Inspired by the Line Play 2.0 Update!

SO! Line 2.0 finally updated for both IOS and iPhone!
Anyone that knows me, is quite aware I'm obsessed with Line and Line Play.
For those just learning about Line Play, Line Play is a little game for smartphones connected with Line chat.
In Line Play, you create your own unique avatar that can be either person [boy or girl] or animal. You get your own little cottage that you can earn points by cleaning your house and helping tidy other neighbours houses and by 'liking' other avatars. With the points, or in the game 'gems', you can buy clothing, hairstyles, furniture, even other gifts for your friends!
It sounds quite simple and menial, but it's highly addictive!
Every week there's new clothing and furniture released that have cute themes like pet shop, halloween, school chic even summer festival! On top of it, there's little 'gatcha' randomized games that have their own bi-weekly releases of cute little themes they're a bit tricky to win but the prices are lower than items in the shop but, like the real life 'gatcha' games, what you get is random.

You can also chat with other people in their PM service, or even on their own forums in the game~

Line Play also provides you with your own journal where you can post pictures or even create full blog entries on them, it's a fun way to get to know other people and peek into their lives.

Recently, Line Play had a giant update that really upgraded the visuals and even layout, it's been heavily anticipated and warmly welcomed! 
Everything is a lot crisper, and the movements of the avatar are a lot cuter!

I've worked quite hard on my little room to make it into my own little cafe.

I've also accumulated quite a wardrobe! It's quite inspired by my current wardrobe so I thought it'd be fun to roughly recreate some outfits!

Liz Lisa floral dress

Line Play also has a vast array of hairstyles, colours and options!
I've tried to purchase hair that I usually emulate to make my avatar look closer to myself.

 My favourite Line Play hair is the twin tails, which was from a special Weekend 'gatcha' release called, 'Girlfriend'

 Easy peasy steps to an everyday and yet still mature twin tail look,
What you'll need:
2 hair ties that look cole to your hair colour

 Split your hair into 2 sections and brush out any knots in your hair.
 Tie your hair right by your ear, and pull your hair gently apart near where the band rests and tussle the hair near your scalp for some body.
 Easy quick hairstyle that is cute, yet very pretty.
The lower your hair is tied [anywhere from ears to shoulders] the more mature you can make the hairstyle.
Also, throwing in some curls into your hair makes the look more playful.

I prefer to keep my hair straight when it's in twin tails because I'm mid 20's so the more playful look might be a bit much at least for me personally...

The second look is one that was recently released and I've been obsessed with.
My friend was kind enough to help me pull it off.

It's basically a simple side french braid. [there's a lot of in depth tutorials on how to french braid on youtube] I actually, don't know how to french braid buy my friend is currently trying to teach me;;

 We then extended the braid down and tied it together with a pink bow that matched my hair.

 I next to a small section of hair, and tied it with a small elastic then twisted it and pinned it into a rose shape.
I just kept twisting my hair and eventually it turned into a rosette and just used a few bobby pins to pin it flat.
[Almost like a pin curl]
 Finished look looks quite similar to the avatar's hair.

The second option that looks similar to it is just a simple side braid, which is a nice touch, even accessory to any outfit.
So, I hope you enjoyed this Line Play 2.0 inspired entry, I know I enjoyed creating it and playing dress up with my favourite little avatar!

Come visit me on Line Play, and give me a like!

It's fall! Trinity Styles [Sponsored] Review~ -and giveaway!

Trinity Styles is an online shop that sells numerous fashion items ranging from jewelry, accessories, brand clothing and clothing that fits almost every style.
This month, I had popular classic items sent to me that I was just so inspired by~

'Little Black Skirt' [available here]
'Fake Suspender Tights' [available here]
'Heart Links Necklace' [available here]

 My first outfit I put together is very relaxed and casual with a short sleeved sweatshirt and wedged loafers.
Since the tights and skirt are warm and comfortable the outfit is very free and works well for days you want to look stylish but still retain that laid back appearance.
I love how the outfit looks because of the monochromatic style which seems to be quite popular the last few months. ?To stay trendy this fall, I would pair it off with a contrasting bag that has a pop of colour like red or yellow.

My second fall look is very classic with some nude heels from Topshop and a big fluffy Liz Lisa knit.
The look encompasas cute, comfortable and sexy.
I plan on wearing this outfit out for drinks when it gets colder and to a few holiday parties because it looks so pretty.
Some tops that would also give off the same appeal;
[Bubble sweater][Ingni fuzzy sweater] [Titty & Co Lace Top] [Mink one piece] [Lace shoulder sweater]
To bring the outfit together, I think a black clutch would be gorgeous and maybe a delicate headband.
[Snidel clutch]
The 'Heart Links' necklace is really pretty and really goes well with any outfit paired with it. It's unique enough to be a good accent and since it's gold it goes well with anything and will be enough as that final touch that makes an outfit look whole.
It's well made and the clasp feels very secure, a good piece that will carry over well season to season.
Just like I loved the tattoo tights, I love the 'Fake Suspender' tights! It has that sass and sex appeal of wearing suspended thigh highs, but it's not so risque because it's a full piece that covers you up fully.
These tights amazed me because they are well constructed and heavy duty. I have very long nails and the thigh high portion is thick enough to endure my talons clawing at them, and no runs! Though the sheer part is very delicate so I had to be very careful handling that portion of the tights, but I'm not complaining.
They're also very warm so they'll be very useful in the cooler months since I don't wear pants.

My final outfit is very autumn-y and I played around with colour which I don't do quite often since majority of my closet is pastel. But, with black as my base it's quite fun to play with multiple shades and layering.

I think that black shoes would look very cute with the stockings as an alternative because the black would create a nice line and elongate the look of my legs.

The 'Little Black Skirt' is a perfect pleated a- line skirt that is universally flattering [I'm wearing the size medium and it fits me perfectly]. It has a pretty waist to it, that begs to have tops tucked into it to show off the construction of the skirt.
The skirt feels really high quality and luxurious and is thick and comfortable.

Who knew I would fall so in love with black this season?
Trinity Styles is a shop I trust and 100% put my name behind to have quality items, great shipping and amazing customer service.
