April Favorites 2018

May is here and in full swing! I swear I just was wearing sweaters and booties like yesterday... April was quite the month for me. I performed in a choreographer's showcase - feel free to check out my review post to read about my experience. I started teaching at two dance studios. I have been working hard on my craft and enhancing my skill sets. I also have some products that I have been obsessing over this month as well as some miscellaneous products. Continue reading to check them out!

These earrings have been perfect for spring. The bright color goes great with my skin tone and they are super light. Did I mention that they are handmade?

Go to Daytime Look
This look has been everything lately. I have been all about comfort these days and this look is perfect for that. The button down is loose enough for those warm days and go great with any bottoms. This look is so easy to convert for the weekend and nighttime as well. Check out my post to read all about it. 

Your Ultimate Guide to Style
I love collecting fashion books. I like putting them on my desk, in the living room and searching for endless inspiration! This book includes a personal style quiz as well street style and celeb inspiration for 5 different style categories; classic, chic, feminine, cool and glam. The book also offers beauty inspiration from eye shadow, lipstick, nail polish and more!

Vanilla Chai Tea
You guys know that I am obsessed with coffee. Like I mean, I snap my Starbucks all the time even though I pretty much get the same thing everytime.  Plus I mean who really cares what I get anyway, lolz. But in the recent process of getting my life together, I have been drinking tea as an alternative. I have come to love vanilla chai! It gives that slightly smooth, creamy and slightly sweet taste. I love having a cup in the morning while watching the news or reading my devotion.

Little Witch Academia - Anime
S/o to my girl Bernadette for putting me on to this show! David and I love watching animes together and are always looking to binge watch on Netflix. I mean, who doesn't bingewatch these days?! The cartoon follows this adorably naive (in my opinion) and outspoken girl who aspires to become a witch but struggles at the academy. Plus she and her friends are always getting into something so it's good to watch with kids with a rating TV-Y7.

LA Color Last Nail Polish
This has become my fave drugstore nail polish. It is super inexpensive and the quality is great!. I usually use my OPI top coat with two coats of this polish. I have been doing my own manicures lately and it has been super fun to change my colors whenever I want. The color does last a long time.  My nails usually begin to chip after 8-10 days,

Vegan Colognes: Are they Eczema Friendly? | Product Review - Derive Colognes

"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

"I am a feminist, and what that means to me is much the same as the meaning of the fact that I am black; it means that I must undertake to love myself and respect myself as though my very life depends upon self-love and self-respect." ~ June Jordan

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…
