Adventures in Camo

I love a good sale. But like an actual one not like just 10% off because unless it’s a large priced item 10% is really like the tax off on your item to me, lol. But Sirens was having an awesome sale of 40% off the entire store so I had to jump in. Being a mom of 3 if I do actually get myself something it’s rare because I always end up getting things for my kids instead (which I ended up getting some things for my oldest daughter too, lol) and completely forget about myself. But I’ve been trying to revamp my wardrobe and be a little more comfortable in my mom bod until I can get back in the gym. So I wanted to get a few cute things to wear.

I got this outfit because it’s stylist but still comfy. I love dresses, especially in spring and summer time because they’re easy to put on and you don’t have to worry about putting an outfit together. It’s one piece and you just get dressed and go. I could throw a jacket, cardigan or duster on over it and style it how I want. This cropped and distressed camo jacket is so cute and it’s stretchy material made it comfortable to wear.

My bag is from avenue and it’s so cute and easy to carry. I can put the things I need in it but don’t have a big bag I have to carry around with me. My sneakers from Sirens are so comfy and cute. I actually picked them up in 3 different colors. But black sneakers are a must for me because they go with literally everything. I think the gold detailing adds a trendy touch to them as well.

What are some sales you couldn’t pass up this past month? Where’s your favorite trendy and affordable places to shop? I hope you loves have an awesome Monday.

My Go To No Makeup, Makeup Look

With being a busy mom of 3, a lot of times I don’t have enough time to sit down and do a dramatic look or a full on glammed our face but I still want to look put together and awake even when I’m not, lol. I’ve been loving the more neutral no makeup, makeup looks. It’s fast and easy but also gives my facial features a chance to stand out a bit on their own. My skin is still smooth and flawless but it looks natural without a lot of products used. I don’t use eyeshadow or liner, I only use false lashes when I really want my eyes to pop and I use a nude tone lipstick most of the time for this look as well. It’s perfect for looking put together for work, errands and even quick drinks with friends or a laid back date night.

I will however use highlight. I love a good highlight. Makes your skin glow without much effort and I think it looks beautiful. Your skin looks so healthy with a nice glow to it. Obviously you don’t need to beam peoples eyes out with a no makeup makeup look but sometimes I just wanna a little extra shine (in a good way, not an oily face lol.)

On my face:

Too Faced Peach Perfect Foundation

Maybelline loose powder in medium deep under the eyes and deep on the rest of my face

Nyx bronzer in

Tarte blush in feisty

La colors highlight palette

Loreal liquid lip

Nyx brow gel in espresso and European Wax Center brow powder duo in medium

Below I listed some of my favorite products to use when I’m doing a more neutral look. I usually don’t use eye shadows or anything extra like that. I try and keep it as basic and simple as possible but still get the ultimate put together look. I get compliments all the time as well like oh you look so good, your skin looks great, you seem so energized today, etc. and I’m like oh thank you while also thinking girl I’m on my third cup of coffee and my 3 yr old changed her outfit 4 times before we could leave the house. 😂😂

Product list:

Anyway, what are your favorite ways to get ready quick? Do you have any get glam quick tips that you live by?

I hope you all have a wonderful Friday. ❤️

My Top 6 Favorite Drugstore Highlights

Hi loves. So I've been obsessed with highlighting lately. It's been the highlight (pun intended, lol) of my everyday makeup routine. Whether I'm just running errands, going to work or for a night out I always have some highlight. It just depends on how bright I wanna shine that day, lol. I feel like it just gives such a beautiful and effortless glow to the skin and face. It really brightens everything up and even if you aren't feeling the day or feeling well, a good highlight can really bring life to your face. So I've picked these 6 (7 if you count both of the wet n wild highlights) as my top favs so far for the summer.

Here I am wearing Maybelline Strobing stick and Master Chrome.

Here's a picture of me wearing Maybelline Master Chrome in 100 Molten Gold

Here are swatches of all of them

Swatches from left to right:
Colourpop, Maybelline Strobing stick, Maybelline Strobing liquid, Wet n Wild Crown of my canopy and precious petals, Maybelline Master Chrome in 100 Molten Gold, Makeup Revolution skin kiss in peach kiss

I love the fact that these are perfect for any skin tone but I love them because they're great on tan and darker skin tones especially. They really give a beautiful glow to the skin and you can layer them to be as subtle or as bright as you want. Best of all it's all drugstore or affordable highlights so you aren't breaking the bank. Every one of them is under $10! I hope you loves give these a try, I'm sure you will love them just as much as I do.

Colourpop amethyst crystal liquid highlighter $8

Live In Jeans 

I could literally live in a comfy pair of jeans. Easy to style, comfy and they fit well. It’s like a dream. Especially for me because I have long legs and a little bubble butt so it’s hard to find jeans that have a good fit at the top and bottom, lol. 
  

So when I discovered Fashion Nova  after many, many other people kept talking about them. I decided why not try them out, lol. These boyfriend jeans are literally everything. I’m pretty sure I’m going to purchase another pair because they are just so awesome. They fit well. They are loose but not baggy and they are the soft lived in distressed denim that I love. 
  

My sneakers are awesome too. I got these from Just Fab and I love them. They are just my style and they come in white too. My bodysuit is from Forever 21 and I’m loving bodysuits right now because it’s just like having a tucked in shirt without having it ride up or pop out. 

   
   

What’s your favorite comfy style to wear? Do you prefer heels or sneakers with it? For me it all depends on the outfit and where I’m going. But for hump day, these boyfriend jeans, sneakers and a plain black top work just fine for me. I hope you are having an awesome Wednesday. We are halfway through the week. WOO HOO!!

Saturday Vibes

  

I love easy weekends. I especially love easy comfy outfits. I thought this sweatsuit was so cute. Especially with the gold heart on the front and slits in the elbows and knees. I thought it added a nice touch. I went perfectly with my Nikes and Paparazzi sunglasses.

Sunday Chic

  

I love a cute yet comfortable dress. Especially when I can dress it up or down. This adorable plaid dress is just that. I wore this to church on Sunday and but I didn’t want it to be overly dressy or take a turn for too Christmasy. So I paired it with a light faux leather jacket and nude pumps. 

  
I added my yellow necklace to bring out the yellow in the print and dull down the holiday vide some more but I didn’t add anymore jewelry because I didn’t want it to be over the top. 

   
    
    
    
    
    
 

I love figuring out ways to take different seasons fashion trends and dress them up or down to wear all year round. I hope you’re as excited for the weekend as I am. Happy Friday dolls.

A Fun Little Print 

  
I love a little. Sometimes I love a lot of prints, lol. But this cute little jacket was adorable to me and perfect to throw on over a sweater for a not too hot, not too cold day. I paired my off white 3/4 length cowl neck sweater with this little jacket, jeans and my rain boots and I was ready for the day. It was rainy all day here in Florida so rain boots were a must. This jacket has a nice material and it’s thick enough to go over a sweater and keep you warm on a kinda of chilly day. 
   
 
  

   
 

The sleeves for me are a little above my wrists, which I’m 5’9″ and have very long lims so for some this may be long sleeves but for me, almost but not quite, lol. But I figured that when I purchased it which is why it’s a cute little not too hot, not too cold day sweater. The zipper detailing is gold and the sweater is slightly off white with black pattern all over. Over all a great little jacket to throw on and spice up a plain sweater and pair of jeans. I would probably dry clean this jacket. Though it has cotton in it, I feel the material would mess up after washing and drying more than once.

New Old School 

  
I love a cute skirt just as much as the next girl. I also love a cute varsity jacket. So what better way to love both at the same time then to wear them at the same time. I love the new school, old school edge this outfit has with the varsity jacket and pleated skirt and the jean jacket and combat boots add a new edge to it that I love. 

   
 

I love layering so this was a cute and fun way to incorporate that style into my outfit. What’s your favorite winter/spring trend?
I hope you’re having an awesome Tuesday.

Happiness is Expensive 

  
I love a cute warm sweatshirt and a good pair of distressed and torn jeans. I actually diy’d these jeans myself. They are Old Navy boyfriend jeans and I added my own little twist to them. It was raining here in Florida so I got to wear my rain boots which are comfortable and easy to slip on when you’re running out the door. 

   
   

I hate going out on rainy days, I much prefer to stay in and snuggle up with a good book to read but if I do have to go out I like to be comfortable. I wanna throw my hair up and run out and get back home, lol. I’m still obsessed with Dresslink so shopping off their site right now is an absolute must for me. 
What do you like to wear on rainy days? 
I hope you had a beautiful Friday. How’s your weekend going?
