"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.

"Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit. We are all the same in this notion: The potential for greatness lives within each of us." ~ Wilma Rudolph

**I received samples courtesy of Derive Colognes to review. Even though these samples were given for my boyfriend David and I to review, all opinions are our own.**
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…

How to Transform your Simple Daytime Look

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…
