Yellow, almost-weekend! It’s Thursday and it’s been a long week, so I’m gonna keep it short and sweet today on the blog. I’ve already ranted about how obsessed I am with yellow this season on the blog, but in case you haven’t invested in a yellow piece this season, I think I found your must-have. This silky ruffled yellow skirt may be my favorite yellow piece yet. From the flattering wrap look to the easy-to-walk in side slit and the ultra-feminine ruffles, this skirt is pure magic y’all. What’s even better?! It’s only $56!

Happy Hump Day! Today is my little sister Tiffany’s birthday, but both my sister and my little brother, Jayson, have September birthdays, so I thought it would be the perfect time to show a little sibling love here on the blog. Having been an only child for a mere two years of my life, I both literally and figuratively couldn’t imagine my life without my siblings. The three of us have had our ups and downs, but we have always been extremely close through it all and they’ve had such a huge impact on my life and who I am today. So in honor of my sibs, today I’m sharing five reasons why siblings are simply the best!!

Whether you’re a sister like me who’s going through a tough time with your sibling (hey, I’ve been there) or you’re a parent thinking about adding another addition, click through to read my top 5 reasons why siblings are one of God’s greatest gifts!!

Side Note – no, our puppies haven’t shrunk. The other reason I simply had to share this post is because another set of siblings who very much love each other, my puppy Lady and my parent’s puppy Shadow, look so darn cute in these photos and I don’t know how or why I never shared them before! These were taken all the way back in February so they were just two months old. Ahh – where has time gone?!

Happy Tuesday friends! If you follow me on instagram, you might have noticed that I took a bit of a hiatus from the blog for an Alaskan Adventure with Princess Cruises last week (a whole lotta blog posts to come with the details on that amazing experience). As a side note, I 100% had a blog post planned for each week day I was gone, but due to the limited amount of wifi megabytes we were alotted (and the fact that I was completely entranced by the beauty of it all), all of my little bloggy blog posts stayed in draft mode. But lucky for you, that means items like this amazing off the shoulder ruffle dress in gorgeous orangy-coral  had time to be restocked (it sold out so fast after I bought it!!)

Just when we thought skinny jeans were here to stay forever, a revolution has begun in the world of women’s denim. That’s right, y’all – skinny jeans are on their way out (but not quite yet, so keep wearing ’em for now!) to make room for their opposite counterpart – unfit denim. From crop flare jeans like the pair I’m styling today (which happen to be on sale, I might add) and denim with extra ruffled flair like the pair I styled here, to straight leg, mom-style jeans (I have a pair of those to style on the way!) and the welcomed return of the boyfriend jean, denim has taken a turn for the unfit and frankly, I’m loving it!!

Click on the read more button below to get the full scoop on why I’m all heart eyes over these crop flare jeans (I’ve also linked more styles for you to shop in the post!) and how to style them for a fresh and chic look this fall.

5 Under $10 Easy Skin Care Fixes

affordable skin care products

SHOP THE POST

Happy Hump Day! As you may know, I’ve been talking a lot about skin care here on the blog lately. From must-buy splurges like I talked about last week to sharing my daily skincare routine, it’s been a topic that’s become quite important in my life as I face my later twenties and start to notice actual differences in my face when I get lazy and fall asleep in my makeup. Disclaimer – I‘m definitely not perfect, and that still happens sometimes. Before the last couple of years, I really never paid much attention to skin care or invested time in researching or buying products. I just used the same ole’ stuff my momma always stocked me with in college and that was that. One of the main reasons was because this college budget girl was intimidated by the prices of skin care products (and I still am!!)…that’s why I was so excited to stumble upon Formula 10.0.6’s line of affordable skincare products, all under $10 and available exclusively at Target. Whether you’re seeking to knockout blackheads, moisturize dry skin or give your face an instant glow, there’s an amazing product that actually works in store for you.
