Yo Dude

Muscle tank; The Laundry Room | Leggings; Forever 21 | Boots; Kohl's | Bangles; Free People | Ring; Modern Design

I have a total obsession with muscle tees, and The Laundry Room has one of the best selections of them out there. The brand originated here in my own city of Fresno, and have recently made it onto the likes of Nasty Gal, and Shop Planet Blue. It's rather exciting seeing a brand from my hometown make it out there. Lucky for me, their flagship store is located here, so I can go in and try on everything and not have to wait for anything I like to be shipped. If for any reason to happen to be out here, I suggest you pay a visit to their flagship store.
It's the second day of autumn, and it's actually starting to feel a bit like it here in central California! Super excited to be able to pull out all my jackets and fuzzy sweaters again. Plus some of the new pieces I've purchased within the past month. Be sure to keep a look out for those on the blog soon! Though I must admit, this is the time of the year I wish I lived on the east coast. I spent an October out there once, and I must say, it is absolutely gorgeous out there when the leaves start turning. Nostalgia. Sigh.

You all have a great start to your week!

Another Better Late Than Never

Shoes; Forever 21 | Skirt, thrifted from Goodwill | Tee; Gifted from the Silent Planet boys

So... Another from back in July. Figured I'd get these out of the way before posting any of the newer stuff I have ready! I never wear t-shirts without cutting the sleeves off. I just don't like the fit of them. Always turn them into muscle tanks. This one was so kindly gifted to me by my friends in Silent Planet, a hardcore band whose motivation is to spread a positive message, and be there for their fans and friends for whatever they may need. They are seriously some of the most genuine and kind guys I know. Please, check them out, and if they are ever in a city near you, go and see them. 
These flats I've had for a couple of years now, and they're still in pretty good shape. Super comfortable too, for those days I don't feel like wearing heels at the salon. And how cute is this skirt I found at Goodwill?! I swear I can always find awesome pieces there.
Anyway, life is pretty dang good at the moment. I most definitely can't complain.

I hope you all are having an awesome week!

Shoes; Irregular Choice | Shorts; Lucca Couture via Buffalo Exchange | Top; c/o a friend

Yes, I am aware these photos are two months old now. Yes, I am aware that is pretty dang sad. But, better late than never, no? My absolute favorite shoes. I love the architectural aspect of these Irregular Choice Annabelle Trolleys. I don't think I've ever been more obsessed with a pair of shoes. I had literally wanted these for a year and a half, and finally gave in and purchased them. Best decision. The shirt I recently cut into a crop top. My friend, Corey, had gifted me this shirt while he was in the process of forming his new band, Storm Circus. I'm sure you all remember these shorts from a more recent post. Love them. They're the most comfortable things ever, and I love the bright colors.

So, it's September now. This year is flying by. It's also still incredibly hot here in California. I don't normally complain, because I hate being cold. But... I've recently purchased so many A/W pieces that I just want to wear already, which I can't in 100 degree weather! So, California. Cool down some, if only for my new clothes... Ha.

Hope you all are having a great week!

Skin Care: Hydroxatone

I was recently sent Hydroxatone's AM/PM Anti-Wrinkle Complex, and can I just say I love it? This complex is a cream, one of which you don't need a lot of to spread around, so this product will last you a good while. I'm always weary of trying new skin products, as my skin is very sensitive and I often have allergic reactions, but I didn't have any problems at all with Hydroxatone! So if you're at all like me in the skin department, I can say you won't have any problems with this as I probably have the most sensitive skin on the planet. 

Although I am a bit young to have to worry about wrinkles, early preventative care never hurts! I do feel as though my skin has firmed a bit after using this consistently, and I love that it has a sunblock in it as well. I apply it at night after washing my face with my Mary Kay cleanser, alongside my daily Mary Kay moisturizer, and also again in the morning before applying makeup. It creates a great base for my foundation. 

All in all, I would definitely give this product a recommend, and will definitely continue to use this as part of my daily skin care routine!
