Christmas Wishlist (All Inclusive)

Christmas Wishlist (All Inclusive)

Last week I did a post on what I wanted for Christmas this year as far as beauty products goes. I do want a lot of makeup (always), and I’ve been asked a few times what other stuff I want. And I honestly answered that I want boring things. I don’t like paying for boring stuff, so for Christmas it would be awesome to get like, a gas card. Or some other bill that I don’t appreciate paying for. That’s what I would like because it would help me for the rest of the year. But I’ve been told by certain family members that I’m cheap. And that I should want stuff that’s more fun. So I thought I’d make ANOTHER list of FUN stuff I want. So here goes:

I love this. I’ve really been loving the sweatshirt and jeans look this season. Pullovers are easy to style. I’ve always loved graphic tops, so having both in one piece is ideal. The orange and the red is really warm toned for this season, but I think I’d use this for the awkward transition between winter to spring.

No matter how hard I try, I just can’t get over roses. I know the whole rose thing is kind of overkill because of the embroidery trend but I love them so much.

This cross body bag is so adorable. It’s not exactly functional, but it’s really chic. It is like a suitcase, which would make me feel like the business woman I aspire to be. WANT. WANT. WANT.

Does this sweater not look right out of the 80’s? I need it. It looks itchy, but that’s a situation I’m willing to handle if it means that I can look like a character out of Stranger Things.

I love Tommy Hilfiger clothing. I don’t own any. Yet. But maybe that will change.

And beanies. I usually do not ever wear beanies. But that’s quickly changing. And this beanie needs to be on my head from now until summer.

The female body is a work of art. I need all three of these living in perfect harmony on the top shelf of my room with little succulent plants nesting nicely within.

Line art is a current fav of mine. What can I say?

I would like this as a phone case. I have a galaxy s5. The artist is named Cassandra and she has really cute drawings. This one is especially my favorite, so I’d like to have it on my phone, with me everywhere.

And yeah, that’s basically it. I don’t know if I’m easy to shop for but I always think I am. Click on any of these pictures above to be redirected to their store site. I don’t own any of these pictures.

If you weren’t sure what you’ve been wanting for Christmas I hope this post gave you some ideas. I hope to be posting some this week, but I’m taking it easy this month. I’ll write more on that soon.

Have a great weekend. Keep the Holiday Cheer going. Until next time,

 

 

 

 

 

 

Good Friday Thoughts 

Happy Friday everyone! Good Friday at that. Which means Easter is right around the corner. And since this is my lifestyle post and God influences my life everyday, AND Easter is coming, what better time to give a little glory and praise?

Some people have very differing opinions and practices when it comes to their God, which is totally awesome. I personally just call myself a believer and don’t categorize myself under a specific type of religion. I do lean more towards Christian views though. 

Anyways, I know a few people sometimes take inspiration from my spiritual journey, as it was a crazy rough one, and maybe this post will inspire more people all around the world. 

Okay for starters, everyone has trials when it comes to their faith. There’s always a time period where your faith will be tested, and in my personal case, this happens a lot. However, there was one time period in my life where my faith was literally shattered. I mean, gone. Out the window. Bye bye. 

I was a freshman or sophomore at the time, and growing up in a small town, being an “athiest” is a big deal. I started to share this temporary belief with peers and soon it was like everyone wanted to know and judge me over it. But I didn’t really let that bother me. Some people’s curiosity brought some believers in my life, and without that I wouldn’t be who I am today. 

It started to feel like people were bringing me under their wing and turning my faith into their project, which I did not like. I wasn’t a toy to be fixed. Or a book to be edited. I was just a naive girl who wasn’t sure what she believed in. One friend in particular persisted and persisted with me, although I didn’t agree with everything, our talks helped me develop a better understanding of my situation. 

I’m not going to go into too much detail but I’ve been saved at least 3 times. I know a lot of people think that once you declare yourself “saved” you’re good to go. For me that just hasn’t been true. I’ve fallen away from my God so many times. 

But now, my relationship with God is stronger than ever. I pray everyday. And I don’t just mean in the morning or at night. I mean in the car, while at work, in the shower, everywhere I am I don’t mind talking to God a little bit. My boyfriend and I pray together. God has changed my life. I ask Him everyday to help me be a better person. When I’m talking to a loved one who is struggling, I ask God to speak through me. When I’m going through a troubling time now I completely turn to Him, instead of questioning the situation. 

Not everyone needs to be this way. There are so many different religions in this world, and I am in no way telling anyone that my way is better than theirs. I am just expressing my spiritual journey and the way it’s impacted my life. 

Thanks for reading! I hope everyone enjoys their Easter weekend. Come back Money for some more fashion and photos!

Valentine’s Day Outfits

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and I thought I could put together a few romantic 0utfits for the love filled day. I know for some people, Valentine’s Day can be a lonely time, but there is no law saying you can’t dress up and love yourself. So in this collection I put together some Valentine themed outfits, that you could use for a dinner date, club night with your girlfriends, or a casual errand run.

Casual 

This first outfit is for a casual day time look, playing around with a pale pink. I love the shape of this top.

This shirt is thrifted, the pants are a few years old, and these shoes are from a piano performance.

I love the simplicity of this outfit. It’s really just the top that is so gorgeous, but I think the shoes add a touch of sophistication that elevates this look to the next level.

A little extra detail I added was a flower bow on top of my low bun. It added a little bit of femininity.

I can see anyone wearing this outfit to a movie date, or anywhere that doesn’t require too much uncomfort.

 Courageous Night Out

For this look, I grabbed a jacket to protect myself from the chilly nights. I’m wearing my velvet dress from my 2020Ave Haul, which you could read here. I wore the same adorable shoes, and a pink lace bralette underneath, to insure I didn’t have any wardrobe mishaps.

The best part of this dress, is the crushed velvet. I love how the colors move and bounce off the light.

I also cant get over the way it looks with this jacket. The grey looks good with the grey undertones in the velvet. I love the length, and the way this outfit makes me feel.

Ugh, this dress would be so cute for a dancing date, or something fun for Valentine’s, like going to the arcade or something. I don’t know, that’s just where I see myself in a killer dress like this I guess. Fancy or childish are the only two routes you could go.

Romantic Date 

This next dress is a cliche Valentine’s Day dress, but it is stunning. Are you ready? Here it comes.

The color. The lace. The elegance, I can’t stand it. This dress makes me feel like a wandering Arhrodite, and I cannot shake the feeling.

You could do so much with this dress. You could throw a little cardigan over it, put a belt on it to flare it up, add a scarf or thigh high socks, and you’re good to go. It’s the perfect color for drinking wine in (which I won’t be doing lol. I’m not 21 yet), or eating chocolate covered strawberries in, as it probably won’t stain.

The high low style of this dress is really what gets me I think. I love feeling of the delicate lace brushing against the back of my legs. I put a jeweled headband on, which I think was a nice add on for the outfit.

So there you have it, soft pinks, deep reds, and simple silhouettes are the way to go this Valentine’s Day. I hope everyone had a super fun time!! Thanks for reading. Be sure to follow me with your email for an update everytime I post something trendy!
