Brown Skirt and White Cardigan

Hey everybody!
I made this outfit a while ago, and I didn't ever get around to posting it! I usually wear my cardigans over my skirts (see here and here), but this time around, I tucked my cardigan in and added a belt. I really liked this look, because I think it was the first time I had ever thought of tucking in my cardigan, so it was more unique to me. I hope that you like it too!

Have a great day!

Banana Peel Acne Treatment- Seriously AMAZING

I want to share with you something amazing- a way to significantly heal acne! May I present... The banana peel method! If you peel a banana and use small squares of the peel on your skin, it works wonders. I've used this technique a couple times, and let me just say this- one day my skin had (basically) a hole in it from where I picked off a bad scab, and after one treatment with the banana peel, my skin had already started healing together by that night. It was still red and scabbing mind you, but my skin had already started to heal up the layers of skin. In fact, one of the layers had already healed and dried up by that night. Honestly, banana peels are skin miracle workers.
If you have some acne that you would like to disappear over the course of a few days, then just follow these instructions--
Peel a banana and cut up the peel into squares-- I usually end up with three long strips of banana peel, then I can cut those up into about four pieces each.
Take the squares and rub them onto your (clean, lotion free) skin where you want the acne to go away. Keep rubbing until the peel is turning brown, or you see the brown residue starting to show up on your skin.
Once you have completed the rubbing, then let the banana residue stay on your skin for 15-20 minutes. (The longer the better!) Then you can rinse your face off.
This is one treatment. I usually do two treatments a day- once in the morning, and once at night. If you want, you can do it again in the middle of the day, but from my experience, twice a day is enough. Now everyone, get ready for amazing skin!

Ripped Jeans and Powder Pink

HEY Y'ALL! It's Emma here!:) Two weeks ago, on Sunday, I wore this ensemble and Kendra said it was blogging worthy!;)
I'm wearing a sheer, light pink blouse with some pretty designs on the chest that, unfortunately, don't show because of my hair (:/), ripped patchwork skinny jeans, and my studded, pewter sneakers!:)
Thanks for reading!

Camo Shirt and Red Jeans

Today I want to share an outfit that I wore yesterday. While I was away in Texas last week, my mom, sister, and I went on a shopping trip. We found this wonderful store at the mall called Maurice's and ended up buying some super cute new clothes. This is the first thing that I chose to wear from my new finds- a camouflage button down!
When I first paired this top with my red jeans, I wasn't completely convinced that it would look good together. But when I slipped a black t-shirt underneath the camo and add a metallic belt, I was really happy with the results.

I also tried this cool rolled hairstyle yesterday. When I took my hair down, my hair was curly, but it didn't last very long. It probably would have lasted longer if I had hairsprayed it though.

Thanks for reading!

Bold Patterns and Weekend Challenge

Hello everyone!
I apologize for the lack of recent posts. This past week, I was out of town in Texas! It was a great trip, and I might be sharing some photos that I took there soon. But for now, I have this outfit that I made for church on Sunday.
I had found this skirt on the clearance rack at Dress Barn about a month ago, and my mom was so kind as to buy it for me online a little while later. I had seen a lady trying it on in the dressing room and she had no idea what to wear with it. I'm an introverted person, so I didn't pipe in with my opinion at the time, but I wish I had. She was trying to find a top to go with this vibrant skirt, and pretty much any of the shirts she was trying on would have gone with the skirt. I don't think that the lady bought the skirt, but my advice would have been to tuck whatever shirt she chose into the skirt and add a belt! It instantly flatters your figure, because it adds a defined waistline and draws attention to the smallest part of you.
I love this skirt because it's beautiful and actually very versatile as well. I have a ton of ideas for wearing it- cardigans, denim jackets, belts, jewelry, sandals, heels... It's all about mixing it up! But here is my first outfit wearing this eye-catching skirt.

Some people might look at this skirt all by itself and be intimidated to wear it due to the "loudness" of it. Lots of color and sparkle can make some people want to run and hide in their trusty basics, but I'm here to dare you to try something bold! This blog is called Uniquely You because I believe that everyone is unique, and that you should have fun expressing it. If you want to wear something bold but are afraid of it looking silly on you, then just follow these basic steps-
Choose a piece of clothing with the bold pattern of your choice.
Find the colors in the pattern and choose one other solid piece of clothing to wear with the pattern (if your pattern has only two colors and one of them is a neutral, you should go with the neutral color).
Add basic/neutral pieces to help tone down the pattern (if what I mentioned before about having only two colors applies to you, then you can choose another neutral that coordinates- like denim.)
Complete with accessories.
I hope that this has inspired you to try something more bold and daring! Speaking of which.... That is your weekend challenge- to wear a bold pattern. Take a picture of yourself in your bold pattern outfit and send it to my email ( and I'll use your photo as a feature in Monday's post!
I hope I'll be hearing from you!
