These past few months have been extremely stressful! There are various ways I de-stress and I thought this would be the perfect time to share a fun fact about myself: I LOVE to play video games! As someone who is constantly working on projects, playing video games is a way for me to disconnect from reality. I am so excited to be partnering with InfluenceHer Collective and Xbox to share how I connect and de-stress during game night! Please note that Xbox sent me this console to check out and all opinions are my own. #AD
It probably came as a shocker that I am a gamer. It is something I do not share often. I love how a simple gaming console can bring the best life experiences whether that is by yourself or with friends and family. Right now, my favorite Xbox game to play is Minecraft. I love the ability to build whatever you want, wherever you want. In a way, I have the creative freedom to let my mind imagine.
The new Xbox One S All-Digital Edition is an all-digital console with no disc drive, available for only $249.99. Fun fact: the disc drive was removed so consumers can save $50 off the price. Pretty fabulous, right? Also, no one wants to hoard a pile of discs when everything can be stored online. The console is light weight and only requires two chords to connect. I love the simplicity of the overall setup and how it can be stored without any hassle.
If you want a fun way to de-stress, I highly recommend getting yourself the new Xbox One S All-Digital console or just start gaming overall. I feel that the gaming industry receives a bad reputation, such as, it is for people who are not cool or people who are too lazy to do anything with their lives. However, I believe the exact opposite. Gaming is the perfect way to find more about yourself while having fun. I challenge you to turn off reality for a few hours and allow yourself to free fall into a game.
Thank you so much for reading! I hope this helped inspire you to de-stress in a fun way. Have a wonderful day!
A subtle metallic style piece is one of my favorite ways to slightly spruce up an everyday work outfit. It gives that shimmer without being too much in your face. I thrifted this light pink metallic top from thredUP. The original price was $24.00 and I bought it for $11.99. I love the pink with the cream dress pants because it’s a classy color combo that won’t have HR chasing you down the hall. Also, the sleeves are skin tight, which kind of feels like spanx for the arms!
My number one rule for wearing metallics is to not let it overpower the work outfit. Even though you may want to have it be the star of the show, sometimes it can come off as tacky. It should be a fun add-on, not a screaming piece that takes the attention away from the entire outfit.

For the month of May, Skylar sent over their new ‘Vintage Rose’ perfume. It is the perfect sweet, bubbly perfume for all my girly gals out there! I love the ‘Magic Bloom’ perfume sent to me last month, however, ‘Vintage Rose’ is more of my scent. I remember my sister sniffing ‘Vintage Rose’ and the first words that came out of her mouth was, “Yep, this is you”. Perfume is more than a scent, it is a sense of identity. I love that ‘Vintage Rose’ has become a part of my everyday story, especially since I can relate to ‘her’ story.
Skylar provides the best perfumes that are naturally made! I have tested out their Scent Club membership for two months now and my experience have exceeded all expectations. Each month, a new perfume is created and given a story to connect with consumers. “Vintage Rose” celebrates the friendship between two women who support one another through everything unconditionally.
If you love to try out new perfumes like me, definitely check out Skylar’s Scent Club to receive a new roller perfume each month. These monthly perfumes are limited edition. Make sure you either sign up to be a member or purchase the product before the end of the month. The last day to purchase ‘Vintage Rose’ is May 31st, grab one before it’s gone!
It is often a struggle trying to figure out a style outfit for work. One that will always be in your favor is a pant suit! The two-piece matching set continues to be a thriving trend from corporate to street style outfits. What I love about pant suits are the different forms and functions it comes in. You can wear it with a more masculine taste with the shoulder pads or add a feminine touch to it with fun floral prints. Pant suits are being redesign to cater to fashionistas who love wearing shorts or skirts over pants.
I thrifted this Ann Taylor pant suit for $20! If you want to hop on the pant suit trend wagon without paying over $100, definitely check out your local thrift store. You may be surprise on the style finds you’ll score.
For this look I wanted to add a feminine touch, which I did so by adding a beret and colors like red and pink. I love mixing different style elements to create an outfit story of my own. Pant suits can be styled in both a professional and casual way. I went with a more professional route adding a bow-tie blouse and heels. If you are more of a casual gal, a white t-shirt and sneakers would definitely be just as cute!
