Review of SOJOS Sunnies

Hey there! I was approached by Sojo to try some of their sunglasses from Amazon. This offer came at just the right time because I lost the aviators I bought during graduation and was in need of some new ones!

Here’s one of my picks:

Shop them here!

I’ve seen this style around the ‘gram but it’s mostly in black when I have seen them. I decided to go with blue because I know I have a lot of fun summer looks with a lot of color that will go well with these.

Shop them here!

I love aviators so this choice wasn’t very difficult for me. I think the pink color is just really girly and chic. I honestly felt like a superstar when I tried on these glasses!

Overall Review

I am really happy with the quality of these glasses. I never go into a review expecting too much and was really excited about these. The packaging was sleek and organized and the glasses felt light on my face. I know I will be able to use these sunglasses all summer long!

Happy Shopping!

How to Shop Shein

Hey there! Today I’m talking about one of my favorite places to shop online…Shein! My boyfriend has told me that I should be called The Shein Shopper by now, but we’ll see about that!

If you’ve been curious about ordering from Shein lately, then wait no more and read my top three tips about how to shop on Shein.

Tip One: Read Reviews

I believe Shein has come a long way over the past years…it’s been eleven years since the company started their treasure trove of online clothes.

A few of the most helpful things about Shein are the comments and pictures from users. It is sooo important to find reviews with pictures because you can get an idea about what the product looks like on someone with a similar body type.

You can choose to see reviews with a picture.

Tip Two: Product Type

Here’s a tricky tip, but one I think you can understand. I believe one of the reasons why Shein can sell products so low (other than being in China) is because some of the products require YOU to do a little work to make it look the way it did online.

I’m going to give you some pretty specific examples here. This romper looked super cute on the site, with that big bow in the middle really drawing me in to purchase it.

Well, that big bow is actually something you have to tie yourself! …which I was horrible at doing so this is how I wore the romper.

Buy the romper here!

Here’s another example side by side.

In this case, the dress had a microscopic slit on the side where the string goes to tie the bow. I eventually found the slit, but I was ready to cut my own right before I found it! If you’re interested, buy the dress here!

Tip Three: Get Points!

One of the biggest reasons I love shopping with Shein is the discounts associated with points. Every 100 point is a dollar! So if you plan on shopping with Shein after your first order, here are some simple ways to save on your next purchase.

You’ll want to make sure you hit the “delivered” button when you get the package because this instantly gives you points for the amount of the order. So if your order was $100, then you get 100 points!

The next thing you can do is write a review! You don’t have to upload a professional picture, but you do get 20 points for having one. The written part of the review is 10 points and you’re free to write as little as you’d like!

The site used to let you review an item individually, but now it looks like you must review each item in your order. If you plan on doing an order review, make sure you have some time and snap a picture of each product whether you’re wearing it or have it flat laid!

Get Shopping!

I hope you enjoyed these tips about shopping with Shein! To see a review of a full order you can watch my YouTube video here. If you have any more questions or tips you’ve found about the site, feel free to shoot them my way!

As always, happy shopping!

Amazon Flower Dress

Hey there! I was sent this dress for a review and wanted to share it all with you!

The dress has pockets and two slits on either side. I like the length of the dress, considering I am short! I chose this pattern because I wanted to try something different from just a plain color. I’m not sure if I would order the pattern again, just because it is a little loud, but I would wear it to the beach or pool during summer.

Bathing Suit Round-up!

I’ve been slacking lately! Sometimes it’s easy to get in the downward spiral of an unproductive week, but here I am with a new post!

I’ve posted 3 bathing suits on my Insta and I wanted to share them with you!

The first suit is a super fun rainbow look! I was impressed with how great the fit of this suit actually was. It is from Zaful and I am wearing a size small.

Shop the look!

The next suit is also from Zaful and has straps that tie into bows. The bikini also comes in black and white!

Shop the look!

The last look is a bikini from Forever 21 I totally bought on a whim from the clearance section! I was so happy with how cool the design actually looked! Since the suit was on clearance, it’s not up for purchase, but you can shop a similar print in the link.

Shop the look! Top Bottom

Those are the suits I have for you so far! Can’t wait for summer to actually be here!

Summer Frayed Slide Sandals

Hey there! So there are some really cute sandals I’ve been eyeing from another blogger lately. They look like this:

My problem is 1. they are sold out and 2. they are out of my budget! So I decided to do a little researching and see if I could find some similar looking sandals for a price that better fits my bank account. 

Here’s what I found!

I used to wear TOMS all the time in high school. I was obsessed with their mission statement and how I could slip them on without socks. I think this sandal looks very sleek and chic for a great price!

Shop yours here!

Hello wedges! Wedges are always in for spring and summer so when I came across these I thought they were just perfect. Amazon has these sandals and they come in denim as well!

Shop yours here!

Lastly are these slides from Chinese Laundry. This is also a brand I forgot about from my high school days! I remember loving their styles and that holds with these striped sandals! 

Shop yours here!

Don’t forget to click on those links if you would like to buy any of these sandals for yourself or a friend aaaand happy shopping!

My Dilemma with Shorts

Hey there, hope you are having a fantastic week! I wanted to talk about something I used to hate…shorts. Yup! I used to just loathe wearing shorts. The reason? I feel like as soon as I hit puberty in eighth grade, my confidence in showing off my legs went down the drain. Puberty gave me hips, a rounder behind, and some thicker thighs. I have felt like these attributes stopped me from feeling good in any shorts for a long time.

Not anymore!

Although it has taken a lot of time for me to boost my self esteem about everything below my waist, now I am so happy to throw on a jean short!

Two things happened to make this possible.

I found a lot of happiness within myself when I started working out more regularly. I am not saying you need to lose weight to wear the clothes you want…because I didn’t really lose weight! My body did change, but more importantly my mind became stronger. I lifted weights and was impressed with what my body could do. Because I was able to carry a 95 lb bar on my shoulders, I felt invincible! I was so proud of my body and wasn’t afraid to show it off.

I also stopped looking at what other girls wore and started to shop for shorts that would compliment me. No body is exactly the same and there’s nothing wrong with passing up a certain style.

FACTS!

Since I do have a more curvy bottom, paper bag or high waisted shorts work really well on my figure. When it comes to jean shorts, I tend to look for a design with more of a triangle shape. This means the bottom flares out and doesn’t cling to your thighs.

If there’s one thing I hate, it’s a wedgie from shorts.

But enough about me, I have five of my favorite shorts from two brands to share with you! All of these are booty friendly, approved by me!

Kohl’s Shorts

I really like these shorts because they don’t ride up at all! The material is soft and the waist can be worn higher or lower. Both are $32 each. Click here to get the look!

These are the ultimate jean shorts for me! They meet all the criteria: flare out bottom, high waist, and they don’t ride up. Plus the lace addition is adorable. These shorts are $28. To get the look, click here!

On Me

Shein Shorts

Shein $8.00

First off, you really can’t beat the prices here. In this tropical print, I was nervous with an extra small, but the waist comes up pretty high making them a win for me! To get the look, click here!

Shein $12.00

The stripe design of these shorts is hot for spring/summer and the paper bag waist makes them extra hot for me! To get the look, click here!

Spring Time Looks!

It’s finally starting to look a lot like spring! I thought Cali would never escape the cold and the rain, but it looks like we can all start breaking out those dresses and rompers! All the rain brought some beautiful blooms and I was able to take a trip to see them at Carrizo Plains.

While I did get horribly lost on the way, the comedic family trip did bring success in finding a patch of blooms after about two hours of driving. Traveling tip: type this address in your maps → 17495 Soda Lake Rd, Santa Margarita, CA 93453 and do not trust anything else!

The first look from my mini photo shoot is a dress from Kohls. I am wearing an extra small and I found it to fit really comfortably. I can see myself wearing this during the day running errands or going to lunch…it really is that comfy! Shop the look here.

The second look is from H&M and while I think this looked great with all of the flowers, it really can be worn for a dinner or a night out. I think it has an elegant touch with the long sleeves but remains simple with the pattern. In this jumpsuit I am wearing a size 0. Shop the look here.

The last look is from Shein and it’s an outfit I’ve been eyeing for a while. I was a little nervous about the tightness of the skirt and the length of the sleeves. I was surprised with the fit when I first tried it on. The skirt hugs your butt and the length isn’t too short. The top hangs out a little bit in the front because it seems like there’s a bit too much fabric there. I think it might have fit better with an elastic bottom so it would hug your torso, but this does give a lot of room for different shapes and sizes. Online the fabric looks like a light linen, but it’s a little heavier than I expected. I am wearing a small in this set. Shop the look here.

There you have it friends! These are some of my fave spring time looks and I hope they can make it to your closet as well.
