Ever Since I Left The City

#Vibes

Hi beautiful people !

Just a quick reminder of good practices you can implement into your daily life to make 2017 everything you want it to be and more. 

  1. Start every single day with a grateful heart. Take some time in the morning to meditate or pray. Wake up a little earlier than normal and sit on the couch with coffee and really feel the world around you. Do something that inspires you in the morning. Do a power pose, apply a new shade of blush, do 50 jumping jacks, or dance around your bathroom to your favorite song. 
  2. Turn any negative into a positive all day long. Anytime you’re feeling down or negativity comes your way, combat it with positive thinking and happy thoughts. Try to smile at people more. Ask people at work how their weekend was. Radiate your positive energy and pass it on to everyone around you. Take time in the day to breathe deeply. 
  3. Before going to bed at night take ten minutes to write down everything you are grateful for. Your job, your family, your health, the birthday card you got in the mail, your fitness progress, your ability to see, hear, and breathe. Name everything you can think of. When that list is complete move on to things you want. Name both short term and long term goals. Visualize them. Feel them. Imagine what it would be like to attain them. 

These small steps will help you achieve basically anything that you want and desire in life. If you put positivity out into the universe you can and WILL manifest that energy into positive things. If you visualize the things you want they will find a way into your life. I encourage everyone to adopt this lifestyle and watch your life flourish into more than you could ever imagine.

Have a blessed week beauty babes,

Stop For No One

#NewYearVibes

Good morning beautiful babes! Just needed to share with you some new year feels. 2016 was so incredibly good to me in terms of growing and finding myself. In four short days I can already see where 2017 is taking me. This year is 100 percent about personal growth and kicking some ass. Being kind but not careful. Learning every day but stopping for nothing. There is no such thing as boundaries or ceilings anymore. 

Not at work. Not at home. Not at the gym. Nowhere.  

Take some time this year to motivate yourself to be the best version of you. See what you want and make it happen. Set goals and crush them every day. Don’t put your dreams and goals on hold for anyone else around you that might be trying to bring you down. Stay inspired and rise above. 

“There is nothing enlightened about shrinking  so others don’t feel insecure around you. And as we let our own light shine we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fears, our presence automatically liberates others”

#ForYourViewingPleasure

 

Hi beauties !

Hope everyone is staying warm if you are in an area where the weather is absolutely sucking !!!

As you can see ^^^^ I’m dreaming of warmer days and jumping off of rando party boats in the middle of nowhere, Mexico. Ugh😐😐😐
Anyway! I wanted to share with you my outfit of the day. Today I paired a taupey colored pair of slacks from Express with a forrest green ribbed sweater. 

On my feet I have one of my absolute favorite pair of booties that I actually picked up from H&M a few seasons ago. 


As for pieces of jewelry you haven’t seen yet…this is one of my ride or die staple pieces. I absolutely love chunky statement necklaces and this is definitely my most favorite one that I own. I got this out of one of my Stitch Fix boxes back when I was subscribed to that. For anyone who doesn’t know what that is it’s actually very awesome. You pay an initial 50 bucks and do a style quiz. You have a personal stylist pick out 5 pieces a month and send them right to your house. If you don’t like them you can mail them back or pay for them to keep them. The more you buy, the bigger discount you get. It’s all adorable boutique stuff and you can always email the stylist if you need certain things or don’t like their picks. I only got rid of it because I was spending way too much money😐


My handbag of choice today was a recent buy and I am absolutely IN love with it. Long story short:  My boyfriend is the best ever in the world. Ahhhhh Kate is life. Thanks baby😘


As far as makeup is concerned I legit don’t even know why I post this anymore hahaha Rosalie = cool brown smokey eye with mauvey blush, bronzer, and a nudey brown purple lip. 👌🏻

By the way I got my hair done yesterday 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍 give me all the blonde baby baby. 

 
Oh and one last thing….for those who don’t know drake is my absolute KING. He released this song from his new album that should be out in the beginning of 2017. He originally released that it would be out in December but we all know drake likes to tease us. He also said that this next project won’t be an album or a mixtape but more like a playlist that you can listen to on the daily. Ugh so in love 😍

Okay beauties that’s all I got for you today ! I absolutely love sharing my day with you and hopefully give you some inspo for beauty, cosmetics, and just life in gen😘😘😘 love you all and please comment and let me know what you think!

give me the business

#Casually

Hi beauties !

You know I’m always finding new ways to dress for work. Business casual is SUCH a hard style to perfect. I always struggle with whether or not I’m too casual or too dressy or too tight or too baggy. But today this outfit came together perfectly and I couldn’t wait to share it with you all. This is a combination of pieces I would wear out casually and pieces specifically for work. I paired a more casual top from a TJ Maxxs trip with a nice skirt I got at Loft last winter season. 

The picture doesn’t quite show it but the tights I have on are slightly transparent and perfect for this time of year. I probably would swap out thicker tights in the colder winter months. I love this look with the chunky booties I have on that have a slight heel to them to dress it up.

As you can see I’ve paired this outfit with some of my favorite staple GO TO ride or die jewelry pieces. My favorite Michael Kors watch and chunky rings. Also wanted a necklace that popped for this look so I threw on a choker with a bright diamond look. I love this necklace for the holidays…makes me feel so festive and beautiful❄️☃️🌲 


As for make up…you guys already know! This is my go to look for work. Slightly bronzed face, slightly smoky eye, and bold ish lip! I think it looks polished but isn’t over the top and inappropriate for the work place. 

New products I tried in this look:

NYX Brow Gel in shade 03 Brunette

Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in shade Untainted Spice

Maybelline Matte Coal Liner in Black

Clothing:

Top: TJ Maxxs Find ( gotta love it👌🏻) $15-$20

Skirt: Loft $59.50

Tights: Loft $14.50

Booties: Madden Girl $44.95

Choker: Missguided sale item

Watch: Michael Kors $250

 

Hope you beauties enjoyed this post and it gave you some inspo for adorable winter work outfits 💕💕💕 as always please comment and let me know what you think.

 
Have a wonderful day,

Xoxo

who works on the weekends

#NoBueno

Good morning beauties!

I am trying to keep a smile on my face all day today at work. I work for Honda in sales so I work every Saturday but have Wednesday’s off. I actually really like this because I can get all my errands done during the week when it’s not crazy hectic everywhere. And I’m done by 4 on Saturdays so I don’t want to cry too hard 😭😭😭

 

Anyway, I wanted to share with you my #OOTD and give you some ideas for a more business casual setting. I am a huge fan of shirt dresses for work! Because I’m tall I have trouble finding work dresses that are an appropriate length. With shirt dresses I always wear leggings and tall boots and maybe throw a long sweater over it if I get chilly. I think the shirt dress look keeps it dressy enough to be considered business casual but it’s still a super comfortable look and very versatile.

I paired this dress with thick leggings and tall Steve Madden boots. Also threw on a long sweater because my office gets soooo chilly❄️ To make this look pop I threw on my Michael Kors Rose Gold Watch, a beautiful necklace that I actually picked up at a consignment shop, and a few of my favorite rings. 

 

Express Shirt Dress: $60

Cotton On Long Light-weight Sweater: $15.00

Urban Outfitters Tights: $9.00

Steve Madden Tall Boots: $80.95

Michael Kors Rose Gold Watch: $250

Pandora Rings: $50-$100

 

I hope this gave you girlies some inspo if you need some for the workplace ! As always beauties thank you so much for reading and I can’t wait to post so much more all weekend long💕💕💕 please comment down below and let me know what you guys think and give me some more ideas for biz casual outfits !

#TheChristmasTag

Hi beauties! For todays post I thought it would be fun to answer some holiday inspired questions I’ve seen floating around my feed. This is something different that I haven’t done before so I thought it would be cool to give it a go.

 

Hope you enjoy and feel free to keep it going!

 

 

1. What is your favourite Christmas film?

Such a no brainer on this one. ELF! This is hands down the best christmas movie I’ve ever seen. I watch this movie every year with my family and it honestly never gets old. love love love.

2. Have you ever had a White Christmas?

Yes! But not completely white. Just a light snow, maybe 2 or 3 inches but it still made it feel that much more special. I absolutely love when it snows near Christmas, makes it feel like a fairytale.

3. Where do you usually spend your holiday?

My dad and step-mom throw a big party on Christmas Eve and we open presents, drink wine, eat, spend time together, drink more wine, eat more, and drink more wine. Its lovely. Then Christmas morning I head over to my Grandmothers and spend the morning with my mom’s side. Love it. Then later in the afternoon my boyfriend and I pop over at his families house and relax and eat some more. perfection.

4. What is your favourite Christmas song?

omgosh this is a hard one. But I could honestly listen to all I want for Christmas is you covered by Queen Mariah Carey all year long. ughhhh slays my heart. I was visiting my aunt in Africa one year over Christmas and I was in the airport and this song came on. I literally missed my boyfriend so fricken much because I was away for 3 weeks and I most definitely shed a tear or two listening to it. loveeeeeeeeeee

5. Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?

Yup!!! I love that tradition.

6. Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer?

Here goes nothing. Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen, Rudolph. BOOOOM. literally sang Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer in my head just then hahah

7. What holiday traditions are you looking forward to most this year?

All of them honestly. I love spending time with my family over Christmas.

8. Is your Christmas tree real or fake?

Okay this year I started decorating so early. I decorated my office at work, and the inside of my house in mid November. cray. But I dont honestly think we will do a tree this year which is so sad. We have a cat and a puppy and it just doesnt end well.

9. What is your all-time favorite holiday food/sweet treat?

Grandmas Christmas cookies. TO DIE FOR.

10. Be honest: do you like giving gifts or receiving gifts better?

I love love love giving gifts. It is so rewarding to watch someone open up something you know they are going to love. nothing better.

11. What is the best Christmas gift you’ve ever received?

Such a hard one. Honestly I cant really pick one out. Every year has been a dream.

12. What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?

Okay this year my boyfriend and I are going to Mexico the second week in December so MEXICO! Merry Christmas to us. =]

13. Are you a pro-present wrapper, or do you fail miserably?

Such a fail. such. a. fail. Going to try harder this year but no promises.

14. Most memorable Holiday moment?

I think it was when I was little I wanted this baby doll so fricken badly. I thought about it every single night before I went to sleep. I literally begged my parents for it every day. I woke up christmas morning hoping and praying that I would get it and sure enough the first gift I opened was Baby So Real. I literally cried my eyes out and blabbered about how much I loved it for like 15 minutes. My dad got all of this on video tape. He swears hes going to play it at my wedding….

 

15. What made you realize the truth about Santa?

I think my older brother ruined it, thanks jerk.

16. Do you make New Years resolutions? Do you stick to them?

I try not too because I think if I want something bad enough I shouldn’t wait until the New Year to go after it. Always going after my goals!

17. What makes the holidays special for you?

My family, hands down.

 

 

This was so fun to do! I was a little slow at work today so taking ten minutes out of my day to write this really made me feel wonderul. I love the holiday so so much and being able to share my thoughts and feelings about them with you guys makes my heart happy.Please feel free to take time to do this for yourself and as always leave me your thoughts in the comment section because i love hearing them.

 

Happy December beautiful people
