Schutz Dupe

Hello, Everyone!!!.
As we all know, major designers set the trends of the fast fashion stores. Some trends catch on quicker than other, case in point the Juliana by Schutz although it is not a very expensive shoe, many retailers have duped these amazing shoes. When I saw these sandals at Target I immediately thought about the Juliana's, they are the perfect heels to wear at a summer wedding. For the wedding I paired these heels with a hybrid navy dress that showcases two current trends of the moment, the off the shoulder and one shoulder, it was the perfect match.

My Current Favorites

Hello, Everyone!!!.
I'm sorry I've been M.I.A lately but I've been putting my focus on job hunting this summer. I had two interviews so far but unfortunately  I was not offered the position. It has been a real learning curve for me but it hasn't stopped me from continuing my job search. I have faith that what is meant for me , will be for me. On another note, I can't believe the summer is half way through however I've  discovered  a few things that has become my summer favorites which I listed below.
1.Glamour: If you are unaware the September issue is the most coveted issue of the fashion year. Not only is the issue the biggest , it prepares you for the upcoming fall season. I've been wearing my hair in its natural state this summer and I've been looking for ways to wear my hair in the colder months. I am happy to see that hair accessories are in ,so I can adorn my fro with dazzling goods.

2. Movies & Chill: The Secret Lives of Pets because I am a big kid and every weekend my boyfriend always catches me watching cartoons,  so it was right up my alley.

Jason Bourne: I joked that Matt Damon may be too old for this series but it was actually good.
*spoiler alert they killed my girl Julia from Save the Last Dance which is one of my favorite teen movies 😐.

Now You See Me: This one was my boyfriend choice, although I didn't see the first one I actually liked.  If they make it into a trilogy I will go see it with him of course.

3. Adult coloring: There is a reason why children love to color and their parents as well. It is so calming and I honestly feel less stressed because my mind is not all over the place. I like to turn off my TV and just color away in complete silence.

4. Clutch: I like to call it my "throw it in the bag" clutch because I literally throw everything I need, just the bare minimum it comes in handy on date nights.

5. Highlighter: If you ever in Five Below you should check out their makeup section.  I've found this amazing highlighter that is perfect for wearing over your foundation or mixed in for all over glow.

6. Nail polish:  Like I've mentioned before I am on a job hunt and this grayish nude is the perfect color to wear to interviews or in my case all summer too.

7. Milani lip liner: I like to wear it as a lip color and sometimes I add gloss to the middle of my lips. It's the perfect lip color but better

8. Sonia Kashuk knockout eye shadow palette : I only wear neutral eye shadows so this palette is perfect. If you are like  me and need help with application, this palette shows you the way.

And lastly my fave sunnies for obvious reasons
*not a new fave  ðŸ˜Ž


Until next time,  XOXO
