Gym Shark First Impressions | Spring Haul

For a while now I have been keeping an eye out on a couple of brands that I have yet to experience myself. After watching a couple of review videos online for the brand Gym Shark, it seemed to be a bad idea to try as most of them harped on the fact that most of their items were not squat proof and were prone to camel toe. Two qualities no one wants from their apparel, especially their active wear. Now that the company has been around for a couple years I was hoping that things would improve which is why I decided to give them a shot.

Included at the bottom is of course an in depth review of each item in “real time”, kind of.

The reason this was not a try on haul was mainly due to the fact that pieces did not fit or were too see through to show.

Swimsuits per Body Type

Many Youtubers have been wearing Albion Fit swimwear for the last couple of years raging about their high quality, modesty and overall chic style. Before jumping into this post, no, this post is not sponsored by Albion Fit. The key to feeling and looking confident in a swimsuit is knowing what body type you have and wearing a suit that excentuates it.

Avengers Endgame Premiere Lookbook

What a bitter sweet weekend coming up, augh!! The very last Avengers movie, I can not honestly believe the series will be over. To celebrate the finale I decided to make it extra special with a full on outfit and makeup inspired look. Lucky my sister is a bigger nerd than I am with Avenger movies so these were already in her shopping cart before coming up with this idea.  As I am not as diehard of a fan as my sister, I will most likely be wearing one of the shirts or sweatshirts for the premiere.

Work Style File | Lookbook

Since it has been awhile since my last style file or what I wore this week this seemed to be the perfect time. The weather around this neck of the woods in California has been a bit chilly with foggy rainy mornings and sunny afternoons. For a reference, it has been around 57-65 degrees Fahrenheit here. Considering the fact that it is required to wear closed toed shoes in the office I rarely wear heels unless they are boots. That being said I still uphold a semi relaxed formal attire. All of these looks include soft, warm yet breathable material to provide all day comfort.

Accessories Trends | Spring / Summer 2019

Previously we discussed in an earlier post that trends are not the be all end all in fashion. If you happen to love a trend try it. On the flip side if you hate it you do not have to wear it just to be fashionable. Fitting in goes against fashion as it should be a unique personal thing that varies from person to person. Your style gives people a personal glimpse of your personality, likes and dislikes without even uttering a word to them.  Trends are simply to inspire creativity in fashion and usually they are on a wide scope so it is unlikely someone would adapt all of the season’s trends.

3 Ways to Style | Olivia Culpo Collection

Recently Express teamed up with Olivia Culpo to create this amazing collection centered around girl power. Truth moment, I had never heard of Olivia prior to seeing her pictures from this campaign. I gravitated toward this set with the intentions to use it in  both my personal and professional wardrobe. Your girl likes a good sale but I have realized with fashion I gravitate towards quality pieces that cost more but that I will also use more.

Valentine Look Book | 2019

Pink and red everything hearts and candy galore. Who else is excited for all of the Hallmark holiday lovey dove movie specials? Valentine’s Day is such a versatile holiday depending on your mindset. At the store there are things for romantic relationships alongside Galentine’s day merchandise. Since I was little my sister, mom and I have exchanged valentines. This holiday should be more about love in all relationships. These looks pair well with various activities from the classic dinner date to a comfy movie date with the girls.

Rainy Day Movie Line Up & Lookbook

The last couple of weeks it has been stormy out which means it is the perfect weather to curl up next to the fire, pop some popcorn, and watch the best movies. Instead of just listing my favorite movies, I thought it would be more fun to do a his and her movie list with a little cheeky look book.
