ASQgenerates Style | Kendra's Fashion Challenge -Night Out at Downtown Disney

Hi sweet peas, how are you all doing so far ? 

My week has been quite busy but going well.

Today I have a another fashion post for you all but this time it a challenge :) who doesn't love challenges I surely do.

Few days ago I was contacted by the very lovely Kendra Thorton, who is a travel expert who has been featured on television shows like Tyra Banks and Nate Berkus. She share her tips on planning, packing, and numerous other aspects of travel, and now is starting a new project on fashion related travel.

Kendra kindly asked me to join her 'Kendra's Fashion Challenge'and I was totally floored and couldn't deny.

Here what Kendra asked from me :  

 Kendra's Fashion Challenge with asqgenerates

Fashion Challenge with Downtown Disney Flair

Kendra's Fashion Challenge is about to hit Downtown Disney when I visit with my family. Finding the perfect fashions for my night out with my three kids is quite the challenge!  I could really use some help putting together the best outfits for Orlando. I am 40 years old and ready to hear the best fashion advice from some of my favorite premier fashion bloggers. Help me find an outfit that will compliment my family’s night out. I want to enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime experience looking my best glowing with style! One of the things I look forward to on my trip is the House of Blues. The Downtown Disney location is always very lively, even during the day and on weeknights. Live music is always playing, you can even hear it from outside. The menu features some of the best BBQ in the area, and I am sure the kids will love it. Even if I don't get to see a famous band perform, I am always up for some dancing after a tasty meal. I really look forward to the all-American style at the House of Blues.
Having the right outfit could make or break my trip to Orlando. The city is full of sophisticated people enjoying a world-class resort. While I look forward to seeing some of the more relaxed areas of the large city as well, I am looking forward to Downtown Disney the most. Orlando is full of exciting opportunities to bond with family over various activities, delicious dinners, and unique shopping. No matter what you look forward to the most during your trip, looking good in Downtown Disney is a must! Having the right outfit will make the night one to remember for a lifetime.

After reading a few thing and visiting Downtown Disney and House of Blue well I mean virtually visiting I knew I wanted the lovely Kendra to sparkle in the Night time at Downtown Disney and well get all the attention to herself. 

Now wouldn't that be nice?! 

Let get started then :) 

Look 1:
Fabulous Chic:
'Kendra's Fashion Challenge' Fabulous Chic

This first outfit is a tribute to the lovely spring summer weather. The lace dress is so so so pretty. I combined the dress with a sheer shrug for the warmth if it gets chilly in the nigh-time at Downtown Disney.

The ankle strap heels adds feminine detail to the outfit,elongates the feet- adding few inches. But the straps on them makes them comfortable so if you want to swirls,dance and have some fun in the House of Blue so may do so.

To add color t the outfit I added a hot hot red clutch with the red lip.Kept the jewelry simple and in the gold tones matching the hardware of the clutch.For hair I loved the messy tousled bun to give a carefree vib.

And for the nail I liked the 3 combination of the pink, white and bronze tone nail laquer so what ever choose Kendra heart desire she may pick any color, all would look fabulous.

Making her look Fabulously Chic 

Look 2: 
Sparkle Style:

G.L.A.M and S.P.A.R.K.LE is what we are going for here. When you wear this beautiful Peplum Sequence black dress all eyes are bound to be on you .

The sparkling clutch amp up the outfit. The metallic 'Christian Louboutin 'Djalouzi' no doubt have it's own place and elevate this outfit to a completely different level. 

Bring on Fire.

For jewelry I chose very simple yet elegant pieces from Mall of Style. 

Makeup wise I opted for pink tone eye with a combination of the dark maroon red lip and the pink base nails with the sparkling tips.

Top Ballerina buns are a way to go for this outfit showcasing the back of the sparkling dress and embracing the bold/feminine/edgy look even further.

There is no holding back in this outfit.You surely can't be more breathtaking than this when you wear this outfit.
 You will feel like a queen and other will know you are the Queen ;)

The last but not the least;

Look 3: 
Easy , breezy beautiful:
Kendra's Fashion Challenge: Easy Breezy Beautiful

 This pearly theme wardrobe shout elegance from miles away.The beautiful lace detail top make the outfit as delicate as a flower and the canvas mini skirt add some warmth to the look, don't want Kendra feeling chilly in the night time.

The blush tone clutch with a bow feminize the outfit .For a more elegant look I chose the jewelry to be a combination of pearl and stones.

For shoes I chose these asymmetrical pink/maroon tone ankle booties to add color to the blush tone palette making the outfit up-to-date rather than giving an old-fashion vibe.

To have the non-effort look I went with the curly/wavy tousled hair with nude lip but wait and behold I added sparkling eye-shadow detail work in this look to make it look a bit on the glam side but not too much.
 I just can't seem to just leave the sparkle can I ?!?! Nope, I can't ! It's nigh time and I want Kendra to shine :) 

And this complete my 3 look that I came up with for the very lovely Kendra Thornton.

I hope you all and Kendra herself enjoy these look as much as I loved creating them.

Would you leave something out and add anything in ?

Let me know in the comment below, i'll be reading them :)

Thank you once again Kendra for asking me to join you lovely Fashion Challenge I hope you liked my styling.

Lifestyle | Inspiration Sunday : I will not be STOPPED.

Inspiration Sunday -Quote of the day

When your soul say stop. 

You tell yourself to start, and push extra hard.

Who know what life has in store for you? 

You never know when good things come in your way in that very moment.

Few days ago I announced on twitter that I might take a break from blogging due to the problem my family
was facing. In all honesty I was not able to concentrate on my blog and I didn't feel like talking about well I didn't feel like talking about anything.

This is what happens when you get the bad news you don't want to hear ;When tragedy hit you home, hit you in your face and you want to stop, you don't feel like doing anything.

May that be waking up in the morning, eating, doing routine work.

This is not the first time I have dealt with *life problem*  with that being said I have never let those
problems get in my head or my way.I have never dwell on the bad thing that happened but looked on a positive note see what I have learnt from those experiences and move on to my next step to see what the future has in store for me.I rather see the positive thing rather than cry over the bad.

Hopelessness is not my cup of tea. 
Hopelessness is not a Muslim cup of tea.

So I thought to myself that why am I being a person that I never was or wanted to be.

Why am I stopping, why this hopelessness/sadness getting inside of me.

Why am I not believing in my God/Allah like I always do and trust HIM that HE will never do me any harm.
That HE won't break me apart.
That HE wont put me in a situation that I cant deal with.
That HE does listen to his believer prayers sooner or later But HE does listen.

So here I am throwing my sadness and hopelessness away and continuing, pushing myself to continue with my dear blog. I know many people say that when you are not happy on the inside you don't do the what you like to do with passion. What I feel is that the people who push themselves even when they don't want to do what they are doing it makes them a stronger person. A courageous pupil who to continue to push themselves even when they don't WANT to continue in life.

God help them in whatever they are doing and gift them , for being brave enough to ignore/ attack the hopelessness/depression they were about to go through but refused to involve in that negative energy and believe in Him and in themselves.

As the saying is  'God/Allah help those who help themselves' and it is so true, when you ask your God to help you in whatever thing you need help in HE does help you out may you know it or not.

Lets browse through some point that I would like to share with you all and for my future self from this post:

1) Never feel sorry for yourself, and don't let worst part of your life ruin your life forever.

2) Bad things happens just like good thing happen.LIFE GOES ON. 

3) Allah/God make everything better even when you can't understand what is happening in your life, believe it is for the better-you just can't see the bigger picture.

4) Nothing happens for no reason. 

5) You learn from every experience. 

6) Don't let any tragedy stop you from continuing life, many years from now you will remember those days and be proud of yourself for conquering and defeating those days.

7) Life will get better, (In Sha Allah / if Allah wants)

8) You are worth it.

9) Be strong, you can do this, you can deal with any situation,Trust me God won't give you more than you can handle- HE knows you are strong human being now YOU believe it too.

10) Never ever ever QUIT on your life; it is very very precious for you to waste.

I know so many of you will be thinking that why am I being so iffy about this whole thing, about stopping my blog and not writing but if you knew me in person this blog is my love.
I love writing for you guys and sharing my thought all over this page and knowing that someone,somewhere will be reading my blog and gaining something from my post may that be related to beauty, fashion, life or whatever.

I love sharing my thought with you all and I wouldn't want to stop even if the sad days are daunting at me, I want to stand up and push them away and continue with something that makes me happy.

Who bloody ASQgenerates might just become something that even I would be shocked - keep on dreaming Amna, you got nothing to lose :D

And that what I want from you all my readers to do-keep on Dreaming and PUSHING you even don't know what Life has in store for you. You just have to keep on going.

when your soul say stop. 

You tell yourself to start, and push extra hard.

Who know what life has in store for you? 

That is it from me for today you folks....I hope you found this post somewhat helpful.

Please tell what do you do when you hear or get struck by the bad news; do you push or do you get in your shell like a turtle ?
and how do you make yourself fight the sadness that is inside of you ?

What I like to do is to watch millions and billion and gillions of Youtube videos seriously they take me to another world and relaxed.

That is it for now

Off I go now, see you all very soon :)

Love Amna
