Music Monday: Beyonce

I almost feel like it's pointless introducing you to Beyonce, because who doesn't know about this woman? Especially after the recent BeyMA's performance.
She's made a name for herself since her Destiny's Child days, that's for sure.

Anyway, certain Mondays need a smug, "Like a boss" attitude to conquer them, and this song certainly helps me get in that mood. Apologies if anyone finds it offensive.

But you heard the Queen, bow down!

Now go conquer your Monday, Beyonce style.

Influenster: The Vitality Voxbox

Vitality Voxbox: c/o Influenster
I've had the opportunity to work with Influenster before (see here and here), and was pleased to have gotten the chance to collaborate again, this time reviewing the Vitality Voxbox from them! I wasn't entirely certain what this box would contain, but when I opened it to find these practical goodies inside, I had to smile.
As a college girl living on her own, I need the items in this box. 
But first, lemme take a selfie!
My lips have been really dry lately, so this cube from Soft Lips arrived just in time. It has a yummy vanilla scent and taste when applied - it's difficult not licking it off at times! 
I was pleasantly surprised by the Pure Leaf tea included in the box! It was good, and after chilling in the fridge for a night, a very refreshing treat. There's nothing more enjoyable than sitting out on your porch with a good book and sweet lemon tea on hand. 
The other items in the box included:
-Bikini Ready gummies
-Playtex tampons
-First Degree burn cream
-Elizabeth Arden Flawless Future

Needless to say, a lot of needs were covered by the Vitality Voxbox! I'll be taking a trip into the woods for a backpacking weekend I signed up for through my college, and I'll be taking a few of these goodies with me. So I'll be gone from the blogosphere for a few days, but when I come back, hopefully I'll have an experience to share with you!

Music Monday: Madam Tsunami

You guys should know that I am a sucker for a good acoustic sound. 
Well, when I found out about Madam Tsunami, I was intrigued by the label for their sound; "Unplugged and acoustic with grunge influences"
They're a group formed in New Zealand and their front man, Adam Usmani, wrote the lyrics, inspired by his working class background. 

I'd have to say that's a perfect description! 
Check out more of Madam Tsunami and what they're about here.

Cheers to the week!

Old School Charm

Dress: c/o eShakti   Hat: c/o Oasap   Wedges: Just Fab   Watch: c/o Feral Watches
"I need to add a touch of Linda to this!" I thought, as I speculated the adorable vintage-inspired dress hanging before me. When eShakti offered me a chance to review another of their dresses, I leaped at the chance! Then my eyes landed on this classic beauty of a dress, and I immediately chose it without much thought. Well, with a dash of leopard print, fringe, and some eclectic jewelry, I feel like I tried out a new style while still maintaining my own. 

I tried eShakti's custom fit option, and boy, is this dress going to get some loving. It fits. Perfectly.
Do you know how difficult that is for someone with my body shape? If a dress fits my wide hips, it's too tight on my upper torso. If it's too tight on my hips, then forget about even trying to shimmy it on. It ain't happening. However, eShakti understands not all women come in the same size and caters to that. Finally!

So this is what I wore to go grab some coffee with Kirsten and explore a (new to us) shop downtown filled with antiques. We couldn't smother the gasps and squeals of delight that escaped us as we stumbled across treasure after treasure of history. From old school cameras, to vinyl records, to ancient photos of people from the past, we found a hoard of valuables that are just sitting in this tiny shop collecting dust. 

Ah, the things you discover if you just go a little out of your way to find them. 

But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
Matthew 6:33
