Wednesday already? 2020 is already off to a fast start & if you are looking for a few “athleisure” pieces then you have clicked on the right post. Amazon has become one of the fastest growing online websites to shop for just about anything you can think of. What better way than to receive it in 2 days as well?! Amazon Prime has become a HUGE part of my life when it comes to online shopping. If you’re looking for something & can’t find it anywhere… I’m pretty sure Amazon will have it lol. Products from amazon have become my top selling items according to my commision analytics. CRAZY!!! You guys love Amazon & so do I ! I decided to make a fun graphic to show you all some of my favorite casual athletic/leisure finds.
Happy Monday & I hope today is going well for all of you. We are officially one month away until Valentine’s Day. I know for some of you it is really exciting but for others it might just be another day to remind you of your single status. Well, I am here to tell you that is OKAY. To me, Valentine’s Day is more than a dozen roses or a card. It’s a holiday of love & to remind you of all the people that surround you with care as well as joy! So if you’re single right now and dreading the holiday, remember that next year you might not be. Enjoy the moment but not the status.

Thank you for reading and all of your support as always!
Now when I say those two words, I could basically write you a novel but we won’t do that today. Reflecting back on this year and all the change that took place has been on my mind for quite some time now. I’ve grown as a person and have met so many wonderful people along the way. I’ve traveled to so many places this year which I am forever grateful for (I love to travel). Let’s not forget the biggest excitement of 2018 when Justin asked me to be his wife! This year has been a road full of up & downs but also so much excitement. If there is anything twenty eighteen has taught or helped me with it would be the following: passion, strength, focus, and faith.
Finding that perfect job is tough, but once you’ve found that one thing that makes you jump out of bed in the morning that’s when you know it’s the real deal. This past year blogging took up 75% of my life, besides school of course. I have had SO much passion for the fashion industry & inspiring others through my blog that sometimes I have to tell myself to take a day off. There’s always people who don’t understand what I do or why I put so much effort into it but that’s totally okay. Twenty eighteen has taught me to pursue my passion & how to create your own definition of success.
“Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire”
Have the strength to forgive but also never forget. Have the strength to say NO to toxic people in your life whether that be friends or family. In fact, it’s your life, isn’t it? No one else has a say except you and if anyone has a problem with that… well that’s on them. You have no reason to apologize for something you didn’t create. Sometimes it just is what it is.
“All the adversity I’ve had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me”
– Walt Disney
Something I struggled with this year was focus and patience. I just had the hardest and most challenging semester of my life. Trying to grow my blog too required A LOT of patience & trial/error. In 2019, I’m beyond determined to just FOCUS. I know it is super easy to get side tracked (TRUST ME I KNOW LOL). But I have noticed if you just mark things off your to-do list instead of procrastinating it is so much easier on you & your mental health! I felt so overwhelmed at times this year and my anxiety levels were through the ROOF but that didn’t stop me from pushing forward.
“To create something exceptional, your mindset must be relentlessly focused on the smallest detail.”
Now this is the most important thing. Always have FAITH. This is something I would like to stay more focused on this upcoming year. We get side tracked a lot and tend to forget how much God has given us to be grateful for. Also, following our own path and making our own decisions instead of his is where we sometimes fail. I’ve always said everything happens for a reason and that has come to be true from what I’ve experienced. One of my biggest blessings this year was Justin asking me to be his wife. From previous years, I experienced so much disappointment & heartbreak that I didn’t know what God had planned for me at the time. Fast forward a few years later and now I know EXACTLY what he was doing. He was giving me the guy I had dreamt of my entire life, the one who has always been by my side, the person I share so many laughs and memories with day-to-day, and the one who loves me unconditionally. Faith goes a LONG way and for that I am forever blessed.
“I want to be a woman who overcomes obstacles by tackling them in faith, instead of tiptoeing around them in fear.”
Good Evening Loves & Happy Monday!
Let’s just say I was sweating taking this photo & feeling really anxious for fall weather. I’m ready for cooler nights & Halloween movies, anyone else? This transition to fall needs to hurry up because I have so many sweaters that I want to share with you guys. The anticipation is REAL. You guys will see a try on sesh on the blog later this week. I just ordered a full length mirror a few days ago so I’m waiting for it to arrive. SUPER excited about that.
Anyways, Forever 21 has had some GREAT fall pieces and new arrivals lately. I’ve stocked up on a few things and one is this distressed sweater. Last fall I wore one like this on repeat in a pink color so of course when I saw this one in white for only $22 I grabbed it off the rack as fast as I could. It is stocked in all sizes online and y’all .. I am already obsessing over it. Definitely a must have for fall! Another fall trend this season is going to be FELT hats for sure. This is a Target purchase from last year but I have my eye on a Free People one that I know I will wear a TON if I decide to purchase.
My boots were a steal for sure. They come in a metallic color on sale for under $20 so check out the link aboveeee ^^
Hope y’all have a great week! Stay tuned for a Giveaway on my Instagram tonight you won’t want to miss!
Let’s start off this Tuesday by asking you guys a question. Did you know Starbucks has a “secret” menu item called The Pink Drink?! Well I didn’t until yesterday. I’ve seen so many bloggers drinking a pink drink from Starbucks and I finally googled it. Maybe a lot of you already know or maybe I am just out of the loop of Starbucks hidden drinks lol. It actually tastes really good. I am not sure what is exactly in it except the strawberry part. It does take a little getting used to at first but if you’re a wholeheartedly fruit person then hey props to you.
Anyways, I have been obsessing over this rainbow top by Free People. I saw it one day shopping and walked out without it.. silly me. A few days ago I went back and it was on SALE! I mean you guys should have seen how happy I was hahah. I found this top online for you guys and it is 40% off. I am wearing a size small if any of you feel the need to check it out! This top comes in four different colors and currently is stocked with all sizes!
So now for the bad news, I bought these cute shorts before Spring break when they were on sale at Red Dress Boutique so they are now sold out. BUT I have found a dupe for y’all right here. So not really bad news right?Yay! Now for these sunnies that I found for only $12 on AMAZON. Such great quality and I am loving how colorful the lenses are. Absolutely perfect for summer, don’t you agree?
Have an amazing Tuesday!
Congrats, we made it to Friday! The weather is absolutely beautiful here. I was so tempted to go lay out by the pool yesterday but it was PACKED. Last night Justin took me on the cutest picnic ever and we watched the sun set. I know so cliche , but it was seriously one of the best dates ever.
I have become a huge gingham fanatic lately. I’ve seen so many tops, dresses, and even shorts that are covered in gingham! My favorite thing to do is pair a huge colorful pair of earrings with this pattern. I definitely have a thing for off the shoulder tops. This one was a huge bargain and it is sold out but I found a dupe for you guys here & it’s only $17. I am linking my favorite black and white gingham tops below, so be sure to check them out!
- Forever 21 ruffled gingham crop top
- Old Navy off the shoulder smocked top
- Shop Bop gingham one-shoulder blouse
- Target smocked off the shoulder top
Now lets talk about these awesome black ripped jean shorts. This was my first item I bought from Topshop ( size 6) and I seriously love this pair of shorts. I will be wearing them on repeat in the summer! If you don’t have a pair yet I highly suggest these for sure.
Have a great weekend!
