BRIGHTen the day.

had a great weekend with my beau.. Sunday i wore this tank ahh.. i love the color found it at forever for about 10 bucks.. its the perfect neon coral orange looks even brighter in person !

Okay so I told you I have been having some trouble falling asleep lately.. and I've tried out the bath and body works Sleep mist for a few days now I will say it smells so good and it has a little calming affect because of the lavender.. Does it put you sleep not so much BUT  the calming relaxing wonderful scent it gives ..i will continue using it every night <3

assorted bangles & MK watch


today I went to the beach to bask in the sunshine..
adore the scent of Hawaiian Tropic haha

a few days ago I bottled up some sand bought a few candles
and now have this at my bedside..cozy.

mixed metals.

ahh.. these past few days have been gorgeous! i love wearing hats with plain tanks bought this one at Forever quite a while ago..I never used to like mixing silver and gold but over the past year i've come to LOVE IT !

I have been having trouble sleeping the past few nights so I went over to Bath & Body Works today and picked up Sleep Pillow Mist in Lavender Vanilla its part of their Aromatherapy collection. Has anyone tried it ? I'll let you know my take on it in a few days..

                                   Found this belt at Gap for like $7 a few years ago love the color..

                                                   Kenneth Cole watch, Forever 21 Bangles
                              I like the band on this watch it reminds me of a "grandpa" watch, if you will..

lovely NEON.

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend and are off to good start for the week..

Feather earring I made.. I've purchased a few so I decided to make one now it's my favorite.

                                                             My beautiful little cousin..
China Glaze Shocking Pink (neon) 70293
                         Polish of the weekend which i'm sure will be my go to polish throughout summer.

I took the hanging logo charm off my MK bag because I either like to wear it plain or with a fox tail.. I loved it but just not on a purse so I turned it into a bracelet..
I just had this cord left over but I am going to be switching it out all the time..
with a braided fabric, diff color cords, etc..

looking faux a deal..

Went thrifting today and found this lovely faux fur jacket for $15 & a tan clutch for $6 both from Goodwill ! I also dropped off some clothes at a consignment store did pretty well with that.. so if you have clothes/shoes you never wear take them in.. I got over $100 cash for only 5items, not to shabby! Hope you all have a very blessed weekend.

a hidden gem..

Yesterday my "sister" Bree and I headed to a new thrift store .. it was totally different indoor and outdoor almost like a house filled with items in the front yard, inside and backyard. They had old school skates to flower pots, clothes, sports equipment, hats, blankets, you name it they have it.
I found Bree a leather school bag and she found me a chain purse/clutch !

my new fave thrift store..

beachside stop.

I also went to Ulta last night and picked up 2 new lipsticks..
If you have an Ulta I printed a coupon from their website $5 off any $10 purchase, great deal.

Revlon Moon Drops Lipstick - 712 Hot Coral Creme (green cap)
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick- 677 Siren Creme

Siren is my new favorite ! I have been on the hunt for an orange lipstick and have now found the perfect one. I like it better than MACs Morange for the fact that it seems more orange coral on my lips rather than orange red..
