Natasha Styling Skinny Jeans | Guest Post

Hello there, ladies! My name is Natasha and I blog over at What I Wear, What I Do And Why I Did It-otherwise known as "A Modest Fashion Blog."

I'm excited to post today on Ashley's blog, she was one of the first blogs I followed years ago.

A slightly controversial subject amongst modest fashion bloggers is the subject of pants. Some will not agree with me that pants CAN be modest (though not 100% of the time). And that's okay! Everyone's entitled to their opinion, even me.

Skincare, Bath, and Beauty Ulta Haul & Review | My Beauty Picks

Gosh. I've only done three posts so far in the month of November. What can I say? I've been living life one event at a time. Life has been going full-speed ahead around here, leaving no time for blogging [at least for taking pictures]. I do have a couple of videos on my YouTube channel, but even that is sadly behind. *sigh* Well, I'm going to start having some guest-bloggers through-out the coming the months, so that will be fun, since I don't always have time to post anymore.

1. Aromafloria Stress Less Ocean Mineral Bath Salts in Lavender [$2.99] -- These were located in the grab-n-go section by the cash wrap, and I decided to try them out since I've been really getting into relaxing baths lately. The downside of these bath salts is that it takes an entire bag for one bath, and the full-sized product is $22 at Ulta. But, the salts do create a soothing bath for sore muscles and create a tiny bit of foam too, which is always a plus in my book.  

2. EOS Coconut Milk Lip Balm [$3.49] -- If you have read my blog for several years, or have watch some of my makeup tutorials, you will be aware that I adore EOS lip balms [especially in Sweet Mint]. I was always getting asked if the coconut milk flavor was any good when I work my shifts at Ulta, so I took the plunge and tried it out. It is good, but I mostly recommend it for people who love the taste of coconut [sadly, I'm not that person]. It was a pass for me, personally.

My Top 12 Favorite Fiction Books | My Picks

Do you know how hard it is for a book lover to narrow down their top favorite books? Well, I've been thinking about sharing some of my favorite books with y'all for awhile now, and thought now was as good a time as any. This list is going to be my top twelve favorite fiction books, my next book list will be my top ten favorite books republished by Lamplighter Publications [since I had to narrow down my list somehow].

Q&A Time with Bramblewood Fashion!

When I was cleaning out my Macbook a few weeks ago, I stumbled across several documents filled with questions from y'all that we had never answered. Oops. To remedy this I have decided to start replying to some of them within some blog posts that were personally addressed to me. Perhaps when we have some more time, me and Gaby will film some Q&A videos with the questions that were addressed to the two of us. Sound good? Good.

How long have you been blogging? I started blogging in 2008, when I started a blog called, Vintage Home Life with my Mum and sisters on Wordpress. Of course, no one else ended up doing the blog with me and it was just me doing all the blogging. Then in August of 2009 I started, Bramblewood Fashion and in October of that same year, A Girls Guide to Homelife. I also have a couple other blogs: Musings of a Vintage Girl [Old Hollywood themed] and Bramblewood Dress Diary [sewing blog for historical/movie costumes].

Why did you start your blog? Since everyone means, Bramblewood Fashion when they ask this question. I started BF as way to share my latest sewing projects with everyone, to help advertise and grow an audience for my Etsy shop [which never took off, sadly].

What made you start a YouTube channel? Let's see here....I really loved seeing the videos that Amanda Flynn would share on her fashion blog, Amanda Beth Online, so eventually I got the courage to just start a channel myself. My first video was of me draping a bodice for my Young Victoria gown -- with no sound, just music. :p  I also saw videos as a way to connect with y'all on an other level, as you could hear my voice and see what I'm like in "real life". Of course, I didn't become comfortable in my videos until the past year or so. :p

Sunday Style | 1930s Inspired

Hello lovelies! How are y'all doing this Lord's day? I went to Church this morning with my family, came home for lunch afterwards, and so far this afternoon I've only been working on this outfit post. We live about 30-45 minutes away from Church, and by the time we make lunch most of the afternoon has past. Once I'm finished with this post I'm going to be putting away my Autumn/Winter clothes; make butterscotch & oatmeal cookies for a snack; play PS2 with my sister, Gaby; and do my bathroom chore for this week.

Friday Favorites

1. Forever [2014] Television Show -- I just started watching this show on Tuesday evening and I caught up within 24 hours. To say the least, I'm addicted to this show and I can't wait for more episodes to air. The show is a mix of Doctor Who, Sherlock, and something else [can't decided what] -- plus it stars Ioan Gruffudd.

2. Gracepoint [2014] Television Show -- The American remake of Broadchurch [another show which I enjoy watching], has been good so far. At times I get confused why they mention so many American things, than it hits me that it takes place in America, not UK. Duh. Also this show stars, David Tennant [who also appeared in Broadchurch].
