For a person who doesn't watch much TV (which explains being a blogger) you can add me to the cult list. I have … [Read more...]

The Basic Tee


    For some reason I have SERIOUSLY been obsessed with the basic tee. A quality tee shirt will seriously make a huge difference in your wardrobe. It all started from my random visit to Madewell. I was browsing their sale section and came across the oversized tee that was not cotton. This tee is so forgiving for your problem areas. At first it was hard to stomach paying more than $30 for a tee, but after wearing it you soon realize that material and the quality of the tee is … [Read more...]

Affordable Spring/..


It's wedding season! After just scrabbling for what to wear this past weekend, I wanted something appropriate for the season. I realized everyone at the wedding was thinking the same thing I was. All of the guests were colorful and comfortable due to the hot weather but stayed on trend with prints and bright colors. Avoiding all white dresses and all black dresses, make a statement with a bright green or orange (which is very popular). Choosing a A-line dress helps stay cool and gives any shape … [Read more...]

My kinky-coily hair is so thick and has grown so much in the pass few months, but you can't tell because of the shrinkage. Oh SHRINKAGE. Anyway, I'll … [Read more...]

Couture Fall 2014:..


via After stalking Anna Dello Russo Instagram page, I got a beautiful glimpse of the glammed up 18th-century dresses for the Fall 2014 Chanel Couture runway show. Above are my favorites out of the collection. The show seemed to be placed in a royal castle with the all white set-up and open stage. I felt like these dresses would have been worn in Game of Thrones if only they had the time and creativity as well as the fabrics and Karl's brain to pull this off. The modern twist with the matching … [Read more...]

The sun is hot and the mosquitos are biting!  I hope you are spending time with friends and family who love to have a … [Read more...]

Summer 2014: Vasel..


There's nothing like putting on lotion after you shower and walking outside in the humidity and feeling like you need another shower. Some lotions can be so thick and sticky when mixed with humid weather or sweat. I recently got this product in a swag bag and I was soo excited to try it! I took it to a friends pool party and it was a hit. I have very dry skin so using this product after the chlorine helped hydrate my skin back to life! Takeaways: Easy to carry in beach bag Gives a light … [Read more...]
