Currently Coveting: What's In My Shopping Cart + A Life Update

Wow, it has been one hell of a week. The extreme, contrasting thoughts and emotions I experienced this week were surprising. My romantic relationship came to an end last Sunday, and since then I have felt heart-break, depression, grief, anger and self-doubt. But I've also felt excited, liberated, energetic, confident and most importantly, I now feel blessed that I have an opportunity to prove to myself that the only way I will ever be happy is to find it within myself. I know, I almost just gagged a little bit and rolled my eye, but it's true.  I have ALWAYS looked for validation, acceptance, and love from external sources. It's a habit I still struggle with, but I'm a hell of a lot better at handling my emotions than I was a year ago or even six months ago.

Now that I'm not in a romantic relationship, I'm dedicating more energy to the things I've always loved but have been slacking on recently. I'm going to the gym more, pushing myself more than ever in my dance and pole classes, challenging myself to be more independent, seeing my friends more and having more fun dressing up each day!

Two of my biggest confidence boosters come from giving my all in a dance/pole class or wearing an outfit that makes me feel empowered. Although I am passionate about dancing, fashion is something I interact with 24/7; therefore, it has a higher impact on my life. I've always had a deep connection to fashion and find it invigorating. If you're reading this post, I'm guessing you have some type of connection to the beauty/fashion world too. You most likely believe, like I do, that a fun lipstick shade or cute outfit can help you feel even more amazing about yourself. That's why I'm sharing my recent favorite pieces down below. Some of these items I already have, own something similar or plan on adding it to my wardrobe in a financially responsible manner. I only buy items that "spark joy" in my life now thanks to Marie Kondo. I hope these pieces bring you a little bit of confidence and joy too. Until next time my friend, and thank you so much for spending a little time today to support my site. Your time and love mean the world to me.

Animal Print
Ok, so it's safe to say that I'm obsessed with cheata print and snake skin print. I can't help it. I just woke up one day and needed all of it in my life.

Gearing Up For Spring
I'm OBSESSED with the colors Riviera Blue and pink for spring. You already know I'm going to wear these colors head to toe in a monochromatic looks. Think Fallon-eque outfits from Dynasty. I'm talking all the blazer dresses or blazers with mini skirts you can imagine. Ah!! I'm so excited

Camel Everything
I finally have a camel coat and camel plaid scarf. I feel like a true New Yorker now.

Happy Shopping! Let's pray that spring comes quickly!
