WISHLIST // Valentines Day with Shein

If you're like me, you love a good theme to dress up for. While Valentines Day can spark mixed emotions for some (where my single girls at!?), I personally enjoy the day that's inspired by love and plan on adding softer, feminine touches to my sporty-street style.

Since working with Shein, I've found myself browsing through their site more and more. Such cute affordable items are sprinkled throughout! Here are some of my personal favorites that I'd love to sport for Valentines Day.

1. DRESSES

1 Bell Sleeves // 2 Embroidered // 3 Floral



3. SKIRTS

1 Sweetheart // 2 Red Cut Out // 3 Stroll in the City
Any pieces catch your eye? What are your plans for Valentines Day?
Whether it's a pretty dress or comfy pj's, I hope you have a lovely day!

OOTD // Be A Weirdo

Can you guess how much I love this top?
I'll tell you right now that NO YOU CANNOT FATHOM IT!

Okay, maybe you have something similar in your closet and you can understand. But seriously, this cropped, high neck top from H&M is my latest obsession along with this beret. 
I've always been more of a beanie girl, but when I spotted this hat resting in the thrift store for $1, I had to snag it. And I'm so glad I did! Sometimes you need to take a risk and experiment with something outside of your comfort zone. You never know if it'll pay off or not!

And I mean that outside of the fashion realm as well. For 2016, I want to grow as a person in all aspects - which is hard, because I tend to enjoy mediocrity. I'll blame it on my wallflower nature. Blending in and hiding in the background has led to a life spent settling in so many ways.

Maybe that's why I agreed to train to teach a class at my school's gym.
I didn't want to say anything because what if I don't get approved to teach? I have all of this semester to learn bits of the class and teach portions of it, but at the end, I'm going to have to lead a whole 50 minute Lift class by myself in front of the gym director. Then it'll be decided whether I can teach there or not.

But I decided I might as well share this, because regardless of whether I "pass" or not, I am actively seeking growth and am going outside of my comfort zone to do so. And that is nothing to be ashamed of. 

Wish me luck! 

But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.
2 Peter 3:18

MUSIC MONDAY // Panic! At the Disco

Does anyone else remember their youthful, punk phase in middle school? Or perhaps you're still reveling in said phase? Either way, you'll love listening to P!ATD's new album, Death of A Bachelor. Each tune is a solid track guaranteed to prompt some dancing feet and possible headbanging along. This has been on repeat for me while I'm at the gym. Perfect tunes for inspiring a good workout!
Here are a few of my favorites from the album:







Hope your Monday has an upbeat start!

BEAUTY // Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow

I think it's fairly obvious that when it comes to clothes, I'm a girl who sticks strongly to neutrals (preferably black). However, when it comes to makeup? Well, that's a whole other game. 
Okay. Not really.
But I'm working on it.

Normally I stick with statement making lipsticks if I want to add color to my routine, but I've been wanting to experiment a bit more with eyeshadows. Nothing crazy, but a nice hint of color would be nice. Introducing this pretty, violet shadow from Maybelline!

Their Color Tattoo shadows have been products I'd heard about for a while, and thanks to Beautyspin, I was able to test drive this particular shade.

I ended up blending it into my everyday neutral shadows of golden-brown to create a pretty, everyday look with a hint of color! It's real subtle (just the way I like it), but I think it adds a certain something-something. Especially to my brown eyes! I've always been told purple is a good color for brown eyes, and I'd have to agree. Combined with a hint of gold liner, it's the perfect match!

As for the staying power of this shadow?
Considering my oily-slicked lids viciousness, this hint of purple clung on to the bitter end with dignity. Which is a lot better than what I can say for a lot of other eyeshadows! I'm going to have to experiment more fully with this color, but for now, I like popping it into the corner of my eyes for a pretty perk to an everyday look.

Have you ever tried the Color Tattoo eyeshadows from Maybelline? What was your opinion of them?
