It's finally Fri-YAY!


I don't know about you, but it has been an exhaustinggg week and I am so glad that it's almost the weekend. I don't have any plans yet but I know that it definitely won't involve work lol! As for today, I am planning to tackle that closet of mine and finally finish the "spring cleaning" session that I've been putting off. ;-)

Jeans That Fit (the struggle is real)









Good morning, loves!


I apologize for the late post! My laptop stopped working mid-post last night and I have been attempting to figure out how to work our new Mac. Needless to say, it is very frustrating and difficult to go from a Windows to a Mac lol! Anyway, I'm talking about my least favorite clothing article today...jeans! Haha!

Venofye Review: Queen Bee Collection




Hello, lovelies!
I hope you all had an amazing Easter!


You should all know by now that I am the biggest skincare junkie. After working at a dermatologist's office for over three years, I realized just how important it is to protect and take care of our skin. A great skincare regime is crucial! Not only does it make your skin glow and create an amazing base for great looking make up, but it has important long term effects for slowing down the aging process and maintaining healthy skin. Today, I am reviewing Venofye, a luxury skincare brand that includes a very interesting element in their products.

Hi Beauties! Happy Friday!


Spring cleaning is officially in full force. It seems like I've been going through my closet for quite some time now, but there's something about that first peek of sunshine after a cold and rainy winter that makes me want to organize everything and do a huge purge haha. After all, I've got make room for a few Spring pieces right? ;-)

Rainy Day


 
Happy Monday, lovelies!

It's been raining a TON in California and everything is looking soooo green! I love this time of the year because the other-wise dry town that I live in has a gorgeous view of mountains, green hills and blooming wildflowers. It makes my work drive that much better. :-) Read on to see my favorite rain day outfit!

Happy Friday, pretty friends!

Today I'm talking about one of my favorite clothing lines ever... LC Lauren Conrad! If you've been reading my blog for a while, then you know that I LOVE all things Lauren Conrad. The feminine details, soft colors and flowy fabrics in her collection are definitely my cup of tea and it should come as no surprise that I have many of her pieces in my closet. You can imagine my excitement when I found out that she was coming out with a handbag line AND fine jewelry collection. Read on to see how I styled these pretty pieces!

How to Grow Your Instagram - Part One




Happy Wednesday beauties!

As promised, I am starting an Instagram series today yay! I have touched on this topic before but with the excess of questions I've gotten lately, I thought I'd share again :-) For the next few Wednesdays, I will talking about all things Instagram including tips and tricks and how to effectively grow your following along with how I personally edit my photos and what I do for my Instagram on a daily basis. If you have anything else you have questions about or would like me to add, let me know in the comments section!

So what qualifies me to give you advice on Instagram? Well, in the last 8 months, I have grown my following by 600% and it has been consistently increasing each month. I have learned a few things through extensive research over the years and through my own trial and error. I know that growing an Instagram account is something a lot of people struggle with (I was one of them too) and it may seem hopeless with the Instagram algorithm ever-changing, but it's definitely possible and it will open up so many more opportunities for your business and blog, which is why it is SO important.

The Comparison Trap & Friday Faves Link Up



Happy Friday, lovely friends!


I hope you all enjoyed your Valentine's day <3 I just wanted to thank you all SO much for your supportive and encouraging comments on my Blogiversary post. I'm so glad that you all could learn from what I've experienced in the past two years and I'm so happy to share that knowledge with you. I received an overwhelming response on one tip in particular: Not comparing yourself to others. This seems to happen so frequently in the blogging world and otherwise. I'll be sharing some insight with you all today regarding this important topic and whether you are blogger or non-blogger, I hope that this somehow helps.

Happy Monday, loves!


I hope you had an amazing weekend! I actually attended my first blogger meet up for Style Collective and met so many amazing ladies.

12 Things I've Learned in Two Years of Blogging & Friday Faves Link Up



Happy Friday, gorgeous gals!


Today is not only the best day of the week, but it also happens to be the best day of the year...(well, almost haha!). It's my two year blogiversary!! Holy smokes, the time has flown by! I still remember my days before the blog, always wondering if it would ever come to fruitation. I remember reading other blogs (blogs that are HUGE now) and wishing that one day I could be that brave...that one day, I could stop caring what others thought and take the risk to go after my dreams (I talk about this in my very first post). I envied those bloggers because they were courageous and put themselves out there for the world to see in the name of fashion. My dreams have become a reality because I took that leap of faith and I'm here to share a bit about my journey thus far and some important lessons that I've learned over the past two years.

11 Outfit Ideas for Valentine's Day



Good morning ladies!

Valentine's Day is right around the corner and I thought I'd share all of my "Valentine's Inspired" looks in one place! It's no secret that I loooove pink and probably wear it way too much (oops!) so of course, there are tons of pink outfits in this post with touches of purple. Apparently, I don't have any red...like at all. I made this discovery while rummaging through my closet this past week to find a red outfit for an upcoming event. I found a pair of red shoes, a purse and a coat. That's it! *cue jaw drop* I guess I'm just not a "red" kind of gal...although, I do like burgundy. :-) Check out my most recent V-Day inspired looks below!

Haute Pink



Hello beauties and happy Monday!

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend! I spent my time indoors and used the rain as an excuse to get organized and start decorating my home office. Eek! I've been putting it off for so long, but I finally got around to painting a few pieces and may have even found "the chair" (I've been searching for the perfect desk chair forever!). I'll be doing a reveal as soon as it's finished :-)

Velvet Embroidered Bomber



Hello gorgeous gals!


I hope you've all had a lovely weekend. We spent most of our time indoors reading and organizing while listening to the rain, but did end up taking a short drive to the outside of town to explore. The surrounding hills have finally turned green due to all the excess rain and it was clear enough to see the beautiful mountains in the background. This doesn't normally happen until April (if at all) so it was quite a treat!

Yay! Happy first Friday of the year!


I hope you all have had an amazing holiday. Even though I love the holiday season, I'm a little glad it's over so I can finally take some time to relax :-) And just because it's passed doesn't mean that you have to stop wearing your show topping pieces. Check out how I styled this fun dress below!

New Beginnings




Happy Wednesday, gorgeous friends!

This outfit may look familiar because...it is. I actually styled it almost a year ago in this post. Although, I don't normally post the same outfit twice on the blog, I thought I could give myself a free pass on this one since it's symbolic in a way. I have something so exciting to share and this dress is just so fitting...

Happy New Year!



Happy New Year!


I still can't believe it's 2017. Seriously, where did the time go? Our weekend was pretty laid back and consisted mostly of watching movies since it poured rain most of the time. Yesterday, the sun came out for a bit and we celebrated the first day of 2017 by attending a beautiful wedding. Read on to see some of my blogging reflections from this past year...
