    Embroidered Skirt

    Don’t you just love this fun skirt? As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to have it and you absolutely cannot beat this price. This piece is very detailed and it’s made well. I almost wore this with over-the-knee boots but opted for some sock boots instead, which I regretted because it was SO COLD outside but anything for ya’ll! You can shop for this adorable skirt here and I recommend sizing up. This cool wall is located at Public School 972!…

    Get In Shape–My Favorite Health & Fitness Apps

    This is the time of year that I like to call, “New year, new me season“–the gym is packed at all hours of the day, grocery lines are filled with people who have nothing but fruit and veggies in their carts and our TVs are inundated with commercials promoting weight loss programs. Getting in shape and living a healthier lifestyle requires discipline and holding yourself accountable. Fitness apps are a great way to keep yourself in check and I want to share a couple of…

    Candice Ann X Nom Dudes X Jeng Chi Restaurant

    Dallas is full of delicious NOMS so when I was given the opportunity to partner with Nom Dudes and my good friend Jessica (Vo) Thai, I jumped at the chance! We went to Jeng Chi Restaurant and had a tower of dumplings, their famous green onion pancakes and washed it all down with dessert! The dumplings were bursting with flavor and if you’re like me, they have a ton of vegetarian options. One of the things I really respected about Jeng Chi is the science behind…

    Greek Key Print Crop Jacket

    I absolutely LOVE fun patterns and bright colors. I was drawn to this jacket because it’s just different and you can do so many different things with it! This piece fits true to size, however; if you are a little bit more voluptuous at the top, I recommend that you size up. I am wearing a size small. I chose these high waist dark wash jeans from Forever 21 and because I wanted the jacket to really pop, I styled this with a clean black…

    Lesson 3: Make Time for the Ones you Love

    As I get closer to turning 30 and I reflect on the last 10 years of my life, I realize how quickly and suddenly life just went by. I think about how different things are today and how I could have done things differently. Mostly, I think about how short and precious life really is. Lesson 3 of  What 30 year old Me would tell Myself in my 20’s is, “Make Time for the Ones you Love.” This is a hard, valuable lesson that hit…

    Flourish

    I LOVE taking chances on good deals! This cute shirt was less than $15 and you can get it here! I got a size small, and found that it fits true to size. I decided to style this with a pair of black jeans and black shoes to give this blouse the extra pop it deserves! This shirt is actually a crop top so I recommend going with a mid/high rise pant or skirt. If you want to pull this off for fall, put a…

    “Woman Up”

    “Woman up,” “Boss up,” “Man up…” are one in the same. Take a look at your life and reflect on all of the challenges that life has thrown your way–I mean really think about them. Crazy, right? You’re also probably saying to yourself, “I didn’t know how I was going to get through that.” But you did–am I right? No matter what the consequences were of the choices you had to make to get through that obstacle, here you are today. At the end of…

    “Don’t Cheat Yourself, Baby Girl”

    As I get closer and closer to the day I turn 30 (November 29th) I am going to be sharing a few important lessons I learned in the 2nd decade of my life. “Don’t cheat yourself, baby girl” is something I repeat in my mind anytime a bad thought or doubt tries to kill my vibe. It’s what I wish I would have told myself more because these five words transform the way I go about my life today. As young children, we’re raised to…

    Gettin’ Leggy with it!

    I’ve been getting a lot of questions about my leg workout routine so I figured I’d share an example of what typical leg day is for me. For the most part, I fit in two leg days per week because in order to get the results you want, you HAVE TO work your legs hard. Think about it– we use our legs every day. It’s probably one of our most, if not THE most utilized part of our body so the only way to get…

    Ruffle Your Feathers

    If there’s two things I love, it’s ruffles and off-the-shoulder tops so this shirt did everything for me and I got it from H&M for a steal– 7 bucks!! H&M really knows how to do a sale, am I right? I got these shorts from ASOS and they’re definitely going to become my go-to pair if I’m ever in “denim doubt” because this wash is so versatile (you can pair this denim color and wash with literally anything). More of this look below and links…
