Happy Tuesday friends & happy short week! (at least for me) I’m getting extra excited for this upcoming weekend since we have Monday off and Wes and I are taking a mini vacay to the beach! I don’t know about y’all but after the past few weeks, this vacay is much needed. I could say the same about this glorious break in weather we are getting in NC! It’s got me itching for sweater weather and fall temps which is why I’m starting today by sharing this killer bow top with you.
“Whoaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa we’re half way there…” I honestly cannot believe how fast this week is going! Does anyone else wake up with Bon Jovi in their head on random Wednesdays?! Maybe not, but I know one thing most women get pumped about and it’s a great ruffle neck floral dress. I can honestly say this is my favorite dress to date and I am beyond obsessed with it.
Happy Monday y’all – we made it to another one and I’m a little more excited to start my week with a fun ruffle dress. Mondays are particularly hard for me to get going since I am usually still on a weekend high. I find it a little easier to get motivated when I feel confident and put in a little more outfit effort. Today’s ruffle dress is one of my summer favorites and also one of my looks from TBSCon a few weeks ago.
In a saturated market, it’s really hard to know what the real standout products are. As a beauty industry veteran and true skeptic of the market and it’s high level of competition, I approach each new product as a gimmick or a flop until proven otherwise. Now I’m not as horrid as those first two lines make me sound and I have, on multiple occasions, been surprised and proven wrong by many truly good products. But we have to admit, the beauty industry knows our buying power (men and women – hello men’s grooming trend) and every brand wants you to catapult them to the leader ranks by using any means necessary. “12 X fuller lashes”, “look 40 years younger”, “face-lift in a jar” – I’ve heard them all and I don’t believe every eye cream is going to eliminate my dark circles, lines and puffs all in one fell swoop of the finger. But this is one of those times where I found a winner and a product I truly enjoy and see a difference with.
Good morning everyone! I hope you guys had a great weekend and have had your week get off to a good start! Today I’m finally recapping my amazing trip to Chicago for #tbscon. I want to start by prefacing that over a week later, I’m still on a high and am so energized by all the amazing people I met and the things I learned.
