I'll be taking the rest of my vacation days from the magazine during the holidays and you can bet your bottom dollar I won't be all dressed up every day for that. I mean Christmas & New Year's obviously, but on the in between days, I'm 100% looking forward to lounging in comfy clothes. Cue the athleisure look I'm sporting here.

Destiny Day Spa Experience

Here's something you might already know about me if you know me in real life: I'm a workaholic. I'm always busy, and when I'm not, my mind is consumed with what's next on my list of things to do. So when London from Destiny Day Spa contacted me to come in and check out some of the services they offer, I will honestly say I had my doubts. Not about the spa or the quality of their services, but about whether I had the time to actually go in and be pampered. You're probably thinking, "Seriously? Who would pass up a massage and facial?" I decided to let my worries fall to the wayside for a couple of hours last Thursday and I took London up on her proposal. Here's how it went...

Working on You Series: Day 1

Recently, my life has started to undergo some changes. Very recently, actually. And I'm starting to realize, on my own time, that I can be no good in my relationships with other people (family, friends, romantic, co-workers, etc.) unless I am working on myself.

The Stand Out LBD

Like most girls, my closet is full of "little black dresses", but no LBD is created equal in my eyes and this one from stands out in a crowd. It's unique cut is suuuupppperrrr figure flattering and fits perfectly in all the right places.

LipSense c/o Kissable Lips by Kelsie

Here's the thing about me and makeup: we have a love/hate relationship. I love makeup, but I'm really no good at applying it or remembering to re-apply things like lipstick/gloss. When Kelsie from Kissable Lips by Kelsie contacted me about her product, I was intrigued. Lipstick that lasts all day without having to re-apply? I'm down to try that.

Buckle Saddle Bag from Versona

I woke up this morning knowing that although it was going to be a beautiful and sunny day, there would still be a slight chill in the air. I'm not a fan of "chill" when it comes to weather, ya'll. So I knew I needed a light sweater but I wanted my outfit to still be spring appropriate, hence the blush color.
