Bookies Got Style: Magnus Bane + Pinky Paradise Coupon Code

Hi guys!!! It is time for another Bookies Got Style! 

This time it is the famous fashionable Magnus Bane.
Magnus is described as:
…wearing all kinds of make-up, such as glitter around his eyes and lipstick. He likes to flaunt his bisexuality by wearing rainbow leather pants, sparkly belt buckles, and vibrant nail polish. Magnus has yellow/green “cat eyes,” which have vertical pupils and he does not have a belly button.
I REALLLLLYYYY didn’t want to go styling something like this (no offence to people who dress like this, really):

I found him SUPER difficult to do because my style is NOT like him at all! I tried my best to find glittery stuff but I just don’t own anything!  Before I even start I have to say that I EFFIN’ FAILED!!!

So this is the perfect post for you to try!!


First Look!
I own like two leather jackets and this is one of them. I know Magnus looooves his leather so I paired it with the most glittery top I can find in my house. I hope this gave it a badass look but I mean it is REALLY not that Magnus. The pants are cool though. If you scrolled down a bit, you can see they have a cool Magnus pattern on it, and it is more leathery than normal jeans.
Those white stuff on the top is not fluff, it is flakes of bedazzle shit. XD They are flakes of glitter. Omg I can’t even. 
Damn look at my chubby cheeks! Scroll down to see more on the shoes.
These are the pants! They have a cool ssssss-snake scale pattern on it.
These flats kind of tie in with the pants, scales!!! And I mean the gold buckles just made it look more polished.

Second Look! 
*sigh* Once again, I wished I could’ve went more crazy with the look. I paired a simple white tank top with a  lace covering and leopard pencil skirt.
I was thinking “ah Magnus is like sexy so lace would work right? And pencil skirts are sexy right??” *SIGH* I tried.

I thought maybe if I made my hair a little more messy it will look more like a Magnus style……………………..*shots self*
These are the shoes worn. I thought the bow added a cute, flirty look to the whole look. Magnus is fun and flirty right?

Third Look!
No this is not the look but I wish I had something liked this.
Or crazy like this
But instead you got this……………..ahahahahha.
You ask “what the eff is on your effin’ head Ash???” I was going for something like this:

Lace and glitter again?? EFF

Close up of the sh** that was on my head….they were actually necklaces >///////////< The secret is out!

I do have cool rings!! Eh eh??? A warlock would totally wear all these on one hand. 😀

And I do have colourful pants!!!
Seeeeeeee, one is even glittered!!

And colourful skirts!!

And cool studded, bowed, leather pumps.

And awesome glitter heels.

Next time maybe I should just not modelled the clothes and just take pictures of it. That’s better right??? *sigh*

Oh! PS! I have a coupon code for you all for the lenses! Head over to my other post for it! 😀! Here’s a little more about the code:
1. Customers entitle a FREE cute animal lens case PLUS mystery gift
   2. The coupon code can be stacked, If you purchase 3 pairs, you will get 3 lens case plus 3 mystery gifts.
   3. A minimum of 1 pair of circle lens purchased to activate the code.
   4. The code has no expired dates 🙂

So I know I failed this time but I tried. This only told me that I need to go shopping for crazier clothes. I can hear my credit card crying. Now I must go and comfort it. See you guys next time!! AND TRY TO OUT DO ME! PLEASEEE! I BEG OF YOU!!! PUT ME OUT OF MY SHAME!!!

Oh yeah, this was what I wore with the Katniss post…….random inclusion.

Bookies Got Style (1): Katniss Everdeen + Puffy 3 Tone Grey Review

WELCOME TO THE FIRST EDITION OF BOOKIES GOT STYLE!!!

If you didn’t know already from the title, I’ll be doing Katniss Everdeen inspired looks. Haha, I am not a pro at this so please excuse my photos and looks. I just want to have fun. It is actually extremely embarrassing for me to do this. xD

So let’s dive in shall we?

Remember how at the Reaping Katniss was wearing blue? Well this was my take at it. It came off a bit shiny then I hoped but I paired a light blue pokadotted top and a plain grey pair of jeans and some blue flats. The pokadots kind of made me think of cute olden days like “the-good-old-days-before-Katniss-was-dragged-into-the-Game”. Wow…I hope you get that. And nothing is more plain than grey pants. Notice the dark eye circles, the pale lips, the stiff awkward pose? District 12 man! I also French braided my bangs on one side and tied everything into a loose side bun. It kind of gives it a peasant look.
The girl on fire needs to still look professional for the Capitol right? Nothing is more sleek then a blazer and of course we can’t forget the red/orange hot colour that defines our Katniss. I even added a little extra something with the tank top underneath, a little shiny rimstones to add to the “wow” factor of the Capitol. You want to not scare everyone off on the streets but still look Capitol ready. And now to the shoes, these killers are super comfortable even with the height (and they were only $5 yes gasp Capitol, us commoners can get good looking shoes at a fraction of the price! Beat it!) Also with the hair, it is a side French braid with a high bun. This keeps the hair from the face, giving it a polished look.
This one is just a casual look that I thought would fit a Katniss type of girl. The colours were dark but still had their fun. To me it kind of feel earthy, not to feminine but still girly. I mean I don’t know if Katniss will wear this but still 😛 Plus it is super comfortable. As for the hair for this look, it is side French braid with another braid. 😛 You can’t really see it but everything was tied off with another braid.

I had sooooo many outfits planned out and boy you should have been on my bed….allll covered in clothings (if my dad had seen it he would’ve complained how I could open a store with it). Sadly, the camera ran out of batteries so maybe next time I’ll do a new edition with Katniss and feature more clothings!

And as you can see above, I didn’t go for an exact replica of Katniss’ clothings in the book, but if that’s what you want, why not try it yourself? 😀
Here’s what Hunger Games Wikia said about Katniss’ clothings in the trilogy:

– hunting boots
– worn-out clothes
– blue dress
– Black unitard with fire
– Precious flame jewels dress
– Hooded black jacket (to the thighs), tawny trousers, sturdy brown belt, green button-up shirt
– Black pants, white shirt, green/blue/gray wool sweater, laced leather boots
– White coat, leather gloves, bright red scarf, earmuffs
– Orange frock patterned with autumn leaves
– Pale pink strapless gown
– Dark blue velvet number
– Sleeves that touch the floor and lots and lots of pearls.
– a fitted blue jumpsuit only 1/2 inch thick made of sheer material, zipper in front, six inch wide padded belt covered in purple plastic and nylon shoes with rubber soles
– Grey shirt and pants
– Black body armor, helmet to hood, with chest plate, 3/4 sleeves, white folds under her arms, boots and belt

Or you can be like me and just grab some clothes around the house and make your own Katniss flared looks. NOW I CHALLENGE YOU TO BETTER ME! >;P which won’t be that hard to do.

And it was hard to tell from those pictures that I had contacts on, but these were it: Puffy 3 tone grey. Want to see what I thought of them? Check out my review HERE <—it will include tons of derpy pictures of me, you know you don't want to miss it ;).

Just flash in a dark room.
Just normal room light (yellow).
Just window light.

OOPPS!! SHOUT-OUT-TO-MY-BIG-SISTER-STELLA-FOR-BEING-THE-AWESOME-PHOTOGRAPHER-OMG-I’M-SO-SORRY-I-FORGOT-TO-MENTION-YOU.

ALSO! You can now see the extras/bloopers post here! 😀

New Project: Bookies Got Style! Join me!

Bookies Got Style!

Hi hi! I know I have been very busy lately but….(!!!) I have an idea and I need YOUR help!
(And you don’t have to be “fashionista” to write the post! This project is just a showcase of your style and your interest in fashion/beauty. So don’t panic!)

Some of you might know I started Fashion Friday (but I haven’t been updating it for a while…eeks!) And now I have something else!

I know many of you here are not only into books and reading and more books (even if you are, that’s great!). But I know a lot of you guys love fashion and beauty!

What I am looking for:

  • Authors or Bloggers or ANYONE!!!
  • Guest Posts (on fashion/beauty – book related or not, doesn’t matter!)

I am basically hoping for you guys to guest post on anything fashion/beauty related. It can be a post about:
– Your style
– How you shop
– Where you shop
– Whose style you like the best
– Your Favourite Youtube Beauty Guru

– Mermaid style versus Fairies?
– Achieving flawless vampire skin? Etc

And for authors you can write about your characters as well! What will he or she wear on a casual date, or an evening gala, fighting badass monsters? Sky is the limit here! And of course, authors, you don’t have to write about your characters if you don’t want to (it was just a suggestion, really!). Write about cosplay! I don’t know! A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G! (Heehee see how I sneaked in cosplay? omg I’m so bad).

Can you write about other geeky stuff?……………….Hell to the yes!
– Love Sherlock? Firefly? Merlin?

– Love cartoons? Anime? Manga?

And you said you like art? AWESOME!
Why not show off your art?! Got any fanart of amazing book characters? How about just random masterpieces ready to be discover! I would love to see!

Love something, and want to relate it to fashion/beauty? WRITE ABOUT IT!

And if you don’t mind, can you share this little project of mine? :3 I mean I will be a little disappointed if no one joins me but….I guess that’s okay? *cries*

I will hopefully post my first one next mouth as I need some items to come in first… ^^
