Work Week Chic OOTD

Happy Hump Day!!

We've made it to mid-week and we're that much closer to the weekend!!! I hope you guys are all having a fantastic week so far!! With the "work week" in mind, today I wanted to bring you an office-friendly, interview-appropriate outfit idea. This look is also perfect for a casual spring day-time date, maybe coffee and good conversation with that cutie you've been eying?

I'm not a big fan of blue but for some reason I feel that navy is just so elegant and professional, and a lot less harsh than black. For this look I decided to use a navy and cream color palette. I was especially excited to FINALLY wear this peplum top that I snagged a few months back at JC Penny on sale for only $10!!!!! I wish I could have gotten one in every color but of course, with such a great sale, my size was sold out.

Outfit Deets:
Blazer: Gap
Peplum top: JC Penny
Slacks: Gap
Shoes: Sperry
Purse: Michael Kors

I hope you like this look. Let me know what you think? Also, what else would you like to see on my blog?

Love always,

I am a Glam Doll OOTD

Hey Beauties! Today I'm sharing a casual "jeans and T" look with a deeper meaning. A gorgeous fellow YouTuber friend of mine created custom T-shirts with the words Glam Doll on them. The message behind the shirts is truly beautiful to me. Her inspiration for creating the shirt came from women in her life who show confidence and fearlessness when pursuing their dreams. We are all Glam Dolls in our own right and as women I have always believe that we should support and uplift one another. Too many women strive to tear others down in hopes of getting ahead. I'm absolutely sure that we can all get much farther by working together and empowering one another. Thank you Melissa for this adorable T and the message behind it. You've truly inspired me and made my wardrobe all the more cuter! (Check out Melissa's YouTube channel: and her instagram @melissaflores) Now on to the look... Sometimes we just have casual days where we spend the day running errands, this was one of those days. I wanted to be comfy but also stylish. I started with the basic jeans and T blueprint. I threw in some combat boots for comfort and a rugged "I'm cool without trying" effect and a pair of dark sunglasses to really drive that "cool" message home heehee. Finally I added a cardi because NYC just does not want to give into Spring yet, and a patterned coat for a flair of style as well as warmth.
Outfit Deets:
Jeans: Old Navy
T Shirt: Check out Melissa's social media for more info
Cardigan: Gap
Jacket: Macy's
Boots: Steve Madden
Sunglasses: Retro Super Future

See you with a new post later this week,

Influenster J'Adore VoxBox

Hey Baby Cakes!

Happy MARCHHHH!!! The month of Spring is finally here wooohooooo!! I don't know about you, but I am MORE than ready!!

Today I'm sharing with you my Influenster J'Adore VoxBox that arrived about a week ago. If you want to watch my unboxing video on YouTube check down below in this post. =0]

Here is an overview of everything that came in the box. Sorry for the head tilt action that I'm causing you, I wasn't sure how to rotate the pic .. sowwwieees

Red Rose Simply Indulgent Teas: $4.49 for carton of 20 bags
I'm not the biggest tea person ever but I do like a good tea from time to time. I love camomile tea because it is what I grew up drinking every time I had a tummy ache (with a lot of honey!). The flavors I received include Lemon Chiffon and Creme Caramel. I've yet to try them myself but my mom tried one of the caramel flavors and gave it her stamp of approval.

Hershey's Kisses Milk Chocolate: $5.29 for 18.5 oz bag (pictured above)/ $3.28 for 11oz bag
Milk Chocolate Hershey's Kisses.... Need I say any more?!?!? The clouds parted and I heard angels singing when I saw this huge bag of deliciousness!!

Kiss Looks So Natural Lashes: $3.99
These lashes have tapered ends to more closely mimic natural lashes and blend in better. I love love this style but for my personal eyelashes (which are naturally very long) I feel that these may be a bit short. Which makes them the perfect gift for my best friend =0] .. That's what friends are for right?

Frizz Ease 3-Day Straight Flat Iron Spray: $9.99 for 3.5 fl. oz.
this is infused with keratin and said to keep hair straight for 3 days... As I pick up my jaw from the floor haha. I am totally excited to try this. If it works it will be a summer staple for me as my hair is naturally very frizzy and in the summer time I pretty much finish straightening one side and the opposite side is frizzy once again. Darm humidity! This may become a life saver! Can't wait to put it to the test.

Boots botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask: $9.39
This I've actually tried already and I did enjoy it as a mask. However I noticed it left my face flaky and extra dry afterwards. I had my concerns when I saw "shine away" because I assumed it was for oily skin, but in the mini description included by Influenster it claims that it is not supposed to overdry your skin. ("helps to draw out impurities without overdrying"). We have been having extremely cold weather in NYC lately so I will be giving it another try in about a week - the weather is supposed to be more mild by the end of this week (well, high 30's low 40's but comparatively that's amazing!). I'll keep you guys updated of any changes.
