BEFORE Shots + LIFE

HELLO HELLO! 

Happy September. Can you believe it's already September? Oh my goodness!

Life has been nothing less than a crazy adventure. 

For the month of July and beginning of August we had the house in shambles. We painted the whole house, put in new floors, installed blinds, doors, new hardware, removal of popcorn...I could keep going and going. I tried my best to document as much as I could, but it was definitely difficult. 

During this whole process we also received some sad news that my husband's dad has stage four lung cancer. So, you can imagine our happiness over finally finding a home, but then the heart break to hear such terrible news. 

That's just life you know? Sometimes it's happy go lucky, sometimes it's complete chaos or sometimes it's both.

Please pray for him, he starts chemo tomorrow. I know it's going to be a difficult journey. 

For now, here are the before shots of the house. Like I promised :).  

These images were the ones posted on the MLS site when the house was put on the market. 
Please bear with me as I am working on one project at a time.  
It's a long process for me. 
I get a vision and I like to make it come to life.
  If you follow me on Snapchat you've seen some sneak peeks. :)
I've been spending lots of time at Homegoods, TJ Maxx and Hobby Lobby. 
 Now that I am looking back at the images myself...WOW. What a transformation. 
It's crazy what paint itself will do. 
I cannot wait to share with you guys. 
I've made it a goal for the month of September to really invest some of my time back to the blog. 
Thank you so much for your patience with me and stay tuned for all the future projects.
I will have a DIY prioject on Thursday. Come back and say hello! 

Love, 

Ivonne Stacy.

Clean Up In Aisle 7!

Hello Lovelies, 

It's been crazy busy lately and this weekend I did not have any extra time to take outfit pics. 
So sorry! 
Plus, I must admit all that is running through my mind lately is this.... 
 HOME DECOR. COLORS. DOORS. BLINDS. LIGHTS.
MOVING. UN-BOXING.
I kid you not, we've been to Home Depot at least ten times in the past week and once to Lowes. 
I am a Home Depot kinda girl, lol! 
If you follow me on Snapchat, you will know what the hubby and I have been up to. 
(IvonneStacy)
I already have some battle wounds. I ran over my own foot with the cart at Home Depot. 
And on Sunday I tripped over a pile of rugs at Homegoods and fell to my knees.
My husband was no help. 
He pretty much laughed at me the whole time. 
"27 year old woman down in aisle 7."
"Clean up in aisle 7"
Oh my goodness. This only happens to me, I swear. 
Anyway, here are some of my inspiration images that I have top-of-mind at the moment. 
All imgaes are via Pinterest.
I did take before images of the house. 
Leave me a comment if you would like to see them. 
Have a great rest of the week!

Love, 

Ivonne Stacy.

POLKA DOT ROMPER

Hola Chicas, 

I am thankful it's FRIDAY. 
It been a crazy week and I cannot wait for the weekend. 
I would like to sleep in on Saturday, but you guys know how that goes. Every time I try to sleep in, I wake up even earlier than usual. FAIL! 
Anyway, enough of me rambling. 
Today's outfit I LOVE. I bought this little romper way back in December. 
I was waiting for the perfect day to wear it and it finally came. 
I paired it with my new fave HandM lace up sandals. 
My tiny pop of color is the Kat Von D- A Go-Go Bright Orange lippy.
(Romper is from Agaci.)
I wanted to wear a BOLD necklace, so I layered two necklaces together. 
My Windsor coin necklace and my silver rhinestone necklace from F21. 
I think it actually looks like one whole necklace instead of two. 
The trick to layering necklaces is pretty simple. 
Just make sure they are the same tones. If you start with gold, then layer on some more gold pieces. If you are wearing silver, layer on some more silver. 
I pray you all have a wonderful weekend. 
Thank you so much for taking some time to visit the blog and leaving your kind comments. 

Love,

Ivonne Stacy.

SUMMER's Little Black Dress {LBD}

Hola Chicas,

Hope you all are having a great start to the week. 
I am SO busy, I almost thought I wasn't going to have time to post today, but when it's important to you- you have to make time right? Right! 

Today's outfit is simple, but I wanted to show you how make-up and accessories can make a little black dress or LBD fun and cute.
STEP ONE:
Pair your LBD with some fun summer shoes. I decided to wear it with my fave HandM lace-up sandals. 
 STEP TWO:
Wear some killer shades. 
If you have some with reflective lenses even better. 
 STEP THREE:
ROCK a bold lip. 
I opted for my Kat Von D- A Go-Go Bright Orange Red. Click Here to Purchase!
And what do I always pair with orange? Turquoise of course! On my lower lash line- I am wearing NYX slim sparkle eyeliner in Aqua. Click here to purchase.
STEP FOUR:
Add some fun accessories. I am wearing some old HandM turquoise bracelets, two on each hand. 
The layered necklaces I purchased in Ibiza, Spain. Not only do they add to the outfit, but they bring back memories of Spain. 
STEP FIVE:
Wear a hat you love. 
Or not.
Whatever makes you happy and makes you feel good. 
Thank you so much for stopping by. I pray you all have a great week!
See you Friday.

Love,

Ivonne Stacy.

Blue Gingham Dress + POP of PINK

Happy Friday!

Feliz Viernes Chicas!

It's OFFICIAL. We are homeowners again. Oh yeah! Thank you Jesus!
Pardon my excitement, I am so thrilled.
 Thank you so much for your well wishes and prayers.
Huge hug through your computer screen, phone or iPad.  
Now let's talk about this little blue gingham dress- it's lovely. 
Reminds of summer and it's the perfect little dress to add pops of color to. 
For example: Today is officially the start of Fourth of July weekend.  
How cute would this be with red heels and red accessories? 
Cute. Cute.
For me, I chose to rock it with magenta/ hot pink accessories. 
It makes the look super girly.
