These past couple days have gone by so fat exploring Nashville.  Today we will be heading home with our little man. His name is yet to be determined, he is a  miniature schnauzer with a little white patch on his chest! Thats the only way we could tell him apart from his brother!

This past month I have  been preparing for what life is going to be like with a puppy/ dog. I don’t think I will ever be fully prepared but hey, I am trying! My number one priority is to make our new puppy feel right at home when we get him. We are going through a breeder and she has been so helpful on the items to have when you first bring your puppy home and to having a full handout of how to crate train, and potty train. That has been so helpful.

I am anxious to see how this dynamic goes between having a puppy in the mix of our daily lives. Its honestly like having a baby, you hear from everyone their opinions, how to do things, how not to do things. And also I hear its like having a baby because of the sleepless nights. And oh boy do I  love my sleep so that will be interesting.  We have plenty of toys to get him started with and have really one more thing on our list to get which is a baby gate of some sort!

I can’t wait for you all to meet him!  Until then, you all have a great day!

 It’s Wishlist Wednesday, I just know I am going to love Wednesday’s even more, not just because it’s almost Friday but I get to share with you guys the things I have my eyes one.

I have always loved the transition from Winter to Spring it always means new makeup, accessories and clothes!  All the items listed above are under $100 and they are all things  that can work with anything in your wardrobe!

Update on our trip! We are headed to Nashville, and I could not be more excited! We are staying near The Opryland  Resort, Broadway Street and will be going to a lot of yummy places to eat and some of Nashville’s attractions! Thanks to my Facebook Friends who had great suggestions! We will be there for 3 full days before we pick up our puppy. We have yet to finalize his name, but are pretty sure we have one! We just want to wait until we see him in person and his little personality.  I never thought I would be that dog mom, but I have already spoiled him and he’s not even home yet! I can’t wait to introduce him to you all! Feel free to add me on Snap to follow along on our road trip! Username: mikajade

Happy Monday! I am still smiling from ear to ear to have launched my blog yesterday! Thank you all for following along! This past week was one for the books, my best friend came into town from Michigan to visit me! We went to the Justin Bieber concert at the Sprint Center, and it was simply fun. Come to find out we were not even close to being the oldest ones there, so I don’t feel guilty AT ALL! He was great, and I would highly suggest if you ever get the opportunity, go see him! You won’t regret it. The two of us also did some shopping at Zona Rosa Town Center!

 A few details about this outfit.. I am all about good deals, right now my jeans and flats are on sale! (Links above) I recently bought this shirt from Target from their new collection Who What Wear. Super affordable and they have such a great line for this Spring.

I am looking forward to this upcoming week. A trip to Nashville with Andrew is in order to pick up our first puppy. We are thrilled and cannot only wait to pick him up but also to explore the city for a few days.

I hope you all have a great day, and be sure to check in for more posts later this week!



Meet Mika Jade


Hi Guys!! Welcome to Layers and Lipstick, I am beyond ecstatic that you are here. Layers and Lipstick has been a long time coming. Creating a blog  has always been a dream of mine, and now to see it live I can’t stop smiling. I welcome you all on my journey and thank you all ahead of time for the love and support! This is all very new to me and I am still learning, and will continue to learn as I dive into the world of blogging.

Why Layers & Lipstick?
The  first step in creating a blog is a lot more than you think… coming up with a name for me was one of the hardest things. I was ready to start blogging 5 months ago, but then realized I didn’t have a name. It took several of weeks, sleepless nights and endless amounts of conversations. I came up with  lipstick because it has been something I have been exploring and trying endless amounts over this past year, colors, glosses, mattes you name it! So lipstick symbolizes  to always trying something new, whether or not you think it will turn, because you never know until you try! The layers part came simply from the fact that I am putting myself out there 110% to readers, followers and inspiring others! So I want you to see the different layers of my life. This blog will represent me, my lifestyle, fashion, beauty and everything in between. I am so excited to share this part of my life with you all!
