A few days ago I shot this outfit featuring this tank from Vardagen, a small business that specializes in everyday streetwear. The exact tank can be found here. Vardagen has a great selection of shirts, tanks, and sweatshirts for Men and Women so you should visit there site here. Designs that appeal to the everyday person, the adventurous hippie or the skater chick. I love a good designed tank because you can wear it with almost anything, like jeans, shorts, or even a skirt. I chose to paired my tank with white skinny jeans and a red blazer. Adding red flats and bright blue earrings completed the outfit. Check it out below. I have linked similar items. Hope you enjoy!
A couple days ago I shot this awesome sweatshirt from Vardagen, a small business that specializes in everyday streetwear.

The fit is true to size and it is super soft. This one will probably be on repeat and become a favorite fast.

Right now my workspace is not idea, but my dining room table serves many purposes. LOL! When I do have my own office space for my blog and other ventures I have plan to pursue it will definitely be a creative workspace. I already have many ideas for the type of office I would like, but until then a girl can dream, right?
I want my workspace to be clean and functional. Lots of storage is a must. Complete with a clothing rack so I plan my looks for my blog shoots. Lots of desk space with cute and colorful chairs and a chandelier. I love chandeliers. I would like to also set up a place to do video for makeup tutorials and clothing and product hauls. Having a creative workspace to help manifest what you are trying to project to your audience helps to keep you focused and organized.
If you do not have a workspace a great alternative is WeWork, a company that offers a shared workspace for people who freelance, run their own business or are looking to create a startup. Check out their website here. I have linked some great office needs and furniture below. What is your must have in a office? Hope you enjoy!
Since my boyfriend will be out of town I will be celebrating a week later, but if I was going out that night I will stick with what I call comfortably chic. Black leggings or skinny jeans, paired with a black tank. To add a pop of color I prefer to add a blazer. The pink one below is one of my favorites, bought a couple years ago from NY&CO. I also like to spice it up a little with my leopard heels and a leopard belt. I am a big fan of leopard print. My collection of leopard print shoes are growing. I think I have like 4-5 pairs. Check out my look below. I have linked similar items. Hope you enjoy and have a great Vday!
Portion sizes are one of the main reasons for weight gain. Many of us eat way more than our portion size when it comes to meals. A kitchen scale will help keep me on track and make me accountable for what I put in my body. This why I do not have to deprive myself of things I crave. It just allows me to be smarter about how much of it I eat and to cut back on my intake of unnecessary calories.

I am a big fan of neutral clothing because it is a blank canvas that you can add any color to. White jeans are a great staple to have in your closet because they can go with almost anything. You can dress them up with heels and the the right jewelry or wear them casually with a sweatshirt and boots. Check out how I styled my winter white below. I linked similar products. Hope you enjoy!
It is very hard sometime to get in your workout when your life is so busy and hectic. I would go a couple days with out making it to the gym and that would eventually spiral into a month. This New Year I decided that physical activity needed to be an important part of my lifestyle no matter how busy I am. So I wanted to find ways I could get my workout in at home even on my busiest days.
Below is some great workout equipment designed to make your at home workout easier. What is your favorite at home workout equipment?
Lastly I use the Go Sport It Pilate Ring in my at home workout. You can find it here. This allows you to do your yoga and pilate sessions at home. You can target your lower and upper body with this ring and also increase flexibility and posture. It is lightweight and portable so there is no excuses not to workout when traveling.

Twice a week I give myself my own sort spa facial. After I cleanse my face I use the Valentia External Youth Exfoliating Scrub, which can be found here . This scrub removes dead skin as well as, softens and brightens the skin. It is one of my favorite products and works really well. After that I use the Valentia Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask. This mask pulls out all the impurities in your face, reduces pore size, and tightens skins. I have tried a few clay mask and I like this one the best. It stays on for 10-20 minutes and leaves your skin feeling firm and clean. It made my pimple disappear by the next morning. You can find the mask here. In the winter when I am really feeling dry I follow the detox mask up with the Valentia Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask. I usually only do this once a week. This mask secures moisture, boost collagen, and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Not to leave out that your skin feels extra healthy and glowing afterwards. You can find the hydration mask here . I finish my facial with the Valentia True Glow Eye Cream. It nourishes and hydrates the skin around your eye area which reduces wrinkles and tightens skin. Lets face it as we all get older we need this. The eye cream can be found here . Then lastly I add a serum. The one I been using lately and love is the Naturél Commodity Vitamin C Super Youth Serum. It is a anti-wrinkle serum that brightens, hydrates and adds collagen. The vitamin C serum can be found here. It gives your skin an added layer of protection from the sun, and drying wind, as well as helps keep the moisture in. You should always add a serum to your skin before adding your favorite moisturizer to finish off your facial. What is your skincare routine and some of your favorite products?
