Made In The U.S.A.

"No matter how far we go, I want the whole world to know 
I want you bad and I won't have it any other way
No matter what the people say
I know we'll never break
Cause our love was made in the U.S.A"

Those are the lyrics to Demi Lovato's new song Made in the U.S.A which I used as inspiration for this post! As you may already know from this previous post, I am a huge fan of Demi's. I always am ecstatic when I hear she has a new song new songs or music video. Tomorrow is the 4th of July and also the release of her new music video for this song!!! This means fireworks and barbecues (although I don't go to any but I can smell them hehe.) I am quite excited! Here I am wearing a 4th of July inspired outfit-

4th Of July Outfit

4th Of July Outfit

I tried to incorporate all three colors into my outfit today. I got red on my shirt and lips, blue on my shirt and white shorts on! The shirt that I am wearing is actually perfect for tomorrow since it features the stars! I actually borrowed this shirt from my sister and to be honest, I like it a lot. It has a great fit and matches the theme for tomorrow as well as being comfortable! It's 95% cotton which makes it super soft! (hehe, cotton is so comfy in my opinion)

I think I actually got a bit too ambitious when editing these photos to try and make them 4th of July themed. My typical routine is to take my blog photos, pick out a few that I like from like 100 (trust me when I say 80% of my 100 photos are me looking like blahhh haha), run them through an editor where I hit "auto fix" and then ta da, my blog photos are created. With these photos I actually tried playing around with some of the borders and effects and ended up putting stars and sparkles around my pictures. I think it turned out pretty well!

Sorry for the bad picture
For my accessories and makeup in this post, I chose to wear my Alex And Ani Bracelet and an American flag I had hanging around in my home. For my makeup, I really wanted to have more red in my look so I looked for some of my red colored makeup. I got out my lipstick and eyeshadow, but after a trial of the eyeshadow, I realized my eyes looked kinda odd with red shadow on it. Maybe it was my eyeshape that caused this or maybe red isn't my color, but I did not like the way it turned out hehe. So therefore, I stuck with the red lip color instead!

    1. Being in Vegas for the 4th sounds like a lot of fun! I would love to go there hehe!
      The heat would be a problem for me in Vegas, but I probably would suffer through it once lol! You are so lucky!
