Aldo Newhook Handbag First Impressions

Aldo Newhook Handbag

Shake those Monday blues, girl! I’ve got something a little different for you today but I think you may like it. Not too long ago I told you about some handbags I purchased on sale at Aldo and it seems that a few of you have been tip toeing over to the site to check them out too. I couldn’t do anything but smile and think, “These women are really shopaholics too!” LOL!

Since you guys seemed to be curious about my new bags I’ve decided to give you the scoop–starting with the Newhook bag I spotted in the mall. I’ve never paid much attention to Aldo’s handbags until I saw one of my friends carrying the cutest satchel one night. Since then, I’ve made it my duty to never pass up an Aldo. This mantra proved to pay off because I ended up walking right into this cute medium sized tote one day for $30. Score!

Best Dressed at the Billboard Music Awards 2015

Another award show, another fun filled night of fashion! I’m finally starting to come back to life after all the slaying at this year’s Met Gala but it looks like our favorite celebrities have geared up for another round of slay-fests at the Billboard Music Awards last night. Here’s a quick rundown on my favorite looks:

Chrissy Tiegen 

The couple that slays together, stays together! Sure, John Legend cleaned up pretty nice last night but his wife, Chrissy Teigen, was the true star of the show in this Balmain gown. She’s serving us pure old Hollywood glamour and I’m scraping my plate over here!

Best Dressed at the Met Gala 2015

When it comes to fabulous fashions, there’s no better place to get your fix than the Met Gala! The ever so glamorous annual fundraising event took place last night and almost broke the internet as celebrities cleaned up in their best to don the red carpet. The theme of the night was China: Through the Looking Glass, so the ladies were draped in tons of lace, silk, jewels and more to dazzle our senses. Here’s a roundup of the best looks of the night:


You had to know this was coming! Beyonce slayed the red carpet in this bedazzled Givenchy dress she paired with subtle Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. You can tell Bey was “feeling herself” as she posed and flicked it up for the cameras like a true diva. Work it, Bey!

Barbie Loves Forever 21 Haul & Swatches


Have I ever mentioned how much I LOVE Barbie? I was so obsessed with her as a child! I made my mom buy me countless dolls (including the life-size version), the bed set and so much more. So when I found out that Forever 21 had released a Barbie themed collection I got crazy excited. I still adore her! Barbie’s style and flair is iconic so there was no way I could resist sporting a few pieces from her super affordable collection.


Influenster Victoria Secret Vox Box Goodies!


It’s been a long time since I’ve qualified for an Influenster Vox Box program but the wait was so worth it!

I recently qualified for the #VSSportsBra program (lucky me!) so I received a Victoria’s Secret gift box filled with goodies for free!


Happy Anniversary Nordstrom!

The annual Nordstrom Anniversary sale is here! I enjoy all the new fall fashions but as a beauty junkie I’m so here for the makeup! There are a ton of new and exclusive beauty products to choose from this year but I have my eye on two pink sets from MAC and NARS. I don’t need anymore pink lippies but I can never resist limited edition goodies. Especially at a good price! The Anniversary sale special preview (and double points!) started yesterday and ends on the 17th for Nordstrom reward members. Not a member? You could sign up for a free debit card that links to your bank account so you can join the early access fun. Or you could wait until early access is over and shop with everyone else. The choice is yours. Just make sure you check out these amazing deals before they’re gone!

Vacation Hauling!

Time really flies when you’re on vacation! Four days passed right by me! While out in the sunny peach state, I had quite a fun time and did a wee bit of shopping as well. As you could probably tell from my beauty wishlist I have my eyes set on quite a lot these days but I kept it simple (and vacay budget friendly!) while shopping at Lenox Square and Phipps Plaza. I stopped by two of my favorite stores, Forever 21 and Nordstrom, to pick up some essentials. Check it out!
