Music Monday | I'm Wanderin'

    This week's Music Monday is a cover called "I'm Wanderin'" by Kristina Train. It's a different take on the song, originally done by the legendary Aretha Franklin.

    I first heard this version, like many other people, in the Lexus ads on tv (the ones with the mannequins...), and NEEDED to know who sang it. It has such a classic vibe, and the tone in her voice is so so so beautiful. The original is full of soul, but this cover is a really beautiful take on it. Enjoy!

Here is the original, for those of you who haven't heard it!

DocYOUmentary Series - Post 1!

DocYOUmentary Series!
Hey everyone,
I’ve always been very obsessed with documentaries – I just love learning about things visually. Lately I’ve been watching a few really good ones so I figured I’d start a mini-series on it. So for the first post I’ll mention the last few that I’ve been watching, incase you want to get started on a documentary binge like me! And each post after this one will be basically a short review of a new one that I’ve watched. Hope you enjoy!

Quick and Easy Flatbread Pizza

helllllo my loves!

Eating the same thing every day for dinner can get quite boring, so we've been trying to find healthy alternatives that also taste good. Last week we made flatbread pizzas for dinner and they were so delicious we thought we would share! What I like about the flatbread we bought is that they are only 100 calories each, are high in fiber, low in carbs and have 9g of protein. So not only are they yummy, but they are healthy too! 

Flatout Flatbread Multigrain with flax
Jar of Pizza Sauce
Bag of Shredded Cheese (or grate your own cheese)
Various Vegetables
Feta Cheese (if desired)

    Helllllllo :) As we all know, I'm re-doing my room. It's been a slow process, but I'm finally getting the little touches that'll tie the room together.

     HENCE, this instalment of our Revamp Your Room Series: Throw Pillows. I love having tons of pillows on my bed. However, the cute throw pillows with monograms or quotes are all pretty much around the $25-$30 mark... SO I obviously decided to just make some myself! and here's how you can too :)

What You Need:

             - Cushion Cover: $4.99 IKEA 
             - Cushion: $4 IKEA
             - Fabric Paint 
             - Painter's Tape 
             - Brush
                 - exact-o-knife

Save Up the Bucks!

Hello lovelies!
      In the upcoming months & years Sonia and I want to take a lot of trips! I am going to New York City with friends for my best friends birthday in October, we of course want to visit our sister in LONDON (check out her vlogs here! miss you shiv!), go to disneyland, and then VEGA$ with the girls for Sonia's 21st birthday!

      Needless to say, that's going to cost a LOT of money. a lot. and with us being students, and also loving to go out with friends & online shop, keeping our money can be kind of a hard task sometimes LOL! THEREFORE, we have resorted a little old school trick that we think will help us, and maybe you guys as well.

I MOVED TO LONDON! + Just started vlogging!

Hey darlings,

Guess what? I MOVED TO LONDON! Very sudden, I know. I got this amazing opportunity through my modelling agency, as well as an agency here in London, to come here and model for a while! I'm so excited to be here and I'm so sorry I didn't post sooner. I've already been very busy so I haven't had a tonne of time to take good pictures but I'll add the ones that I've had so far, and I'll always be updating with new posts.

In other news, I STARTED VLOGGING! I thought, what better way to capture all of my memories and also be able to share them with everyone! This way I don't need to update everyone separately and you guys can actually experience it with me! I know that I'm so lucky to have this opportunity, and I want to be able to take everyone on this journey with me! I'll try to always do blog posts along with each video, or at least update vlogs where I can also post the videos here to make them easy to find.

    So you’re planning to throw a quick party together (in two days maybe?), and you need some décor on a budget. Again, Glasses N’ Lashes is here to give you some quick and inexpensive party décor ideas.


What you’ll need:
·      Plain scrap book paper – as many as the number of letters in your word
·      Glitter scrap book paper – as many as the number of letters in your word
·      Glue Gun
·      Twine
·      Clothes Pins
·      Loose Glitter
·      Mod Podge
·      Wedge Brush

You can get all of these items at your local craft store, like Michaels.

How to Plan A Party in 2 Days

     HELLO beautiful people! So it’s nearing the end of summer (BOOOOOOOOO) and everyone’s gearing up to get back to school, internships, or whatever else floats your boat. 

    “BUT WHAT IF WE STILL WANT TO HANG OUT TOGETHER ONE LAST TIME?!?!” Have no fear, Glasses N’ Lashes is here to help you with all your last minute summer bash needs ;)


FIRST THING TO DO: ORGANIZE! Make a word document of everything related to your party! Also, find a group of people to help you! I enlisted the help of my sister, the Guest of Honour’s brother, my best friend, my cousin & his fiancée. You could do it solo if you’d like, BUT gathering a group will make the decision making, décor making and food making a whole lot easier LOL

This document will include:
·      Guest List
·      Venue/ Venue Options
·      Date & Time
·      Food & Beverages
·      Decorations
·      Anything else pertaining to your specific situation

What's in my beach bag? + Beach Outfit!

Hey guys! We're going to the beach tmrw for the first time ALL summer so I'm SUPER excited! Thus, I thought I would post a "What's in my beach bag?" post as well as the outfit I'm wearing tmrw. If you know me, you know that I overpack for EVERYTHING, I like to be prepared! So this may seem pretty extensive, but I'm never in a sticky situation - so I don't mind having a heavy bag haha!

This is my bag from Victoria's Secret! It's super old but I love it because it has extra pockets on the side and it's really big! (Perfect for someone who over packs like me!)
