B.A.D. Girl Style: Tiger Power

This summer my go to favorite item of clothing was a muscle tank. I love the comfortable fit and boyish cut. I would take old tees and cut them into muscle tanks too. It’s a great way to upcycle your clothing! This tee I am wearing is from Zara and I looveee it.   Another trend I am currently obsessed with is tying shirts around your waist. Its so 90’s grunge and as a true 90’s kid I am happy to see this style being accepted back into the fashion community for now.  The one I am wearing in this photo is my bf’s sweater that I accidentally shrunk when washing so its mine now. Sorry babe! My mom was with me while taking photos and she always bugs me to feature Knuckles, our family pet so here he is! Knuckles is a Welsh Corgi and he’s is a total ham. I always told my mom she should of got him a pet agent. Outfit Details: Top: Zara, Pants: Urban Outfitters, Shoes: H&M Online, Necklace: …

Shoe Cult Collection by Nasty Gal

The fashion world and shoe whores everywhere are buzzing because Nasty Gal dropped their very first shoe collection, Shoe Cult by Nasty Gal yesterday.  I checked out the line and while the shoes are all really cute I was surprised at how the designs weren’t more unique. Nasty Gal is a brand that is known for setting trends and being different and I found the shoes to be very similar to what is already out on the market. I picked some of my favorites to feature in this post, but none of the shoes have me saying “OMGEE I NEEEEED!”. The collection is affordable with prices ranging from $40 to $158 with the bulk of the designs being under $100.  I am curious as to the quality of the shoes because you can never really tell from photos. They have all the body styles covered from biker boots to pumps and everything in between, like these super cute Blazing Boom Sneakers.   I am on the hunt for new birthday shoes and may just pick …

B.A.D. Girl How To: Layer Necklaces

Layering jewelry pieces is one of my favorite things to do to make an outfit interesting! I know  a lot of people get scared to do this and I refuse to let any B.A.D. Girl shy away from a trend so here ya go! Step 1: Start with a Blank Canvas The top you wear should showcase the necklaces you are wearing and not be too busy. I recommend a classic tee or tank. Step 2: Decide on Your Look The pieces you will use all depend on the look you are going for that day, but try to keep the general style of your necklaces the same. Don’t be scared to mix metals like gold and silver together, it adds dimension to your look. Step 3: Pick Out A Statement Piece I recommend picking a statement necklace or a choker. This piece should be the thickest and/or boldest and should rest on your collar bone. I am wearing the Sun & Moon Choker I designed for MyTee B.A.D. Step 4: Decide on the Number …

Give Your Summer Wardrobe a Makeover

Hey B.A.D. Girls! Can you believe summer is finally here?! If you’re looking to update your closet  and give your wardrobe a summer makeover, but aren’t sure where to start, take a look at my top tips for what to wear this season. SHORTS I know a lot of females who don’t wear shorts in the summer!  It’s time for you to kill those daunting thoughts and flash a little leg.  This summer, shorts for women are a big trend. From high-waisted tailored shorts to trendy city shorts, there will definitely be a style to suit you. CHINOS While there are those who forgo trousers altogether in the summer, sticking with shorts, skirts and dresses instead, there is usually one exception to this rule: chinos. Perfect for relaxing and looking stylish on cooler days or evenings, grab yourself a pair and embrace the summer vibes. DRESSES There is nothing more feminine than a gorgeous summer frock. Whether you’re being forced to sit in the office all day, hitting a music festival, wandering around town or …

B.A.D. Girl Playlist: Top Workout Jams

I have seriously realized the importance of a killer playlist to motivate your work out especially when you are doing cardio. So I decided to share with you all some of my favorite jams that I currently have on rotation while I am running my ass off on the treadmill! Warm Up Songs: 1. Daft Punk & Pharrell – “Get Lucky“ 2. Robin Thicke ft Pharrell & T.I. – “Blurred Lines“ Upbeat Cardio Tracks: 3. Daddy Yankee – “Limbo“ 4. Havana Brown ft. Pitbull – “ We Run The Night“ Cool Down Jams: 5. Ciara – ” Body Party“ 6. Justin Timberlake – “Strawberry Bubblegum“ I find myself more times than not listening to the Daddy Yankee track during my entire cardio session sometimes because it keeps me so pumped. The song maintains a fast pace the entire time, which is perfect for keeping my energy up while I sprint my life away. Plus, my bf and I met the guy who wrote the track while we were in Puerto Rico for my birthday last …

B.A.D. Girl Tip: Do One Thing Different

Sometimes all it takes is one small act to spark change in your life so  I am daring you, yes YOU, to do just one thing different this week.  It could be anything, it just has to be out of the ordinary.  Perhaps it’s something you have been meaning to start doing like waking up 10 minutes earlier or  taking the time to write up your business idea. Or maybe you want to do something you have never done like pay for a strangers coffee or call out from work and spend the day learning how to do something on your bucket list. Do it for the possibility. The possibility that if you make one minor change you may set the stage for major fulfillment. Sometimes even the smallest shift in thinking or doing can create the biggest opportunity. What are you going to do different this week?

B.A.D. Girl Tip: Score Extra Credit

Who doesn’t have a love/hate relationship with credit cards? I know I do, so here is a good tip for managing your cards and keeping your credit score on the up and up! It’s important to keep your oldest card active as long as possible to establish consistently good credit history, even if you only use it once or twice a year. If you have multiple cards that were opened around the same time make sure you choose to keep the best card open and active. For example, an Amex or MasterCard should remain open as opposed to a Macy’s or Victoria’s secret credit card. Also make sure you don’t close more than one account per year or your credit score will get docked. How do you manage your credit cards? xx Nicole Let’s Connect: Bloglovin  Facebook  Twitter  Instagram
