Hi y'all, welcome back :) 

It's been a minute since I've posted last because of a few things going on in life! I spent a few ton of hours last week changing some things & trying to figure out some stuff on the website that I liked and didn't like! And my little sister had her high school awards night and graduation last week plus I worked nearly 50 hours, SO it's been a ton of fun but I'm glad to be back on track😊

I wanted to share this bright and easy outfit for a dressy, spring look. If you are a designer dupe guru then you'll love this post! 
One thing I love is finding an item that looks exactly like it's the designer or "name brand" one, but is not nearly anywhere the price of it! 

THESE shoes are the perfect dupe for the Valentino Rockstud Flats everybody is loving right now, but you'd never guess that they aren't the real thing and your wallet surely won't be paying hundred of dollars for the designer. 
Don't get me wrong, I'd love to own the real ones one day, but for now my bank account just isn't cutting it and I'm not ashamed to own the look a like! Gotta work with what ya got ;) 

Also my bag, HERE, is only like $35 and is really structured and durable, I have loved it for spring so far! 

And you might notice that my hair is longer and darker in the past weeks posts and thats just because I haven't taken any pictures with my "newer" hair since I've gotten it done!! 

Hopefully this week I will have another post or two up so stay tuned & have a great week :)

EASY PREPPY/SPORTY EVERYDAY LOOK








Dress: H&M wearing a size Small- color no longer available- but diff. color HERE (and similar option HERE) | BraletteHERE | ShoesHERE | Sunglasses: HERE | PurseHERE | WatchHERE | EarringsHERE | BraceletsHERE/ The Styled Collection | 

Happy Friday friends💗

I pretty much live in athleisure attire because of my job and if I'm on the run, I want to be comfortable! Who doesn't?!
So this look here is definitely a go to sporty but easy look of mine. And for some reason I always go for black and white, I don't know why haha maybe I'm just basic lol!

And speaking off, you may have noticed that I made a few changes to my website, I got tired of the colors lol and of courseeee I went with black and white- with a hint of pink still. I may be changing the font of my posts too because sometimes I find it difficult to read, let me know if you think the same!

I also tried something else out this week (boy this week has been ALL about change apparently haha)  and have blogged every single day, except for weekends!
I always seem to think that y'all are getting bored with that or it's simply toooo much blogging so I wouldn't want to go into posting overload. And of course I want to be blogging about stuff I like, but I'd rather try to put up a post a week on the topics that you all are more interested in, so I may put up a survey on a post next week or something to get ideas on that :)

This weekend should be pretty fun as well! My sister and a bunch of her friends, along with me and Cody - the "old folks", are all going to see a concert outta town and I'm pretty excited! I've never really been a concert kinda girl, but the little road trip with all the peeps and ole' Coco should be a good time.
I'll be posting a little bit of it on my Instagram stories (@brandilynanne) and Snapchat (brandilynanneamorello) if you want to keep up with it all!

I hope you enjoyed this full week of blog posts from me and had a fantastic week!!

LITTLE CHANGES, BIG SALES

Hi sweets! 
I wanted to do something different today and show you a little change I've made. If you've already looked at the pictures lol, then you'll see that I changed up - and tried to freshen up my mane! 
(Keep reading after the pictures!)
amazing-brunette-balayage

amazing-brunette-balayage

See to you, this may seem dramatic because I didn't chop off 10 inches of hair or dye it red...

BUT I'll have you know that it's kinda a big deal to me cause' I've never had my hair professionally (I'll explain below why I emphasized lol) colored and I do not get my hair cut! 
Which is probably an issue that I need to get checked out, LOL. Because my hair was so unhealthy and instead of the 3 inches I got cut off, I know I needed another 2-3 chopped, but I just couldn't budge :( I love my long hair!  

On to the hair details - 
So Aja {pronounced like Asia} (my hairdresser), definitely helped a girl out! For starters, I literally had anxiety because like I said above, I've never had my hair colored.....the right way. 

Funny story actually - So I have had my hair colored before, but I wouldn't necessarily say that bleaching and boxing dying my hair TEAL technically counts. Hahahah!!! I'm laughing at the fact that I actually managed to get away with that. 
I was a Sophomore or Junior in high school and y'all remember that trend that went around where you would color the bottom portion of your hair?! So when you wore a ponytail it looked like half your hair was a bright color? 
Yeah that was me stuntin' the teal pony' back in the day, lawd what was I thinking lol. I seriously WISH I had a picture of this to show y'all. 

Anyways, this is what Aja did to my hair, in her words because I do not understand hair talk lol. 
---> "I used sunlights clay lightener & 40 vol to balayage & toned with 8GI & 6T in redken shades EQ. Haircut wise, I cut 3 inches off the perimeter & did "hidden" round layers!"

I would definitely check her out if you live in or around the Baton Rouge/Prairieville/Gonzales area! She is so good and the sweetest girl, I trust you'll truly be happy when you leave, as I was.
