WTT: Rose Colored Glasses On

Hey everyone! Welcome back to What The Trend!  If you’re new to this, intro: I’m Amanda, and we’re gonna talk about things that are trendy and gab like besties.  If you’ve been following, welcome back!

So let’s just get right into things.  This year, it seems like reminiscing about the 90’s has been a trend in and of itself.  Being a born and raised in the 90’s child myself, I can’t help but feel by nostalgic heartstrings tinge seeing pops of this style all around.  BUT one style from another era seems to have taken on the street style of 2017. COLOR tinted sunglasses.  Not to immediately diss these statement making accessories, I suppose I’ve just always took a more logical approach to eye wear.  I can’t help but picture watching “Billboard Dad” with a young Mary Kate and Ashley( a 1998 classic where the trend is also V prevalent to those days) sporting these trendy items and thinking to my 7 year old self….don’t their eyes hurt? Is everything changed to pink when you wear those?

Nonetheless, celebs and style experts alike are bringing this trend back to life.  Let’s open the portal to the past; the 70’s to 2017:

Okay so for starters, some of your fave celebrity icons from today have been rocking these in various shades.  Hailey Baldwin has been seen shading herself from the sun (get it, SHADE(s)…pun.)  in this trend and color coordinating it properly. A positive about this trend and what makes it appealing for me at least, is the opportunity to add even more vibrancy to a look with a minimal effort. Minimal effort in the summer heat, AND still looking cute to boot? I’m in.

As we take this away from the starlight of the celebrity life, back down to the streets in the sunlight, style expert Chronicles of Her amplifies her french girl chic vibe with a rose-colored tone.  She also explains in her post here, that she found a yellow pair at Ebay for just $2!! Affordable fashion? YES please!

Bringing this trend into a relate-able everyday look, style blogger Isabella Leyva shows how to work the yellow glow pairing it with yet a second trend with her sheer floral top. I love how she makes her style look like any one of us can look as adorable as she does.  She brought this trend back down to basic, which is exactly what I like to live for at Eat Your Glitter. Basic, but not boring!

Okay so after seeing this trend working in different situations, I think it is totally doable! BUT, I also think it’s not worth splurging half your paycheck on.  Let’s look into some more affordable options.

MIRROR-OR-TINTED-AVIATOR-STYLE-SUNGLASSES-MEN-WOMEN-NEW-LENS-FRAME-100-UVGuys, don’t discount Ebay.  It has the power to your cheap trends.  These are only $6.99!! And if you feel inspired by that $2 find I mentioned previously, I’m sure with some further diving you can find yourself a great deal at this site.  Shop them!

Ugh maybe I’m a sucker for a fun novelty item, but come on. These are PRIME summer vibes, and I found them on Amazon so pun #2 for this post!!  Although these could be for the more ambitious style seeker, they would be the talk of any pool party you attend this summer.  Luau theme anyone? Find them on Amazon for only $2.46!!

Looking for a more sophisticated shape? These are from the motherland of surprising fashion finds, Target.  They are $16.99 which seems steep compared to those amazon finds, but they are slightly more refined in style if you’re looking for a more subtle try at the trend.

So, What The Trend do we think? I’m Sold.  Especially after finding this trend for super affordable prices, I am all in for rocking color tinted eye wear adding a super fun, and bold statement to your looks!  I would even venture to say I wouldn’t need to wear concealer to hide my under eye bags because they will be all ~*jazzed~* up through the magic of color.

I hope you enjoyed this edition of WTT! I’ll be keeping an extra EYE out for more! (I did it, 3 puns, 3 strikes, I’m outta here 😉 )

DIY Glitter Travel Mug!

Hey all! Okay I am super excited about the latest DIY!  It is super easy and you are going to love the results! Here we go: a DIY travel floating glittering mug! 

Who doesn’t need this in their life?  We’ve all been there in the morning, late, rushing, no time to sip your favorite caffeinated beverage.  So you have no choice but to take it along that drowsy commute.  You reach for a disposable paper cup with just as much dullness as the sleepy zombie persona of those who are non-morning people.  

Brighten up your morning (literally) with this DIY!

img_2757img_2756img_2751img_2752img_2754

Supplies:

  • Glitter of your choice
  • Clear tacky glue
  • water
  • Travel mug with a removable inner cup (not sure if there is an official name for these, but they are found at a local craft store such as Michael’s!)

Let’s get started.

  1. Remove cup inside.
  2. Fill base of cup with water about 3/4 of the way that will fit your cup, this will take some experimentation so I recommend filling the water without glitter or glue to make sure your happy with the measurement.
  3. Add a bunch of tacky glue! This will take up the rest of the 1/4 of space needed but don’t stress about exact measuring, it’s adjustable!
  4. Get Glittery! Add you favorite mixture of glitter into the cup and stir vigorously with the water and glue!
  5. Insert travel mug inner piece into cup of glitter mixture.  **this WILL be messy, find a sink or outdoor setting!** You will loose some of your water mixture so there is room for the inner mug, but its totally alright!  It gives the glitter just enough space to be able to float and dance around!
  6. Screw on the inside mug super tight!! You won’t be opening this again, unless you have a desire to change the inside mixture.  
  7. Fill with your favorite morning beverage and get out there and sparkle!!

 

I am in love with my mug currently, and hope this DIY is helpful for you all! Let me know what you think!

DIY Distressed Boyfriend Denim

Hey everyone!! Welcome back to Eat Your Glitter.  Things have been insane lately, but I am gaining some more free time and will be on a more frequent update to the blog schedule soon!  In the meantime, I NEED to share the latest DIY project!

So I found these old boys jeans hiding in the depths of what I call a closet, and I seized the opportunity for a crafty upgrade!  Similar to how I DIY-ed my black skinnies (see post here about it!)  I took the same method and hacked away at these til they came out JUST how a distressed boyfriend jean should!

They are durable for work, since I always am COVERED in acrylic paint, I don’t mind dirtying them up a bit, and they are the perfect weekend go-to casual look!

Let me know what you think!

Happy New Year to all!! Here is a recap of my New Years Eve night and what I decided to settle upon wearing.  This evening was a whirlwind to figure out between outfits, where to celebrate and who to ring in the new year with! I finally settled on this sequin crop top (forever 21, although not shown on the website I’m sorry!!) and decided to pair it with a simple charcoal jegging and leather jacket for some edge.  I also wanted to make this post fun and flashy…just how New Years Eve is! What better way to do so but to cover things with glitter?!?!  I’m so thankful for 2014 and all the people who have been with me through the ups and downs (including my favorite guy featured here 😉 )  I hope you all had a fantastic year and I look forward to the future and sharing it with everyone!

I hope there was plenty of love, smiles and of course GLITTER in your new years parties and celebrations!  Keep dreaming and striving for your goals this year in 2015!!
