My Sweet & Spicy Valentine's Day LookBook

Ciao amores,

I can not believe the day is here where I get to premiere My Sweet & Spicy Valentine's Day LookBook featuring JB Couture Cupcakes! Jess the founder and owner of JB Couture Cupcakes was kind enough to let me film in her shop and make delicious cupcakes to be featured in my lookbook. All of her social media will be linked down below along with her cupcake shop location. I had such a great team that worked right beside me to create this beautiful lookbook. I am so thankful for everyone who worked with me and made all of this possible! Without further ado here is My Sweet & Spicy Valentine's Day LookBook Of 2015:

Thank you for everyone who helped to make this lookbook special. This is my second time writing
this and it was such a beautiful introduction for you all but, it got deleted from my YouTube description because of a technical error. I really poured my heart into that one and I hope this does just as much justice. The location that we were able to shoot My Sweet & Spicy Valentine's Day LookBook in is my friend and successful founder and owner of JB Couture Cupcakes, Jess. She was kind enough to let us use her shop and make delicious cupcakes to be featured in my lookbook as well. All of Jess's information will be linked below so, you can find her shop and order some delicious desserts! Our crew worked right beside each other to accomplish this lookbook and I am so thrilled that they took time out of their busy schedules to help me! Poshmark contributed a $25 credit toward my purchases from Poshmark. I used almost all Poshmark clothing, and accessories that I chose from four individuals' closets to help me style myself for the shoot. They worked with my budget and me in order for me to style my lookbook wardrobe. The girls' closets will be featured below so, you can shop and check out all Poshmark has to offer. I am also, featuring what I got from each girl's closet and how much I spent to make this lookbook possible. All clothing, shoes, and accessories purchased will be recycled to be sold again, become part of my personal wardrobe, or get donated. My favorite part about buying on Poshmark is the ability to be able to reuse items such as clothing, shoes, and accessories and when you are done, recycle them again to another loving home. Not only does Poshmark enable women to have their own businesses through their closets but, they also help the environment by giving women the ability to reuse items. I am so grateful for Poshmark, they have enabled me to help other women by purchasing items on their closet and have given me a small income to pay some of my bills, and for that I am grateful.

The top and black pants were purchased at Burlington Coat Factory for about $34 for both pieces. Which is included in the total cost above.
