses and tights. They are a great finish to a warm winter or fall outfit.

Colorful tights? I know a couple of you are saying no way right now. But really, its a great addition to an outfit. Some winter outfits seem so bland. Add some bright tights and its perfect! I picked my yellow ones for this outfit because they seemed very fallish but go for any color you like. Hate yellow? Go for a light blue or a red! Even purple or green! Go out of your comfort zone. (and go out of your comfort zone for 6 dollars at Walmart! ;p)
and to end off my post...HATS. HATS.HATS!!! Go for it! Go out a buy a bunch of hats to match every outfit you have. Hats and scarfs are perfect accessories and some people think you should only wear them when its below zero or snowing but you can really use a hat to finish everything off. I decided against a scarf for this and threw in the hat and i think it was a good pick. It completely it and will keep my head warm as well. So dont be afraid to try different hats, for both fashion and warmth. :)

Happy late Fall everyone!! I hope it has been great and you are rocking you fall colors and leggings. :)

Well hello girls! and guys maybe! :p I missed you all.
Glad to have my internet back. :) So, my outfit from today is below!!

~Jeans: American Eagle ($35)
~Silky shirt: (close up below) Love 21 ($24)
~Grey jacket: Sashimi ($28)
~Brown Oxfords: shoe carnival ($30)



I LOVE this shirt, its totally different and completely comfy. I love the colors and i think its just a fun shirt and then i am in love with my brown oxfords. I have black and grey too but these are my favorite. They are comfortable, stylish, they hold up very well, and they go good with many different outfits. I suggest these to you guys. seriously. Youll love them as much as i do.

Then to finish off my outfit i added this simple necklace. I found it at a tiny antique store in my town and i love it. I didnt want something with too much going on since my shirt already has a bunch going on. Also, never do a shirt with ruffles at the top with a crazy necklace!!! I beg of you! Just dont do it, really...
Anyway! :b I love this necklace and of course i like this because its different and unique as well.


 And now for hair, i actually ended up leaving my hair natural like in this picture..well a little less messy :b and i just did a fast fish tail braid and went on with my day. I am completely for leaving your hair alone and doing something simple. Its so much easier and you dont feel like you have to check it to make sure the curls stayed in or whatever other hair issues you have. It was also a good way to complete my look and it looked quite adorable if i do say so myself. :)

I hope you days that ive missed have been great!! xoxoxoxoxx

9.21.2013

So girls, i hope your mornings have been good so far, i know mine has! Coffee, music, and my favorite book. Im a happy Maura. But anyway, here is my outfit for the day! Trying to stay warm!

~Black leggings: Target ($12)
~Cream long sleeve sweater: The Loft ($25)
~Colorful scarf: Forever 21 ($10)
~and the lace head band and boots are again mentioned in other posts so i guess you have to read those to find out! :)

I love pairing leggings with sweaters and scarfs and boots c: 
I have so many pairs of leggings and i think they are perfect for fall and winter, plus i think we all love the leggings and combat boots look. Add a scarf to that and its a perfect and cute Winter outfit! oh, and its warm and totally comfy!

and to end of this post id like to give my amazing boyfriend of almost over a year a little shoutout for always coming shopping with me and giving me opinions on my clothes like he actually knows what looks good with what. :p and for buying me clothes and shoes because he understands how much I love them. I love you Hunter c: Have an awesome day everyone and ill be back tonight for another post!!

9.19.2013

 So my mind is going blank tonight! Sorry guys. I can at least give you my outfit for tomorrow, thank god its Friday!!!!


~White lace dress: Forever 21 ($30)
~Jean vest with hood: Charlotte Russe ($30) A little pricey for that but it was a must have!
~Steve Madden boots: (mentioned in my last post!!)
 ~Home made necklace! Got everything at Micheal's for about $10
~Flower head band: Weirdly enough, American eagle. ($7)
~and i will curl my hair with the purple Remington straightener from Walmart. ($20)






Necklace and head band...and how my hair looks when i curl it with that straightener!! Maybe I can do a video on how i do that sometime. Its so much easier and looks much better than a curling iron or wand once you get the hang of it. :)

Im attempting to use up my last couple days of warm weather before i start with more sweaters and scarfs!! The heat is slowing leaving us but i cant wait for Winter! 
I hope you guys liked my short blog...I promise the ones on the weekend will be much better. I will have much more time to take pictures and many more ideas. Have an amazing rest of the night and a good Friday.
Ill talk to you guys tomorrow night. :) Sleep tight...or wake up well...I dont know. Ill just go by North Carolina time. Bye ladies!                                         

9.18.2013

Hello, hello fellow bloggers. Happy Wednesday! I hope your day was stupendous. 
My topic for tonight is one of my favorites...SHOES!


Now I have a serious shoe problem and this is only about 1/8th of all my shoes...i strongly believe shoes make or break your outfit.

The shoes in the photo range from $8 to $55. But those are the Steve Madden boots in the back, the tan ones. I am actually quite lucky i found a great sale online because those shoes are usually VERY expensive as i think we all know. Those we $100 but girls, im serious. If you find something that is just a must have, look for it online first and check for sales because you can find the same pair of shoes for cheaper if you are patient enough to look. The rest are under $35 dollars and from places such as Target, Forever 21, Charlotte Russe, Shoe Carnival, Old Navy, Pac Sun, and other shoes stores around here. All cute and all very cheap. No one ever said you had to spend a lot!
So anyway, shoes really complete your outfit. I feel like if im wearing a plain shirt and plain pants, a bright, colorful shoe would just make my outfit 100 times better. Its always nice to have a couple pairs of bright shoes you can throw on to spice up your outfit.
As you can see I put a couple different kinds of shoes, heels, boots, sneakers, flipflops, moccasins, etc. You NEED a variety!! Please i beg of you, get some nice shoes, casual shoes, colorful, plain, everything. and also i highly recommend getting shoes you can wear out to a nice dinner or just with casual shorts and tshirt. Shoes are the best part, you can really have fun with shoes when you are getting ready.

I paired my Steve Madden booties up with a new dress for a family dinner and got so many compliments. :)



~Dress: Gigi's Boutique ($30)
~Boots: Website that i cant remember the name of but they are available in shoe stores that have Steve Madden brand shoes, for more expensive though (mine were $55. In store is $100)
~Bicycle necklace: Forever 21 ($6)

and to end off my post i have my wonderfully pre planned outfit for tomorrow. :) As you can probably tell, I like to be prepared.




~Lace headband: Clair's ($7)
~Red Revival lipstick-645: Target ($6)
~Cream tshirt: Forever21 ($14)
~IKat Harem pants: Forever21 ($23)
~Whistle necklace, also works: Forever21 ($6)
~Brown oxfords: Shoe carnival ($30)

Have a lovely night. I hope you sleep pleasantly. :)

THRIFTING IT!!!!!!

Ahhhh....thrift shops, 2nd hand stores, antique shops...They are golden let me tell you. I find the best things at places like that and they are cheap too!! From old clothes with that you can turn into a whole new look to strange stuff you never thought youd want to add to an outfit...these places are the best if you want to mix up your style and just be different. No other places have the same things, at least not anymore. I highly recommend goodwill, small antique shops around you and anywhere else that isnt ne w, that is "mainstream." Its a fun way to spend a day. (rhyme not intended) You can either make fun of the leather pants and the skin tight body suits or even the green suit jackets or you can pair things for the 20s up with stuff from the 60s and call it a day. :) but I can guarantee
 that if you look far enough into one of those stores you will find something you love!! Here's a couple things i managed to hunt down...


All of this is from an antique mall near my house. All of it came to a grand total of...drum roll please???
20 dollars!!! Three shirts, a skirt, and cute little overalls.
The best part is that no one else has this stuff and I have gotten quite a lot of use out of everything.

So dont forget about the little places out there, they are still doing pretty good. :) My overalls were great for going to the lake, i just wore them over my bathing suit and then when we went okay i just paired them with a simple shirt and i was set. The three shirts look nice with anything, jeans, skirts, whatever i wanted and I LOVE THAT skirt. I wear it with my Steve Madden boots and any white/cream colored shirt i have..just to give you guys and idea about how i make this stuff work. Though some these may have to go into storage soon, i had fun with them while summer and the heat lasted. So girls, go for it. GO THRIFTING!!!
I know i wont make fun of you for wearing "used" clothes and if anyone else does im sure is just because they are jealous! and i know, these days money is everything, if it isnt expensive its not as cool or important but i mean, i know, i get it. I love expensive stuff too and i will admit i often buy a 40 dollar sweater just because I love it that much. But take the opportunity to save some money and get adorable and useful clothes, why dont you?
HAVE A GREAT DAY...and happy thrifting. 



Outfit for tomorrow. Its starting to get chilly but thats not stopping me from keeping my fashion going! So dont let it stop you either or the high prices, you can get affordable yet adorable thing for the colder months!!
~Oversized white sweater: The Gap ($23)
~Burgundy knitted tights: Target ($16)
~Black combat boots: Target ($30)
~WORKING! Harmonica necklace: Earthbound ($9)

 I actually love winter and fall months, you can do so much with big sweaters, scarfs, boots, leggings, anything you can think of. Even though it might seem like stuffed into a jacket and thick pants if the only way to go. Think bigger. Let your mind go and Im sure you will find great things to pair together. Comfortable, affordable and warm!!
Go get some knit hats! Colorful scarfs and have fun! Spice up your wardrobe and dont be afraid to branch of! You can have both comfort and fashion. These stores are good apart but try combining different stores, different looks, and different styles to make a style thats all your own. Honestly, if its to expensive, do what i do. Go by my trusty rule of...how many different ways can i wear this? If you can only think of one good outfit, it isnt worth it but if your head fills with hundreds of combinations then go for it! Put that thing to good use and you wont feel like it was a stupid buy.

Now as for hair girls, i think winter is a good time to start doing your hair! No humidity of sweating to mess up your hard work! So go for those giant curls or anything else you love to do!! I for one am yanking out the crimper tomorrow to get the perfect look. I highly recommend this crimper, its great. Its simple and fast for an easy do for the day and as annoying as my hair is it stays just like that (picture below) all day!!


~PRO crimper: Walmart ($25)

Have fun experimenting with new fall and winter looks and get back to me! Send me and email of some of your fashion ideas and ill post them to my blog!! Just give me a name and a picture and whatever you want to say about your awesome fashion! Its always good to get other ideas out there.
maurasieber@gamil.com
Ill look forward to seeing your unique style. :)




First official fashion post! 

Well hello everyone, I am on what you call a mission. I am in love with the Lookbook Store, their clothes are adorable and cheap. I can become a blogger for them if I get 2,000 followers so its on! :) 

First of all ladies, I hear fedoras are out now? Well you know what, Im bring them back. Everyone has their own style and certain things look better on some people then they do on others but I am positive that everyone can have a great fashion sense. You just need to find what fits you and dont go with the flow. Be who you are. You arent fashionable if you copy what everyone else does. Be you. So i am going to be me and wear a fedora, i for one like to add a fedora to a summery outfit just to get something else in there and i dont care who hates fedoras. I like them and i like how they look on me. So first tip, if you think it looks good, it doesnt matter what other girls are wearing. you are you! So wear a fedora or shorts with tights, (which by the way, that i dont recommend...) wear what you want! 

Go on, be yourself. No one can beat that. 


I mean..blogging?



I was just thinking today...why not blog. I like clothes. I LOVE CLOTHES. Id love to share my style with other people. Ill try my best to not suck but this i my first time and i need to figure out how everything works. Happy blogging to me! :)

My outfit today...loving it. :)
