Clothes And Accessories Haul.

Hello, Beautifuls!!!! How have y’all been? Your girl has been eating, tanning, and shopping! It’s been a great vacation so far. I’ve been in Florida for about a month now and have only a month left until I head back to good ol’ Japan. Since, I’ve been here I’ve been shopping a bit, if you would like to see what new makeup I bought you can check out my last post. This time I’m going to share some of the clothes and accessories I’ve accumulated since I’ve been here, it hasn’t been all in one trip and some have been bought for me by my mom or my baby brothers. I will also share some of the stuff Jason has gotten in another blog.

We’ll start off with some accessories, one of favorites is a ring my sweet baby brother bought me. It’s from pandora and it’s soo flipping pretty!!! I mean look at it!

The next accessories are a bit more affordable. I love my luxury items, but what I love even more is a good sale! Who doesn’t? I have no shame in telling you I got this on sale. I’ve been obsessed with headbands for a couple months now and I found this cute champagne glittery headband for $3! It’s so me! My other favorite purchase was the Mickey Mouse phone case, I love Mickey and I love phone cases so, I couldn’t pass it up especially for $2.

The final accessory is a cute square handbag I found at Ross for $10. It’s a blush and cream color with a gold chain. It’s small but, it can hold a lot.

This is not much of an accessory, but it’s another gift from my baby brother. It’s a Minnie Mouse iPad case, so cute!

Now moving onto clothes! My mom bought me these pieces from American Eagle, my favorite season is fall and I this outfit screams fall to me. Yes, I’m already thinking about fall, summer isn’t really my jam so, I’m ready for cozy crisp days. The skirt also gives my clueless vibes, on of my favorite movies!

The other piece my madre bought was another skirt. I will wear skirts and dresses all year long, nothing some knee high boots can make cozy and warm.

I also found this cute ivory colored dress on sale for $20 in American Eagle. It’s always a good time when you find something super cute on sale!

These next two dresses I found on sale as well at Abercrombie and Fitch. I’m telling y’all I love me some sales. Both dresses were $20, one is a yellow lace dress, super cute for the summer time. The second dress is a cute wrap dress, I can’t wait to wear it in the fall but, can also be worn in the summer.

These three items are from different places. The green romper is from Walmart, it’s so soft and comfortable and it was only $13! Walmart is really stepping up their clothes game. The off the shoulder shirt is from a little boutique and the shorts are from Old Navy.

Lastly, I want to show y’all the red vans my other baby brother bought me. Lately, I’ve been loving the color red, they look so cute with some shorts or jeans and a tee for a casual day.

Thank you for reading! Hope y’all enjoyed my haul!

Girls Trip Here We Come!

Hello Beautifuls! I am full of excitement as I finish packing for my first ever girls trip! My nugget bestie and I will be going to Osaka. It’s another big city here in Japan, I’ve never been before and the excitement is overwhelming. This will be the first time ever I go on a trip without my hubby or baby boy. I’m excited to have some me time but, I know for sure I will be thinking about them every second of the day.

Besides missing my family and possibly having a little separation anxiety, lets get into what I’m packing.

Starting off with some toiletries, got me my tooth brush, tiny toothpaste, tiny face wash, tiny lotion, and my perfume. I had to go through my list a couple times to make sure I had everything. Obviously, I can’t go anywhere without my makeup. To keep it somewhat light I’m taking my JH eyeshadow palette instead of taking three other ones. This pallet has every color shade I need for my outfits. It can’t be my makeup routine without the Charlotte Tilbury highlight. Also, a few new things I will talk about in another post.

Moving onto the outfits I’ve packed for my kid free trip. I emphasize on it being kid free because my outfits and paired with shows that are not meant to chase a toddler so, I’m taking full advantage and wearing my heels! Woot woot!

First outfit is for our first night, dress is from target with my knee high boots and my trench coat from GU.

Second outfit is a gorgeous dress I found brand new at our local thrift store. It’s so flattering and flowy it’s the best dress ever pairing it up with my black wedges.

Third is a more chill look both the Friends shirt and high waisted black jeans are from target and pairing it with my adidas sneakers.

Last outfit is a blush duster I got at forever 21 wearing it with a grey shirt from GU and my favorite jeans ever from the MCX and my blush heels are from target.

I’m so excited to share my upcoming adventures with y’all. Talk to y’all soon!!!

All Things Lux.

Hello Beautifuls and Happy Monday! May your coffee be strong and your Monday be short. Haha. I’m starting this amazing Monday with a little luxury haul and thought it would be cool to share some of my goodies with y’all. I don’t know about you but, Whether it be from the dollar store to luxury. I love me a good haul. So, let’s get on to the good stuff.

For the longest time, I’ve been playing it safe when it comes to makeup. What does that mean? It’s means all I would buy and feel comfortable in was nude or pinkish lipsticks. But, ever since Christmas time when I took the risk and tried a bold red lip, I’ve been hooked. So, it was inevitable that I would have to add a classic Chanel red lipstick to my collection. I’m obsessed with this, it’s moisturizing and bold. I love it! There’s a shade of red for every girl.

Following the Chanel love is this Megan Hess Fashion Book. Megan Hess has the most beautiful books on fashion. They are definitely something to add to either your library, coffee table, it’s just a beautiful addition to anything. I will for sure be buying more of these books. But for now I just have the Coco Chanel.

Moving on to a very heart breaking little haul. This was a bittersweet purchase, I just can’t believe such an iconic store is no longer around. I remember watching Sex and The City and seeing those iconic brown and white stripes or for more relatable reference, hearing the name on Gossip Girl. Okay, enough of the sadness on to the glorious stripes.

Ugh! Even the shipping boxes had the stripes. I was very happy that I was able to get a few things from Bendels before it closed. Of course, I had to get something that had the famous brown and white stripes, and since I’m obsessed with phones case and small wallets, I couldn’t help myself to get these two things from good ol Henri Bendels.

And finally, the last thing is of course another wallet and phone case. Haha. I know it’s addiction. So here’s my new Kate spade wallet with matching phone case. This is the coolest thing ever. The phone can attach to the wallet and not fall out. And being a mom, I sometimes don’t want to carry my handbag around so this is perfect for a quick trip to the grocery store or daiso. Haha.

Valentines Day Outfits.

Hello Beautifuls! Valentine’s Day is 6 days away, I know romance shouldn’t only be one day but, it’s nice to have a reason to get dolled up and go out. So, today I’m giving y’all some ideas on outfits you can wear for this special romantic day. I will probably be celebrating Cupid’s day with my amazing husband before or after the day. Places will be extremely busy this day and being as we are in a foreign country and we aren’t very adventurous with food, I’m pretty sure the places we like will be packed. So, let’s get into some of these outfit that if you check my last post on makeup looks you will see which makeup look goes with the outfit.

This outfit is for a more chill and relaxed date. Probably the outfit that I will be wearing since I have to be running after a toddler, who has the quickest little feet ever! Even though, you gotta be able to chase a toddler doesn’t mean you can’t get all cute and dolled up. Here I’m wearing my favorite pair of jeans I bought at the MCX and my favorite bodysuit, also from the MCX. It’s a little chilly here in Japan. So, I topped it off with this pure cardigan from Forever 21 and my grey Ugg’s. Warm and cute.

Next outfit is probably one of my faves. Sweater and skirt are from H&M and can still be found online, btw. The knee high boots are from Target. This is super girly and still quite warm and somewhat comfortable to be able to be able to chase a toddler. This is a very Blair Waldorf inspired look and I’m here for it.

The last look is very sexy and boobalicious. This is absolutely not a toddler chasing approved outfit. But, dang I was feeling myself in this outfit. You can’t go wrong with a little black dress. The dress is from Kenneth Cole and the Cardigan is from a store here in Japan called GU. Completed the look with some heels I got from target and some pearls. So here is my glam bam sexy look.

So, there are my three Valentines Day outfit ideas. Which one was your favorite?

Favorite Fall Outfits.

Hello beautifuls! Hope y’all had a great Thanksgiving with family and friends. We had a not so traditional Thanksgivings here in Japan. We were feeling a little down this year, it’s not easy being away from family around the holidays and I think this year it really hit us hard. We only have a year and a half left and it can’t come fast enough. So, for our Thanksgiving we went to Hiroshima and did a little shopping and ate out at a restaurant we’ve gone once before. It wasn’t the traditional thing to do, either way we had a good time and all that mattered was that we were together.

Now, that thanksgiving is over, we are fast approaching my favorite holiday of all, Christmas! In my home Christmas arrived the day after Halloween, meaning my decorations have been up since the first of November. There are still some thing I’m waiting for to come in and once they come in I’ll be doing a post on decorating for Christmas. Since, fall is over, well for me any. Haha. I wanted to show y’all some of my favorite fall outfits.

At the beginning of this year one of my goals was to step up my wardrobe and somewhat step out of my comfort zone. So, far I’ve been happy with my wardrobe, I can only hope that it will get better! Let’s get onto the outfits, shall we.

The first outfit is a purple tunic from forever21 with my Lily Pulitzer cardigan paired with basic black leggings and burgundy booties. Simple, yet cute.

Next outfit is one of my more comfortable outfits and a matching one with my squishy face. It was cute and comfy for our trip to the zoo. My rust color jacket is from target and wore some burgundy pants from the MCX and of course, what is comfort without uggs?

The following outfit is probably one of my favorite ones, ever! I have been seeing the animal print trend going around and I was scared on trying it but, I took the jump and went for it. No regrets! I absolutely love this look. All the pieces besides the top are from target, including my heels.

My last look was my thanksgiving outfit. Besides the previous look this one is also one of favs. Again, my coat is from target, the sweater is from a Japanese store called GU, the skirt is from forever21 and my booties from the MCX.

That’s all for my favorite fall looks. See y’all soon on my next blog!

What I Got For My 25th Birthday.

Hey there beautifuls! As, y’all read from the title, I turned 25 on the 14th of this month. I thank God everyday for blessing me for another year. Each year I learn and grow as a person, whether it be as a wife, a mom, or an overall person. I’m extremely blessed to have been surrounded with my beautiful little family and great friends. They really made this birthday a great one, if it wasn’t for them I probably would’ve been in a ball crying and searching for the best eye cream there is. I know I’m just being dramatic but, in 5 years I’ll be 30, like whattt!?!? I know I’m going to blink and those years will fly on by. By then, I’ll get it together and just think about being “Thirty, Flirty, & Thriving.” Unlike the movie I won’t go back to being 13 years old with just a little bit of pixie dust. But, I sure don’t want to go back to being 13, UGH! Those are some cringeworthy years. Am I right? Anyway, let’s get to what I got for my birthday.

This year I was extremely spoiled by my husband, my parents, my friends, and myself. My amazing husband was not able to be here for my birthday, it was the first time he missed my birthday, but you know that’s the life of the military wife. He went all out like he always does and bought me a Louis Vuitton wallet to match my speedy. It’s absolutely gorgeous and I’m so grateful for having a husband this amazing. Now, onto what I spoiled myself with. I felt like this year was a treat yourself year and that’s exactly what I did. I was able to spoil myself and I bought two things. A Louis Vuitton phone case and something that was on my dream board for sometime, what is it you may ask? Well, they are gold Chanel earrings! I’m so excited that I was able to buy these for myself. I mean look how gorgeous they are!

The next things I’ll show y’all, my parents and friends got me. My parents were sweet enough to send me a bunch of fall decor and a Longchamp, the decor isn’t pictured, because I was too excited and put them up. My bosses gave me a Fitbit, which I was so excited about, I have an Apple Watch but I just forget to charge it everyday and I don’t have to charge the Fitbit for a couple days. Yay! My nugget bestie kept me from having a meltdown about not having my hubby with me for my birthday, she really kept me together. She took me to get a cardio workout by shopping and gave me the cutest gift. She took me back to my Claire’s days and gave me a BFF koala necklace and some yummy macaroons from our favorite bakery. Finally, my amazing, Disney loving, my Serena to my Blair friend, sent me this cute backpack that is very popular in Japan, oh yes, she now lives in Japan too, but in a different part of Japan. I’m truly blessed to have amazing and loving parents and friends.

Favorite Summer Outfits.

Hello beautifuls! It’s hump day y’all, another week is almost gone and in just a few days the month will be gone. Speaking about months flying by, my favorite season, fall is almost upon us. For some people fall starts September 23rd, but for me it start August 31st. I like having my home decorated the first day of September.

Since, the summer is coming to an end for me, I just wanted to share some of my favorite summer outfits. I was very fortunate to have been in the sunshine state for most of my summer. For some reason I get inspired to step up my style when I’m in Florida, it can be the beautiful style the people have there and the people places that inspire me.

My first outfit is a romper/dress from American Eagle. It’s such a cute and summery piece. Not many rompers look cute, but this totally takes the cake. On top of it being super cute, it’s totally practical for being a mom chasing after a toddler.

Now, this outfit makes me really happy. I mean how can I not be happy when I’m wearing rose gold Minnie Mouse ears. My shirt is from a Japanese store called uniqlo, which is now in the states and it made me smile to see a similar store and the shorts are from aerie. Paired my cute ears and outfit with some Jack Rogers sandals.

On to my chilling on the hammock outfit. Besides the cardigan and the jacks, this outfit came from the MCX, the store on base. This outfit was comfortable and chic. I had to be comfortable for a little shopping spree I had with my best friend and at the same time not die of a heat stroke.

This is a little more of a risky outfit but I love it. The outfit is from aerie, when I was trying these pieces on at the store I thought it would look ugly, but I felt great and felt confident.

img_0205

The white dress with flowers and the mustard polka dot dress are both from my favorite store, Target! I’m excited to transition the polka dot dress into fall and pair it with some booties.

The last dress I bought for less than a dollar, how you may ask? Well, I found this gem at the thrift store I work at. This was brand new with tags and it was a piece I couldn’t pass up. It’s not something I would have ever thought of wearing but, I’m trying to step up my wardrobe and this screamed summer.

I hope you all liked my outfits, which one is y’alls favorite?

Shopping Is My Favorite Sport.

Hello Beautifuls! I’m back from my much needed vacation. Missing the sunshine state and my family like crazy, but it was time to come back to reality. This mama needs to recover from all the shopping that was done. It’s been a while since I’ve done a monthly favorites due to my constant shopping and well, looking for new things to try. To say I went a little crazy when I was back in the states would be an understatement. But, I don’t get to shop like this here in Japan, so I took full advantage. Also, let’s not leave Jason behind, he sure did some damage too. Haha. That little boy can shop! He learned from the best. So without further ado here are some of my new goodies!

Let’s start with some of the goodies Jason got. Like I said before, the boy knows how to shop and he sure is spoiled. Half of my suitcase was packed with his stuff and his clothes are tiny! This is a small portion of everything he got. I love the store Janie and Jack, they sell the cutest clothes and it’s totally the style I go for when I dress him. Since, he has everyone wrapped around his little cute fingers, he managed to get some Sperry’s out of one of his uncles. He even wore them out of the store like he’s all that.

Look at him strut his stuff!

Now, on to my new purchases. I really enjoyed going to the outlets, that’s where I bought this cute pink coach purse with a matching wallet for a whopping $100 for both things, talk about a good sale.

I don’t know about anyone else but, I love planners and phone cases. So, while visiting Disney Springs, formally known as downtown Disney, I picked up this cute planner for the new year and my new favorite phone case ever! It has Minnie Mouse, it can’t get any better. As, for the Alex and Ani bracelet, my sweet baby brother got me this. Ain’t he the sweetest? The little mermaid and the donut Mickey head are from uniqlo USA, we have a uniqlo here in Japan so, it was pretty cool to see a store I knew back home. And lastly, I was finally able to get my hands on the Walt Disney World rose gold jersey, I have been wanting to buy this from the first day it came out. Y’all I was like a little kid on Christmas Day!

I will be doing a post soon about the new makeup I bought back home, I sure got some good stuff. I hope you all enjoyed. See y’all soon!

My Name is Yaneysi and I’m a Shopaholic.

Happy Friyay, beautifuls! I can’t believe I’ve been in Florida for two weeks already, time sure likes to fly by when you’re having fun. Go figure. As, I sit poolside writing this post, I can’t help but be so grateful of how blessed I really am. These pass weeks have been filled with laughter, family love, and lots of shopping, A LOT OF SHOPPING. Not only have I been preparing for my baby boy’s second birthday, but I’ve been taking full advantage of being back in the land where there’s a Target and a Sephora! I’ve been deprived from these places for about a year and a half. It’s a tragedy! So, you can say I’ve been going ham ever since I got here. Just strolling the aisles at Target and having my arm full of swatches at Sephora have been magical. I always do a monthly favorites but, instead I thought I would do a haul of what I’ve got so far. I’ll go by categories from accessories to stationary.

Let’s start of with what my parents got me for Mother’s Day, I got here two days after Mother’s Day but it still counts. My amazing parents got me a Tiffany’s mini heart necklace and Mickey and Minnie kitchen decor. SO CUTE. They are the best.

Now on to the haul, I’ll start with accessories. Target and junk food did a Disney collab its amazing and luckily I was able to get my hands on a few things. I had to contain myself and not buy everything in sight, the struggle is real. Here are a few things I got, some are still available in store and online.

Being back in the states means you can try on clothes without feeling like a fat cow. I love Japan, but their stores aren’t big butt and big hip friendly. So, it was obvious I would buy some cute clothes. I haven’t gone too crazy since I’ve got a party to pay for in a week. But, I couldn’t help myself buying these cute dresses and romper at Target. You can find these online and save 20% off the two dresses.

I knew coming home I would go shopping so, I didn’t bring a lot of shoes. Besides missing Target and Sephora, I’ve missed the discounts store like Marshall’s and TJMaxx . I can always find something good, that something good this time are these cute Jack Rogers sandals for $50! Like Oh My Gosh! I’ve been on the hunt for cute strappy heels and Target came through with these blushy pink heels. I’m obsessed.

On to my favorite thing, makeup! I’ve found my new favorite foundation, my brother was sweet enough to buy me the NARS foundation for Mother’s Day. If y’all go back to my favorite makeup products you’ll see I have the tarte shape tape concealer, let’s just say I scraped and scraped every bit I could till I could get a new. It can now rest in peace in makeup heaven as I got a new one. The other two products are kind of an impulsive buy, but I have no regrets. I never do when it comes to makeup. Lol

Finally, there is no way anyone can go Target and not get pulled in to the dollar section, if you say you can walk right by it, you’re a whole lie. I know I can’t just walk by, so I got a few cute stationary things and pool necessities. I means it’s only $1-$3. Oh let’s not forget good old Walmart, who is really stepping up there game. I picked up some cute cases for my phone and iPad, super cute and cheap. I was sure surprised to see Kendall and Kylie cases, I love the Kardashian/Jenner Klan, I found a cute case with a matching pop socket, tots cute. The last thing is the rose gold phone case wallet I got at charming Charlie’s, another store where I had to contain myself, it’s so esthetically pleasing. Long story short, Florida is a dangerous place for me and credit card. Lol

Sassy Sister’s

Hello Beautifuls! It has been a hot minute since I have posted. What can I say? Life got to me. Between being a mommy, wife, student, and an employee, it has been quiet the ride. Now, I have always done school and worked full-time, but I didn’t have a toddler running around making leaving the house on time impossible or when you’re in the middle of writing an essay and he wants some a loving from mommy, making me lose my train of thought. But, I’m getting through it and I’m on my last week of school and I can’t wait. I will be taking a little time off, because I don’t want this stress while visiting my family in Florida.

But, enough of my struggles let’s get into this special post. This is my second feature on my blog, if you would like to check out my last feature go ahead click on the link Double The Cuteness. It is about my cousin and her life with twin boys. This time I got the privilege to interview these three amazing, sassy, and fashionista sisters, The Nettes Make sure you all check out their blog, its amazing, if you’re a shopaholic, you’ll love their blog for sure!

img_7027-1

These three awesome sisters names are Raenette, Antionette, and Anjanette. I just love their names, they are basically the southern version of the Kardashians. Haha! I’m very happy they took out some time out of their busy schedules and shopping trips to answer a few questions I had.

Q1: When did y’all start blogging?

A: I guess by now you know we started our blog in November but didn’t shout it to the world until December.

Q2: Why did y’all decide to start your blog?

Raenette: The blog was really my sister Antoinette’s idea. She was always looking at different blogs & she said, “hey, we can do as good as these chicks” and here we are! Lol! Plus, most blogs are geared towards younger folks & we wanted to show folks that you can look stylish no matter the age. 

Antionette: We started the Blog because we thought it would be a fun way to share our love of fashion and shopping with others. We have always loved putting outfits together, so we figured maybe we could make a go of it. We also wanted to show 50+ women that they can still look hot and stylish and not spend a fortune. 

Anjanette: Started it bc we wanted to share our love of fashion with others. And to let everyone know that it’s not hard or really that time-consuming to look pulled together.

Q3: What is it about fashion that y’all like?

Raenette: I like fashion because it lets me express myself in many different ways. I can’t draw or paint or sew or play an instrument so, fashion is my artistic outlet. What you may be hiding on the inside, you can express through clothes & accessories.

Antionette: I love the way an outfit can express how you’re feeling on any given day. An outfit can show the world “Hey, I’m feeling super sexy today”. Or “Hey, I’m feeling Casual today”. I definitely use fashion to express myself.

Anjanette: What I like about fashion is that it is a creative outlet. It’s a way to stand out and make a statement.

Q4: Who is the inspiration for your style:

Raenette: My mama was my #1 fashion inspiration. When I was younger I used to get a lot of inspiration from magazines & tv. Now, I most of my inspiration comes from friends & family & the general public. 

Antionette: My main fashion inspiration will always be my Mama. I too love and admire Victoria Beckham. She’s so classic and badass at the same time. I have always loved Audrey Hepburn as well. 

Anjanette: Fashion inspiration of course was Mama and I love Victoria Beckham. Classic.

Q5: Who is the more stylish sister?

Raenette: Anjanette is the biggest risk taker for sure. We’re all fashionable in our own way. I guess it’s in the eye of the beholder.

Antionette: Anjanette is definitely the most daring when it comes to fashion. We are all fashion divas! Lol

Anjanette: And we ALL know which sister is the most stylish!! ME!!! Lol

I’m so happy I got to interview these ladies, they sure are a hoot and most importantly extremely inspirational! They are amazing in every way and are kicking ass in fashion and in life. They are an example that there is no limit in what you can do no matter what size, age, or color! They make me wish I had sisters to go on shopping adventures and steal each others clothes. They are sister goals! Thank you dolls for being a guest on my blog! Make sure you follow their blog Nothing But Nette.
