Outfit of The Day: January 19, 2018

Hello and happy Tuesday!

Today I have another outfit of the day or OOTD to show you! Just like last time this one is also going to be a gym version attire.

So to begin I decided to curl my hair for the pictures, but as soon as I get to the gym these curls are sadly going up into a bun.

I am wearing this red pull over. Its thin enough to workout in and it sort of has that distressed look which I like.

I am wearing some black tights from the brand BCG, which if you had read my previous OOTD post you would know its one of my favorite brands because of how affordable it is.

I am also wearing my favorite Nike shoes these have the rose gold/metallicy Nike symbol, which I think are so cute!

I also had my LG wireless headphones, but I did not get a picture of them. I absolutely love listening to music when I workout and I am not a huge fan of headphones with wires hence my wireless headphones. Lol

Lastly I am wearing my Fitbit Alta, which I love. I am obsessed with counting my steps and seeing how many steps I can put in a day!

Well I hope you enjoyed reading my OOTD and I hope you make the rest of this week a great one!

What I got for Christmas!

Hello and happy Monday!

I hope everyone started the week on a good note!

I know Christmas is over and has been over for about two weeks already, but I wanted to show you what I got for Christmas!

So let’s begin!

I am a huge Starbucks fan. I practically spend my whole time there, whether I am in school or during the break. Most of my family knows this by now, so I received a Starbucks gift card from one of my aunts, which I already used.

I received this cute Christmas wine glass from one of my cousins. I put it to use once I received it. Lol.

I also received this awesome ColourPop Palette, which I plan on doing a review on! Fingers crossed!

I received this cute Nautica pajama set from my boyfriend’s mom. It’s a light baby blue color with tons of snowflakes. Perfect for the winter! They are so comfy and I’m a huge fan of pajamas sets!

I also received one of my favorite body sprays from my little sister! Its the perfect size since I usually like carrying body mists in my purse for emergencies! It was a gift bundle which came with a body spray and a hand cream!

From my parents I received a two hundred dollar gift card from Academy Sports + Outdoors. With that I was able to purchase a good amount of clothes! I mostly bought workout clothes, because I was in need of new gym attire.

I love the brand BCG, because their clothes is super affordable and comfortable. I got this cute BCG gray workout shirt. I believe I purchased this item for $12.99. I also purchased some black tights, which I actually wrote about in my last OOTD blog post. The last BCG item I purchased was this gray sports bra. I have never purchased their bras before and I was so surprised when I first used it. Definitely my new favorite bra.

I am a huge shoe lover of course, so I had to purchase some shoes! I was able to purchase two gorgeous pairs of shoes!

I purchased these light gray with the metallic Nike symbol. I had actually seen these shoes when I was out of town, but they sadly did not have my shoe size. I had to wait till I got home to purchase them.

Last but not least these gorgeous shoes! I had been wanting some white converse for the longest time. I was always so afraid of purchasing white shoes, because of the fact that they get dirty easily. I finally decided to go for it and bought them, and I am so glad I purchased them! They are my favorite shoes at the moment.

So that is it for what I got for Christmas. I hope you enjoyed reading, and like always, make this week a great week!

OOTD | Gym Outfit

Hello and happy Wednesday!

Today I wanted to quickly show you one of my outfits for the gym.

For todays gym session I have my favorite Columbia jacket. I feel like this jacket is a little too thick to workout out in, so I usually take it off once I get to the gym.

I also have one of my favorite gray Nike Dri-fit long sleeve. I purchased this item at Academy Sports + Outdoors for about $50. I love this item because it fits well and is so comfy!

I love listening to music while working out, so I use my LG wireless headphones. I received these as a Christmas gift last year and I use them every time I workout. I love them because I’m the type of person who hates using headphones especially when the cords get in the way. I feel like its just an accident waiting to happen, especially when doing cardio!

I also have my Fitbit Alta on, which is awesome cause I’m able to track my steps, which I enjoy doing! It helps me stay active and it just looks cool!

I have some black BCG tights on. Their tights are my absolute favorite because they are super affordable and look like every other black tights out there without breaking your wallet. I purchased these for $12.99, which is an awesome deal if you ask me!

Last but not least I have my black Nike Pegasus shoes that I have owned for over two years!

I hope you enjoyed reading this quick OOTD and have a great day!

Mini Thrift Store Haul!

Day 4

Before I met my boyfriend’s mom, I use to never shop at thrift stores. I’m not sure why, but now I love shopping at them!

I recently went shopping at the Goodwill, and I found some amazing things. I wanted to share my thrift store finds!

I love anything that has to do with Nike, so after searching the cap section I was fortunate enough to find a Nike cap. It was a bit dusty, but with a good wash it is now as good as new! The original price could be anywhere from $18.00-$25.00. I purchased the cap for $1.50, which is pretty much a steal for such an awesome brand!

I have been wanting to find the exact same ones, but this time in a creme color! The brand is Charter Club and the original price for these is around $60.00! I was so lucky to have purchased them for only $6.00!

My all time favorite thrift-store find was a beautiful black trench coat by New York & Co. This coat is so beautiful, and I can’t wait to use it this fall/winter! The original tag price for this coat is around $75.00! With a little looking, I ended up purchasing this beauty for only $12.00!

It’s tempting to resort to shopping for name-brand clothing at high end shops. But I highly recommend for all my readers to visit a thrift-store near you, and just take a few minutes to look around. You’d be surprised (even shocked!) at the pieces of clothing you can find, all for a fraction of the original price. So what are waiting for? Get shopping!
