Motivation

Happy Summer! It is beyond hot here in the bluegrass state, almost unbearable. How are you holding up where you are? I started this post as a fitness motivation post for myself and then quick realized I that I  honestly just needed to ask for motivation from you all. Truth is I find it hard to go to work, go to the gym and come home to work on my other businesses (blog, plant nite, wedding stuff), as well as do household things (cook, clean, laundry). How do you all do it all? How do  you keep it straight? With the wedding being less then 100 days away I guess I am asking for suggestions. What works for you?

Suggestions on:
1.Quick and easy workout routines (30 mins or so)
 2. Daily schedules on household chores (day you do each task and for how long)
3. Business ladies: How do you work a full-time job and run your other businesses?
4. Brides: When you are 100 days out from your wedding what task do you suggest to make sure everything is organized and ready?
I honestly think this post could help many who are in need motivation or ideas. If you have any suggestions bring them on! Also I am speaking my workout into existence with this cute athleisure outfit, shop similar ones below.

Bachelorette Party Dress

Shop: Dress (One, Two) | Heels | Lipstick | Bracelet | Earrings

Next month I am preparing to head to my bachelorette party in one of my favorite cities, NYC, with a few of my best girls. I wanted to do something a little different. I have been to Vegas multiple times and knew I didn’t want to go there. I am not a huge beach person, so Miami was out of the question (not because I don’t like water or sand, but because I am allergic to the sun, which is a pain).  I am a city girl and what is one of the the best cities in the world? NYC of course!

In anticipation of this upcoming weekend I am already planning out outfits to wear. The first one is this sequins dress, which is perfect for the party, and that is when I attend to wear it. This will be my going out dress. Comfortable, a statement in itself; it is a great dress for a night out on the town with the girls. I paired it with sliver heels and a red lip to give a little pop of color. Looking forward to sharing more of my NYC looks. Shop this one below!

White Dresses for Bridal Shower

Dresses: One | Two | Three | Four | Five | Six 
Accessories: Necklace | Clutch | Heels | Lipstick 

If you are a bride you have to prepare yourself for all the bridal showers heading your way. It is an exciting time to say the least, but what do you wear? White of course! You definitely have to stand out as the bride. So let me suggest a dress. Right now is the perfect time to find one. This season there are so many stylish dresses. You should definitely stock up for the the multiple showers, bachelorette party, and rehearsal dinner.

The dress I have on in this post (which I have had for awhile) is perfect for a bridal shower. It is sleek, two-tone (but mostly white), and the perfect length. I added some color with this turquoise necklace and brick color lipstick and a bit of pattern with leopard heels. I finished the outfit with a taupe clutch, which with be on rotation all summer.

Makeup Monday: Pop Beauty Brows

                      
                                 Shop: Brow Duette | Peak Performance Brow | YouTube Video
Happy Makeup Monday!! Today I am working with POP Beauty to bring you their new brow essentials. Who doesn’t love a nice arched brow? I can’t think of anyone. So that is why POP Beauty has created the Brow Duette and the Peak Performance Brow. Two different products to help you shape the perfect brow. Both of these come in three different shades so that they can match your eyebrow color. They are easy to use and last all day. These two products have become an important part of my everyday makeup routine. Check out my review below or on YouTube here.

Friday Feels

I need a tropical vacation ASAP, but since that is not happening I can at least pretend and dress like I am on an island, right??  How do you dress on vacay? My look is usually simple and relaxed with with pops of color and unique accessories, like I did with this outfit here. A black tank goes well with almost anything and white jeans most definitely stand out, particularly during the summer’s lush landscape. I added some color with these coral tassel earrings which I am in love with and will be wearing all summer. Then can we talk about these shoes? They are perfect since I am pretty much the Plant Lady of Louisville! Lol! Did you know the floral meaning of Cactus is longevity and endurance. Something we all need right?!?
