Tumblr Tuesday: Favorite Pics This Week 46

8.15.2017




Is this post not aesthetically pleasing or what!? I'm obsessed, it honestly reminds me of one of my favorite influencers aesthetic Erica Stoleman of Fashionlush. She loves black and white themed items and I'm a huge fan as well.

I think you can never go wrong with heading "back to the basics" ya know? At the end of the day all colors started from the color black....  that's just a little color history for ya lol.

At one point in my life I use to want a minimalist wardrobe, very clean, crisp. Black and white etc... but then I really thought about it. Ummm josh you love color too much lol. My wardrobe would not be the one to turn to for minimalism. 

I definitely think it is a must to have the essential black and white pieces in your wardrobe.

A nice blazer + pants, even some nice denim jeans would be great of course. That way if you can still pair them with something a little more dressy on the top. Versatility is key in a wardrobe. And speaking of versatility.. come on you really can't get anymore versatile than black and white. 

Plus if you're one of those people that don't like wearing straight black and white and you like to have some color thrown in there, you can always do so with your accessories, or your shoes etc. Do a statement color that would stand out against the black and white. You absolutely can't go wrong what so ever.

For the women a LBD is mandatory! Btw for those that don't know LBD (Little Black Dress).
Its that dress that you can just throw on without thinking about it, you're rushing last minute and don't know what you're going to wear to your event? Bam whip out the LBD and your problem is solved. Isn't that just perfect!? The easier the better right?

the focal decorating theme by the interior designers. The look may seem simple, yet it alone can
serve the purpose of adding mid-century style to your home. Industrial décor is all about clean
lines and simple designs that give an exotic look to your space. Let the nostalgic feeling of the
50's sink in and get creative in playing with patterns and vibrant colors. What has made the style
so popular among masses? We as masses are tired of the hard and tough routine and want to add
some change and uniqueness to our life style that cast a calming effect on our eyes and nerves.

Wood is never out of date when it comes to mid-century look:


Natural wood the central theme of all the interior decorators to achieve the mid century furniture look in one go. The modern wood furniture has lost its originality as it is either engineered or processed wood. Opt for high-quality furniture pieces of the 50's if you really want to achieve and incorporate the mid-century look in your interiors.

My Kinda Style

Sharing Some Style Inspo With You All



Don't you just love a good 90's VIBE!

I know I do! My overalls are my absolute favorite thing ever. 







To sum up my style in one word: #DIFFERENT


You will never see me trying to emulate someone else or not being 100% myself when it comes to my style. Now of course other people inspire me when it comes to fashion but I always keep things 100% me and genuine. Everyone is there own person so why would you want to be like someone else thats what I feel like ya know?

Like one of my absolute favorite people that I love to use as an example when it comes to originality would be @Pharrell. I adore this man when it comes to his sense of style! Ugh he's absolutely amazing and really so inspiring. He always creates different looks, starts trends, and such an innovator in the fashion industry as well as the music industry. He has been recognized in the fashion industry multiple times and has been seen at NYFW! (Example: When he presented his eco-friendly line) He's #ICONIC 

Okay so this next one should definitely not be a surprise to you what so ever...

I have done a couple posts about it.

ROCKING DENIM ON DENIM



I won't dwell on this topic too much because like I said I've talked about this plenty of other times before on the blog, but that being said I of course have to mention it. I think this is one of those things that absolutely anyone can pull off and look great in. (If its done correctly) 

Who doesn't have denim in their wardrobe? A nice denim button up, and denim jeans are a must in any and every wardrobe. Now you don't have to be obsessive like me and have like 4 or 5 denim shirts, a denim jacket, a million denim jeans, etc... but you should at least have something

In this post I'm wearing my absolute favorite denim shirt + it's the latest one I've gotten. Its no longer on the forever 21 website anymore unfortunately so I can't link it for you all but here are a ton of other great denim shirts.

It works in all seasons fall, winter, spring, and summer.. when do you not spot someone wearing denim? I'd like to know? I'll wait....


Still waiting....


Exactly! Lol

Btw outfit deets: Denim jacket: Rue21 Watch: Aldo Buttons: Hot topic Hat: Forever21 Similar here (I really want this fedora next) Denim Shirt: American Living

Your style will never go out of "style". I'm always re-inventing myself and trying out new things so my style is always fun and me. I think once you figure out what you like, what looks good on you, what doesn't look good on you, and what your vibe is, you're going to be unstoppable. Because lets be honest when you're doing you & be unapologetically yourself knowone can't tell you shit about yourself. Am I right or am I right?

That's all...


When I Need To Grab A Snack

8.07.2017
First off check out this page to get a tiny glimpse of some food

#FOODISMYFRIEND 🍔

I mean I know I'm not the only one out there! Right!?

So today I wanted to do a post that was a little different from my usual fashion posts, style, trends etc.

I want to share with you one of my other passion... FOOD lol. I love to eat, love discovering new little cafe's, restaurants and different little foods to eat. So I will be sharing some places that I'm sure are common to you and some that you may not be so familiar with.

Be sure to leave places that you love down in the comments as well. Especially if you reside in Texas like I do, I would love to give them a try!


No I don't know what these drinks are..  (the middle is a frappuccino that's all I know)

I am so obsessed with Starbucks and if you aren't.. why? I  am literally here almost ever single day. When I leave after work, on my way home, I'm there so much they know me personally.

Why? Not only are the drinks absolutely amazing but:
1. The environment is always very clean, peaceful, and relaxing

2. The baristas try to make you feel welcome and happy every single time you come through that door. And if you're there enough like me they may even know you by name. (And no nor jar by reading the cup.) My go-to drink order is either a Vinte(Large) Green tea lemonade and I ask for it to be extra sweet. 

3. Free WIFI! Come on don't judge, yes this is another reason why I love them. I for sure know I'm not the only one. Internet is everything now-a-days and everyone needs a free wifi connection. Starbucks isn't like some other places that either have a passcode or you have to buy something to use there wifi? Who TF are you? Lol #ThankYouStarbucks #FREEWIFI

I could seriously do an entire blog post on why I love Starbucks so much if you're interested comment or send me a message.

Okay now these! I'm obsessed ! I was introduced to these tasty treats from a friend and as soon as I popped them into my mouth I've wanted them! Im seriously craving some now just writing this blog post. Lol. They are so delicious and since they're organic they taste 10x better than any other gummy bears in my opinion.

Try letting them soak in your alcohol ugh thats a whole other story! BOMB AF, amazing. Trust me.

I'm obsessed with all things RESSES! Like seriously, from recess puff cereal, to recess cups, I'm sure anything recess that's edible I would absolutely love it. It's legit I have an obsession. The combination  of the chocolate and peanut butter is just complete heaven! I could definitely eat a whole bag of these instantly *snaps fingers*


I love snacks, treats, candy... like I can't wait for halloween to come around so I can just indulge myself lol. Yes I still go trick or treating and no I'm not too old for it.. One more year then I'll be done with it ( maybe) lol

I don't want to keep this post going on for days so I will catch you all on the next one!!

Before you go leave a comment with your favorite snack that you enjoy eating.


Tumblr Tuesday: Favorite Pics This Week 45

8.01.2017


Can you say SEX APPEAL!? Lol

I think its always beautiful to see someone comfortable in their own skin ya know. Be confident in who you are and how you look. I know not everyone has the same confidence level as others but make sure that you always see yourself in a positive light instead of negative.

Thats what I wanted to do with this post. I know some of you looked at some of these pictures and was like what the hell is going on here josh? Lol but 1. there are no boundaries to my blog I like to share content that I enjoy and content that I know will help other people in some way, shape, or form. But anyway yea I just wanted to share some empowerment as well as of course the sex appeal.

Just because something or someone looks sexy doesn't mean its necessarily "inappropriate" ya know.

Take a look at Victoria Secret Models? I'm sure there aren't people going eww what are they doing? Well there may be some but its probably verrryyyy few. 

I know not everyone is going to receive this message the same or look at this post the same, or see these pictures how I see them but all I have to say is grow the fuck up. I'm sure everyone has seen lingerie before. Its suppose to make you feel sexy about yourself and make you feel like "damn I'm hot" and that's a great thing! I think every woman and every man as well should feel like they are just the sexiest thing alive. You don't need validation from anyone else about the way you look because you know for yourself that you're the shit.

Now before I end this I have to recognize the beautiful and so so talented model Ashley Graham for being so confident and showing that anyone and everyone is beautiful and they're beautiful in their own way. There's no certain look that the word "beauty" has. Whether you're a size 2, 10, or 24 you're your own shining star and don't let anyone ever tell you otherwise. Do you, be confident, and slay.


Face Scrubs & Face Masks I Want To Try

7.29.2017

So I am a huge supporter of using face scrubs, face masks, etc. I think its always good too have a regime of cleaning your face with great products. So today I wanted to curate a blog post centered around all things beauty, specifically in the face area lol.

There are so many products out there that I've been hearing great reviews on and some stuff that I've always wanted to try.



This first product is one that I have seen many, many influencers and you-tubers do reviews on. The 24k Gold Face Mask by Peter Thomas. Now this face mask is a whopping $80! The product is described as "An ultimate luxurious anti aging treatment featuring 24k gold colloidal gold."

What its suppose to do? Improve the appearance of fine line and wrinkles for a youthful looking complexion. This is one that I'm definitely interested in.


Okay so this one is very interesting and I'm honestly dying to try it! It's the Milky Piggy Bubble Clay Mask. I've included a video below to give you all a visual of what exactly its suppose to do and look like. When I did my little snooping around on the internet for this product I saw a lot of mixed reviews. People loved it and said the aftermath was great & some hated it and said it didn't work. But hey everyone's opinion is different so definitely try it for yourself.

Check out this video review

Have you ever heard of mood rings, well what about mood masks!? Crazy right? I know, let me explain. So the MustaeV Mood Therapy Masks (from forever21 btw) comes in a four pack and there are 4 different "moods" and each do a different task.

1. Joy Mask (Grapefruit & Lemon)
2. Sadness Mask (Jasmine, Lily, & Orange Blossom)
3. Anger Mask (Orange & Apple)
4. Pleasure Mask (Apple, Lemon, & Muguet)

Okay so this G9 Skin 3D Volume Gum Mask seems hella interesting! Like gum for your face? At least thats what I thought it meant when I read the name of it lol. Its actually a black air sheet mask that has a gum-like texture. So I'm assuming its going to be like sticky maybe? Stretchy?

This mask contains a ton of different extracts including ivy, green tea chia seed, hibiscus flower leaf extract, pine sprout extract, to sum it up a bunch of healthy shit thats great for the skin. I love a good face mask thats filled with natural ingredients it just makes the skin feel and look flawless.

I can't wait to try these products out, and I hope you all will as well! If you have anymore masks that you love or recommend leave me a comment! :)


Must Have Monday

7.24.2017
These weeks are just flying by aren't they?

But here we are yet again with another Must Have Monday

So something that's really on trend

Velvet


In particular velvet blazers! This is very on trend right now and will definitely be seen a lot more in the winter time. Of course whose going to wear a velvet blazer when its 90 degrees outside? Not me!

But yes you definitely want one of these bad boys for this season. Now of course there are the high end brand blazers you can get this season. Like MANGO, or you can go very very high end and go with something from Saint Laurent. which this one is actually sold out! Now if you want a more budget friendly-ish blazer check this one out from asos.

Btw if you're going to be shopping at forever 21 be sure to use code EXTRA30 for an extra 30% off all sale items!


Like I know for sure I will be using it to get this olive colored bomber jacket! First off I'd like to say I love olive green! Its absolutely one of my favorite shades of green and second of all I have been in need of a bomber jacket since forever. Not only do I love the color but the other thing that has really got me wanting this jacket is are the patches! That has been a huge trend lately and I need this in my life pronto.

So I have been on the hunt for a iPhone 7+ case for my phone and I have a perfect one for me! Its the incipio case & I got in the clear/grey color. I actually bought mine from sprint but the one I have linked to is actually from was-mart. Which is way better because you get it cheaper than what I paid for it lol. Honestly the picture doesn't do the case justice, it looks way better in person. Plus I have the rose gold iPhone so it just slays.

So I recommend grabbing you one as well and slaying! You definitely won't be disappointed it's so sturdy and really keeps your phone protected but yet still stylish and cute.

Like isn't that what we all want? Lol. Protection + Stylish + Affordable!

Well I am going to keep things short and sweet for you all :) I hope your week is starting off in an amazing way. Last week was extremely exhausting for me so hopefully this week will be a lot better. I have high hopes so we shall see!

Until next week love you all so much and thanks as always for all the love and support you give me and the blog :) as well as my social media (Find all my social media here)
