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..

                                                             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..

the Flintstones..

Sorry these photos are quite fuzzy.. I know the "flare trend" has been making its way back over the past few months I personally still prefer skinnys but I do have a few flares that I've kept in my closet so I decided to pull one out today.. what are your thoughts on flares ?
The tank mini dress i'm wearing (tucked in) reminds me of the Flintstones..since i've had it for over a year i'm thinking I might dye it orange to give it more of that appeal...hope you all are doing great and thank you for all the lovely comments I really enjoy reading them <3

Dressed in:
Nordstrom(BP)- hoody leather jacket
Forever 21- tank mini dress
Hudson- flare grey jeans
