Fast Tip Tuesday

Carefree Color Combos

A kimono is the perfect summer piece to have in your closet. I was drawn to this one because of the colors and built this outfit around it. Bright colors are so much fun which is why I am also a huge fan of bright colored pants. One of the best things about fashion is all the fun you can have  playing with colors. 

Lets talk accessories. Nothing compliments a having-a-bad-hair-day messy side bun like a pretty headband. I have plenty of these for such occasions. These earrings are my favorites. They are Swarovski and are of course from Joyce's Jewelry. This necklace is my own creation per say. You'll get a closer look at that later.

The next time you are doing a little wardrobe shopping keep the color wheel in mind. Sometimes you just look at an outfit and think how fantastic it looks, but don't really think about why that is. The color wheel basically applies to everything in life; clothes, hair, makeup, etc. But, when I was in hair school I really started paying attention to it.

Here is a Fast 101 on the wheel:

  • Colors that compliment each other. For this you'll go from one side to the exact opposite. Think teal and tangerine.
  • Analogous colors. A mouth full right? But so easy, just pick a color say green like my pants and the color to the right or left. Like my blue cami. Colors that are similar have a very harmonious look.

A Game Changer

I am always open to new ideas and healthy tips, that is the beauty of this blog. I love getting to share different things I come across. That is exactly why I am bursting to share this with you if you aren't already on board. I've heard of Coconut Oil in the past and never really looked into it. Well I sure am sorry I didn't. I started the 21 Day Fix yesterday and a huge part of the eating plan is to drink coconut oil. At first I was like this is a little odd but I still did it. It takes a lot to shock me and let me tell you, I am absolutely floored that it makes you SO full!

So what's the deal? There are many benefits of this fabulous oil but I am going to give you the condensed version.

  • It increases your energy expenditure, helping you burn more fat
  • Helps keep infection away
  • Kills hunger
  • Have dry skin? It can even be used as a moisturizer!

Fast Tip Tuesday

Stop whatever you are doing and go get some Coconut Oil! Drink 1 Tbsp. before breakfast, lunch, and dinner (eating healthy, of course).

July Favorites

This Summer is really flying by isn't it? It doesn't help that all of us tried and true Fashionista's start shopping for our Fall wardrobes around this time. When I'm shopping for sweaters and boots I can't help but want a Pumpkin Spice Latte in my hand. But then I realize I am way ahead of myself and need to enjoy right now. The sun, pedicures, an upcoming getaway, and just being in the moment of summer (even if it is rainy).

Here are a few things that I can't wait to share with you. From my leopard obsession to letting go of my old (and beloved) running shoes, there is a lot going on here. Also, a type of shoe I've never owned. It's a pretty big deal to this shoe obsessed girl.

Fast Tip Tuesday

Today's tip isn't about beauty, fashion or food. It's about life. From a young age I've been quite obsessed with having a planner. I love them. Being organized soothes me. So buy a planner. One you love and love to look at. Kate Spade is always my go-to for a beautiful planner. In a time where everything is digital and on our smartphones (I use one of those too) I love to be able to write things down and have my pretty planner wherever the day takes me.

Have a wonderful Tuesday! xoxo
