National Anthem

It's that time of year for one of the best summer holidays... Fourth of July! To me, the best way to spend Fourth of July is near the water, barbecuing and having a delicious assortment of food and drinks, watching a great fireworks show, and being surrounded with friends and family. Fourth of July is a holiday that is mostly spent outside, so I like to keep my look fun, cute, and comfortable. I wore a crop top, high waisted shorts, and sneakers to stay cool during the Fourth of July heat. I also added a bold red lip to make the outfit pop. To pay homage to this holiday, don't forget to incorporate the three main colors of the day into your outfit... red, white, and blue!

June Obsessions and Unfavorites

1.) Amarillo/Canyon, TX trip- I really enjoyed my trip to the Amarillo/Canyon, Texas region. I was there visiting one of my best friends. Even though I live in the Lone Star State, I have never been in that part of Texas before. It’s a great place to visit for a spontaneous weekend getaway. If you are ever in that region, I suggest checking out The Palo Duro Canyons, Cadillac Ranch, and The Big Texan restaurant.

2.) Crop Tops- I’ve have been obsessed with crop tops lately. They are perfect for summer.  When styled right, the crop top is chic and sexy at the same time. I like to pair my crop tops with a pair of high waisted shorts or a skirt. If you are reluctant about showing off your midriff, you can pair a sweater crop top over a button down shirt or you can pair a crop top with a jacket or a cardigan.

3.) Covergirl Foundation- The Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 foundation is becoming one of my new favorite foundations. I like the coverage of the foundation. It feels light on your face and it’s not cakey feeling. I also like that it stays on and looks fresh for a long time. I wore the foundation the other day and after a few hours, it still looked like I just applied the foundation. I have fair skin, so I bought it 842 medium beige and I applied the foundation with a foundation brush.

4.) Afterlight App-  Afterlight is an app that you can use to edit your photos on your phone.  The app has a bunch of different filters you can use. The filters are different from the ones Instagram offers. Afterlight offers a wider array of filter options. You can also adjust how much of the filter you want to use by adjusting the percentage amount. They also have cool photo effects you can add to your pictures like light leaks, boarders where you can make your photo into the shape of a circle, triangle, etc. , and you can give your photo an old timey look.

5.) Mansfield,Texas Murals-  One of my favorite things is discovering new street art and murals. The murals and artwork that are in Mansfield, Texas are ones to check out. I love how downtown Mansfield has incorporated creative murals in a place where you would never expect to discover them.  You will find murals of John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, and Charlie Chaplin. My other favorite murals are of a grumpy cat, a woman with colorful hair,  and the sunshine girl. Mansfield also has different colorful walls that are perfect to take photos at. Downtown Mansfield has become one of my favorite locations to take my blog photos at! You can find more information about the murals here and here.
