Friday Favorites- Obsessions Edition

Happy Friday Friends!

I am so glad it is finally Friday!  How about you? This week has been a trying week for me... can I just say adulting is hard!! I'm so ready to relax and move past this week.  I hope you all have some fun plans for the weekend.  It's suppose to be rainy here but that's perfect relaxing weather so I'm excited about it. 

This week I wanted to share with you my six current obsessions for my Friday Favorites post. 

1.  I'm obsessed with this Enduring lip color from LimeLight.  I have been trying it out all week and it really does last all day! It does not dry out your lips either which I also love about it.  Check out all the colors by clicking HERE and let me know which is your favorite.
Read more about LimeLight on my blog HERE.
2. Velvet T-shirts.  I can not get enough of them. First they are so comfy and simple. Second you can dress them up or down to wear anywhere!  
3. I'm loving the cut out details on shoes too.  I have recently purchased a pair and they go with every outfit.  They are so fun and I will be wearing mine all summer long.  
4.  Ruffles!  I know I have talked about this trend before but I'm seriously in love with it.  I have a one shoulder white top similar to the one below on my list of things to purchase soon.  I also found this adorable pair of sling back mules with a ruffle on them.  I think the ruffle is perfectly placed on these shoes and I really want them too.  
5. Fun clutches make every outfit pop.  I am known for having a fun or funny clutch to carry because it strikes up a conversation wherever you go.  I am always on the lookout for the next best conversation starter.  I linked a few of my new favorites below.  Which one would you carry with you?
6. I can not live without my Sigma flat top kabuki brush for applying my make up.  This brush is one of the best sellers and I know why now!  If you do not own one you should I promise you wont be disappointed. 



Have a great weekend and let me know below what your currently obsessed with.
XOXO,
Love K.Leigh

LuLaRoe Love

Hello Loves! 

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend.  We had absolutely gorgeous weather! I spent my weekend at the baseball field with the family. I had such a great weekend I wish it wasn't over yet. I'm super excited that spring is finally here which means warmer weather and longer days to spend outdoors! 


I love when pieces are versatile and can be worn many ways.  It stretches the dollars spent on the items by being able to wear them multiple ways.  I was super excited to collaborate with LuLaRoe Laure Wolfe.  I received 4 items and some tips and tricks that I will share with you.  I had so much fun styling these pieces.

The first item was the Julia dress.  It's a super fitting dress and I am wearing a size XS.  Besides wearing it as a dress I chose to style it as a tunic and a skirt.  Which you all know from my Dress + Skirts post I love mixing and matching them!

Here I paired the dress with a baby blue blazer and my favorite shoes. I finished off the look by adding a gold necklace and simple black clutch.



I also wore it as a tunic. To get this look I used safety pins on the inside seam. This scrunched the fabric up into a tunic length. I paired the tunic with my black LuLaRoe leggings. OMG, they are so soft and comfy!  I also added a simple collar necklace, denim jacket and booties to complete this look.




This was by far my favorite look! I put this fun, distressed sweatshirt over my Julia dress.  I love how the textures played off each other. I paired these pieces with my black booties and a layered choker.




Next I styled the Irma tunic. I am wearing a size XXS.  I learned this top can be worn 6 ways. Crazy right? You can wear it as the basic tee, skirts, halter top, one shoulder top or a tube top.  I had fun playing around with this piece.  I decided my favorite way to wear it was the one shoulder look.  I dressed this simple tee up with my LuLaRoe black leggings and a statement necklace.



The Long Sarah cardigan was the other piece I styled. I am wearing a size small. I love the texture, print and the fabric of this cardigan.  It's so soft and cozy! I styled this cardigan two ways.

First, I styled it edgy by wearing it with my black leather leggings and lace up tee.  I paired this look with my studded heels.




Next, I wore it with my black fringe dress and booties.  This would be a great look for a date night.  The wind was crazy this day and kept blowing my cardigan out so I felt like super woman during this photo shoot. Ha!

I hope you enjoyed seeing how I styled my LuLaRoe pieces.  Please leave me a comment and let me know which look is your favorite.

Inspire

Hello Loves, 

Today, I want to share with you about this bracelet I received from my friends at Impressions.  The company that created the bracelet is all about "spreading kindness woman to woman!" Which I absolutely love! My favorite part about this blogging community is how women uplift and inspire each other. It's not about competing, but being an inspiration to all in our community.  So I chose "inspire" as the motivational word on my bracelet.  There are many different words you can choose from for your own bracelet.


Now let's talk about how the bracelet works.

To me it is like a cross between a 'Flat Stanley' (from when I was a kid) and a 'pay it forward' at Starbucks.  Has anyone else ever experienced a Flat Stanley? It was a paper doll that was snail mailed around the world and when you received it you took Stanley on an adventure and took a picture of him! After that you would add to his story and mail him on to someone else for his next adventure.  We all know the term 'pay it forward' like when you go to Starbucks and pay for the order of the stranger in the car behind you.  It's a small way to show kindness to someone you don't know.


Each Little Words bracelet comes with a gold charm. On that charm is a tracking number.  So you log on and enter your bracelet's tracking number and your location. This way you can track your bracelet's adventures just like a Flat Stanley (we just have awesome technology now!). Next, you wear your bracelet filled with kindness and when you feel the time is right you pass it on to someone else. It may be a friend in need of some kindness or even a stranger.  They then can log on and enter their location for the bracelet. How cool is that? Watch kindness spread through a simple act!




I have chosen to send my bracelet on a special journey.  Its first stop is to someone who has been my rock lately in this blogging community and full of inspiration! Whenever I get down or discouraged, she motivates me to keep going! I appreciate this person's friendship more than she will ever know!  I hope that one day we meet in person, but until then we will keep inspiring each other. Of course we will always stay up too late texting!

I hope you will follow my bracelet's journey with me! I will keep you updated with a picture once the next person receives it!


I would love to inspire others to start a bracelet within their community! Call my friends at Impressions (1-479-442-2044). They will be happy to help you. Each bracelet is $26.99.   Think about all of the kindness you can spread with one little bracelet.
