Take your promises ’cause they’ve all been broken

By on November 27, 2017

Announcement: I’m currently hosting a giveaway with some other bloggers on my Instagram. The giveaway ends on the 29th! We’re giving away three makeup/skin care kits and a $250 Sephora gift card!

 

 

I’m trying to get better at flat lays, and I think I have improved! The biggest problem I have is lighting, and it doesn’t help that I only have one window, so the perfect time to take photos is during the afternoon. I need softer lighting. The light I have is yellow, so it doesn’t really do a great job + the unevenness of natural light from one window. Time to invest in some lights.

 

Anyways, I’m combining this post with some gifts I got for my birthday and housewarming (and snuck in a couple of things I got myself). I didn’t make a flat lays out of all the gifts (partly didn’t have good lighting and partly not making time for it). I feel really loved and special receiving gifts. Thank you so much to everyone who gave me a gift, but what I’m most thankful for is having you apart of my life.

Memorial Weekend Shopping

By on May 30, 2017

This Memorial weekend had so many sales! I was able to grab some items that I have been keeping my eyes on for a while.

Pretty Little Things HaulI recently found Pretty Little Things, but I haven’t been able to purchase anything until now. I’ve wanted a pastel pink and pastel blue overcoat for a while, but I haven’t been able to find one until now! This midi dress I saw on another blog, and I really wanted it. I thought this was the perfect dress for a night out or semi-formal situation for the summer. Also, all these items I got for 50%, (Slay50) so this was such a steal!

Scalloped

The other item I purchased was this swimsuit from Zaful. I’ve been on the hunt for a scalloped swimsuit, and I’ve been on the fence about purchasing a swimsuit because I’m not that comfortable with my body, but I have been working out and am planning to go to the beach more often / maybe go swimming too.  The color I got was in blue, but Polyvore only had it in red. I also got a similar scalloped dress above, not from Zaful but from Macy’s, but I couldn’t find an image of it. It was on sale, and it seems to be from last season.

 

Did you guys get anything this Memorial Weekend? I know Nordstrom is having their Anniversary Sale, and normally I purchase items from there, but I don’t need anything pressing right now. I’m pretty happy with all the items I purchased above.

Let me know if you got anything cool this weekend! I would love to see!

Bag talk: Gucci Dionysus (Review)

By on April 27, 2017

I’ve never been a Gucci fan, but I’ve been eying Gucci’s Dionysus bag for a while. After a good amount of time debating and having a bad week where my mentality went to “treat yo self,” I bought it.

I went back and forth if I wanted the original print or the one with the blooms embroidery Dionysus bag, but I stuck with the classic print.

(Images of the bags are from Gucci’s site)

I am thinking of getting the blooms print wallets, though. I’m not too sure which one yet, but these were the top ones that I’m thinking of getting:  garden floral wallet, Blooms card case, II variation of Blooms card case, III version of Blooms card case.

I know that buying material things don’t solve your problems, but there’s some comfort of having something you can call your own.

Anyways, off to my review on my new bag:
