Target Purchase Haul (9/25/2018)

Hey fashionistas! I had recently gone to Target, go figure! I purchased some clothes for school but I also needed some work pants for my new internship. I still haven’t gotten everything I was looking for just yet because I still need another pair of black work pants. Nonetheless I wanted to show you all everything I got!

So the first item I got was a really cute yellow floral top that I actually ended up wearing for the first day of school as well as the green conductor hat. I also got a pair of gray, navy blue and white/black plaid work pants. On top of all of that I got myself some accessories as well. I picked up a cute pair of red cat eye sunglasses and lightning bolt hoop earrings. The last item I got is a black and gold belt with two gold circles as the buckle (which is in style right now)!

I absolutely love Target and of course I love everything I got. I hope you enjoyed this post and remember to subscribe for email notifications for when I post new content. Make sure you comment down below what your thoughts are on the items I got from Target and what you got on your last Target trip.

Pura Vida Rep PR Unboxing (9/21/2018)

Hey fashionistas! I’m super excited to write this post about the amazing company called Pura Vida Bracelets. This company is one that I’ve been following for about 7-6 Years now. For each item they sell, it provides work for Costa Rican artisans. This is something that is near and dear to my heart because not only do I love helping people but my brother-in-law is from Costa Rica and he has family that lives there, some are also artisans. This makes my attachment to this company even stronger! Pura Vida Bracelets also sells bracelets for non-profit and charity organizations to raise money for that organization. It’s a beautiful company that sells beautiful products, and I suggest checking them out on the Pura Vida Bracelets Website!

Now, we go to the unboxing of this product. As you can see in the title I said Pura Vida Rep. I am a representative for Pura Vida Bracelets, I share what the company is, the products they have and what they do for charity. I get a code that gives 20% off of a purchase, free bracelets to showcase and I get paid when someone uses my promo code. As a rep, if you make sales you get rewarded with obviously a cut of the purchases but also free products. Since I reached a certain threshold of selling products I was sent free bracelets, cards and stickers which is what I am unboxing today!

I got a ton of colorful and cute bracelets, I got some promo code cards, a congratulations card and a few stickers. I absolutely love everything I got, I can’t wait to wear these items! I am so grateful for getting these things and to be able to represent a company I truly believe in. If you are interested in purchasing something from Pura Vida Bracelets feel free to use my promo code STEPHRUSSELL20 for 20% off your purchase!

Kate Spade Present Haul (9/18/2018)

Hey fashionistas! A while ago my sister gave me a present for my birthday and I never added it to my 21st Birthday Present Haul. I didn’t do this because my sister and I met for my birthday after I already wrote that post! So I wanted to finally take the chance to show what she got me.

My sister knows me too well in general especially when it comes to my fashion taste. But she also reads my blog and she saw my Birthday Wishlist post! She went off of my wishlist and got me something I really wanted as well as another gorgeous matching piece to go with it.

I cannot explain how obsessed I am with these Kate Spade pieces. The earrings were what was on my birthday wishlist but I also got a gorgeous Kate Spade bracelet to match. I am super grateful to have gotten these for my birthday and I want to thank my sister for this amazing gift! I’m kind of glad these weren’t covered in my birthday haul post because this gift deserves a whole post designated only to this!

I again am very thankful for this present and I hope you enjoyed this post and remember to subscribe for email notifications for when I post new content. Comment down below if you’ve gotten anything Kate Spade for your birthday!

Last Minute Back To School Shopping At Dollar Tree: Haul (9/9/2018)

Hey lovelies! I realized after going to school that I still needed a couple of other things to get so I am fully prepared for this semester. I ran to the Dollar Tree and I grabbed some last minute school supplies! I love shopping at the Dollar Tree for some school supplies because a lot of the time things you get are overpriced.

I was able to pick up some really cute notebooks to jot down some blog, YouTube or just any type of ideas I have. Little notebooks and journals come in handy for me during the school year especially since I made a thousand to-do lists. Ryan calls me the queen of list making.

Other stuff I picked up was index cards, binder clips, a mini stapler, correction white-out tape, paper clips, highlighters, and post-it notes. I feel that buying a lot of this stuff would have cost triple if I got it somewhere else. This is why I love getting certain stuff at the Dollar Tree. It saves you money in the long run.

JustFab Purchase And Re-Decorating My Closet (9/8/2018)

Hey fashionistas! I am super excited to write today’s post because of course I have a JustFab Purchase which is actually my JustFab from August (I’ve just been super busy with posts and couldn’t review it in August). But I also re-decorated a part of my closet which is also something that I am ecstatic to share with you all!

First comes first, let’s talk about what I got from JustFab! I wanted a pair of white mules and I got exactly what I was looking for with these shoes! They are perfect! I felt that these were super chic especially with them being pointed toe mules. It’s different but they look very unique and fashionable. I’ve honestly been wearing them with everything!

Now, let’s discuss my closet. I had this bottom shelf jam packed with boots and shoes. It didn’t look cute so I wasn’t very happy with it. But I recently went to a Forever 21 (it’s always a hot mess in there so I wasn’t expecting to be inspired by their set up), and I was inspired by how they folded their jeans and laid them on the shelves. I took all of my jeans out, folded them and put them in the last shelf. My room has the feel of a store right now but I wanted it to look a little more stylish than just having jeans displayed. So, I grabbed my white mules and threw them in the middle of the piles of folded jeans and I love it!

I am super obsessed with the way my closet and room looks right now. There are still things that I want to do to my room to make it perfect but for right now I am super happy with this look! I hope you enjoyed reading this post and remember to subscribe for email notifications for when I post new content! Comment down below any ideas you have for a very small nook in a room! I need some inspiration!

Small Gift For Beginning Of School (9/7/2018)

Hey y’all! So this week I had my first few days of school and I have a lot of stuff in my plate at the moment. Between going to school, doing an internship, doing my YouTube as well as my blog, and my extracurriculars it has been a lot. There is just a ton to juggle right now in my life and I definitely needed a pick-me-up. That was when Ryan came home the other night with a gift for me to help me get through my first few weeks of class.

He got me a really cute ceramic to-go coffee mug with a tag on it that reads “May your coffee be strong and your students be calm.” I honestly think this is a perfect gift for someone who is going to school and has a lot on their plate. It is such a small act of kindness that really made my stressful week so much better. Ryan also threw a gift card inside the mug to a local coffee restaurant near us. I really appreciated this gift and I hope with you all seeing this random act of kindness, you go out and try and make someone else’s day a little brighter.

Sephora Haul: What I Spent My Birthday Gift Cards On (9/6/2018)

Hey beauties! I wanted to quickly come on here because I recently spent all of my birthday gift cards on something at Sephora. I was super excited about getting this item and I wanted to do a haul on to show you all everything I got.

My experience shopping at Sephora is always great. I love it even better when I have a friend to bring along. It’s so much fun just walking around searching things with each other and talking about the products. One of my best friends came with me to grab my Sephora products.

After almost a half an hour passes by and I finally picked out the items that I wanted. I had $80 in gift cards so I grabbed the palette I’ve wanted for a while. I got the Huda Beauty Desert Dusk palette. I’ve been hesitant to purchase this mostly because it was super expensive and there were other affordable palettes I still wanted. But I was able to finally get it as well as a pair of Sephora brand lashes in Demure #14 which are very wispy lashes. I also grabbed an aloe face mask for Ryan. Ryan loves to use aloe for many different things so when I saw this I had to get it for him!

I was very happy with my purchase and I will be doing a review on both the face mask and the palette. I hope you enjoyed this post and remember to subscribe for email notifications for when I post new content. Comment down below what other kinds of posts you want to see!

First Time Shopping At Cotton On: Haul And Try On (9/2/2018)

Hey fashionistas! I had another first time shopping experience but this time it was at Cotton On. If you hadn’t seen the last post of “my first time shopping at” I went to Primark for the first time ever. If you want to checkout that post here is the link: My First Time Shopping At Primark: Haul And Try On. So, I really wanted to talk about my experience here and share what I got.

When I first saw the store I wasn’t very interested in going in. I was indifferent and since I didn’t know what it was I figured that I would just keep it that way. But my friends really wanted to go in so I agreed to tag along. I walked in and immediately found at least five things that I really wanted or was totally in love with. I then gravitated towards the graphic tees. I usually don’t purchase graphic tees anymore but recently I’ve started to get back into them.

I ended up purchasing this black cropped graphic tee that says “Exclusive. Paris, Milan”. I was already sold once I saw it because it’s honestly a really elegant and simple graphic tee. I also really wanted a tote bag because they had super cute tote bags for only $2 a piece! But I restrained from getting one.

Instead, the cashier asked if I wanted to make a $1 donation to Cotton On Foundation and me being the huge philanthropist that I am, always looking for a way to help someone or something in need, I said yes. I was able to pick out a gorgeous bracelet which was how you donated.

Not only did I purchase a really pretty shirt and got a really pretty bracelet. I walked out of Cotton On feeling a sense of fulfillment since I was able to donate towards their foundation. I found out that the Cotton On Foundation I donated towards was to help children living in poverty be able to get educated. This really makes me feel like even a small act like picking out a bracelet to purchase and wearing it out can make a difference for someone who needs help.

After shopping there I proudly wear my bracelet around and tell anyone that I can about the Cotton On Foundation. Now going back to the shirt that I purchased, I paired this graphic tee with a slim pair of high waisted jeans from Zara. For shoes I wore a pair of red heeled mules and no accessories other than my glasses.

I am very much obsessed with my purchase and couldn’t be happier. I recommend shopping here to get some cute clothes and to donate even just $1 towards the Cotton On Foundation.

Forever 21 Purchase Haul And Try On (8/31/2018)

Hey fashionistas! I’m here with another haul post and I will be showing you all what I got as well as trying the items on for y’all! I went to Forever 21 to do some back to school clothes shopping and I found some really awesome stuff for extremely affordable prices. I honestly can’t wait to wear some of these outfits out and about!

Let’s first discuss what I got and the prices of each item! I got a cropped forest green v-neck sweater for $15, and I got a forest green pleather skirt for $14! I also picked up a golden yellow long silk skirt for $17 and I browsed the clearance rack and was able to get a pair of high waisted white khaki shorts for only $3 (this is because F21 was having a sale where select clearance was an extra 50% off)!

The cropped sweater will definitely be cozy for the upcoming fall season. I don’t have many cropped sweaters so I definitely wanted to grab one since they’re in style right now. Plus, I was obsessing over the forest green color so I just needed it!

Okay, so I have a small story about this golden yellow skirt. I recently went to see Mamma Mia 2 and I was very much in love with all of young Donnas outfit choices. One particular outfit I was loving was when she wore a golden yellow skirt with a black knotted t-shirt. So, after the movie I went shopping and was on the search for a similar skirt and I got this one. It’s gorgeous!

Another forest green item I was obsessed with was this pretty pleather skirt. I like to play with texture when it comes to fashion so I wanted to see what kind of outfits I could come up with for a pleather skirt! I have to say that even though it is a skirt, I can see myself wearing this in the fall time.

The last item I got were these super cute khaki white shorts. I actually live for the outfit I put together for this picture and I have been wanting to wear it out before summer ends! This was more of an impulse buy because I don’t have any good white shorts and these were only $3!

I really love everything I got and I hope you enjoyed this post and remember to subscribe for email notifications for when I post new content. Comment down below what your thoughts are on the items I got!

My First Time Shopping At Primark: Haul And Try On (8/29/2018)

Hey fashionistas! I’m back with yet another haul, surprised? You shouldn’t be. I just recently embarked on my first journey to Primark. I’ve heard only great things from this store so I was super excited to shop here. Once I got in the store I realized there was a ton of fashionable items for a very VERY affordable price.

I got a long tan sweater for only $14, a pair of shoes for only $8 and a pair of dress pants for only $11. I could tell that the quality of the products weren’t the best but it was definitely up to par with fast fashion stores. I also got a really cute diamond compact mirror for $1! I was super excited getting all of these super cute items for so cheap.

I made a whole outfit with everything I got and I am very much obsessed with this outfit the products that I got and the store itself. I will definitely be going back there to shop some more before the school year starts. I definitely saw some other things I’d like to get. I am very happy with this purchase and how it fits me. I recommend checking this store out if you haven’t already!
