Turquoise & Gold OOTD+ Recap

Turquoise & Gold OOTD+ Recap

Hello Beautiful PL's

I hope you all had a wonderful week but TGIF. My week turned out wonderful on Thursday when I got around beautiful sweet ladies at the Bloganista Mixer presented by Collage Designer Consignment in Vestavia Hills, AL. It is so great to be around a group of ladies that share the same interest and you don't feel weird hyped about being a blogger. I thought I would share with you all what I wore and some pictures of the mixer. Thanks See Jane Write for having a wonderful event! 

I wore this beautiful Turquoise dress- that has been sitting in my closet for months. I paired it with gold accessories and nude laced up heels. I didn't pair with bright shoes because the dress is the statement piece. Curly hair definitely made this a mermaid look! 


 This dress makes me want to salsa for some reason... :)


I chose to add gold accessories to match my gold glitter nails. A girl can never have to much bling on! 

Outfit Details:
Dress: Boohoo
Jewelry: Forever21
Shoes: JustFab

Bloganista Mixer Recap
Make sure to check out the shop they have amazing pieces for all my beautiful PL's! xoxo




 I so need this picture in my vanity room! 



I hope you enjoyed my outfit of the day and recap of the Bloganista Mixer. If you are interested in becoming a blogger or just want to know more about blogging make sure to come to the Bloganista Mini-Con August 1, 2015. I hope to see you there! :)

LBD or LDD?

LBD or LDD?

Hi Beautiful PL's


The summer is all about going to events such as a wedding or blogger party, some dressy and some casual. The big debate has been do you stay traditional and wear a little black dress (LBD) or break the rules and wear a little denim dress (LDD)? I say break the rules, have fun and wear the little denim dress. There are so many styles/cuts of denim dresses that you can wear them to just about any kind of event. I wouldn't recommend wearing a denim dress to the White House for a formal dinner but out to brunch or on a date would be perfect. 

I can't lie when I think of a denim dress I imagine me being in pigtails with sneakers as a little girl. I never thought I would grow up and make it look chic with heels. Its a piece that keeps evolving with you through out the years. 

Below are 3 different styles of the denim dress and how to dress them up or down. Enjoy XOXO 

Outfit 1: Dress, Bag, Earrings: H&M || Sandals: Gojane || Wedges: Shoedazzle
Outfit 2: Dress: Boohoo || Necklace: H&M
Outfit 3: Dress, Heels, Flats: Gojane || Earrings: H&M || Bag: Shoedazzle

Berry in the Summer?

Berry in the Summer?

Hi Beautiful PL's!!

When you think of summer lipsticks you imagine pinks, oranges, nudes and corals. Now think of your favorite berry lipstick....I am sure you imagined the Fall season. If you love a cool or warm tone berry lipstick get it out and wear it this summer. Berry lipsticks can be worn in the Summer too! The color has been seen on a lot  MUA's and celebrities such as Rihanna and Kendall Jenner.



This trend is a great way to mix up your lipstick and transition into the colder months. Find a berry tone that works great for your skin tone by heading to your local drugstore or beauty counter. I found a beautiful berry cool tone lipstick from the Wet n Wild collection.

To wear your berry lipstick like a pro make sure to do the following:
#1 Exfoliate your lips.
(Nothing is worse than a beautiful color on chapped lips)
#2 Line lips with lip liner or use a lip brush to apply perfectly.
#3 Place a piece of tissue over mouth and sweep translucent powder over your lips. This will ensure your lipstick last longer.

Here is how I wore my cool tone berry lipstick Cherry Picking.
I used a lip brush to achieve the crisp edges.

Jumping for Jumpsuits

Jumping for Jumpsuits


Hello Beautiful PL's


All shapes and sizes can wear a jumpsuit/jumper. It all depends on the fabric color and fabric pattern. Have confidence and jump into your jumpsuit! I will show you how to rock a jumpsuit for petite and curvy body types. 

Hat: Boohoo | Vest: Boohoo | Shoes: Shoedazzle


Jumpsuit: Maurices

Petite and Curvy: If you are vertically challenged like I am go for a shorts jumpsuit and add a pair of heels to elongate your legs. (Avoid ankle straps) If you are petite but do not like showing your legs wear a solid color jumpsuit and pair with heels or wedges. Try to avoid gathered bottoms this will make your legs appear to be shorter. If you have problems with your mid section do not wear a fitted or bright color jumper. This will draw attention to your stomach and make it appear larger. Instead go for a mix print or loose fitting jumpsuit and add a belt to quench your waste in. Also, add a jacket to give the illusion of a smaller waste.


I had the opportunity to collaborate with the beautiful SaseeChicFashion and EclecticallyMegan to show you how to style a jumpsuit for curvy and tall women! Make sure to check them out! :)

~Beach Bag Essentials~

~Beach Bag Essentials~


Hello Beautiful PL's!!! 

I hope you all had a Lux and safe weekend enjoying time with your families, bbq, and if you were lucky time at the beach. This weekend I enjoyed time with both of my families (mines and spouses). It is so delightful to have two loving and fun families to spend the holiday with. We enjoyed bbq, watching fireworks, and laughing all night. 

Even though we did not go to the beach this 4th of July I will be in attendance in two weeks for my birthday! (YEAH!!) With preparing for a beach trip you must make sure you have all the essentials to enjoy your time in the sun! Nothing is worse than getting to the beach and forgetting something in the hotel such as sunscreen. Below are my beach bag must have items. I hope this helps you prepare for you beach trip! 






Having a beach bag big enough for all your items is very important so you do not have multiple bags to lug around. I love this Pineapple bag because it is perfect for summer and has enough room to put all your essentials.







What is a cute pineapple beach bag without the matching beach towel. Having a large beach towel is a must because I hate getting sand on all my items or not having something dry me off just incase I chose to get a little wet. 





Make sure to pack a sun hat to give extra protection to your hair and face. Look cute at the beach with this small brim straw fedora hat.












Flip flops are always perfect to wear at the beach. The sand can be very hot so protect your cute toes with flip flops. There are so many colors and styles to choose from so they match every swimsuit or coverup. I love the ones pictured here because they scream summer beach trip! A sunset at the beach is the perfect way to end your evening.





What is a trip to the beach without your favorite sunglasses? Find the perfect pair of Summer Sunglasses to complete your beach look.






Bringing sunscreen for the face and body is very important because who wants to buy 5 shades of foundation due to a bad tan? Protect your face from redness, blemishes and breakouts that are caused by being in the sun for long periods of time. (For all of my brownie muffins I recommend a SPF 40 or less due to it can leave an ashy layer on the skin.)












I love this sunscreen lip balm it protects and makes your lips soft. You always hear about sunscreen for your face and body like above but what about your lips!? Lips are as important as other body parts.






Sometimes we can not predict when mother nature will visit. ALWAYS pack tampons or pads so nothing can stop your fun!






If you are accident prone like I am you NEED Neosporin at all times. This travel size is perfect to throw in your beach bag and go.





When you are at the beach you can get dirty or your little ones can touch things that are full of germs. Protect them with these Wet Ones wipes.

Water, water, water and more water is needed to hydrate your body and prevent dihydration. 




I hope you enjoyed my Beach Bag Essentials! Let me know your beach bag essentials below.
