Remember how I wore my favorite black jeans pretty much non-stop all winter? Well, I think these black shorts are going to take their spot for the summer. I’m going to go ahead and assume that’ll be wearing these at least once a week on the blog and probably several times a week in real life. I tried Read More

You ever have those days when you feel so uninspired to get dressed? And you just lay on the floor crying “I have nothing to wear!”? I’ve been having so many of those days lately.

They say April showers bring May flowers, but this year it seems more like April sunshine has brought May rain. We had days near 90 degrees in April but now in May, it rained last week and it’s raining again today and tomorrow. I think it’s time I get some spring trench coats. I have the pink one so I’ve been wearing that but now I think I need more. Plus, I Read More

When I take my blog pictures, I drive into town one day a week and take a few sets of outfit pictures for the outfits I’ve worn the past week. On the day I tried to take these photos, I’m pretty sure the universe had it out for me because everything went wrong! If you follow me on Snapchat (ElementsOfEllis), you already know what happened. First, as I was driving into town, a bird Read More

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Nail Polish Top Coat | Colors: Sugar Fix and Creme de la Creme

I’ve been wanting to try the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Nail Polish for so long, and now that I’ve finally tried it, all I can think is why did it take me so long to try it?! This stuff is so uh-mazing! I’ve gotten gel nails at the salon and I love the staying power of it, but I hate having to pay to get it done (mainly because I’d rather spend my money on new clothes or chocolate 😉 ) I try to paint my nails every Read More

I didn’t realize it until I was linking up the items for this post, but I totally copied the models outfit. Haha! Who wore it better? I think it’s safe to say she did…it’s tough to compete with a model. Funny how I thought I came up with this outfit all on my own, not even realizing I had seen it on the model when I ordered the shorts a few weeks ago. I guess that’s Read More

Overalls always remind me of my sister. Let me tell you, that chick LOVES her some overalls! She wore them even when it wasn’t cool for someone over the age of 10 to wear them. Every time she see’s a pair, whether they’re on a baby, hanging on a rack in a store, or even just a picture of overalls, she gets super excited and starts Read More

So I’ve had this irrational fear of off-the-shoulder tops, but I think I’m finally getting over it. Why have they always scared me so much, you ask? Because if you’re photographed from the chest/shoulders up, it would look like you have no clothes on. And my friends, nothing is scarier than looking like you aren’t wearing anything in a picture…except maybe spiders and ax murderers. But you know what I Read More

Honey Beauty Products:

Have you ever wondered how people come up with all these weird at home, diy beauty remedies? Like who looks in their kitchen and thinks what should I rub all over my face today? Oh an avocado…or baking soda…or honey. Um, when I look in my kitchen all I think about it what’s going in my belly. My sister and I were talking about this and she said that for some reason she’s been having the urge to put honey on zits. So apparently that’s how Read More
