    Sophisticated Yet Seductive Scents

    A new week full of possibilities and a new updated look! Happy Monday everyone! I am so excited to be back on my blogging game and decided that the best way to celebrate is through a sweet smelling post, if only you could actually transmit smell through the internet. Coco Chanel was once asked where one should apply perfume and her response was ladylike yet seductive, “where you want to be kissed.” I personally love wearing perfume and always apply two spritz right below my jawbone in the morning and at night and even spritz my clothes once a week. It is the best way to not only smell great…

    A Nasty Gal Kind of World

    Something I absolutely love about fashion is that you can do with it what you want. Styling outfits is more like playing dress up and shouldn’t be taken too seriously, otherwise you miss out on all the fun. One of my FAVORITE stores to shop is Nasty Gal. What I have always loved about Nasty Gal is they carry a variety of different styles and do not follow the herd, if that is what you are looking for then you can still find it on their site. But, if you like to take chances and experiment with different styles and look then Nasty Gal is a must. (I get commission…

    Practice Makes (Almost) Perfect

    They say “practice makes perfect” and while I don’t consider myself to be close to perfect, I will say that practice has helped me get that much closer. Last weekend I decided to embark on a project that has been quite daunting to me for the past few years. When I first started sewing I was very ambitious and would take on crazy sewing projects. Of course, because I was still learning and for the most part learning on my own, many of those sewing projects did not come out great. I never let that stop me.  As time went on I continued to sew but, focused on perfecting what…

    The Benefits of Customization

    Something that I have been completely obsessed with, since learning how to sew, is customizing my clothing to represent my style and personality. One of my favorite ways to do just that is to add patches and embroidery to clothing, such as jackets. I decided to take a camo jacket that I have had for a few years and add a variety of patches to it. Each patch represents me and some patches are handmade by me and a couple that I purchased through an online store called Hellbound. What I really like about this process is that I control what goes on the jacket and where. Aside from that,…

    *I get commison for purchases or clicks made through this post* Some of the most exciting things about a new season are the clothes and the nail polish!

Here are some of my current favorites: 1. Context Nail Lacquer: 102 Slow Down 2. Essie Luxeffects Nail Color: A Cut Above 3. Context Nail Lacquer: 105 Showstopper 4.

    Off The Wall

    Welcome back everyone and happy hump day!!! Alright, so today I wanted to share a wish list with you all that is more of an ode to my style than just a simple wish list. If there is one item, or items, that I am obsessed with… it would have to be sneakers. However, when I go about purchasing sneakers I ALWAYS buy the same two brands. This brand, however, is my all time favorite! Vans are just an over all dope shoe brand created in 1966 in Southern California, my home state! Aside from all of that, their shoes are just comfy, the designs are rad, and there’s a…

    Inspiration Explosion, Pt. 2

    Alright everyone, if y’all tuned in last week and read my Inspiration Explosion post welcome to part two! If you didn’t catch it, well, what are you waiting for?! Anyway, last week I discussed the process and benefits of creative practices like this one. My favorite thing about this practice is that it encourages me to let go of control and not over think the process. One of the hardest things about the creative process is that there is always an underlying habit of comparing what you are doing to what is popular and what works; it is easy to lose sense of who you are and what sets you…
