Essential oils are a wonderful way to better your skin or remedy your health in a natural way. They are wonderful for so many different beauty needs and regimens. I’d rather use these any day than putting chemicals onto my body. Alicia Phillips of The Happy Hippie provided me with a free copy of her book, The Ultimate Guide to Essential Oils, and I learned more than I knew before!!  Here’s a basic guide for using essential oils for beauty. The Basics Skin Care Essential oils like lavender, peppermint, and chamomile are wonderful for fighting acne. So are citruses like lemon and orange! Plus you smell good! LavenderRead More →

53 Kingsley is an online boutique out of the west coast. I was lucky enough to win a giveaway toward store credit and I was so excited. The clothing is so chic! I want to show you what I bought. I decided to use my credit toward a Boho Lace Trim Top and toward the Mile High sunglasses. I love both of my choices so much! The top is so pretty and detailed! I love that it’s white, so I can pair it with so many things. THE DETAILING though! The top has beautiful cutouts, as do the sleeves and toward the bottom. The bottom itself hasRead More →

This week is my birthday week! So with that in mind, I wanted to make this week’s picks something fun, like a party. I chose a confetti theme and choosing the products was so fun! I first chose a bomber jacket. This jacket has a white base, which I love and you will see with a lot of these products. It makes the confetti pattern stand out so much more. What I like about this jacket is that while the pattern stands out, it’s not anything too crazy. And you can wear it with so many outfits! Next I moved on to a little wallet. I loveRead More →

Everyone has a favorite pink or a favorite red or a favorite just plain loud lipstick color that they love to rock. But when it comes to your nude lipsticks, how did you find your favorite? It’s a little more difficult to find a nude shade that goes perfectly with your skin/hair tones. Now there may be a way to find out what your perfect nude lipstick color is. Just match it to the color of your nipples! Doctors off of the NBC show, The Doctors, revealed this information on a recent episode. In the now viral clip, the audience gets a kick out of it as the threeRead More →

honeybee picks

It’s my birthday month! Since the meaning of my name – Melissa – is honeybee, I wanted to make this week’s theme honeybees! Honeybees are super important. They pollinate flowers and food such as apples and broccoli. The ecosystem can’t live without them. So think about that and show your support by wearing a honeybee! I purposely didn’t choose any items that were super yellow/black because I felt that was cliche. Here are the awesome products that I have chosen. The first thing I chose (and I chose it immediately) was the shirt. It’s a plain white collared shirt, but there are little bees coming out of theRead More →

  Get fashionable like a Disney Princess with some spring outfits! I have chosen 5 Disney princesses to be inspired by for this post, but if you all love it I can do more! I’ve put together 5 different looks that you can wear this spring while the weather warms up. Scroll all the way to the bottom to see the whole collection and shop the items directly. Moana Moana is my favorite Disney film right now. It tells a wonderful story of a strong female going on an adventure. The film includes a lot of history and diversity. PLUS. Lin-Manuel Miranda. For this springRead More →

I love clothing, but what I love more than clothing is cheap clothing. I love buying fashionable pieces on a budget! It’s great to know that you can look stylish for not a lot of money! I love when I get complimented on my clothing and I can respond with “Thanks! I got it for $5!”. One of my favorite shopping rules that I’ve learned through life is – “Will you use this x amount of times?” And apply the price in place of the x. If not, it’s usually not worth it. So when you get a piece of clothing for $5, you’re more thanRead More →

  Cinco De Mayo is a huge holiday for not only people in Mexico, but in America as well. Many Americans, however, do not even understand the concept of what the holiday is about. They just want to dress fashionably and go drink tequila (which by all means, you can do on any day!). The first step to not culturally appropriating your outfit while celebrating is to learn about the holiday and the fashions that inspired Mexican fashion for centuries. Cinco De Mayo in Mexico is a celebration of the defeat over the French army at the Battle of Puebla. The battle took place on May 5,Read More →
