Reflecting on July


πŸ‘ Tuesday Shoesday& Tuesday Thoughts πŸ‘  

Picked up these gorgeous bloomsπŸ’πŸ’ from my local market street and couldn't help but #reflectonlife For a REAL talk on my past month!!


As I was picking up these blooms I couldn't help but think about the saying, Be patient with yourself as nothing in nature blooms all year long! This to me hits home as I reflect on this crazy ass month! This was one of the most trying months I've had in a while and I realized mid-way through that I HAD to rest! Nothing in nature blooms all YEAR long so why am I expecting myself too!! This standard that we set for ourselves as women  to be able to keep everything going that's expected of us come rain or snow is not a realistic goal and not ever going to be attainable as it is impossible to achieve this idea of perfection. I realize that once you go through a traumatic experience you realize all of the blessings of daily life and WHO the key people are in your life that love you for you!!  I feel soo appreciative of all of my family and my fiance Michael for being there for me this past month and always being there for me.

All in all amazing strides and a  traumatic event later has  helped me to see the brightness in every single day 🌞🌞 which is ironic considering the namesake of my  blog is Brightly Soo.. 

*The name of my blog is Brightly Soo which is the idea to brighten your day wsuth daily does of fashion style fitness and motivation!*

I say ALL of this all to say that I urge everyone to actively and intentionally practice self care DAILY!!πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•
If that's taking a walk in nature or even doing a salt or bubble bath to relax after a long day!! Do IT!! Life is so short and you gotta appreciate every single day!!

Hope everyone has a blessed day... And yall I am sooooo ready for the new month ahead!!
I have already stated game planning and goal setting for the last 5 months of the year and I am so excited to share some of the new updates with y'all!! 
Also I have not forgotten about the LA youtube video that will be posting soon!!

Til next time,

Peace & Love,

Old School Gladiators

Today on the blog sharing my favorite go to summer sandals!! They are the old school Gladiators being styled with my favorite floral jumper!!! 
They were a big hit last year and they actually still working in 2018!! 

I actually wore these showstoppers to StyleConLA  2018 and love these girl!! 


The key to keeping my look fresh and on point while being bright and trendy is to mix up high and low pieces! These shoes were under $100 and are still working for me a whole year later! 



I say this to say if you are going to purchase a trendy item make sure you purchase it in a neutral color and is versatile for seasons to come!!

#AaliyahMacCollab πŸ’‹πŸ’‹

 Seriously in LπŸ’“ve with this Aaliyah eyeshadow palette and whole line!! I have been a huge fan of Aaliyah since I was a little girl!! I rewatched her Rock the Boat video and knows all the lyrics to "Are You that Somebody" and find it amazing they have a new beauty line dedicated to get signature style!


 Red/Natural lips and bright/natural eye shadow!! 
The lip colors match really well to her overall style!! She seriously was one of the most iconic artists of the early 2000s!! 
Romeo Must Die was my movie y'all like seriously she was kicking butt as a young black woman with Jet Li!! What is there not to like! She was definitely an inspirational actress and artist from my childhood! I feel like to a lot of milennals she was! 

In regards to the collection you can click here  to shop the collection!



I personally liked the eyeshadow palette more as I already have the lipstick colors in that style as that's my natural day to day routine!
In regards to the bronzer it was too bright for my skin tone which is okay πŸ‘Œ! It's meant more for caramel girls and I'm a espresso mocha girl!!πŸ’•πŸ’•


Also if you looking for some throwback vibes check out some of the videos below:

Try Again from the Romeo Must Die Soundtrack

The One in A Million Video is one my favs with the sleek ahead of its time fashion style! 

Lastly Rock the Boat with Timbaland is a Classic!

Well I hope y'all enjoyed today's post because I definitely did taking a stroll down memory lane!!

Tuesday Shoesday


Today on the blog sharing some of my favorite designer shoes!! These are all new releases and are priced at above the $500 mark so they are good for inspiration. I personally am a big bargain shopper and am a BIG believer in the mix of high and low fashion so thats why i genuinely enjoy sharing these posts because you don't have to purchase the shoes that are featured as they are mainly for inspiration. And if you buy them you have just bought amazing statement makers which will jazzy up any outfit as the high end piece of the outfit!


#1 Stella McCartney Star Slides

These slides are PERFECT for summer! These are under $500! These would go well with black or blue jeans and a classic white tee shirt! Also I could see it matched with joggers for athletes!! 

 #2 Valentino Studded GARAVANI Pointed Pumps
 These are soo classy and chic and ohh..... so versatile!!! These would actually go well with skinny blue jeans a flowy white top or even with a light blue and floral spring style top!!

#3 Made for Walking Boots
These boots literally are MADE FOR walking!!! 
 How much fyahh can you get in these shoes!!! Lots!!! I like the " MADE for WALKING" on them! They would go well with maybe a short mini dress and even dare I say a RED mini dress! Soo cute and on point!!



 #4 Christian Louboutin Mascaralta Red Pumps

Every list I make I have to include a pair of SEXY hott shoes!! The shoes that make me wanna dance salsa all over the dance floor as well as what I wear on a hott date!! And these right here are the ones to wear for a HOTT date!!!
What are those!!!
These were my wildcard choice!! I thought they were perfect for fall! These shoes seemed so different than the norm with the gold accents and couldn't help but share these beauties! This would go well with whatever you choose if it were me i would either wear a gold shimmery dress or keep it more low-key with a neutral mini dress!!

Bonus are these brown pumps they also would go well with blue jeans and a casual day as well as a summer dress!!! I love the way the back side details are!!


Thank yall soo much for stopping by!!

til next time,
Peace & Love,

#Makeup Monday #Ad Neocell Supplements

                                            

Today on the blog sharing my new favorite makeup supplement! It's from the brand Neocell  and its a collagen supplement!When I first heard of it I thought collagen was plastic surgery...πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ not a supplement to help with my health and skin!

There are so many benefits to using Collagen besides the skin benefits.

#1 Supports Healthy Skin & Hair

This supplement has quite a bit of collagen and I take Biotin from the company which helps my skin even more! This supplement

#2 Promotes Deep Sleep

This was key for me as I do sometime have insomnia nothing like having a mile long to do list to keep you up!
( I've actually been keeping a notepad by my bed to help me sleep better! This has helped me get to sleep sooner while the supplement has made it easier to sleep!)

#3. Helps Joints & Muscles Recovery
Helps increase the elasticity and recovery of your muscles! This is key for workouts as it helps with fatigue overall and I have noticed a difference in my workouts!!

#4 Helps Digestion

This for me is important as I have to pain attention to my gut health as it's a weak point for me. When I'm under stress I have to always keep this area in mind. Everyone has different parts of their body that is affected when under stress so it's always key to know whats your weak point. 


#5 Weight Loss

Need I say more!!! Haha I'm kidding but this goes with the point above! Digestion is key for weight loss!


Food Options that are high in Collagen
The options below are great options to consume collagen and omega-3's in your diet.


1. Dark Green Vegetables
2. Citrus Fruits
3.Berries
4. Fish
5. Orange Vegetables

Next week I'll be sharing my smoothie mix for better skin as well as tips and secrets to better take care of your skin!! Sometimes it's the little things that make a difference! 

Til next time,

Peace & Love,
