Comfy Casual

Who doesn’t love a comfy casual outfit! I love dressing up or dressing down a basic solid color dress and of course pairing it with my go to shoes Keds!

How fun is this jean hat! I recently got it from Shop Scoobie! They had a various amount of fun colors and materials. Lets talk about this dress also with the  pop of color, I have always struggled with figuring out what color is “my” color. I’ve always been told mustard yellow and orange  is not for blondes and blah blah blah! I don’t believe that anyone  can tell you what is and what is not your color! My tip of the night is go bold or go HOME! Color is in and so are risks, try new things you will never know until you try.

Speaking of trying new things, going on TV was such a fun experience for me and my blog Layers and Lipstick! I would have to say I am still at a loss of words from all the love and encouragement I received that  was truly inspiring.  Again, thank you all for tuning it. If you still missed it head on over to my Facebook page Layers and Lipstick (<click) and you can find it there! 🙂

I am so ready for the weekend! Andrew is headed to Chicago and I have booked up my weekend with multiple coffee dates with some good friends, a food truck and wine night, and of course a long to-do list!

Don’t get me wrong I love living with Andrew and seeing his sweet face everyday but I am kind of excited to have the house to myself. That means catching up on laundry, cleaning my office, catching up on OITNB and many more little things.

I am off to bed now! Good night loves!

Savers Halloween Costume- Last minute costume ideas!

Savers is a one-stop shop for Halloween and provides a budget-friendly way to celebrate. With new packaged costumes, makeup, wigs and accessories! It’s fun and easy to
create a unique, one-of-a-kind look.

I had a blast collaborating with Savers for Halloween! Who doesn’t love a good deal?!

My first look is a Bumble bee! I wanted to find pieces that I could use with items in my closet! I found the fun tights at savers, and accessories. I then paired it with my black flats and simple black dress.

My second look I put together was a clown! I was really debating on doing this with everything going on with the scary clown stuff. But I’m sorry, I am not going to let those people ruin my halloween! You can totally be a cute clown by shopping at savers 🙂

I again found these fun accessories and wore a very simple black dress with my black flats from my closet! This was very easy to put together for a last minute ideas!

I hope y’all enjoyed my Halloween DIY post! Don’t forget to stop into Savers to pick up some last minute pieces to complete your costume!

Life with Andrew

 

You guys! I want to take a moment to talk about the guy who has supported all my crazy ideas, moved away from his home town for this girl, eats just as much as I do and we aren’t ashamed of it and the one who is behind the camera!

This past August we celebrated our 3 years. I wouldn’t change a thing! We are by no means perfect but to me he is perfect. Andrew has helped me become whom I want to be as a person. He has taught me not to sweat the little things, live each day like it’s the last and laugh often!

A few things about Drew. He  is a mamas boy and that’s one thing I love about him. When you see a man treat his mom like the world you know your in store for a great life ahead! Not only that but he values his family and even though he’s hundreds of miles away he tries his hardest to be the best, son, brother, friend and uncle to his friends and family.

Drew has the biggest smile and best laugh that can honestly put a smile on anyones face! He has really funny jokes, or really horrible ones that I have no idea what he is talking about but I can’t help but laugh. He is a movie junky, he knows every Jim Carrey movie there is out there!

Life with drew has been a rollercoaster! The long distance, the FaceTime dates, the multiple trips back and forth from Kansas City to Michigan and now living together! We truly are working on ourselves, and our relationship every day. Relationships are not easy.  I literally learn something new from this guy every day.

Some pretty big news is we are moving into a HOUSE! We have been living in an apartment together for a year. We decided to move into a house. We have been wanting to get a back yard for Luther and the opportunity fell into our lap with this home. We are so beyond blessed with this opportunity and it being passed down from my Family. We will be renting and fixing it up as time goes on.  We are currently getting things all together for the big move. I can’t wait to share more, we have been busting our butts to make this house our home I can’t wait to share pictures with you guys once we get settled! <3 So for now Cheers to 3 years and seeing what God has in store for us next, have a fab weekend!

Just do it.

Good morning ! As I sit hear writing this I am looking at Luther so groggy from meds, and I am so tired. Yesterday he got fixed, we were up practically all night trying to stay comfy in bed. Finally at 4AM I put him in his crate because poor thing didn’t know what he wanted.

These past few weeks have been hectic with renovating/ cleaning a new house, getting back into town, balancing clients and all that jazz. The one thing I get to do that I truly believe keeps me sane is work out!  I wanted to share with you one of my go to brands when it comes to working out!

Working out has never been my favorite thing to do, but the aspect of how it balances me out is why I do it.

Nike has been one of my favorite brands since I can remember. From their sports bras, to their shoes! I recently got these new kicks and have to say that are by far the comfiest Nike shoes I have ever owned! Their brand has always been loyal to their costumers.

With this fall coming up I am so excited for more runs and walks outside!! My routine consists of this >>> workout! I personally use the 12 week plan. I have been such a slacker lately with us being out of town and moving this month there is a lot going on. I can’t wait to get this booty back into shape and share with you all my journey from my workouts to my meals!
