Inner Beauty Wednesday- Fleur of the City

Untitled

 

Today on FOTC I want to share to share that there aren’t always good days, there are bad days too. And thats okay. I recently shared this on my Instagram, because I want more of us to open up and talk about what makes us feel better on those bad days. What helps you get through those tough times?

As someone who gets anxiety, those bad days can be hard to handle. So I wanted to share that not only are you not alone if you do too, but also a couple things that help me personally.

1. Driving. For some reason driving with the windows down and music playing, relaxes me

2. Going to the gym. As cheesy as it might sound, the gym has gotten me through a lot. It lets me zone out, and focus 100% on myself. It builds my physical and mental strength.

3. Girls night. Whether it’s with my mom or my girlfriends, a girls night helps ease my mind and get a lot of laughs in.

4. Podcasts/ audiobooks. I don’t talk a lot about my faith because it’s personal to me, but whether your religious or not, motivational podcasts and books keep me pushing and driving forward.

I hope these help! Become the strong, confident person you were always meant to be, even on those bad days! You’ve got this!

au revoir,

Jessica Ray

Untitled-1

Watch the VLOG HERE!

HELLO FOTC READERS!!! I’m back from LA and the wonderful Create & Cultivate Conference for bloggers! It was truly an amazing experience not only because it was my first time out west but I met so many new people! Listening to influential bloggers such as Song of Style, Peace Love Shea, Whitney Eve, Glam Life Guru, Devon Rachel and Eat Sleep Wear was such an awesome time! Not only did I learn a lot but also made so many new blogger friends! Also, I have a dying urge to move to LA now simply because of the weather, I could get use to all that sun! If you want to watch a Vlog on my YouTube channel to see the event, click the link above! Thank you to everyone who followed my journey on Instagram & Facebook and for ALL your love and support! Xx!

Watch my video HERE!!!!!

I’m back!!!! As some of you might know, I have been under the weather lately, so the other day I came up with the idea to film a video for you all on makeup you can do once you start feeling a little bit better and want to put some effort into getting ready! Times like this, I like to keep my makeup simple and focus on giving my skin a gorgeous glow as well as bringing some color into my face! Watch the video to see how I did this full look! Happy Wednesday everyone! xx!

shirt: Nordstrom (similar here) / jacket: H&M (similar here) / jeans: Paige Denim / scarf: McQueen / hat: Target / purse: Dailylook (only $54.99!!!) / shoes: TJMaxx (similar here) / lips: Nars

It’s Friday & clearly I can’t get enough of this dark lip from Nars! This bold lip has been a go-to for me these last two weeks; I am slowly collecting all of the Nars Audacious lipsticks because they are perfection! The formula is just so creamy, pigmented & and lasts forever. Another obsession of mine is McQueen scarves, I just love the edginess of the skulls but the femininity of the silk scarf. Well I am off to run some errands & then tomorrow I have a very exciting meeting that I cannot wait to share with you! What will you be doing this weekend?

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8

Being in college sometimes I need to find clothing pieces that are more affordable and dresses tend to be a more expensive purchase. So today I am sharing my go-to place for affordable shopping, H&M!!!!!! It is such a great place to find those trendier pieces that you don’t want to splurge on. Here are a few of my favorite dresses from H&M that are fabulous for Holiday festivities! I’m obsessed with all of them, which one is your favorite?
