Weekly Photo Challenge: Fresh


New, Spicy, Fun, Bold, Interesting… some of the many words that come to mind when I think of Fresh.

Me being the girl that I am, There’s just something about getting my nails done that just makes me feel… put together and complete. & Let’s face it, we use our hands everyday; all the time non stop. So why not take pride in how they look!  While many people overlook hand maintenance  because A. Not necessary for them or B. No desire. I on the hand enjoy it!

I haven’t always been this way I must admit. ( Blame it on my career choice) But I see multiple clients a day and must come off “well maintained” . So for me not only is it a must but it’s also a chance to express my personality and creativity. With that being said, nails have kind of turned into my niche and my go to activity to add some sass or freshness if you will .. to my everyday life to kind of spice things up!

Whether it’s bright colors, bold charms or outrageous designs; the statement is yours to make. So say what you want, express yourself and rock it!

& If all else fails… here’s a few choice words from my wise mentor.

If they hate, then let them hate & watch the money pile up ” – Curtis James Jackson III

– Liv

***** So now that you know about my nerdy nail obsession and how it keeps me feeling fresh for days, I’d love to hear about what makes all of you feel the same!

Affordable Fashion Part 1

🙂 So today I figured I would keep it short and sweet.

Being a girl, I feel like wanting to have pretty things and shopping is just in our DNA. ( maybe not for all of us but most. Although I do think that all girls do love these things some just don’t know where to start or find what speaks to them.)

Maybe that explains my excessive online shopping habit and Sephora addiction.

For the past week I’ve been scouting around trying to find the perfect pair of Plus Size Boots that actually fit and some cute staple pieces for work. ( Stay tuned for that Haul Post! )

& I personally have so many favorite stores I love to check out and that got me thinking about what other majestical stores I don’t even know exist! So I thought I would share some of my personal Go to stores!

1. My personal favorite . Forever21 .// Not Only do they have stuff for almost everyone! Young, Male, Female, Plus! But they actually have a lot of affordable  stuff ( I’m usually a clearance shopper ) It’s a Win win in my eyes!!

& the accessories department is one of my favorites! ( especially the rings & hair clips! )

2. It’s Growing on me, Torrid..// I usually come here to look at .s h o e s. and  .a c c e s s o r i e s.  During Holidays I find that they have the best options for Plus Size Costumes and Accessories. I will say shoes wise, order a half-size up! ** They have the best clearance sales so always keep a look out for discount codes before making any final purchases.

Make sure to click around. & I just read an article that they are getting more designers for Plus Sizes as well so keep a look out for that! ** Comment or Tweet me and I can send you a 15$ off coupon for your purchase.

4. My Secret Place, 599Fashion. Here’s the thing, Everything in here is 5.99 OR LESS. Yes you read that right, five dollars and ninety nine cents OR LESS. I like to keep this place in my arsenal, It’s VERY affordable but definitely hit & miss quality wise and style choice wise. I’ve gotten a lot of amazing pieces from this place, lots of my go to cardigans or cute work shirts, great quality. But every now  and then you may get a dud; not so average piece . Think along the lines of D.E.B quality.

**Beware: Clothes go fast on here, so if you see it.. GET IT. If you like it a lot; get two! Learn from my mistakes. They don’t restock! Once It’s gone, no chance!
