Button UP!!!

Don't you just love it when you buy a piece of clothing and it makes you instantly happy? I love that feeling! It doesn't happen to often for me when I'm shopping. Recently, on a whim I went to a different Bloomingdale's then I normally go to. Not only did this particular location have my favorite brand Peace Love World, but they also had Rails. I never heard of Rails, but I said, let me give it a try. I love a good button down!!! I feel like it is a classic piece that can be dressed up or down and also transition from day to night. I usually reach for plaid button downs that include pink, just my preference.

I cannot stop raving about the fit of my new Rails button down. In addition to the amazing fit, it is so soft! It literally feels like pajamas. Ya know how some button downs are stiff and just look stiff and heavy on? Not Rails. They have achieved that effortless cool laid back vibe perfectly.

Here is a picture on how I styled mine. Click here to check out Rails.

Every one in awhile, you get down and find yourself in a rut. Right now I'm in a serious rut. Everything just isn't going in my favor. I try and try, but I get no where. I saw this quote and it really helped me, not only in my weightless battle, but in my overall life. you need to step back and observe life. See what you have overcome and how much you have grown. Have to stay in the positive!!!

The 5 Minute look

Those days when you wakeup late or just have no energy at all are the ones that make getting ready that much more difficult! Recently, I have been so uninspired makeup wise that I don't want to get ready. As you know, I am the kind of person that has to always look presentable. These are my go to items when I don't want to put any effort into getting ready.

Some concealer where it is needed, blush for the glow, contour a smidge so that my face doesn't look as round, black eyeliner on the water line and tight line and then a few coats of mascara!

This look makes me feel like I have something on, but without much effort!

Must have

Have you ever purchased a makeup product and almost instantly after using it, you ask yourself where has it been all your life? A deep love almost obsession starts immediately? I recently purchased Bobbi Brown's shimmer brick in beige. I'm not a fan of Bobbi's makeup, even though I should be since she is from Jersey. I know her shimmer bricks have a cult following, so I jumped on the train! I now understand the hype and must have status of these products. I love all the colors mixed together. It adds the right amount of highlight without any glitter! It's more or a shimmer and glow! Amazing!

Tuesday's Thoughts

Are you afraid of the unknown? Things are always easier in your comfort zone, but why not take the risk? You may be scared of the risk, fear of failing, and rejection. You will never know if you don't take that step. I recently stepped out of my comfort zone to pursue something I have been wanting to do for years. While it is exciting, I am also nervous! From here I can only go up and I'm excited for that! 

Stay tuned to what my project is.

Be Prepared

I am always that girl who will run to the post office down the street or to the food store dressed. You won't ever find me with my glasses on, hair up and in sweats. Maybe a hoodie, a fashionable one though with jeans. If I go out looking a mess, I will inevitably run into multiple people I know. Therefore, I am always ready when I go out to see whom ever I come across.

This was my lunch outfit...a little over the top...maybe? But it is better to be prepared for anything that comes your way.

I love this tank with the added beading, but I of course needed to accessorize! 

Since I purchased this chevron necklace, it is so easy and adds a little something extra to outfits

 I love to stack these bracelets! The bigger the arm party, the better!
