Last week, I shared a sneak peek of this outfit and my.gawwddd you guys LOVED it. This look is one of my favorites because it’s not too dressy, and not too casual. It’s what I like to call an in-betweener. Kinda like me. 😉

Can we take a moment though to talk about this hat?! Remember that hat I purchased at a convenient store in San Francisco that George made fun of me for? Well, 2020AVE had the same hat in Olive…. I nearly lost my s***! Ah, it’s just so good, amiright or amiright?!

Any who, hope you all have a fantastic day. I’m linking everything I’m wearing or similar down below.

If you know me you know that I am constantly decorating my home. Whether it’s moving rugs around from one room to another (George is going to kill me one day), or moving accents pieces around.

I decided to share bits and pieces of my living room to my dining table area… that we have yet to properly have dinner on BTW (shrugging my shoulders). It’s still a work in progress – I say this only because I’m probably going to rearrange things again tomorrow. I’m just never satisfied, lol.

I hate to admit it but with my busy schedule, I often skip meals, which is the worst thing you can do. The worst part is that when I do eat, it’s all  junk food.

Being a blogger and always on the go, Eat Crateful has honestly helped me stay on track and make sure I get my meals in between my crazy-busy-days.

If you’re not familiar with Eat Crateful, allow me to fill you in… Eat Crateful is a gourmet meal delivery service created by top chef and celebrity nutritionist Cristina Bowerman. Their program allows you to select from their menu (Chef, Fit, Vegetarian, or Paleo), customize your meal plan, and schedule a delivery time that works best for you. You’re getting healthy and delicious meals delivered right to your doorstep. How amazing is that?!

Car Essentials

Today’s post is a little different but thought it was very important to share. As a blogger I’m always on-the-go, from one photoshoot to another, in between meetings and outfit changes in the car…. yup. Been there done that. Still do that. I realized how important it was to have certain items in my car while working. I decided to compile a list of items I feel are essential to have in my car, and also feel every blogger should as well.

  1. ‘Absolute’ Camisole: A simple camisole is so helpful when you’re constantly changing from one outfit to another, especially in the car.
  2. Cosmetic Makeup Bag Toiletry Travel KitTouching up in between photoshoots and/or meetings are a must. After all, you gotta look your best at all times. 😉
  3. Hair Ties Ponytail HoldersHelps keep your hair out of your face when you’re changing, plus these do not leave any creases in your hair.
  4. Trident Sugar Free GumNo brainer.
  5. ‘In the Wild’ ThrowAgain, very helpful when changing in the car.
  6. Titan Mall Plastic T-shirt BagsGotta keep the car clean.
  7. Band-Aid Brand Comfort-FlexAdhesive BandagesLadies and gents, we all have those shoes that are killer (literally), so having these around are major.
  8. Lil’ Lemon Drop Daily Detangler to Go BrushI cannot tell you how many times I’ve found myself regretting not having a hair brush in handy. There has been countless times when I see photos of myself where I can see all those loose hairs that make my eye twitch (insert eye-rolling emoji here), especially when I’m attending events. Not cute.
  9. ‘Detox’ Dry ShampooLIFE. CHANGING. Because no one likes oily/greasy hair. One of my favorite dry shampoos of all time. May I also recommend Batiste dry shampoo. That one is also my fave.
  10. Deodorant: When you look and smell good, you feel good. And that’s important… plus no one wants to be around someone who smells like onions. Barf!
  11. Mobile Power Charger from Pac2Go Portable ChargerAaaah… probably one of the most important things to carry in your car or purse, honestly.
  12. Travel Size Aloe Vera Spray for Face, Skin & HairYou gotta feel fresh, too.
  13. Aveeno Daily Moisturizing LotionBecause ashy elbows and knees are not cute.
  14. Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Lip BalmSo important to have, especially when changing lip colors for different outfit looks.
  15. Healthy SnacksWe all get super busy and forget to eat, which is so bad. I am guilty of this. We need to stay energize and take a moment to eat something or else we will crash, and feel very yucky.
  16. Dasani Purified WaterThis ties back to #15. Stay hydrated.
  17. Wet Ones Sensitive Skin Hand and Face WipesI have found myself wishing I had these or hand sanitizer.
  18. Makeup Remove Cloths: This ties back to #17.
  19. WizGear Universal Air Vent Magnetic Car Mount HolderHands-free is the way to be.

 

I hope you find this post very helpful. Feel free to share some of the items you carry around in your car.

I’ve partnered with Dove Hair to try the #SkipAWash Challenge with Dove Refresh + Care Detox & Purify Dry Shampoo, and the rumors are true! It’s beyond ah-mazing!!!

I have been wanting to try this for quite some time now, and am so happy I finally did. The Dove Dry Shampoo leaves my hair feeling so fresh and smelling delicious. I don’t wash my hair everyday (I usually go a day or two), and with this dry shampoo, I am able to skip an extra day or two without leaving visible residue. My hair feels clean and purified.

It is super easy to use. Here’s how to use the Dove Dry Shampoo:

Step 1: Shake can before and during use. Spray on lifted sections of dry hair, 8-12 inches from roots, where hair is most oily.

Step 2: Massage through roots to absorb oil evenly.

Step 3: Brush through for hair that is revived and clean.

Done and done!

Join the Dove Hair #SkipaWash Challenge and try Dove Refresh+Care Detox & Purify Dry Shampoo and get an extra day (or two!) out of your blowout. 🙂

The Best Ways to Find Deals on Ankle Boots

ankle boots, sale, deals, fall, season, online, shopping, boots,

ankle boots, sale, deals, fall, season, online, shopping, boots,

 

Whether you’re in dire need of new ankle boots to replace your worn soles or simply need a style update, shopping online is one of the most convenient ways to get a new pair or two. Making shoe purchases online can also save you a lot of money because of all the discounts and special offers you can get. Here are five of the best ways to find the best deals on ankle boots online:

Check out coupon sites.

If you want to slash up to 75% off the cost of your purchase, there’s no better way to do it than using coupon codes for ankle boots. Coupon sites offer products and services from top brands at discounted prices and you can even score special offers such as free delivery or a free pair of shoes. Voucher codes are great for those who want to stay in style and have trendy ankle boots but don’t have the budget to buy them at full price. You can get voucher codes for Public Desire by visiting Total Discounts and then you just need to apply the code when you check out. Remember though, it’s important to act quickly, as coupon codes have an expiration date and you have to make your purchase while they’re still valid.

Visit retailer or manufacturer sites.

Shoe brands usually have post-season or clearance sales on their products, so it would be a good idea to bookmark their websites and watch out for sales. It may involve a lot of waiting, but your efforts will surely pay off when you get your coveted ankle boots on sale. As with coupon codes, when buying at clearance sales you’ll have to move fast to make sure the pair you want in your size is still in stock. Many brands also provide discounts for students at uni, an incentive you don’t want to let go of. To get notified about clearance sales and exclusive deals, join the brand’s online community, subscribe to the newsletter or follow them on social media so you can receive promo announcements right away.

Browse around online marketplaces.

Online marketplaces such as like eBay offer items that are new or have never been used, pre-loved or slightly used. Sellers on these sites let potential buyers haggle or pay the listed price upfront. If you don’t mind wearing slightly used shoes, these online marketplaces are great places to find a good, affordable pair. If you’re hunting for ankle boots that aren’t sold in shops anymore, someone on eBay probably has them up for sale. It may require a bit of hard work, but you’ll surely score a great deal.

Consider clothing and shoe swaps.

Swapping clothes and shoes with other trendy folks is another way to find ankle boots online. There are websites that provide a platform for people who would rather swap clothes and shoes than sell. If you have items you no longer wear or use such as knee-high boots or a coat in the wrong colour, someone online may want them in exchange for ankle boots and a matching jacket. Swapping online is usually free or may involve a small fee for shipping but it’s definitely a sure-fire way of finding ankle boots at a low price or at no cost at all.

I’ve been a fan of the Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant since I was first introduced to the product earlier this year, so when I was invited to attend the Simply Stylist Session with Dove, I immediately cancelled my plans that Saturday.

For those of you who are not familiar with the Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant, it is amazing! Life changing, actually. It goes on instantly dry, cares for your skin, and keeps you feeling fresh and confident throughout the day – up to 48 hours. It’s perfect if you’re always on the go like myself.

The Simply Stylist session went on from 11 am to 2 pm. We got to listen to Jamie Chung and Dawn McCoy speak about beauty tips, life and career goals. Listening to them both speak was very inspiring, and motivating to continue to pursue my career goals. I also learned a new hair trick that I am excited to try very soon.
