Think Pink





Yesterday was Palm Sunday and even though Savannah decided to have a chilly weekend I refused to dress in anything but Spring wear. I decided to add pink accessories to a basic white button down and jeans. These heels are from Ivanka Trump and I got them for $25 at TJ Maxx (originally $125), insane I know #maxxlife. I picked up this clutch from a Kate Spade surprise sale, but they always have something similar at the outlets. I've linked similar accessories in the widget.

Tim and I had brunch at the Funky Brunch Cafe on Broughton. It was such a cool concept because each table has a griddle you can cook your own pancakes on! We ended up sitting at the bar because it was a 45-60 min wait. Guess that means we have to go back! Afterward we stopped by Whole Foods for my very first time. I got some tulips and my favorite protein waffles because I get nervous when I don't have a backup box in the freezer... 

Thanks for reading,

Friday Favorites


It's officially Spring Break! I'll be in Florida all next week and plan to take a little social media break. In the meantime, here are some links I've been loving!

This watch is very Kate Spast-esk and is under $25!

If you're on the market for mascara (really when are you not?) check out this link to see how 100 different mascaras apply. 

Target has been on point for their beachwear this season. Love this and this

I am all about the boho sheer cardigan cover ups I've seen lately. I recently picked up this one with their BOGO! I wish I had time to order this one...

In honor of St. Patrick's Day, I would LOVE to snack on these little treats (link and link)


All these spring colors are making me giddy! Hope you all have a great weekend!

INSTACHIC VOL 3

Here's a quick recap of some outfits that I didn't get to shoot for a full post. I'm studying for my third exam of the week so I'm sorry for the light posting lately. 

Selfie while shopping at the Avalon with my family before grabbing delicious pizza at . This weekend was all about this lip color-girl about town. Shop my vest here (size XS). I purchased mine off Poshmark, check out my closet here 

 How amazing is this birdcage chair from Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams? Rhetorical question.

 VivoSmart band / mug (check your stores!) / initial mug 

Shoes: Kate Spade Keds (purchased new on Postmark). I love this rose gold version and of course these designed by Taylor Swift / Jeans: Express / Tee: J Crew Jactory (similar, similar) / scarf ($5!) 

 sweater (Mine is a large. I had to have it after finding it on the sale rack for $19. I just wear a scarf with it and I like it oversized!) / jeans: express / shoes / necklace / scarf old (almost exact) / sunglasses / iPhone case ~ after a Kate Spade casualty with my iPhone 5 I trust this one with my new 6. Although I'm contemplating getting this one..

Top:  New fave, even wrinkled ;) Side note: Old Navy needs to update their fitting rooms.
  leggings: Lululemon / boots: Coach (old) / bag: Tory Burch / Watch / spike bracelets / bling bracelet (love these matching earrings) / scarf / lipstick (Girl about town) / ring / Bellami extensions in strawberry blonde (check out my review here)


Thank you for reading! :)

Rocksbox Review



free rocksbox code, rocksbox promo code, rocks box review
Items in my box: SLATE Golden Flair Necklace / Gorjana Bali Tube Necklace / 
CC Skye Double Header Pave Spike Bracelet in Gold

I jumped on the bandwagon and received my first Rocksbox yesterday. I was so excited to see this gold fringe necklace included, because it was one of the pieces that led me to sign up! It's like they knew.. haha.  For a month you can wear these pieces, and when you're ready to receive a new box send back what you don't want to keep. Each time you send it back you can give them additional information to improve your selections. For example if you have an upcoming event/ birthday/ wedding and want a certain look, let them know to include items for it.

The main reason I love Rocksbox is because I'm guilty of pairing the same jewelry pieces together for months (probably even the past couple years... ouch). A monthly delivery of new jewels will help me shy away from the same pieces and style new things! 

Now for the fun part, by using code strawberrychicxoxo you get to try out a month for FREE! You get to purchase your favorite pieces at a discounted price, plus every month you get $10 Shine Spend credit to use towards this as well! Also, I just found out that four boxes in March will include a green shamrock inside, winning $100 in Forever Spend!

WOW: Tank Top Workout


Even though it may not be 70* where you are this week, I wore a tank top for the first time in months today which led me to develop this workout! Before you know it spring weather will be here. Here's a workout to target those arms, with a little cardio of course. Most of my workouts involve burpees, and since were focusing on the arms try to add a pushup in the mix if you don't already. While jump roping make sure to engage your core, shoulders, back, and arms. For lateral raises, I like to vary the angle (straight out in front, out to the side, and somewhere in the middle) each time to target a different part of the muscle. Lastly, if 50 mountain climbers aren't enough (baller shot caller) feel free to do more ;) Complete 5 rounds or 30 minutes, whichever comes first!

Happy sweating!

Monthly Favorites: February


Jergens: This is a must during the winter months because it's natural enough (color wise) to use. I switch to a deeper self tanner for the warmer months. 

Shampoo: I wanted to give this shampoo a try after I saw it was one of Allure's Best of Beauty. For starters I love the smell, and I really did notice a difference in my curls. I'm not trying a little kit from Ulta that includes the shampoo, conditioner, and their 5 in 1 styling cream, definitely a fan! Not sure if I'll purchase the full size or not because of the price, so for now I'm saving the products for weekend hair ;)

Lipstick: This color was my most recent back-2-Mac selection and at first I wasn't too impressed but it has grown on me. I mean how appealing is the color "syrup". But it provides a great natural lip color if used lightly, and you can build it for a much deeper color. 

Leggings: I was wanting some fun leggings, but I always talked myself out of purchasing any because I wasn't too comfortable wearing them. When I saw these however they were exactly what I was looking for. I love the colors, and the panels on the back are just enough to make them fun and different. The first day I wore them I got at least 5 compliments on them. Hurry and check your store before they sell out! 

Wonder Pencil: Another recent purchase that I've been loving. I use this to lightly outline my top lip when I wear lip colors, to brighten (makes them look fuller) and also acts as a reverse lip liner. 

Lip Primer: I used to hate wearing lipstick.... until I found this product. It helps fill in lip lines and makes the lipstick go on much smoother. 

Vans Protein waffles: Funny to include but these have been my favorite find of this month. I've been eating much healthier, so I look forward to eating one of these every day. I spread a little peanut butter on it to make it even more magical. I never feel guilty eating them. I have seen them at Kroger and Publix, so I'm sure they're available wherever you shop! 


Thank you for reading. Let me know any of your current must haves!
