Happy Wednesday my beautiful friends!

For the past several weeks, I've been seeing so many cute button detailed pieces at some of my favorite stores and on my Instagram feed. It's mostly in a vertical design on tops, dresses and skirts, which makes for such a flattering detail, since it downward, visually slimming and elongating the body. The buttons are also quite notable either in a larger size or a sharp color contrast to the piece itself.

Happy Tuesday friends!

If you follow me on Instagram (you totally should ;) and happened to watch my IG story on my Sephora sale haul, then you'd remember me sharing this Caudalíe Deep Cleansing Exfoliator. I was in need of a new exfoliator because the one I'd been using wasn't doing the job for me. I have combination/oily skin with larger pores, so I need an exfoliator that's gentle, yet still abrasive enough to clean everything out and help minimize my large pores. 

Today I want to share what my experience has been since using it for the past month or so, as promised.

Happy Monday my beautiful friends!

On Friday, we talked about how lace is a great fabric for summer nights especially. If you missed that post, you can give it a read here!

Today, we'll be discussing yet another fabric that's ideal for the warmer months, particularly when going the more dressy route for either work or to dress up a denim look and that's satin. 

It's a fabric that's been trending for quite a while, mainly since the 90s comeback began, as well as the pajama trend. Many luxe pajamas are done in this fabric pointing to the reason as to why it's great for the summer, it's cool and comfortable. The soft texture brushes the skin in a way that's comfortable, not to mention it looks luxe. I also love the fluid effect it has when worn in a loose, flowy fit, like the shirt I'm wearing.

Happy Friday my beautiful friends!

The temperatures are beginning to rise and it's feeling more like summer and I couldn't be happier! I love being outdoors and summer date nights are my favorite; I love dining outside when possible. Though our summer dates will be looking a lot different these days with little miss Aviah, but we don't mind at all! Even though the little one will be tagging along for our evening dates, that doesn't mean that I'll be forgoing my dressed up chic outfits entirely. Since we'll be cutting the nights short, wearing my heels and impractical lace tops is totally doable ;)

Happy Wednesday my sweet friends! 

For Mother's Day, I was contacted by Pai-Shau, a tea infused haircare brand, and was kindly gifted a trio gift set containing two products from their hydrating line and an infusion product to review. I was so intrigued by their innovative concept of infusing an assortment of teas, vitamins, and antioxidants. I've never heard of a brand that's done this before, so I was eager to try these products out to see what they'd do for my hair.

Happy Monday my beautiful friends!

You all know how much I love graphic tees, I've talked about them quite often here on the blog and wore them a lot when I was pregnant especially. I noticed that I often talk about dressing them up with blazers (see examples here & here), but there are definitely other ways you can dress them up, such as with a pencil skirt, as I've done today.  The one I'm wearing is faux leather, so it's not heavy for the summer months, making it a great option for a summer night out when you know it'll be a bit cooler.

Happy Friday my beautiful friends!

I'm sure many of you, like me, find yourselves on a crunch for time when getting ready to head out the door sometimes. On days like this, there's usually something that happens that disturbs the flow of me getting ready and before you know it, I look at the clock and I have about 20 minutes to get both me and Aviah ready to head out the door. Whether you're a mom on the go, heading to work or school, we all experience this every now and then and want no fail looks that we can turn to for days like this as a result.

Happy Wednesday my sweet friends!

How was your holiday weekend? We had a great time grilling, though it was a bit chilly and gloomy. The weather has been so crazy these past couple of months especially. One day it's extremely hot and humid and the next it's chilly and rainy and what's even more crazy is that we're about to enter into June! How's the weather where you are?

Happy Friday my beautiful friends!
As many of you know, if you've been reading the blog for the past couple of months, then you'd know that I've been going through a rough season. I don't want to harp on it, but at the same time, I feel that sometimes it's necessary to get a little real and be open and honest about life. With social media and its perfect looking and carefully curated photos, it can be easy to give the appearance of having a perfect, well put together life either intentionally or unintentionally. As creatives, many of us do so unintentionally because we use the blogosphere as a creative outlet, but sometimes it's necessary to share what we're going through, so that our readers are reminded that we, too, are human and experience hard, trying times as well.

Happy Wednesday my beautiful friends!

Today I'm styling a top I received courtesy of MY Fashion Crate this past weekend. If you watched my unboxing video this past weekend, it's the piece I wasn't sure was a top or dress. Though I loved the print when I first saw it in the package, I honestly wasn't expecting the beautiful ruffle details on the arms, which makes it that much more beautiful! I absolutely love it and might wear it to a baby shower I'll be attending this upcoming weekend.
