My Bachelorette Party in D.C.

A few weekends ago I had my bachelorette party. After months of throwing out ideas and trying to come up with a definitive plan, we settled on heading to Washington D.C.

It was a definitely a trip that will be remembered for a very long time. And if you follow me on Snapchat, you were able to see some of the silly things we were doing and get some of the experiences from the show that we attended. Though that story may have only been following about half the night, you could have still put together the jist of the entire thing. The other half the night wasn’t filmed because I was having so much fun that I became so detached from my phone.

Skincare Review with Vivo Per Lei

vivo per lei

I’ve been really big on my skin care lately. I should have always been. But ever since this past Fall, I’ve been focusing more on treating acne and other issues that I have been having.

When I first got engaged, I was focusing simply on evening out my complexion and finding the right moisturizer that would give my skin the hydration it needs without feeling full layer of oil sitting on top of my skin. But around the time when I started my job and began the bigger part of wedding planning, my face started breaking out really badly. So bad that I ended up going to a dermatologist because I thought that it was either an allergic reaction, a rash from something, or a type of skin condition. I was wrong about all of that. It turned out that I was breaking out from extreme stress. Basically, I have adult acne and I have to start treating my skin a whole lot better than I did before.

Ever since that consultation, I’ve been trying out a variety of different products to find one that fits my skin and that gets me to the look I want for my wedding.

These past few weeks, I have been trying out a skin care collection by Vivo Per Lei – the Retinol Collection. Continue Reading →

A Stylish Attraction of Opposites

Spring has arrived and though the days are still slightly cold, there is some warmth that is coming in that is allowing me to get rid of the winter coat and just stick to a nice warm sweater.

I recently went on a shopping trip at Kohl’s – a store that I haven’t actually shopped at since I was a teenager – and took a stroll around the women’s section. In the section, I found the Lauren Conrad clothing line. I was a big fan of “The Hills” when it was on TV. It was like a guilty pleasure of mine. The drama that unfolded was just entertaining though sometimes ridiculous. But one of the things that I like about the show was the young women such as Lauren that were working towards their goals and achieve their dream jobs. And according to this fashion line and everything Lauren Conrad is going, she made it. She is a true inspiration.

Working at Chic

teacher style

In my opinion, you career dictates your work wear style. There is a certain type of outfit that you were if you are a corporate worker and then there is a style that you maintain if you are a teacher. You style comes roots in your personality. And typically, when a person chooses a career, they choose it base on where he or she fits – again, based on personality. That’s the theory.

I chose teaching as my career, but I also enjoy the corporate atmosphere. When I was in college, I worked at a big corporation and had a desk job. It was comfortable and I enjoyed what I did. At that time, I was studying to gain my degree in education, but during that brief time, I did question where I wanted to go with my life. But that’s not what we are here to focus on.

Velvet Luxe

My nights out in my early 20s were filled with red solo cups, jeans, and a comfy shirt that looked a little dressy but wasn’t really. That was college. No need to really dress up to go out to the bar.

After college, when the nights out in turned into going to lounges in the city, I realized that the time for jeans and a “nice” shirt was long over. It was time to add a little luxury to my style and embrace the trends of each season.

This season has been about the velvet trend – it’s everywhere, and it add luxuriousness to every outfit. Continue Reading →
