Today is….

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

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

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

Rocker graphic shirts –
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

Hammered Hoops –
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


Diamond Covet Pave 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


Stella Stacks Bracelets –   ***USE CODE TEN10 FOR 10% OFF***
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 
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 – 
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 –
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.

Drop a comment and let me know what you think!

Target Try On Session

All the tops from my recent Dressing Room session at Target. Some are on sale right now, some are regular price. But all are going fast and are must haves.

I now have tons of respect for people who do this and do this so quickly. I have been gathering links for HOURS!!! Actually, I will be extra dramatic and say DAYS!!!! Yes days. My computer is also super insanely slow and when it is 4am it starts to throw fits like a 2 year old without a nap. Which then led to my adult fit. So please, just click the links and know a lot of my sanity went into each blue link.

Happy shopping!

Dear Diary

“Dear Diary….”

Lol, just kidding. I am binge watching Vampire Diaries (for the 2nd time) and well into Season 4 and I swear every episode starts with those 2 words. Elena or Stefan are sitting on their window bench, face down, spilling out their hearts catching us all up on where we are now in their story.

You know what, that’s a good idea actually. Maybe I should start that way since this is my official 1st blog post. I need to catch everyone up on where I am in my story, right? So….

“Dear Diary,
A lot has happened since I last pretended to write in you. I lightened my hair, which is the opposite of what all the other girls do when winter hits. I like to think it is my rebel side coming out. I totally have been failing on my diet and workout plans, I promise I will get back to it… later. Let’s see, what else… Oh yes, I lost my job.”

{Errrrr! Slam the breaks. Reverse. What?!} Yep, it still said the same thing the second time you read that, huh? I know, shocker. But get this, I am actually excited. For awhile I have been wanting more. More of my family, more of me, and more of what makes me happy. Now I get my chance at all of that and more. My family is on board, friends are by my side, and I am excited. So, let’s pick up our jaws, raise our coffee cup, and drink to new beginnings.


Please subscribe to get your tickets for this crazy ride. I have no clue where we are going, I just know we are going. I plan to share all things that make me happy. I am easily entertained and get excited over small things. I love all things fashion, which does not mean I am an expert, but I sure shop like I am one. I love to give my opinion and I love even more when someone actually trusts me enough to take my opinion. I love to try new things and push my way out of my box.

Y’all get excited with me and share any and all thoughts.
