Sunnies I’m Obsessed With Lately

IMG_7255

Hi everyone + Happy Sunday!

I hope you all had a nice weekend—I sure did! The weather was amazing, so it got me thinking a LOT about sunglasses that I like lately.

Recently I have been following Youtuber Alex Garza, and her content is FAB! I will link her channel here: https://www.youtube.com/user/TheAlexandreaGarza if you like her stuff, subscribe! She puts out awesome videos and one of them, featuring stuff she buys on Amazon, had those amazing glasses in the photo above. When I saw that she wears them, I had to have them. Plus, they’re super cute and different than the sunnies I normally wear. With a really chic outfit, they could totally work. I am not saying I’ll wear them every day, but at the right time they’re really fun.

Of course the second I purchase these, I see an article on Facebook featuring “Retro Sunglasses you’ll be seeing a lot more of” and it has the pic of these EXACT glasses, but with white on the rim…oh well! Trends catch up to us all eventually.

Blazer & shoes from Charlotte Russe, Jeans from Zara and tank from Marshalls (I think!!?) Sunglasses from Forever 21 which I LOOOOVE! Colourpop on the lips xo

Hi everyone!

Lately when I come up for an idea for a post, I think to myself, would this headline make me want to read the article? I think it is a really useful tactic for writers to do because if I myself wouldn’t read it, what would make my readers want to?

With this in mind, I am channeling a LOT of the questions I get asked by my friends and acquaintances. My friends always ask me what stores I shop at, where I get my clothes and how I get them for so cheap. (Shopping the sales will be its own post!)

For now, let’s get into my three favorite stores to shop at — or shall I say, the three stores I shop at the most, that do the job, are trendy and affordable.

How I do my signature top knot

Different hair styles are SO fun to me! I think hair is such a challenge. Makeup can be learned, practiced and perfected to your liking; style takes years to build, but once you know what you like and what works for you, you’re golden. Hair, on the other hand is always a surprise.

I don’t know about you, but one day I can straighten my hair and it’ll look a certain way, and the next do the exact same thing and it can look completely different…what is with that?! Never mind curling my hair, that’s a shot in the dark, and so are certain updos, braids and ESPECIALLY top knots.

So, how do I get my signature top knot? Let’s get started!

Stylin’ in Simone by HFX

Hi Gals & Guys!

Today I am here to chat about one of my most favorite spring jackets. HFX Performance let me try out a couple of jackets from their spring 2018 collection, and the Simone 365 Air Jacket is SUCH a hit!

If you’re like me, you have NO clue what to wear for a jacket in the spring time! Chilly in the morning, sweating by noon, and then chilly at night again. That problem that I always have has never been solved before. However, the Simone is making me confident that I can be comfortable all spring long, no matter the crazy weather throughout the day.

A Very Glowy Spring

IMG_6725.JPG

Ahh, I can almost picture it—it’s about 60 degrees out, there’s moisture in the air and it’s replenishing your old winter dry skin by the second. So long, winter skin—hello moisturized, glowing skin.

All winter long my face was dry and flaky—no matter what I did to exfoliate, cleanse and moisturize, nothing seemed to work. My dry skin was not budging, even though my skin care routine stayed consistent. Thank goodness spring is almost here because it seems as though once the spring air hits, my dry skin is gone—along with the last frigid day.

How I edit my Instagram Photos

IMG_6678.PNG

Hi everyone!

I decided to do a screen recording of how I edit my Instagram photos because I only really use Instagram to edit my pictures. A lot of the time I hear of bloggers using multiple apps to edit and then taking the photo to Instagram, but I see no faults with Instagram’s editing tools!

I have this feeling that when I transfer a picture from app to app, that it loses a lot of its quality. However, if you minimize the amount of times the photo has to be transferred and uploaded again, it has a better chance of keeping its original quality. I don’t even know if that is true, but it feels like it is to me.

SO, with that in mind, below is HOW I edit my Instagram pictures using JUST Instagram! Watch the video below and then refer to the steps below the video for any qualifications on what I did.
