If you haven’t already, you please check out The Asterisk Boutique – a contemporary women’s clothing boutique in Dixon, Illinois, that is ran by a small team and the sweetest owner. The styles available are perfect for bodies of all sizes.
If you follow the boutique on Instagram, you can get some serious inspiration on how to wear what is available on site. And you don’t have to be in Illinois to shop. 😉 You can shop right from here.
The kimono below is from the boutique’s fall collection. Can you tell by the beautiful burnt orange color? The great thing, is that it is super light, which makes it easy to wear it as we transition from summer to fall.
On the first look, I wore the kimono with a plain white tank, distressed shorts and my favorite wedges. Then accessorized with three tiered earrings, animal print bangle and my wooden watch.
Hi, my name is Rose. I am starting second grade this year and soon will be seven years old. Today, I’m taking over the blog to share my favorite back to school outfits.
First, I want to thank Lilypop Baby for my bows. I love them all, the pretty colors on the rainbow bow, the glitter on the pink one and the silver touch on the blue one; which is also one of my favorite colors. 🙂 Keep scrolling to see how I styled my outfits with these pretty bows.
I also want to thank Little Hippie Threats for sending me two cute t-shirts, one that says Oh Grape and one that says Healthy Hippie – which you’ll see on social media. 😉 I just thought they were both so cute when I first saw them. The Big Rainbow bow I am wearing with this outfit I got at Claire’s and it’s from Jojo’s collection.
Happy Friday Y’all! The last two weeks have been pretty crazy. But I am back with fresh content and outfit ideas. 😉 My latest obsession is this soft and feminine pinstripe fabric; the best thing is that there are so many styles to choose from, dresses, blouses, rompers, you name it. I found this cute dress and couldn’t leave it behind; I mean look at the sleeves. I paired it with my super comfy wedges, a neutral clutch and minimal jewelry – which you can shop right from this post. So, keep scrolling to find similar options.
Savannah! Knowing that I lived in Georgia for a few years before, you probably expect me to say that I have visited Savannah several times. Truth is, that we had to move away for me to become interested in visiting. For whatever reason, we always traveled South, to Florida. On this last trip to Georgia, I decided that Savannah was a MUST! And I’m glad that we did it.
Day 1 – We arrived and checked in at Hotel Indigo on Bay Street. The staff was welcoming and resourceful. The room was clean, modern and had a great view. After deciding what our night would look like, we went downstairs to Five Oaks Taproom for drinks and walked over to River St. for dinner at Chart House. We then walked around town a bit and called it a night – it’s age catching up with us. Just kidding! It’s really just parenthood. 🙂
I have found some similar options too and linked them below for you to check out and shop. The sandals in this look, I recently got at JCPenney. Let me tell you that I hardly ever shop there, but I’m glad to have found these. They go with everything and have quickly become a favorite. My clutch is also a cross-body from Kate Spade, another accessory that is on repeat because of it’s versatility. 😉 Last but not least, the watch is a Fossil and the earrings from a favorite Etsy Shop, Buddha Blossom Jewels.
If you have been to the blog before or are a friend on social media, you know that I am not big on makeup. However, when it comes to lippies and mascara, well that’s a different story. If there is one make up item that I must have, it is mascara. So when I got the opportunity to try Youniques’ Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+, I was excited. Having watched testimonials, video tutorial, and completed looks online, I was curious to see what the hype was about.
When I got my mascara from Julye, the first thing I noticed was the packaging, sleek and useful. The box had instructions on how to apply the gel and fibers, which came in handy the first few times that I used it. Though, my favorite feature was that the two-piece combo – transplanting gel + 3D fibers– came with a nice little pouch that makes keeping them together and traveling with them super easy.
I say traveling because I got it around the time I was on vacation in Georgia. This means I have been using it for about a month, which has giving me a lot of time to become a fan. While, I was a little skeptical at first, I have been proven wrong. First, unlike other mascaras that leave a black streak behind after I wash off my make up, this one comes right off.
The volume and length my lashes get from it are quite amazing. The fibers make my lashes seem much fuller than they really are. And a single application makes a big difference, but I use about three applications to get my desired results.
Now that you know how I feel about make up, you can guess that I also don’t spend a lot on make up. With that said, I feel that Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+ is very affordable, especially because it gives you results. Even though it’s a two-step application, it’s worth it and it doesn’t make applying mascara any more difficult. See for yourself in Julye’s tutorial video below.
