Pink Suede Pumps: Just Do it!

27 Jan

Let’s be honest, some of us are “pink girls” and some of us aren’t. Whether or not pink is your thing, you need pink suede pumps!  Let me tell you why. First of all, you can wear  pink suede pumps with pretty much anything and they look especially amazing with pants. If you think pink is too girly, you can pair pink pumps with ripped jeans or an all black ensemble to off set the girly vibe and go for more of an edgy look. If you can’t find a shoe to match your outfit, throw on pink….believe it or not, it matches everything. I’m starting to think that pink is a neutral, LOL! Lastly, pink can be LOUD, but the classic silhouette of a pointed toe and the rich suede texture bring the perfect balance to the heel. The bottom line is pink heels look great on everyone, and you need some!

Check out these images below of some looks with pink heels and you’ll get to see for yourself that pink heels are a must. I also will link pink heels for every budget for you to shop as well.(scroll down to shop)

Smells like Christmas!

21 Dec

Happy Wednesday everyone 🙂 I hope you’re all having an amazing day filled with joy and laughter. I also hope your day is filled with beautiful scents -seriously. If you follow me on snapchat (jfilkosky1) you know that I’m obsessed with my wax warmer from Target. I always wish you guys could smell what I’m smelling. This wax warmer is EVERYTHING!!! It’s priced under $20 and is a super cute brass design. I love that it’s a plug-in that has a switch as well. So if it’s plugged in a hard to reach outlet, you can just switch it on and off easily instead of bending all the way down to unplug it. The thing I like most about this wax melter, though, is the fact that it has a huge light bulb to melt the wax. I feel like the scents are really amplified with the heat! The light bulb keeps the wax so hot that the scent is strong and I can’t get enough. A lot of warmers have a small votive candle that is somehow supposed to melt wax and scent your home. unfortunately I’ve never had luck with those.  I use my wax warmer year round, but especially during the cold months which is why I’m sharing it with you now. Also it would make a great gift for a loved one or even for a co-worker gift exchange.

Pictured below are the Glade wax melts as well as Home scents brand which is the cheaper store brand and they both smell amazing.

My Favorite Face Masks!

17 Nov

I’m pretty big on skin care as most of you already know and my daily and weekly regimens are pretty intense. I take my skin seriously because I only get one face and quite frankly I don’t want a wrinkly one. Aging gracefully is beautiful but premature aging is not! (in my opinion) An important part of my regimen is face masks. I do a mask once or twice a week depending on the condition of my skin. My favorite face masks are by origins are pretty amazing! Shop my favorites below:)

One is a charcoal mask that clears pores. $26mask The other one clears pores as well but is a little more focused on clearing up acne and oil. I actually use this one as a spot treatment on my acne while I sleep. Out of trouble mask $26

Blanket Scarf!(Under $25)

11 Nov

If you buy only one scarf this Fall/Winter…..let it be an oversized plaid blanket scarf. The print is bold enough to add a nice pop of color to any outfit without being overbearing. Blanket scarves can be worn in various ways with t-shirts, tucked into coats or over even a dress. They’re cozy and so quintessentially Fall.

Modcloth has the perfect plaid scarf and it comes in different colors. Priced at $24.99, it’s a great way to update your cold weather wardrobe without breaking the bank!

Have a great weekend,

XO- Journey

Your Razor’s New Best Friend!

25 Oct

I have been using, and loving Yorz razor wraps for the last two weeks. In my home, my wife and I use 4 razors at a time(2 each). To avoid mix-ups, we literally have to write our initials on the handle of the razors with a black sharpie marker. I am happy to say that writing our initials on the handle is now a thing of the past. With Yorz razor wraps, we choose our own colors and there is no more confusion.  The soft  silicone wraps come in 7 colors and are super comfortable to hold, which leads me to my next thought. No more nicks!!! I’ve cut myself so many times when the razor has slipped out of my soapy hand in the past. These wraps are so handy, they even have a soft hooked end that can hang on most shower caddies, letting excess water drip off keeping your razor dry and extending the life of the blades. Nobody likes a wet, rusty razor. These are so perfect for households that have people sharing showers- College dorms, roommate situations, families etc. With these wraps, you will never wonder which razor is YORZ again.

Yorz Razor wraps fit any disposable razor with a straight handle and retail for $4.99 each or $11.99 for a 3 pack.
