One of my favorite fall staples is a good pair of ripped, black jeans. A couple weeks ago, I was shopping online (lol what’s new?), and stumbled upon RIPPED LEGGINGS. Comfort and Cute is my favorite combination, especially for fall. I paired them with a white sweater and some snake print booties for a nice, edgy look!
I have noticed a lot of people tend to despise Valentine’s Day and this makes me sad. Why? Because Valentine’s Day is not just for significant others. It is about love. And love is one of the greatest gifts that we can give and receive in this world, and I think that each one of us has a person out there who loves us and we love them. Whether it’s a family member, a significant other, or just your very best friend, we all have a reason to celebrate love if we aren’t blind to it. And if none of those fall into place for you, there’s always Jesus who shares the best love of all! Don’t be sad or depressed this V-Day .. instead, take a close look at those around you and I’ll bet you find a special reason to celebrate. 🙂
With that said, today I wanted to share my first Valentine’s look of the season because it’s officially February, and the month of all things pink and red is pulling on my heartstrings. This outfit is one that I literally threw together in less than five minutes. The best thing about this look is that it’s one of those effortless outfits where you can just fluff your hair up and freshen up your lipstick and then you are ready to go for the night.
I’ve been really into bright colors lately because I just think they can be challenging (yet fun) to mix and match, plus they are getting me excited for spring! I’m all for the edgy, b&w chic looks, but every once in awhile, it’s good to embrace your inner girly girl (especially this time of year)! V-day is the perfect excuse to wear your bold colors in your closet and get all dolled up. A fancy dinner – whether it be with your Valentine or your Galentines – should be celebrated in style!
Thanks so much for stopping by, beautiful!! I have some really fun giveaways coming up so check back soon!
These are pictures from our proms last year❤
So I will be the first to admit that I am incredibly extra when it comes to any big event. This prom will be the 9th dance I’ve been to. I almost always make a schedule that looks exactly like this in order to prep myself for a big event. So I’m going to walk you all through how I spend the week getting ready for a big event.
Monday: time to start taming your acne
-use anti-redness eye drops to reduce any redness or any inflammation that come with acne!
-If I’m breaking out more than usual, I make a powdered aspirin mask! I’ll leave a link to the recipe I use.
Tuesday: bring out your inner glow
-This is my go to recipe when I need to brighten my face up! This lemon honey skin scrub leaves my face feeling absolutely amazing.
-I also use a peeling mask! You can totally just go buy one from the store, but I am a health nut when it comes to what I’m putting on my skin so I usually make my own! The mask from this recipe smells a little funny, but it works so so well. And you know the charcoal masks that everyone seems to be doing that hurts when you peel it off. Well… this one hurts super bad, so if you have any peach fuzz you probably won’t have any after this! So you also don’t have to worry about getting rid of peach fuzz, you kill two birds with one stone(LOL).
Wednesday: tame your brows!
-Do NOT wait until the day before prom to wax your brows because you don’t know how long your skin will stay irritated. Yes, I am speaking from experience.
-Also use today and find a good brow gel that will keep your brows in place throughout all of your prom festivities
Thursday: just pamper yourself
prom is supposed to be fun so don’t forget to take a day to just relax!
-Today I usually go get my nails done! One of my favorite things to do when I’m getting ready for a big event.
(you’re about to see how extra I am)
– I usually take an extra long bath. Diffuse stress away oil. Use a lavender bath bomb.
Friday: goodbye hairy legs
-So I usually take another bath (because I’m extra) and exfoliate with a coffee scrub
-I go buy a brand new razor or wax strips. If I shave any earlier then today there is a good chance I’m not going to have smooth legs on prom day 😂
– I also self tan this day. I normally use a tanning bed (super unhealthy I know) but we just moved so I don’t have access to my tanning bed.
coffee scrub recipe:
• 1 tablespoon of coffee ground
• 1 tablespoon of sugar
• 1 tablespoon of coconut oil or olive oil
What I do every day:
-I whiten my teeth with my smilescience kit: use the code “Haylee2” for 90% off of your kit
-I also apply argon oil to my ends every day this week just to help with the dryness
-Invest in a good antiperspirant or deodorant
– I always use lipsense for special events like this. Lipsense is a smudge proof lipstick! I wore bright red lipstick with my white dress last year and I wasn’t even worried about it. The lipstick lasted the entire day: pictures, dinner, and dancing.
I’ll be following along with this schedule this week on my Instagram story so follow hayleejacobs_ if you want to prep for prom with me!
