Wearing Jewelry to the workplace

Deciding what jewelry to wear to the workplace is a little stressful; however, I am big believer of thinking outside the box. Listen, whether you are all about the basics or #teamprints, I think adding a necklace, bracelet, or statement earrings to your look is perfect! Remember, the key is not to go overboard but just give it the right touch to take it from simple to glam! 


I'm a huge fan of necklaces for the office. Especially, if I'm wearing a skirt or dress. When wearing a necklace, I may add small stud earrings or none at all - remember, less is more. *Tip: If wearing prints, go with a gold (or silver - whichever you prefer) statement necklace or if you decide to go for example, with a black or gray basic colored outfit, then I would go with a "in-your-face" statement necklace, ha! Again, that's just me. Here are some affordable statement necklaces that will dress up any look! 


If I'm wearing a short sleeve shirt or dress, I'll go for the dainty bracelet and the oversized stud earrings. Sometimes, I may just stick with the bracelet - I think it all depends in what mood I'm in, too. No biggie, just go with what you feel that day. 


I have to say I wear these more than any other jewelry. I am a HUGE fan of Charming Charlie when it comes to jewelry for the workplace. They have so many options to choose from and are affordable, which is a win-win in my book! Another place I love to buy earrings from are Baublebar, as you can see here and here - obsessed! Here are some of my favorite picks below.

Fear of growing

What can I say, this post has lingered in my "drafts" for a while. Not going to lie, to click "publish" was quite frightening but at the same time, liberating. By no means, do I consider myself a "Guru" in the blogger world but I have to admit, the fear of growing freaks me the hell out. How does one pitch a sponsorship post when you don't have thousands of followers? J..."Let go, Let God." That's the words I've had on repeat since the beginning of the new year. NO more doubts, NO more hesitation. Just go for it! This year, I want to bring more content to my blog and share my experiences with y'all. I started using the poll option in Instagram to get a better feel of what you want to see and so far, it's been very helpful! Any-who, If you want to know a bit more about me, you may want to follow a long Instastories. ;) Happy Monday, friends!

How to wear a blanket scarf

A blanket scarf. Every girl should have at least one in their closet. Scarfs are comfy and the warmest accessory for winter. Unfortunately, mine has been hanging in my closet for too long because you know, San Diego weather! Although lately, I think could get away with wearing it since the temperature has been in the low 60's - in the afternoon that is, ha! There are so many ways to style a blanket scarf; however, I kept it simple. I let it hang loose on the front without doing too much. Another quick way to style your scarf is to drape it across your neck with one long end hanging out, as seen in the picture below. What's your favorite way to style a blanket scarf?

My Personal Goals for 2018

My first post of the year, yay! I'm trying to start the new year right but the struggle is real, friends. My family and I are fighting a nasty cold and it's just lingering too long but hey, the show must go on. I told myself this year I'm not going with new year resolutions but rather focus on personal goals I would like to achieve. So without further ado, here are my three goals for the year.

I will be 36 yrs old this year so staying healthy and working out is on my top list. I have a 21 month old who emulates everything I do so it's really important I set the standard from the get-go. I've been a loyal customer of healthy prep meals from Healthy-Momma so at least I can check that off the list; however, it's the working out that needs more attention. Momma's got to keep up with the little one, ya know what I mean? I've heard so many bloggers talk about the BBG fitness program (the app is, "Sweat") so I am definitely going to check it out since I don't have time to hit the gym.

Working a full-time job, having a pre-toddler, and wife duties is a lot but this year I want to expand my options and do more blogging, no excuses! I love sharing my tips with y'all whether it's fashion, home décor, or mommy life...you name it, I am sharing! I definitely want to think outside the box and try new things that are out of my comfort zone. Fear is not an option.

I long for those days where I could finish a book in one or two days but let's be real...I just don't have the time. However, I am making it a priority to read more this year. I need, "ME" time. I miss reading books and just relaxing whether it be one or two hours a day. It's important to take care yourself even though life is a little cray-cray.

All-in-all, I'm starting the year with a positive attitude and thinking of what's really important in life - health, family, and being sane. What are some of your goals this year? Please share below!
