Happy Monday darlings! I hope everyone is staying warm in this winter weather! Over the weekend I kind of came to a realization about myself. I'm a little rough around the edges. I guess you could say that's what gives me character and uniqueness, and believe me, I'm well aware of that. I'm always having to remind people that I'm different than most ladies my age. I don't fall into the many trends that are out there and have a stronger connection to my faith and soul. I feel almost like a modern age hippie. I'm more focused on creating and releasing positive energy and making sure those who are around me know I love and care for them. But with that said, I'm also turning 23 next month and feel that I need to transition from plain Jane to a stylish, feminine young woman. So, I'm challenging myself to revamp myself and become the amazing woman I'm destined to be, from the inside out!
Take a look at some of the finds that I believe will help me gracefully embrace my feminine side...because I can't lay around in sweats and top knots for the rest of my life!

HAIR : Half Up Crown Braid (via Missy Sue)
I normally keep my hair in a middle part and bone straight or a top knot/chignon. Wearing my hair like that everyday can get pretty boring, so later in the week I plan on trying the casual, yet feminine half up crown braid.
BODY: Coffe & Sugar Body Scrub (via Freutcake)
Even though I'm only in my early twenties, now is the perfect time to start taking steps to help improve and preserve my skin. Throughout my junior high, high school, and even a few of my college years, I really struggled with acne (and it's scarring), dry skin, and other imperfections. As of recently, I've really tried to take strides in changing how I treat my body-- specifically exfoliating. Coffee is known to help with cellulite, and even though I'm blessed to not have any quite yet, I plan to take every precaution to keep it that way! Plus, this winter weather isn't doing much for my skin. I'm in serious need of some type of exfoliant!
STYLE: Lacy Intimates & Chunky Sweaters
I've had a few days when I felt really good just because I wore my fancy underwear that day. Undies can definitely make you feel good. I only have a few pairs of lacy undies, but I definitely plan to invest in my underwear draw a bit more in the near future!
And even though I'm getting in touch with my feminine side a bit more doesn't mean I can't enjoy a good chunky, cable knot sweater as well. Lacy bralettes + chunky knit sweaters = perfect combination.
FITNESS: Nike Roshe Run
Look ladies, guys aren't the only ones who get to have fun with their gym sneakers. These grey and neon green Nike Roshe Run sneakers will definitely be finding their way onto my feet very, very soon. I mean, how could I not want to plank, squat, and run in these sneakers?! Plus, the better I look in the gym, the better I feel! And believe me, starting today, I'm going to get my body fit and toned!
I've always been super particular about my eyes. When I first got contacts, it took my nearly an hour to put them on at the doctor's office. To this day, I still can't put eye drops in my eyes. So eyeline...eh, not really my thing. But a few years back, I picked up a liquid liner from Rite-Aid, found a pin about it, and gave myself my first (and decent I might add) winged liner. I don't waer much make up as it is, but I think I could easily incorporate a brown liner and nude lip into my everyday routine. Baby steps, people. Baby steps.
So give your Monday a feminine touch by adding a simple winged eye into your make up routine or do something new with your tresses. Have a great day!
