"these hips have never been enslaved, they go where they want to go, they do what they want to do. these hips are mighty hips, these hips are magic hips." ~ Lucille Clifton

Hey hey sweetie pies! With March on the horizon, I figured I would share what I have been loving this month! I haven't been much of a product junkie this month but I have been submerged in different medias. I have been watching a lot of Netflix as well as Anime. I also have a couple of home/lifestyle items so keep reading if you are interested in what I have been loving.

Queer Eye
David and I ending up stumbling upon this show on Netflix after finishing another series. He was hesitant to watch it with me at first but I think he enjoyed it. I think he got a kick out of the men on the show. The five men who would come in and help a man get his life basically. The men covered different aspects of personal life such as grooming, food, home and more. Not only was the show beyond entertaining but also inspiring. The queer men with their infectious personalities and positive outlook on life just instantly puts you in a better mood!
....annndd It inspires you to get your s*** together!

Assassination Classroom
If you are a fan of Anime and if you are a fan of action in anime, check this one out. My boyfriend David has gotten me into Anime and I am pretty much obsessed! We are always looking for new anime series to watch so if you guys have any good ones to suggest, shout them out in the comments!

My Hero Academia
I am beyond excited for the new season premiere to take place next month! David also put me on to this one. I love everything about this anime - the humor, the action, the story line - all keeping you plugged in. I am so excited to see what unfolds in the new season. Are there any anime lovers here that are watching this series?

Scarf as Head Wrap
This has been a lifesaver on days where my hair is being unruly. I got this scarf ages ago from Charming Charlie but I have been wearing it nonstop. I find myself grabbing this scarf time and time again. It is thick and big enough to cover my big head and hair (LOL). I usually throw this scarf on and some chic statement earrings to still look put together and fabulous!

I have been spending a lot of time on Pinterest. It is definitely more of a search engine than it is a social media site. I find myself using that more than google these days. I prefer searching on Pinterest these days because I can be very specific and yield the results that I need - without all the extra redundant fluff. Feel free to follow me here to see what all I am pinning!

Vanilla Bourbon Peach Candle
This candle is simply everything! I basically want to buy these in bulk. It has the perfect mixture of sweet and soft. It has notes of butterscotch, white peach, oak moss, vanilla bourbon and sugared musk.

Essentail Oil Diffuser
David got this for me and I have been loving it! I usually like to keep this in the bedroom while I leave the candles for the rest of the apartment. It has an auto shut off feature that will turn the diffuser off after it has ran out of water/oil. It also has a feature where you can choose which color light you want it set on. I like using red at night as it is the easiest for me and David to go to sleep. I fill it a little over halfway with water and then add a few drops of lavender essential oil. It is so great for those who want something small and inexpensive or if you trying one of these for the first time.

How to Make Metallic Work for your Office Wardrobe - Twirling in Rose Gold

"To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. To not dare is to lose oneself." ~ Soren Kierkegaard

Hey hey sweetie pies, happy Tuesday! One trend that I am loving for Spring is the metallic trend. I am spying it everywhere from shoes to clothing to accessories. I raved awhile back about my obsession with this skirt that I got from Charlotte Russe. I love it so much that I had to feature it again on here! For this particular look, I opted to for a more work appropriate ensemble. I paired it with this ruffle blouse that I got ages ago from New York and Company. Even though this piece is no longer available, I linked some ruffle blouses just as fabulous as they are affordable below.

To keep it business casual, I opted to pair it with a blazer and my fave booties. That way you are still covered but fashionable. You can totally make metallic work for the office by letting it be the focal point and pairing it with neutrals. That way you won't be going overboard, especial…

How to Style - B+W Striped Dress 3 of 3 Ways

"We must be willing to let go of the life we planned in order to have the life that is waiting for us." ~ Joseph Campbell
Hey hey sweetie pies I am excited to show you the third way that I styled this dress from Rainbow. I opted to wear it tunic style with a pair of jeans and strappy heels. If the length is too long you can opt to leave two or three buttons closed and tie the ends of the shirt into a knot. It helps you  pull off that easy casual look. You can easily create variations of this look by swapping a few things. You can easily swap out the heels for some flat mules for the perfect casual spring outfit. Or you swap out the jeans for long distressed shorts with sandals for sexy casual look. Even though I have styled this dress 3 ways, the options are really endless. Make sure to check out the 1st or 2nd way that I styled this dress. Which look is your fave? 1, 2, or 3?! Leave your thoughts below I would love to hear!
