Oh Thursday, how I love you! Count down to the holiday weekend. It’s Birch box time! The folks at Birch box want to know how we really feel about this month’s box and are giving away full-size versions of everything in the box when we tweet our responses. Pretty cool! The May box is a bit different, take a peek:
Yep, that’s a pen! I love a good pen so I was happy to see this addition to the box.
Beauty Protector – perfect for any type//COOLA – Moisturizer with SPF perfect for summer//Joie – a new scent with mandarin, rose, and sandalwood//Sumita – eyeliner that goes on smooth!
Besides the most practical and pretty pen, I’m going to cheat on my Lancome Eyeliner pencil. I’ve used this brand for 20 years and now trying the Sumita eyeliner. Do you have a long time beauty product you’d ditch for something new?
I’m working half a day today to attend my baby niece’s graduation from Pre-K, Go Corryn! It’s OOTD #11 and guess who has on a dress, that’s right me, no jeans today!
Now the fan! I bought the fan at my sorority’s regional conference. I’m an ATL native so I love all the craziness that is the RHOA especially Miss USA Kenya Moore with her Gone With the Wind Fabulous attitude and the infamous fan. This dress had me twirling around like Kenya…LOL!
Maxi (Walmart) – snagged for $17.97,but similar here – $19.88
And pretties, this is the last day to enter to win a pretty cute necklace and earring set from Kenye over at Glow Kouture Style. Check out the fab goodies at her online boutique Bella Ruche Boutique and enter below!
Seriously counting down to the Memorial Day Weekend and fun times with family and friends. Today I’m sharing an inspired DIY project I first saw on the cool and creative blog a pair and a spare.
I thought, wow I can make those and I am always down for a DIY project! So I hurried over to JoAnn Fabric and Crafts and found some pretty rhinestones, earring backs, and jewelry adhesive and the project was on! First, I laid out the design, trying different shapes and color combos and of course decided on pink and green. Then, I glued the final design to some plastic strips I cut out of an old plastic binder. And last, I cut off the excess plastic and let the adhesive dry overnight.
I love me some bling

I love the finished product and will be wearing them soon! Have you tried a DIY jewelry project?

Hello and Happy Friday Pretties!
I’m still recuperating from the Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal season finales. What a night of television. I laughed, I cried, I was speechless. Everything from the writing to wardrobe, perfection. Hats off to Shonda Rimes. It’s time for some goodies…here ya’ go!
Hello there pretty ones,
I hope your week is winding down nicely. My week has been busy as usual but I’m not complaining. I’m soooo ready for the season finale of Scandal. Olivia Pope dresses her buns off, for real. Today I’m posting some of my favorite looks and accessories. Pic heavy post folks! First up, that coat -YESSSSS!
In a pale pink, with relaxed, open collar
Simple elegance in black and white
Another open collar in cashmere with leather details
Military done right
Understated glam with mother of pearl face and diamonds
Olivia Pope’s wardrobe is very neutral focused (white, cream, tan, camel, soft pastels pale pink, pale green), with simple lines but amazing details in quality fabrics. The show’s costume designer is Lyn Paolo.
I’m debuting my summer hair today along with the OOTD. I like to change up my hair and I’m not afraid to rock a wig or hair weaves. My favorite is big curly hair in a brown or red. So easy to throw on my wig and go! Now, on to the OOTD. A belt saved the day for this outfit. The top was swallowing me so I added the belt which finished off the look.
Top (Target) – here
Jeans (Macy’s) – similar here
Necklace (Ashley Stewart) – similar here
I rarely wear belts because frankly I don’t think I have waist, but I figured out that’s what the belt is for, duh! Belts are a new found accessory I’ll be incorporating into my wardrobe a lot more frequently. What’s your go-to accessory?
I usually don’t go out too much on work nights, but I had a blast last night at a pre-season game for the Atlanta Dream! They won 97-47 against Brazil! I was not and still am not a sports girl, but I definitely support women and girls involved in sports, which I believe especially for young girls, helps them build confidence and develop good fitness habits!
It’s been awhile since I posted some home decor stuff. So, today I’m posting the finishing touches on my mirrored table in the living room, which I posted here. Family photos add life to any space. I ordered 4×6 prints of my favorite photos from Shutterfly and snagged some inexpensive frames from Ross, similar here and here.
Frames and Photos
Sleek and Rustic frames in silver
Rustic leaf detail
Sleek in a matte finish
Family, gotta love em’
I would say I’m done, but I’m sure I will do some rearranging down the line. But for now, I like it! How do you display family photos?
Did you all enjoy the weekend? I did! The best weekends are when I get to spend time with family and friends. Birthday party for a friend turning 40 – too much fun. Brunch with the fam and of course me and Mom had to sneak in a mini shopping trip. Since I like to shop, I generally put my own outfits together, a top, jeans, necklace or bracelet, add shoes and a bag and I’m done. But y’all remember awhile back I posted about Sears here and some really cute, reasonable outfits. Well, they’re at it again for Spring/Summer. Some of my faves.
All these outfits are under $100, real bargains, all on trend. You can get all the deets here.
Have you checked out Sears? While you’re there, sign-up for their rewards program so you can save even more.
