Victoria Beckham for Target Guesses

April is going to be a big month for fashion in my life! Not only is it Memphis Fashion Week but also the Victoria Beckham for Target collaboration will be released on April 9th. I'm so excited and can't decide if the other Memphis fashionistas will be excited too so I'm thinking it's going to be another early morning to get there when the store opens.

 
While the look book has not yet be released (based on prior collaboration timing it should be released sometime in the next two weeks) I feel like VB is consistent enough that we should have a decent idea of what to expect. VB has already stated that the collection will be similar to her Victoria  Victoria Beckham line early designs.
 
Here's a pre 2017 piece currently available on a fashion discount site:

 
Just based on this and the promo pic alone it looks like VVB sticks to classic pieces with touches of a feminine feel - this is my ultimate closet makeover aesthetic goal hence why I'm VERY excited for this collection.  Based on current trends and VVB styles I've seen here's what I'm hoping to get from this collaboration. These are just my personal speculations, I'll be sure to do a post with my favorite looks once the look book is released and let y'all know if I was right or not.
 

Flounce hem dress


I would LOVE to get something like this from the collection and the flounce hem appears in several VVB collections so I feel like this is part of her signature style and it would be a shame if it was not included in the collection.
 

Waist emphasizing cuts


A lot of VVB items are made to bring focus on the waist which again plays into the feminine classic style. I would expect a few curve hugging pieces and fitted tops. I love the fitted yet flowy look of this particular top and would be sure to grab one if a similar one was at target.

Bell Sleeves

Fun sleeves are so in right now and I see VB really embracing this with both of her collections so I hope she brought this 8into the target collection as well. This is a mass production line though so I wouldn't expect to see the extreme details like in designer lines but think a bell sleeve or small ruffle would be a way to bring this trend into the target line.
 
I also expect to see at least one piece that incorporates a bow, work friendly blouses, trousers with a slight flare, simple designed large bags, aviator sunglasses and simple strappy shoes. If my guesses are right I'm going to have a very hard time deciding what to get.

Ipsy Glam Bag April 2017

OMG, Ipsy finally has a cute bag for the month!
Seriously, this month's coral ticket design bag is super cute and would make a fun little clutch for a night out at a festival or fair.
The items I received this month weren't terrible either. Here's what's inside my bag and my thoughts on each product:
OFRA Cosmetics Peach Blush $12 Everything I've received from this company in my Ipsy bad is a full-sized product (nice)! However they need to be in a refillable palette so that may not be your thing but I just found mine recently so this offends me less. This is overall a nice shade so I'll add it to my palette.
Hanalei Aloe Soothing Gel $30 This is a little more lightweight than the aloe gel you can get in a giant bottle at CVS but I'm skeptical yet if that makes it worth $30 for a jar. We're going to the beach in May so the timing is good and I'm sure I'll use the whole sample.
No Poreblem Primer $18 This is a nice, lightweight primer and has a …

Sephora Play April 2017

This month's Sephora Play box featured some of the top selling Sephora products, here's what's inside:


Smashbox Photo Finish Primer
I currently use this primer and it helps my foundation go on smooth and keeps my face from getting too oily during the day. It's light weight and has no scent and one tube lasts a really long time - I bought mine before my wedding and that was six months ago.

Make Up For Ever Aqua XL eyeliner
The Make Up For Ever brand is very popular at Sephora and very nice quality products. This eyeliner doesn't smudge and goes on smooth.

Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Cloud Cream
This is a primer / moisturizer combo and I really like the way it feels - very light weight and makes my skin feel silky

Kate Somerville ExfoliKate
This says it's an "intense exfoliator" but I found it to be very fine. The paste is ather think and a yucky green color with a heavy plant scent, but hey if it works who cares what it looks like.

Sephora Waterproof …

Memphis Fashion Week 2017 Emerging Designers

The last night of Memphis Fashion Week is the favorite night for many local fashionistas because it shows off what is up and coming in our city. Once again I was able to grab a great seat and see the pieces up close.

First up for the evening was two time previous winner Tiena. I think it's easy to see why she's won twice before - just wow on these beautiful designs!





I love the model's expression here - it's like she just loves wearing this so much she can't contain it.








I love all of it but the yellow ruffle dress has to be my favorite, it's not a color I would typically be drawn to but there's something so nice about it!
Next up was the teen collection, these pieces were designed by beautiful young ladies all under 20. Once again, I am a complete and total life slacker. Seriously - I was blown away by how talented these girls are:






20 Guildelines for Financial Responsibility

As a blogger I constantly worry if I am supporting over consumerism and irresponsible spending. At the end of the day I can say Oh, I LOVE this item and it was so worth it to me but I have to hope that people are making the right decisions based on their own financial situation. But since finance is a passion of mine (it is my day job after all) and since so many of y'all are looking to focus on your own finances in 2019 I thought it might be good to take a step back from fashion and talk about the money honey! I don't claim to have all the answers or to be an expert, but I've learned a lot between my education, my career and to be honest making some bad financial decisions myself so I've complied a list of 20 guidelines for financial success from the basics to saving for the future. The Basics 1. You absolutely must be able to cover the four walls - your home and all utilities and maintenance - and your necessary expenses (food, car, gas) before you can think about…

Plum Paper Designs - Fitness Insert

I know I say this every year but this year I also want to make wellness / fitness a priority. It's hard for me to get in the mindset of making it important because quite frankly it's not something my doctor gets onto me about. But during 2015 I've been making a switch to a more natural lifestyle and that has put fitness back at my top of mind. So, for $4.50 I got the fitness section added onto my Plum Paper Designs Planner 
Here's what's inside: 

A summary sheet at the front: 

A monthly layout for 12 months
Weight Loss Tracker at the Back 

I LOVE the monthly layout! First off, having a hydration tracker for each day is going to be so nice. I also love the idea of holding myself accountable to writing down an activity (or excuse) each day. Most of all I love the recognition that each month will have different goals and includes some note sections ; one thing I hear a lot form people who successfully got fit was that they had some kind of tracking and were able to go back…
