BEAUTY: [lollia | shea butter]

Hello my lovelies,

Today I went shopping with a friend and she introduced me to the Lollia products. Let me just tell you, I'm a sucker for cute packaging and cute packaging is definitely what Lollia has.

I wanted to buy more than a few of the their products but for now I decided to just purchase their shea butter lotion in breathe. Not only does it smell good, it also comes in a super cute retro style metal tooth paste container (images above).

Next purchase... Their amazing bubble bath bottles. They'll look so adorable in my bathroom as decor. Ha!

Until next time...

FASHION: [personal style | styling tip #5]

• Tip #5:

Personal style is your own, so own it!
I believe that everyone has their own personal style, you might have it right now, you might grow into it and/or it might even evolve on you later down the line. For most people the hard part is figuring out how to refine their style.

What I love about my friends is that we can buy the same exact item but we would never wear it exactly the same way and pair with the same exact items, that's what you call personal style! You never want to be called a cookie cutter, which means you and everyone else looks exactly alike.

Keep in mind that style in most cases evolves and matures over time, as it should. A 50 year old should not be wearing what a 20 year old wears. But that also doesn't mean that a 50 year old still can't look young a stylish for her age. It's all in how you put things together and what's deemed appropriate at your age.

One of my very favorite quotes is by Yves Saint Laurent- "Fashion fades, Style is eternal". Following every fashion trend out there and/or what the "in" things are, doesn't automatically mean that you have style. To be honest, I don't even think they ever go hand-in-hand. Just like YSL said fashion fades. Someone with style will be able to pick out which trends will/will not work within his/her own personal style and not the other way around.

If you're having a hard time finding your own style, start with the classics/essentials/basics (simple black dress, t-shirts, jeans, etc) and then slowly try adding a few different things here and there, if it'd be a pop of color with shoes or a scarf. Just always keep in mind in whatever you do less is more. And if all else fails, you can never go wrong with the classics.

Sometimes to find your own style you have to go with trial and error but whatever you decide to wear, make sure you wear it with confidence and make it your own. If you're not confident in what you're wearing, take it off and try again, it just means that wasn't your style. You'll eventually get there if you keep trying.

Until next time
