No one Can Forget the Crisp White Shirt

Hey All!

Hope you all had a great week. One item that I want to throw out there for a Great Fall addition is the Crisp White Shirt. Who could ever forget the legendary white shirt that made its way into the fashion world years ago. The crisp white shirt is a must have. It is a staple that can be worn in many different ways. It is an effortless piece and can be dressed up or down, depending on what the occasion is.

I personally love wearing a crisp, white shirt either tied in front or with a great pair of jeans, tucked in with a classic belt. I recently wore one of my favorite, white shirts recently with a great pair of cut off jean shorts and my comfy Gucci Slides. This outfit would’ve looked great with a classic belt and jeans or even a denim skirt and some strappy heels or classic sneakers. The classic , white shirt will be around for years to come. This shirt can also be worn as an addition for a great pair of slacks. If you are headed to work or even a dinner date, this shirt is a keeper in more ways than one.

Everyone loves a good , crisp white shirt

Years ago, White shirts were labeled as shirts for people who could afford the luxury things. Business men , back in the 1800’s would wear them everyday, and people thought they just owned many of them to keep them so white and crisp. That is really how they came up with the terms “white collar’ and “blue collar”. Now it a favorite with everyone.

Now days, White crisp shirts are still seen as professional attire to an extent, as many working people wear them, but they have evolved in to so much more. They have evolved them into comfort, functionality and have styled them in to so many different ways. You can buy them with tall collars, short collars, and collarless. No matter what, or how you wear it, it is one of the most loved shirts to ever come about, and I love mine!

Coming Up With The Perfect Fitness Regimen

Nowadays, we’re becoming more and more aware of how our actions and decisions impact our body, out happiness and our overall well being. The healthier the life choices we make, the better we will generally feel. Now, there are all sorts of aspects of wellbeing that we can focus on, ranging from diet to mental health, but for now, let’s focus on exercise. As we are all well aware, exercise is important for all of us. There’s a good reason that it’s recommended that we get one hundred and fifty minutes of moderate aerobic exercise a week, or seventy five minutes of vigorous aerobic exercise a week. It helps us to build strength. It helps us to build stamina. It helps us to remain flexible and supple. It also helps us to manage our weight if we are overweight or obese. But often, many of us avoid exercise. We have negative associations with it and would rather spend our time doing something more “enjoyable”. Now, exercise can be enjoyable. The issue is that many of us have been drawn into thinking that running on a treadmill in the gym or lifting weights is the only option for us. Now, if you enjoy these things, great! But if not, it’s time to start coming up with an exercise routine that better meets your needs and preferences. Here are a few different things you can do to stay fit and in shape!

Hire a Personal Trainer

If your issue is motivation, or simply not knowing what types of exercise to do for the results you’re looking to achieve, hiring a personal trainer could provide the perfect solution! Personal trainers are fully trained in fitness and will do everything they can to show you the correct exercises, the correct form, and ensure your fitness journey stays on track. Personal training does come at a cost, but this is good. You’re less likely to miss your session if you know you’ll be losing out on money and letting someone down. So, browse trainers in your area and settle on one with good reviews.

Try a Home Workout

Sometimes, people simply can’t be bothered to leave the house to attend gym sessions, fitness classes or sports clubs. If this sounds familiar to you and you’re more comfortable exercising independently, why not come up with a home workout? You may need to invest in some gym equipment or accessories from Rappd, but it’s more than worth the investment. Plus, you’ll be saving membership and class costs anyway! There are plenty of online tutorials and fitness videos you can follow to get started on the right foot. Just make sure that you don’t push yourself too hard and that you know the correct way to use all of your equipment before getting started.

Sports Clubs

If you like being social, sports clubs could tick your boxes. Sports clubs incorporate a social element into exercise. Often, people who attend sports clubs are having such a fun time playing that the exercise doesn’t even cross their mind. It’s much easier to work out when you’re having a laugh than when you’re stood on a cross trainer with little else to think about than how worn out you’re getting! Some of the most popular types of sports clubs include:

  • Football or soccer
  • Basketball
  • Baseball
  • Rugby
  • Cricket
  • Netball
  • Dance

Swimming

Many of us tend to associate swimming pools with kids splashing about and going down water slides. But there are plenty of swimming facilities out there for adults looking to exercise. They tend to be separated into lanes, so everyone can swim at their own pace. Becoming a strong swimmer isn’t only a great form of exercise. It also provides you with an invaluable life skill that can keep you safe in cases of contact with water. On top of this, swimming is a great option for the vast majority of people. It’s a simple way to get a thorough workout. Believe it or not, water can support up to 90% of your body weight, which means that this type of exercise is ideal if you are obese, disabled, have health conditions or are older. It will allow you to exercise while taking the weight and pressure off you. Plus, you can look forward to improved coordination, an all-over workout and maximised cardiovascular capabilities.

These are just a few suggestions, but hopefully, at least one of the options mentioned will appeal to you! Give a few a try and see what works for you!

I just can’t get enough of the gorgeous long cardigans and the over the knee boots in all different styles and colors. Can I have them all Please? I have 7 Staples That I think Would add so many dimensions to your fall wardrobe.

Over The Knee Boots

OTK Boots are a must have for the Fall. These boots can really add so much to any type of outfits. These boots look great with dresses, and skirts and I absolutely love OTK boots with long cardigans and leggings. The popular Stuart Weitzman boots are a label staple, but you do not need to spend that on a pair of boots if you feel that doesn’t fit your budget. Steve Madden makes great boots and so does Sam Edelman. OTK boots are perfect for the Fall.

Long Black Cardigan

Black to me is such a versatile color. I mean what doesn’t go with the color Black? One thing I love about a good, black long cardigan is that it can be added to a daytime outfit and an evening outfit to add some flair. One of my favorite outfits is OTK boots with a long black cardigan and some rugged jeans. It’s a very casual outfit with some dynamic. A long, black cardigan will never do you wrong.

Denim Jacket

I have loved wearing a good denim jacket this past fall. I actually even wore it during the spring on chilly nights. It has become such a popular staple in the fashion world. Zara sells some amazing jackets , and HM has some great ones too. This jacket even looks great with a long tank dress. You can wear a denim jacket with any color. It truly makes any color pop.

Loafers

Loafers have become one of my favorite type of shoe. It is a great addition to any shoe collection. I am loving the animal print loafers that are out everywhere. Loafers look great with any type of jeans, and also look great with long skirts, and even a great pair of shorts. I really truly hope Loafers are around for a long time. They are an easy go-to shoe, and most are really comfortable.

Black Leggings

Black leggings are a simple MUST-HAVE. They go with literally everything and anything. I love Black leggings with OTK boots and love them to go to the gym. The great thing about these leggings is that they can be dressed up or down. You can go from the gym to dinner with only changing a few pieces of clothing. They are a great must have for the Fall, and did I mention how comfy they are? Lululemon makes some great leggings.

Puffer Jacket

I can’t get enough of puffer jackets when it comes to chilly weather. They are everywhere, and I can see why. They come in a multitude of colors, and they are great for those chilly nights. I absolutely love the way they look with jeans and booties. It really creates a great Fall Look. Puffer vests are great too. They both are very versatile pieces that can be really sporty looking in a fall like way. Burberry makes some great jackets , as well as Zara.

Brown Staple Belt

A good brown belt is a must have in my book when it comes to the Fall weather. A good belt looks great with some booties, jeans and a nice , white crisp shirt with a jacket, or cardigan. If you are looking for a good staple belt, Gucci makes some great belts. If you are looking for a cheaper version, I love Zara belts. A belt is a great statement piece that can really top off a Fall outfit.

There are my Top 7 Fashion must haves to have in your closet for the Fall Season. These pieces can be dressed up with just about any type of article of clothing. IT’s all about the way you feel when you walk out the door.

My Sephora Favorites I Use Everyday

It’s that time of the year again, and Sephora is having an amazing sale! I wanted to share with you all some of the items I use everyday to get ready.

Charlotte Tilbury eye palette

Charlotte Tilbury is the gem of all gems when it comes to makeup. The minute she comes out with a new item, I seem to never be able to get enough of it. She’s pure genius, and so is her makeup. Her eye palette, which I use everyday glides on the eye lids and never creases. That’s one thing that can be annoying about eye makeup. The longer the day goes on, the makeup can crease. Not Charlotte Tilbury. It’s the ultimate best palette ever.

The best eye palette ever

Charlotte Tilbury No Filter Foundation

Foundation can be tricky. It’s always so hard to find the right one that works well with your skin. They can range from looking to oily, or looks like you are wearing a mask. Charlotte Tilbury No Filter Foundation makes your skin look Flawless. It evens out skin tone, and makes your skin look amazing. There is no better foundation out there.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Eye Pencil

Anastasia Beverly Hills is unstoppable. Her eye brow line is one of the best I’ve ever used. She comes out with new and exciting items all the time, and I just can’t get enough of them. Her colors are true to itself. They have an array of colors and they are the best pencils that really define your eyebrows.

Tarte Highlighter

Tarte highlighter has an amazing color that really accentuates your definition in your face without looking like a lightning bug. Many highlighters out there can really make your skin look too bright or isn’t casted correctly in the light. Tarte is the best, in my opinion when it comes to illuminating.

Clinique Lip Stick

I really can’t get enough of these lipsticks. Clinique makes there lipsticks in the best colors and they have almost like a moisturizer built in to them so they don’t give off that matte finish. I really am not a matte lover, and Clinique did well when making these amazing lip colors.

These are my Top 5 products that I use daily. These are items that I truly couldn’t live without and are fabricated to give your skin the love it deserves.

Great Ways To Increase Your Presence on Instagram

Instagram is one blow minding app. It has really developed into a great way for brands and influencers to connect. It is also a gateway to sell just about anything. These days you cant scroll your feed without finding something someone is trying to sell. That being said, it can seem a bit overwhelming and intimidating. I have some great tips on how to improve your social presence.

HASHTAGS

I can’t tell you how important hashtags are when posting. There are many that you need to stay away from due to be over shadowed. These hashtags are a huge no-no when posting. To find out what those hashtags are, there are many websites you can google to find out. The lists are long. Make sure to not use any of those listed hashtags. It doesn’t make your profile look good to Instagram. You can also look up the most popular hashtags to use that could possibly get you on the Explore page. The more you can make the Explore page, the more ways people can find you.

BACKLINKS

Blogging is a fun job, only of you make it fun. If you feel at times that you are doing all you can, and seem like it’s not growing as quickly as you would like, make sure you are staying patient. Everything takes time. Using the correct backlinks in your blog is very important. If you are talking about a brand , or a company and you are posting about them, make sure that you add their business link so people can get back to the business that you are talking about. Back links help so good with helping people find what they need. It is very important that you always use the appropriate backlinks.

ENGAGEMENT

Engaging with other bloggers is critical to your growth. You have to find the right bloggers that are within your niche and communicate with them. Joining into a giveaway or shout out is a huge way to spread your growth .Reaching out to other bloggers for a guest post is a great way to grow your presence on social media too. Commenting on other bloggers pictures will only help your posts. the engagement rate goes up also with the instagram algorithm. It can change constantly, so always be on the lookout for new changes within the social media platforms. It really is great getting to know the same people doing the same job as you. You can always throw ideas off each other, and you will have friends for life.

TAGGING

The best thing to do when posting anything on any of your social media platforms is tagging. Collaborations come in handy this way, especially if your engagement is high. If you are wearing a cute outfit or a cute pair of shoes, tag the brand. They will have an easier time finding you this way. If you are doing a story on your Instagram channel, tag the brand in your stories. It’s crazy how many times I received shout out from a huge brand or influencer because I simply tagged them in my stories or my post. A little goes a long way if you know what I mean. If you are a fashion influencer, and you are some really great platforms such as Reward Style, make sure to always use the appropriate tags when posting.

CONNECTION OF ALL PLATFORMS

Social Media profiles such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and now TIk Tok is very important for your brand. These are the platforms where everyone and anyone can find you. You want to make sure if you have a blog, or domain, or any type of website that is your main page, that all your social medias are linked directly to your page. If someone is reading one of your great posts, they may certainly want to follow you on all other platforms as well. It’s a great idea to have a follow widget in your blog with all your social media icons. They can press it and follow. It’s that easy. WordPress is one of the best platforms for blogs. They are easy to work with and they stay up to date on all their upgrades.

THE USE OF EMOJIS

Emojis are a complicated thing when it comes to Instagram. I feel they are frowned upon by the algorithm, and it really isn’t good engagement protocol. The best bet is to skip the hearts and the emojis and really give a sincere comment. I feel that emoji comments bring down the engagement rating on your feed. I prefer to have words in my comments. Don’t get me wrong, it’s cute when someone leaves an emoji, but for rating your engagement, it really doesn’t help.

The ultimate win when owning blog is keeping yourself patient through the process. It is very important to know that good content is vital to a good social media platform too. Do not copy someone. Be creative and unique. There are so many bloggers sharing the same things, same clthes, same shoes. Open yourself up to new possibilities, and be original. That is what it’s all about. You can also use great websites to utilize your blog better such as the bloggers outreach program.
