Sharing a little Villain inspo in this finally week leading up to Halloween!

If you lovelies follow my on Instagram then you already know I have created a photo challenge for us all to participate in for funsies. It's the #xoxoVillainStyle challenge, and it's not to late to play and post some of your own villain inspirations. Head to my post HERE for the details!

I thought it would be nice for those of you who are subscribed to my blog though to share the details and inspo about each fit! Some have been harder than others, but all in all it has been so fun doing.


Her look was one on the simpler side. I found this burgundy dress on Shein, and knew it would work for her. The high neck and sleeves made it! This dress also could have worked for Mother Gothel, but I was feeling the wicked Stepmother instead.

I already had the "glass slipper" at home. Those are actually a designer look a like I found off of amazon. They're quite nice on for a Louboutin look under $50! The cream booties are new from Nordies, and they have other colors. Lovelies, they are soooo comfortable! Like I may need another color in them, that's how much I love this lace up style. So victorian and y'all know I'm here for that inspo. Lastly, the necklace I made with supplies from Michael's. She wears a teal pendant necklace and this totally completed the look.

I pulled half my hair back to give the idea of her bouffantness updo and that was that.

You can shop the look below and I'll have my discount codes listed too. See the IG post HERE. Stay tuned for lots more this week.

Hi ya lovelies,

It's time to be BAD! What I mean is, let's play a fun little game to countdown to Halloween.

Tis the season for villainous behavior. The Villain Challenge is going to consist of well the villains and their sidekicks. It's starting Monday 19th, you know the only way to countdown to Halloween with a 13 days full of spooky fun.

So if you already follow me on IG, then you know I've been talking about the Disney villains mash up with Gossip Girl. Lovies, these looks are insane and I'm so here for all of them. Like I'm living and loving! Make sure if you don't already follow my on IG to do so @laceloveandlaura (click HERE) That's where you'll be seeing the looks first! Although, I have already shared some sneak peaks of the pieces I've been getting to put the characters all together on my youtube (click HERE).

I'm super excited for this because I've never hosted a photo challenge before, so I would absolutely LOVE for you all to take part. Don't feel like you need to post every single day - I completely get it, little notice or not enough time to get it all ready. Also it can be as simple or as elaborate as you want it to be! So like my posts are going to be like Disney bounds. This is where you take normal clothing, outfit items and piece them together to resemble the character. Obvi I'm throwing a Gossip Girl twist on them all though. If you want to go full out costume and cosplay by all means go for it! If you just have something that makes you feel like that villain take a pic with it and post about it. Example, I have a poison apple coffee mug... I could totally post "Enjoying my morning Brew" and that is obvi for the Evil Queen.

The days and what movies are being done are below. Make sure when you post to use the hashtag #xoxoVillainStyle this way I'll see all of your posts! I'll be sharing and commenting too :)

I can't wait to see what y'all come up with, let the Evil loose 😈



Taking care of our skin is one of the most important things we need to be on top of!

I'll be the first to admit I used to be terrible at taking care of my skin. I used to fall asleep at night with my make up on, and the next day just add more to it. This is bad in general, but usually having a cake face from performing the night prior is definitely a no-no. I am very grateful that I have been so lucky, not to have dealt with many breakouts. I don't really know how, seeing how bad I use to be, but thank you!

I am 100% on top of it now and have been for the past few years! We live in a world where no one wants to age, me included. But the thing is, is that there's so many products and surgical treatments people really don't have to. It's really quite crazy it think about. That's why a few years back I started taking care of my skin for prevention. If you start treating aging before it starts to show, you're going to be ahead of the game!

Now the products I'm reviewing today, aren't specifically for "anti-aging", but they most certainly will help in the process of prevention! I have talked to you lovelies about Tatcha products before, and recently I purchased some newbies that interested me. Now Tatcha is a great brand, most of their stuff is amazing, at least from things I've tried. With that being said they are a little on the pricier end of the scale.

In this skincare haul and review I'm going over their brand new face wash, the essence, and the silk peony eye cream. I highly recommend giving the review a watch if your interested in any of these 3 products, or you're looking to switch up things from what you're currently using. I will admit, I swore by another brand prior to trying this one's face wash, and I will never go back! That's how much I'm loving it.
