Hello Loves,

I am sad to say I think I will be done posting summer looks. Let’s have a moment of silence to say good bye to the summer… Don’t you worry tho 🙂 if you want to see the looks I am currently wearing please go check out my Instagram for day by day looks 🙂

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!

Summer Empties

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.

Le Black and White Look

Good Day Ladies,

Did you see what I did in the title… (lol). This look screams Paris to me, hence the Le. Ok I am a dork but lets talk about the outfit. 🙂 This outfit is so easy and comfortable. I have been looking for another pair of black Pixie pants for some time now. I did want to find a budget option because I do have the purchased form J.Crew (currently on sale!) a few years ago, but I wanted to find a great pair on a budget. Old Navy has had a very similar pair if you are looking for a cheaper option which is what I am wearing today.

Hello there!

Now if this outfit doesn’t scream summer to you I don’t know what will? I love love love this shirt. I almost paid full price for it because I loved the way it felt. Luckily, it was on discount when I got to the register. These pants are really old from Banana Republic Factory. Honestly, your clothes hold up so much better when you invest in them. I think I am on year three with these pants. It helps that I only wear them a few times each year, but they have held up very very well, through stains and parties. The shoes, I don’t even know where they are from because they are so old.

Business in the Summer

Happy Tuesday Friends,

I am so happy that Independence Day is just next week! I love love love July 4th. Something about it just gets me so excited. Every year and it never fails. I purchased this skirt last year and never got around to wearing it. Don’t judge me, you know you do it too. I am getting it out to you this summer just in time for July 4th. I don’t plan on taking much leave, but I still have to be festive around the office. Here is a look I may or may not have already planned to wear Monday the 3rd. 🙂
