Ink Box Temporary Tattoo Review

One of my goals for 2017 is to have more guest posters so that I can introduce y’all to some other amazing bloggers you might not know otherwise. Today we have Rachel from A Bleach Life sharing a super interesting product review! Like me, Rachel has kind of an edgy style, which I’m a total sucker for. I’m so excited for today’s post so let’s get to it! Also don’t forget to show Rachel some love on her blog and social media (she’s @ableachlife everywhere)!

Hi guys! My name is Rachel, from ableachlife.com (come say hi!), and I am taking over Valery’s blog today! As you all know, Valery has some SICK tattoos, and tattoo virgins, like me, can get just a tiny tiny bit jealous of all that art! I have been wanting to get a tattoo for a while now, but I am a very non-committal person, I get bored of things very easily, and am always changing things up. So instead of going out and getting a full blown tattoo and potentially hating it the next month, I picked up this product called Ink Box.

Diversity Chic | Looking Back on 2016

I honestly cannot believe it has been 2 full years since we started the Diversity Chic journey. It has been such a joy showcasing various trends with some of my favorite people. I don’t really know if it has had an effect on anyone outside of our Diversity Chic group, but putting a body positive spin on trends is soooooo important. The world is improving in terms of what is deemed “acceptable” for various body types to wear and I’d like to think we have had the teeniest tiniest part in that. Here’s what Diversity Chic means to us:

Diversity Chic is a collaboration of Dallas bloggers showcasing current fashion trends on a variety of skin tones, hair colors, body types and heights. Each month we will feature a new trend tailored to our personalities and style.

Our focus is to explore the world of fashion in its unique, diverse, and stylish manner – one trend at a time.

January Small Goals

Happy first small goals post of 2017! This officially marks the start of my 2nd year doing small goals and I’m honestly so excited – my small goals last year really helped me stay focused and achieve my goals. This month’s small goals post comes a little late because the first Monday of this month was reserved for the word of the year. If you missed that post, you can check it out here. Otherwise, it’s time to chat about January small goals! Per usual, I’m linking up with the always lovely, Nicole. Make sure to check out her small goals post and while you’re at it, read a few others who linked up! Here’s a look at my December goals:

Lipsense: An Honest Review

I received a Lipsense kit to try to facilitate this review. Per usual, all opinions are my own.

This honest review of Lipsense shows how Lipsense wore throughout the day (even after a workout!) and goes through the pros and cons of Lipsense.I’ll admit it: the first time I heard about Lipsense, I rolled my eyes. The claim of a lipstick that lasts 8 hours, the videos of people rubbing their lips, the photos of wine glasses with no residue…it just seemed like such a gimmick. But I’ll confess another thing….I was curious.

Favorite Looks of 2016

Okay sooo I’m a smidge late on this post BUT I wanted to revisit some of my favorite looks from 2016. This is always an interesting exercise because it’s amazing how much your style can evolve just in a single year. I feel like by the end of 2016, I had really come into my own as far as style goes. I know what I like and I know what speaks to me. Last year I said that my style was maturing a bit and I think that’s even more true this year. Who knows, by the end of 2017 I might be wearing pantsuits! lol no.

Here they are, in chronological order! (Link to the post directly below each photo.)
