Weekly Fashionista

A few months ago, I had mentioned that I would start posting about putting outfits together that came from certain clothing stores in order to prove that you could dress for less and still look fashionable. To be honest, I failed on getting that together and then today I put together my outfit and remembered that post. Here's my outfit:

Black top: TJ Maxx ($11.99)
Button down: Burke's Outlet ($14.99)
Floral Scarf: Target ($17.99)
DKNY Skinny Jeans: TJ Maxx ($14.99)
Nicole Boots: Ross ($24.99)

As you can see, the outfit is completely cute but it didn't cost me a fortune either. Now obviously, I didn't buy all these pieces in mind for this particular ensemble. These were purchased at random and actually purchased a couple of years ago (except the boots and scarf). It just goes to show that you can throw things together in your closet , whether new or old, and come out with something that's "in" today. :)

I hope to do this once a week with the items in my closet. Hopefully this will give you some inspiration that you need. And if you're wondering where I get my inspiration from, then check out my favorite blogs listed to your right. Pinterest is also the best website for anything inspirational. Happy Monday!

Things I Love

In effort to make sure I, at least, blog regularly, I am going to do a weekly post titled: Things I Love. It's kind of like sharing my pinterest board(s) with you. Spring semester has started full swing, and I am busier than ever trying to manage classes and a full time job. So without further ado, a present to you a few things I love. Enjoy :) ~xoxo

What are a few things you love?

New Years always has everyone excited to lose weight for the year. Trust me I've done it myself for several years now and it is disappointing when you "fail" that resolution. So I've decided instead to put less pressure on myself and just focus on living a healthy lifestyle, which includes what I eat and exercising.
Recently, I've found out that I have a condition known as IBS. And for those that know what is is, it can be extremely miserable. Fortunately, I've had some help from a physician and a book that has guided me to eating right for IBS. The bonus for this is that I have lost some pounds while changing my diet, and the constant bloat I experienced all the time as dwindled as well. Now, adding some gym time to this will help me to keep my healthy lifestyle active and boost my self-confidence (an ongoing resolution for me). Now I know I said I wouldn't do resolutions this year, but these aren't necessarily just that. So just what are a few things I want to work on this year?

1. Be better at organizing (home & office)
2. Build up my GPA (summer is my last semester! yay)
3. Start look into my professional career
4. Build up our savings account (future home)

So whatever you have written down for your resolutions, good luck to you and remember that in order for it happen, you have to make a daily effort. I've listed some perseverance quotes below, for myself, and for you to get through your goals for the New Year. xoxo~

I may not be there yet, but I'm closer than I was yesterday. 

Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail.  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Don't be afraid to give your best to what seemingly are small jobs.  Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger.  If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.  ~Dale Carnegie
