Yes Pleases of the Week

“The best is yet to come.”

This week has been a rough week for me (more on that later), but as the weekend is just on the horizon, hope is in the air. It is all getting better and life is good. Through this rough week there have been a handful of things that have helped. These are the things that are my obsessions/ Yes Pleases that have helped me get through this rough week.

Hope they inspire and give y’all a pick me up whenever you are having a rough time. Here’s to an amazing weekend and new week. Let’s go Yes Pleases !

Yes Please #1: Country Music

Country Music seems to always be on my music play list. It is the perfect music for any occasion. More recently including this week it has helped pick me up out of rough times and back into a state of joy. I listen to it all and country music will always be my music Yes Please !

Yes Please #2: L’BRI Pure n’ Natural products

I will be the first to admit I haven’t in the past been as diligent with my skincare routine. I have noticed that when I am making sure to keep my routine in the morning and at night, I feel better inside and out. I have started to realize how important skincare and selfcare are, which are now both a constant priority for me. This past week especially was one that got better in part to my new skincare routine thanks to L’BRI Pure n’ Natural skincare products ( thanks again for sending them ). They are aloe based, all natural, great for my skin and easy to use. They have brought an ease to my routine, which continues to help me from skincare to selfceare, which in my book will continue to be a Yes Please !

Yes Please #3: Enjoying Outside with Evening Walks

For me it is not always easy to get up and go out and be active even though I really want to. Slowly, but surely it is getting easier and what has helped is evening walks after dinner with my mom. This has been a great mood booster and a push to get me back into a workout routine. It always helps me to be active when nature and good conversation are involved. It all makes for a big Yes Please !

Yes Please #4: Modern Family + Laughter

Laughter is the best medicine. When I am in need of a great laugh, I put on Modern Family. It is a show that never fails in making me have a belly full of laughs. Laughter and Modern Family make for a real pick me up and Yes Please !

Yes Please #5: DIY Manicure

As you all may know I love a great manicure and these days I am all about a DIY manicure. It has helped me in recent weeks and days because it puts me in a zen like relaxation state, which is always needed. Slowing my mind down can be a struggle, but making time for a DIY mani has certainly been a big helper in doing that. DIY mani time has helped de-stress and keeps me in a creative mindset throughout the last couple of weeks. I will continue to incorporate pamper/mani time when I can. My color of choice at the moment is this purple one from Claire’s, which fit right into my photo shoot fun of this week. Any activity that keeps me zen and creative will always be a Yes Please !

This last week or so was a challenge, but all of these have helped me throughout it and why they are this week’s Yes Pleases. Hope they will help y’all in any stressful times. Thanks for listening and here is to next week’s and for things looking up !

Yes Pleases of the Week

“They call it obssession, but I prefer the word love.”

Every week I seem to find new things that I just love, peak my interest, obsessed with, have to have or all of the above. I love finding out about new products, restaurants and more, which is why I am always saying, “Yes Please.” This is where my Yes Please series came to be awhile ago and I am officially relaunching it this week, yay ! I will continue to be sharing with y’all my Yes Pleases each week. I hope y’all enjoy and let’s kick this first one off πŸ™‚ !

Yes Please #1: Tejava Iced Tea

It is a tea I have been obsessed with for awhile. It is refreshing, delicious as well as all 100% all natural, micro brewed and ready to drink iced tea. Hope y’all love it like I do πŸ™‚ Tejava Iced Tea can be found at Target, Whole Foods Market and many of your local spots.

Yes Please #2: Anthony Rizzo in the Leadoff Spot

Ever since Anthony Rizzo of the Chicago CubsΒ got moved to the leadoff spot he has killed it. He is in a 12 game hitting streak(as I type that just changed to a 13 game hitting streak with a homer) that includes his first inning production has been spectacular. Anthony has 2 homers, a walk, a single and a double, which tells me he has staying power at leadoff. Go Cubs Go !

Yes Please #3: Formula 10.0.6 Skin-Clarifying Mud Mask

I just found out about Formula 10.0.6 recently. Let me tell you I am obsessed with this mask and can’t wait to try their other amazing products. A handful of the reasons why are because it smells great, easily accesible at Target or Ulta, affordable and most importantly it doesn’t irritate my extremely sensitive skin. Be sure to check this mask out and let me know what y’all think.

Yes Please #4: Sinful Colors Nail Polish

Sinful Colors has an array of options for nail polish, if I had the space I would definitely have them all. They are so fun, fabulous and fit with any ensemble or occasion. I have noticed too my Sinful Colors manis and pedis always lasts a long time (don’t forget a top coat every other day, helps it last longer).

Yes Please #5: Iced Green Matcha like this one from Lavender & Honey Espresso Bar

An Iced Green Matcha not only creates a great Instagram moment, but it is refreshingly delicious especially in this summer heat and if y’all are into green tea like I am πŸ™‚ If you aren’t into green tea, I suggest tasting a friends before ordering your own. It as a slight bitter taste, but doesn’t have as intense of one like regular green tea, but the whole milk helps to add some sweetness (not too sweet). A plus when ordering an Iced Green Matcha is that matcha is great to get some of your favorite antioxidants. Let me know what are some of your iced drinks πŸ™‚

These are my Yes Pleases for this week, stay tuned for next week’s Yes Pleases !

Watching sports has been one of America’s past times for a very long time. I know I fall into this category. Now how do you say I got into watching sports? My dad has been a lover of sports since he was little. So for me it started in the womb and I was born into rocking Chicago sports gear and routing for Chicago teams, which I bleed Chicago sports through and through. AS I got older every sports season became not just seeing my teams win, but about spending qulaity time with my dad and the rest of my family.

Supporting my teams and all the sports teams is more than that, don’t get me wrong watching them win is amazing, but it is also about family, friendship and laughter. Watching sports with my dad and the rest of my family is where my heart is always ! I will never be to old for this and as I have gotten older it is fun to incorporate my love of sports into my love of fashion . Now I can love both at the same time !

IMG_7976

My love of sports goes deep and way back to the beginning. It will always be where my heart is because it’s all about family for me (the fashion is a welcomed bonus).

Christmas Time is Here with Fabulous Flare and Tradition

IMG_4744-2IMG_4685

Christmas is here and I am smiling from ear to ear. This is my favorite time of year for many reasons. Yes, it is exciting to get gifts and give them, but this is not why I love Christmas. I will keep it short and sweet as to why because let me tell you this topic alone could be months worth of blog posts.

Christmas Time for me is my favorite because it means laughter with family and friends, sitting by the Christmas tree, eating a delicious honey baked ham, A Christmas Story movie will probably always make an apperance, Christmas mass where we all get to rock amazing holiday fashion(the fashions pictured are two of my favorite looks this year !) and yes rocking my new Christmas PJS.

Christmas time is all about tradition and that tradition is spending time with each other and yes we do open gifts, but what I get excited about the most is watching everyone else open their gifts and seeing them get giddy. With my family there seems to always be lots of laughter when we open our stockings and gifts, which creates such a warmth in me πŸ™‚

Christmas time tradition also includes picking up a tree, decorating it with family ornaments, shopping together, wrapping presents, baking yummy cookies, putting up lights with my dad and in recent years, I have been going to Pinterest for a couple new DIY decorations for each new Christmas time season.

My accessories for the holidays always include this heart sparkle ring from my mom. It is sentimental and an added bonus it sparkles. This amazing bracelet was gifted to me by Pura Vida, which is fun and festive. Also makes for an amazing gift πŸ™‚

I will end this year’s Christmas time post with why Christmas time for me is extra exciting. The reason is because it is my Amazing mother’s birthday the very same day we celebrate Christmas ! We celebrate it by going to a fun movie, opening bday gifts and fullfilling my mom’s sweet tooth with a birthday cake.

With Jingle Bells playing, trees shining with tinsel and cookies being eaten, what do you love most about the holiday seasonΒ ?
