With the holidays comes parties and gatherings that require a new outfit and this jumpsuit is the perfect item in my opinion. I personally like jumpsuits because they are an item that can be worn dressed up or down. This one in particular was really fun with the ruffle top and I liked that it could be worn on the shoulders or off. It also came in the perfect shade…Black which is most always my go to to color. The wide leg of the pants were super flattering and to me it made this jumpsuit a little fancier. If you have events coming up and are in need of something other than a little black dress, give the black jumpsuit a try.
Happy Friday and first day of December! Today I’m back with another edition of my Friday Five. These are a few things that have had my attention this week.
Each year Bath & Body Works has their annual candle sale and this is the time I stock up on their 3 wick candles and hoard them for the year. This has become an annual tradition amongst my family, heading to the mall super early to wait in line for candles and this year will be no different. The sale starts online at midnight and in stores tomorrow…Merry Christmas & you’re welcome!
Flocked Christmas trees. I purchased mine from Michaels and I swear it was the best purchase I could have made!! I’m planning on doing a holiday house tour soon so you can see just how good it looks when it’s decorated. If you aren’t in the market for a new Christmas tree, but you want that snow covered tree look you can try DIY flocking using this product. This was initially what I’d planned to do because I had a perfectly good tree, but fortunately I was able to sell my old tree and use that money towards a new one. If you’re feeling spontaneous and do decide to flock your tree I’d love to see it.
I own more pairs of Nikes than I probably should and more often than not I have a pair on. So when I came across this pair of flyknits I had to have them. Of all the styles of sneakers Nike makes flyknits are my absolute favorite. They are super comfortable and because of the stretch in the material they really conform to your foot. If you’ve never bought a pair of flyknits you should.
Lash primer was never been on my radar, but I’ve been using this tube lately and it really makes a difference. My lashes are not only longer but also look a lot thicker. From here on out I will forever use lash primer since I still have yet to master the art of applying false lashes.
This eye mask has improved my sleep tremendously! I bought it a while back to use when I traveled, but I’ve started to use it on a nightly basis and I have started to sleep a lot better. It’s also made of silk which is an added bonus because unlike cotton it doesn’t draw moisture away from the delicate area around your eyes.
Have a great weekend!

Happy Wednesday everyone! Things have been noticeably quiet here on the blog, due to being sick for what felt like an eternity, but I’m better now and ready to get back on track. Before this crazy Texas weather got the best of my immune system I was able to co-host a fragrance pop-up shop at Macys’s Northpark here in Dallas for Michele Germain. Prior to the event, I’d seen this fragrance while perusing the Macy’s website, but I’d never tried it. I’m very picky when it comes to the scents I wear and I was content with the my current line-up of perfumes. I had the chance to test out each fragrance and I have to say I really liked the way the Noir and Paris smelled. Noir was bold and would make the perfect fall/winter fragrance, while Paris was light and feminine making it a really good option for an everyday perfume.
During the event I had the opportunity to meet one of the executives for Michel Germain and she did a Q&A session giving myself, along with the other bloggers, influencers, and Macy’s shoppers the history of how the fragrances came to fruition. The company was started after the creator, Michel Germain realized his wife never wore perfume because she couldn’t find a scent she liked. He made it his mission to create something she would love and that made her feel sexy and attractive…talk about husband goals!! I think he definitely accomplished his goal as the company has seen lots of success over the past 25 years even winning the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award at the Canadian Fragrance Awards in 2016.
There are currently 4 women’s fragrances which are sold at Macy’s and can be found here and 4 men’s cologne’s which are sold at Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s. If you’re in the market for a new a scent, definitely head to your local Macy’s and test them out, I’m sure you’ll find something that suits your taste.
