Chic of the Week + 12 Things

Hi guys! Happy Friday! 

I have another Fabletics look to share today! This outfit is one of the comfiest & simple for sure, so it’s great for working out or honestly just lounging around! The top is a pretty peach pastel just in time for spring! The leggings are super warm and soft, so if you live somewhere cold they’d actually be great for layering. 

Since this post is so short, I’ll do a quick 12 Things!

1.) The semester is almost over!! We have about 4 weeks & the amount of stuff I have to do before then is overwhelming.

2.) I’m probably moving at the end of the summer! Excited to finally get a place for myself!

3.) My allergies have been so bad this week! It’s finally spring time in AZ & I’m loving it, but I have to drug myself everyday just to get through. If anyone has any natural ways to help allergies, send them my way.

4.) I’ve been trying new recipes recently & loving it! I have so many Pinterest recipes saved, but never want to put in the effort to actually make something. But now that school will be out soon, I’m hoping my evenings can be filled with cooking instead of homework.

5.) I dyed my hair blonde!! Idk if you can tell in this pic, but my hairstylist did an amazing job blending it to look natural. Next time I really want to go for the blonde of Jaci Marie Smith. She’s the cutest human ever. 

6.) I’m currently reading Michelle Obama’s book Becoming. It’s so interesting & she’s a really great writer.

7.) I’m also watching This is Us for the first time & it has me so emotional! 

8.) Hawaii was amazing & I want to go back. Everyone thinks I live there now because I was posting a bunch of pictures on my trip & I was like, yeah, I WISH. You can read all about my trip here!

9.) I did a quick interview/Q&A with Arizona Foothills magazine! You can read my piece here.

10.) I went to my first hockey game last week! It was very cold & there was a fight, but still a fun experience. 

11.) If you live in AZ go check out Wonderspaces! I was actually in one of their ads for an art display & I went to the preview night & there were so many interesting art installations! There were a couple of virtual reality exhibits & it was sooo crazy.

12.) I have to go study for a marketing test now so byyyeee.

Chic of the Week + 12 Things

Happy Friday!

I’ve been off my game lately in terms of blogging! School is taking all my time and energy lol but I’m working on having a daily blogging schedule so I can keep up.

This week’s outfit of the week is one of my favorites! I wore it when I went to The Nutcracker, but I’ve also been able to wear it to work. The dress is actually thrifted, but the style is so in & easy to pair with a sweater & boots in the cooler months. The leather jacket is from sooo long ago! I remember in high school I wanted one so bad because they were super cool. I’ve had a hard time figuring out what to pair it with because I’ve always seen leather jackets as “edgy” haha & that’s not my style! But with this dress it’s cute & chic! The shoes are my most worn pair of shoes ever! If you buy slip-ons, there is no going back. 

A quick 12 THINGS because it’s been a minute! 

1.) I’m finally 21!! I had the best birthday celebration last weekend & I can’t wait to buy wine whenever I want haha

2.) I got an espresso machine for Christmas!! Seriously the best thing ever. Now I only need three coffees a day instead of five!

3.) I only have 3 semesters of college left! 

4.) I am doing a super exciting campaign with… Fabletics!! I can’t wait to share the looks they sent me. SO cute. 

5.) I’m also doing a couple other campaigns currently! I am so grateful & excited to be working with all of these brands, but I gotta tell you, deadlines on deadlines! It never ends. 

6.) I’ve started meditating every morning & it is the best thing I’ve done for myself! The app is called Simple Habit, & there are a ton of free meditations on there. I never thought I was one for meditation because I am constantly thinking & go, go, go, but that’s why it’s been so great! It forces me to slow down & take time for myself, even if it’s just 5 minutes. 

7.) I got a fishy for my birthday! His name is Francisco. He’s a blue beta & I’m already so attached. I might be biased, but I think he’s the cutest fish ever. 

8.) I found the best self tanner! It’s St. Tropez tanning mousse. I saw all these bloggers & YouTubers trying it & I was desperate. Kinda pricey, but if you’re anything like me, it will be worth it because you’ll go from a 3 to a generous 7 with the swipe of a mitt hahah

9.) I’m watching The Bachelor this season & wow. I’m obsessed with these random girls falling in love with one guy. It’s so funny. Quality television. 

10.) I’m almost done with Grey’s Anatomy! I’ve seriously been watching it since about May hahah I’m going to watch You when I’m done because I’ve heard it’s crazy.

11.) I finally read the book You are a Badass. It was sooo good! The kind of book that made me want to bookmark every page because everything was so motivational.

12.) I am going to Hawaii for spring break!! I am so excited! Ever since going last summer I’ve been itching to go again. One of my favorite places for sure.

Chic of the Week + 12 Things

Hi guys! Happy November!!

This week’s outfit of the week is one of my favorite pieces in my closet. I got it at Target (SURPRISE) for work, but have ended up wearing it to class, events, night out… what can an LBD not do?? The shoes are my famous Tuccis lol so basically my whole outfit is from Target, but I don’t think anyone is surprised by that. 

A little 12 Things since it’s a new month & this post is so short…

1.) It’s finally cooling off in Phoenix. YAY!

2.) I went to the library last week & got a library card for the first time since I was little. It’s been my goal to read more because I’m just really trying to be a more zen person & there are so many good books out there! I used to love reading as a kid, so I’m gonna make an effort to read instead of Netflix all the time. 

3.) I carved my first pumpkin ever this year! I made a kitty. You can find the post here. 

4.) This year for Halloween I was a trophy wife & I wore a fake ring & yet so many people thought it was real hahaha yeah I’m NOT engaged. 

5.) I tried aerial yoga for the first time a month ago! It was so fun, but takes lots of coordination. 

6.)  I also went to my first NFL game a couple of months ago. It was so fun!! Football is actually my favorite sport to watch & I got to see my favorite team play. (Go Seahawks!) They won. 🙂

7.) It is officially Christmas season. Don’t hate, just turn on Christmas music & be happy. 

8.) The one thing I really, really want for Christmas is an espresso machine. Because I am not afraid to admit that caffeine has lost it’s affect, so we are moving onto bigger drugs – shots of espresso.

9.) I’m going to visit my bestie up north next weekend & to say I’m excited is an understatement! I haven’t seen her in so long & it’s actually cold where she is so I’m just excited to wear a coat & be cute.

10.) I turn 21 in January!! It doesn’t seem real honestly. I feel 12. 

11.) Yesterday was World Vegan Day, meaning it’s been a year since I decided to go vegan! I am planning on writing a post all about it, but it has been one of the best things I’ve done for myself. 

12.) I’m currently listening to Justin Bieber’s Christmas album, baking pumpkin seeds, & drinking pumpkin spice. Life is good.

Chic of the Week

Omigosh guys.

It’s been sooo long since I’ve sat down to write! I decided to take some time off because I was going through something in my personal life & traveling & packing to move. I only want to write quality content, so I’m back & ready to take time to write again.

I decided to do a “12 Things” along with my Chic of the Week, to fill you guys in on my life. So much has happened in the past month, it’s WILD. 

First, outfit details!! This dress is actually thrifted from Buffalo Exchange. It can be easily dressed up or down. For example, I’m wearing it with sneakers in this picture, but I’ve also worn it to work with heels! It’s also a wrap dress, so super trendy. I’ve linked a similar one in the “Shop this Look” section. The shoes are my go-to white sneakers. Linked below as always! 

Now, for the TEA. 

1.) I’m a junior in college!! I seriously can’t believe it. Time has gone by so fast & I never want it to end. I start classes on Monday & I’m not ready!! 

2.) I joined a blogger Instagram group earlier this summer & have made so many online friends because of it! I love the Internet & how it brings people together 🙂 

3.) I moved into my new apartment a week ago! I’m living with my best friend from high school & her friend. I think we’re going to have so much fun together! 

4.) I got blonde highlights in my hair! I really like it so far. At first I was like, what did I just do, but it’s already grown on me & I really like it! I wanted to do balayage, but decided to start slow to see if I like it, so we’ll see. 

5.) I also got my hair cut & I think it’s the shortest it’s ever been, but it’s CUTE. Why did no one tell me I look better with short hair? 

6.) My trip to Canada was AMAZING. I plan to do a travel post with all the things to see & do. It is such a beautiful (& cold) country.

7.) I went to Seattle for the second time this summer & I fell in love with it all over again. I just love the pacific northwest, but it is such a cool city. I can see myself there some day…

8.) I got a new planner from Target! The only reason I like going back to school is the excuse to buy a new, cute planner & organize my life. I can pretend like I have everything together. 

9.) I finally found the career for me! In high school, I loved student council, & got so excited to plan school events & organize assemblies, & I remember thinking I wanted a job where I got to do the same things. Well, yesterday at work I ended up painting posters for an event we’re having next week, which is all I used to do in stuco…

10.) I have really been enjoying podcasts lately! I might do a post with some of my favorites, but for now, I love “What We Said” by blogger Jaci Smith & her friend! 

11.) My boyfriend of 3 years & I broke up. That is the reason I stopped writing. I was, & still am, confused & sad, so the last thing I felt like doing was writing. Might do a post later, but I’m not even sure what I would say. I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I keep telling myself all of this is for a reason 🙂 

12.) I spilt coffee ALL OVER my new white shirt & white yoga pants this morning. Great start to my weekend!!

12 Things

Hello guys!!

Today’s post is going to be a quick 12 Things, to tell you guys about my summer so far & my whereabouts. The last time I did one of these was the end of the school year I think, so it’s time for an update! 

1.) I am for sure going to Canada this summer!! We are going to Vancouver & Victoria, so if you’ve ever been, please send recommendations for things to do/see. 

2.) I LOVE my new job/internship. It’s literally the best job ever. The people are amazing, the cause is amazing, the work is amazing. I’ll probably talk about it a ton, so sorry in advance! Just super passionate 🙂 

3.) I’ve been really into country music lately! I grew up listening to it because I lived in a town where everyone liked it, but I go through phases. My first concert was actually Tim McGraw!

4.) I just got back from a staycation, & it was rainy the whole time, but still a good time with my family & a nice break from life 🙂 

5.) Speaking of rain, it’s monsoon season here in Arizona!! For those of you that don’t know, that means rain & clouds, aka my fav weather! 

6.) For the first time ever, I made my own dentist appointment today. Growing up is horrible.

7.) I just started Riverdale on Netflix!! Seems like the typical high school flick, but I love those kinda shows. Everyone raves about it so we’ll see!

8.) I bought a Victoria’s Secret robe this weekend & I’ve been wanting one forever & it is satin & soft so I think I am never going to take it off. 

9.)  I am slowly transitioning into sustainable living, & by that I mean, not using plastics & horrible things for the environment as much!! It’s so important & I hope soon everyone catches on to that.

10.) I was THIS close to buying a cat last weekend. Then I decided now is not the time. Cute Pinterest kitties will have to do for now:/

11.) I counted & school starts in like 8 weeks & I. am. not. ready. 🙂

12.) It’s currently 9:40 p.m. on Sunday night & my bedtime is 10 p.m. (get your 8 hours!!) so I am going to say byeee!

with love,

jazz

Chic of the Week

Happy Friday! 

Today’s outfit is actually courtesy of my mommy!! When I moved out for college, she moved some of her stuff into my closet & so when I came home & saw this dress, I had to have it!! It’s crazy how stuff comes back in style! I can’t tell you details on this exact dress, but long floral dresses & jumpsuits are in this season, so go snag one!

I know this is a short post, so I decided to add “12 Things”. I’ve thought about doing it once a month, just to keep you guys updated on my life. So here goes… 

1.) Only 3 more weeks of school left!! I am so excited for summer because…

2.) I have a lot of exciting travel plans! I don’t want to say anything yet because nothing is for sure, for sure, but it’s about a 98% chance I’m going to some pretty cool places. 

3.) I also got an internship for this summer & fall! My school requires us to do internships for credit (do other schools too??) & so I’m excited to get that going because…

4.) I’m almost halfway through college! When this semester is over, I will only have two years left. I’m not sure how I feel about that. 

5.) I got my first OFFICIAL blogger mail from Chic Wish List which has jewelry, clothing & chic purses. I especially like their jewelry, so you will see a post soon. 

6.) I mentioned this before, but I recently purchased Aspyn Ovard’s presets for my blog & Instagram! (Make sure to follow along here.) I already love how they make my feed look.

7.) My mom told me that my name was almost Aspyn, spelled the same exact way! She & my dad love the aspen trees of Colorado, so that’s where the inspiration came from 🙂 

8.) I’m thinking about switching over my blog to be self hosted. I’m coming upon the year anniversary of starting this blog, so I’m ready to make improvements!

9.) I want to get my hair cut again before summer, & I’m thinking about getting highlights. YAY or NAY? Please help!! 

10.) I have finally watched Friends all the way through & it’s so good! I am so attached to the characters. I’ve been told I’m most like Rachel & she’s my fav character! 

11.) I bought a new house plant that isn’t a succulent & I feel like it’s going to die & I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong! I water it & keep it in the sun for 4-6 hours per the directions, but it doesn’t look like it’s thriving. So any plant people, please help me. 

12.) I am watching The Office & it was just the fake fire scene & I’m dying laughing. Best scene in TV history ever.
