His & Her Spring Looks

I can finally say that I am done with my spring cleaning. I got rid of so many clothes that no longer fit my style. Now that I've made some room in my closet, it's time to update my wardrobe for spring. Last season my wardrobe consisted of greys, blacks, and navys. This season, I am switching it up by diving into color. This spring, my go to colors include anything denim and anything pastel. This goes for both men and women.

For this post, I teamed up with Bonobos, a company that sells better-fitting menswear, to share some of my favorite spring looks and color palettes. Bonobos is the perfect online shopping destination for men who want to look good (and for women who want their men to look good). Below I created several different his and her looks featuring some of my favorite his and her pieces this spring.



The Perfect Thrifted Dress







Isn't it funny how put together you can look in a dress? I'm convinced that dresses are the best clothing item (well, dresses and rompers) because they are so easy to put on. Literally you just throw on a dress and immediately look put together. Dresses have transformed my life as a lazy girl. So for that, I thank you (whoever invented this time-saving master-piece).

I thrifted this cute little dress for $7. I love the fit and the cut-out back. I also scored these gorgeous shoes at a closeout sale for $20. They literally go with everything!

Casual Denim Skirt





You guys, I cannot stress how much I've been loving denim skirts You guys may recognize this skirt from my Valentine's Day Thrifted Oufit post, which I scored for $5. It is the best piece I have bought, because it is so versatile. I can either dress it up or down. In this look, I decided to pair it with a graphic tee I thrifted for $2. I really wanted to play with the pop of colors in the graphic tee by pairing this with my red vans.

Outfit Details:
 * Top - Obey - $2
 * Skirt - Unknown - $5
** Shoes - Vans - $30

Simply Earth Unboxing



I have been on a natural hair, health, beauty, and lifestyle kick for the past couple of years. I believe natural products are the best to use on our hair, on our skin, and in our homes. During my kick I've grown a love for essential oils. So far I have used jojoba oil, grapeseed oil, coconut oil, sweet almond oil, African black castor oil, and avocado oil. I am in love with all of those oils, however I have been wanting to try some more flavorful and versatile oils.

Needless to say, I was more than thrilled when the company Simply Earth contacted me for a collaboration. They sent me their April Essential Oil Recipe Box, in exchange of an honest review of their products.

My Holy Grail Hair Products



For me, the hardest thing about transitioning to natural hair was finding hair products that worked well for my hair. At the beginning of my hair journey I was a HUGE product junkie. I would watch hundreds of YouTube videos about natural hair products and feel the need to purchase every item mentioned. After years of trying different products and combinations, I finally found my holy grail  hair and styling products. Sometimes will I try to experiment with different products and switch up my routine, but I always find myself coming back to these products. They work wonders on my 3c hair.



1. Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle Conditioner
I fell in love with this conditioner the first time I used it. It is moisturizing, it smells good, it causes this really cool tingling sensation, and it is under $5. Some of the ingredients include purified water, tea tree, peppermint oil, and eucalyptus oil. I love it's light texture, which makes it perfect to use as a leave-in conditioner.



 

2. Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk
This product has never failed me. It makes my curls soft, bouncy and defined. It is an extremely moisturizing and affordable (under $10) styling cream. I love that this product is sulfate-free, paraben-free, mineral-oil-free. It also contains great ingredients including deionized water, shea butter, and coconut oil.



3. Tangle Teezer
Brushing my hair has never been easier. This little pink brush has impressed me time and time again when it comes to detangling my hair. I don't even use a comb anymore. I use this to brush my wet hair in the shower, and it removes every tangle and knot in sight.



4. Hair Pick
I feel like my hair isn't complete until I pick it out. When it comes to hair, I think bigger is better. This pick does the job and leaves my hair big and voluminous.
