    Belt Bag

    Belt bags have been a growing trend, if you didn’t already know. Essentially they’re fanny packs, but these chic bags have been renamed “belt bags” and are worn by stylish women you see on the city streets instead of your mom in the 80s and 90s around the amusement parks. I wasn’t sure how I felt about the trend. There are some, mostly designer ones, that look so good on people on social media. But, I wasn’t sure how I’d like the look on myself. Luckily for me, I got to try out the trend without spending any money. Earlier this spring when I placed an order on DSW, they…

    Green & Pink Leopard Dress

    If you guys have been following me for a while then you know that this past year I’ve developed a love for leopard print, which is surprising because I used to hate it. I don’t even know how or when the change occurred, but it did! Although I only have a few leopard print items, I usually go for subtle pieces like the beige sweater I shared over the winter. But when I saw this bright green and pink leopard shift dress I thought it was so fun. Plus, I love the color combination of the kelly green and hot pink. Dress: ASOS | Shoes: Express I love the colors…

  • Short Rib Burgers

    Short Rib Burgers

    The weather is getting warmer and that means grilling weather. Let’s be serious, I eat things from the grill all year long, but the summer is when it happens a lot more often. But since it is getting to be grill weather, I thought I’d share photos of when I made these short rib burgers last summer. The recipe is from The Kitchen and I used the exact recipe. From grinding my own meat with the short ribs and a food processor down to the DijOli sauce – I followed the recipe. So click on the link above for the exact recipe! The only thing I changed was grilling the burgers…

    #fbf Custom Floral Maxi

    Happy Friday! This week didn’t go by too slowly which was nice, but I am feeling so tired and run down. Stressed to the max! So let’s throw it back to a carefree photo from last month when I was visiting family in Georgia. I wore this tiered floral maxi dress that was custom made for me from Eshakti for Easter lunch. This photo pretty much embodies how I want to feel right now! Dress: Eshakti | Wedges: DSW | Sunglasses: Quay Australia Sending easy and carefree vibes your way!

    Restyled: Green Smock Top + Mustard Bow Mules

    Sharing another restyling today. The purpose for this restyling is to show off my new shoes! I’ve been loving the bow mule trend – the kind with the cutout between the bow and the toes. When I saw these mustard colored ones I thought they were so cute. I was a bit hesitant at first to get them because I wasn’t sure if I could match them with a lot of outfits. But, I decided that everyone loves mustard, myself included, and it would actually go with a lot more than at first thought. Plus, it would be a departure from the normal black, grey, taupe, white shoes. So I…

  • Sephora VIB Haul

    Sephora VIB Haul

    Did you take advantage of the Sephora sale last week? Sephora only has these big sales, I think, twice a year so it’s a great time to stock up and/or try out some of the pricier items you’ve had your eye on. I’m a VIB level member so I wanted to make good use of my 15% off and get a few things. My haul this time around is pretty small, but I thought I’d share anyway. I stocked up on a few items and a few of the items are new/kind of new to me (I’ll explain what I mean by that a little further on in this post!)…

    4 Simple Ways To Get The Perfect Smile

    Your smile is one of your most defining features. It’s the first thing that people tend to notice when they look at you and a welcoming smile makes people feel at ease. But if you aren’t happy with your smile and you’ve got some problems with your teeth, you’re more likely to hide your smile. That can often be misinterpreted by people and they may get a bit of a hostile vibe from you if you never smile, even if that isn’t what you intended at all. That’s why it’s so important that you feel confident enough to let your smile shine through. If you aren’t happy with the way…

    Peach Shimmer Ruffle Vents

    A few weeks ago I shared a grey ruffle vent top with a pink heart print. When I bought that top, I also bought it in this light pink/peach shade with little gold shimmer in it. You can’t really see the shimmer in the top in these photos because it is super subtle, but trust me – it’s there! Top: LC Lauren Conrad via Kohl’s | Jeans: Uniqlo | Shoes: Target I wish the shimmer showed up in photos! But like I mentioned above, it is very subtle and it’s part of the material – it’s not like glittery or on top of the fabric. I paired this top with…

    Using Excel’s Slicer Tool

    When Microsoft Excel first came onto the scene one of the newest and most talked about features was the slicer tool. What are slicers? Essentially they allow you easily filter through any data contained in a pivot table report. The difference between this and other tools of its kind before is the fact that it is really easy to use. All you utilise is a set of buttons. You won’t have to search through a drop-down menu list until you find the items you wish to filter as you would have previously. So, how do you put this tool into use when using a Microsoft Excel pivot table?  …
