Styling Velvet

Velvet Blazer  ($20!!) I also LOVE this one and this one! // Similar tank here and here // Jeans 
Similar Earrings here // Love these too! // Heels // Similar Bag

So never in a million years did I think I would be so in love with something velvet, but I am OBSESSED with this red velvet (my fav kind of cake lol) blazer from Lizard Thicket! It is a perfect standout piece if you're wanting to spice up your outfit. I also love to pop of lace up under the jacket to add a little sexiness to the look. It's easy to go overboard when wearing velvet, so I recommend pairing it with something simple, like an all black outfit like mine, or even a cute tee and jeans. I  

I'm planning on wearing this outfit for Valentine's Day this year (yes I know its like over 2 weeks away)! I have no idea what my boyfriend and I are doing but I know what I'm wearing so that's all that matters right?! I would love to take a mini road trip somewhere or go to a restaurant we've never ate at before! I love spending time together vs. buying each other gifts. 

Have a blessed week, y'all!

Current Makeup Routine

I have recently received a lot of questions about my makeup routine and how I'm able to create a natural, but full coverage look. So I decided I would share with y'all step-by-step my face makeup routine and all the products I use!

Bomber Jackets and Velvet

Velvet Tank// Jacket (similar) // Chocker 
I'm sharing one of my trendiest outfits today on the blog because lately I have been obsessed with bomber jackets! There are so many cute and affordable bomber jackets out there, and they are very versatile when it comes to outfits! At the bottom of this post I've linked some of my fav bomber jackets for women and also a few for the guys too ;) 

Sooo right as we were about to start this shoot, it started snowing! And pretty heavy snow too, so my photographer Ashton (my sister) and I had to make best with the weather! Luckily, my bomber and tank were both pretty warm so I was able to handle the cold better than I thought! Lol. Bomber jackets, velvet and chocker necklaces have been a few of the biggest trends  from 2016 coming into 2017. What I love about this bomber jacket is that I can throw it on for a more casual look or I could even pair it with a skirt for a night out! I will probably even pair it with some leggings and tennis shoes, because it works with everything! I think they also look great on guys too, so I've linked some below just  in case you and bae want to be stylin' together. 

It's been snowing the past two days here in Tennessee and I'm already over it because I hate the cold lol, but I guess that gives me a good excuse to forget responsibilities, curl up in a warm blanket and watch a movie?! 

Have a great weekend!

Looking Ahead in 2017

The much anticipated new year is finally here! I feel like 2017 is going to be a great but challenging year for me. This year I'll be graduating college after only three years, starting my first job, and will continue to work and grow my blog! I'm also hoping to plan a few trips for this year! 

2016 was a fun, hard and exciting year for me. I went on my first trip with my boyfriend (that's always exciting) to Chicago, had an internship at one of the news stations in my city, where I learned so much about being a journalist, started For the Love of Fun Blog (what you're reading right now (; ), went to New York City with my best friend, Kenzie, and so much more! It was a year of new experiences and and growth for me as a person. Now that 2017 is here, I am ready to continue to grow and learn as a person, and become the best version of myself! 

Instead of making resolutions, I've set goals for myself this year, that will hopefully turn into lifestyle changes. And the best way to keep myself accountable is by posting them on my blog and sharing them with y'all!

 Sooo here are my Top 10 Goals for 2017: 
1. Spend more time with God
2. Find a workout plan and get in the best shape I've ever been in
3. Thinking less about me and more about others 
4. Graduate :) 
5. Continue to grow in my relationship 
6. Put more thought and work into my blog 
7. Complain less 
8. Read more 
9. Worry less, take each day as they come 
10. Become more organized 

I wish you all the best with your goals and resolutions you've made for 2017! And thanks for taking a little time out of your day to spend reading  my blog! It means the world to me. 

Have a great week!
