My Spring Bucket List for 2018!

Hello, lovely readers!

It’s already April, which means Spring has arrived! Or for some of us, we’re still waiting for the official Spring weather through rain and snow.

Nonetheless, I believe that a Spring bucket list is necessary to help plan a great Spring time. I think we enjoy Spring so much because it’s like a premature Summer.

Even though it’s like Summer, it’s still not fully there yet which can be hard to try to find things to do.

So! I’ve put together a little list to help make your Spring more fun, eventful, and memorable! Let’s get right into it: Continue reading “My Spring Bucket List for 2018!”

His and Hers Disney Mugs!

Okay, so I’m pretty excited to share this with you for multiple reasons. I mentioned these mugs in my What I Got For Christmas Video back in December as they were a gift from Kolani’s mom.

I’m a ridiculous collector of eclectic mugs- whether I’m getting them from a place I’ve traveled to or I desperately need it living in my limited cabinet space, you won’t really be able to talk me out of a getting a new mug once my heart is set on it.

I mean seriously, how cute are these?! His and hers? Now we can enjoy my favorite Mango Black Tea from Trader Joe’s together with these adorable matching mugs.

Okay, the biggest reason I’m so excited to share this with you is because Kolani and I are going to DISNEYLAND! I’m counting down the days until we leave and of course it seems like the days are dragging on. Neither of us have been to Disneyland since 2013, so I’m looking forward to our first Disney trip together, as well as our first flight together.

With that being said, STAY TUNED because there are many Disney vlogs and blog posts coming soon! Who else loves Disney?! Ahhhh! Click here to get your cute mug!

This has been a chloscall.

Until next time,

La La Land Live!

`February 14th, 2018 was Kolani and I’s second Valentine’s Day together. This year, he surprised me with tickets to the Seattle Symphony to see La La Land live at Benaroya Hall! I was so beyond excited, La La Land is one of my favorite movies of all time, and I couldn’t wait to go to the symphony.

Processed With Darkroom

Neither of us had been to Benaroya Hall before, and I was blown away as soon as we walked inside. They have a restaurant, a coffee shop, and a gift shop before you enter the actual music hall. The symphony is so visually stunning, I couldn’t stop staring at the architecture.

On the way into the hall, we walked past an open garage door and overheard some musicians rehearsing. We peered around the corner and learned that they were warming up for the La La Land concert! We got a quick little picture with them, and it’s honestly one of my favorite photos of us now.

We had AMAZING seats, I couldn’t have been happier with how everything panned out. The staff was friendly and there was a restroom and a bar on our tier level too! Another awesome bonus is that you could pre-order drinks for intermission-order them before the show, and they’ll be ready for you to enjoy at intermission, you won’t need to spend those 20 short minutes waiting in line for refreshments!

We had such a wonderful time, it was such a treat to watch the movie in such an incredible place, and hearing the music live was beautiful beyond words. The music in La La Land is indescribable and perhaps underrated.

I can’t wait to go back and see another show soon, we had such a lovely, magical Valentine’s Day.

This has been a chloscall.

Until next time,

Make Extra Cash with Poshmark!

Greetings!

 Today, I want to talk about how amazing Poshmark is for making some extra cash. Also, before we really get into the post, I just want to reassure you that this post is not sponsored in any way by Poshmark, this is just something I believe could help a lot of people.

What is Poshmark?

Poshmark is an amazing app that allows people to sell old clothes. But don’t roll your eyes at me yet, this isn’t like any other garage sale. There are some AMAZING items listed on Poshmark for incredible prices. From brands like Chanel, Chloe, and Banana Republic; to American Eagle, Nike and even some name brand MAKEUP!

Almost all of these items are in fantastic condition-they could be lightly worn, NWT (new with tags), etc! All the clothes I’ve been selling are items that are either too small for me or hardly worn.

Originally, I was going to donate these clothes just to get rid of them, but I decided to give Poshmark a chance, and I’m sure glad I did. I sold about 3-4 items the first week alone! I was so excited, I had some extra cash flowing in from giving some great clothes to new homes! It’s all such an easy process and the Poshmark community is so kind!

How do I sell?

Go ahead and start digging around your closet to find items you could part with. It is very important to be honest and communicative with potential shoppers. Try to sell only items that are in the best condition; if you were buying something I doubt you would want a top with holes or stains. You can upload up to 8 photos of each item. It’s important to capture all angles in good lighting. Make sure to be detailed about the pieces, and DEFINITELY model them if you can, people love to see how the clothing looks when it’s worn!

Dressing rooms.

Shoppers can like items, or add them to a bundle. Say a shopper likes a few things from your closet; they can add them to a bundle and you (or the shopper) can offer a fair deal. Say they want 20% off for buying three items or you want to give them free shipping. Either way it’s a win win-your closet is clearing out while your bank account is filling up.

I sold an item, now what?

Once you’ve sold an item, it’s very important to ship it out asap. I usually ship mine 1-2 days after the item is sold. Your buyer is obviously excited and would prefer to have their item sooner rather than later; you don’t want them trying to message you wondering where their order is. Obtaining the best service is key, you’re not going to want bad reviews or unaccepted items!

Shipping.

The buyer almost always pays for shipping, unless the seller has made a deal to pay instead. Once you’ve sold an item, you will get an email and a notification from Poshmark congratulating you on the sale, as well as a prepaid printable shipping label. The great thing about this is (honestly one of my favorite parts) is you can just DROP OFF your package at the post office, no need to wait in those pesky lines!

There’s more tips and tricks to learn, but you can read all about it on the app once you’ve signed up! With that being said, if you sign up with my code “IAMFASHIONCOCO”, you’ll get 5$ off your first order! Click here  to shop discounted brands and make some extra cash!

Why You Need to be Shopping at Target Right Now & Styling Advice

Hello everyone, and welcome back.

Today we’re going to briefly talk about three little words that are both exciting and stressful: shopping on budget. Why do these three little words have such great power?

First off, it’s exciting because staying on budget is always the ultimate goal- you shouldn’t have to over spend for a nice top or a pair of flats.

Secondly, it’s stressful because of course these bargains don’t just fall into your lap, you have to hunt to find such great deals! But right now, you’re in luck.

If you’ve been in the whole “new year, new me” mindset and want to revamp your wardrobe, then look no further than *drumroll* Target.

Yes, yes it is true that Target is a magical kingdom full of possibilities, allure and currently, really great deals. You see, I found myself strolling the aisles of Target a couple days ago and found myself in shock and awe. I don’t really know why I was so surprised, I used to work in retail and completely understand the timing of sales, but I had never seen Target with a bigger clearance section.

As you all know, the holidays have ended and spring is just around the corner. The seasons are changing and so are the clothes. I scoped out clothing, shoes, and bags/accessories. I found purses on clearance for under 20$, cute ballet flats for only $12, and racks of unsold dresses, tops, and jeans.

With all these great deals going on, it would be easy to go crazy and buy things you don’t need. However the overall idea here is not to overspend. I’m always looking for the next best deal, so when I do stumble across a great sale I look at all the discounted items and think about what I really need.

Most of the time, I have a mental note in my head of all the things I’m on the prowl for and if I find what I’m looking for at a reasonable price then I’ll snatch it up. Maybe I am in need of new flats or maybe I need nicer tops- be picky about your options and don’t succumb to “but it was only 8$”.

Moral of the story, I don’t believe any woman (or any man) should have to pay an arm and a leg for clothing. I was never seriously into the whole representing a name brand trend (although, in middle school it was all about Aeropostale or Abercrombie & Fitch. Don’t lie, you probably had a puka shell necklace too).

I always believed that you should dress smart if you want to look sharp. Hunt the bargains, buy staple items and look flawless. This doesn’t mean that looks are everything, but it is hinting at the idea that your brains or talent is not the first thing a person sees. Your clothing speaks for you before you even open your mouth. If you want to be taken seriously, dress nice. Be clean, brush your hair, don’t wear clothes with snags or holes.

Be thorough with how you dress and present yourself. Even if you’re not trying to impress anyone, do it for yourself. Or do it for that instagram photo.

Oscar Wilde once said “You can never be overdressed or overeducated,” a quote I think about daily.

So go scope out your local Target and find some great deals!

Until next time,

Chloe

2018 Blog Goals

developmenT (2)

Hello everyone!

First off, I just wanted to wish you all a belated happy new year! It’s always so nice to recharge after the holidays and have fresh start to a new year.

With that being said, I’m sure a lot of you have set goals for  yourself this year, as have I. There are plenty of things I wish to accomplish this year, and improving my blog is one of them. Each year, I look over my content to see how it can be better. I compare, I research, but most importantly I watch what you guys respond best to.

So in addition to the upcoming improvement, I also would like to thank each and every one of  you who have supported me. With your likes, comments, and follows, I have become a better blogger, a better writer, and more attentive to what will be great, enjoyable content.

So obviously, the overall theme here is that there will be some exciting changes coming up. No need to worry though,  think of these upcoming changes as more of a remodeling, if you will.

I’m so excited for this new year and can’t wait to see how you guys respond to the future iamfashioncoco.

None of this would be possible without you.

Thank you all again, love you so so much.

Until next time,

Chloe

Heybrook Lookout & Eagle Falls : Chlolani Vlog

IMG_0020

Hello everyone!

So this weekend, my boyfriend Kolani and I explored the great outdoors and hiked Heybrook Lookout, and even saw Eagle Falls!

Here’s the link to the vlog: https://youtu.be/JzXkwjIGa3Q

Anywho, I thought I would post on here and give a quick little review about our experience. First of all, one of the best parts about the hike was the fact that we had gotten there so early. We arrived at 9:30 am, and overall, (with rest breaks included) the hike took us an hour to complete. Since we had gotten there so early on a Saturday morning, we only passed two couples the entire hike. The beginning is a little steep, so be ready for that, but the hike is smooth with hardly and jagged rocks up until the end right before the look out.

Once you get to the top of the hill, you can see a little bit of a view, but there is a tower with several flights of stairs to climb to get the ultimate view. This part was a little tricky for Kolani and I because we’re  both afraid of heights. So keep in mind if heights make you woozy, be warned, do not look down. But once you’re up there, you get a breath taking view of Washington. Trees, mountains, a cool summer breeze and not sound except birds chirping in the distance. It really was quite breathtaking.

After the hike, we drove up the road about two minutes and found Eagle Falls. (Unfortunately I don’t have pictures, but you can check out the vlog for footage). The water is beautiful, but again I would have to recommend getting there early and beating the crowd, it would have been much more enjoyable if it were a little more empty. I dipped my toes in and let me tell you, that is some cold glacier water. But nothing beats a sunny day in washington.
