Things Money Can't Buy

Hi Loves!

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend.

Lately I've been trying this thing; evaluating my life and making necessary changes. This meant my the way I thought changed, my goals changed and the company I kept changed as well. I tried to stay as positive as possible since I used to always focus on the negative things in my life. Being negative takes a toll on you eventually! Change was definitely a hard thing for me to do, but soooooo necessary. The things I used to value no longer served any purpose in my life.

One of my number one priorities these days is creating memories that will last a lifetime. My grandmother is one of the 3/9 siblings that are still living. I value spending time with them so much that it's become basically a full-time job for me while going to school. I cherish these moments so much as they grow older, that I make sure that we have some sort of family outing at least once a month. Our favorite thing to do together is attend church or go to brunch.

This Sunday we made reservations to one of our favorite places. Our reservations are usually for 8:30am and we don't leave until 2:30pm! We don't usually eat the entire time, but we enjoy the memories that we are making with multiple generations. No amount of money is worth these memories that we create with the people we don't want to forget.

I figured if I can look good when I go out with my friends, I can make sure that I arrive fashionable with my family as well. Sunday I chose a cute sweater and leopard print heels, simplicity for me!

Valentine's Day Vibes

Hi loves!

Hope you are having a great start to your week! Some are dreading this week as they prepare for Valentine's Day, especially if you are a procrastinator. However, if you're anything like me you LOVE it! No matter how you celebrate it, you should always make sure you are celebrating in style!

Decisions, decisions...Do I want to go for red hot, pretty in pink or flirty floral???

Here's a few inspirations for anyone still trying to find something last minute.

Look #1: Pretty in Pink

For the girly, girl who wants to celebrate in pink, but also wants to keep it simple, any shade of pink in a top is perfect with a pair of black pants!




What I Wore: 
Top Target | Belt Express | Bracelets Aldo (old) | Bag Target | Pants BCBG | Booties Aldo 


Look #2: Flirty Floral 

For the girl who loves a good flower. Some of us enjoy florals so much that we wear them too! Floral prints on a wrap dress always makes a fun, flirty look.







What I Wore: 
Dress Target | Bracelets Aldo (old) | Bag Target | Boots DSW


Look #3: Lady in Red 

For the lady who wants to keep it classic, wear red! Nothing screams love like a nice red dress!  Red is always the solution for anyone looking to feel feminine and sexy.





What I Wore: 
Dress Target | Bag Target | Boots DSW 


Look #4 Red Hot or Hot Pink?

For the girl who can't decide, wear them both! Choose a vibrant shade of red and a vibrant shade of pink and throw them together! Be sure to wear neutrals to tone them down.


Celebrations are always an excuse to wear sequins! I paired this pink number with a red shirt and boom, you get this great match made in heaven!

Look #5 More Wine, Please! 

For the girl who doesn't always go with the "norm," wear your wine! Who said the shade has to be a bold red or a vibrant pink? Normal is boring anyway! Some say the more wine you have, the better your night will be. So why not wear more wine?! I'm one of the "go hard or go home" girls so I would wear this color as a monochrome look: more wine, please! Just add neutrals to complete the look.

Style Crush: Tammy Rivera ~ Green Pleated Skirt

Hi loves!

If you're one to enjoy mixing highs with lows or shopping for closet statement pieces, then you can certainly appreciate Tammy Rivera's style.  Most people think you have to spend money to look good. That's NOT the case at all. Tammy Rivera's style is a friendly reminder that "it's not what you wear, but how you wear it! Own whatever you wear!"


I love a good edgy look that doesn't break your pockets! I loved everything about this bold, effortless look from the metallic fabric to  adding booties to this pleated skirt just screamed edgy!

It was a must that I borrow this look. It's definitely my kind of look, an effortless show-stopper look on a budget! I decided to take my look to church. Therefore, I buttoned up my shirt and tucked it in a little more.

The Yin Yang Look

Hi ladies!

Happy New Year!

Have you ever been in a mood where you picked your lipstick shade before deciding what to wear?? This is totally opposite for me! I'm usually the girl who goes for shoes first before picking any look. Today I went straight for my red lipstick before anything!


The first step to wearing red lips is choosing the correct shade. It will definitely take trial and error, but please don't come out your house looking like you belong in the circus. There are plenty of cosmetic counters willing to assist you with finding the right shade for you! Ladies, I also cannot stress how important it is to keep a mirror with you while wearing red lips. Please don't be the girl with red lipstick on her teeth while showing all 32!

When in doubt, wear black and white with it! Since red lips are classy, bold and sophisticated, it's only right that you go for a yin and yang look; two opposing forces that are complementary. I'm seriously obsessed with red lips, a black and white outfit and silver accessories.





Just like this outfit, you must take the good with the bad in life. Soak up all the good and throw the bad away!

"In the black, there is some white.
In the wrong, there is some right. 
In the dark, there is some light. 
In the blind, there is some sight."

Where the Wild Things Are

Hi loves!

Does anyone love animal print as much as me?! I think NOT! 

I'm super obsessed with animal print, especially leopard. It's one of those things that will NEVER go out of style for me!

Sometimes we have to take our minds where they wild things are to dig a little deeper. I took myself to the jungle with this leopard print shirt that I wore for Thanksgiving.

Wearing this print is a reminder for me to stop looking at my spots as a weakness and use them as my strength. It's also a reminder to fight for everything I want out of life. It's rare that you will find a starving leopard because they put their fear to the side and fight for the food that they want.

"Inside of all of us is hope, fear and adventure; Inside of all of us is a wild thing."

Silver Lining

Hi Loves!

Hope you are having a nice week so far.

This outfit happened to be one of my favorites from last weekend. I actually got out for once and enjoyed myself (THREE NIGHTS IN A ROW)! This is rare for me since I'm such a homebody.

I went for a simple, sexy look and as always I started with the shoes. These silver booties were a MUST for me! There's something about a pop shoe that I CANNOT resist.

Wearing silver always reminds me of "silver linings." Sometimes it's hard to see the good in situations that seem dark. I try my best to always remember that there's a lesson in everything we go through to stay positive in hard times. Try your best to look for the good in the bad.

Remember, "Every cloud has a silver lining."
