What I Wore

Top Shop Blouse: Nordstrom Rack
Knit Jeggings: American Eagle
Franco Sarto Heels: Nordstrom Rack
Wooden Watch: JORD
Secret of Love Hinged Bangle: Brighton
Twinkle Necklace: Brighton

I haven't worn a watch in years but have occasionally browsed some that caught my eye while out shopping which has recently led me to think, "Maybe I should get one...". So when JORD (pronounced Y-O-O-D) contacted me asking me to style one of their wooden watches for them I was very eager and excited for the challenge. JORD is a fairly new company that was started by three brothers who were born and raised in St. Louis. While they do have a few jewelers who carry their watches in their hometown, they are best known as an online company. Like their watches, which are primarily made from 100% natural wood, their website is simple but modern and easy to use. You'll find a great selection of both men's and women's watches with various styles along with descriptive information about each watch to assist you in making the perfect purchase.

I chose the Elly watch in the maple finish. I felt the lighter wood and delicate features would be the perfect fit for my tiny wrist. Upon receiving my watch, I was pleasantly surprised by the way it was packaged. I think the way a product arrives at my door step speaks numbers about a company and I truly appreciate the special wood case it came with as well. The wood is firm but soft and comfortable to wear. It's also splash proof, which is a comforting feature, though obviously it should never be submerged in water. I also really like the nifty stainless steel clasp feature. You'll notice from my pictures that when the double sided clasp is closed it is completely hidden by the wooden band. I accessorized my watch with silver accessories from Brighton to compliment the features but not take away from the beauty of it. Some people might expect a wooden watch to only go with simple Spring and Summer outfits like shorts and dresses, but as you can see, it also looks fantastic worn with something a little more dressed up as well. I love my watch and am excited to continue to wear it throughout all seasons!

Wal Mart Beauty Box - Summer Edition

In case you haven't heard, Wal Mart has a Beauty Box that is sent right to your door once for every season. The boxes are only $5 each and often come with some good sample products. You can see what I got in my Winter box here and my Spring box here. Usually shampoos and conditioners turn me off instantly because I'm very particular about the ones I use, and I don't often use body washes that are sent to me, but I did get a few things in the Summer box that I'm excited about which you can see below...

Beauty Box 5: Alice in Wonderland Manicure | Style Through Her Eyes

It's been a while since I've given myself a manicure. But when this month's Beauty Box 5 box arrived I knew just what I wanted to do after receiving this beautiful blue shade by Nails Inc. called Royal Botanical Gardens. Would you believe that it applied a heck of a lot smoother and easier than Essie's blanc? I like Essie, but I find that the consistency of their formula is always different. Anyhow, if you couldn't tell already I went for an Alice from Alice in Wonderland look. I thought the Clearly Spotted Polka Dots polish by Maybelline would bring the two base colors together nicely. I figured if people didn't recognize the color scheme as Alice they would at least think Belle. If not, that's ok too. It definitely passes as a fun Summer look! The only thing I would've done differently is brush the polka dot glitter lightly on the tips instead of dabbing it on. It ended up being probably the thickest french tip I've ever done. Ah well, you live and learn!

Be sure to take a look at all the new nail art and polishes on the Nails Inc. website. You can also find their products at Sephora.

TRESemmé Volumizing Dry Shampoo Review

TRESemmé Volumizing Dry Shampoo Review | Style Through Her Eyes

It's been a few months now that I've been using TRESemmé's Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo. I initially picked this up because I had never used a dry shampoo before (I know, can you believe it!?) and was curious about how well they worked. I also thought the idea of my hair looking more full every day, as if I had just washed it, was a really fabulous idea.

So, after using it for some time now I can definitely say that I love it! It's super easy to use, there's no residue, and the smell is really nice but by no means overpowering. I wash my hair about every other day. The day of, I don't find this product necessary to use, but on the second and perhaps the third day (only if my hair doesn't need to be washed until the end of the day) I will use it and it makes my hair look fuller and softer, similar to what it would look and feel like after it's been washed and blow dried.

I focus using this product at the scalp and spray it directly at the roots on both sides of my head in two separate sections and once at the back of my head. After each spray you want to quickly massage it through with your hand so it properly blends and is able to absorb any oils that are there. Once you're completely done you can brush through your hair to make it look even more refreshed and revived. If you're going a third day without washing your hair, you can also spray it at the nape of your neck and near your ears for extra coverage. But please, if your hair needs to be washed, WASH IT! Dry shampoo shouldn't take the place of washing your hair less than you should. It's purpose is to make it look it's best in between washes.

This tiny but tall 4.3 oz bottle is only $2.49 at Target! I think it's absolutely worth trying and hope you'll let me know what you think if you decide to purchase it. Once this bottle is gone I'm going to try the Dove Dry Shampoo, which I've also heard great things about and will let you know which one I like better!

Do you currently use a dry shampoo? If so, which one? Tell me what you do/don't like about it.

Oh my goodness gracious! We are half way through the year already. Which means Summer is almost upon us and before you know it, Christmas will be here once again! But let's slow down a bit and focus on what made last month special shall we?

I took a trip with one of my lovely friends Genevieve to Fashion Island, an outdoor mall at Newport Beach which I hadn't been to in a long time. Everything is so beautiful there! We had a light lunch at this all natural and French-inspired cafe, Le Pain Quotidien. I ordered Avacado Toast which was delicious! We walked around, did a little shopping and discovered a darling macaron shop calle 'Lette. I can't even tell you how divine my salted caramel macaron tasted. I want to go back and try more flavors! We ended the day with a stop at Sprinkles. Genevieve hadn't tried their cupcakes or ice cream yet and I think it's safe to say she is hooked!

This is my third EOS lip balm! Sweet Mint is still my favorite but this Strawberry Sorbet is very nice too! If you've never tried them before, you should! They're super cute and easy to find when carrying around in your bag, plus they're organic! They're not the best lip balms ever but I think they do a decent job.

As you might know, May the 4th was Star Wars Day. To celebrate, Jason and I binged watched the Star Wars Rebels cartoon. We hadn't had the chance to see it yet and were very excited when StarWars.com had it available to watch for free over the weekend! This cartoon is geared more towards kids than The Clone Wars, if you're familiar with that show. It doesn't make it less enjoyable for adults though! Many fans absolutely love the show, as I do. Rebels takes place five years before A New Hope, a time where the Empire has taken over and all but a few Jedi exist. It was amazing to discover how much it felt like Star Wars with familiar sounds, music, references and quotes. There are also both new and familiar characters, planets and ships which is always exciting! Some of the character appearances really surprised me! I can't wait to find out what happens in the second season! Rebels and The Clone Wars considered canon and are part of the official Star Wars time line.

Remember my post on Disney Tsum Tsums? If so, you'll remember that these Japanese inspired plushies are being debuted on the first Tuesday of each month. Last month featured The Little Mermaid. Typically, I only get one or two from each collection. I'm very adamant about purchasing only the ones I love most. But I somehow came home with the entire set! It was chaotic in the Disney store and I found it hard to decide and so they all came home with me. *shrugs*

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I'll see you back here soon!

Think Of A Wonderful Thought

Think Of A Wonderful Thought | Style Through Her Eyes

Today I wanted to send a little encouragement and inspiration your way. I want this to make you smile like I am! When you're having a bad day or your anxiety is caving in on you and you feel like it's going to completely take over, stop and...

Think of a wonderful thought
Any merry little thought
Think of Christmas, think of snow
Think of sleigh bells - off you go!
Like a reindeer in the sky
You can fly! You can fly! You can fly!

Think of the happiest things
It's the same as having wings
Take the path that moonbeams make
If the moon is still awake
You'll see him wink his eye
You can fly! You can fly! You can fly!


"You Can Fly!" - Peter Pan

Thinking of whatever makes you happy is a natural medicine that can definitely work! I say "can", because it might not always work. In those cases, it's best to try other things that make you feel happy and safe. I feel many different things when I'm anxious. Some of those things feel like a huge weight pushing me downward or like I'm trapped in a small space. But when I direct my thoughts to something positive, I can feel my wings! And if I'm really successful, I feel like I can fly again!

Sometimes it comes easy, but there might be times when you have to tell yourself to think of a happy thought over and over again before it works. Don't give up so fast! If you begin drifting back to what it was that started the anxious feelings, you gotta think of something else until all you're thinking about are good things. Things that make you happy. I have found this especially useful lately when I've been trying to sleep. My anxiety has been getting in the way and it's been no fun. But trying to be positive by thinking about something happy (along with praying) really helps. I'd rather not be thinking about anything, but falling asleep to positive thoughts is so much better.

Together, we can #fightagainstanxiety ! Last November was when I first spoke about anxiety and after your responses, it inspired me to write more about it in a post called Overcoming Anxiety with Truth. I hope to continue to encourage you and make you feel less alone in this battle!

Tell me what you will think about the next time you're having a bad day or are feeling anxious! Let's give each other ideas! I will think about everyone that I love, the next event I am looking forward to and maybe a little bit of pixie dust. :)
