June & July Favorites - 2017

"Every failure is a lesson. If you are not willing to fail, you are not ready to succeed."

Happy Thursday sweetie pies! I hope you all had an awesome day! You guys know that I love having girl talk and sharing my most recent obsessions. From fashion to beauty to lifestyle, I have favorites that I have been loving for the months of June and July. Make sure to check them out below!

1. Pink Satchel Handbag
If you have joined the sweetie pie family recently, then you may have noticed this adorable handbag. Originally from Charming Charlie, it was at a very reasonable price, just under $40! I have been styling this bag with some of everything due to its soft pastel color and size. It is the perfect size for an everyday bag in my opinion - not too big or too small. It also comes with a long strap to wear over the shoulder.

2. Mirrored Sunnies
When it comes to the summer time, I neeeeedddd my mirrored sunnies! No summer #OOTD would be complete without them! They can instantly make a t-shirt and denim shorts look super cool with minimal effort! Yes please!

3. Polka Dot Ruffle Sleeve Blouse
I have already shared this blouse once on the blog but I absolutely love this blouse! It is definitely one of my go to pieces for work. It is fun, flirty and totally comfortable! I was a little nervous that I wouldn't really love this top but I was so wrong! I encourage any fashionista to give this blouse a try!

4. Royal Blue Fit and Flare Dress
Now it is no secret that I love fit and flare dresses but this one is definitely my favorite one to date because of all the details. I love the V cut, lace crochet, and the color! I have worn this dress more times than I probably should say so we will just leave that to the imagination.

5. Cantu Leave In Conditioner
I have been loving this product for my hair. It makes my hair super soft and smells amazing!

6. Aborewen Embellished Sunglasses
The "Extra AF" part of me LOVES these sunnies! They are so glam and so fabulous! I have been wearing these with everything from tshirts and jeans to glam it up. Or I style it with a beautiful dress or romper. Not to mention they are super affordable at only $25!

7. Aromatherapy Lavender and Chamomile Lotion
I love applying this at night after a nice bubblebath. It is super relaxing and helps me to go to sleep. Plus I get to enjoy the relaxing fragrance as I am falling asleep without having to burn a candle. Plus you sweetie pies know that I love me some lavender!

8. Girl Boss Book 
I haven't finished reading this yet but I am loving it thus far! If you are perhaps living under a rock for the past few years, the owner of Nasty Gal has written a book and it is definitely worth the read!

9. Mambi Sticker Book
Shoutout to all of my planner junkies out there! You guys know that I am a sucker for a good layout. These stickers make planning so much fun! Even though each sticker book has a theme, there is still a variety of stickers so I definitely love that!

As some of you may know I suffer from eczema. I first noticed I had eczema as a child and was able to keep it pretty much under control. Within the past 2-3 years it has begun to rear it's ugly head again. With all of the smog, the sweating, the heat, the stress, the fragrances and a number of other factors - it has ignited my eczema to where it is hard to use a lot of my favorite things. One of which is perfume. I love smelling good plus it helps to lift my mood. I usually prefer to spray it on my wrist and behind my ears but had to stop doing that. I then resulted to misting it on my clothes but that still would irritate my…

Hey hey sweetie pies! Today's post is a look that I have had in heavy rotation. I mean we all have that "no fail" outfit that we love to wear any and everywhere. It is super comfy and you still look put together. I opted for this cotton, slightly oversized button down and dark wash fitted jeans. I love wearing it with sandals for daytime, heels for nighttime and sneakers for weekend. For the daytime, I pretty much style it like I have here. I have just wore the shirt as is with my jeans cuffed. I paired it with this conv…
