Saks Fifth Avenue will always hold a spot in the luxury retail world. It's any fashionistas dream to graze each clothing rack and (have enough funds to actually purchase something from each rack). Although the clothing doesn't come cheap, it comes with quality, and a sense of luxury that cannot be found elsewhere. Their staff is there to help you in seconds, and the one must is going up to the show floor. I promise you Christian Louboutin will hold a place in your head after touching and trying on those shoes. Being a sales associate for SaksFifth Avenue OFF 5th, my discount still applies at the full line, but being on a college budget it only got me a Chanel lipstick. But that can do for now 💕
Fashion really does come full circle, and the 90s are back. The choker is back and it's better than ever. Plastic step aside, velvet is taking over. Whether you make your own or buy one, they are inexpensive and very versitle! If you are on a night-out or just running errands, a choker adds the perfect finishing touch.
At first I was wondering why are there puffballs on everything? After seeing them on so many more accesories, I decided to purchase one and try it out for myself. They may seem foreign or childish at first, but they are so fun and stylish! Puffballs come in all shapes and sizes! Try one out on your keys, backpack, bags, etc you name it they go with anything and everything.
Hate the taste of protein shakes or bars? Protein World has a fabulous selection including vanilla and chocolate powder! I chose the SlenderBender as it works with weight loss vs. building muscle quicker.

I was given some items form the Mossimo Supply Co. Festival Collection to preview before it came out in stores! Festival is huge right now as H&M has a a line “H&M Loves Coachella”, Forever 21 has an exclusive line, there is obviously Free People, Misguided, ASOS, etc.
Now, festival time is time to shed your sense of discomfort! Become 100% boho and wear something that you would never wear on a daily basis. Target provided me with a great black romper with buttons down until the waistline. Once the waistline hits there is a great tie to accentuate the waist, and some ruffles at the bottom of the shorts. Loved it! Because I could pair it with a handful of accessories. I wore it with:
The other shirt was a tank in black and white. There is detailing at the top crocheted on in a tribal zig-zag print, and then the rest of the tank flowed down with stripes. This was a fabulous piece to mix and match as it could go with distressed jeans, a corduroy skirt, or high-waited jean shorts or jeans. For this look my model paired it with light wash jeans and some gold shimmer sandals.
There is a limited selection online, but I would really encourage you to go to Target and check out the new Mossimo Supply Co. Festival Collection in stores!
Other great items to pair it with that can be found at Target:
There is a much more glamorous way to store your Oreos than in the plastic wrapping that they came in. While watching the Kardashian's TV series intricate cookie jars would always catch my eye. Khloe takes ownership of the idea, although these jars are in each of the Kardashian's kitchens now.
It is a very simple process!
1. Buy a medium to large sized jar. Target has a wide variety, the one I got was the medium size and was $7.99
2. Buy 2-3 packs of Oreos. If you want to also fill the center of the jar you might want to buy 4
3. Lay the cookies flat around the bottom of the jar
4. Now start to alternate the cookies so that they lay on the intersection point of the cookies below them
5. This will create the layering effect
6. Just continue to stack until the jar is full!
7. You may eat the cookies as often as you want, these are not just for show! They may start to get stale after about 30 days
Plaid can be found in almost anything these days. The spring version is white plaid, and I'm in love! From shirts to scarves, jackets, skirts, and pants, you can get it all. Dress it up or down, trust me this will be one of your favorite items in your wardrobe.
