A Life + Style Blog for the modern millennial who wants it all.
July 1, 2016 |
Whohooo today is Friday and it also means a long weekend ahead with July 4th! I get so giddy about Holidays and love having the hubs home for an extra day. We decided not to go to the beach this year (because we are awful planners) and, while I’m a little bummed, I’m looking forward to some family time and lots of pool time! What are your plans? Any good recipes I should try? When I relax, I always want to cook big, yummy meals for my family…
SUCH an exciting week on Style Your Senses…here’s the recap!
Tips on Packing for a Long Trip!
This was probably one of the most viewed posts in quite some time now and I’m SO glad that you guys liked it. It a bit out of my comfort zone (giving people advice when you’re not necessarily and “expert” in that field isn’t always easy), but you guys were very receptive to it and pinned it to refer back to. That makes me SO happy. Like I mentioned on Instagram, aside from my monogrammed duffle, you guys were most interested in what’s in my beauty bag and what bras I packed…lol. I’m going to do full posts on both topics later, but the links to all of my favorites are already in the travel post HERE.
SO many of you emailed me specifically about this roller pictured in the beauty bag shot. I’ve been planning to share a more in depth post about it, but have been taking my sweet time to make sure that I love it before recommending it. So it’s a micro-needler…a roller full of really tiny and fairly sharp needles. You roll it over the skin (I use it on my forehead for fine lines and cheeks for acne scars) and it essentially injures your skin forcing it to regenerate and repair itself. This sounds brutal but I promise it’s not. I look at it as aerating your skin like you would your lawn before planting grass. After using the roller, then I apply my anti-aging cream and moisturizer. I truly 100% notice a difference from using it and would absolutely recommend every woman use it at least 1-2x a week. I use mine 3-4x a week now. I bought THIS ONE, but there are all different levels of them. This one is on the cheaper side, but it definitely does the job.
There was also a big Instagram Roundup from the second half of June and THIS DRESS was definitely the most popular item. It’s an easy fit, great to wear day or night and really fun to accessorize…oh and under $50!
Lastly, this little July 4th #ootd snuck in on Thursday and you guys like these cactus shorts as much as I do…whimsy and fun and full of color! Also, the off the shoulder top is one that I’ve been wearing for 2 seasons now and they just brought it back in stock!
Well, I’d have to say that the MAJOR highlight this week was being given the opportunity to take over the @liketoknow.it handle (don’t worry they just have nearly 2 MILLION followers) with some fellow Charlotte blogger babes. It was so much fun showing everyone around the QC! In case you missed it, here were my posts:
I really couldn’t tell you which piece out of this outfit I like best! This red cold shoulder top is amazing and flattering and $58 and the stripe maxi is just wow with color. Both are statement pieces that can be worn so many different ways!
The stripe top went on sale the day I posted this and is marked down to $21!!! Still some sizes…shop HERE!
This white lace off the shoulder dress was by far the most popular item! It’s such a cute fit and is only $64…the perfect dress to finish out summer in style in! Hurry, there are still sizes left…I’m wearing a M.
From my Instagram, this was the most liked image this week. Tall girls, I found a romper that doesn’t fit like a bikini!!! It’s an amazing color, had cute gold details and even allows you to do crazy things like SIT DOWN without showing your behind to everyone. It’s a great buy if you’re over 5’8! Shop it HERE.
Omg Omg Omg one of my favorite reveals in quite some time…my friend Cassie and her daughter Emmy revealed their dollhouse and it’s all kind of miniature amazingness. Seriously, you need to see these details! (Please pin from Cassie’s site)
I whipped up these super easy blueberry muffins one morning this week and they were delicious! I used almond milk and it worked well, so they can easily be dairy free.
Obsessing over this piece by Juniper Briggs…all of her work is amazing!
Well, this dress is freaking adorable….
Okay, I have enough self awareness
to know that I do NOT need another pair neutral sandals, but OMG these are what my dreams are made of. Classic sandals with a southwestern flair…sign me up! Shop them HERE (also in black).
Ya’ll this gold bamboo shelf is kinda really really cute. I love it for an entryway or bathroom. You won’t believe where it’s from! See HERE.
Ummmm is this new style in my favorite leopard print not dreamy. I have a bad feeling I won’t be able to resist this one. Let’s see how long I can hold out…lol…shop it HERE.
Sales + Steals:
Heads Up: My favorite linen tunic was marked down to $27! Definitely a great piece and a wardrobe staple! Shop it HERE.
How adorable is this little tunic dress? I love it right now with gladiator sandals and then can totally see it with suede over the knee boots in October or so. It’s regular $148 and has been marked down to $56 (!!) Shop it HERE.
How gorg is this rug??? Can you get over that it’s on sale for $141 for a 5×7?! Shop it HERE.
Jack Rogers lovers THIS GOLD PAIR is on sale for under $100 and still available in all sizes…um, these never go on sale! Shop them HERE.
I hope that you guys have a great long weekend! Keep up with us on Instagram and Snapchat @styleyoursenses!! xo
