Living in: FRAYED DENIM + my favorite sweater for under $35

Greetings! Hello!

Glad you're here! Seriously, I am! :)

What did you do for Valentine's Day/Galentine's Day? Anything FUN?

We did a low-key night at a new restaurant I've been wanting to try! I had Justin plan it (ladies tell them EXPLICITLY what you want them to do, it makes life much easier - LOL). For him, I ordered heart shaped pizzas to his office (like 7 of them - HA) and they had a little pizza party for V-Day.

I know what a guy likes, and it's $100 worth of ZA.

Oh and, when Justin commented, 'new sweater?' sarcastically to me when I came home from work last week, I realized that I needed to share the outfit I have been living in lately.

Frayed denim, and this over-sized sweater.

I have gotten SO MANY compliments on this mustard number. People seem to love the color, and that it looks way more expensive than it is.

Plus, it's so cozy chic.

I'm VERY in to the marigold/mustard color since it looks good on blondes, brunettes, and redheads alike! I usually throw it on with jeans, black denim, and I've even worn it out to dinner with my OTK boots and a black tight dress for that over-sized sweater sexy vibe. 

The jeans and the hat I got on the Luv.it app, which I told you about in a previous post and shared on my Instagram here.

I've been using to app to shop because it's SO EASY and because I've already made cash back just from shopping. Highly recommend reading the full post here.

Luv.it's made shopping easier, because you just scroll a curated feed of what other people are shopping, what's trending, what's new...rather than to search aimlessly on websites for inspo.

The internet, is like shopping at Forever 21, lots happening, (most of it bad), but if you spend the day searching you'll find some REAL gems. 

But who has that time?


The luv.it app makes the experience seamless for you.

You guys know, that Luv.it is the app that luvs you back (by giving you cash MONAY each time you buy, or when someone buys something you 'luv'!)

This is my favorite part about the app because it gives people who aren't in rewardstyle or shopstyle the chance to earn $. 

I found these jeans, and this hat on Luv.it. Two things which I would have never found otherwise.  

With Luv.It you can find up and coming designers, modern brands, and trending products like these jeans that just arrived this week. You can see what it's like to shop these items, below!

Download Luv.It and let's follow eachother (@hundredblogla)!

THE APP THAT LUVS U BACK (& pays you to shop! Meet Luv.it)

And a happy Monday babes!

First things first. Can we talk about the first few weeks of January? That was ROUGH, no? 

Am I the only one? I fee like it was a cluster. But! Now I am feeling oh so in the flow, and it's SO NICE. I did a little post on my Instagram about routine you can see here

Now I'm back the groove, getting my life in order, recording The Almost 30 Podcast, doing a bit of blog consulting with some babes, and planning an upcoming event in February at Lululemon Malibu - talking about self love. 

Also on the docket is a bit of shopping for these events and for some bachelorette parties I have upcoming.

I need a good one piece for Cabo in March, and I needed some new stud earrings to wear everyday.

So this week I set aside time to online shop. Got my shit ready, sat down and went to my favorite sites: Revolve, Forever 21, ASO'S, Reformation...

LET ME TELL YOU IT'S SO OVERWHELMING. 

I blacked out in the first 45 minutes and came back to reality realizing I was on a website to buy bulk packs of gum? There's just TOO MUCH out there when you're shopping. I feel like I look for inspiration from Instagram or whatever, and try to get a vibe for what I am trying to do.

But then it's so many steps to find what I want - or stuff similar. There is Liketknow.it but I don't want to have an exact copy of what people wear a lot of times.

Makes you think right? That's how an idea is born ya know? How can you see what your friends, bloggers are into and want to buy in a pretty easy format just like Instagram. 

So, as all good ideas go, it's been done. 

Let me tell ya about Luv.It app and how it works.

The app that DOES that for you. 

New on the scene, let me tell you first that it's building it's users. So you won't see EVERYONE you know on it like you see with Instagram. Again, it's new and more and more bloggers join the platform everyday. As it grows the better it gets and as more people join the more that you can see to 'shop'. I loved using it to see what other blogger friends I know were buying, as an easy way to inspire. You can purchase directly in the app - and it was shipped to me in under 3 days.

That being said, I am excited to see more people join, and use the app and for more brands to be added. I had NO idea who Bing Bang NYC and Thistle & Finn were - so finding those little earrings from them was huge. I love them!

PLUS: 

Luv.it allows you to earn cash on items you purchase as well as earn cash on each time someone else purchases from your luv.it profile. You will receive 2.5% cash back on every purchase you make and 2.5% referral fee on every purchase you inspire.

You make money when a product is LUV’d, Reposted or Shared. Even if you aren't a blogger. LuvIt gives you cash back every time you buy a product and every time you inspire someone else to shop. Yes. You earn real money when someone on your network buys a product you Luv'd or shared.

I LOVE that people outside of LTK can earn money based on what they shop, share and luv. You guys know that I wouldn't rep or share anything I didn't truly use or think was going to be something BOMB. 


Why I love Luv.It:

Anyone can earn 2.5% cash back on EVERY purchase in the app

You can find your friends/bloggers and see what they 'luv' just like looking on Instagram

You get a 2.5% referral fee for any purchase you inspire

New brands to check out - as I said I haven't heard of a lot of the brands on here - which is a good thing!

It has a really NICE user experience. Shopping in it is REALLY easy and everything makes 'sense'. 

Available in da app store! Get it here


Here's what I bought:

Cactus Earrings from Thistle & Finn ($10 dollars what what! Those are above!)

Bing Bang NYC Gemstone Bar Earrings (above!)

One Piece Black Bathing Suit from Bikini.com

I'm also wearing this over sized black denim jacket from ASOS (not luv.it). I LOVE how soft it is and how grunge chic I feel. You guys know I'm a HUGE ASOS girl (one of my favorite posts with them is here), so obviously their jacket collection is en fuego.


Cool, right? I have been loving looking at what my friends like Ruthie Ridley on here are 'luving' and I already have cash back just for buying stuff. LOL.

Download it and follow me @hundredblogla and I'll follow ya - let's make shopping less stressful right?

Excited to use luv.it with you!

Any questions? Ask me!
