REVIEW + OOTD // I Got My Eyes On You

Necklace: c/o Twinkle Deals
Sweater & Jacket: F21   Jeans: PacSun   Boots: Just Fab   Glasses: c/o Firmoo
How funky is this eyeball necklace guys?It's from Twinkle Deals, and I'm keeping it in rotation as one of my go-to jewelry pieces solely because of how quirky and eye-catching it is (haha, see what I did there?). Plus, it's super affordable! Less than $3? Um, yes please.

I wore this outfit a week or so ago when we were experiencing unusual weather consisting of grey skies and chilly winds. Hey, gotta milk the black skinny jeans and leather jackets for all they're worth! I'm trying to remember what summer dressing is like for me. I'm bringing back my bohemian style slowly but surely!

As for life lately, I got my old job back (another barista gig) in town, and I'm already working on picking up more shifts and getting back into the flow. While the time off from both work and school was amazing (I have a trip from Yellowstone I'll need to share soon!), it's time to roll up my sleeves and start saving up money and preparing for next semester! This summer will certainly be filled with adventures and fun though, and I'm happy to keep blogging and share it all with you!

Oh, and real quick, I should complete my review of Twinkle Deals and mention the third and final piece I received from them (you can check out my review and OOTD post on one of their summery tops here). The ear cuff pictured above looks pretty sweet, right? Well...it's not. With a simple flick of your hair and too quick of a turn, it'll fly right off. It's not designed well and is not functional at all. The only thing I could find use for it was as a delicate prop in these photos (which you can check more out in this post).

Thank you all for your continued support and visiting my blog! I know I haven't been replying or commenting as consistently as I used to, and I do apologize for that. I took a short break to focus on more immediate things (moving, catching up with friends, and getting a job), but then it became longer than I intended. Not sure what happened there! I'm easing back into it though, so you should be hearing from me soon.

Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

MUSIC MONDAY // Kopecky

Kelsey Kopecky lends her name to this indie-rock group from Nashville, Tennessee, and the catchy name perfectly correlates to their music. Take a listen to their cheerful, upbeat sound and clap along to songs like "Heartbeat" and "Quarterback."







Hope you're having a wonderful Monday 
Oh, and Happy Memorial Day if you're from the US!

REVIEW & OOTD // Twinkle Deals + KLens Pop

Hello everyone! I'm finally getting back into my blogging game and have been visiting everyone's blog and have slowly started catching up. So sorry for not responding to comments in a while. Life has been non-stop busy, and I can't wait to share what I've been up to! For now, I'm still catching up on long overdue posts reviewing items that have been sent my way.

So today I'm reviewing two brands in one post: K-Lens Pop and Twinkle Deals (I know, aren't they the cutest names?).

First up, the Bunny Color Brown contacts from K-Lens!
Since these were sent from the same company that sponsored the violet lenses I reviewed HERE, I'd have to say they're exactly the same except for the color. In fact, I was amused to find that they match my natural eye color perfectly. So all these did for me was enlarge the appearance of my eyes. In the end, it adds a slightly more feral appearance to my gaze, which is only noticeable if you look extremely close. Below, a comparison photo of one eye normal and one with the contact in. Can you even tell which is which!?

Time to get on to the Twinkle Deals portion of this review. 
In case you hadn't noticed, there's this gorgeous, shoulderless top I'm wearing that's from this company. Man, it is stunning and I am extremely happy to add it to my closet! I ordered it in XL because I'm built like a man and have the shoulders of one. It has an elastic lining at the top, thankfully, so that wasn't an issue. The sleeves are absolutely gorgeous, with flared bell bottom styled ends that are perfect for playing with in the breeze.

It comes with a silky lining underneath that does a decent job at preventing complete transparency. So break out your bandeaus and join the shoulderless trend, ladies! I think it's a wonderful look that perfectly complements summer. Paired with floral crowns and lacy shorts, I'm feeling more summery already.
So to catch you up with why I've been AWOL (besides scheduling posts that have been going up in my absence), this past week has been spent: packing up and moving, visiting family, driving over 400 miles to visit a close friend, running my first 5K (more on that later), and trying to find a job. 
Sheesh, I feel tired just thinking about it...

Anyway, I'm hoping to settle down into a semi-stable routine soon, and that will include blogging and visiting all of your blogs! 

What is your opinion on colored contacts? The shoulderless trend?

Tell me in the comments below!

MUSIC MONDAY // Taylor Swift's Bad Blood




Okay, how many of you have seen this already? I am loving Taylor with red hair and the tough girl posse!
Excuse me while I look up martial arts videos and how much a motorcycle costs.

Haha, hope your Monday just got a better start to it!
I've got a review post coming up that I'm excited to share with you all, so keep an eye out for it this week. I'm finally starting to settle back home, albeit there are still boxes that need to be unpacked and my room is a mess...but I'm getting there!
