Hi loves!

Finals have arrived and I am in complete study mode! I have two finals this week and two more next Wednesday. Please send positive energy my way as I prepare for my finals! I’ll talk to you all next week!

Remember this…

Always do what you love, because only you can define your happiness!



The midi dress…

Hi loves!

I absolutely love midi dresses, but I hadn’t been able to find one that fitted me the way I wanted it to. Until a few months ago when I was browsing around in Target as usual and I spotted a super cute one and I had to try it on. I tried it on and it fitted me perfectly! I then went on to do my happy dance in the dressing room! Ladies, I know you do that same thing when you’re trying on clothes too! I am so bummed that it only came in one color, because I would have definitely purchased more than one. It was only $12 too!

The baseball game look…

Hi loves!

Going to see one any of your favorite professional sports teams play is always exciting! A great way to get in the spirit of showing your favorite team some love is to wear amazing apparel. However, sometimes finding those perfect items can be a little hard, but have no fear because Fanatics has you covered! Fanatics is a leading online retailer of officially licensed sports merchandise like baseball hats and provides the ultimate shopping experience to sports fans. Be sure to check them out!

Personally if I were going to a baseball game I would keep it comfortable and cute! I decided to style the Chicago Cubs Hat even though I am a fan of the New York Yankees! I am a huge fan of the denim on denim trend, so it was only right that I incorporated that into this look. It also went well with the colors of the hat and the sassy red flats completed the entire look!

Be sure to check out Fanatics for all of your sports apparel needs!

Busy week…

Hi loves!

I’ve been MIA all this week due to me getting in the groove of my new job and being swamped with work being that my semester is ending in three weeks. Ya’ll. I am exhausted! I doubt that I will be getting much sleep during these next few weeks, because my days will consist of working and studying for my finals! I might not be blogging as much until my semester is over, but when I do get any free time I will make sure that I have a post for you all. Side note: I wore some super cute outfits this week, but I just didn’t have any time to capture them. However, that just means that I will totally be wearing them again, so that I can share them with you all (LOL)! 

I hope that you have a fabulous weekend!

Saturday’s look…

I started my new job at Target on Saturday! My first day went really well and I am certain that I  am going to like working there. Target also happens to be my favorite store, so I may or may not be spending more of my money in there (LOL)!

After work my mom and I spent the rest of the day doing some shopping. I decided to wear one of my favorite tunics and I paired it with jeans. It was cute, comfortable, and perfect for the nice weather.

It is what it is…


I debated on whether or not I was going to share this post several times. I am a very private person and I do not share many things with a lot of people. That might sound weird, because I am always sharing with you all. However, I am only willing to share certain things or aspects of my life. So, basically I am a private-open person if that makes any sense at all (LOL)!


I am thrilled to be going on a cruise to the Bahamas in five weeks! So, last summer once I found out that I was going I had this new plan of eating right and working out regularly. Guess what? That did not happen at all.

When my grandmother passed away six months ago I had a rough time dealing with it. I was a mess. Some days I would barely eat and when I did eat I was eating very unhealthy food. I also had a rough time ending my semester, because I was struggling with two of my classes. I did not finish out the semester as strong as I usually would have, but I passed all of my classes. However, all of that resulted in me gaining some weight.

Recently, as I was preparing my outfits and purchasing bathing suits for my cruise I got a little upset with myself. I did not lose weight like I had planned to and that left me in a funk for a few days.

Guess what? It is what it is! I don’t care! I’m going to have an amazing time in the Bahamas and I’ll be looking fabulous while I’m there! I am still focused on losing weight, but I will not sulk or be upset with myself just because I am not at my ideal size. It will happen and I am going to be patient with myself.

You will have moments in life where you’ll be disappointed with yourself for whatever reasons. Of  course we all want to change certain things, but everything won’t get done exactly when we want it to. Be patient, pace yourself, and things will happen when they are supposed to. We have the power to change whatever we want to in our lives, but remember that everything happens with time. Be in the moment and enjoy life for what it is at the time!


Side note: I am still dealing with the death of my grandmother. Losing a loved one is hard. I have good and bad days. I was never a huge crier and now I cry all the time, because I miss her so much. I’ll never get over losing her, but I know that its going to take time. I am grateful for all of the amazing memories that I have of her.

Lesson #259: Recycle the happy.

Pure greatness once again from my lovely friend Mia!

Growing up my parents always told me that kind words go a long way, because you never know how your words can impact someone’s day. That has always stuck with me!

A Year of Lessons.


Never forfeit a chance to tell someone how special they are to you, or how much they mean to you, or how much you love them.

People tend to reserve these moments for when someone has done something, or when they need something. People save their gratefulness and appreciation and praise for big moments, when really, it’s the small ones that possibly can mean the most.

Not just to you—but to them as well.

I have a new rule.

If someone does something that makes you happy, or says something that really meant a lot to you, tell them.

Catch them off guard.

Tell them how much it made your day.

Don’t just think it to yourself. Like, what a waste of a thought. Share the joy that they gave you. Give the joy back.

If a friend compliments you, text them later that day and tell them how great…
