As with any other holiday, Memorial Day gives us the opportunity to dress the occasion in our fashionable reds, whites and blues. I hope along with looking at today from a trendy perspective, that we not forget the true meaning of what this day actually signifies! Thank You to all of the service men and women who dedicated a portion of their lives to serving our country! Showing gratitude clearly shouldn't be restricted to 24 hours. Our freedoms and luxuries that a lot of us take for granted would not be available to us without the strength and bravery of those who lay it all on the line! You are amazing souls and we couldn't be more in your debt! #USA
Over the last year, I've had the opportunity to do a lot of collaborating with IT Cosmetics, which has led to the accumulation of a ton of their products! While I am extremely grateful that they would allow me to try their makeup, I have a lot of duplicates, ever triplicates of some of them! I decided to host a blog giveaway to allow someone else the opportunity to try them or add to their collections! Come on in to see what you will get if you win AND to enter!
Ok, so I lied! I said in my Nike Sky Hi Dunks post that I wouldn't be purchasing anymore shoes for a long time. I also know that I'm a day late for this weeks link up that was scheduled for yesterday, forgive me! Third thing, I absolutely know that it isn't Winter anymore (even though we experienced a brief snow shower on Sunday) BUT if you guys were put in the position I was to acquire these boots, you would have definitely jumped on the opportunity to get them as well!
This weekend was ROUGH! There was still that unnerving feeling left behind from knowing that my my mom isn't here anymore. It's such a crazy feeling, I was so attitude-y (if that's a word) at points over this weekend and I had a moment where I REALLY didn't want to even celebrate at all at! I had to put my big girl pants on, suck it up for the sake of my babies wanting to celebrate me and get out of my feelings. And when I did, that's where the fun began!
If you are unfamiliar, I have my own YouTube channel where I do tutorials, reviews, hauls and everything in between. I haven't been as active lately due to everything that went on with my mom. Aside from my emotions, it takes way less time to blog than to shoot, edit and upload a video, so that's why it's been easier to come here and share everything. I tried to get back into video making and that turned out real soggy (you can watch here if you choose), but I will start back filming next week and what better way to get back into it than with new equipment!
Happy new week and welcome to the month of May! With Mother's Day being just 6 days away, it's time to dig in the vault to put together what I would say is the best Mother's Day outfit! In a perfect world, I would bring out the bright colors and florals. However, since I live in Michigan, our weather is ALWAYS crappy (for the lack of a better term) on Mama's day, so I'm sure I will be nice and covered! Here is a little inspo for you ladies that are in warmer weather conditions!
