Hi Friends,

Can you believe we are in September? This year has gone by so crazy fast. I can’t believe I am looking for sweaters for the fall already. It feels like the summer just started. What are your plans for the fall? I am actually gong to put together a blog post about what I want to do this fall.

About this outfit. I found this skirt at the Loft last year, and never got around to wearing it before it became chilly. I have been so excited to wear this skirt now! I love the way it looks with these cute little sneakers form Target. The first time I put this outfit together I was at a marriage retreat for my church, with lots of walking involved. Comfort and style is when I needed when at events like this.

Question, what are you most excited about for the fall other than fall fashion? On the typic of fashion let talk about this look. I have had this shirt since last summer and never got around to wearing it. As for these shorts, I found them in the Gap Outlet for SIX DOLLARS yes I had to buy them. Unfortunately,  I can’t find any of these items, but I am sure you will be able to make this outfit with what you already have in your closet.

Hello There,

Happy Thursday, I am so excited the work week is winding down. I don’t have any plans for this weekend and I am okay with that. I know this sounds really boring, but I plan to do much needed housework. Welcome to adulthood lol. What are your plans this weekend? I hope it is something fun 🙂

A couple weeks ago I decided to take a walk, in Old Navy, when I came across this top and I fell in love with it. I know there is nothing really special about it, but I new it would go really good well with this skirt, it also looks really cute untucked. I’m sure I will do a post on that soon. I actually wore this skirt for my engagement photos three years ago. Let me tell you about these shoes… I found them in Ross, they are so comfortable, y’all, they were $30. Winning!

Hi Friends,

Sorry there were to post last week. I was so busy and, I was able to take my photos but then didn’t have the time to edit and upload them. Now it is time for the bounce back! I am here and doing what needs to be done to style outfits for you all. J-Crew Purple Dress-1982J-Crew Purple Dress-1897J-Crew Purple Dress-1918J-Crew Purple Dress-1999J-Crew Purple Dress-1919J-Crew Purple Dress-1923J-Crew Purple Dress-2006

Question for you all.. did you watch the bachelor last night? What are your thoughts? Being honest, it was so annoying. I wanted her to pick Eric, I could feel their chemistry through the screen. It was hard to see him go, but there was still Peter, then there was just Brian. Enough of that… here is the outfit.

Summer Empties

Summer Empties-3Summer Empties-4Summer Empties-9

Happy Tuesday Friends,

This is the first time I am doing a post like this. Typically, I do my empties on my youtube channel, look at me switching thing up 🙂 Let’s jump right in. I wanted to do a short review on these products, being I have used them up I can tell you how I feel about them.

Sunday Riley Good Genes I really enjoyed this product. There is something about using a product that makes you feel luxurious. Every night I would get excited because I got to give myself a mini facial in a bottle. Unfortunately, this product caused my skin to break out over time. My entire jawline had small bumps which then turned into scars that I am still trying clear up. I really wished it would have worked for my skin because I really loved this product.

Thayers Witch Hazel Okay so… you need this product. This was like no other toner I have every used before. I used to rave about the Neutrogena No Alcohol Toner. I use this product for so many things.  It works great to take my makeup off, to tone, as a refresher and a micellar water. It helps to decrease inflammation and redness (that’s what pimples are!). I can go on and on about this product. I already repurchased and I had to get a back up to my back up.

OLEHENRIKSEN Truth Advanced Moisturizing Crème I have used this product before, this is about my second or third bottle. It is a great moisturizer but there isn’t much special about it. I do like the way it smells. It is lacking something that I can’t put my finger on. Not to discount this is a great  product, but I still wanted to try other things. I know that is a weird way to describe this product but it is great.

Kate Somerville Ret-A-Sphere I don’t know why I have to explain how many times I have repurchased each product but I feel the need to share lol. This is number 2 for this product. In my mind retnol will have fade my dark spots because it is a chemical exfoliant. Welcome to my 30s because my skin must have changed, this freaked my skin out. The first tube I used it did wonders for my skin which is why I wanted to repurchase it.

Shea Moisture Shea Oil When I was in college my hair started to grow like a tumbleweed (lol) my hair dresser said it may have been the shea butter I was using. I had been on the hunt to find a better shea oil for natural hair and here it is. I found it.  I loved this oil it was amazing very moisturizing and it is inexpensive!

Deva Curl One Condition I love this line! It does wonders for my hair. Washing my hair has been much easier. It provided so much slip making my wash day so much easier. I think I may have talked about this line in other post. Overall if you have natural hair… this should be in your shower. It is amazing.

Two Faced Better Than Sex Mascara I tried this mascara just to try something new. I normally wear the Benefit They’re real I wanted to try this because I heard great things about it. It was great, but I prefer they’re real.

L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Primer I. Love. This. Stuff! I can’t with out it. I am a big eyelash person, and when I discovered this my life has been forever changed. I think this is my 4th tub.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer I really really really like this brow pencil. I was using a cheap eyebrow pencil which was great, I had used that pencil for years, but I did like the face I needed to sharpen it after each use. I was on the hunt to find a brow pencil that I didn’t need to sharpen. I got lucky, not only did I find a twist up pencil but it also has an angled tip. It makes a more precise line and angle.

Scallop Sweater & Utility Skirt

Happy Friday Friends,

A few months ago I shared my shopping trip with you all. Here are tow pieces I purchased while on this trip. I love wearing bright colors with olive green. Olive green is a neutral to me. If I have something, I have it in olive green, I love how it goes with EVERYTHING.

It is weird that I wear sweaters in the summer time, here in the DC area it has been about 100 degrees. I spend most of my days in a freezing cold office so an outfit like this it works very well for my lifestyle now, and will transition well for the fall weather.
