Fall Who?

Yes, it is officially Fall and I have yet to wear my first "fall" piece! But hey! I'm not complaining because to be honest, I prefer the warm weather over cold. Although I do crave some rain and cuddly weather every once in awhile; the struggle right?! 

Anywho! Here I am wearing another Summer dress, typical Californian I am. I feel like I need to get use out of all my summer dresses now before it becomes too late! This beautiful number is from Target, one of my favorite past time stores. ;) What caught my eye was the fact that it had slits on both sides of the dress and the back detail, so very different yet cute! Since the dress takes center stage, I paired it with dainty neck jewelry and some brown strappy sandals which I also got from Target for only $7! SCORE! I just love deals. :) I added the red lipstick for the extra confidence. 

Dress & Sandals: Target || Necklaces: Forever 21

Motivation Monday!

Happy Monday! The start of another great week is upon us and I hope you all are doing well. If not, I hope that this post brings some light and positivity into your life! It makes me really happy when others leave me comments and tell me that they needed to read my motivation posts or that it made them feel better. To know that it has had some effect on some, really warms my heart. 

I've recently wrapped my head around the idea of "working hard" to achieve the goals you want in life. It seems as though sometimes we see it as "too much work" we're not "good enough" and the negative list goes on. Sometimes though, we have problems or mishaps because it is our faith that is being tested to see how bad we really want these dreams of ours. If you want it really bad, you'll get it done no matter what! If not, you'll find every excuse in the book to keep you from getting there. Don't confuse the two.

We have this misconception that sometimes people get what they want because things naturally come easy for them. FALSE! They worked hard to get there and we might not have seen their struggle up close and personal but that doesn't mean it didn't happen. If you want something really bad, fight for it! Most importantly, work hard for it and I mean REALLY hard for it! Do whatever it is that you can do to get yourself where you want to be. Don't kid yourself and say "Oh, I'll wait till next week" or "I'll wait till this happens." NO! If you keep waiting for the "right" moment, that moment in your eyes will never come! Start right now and promise yourself the best! You owe it to yourself and your life to try! 

Actions speak way louder than words do. And that goes with anything in your life. The more you talk about it, do something about it. Even if it is a little step, you're a lot more closer than what you were before you took action. Anything worth having is worth working hard for. If you're wondering or complaining that you don't have certain things in your life, it is because you haven't worked hard enough for them yet! You have no one to blame but yourself for not taking that leap of faith that you need! 

When you reach a milestone of an accomplishment, it'll be then that you will thank yourself for all the extra work you put in before. It will be then that you will GREAT and ACCOMPLISHED. You will be happy that you took that first step. Be thankful and grateful for what you have now! See the resources that are given to you now and go on with them! You'll thank yourself in the long run.

A Little Bit of Country

Happy Friday! I am so happy that it is Friday because I have been having such a great week and I always feel good when I keep up with my blog! Which by the way, I posted up my new Fall Lookbook video late Wednesday night so be sure to check that out HERE and let me know what you think! 

Now this dress is such a cute gem! It is from eShakti and I absolutely love it! It is something so different that I don't own and I just love the silhouette of the dress. The great thing about the website is that you can customize the items to fit your body the way you want to. I thought it was so cool! I have never came across anything like it. I like the fact that when I picked this dress I was able to choose whether I wanted it above knee length, added pockets (heck yes!), and for the waist to fit snug on my body. The customization option is perfect for you to be able to get your clothes exactly the way you want them! :D This is something I definitely recommend to try! Check out their websites here: http://eshakti.com/Products/FALL

To me this dress was a little on the "country" side but definitely still cute. I decided to keep it casual and paired it with my jean jacket just in case I got cold. I wore it with my strappy brown platform shoes to add a little bit of edge! I went for pink lipstick instead of red to change it up a bit. :)

BTS + Fall Lookbook VIDEO!

Happy Wednesday! Hump day yay! So I finally have a new video, :D I am a bit late for the "Back to School" looks but in my defense some people are still barely going back to school as well! :) It is still very hot where I live as well too so I can't jump right into the Fall looks just yet like I wish to. Hopefully it will begin to cool down so I can get right on it! I created 4 looks for you guys! Two of them are for the days that are still warm, the post Summer looks. And the last two looks are for the colder days that are to come. I hope you enjoy them as I did creating them! 

So let me know what you think! Is there something you would wear? Leave me a comment and feel free to share this video with others! Don't forget to subscribe to my blog to never miss a post! Or follow me on Bloglovin' and Instagram
