Fabulously Floridian X Fossil

Friday, May 11, 2018




BIG things are finally starting to fall into place with my life, as well as the blog. Well, the big "thing" in my life currently is the start of summer, also I recently embarked upon a new journey with a new job! Like I mentioned in a previous post here on the blog, some big changes are coming to the look and feel of Fabulously Floridian; that isn't meant to scare anyone, it will just be more tailored to who I am and my true vision of this blog!


In my perfect, ideal fantasy that I vision myself constantly living in, I was planning on announcing the "rebrand" of my blog with this post for my collaboration with Fossil. I have been way to excited to share with you all this post I decided to go ahead and post it now instead of waiting! This partnership with Fossil has been somewhat of a surreal experience for me. Looking back to when I started Fabulously Floridian, never in a million years would I have expected that Fossil will choose me to become one of their brand partners! I cannot stress how much of an incredible honor this has been to me!



It's kind of an oxymoron that I am so braindead when it comes to new technology, considering that I run a blog lol, but fossils new, chic smartwatch (which is now on sale!), Is completely user friendly as well as being one of my new favorite accessories! Not to talk down on the Apple watch, but one of my favorite aspects of Fossils Smartwatch it holds true to the elegance of the wristwatch, opposed to something futuristic looking thing that you wear on your wrist!

Get Ready for Graduation!

Wednesday, May 2, 2018




Recently all that I have been hearing from so many people is that they are "so shocked" that this school year is coming to a close..... well not me, this year has felt like it was five years all wrapped up in one lol. ANYWAYS... I wanted to share a few dresses that caught my eye that will be perfect for high school or college graduation! It's kind of a funny story of how I got my dress, actually, It was an impulse buy. I was at some random store months before graduation, liked it for five minutes, bought it and within a few days I wanted to wear something else! My mom was so irritated with me for that very reason, that I had to wear the dress to my graduation. If I thought about it more clearly and had  some options of what to wear to graduation,  I added those personal favorites down below. Hope you all enjoy and happy dress shopping!

How to Feel Confident for Finals

Saturday, April 14, 2018



Now, I have never been the "top of my class" when it comes to grades, but I always worked as hard as I can. If your a student, I believe that this is the most awkward and uncomfortable time of the semester. I am so close to wrapping up my freshman year of college *thank god* but I have to constantly reel myself back and remind myself that I still have this last stretch left. Ahh yes, thats right, I'm taking about finals and preparation for them.

 Like I mentioned probably a million times in the past on my blog, this first year has taught me a lot about myself and more importantly how to study and pass in college. In my opinion, high school really doesn't prepare you all that well for the ungodly amount of work you will have to endure! With that being said, I thought that I would share with you all some pratical tips that I have learn (the hard way) this year that will help you succeed and feel confident about tackling your finals coming up.

Don't Compare yourself to others!: As flawed humans, we do this almost absentmindedly. We always seem to compare our own capabilities with what others can do. This can be toxic to our mindsets because instead of focusing in on what makes us who we are we start discrediting our skills, talents, even interest and fixate our thoughts on how come we didn't get the same grade as so and so, or didn't get into the same program as them. The biggest take away that I have learned in college so far is this: we are all capable of different accomplishments, as long as if you put 110% of your own effort into your work, no matter what grade you receive, it should be the most rewarding payoff. Yeah, this seems somewhat dumb to just accept (and is still incredibly hard for me to face, I need to lay off on trying to be such a perfectionist.) It take the load off your chest of beating yourself up over the fact you didn't do as well as you thought.

Find out what works best for you: Lectures to me, is the most outlandish idea I have ever heard of. I don't know, maybe their is someone out there who thrives listing to a long, 50min. lecture class, but that such as..... well that sure isn't me. Throughout this semester, I have tried many different ways of studying that works well for me.  Finding out what type of learner you are, is extremely valuable to help you out in the long haul for studying and retaining new information.

Use whats at your disposable: This somewhat piggy-backs off of what I said previously, but using all of the resources, even something as simple as asking your professor a question can help you out tremendously with your finals. In our age of technology, it is seriously easier than ever to find out more information about concepts that you couldn't understand. Videos, study groups, etc. can make you feel more prepared, and take the stress of studying.

Game plan: Finally, create a plan for yourself. A plan for how and when you are going to study for each class. Luckily, I have two classes that don't require a "typical" final. Creating even just a mental plan for how and when your going to study will make things seem less intimidating, you can even start with the easy stuff first lol.

Good luck everyone, hope this helps!

What I Can't Live Without!

Friday, April 6, 2018




A few weeks ago, I received Fossils latest hybrid watch. Lemme be the first to say, I am in love with it! This post isn't sponsored, I simply just want to share my love for this beautiful, rose gold watch! I never leave the house without wearing a watch (even if the battery needs to be replaced!) I always feel somewhat naked if I walk out the door without one on!


  By no means do I consider myself a lucky person, If anything I have terrible luck. I would never bet on myself... for anything! The stars were somehow aligned for me a few weeks back, I was picked from Fossil in a random drawing, that's how I received this beautiful watch!


  It's insane how complex and interesting this watch is. From first glance, it looks as your standard wrist watch. As my curiosity started wondering around about how to work the watch, I realized that you connect it to its app that it is connected with! My mind was blown. It's the little things in life lol.  Once I synced my watch to the app, I was allowed to pick and choose the different functions for each of the three buttons on the watch. My Fossil watch traces my steps throughout the day, I can take pictures with it, as well as play my music straight from the watch!



Shop the watch I received and ones similar down below!
