My Prediction of Kate Middleton's Wedding Dress! Will you be up to watch the Royal Wedding?

Here is my new carpet - a Union Jack in the living-room to commemorate such an awesome occasion! ;)

It's the night before and I am so excited about this wedding - as if it was my own child getting married, or perhaps me! I feel nervous for the princess to be, as I feel I can relate to her so much.

I decided to predict her dress! Even though Kate will be a modern princess, I think she is going to bring back some vintage Victorian, couture-style. It will be fresh and not stuffy looking. Maybe Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen may be the designer? Who knows - but hopefully she went British :)

First of all she will have the huge cathedral veil which is a given.

I believe her hair will be up, perhaps in a high proper - big bun.

Classic bun like Sarah Jessica Parker
The neck would go up like this - but with buttons down the back and long sleeves in lace or solid.
Kate will probably wear ivory - not white and, having to wear long sleeves, I see almost a bolero styled top going into dress with old Victorian-styled silk buttons down the back. The sleeves are either in a English lace or solid ivory material - but not to heavy for Spring. I do see a lot of lace, though! But, like I said, still nice for Spring! :)

Back with silk buttons idea.
Closest to my cupped
shoulder thought.
I also see it with a little cupping on the shoulders, but a form fit to the arms.

Also, high frill for the neck (but not too frilly or much at all), even though I see it high up in the neck like a turtleneck but open in the front from the neck going into a sweetheart cut (see photo below).

I think Kate could rock a dropped waist for her long torso - so I see a corset fitting to the dress but perfect enough in fit, because it's obviously made just for her. Then, like I said, the little buttons down the back.

The dress will go out like Princess but not too poofy like prom dress styles - or just bad wedding dress styles. A beautiful big-gown transition. Like a nice flow to big - if that makes any sense? The dress below has way too much stuff going on, but with cleaner, classier lines would be great - but it's the best way to explain my idea.

This dress is too busy/messy but it's the closest I could find to my open turtleneck/sweetheart top explaination.

The top also could come in more like this, to hide more skin, respectively.

There will also be a lovely and extremely long train (of course!).

For jewelery - I see deep blue tear-drop sapphires (if not - straight up diamond tear-drop earrings) and gold pieces to match nicely with her engagement ring. I don't think she will go over the top - but enough to show she is going to be crowned a princess.

I am so excited!

I wonder how close my prediction will be :)

Time will tell!

Will you be waking up early to watch the Royal Wedding?


Ever since having little Edie, and taking mucho amounts of pills ever since I got sick, my skin and hair have been suffering the side effects and have been super dry for the past few months.

I am a religious Bumble & Bumble user (since the tender age of 16 - no joke. I'll write about all my products soon) but I needed to get even deeper than the B&B "Deep Treatment" conditioner (which is still wicked - by the way). I felt I needed instant shine - without the nasty oil residue. I've looked everywhere for such a product and after much searching I came across this amazing Moroccanoil!

This brand is the Cadillac of argan oils - found growing only in Southwest Morocco. I decided to try it the first time on Sunday - and I must say this skeptical girl was mighty impressed! With one application my hair felt soft and it was insanely shiny! This product is jam-packed with antioxidants, UV protector, and is rich in vitamins to help strengthen the hair over time :)

If you do have fine or blonde hair - they have an alternative oil to use. I have fine hair - and I found the original was just great for me. You don't have to use a lot of product - as a little goes a long way :)

I am really happy with my Moroccanoil. I bought mine online.

You can check out all of their other amazing products here. I can't preach about this natural phenomenon enough :)

I feel so awful not posting any updates as I have been busy visiting with my Norwegian family! I will try to update as soon as I can!

It's so nice to see them again. I miss them so much! :)

JUDAS by Lady Gaga!

Lady Gaga's new single is using some recycled melodies from her past tracks (Bad Romance), but this single "Judas" gives me a little more faith on this upcoming album! WAY better than "Born this way" in my opinion. I am totally feeling it!  RedOne has the sickest sounds and production!!! Sexy sounds for sure!

Enjoy Lady Gaga's new single "Judas" below :)

Ellemusic: A Long Time - New song!

As most of you may know, I have been doing my music in Berklee School of Music and this was my last assignment in my Songwriting: Harmony course with the coolest teacher - Shane Adams! I have him again for this next Melody part of my Masters and I am super excited about it!

I just took this photo tonight because I can't introduce a new track without a new photo! It was last minute and totally random ;)

The song gives me a longing feeling. Like a homesickness from something. I will post the track and the lyrics underneath. I hope you all like it :)

A Long Time

Another day goes by
Close my eyes
Another night
Draw another X in my calender

The TV's blaring
A whole lot of nothings on right now
Start with a daydream
And then move on

And I've been waiting
Yes, I've been waiting
And I've been waiting a long time

And you've been playing a whole lot music in my ear
Not even listening anymore
Our talks are cheap now
You're treading in shallow waters, dear
You're another e(X) through my calendar

And I've been waiting
Yes, I've been waiting
And I've been waiting a long time

And I've been trying
And it's been trying
And we've been trying a long time

And I cry myself to sleep
I pray the lord my soul he'll keep
Keep me sane and in no pain
Cause I'll be waiting...

And I've been waiting
Yes, I've been waiting
And I've been waiting a long time

And I've been trying
And it's been trying
And we've been trying a long time
