Shopping Simplified ft. Isis Wallet

I participated in an influencer activation program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Isis Wallet. I received a promotional item to facilitate my review.

There have been times in my life when I wonder how I ever survived without a smartphone. I only started using a smartphone in 2011, and in these past short few years, I found myself being more organized and more productive. As if smartphones aren't already smart enough, on top of all of the amazing things you can already do with your smartphone, you can now use it as a wallet.

You don't need to carry a planner around anymore because your smartphone acts as one. You don't even have to carry a computer around anymore! Now with brand new technology you don't need to carry your wallet anymore either. Well, your cards at least.

What is this sorcery innovation?

Review: Dove Advanced Care Deodorant

I participated in an influencer program on behalf of Mom Central for Dove. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

I have previously reviewed the Dove Advanced Care Deodorant in Revive and Nourished Beauty. You can read the review here.

I have used the product for more than two weeks since I published my review, and my verdict still stands that I love this product. I still think that I have found the holy grail of deodorants.

My June Closet

Hello, world.

It appears that my September and April closet posts garnered a lot of attention, so I will officially be making it its own series! On the first day of every month, I will post lookbooks of outfit ideas for the month.

This month, instead of creating the usual Polyvore collages, I will include a few examples of each trend along with a brief description of how you can work them into your own closets. I would love to hear your thoughts on which format you prefer!

Without further ado, here is my June closet!

{ Colorblock Dresses }

The Summer is all about colors, so why stick to one when you can have three? A dress is also the easiest way to look put together without too much effort because you just slip it on, and you'll be ready to leave the house!

{ Maxi Skirts }

I am so glad that the maxi hemline is back in trend. It is so versatile! I've been wearing maxi skirts and dresses for a night out in place of mini skirts and dresses and shorter hemlines because they're so figure-flattering and classy. They're also casual enough to wear to class. For ideas of tops to pair with maxi skirts, read my Ebay guide to wearing maxi skirts.

{ Sheer Blouses }

Sheer blouses may look trashy and slutty to some people, but I honestly think that they're amazing because they are the easiest for day-to-night transitions. For the office, you can wear a tank top underneath the sheer blouse so that you're not showing an inappropriate amount of skin. After work, before you leave for margaritas with the girls, take off the tank top to reveal the lace bra or tube top that you can wear underneath your tank top.

{ Strappy Sandals }

Behold, the queen of all Summer shoes! Unlike other shoes, strappy sandals don't make your feet sweat in the heat. They're also super cute and go with anything casual you could possibly want to wear.

{ Cutout Dresses }

        Asos Cutout Skater Dress | $53.35

I want to point out that that Missguided dress is the ultimate combination of the trends mentioned in this post. It has the color for Summer, it has the maxi hemline, and it's a cutout dress! Cutouts seem to be everywhere these days, but I still prefer them on dresses because they make even the most mundane of dresses look playful.
