Hey hey sweetie pies, happy Thursday and Happy February! If you saw Tuesday's post then you would've seen my Galentine's gift guide where I shared gift ideas for every budget. Feel free to go check that out if you haven't already. 

I lowkey can't believe that we are now in February! Where does the time go? I accomplished some of my monthly goals and others not so much but nothing a little regrouping won't fix. Overall January was good to me and I got to try out some new products that I have been gravitating towards all month. I have been loving some planner products, skincare products, beauty and accessories. Check out my monthly favorites below!

I got this lipstick in a gift set from my Nana for Christmas. Ever since then, it has been my go to for special events or for night time looks. I love the dark shade and it has a gloss-like finish.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Lip Gloss in Berry Provocative
This lip gloss also came in the gift set and I have been loving it! For daytime looks, I often will wear this with mascara, a little eyeshadow and this lip gloss. It gives you the color tint but it is still clear like a lip gloss.

2018 Happy Planner
You guys already know how much I love my planner. I have been loving the neutral, minimalist color palette on the inside. While most happy planners have colorful palette on the inside, this one doesn't. This planner contains primarily white, gray and black colors with a few rose gold foil accents throughout the planner. For my rose gold and minimalist lovers, this planner is for you. I love having complete freedom to create my weekly and monthly layouts without having to compete with an already colorful or busy background. I have been having so much going on with dancing and working so this planner has basically been a lifeline!

MAMBI Productivity Sticker Book
I have several sticker books but this is the one that I have been reaching for the most. It has great productivity stickers for meetings, projects and calls - some of which you can write on. It also contains stickers solely for decorative purposes and it also offers gold foil options.

Amber and Argan Body Mist
David got me this body spray for Christmas. It is so sweet and perfect to wear on date night! I love the look of the bottle. I have been wearing body mists instead of perfumes because of my skin. My eczema has been flaring up really bad this season so I opt to just mist my clothes. But with that said, the fragrance lasts all day on me.

Birch and Argan Body Mist
David also got me this spray for Christmas and I could smother myself in this scent! It is perfect for daytime and I love the soft sweet fragrance! David picked these out for me and I think he did perfectly!

Gold Midi Rings
My midi rings have been that nice finishing touch to an outfit when I am covered in layers or a chunky sweater. Sometimes your bracelets get lost in the sleeves but people can always see that little gold shimmer. Plus they look great with a cute mani!

Black Faux Fur Scarf (Similar)
With these Arctic snaps that we were receiving here in Houston, most of January was pretty cold. Plus with this whole flu epidemic going on I make sure to bundle up everywhere I go! I love layering this bad boy with any and everything! Whether I was going to dinner or going to rehearsal, you could definitely catch me out rocking this scarf.

L'Oreal Paris Telescopic Mascara
This mascara is simply everything! I've talked about this mascara before and I am talking about it again. I freaking love it! It is hands down my fave drugstore brand mascara. I love the small fine wand which makes it great for getting those corner lashes.

Songs:
Lonely - Demi Lovato
Love you better - Ty Dolla Sign ft. Lil Wayne and The Dream
Motorsport - Migos ft. Cardi B and Nicki Minaj
Still Down - H.E.R.
Perfect - Dave East ft. Chris Brown

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!
