    Restyled: Blue Velvet Pleated Skirt

    When I had my photoshoot with Lauren at the beginning of the month this outfit was not one of the original outfits I picked out. Just days before the photoshoot I switched out my more vibrant, hot weather outfit, for this white sleeveless top and blue velvet pleated skirt because the weather was supposed to be cool and cloudy that day. As with all my shoots with Lauren, the weather ended up being hotter and sunnier than forecasted (not complaining!). Anyway, I’ve worn this blue velvet pleated skirt on here before but that was with a long sleeve white tee so definitely more of a cool weather look. This time I styled…

    Geo Pleated Henley Dress

    I love outfits that look like two pieces but are one. Whether it be a layered top, a dress, a romper – you name it. Anything that looks like you actually layered something together to make a great outfit, but you really did no work at all because it’s one piece is a winner in my book. I love this dress with the henley style blouse on top connected to a geo printed pleated skirt. A few people asked me if it was a top tucked in to a blouse and I excitedly told them it was a dress! The elastic waist with drawstring made the already comfortable dress even…

    Book Review: Wildchilds

    This book review is long overdue. I was sent this book months ago, but it got kind of lost amidst the sea of books I have to read. But when I finally started it I was hooked and tried to fit in time to read whenever I could. Wildchilds by Eugenia Melian follows Iris, a former model, as she copes with the death of her ex-boyfriend and father of her teenage daughter and all the memories his death brings. She is left his estate which includes his collection of work – Gus, her ex, was a famed photographer – but she must travel back to Paris to find and recover it all.…

    Spicy Peanut Tofu Stir Fry

    When I saw this Spicy Peanut Tofu Stir fry recipe I thought it looked so good! And it is. I’ve made it a few times before and when I took these photos I added chicken in. The original recipe is vegetarian, but as I said I added chicken so you can easily add meat or leave it out. I followed the recipe, except for the adding chicken part, so you can click on the link above for the exact measurements and stuff. First, I cut the tofu into large cubes and cut up an onion and baby bella mushrooms. Then, I made the sauce which is made from minced garlic, grated…

    Embroidered Cactus

    I’m really in to sweaters with shorts lately. I don’t know where this love for the look came from, but I’m all about it these days. I pre-ordered this embroidered cacti drop shoulder, lightweight sweater a while ago and was so excited when it came in. It’s super lightweight so no worries about it being warm out. So lightweight that it’s almost see-through in fact. The embroidered cactus is thick and almost feels like a patch of yarn. There are also little details in the cacti to give it dimension and some more interest. The sweater has good length, so you can wear it during the cooler weather with leggings…

    Fresh – Sugar Strawberry Exfoliating Face Wash

    I’ve been trying a lot of exfoliating products lately, and that’s fine with me because I need to slough off some of this winter dullness! I was excited to receive this new Sugar Strawberry Exfoliating Face Wash from Fresh to try out. They also sent me their popular Soy Face Cleanser, which I have used before and loved. Fruit scented things always make me wary because they can oftentimes be way too sweet smelling. I’m happy to say that this Strawberry Exfoliating Face Wash is not too sweet smelling at all. The face wash is a brown-ish color and when you start massaging it on your face it is gritty. A very…

    Love Love Love Tee

    I love love love this tee. Too much? I really do love this navy blue tee with embroidered Love Love Love on it in rainbow colors. Simple and fun! I wore the tee with cropped leggings for a day out and about over the weekend. Top: LC Lauren Conrad via Kohl’s | Leggings: LC Lauren Conrad via Kohl’s | Sandals: Target I love that the “love” text is rainbow colored, but muted so it’s very wearable, classic, and simple. I also love that it’s embroidered because it gives it a nicer look than print. Hope you love this as much as I do!

    Restyled: Lace Henley + Bright Necklaces

    Another restyling today! I didn’t plan these restyling posts out very well since they’re so close together, but oh well. The last time I shared this black lace henley blouse was a few years ago so it’s been a while. I also wore it with denim shorts last time I wore it on here, but I wore it untucked and with a bright colored camisole underneath. This time I wore a strapless bra so no cami underneath and front tucked it. I also added 2 brightly colored necklaces. The long necklace is a multi-strand necklace with different colors and the other, shorter necklace is a gold rainbow hued pendant. Top:…

    Three Tips to Get Your Creative Journal Started

    What’s the difference between a ‘creative journal’ and a regular journal? While your good old-fashioned journal comes with lined paper for a more traditional pen-to-paper approach, creative journals are usually composed of blank pages that are suitable for other creative media, such as illustrations, process-sketches, figurative or surreal paintings, and so much more.   There is also an unwritten difference between the more traditional journal format and a creative journal. When it comes to the latter, you’re not necessarily sitting down every day to record what happened. It’s more about self-expression and letting your creativity guide you. The idea is to express yourself freely, without worrying about what people will…
