So I have had a little obsession with Fixer Upper on HGTV lately and have fallen in love with JoJo’s design taste. Everything is very French Country. There are lots of feminine pieces mixed with rustic wood finishes giving a very polished, yet relaxed vibe. Believe it or not, all of these items below are from Target. I have been so impressed with their decor lately and basically want it all for our new house. I put together some of my top pics that fall into the French Country theme. Let me know what your design style is below!
I know it’s still February, well almost March, but I’m actually ready for summer. I am fully aware I am always saying how much I love winter. But the other day I looked in the mirror and the person looking back at me looked like a vampire. Kidding, but I am that pale. I am all for that porcelain skin, but I mean, I need some color stat. A few days after I realized how translucent I was, our weather suddenly heated up and truly felt like summer. I laid out in the sun for a few days to soak up all the vitamin D I could and it felt amazing. I even got a little bit of color! It didn’t last long though, it started pouring last night. Anyways, that little tease made me super excited for the summer and I even pulled out some summer clothes last night. I organized all my bathing suits too which made me more motivated to get in shape. Little tip for you guys. Put on a bathing suit tonight. It will give you that kick in the butt to get in the gym. So here are some pieces that I’m currently inspired by (some I own). I’m even going to play some country music right now. Drivin around song anyone? (On a side note: go watch #candidlynicole on youtube. The funniest thing ever, even Andrew loves it. There are clips on AOL Originals & the Candidly Nicole channel. Loove.)

Who said tech stuff was just for guys? There are so many cute products out on the market that are perfect for the people in your life that love gadgets. Long gone are the days of ugly charging cords and headphones. I have searched the internet for the most fashion forward tech items that are perfect for gifting. Frends, ban.do, and Kate Spade are my top brands for super cute gear. The best part is, you can order all of these online so you don’t even have to leave the house!
Hi friends! I have pulled together my top pics for jackets this fall. I separated it into four categories. Each type of these jackets are so versatile and will keep you both warm and fashionable this season. Let me know in the comments which type you are most looking forward to wearing. Happy shopping!Leather 1/2/3
Today’s look is all about adding a pop to something simple. Jean shorts and t-shirts are basically what I live in, especially in the summer. So when I want to spice it up a bit, I will add in a bag with a pop of color and some fun bracelets. I am loving all the printed t’s that are out right now. This one is by StyleLately and I have worn it like three days in a row…whoops. I also am loving my arm candy. I live in my T&J jewels along with my Haute Betts beaded bracelets. I hope you all are having a great week so far!
Happy Friday! I hope you all had a great week…hopefully a productive one! I started packing last night with Andrew and we got so much done! Our kitchen and living room already look really empty. I took most of our hanging decorations down which really dulls down our apartment. It is sort of sad, but I am so looking forward to Seattle! Have a great weekend everyone and I’ll see you on Monday!
You may have seen Shea Moisture body products at Target, well….now they have makeup! I was so excited when I saw the display one day as I was walking to the check out line. Clearly I had to stop! I haven’t seen many reviews online so I thought I’d share the products I have been trying with you.

Up first we have the lip stain and glossy overcoat. Mine is in the shade NICOLA, a gorgeous bright fuscia. Let me tell you, I swatched this yesterday on my hand, and it still is there! So as far as staying power goes, this won’t go anywhere. I love using lip stains in the summer because you can apply them in the morning and are good to go all day long. This also comes with a clear gloss on the other side which creates a nice shine on top of the stain. I am definitely wanting to try more shades of this product.
Up next, we have concealer. I grabbed the shade SNOWDONIAN FAWN, which is the lightest shade. This is formulated to reduce fine lines and provide great coverage. I found this to be super light for my skintone. I felt like the next shade up was really dark, so I’m not sure if any of the shades are a good match for me. As far as performance goes, I found this to be very hydrating and gave me pretty good coverage. The only thing that bothered me is that it seemed to wear off during the day. I will use this on lazy makeup days, but not for big events or when I need my makeup to last a really long time.

Mascara time! This is the lengthening mascara in BLACK. They also carry a volumizing formula as well, which I really want to try. This is an awesome mascara. I am super picky when it comes to my lashes. Here is what I like about this one. The formula is not too wet, so it is pretty hard to make your lashes look clumpy. I am a fan of combining different mascaras, so I have been applying a volumizing mascara first, then using this on top to add length and separation. Honestly, if you use an eyelash curler after your lashes have dried, you will get MEGA length!
Last up we have the lip and cheek balm in BO-KAAP PEACH. Another one of my favs. This will add a hint of color to both your lips and cheeks in a very flattery hue. I like using this equally on my cheeks and lips. It really gives my cheeks a pinched look to them and never feels tacky on the skin. As far as my lips go, this is a great natural color and I love adding a clear gloss on top.
(fyi – this comes as a refill so you have to buy the compact as well)
Let me know if you have tried any other Shea Moisture makeup items!
So I am slightly obsessed with dolphin shorts. My upcoming outfit posts are FULL of them. First of all, they are so comfortable, and second, I love all the fun designs they have. You can wear crop tops with them or a regular shirt and tuck in just the front part. Both my shorts and shirt..oh actually and my bralette are from Shop Lately! I have been on their website like a hawk looking at all the new pieces coming in. One of my favorite ‘shops’ on the site is Publik. Check them out, they have really cute items. This look is so comfortable and casual. I feel like I should be at the beach walking down the pier with an ice cream in hand. Right? What are your favorite ways to wear printed shorts? I hope you all had a great week, and hopefully have some fun weekend plans!
I just posted a fashion haul on my channel and here is everything that I could find links to (LINKS BELOW PIC). I got great items from Forever 21, Target, Windsor and H&M. A few of the tops are different, but a close match. I seriously love these new pieces I found. They are so great for spring and summer. Are you proud of me for getting some colorful things?? Make sure to watch my haul to see everything in person!
I feel like florals are everywhere I go these days. I am starting to really love the flirty and feminine vibe they give. Try to incorporate some florals into your wardrobe somehow this season. Even if it’s just a bracelet or phone case, you will still get that springy feeling. Here are some pieces that I’m obsessed with.
