First I would like to say, “hello there stranger!!!”, to myself! Man, it has been a hot, hot minute since I last punched these keys. But!!!! I am here and that is all that matters, right? 😉
So, today is the best day ever! Why??? Well, besides the fact that y’all are getting to finally hear from me again, duh, but it is the day I was born. I won’t tell you how long ago, but it was not recent for sure, lol. It’s MY BIRTHDAY!!!!
Usually days leading up to your birthday you get the repeated question “what do you want for your birthday?”. I can never think of things when put on the spot, so I always say, “Oh, just whatever” or the go-to “I don’t need anything”.
So, to help us all be more prepared for when your birthday rolls around, or when you have some extra bucks to spend on yourself, I created this list. You are welcome. 🙂
I wanted to share a few things that make me happy and put a little extra pep in my step.
My Favorite Things from Styled by Mowad
1. Apple Watch Band
I get so many compliments on this watch band all the time. I love that I can wear it while working out and when I get dressed up. It goes with so much of the clothing I wear and makes my workout attire look better. But the best part, it’s under $10!
2. iPhone Square Case
This phone case I first saw on a friend’s phone. It totally confused me b/c of the shape and I was intrigued. “What new phone was this?!” No new phone brand, just a different shape case. So I bought this and get the same reaction from everyone I gave my friend. It even comes with the matching ring holder thingy. (That did take getting used to b/c I had the pop socket before, now I wouldn’t go back to a pop socket.)
3. Graphic Tops
Give me all the vintage, rocker, graphic tees/tanks out there! The more the better. I love to go for an edgier look any chance I get. This huge trend right now makes it sooooo easy. Pair it with some destroyed denim and fun heels and you are good to go! Don’t forget to check out the kids section too. You may be surprised when you fit into the kids XL tee. And while you are roaming out the women’s section, head over to the men’s. Just size down!
4. Hammered Hoop Earrings
I am going to say it… I have never been a fan of big hoop earrings. They always reminded of the Bon Qui Qui skit. But someone call “sa-curity” b/c I wear these Stella & Dot
hoops on the daily!!! They are so light weight I forget I even have them in my ears. They go with every outfit and every hair style. THEY ARE A MUST!!!
5. Diamond Initial Necklace
I want you to know I NEVER TAKE THIS OFF! Unless the doctor or nurse tell me to, I do not. I workout in it, I sleep in it, I shower in it, I go to the beach in it, I go to the pool in it. I never take it off. It is hands down the best necklace I have and layers beautifully with everything.
6. Stella Stacks Bracelet

If you have to get one thing from this list, this is it. I found this maker on Instagram a few years ago when I saw one of her bracelets with the large coin and fringe. I had to have it. The quality, communication, and service was so amazing I quickly became a huge fan and now have more than I can wear. Check her out and use my code to get 10% off. You will not be sorry!
7. Dipped Nails
Dipped Nails – View my Pinterest Board of all my favorite looks http://bit.ly/2xdjXdF
Do I have to explain why this is a favorite? Having strong durable nails that the color doesn’t chip away after the first day is just perfect. I love changing out color combos and it just makes my hands look better.
8. KanCan Jeans
KanCan Jeans – https://amzn.to/2J6MgQG
These jeans I found years ago and it is seriously the only brand in my closet! They fit my curves perfectly, the pockets sit on the booty in just the right place to make that peach look good, and the designs are so trendy and on point. If you haven’t tried a pair, you are seriously missing out.
9. Amazon Prime
Amazon Prime 3-month gift – https://amzn.to/2YgY2yb
I know this one seems silly, but I love having Amazon Prime! Prime is not only about ordering from Amazon and getting it faster. You can instantly watch thousands of movies and TV episodes, Borrow Kindle books, and Get unlimited FREE two-day shipping (no minimum order size). Plus there is a Prime Day coming up and who doesn’t like to be a VIP in a members only Day???
That is just a few of my favorite things. Pretty much everything I don’t leave the house without.
