White Ruffles

Happy Friday guys! I posted this outfit on my way to the beach using the LIKEtoKNOW.it app but didn’t get a chance to post it on the blog!

I got a ton of questions about this top and I have to admit, I’m obsessed with it! I LOVE the ruffle/pleated detail & I think the detail off the tie is so cute! It’s overall just a different top and I think it’s so cute for fall tucked into some jean shorts or even the cooler months with some jeans and a cute pair of simple heels!

This top runs true to size and comes in white, mustard & black! I’m wearing a med for reference!

Pleated off the shoulder Top | $28

My jean shorts are American Eagle! If you’ve been following along this summer you know I found a new love for them and Abercrombie’s denim! (Abercrombie’s denim is 40% off this week by the way and American Eagle is having a Labor Day sale as well!)

High waisted Short | $27

Faux Gucci Belt | $15

Obviously you can spend $500 on the real deal but, nahhhhhh!

Custom Name Necklace | $33

I love dainty little necklaces like this! They are simple to throw on and add a touch of jewelry!

Faux Fur Sandal

Thursday shoe day?!

How cute are these?! They kinda reminded me of birkenstocks, which I am pretty against I can’t lie, but they have FUR so … it makes it okay.

Anyway they will be super cute for the fall to slip on with jean shorts and a sweater. Stuff like this is good in my mind to feel like fall even though it’s 100 degrees in Louisiana pahaha! I’ll whip these out in October!

They are only $24 and come in this color and black! Two versatile colors that will match anything! Also will be great to slip on with leggings when running out the house!

Tan Faux Fur Sandal | $24

So I’ve also recently realized since slip-ons are so popular that I should size up half a size with them. I normally wear an 8 and got an 8 1/2 in these! The fit was perfect!

puppy love portraits

Hey yall! Happy Tuesday! Today I’m hopping on to share something I know y’all will love because apparently my blog lovers are also major dog lovers!

How ADORABLE are these paintings y’all?! A friend of mine Amanda had one of Febe made YEARS ago and when I moved into Ryan’s I thought it would be cute to have them made for Fara & Rouxe as well! These are cute little water color paintings and the lady that does them recreates the photos SO WELL!

The price point is perfect if you ask me! They are $40 and I am linking them HERE all you need is your favorite photo of your pet on your phone! These come from Italy but the shipping is normally super quick!

Also linking the picture frames HERE they have a more cool wood tone, more ashy! These are also 8 x 10 size!

30 Things I Learned in My 20s

So, I am officially a 30 year old! I was laying in bed last night typing this and feeling excited + sad about this whole situation pahaha! I am aware I’m being a little dramatic! It’s just a number right? Another birthday!

ya see, kissing this decade goodbye is kinda bitter sweet! It was a rollercoaster, I experienced a lot of love, a lot of loss, a lot of fun, a lot of lessons, a lot of growth in career, a lot about people and relationships, & a LOT about ME! When I say a lot about me, I mean a lottttt – I got real with myself, spent a lot of time with myself, and really figured out what makes Chelsey happy!

My 20s were just overall a major time for me – they were empowering and created some of my BEST times that brought me to my best me!

With that being said though, I know the best is definitely still yet to come!! I have an amazing family, friends, career, & I don’t even know what I’d do without Ryan and Hayden! I plan on making my 30s even more amazing than my 20s, especially since I have all these fabulous life lessons tucked in my back pocket now that I’m so old and wise ๐Ÿ˜œ

What are these fabulous life lessons? Your in luck because that’s the whole reason for this blog post …..

HERES 30 THINGS I LEARNED IN MY 20

1. You are in charge of your life / the only person that’s in charge of the things you want/don’t want and is responsible for your happiness is YOURSELF! If your not happy, no one else playing a major roll in your life can really be.

2. Take the vacation / there’s always time for the day to day routine, it’s not going anywhere! Getting away & having a change of scenery with friends, family, or your loved one is something you never regret!

3. “Whatcha gunna do” / I adapted this life motto in my mid 20s, and let me tell ya it’s the freakin truth! When life throws you curve balls, big or small – guess what? It’s what you’ve been dealt! and guess what else? There’s absolutely probably not much you can do about it! Learn to roll with the punches + sit back and enjoy the ride! Life’s easier that way!!

4. Your mom is ALWAYS right / you grow up thinking this is bullshit. It is totally not.

5. The worst will get worse but the best will keep getting better / when you think it can’t get worse, it probably will – but then you’ll come out smarter, stronger, & a billion times better then you could ever imagine! Trust me.

6. A little kindness goes a long way / sometimes the smallest acts of kindness can make the biggest impression! Being intentional about treating others the way you want to be treated is a game changer!

7. Drama is exhausting, & so is being mean and ugly / it takes so much less energy to just be nice and it has a way better effect on your mood as well! drama is for the birds, I’d rather shoot it down and focus my time/energy on things that actually matter. I like to think I kissed drama goodbye in my mid 20s, and now you couldn’t even pay me to engage in it.

8. Looking your best will make you feel your best / having a bad day? Just add lipstick!

9. Be present / this is something I am still kinda working on! We’re always so busy planning for tomorrow, next week, next year. Sometimes when you block it all out it feels amazing to just live in & appreciate the moment happening right now!

10. Honesty is the best policy / the truth ALWAYS comes out, I don’t care how long you’d think it can go. It. Always. Comes. Out. Being honest from the get go is probably a lot easier & keeps you out of a lot of trouble!

11. Some alone time is the best time / moments to yourself are CRUCIAL! Get inside your own head a little & take a break from everyone else’s thoughts, needs, & wants!

12. What Sally says of Susy says more about Sally than Suzy / if someone’s being negative about you the problem that they have is more likely with themselves. easier said than done but you can’t take these things personally & kill them with kindness!

13. ALWAYS wear your sunscreen / skin cancer in your 20s is a real thing, been there, done that & have the scar by my eye to prove it!

14. When opportunity knocks answer the door / if you get an opportunity, big or small, go for it! Small things can lead to bigger things and sometimes taking on something you think you can’t handle brings you somewhere you’d never thought you’d be!

15. Gossip isn’t a good look / something I’ve learned in my later years! You never know who knows who & you probably wouldn’t want anyone gossiping about you!

16. Exercise is your friend / as much as you hate it, you gotta admitt …. you always feel better when your done! And when it becomes part of your daily routine your body + mind do better!

17. Support your sistas / I’m a huge advocate for women empowering women! There’s enough room in this world for everyone to succeed – we should build each other up instead of trying to one up each other! Congratulate each other’s accomplishments, compliment each other’s looks, & cheer each other on! And for the love of god help a sista our if she needs some direction or advice, you never know when you might need the same!

18. Give without expecting something in return / there’s fulfillment in sacrificing for others!

19. Pick your battles / not everything requires your attention! If its not life threatening, someone getting something major over on you, or something that’s not going to matter in a few days, it’s probably not worth the energy!

20. Quality over Quantity / this goes for lots of things in life – clothes, girlfriends, alcohol …. But seriously, with the girlfriends be thankful if you have a handful of good ones, these are the people who mater and deserve your time/attention. They will show up when it matters most and you’ll do the same for them!

21. Family is everything / literally these people are stuckkk with you! be grateful for them, they love & will be there for you like no one else!

22. Dating as an adult is FUN if you play your cards right / dating in my mid 20s was so different then dating when I was younger! I mean hello you know what you want/like and your secure enough in yourself to know the shots you want to call! The person taking you out can afford to go to nice places and they probably aren’t super needy because they have their own life + career going on too! I had an absolute blast dating and took the opportunity to discover even more what I wanted in a partner and what I didn’t! (Of course that all brought me to Ryan and I definitely love being with him more the single a thousand times over lol but you get the point) if your single, enjoy it!

23. When people show you who they are, believe them the first time / people are who they are. Don’t waste your time looking into it or thinking they will change, because it’s just that simple!

24. If something fails, it just means there’s something better coming / think about it, has this ever not been true! I thinks it’s almost proven! Always hold out for that silver lining!

25. Everyone has a love language, and you should know yours / knowing and understanding how you receive and give love will make all your relationships easier, with spouses, family, & friends!

26. Go to therapy, you probably need it / talking to someone completely bias can really be an eye opener to things or situations you could use clarity on!

27. EAT THE BURGER / life’s too freakin short! Enjoy the things you love!

28. Live life on your own timeline / this is something I am currently working on because people can put some freakin pressure on! They think because they just got married, or had a baby, or got a new job, that you should be too. This isn’t true because your not them and your situations special to you! what’s meant to be in your life will happen at all the right times so you just just enjoy the ride and experiences!

29. Show gratitude / to others & yourself! Be grateful for all you have + all that’s to come! There is so much to be thankful for in this life!

30. Just be YOU / your the only you in the world, and that right there should inspire you to be and give the best version of yourself to everyone! Embrace who you are in every aspect – be proud of yourself and your story! After all, we’ve all got one!

Amazon Top Picks

Hey y’all! Who else thinks that amazon is theeee bomb!? It took me a while to join the amazon prime world, but once I did I never looked back lol! Out of all the places to order from, amazon is always my favorite! They literally have EVERYTHING and it getting here in two days makes it even better!

I thought it would be fun to do a post on the things I order from amazon the most frequently or have ordered over again because I loved them + all the things that have been the most popular with y’all!

Let’s jump right in…

Breast Covers | $27

Okay, I know this is a weird first thing on the list but it has to be … I HAVE BEEN ORDERING THESE FOR YEARS! These are the best nipple covers (am I allowed to say that in here?) I have ever used. Most covers literally just cover the nipple, this makes them easy to show under a shirt with lost of fabrics. Since these are smooth silicone that go around the rounds of your breasts they aren’t ever seen! I normally get about 10-15 uses out of them. They are super easy to stick on and when I’m done with them I run cold water over them and let them dry over I before sticking them back to the paper!

Woven Summer Bag | $17

one of the top selling amazon things on my LIKEtoKNOW.it! You guys LOVED this bag! And when I wear it I get tons of compliments! Be aware it takes a few weeks to come in!

Brush Shampoo | $15

Brush Drying Rack | $18

Brush Cleaning Mat | $22

Another popular follower pick sold through insta stories to you guys – My favorite items for makeup brush cleaning! This makes the process so easy & quick! Plus the mat insures your cleaning your brushes that you spend good money on the correct way! For brush shampoo I either use the sigma cleaner listed, which I love! Or if I’m out I just use Tea Tree Hand Soap which is gentle on brushes and has other natural benefits! The brush drying rack is a MUST for me, I learned a while ago from a makeup artist that laying your brushes on the side or putting them in a cut bristles up is totally not good for your brushes. It makes the water sit at the bottom of the brush causing mildew and other bacteria eventually+ other things! Being able to hand the brushes bristles down insures proper/quicker drying!

Jelly Thong Sandals | $13

Just had to order for my second time. I wear these almost EVERY OTHER DAY to work. They have lasted about a year, I blame the needing new ones on wearing them so much and slipping them on without undoing the buckle because I’m lazy! This is a good buy if you need a easy sandal that will go with anything! I feel like the gold detail allows you to dress it up a pinch.

White Bohemian Tassel Earrings | $12

Pink Thread Earrings | $13

Both big earring favorites with you guys! Statement earrings are always a great way to add extra wow to an outfit!

Large Buckle Gucci Belt | $19

Thin Gucci Belt | $15

Y’all, I’m the first to admit. I own real stuff & fake stuff. This sista has real Gucci purses and fake Gucci belts! Why spend $500 when I can get it for under $20?! Hellllloooo! I personally don’t see a belt being worth $500 and I also think belts like this are a trend at the moment. I own the large in black, it’s actually considered a men’s belt and I ordered that because I wanted a larger buckle. We did have to add extra holes & it came with a tool to do so! Super easy! The thin Gucci belt I ordered in brown and black, this is very smaller and the “GG” is a little bit larger then the size of your jean button.

3 Piece Hard Case Luggage Set | $129

This also sold like crazyyyy!! This luggage set is amazing for the price and was a total copy of the calpack luggage my mom has for less then half the price!

Invisibobble Hair Ring | $9

My favorite pony tail holders! I order these time and time again, since pony holders always seem to disappear! Because of these being spirals they leave NO creases in the hair! Perfect for pony lovers & working out!!

Silplat Non-Stick Baking Mat | $17

Something Ive ordered a few times of the course of the years. This is amazing for baking, roasting and basically anything in the oven! It takes the place of foil or a pan & doesn’t require any spray! It’s my favorite for baking cookies, it gives you the perfect non-burnt bottom every time!

Bathing Suit Cover Up | $17

Y’all were OBSESSED with this bathing suit cover up! It sold like hot cakes & is something that continues to sell from the blog! It comes in tons of colors and I’d size down!

Sugar Bear Hair Vitamins | $33

A almost monthly re-order for me & the best/most effective hair vitamin I have ever taken. Click HERE for a full blog post & review on my experience with them.

Faux Fur Cuddler Bed | $34-$129

Price range depends on size! Y’all loved this bed for your pups! It’s neutral to match any room and is a smidge fancier then your regular ole’ dog bed!

PomPom Beach Hat | $16

Loved & received so many compliments on this at that I ordered a second color! I loved this hat because the buckle and pompoms make it not just your boring old beach hat!

Acrylic Eyeglass Display | $16

One of my smartest amazon buys & one of yalls favorites! The CUTEST way to display your glasses & the acrylic makes it match any type of decor!

Now THATS some good stuff huh?! At least I think it is pahaha! If y’all have any questions do not hesitate to ask! I’m always here to help if you guys need anything!

Recent Purchase

Happy Thursday people! Recently you guys mentioned in a poll I took on insta that y’all were ready for the fall clothes to start rolling in! I’m still not ready for summer to be over and know that here in Louisiana it won’t be getting cool till about late November lol! However when you find cute stuff at good prices you gotta jump on it!

This “recent purchase” post is a mix of summer stuff, work stuff, and some recent fall finds that I didn’t want to pass up! Scroll on to check em’ out!

Twisted Knot Dress | $28

Comes in 3 different colors, including white. This is a great dress to transition into/wear during fall. I bought this for work and think it’s a great price point for work attire. I’d wear with wedges/booties to dress up or flats to dress down! Fits true to size.

Chenille Sweater | $15

YALLLLL, fifteen dollars?! I literally can’t! Chenille sweaters normally sell for way higher then that – making this my favorite and smartest buy in this roundup! I bought both colors and it also comes in dark green. I sized down in this for a more fitted look then overly baggy!

Wide Leg Pants | $15

Another great deal! Can be worn year round, fits true to size!

Swing Dress | $13

I sized down for this because it’s more flowy!

Oversized Top | $10

Reminded me of a piko top for half the price. Can never have enough of these plain tops for work.

Braided Bootie | $35

So cute to be worn while transitioning into fall with some jean shorts and a sweater or during winter with jeans/leggings and a warm top! Great price point for the look!

Twisted Back Top | $19

Wool fedora | $20

Hats are going to be BIG this fall! Your already seeing them everywhere! For the price I purchased both in each color!!

Woven Mules | $60

Cute with jean shorts and a causal top or jeans to make more dressy!

Pleated Off The Shoulder Top | $30

True to size.

White Acrylic Earrings | $7.00

Ribbed High Neck Bodysuit | $16

the fabric of this is a little more warm! I love body suits because they are just a great basic you can wear tucked into anything! Comes in a more red orangey color and a mustard yellow! I always size up on body suits!

Thick Gold Hoop | $27

Posting these because I got a lot of questions about the hoops I had on the other day! The ones I originally got are sold out but these were great doups that won’t change color!

Open Back Active Tee | $10

This is a repeated purchase for me. This will be my second top like this! I love these to work out because they are loose fitted and flowy. Not sticking to you when your already hot! The open back I love for he same reason! Even if I’m just throwing it on with leggings and running errands it’s perfect for the hot weather!

5 Qualities That Keep Our Relationship Stong!

Hey y’all! Happy Wednesday!! I haven’t blogged in like a week I think!!!! That’s crazy, but last week was a pretty rough one so I decided to totally unplug and enjoy my weekend with the boys!

Speaking of the boys, today’s blog post is all about my boy! He’s a mannnnn, not a boy but you get the gist! Sometimes I get to thinkin’ about how lucky I am to have Ryan and thankful I am that we share the relationship we do!

I thought it would be fun today to share 5 qualities that I think keep our relationship strong! Of course these are things that work for our relationship specifically, everyone has their different things that work for them and different qualities that they look for/need in their own relationships! I know I always enjoy reading things or getting ideas that can better any relationships in my life or just better me as a person – so whether your in a relationship, single, married or whateverrrr, I hope all of you guys can relate to this post!

1. Being each other’s biggest supporters

We are always supporting & encouraging each other professionally and personally. I always want to see Ryan do/be his best and I know he does with me too! I want him to know I’m his biggest fan and will help him achieve anything if I can – even if it just means telling him how great he’s doing and being his cheerleader! If he’s asking my opinion for a job I always try to be 100% present in the conversation and think of the things that will be best or if I’m doing something for the blog and need help with a picture or an idea he’s always right there brainstorming with me or being the photographer pahaha!

2. Being accountable & understanding

At the end of the day me and ryan have always been in agreeance that neither of us is ever just wrong or right. We agree that neither of us are perfect and we take ownership for the things we say/do in our relationship. We admit when we’re wrong, even though that’s not always fun pahaha! we also always try to hear and be understanding of each other’s feelings/thoughts because it’s important to know where each other is coming from. This actually used to be such a hard one for me but I’ve realized life is so much easier when you can except and embrace your faults – sometimes we owe it to our partner or even any of our relationships to put our pride aside and keep it real!

3. keeping it fun

Before I started typing this we were actually upstairs playing Mario kart .. and no Hayden’s not even home tonight ๐Ÿ˜‚ this sounds silly (and obviously you don’t have to play a video game) but doing something fun and silly with your partner can keep you laughing together and bring on some friendly competition!! It’s nice to keep things light sometimes in a world full of stress! Ryan’s obviously the one that’s better at being silly then me, he constantly keeps my laughing!

4. Making big efforts in small ways

Sometimes the littlest things & smallest acts of kindness can show your love the most! Coming home to find a random thing I mentioned I needed or something done in the house we’ve been talking about always makes me feel good and shows me how much Ryan cares. I’ll try to do little things like leave a “I love you” post-it note on his desk or randomly have his favorite candy bar in the fridge. These may seem small and silly but it shows your partner you were thinking of them and took time out of your day to show it!

5. We share interests

Obviously Ryan’s a guy & of course we don’t share interest in ALL the same things. He could care less about what nail polish color I’m picking next, whats happening in the next bachelor episode or falls new “it” color! Even thought we don’t all the same things we still love doing certain things & have certain interests together! We both love anything home related – building, fixing up, or decorating! We love trying new things together, trying new things on the weekends, being adventurous on vacations & really doing anything outdoorsy with one another! It’s a healthy and important thing to be able to bond over new things & like interests and I’m so thankful we’re both good sports when it comes to that!

I think life when it comes down to it is all about relationships – what would we do without our parents, our siblings, our significant others, our children, friends, or even our coworkers? If a relationship is important to us it’s always good to sometimes sit down and think about the qualities you love or even maybe the things we need to work on!

I’m super thankful for all the relationships in my life because they all add something special here or there in their own way! And while we’re saying that I’m thankful for all my blog readers too & the friendships I get to make with you guys – even if it’s behind a computer!

– SHOP THE POST-

Sharing this book in the slider because itโ€™s honestly one of the best books Iโ€™ve read! I read it at a time when I was completely single and I think itโ€™s a good read for anyone at any age whether your single, in a relationship, or married!! It opens your eyes to the fact that we all want to be shown and receive love differently. What I think shows love and what my partner might think shows love could be two totally different ways and obviously understanding that can make a world of difference if you use the knowledge. I really think it had a hand in me understand relationships and becoming a better partner/understanding myself as a partner better!
