    October 23, 2018

    You would think that someone who poses for and posts pics of themselves everyday is bursting with confidence. But for me, that’s just not the case.

For better or for worse, my thoughts can completely consume me, which is why I try to start each day with a little pep talk in the form of positive affirmations. And I think you should, too! So here’s a list of positive affirmations to put in your back pocket…

  • Comfortable Ankle Boots

    October 17, 2018

    In case you’re new to MVS, let me introduce you to the common theme of this here blog: comfort and style. I think looking your best is important because it does evoke positive emotions – confidence, joy, etc. But I don’t think you should ever have to sacrifice comfort for style. I mean why bother when you can have both?

    Case in point: SAS Shoes.

    October 15, 2018

    Like leopard print, snake print is one of those trends that never fully goes away. But right now, it’s really having a moment. There are the cutest snake print bags, tops and dresses on the market! But when I stumbled upon the dress I’m wearing above specifically, it as love at first sight. I couldn’t walk away from it!

  • Target Clothes Haul [Fall 2018]

    October 12, 2018

    Holy cow, girlfriends! Who’s been to Target lately? I hadn’t been in a while, but when I popped in to buy a book a few days ago I came out with a new fall wardrobe – LOL! They seriously had so many cute pieces. So many that I decided to bump the post I originally had scheduled for today and do a Target clothes haul instead. I just wouldn’t be able to live with myself if I didn’t share my awesome finds – like $35 cashmere scarves and hats… YES, PLEASE!

  • A Promise to Celebrate my 32nd Birthday

    October 10, 2018

    I was born the morning of October 10, 1986. That means that today I’m 32 years young! It’s seriously unbelievable to me, seeing as how I still feel like I’m 21 (and hopefully look like it… 😉 – lol, jk!). But here I am, 32 years in, and I truly don’t feel any angst about this whole aging thing. It’s actually quite the opposite. I feel lucky… blessed even. Lucky to have so far been given 32 years of health, safety, happiness and love. And blessed to have had so many awesome experiences along the way. I must say, I’ve learned A LOT over the past 32 years. But this year specifically has brought me one big takeaway that I think is important to share.

    Are you ready for it? (Yes, that’s another shameless Taylor Swift reference, muahaha!)

  • My Fall Makeup Must Haves

    October 3, 2018

    Recently, I’ve been getting more and more questions about my favorite makeup products, makeup tips, etc. I’ve always been a huge fan of makeup and constantly played with my moms when I was younger. I would legit come home from school, grab her makeup bag and a fashion magazine, and stand in front of the mirror until I nailed a new trend. So I’m not quite sure why I’ve been so hesitant to talk about makeup on here, but I want to change that! Which is why I’ve decided to share my 2018 fall makeup must haves with you all today.
