April Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month I thought it would be the perfect time to do my April favorites. I have a pretty good mix this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my April BoxyCharm box, and if you haven’t read that I’ll link it below. My first Boxy favorite is the Eloise Beauty Get Gleaming Body Glow in Champagne Rich. This is a lightweight, non sticky luminizer for face and body. This says it has a transfer proof formula and it appears to be very buildable, so you could build it up for your desired glow. Based on the swatch and the little test I did, it’s super pretty and definitely something I’m going to be using a lot during the summer months.

My last Boxy favorite is the Natasha Denona Ayana palette. This is a 5 pan, cool toned palette made exclusively for BoxyCharm and it has 3 mattes and 2 shimmers. 

 

I’ve done one look with this palette since I’ve had it and I think this palette is a classic example of how great ND shadows are. The formulation is great, the mattes are smooth and blend out nicely, the shimmers are creamy and everything is really pigmented. If you’re looking to try out Natasha Denona shadows and don’t want to commit to one of the larger palettes, I definitely recommend the smaller 5 pan palettes. 

And my last beauty favorite is the ColourPop Fresh Cut BFF Creme Gel Liner Kit. I did a whole post about these, so I’ll link that below as well. I really like this kit. I like the range of colors, they’re super long lasting and they’re comfortable to put in the waterline. If you’re looking for a set of spring colored eyeliners, I definitely recommend this one. 

Moving on, I have a food favorite and it’s the Popcorners chips. These are triangle shaped popcorn chips and they’re delicious. They have a few flavors but I’ve tried the Sea Salt and Kettle Corn and I would recommend both. What I like about these is they’re light and a lot less messy than eating from a bowl of popcorn. Definitely a great snack. 

Moving on, I have a couple of fashion favorites. I’ve been doing a little bit of online shopping recently with a focus on things for spring and summer, and so far I’ve picked up some really cute pieces. The first is a white tank top from Macy’s. I like this because the material is lightweight, but it’s not totally see through. It has a thicker strap, a scoop neck, a cute little pocket on the left side and it ties at the bottom. 

My second fashion favorite is a dress from Nordstrom. I’m always trying to add more spring and summer dresses to my wardrobe and when I came across this one I thought it was super cute. It’s coral with a white floral print, spaghetti straps, a ruffle at the top and a ruffled bottom. Once I wear it I’ll post pictures on my social media. 

And my last favorite is a music favorite and this time it’s a song. So a little bit of background, the US Navy Blue Angels just started their 2021 show season and the airshow they were at did a live stream of the whole weekend, and one of the things that I’m always interested in is the music they pick for the show and how the songs go with each maneuver. I think that they have a pretty good song list, some I like more than others, and I know that it might change as the season goes on. But there were a few songs in particular that stuck out to me and one of them is American Style by Old Dominion. Not only do I think this is a really fun song, but they use it towards the end of the show when they’re in the Delta and I think it’s super fitting. Definitely a song I would recommend listening to if you haven’t. 

That about wraps it up for this post, if we have any of the same favorites let me know and if not I’d love to know what your April favorites were. 

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great April :).

March Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month, I thought that today would be the perfect day to do my March favorites. I have a pretty good and fun mix of favorites this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my March BoxyCharm box, and if you haven’t read that post I’ll link it down below. My first Boxy favorite is the Too Faced Damn Girl Mascara. This is one of those holy grail makeup items for me, it has a really nice and creamy formula that doesn’t smudge, run, transfer or flake. The brush is on the fluffier side and it really does a great job of coating all of your lashes. Plus you get a ton of volume and length without your lashes feeling heavy. This is a mascara I always recommend.

IMG_7545

IMG_7547

My next favorite is the Lime Crime Venus 3 Eyeshadow Palette. I wanted this palette when I saw the spoilers for the box and I’m so happy that I got it. This is an 8 pan palette with a shade range of lilac, rose gold, mauve and brown. There are also five different finishes, matte, foil, sparkly matte, sparkly metallic and metallic. I’ve been using this palette quite a bit and I have a 3 recent looks post coming on it. I don’t want to give away too much of my thoughts on it right now, but I will say that I definitely recommend giving this palette a try. 

IMG_7542

IMG_7544

IMG_7554

IMG_7555

And my last beauty favorite is the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray. This is a product that I was slightly unsure about when I saw it because I really don’t like the essence of rose in beauty and skincare products, but I do love a good setting spray. After a few times of using it I can tell you that I do really like it. Once you spray it the smell dissipates pretty quickly and what you’re left with is makeup that it locked into place for up to 16 hours and won’t smudge. 

IMG_7550

Moving on to more random favorites, I first have a fashion favorite and it’s a pair of shoes. It’s not just any pair of shoes though, these are the Hoka One One Cavu 3’s. I’ve been looking for a good workout/running shoe for a long time and hands down these are the best ones I’ve tried. They’re comfortable, supportive and they don’t give me shin splints, which is huge. These are a little more expensive, but the quality and comfort is worth every penny. I also have to thank Tony Kanaan for recommending Hoka, because I might not have found them otherwise. 

IMG_7451

IMG_7538

My next favorite is a candy favorite and it’s the Hershey’s Cookies and Creme bar. Cookies and creme is one of my favorite flavor combos, and I’ve always liked the Hershey bars but they’ve been revamped and now have more cookie pieces which make it that much better. Definitely recommend.

IMG_7558 

My second to last favorite is a racing favorite and it’s an event that took place last weekend, Funny Car Chaos. I watched the live stream of the race and it was so fun to see so many Funny Cars show up to qualify and race, every round was great, the races were close and it was a great event to watch. 

And my last favorite is a music favorite. This month it’s Eric Clapton, in March I spend a lot of time listening to Eric because it’s his birthday month and while I listen to him regularly in general, but it’s definitely more in March. 

That abut wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites let me know and if not I’d love to know what your March favorites were. 

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great March :).

February Favorites

Hi everyone,

Happy Friday! As it’s the end of the month, I thought that it would be the perfect time do my February favorites. I have a good and fun mix this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a few favorites from my February BoxyCharm box, and if you haven’t read that I’ll link it down below. My first Boxy favorite is the Ace Beaute Nostalgia palette. This is a 15 pan palette, you get a mix of mattes and metallics and the color range is great. I’m having a lot of fun with this palette, all of the shadows are nicely pigmented, you get a great color payoff and they blend really nicely. I definitely recommend this if you want a fun palette.

IMG_7323

IMG_7324

IMG_7325

My next Boxy favorite is the Wander Beauty Double Date Lip and Cheek. This is a double layer balm that can be used on the lips and the cheeks. The first layer is a nice light pink that builds really nicely and blends well and that is in the shade Rendezvous. The second layer is a shimmer free balm that gives a nice glow and hydration and that is in the shade Swipe. You also get a little mirror on the second layer, making this perfect to throw in your bag. I personally like this more for the lips than the cheeks, but from when I tested it on the cheeks it did look and feel nice. 

IMG_7327

IMG_7328

IMG_7329

My second to last beauty favorite and last Boxy favorite is the Saint Luxe Beauty Limited Edition Liner Duo. This is a set of two brown toned lip liners, the first Love Letter, is what I would call a lighter cinnamon brown and the second, Secret Admirer, is a darker more chocolate brown. These are really smooth and creamy when you apply them and they’re long wearing. Definitely recommend if you’re looking for brown liners. 

IMG_7330

IMG_7331

IMG_7333

And my last beauty favorite is my Valentine’s Day makeup look. I did a post all about this look, how I did it and the looks I did leading up to Valentine’s Day, which I’ll link below. I like this look a lot, it’s bright and fun and I’m really happy with how it turned out. 

IMG_7389

Moving on I have a fashion favorite, and it’s my Valentine’s Day outfit. I usually like to wear something in some shade of pink, this year it was really cold and snowy, so I thought this was the perfect time to wear the cropped sweater I got for Christmas. I think it’s adorable and it paired well with the makeup look I did. 

IMG_7369

My next favorite is weather favorite and it’s the snow we got. I always want snow during the winter months and we don’t always get it, but we did for a couple days and it was really fun. 

IMG_7357

Moving on I have a food favorite and it’s this Honey Mustard Snack Mix from Costco. This has five different things in it, honey mustard and onion pretzel pieces, seasoned almond poppers, honey roasted sesame sticks, honey roasted almond splits and savory chickpeas. These are so, so good, the pretzel pieces are my favorite. I definitely recommend these if you’re looking for a good snack. 

IMG_7455

And my last favorite is a music favorite. This month I had a little playlist of love songs and such for Valentine’s Day and I really liked it. It had Take That, Eric Clapton, The Doobie Brothers, Little Mix and more. I think themed playlists are so fun, and if it’s not something you do already, I would recommend it. 

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites let me know and if not I’d love to know what your February favorites were. 

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great February :).

January Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month I thought it would be the perfect time to do my January favorites. This month was busy, but I still managed to get a good group of favorites together.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my January BoxyCharm box and I’ll link that post down below if you haven’t read it yet. My first Boxy favorite is the Ace Beaute Bronzed In Paradise Palette. This has four bronzers in rectangular pans and they range from light to dark browns. They’re very buildable and blendable and if you’re looking for a face palette, I definitely recommend giving this one a try.

IMG_7184

IMG_7185

IMG_7186

IMG_7188

My last Boxy favorite is the Bali Balm Sweet Orange & Coconut Lip Balm. This smells so good. It has sweet orange and coconut essential oils, Vitamin C which evens skin tone and the coconut moisturizes and makes your lips really soft and supple. This is great for the winter months because the cold really can chap your lips, but this would be great year round.

IMG_7187

My second to last beauty favorite is the KVD Go Big Or Go Home Volumizing Mascara in Trooper. This is a long wearing, smudge resistant mascara that really does live up to it’s name and gives pretty extreme volume. This has a pretty decent wand and it does coat all of your lashes. I like this mascara a lot more than I thought, and I definitely recommend it. 

IMG_7045

My last beauty favorite is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Pro Pigment Collection Vault. I love these palettes, they each have nine shadows and there’s so much versatility within them. I’m going to do a recent looks post about each palette, but I’m having a lot of fun with them and I 100% recommend them. 

IMG_7077

Moving on, I have a couple of fashion favorites. The first is my blue light glasses. I’ve been wanting a pair of blue light glasses for a while and now that I have them I’m so happy. Not only are they super cute, but I have definitely been able to tell a difference since I’ve been wearing them. These are from Zenni Optical and if you’re looking for a pair of blue light or glasses in general, I would check out Zenni because they have super reasonable prices. 

IMG_7034

My next fashion favorite is some new Indianapolis Motor Speedway gear. I wanted something new for the upcoming IndyCar season and I didn’t have anything to rep IMS, so I got a hoodie that is a light/medium blue and says ‘Indianapolis Motor Speedway’ in white and red glitter with the logo under it. 

IMG_7210

The second thing I got is a v neck t shirt that says ‘W. 16th St’ in white with the logo on the end and it’s shaped like a street sign. 

IMG_7228

My next favorite is my birthday. This year was definitely different than other birthdays I’ve had and even what I was wanting to do, but my family and friends made a great birthday weekend for me and it was a lot of fun. 

My second to last favorite is my new gaming chair. I’ve wanted and needed a new chair for a while so I asked around and Tony Kanaan recommended Maingear, so I looked around their website and found one that I wanted. The chair that I went with is the Forma R in white. This is a pricier chair, but the quality you get is definitely worth it. It’s pretty much broken in now and is super comfortable. It comes with a pillow, which is incredibly soft, and I use it when I’m gaming at night and talking to friends. 

IMG_7161

IMG_7160

My last favorite is a music favorite and it’s my 2020 Spotify Wrapped playlist. This was my December music favorite, but I’m still loving it because it has a great mix of music. 

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites let me know and if not I’d love to know what your January favorites were. 

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great January :).

December Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month, I thought it would be the perfect time to do my December favorites. This month as been really busy, but I still managed to find a good group of favorites.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of BoxyCharm favorites, I’ll link that post down below if you haven’t read it. My first Boxy favorite is the Tarte Maneater mascara. I was a little but unsure about this mascara when I opened it because it has a spiky plastic brush and those tend to not be my favorite, but I really like this one. It says that the wand is custom made and it has over 500 bristles to coat every lash, and I feel like it does. The formula is nice and buildable and I haven’t experienced any clumping or transferring. Definitely recommend giving this mascara a try if you want your lashes to stand out.

IMG_6809

IMG_6810

My next beauty favorite is the Ofra Cosmetics Pressed Banana Brightening Powder. This does have a light banana scent, reminds me of the banana flavored Laffy Taffy. I really like this powder, I use it to set my foundation/concealer and brighten the under eye area. 

IMG_6811

IMG_6812

IMG_6813

And my last beauty favorite is the MAC Matte Lipstick in 612, Russian Red. This is a super pigmented lipstick and it’s a nice deeper red, but it’s not too deep. 

IMG_6814

IMG_6815

IMG_6818

Moving on to more random things, I have a fashion favorite and it’s a pair of camo leggings. I was doing some last minute Christmas shopping online and I came across these leggings. I’m of the school of thought that you can never have too many pairs of leggings and I didn’t actually have any camo ones prior to this, so I had to pick these up. They’re super comfy and they fit great. 

IMG_6899

And my last couple of favorites are music favorites. The first is my new Epiphone Les Paul Acoustic-Electric Concert Ukulele. Since I tuned this I’ve been playing around with it and I’m loving it. Not only is it beautiful, but it sounds incredible. I can’t wait to get an amp so I can see what it sounds like electrically. 

IMG_6923

My second music favorite is my 2020 Spotify Wrapped playlist. This has some of my favorites on it and I’ve been playing it quite a bit over the past couple weeks, it’s a great mix of music. 

That about wraps it up for this post, I want to thank everyone for reading, following, commenting and everything else. It means a lot and I always appreciate it. 

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great December :).

ShoeDazzle Haul

Hi everyone,

Happy Friday! I had a little shop on ShoeDazzle recently and now that everything had been delivered, I thought it would be a fun thing to have a look through. That being said, let’s get into it.

So I ended up ordering two pairs, one of which is a pair of boots. I will say that both these and the boots worried me when I first saw the boxes because they look a bit like they’ve been karate chopped, but both pairs are in perfect condition. The first one I found when I was looking for something fun and summery and they’re the You Got This Heeled Sandal in White. This shoe when I bought it at least, was available in a couple different colors/finishes. I went with white because I don’t actually have a white heeled sandal in my shoe closet and they’ll go with so many different outfits. I did try these on and have a little walk around, they fit great and are pretty comfortable. These have a platform and the heel itself is a bit high, but it’s a chunky heel so they feel quite sturdy.

IMG_5588

I really like that these have the silver zipper down the middle in addition to the silver buckles on the side.

IMG_5589

The second pair I picked up is the Moto Loco Buckled Stiletto Boot in Black. This boot does come in blue and white as well and this is from the ShoeDazzle x Erika Jayne collaboration. These are over the knee boots and I love a good over the knee boot. These have some nice stitched detail on the front and have gold hardware on the outside in the form of a gold zipper and gold buckles. One thing that I really appreciate is the fact that these have a little bit of tread on the bottom, even though I’ve been wearing heels for many years it’s always nice to have an extra bit of stability when you’re walking. Like with the sandals, I put these on and had a little walk around and they appear to be pretty comfortable as well.

IMG_5590

IMG_5591

That about wraps it up for this post, let know which of these is your favorite and if you’ve made a ShoeDazzle purchase recently I’d love to know what you bought.

Until next time, have fun shopping and you have never have too many pairs of shoes :).

What I Got For Christmas 2019

Hi everyone,

Today I thought it would be fun to share with you guys what I got for Christmas. I do want to say that I’m in no way trying to brag, I’m one of those people that enjoy reading and watching this type of post. This year I didn’t have a real list of things I wanted, so I was happily surprised by a few of these gifts.

The first thing we have is what was in my stocking. Besides my favorite candy, there was a Bath and Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar mist and body lotion. It’s my favorite scent from Bath and Body Works. Along with that there was a little flashlight, I love little practical things like this and you can never have too many flashlights. The last two things that were in my stocking were a mini Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Loose Setting Powder infused with peach and sweet fig milk and the Peach Kiss Lipstick in Sex On The Peach.

WIGC1

I used the setting powder yesterday and today and I really like it. Added bonus, it smells like peaches. The lipstick also smells like peaches and it’s a comfort matte, long wearing and also infused with peach and sweet fig milk. Too Faced lipsticks are always really pigmented and this one is no different. I believe there are 13 shades of the Peach Kiss Lipsticks and I’m definitely going to be purchasing a few more.

WIGC2

WIGC3

Continuing on with the beauty theme, the first thing I unwrapped was the Too Faced Christmas Cookie House Party set. I was honestly so, so shocked to see this because I had mentioned it in a text to my mom like right after it came out then didn’t say anything after. I was considering buying this for myself as a Christmas gift but it was sold out on Sephora and Too Faced when I looked but for whatever reason I didn’t check at my local Sephora and they had a couple left which I’m super happy about. I’m going to be doing a separate post on this, so I’m not going to get into it too much, but I will say that yesterday I wore a couple of the shadows and I’m really happy with them. It was a good makeup day.

WIGC14

WIGC15

The second beauty item I got was the Sephora Collection Frosted Kisses Lip Stories Lipstick Set. This is also going to get it’s own post, but I will say that I’ve swatched all of these, wore one on Christmas Day and I’m wearing one now. I’m really liking them and I recommend them.

WIGC13

Next up we have a fashion item and it’s this light powder pink shoulder bag from H&M. I have a few different handbags and clutches but nothing like this. Like I said this is a light powder pink suede with silver hardware and leathery handles. It has a snap closure, one medium sized pocket on the very front, the main compartment and another pocket inside the main. You can adjust the way you wear it, so if the handles are the same length then it’s a shoulder bag, but if you stretch it out you can wear it like a crossbody. I didn’t realize when I was taking the pictures that it was a little crooked but that’s because of the pull on the door and not that bag.

WIGC9

WIGC10

WIGC11

WIGC12

Moving on we have a couple of practical things. The first is a 2020 Erin Condren Planner. I got my first Erin Condren Planner last Christmas and it was an absolute game changer, so I knew I had to have one for the new year. This will be getting it’s own post, but I did go for a different pattern, different colors and I put my first and middle name on it.

WIGC6

WIGC7

The second practical gift I got was a calendar. I have a couple of calendars that I use for different things and sometimes they’re different sizes but this one is my main calendar. There are two or three themes I typically go for when it comes to calendars, this one is jet themed. And has some great pictures.

WIGC4

WIGC5

And the last thing we have is music related, and it’s the Doobie Brothers Live From The Beacon Theatre Blu-Ray and CD Set. I talked about this when it came out, I have it on my phone and they showed a little bit of it on PBS. I like to have a physical copy of music, hence the CD Set and if I can help it I buy all discs in Blu-Ray. So I’m excited to have a music night and watch the full concert.

WIGC8

That about wraps it up for this post, I did also receive some socks, because it’s not Christmas if you don’t get socks, and a mug but it’s currently in the dishwasher because I used it this morning.

Until next time, enjoy your gifts and I hope you all had an amazing Christmas :).

April Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the last day of April, I thought today would be the perfect day to do my favorites. I think that I have a pretty good mix this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my April Sephora Play Box, I’ll leave a link to that down below if you haven’t read it. The first is the Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream. I’ve been using an eye cream that I really liked but I was interested by this because I’m a big Clinique fan. And since I started using it I’ve not been disappointed. It hydrates, brightens and I feel like I look more refreshed. So this now has a permanent spot in my skincare cabinet.

APB9

My second Sephora Play favorite is the Make Up For Ever Step 1 Skin Equalizer Primer in Smoothing Primer. I really like this, it smells good and it’s lightweight. It also really locks in my makeup and when I put it on I feel like it really gives me an extra nice surface to work with. If you’re looking for a new primer I would say definitely check this one out.

APB7

My last Sephora Play favorite is the Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Treatment in Dream. I put this on before I go to bed and the next morning I can see/feel the difference. My lips are very moisturized and they have a slight plump to them. This also smells really good and there’s a slight pink tint to it so if you wanted to wear this during the day you’d get a little color.

APB4

APB5

APB6

And my last beauty favorite is hairstyle. I got bored a few weeks ago and wanted to change up my bun a little so after I pulled my hair into a high ponytail I decided to braid it then shape it into the bun and I’m really happy with how it turned out. APRF3

APRF2

Next I have a fashion favorite and it’s this off the shoulder light blue top with little flowers on the sleeves from H&M. I bought this a little while and hadn’t had a chance to wear it yet, so when Easter came around I figured it was a good time. And I finished this look with a pair of white wedges. I don’t know if you can still get this top but they have quite a few other off the shoulder options.

APRF6

Moving on I have a food favorite and it’s Meiji Hello Panda cookies. I was at the grocery store a few weeks ago in the Asian food section looking for Pocky and I saw these next to it on the shelf. And they’re little cream filled cookies that are shaped like pandas and have pandas doing various activities on them. I bought them in strawberry and in the store they also had chocolate, which I want to try and I believe there are other flavors you can get online. But they’re really good and a fun little snack.

APRF4

APRF5

My second to last favorite is a puzzle I did at the beginning of the month. You guys know how much I love puzzles. This one is 1,000 pieces and it took me a little longer to complete than the last one I did but most of the pieces are similar color, which in the grand scheme of things I appreciate. But this is a Thomas Kinkade and it’s a winter scene. Thomas Kinkade puzzles are always so pretty and I have a few sitting in my Amazon cart right now.

APRF1

And my last favorite is a music favorite. It’s the Doobie Brothers Brotherhood album. This album falls into that time period of the band’s music that I didn’t previously know a lot about and I only recently got into. And let me tell you, this album in my opinion, is super underrated. I mean top to bottom it’s full of fantastic, well written, well produced songs. If you haven’t ever listened to it, I would 100% recommend doing so.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites let me know and if not I’d love to know what you favorites were.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great April :).

March Favorites

Hi everyone,

Happy Friday! Today, as it’s the end of the month, I thought I would do my March Favorites. I have a pretty good mix this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my March Sephora Play Box. If you haven’t read that there will be a link down below. My first Sephora Play favorite is the Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo. I’ve mentioned a few times that Amika is one of my favorite brands when it comes to hair products and this dry shampoo didn’t disappoint. It not only made my hair feel refreshed but it was soft and it gave me nice volume. And this didn’t leave any residue like some dry shampoos can.

MRSP5

My next favorite is the Nars Bronzing Powder in Laguna. I knew as soon as I swatched this I would love it and I have been. I’ve been using this most days since I got it and now it’s got a permanent spot in my makeup bag. It’s got a great glow when the light hits it, the amount of sparkle is perfect and I love the color. It’s perfect for spring/summer and like I thought originally, very buildable. If you haven’t checked out Nars Bronzers I definitely recommend doing so.

MRSP8

MRSP7

MRSP6

My last Sephora Play favorite is the Maison Margiela Replica By The Fireplace fragrance. This not only smells good but it wears really well. When I first smelled it I was immediately brought to sitting around the fire and roasting marshmallows with friends. It’s woody and spicy but also sweet and vanillay. This is a fragrance that you can definitely wear all year long because it’s so well balanced.

My last beauty favorite is my makeup look from St. Patrick’s Day. I wanted to do something fun and festive but I don’t have a lot of green eyeshadow, I am going to order the ColourPop Just My Luck Palette though. So I did a gold eye, I used three golds, blended for 100 years until I liked it, and did an emerald shade on my lower lash line. I’m overall really happy with how it came out.

Moving on, I have a fashion favorite and that is the Crystabel Sneakers from JustFab. I was browsing through their website recently and found myself looking at sneakers which is something I don’t have a lot of. One thing I’m never opposed to is expanding my shoe collection. I was looking at a few different pairs, but I feel in love with these and because I’m a popular size, I bought them immediately. They come in three different colors, white, black and rose gold and I bought the rose gold. They have white stars, white on the back and white laces. I’ve worn these once since getting them and not only are they super comfortable, but they go with pretty much everything.

I have two kind of random favorites, the first is puzzles. I’ve always loved doing puzzles, I grew up doing them and recently I got back into it. I completed this puzzle in a few days, mostly working on it before I went to bed, and I was so happy when it was done. This is a 1,000 piece Dowdle Folk Art London puzzle and every time I looked at it I discovered something new. I really like the style of the Dowdle Folk Art puzzles, so I’m going to look and see what else they have.

MRF1

My next kind of random favorite is baseball. Yesterday was Opening Day and baseball is officially back. The Mariners had a little bit of a different start because they played their first two official games in Japan, which was cool. But they were able to start this season at home yesterday and win! Which was super exciting and really fun. This year it’s basically a whole new team, but I’m excited to see how this season is going to play out.

And my last favorite is a music favorite. It’s Jeff Lynne’s ELO Alone in the Universe album. This isn’t an album that I listened to a lot when it came out, but recently Spotify has been playing me a lot of the songs and I’ve really been enjoying it. Top to bottom it’s a great album, I don’t think I could pick one song that’s my favorite but When I Was A Boy and All My Life have been playing a lot. If you haven’t heard it, I would definitely recommend giving it a listen.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites this month let me know and if not I’d love to know what your favorites were.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great March :).

Blogmas Day Eight: Winter Fashion

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Eight! Today I’m going to be talking about winter fashion. The weather around here has been pretty cold and recently there was a stretch of about a week/week and a half where it was absolutely freezing. So I wanted to share with you guys an example of how I’ve been dressing this winter. I have four different looks, so let’s get into it.

The first is for the days when it’s absolutely freezing and bundling up is the only option.

WF1

Here I’ve gone for a hat, scarf (which is tucked into my jacket), winter jacket (this jacket is a bomber style jacket and I love that it keeps me so warm but isn’t too bulky) and warm boots. Normally I’ll wear a pair of gloves, either black or silver, but I keep those in my handbag all winter anyway.

This second look is for those days when it’s a little bit cold but not so much that you need a massive jacket. And really if you wanted to not wear a massive jacket during winter you probably could get away with it with the right layers.

WF3

So I went with a long sleeve gray sweater, it’s not a super thick material so you can wear it for multiple seasons and not just winter. Then I have a black vest with a faux fur collar, this vest is a little bit puffy so it keeps you warm. And I paired it with a these over the knee boots from JustFab. These are the Lyrica boots in black and they’re actually quite comfortable. JustFab and ShoeDazzle are two of my favorite places to shop for boots because they have such a great selection, so I’ll leave some links down below.

My third look is the cozy look. For the time in the day/weekend when you want to get cozy and just chill.

WF2

This one is pretty basic. I’ll go for a sweatshirt, the one I choose depends on how cold I am because they’re all vary in thickness. A pair of leggings, again, how cold I am will depend on the length of the leggings. And my slippers, these are from Deerfoam and they’re the best, so warm and comfy. Plus they have tread on the bottom so I can wear them outside if I need to without worrying about ruining them.

And my last winter look is the dressed up look. This or a version of this is what I’ll be wearing to Christmas parties/on Christmas Eve this year.

WF4

I love this outfit. I’m calling this a sweater dress, on me it’s long enough to be, and it’s a really nice dark blue with gold and cowl neck with three gold buttons. It’s so soft and keeps me warm. I paired that with some black leggings that have a leather strip down the side and a pair of peep toe pumps that are embellished with little gems. Definitely one of my favorite pairs of heels, they add a little extra to any outfit.

That about wraps it up for this post, what are your fashion go-tos during winter?

Until next time, have fun planning your outfits and stay warm this winter :).
