TOP 5 FAVORITE PUMPKIN GOODIES TO BUY FROM TRADER JOE’S

  1. First we have the PUMPKIN JOE JOE’S!! Joe Joe’s are Trader Joe’s version of Oreos! These cookies are sooooo addicting and so delicious!! They have a pumpkin cream filling! Autumn never tasted so good!
  2. PUMPKIN SPICE TEA!! This tea is not overwhelming with pumpkin! It has just enough pumpkin spice in it! It has easily become one of my favorite afternoon pick me ups! (Tastes really good when paired with a Joe Joe or two)
  3. PUMPKIN TORTILLA CHIPS! I know, the sound of that sounds kind of gross… I was very hesitant when buying these, now three bags later (no joke), they are my absolute favorite chips EVER! Again the pumpkin is not overwhelming but just enough to taste like fall!
  4. HARVEST SALSA! The best salsa ever when paired with the pumpkin tortilla chips! This has been my favorite late night snack lately! The salsa tastes so fresh yet taste just like how you would imagine autumn would taste like!
  5. PUMPKIN SPICE RXBAR! These bars are my favorite on the go snacks! Trader Joe’s has several flavors of them too! I usually eat one before my pure barre class starts just to give me an boost of energy! This pumpkin spice bar tastes like a pumpkin spice brownie! No joke! You have to give one a try!

Girls Night Out Dress

Hi girlfriends! I hope everyone is having a wonderful week! I’m currently in North Carolina & boy does it still feel like HOT summer here! I have been dying to whip out all of my fall boots, knits & scarves but it looks like I’m going to be enjoying a few more weeks of warmer weather! Which I am totally fine with if it means I get to keep wearing all the cute dresses like this one!

 

This dress just SCREAMS Girls Night Out to me!!  I have been eyeing it for awhile now & at the insane price of $56 + free shipping, I finally decided to try it out to see what all the hype is about. (y’all this dress has over 700 amazing reviews on it!) And now I want it in ALL the colors (comes in 7 colors!)  When you put it on, you immediately feel fierce! Super flattering dress for all body types! I can see this dress also transitioning perfectly into fall by adding a chunky cardigan (like this one)  over it & pairing it with a floppy hat! Also these adorable peep toe booties are so comfortable and are under $40! Must have for fall! And I love how this necklace just gave the dress a more edgy look, it’s actually light weight & under $30! If you notice most of my looks are very affordable! I really try to find you guys the best quality pieces at understandable price points! If you decide to order this dress let me know what you think & send me pictures of how you styled it!  🙂

Size Tip: I am wearing a size Small in this dress! I’m typically a size 2 & I am 5’4 for a height reference!

Friday Favorites

Hello loves & HAPPY FRIDAY!

Today I’m sharing all the details on my current favorites! Just a side note on here, I am obsessed with this North Carolina spring like weather! It’s been amazing here, can’t believe its February and I’m in shorts! Crazy right? Anyways let’s get started on my Friday Favorites List!

  1. St. Tropez Self Tanner. I love a good self tanner and have tried them all! I used to be a tanning bed addict back in my cheerleading days and boy do I regret that now! Ladies it’s not worth the risk of skin cancer! So right now I am relying on good self tanners to get that summer glow since its apparently it’ already shorts season here in the pines! This self tanner is a bit pricey but I love the natural look of it and that it’s gradual. I have been getting professional spray tans done too so when I’m in between spray tans this stuff is a life saver!

2. Revlon Matte Lip Color. I have never been one to wear drugstore lip color, but this stuff is the real deal, trust me! I love the matte finish it has when it dries! I color I use is “Seduction” and that is what I’m wearing in today’s blog post!

3. Too Faced Natural Eyes. This eye palette is a game changer! So many different looks too. What I like most about it is that I love all of the colors & use them all. Definitely give this a try ladies, especially if you have brown eyes like me.

4. The Magnolia Story. I mean come on who doesn’t love Chip and Joanna Gaines?! I love to wind down at night with a good book and just disconnect from technology since I am constantly on my phone and laptop! This is a wonderful read! Check it out!

5. La Croix.  I have a real obsession with my sparkling waters! These are so refreshing! My favorite flavors are Passion Fruit and Pineapple Strawberry!

6. This Shimmering Sequin Top! My most favorite item of my Friday favorites! This fun top is from Catch Bliss Boutique! Guys you have to check them out! They have the cutest clothes and are always getting in new shipments and fresh styles. I have a few items in my cart right now like this fun White Off the Shoulder Dress and this Baby Blue Cold Shoulder Dress! Catch Bliss Boutique started with the vision of offering the latest contemporary wardrobe staples and season must-have pieces and that is exactly what they have done!!

Okay friends I hope you have enjoyed my Friday Favorites! Let me know in the comments if this is something I should do on a weekly!

Have a wonderful weekend!!

Thank you Catch Bliss for sponsoring today’s blog post!

Pineapple Fever

Yes, it’s true.. I have Pineapple Fever! I always have and probably always will! I simply adore pineapples! I recently bought the cutest pineapple tray ever (it’s linked below). Did you know that the pineapple is symbolic for southern hospitality? Another reason I am in love with decorating with this sweet fruit, also it’s very fitting for me since I live in the “Land of the Pines” here in North Carolina.

I hope you enjoy my favorite Pineapple picks!

My Top 5 New Year’s Resolutions + My Top 5 Current Favorite Sweaters

First off Happy New Year!! I don’t know about you, but I am so ready for 2017! I just love how a new year means a fresh start! I am ready to tackle this year and make this year my best year so far! I have a lot of dreams to accomplish! So lets do this 2017!! I thought it was be fun if I shared each resolution along with a current favorite sweater! Before I get started, I want to share the details of the dress pictured above! It’s such a fun flirty dress, sizing tip ladies, size down! I am wearing an XS and I am by no means an XS girl! It comes to several colors too! So check out the dress here!

My Top Five Resolutions for 2017:

The first sweater I’m sharing is such a closet staple! Love a good neutral!

1.Be consistent with working out. This is HUGE for me! I am so guilty of going all out with workouts then taking a long “break”. This year is going to be different! I will consistently workout 5-6 days a week! I actually have found an amazing workout, Pure Barre! I am so in love with these workouts! They are different everyday and you work out every little muscle! It has been the most effective workout I have ever done! I have been doing Pure Barre for two months now and have lost a whopping 10lbs! Yes! 10 lbs! And still have about 5-10 more lbs to go! Side note I am only 5’4 so any extra weight on me shows up. I firmly believe Barre is life changing and if there is a Pure Barre studio near you…RUN TO IT! Yes its pricey but its your health which is SO important! I just work it into the budget! Speaking of Budgeting…

 

The second sweater I’m sharing is a two for one! The cowl neck is actually a detachable scarf! The fit of this sweater is super flattering too!

2. Budget.

 

The third sweater is the perfect off the shoulder top! I have tried several and none of them have stayed in place, this one actually does! And the color is so gorgeous!

3. Quiet Time. Being intentional about setting a quiet time with God and really doing daily devotions! I am totally guilty of skipping my time with the Lord because I’m too “busy” but guess what happens when I do that? I can’t think clear, I have too much on my brain and don’t feel fulfilled at all that day! So if I am ever having a bad day, I can almost guarantee you that I didn’t read my Bible that morning!

 

The fourth sweater just screams ALEXA! I love anything leopard print! I call this my conservative Spice Girls top! Hurry its selling out fast!

4. Eat Healthy and Practice Portion Control! This one is a no brainer. Eat healthy feel healthy. BUT I know everyday I am not going to be 100% healthy, I am human! But when I do break and eat “bad” foods, I will not go crazy! Portion, Portion, Portion!!! I strongly believe you do not need to deprive yourself of your favorite foods! For me this is pizza and pasta! Yes the Italian and Greek in me is strong when it comes to yummy food!! Tonight I’m making pasta but making it healthier, using ground turkey instead of beef and I’ll be weighing and portioning out my plate. Also one more thing we will be doing is eating at home for 90% of our meals, it’s way healthier and way cheaper!

Last but not least is my favorite cardigan! It is so soft and cozy! A must have!

5. Plan and Organize! One thing about me is that I am a “creative” person and just have ideas bouncing around in my head constantly! So…I ordered an Erin Condren planner for Christmas! And I am in love! It’s sitting beside me right now actually. I love all the fun stickers and planning out my days has been a game changer for me! It is one way I plan to stay organized in 2017!

I hope you have enjoyed my resolutions and that they have encouraged you to start 2017 with a bang!

How I made $1,000 from Cleaning out my Closet

$1,000. You heard right! I had no idea I had made that much money in a few short months by cleaning out my closet but I recently looked at my total sales so far and it was a little over $1,000! I couldn’t believe it! And it honestly couldn’t have been easier! So how did I make $1,000?? PoshMark! Poshmark is the easiest way to sell your gently used clothes! Selling your items can be done in minutes on your phone using the Poshmark app! Unlike ebay and other companies, they pay for the shipping! That was my biggest reason for trying out Poshmark. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve lost money on ebay from the shipping! When an item sells on Poshmark they simply email you a label and you use a free usps box (you order these boxes online and they come to your door..for freee!) and then simply package up your sold items and stick them in the mailbox! It is that simple!

A Few Tips:

Order these and these free boxes (These sizes fit perfectly in my mailbox, this way I don’t have to go to the Post Office)

Price everything fairly, items that are priced too high will not get you sales. Yes you may have paid $50 for that sweater but now its worth about $10. I would rather sell lots of clothing for cheap and get PAID rather than having it all sit in my closet still.

Take good quality pictures that really show the clothing for what it is, do not ever try to deceive your buyers because you want to build a trustworthy relationship with them

Offer a discount bundle (I offer 15% off when you buy 2 or more items)

Have a printer at home

Get fun colored or printed tissue paper to wrap up your clothes in

Include a thank note

Send everything that sells ASAP! The quicker you send an item the quicker you get $$$

Use my code ” JWCKK ” when signing up for the Poshmark app & you will automatically have a $5 credit! Wish I had this code when I signed up!

Be sure to check my personal Poshmark account because I am adding new items daily and still have so much more to list! My username is @alexaelizabeth

Happy Poshing!!
