OOTD: Trendy Tuesday

 

Let’s Go Nationals!

Good morning and happy Tuesday beauties! As I’m sure you all know, last week started the MLB Playoffs, and this year much to many peoples’ surprise and even more peoples’ excitement, the Nationals made it! While I have to admit I have never been a die hard baseball fan, I do love going to the games and (as I’m sure you can imagine) especially the playoff games! So, we know the Nationals had a bit of a rough start last week, losing the first two of their five game series against the San Francisco Giants, but last night they finally pulled it together and won 4-1! Wahoo! I am really hoping and preying that they can just keep it going until this weekend so Hilary and I can go to yet another game!

But, now hat I am done rambling about what I am hoping to do this weekend… This week’s Trendy Tuesday is a chic and stylish outfit that is perfect for a fall baseball game! I t may not be the most fashionista approved ensemble, but I cannot stand when girls look like they’re going to a college football game in their sundresses and heels! This is a baseball game, ladies… this is not a fashion show… (and trust me, there are VERY few times in life I will ever say that!) So, without further ado, here is this week’s Trendy Tuesday… Nationals style!

Outfit Of The Day - Trendy Tuesday Washington Nationals Style

Tops: Nationals T-Shirt, $35; J.Crew Chambray, $78 $66 – On Sale Now!; Pants: Only, $50; Boots: Tory Burch, $495; Watch: Michael Kors, $225; Hat: MLB, $19.

Is that not the perfect game day outfit or what?! Well, I know that I am loving it, and (fingers crossed!) I will be wearing it to the game this weekend if the Nats can keep it together for two more games and continue on in the tournament! So, if you are going to be there, let me know! I’d love to see ya and your beautifully shining face! :) I hope y’all have an amazing Tuesday, and enjoy the weather! It is going to be gorgeous again today!

OOTD: Workout Wednesday

Hello there beauties! I hope you are all having a fantastic Wednesday so far, and that you’re as excited about Workout Wednesday as I am! So, with the weather getting to be typical September cold one day, super hot the next, Northern Virginia weather, this may be our last summertime Workout Wednesday outfit, but who knows… It may not! Anyway, getting back on track, I am personally a huge fan of fun workout tank tops… They are one of my favorite things ever, and if I could wear them everywhere I probably would (okay, maybe not everywhere, but you know what I mean!).  Even more, I especially love workout tank tops with fun quotes! There are some super sassy ones out there, and I just love them all! If that isn’t motivation for you when you look at yourself in the mirror at the gym and staring back is a fun, sassy quote telling you how awesome you are or to workout harder, then I don’t know what is! So, in the spirit of the fun tanks, I bring you this week’s Workout Wednesday

Outfit Of The Day - Workout Wednesday

Tank: Etsy, $29; Sports Bra: Nike, $43; Shorts: Nike, $28; Shoes: Nike, $$80

If you hadn’t ever noticed, and you couldn’t tell from this outfit, I am definitely partial to Nike products.  I am also a huge fan and supporter of Under Armour, but for some reason Nike just tops the list for me.  Nike running shoes are the only ones I will buy. This is because I have always had such a great experience with them and they never hurt my feet (I have had a lot of problems with shoes hurting my feet or rubbing when I run… Talk about awful!), so I know what I like and I stick to it… That just happens to be Nike (I would say my favorite is Lululemon, but it’s a little out of my price range at this point in time…. This girl doesn’t have a job at the moment!) But, now off my soapbox about Nike and back to Workout Wednesday

This outfit is so fun with it’s pop of color and the fun quote on the tank! I don’t know about you ladies, but it really makes me want to go change and hit the gym! Do you have a favorite brand for workout clothes other than Nike? What is your favorite type of outfit to wear when you hit the gym or venture into the great outdoors for your daily exercise?

Trendy Tuesday: Black + White

 

Back to The Basics With a Chic Black + White Ensemble

Good morning and happy Tuesday everyone! I hope y’all had a fantastic Monday yesterday, and you’re ready for the better part of the week to start (I mean anything is better than Monday, right?).  Well, for the first time in what seems like forever (I really am sorry about that guys, it was a crazy summer with the pool and all of the stuff that went along with that!) we have a fantastic outfit of the day! I’m so glad this is the first one to get me back into the swing of things, because Trendy Tuesday is probably one of my favorite days for OOTD posts (other than Workout Wednesday of course, because I am super lazy lately and just love workout clothes because they’re so comfy…)!  So, today we have a super chic little ensemble of a black and white top from Tory Burch paired with a super trendy pair of leather shorts!

Outfit Of The Day: Trendy Tuesday - Chic Black And White Ensemble

Top: Tory Burch, $350; Shorts: J. Crew, $450;  Shoes: Saint Laurent (YSL), $795; Clutch: Valentino, $855; Bracelet: Mulberry, $215;  Earrings: Jessica Simpson, $18.

If you didn’t notice, this lovely ensemble was inspired by my friend Hilary’s outfit from Saturday night (see yesterday’s Motivational Monday for a picture!).  I absolutely loved her super cute outfit, and I am dying for a chic little pair of these amazing leather shorts (we know what’s on my wish list now…)! But, what do you think of this amazing outfit?! You could really wear it for so many occasions… Whether you’re having lunch with an old friend, going on a date with someone special, or hitting the town with the girls on Friday night, this outfit is perfect for them all!

I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday today, and get ready for tomorrow’s Workout Wednesday… I hope you’re as excited as I am!

Fix Me Up Friday: An Easy Fix For The Worst Sunburns

Hello and happy Friday gorgeous! I hope you have all had a wonderful week and you’re ready for the weekend (I know I sure am…)! Well, this week I have a cure for the worst sunburns you could possibly imagine.  I actually did this earlier in the summer and have been meaning to tell y’all about it for some time now, but I guess it must have slipped my mind when I was MIA for a little… (sorry about that guys!). But anyway, here it is:

  • Rub the burnt area with a wet washcloth so the skin is damp (not dripping, but visibly wet).
  • Generously pour apple cider vinegar on the affected area, and let it set in as much as possible.
  • After the vinegar has set in and dried a little, apply a good amount of coconut oil to the area and let it set in.

Memorial day weekend of this summer I got extremely sunburnt on my back. As we all know, I am working at a pool for the summer, and although I was wearing sunscreen, I guess my pasty skin still got scorched.  When I got home on Saturday, my mom (being the amazing mother that she is) decided to take matters into her own hands and Google “home remedies” for curing sunburn.  Well, after searching for a little while this is what she finally came up with, and let me tell ya… It worked like a charm! She did this regimen to my back and I went to bed and when I woke up the next morning, not only was the red a lot better (I didn’t say she was a miracle worker… It was still a little pink, but nothing like the tomato it was the day before!) but the pain was also completely gone.  I was shocked and so were my mom and all of the lifeguards I work with at the pool.  So, if you or anyone you know has or is prone to sunburn, get your skinny butt to the store and pick up some vinegar and coconut oil because let me tell you this stuff really works!

Have you tried anything else that works like a charm? Please let us know! I hope you all have a fantastic Friday and an even better weekend! Until next time, ladies…

Fix Me Up Friday: Four Game-Changing Ways To Incorporate Lemons Into Your Skincare Regimen

Fix Me Up Friday - Skincare Uses For Lemons

Recently, while browsing through Pinterest mindlessly as I do all to often, I came across a ton of different uses for lemon… For the face! I never realized how many ways lemons and lemon juice could be used, and I definitely didn’t realize how many different amazing things you could use them for in your daily skincare regimen! But, much to my surprise they happen to be one of the most amazing fruits for your skin, and the best part is, they’re probably a lot less expensive than the products you’re currently using! So, here is some of what I found during my Pinterest binge…

Fix ME Up Friday - Skincare Uses For Lemons

Blackhead Treatment

Who knew?! If you take a half of a lemon and put three or four drops of honey on top, then all you have to do is rub the lemon/honey mixture on your face (emphasizing your biggest problem areas), let it sit for five minutes, and rinse with cold water.  It is said to work immediately… This is something I am definitely going to have to try for myself. Blackheads are something that I always seem to be battling, and being one of my biggest pet peeves and annoyances as far as skincare, if this works like Pinterest claims it does, it will be a serious game changer!

Fix Me Up Friday - Skincare Uses For Lemons

Facial Hair Removal

Combine one tablespoon of honey, one-half of a tablespoon of ground oatmeal, and a few drops of lemon juice and what do you get?! A natural face mask that works to get rid of facial hair! All you have to do is follow these simple steps, and it is said to work like a charm!

  • Combine ingredients (listed above)
  • Apply the mixture to your entire face just like you would use a face mask.
  • Let the mask sit for about 15 minutes, and then rinse your face with water.

It sounds super easy and all you have to do is repeat this remedy two to three times a week for three to four weeks, and allegedly it will help eliminate facial hair! How amazing would that be?! I am not sure if your facial hair will come back or not after the treatment is complete, however this is definitely something I would be willing to try (especially if it is gone for  good!).

Brightening Toner

By combining lemon juice, water, and witch hazel (which you can buy at pretty much any local drugstore) in a plastic bottle, you come out with an amazing toner that will brighten your skin and even reduce the size of your pores! Does that sound amazing or what?! Do you struggle with oily skin and fear that this may not get the job done for your tricky skin? No need to worry, just add two tablespoons of alcohol and you should be good to go!

Like I said before, I found this remedy on Pinterest (full recipe can be found here!), but it was originally posted on Shwin & Shwin (this was the first time I ever read their blog, but let me tell you… It is amazing! They have so many different natural, DIY skincare remedies and so much more… you should definitely check them out if you have not yet done so, I highly recommend it!). If you are interested in learning more about this DIY product or want the full recipe to make your own, you can get all the deets on their blog here. This is definitely something I am going to be making this weekend… They raved about how well it worked and I figure it’s worth a try.

Anti-Aging

By mixing Lemon Juice, Green Tea, and Turmeric Powder together your end result will be an amazing face-mask that is the answer to all of your anti-aging troubles (get the full recipe here!). The lemon works to boost collagen production and boosts the elasticity of the skin and cleanse deep into pores (among so many other amazing things!), the antioxidants in the green tea fills your skin with so many vitamins and minerals which help fight fine lines and wrinkles, treat acne, is a UV protectant, and is even said to help fight skin cancer! And last but not least, the turmeric powder helps fight irritation and inflammation, it also has medicinal properties that help fight acne and eczema, and finally it helps fight and reverse skin spots, acne scars, and freckles. Does that sound amazing or what!? Well, the website that I found this recipe on is equally amazing… They have all the uses and properties of all three items listed in depth (check it out!) as well as the full recipe for the mask and so much more throughout their site… I highly recommend checking it out for yourself, you won’t be sorry you did!

There you have it ladies and gents… Lemon is an amazing fruit and provides so many great benefits for the skin! Who knew? Well, maybe a lot of you did, but due to a little ignorance on my part, this was all new to me and I was taken by surprise! But let me tell you, it was quite an amazing surprise to learn how much something as simple as lemon can do for my face. I am definitely going to be trying all of these ASAP, so I will let you know how my experiments go!

I hope you all have a fantastic Friday and if you don’t have big plans tonight (or at any point this weekend or in the near future), try out one of these recipes and let me know how it goes! I would love to hear from you beauties. Or, if you have already tried one of these (and loved or hated it), let me know that also. I love hearing from y’all so please, don’t be shy!

It’s been rough ladies and gents, that I can promise… I’ve missed y’all so much, but I am going to do my best to stay on top of everything for the rest of summer, even if I am running in a bunch of different directions!

With the weekend coming up, I have plans to go shopping with my best friend Hilary on Saturday, and I fully intend on looking for an outfit that resembles this exactly! My personal favorite part of the outfit, the shoes, will be my go-to item. I just really love the faux-wood wedge and the brown leather color! The best part about the whole thing? It won’t break the bank! At prices such as these you really can afford to get the whole thing!
