So while I’ve been busy and off and not blogging as often as I need too, I know sorry you guys, I’ve actually found and been focusing on finding my sort of style. My new style is a lot of preppy and business casual. Something about a blazer and a good pair of boots/booties just makes me get heart eyes. Sooo, I figured why not just make a post or a list of all of the best outfits and pieces that I could find for you guys and obviously for myself too to help you find your perfect pieces to put together the absolute best outfits.
If you want to find your style or just your styles perfect pieces for that perfect outfit, just keep reading.

Favorite Blazers.
Now one of my absolute favorite things and pieces in my new style is definitely a good blazer. Honestly, these look so good with any and everything almost so I have to show you guys some of my absolute favorite blazers.

Favorite Trousers.
One thing that is new to me are definitely trousers. They aren’t the cutest until you pair them with the right top, blazer, and pair of shoes with a good bag. Here are some of my favorite pairs and styles.

Favorite Dresses.
Anyone who really knows me, knows I am absolutely obsessed with dresses. They are just super girly, super cute, and can actually be very businessy/preppy. So, here are some of my favorite dresses and picks for a business casual/preppy outfit and style.

Favorite Skirts.
One thing about dressing more preppy/business casual is there are a ton of ways to wear pencil skirts. Although they can seem horrid, they really aren’t you just have to know how to wear them. Here are some of my picks.

Favorite Pant Suits & Jump Suits.
Although I haven’t officially purchase a pant suit yet, I have purchased my first jump suit and it is super comfy and way adorable so I highly recommend these with a good blazer and some good shoes. You won’t regret it. Also, if it seems too plain just add in some cute accessories and it will look absolutely great.

Favorite Shoes.
We all love shoes, but sometimes it gets a bit tricky with these outfits. Here are some of my picks that go really well with these pieces.

Favorite Bags.
Every girl needs a good handbag to keep all her necessities in. Here are my favorite picks that also all look very well with business casual outfits and look very professional.

Get to Know Me | The Girl Behind The Blog

Get to Know Me | The Girl Behind The Blog.
learn about me girl behind blogging and lifestyle blog

I’ve been writing on my blog for a while now and the only thing you guys really know about me is what I wrote in my bio so I figured it was time to give you guys some info about me!

My favorite things are obviously writing and blogging as you can tell because of how much I write about how passionate I am about my blogging and what I do so that you guys already knew I guess! I’m 5’1 exactly, yes I know, going to be 20 in December which seems unreal, blonde that used to be strawberry blonde :/. I’m a Pretty Little Liars and Selena Gomez obsessed fan from time to time and could probably talk about the both for days and never stop, I also like Ariana Grande and The Chainsmokers and occasionally country music because I grew up on that. Another thing you should know is that music is my life and I’m actually a pretty decent singer but the only people that have heard me sing and probably ever will is my little brother which is 7 and it was years ago that he heard me sing and my dog that lives back at my Mom’s place. I was born in Hattiesburg, MS and raised in Laurel, MS and went to school up until 10th grade and then ended up getting my GED because I stayed sick so I couldn’t finish school. Then I got to go to college earlier than anyone else I knew and earlier than I was supposed to which was pretty cool!
Few other things about me is that I have pretty severe asthma and allergies and whenever I was in about 6th grade I got my first case of pneumonia and it was so bad they had to hospitalize me for a week and gave me a breathing treatment every 2 hours… so annoying. I thought I would honestly never get out of the hospital. Before that happened, I went to a lung specialist in Jackson, MS and he found a spot on my lung in my left lower lobe and told me it was a mucus plug and if it didn’t clear up he would have to go in and vacuum it out. Afterwards, I was hospitalized a couple more times up until 9th grade for the last time with severe pneumonia in both lungs and my left lung collapsed. They gave me tons of stronger breathing treatments and eventually I finally got out of course but it was a nightmare because around the time we found out my favorite Aunt I was named after had stage 4 brain cancer and was dying so it was all a nightmare of a time.
When we lost my Aunt in 2013 I went through a deep depression because we were so close and it tore me to pieces to lose her. Honestly, my head was out of whack and I done a lot of crazy things. Once I started my GED classes in 2015 I was much better and had changed a ton. I was finally okay and happy even though I did have my moments.

Another thing about me is that I have anxiety and depression. The anxiety always causes my depression because I have social anxiety and a few others and it’s very annoying. Ninety percent of the time I’ll just lie in bed and overthink every little thing from my anxiety and end up depressed for days over it. It’s a nightmare but I’m trying to fight it without any sort of medications because I don’t want to turn into someone I’m not. So I fight it and try to be the most optimistic person alive. I’m also another one of those people who can fake a smile like a professional whenever I really feel like I’m falling apart on the inside.

Those are some of the things that my parents don’t even know themselves about me. Things that I can’t talk to anyone else about but I can somehow write about it. Music and writing takes me to a different place and level and I can’t explain it. It’s like whenever I listen to my music and I just write it all out I’m on a different planet and I absolutely love it. It helps my anxiety and everything so much that it’s unreal. That’s one of the main reasons why I started a blog and why I love writing and blogging so much. I’ve always written things whenever I had too much on my mind but I never actually done anything with it up until now and I’m so glad I can now.

Anyways, that’s all I can think of writing for now you guys so I hope you enjoyed reading this and finally getting to know me! If you have any other questions you would like to know or if you just want to tell me about yourself also please feel free to comment and I would be glad to hear your info also! Thanks so much for reading as always you guys! J

At Home Spa Night | Pamper Night Routine

7:30 AM
At Home Spa Night / Pamper Night Routine.
at home spa night and pamper routine

This post hasn’t been written in a while so I figured why not write it for you guys! One of my favorite things to do after a long day is to just have myself a good pamper night and just relax and get refreshed again. There are tons of things I like to do a good pamper night so if you would like to know my routine and have your own, just keep reading! J

©       The first thing I like to do is just grab all of the things I will need in the bath or when I get out. The things I like to get are, portable speaker to jam out because music is the best especially during a spa night, my phone just in case I want to change the song or watch some YouTube or something, all of my moisturizers which are usually already in the bathroom, some nail polish and remover and nail clippers, hair brush and products I like to add to my hair after I get out, clothes duh, a good bubble bath (bath and body works is my favorite), and some candles or at least one to light while I relax.

©       Once I’ve got everything I need I just start running my water and add my bubble bath. My current favorite is Paris Amour by Bath and Body Works because it just smells so good and girly which is totally me!
©       While my waters running I like to light some candles, wash my face, and just go ahead and brush my teeth to get it over with before I get in the tub.

©       Once the tub is full I just like to obviously get in and I usually just lie back and relax while I jam to some of my favorite music. Usually, I’ll go with some bubble bath playlists on Spotify or just some type of relaxing music and from time to time I’ll go to country because I don’t know I just really like country or I’ll sing along to Selena Gomez or Ariana Grande because I mean why not right?

©       After I’ve had a good soak in the tub for at least about 30 minutes I’ll just shave my legs and everything and just wash myself really well and then I’ll turn on the shower and rinse off everything and just wash my hair like normal just to get all of the bubbles and everything out.

©       After I’m done in the tub I just get out dry off like normal and just use my FAVORITE lotion which is EOS and I have the full set which comes with the body lotion, chap stick, and the hand lotion and I usually like to use the hand one on my face just because it doesn’t seem to break me out somehow.

©       Then I’ll just moisturize all over my legs arms and everywhere just to make sure I’m completely pampered up because moisturizing is essential on a pamper night but especially after shaving.

©       After I finish with that I’ll just put on deodorant (obv) and throw on my clothes I have laid out which is usually something super comfy and my big t-shirts are my favorites for nights like this because they are soo comfy and just throw on either some joggers or some pajama shorts ( I have a TON. )

©       Once I have all of that done I’ll just usually remove all of my old nail polish and just cut and repaint my nails because I probably haven’t in weeks and pamper nights are the best nights to do this in my opinion. I’m not the greatest at painting my nails you guys, not gonna lie.

©       Then once my nails are painted and looking cute, I’ll wash my hands because feet aren’t the cleanest. Then I head into the kitchen and if it’s still pretty early I’ll make myself some coffee or if it’s later I’ll make myself some tea.

©       After I have that made I’ll just usually lay in the bed and either write some blog posts, get on social media, YouTube, read some other blogs, or just read a good magazine and watch TV.

So that was all for my pamper night/spa night routine you guys! Hope you all enjoyed reading and that you also have a great pamper night yourself. Comment some of your favorite things to do on your pamper/spa night routines I would love to hear! Thank you for reading and check back soon for more. J

Life Update: Visiting Home + Moving Back Soon?

7:30 AM
Life Update: Visiting Home + Moving Back Soon?

So I know I haven’t been posting too much lately like normal but my heads been in a weird place. First off, I want to apologize for being so behind on everything. I’ve been a little busy figuring things out, planning, and being homesick.

My boyfriend and I actually recently got back from visiting MS which is our home state and visiting family and friends and it was just so nice to see everyone because I’ve missed them so much. Honestly, it surprised me but I even missed the town and the memories there. I used to want to get out for so long but now I just am so ready to be back home since we visited. Plus, leaving family behind again isn’t the simplest thing to do, at all.
So, my boyfriend recently got a new job working two weeks on and two weeks off and I would just be stuck in the house alone all the time where I have no idea who anyone is in this town yet so we decided to just move back. Around August or the end of August at least we will be heading out of New Mexico. This is a great state I have to admit, especially all of the sunshine and no humidity. The thing is though, it’s not home. We’ve been here this long and it still can’t feel like home, because my heart knows where my home really truly is.

Mississippi isn’t my favorite place in the world, but it means a lot to me and that’s all that matters. My life is making some changes but I promise I’m going to try and keep up to date with my blog and not get AS behind as I have lately. These changes aren’t finished changing yet, but hopefully, they will all turn out to be great and good changes. Honestly, happiness is my ultimate goal and I haven’t been 110% happy lately with a lot of things or with a lot of people.

My life needs a huge change or turnaround and moving home will be the first step towards it all. Also, I’m going to try to work on being healthier and taking better care of myself.

Lately I’ve battled with my anxiety and have actually done very well at that part. Finally came out of my shell with my singing in front of others which is definitely nice to not just sing to myself all the time. I just feel like it’s time for a change in my life to make things better and me happier. Some might call that selfish, I call it trying to make better for my life. I’ve spent way too long hiding in my shell and not showing my talents or saying how I truly feel.

Anyways, thank you guys for reading and sticking around while I’ve been gone. Like I said though I’ve just been trying to find my 110% true self and what I need to do to be happy with my life. Taking huge steps, risks, and finally living life is what I’m trying to do. But thank you guys for reading and I have some great posts coming up soon, promise!
