Victoria Emerson Design Collab Pt. 2

Hi everyone! Happy Monday – I hope everyone had a great weekend, I literally did NOTHING and it felt amazing. Saturday, my fiancé wasn’t feeling well and we spent the afternoon/night on the couch watching movies and I have to admit… I fell asleep at 9! It felt great, and today I have been cleaning & blogging all day. 🙂

I had the opportunity to collaborate with Victoria Emerson Designs and they outdid themselves yet again!! It doesn’t matter what items I pick, I know they will be the cutest, most stylish pieces. I received a variety of necklaces, bracelets, and pair of diamond studs. Below are a few photos of their designs and the links of the products – they have a great collection and you definitely need to check out of their website — HERE.

Must-Have Summer Two Piece

Hi hiiii beauties —

 

I have collaborated with SheIn once again with this adorable, summer two-piece look. While the Florida girls, like me, are holding onto summer for just a little bit longer, this adorable outfit would go perfect for a date night, GNO, or beach trip! I love the versatility of it by dressing it up or down. I also love the fact that it doesn’t show much skin. This was the second outfit that SheIn has sent me, and I have to admit, I am impressed with the material of them both. The two-piece is very thin material, but it is not see-through at all. It covers up everything that needs to be covered, so that’s a plus. I would definitely recommend this outfit to anyone, and that is my honest opinion. 🙂

The Wallflower Maxi Skirt

Hi babes –

This maxi skirt was an accidental find, but I am absolutely thrilled I found it; I was in a store called Sandy’s, a resale boutique in Gainesville, Fl. People bring their NWT or gently used clothing to Sandy’s and exchange it for cash. Easy way to keep your closet up-to-date with the latest fashion. I love the idea!

Back to the skirt details, when I found it at Sandy’s, it still had the tags on it, and it was a perfect fit. I was so excited! The maxi skirt is just the perfect look for summer with a white or blush crop top, and a dainty or statement piece necklace. Even though summer is coming to an end, I live in Florida where it’s beach weather all year-round. This skirt is from an Australian website called The Wallflower, but it can also be found at Revolve. It runs at $90, and I bought it for $NINE WITH TAGS!!!!! Uhmmmm, can you say steal?!?! Such a great buy. One more thing, my bag is a designer dupe from Target- $14, but I just checked and the price went back to normal at $29, still not bad!! I will link the designer bag and always the one I bought.

Guest Blogger ft. Tanner Mann

Hi beauties, I feel like this has been a Monday from, you know where. I am so not used to publishing on Monday’s so I have felt like I have been running around/hurrying home from work so I have time to perfect everything before I hit “publish”.

Nevertheless, I have been very excited to post this particular blog post since last week because I have collaborated with my soul sister/fellow blogger, Tanner Mann, author of “The Life of a Womann”. We came up with a set of “interview-like” questions to ask each other, so we could express ourselves and show you all why we love blogging, how we got started, etc. Below are Tanner’s answers — Also, don’t forget to head on over to The Life of a Womann to check out my answers!

IMG_4950.JPGIMG_4951.JPG

Of course when { T W O } bloggers get together, we can’t go without a little photo sesh… even in the rain 😛


  1. Why did you start blogging?
  • I have always had such a love for beauty, makeup, and fashion. In high school I started watching makeup tutorials and completely fell in love with the media side of beauty.  Starting a blog was an outlet for my creativity and inspiration.  I love being able to share a new product that I just can’t live without or finding a deal that I know everyone else would enjoy!

 

  1. How much time do you spend on your blog a week?
  • Believe it or not, constructing a blog post is much more than sitting down and writing the words that come to mind. I have a journal that is specific to planning blog ideas. Once I have decided on the subject, I take the time to pick out an outfit for blog/Instagram pictures. Getting ready for pictures takes up the most time—and then finding a location and taking the pictures.  Sometimes a post even involves a bit of research.  With all of these aspects of blogging involved, I spend approximately 10-15 hours per week.

 

  1. What blogger/vlogger inspires you the most?
  • When it comes to makeup I am most inspired by Jaclyn Hill. She shares all of her beauty tips and tricks on her YouTube channel and blog.  When I am in a rut and just need a new idea, I always look to this beautiful soul to get my creative juices flowing.
  • My fashion icon is Desi Perkins! If you aren’t following her on all social media platforms, you should be. She is a makeup/fashion vlogger from L.A, who always pushes the limits and slays every outfit.

 

  1. Is blogging a profession for you or just a hobby?
  • As of now, blogging is a hobby. I work a full time job during the week and spend most of my time on the weekends blogging, I would love to one day dedicate all of my time to blogging and have the opportunity to make a career of it.

 

  1. What is the most challenging part about blogging?
  • Coming into blogging I thought this would be an extremely fun and easy process. I learned how wrong I was very quickly.  I think the most challenging part is Instagram/taking pictures.  Because I work a full time job, I don’t get to slay a stiletto heel every day, so I try to take most of my pictures on the weekend to last throughout the week.  When taking pictures, you have to find the perfect background, get the perfect angle, and find the perfect edit.  I am still training my husband on the angles.

 

  1. How did you come up with your blog name?
  • When choosing the name of my blog, I wanted something fun and chic that still incorporated my personality and what my platform was. Since most of my content is geared towards women and my last name is Mann, “The Life of a Womann” fit the part perfectly.  This actually came to me out of nowhere…that is when you know it is the one.

 

  1. In the future, where do you see yourself in the blogging world?
  • My goal and dream is to start a beauty YouTube channel and start producing vlogs, while still blogging weekly. I love everything about the blogging/vlogging world and would love to live a hustle and bustle life in New York City blogging for large makeup and fashion companies.

 

  1. What is your favorite trend at the moment?
  • If you follow me on any social media, you will not be surprised with this answer. I am so obsessed with chokers right now.  I love them with any and every outfit, dressy or casual.  They just add a hint of sass to any outfit and also create slimming effect.Picture1

This was such a fun post and bringing it to life was even more fun. We got together last week, did our makeup, took pictures, ate Bento (our fav!!!!), danced a little, took more pictures and just had a blast being the girly girls we are. I can’t wait to do it again. We have a couple more collaboration ideas, so if you enjoyed this post let us know what you think about doing more. I know we are super excited about them!

Warby Parker

There’s only a couple things better than the feeling of looking at the beautiful summer blue sky with a new pair of shades on. I don’t know about you but I get overly excited when I get my hands on some stylish, affordable sunglasses, so excited that I never want to take them off. Have you all heard of Warby ParkerAmong many things, there are { T H R E E } things that pop out about this company that I absolutely love!!

The first and ultimate thing is the fact that they give back. A large percentage of the world can’t afford to buy glasses, which means people are not able to learn or work effectively. Warby Parker has generously teamed up with non-profits such as VisionSpring so that for every pair of glasses sold, a pair will be distributed to someone in need.

The second thing I love about this company is their “Home Try On” abilities.  This aspect of the company allows a customer to choose 5 pairs of sunglasses or prescription glasses that they will ship to you for 5 days. That gives you plenty of time to get a feel for all of glasses before you have to send them back. They’ll send you a fresh new pair of the ones (or more) you love. Can you honestly tell me another company that does that?

The third thing is their limited edition Field Series Line that was launched this summer. The new line has 3 distinct styles with 2 colors to choose from. The polarized frames are perfect for taking in that beautiful, summer, blue sky I mentioned earlier.

  • The first of the three styles is the Reed, which comes in a Green Spruce or Jet Black Matte if you are going for a sleek, sexy look. Just picture black leather pants, black pumps with a stylish blouse. Now, who came up with orange is the new black? You’ll be looking like a celebrity!! Another more casual look for inspiration below!
    • WP_Reed_101_Sunglasses_Angle_A2_sRGBProductImageStyleGuide_v2FullSizeRender-15
  • The second style is the Grady, which comes in Whiskey Tortoise (Gorgeous!!!) and Crystal Aqua. This style has fun cutout details that makes the Grady’s that much more fashionable.
    • ProductImageStyleGuide_v2ProductImageStyleGuide_v2
  • Finally, the third style is the Bonnie aka my personal favorite. The look of these sunglasses are more round, with an oversized frame. The 2 colors it comes in are Walnut Tortoise with Polished Gold (the ones I have been eyeing and might be purchasing soon, also shown in the picture below!) and the other color is Grapefruit Soda with Reisling. Some outfit inspiration below for this style of sunglasses.
    • WP_Bonnie_242_Sunglasses_Angle_A3_sRGBProductImageStyleGuide_v2FullSizeRender-1

 


This limited edition set of sunglasses need to be your next summer purchase. The freedom they give you to dress them up however you decide is one of my favorite things about them. Warby Parker is located all over the United States. Their products can also be found on their website www.warbyparker.com.

Current Obsessions + the #Nsale

At the beginning of every week, I start to research and decide what I want to blog about for the upcoming week. There were literally a thousand things I wanted to write about for this post, so I decided to do a “Current Obsession” post. With the Anniversary Sale going on at Nordstrom (like a Black Friday for Nordstrom) and many personal products that I love, I have so much I want to share.

If you don’t know what the Anniversary Sale or #Nsale is, Nordstrom has a MAJOR sale every year where they bring in BRAND NEW ARRIVALS at SUPER SALE PRICES!!! So all the new Fall fashions are on the sale right now. The sale opened up July 14th, but it was an early access for Nordstrom Card Holders only. Today, July 22nd, it opens up to the public, so ANYONE can shop!!! If you are in a shopping mood, head over to Nordstrom and shop shop shop! I will share what I bought and my personal favs from the sale as well.


 

One of my favorites from the #Nsale is the “Karly” Shift Dress by Lush. This dress is gorgeous, comes in 8+ colors, and only $31 right now. Definitely a steal and such great quality. I added the link above so you can check it out for yourself. 🙂


 

My next fav from the #Nsale are basic tees. One of my favorite summer looks is jean shorts and a basic tee with cute lace up shoes or espadrilles. So simple but stylish. Lush makes the perfect basic tee, I bought it almost in every color. They are on sale right now for $15!!


 

I can’t wait to share the other items I bought from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I have to patiently wait for everything to come in the mail! Sad……… so I wanted to share other products that I am currently obsessing over that doesn’t have to do with the #Nsale 🙂

IMG_4489

First: Limencello Candle from B&BW – my absolutely favorite!! I originally bought it to try it out because all my friends were obsessing over it so I figured why not? Well, I went back and bought three more… it just makes your house smell so lemony fresh and its such a soft smell, if you know what I mean. I recommend it 100%!

Second: ANY pink polish for summer, the last 3 months my nails have been various shades of pink. Not ashamed…. it is such a pretty color for summer!!

Third: Chanel lipgloss, one of my friends sadly told me that this color was only a limited edition which is unfortunate. If I knew, I would’ve bought more!! Chanel has a ton of colors in this certain lipgloss that I am not worried you couldn’t find one you loved.

Fourth: Hempz Herbal Body Moisturizer in Vanilla Plum, I bought this only a few weeks ago and have used it every day. It comes in lots of different scents and it took me about 20 minutes to find out the one I wanted. I wanted them all!! Lol! I linked Ulta which they are $16.99, but I actually found this one at TJ Maxx for $12.

Fifth: Tartlette In Bloom eyeshadow palette – I bought this in the spring, but have used it almost daily this summer. The colors are so neutral and pretty for summer, it barely looks like you have anything on! Love it and recommend it. It also smells like chocolate! 😛

Sixth: Anything book by Lauren Weisberger – her books are great for a quick summer read if you are into that sorta thing! Loving this book right now “Chasing Harry Winston”!

Seventh: One more of my favorite this summer is the colored drink from Starbucks! My favorite though is the #OrangeDrink. I am obsessed with oranges and mangos so naturally its my number one. If you haven’t tried it yet, please try it!!! The ingredients are Orange/Mango Juice, Vanilla Powder, and Coconut Milk.


 

What are your current summer obsessions? I would love to hear and maybe try out for myself 🙂 Don’t forget to follow my adventures on Instagram!

Yesterday’s #OOTD ft. the Perfect LBD

I don’t know what is more rewarding in the fashion world than finding THE perfect, inexpensive LBD (little black dress) for summer. There are so many options with just one piece of clothing, you can add heels and a leather jacket to dress it up or kick on some chucks and throw on a flannel to make it casual, the choice is yours. That is why I am obsessed with pieces like a little black dress, because they go with whatever my mood is. Don’t mind my iPhone photos, it was all I had. 😉

IMG_4354IMG_4359IMG_4361IMG_4375IMG_4378

LBD: sold out from Forever 21, super affordable and similar here | Flannel: you can use any color or style, mine is from Charlotte Russe | Shoes: sold out from Altar’d State, but similar here | Handbag: Michael Kors, same style but smaller here (on sale), or similar handbag here

LBD ft. the #pinkdrink from @Starbucks. Highly recommend if you have never tried it 🙂 tastes like strawberry milk x 10000000.

Don’t forget to keep up with me on Instagram for more #ootd’s ♥
