I had wayyyy too much fun creating this shopping collage for today’s post. If you aren’t already familiar with RedBubble.com, I suggest now is the time to do so because they have the most awesomewall decor, throw pillows, notebooks, phone cases and more all with your favorite prints, movie quotes, tag lines and pretty much anything your heart has desired…literally anything that popped into my head I typed into the search box and RedBubble had products matching the description <3
Naturally my favorites include…a ‘More Issues Than Vogue’ notebook + a Christian Louboutin inspired throw pillow 😉 But some of my colorful favs that are perfect for Back To School (crazy how it is right around the corner…I suppose since I have been out of school for a few years it’s hard to remember when exactly the season starts + it appears the prepping process starts sooner and sooner every year).
RedBubble actually sent me a few goodies which I am super pumped about because they are bright, colorful and instantly uplift my mood no matter what the day brings!
Oh hey what’s up hello…don’t you love this little mint dress I put on for show 😉 OK that was my attempt at raping hehe How did I do? :p If you didn’t already know, I am a HUGE rap + hip hop fan…it’s one of my many obsessions, along with shoes, bright colors and of course summer dresses like this mint pleated number from ShopTheMint.com! I love working with Shop The Mint because they seriously sell everything I wish to have in my closet…(ICYMI here are two other outfits I wore Shop The Mint for :: here + here)
Nothing makes me happier than testing out new hair and skin products by having my very own ‘spa day’. Since moving to LA from NY the change in climate has caused me to A) Break out yet get dry skin at the same time and B) Moisturize my hair and give it a little LA style refresh! Well luckily Dove came to my rescue with the best budget friendly hair and skin care options that you can find at your local drug store!
Dove sent me tons of awesome goodies that my roommate / photographer Ali and I had plenty of fun testing out :p Maybe a little too much fun…oops!
While I have pretty straight hair, the Quench Absolute collection was A) Perfect to add moisture and life back into my hair + B) Was perfect for Ali to use to style her hair (she has coarse curly hair so these products were a total life saver for her)! The shampoo, conditioner and styling products all smell delicious…so much so that I kept wanting to add more to my hair because although I achieved the style I was going for, I couldn’t stop sniffing it haha Don’t you love when drug store beauty buys smell way better than the super expensive products? #BestMomentEver
The Restoration Mask has been an absolute life saver for me. I love how smooth and shiny my hair looks after using it and it can be used as often as you want without overdoing your hair. The same goes for the Supreme Creme Serum, it can be applied to wet or dry hair and includes Glycerin to nourish the hair.
My skin has gone totally off track since moving. Some days it is clear and smooth and other days I am breaking out everywhere…so I tend to over dry my skin with toners + clarifying products to clear up the acne and in the interim I am leaving my skin craving moisture and hydration. The Dove Summer Care series provides a light and fresh feeling without making my skin oily while still providing the moisture my skin needs! It’s a win/win…and oh yeah…it smells amazing as well duh!
And then the last Dove product in my skin care arsenal? Dove Advanced Care deodorant! I actually keep it in my bag so I have it everywhere I go so I always smell fresh and feel clean. It offers 48 hour protection and even after a busy work day, still smells fantastic.
My Signature Style? A LWD (little white dress)! No matter what time of year it is, you will find me in some form of white…white jeans, a white blazer, white pumps and now…a white dress! As some of you may know if you follow me on Instagram + SnapChat (MissyOnMadison), I had a little girls trip to San Diego this weekend to head to the America’s Best Racing (the horse races) at the Delmar Race Track!
Between having the gorgeous track as my photo shoot backdrop and having a fantastic tour guide (thanks Jose) show myself and my friends around the track (we even got to meet the jockeys + pet one of the horses — the highlight of the day for one of my friends hehe) it was honestly one of the best experiences I have had since moving to California<3 The best part is when America’s Best Racing originally invited me to attend the races, they reached out to me to head to the track in NY…little did they know I had up and moved to LA so it was the perfect excuse to have a weekend getaway to San Diego (which was beyond amazing…I kind of wish I was still there right now).

Finding the perfect pair of jeans is far from easy…as I mentioned a few weeks ago, finding the ideal pair of jeans that flatter my body type has always been a challenge. They are either too long, too short, too baggy or too tight…I can’t win haha Well now I can…with Target Style!
Ever wonder how to get that perfect, flawless air brushed finish glow that you only seem to get when getting your makeup professionally done? Well I found a solution that is both affordable and actually works! Luminess Air! Now I am far from makeup savvy but the idea of getting flawless skin on the daily without having to pay insane prices seems like a win/win to me 😉

Finding the right jeans has always been a challenge for me. They are always either too short, too long, too tight, too loose or just all around not my style. Jeans shopping is one of the shopping experiences I have always tried to avoid. Me…avoiding shopping? Yes it is an actual thing that happens haha But I am pretty sure I found my perfect fit and it is Mossimo jeans from Target!
Target sent me a few pairs of jeans to try out for a couple of weeks and see if they are something that I actuallywant to wear every day and YES I grabbed these 3 pairs to wear pretty much all of the time. The Mossimo skinny jeans and jeggings hug my curves, show off my calves and are comfortable enough to run around in all day without feeling suffocated or agitated (a problem I tend to have with certain brands of jeans but not Target!).
My favorite pair (while I in fact love them all) was this light wash slightly distressed skinny jegging. I wore them while hanging around at Kristi’s on a Sunday and then also wore them out and about for brunch, work and even girl’s night! They can be styled in a variety of ways and I like cuffing up the bottom to change up their look.
My close second was this pair of Mossimo mid-rise medium wash skinny jeans. I think these are perfect for a night out…especially with an open back top like I wore below…got to show off that booty right 😉 These do in fact add a little ‘lift’ and are awesome ‘booty’ jeans in my opinion :p
