My Favorite Everyday Nail Color!

12 Jul

I’ve found the perfect year round everyday nail color. It’s a pinkish clear hue by Essie called Sugar Daddy. I LOVE this color. It’s almost clear but very light pink at the same time. It basically goes with everything and makes your nails look super healthy. I’m on my 2nd bottle and I never go through nail polish that fast. I was explaining it to a friend as the perfect color for everyone, from the color enthusiasts to the non polish wearing. It compliments all skin tones as well. I recommend you pick a bottle up to add to your collection!

Bar Cart Style! (Updated)

14 Mar

Hallelujah, I have finally finished styling my bar cart! I didn’t know exactly how I wanted to style it when I first started, all I knew was that I wanted a gold cart with 3 shelves. I started brainstorming and decided on a mostly pink and gold palette. As far as what to put on the shelves, I had to have a cute ice bucket and a pitcher with roses, everything else came to me as I went along. Bar carts are popping up everywhere and for good reason!  They are a fun way to showcase your personality and style, while being totally functional at the same time. When I have people over, my cart will be put to very good use. I love fresh flowers, pink and gold- my bar cart is all of that and more. To say I’m obsessed would be an understatement!

  Now, let’s get to the important stuff…..where did I find everything and how much did I spend?

Let me start by saying if you google ‘bar cart’ right now, you will quickly notice that they can be upwards of $500+!! For the cart alone! BEFORE you style it with all your fun trinkets, alcohol, mixers etc. Let me also tell you that if you really look, you CAN FIND AN AFFORDABLE CART! Check out these Prices below…..I spent under $300 for everything pictured including liquor and mixers.

*Bar Cart $150( I got it on sale for $119), Ice Bucket with tongs $30, silver cocktail spoon $3, Silver muddler $5, glass fruit bowl $2. All from Cost Plus world Market.

*Pitcher/Vase $8 at Home Goods.

*Crystal Decanters $40(I got them on sale for $20)each at Macy’s

*Corkscrew and shaker I already had, but you can find them at Bed Bath & Beyond.

*Mason jar $1, pink straws $5, Glass sugar bowl with lid $4, Key shaped bottle opener $4 all  from Target.

*Hand stamped decanter tags $10 each at Etsy shop Seize the night designs.

*Booze and mixers all from Total Wine

*Roses $7 at Trader Joes

 

Styling tips: Stick to 2-3 main colors. Fresh flowers are always a good idea and I really love the look of fruit as well. Fill the shelves, but don’t overpack them. Make it your own, add personal touches.

UPDATE: Pink sugar cubes have arrived and are in the tiny glass bowl with lid, I also purchased teeny tiny tongs from Crate &Barrel.

My Bar cart is complete!!!!

Custom sugar cubes available at Etsy shop Heather Holidays.

Cute Summer Sandals Under $25!

9 Jun

Hey guys, I scored on these cute sandals at Old Navy this past weekend and had to share!  First of all, they are beyond cute, second of all they are COMFORTABLE, lastly they are $24.95! Perfect in every way!  After some researching, I noticed they sell the brown and fuchsia online BUT they also had pale pink and black in stores. I saw pale pink and black at 2 separate locations, so if you want either of those colors, you’re going to have to hop in the car! So worth it though! Here is a link to the brown and fuchsia(which they are calling plum). Hope you find the color for you:) If you check out my Instagram @yourstylejourney, you will see me rockin’ the pale pink color today!

What’s In My Beach Bag!

5 Jun

Summer is here and beach days are inevitable. I pretty much take the same few things to the beach every time I go. They include sunglasses, rubber flip-flops, a hat, a book/magazine, lip balm, SPF and a kick ass bathing suit! While we’re on the subject of kick ass bathing suits, I have recently learned about the cutest bathing suits from an awesome lingerie company by the name of Naja. Besides having super cute styles that are flattering, the bathing suits and bras are made from recycled water bottles!!!!!! The innovative swimwear is also made with water free printing which is pretty neat. No water= no water waste.  Definitely check out their website, views on social impact, and women empowering women. Below are my personal essentials when it comes to beach days! Have a great weekend! XO, Journey beach bag Clockwise from top left: Eos lip balm in mint. Naja Bathing Suit. Forever 21 Fedora. Ralph Lauren Tote. Old Navy Flip Flops. Neutrogena SPF 110. I’ve been using this SPF for years and it is the BEST! It doesn’t break me out and it’s SPF 110!!! I wear it all summer long. Girlboss Book. Gucci Aviator Sunglasses.
