Hey everyone, this is the first outfit post featuring something from my boutique. This gorgeous mint dress is available in sizes medium and large, small is sold out! The color of this dress is a very vibrant mint. I absolutely adore the high-low cut of this dress, this cut is everywhere right now. I was very excited to style some looks for you guys using some of the gorgeous and trendy pieces from the shop. I will leave all the links for you as well!
I think the dress goes great with gold. I put it together with some nude heels from Zara that have a gold platform. The bangles are from love culture. It makes it so glamorous!

Hey guys! This is something new that I’m trying with my blog. I’ve been wanting to get you guys to know me better, a big part of my life is my family and what we do together. Just like my love for fashion and make up is a big part of my life, so are these moments I share with my loved ones. Enjoy!
Our first stop was in Brentwood Village. Where we ate the most amazing sliders ever! Those things were so delicious. It was at a restaurant called Roast!
After our lunch we headed to the California Science Center. BTW, I didn’t get to put my outfit out there but I put a printer top with some leopard print sandals just to see if it would word together. I actually loved it! I love when you can mix prints! The museum was very enjoyable, especially for the little ones!
We see it every weekend, the girls partying their lives away, the drunk twerking pictures, and well the mommy’s that stay home posting pictures of their kids. Whether you’re a blogger or just your average schmo, you’ve probably looked at another person’s instagram pictures and thought wow they seem happy. On the other hand, you might’ve looked at someone’s instagram and thought wow they seriously need some therapy. What can I tell you about how you can’t really know someone through pictures? Well let’s start off with an example of my own life. I post pictures of my son and daughter, when they are dressed adorable and when they’ve just done something cute. I might not be as reluctant to snap a picture of when my son is telling me he doesn’t love me because I won’t give him my cellphone. I probably won’t take a snapshot of how mad I get when my daughter opens the cabinet doors and starts taking out everything she can see. (FYI: I just purchased baby proof door locks from Target as this was becoming a never ending nightmare for me). Lastly, I probably won’t show you a picture of me and my fiancé yelling at each other for whatever reason we’ve decided to start fighting. The other day it was because I didn’t close the lid of the damn apple juice. We usually like to show our happy moments, the moments that make other people think “hey their living the good life”.
With that, I sometimes look at popular bloggers and think they are living the life, traveling and wearing all the latest trends. When you think about it they’re really not going to show us their downs, (at least most of them). Same goes with people most of us don’t post ugly pictures of ourselves, or even sad moments in our lives. This is because we don’t want people to have something to hold against us. We want people to feel envious of us. I remember back in high school I would shoot myself dead before I ever posted a picture of myself online without makeup, or not looking extra perfect. I had a girl that didn’t like me once tell me I didn’t look like how I did online, and I said to myself it’s probably because I don’t try and look perfect all the time in real life. I’m actually pretty laid back, and when I take that extra time I will and when I don’t, well I don’t. What I’m trying to get through to you guys right now is don’t be jealous of the girl who takes beautiful pictures of herself, because hey she probably wakes up without makeup looking just as bad as you feel when you wake up. Don’t be envious of the “happy couple” you see pictures of, they fight too. Don’t be jealous of the lives you see through Instagram, it’s just pictures, you never really know what happens five seconds after that picture is taken. Be happy with your life, and don’t compare yourselves to others.
I’m not trying to say I am unhappy in my life. I’m very happy, and I do think I am lucky to feel the way I feel, but just like you, I feel down and I wake up feeling ugly ass shit sometimes! (Excuse my language, but I’m trying to blunt). I just thought I’d let you know
What do you guys think of me posting more posts like these?
Lately, I’ve been raving about my newest favorite mascara which is Maybelline’s “The Rocket” mascara! If you’ve tried it already you must leave me your thoughts on it because I’m really curious on how other people have been liking it. What impressed me the most about this mascara is the other mascara it reminds me of. If you’ve tried Benefits “They’re Real” mascara you know that it’s unbelievable. I think “The Rocket” is a great dupe for it, so if you’ve been looking for a less expensive version of it I think this mascara would be great for you. It does a great job at volumizing and lengthening. Here are some before and after pictures, I tried only one coat of mascara in this picture. If you try it you must tell me, am I lying or is it awesome?
