Trending: Leopard

I am sure I have said this before but I will say it again: I LOVE LEOPARD. I love how you can make it fun and sassy or dress it up for work and make it a really classy. This dress is a favorite because I love the cut and the detail.

Leopard Shift Dress

It’s hard editing these pictures and putting these posts together now that I am back in Rexburg. I just miss the Sacramento sun so much! I literally drove my car for 15 seconds to the mailbox the other day because I didn’t want to try and cross my apartment complex that is currently covered in a thick sheet of ice. Lazy or genius? I say the second 😉

Spring time is almost upon us and this dress is perfect for spring and summer! It is made of a super lightweight fabric that won’t be too heavy when the temperature starts to heat up. I am a sucker for leopard print so I knew this dress would be perfect! I wanted to add a little something to give it more shape and this belt adds a great touch, not too skinny but not too thick either.  I am a firm believer that a belt can help any outfit look amazing!

Sweater Weather and A Giveaway

Hello hello! Welcome back! My mind is already on Spring and hopeful thinking that Idaho will have warm temperatures again (very wishful thinking on my part!) It has been FREEZING cold here with a whole week that was just -1 to -29 with windchill. It was so bad that one of our cars just refused to turn on so it was fun trying to use one car between the two of us for work and school but we made it through and when it finally warmed up to 20 degrees the car gave in and started for us. Needless to say its been a rough start of the semester for us! We are only on week two and I already want it to be over with!  Continue reading “Sweater Weather and A Giveaway”

The Only Apple Watch Accessory You Need

My big Christmas present from Houston this year was an Apple Watch. I never thought that I would own one of these but after hearing about how much my sister loved hers and reading more about it I wanted to give it a try. Best decision ever! I use it way more than I ever thought that I would.  I have a pair of wireless headphones and paired with the watch it makes working out, texting, and talking on the phone a breeze.

And with every new accessory you need accessories for your accessory. Do you follow? Let me introduce you to Bytten. They make accessories for the things you wear everyday, your Apple Watch, your Fitbit, your Jawbone, all things that could use a little spicing up! I love my watch but I wanted to make it match my personality more, to add a little bling to make it fun! My watch has the rose gold mini glam stack on. How cute does it look?! It adds such a fun touch and is truly one of a kind. You can even get other stacks and double or triple up to really bling out your watch! I don’t think that you can ever have enough bling, I am really tempted to get another stack so I can layer them up. And if you have a Fitbit they have a ton of really cute stacks that you can add to those too to really make them pop and look cute! These are one of a kind and make great gifts too if you know someone who could use a little sparkle in their lives!

Boyfriend Tee Styled Two Ways

These pictures were *obviously* not taken in icy Rexburg and looking back at them makes me miss home so much! These outfits were perfect for the sunny weather in Sacramento.

This is my favorite new go to shirt from Ava Rae Boutique because its a great stand out color and can be styled in so many different ways! Here I have styled it to be more dressy and paired with my favorite moto leggings for a more casual look. I love both! If you haven’t checked out this boutique you need to. They have the cutest clothes that are so on trend! If I could have my whole wardrobe be from them I totally would. If you live in Boise or close to it then you can stop by their store as well! I live a little too far away to make the trip but want to see their dreamy store in person! This shirt is linked below and is under $30, get it before its gone!

Stay tuned for a giveaway coming up and another amazing outfit that I styled with pieces from their store!

Mauve

Happy Monday! Less than a week until Christmas! I have to admit that Christmas came for Houston and I a little early this year…we did a mini Christmas with just us yesterday before we make the drive to Sacramento to spend some time with our families. I really just could not wait any longer because I knew what was on my Christmas list and was just so eager to get it! It was a fun day, and even better now that we have a small break in-between semesters!  Continue reading “Mauve”

Dark Days

Winter is here and we have entered into what I fondly refer to as “the dark days” because I am not a snow lover (I probably mention this about 3 times a day) and when I can’t wear jeans and a t-shirt outside it is not good! Today’s look is a really cute, low key look that anyone can rock when it’s cold.  I love this plaid shirt because it is short sleeved! So perfect for the summer (but waayyyy too cold to show you right now!) And of course I have to rock the moto jeggings again because they are the best.  And these black ones are so great! As always details are below. Continue reading “Dark Days”

Stocking Stuffer Gift Guide

With Christmas just around the corner I wanted to put together a little stocking stuffer gift guide! These gifts are so great for stockings or when you need something cute for a friend that won’t break the bank.  Check out my ideas below for some gifts that are sure to be a hit!

LipSense

Time and time again I have talked about how much I love LipSense so of course it is number 1 on my guide! I love love love this stuff so much.  This is my newest color in the shade Cranberry and it is perfect for those night outs when you want a bold lip that won’t smudge or fade.  Great for Christmas and New Year’s too! Along with being the best product ever, you can also sign up to be a distributer and get LipSense for wholesale prices! You can talk to Rachel from fit.n.lips about that if you are interested or have any questions! Her website is linked HERE.

Tarte Tareist Pro Palette

This one is the more pricy option but so worth the money.  I mean check out those colors! I was a little hesitant about this one just because I wasn’t sure I would use all the colors but oh my gosh was I wrong.  Looking up tutorials and inspiration on Pinterest has helped me to step up my makeup game! I love that it has a ton of matte colors, I feel like that look is just so in right now and it is easy to create a really gorgeous look that isn’t too over the top, you know?

T-Shirts

Clothes are always a great option, especially when they are a great price and as cute as this one is! I scored this shirt for $13! I love the detailing on it, the little gold running through it just looks so pretty.  I have linked some shirts below that I think are super cute and are all under $15, perfect stocking stuffers!

Thread Wallet

And lastly I had to include a little something for the men in our lives.  This thread wallet is so great because you can throw it on your key chain and you are good to go! These muted, earthy colors are great for that special man in your life. img_4841
