Hey Lovelies

So Sunday I sat here thinking about what I'm lusting after this month, and realized I am currently going crazy over backpacks. I sat here and went through different websites trying to see what I can find, and I found some pretty interesting bags to my taste. I also realized that I do not have any in my closet and need to get some ASAP, there are outfits that need to be planned around these bags. now I'm sitting here begging my guy for at least one of these bags to be in the mix of my craziness called my closet, here  are some of my choices from some websites you have all heard of.

These first set of bags that you are seeing is from Topshop

The second set is from Romwe

The third set is from Asos

This last set of backpacks are from MissKL

So these are my preferences, some of these picks may not  be up to other people's taste but what can I do. I am going mad with wanting one of these bags in my closet and when I do it will definitely be on here. Thanks for stopping by and make sure you check me out YouTube @Realitychecknique.

XOXO Nique, <3

OMG!!! Shoes everywhere

Hey guys I'm back with another post and this one is on all the shoes I've accumulated from October-November is serious. I can't seem to go online with checking out a shoe site, one of  my favorite sites to shop from is Shoedazzle. There shoes are affordable and really cute, whenever I go on there I'm always scouting for a new addition to my shoe family. Here are pictures of my three most recent purchase, the first one is called Remell and I got them in black. I got them because they were so different and so me, I cant wait to style them.

The second shoe is ISELA and I got those in Brown/Camel color, I found them to be quite sexy. They remind a little of the Phillip Lim 3:1 over the knee boots and since I can" afford them this will do for me.
The third shoe that I purchased (LIGHTEN_Silver) is for the Spring and Summer months, for those days when you don't feel like wearing heels or sneakers or even boots for that matter.

The next site that I shop on Is, they also have affordable name brand items for the whole family. From sneakers to shoes to clothes, I love this site. I ordered a pair of Dr. Marten's biker boots.
My last site is Solestruck, I went on there to find these boots that I saw on Gracie's channel Uglyfaceofbeauty and instantly fell in love and had to get me a pair. 

So these are all the shoes that I purchased within a month and I am very excited to wear them and style them. Look for them on my youtube channel, thanks for stopping by. BYE!!

My Obsession

Hey lovelies!!! 

I was sitting on my couch thinking of my current obsession, and of course it has something to do with shoes. So my shoes obsessions is loafers, I feel that they are a must have in your collection. These shoes are ideal for the woman on the go or for the woman that's not into heels so much. The best part about loafers is that they come in many colors, being that I shop on a budget I have this one particular site that I go on ever so often and that is If your looking for a bargain, they got it. So without any further distractions from what I'm typing here are five loafers that I would love to have in my closet.

Stuart Weitzman - Geek
BRUNO MAGLI - Romualda

Dr. Martens - Elia Loafer
Bass - Fleur
Sam Edelman - Linsley

My Wishlist from Forever 21+

So right about now I'm going through some of my favorite websites and seeing some stunners that I would like to style. What I want to do is put up a wishlist of things I'm lusting after, but the way my bank account is setup that's not going to happen right now. The way I see it if its still there when I go back then its meant to be, if not maybe next time.

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs!!!

Hey my Lovelies!!!!

So yesterday I went to work in this cute little number and got some good feed back, and funny enough it was very fitting for the day I had. First I went to an outing with my clients (I work with people with developmental disabilities) for our company, it was more like an end of the summer kind of thing which I had a nice time. The second part of my day, I went to the movies with my family to see "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2" it was my 5 year old son idea to see it. The movie to me was not that funny, I know you might be thinking but isn't that a kid movie why are you trying to enjoy it they have some really funny and cute kids movie and this was not it for me (own personal opinion). So here is my look of the day!!!

Jacket: Lane Bryant | Dress: Forever 21+ | Belt: Forever 21+ | Leggings: Iheartposhshoppe | Boots: Dr. Martens
