Positive Valentine's Day Ideas!


Valentine's Day is this Sunday and some of you are dreading it while some of you are excited! I already have my whole day planned out with my lovely boyfriend Matthew. Would not want to spoil it of course, so i will keep you updated afterwards! In this post, I am going to show you activities you can do and clothes that will give that perfect look for this holiday!

What to wear?!

Ahh! Your partner is coming over and you dont know what to wear last minute? It always helps to plan a day before on what you want to wear. I chose this outfit in the photo below.

  • Red Dress from Forever 21. It has the perfect color for the holiday and is really snug so it shows off your curves for your loved one.
  • Gold Necklace. This necklace is also from Forever 21. It gives the perfect statement look and makes your outfit come together as a whole.
  • Gray Cardigan. Now there are many options you can do to keep your arms warm, i chose my gray cardigan to give my look a snuggled feel.
  • Black Heeled Ankle Boots. Make your outfit look somewhat dressy but also comfortable with a pair of ankle boots that have a thick heel so it is not killing your feet by the end of the date!

Planning on staying inside? Here is a nice cozy outfit that you can try!

  • Kissy Sweater. This sweater is super warm and cuddly if youre alone or with your loved one. 
  • Gray Sweats. These are one of my favorite pairs of sweatpants from Target, they are so warm and soft.
  • Another item i got from Target were these cute polka dotted socks. They are super fuzzy and keep my cold feet warm!

Things to do!

Being alone on Valentine's Day can be quite annoying, trust me i have been there. Here are a few activities that can keep you occupied!

  • Cuddle with your furry friend! I have a cat (show in photo below) and her name is Zelda. She isn't the cuddly friend but she still likes to play and have some fun!
  • Listen to music! When i say listen to music, listen to happy songs! Not sad ones! Let me know if you are interested in a playlist for Valentine's Day and I can attach one to this post or maybe the next post!
  • Play video games
  • Take up your favorite hobby. Draw, take photos, design, etc
  • Eat tons of chocolate and ice cream
  • Watch movies
  • Play Jelly Crush
  • Go for a walk/run

I hope all of you have a wonderful Valentine's Day! Let me know what you plan on doing!!

Back to College Outfits

It is back to college for myself! I decided to create some outfits for this semester and share them with you! 

My first outfit is really relaxed and girly. I have been obsessed with this top all summer and i know it is just going to carry on over to fall...even though it is very springy! I put my hair up to give the outfit more of a relaxed look, and well it looks so much more classier when my hair is up. 

The cardigan I am wearing is very cozy and great for the cold classrooms, gah don't you just hate those rooms?! The color fits very well with the top, jeans and also the boots. There is not much contrast in this look, but i think it is a nice relaxed outfit. I bought this cardigan at Forever 21 for just $16! It was a great deal because this throw-over is pretty thick and warm! My top is also from forever 21, i just love that store!

I love wearing rings these days so i wanted to give my look the silver twist along with my bright blue nails. The rings are from a store I honestly do not remember but i love them so much! Maybe Claires? Not quite sure.

Last but not least, the boots. I typically purchase my boots from JCP but I actually bought these from...wait for it...FOREVER 21. Who would have guessed! These boots tie in with the relaxed and lazy look. They are super easy to walk in and they do not kill my little feet. Also, the color of these boots was something i could NOT pass up on. I just love brown boots, so classy and vintage!

This outfit is my little twist of an Indiana Girl look. I may not be country but i do love red and black plaid! For class, I try to stick to the relaxed looks because we all know dressing up for school is just pointless and we all do not want to feel dead when just the first class is done with. 

My top is from Forever 21 as well. It is super soft and the colors look great for the fall, which is when class starts! The button down effect makes the outfit that much more laid back and comfortable.

I was inspired to use this bow I got last winter and I feel great for doing this myself. I am usually awful at doing my hair so i just let it down and let it go wild. I pulled the left and right sides of my bangs behind my head and popped this cute little black bow on. It can make you look so much more dressed up when really, you are just getting that hair out of your face and feeling pretty while doing it!

These boots are somewhat a killer compared to my previous brown ones. They are definitely cute but they can make myself take a beating. These boots will be great for a day that you have just one class. I purchased these boots from JC Pennys. My first heeled booties!

Lastly, my bracelet. I decided to wear no rings and just a bracelet with this look. Gold and red look great together as well. MY spikey bracelet is from H&M, an AMAZING store by the way. I think it sticks to the chilled look and gives a little oomf to it all.

This outfit is more of a dressed up classy look. My inspiration most of the time is Taylor Swift, she is always looking good. 

As shown in the photo, my lovely hat. I picked up this hat from H&M, was not too sure if I should buy it, but i did! This hat gives my look a very classy modern look. If you are not sure what to do with your hair, put a cute little hat on!

My striped dress is from Target, another store i am literally obsessed with. It was kind of on the pricey side but I have been dying to get my hands on a striped dress. If you hadn't noticed, I am in love with stripes. They just make photos POP! My green army jacket is from the classic goodwill. It was a great find if you ask me. This jacket makes the outfit somewhat put together and comfortable.

I picked up this necklace from H&M. Adding spiked along with stripes is a must do! I believe this necklace pulls in the outfit as well.

The same boots from my first look, comfortable, laid back and classy!

That is all for my back to school looks, i hope you enjoyed em! :)

Outfit Of The Day - Filming Day!

Today, I decided to take a drive down to my college and snap some photos of my outfit. While I was there, I also filmed a new video for my styling channel. I had a lot of fun so be sure to check that out Thursday hopefully! 

So this look I have put together is simple and somewhat laid back. I wanted to go for a comfortable and simple look today and I pulled it off pretty well!

The first time in a long time, I have done my hair! I was inspired by one of my good friends on youtube, Megan! ( Her hair is beautiful and when she braids it, her hair looks stunning. Sooo, I decided to take inspiration from that and go from it, a laid back side braid!

My necklace in the second photo means so much to me. I bought it while I was on vacation in South Carolina on Hilton Head Island. As you can see, it is a little Michigan shaped necklace. As you may not have known, I was born in Michigan and not Indiana. That state is my home, my everything. The smell, the sounds, looks, the taste of the air. It makes me happy whenever I visit back home. Anyways, it's a really nice dainty necklace and I will forever treasure it with my outfits.

My rings are from a few local stores here in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Something about nail polish and rings not only make the outfit but also photos look really nice together. Little do some people know, accessories can really help your outfit look 100x more better.

My shirt is of course from Forever 21. I am basically a walking model for them, lol! I have currently been obsessed with stripes. I feel like they look really nice and fun. 

My boots are also from Forever 21. These are my second heeled boots and I am liking them a lot. They are easy to walk in and shockingly very comfortable. The brown color of these boots look great with the striped top and light blue denim bottoms.

I hope you liked my outfit of the day for this week! Have a great rest of your day!

What's In My Beach Bag - Beach Essentials

Summer is still here and you still have time to go to the wonderful beach! 
Here are some of my essentials for the beach and poolside.

First off, my beach bag to carry all of the essentials. I bought it from H&M along with the towel in all of the photos. My bag has a few handy pockets and a zipper so the sand doesn't get in it. 

These black rounded sunglasses are from H&M. It's an obvious to bring a pair of shades with you.
Keep your eyes protected and stay stylish! haha!

My waterproof camera has been the coolest part of my summer. I am a vlogger and photographer and love being in the water. What a perfect combo! I bring it along to capture underwater videos and photos. Not to mention, rather be safe than sorry if water splashes on my camera while I'm out!

One of the most imporant items to bring, your phone. Take plenty of fun selfies!
If you want to see how I made this case myself, let me know down below in the comments.

Goggles may look silly on you but they are tons of fun. Seeing underwater without burning your eyes in the salty or chlorine water, no fun. I bring these just in case.

THE most important item in your beach bag, SUNSCREEN! Do not go in the sun unprotected.
You are at risk for skin cancer and unbearable burns. If it is cloudy out, you still need sunscreen on. When it is cloudy, the sun rays get trapped between the ground and clouds which make it more easier to get burned. Stay safe!

If you want, bring some music and fun along with you if you are just wanting to bake. Playing Soda Crush or listening to music can help time fly and also help give you some enjoyment.

Make sure you stay safe and protected when going outside. Don't forget water either, very important!

Until next time!
