Fashion Friday on Monday


after a whirlwind weekend with our family i am so excited to post this casual wear outfit. one of my main reasons for being so excited about this outfit is that i finally have a chance to rave about this denim. these jeans are on repeat for days. they are comfortable, easy to wear and look great with everything. definitely a must buy for spring, summer, winter and fall!

the top is a basic tee from J.Crew. i love the softness of their basic tees and the variety of colors. they are usually always on point with their color selection and an easy grab and go for everyday. the necklace is a new favorite from Nordstrom. it is such a fun summer accessory. the color variation makes it extremely versatile and the style is pairs perfectly with summer trends.

of course the outfit is finished off with my favorite shoe/bag combo. works with everythang. check out he end of the post for links on where to shop these items.

Vaseline® Intensive Care™ Healing Serums

this post is sponsored by Lunchbox however all thoughts and opinions are my own.

discover the healing power of Vaseline®
Vaseline® is introducing their first ever moisturizing body serums with 10X the healing power to reverse dry skin damage. serums are known for their advanced benefits in face and hair care and are now available for all over body moisture.
Vaseline® Intensive Care™ Healing Serums are formulated with superior, highly concentrated healing ingredients and come in three different non-greasy variants. i gave the Advanced Relief Healing Serum a try. living in such a dry climate my skin just screams for moisture and this Advanced Relief Healing Serum did just the trick. 
one of the perks of my job is that i get to work with amazing companies and feature the clothing they sell. this particular photoshoot is to feature the gorgeous summery white dress from Maude Boutique. they are a boutique based in Arkansas but you can purchase their products online. stocked in the boutique you will find trendy, flirty and fun clothing that are seasonally appropriate and affordable. this white dress is darling and i loved featuring it. 
having good skin for this photoshoot was essential. the perfect white dress needs glowing skin to compliment it and this Vaseline® Intensive Care™ Healing Serum did just the trick. want to know my favorite thing about recommending products? it is when i can recommend a product that is effective, affordable and easy to find. you can pick up these Vaseline® Intensive Care™ Healing Serums at your local Walmart.

Fashion Friday Springtime Boho


summertime is the time for fun prints, bright colors and strappy sandals. this outfit embraces all of those things! the shoes have been a hot commodity on my instagram along with the tote. 'Huarache' sandals were a staple of the 70's and they are still a staple today. this particular Steve Madden pair is not only affordable but relatively comfortable. for a four inch heel that says a lot. the bag is Sam Edelman for summer with a great tribal print with beaded turquoise details and fringed poms that hang from the handles. it is very colorful and goes with everything.

remember a few weeks ago when i was raving about my high-waisted denim? i loved them so much i bought another pair in a different wash. high-waisted denim has been given a modern twist and it is much more wearable without looking too mom-ish. the top is my other recent double purchase. i loved this top in blush i knew that i had to have it in white for versatility.

these gorgeous spring blooms won't be hear for long and i am soaking up every minute with them. be sure to visit the end of the post for shopping details.

Sheena Sujan Eyelash Review


the makers of Sheena Sujan Eyelashes generously offered to send me their line of false eyelashes to try out. to know me is to know i have a thing for lashes. i use Latisse, i wear false lashes and i have dabbled in the eyelash extension pool a time or two. Sheena Sujan Eyelashes are designed to imitate the lashes of all your favorite Hollywood Classics. Elizabeth Taylor, Ginger Rogers and Audrey Hepburn are just a few in the lineup. you can achieve your favorite look of your favorite Hollywood Bombshell with a little glue and a lot of sass lash!

i thought the quality of the lashes is definitely competitive to other luxury false lashes that i have tried but not as high of a price point. they last through enough wears to make them over qualified for the price. inexpensive lashes will last you a handful of wears but investing in a nicer pair of lashes will last you much longer. i like that the line offers a comprehensive variety of styles that allow you to be as dramatic or as subtle as you like. all lashes look stunning when worn.




shown above are several of the styles offered. be sure to visit http://www.sheenasujan.com/ for more information or to order your lashes.
