Celebrities who turned into unicorns at Halloween

First, celebrities dressed as mermaids. Now, it’s all about the unicorns. Unicorn food, unicorn makeup, unicorn clothes, you know unicorns have infiltrated pop culture when celebrities dress up as them too.

Here’s some celebrities who have recently run around Hollywood in horns and tails:

Jenna Dewan-Tatum

Casamigos Tequila Halloween Party

Jenna Dewan Tatum is obviously living her best life right now. Not only did she marry the probably-a-real-life-prince Channing Tatum, she’s got a successful career doing what she loves, she and her daughter have matching mermaid tails AND she dressed up as a unicorn last year.

Her white halter dress and white stockings is a tiny bit of a shoutout to her dancing background, and I’m loving that slightly purple toned ponytail. And don’t forget the glittery horn!

 

Taylor Swift

Is it a unicorn with wings or a pegasus with a horn? Taylor Swift seems to think it’s the latter, as she calls this creation a “pegacorn” in 2014.

Either way, I love how she proves that you can have a fun and over-the-top Halloween without having to be flirty or sexy.

The outfit looks super comfy but I wonder how she keeps that horn and hat on without it falling off? Is it clipped on perhaps?

 

Lucy Hale

Forgoing the traditional white unicorn, the Pretty Little Liars actress decided to opt for a rainbow-coloured unicorn look. Lucy Hale matched a pink crop top with a pink flouncy skirt and a pink wig.

Those multi-coloured rainbow fur boots are craaaazy. And that unicorn headband! I wish I had one of those.

 

Brandi Cyrus

The younger sister of singer Miley Cyrus wears what looks like a long sleeved tutu and a horn and tail. I like how she made a tail out of what looks like multicoloured shiny ribbon. A simple Halloween look but the horn is so outstanding.

First Brandi dresses as a mermaid, and now a unicorn? She must be living my life. Sigh.

 

Courtney Stodden

Courtney Stodden goes for the sexy fun furry unicorn for Halloween in 2012.

She’s got furry boots but if you carefully see her left boot in this photo, you can make out the outline of a heel.  Courtney is nothing if not committed to her high heels!

And I know a lot of people gave her flak for dressing ‘slutty’ but to me I don’t care. Do and wear whatever makes you happy!

(Unless your tits are out, I draw the line at tits. But still, the point of unicorns is to have acceptance of each other.)

Also pictured is her husband Doug Hutchison. Is he supposed to be the Burger King mascot? I feel like he is, with that crown and cape.

Aubrey O’Day

Aubrey_O'Day_unicorn_halloween

Taking a leaf out of Taylor Swift’s book, the Danity Kane girl group singer-turned-reality star showed up at Maxim’s Halloween Party last year as a unicorn with wings.

Aubrey O’Day showed up together with boyfriend and Famously Single co-star Pauly D who is dressed as… a dragon perhaps?

I don’t get that bit of coloured fake hair trailing down her left leg. What is it supposed to be? An extra tail? Whatever it is, I don’t like it.

But I am in love with her pastel blue, purple and pink hair. It’s soo gorgeous!

And can we all just take a moment to appreciate DAT MAKEUP?

Aubrey_O'Day_unicorn_halloween2

Amazing. I love it. And I love the golden horn too. Aubrey, can I borrow your costume just once?

 

Which unicorn was your favourite lovelies? I think mine was Jenna Dewan-Tatum’s gorgeous white creation!

Much Love,

News: Your glitter liquid phone cases could burn you!

glitter_phone_case_3.jpg

Unicorns beware!

In this day and age, we can’t live without our smartphones. And we love buying phone cases that look great and put a smile on our faces.

But beware when looking at those sparkly phone cases with liquid and glitter!

They look so mesmerizing, BUT THEY LEAK AND CAUSE CHEMICAL BURNS!

glitter_phone_case_5.jpg

Users have reported burns on their face and body after the cases broke and the liquid leaked onto their skin.

And with plastic cases, who knows when they might break or even crack a tiny bit?

Companies like Victoria’s Secret, Forever 21, Tory Burch, Nordstrom and Amazon were selling such cases for $10 – $65, and they have recalled the phone cases after these news reports came out.

So far around 24 people worldwide have reported skin irritations or chemical burns from their cases.

If you have bought one, you can contact the store for a refund. Stores like Forever 21 will definitely give you a refund, but online stores, I’m not sure? You should definitely try it.

Swim away from these cases! They look pretty but they are so not worth it.

Stay safe mermaids and mermen!

10 items to travel like a Unicorn

Fari-001.jpg

Travelling is always such an amazing unique experience. Leaving your home, going somewhere far away where you can take in the sights and sounds and flavours of someplace completely new. I always feel ready to go travel.

Unfortunately travelling can also suck. It can be so boring, and rushed, and tiring. And we can’t all arrive at our destinations with fab hair, heels and sexy sunglasses.

In fact, most of the time I get off the plane with flat hair, really dry skin and a thousand bags to carry on my own.

So come my dear unicorns, here are 10 items that will make you soar through skies like the unicorn you are and reach your destination in style.

1. A long sleeve shirt with a cool graphic to keep you warm and toasty on the plane.

Travel tips every unicorn needs to know

pink_building

Traveling can be a super amazing time. Or it can be really really stressful.

 

The planning, the booking, the checklists, the Googling, the data roaming, all of that can be such a struggle. Oftentimes I feel way too tired to look around and appreciate the new scenery and surroundings.

And sometimes, I come home from a vacation thinking that I need a vacation from the vacation!

These travel tips are based on my personal experience, and I’ve come to realize that stuff is so unimportant, and sharing experiences are so much more important.

 

Keep yourself hydrated.

girl_drink_water

Don’t get dehydrated, my lovely unicorns!

The air inside the plane cabin is incredibly dry, and makes our skin dry, flaky and itchy. Not only that, the lack of sleep, the tiredness and the stress from planning the itinerary definitely takes a toll on our bodies.

Bring a water bottle everywhere you go, and take regular sips of water (drinking juice or tea is also okay, but not as good as water!).

Other than drinking water, you can also bring along eye drops, hand lotion or face mists to help hydrate your skin. My favourite is the Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist, because I looove the smell of roses!

jurlique_face_mist_spray

And I love pink so the Rosewater is perfect for me (Even though it sprays transparent instead of pink. You know what? Someone should invent a glitter face mist to hydrate our skin!)

I don’t really like the smell of the Calming Mist or Lavender Hydrating Mist, but  you know how scents are so subjective. Someone can love a certain smell and another person can hate the exact same smell.

Anyway I always bring along a tiny face mist in my bag, to spray on my face when it gets hot. The face mist really really comes in handy particularly when my skin is dry or I’m feeling sweaty. Nobody likes to be a dehydrated unicorn.

 

Charge your appliances.

phone_notebook_watch.jpeg

Don’t forget to charge your phones, cameras, tablets and laptops the night before. It is the worst feeling when our phone battery goes flat… right before we board a plane.

And our phone charger is in our check-in luggage.

So horrible!

Charging time is also a good time to make sure there’s enough memory space in the phone or camera, just in case.

 

Keep healthy snacks.

The problem I always have is I either don’t have any snacks in my bag, or only chocolate. So I either get a sugar high or feel really tired when traveling around. Make sure you try to eat healthy even when you’re on a holiday.

My favourite thing right now is either to have dried fruit on me, or some apples or bananas*. Yum!

*bananas are the worst fruit to carry around though because they bruise so easily*

 

Pack your bag early, and take out half the items

red_heels_bag

This is my trick whenever I travel somewhere. That’s because I always overpack. Always. I always think that I need a lot of stuff in the hotel rooms, and I should totally bring another shirt, and maybe I should bring leggings too just in case…

And I used to stuff lots of things I don’t even use on a regular basis at home! Soft toys, face masks, extra jackets, I always think I need more things than I actually do.

So now, this is my formula:

  • I write down the items I need to pack.
  • For outfits, I pull out one outfit per day plus one extra (For a 3 day stay, I pull out 4 outfits). I set them down and see if I like the outfits, and then I pack them if they pass.
  • I put everything in my bag, then leave them.
  • 1/2 hour later, I come back and look at the items and try to take out half the things I’ve packed. Most of the time, I can!

Taa daaa. This is how you pack like a unicorn.

 

Say yes more.

fari-004

Even if it’s a scary roller coaster ride. Even if it’s a weird food. Even if it’s a place you normally wouldn’t go. Saying yes to new experiences makes Life so much more enriching and exciting.

I’ve said yes to camping even though I’d never done it before. I’ve said yes to zip lining (although I won’t ever do it again!). I’ve said yes to a strange Chinese head massage and I enjoyed it.

So say yes to new things and you’ll be surprised with what you might like or find out about yourself.

But don’t forget, safety first! Don’t say yes without doing some research first, and try to have someone come along with you!

 

Don’t forget to write down your memories.

pink_planner_pink_phone.jpg

Whether it’s a pen and paper, a blog, or photos on social media, journalling is a way to document everything to read back and smile.

I usually write at the end of the day, while things are still fresh. But it depends on unicorn to unicorn, it might be easier for you to write early in the morning during breakfast.

Either way, these words, photos and souvenirs will be a way to remember the wonderful sights, sounds and smells all over the world.

My dream destination is Santorini, Greece. Sooo beautiful. White walls, blue sky, blue waters, an amazing view everywhere you look. I’ve never been there before but I hope to one day. 

Share with me what your dream destination is, my beautiful unicorns?

With love,
