-Fashion- Friday

Spring: the beautiful, bird chirping, flower growing, rain falling season.  Now that it is spring, it is time to bring out your lovely spring clothes.  And this year it is all about flowery prints and colorful clothing.

A new, popular clothing type is boho-chic.  This fashion consists of various bohemian and hippie influences.  These clothing styles were very common in the 1960s and are now resurfacing in the 2000s.

How to get the boho chic look in 5 EASY STEPS-

  1. Clothes – Boho is all about the natural, earthy toned clothing with a splash of color; it’s about being unique and standing out from the crowd.  Many of the boho clothing items are baggy, such as flowy skirts and poofy pants (but don’t fret, they do not all have to be poofy or flowy to be boho).
  2. Shoes – That boho look is all about having strapy sandals that have earthy tones (I have a major shoe addiction and boho chic styled shoes are probably my favorite)
  3. Hair – Long pin straight hair is what is in style nowadays, but to make it boho chic give a little wave to your perfectly straight hair.  The idea is to make your hair appear as natural as possible; whether its naturally curly or even wavy.  Braided hairstyles are also considered boho and are really fun to create!
  4. Accessories – You must always accessorize!  There are, bracelets, ankle bracelets, necklaces, and earrings. And it doesn’t stop there!  There’s headbands (my favorite being the flower headbands), clips, and belts. The possibilities are endless with accessorizing!
  5. Make-up – Try to look as natural as possible, meaning no flashy red lips, eyeshadow, or blush.  Stay with the make-ups that match your skin tone.  Stick with eyeshadows that are earthy tones, such as gold and brown.  Let your natural beauty shine 🙂

A well-known store, free people,  is a store where you are able to find and buy many of these boho chic clothing styles.

The Happy Project – Spread The Happy

Happiness is an unspoken quality of life.  If you are happy it shows through your emotions, your features.  We do not often talk about the things that make us happy, we just see them happening.  But, I would like to talk about it.  What makes you happy?  Unhappy?  Are you ever perfectly content with your life or do you need something to keep that happiness going?

A group of friends and I are spreading happiness and we need your help!  We researched the quality of happiness throughout life.  And we are looking for that stage in life where you do not constantly need more and more to continue to be happy, we are looking for something that creates a long-lasting state of happiness.

We interviewed young children, asking them what made them happy. Most said being with family or the simple things in life, such as “scoring a goal in lacrosse.” Then we asked teens, which is shown in this video. They went more in depth, explaining in detail what makes them happy. And last we asked the elderly, who told us that what makes them happy is making others happy.

You are able to watch what we received from the teens on YouTube at: The Happy Project

A similar project was done in 2014 called The Global Happiness Project (this is a completed project).     


If you have something that makes you incandescently happy (really really happy), comment on this blog or on my YouTube Video (link above).  My group would love to hear about the thing that makes you happy!
