Style Steal: Disney Princess Belle

It’s Monday(sad face) but that means a new “Let’s Look Like”!! I made a poll on twitter between 3 different disney princesses and you guys voted for a Belle Look-Book. This look is super affordable, under $30 a piece, and perfect for summer parties with the girls(or other princesses😉).
As always, I’ll include a main piece(dress, top, etc), shoes, acessories, and all of the item details and prices below.
Let’s Get Started!
                                  

The Dress

Belle’s yellow gown is ICONIC so I just had to chanel it in this look. I found this super cute off the shoulder dress in a perfect shade for summer right now. Mustard Yellow is very in, and complements well with most skin tones!
Belle’s best look IMO…

The Shoes

 

Red Rose Sandals(H&M)

Belle’s feet are pretty hidden during the movie, but I had to include this adorable red sandals. I mean they have ROSES on them guys. Perfect for Belle’s Aesthetic and I’m sure Adam would approve.

Accessories

Rose Bracelet(Etsy)

Belle’s jewelry isn’t very distinct but I found this bracelet and thought it matched the aesthetic well…and I always like to include some type of accessory in these posts!

Ok guys, that’s it for the belle look book…I hope you guys enjoyed today’s post and I’ll see you on wednesday:)

So grab a cup of coffee(or a glass of wine) and let’s catch up:

🎶 Music 🎶I am a huge fan of Spotify and something I like to do every now and then is to create a Spotify playlist inspired by a season, mood, or even a specific person(celebrity, tv character, etc). Music is something that’s always inspired me. Making and finding these playlists created by others has helped me keep my creative juices flowing… so I thought I’d share some of my favorites with you.

Playlists by me:

Morning Coffee Playlist( Perfect for productive mornings, and 🧘‍♀️)

Playlists created by others:

Songs To Break The Glass Ceiling To( I love listening to this while working on blog posts, getting homework done, and cleaning💃🏽)

Law of Attraction ✨I plan on making a full post on my thoughts on The Law of Attraction, but it’s something I have been reading and learning about over the past couple of weeks! Basically it’,s a mindset that allows you to accomplish something if you set goals and start acting like you already have accomplished what you dream of doing.

Here are some resources just in case you’re interested in learning more:

Pink Lace Kimono:

Lace Cardigan ( I got the pinkish coral color for $8 at my Target👏🏻)

*Also: Am I finally getting into my 20’s when I get more excited about my feet not hurting rather than the color?😂

5 Tips to Clear Acne Prone and Oily Skin

Hey Babes!

Although I can’t claim to have “perfect skin”(who does?), After years of experimenting with different products, I’ve created a regime for myself that works for me! If you struggle with oily skin and acne I have 5 tips that have helped me clear my skin over the past couple of years!

Ok, Who’s ready for clear skin???

Tip # 1: Use a Sulfate Free Face Wash

This step isn’t really optional for me, because I’m allergic to sulfates, but trust me nixing them from your routine will be SO beneficial. Sulfates are harsh on your skin, and some studies have shown that they can even make your acne worse(HUGE BUMMER).

I love Garnier’s Sulfate Free Cleanser- It takes off all of my makeup, and leaves my skin feeling super soft and fresh!

Sulfate Free Cleanser:

Pro-Tip: Use a cleansing brush to apply your face wash, sometimes using just your hands can make your skin oily, and also add yucky bacteria to your skin. I use my Vivitar Cleansing brush in the morning and night and my skin has gotten so much clearer! The brush is also pink and sparky so I feel like Elle Woods whenever I wash my face- which is always a plus.

Tip # 2: Use That Sunscreen Girl!!!

I never use to think about sunscreen unless it was time to go to the beach, but its super important! I had a chat with my dermatologist and she said that going without sunscreen(even when it’s not hot) can also damage your skin(OUCH). Make sure to use an oil-free moisturizer after washing(especially if you have oily skin like moi).

Tip # 3: Drink Water

Ok, this one may seem a little obvious- but its really important! Drinking tons of water can not only help clear your skin but also improve other aspects of your health as well! If you find it daunting to drink your recommended dose of h20 every day, just buy a cute water bottle and let that be your inspiration to be more accountable!

Here’s a link to the one I use(it’s bright pink of course):

Tip # 4: Invest In an Acne Medication That Works For You

You guys might be rolling your eyes after reading this. I totally get it- I’ve tried Proactiv, and all the other acne medications out there. It can be totally frustrating and trust me I understand. Although you may want to quit after a medication fails you yet again,  KEEP TRYING. You can have beautiful skin, you just need to keep doing your research! After dropping another medication, my sister introduced me to Curology. Guys, I’ve been LOVING it. If you don’t know what Curology is, I’ll link it down below but basically, it’s this company that has you take screening quiz and personalizes your skin care regime for you. I currently have the free trial, so I’ll know how I feel about it at the end of the month- but I am already seeing results after one week!

I’m not sponsored by Curlogy, but if you would like to check it out use the link below:)

Tip #5 Cut Down On Junk Food

My last tip is more of a lifestyle suggestion, but it’s still really important. Your skin emulates what’s going on in your body…so if you are filling your body with a bunch of junk food all the time- your skin isn’t going to be a happy camper:( This doesn’t mean you can never get chicken nuggets from Chick Fil A again, but it does mean you should limit how many times you see that super nice cashier(guilty). As someone who is addicted to sweets, I find trying healthy snack alternatives to be super helpful!

Here are some of the favorites:

Brookside Chocolate covered Acai Blueberries

Clementines

Apples with Peanut Butter

Boom Chicka Pop Sea Salt Popcorn

Alrighty, guys! I hope you found my tips to be helpful… and if you are struggling with Acne, I hope some of these tips work for you! Make sure to DM me/comment down below what your skin care hacks are!

Love,

Jasmine

Woah It’s Wednesday?!: Skincare, New Job, Working Out

Hello Babes!

I have been planning posts for you guys(get excited) and I’m finally ready to share my newest segment with you all! Every Wednesday, you will receive a “Weekly Wrap-up” from me with updates from my personal life, things I’ve been loving, Crazy work stories…pretty much anything goes! I also am using this as a chance to get to know my followers…so make sure to DM me on my social media links so we can chat about our weeks together!  I’m naming this series “Woah it’s Wednesday!?”, so make sure to look for that popping up in your inbox!

So grab a cup of coffee(or your favorite drink) and I’ll share with you the break down on my week so far:

Skincare

This past weekend I finally went out and treated myself to some new skincare products. As a #broke college student I have sacrificed this kind of stuff in the past, but after watching some youtube videos on Self Care- I realized you really can’t skimp on this kind of stuff. I’ll link everything I purchased below so you can check it out…but the important thing is that you don’t need a ton of dough to take care of yourself(and especially your skin!). Most(if not all) the items linked below are under $20, and totally affordable for gals on a budget. I plan on writing a full post on my skincare routine so I’ll definitely give a full list of products and talk about them in more depth then.

New Job

I recently started working a retail job, and although the gif above perfectly sums up the bad days- I actually really enjoy what I do! This past Monday was my first time working the cash register and after some practice, I think I’m getting the hang of it. I may have made one of two customers leave with safety tags still on their clothes- but hey it was my first day after all🤷🏽‍♀️

Working Out

I am no Richard Simmons, but I actually have developed a pretty decent work out routine that I’ve been sticking too! In the past, I used to restrict myself to a specific plan or “calendar” but this only made me feel bad about myself if I strayed away and missed a couple of days. Since I love doing Yoga and Pilates, I decided to warm up in the morning with a yoga routine, do a 15-minute pilates and wrap up with a quick yoga cool down. If you guys would like a full post on exactly what I do(including videos and the YouTubers I follow) make sure to comment down below and let me know!

Ok, guys, that’s it for today’s update! I hope you guys enjoyed catching up with me and be sure to follow me on my social media links(you can find them at the top of my blog in the right corner!) and chat with me!

Love,

Jasmine

My Favorite Outfits from The Royal Wedding

Hello Babes!

I don’t know about you guys…but my eyes were glued to the tv screen for Meghan and Harry’s Wedding! Everyone looked amazing, and I had to share my favorites with you all.

So without further ado, here are my favorite outfits spotted at the Royal Wedding!

Amal and George Clooney

Amal always looks stunning in anything she wears, and today’s outfit was no exception. She sported a mustard yellow(hot color this summer) Stella McCartney dress. George sported a crisp grey suit, a classic nonetheless, but these lovebirds looked amazing together as always

Priyanka Chopra and Abigail Spencer

These trailblazers looked absolutely fabulous in their gowns. Priyanka, a fan favorite on Quantico wore a gorgeous pale lavendar 2 piece set by Vivienne Westwood. Abigail Spencer, a fellow co-star on Suits, sported a youthful polka dotted frock by Alessandra Rich. I love the choice of color in both dresses…pastels are very in now and each outfit screams springtime.

Carey Mulligan and Marcus Mumford

Does Daisy, I mean Carey Mulligan, ever not look fabulous?! The Great Gatsby star sported a beautiful, ankle length gown by Erdem. Her Husband Marcus Mumford joined her in a classic black suit, appropriate for the occassion. 

Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian

Serena always exudes confidence whenever she enters a room, and her outfit for the royal wedding was no exception. The sports phenemenon wore an amazing blush Versace gown, and was accompanied by her equally classy husband Alexis Ohanian wearing yet another dapper black suit. What’s perhaps the most iconic of her outfit, has to be her amazing headpiece. Hats, and headpieces are one of the most important parts of british fashion, and Serena’s matched her outfit exquisitely.

The Bride Herself, Meghan Markle

Last, but certainly not least, we have to talk about Meghan Markle’s wedding dress! Meghan opted for a simple white gown that, listen to this, was designed by Givenchy’s first female designer…talk about girl power!! I absolutely adored Meghan’s classic approached, and how she opted for longer sleeves opposed to the traditional capped ones. Her Tiara, was also a gift from the Queen herself

(I’m not crying you’re crying)

but like he’s definitely crying:

Ok guys, that’s it for my favorites! I hope you enjoyed today’s post, and if anybody needs me, I’ll be sobbing and watching princess movie re-runs on my couch.

xoxo,

Jasmine

How to Crush Your Next Interview

Hello Babes!

After finishing 3 in the past week, I think I have gathered some advice for anyone feeling nervous about interviewing! Two of my interviews were group interviews, and the last one was a one on one. I personally prefer one on one interviews, but a lot of interviews these days tend to be group because of the number of applicants who apply. 

Here are my best tips for sounding confident and professional for your next interview:

Tackling the Group Interview

Most companies will let you know if you will be interviewing with other applicants, but sometimes you might just get there and find out on the spot(like me). In this case, you have to engage and ask questions just as much as the other applicants! This means asking thought-provoking questions, making your voice heard amongst the sea of fresh faces.

Pro tip #1: Sit up straight

This might sound obvious, but make sure your posture is professional and open to your interviewer! Make eye contact, and keep your expressions neutral. Also, make sure to look and interact with the other applicants…no one likes an applicant that spends time talking about herself/himself and doesn’t care about what other people are saying!

Pay Attention to What You’re Wearing

Depending on what job you are applying for, your outfit can make or break your first impression with your potential employer. For example, I interviewed for clothing stores, so I made sure my outfits were brand free and professional. Each job has its different requirements!

Pro tip #2: Cater to your brand

If you are applying for a job who’s brand screams the 70’s…try to incorporate some bell sleeves or paisley prints in your outfit. If they are obviously 90’s baby’s at heart- this is your chance to break out the platforms and metallics! Whatever you decide make sure you still look professional for your employer. 

Get There Early(or at least 15 minutes early)

No one likes awaiting a late candidate… so make sure you are in the general vicinity at least 15 minutes before your interview starts! Sometimes your potential employer may even take you in early- it all depends on the situation!

Eat Before You Go

I don’t know about you guys, but I really can’t focus if I haven’t eaten anything. No matter what time your interview is…make sure you have a complete meal before you leave! Make sure to avoid breath killers like garlic, and teeth stainers like wine before you start snacking.

Pro Tip #3: Keep Snacks in your bag

Speaking of snacks…I like to keep 1-2 in my bag at all times. This way if you don’t have time to eat before you leave, you can munch on a granola bar or dried fruit while you wait for your turn!

Ok, guys, those are my best tips to get you through your next interview! I hope you guys found the tips helpful and make sure to tune in tonight for the next episode of my podcast! I will be talking about my interview experience and may just have some special guests as well. 

xoxo

Jasmine
