Life Update

Hey everyone! 

I haven’t posted in so long because I’ve been crazy busy! But I wanted to give you a little update about what I’ve been up to. Besides being at Lush and working there (which is so bomb, product reviews are coming!) I’ve been selling old, loved clothing/shoes/accessories and more on Poshmark! 

Poshmark is a resell website that is SO easy to use, you’ll wonder why you haven’t tried it before. All you do is: 1. List your item, 2. Ship your item (they pay for shipping), and 3. Earn cash! 

Use the code JGVEF when you sign up for a $10 credit right away! There are excellent finds from high end brands like Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, Kate Spade, and more. I can’t stress how easy this website is! Not to mention, resell and shopping resell is a very green practice.  


Be sure to check out my closet as well, I have brands like Free People, TOMS, and LeSportsac in my closet. 
Check back soon for product reviews and other exciting things! I finally got a new memory card for my camera so I can really get down to making quality posts with solid pictures (and maybe videos)! 

Until next time, 



My new (and TOTALLY affordable) bag

I can’t convince myself to spend more than (maybe) $100 on a bag. I beat the crap out of my bags. I take them everywhere, throw all sorts of stuff in them, and they are all definitely well loved by the end of their lives.

With that being said, I don’t sacrifice on style. I practice the art of making my stuff look very expensive but, in reality, ballin’ on a budget (aka BOB).

I picked up this cute small-medium sized double zip cross body bag at Forever 21 yesterday. It was about $22 (plus tax), and I am in love. It’s the perfect size to fit my wallet and even a small notepad. It has zippers on both sides that can be opened, which is awesome when I need to whip out my metro card! There is a small handle as well as the cross body strap, giving me options on how to wear it. I am truly a fan of Forever 21’s bags because I think they do a great job of creating fashion forward accessories for young people BOB and for people who are looking to expand their bag collection but are not ready to make the commitment of a designer bag.

I have to apologize for my weak photo game, I have been crazy busy this week but wanted to be sure I got this post up for you all!

Until next time,


My Favorite Looks: Chanel Couture Spring 2016 Show

Uuuuuuugh, how can I begin to describe how much I LOVE all things Chanel. Yesterday Chanel showed its Spring 2016 Couture collection in the Grand Palais in Paris. The set was a picturesque, serene, and all-things-eco stage that set a very calm vibe for the show. The show certainly offers a discussion about ecologically smart fashion, as repurposed wood chips, recycled paper, and organic woven yarn were all fine details worked into the show.

The models had their hair in a long twist behind their heads which stylist Sam McKnight coined the “Chanel croissant”, and the eye makeup was two strokes of eyeliner which framed the eye.

I could continue to gush but, I’d rather show than tell. Here are some of my favorite looks from the show:

Needless to say, Lagerfeld’s genius shines through in this latest show. Chanel’s classic style, color, and quality shined bright in this show.
