Work Day Office Outfits & Weekend Pictures

Happy Monday!

I have two outfits to share that I wore last week to work. 
My personal goal is to dress up a little more for work. I caught myself in a rut wearing the same 7 pairs of slacks over and over with the occasional dress thrown in. I figured since it's summer it's time to break out some of my skirts, and to be honest, they're more comfortable anyway!

Can I also just mention how difficult it is to take pictures of your outfit at work? I don't have a full length mirror any where so I opt for these weird angles to get the full outfit. Laugh at me, I know.

Necklace is from New York & Company. 

Blazer: JCPenney/Tank: Forever 21/Skirt: JCPenney/Flats: Target

Another issue I am having is incorporating more of my casual shirts into a more dressier way. When I wore this outfit we had a company picnic and I thought the gingham would be appropriate. I actually got quite a bit of compliments from this shirt and I was afraid to wear it because I thought it was too casual.

This past weekend the fiance and I did some exploring in a new city. It was a completely random day where we woke up at 9 and just got dressed, didn't really cared what we looked like and had a random fun day. We went shopping at a farmer's market and I picked up blueberries(of course), grapes and a HUGE watermelon. Afterwards we went to see The Purge, SO good by the way!

If I knew how to cut up a pineapple I would have bought one!

I changed my chalkboard to a countdown to our cruise. We're so excited! :)

Have a great night!

Ipsy Glam Bag July Pictures

Happy Thursday!

You know we are one day closer to this weekend? And I definitely need it! :)
Today I'm sharing my Ipsy Glam Bag for July today. I'm not going to review any products today (I'm sorry) but figured I share what was in MY glam bag.

What was in your glam bag?

How adorable is this bag? I love the scalloped edges, such a nice touch Ipsy!

 I'm really starting to love Pixi products so I was excited to see another Pixi product in this month's glam bag.

I'm not a huge fan of Bare Minerals but I am going to give this a shot. It's suppose to be a BB cream eyeshadow but also brightens, smooths, protects and can be used as a primer. 

 Has anyone ever head of Whet nail polish before? I'm not sure if you can tell from the picture, but this is a bright blue, almost neon dark blue. I'm excited to try this on my toes!

 The product on top is a Split End Mender and Preventer, I could definitely use this considering my bleached ends from my Ombre hair. The second product is a Hang 10 dark tanning oil. I have heard of Hang 10 but never used anything by them.

Until my actual review of the products, have a good night!

Weekend Shopping - Ross, Sephora, Charming Charlie's & JCPenney

Happy Monday!

How was everyone's weekend? 
I did a little bit of shopping over the weekend. :)
Today I'm here to share it with you. 

I needed new stack-able bracelet's and what better place to go was Charming Charlie. I got 3 bracelets for $20 and the other small bow bracelet was on clearance for $4.99. I am going to consider this another cruise purchase.

My mom loves elephants so I bought this cute little bracelet for her. 

This was an impulse purchase but I like it anyway. 

I am super excited about this purchase. I've been wanting this palette for quite some time now but was not willing to spend $29 on it. I didn't think it was worth it for how small the shadows are, even if it does come with an adorable phone case. Well, while I was in JCPenney they have it on clearance for $15! 

I plan to do a better review on this later, but for now here's some pics. 

Like I said, it comes with a phone case, and the most adorable phone case. 

I also found this little gem at JCPenney. I bought it in X-Large because it was the only size left. It'll work, especially if I do use it for working out. 

At Ross I picked up this nail polish holder for $4.99. I know this will not fit all my nail polishes but it'll fit ones I haven't used yet, and they'll be more organized than just sitting in a pile. Plus it'll be easier for me to see what colors I haven't used yet. Ross has a bunch of these types of containers by the way, and for a good price! 

I picked up this dress at Ross for $7.49! Even though it's a dark orange I'll still wear it this summer, but it'll be a great transitioning piece as well. 

This top will be another transitioning piece, but will still wear in the summer for those cold nights. Plus it was on clearance for $7.00!

This was my most expensive purchase from Ross. This tank/top top was $11.99. This was a size Medium, I ended up picking up the size small because this was a little too baggy (even though I like bigger shirts). This is a top I'll also be wearing on the cruise. I love the crochet detailing of it!

Have a great night.

My First Purchase for Our Upcoming Norwegian Cruise

Happy Thursday!

I officially made my first purchase for our upcoming cruise to the Bahama's in August. This may not be 100% accurate, but I'm going to believe that it IS my first purchase. ;)
I've been buying things here and there for our beach trip {which was in June}, that I will probably be using for the cruise as well. 

Yesterday I went to Ross to look around and found some pretty good deals. 

I picked up this chevron beach bag, that is fully lined inside for $7.99!
Can we just take a moment and just appreciate it's beauty? 
Anyway, it comes in other pretty colors as well, but as you know, I love me some pink. :)

This is my go too. Every where I travel I bring this dry shampoo. My Fiance knows it too. I have long thick curly hair and styling it every day is just impossible. When I use to work at a department store I tried this out after I saw reviews on YouTube. I haven't been able to try another brand since. This was originally $25, and I got it for $7.99. Will this be going on the cruise with me? Probably!

What does everyone do before they go on a cruise? Go on a diet. 
Well, me too, I'm no exception. I'm trying these thigh bands out, I use a belly band every time I work out as well. It really helps with trouble areas. 

Chevron shorts for $6.99. Do I really need to say more? :)

Anyway, just a quick post. I'm going to be doing a post for "Essentials needed for a cruise" in the next couple of weeks, as my cruise gets closer. 

Have a great night. :)

Work today was much better than yesterday. So I'm a happy girl. 

Top: Forman Mills 
Skirt: Kohls
Necklace: Kohls {I think}
Watch: Michael Kors

Have a great night!

Weekend Buys - Ulta & Flea Market Finds

Happy Tuesday!

I know, I know. It's been far too long since I last blogged. I believe January was my last blog post. 
For today, I'm not going to get into it {nothing bad, I promise!}. 

I have a little haul for you today.
It's just some little things I picked up this past 4th of July weekend.
How nice was it to have a 3 day weekend?! :)

Fiance & I went to the Flea Market at our hometown. It's something we love to do, but sometimes find it hard to do when we both wake up early every day during the work week. But we try to make it as often as we can. For this flea market find, it makes me want to go more often. 
I actually almost passed up this little gem. Fiance and I were walking passed this ladies stand and for whatever reason I looked on the ground, and there laid this beautiful napkin cupcake holder. Originally when I walked up to it the piece of tape was folded over the Cents sign and thought it was $5.00. I was going to buy it for $5.00 anyway because I've never seen anything like it! Well when I picked it up, low and behold, there lay the .50 sign. MINE. ALL MINE. The cherry needs a little work, it looks faded to me, but it's nothing a little red nail polish won't fix. <3

Ever since my June Ipsy bag, I've been obsessed with the NYX butter gloss. They're perfect! It has color pay off for being a lip gloss and is not sticky what-so-ever. It's seriously the perfect lip gloss, and you need to go pick up yourself one. Right. Now. I also picked up a Revlon lip stick.  

Creme Brulee is the NYX butter gloss I got in my June Ipsy bag, it's the perfect nude lip gloss, especially when you're nice and tan. I used it every day at the beach. ;)

Started from top to bottom:
Revlon's 040 Rendezvous - a pretty orange/peach shade
NYX Butter Gloss - Creme Brulee
NYX Butter Gloss - Cupcake (I actually picked up this shade at Ulta without realizing it was "Cupcake" until I got to the counter - See? I'm obsessed without consciously knowing I'm obsessed)

I picked up these lashes at the flea market. The lady was selling them just to get rid of them - they weren't even used! Believe me - I checked. 

I also picked up this cute top coat by Sally Hansen. Sometimes I hate to pick up the chunky glitter nail polishes because none of the glitter ends up on your nail, but I figured for $1.00 I'd give it a try. If you're interested the color is 670 Lightshow. Once I use it, I'll let you know how it goes. 

Anyway, have a great night!
