Abercrombie & Fitch| Layers and Lipstick Picks

I hope y’all had a great Easter weekend! I have been trying very hard to set a shopping limit for myself monthly and that includes finding good deals. When I spot good savings I always want to share with you guys.

When was the last time you shopped at Abercrombie and Fitch? I can’t tell you the last time I shopped there or walked in their store… but as of lately I have had my eyes on some trendy layering pieces for this Spring. Everything online is currently 50% and today is the last day! I am sharing with you guys what I got from this awesome sale.

Layers and Lipstick turns one!

Layers and Lipstick Turns One

YAY! It has been 1 year of having a blog.

Words really cannot describe what a journey my blog has taken me on! If you’re recently just now following me on my journey, welcome!

I have never really been into big earrings, but these earrings changed that game for me. How gorgeous are these?

Where do I even begin. First off I am so thankful for my followers and fashionistas that have supported me along this crazy road.

When I realized I wanted to start a blog I never really understood what I was getting myself into. Not only the investment but the time and effort it really takes. This has all really been a learning curve for me and Andrew. He has been my right hand man when it comes to what goes on behind the scenes for Layers and Lipstick. So shout out to Andrew! Thanks babe!

My blog really has taught me a lot about myself, the good and the bad. Putting myself out there has been hard for me this year, but that is one goal this next year for my blog to really be transparent with you all about the day- to- day life of Mika Jade.

I have some big plans for Layers and Lipstick this year! Thank you so much to all whom support me and this fun adventure.

Pie Date + Life Lately

How adorable and fun are these photos from our pie date. My good/talented friend Brooke from Nomadic Newlyweds. Just in time for Valentines Day tomorrow. I have to admit I have been missing for quit some time lately. A little life update below these fun photos <3

How adorable is this little pie shop?! Hands down best pie I have ever ate, and they come in different sizes and flavors. It was a blast working with Brooke, she made us so comfortable.

We just got back from Michigan yesterday afternoon, and I am still exhausted. We went back home to have Andrew’s family Christmas party. I have yet to unpack and have no desire to… is that bad?! LOL It is always nice to go back home, but to be back in your own bed and get back in a routine. That will never get old. Our house is a mess, everything is everywhere and needs to be picked up. My to-do list is so long right now I have a headache, literally from even thinking about it.

Life Update:

I got a new job, yes a new job. I believe that I am to young to just settle. Don’t get me wrong my last job was a great job to have and I loved everyone there! It personally was not for me and I am glad I realized it early on rather then trying to force myself to doing something I did not feel was my calling. I am now working for an Advertising Agency and love it! Not only is it a fun learning curve, but the overall the people and atmosphere is a breathe of fresh air.

With having a new job, I have became very busy and haven’t had time to update my blog as often as I want. Adjusting to this lifestyle is something I am still trying to figure out. Adulting is a continuous thing as I am sure we are learning.

Our Home:
Our house is coming together slowly but surely. On our trip to Michigan I stopped at my new favorite store The Found Cottage and snagged some fun items.

Luther:
Luther just got his actual first big boy hair cut, like I do not recognize him. I cannot believe he turns one the twenty first of this month. Where has time gone?!

I would love to hear what you guys want to see more, know more of for me to share on my blog! Let me know your thoughts please 🙂

I am about to stuff my face with left over Thai food and catch up on all our shows 🙂 Have a good night!

 

Charlie Hustle- Arrowhead + house update!

 

 

Good Morning all! Check out this cute and comfy Charlie Hustle shirt, they are all super easy to pair with any type of outfit 🙂 and that handsome guy I had to post this picture of him, because he is always the one behind the camera for me! So shout out to this incredible human being for being so great!

Words cannot describe how busy I have been these past couple weeks. Believe it or not I was going to post this on Sunday, just in time for the Chiefs game! But that didn’t happen, obviously…LOL!

We are trying to make our house some what presentable for Thanksgiving because we are hosting Andrew’s parents for the first time in our new home. I could not be more thrilled! We have put together the guest bedroom finally and added a few touches to the bathroom and kitchen.

The kitchen is almost complete, we are adding subway tile this week and should be finished by the end of the weekend. Fingers crossed! Our dining room is just needing some chairs, and a rug. We also need a rug in the living room and man, it is so hard to commit to something that really determines everything in that one room!

I hope you all have a fabulous Wednesday, and I heard its National Fast Food Day! GO out and enjoy that greasy, yummy food!
