June Wishlist | Matching Sets, Flowy Dresses, and Sleek Bikinis

Hi Glamsies! 

Happy Humpday. 

I've really been into matching separates, flows dresses, and rompers lately! I have this amazing romper in a very unique print that I want to show you. That'll be posted soon! 

Today I'm going to show you some looks that I've been wanting and this will summarize my want list for the month of June! Now this list will be items that are from one website, SheIn and its because of their unbeatable prices and trendy pieces that is so unique! I want to point you in the right direction in regards to style on a budget!

Lets get started...



My obsession for matching sets is too real! This set is perfect for getaways, pool parties, and everyday wear! These are so easy to slip on and style effortlessly because your look is pretty much complete and you look snazzy without even having to accessorize!


The rule detailing in this set makes for a very chic, lady-like look. I love that it comes with a bandeau because without showing a little skin this look can quickly go from chic to a pilgrim-like look lol (Im just saying) Honestly, I don't want to look like I'm a farm girl, while theres nothing wrong with that, thats just not my thing. Shoes will play an important role in making this look fully come together. Heels or block heeled sandals will definitely make for a great compliment!


Laced, striped, and backless! What a magnificent combo! I live for these twists and turns in a clothing  piece. This has me written all over it lol Backless is for us brave girls who aren't afraid to show some skin but lace gives us that sweet touch while stripes elongate whatever area of the body it touches. Don't be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone. This is my fav from this wishlist!


This color is an attention-getter and a confident lady like yourself will sure look good in it! This look says I'm a lady but I know how to take charge and i'm very confident in my femininity! Being a woman never felt so good in this dress. Show up to brunch, baby showers, or even to a date night in the marvelous dress, you'll be sure to slay the scene!




The material and detailing of this set makes it not look so simple! This is a nice yellow color but the design is very simple but simple is definitely on trend right now. If you're into trends this works perfectly! Im not a person who follows trends but I do love this bikini set for its unique color and detail.


I hope you enjoyed this post! What are some looks, items, or accessories that you've been into lately? Please comment below, I would love to know!

1st Annual Glam Pop-Up Market

Hello! Happy Monday!

Guess what I am so so happy to tell you about??

My latest, but most proudest accomplishment! Which is...
Hosting my first very own event...a Pop Up Market!

Yayyyyy! 


I have been wanting to do an event like this for a while but recently I gathered the momentum and the braveness to do it! I felt like the time was right and so I put my fears, doubts, and shyness aside and DID IT!
I had 10 vendors who came from as far as South Carolina to be apart of this spectacular event! I am overly thankful and grateful for them over everything because without them this wouldn't have been possible. So thank you to all the small business owners for believing in me! 

I couldn't have picked a better place to have this event! The SoChi Gallery was nothing short of amazing with its modern interiors and loft-style construct. I only viewed this space and knew it was the one immediately upon viewing it! I was totally sold, it was perfect! I took a good friend and mentor of mine along with me, Dave (Owner or Pure Tropix) and he to was in love with the space!
Thanks so much to the owner of The SoChi Gallery, Terrell Sandifer for creating this lovely space!
I must say that my vision literally turned into a reality with this event. My mother id an excellent job on my dessert table and mimosa bar! She's the queen of event and home decor. Love you mom! I didn't have to give her any instructions, she made it happen!
So there were 4 different juices to mix with your champagne and 3 different kind of fruit to top it off with! Girl, thats 4 different types of champagne lol! I found these cute gold and white straw at HomeGoods, how cute! Perfect for The #GlamPopUpMarket. Everyone was in heaven.....We also had mint/cucumber water along with an exotic juice drink for those who weren't into alcohol. 

My Look:
Top & Bottom- KnowStyle
Shoes: ShoeLand
Lips- Mac's Ruby Woo

Very stylish look on a budget!
Total Price for this look: Under $75


I loved this SnapChat filter and can you believe I created it myself? Yes, darlingggg :)
It was actually fun making it!

OH MY, Kimono

Today's post is a look of the day featuring this gorgeous, spectacular kimono! I wear this kimono with shorts, skirts, pants, jeans, and even dresses! You name it and this kimono really gives whatever you wear underneath it a vibe! yes, #IssaVibe! lol

I'm Hosting My First Event | Glam Pop-Up Market


5 SUMMER ESSENTIALS I CAN'T GO WITHOUT

Hi Glamsies, Happy Memorial Day!

What are those thing that you absolutely cannot go without during the Summer months? This is what todays post is all about...



1.) Tortoise Cat-eye Sunnies - Soooo these are by far my fave sunglasses right now, stylish and protective! These are super classic but I love the cut-off at the bottom which makes for a more modern/trendy feel! 


2.) Lavender+Honey Tea Spoons - Found these at T.J Maxx, super tasty and convenient! I don't even use a regular spoon with my teas anymore. Healthy and easy to use. You know how I am about my foods and things lol. They have other flavors that I'm excited to try as well. These are so good, I like to eat them alone sometimes, without tea. I'm even more excited for my morning/night tea time now that I have this tasty addition!


3.) Pearl Face Elixir - Amazing!! This is by Pure Tropix and all natural! Perfect for putting on my face after my hot showers before bed. This literally soaks into my skin and gives me a glamorous glow without having to apply a whole lot. At first i was hesitant because I despise oily skin but this product has the right ingredients where the oil feels like its melting into my skin perfectly and nourishing it from within! 



4.) pur~lisse Daily Lip Nourisher - The mango and shea butters in this smells so amazing. This is a simple lip product that does exactly what it is supposed to do and I really needed this because sometimes I like to go bare without lipstick. The moisture that this gives my lips is great for when I want to wear it under a lipstick! Must have. 


5.) Essentia - If you've never payed attention to anything I've written on my blog pay attention tot his lol Get you some Alkaline water! There are so many benefits that I don't feel like typing at this moment that you can't miss out on this water lol. Drinking a bottle of this is like drinking regular water with 1000xs the benefits! Ive never felt more hydrated! My overall well-being feels amazing after drinking this product. i buy mine from Publix supermarket. Sometimes they have a 2 for $3 sale and thats mostly when I stock up! The best water I've tasted and very healthy!

I hope you thoroughly enjoyed this blog post and I look forward to next time!

Skincare To Try This Summer | pur~lisse

 Hello! Happy Friday...
Let's weekend :)

Today's post is on pur~lisee! pur~lisse describes themselves as being a culmination of Asian wisdom and modern philosophy. Of course I was excited to try these products because of the ingredients that that use in them. They are very aware of the benefits of using all-natural ingredients in their products. This is what I value and this is what pur-lisse as a brand ranks as being highly important!

Let's get an inside look at their Blue Lotus White Tea Treatment Sheet Mask, Blue Lotus Essential Daily Moisturizer SPF 30, Blue Lotus 4-in-1 Cleansing Milk, and the Daily Lip Nourisher.

+This is a gentle cleanser that also removes makeup. (win/win sitch!) 
+Tones and soothes skin
+Rejuvenates skin.
+Antioxidant rich formula combats against free radicals.
++The consistency is runny but so gentle and calming. When Im using it, I get a spa-like experience and it leaves my skin cleansed, soft to touch, and pure. They put a lot of essential oils in this. I feel amazing about its natural ingredients!

This is the perfect addition to my Summer skincare regimen because of the SPF 30. You and I both can't afford to be without the good ol SPF during the Summer months, this is vital to keep for on the go beauty! I like that the tube is big enough for lots of product but small enough to carry on the go. I can just pull this out of my beauty pouch and apply it while laying in the sand on the beach! Can't beat that! Click the link to get the deeets!



This is by far the best lip product that I've ever owned! Its ultra-lightweight, ultra-nourishing, and perfect for wear under lipstick or alone! I love, love wearing it as a gloss! It's shiny but not in a cooking grease type of way lol Its very easy to apply and I reapply it all day long because it just feels so good on my lips and smells great as well! Smells like apricots and soft touch of mango! 
+Petroleum Free 
+Mango Seed Butter is highly nourishing & healing and contains Vitamins A, C and E 
+Jojoba Oil provides anti-inflammatory benefits and soothes chapped lips 
+Rice Bran Oil hydrates and protects lip from UV rays 
+Vitamin E conditions lips & leaves them supple and youthful 
+Enhances color when used under lipstick/gloss 
+Allows for smoother lipstick/gloss application


AMAZING! Very penetrating and ultra-moisturizing! I applied this mask after my shower and shampoo session. I applied the mask and let it sit for about 15 mins while sipping on my hot tea, and engaging in a girl talk convo with my fave! It says to not rinse but i really had a desire too. I must admit that I did not like the sticky, greasy after feeling of the mask. My face felt sticky in a way and I really wanted to rinse it. Other than that, its a mask that does what it says it will do! Just go ahead and purchase the 6 pack because you're going to use them all. lol
My skin was glowing and definitely gave me  younger appearance! 


Ok Glamsies! We are at the end of the post and guess what? It's Friday baby, time to par-tayyyyy lol

Hope you enjoyed this post as much as I did, love ya!
