July Mini Haul || AE & Macys

I did quite a bit of shopping in July. There was so many Black Friday in July sales, I swear every store had a sale, but I tried to contain myself and not put myself in too much debt. I did buy a few items that I’ve been wanting and was lucky enough to find on sale.

IMG_1382IMG_1384IMG_1385

How fabulous is this romper? I had been eyeing it for a while but I didn’t want to spend full price on it. It wasn’t something I HAD TO HAVE. I love the details of this romper. I love the fact that the gingham is navy and not black, the tie knot and the keyhole in the center. This AEO Knot keyhole Romper is very versatile, you can dress it up with a pair of ankle strap heels, booties or a pair of mules. The AEO romper is currently on sale for $17.98 and is available in sizes L and XL.

IMG_1408IMG_1409IMG_1410IMG_1417

These are Vintage Hi-Rise Jeans in the style Doodle Me Up. I had to order these in a 0 regular from American Eagle, this was the smallest size they had. Usually, I buy my jeans in short and sometimes for a 00 for Hi-Rise. So what I am getting at, is these don’t look or fit me like the model on the page. One Doodle Me Up are cropped on her and way too long on me and the jeans are a little baggy and on the model its a straight, tight fit. But I actually like how they fit me, how they look and feel. They have a more relaxed cool girl vibe, especially with the embroidery, and patch. These jeans are on sale for $30 and are available in several sizes.

IMG_1433IMG_1437

This top is only in XXL but there are 3 other tops to choose from. I love the gingham trend so when I saw this for less than $10 bucks, I had to get. I will have a Gingham lookbook soon! If you are interested in one of these tops, click here.

I’ve been wanting a Choker T-Shirt since last year and I finally purchased one. The fit is great and this tee is so stylish. You can wear it with anything and feel sexy and cool. This shirt is sold out but they do have it in other prints for $10. If interested, click here.

IMG_1373IMG_1376

How awesome are these AEO Vintage Hi-Rise Festival Shorts, Light Bright Indigo?! These shorts are so comfy and perfect for summer. They are a classic high waisted shorts with a bit of a twist. These are on sale for $30 dollars.

IMG_1422

When mules first hit the fashion streets, I wasn’t a huge fan of them but they have grown on me and now I’m obsessed! So if you use any form of social media, you have seen the Gucci mules. All the fashion bloggers have them. Well, I can’t afford Gucci but I bought a similar pair of them. I purchased these mules during the Macy’s Black Friday in July sale. These STEVEN by Steve Madden Razzi Mules are on sale for $49.43, originally $99 dollars! What a steal!

IMG_1423

When I found these during the Macy’s sale online, I had to get these! I mean for starters they are Rose Gold and Metallic which is a huge trend right now. The BCBGeneration Sabrina Mules in Rose Gold Metallic are currently on sale for $44.43. Both mules are very comfy and versatile. I’ve worn them with jeans, shorts, ankle pants, and a skirt. You can wear them for a casual cool girl look or for a stylish professional look.

Summer Vacation​​: Pigeon Forge, TN.

IMG_1210

IMG_1137

This year vacation, my family and I went back to Pigeon Forge, TN. This was our 5th time back. Usually, we rent out a cabin but this year we brought our RV, along with family friends. We stayed at the KOA which was awesome. It was right next to the strip where everything is at, so we got to everywhere within 5-10 minutes, it was behind the Old Mill area and a park so we were able to walk over there. There was a pool, a general store (where you can get snacks, drinks, they even had souvenirs), a laundry mat, and bikes to rent, wifi, and much more. If you don’t have a camper, they do have cabins you can rent out.

Day 1:

We got there on Saturday afternoon. We set up the camper/campsite, went to dinner and Walmart. Some mornings we would cook and then go out for that dinner or vice versa.

IMG_4241

Day 2:

We walked over to the Old Mill. At the Old Mill, they have shops, restaurants, and the Old Forge Distillery where you can taste samples of moonshine. I am not a big drinker, to begin with, I did try a few flavors, and Moonshine is not for me.

IMG_1135

For dinner, we went to Applewood Farmhouse (better known as Applebarn). First, the scenery is gorgeous. The food there is so delicious. If you ever visit the Pigeon Forge/ Gatlinburg area this restaurant is a must. If you do take a trip to Applewood make sure you go on a very empty stomach. The restaurant is family style. With every meal is served with complimentary family serving of their Apple Fritters and homemade Apple Butter (the best part), Applewood Julep, a choice of homemade farmhouse soup or salad, and dessert. When you decide which meal you want, you also get a choice of two sides that you share with your group.

IMG_1176IMG_1179IMG_1178IMG_1180IMG_1183IMG_1185IMG_1186IMG_1187IMG_1188

Day 3:

Our group of 9, we all traveled to Gatlinburg. There are so many things to do in Gatlinburg, there are shops, great restaurants, distilleries, attractions such as Ripley’s, white water rafting, enjoying the view on the Sky Lift, and so much more.

IMG_1194IMG_1196IMG_1193 IMG_1189IMG_1204IMG_1202

Day 4:

Was a day of exploring nature. We drove through the Great Smoky Mountains and the view is just breathtaking. We also traveled through part of Cherokee, NC to visit the Mountain Farm Museum and the Oconaluftee River Trail.

IMG_1259IMG_1260IMG_1262IMG_1264IMG_1267IMG_1270IMG_1279IMG_1276IMG_1282

Day 5:

My sister, our friend, and I went to The Island in Pigeon Forge which is a family fun eat, shop, play, and stay. My friend and I decided to get on The Wheel, a cute enclosed Ferris wheel. The Wheel was 200 feet high and it went around 6-8 times, I use to work at the Orlando Eye which is twice its size, I have to say I’ve been spoiled and I was a little judgemental. The ride was nice but it could have been better. We also checked out some of the shops on the strip.

Summer Trend: Lace Top

IMG_1076

Lace is such a huge trend for this Summer. When it comes to lace, you can either be daring by wearing lace items see through or you can be a bit more conservative. The most popular way I’ve been seeing is wearing a lace top or dress with a t-shirt underneath. When I saw this top, I fell in love with it and had to buy it. My favorite part about this lace tank top is, it came with the white cami tee but it’s not attached to each other, it’s two separate pieces.

IMG_1079

You can wear this lace combo in so many ways. With ripped crop jeans, black jeans, high waisted shorts, a maxi skirt.

IMG_1078

IMG_1077

This top is currently on clearance for $13.99. It comes in either Black/White and White/Gray in sizes XXS-XXL. If you’re interested in purchasing this cute top, click here.

From Kids Sizing to Adult Styling

If you don’t know, I am 4’10 on a good and weigh about 90 pounds, depending on what I eat and if I have been exercising. Because I am so petite I tend to buy a lot of my clothing from the kid’s section. I usually shop in Dillards or JC Pennys. If you haven’t been shopping in the children’s section, oh my has it changed since I was a kid. Children’s clothing is very fashionable now.

I purchased these dress within the past couple of years. When it comes to making kid’s size clothing more “adult” and stylish it all comes down to accessories. Whether it’s a belt, highly suggestion because children’s clothing tends to be straight and shapeless. Jewelry – a statement necklace or earrings, a nice watch, and Sunglasses. A hat if you choose to wear one, your purse and the shoes you choose to wear makes all the difference as well.

The first outfit, this is where the belt came in. The belt helps shape the dress and me. I went for a leopard belt to add some fun and separation of the dress. I also decided to carry my medium size snake print cross body bag to add character. I went for nude heels to complete the look, they make me look taller and are neutral with the bright orange dress and printed accessories.

IMG_1007IMG_1009IMG_1005

The Second outfit, again I added a belt to give me body. I this belt came with the dress. Since the belt is brown, I paired brown/tan accessories with the dress. That where the hat, sunglasses, and sandals come in. I decided on these wedge sandals instead of heels because of the chevron print. I feel like this is an outfit you would wear if you plan on being outside for a long period of time.

IMG_1012IMG_1017IMG_1019

The third outfit, I use to wear to work all the time. Even though the dress is color, you can still make it work/corporate appropriated.  I threw on with my blazer and pumps to give the dress a more professional look.

IMG_1023IMG_1026

The fourth outfit, I decided to keep it young and playful by adding sandals. I think this blue crossbody bag goes well with this peachy pink dress.

IMG_1031IMG_1027

 

Do you still shop in the children’s department as an adult? How would you wear these dresses?

Olay Daily Facials Daily Clean Review

Screen Shot 2017-06-09 at 9.56.36 PM
I first heard about these from an Instagram Ad and then I saw commercial for these. As I mentioned before, I don’t have a skincare routine. I use skin care products when I feel like I need them. What intrigued me about them, was when I do take off my makeup at night (I’m better about washing it off now) I just use Huggies Baby Wipes.  On days I wear more makeup than my everyday look, I notice the wipes weren’t removing all the makeup. I haven’t heard anything about these from any YouTubers and bloggers that I follow, so I thought I would still go ahead and give it a try. (Since I have purchased these about a  month ago, I have seen two bloggers have sponsor ads about these cleansing cloths.)

Product Info-

The Olay Daily Facials Daily Clean 4-in-1 Water Activated Cleansing Cloths are water activated cloths cleanse. It claims to have the feeling of a $100 spa facial. I have never had a facial before so I can’t say if this is true or not. However, my skin does feel amazing after using the Daily Clean Cloths. These textured cleansing cloths have the benefit of a scrubber, toner, cleanser, and mask to gently exfoliate the skin. It removes dirt, oil, makeup and even mascara. It works 2x better than a basic cleansing, and I totally agree with this statement. The face wipes combine a soap-free lather and active Olay conditioners to leave your skin clean, hydrated and smooth in less than one week. These are perfect for traveling when you are on the go, or for everyday use.  The Daily Facials are recommended for normal skin types. I have dry skin and these work great for me.

How it works-

The 4-in-1 Daily Facial Cloths are specifically textured, with soft cleansing pockets, to gently loosen up and lift away dirt, oil, and makeup. Your results are smoother skin in less than 1 week.
4-in-1 Formula
1. Cleanser – washes away dirt and make-up
2. Toner – essential cleansing formula tones skin
3. Mask – hydrates with essential Olay conditioners
4. Scrub – exfoliates to smooth skin’s surface

How to use it-

  1. Wet the cloth with water
  2. Rub together for a lather
  3. Cleanse (even around the eyes).
  4. Rinse out (for best results, and use cloth to wipe face)
  5. Throw away (do not flush)
It’s that simple! They suggest completing your routine to use Olay Complete Lotion All Day Moisturizer with SPF 15 for normal skin. I’ve used this moisturizer for years! At least a minimum of 5 years. I don’t use this at night but I do use this every single morning. You can find these pretty much everywhere. At Walmart, Target, Walgreens, CVS, Ulta, even Amazon. You can purchase either 33 cloth in a tub, or 33/66 cloths (not in a tub).
Sorry, I didn’t realize I couldn’t upload videos to my blog, with the plan I have. Here is the link! 
I love these cloths! From someone who went from using just Huggies wipes to these cleansing cloths, I can tell a major difference. 1) when I wake up and wash my face, I’m not still removing makeup, 2) I do have dry skin so sometimes the Huggies does dry out my face. After using the Olay Daily Facials Daily Clean 4-in-1 Water Activated Cleansing Cloths, my skin feels smooth, hydrated, and fresh. I can’t wait to see how these hold up in the winter.
Have you tried these? If, so what are your thoughts? What do you use to remove your makeup?

Summer Must Have: Kopari Body Glow

 

I received my Kopari Coconut Body Glow in one of my Bless Boxes, and I am so glad it was in there. I am in love with this body glow! It is the perfect shine, shimmer and glow for that summer bronzed look. When I want to look EXTRA glowy (is this a word?). I put this under my Pro Glow foundation and I use it on my neck and shoulders. I rarely wear shorts so next time I do I’m going to put some on my legs. I was nervous trying this because of the Coconut smell. I’m sensitive to certain smells and I usually don’t like coconut. But the body glow doesn’t bother me. I smell it when I first put it on and I’ll get a whiff of it throughout the day but, it’s not a constant smell.  Kopari Coconut Glow is vegan, sulfate-free, silicone-free, cruelty-free, & paraben-free

IMG_1038

Product Info:

The Coconut Body Glow contains natural pearlescent minerals to illuminate face and body. It hydrates and nourishes your skin but it’s also, lightweight and absorbs fast. It is $42 for a 3.4 oz bottle. (*Mine is not full size, I’m sure this is travel size. 1 oz/ 30 mL) It’s great for your skin if you have dryness, dullness and uneven texture, and have an uneven skin tone. This is from the benefits of Coconut Oil. I have heard the debate of using Coconut Oil for your skin is good for your skin and bad for your skin. They say it can clog your pores and cause breakouts. Most people with acne type skin tend to stay away from coconut oil.

“Since not all coconut oil is created equal, the source and processing greatly affect quality. Kopari’s coconut oil is sustainably sourced from the Philippine Islands and crafted to be ideal for everyone’s beauty routine. All thanks to its lightweight, hypoallergenic, straight-from-the-source purity, creamy texture, quick absorption, and sweet, yet subtle aroma. ” From Sephora.com

IMG_0940

 

How to Use:

You can use this as an all over body glow or add it to lotion for subtle radiance or apply the oil to the cheekbones, collarbones, shoulders, decolletage and brow bones as a luminous highlighter. The way I use the coconut body glow is, I add the oil to my face before foundation, my neck,  collarbones, chest and shoulders with a brush. It up to you if you want to use your fingers to dab it on or a brush. I only use a brush because I tend to make a mess. 🙄

Be sure to shake the product before using for the shimmer. Also, watch the temperature of where you keep this.

Kopari Oil

Ratings:

On Kopari’s website out of 236 reviews, the Coconut Body Glow has a 4-star rating. 155 people rated this 5 stars and 17 people rated this 1 star. On Sephora’s website out of 26 reviews, the Coconut Body Glow has a 3 1/2 star rating and 5219 loves.

You can purchase this on Kopari.com or on Sephora.com What are your thoughts on using Coconut oil? Do you use it or stay far away from it?

How to Reach Your Goals!

IMG_0802

Hey, ya’ll! How are you? It’s so crazy that it is already JUNE! I can’t believe it, where has the time gone! I know everyone says that, but seriously, I’m failing at my yearly goals. How are you doing at your goals? Leave me a comment to let me know. We only have 6 months to get it together 😩

IMG_0812

Here are a few of my New Years ResSome of my goals I want to achieve are:

  • Be healthier – I feel like I am doing so/so with this. I haven’t been eating pizza as much.
  • Save money- FAILING! My name is Joniamac and I’m a shopaholic.
  • Learn a foreign language – I really want to learn ASL. I use to know quite a bit when I was younger, and I want to learn how to sign.
  • Blogging goals: each month I set goals of what I want to achieve, my main goal is to blog more.

These are just a few of my goals. The next 6 months I’m going to work hard for them and for the next year.

IMG_0807 IMG_0818

So how are we going to achieve our goals? Here are some tips I find helpful:

  • Set Goals that MOTIVATES you! – You have got to want it. If your goals motivate you, it means it’s important to you.
  • Make sure your goals are REALISTIC. If you make goals that are impossible (so to speak) then you will feel defeated.
  • Make sure your goals are CLEAR. For example, say your goal is to learn a foreign language. It’s a good goal but it’s not clear because there are so many languages to learn and it doesn’t help you move in the direction you want to go in. Maybe you want to learn Japanese because you plan on doing an internship in Japan, or French because you plan on moving to Paris.
  • Have an ACTION PLAN– How are you going to achieve your goals. Most goals take work. Take them step by step!
  • SEE IT! Write down your goals, make it a checklist. Make sure you put it somewhere you can see it. I put my goals on my vision board, it helps me see and keep track of what I am trying to achieve (when I’m not being lazy) To help me keep up with my daily/weekly goals, I use an app called Clear. Clear is great because 1) My to-do list is on my phone. I don’t have to worry about writing it down on a sticky note and miss placing it. 2) You can create multiple organized, categorized list (whatever you want to name your list) 3) You can set a reminder for your task. 4) You can personalize the list with a theme. Click here for the link.
  • TELL PEOPLE your goals. It can be your best friend(s), your family, someone that you have a connection with. If you tell someone your goal, you are more likely to accomplish your goals. I finally told my friends that I was going to start blogging, tell them held me accountable.
  • Have a DEADLINE- Set a time on when you want to accomplish your goal(s).

Iluvsarahii x Colourpop Collab

If you don’t know who Iluvsarahii, she is a bomb makeup artist/beauty influencer. She started on Instagram and now she has a Youtube channel.

IMG_0902

The Iluvsarahii and Colourpop collaboration include:

2 eyeshadow palettes (4 shadows each) $18 each – Chic-y and $aucey

3 Lippies $6 each – Ultra Stain Lip: 951; Ulta Matte Lip: Mamacita; Ultra Glossy Lip: Curvii

3 Lip pencils $5 each – 951, Mamacita, Curvii

You can buy the items separate or the whole kit for $60.00.

So I’m going to start with the two products I don’t have the Chic-y palette and the Ultra Glossy Lip in Curvii (I also don’t have any of the lip liners but those are the same color as the lippies). The Chic-y palette is pretty but it was something I was drooling over. I was tempted to purchase Curvii but I’ve tried peachy nudes before and it doesn’t look good with my skin tone.

Chic-y $18:

Is a pressed powder shadow palette. It has 4 shades of neutrals, pinks, and browns. There are both matte and metallic finishes.

Distressed: A matte vanilla

Vivacious: A metallic pink champagne

Freckles: A matte warm mocha
Noche: A matte black brown

 

Screen Shot 2017-06-01 at 10.52.46 PMScreen Shot 2017-06-01 at 10.53.03 PM

Curvii $6:

Is a light peachy nude in a crème finish. The gloss is medium coverage gloss with a creamy finish.

Screen Shot 2017-06-01 at 10.54.27 PM

Here are the items I purchased:

$aucey $18-

IMG_0904

Is a pressed powder shadow palette with 2 matte and 2 metallics of orange/coral, and purple. The shadows are super pigmented, smooth, soft, applies evenly, and easy to blend. The colors in the $aucey palette are gorgeous! I usually don’t wear colorful eyeshadows but I have a feeling I will be playing with $aucey a lot. This palette is very versatile, I’ve seen so many different looks on Instagram.

Heavy Glam: A vibrant duochrome orange with a pink flip
Chic Happens: A matte cool mauve
Lit: A vibrant metallic purple
Razy: A matte blackened plum

IMG_0914_FotorIMG_0915

Both of these photos are in natural lighting. The top photo is in the direct sunlight, the bottom photo is in the shade.

Here is the makeup look I created with $aucey. I am not a makeup artist, but I like the way this turned out.

IMG_0901

951 $6-

Is an Ultra Satin Lipstick,  with a creamy consistency and a satin finish. 951 a medium warm nude.  The pigmented lipstick is long lasting but is not kiss proof and it does transfer. I find this shade a perfect nude, it’s not too light and it’s not too dark.

IMG_0907IMG_0924

IMG_0883

 

Mamacita $6-

Is an Ultra Matte Lipstick. It is a beautiful deep burgundy. As soon as I saw this I knew, I HAD TO HAVE this. I love dark/deep burgundy lipsticks. I like this one because it has more of the purple tones but not a dark plum color. Mamacita is a thin lightweight lipstick, with a bold pigment, matte, long wearing, and transfer proof. Just be careful with the lipstick because it does smudge. I will say I’m not the best at putting on lipstick, so it could just be me.

Pants Life: What I Wear to Work

I work part time at an Art Museum and its freezing in there. So unfortunately for me, I have to dress warm even though it feels like 95 degrees outside. I typically wear pants 1) to keep warm and 2) I wait to the last minute to get ready and I need a quick and easy outfit.

So all of the pants are from Old Navy Petite besides the Olive pair. I ordered them back in November during all the holiday sales. These pants are not only chic but comfortable. These pants are versatile, you can dress them up or go for a casual look, you can wear flats or heels with them as well.

IMG_0686IMG_0703

IMG_0726

IMG_0750

The first outfit are these Relaxed Mid-Rise Harper Trousers in Black Leopard and a maroon sweater and lace-up flats. The leopard print and maroon pair well together. This outfit is for those casual days in the office or for those days when you are on your feet.

These flats are on clearance for $12 from American Eagle. These are all sold out in petite but, are still available in maternity. Click here if interested.

IMG_0670IMG_0693IMG_0678IMG_0682

The second outfit is more professional. I wore this to a luncheon meeting. The outfit still has the black and white professional element, but the polka dots in the pants and the red lace up heels adds vibrancy and fun to it.

IMG_0706IMG_0705

IMG_0717

IMG_0709

The third outfit is bold and by far my favorite. I put two of the biggest trends for Spring/Summer together and made it work appropriate (depending on your dress code). The material on the yellow pants was not what I expected. They are a bit thick and heavy, but once you have them on, you won’t notice.

IMG_0723IMG_0737

IMG_0740IMG_0727

IMG_0738

If the yellow on yellow is too much for you, but you still want to play with color, I paired this Who What Wear Target top with dark olive green high waisted pants. The yellow in the top pops more with the dark pants. If you’re not up for wearing heels at work, I’ve worn sandal with this outfit during an outside event. Flats will work as well.

April Bless Box Unboxing

I don’t want to be a negative Nancy, but April’s box was a huge disappointment for me. I was truly excited about one product. It’s not that the products aren’t great, it’s just that some of the products, I know I’m not going to use and other products I’ve gotten before. The boxes are starting to get a little repetitive. Also, shipping for this box was awful. I hate waiting on shipping! And paying for shipping, to be honest. I know there is a process, but I feel like it shouldn’t take that long for packages to ship. Anyways, I got my shipping confirmation on the 22nd and I didn’t receive my box until the 29th. I mean, what’s the point of it being April’s box, if we are getting it in May? To top it off, my Colourpop eyeshadow was shattered 😩😭😭 I think I was expected to be blown away and I just wasn’t. I know they are still new and trying to work out the kinks, but they should let customers know when there is a problem or a delay. With the delayed box, I was expected to be blown away and I just wasn’t.

April’s theme is Let Your Beauty Blossom. What’s in the box:
