My Most Embarrassing Zit Story + Giveaway

Getting a zit is bad but popping a zit can be as disastrous as the blemish itself... I remember my most embarrassing moment in my early 20's. It was the night before a big date with a guy I was swooning over and of course there was a huge pimple size of a moon right above to my lips. I should have listened to my mom's advice to never pick, gouge, pop, scratch or squeeze the damn zit. But I wanted it gone! The horrid I went through that evening trying all these ways to conceal it all but making it worse. The pimple not only came back bigger, but it left a scar for about a month. Someone even pointed it out at one point, thinking I had food on my lips. Yeah really embarrassing. But eventually, EVENTUALLY, it dried up and healed. Oh and that guy? My zit definitely lasted longer than him. The moral to this story? First, never pop a zit (especially not for a guy!); and second, always make sure to have good acne products, like Zapzyt, on hand.

Distressed, Lace-ups, and Cutouts All-Day Everyday

I am back!! Sorry I have been MIA but owning a business, running a blog,  working on my many other creative projects, and traveling - has my life in a whirlwind. Not complaining at all cause life is good :) As I am always on the go, I have always had problems finding the perfect chic and comfy shoes.  I am pretty tall (5'8") so any shoes over two inches makes my feet ache after a couple hours. Not these babies though. At 4.25 inches, I can rock them all day. I get so many compliments every time I wear them. Make sure you size up half a size because they run on the small side. Lucky for you, you can use Karmaloop coupon code and get 30% OFF these shoes and everything from that website! Speaking of sales, the jeans and coat is also on sale. Be sure to shop the whole look below and click on the coupon button to get discounts. Cause... "I want to pay full price" - said no one ever. Cheerio!

What To Wear To A Wedding That's Not A Dress

Tote c/o Lord & Taylor | Romper  C/MEO | Shoes (older c/o Koolaburra )

My fridge is covered with beautiful 'save the dates' and wedding invitations for this summer (Congrats Brett & Kristen, Jessica & Noel, Vanessa & Jeremy!). My mind is buzzing of what to wear but wedding dress codes come with a lot of stipulations — not too short, not too flashy, and please, please don't wear white (eggshell or cream!).  I want to look my best but I know I don't want to be that girl. You know, the one who showed up looking like a two-dollar hooker or worse, obviously trying to upstage the bride.

Espadrille Flatforms

I don't know if you can tell but it was such a windy day when I was shooting this. It might look like a pose, but I was struggling to look cute and keep my adorable Brixton hat from flying away. Oh the struggles of being a fashion blogger ;)

Ways To Graze

Between blogging, graphic/website designs, and running a full-time business, I am always on-the-go. It leaves me little to no time to spare. There are many afternoons when I don't have time to eat but that is not good news. I am one of those people that gets HANGRY when I don't get food in my system (my boyfriend can attest to that). I always have a hard time finding the perfect healthy, guilt-free snack. I mean, I'd love indulge in a big ol' bag of potato chips just as much as the next person, but that never ends well. I try to live a healthy lifestyle by exercising and eating multiple smaller portioned meals throughout the day.  The idea is that if you eat small portions every few hours, you will keep your hunger under control, metabolism elevated and energy levels high. That's why I'm so excited to have found Graze.

Festival Vibin'

Super delayed on posting this but life has been craaaazay. In a good way! Without further ado, let's talk about this look. I accidentally ordered a large in this lace-up open shoulder top which is fine because I usually like everything oversized anyways for a more flowy look. But because of the low cut details, boobies were like 'HELLO, WE CAME TO PLAY." Luckily I had ordered this cute caged bikini top so I wore it under the top. Lots of details here, but that's what festival season is all about.... lace-ups, lace downs (is that even a thing?), gladiator, florals, layers upon layers. Be free, Stay Wild!

Windy Days & Chic Vibes

Happy April ya'l! Despite the much-anticipated springtime, the weather is still quite temperamental, bringing warmth during midday and chilly temperatures by the time we reach our evening commute. I don't know about you, but I'll be wearing faux fur coats out at night, to work, and even on lazy weekends. You can't stop me, but you can follow my lead. This ombre fur coat from Choies is so soft and chic. It's perfect for Spring because it's not super heavy. Just be sure you pair with something casual and chic so you don't end up looking like a pimp. I paired it with a pair of distressed jeans and these killer Pour La Victoire woven leather platform heels.

Shop this look here and don't forget to use this Choies coupon.
