LEOPARD MIDI SKIRT

T SHIRT rolling stones tee (wearing a small) | SKIRT leopard front slit midi skirt (wearing a two) | SNEAKERS old skool vans (wearing a seven) | JACKET leather jacket (wearing a small)

Hi babes! Happy Monday. As you can probably tell, the format has changed quite a bit on here. I have been trying out a bunch of new designs and formatting to see what works better for me and of course you. This will be my new format for all of my fashion related posts from here on out. I hope this makes it easier for you to navigate links as well as more in depth descriptions. That being said, I am so excited to share this leopard skirt that I picked up a few weeks ago at the No 14 Boutique Galentines Event. Every time I see a band tee paired with a skirt I just become more obsessed! I paired it with my black vans but hope to purchase a pair of Doc Martens here shortly in which I would also pair with this look. One nice thing about this skirt is it can be worn in he summer with sandals but also in the winter with boots or sneakers so it is a great piece to have in your closet!

SHEIN HAUL + REVIEW

Copy of Copy of Copy of My Current Skincare Routine(1)

I have seen Shein advertised so many times but I was always afraid to actually go through with a order up until last week. After browsing their website and seeing all of the many five star reviews, I decided to make my first purchase. First and foremost, this is not a sponsored post nor did I get sent any of these items. This was just a really good haul so I wanted to share it with you! The most asked question I received was…..is it worth it? My answer is 100% yes. For $113, I was able to buy nine items. Below, I have a picture with each item styled, my sizing, the price and my overall thoughts on each piece. I purchased everything on February 6 and received everything on the 11th. I would of had it by the 10th but the package needed to be signed for. Since it is shipped with DHL, you can actually sign online so I now know for future purchases. Feel free to send me any of your questions and I will gladly try to answer them!

Dalmatian Elastic Waist A-Line Skirt

I was very impressed with the overall quality of this skirt. I ordered a small and it was true to size. It does have a zipper so it is easy to get on and off and the material is thick so it is not see-through. I found a similar one at Forever21 for double the price and the quality was just as good as this one!

Contrast Puff Sleeve Frill Trim Square Neck Top

This top is my favorite item from the haul! The puff balloon sleeve trend is going to be in full force over the next couple of months. Since it is becoming so popular some stores have them for over $50!! I prefer not to spend a lot of money on trendy items because usually they go out of style at some point. This top is really good quality and even washes up well! I ordered a small and it is true to size.

Waterfall Collar Solid Longline Coat

I wanted a long coat like this to travel to Savannah in but they were all over $100. After reading the reviews, I decided to go for it and I am so glad that I did. The overall quality is great for the price but it isn’t something that will last forever but I am okay with that. I ordered a size small and it is true to size. I did wash it but I hung it to dry.

Button Front Leopard Smock Dress

Again, this dress is very good quality and the material is not see-through. I ordered a small because of the length but could of definitely fit into an extra small pending how long it would fall. It washed up well but I again hung it to dry. I do not recommend drying in a dryer.

Notched Floral Print Smock Dress

I wasn’t that big of a fan of the print but it is slowly growing on me. The quality is okay to wear a few times but I don’t think this is something that would last you years. Again, hang to dry. I ordered a size small and it is true to size.

Ditsy Floral Shirred Cami Dress

I really wanted to like this but this but this was my least favorite.I just don’t like how the top part fits and I am not the biggest fan of the print. It is good quality but I don’t recommend.

Cheetah Print Shirred Bodice Knotted Cami Dress

This dress is another favorite. The material is thick and the overall fit is just great. I like the stars but I recommend having someone help you because I was on the struggle bus lol! I highly recommend this dress! I am wearing a size small and it is true to size.

Snakeskin Lace-Up Back Top With High Waist Bikini

I have tried swimsuits off of Zaful before so I figured that this would be very similar but this swimsuit is a 10/10 for me unlike the ones from Zaful. I was very impressed with the overall quality and the fit in general. I am definitely going to be purchasing more! Since they are high waisted bottoms, I ordered a small so it sucked me in a little. The bottoms are not very cheeky but the fit would depend on the style of swimsuit you choose. This one is by far one of my favorite suits that I own!

MY SELF TANNING ROUTINE

Copy of My Current Skincare Routine(5)

I have tried so many self tanning products and this is by far my favorite! I have been using these Isle of Paradise Self Tanning Drops for months now and I will never change my routine ever again. These drops are freaking bomb! I have never had an issue with being orange or patchy. My tan also fades very well to where you don’t even notice. Other brands that I have tried I would always get patchy and gross after a few days even when exfoliating. I honestly don’t even end up having to exfoliate using these drops because it just fades away evenly.

my self tanning routine

Tanning my face: I use either my Drunk Elephant Whipped Cream or my Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask to apply my tanner on my face. It is suggested to use only white lotion as colored lotions can affect the drops. I put a penny size of moisturizer in my hand and add three drops. I apply the moisturizer and drops evenly all over my face making sure to go to my hair line. As always, make sure you wash your hands after.

Tanning my body: I use any body lotion that I currently have whether that be Jergens, Burt’s Bees, or Aveeno. Depending on how I tan I want to be, I usually use three drops for each application. I do each leg and then each arm. Then I go back in and do my neck, chest, back and stomach. Once again make sure to wash your hands.

CELEBRATING MY COLLEGE GRADUATION FIESTA STYLE

Copy of Copy of My Current Skincare Routine(5)

As I have talked about many times before, my college career has been full of struggles and road blocks. This past January, I finally completed my Bachelors degree in business administration and I could not be more proud of myself for never giving up. Typically, you don’t have a college graduation party but my parents wanted to celebrate my accomplishment considering the circumstances. So last Saturday, my parents threw me a graduation party with all of my family and friends. I didn’t want to do just a standard party with my colleges colors so we decided to do something different and have a fiesta with tacos, salsa, and margaritas! Needless to say, it was a huge hit and everyone left happy! I had the absolute best time and am beyond grateful to have so many amazing people in my life. For food, we had Moe’s Southwest Grill cater as well as our family friend who catered gyros. My mom also ordered mini sandwiches and a few family members made salads.

HELLO FRESH MEAL KIT DELIVERY SERVICE REVIEW

Copy ofy of Copy of Copy of My Current Skincare Routine(1)

I have been wanting to try out Hello Fresh for a while now so after a coworker sent me a coupon for a free box, I jumped on it. This is not a sponsored post or as this is my honest thoughts. I ordered three meals for two people. I ended up making them for my boyfriend, my dad, and myself. There was enough food for all of us even though it serves only two people. I made the Sesame glazed sweet potato tacos, Parmesan-crusted chicken with creamy lemon tomato spaghetti, and the Italian noodle soup with chicken sausage and parmesan toasts.

What is Hello Fresh?

Hello Fresh is a meal-kit company that is based in Germany and is the largest meal-kit provider in the United States. You can skip a week or cancel at anytime with no hassle. They start at $7.49 per meal and all of their produce and meats are super fresh.

What is all included in your box?

Each box comes with a recipe card that has nutritional facts and easy to follow directions. Their ingredients are sourced right from the farm and sauces/spices come prepackaged. Each meal is packed in a brown paper bag and taped shut making it easy to fit in your refrigerator.

Using Hello Fresh With A Food Allergy?

Their nutrition team reviews every ingredient for 8 allergens including: wheat, milk, soy, eggs, tree nuts, peanuts, fish, and shellfish.

LUMA MT LEBO PITTSBURGH RESTAURANT REVIEW

Copy of HEALTH & WELLNESS(10)

Last week, my boyfriend and I wanted to go to a new restaurant to celebrate my graduation. I always enjoy going to a new place in town but the one he had in mind didn’t have any reservations so we decided to go to Luma in Mt.Lebanon. I was kind of shocked how small the inside was but sometimes that is nice for a more intimate dinner. Since it is a little on the fancy side, right away our waiter came over with water in which they walked around and filled up once we got low. To start off they gave us freshly baked bread with oil. This bread was unlike any bread that I have ever tasted. It was SO dang good! We also both ordered a glass of riesling which paired well it. They had a decently sized menu but we happened to go during restaurant week so they had a special menu where you can get an appetizer, entree, and dessert for less than $40. My boyfriend ended up going with that option and I went with their crab cakes with wild rice and sauteed broccoli. For his appetizer he ordered zucchini roulade filled with prosciutto, .basil & fresh mozzarella with a tomato cream sauce. For his entree, he ordered braised short rib over romano mashed potatoes topped with a cabernet demi-glace. Lastly, for dessert he picked the warmed chocolate chip brownie topped with dark chocolate sauce, vanilla ice cream and whipped cream.

I heard from multiple people that they are known for their crab cakes and I can attest to that because they were amazing! So if you end up stopping here, definitely try their bread and crap cakes!
