Loving

I love doing these posts and reading posts like this from other people! I think it’s so interesting to see new finds and sometimes I find something super useful in those posts.

I’m constantly loving all the things, but here are a few that keep coming up over and over…

Quick meals-I don’t know if I’m just more hungry then usual or I’m waiting too long to start making my meals, but fast meals to get food from my fridge to my tummy have been a major go to.

I know summer is gone, but I cannot get enough of these grape/cherry tomatoes. They are so delicious! Side note: also can’t get enough grapes…

This dress I found at H&M…not my usual style, but I thought it was super cute and it was under $10! Whaaaaat??

I love a good rose scent, but this vanilla and rose lotion from Bath and Body takes it to another level! It’s seriously so lovely!

Dinner with friends is always a favorite, but I think it means a lot more now knowing that we are all going different ways come later next year 😞

I’ve been wanting some heart earrings and these gold plated ones were too cute to resist. I actually mix them up when I wear them instead of pairing them with their twin!

I think that wraps up my favorites! Talk to me in the comments and let me know what you’ve been loving recently! Till next time πŸ™‚

Some fall favorites

I have not been hating this fall thing that’s happening. It still gets nice and warm during the afternoon in LA, but mornings and evenings have been a bit chilly. Because of that I have been feeling all of the fall things!

My first favorite is something I’ve been looking for, for a LONG time. When you’re a shmall framed human it’s hard to find leather/jean jackets that properly fit and won’t break the bank. I finally found this beauty at TJ Maxx. It fits nicely, has pockets on the sides for your hands, and was $20!

During the same shopping trip I found this reddish brownish burnt orangey polish from OPI. I probably don’t need another polish, but I honestly don’t have a shade like this and it seemed like it was meant to be πŸ˜€

Brunch with bae has always been and will always be a fave..honestly any meal with him will be a fave. This particular meal was from Leo & Lily’s. It was their turkey club and their crunchy french toast.

I have been kinda loving and living in jumpsuits as of late. They are so comfy and you can pull one on and look put together as long as the fit is right. This was another TJ Maxx find. Maybe I should have named this a TJ Maxx haul πŸ€”

Breakfast burritos are perfect for fall! When it’s chilly outside I have a hard time eating raw veggies. So if I can sautΓ© them up and wrap it up in a tortilla with some scrambled eggs, cheese, and hash browns…why not?! Also it’s super delicious and filling!

20181012_093835

Obsessing specifically over Fage’s 2% Greek yogurt. I normally use the 0% Greek yogurt, but the hubby had been mixing the two. He had some 2% leftover recently and I was trying to use it up and fell in love. It’s super creamy and it’s not as tart as the 0%. Super impressed! Will be sticking with the 2%!

20181011_082532

These sunnies were a find at Francesca’s. My favorite pair of sunnies recently broke and I’ve been on the hunt for a pair. Just like finding jean jackets are hard for me, finding sunnies that fit my face are difficult…maybe I’m just picky! Who knows? I saw these, tried them on and loved them. They’re so lovely!

Those are all my current favorites! Tell me what you’ve been loving this fall in the comments below!! Till next time!

Fashion Favorites

I don’t know if it’s getting older or just getting more comfortable in my own skin, but the way I look at clothing has really changed.

I feel like I could never find clothes that fit me properly or anything “in style” did absolutely nothing for my body. If it actually looked good it was uncomfortable, I would wear it once, tug and pull on it all night and never wear it again.

Recently, I have been having no issues finding clothes that work well for me. They are comfortable and cute and I am excited to wear them.

I’ve been loving dresses this past summer. It was hot and wearing anything denim, pant-related, or heavy was a no-go. Dresses were great because they were light and easy to pull on, but you still look put together and pretty!

As fall is coming I wanted to find some dresses to transition my way into fall and these next two do exactly that. Both of these fall right in middle of my shin which is a trend I’ve been loving.

This floral black one I got from Old Navy. They had it on sale for 50% off or something and I couldn’t resist. I also ended up getting a solid black version as well. I figure I can pair it with a denim jacket (once I find one) and some mules or white slip-ons and be good to go!

This wrap dress with the light denim material with the sweet floral-ish design had my heart the minute I found it on the sale rack at Target. It was $13 and I was positive it would not fit me. When I figured out the ties and got it on I was in love. I can’t even tell you how much I love this dress!

20180913_093947

What’s funny is that I can usually never find too many things from Old Navy that fit my petite frame and dresses at Target are pretty much the same way. I find that things are super baggy or tight around my hips/butt and hang loose around my waist/chest so I was incredibly happy to have found my dresses!

This last item is a jacket from Zara and I am completely unsure whether I keep it or return it. A part of me LOVES it and can’t wait for cooler temps to wear it with everything and everywhere. Another part is skeptical and mocking the first part.

20180913_103424

I have nothing like this teddy jacket. It fits big, but it’s snuggly and warm and IT HAS POCKETS. ugh.

 

Loving, into, obsessed-My favorites

Honestly, whatever you wanna call it, it’s basically a favorites. I’ve been kinda loving a lot lately and it all makes me happy as anything!

This NYX Slip Tease in the shade Rosy Outlook is so beautiful and glossy. I’ve been loving glossier lips and this is an incredible color. I ate with this on and even though it did come off it didn’t come off patchy and awful. It kinda just looked faded or rubbed off, but evenly. Does that make sense?

20180717_144646

When it was still fresh and unopened…

I’ve been loving doing my nails again and find it pretty therapeutic. This hot pink color from Sally Hansen has been brightening up my hands and feet!

20180720_173216

 

This play-suit that this picture is doing no justice for. It’s the most gorgeous, vivid green and it fits amazingly. It’s light and easy to throw on for when you want to look nice, but don’t have the time, energy, or effort to put in πŸ™‚

20180717_145022

I found these earrings at Aldo and needed them because I needed a few more everyday pairs and I like shiny things!

20180717_145502

20180717_150057

The missing pair are these golden bubbly studs!

This basic white t-shirt that is made not so basic with the cactus coming out of the pocket was too cute to not have.

20180717_145837

Another polish I’ve been really into is this turmeric yellow shade from OPI. I found this at TJ Maxx and couldn’t resist it.

20180720_173334

These shorts were on sale at H&M and they are so nice! I love that you can tie them up to really accentuate your waist and what more-they have butterflies on them!!

20180717_145743

Speaking of glossy lips, this lipstick by Revlon in the shade Wine with Everything #520 is beautiful. It gives you subtle, pearly shine and a good wash of color. It’s not super pigmented, but it’s great for a everyday no mess, no fuss type of situation.

20180717_144827

I LOVE this dress. It’s navy and floral and who isn’t digging the floral situation this summer? It’s just lovely to look at and even better on!

20180717_145247

There are so many other things, but I will cap it off at that for now! Next Friday, I’m thinking about doing a food favorites type of situation. Let me know what you think!

What are some things you are into lately?

 

A few recent purchases…

In other words a haul…you guys, I have been out and about buying things here and there so I wanted to share with you some of my recent favorite purchases!

Friends, I am a pretty small human to be put in perspective I am 5 feet tall (5’3/4″ to be exact) and because of that I am constantly rolling up pants, jeans, whatever. It’s annoying as anything. I had been looking into buying some petite sized jeans and I invested in this Top Shop pair. I can’t remember the last time I’ve had black jeans, but these are stretchy and comfy and hit me right at the ankle 😍

20180423_132646

I don’t know if you guys know how much I love socks, but these were too cute to resist and at $6 for a pack of 3 there was no point in trying!

20180423_122420

I had been wanting a Hamsa piece for a while now and I had run into this one at Alex and Ani. I convinced myself I didn’t need it and moved on, but I kept looking for something similar and could never find one that felt right. While at the mall we stepped in and looked at it and the hubs convinced me I couldn’t leave without it. I love delicate necklaces and this one is dainty and detailed-just perfection!

20180423_132453

I can guarantee you I would not have bought this top if it didn’t have the tiny black hearts all over it. I am such a girly girl that I would probably buy anything with little hearts all over itπŸ˜…

20180423_132737

I had seen something similar to these earrings a long time ago on Bauble Bar and I kind of loved them. I ended up not getting them because I am big into touching, feeling, and trying on and I can’t do that online. I found these at Target and after placing them next to my ears a few times and thinking about what I would wear with them they came home with me 😁

20180423_132235

I have always loved dresses more than skirts, but recently it’s been kinda reversed. I found this skirt at Cotton On and loved the color, the little flowers, and the ruffles on the bottom. I also loved that it is a wrap skirt and you can tie it up in a cute little bow!

20180423_132858

I hope you guys enjoyed this post! Let me know if you have any favorite recent purchases and what they were. Have a lovely weekend!

Sockaganza

Sockaganza is defined as an extravaganza of socks πŸ™‚ #jesstruths

I love socks…I love cute socks! It’s fun to look down at your feet and see adorable seal unicorns looking back at you. Am I right? Can I get an amen?

All the socks you will see are from Target (#notspons #iwish)

Do you hearteyeemoji socks as much as I do?

Target Haul

Let me start by saying that there is absolutely no food involved in this post! Can you believe it?? Major gasp! You guys know I love food, but I love Target and clothes and beauty too πŸ™‚

I thought since I recently went to Target and bought a bunch of beautiful things I would haul them on here because it’s one of my favorite things to watch/read!

Here we go:

I have to start off on a low note and it breaks my heart a tad bit. This polish by Essie is so gorgeous. This color felt like such a beautiful summer/fall transition, BUT it chips so quickly! I always use a base and top-coat, but it still chips within the day. If you have any tips to prevent this pleeeeeasssee let me know!

20171203_082549

Mrs. AlwaysRight by Essie

I did get this polish as well which I have not yet tried, but am excited to do so! It’s this beautiful dark red

20171203_082856

Garnet Red by Sally Hansen

I got three tops that I absolutely couldn’t leave the store without…they are all floral and just seemed like good options for the fall and winter in Cali πŸ˜€

The first is a cold shoulder top that I have in another light blue color. I love the way that the blue one looks and wear it so often I had to get this one. It’s more summery and this feels more fall/winter vibes with the colors so it’ll be loved during the next few months.

20171203_080902-1

This second one is a long sleeved top. I don’t know if you can see it, but it has a slight bell sleeve which I adored. It’s beautiful and flowy. The back dips a bit lower and has a cute tie so it can be tied up in the back!

20171203_080514

The third is also cold shoulder with a bright red floral print, but it’s in this dark navy so it seems seasonally appropriate πŸ™‚ The sleeve part has trim that makes it even more fem and girly. Major heart eye emojis!

20171203_080429

I wasn’t in complete love with all of the items in this next purchase, but I saw donuts and I was sold. I mean c’mon how adorable are these??

20171203_080025

This next item is functional and cute-I loved the soft, dusky pink. I had a bright pink wallet before this and it was nice and thin and fit everything. I wanted something similar and this one fit the bill!

Did you guys enjoy this non-food related post? I love hauls and thought it would be fun to do one of my own. Let me know what you think in the comments!
