March Favorites

Makeup, Hair and Skincare Favorites
Shea Moisture Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
I wish I discovered the virtues of coconut oil a long time ago. All the struggles that I had trying to find the best lotion or moisturizer could have been eliminated with good old natural coconut oil. I love that it just melts in my hand and smells divine.

YSL Black Opium Dry Oil For Body and Hair
Black Opium is one of my favorite fragrances, so having it in oil form has been a life send. I like to pair the oil with the liquid fragrance to guarantee the scent that last all day.

Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm
Probably the most enjoyable thing at the end of the day other than putting on my pajamas and relaxing for the night is taking off my makeup. Clinique's cleansing balm is easy to use, I just slather it all on my face and off comes my makeup. I usually follow that up by cleansing my face with the Simple face wash and I'm ready for bed.

Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant
Spray on antiperspirant has never been anything that I was willing to try, I thought it would be a sticky and hard to use mess. This month I decided to take the plunge and pick up the Dove dry spray, after using it for the first time my opinion has definitely changed. The Dove dry spay comes in a lot of different scents that last all day, I won't be going back to traditional stick deodorant anytime soon.

Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Hair Serum
The Jamaican black castor oil range from Shea Moisture is my ultimate favorite of all the Shea Moisture ranges. The serum from this range has been a game changer. Keeping my hair moisturized can be a struggle for me but this serum with its easy to use applicator and amazing smell make it a must have in my hair regime.

NYX Wonder Stick
I must admit that makeup is not my strong suite, so whenever there is a tool or new product that can make my makeup application easier it becomes a must have for me. I love the NYX brand, I have had a lot of their products as my favorites in the past months. The Wonder Stick makes contouring super easy I just apply to where I want to contour and blend it out. The highlighting part of the stick is nice but it lacks the shimmer or glow you would get from other highlighters.

Fashion Favorites
MICHAEL Michael Kors Daniela Crossbody Bag
I wrote a review on the MK Daniela on my last blog post, with the short time that I've had the bag this month it has easily become my favorite of the month. In my review I wrote how the bag fit all my daily essentials plus more and that still rings true. I've carried it to work everyday this week and have loved the flexibility that it has given me. I have my eye on a blush pink version of the bag that would be perfect for spring.

ASOS Curve Slouch Marl Wide Leg Pants
Comfort has become queen for me lately, so when I saw these ASOS pants I had to have them. These pants are made soft jersey, they have a stretchy waistband and wide legs. They are a little long if you are on the shorter side, but despite that they feel like your wearing pajama pants all day which always gets a thumbs up from me.

Merona Kona Backless Mule Loafers
Loafer mules are huge right now, basically every brand has their own version of them. The Gucci Princetown loafer mules have been my favorite version of the trend, but with Gucci comes the Gucci price tag $$$. I happened upon these super similar mules on a trip to Target, you get the look at the fraction of the price.

Movie, Television & Music Favorites 
Beauty and The Beast
Beauty and The Best was a beautiful fairy tale that made me desperately want to find my Beast and live happily ever after 😊. As I watched the movie I found myself constantly smiling at how amazing the movie was. I loved that the movie took the time to show Belle and Beast actually falling in love. The new song Evermore is my hands down favorite song from the whole movie(I love Dan Stevens voice!), I've been playing it on repeat for weeks. I thought all the characters were well cast and helped bring a decades old fairy tale to life in the most beautiful of ways.

Feud: Bette and Joan
Feud is an FX docudrama about the epic rivalry between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford during the 1960's. I love the history in the show, Bette and Joan were epic divas who worked hard in an industry that at times seemed to shun them. The show is a shade-fest joyride that keeps me wanting for more.

My favorite movie this month was Logan, I love comic book movies so Logan was right up my alley. Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart were amazing, the movie was a tour de force of emotions with Jackman giving a performance of a lifetime as in his final bow as Wolverine. I really enjoyed the nonstop action and loved the familial relationship between Wolverine, Professor X, and X-23. I thought Logan was a thrilling movie that solidifies Jackman's legacy as Wolverine.

I've been looking forward to new music from Daley for a long time. His 2014 album Days & Nights was one of my favorite albums of that year, I remember constantly playing it on repeat. His new single Until The Pain Is Gone features the incredible singer-songwriter Jill Scott, its a beautiful soulful record that highlights Daley's amazing voice. I can't wait for the new album that should be right around the corner. 

ZHU's 2016 album, Generationwhy, was one of my favorite albums from last year I even added to my best of the year 2016 music favorites. His new single Nightcrawler highlights all the things that I love about ZHU's music, he can never do wrong in my book. 

I discovered Goldlink last year when I happened upon his song Spectrum from his 2015 album, "And After That, We Didn't Talk". After listening to the rest of the songs on that album, Goldlink quickly became one of my favorite rappers. His new album, At What Cost, was an album that I was eagerly anticipating especially after the single Meditation ft Jazmine Sullivan & KAYTRANADA was released. I love every song in the album but my top favorites are Hands On Your Knees, Meditation, Summatime, Roll Call, Some Girl, and Pray Everyday (Survivors Guilt).

MICHAEL Michael Kors Daniela Crossbody Bag

The Michael Kors Daniela crossbody bag has been on my wishlist for awhile now. I was finally able to purchase the bag on sale last week. Of all the crossbody bags that I have in my collection the Daniela is hands down my favorite. The Daniela easily fits all of my daily essentials with room for more. For my day job I usually carry a medium sized tote to work, but the Daniela has become an easy downsized alternative for me. The Daniela has quickly become a favorite of mine I would really like this bag in a bright color perfect for Spring. 

The Michael Kors Daniela is made of saffiano leather the exterior features gold tone hardware, the Michael Kors logo plaque, and an adjustable leather and chain crossbody strap. The Daniela has magnetic snap closure and one exterior back snap pocket. The interior is fully lined and features one zipper compartment and two large compartments. The first large compartment features an additional slip pocket and the second large compartment has a wall of six card slots inside. The Daniela has a height of 6 inches and a width of 8 inches. The crossbody strap as 22-24 1/2 inch drop.

Spring Lookbook

With the change of season comes the perfect opportunity to shed the layers and change up your wardrobe. Here are eight looks for spring that I think will make the days of spring even better. 

I'm loving the Lydell NYC and Unique Vintage pins on the H&M denim dress in look 1. The pop of yellow with the Delpozo peplum top in look 2 goes great with the Gucci Sylvie floral bag.  

The ruffles in the Alice + Olivia top and the MSGM jeans in look 3 are my favorites, ruffles make any thing flirty and girly. I'm obsessed with the Prada feather trimmed pants and I love the splash of orange from the Chloe Faye bag, Tory Burch watch and Kate Spade earrings in look 4. 

In look 5 the J.Crew jumpsuit and the Gianvito Rossi bow flats are so cute together and I'm obsessed with the Dior J'Adior chain bag. With Dior at the top of my favorites list right now, the Dior "We Should All Be Feminist" t-shirt in look 6 makes a bold statement that we all should live by. 

Prada is another brand that's hot right now, I'm loving the new Prada Plex bag and the pink h&m skirt in look 7. The colorful Alexandre Birman sandals in look 8 are amazing statement pieces and as usual Louis Vuitton has my heart, especially with this Louise chain bag.

Spring Fashion Essentials

Today is the first day of Spring! As a Fall/Winter lover I am sad to see to those season's go, but I am excited for the warmer weather to come (side note: if we could skip Summer and go straight to Fall that would be great 😏). With the start of Spring I made a Spring fashion guide with some of the bags, shoes, sunglasses, tee's, bottoms, dresses and rompers that I think are must haves for Spring.

My Favorite Spring 2017 Fashion Trends

It will be officially Spring next week, with the warmer weather on its way I picked my 5 favorite trends for Spring 2017. For Spring, pink and yellow are two colors that I'm super exited to incorporate in my daily looks. The ruffles and stripe trends make great statements pieces to any look your rocking. Finally the floral trend may be a obvious one for Spring, but you can add new life to it by rocking a head to toe floral look. 
I love that the color pink is on trend for Spring 2017. Pink is my absolute favorite color, so I'll gladly be rocking all things pink this Spring. 

Ruffles make any outfit instantly cute and flirty. Ruffles might be my favorite trend for Spring, they are super easy to incorporate in you Spring looks and can easily match with all the other Spring trends. 

Bold and bright stripes are major statement pieces for Spring 2017. While stripes can be a little intimidating to wear, this trend encourages boldness weather you like to wear just one striped piece in your outfit or go all out with a head to toe striped outfit. 

The color yellow screams Spring|Summer and it's a color that can instantly brighten your day. Like the pink and ruffle trends yellow can easily be added to your #OOTD. 

The words Spring and floral go hand in hand, you really can't go wrong with any thing floral during this time of the year. Just like with the stripe trend you can easily add a single piece to your look or go all out floral to incorporate this trend to your Spring looks.
