Hi everyone!!

SO lets cut to the chase!
It has been made VERY clear to me that y'all absolutely loveeeeee knowing where I'm at and what I'm doing haha and getting up dates on me!
Literally my page views nearly quadrupled y'all!! I was NOT expecting that at all, but it is definitely more of a push to do posts with updates! LOL.

Let me talk about this cute outfit then I will do a little pup-date and accutane update!

So I've been having these shorts and these wedges for a little minute now and they are truly staples in my closet for the spring summer. THESE shoes are SO comfortable I kid you not, and they easily dress up any outfit. I do not regret spending a pretty penny on them!

Okay, now I've gotten a ton of questions about a swimsuit I recently wore, which is currently sold out but I will keep on the look out for if it re-stocks!
BUT I just ordered THIS swimsuit from Missguided, and I'm in love. I ordered a size 0 because I wanted it more fitted but I am not normally a 0! I think it is so cute. I'm unsure about the bottoms though as it does come off a lil cheeky lol. But we shall see! Oh and at Missguided, students get 40% off!! Thank ya girl later😉

[Pup-date]
We ended up getting sweet Nola a whole week early and we were seriously so happy😍 She has completely melted my heart. My other pup, Bella still has my whole heart lol but Nola is such a cutie as well. I love her so much! And I know Cody is obsessed. I planned on doing a little post to introduce her soon! :)

[Accutane Update]
So it has been nearly 3 weeks on Accutane! I do not take the actual "accutane" brand because there are tons of lawsuits on it. My brand is actually Myorisan, but the generic medication is still Isotretinoin.
The only real change I see is chapped lips all the time, dry throat, a little dry skin,  and I don't have to wash my hair every 2 days (#blessed)! My face is not that oily anymore and it is a bit dry, I have to use a small amount of moisturizer and I can't wash it too much. But nothing serious!

The other big thing I want to mention is anxiety, depression, and fatigue...these were very big deals the first 2 weeks on the meds and they were very much so happening- but I found solutions that worked for me! I will do a 1 month update in about a week, with pictures! Lol. And all the in's and out's to fill you in on everything.
I just wanted to give a short update for now to let you know a few tid bits of info!
***Also, the level of vulnerability that I am taking on by posting pictures of my skin w/o makeup makes me cringe. But I'm honestly thankful I even have the ability and opportunity to take the medicine, and if I can, why not be able to let y'all see how much it helps me and give you all the most absolute info I could possibly give you, to help you make the decision to take it or not!***


I hope you enjoyed this cute little summer outfit/pup-date/accutane update haha! Just threw a lil bit of erryyythang in today!

Let me know if you have any questions and I'll see you soon :)

LIFE LATELY: PART 2

"Where's B been?!"

The question I've even been asking myself lately!

*** You might want to grab a coffee and get comfy for this one, it's a long post!***

SO much has been going on, or at least it seems like there has been and I had felt the need to take a serious step back from blogging. Mainly because I didn't want to put half a$* (excuse my language) content on my blog just because I wasn't able to put the fair amount of time into it, and I also felt that other things in my life were more important at the time. So I decided to step back to give myself the space I needed, in order to focus on other stuff!

SO, I bet you're wondering what "stuff" I've been up to, and what's been consuming all my time.

Here we go :)
First things first, the main reason I needed to take a step back was the fact that I needed to soon decide what the hell I'm gonna do with my life.
Simple, right?! Negative. 
Yeah, I know.....try answering that yourself when you DON'T KNOW THE ANSWER. It's definitely not cool, and it is a definite set back. I felt like I was always trying to "figure out" what my school/life plan was and I truly needed to focus on doing my research and applying to other nursing programs/schools and really getting a plan for my life come Fall 2017! But, just so you know...I do in fact - finally, have a plan. Just in case you were wondering😉
And I wanted to mention that I do realize I am young, and I have allllll the time in the world to figure out what I want to do, but this girl is burnt out on school and is SO ready to be done. I could graduate with a bachelors just from all my dang credits, and I'll already be a senior this fall. So even though I know I have time, I am so ready to graduate!!

Secondly, $$$$$!
Believe it or not, I love to shop, splurge, and spend - but honey it takes mulahhh (money), money I didn't have or need to spend, plus I have bills to pay - which means...no new pretty clothes or accessories for B! :(
But behold, while I was taking time off from blogging I had a lot of time to be thinking about different types of posts I can do with the blog other than fashion, so I'm excited to be incorporating some of them in soon!

Now for a few life updates and things I wanted to mention! 
I don't know if you remember me mentioning a while back, a sweet surprise that Cody is so generously paying for and letting us get - and she is seriously the sweetest little baby girl ever.
Me and Cody are happily adding a sweet Golden Retriever pup to the fam!
We already love her SO much!! We can't take her home quite yet, so I don't want to share pictures, but I will soon enough! Anyways, she's our little butter ball and we couldn't be more happy to have her sweet self with us :)

And lastly, I wanted to fill y'all in on a little extra stuff that's going on!
As some of you know, and I've said before on here, I have struggled with terrible acne, big pores, OILY skin (oh its oily), and I have taken many many antibiotics over the years in order to lessen my breakouts or eliminate my acne all together and nothing has worked. I have been soooo hesitant to go to extra mile and take Accutane, but I've decided it's pretty much my last resort and hopefully works out for me.
With that being said, I have started taking accutane recently and planned on doing updates on my skin/the side affects. The products that work for my while on it, etc. The only thing is I am SO hesitant to put pictures of me with absolutely no makeup on, all in my face, showing everything on my skin - because to be honest this is one of my biggest insecurities and a lot of people have never seen me without makeup on! So I'm going to have to grow on that, but seriously, if you'd like me to do posts like this because you're considering taking Accutane or are just interested, please let me know! It seriously helps immensely! Comment on instagram (@brandilynanne), email, comment on my blog post, whatever! I'd love to hear from you :)

PHEW, that's a super long post. But after being M.I.A. for almost 2 months I think y'all deserved an update!😊

I DO have a few up coming looks and I planned on putting up and a survey soon to get more feedback from y'all! Stay tunned! Hope you're enjoying your week :)

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 :)
