One of my favorite perks of being a blogger is getting to read other blogger’s work. Deux Bella is an awesome blog by two vivacious women, Melissa and Deynece, that I’m thrilled to introduce all of you to. On Deux Bella you can expect to find all things beauty and fashion.They strive to find fashion that is a great price, quality, customer service, etc. You can also expect to find a variety of things they love and feel bring beauty to their lives.

Looking Good For Less with Daily Opulence

The necklace I am wearing in this post was gifted to me courtesy of Daily Opulence. However, the opinions express in this post are mine and mine alone. For more information, please see my full disclosure statement.

I realized last week that the Boy and I have been so busy, we hadn’t had time for a date in probably over a month. Despite all we have going on and the fact that we live together, I still think it’s important for us to date. For me, a date doesn’t have to be super fancy or expensive.

Daily Opulence, a fairly new online boutique, has become one of my favorite go-to’s for affordable and unique accessories. I love shopping the site to find inexpensive pieces to take my simple date night outfits to the next level. They also have nice selections for men and recently began to sell clothing! (more…)

I also believe there is a difference between fashion and style (we’ll get into that in just a second).  One of my closest friends is launching a new company in a few weeks and the theme of the party is “Flashback Friday Juke Jam” and guests are being asked to dress in late 90’s/early 2000’s attire. While I was searching for an appropriate outfit, I started looking back on old fashions and reminiscing how I used to make the trends my own. THIS really got me thinking about how each of us finds our unique style. (more…)

Springtime Smooth w/ Dove Dry Oil Collection

The cold winter months can be super harsh on our skin. My skin is often dry no matter how much lotion I put on. With spring rolling in and the weather slowly getting warm enough for open-toed shoes and cute dresses, I am obsessed with making sure my skin is hydrated, moisturized, and silky smooth. Lucky for me an opportunity to partner with Dove and try their New Dove Dry Oil Collection featuring their Dove Dry Oil Beauty Bar and Dove Dry Oil Moisture Body Wash presented itself just in time for my girls trip to the beach.

What You Need to Know About Consignment

We live in a world dominated by social media and celebrities. You can’t pass through a grocery store checkout line without seeing celebrities draped in the newest designer clothes and handbags.

Thankfully for us royals in reality, some genius created consignment shops, which allow us to get our hands on luxury items for deeply discounted prices. (more…)
