Have a Healthier Period Experience & Give Back to Girls in Need With Cora

I've been trying to live healthier and in a way that is more eco-conscious and promotes green living. So when I recently discovered Cora pads and tampons, I decided to switch to the brand for my feminine hygiene needs. So far, I've been very happy!


Not only are the products better for my body and the planet (they are made using ethically sourced organic cotton), the company is committed to giving back to girls and women on a global scale. With nearly 25 million women in the U.S. living below the poverty line, and young girls in third world countries not having access to feminine care products, Cora has partnered with non-profits across the country to provide more than 100,000 products to women in need in the U.S. and gives a percentage of profits to support young girls in Kenya through the ZanaAfrica Foundation. For every month's supply purchased from Target, Cora gives a month's supply of sustainable pads to a girl in need in India.

Cora is also a huge proponent of ec…

Fun Graphic Tees For Making a Statement

I don't know about you, but I love graphic tees. They are comfortable, versatile and are a fun way to make a statement. I would definitely put the graphic tee into the "summer staple" category for every woman's wardrobe. I'm half surprised my closet isn't full of graphic tees! If you're a graphic tee fanatic too, here are a bunch that are super cool!

Living in LIVELY + $10 Off Promo Code

If you haven't heard, LIVELY is the newest place online to find comfortable, stylish bras and underwear at reasonable prices. The brand sells bras and bralettes that are perfect for every day -like the t-shirt bra- as well as a few that are lovely for special occasions. And what's really awesome is that the sizes range from XS-L for some styles and all the way up to 38DDD in specialty styles. There is a fit guide on the website to help you figure out which size works best for your measurements.

I've been wanting to try LIVELY for awhile now, and I finally decided to start with one of their simplest, most practical designs. I went with The Triangle Bralette in Heather Gray and so far, so good!


Since I generally wear a 34A/34B, I ordered a size small. And even though this bra isn't meant to give your cleavage a boost, mine looked much bigger! (No, I'm not complaining.) And it is seriously sooo comfortable! My one and only complaint is that this bra is not available …

I've Got the Gingham Blues

Here in the south, gingham is a print most fashionistas have in their closet. And after snagging this adorable Stay Sweet Gingham Top from Bella Ella Boutique, I'm definitely going to be adding more of the print to my wardrobe! I love the ruffled style of this top and the way it gently floats away from my body. It's such a versatile piece that can be worn many different ways.



This top can be paired with jeans, a skirt, capri pants or shorts. It works for lunch dates with the ladies or a casual night out with your fella. It's so feminine and yet so fun too!
Here's a close up of the color and details. (Don't you just love the ruffles?)

There's nothing like lounging in the southern summer sun.

I already had a pair of royal blue suede pumps to wear with the top- and they matched perfectly. Score!

A Muah-velous Shirt

You guys- I'm so excited about this post! After nearly six years of having this blog, I finally found the perfect shirt to represent it. I was totally stoked when I stumbled upon this Kiss Me Lips Graphic Tee from The Pink Lily Boutique. It's absolutely perfect for a blog titled Leather & Lip Gloss!

And so, here's how I chose to wear the shirt for the first time. (I plan to share many more ways to style it in the future!) Hope you love this casual summer outfit that I put together.

Here's a shot of the shirt in all its glory. It's super soft and comfy!

You can't go wrong with a graphic tee and a classic pair of jeans. I paired mine with some striped canvas sneakers to complete the look.

It was such a gorgeous day outside, I just had to go with outdoor shots. Greenery and brick walls make great backdrops for photos.

What's great about this shirt is that you can wear it no matter what mood you're in!
Rock it when you're in a sassy/sexy mood.
