This post is sponsored by Asoph.

Hey everybody! Happy Saturday! Okay so I know I say this every time but seriously this is my favorite Asoph collab thus far!!! They sent over 5 pieces and all 5 are the perfect summer/fall transition type pieces! The best part about this collab is that I love how expensive everything looks but in reality it is so affordable and when you use my code eri25 at Asoph, you save even more! Let’s dive in!

First up we have this beautiful Rib knit maxi dress. I love everything about this dress from the Mocha color, to the belt detail, and even the slit! This is a perfect piece to wear while we transition to fall because even though it’s a heavier material, it is still lightweight and the slit gives it versatility!

Girl!!!! I was so excited when I got these jeans because these are literally my dream jeans, and I love love love the ankle detailing! I love the light distressing throughout the jeans, and the medium wash adds a touch of chic but street vibes! So me! You need these jeans in your life, they are so comfy, so stretchy, and the perfect bottoms to go with any top!

Can we talk boho chic for a second?!! Ahh I’m obsessed with this dress, I now have four of these dresses, all in a different pattern/color! That’s how much I love it! This dress in another great summer/ fall transitioning piece because it is lightweight and airy but the long sleeves and the length add coverage and warmth! Ahhh stop reading this and just RUN to get yours haha!

You guys know how much I love off the shoulder tops, and you know how much I love bodysuits so it is no surprise that I had to get this beautiful white, off the shoulder bodysuit! I love how stretchy, versatile, and comfy it is! Pair this bodysuit with the jeans and I’m telling you sis, it’s a look!

Lastly we have what I like to call the “booty popping pants” hehe! I love these flared pants because they are a staple for everyday cuteness and comfort! You could easily pair these pants with the off the shoulder white bodysuit or even a light cardigan for a more comfy fall look!

See! I told you, Asoph has you covered!

Everyone needs a little black dress in their closet and I highly recommend this one! I love the waist tie detail (click here to see the dress in better lighting, and more detail). This beautiful dress is so buttery soft and stretchy, I am wearing a size 1x and it fit like a glove! Since this is a black dress, have fun with the accessories, maybe animal print shoes or a bold color like red! I prefer gold jewelry so I would accessorize using dainty gold pieces! Keep it simple and cute!

This Loose Fit Tee is so so cute! I love how stretchy and flowy it is! The material is amazing and it would go perfectly with distressed denim and sneakers! This is the perfect summer/fall transition piece and I love it! Highly recommend!

Maxi dresses are in all year round and this Cami Maxi is perfect, not too thin and not too thick which means you can wear it alone in the summer months and then layer it up in the fall and winter! I am actually wearing a size Large and it fits! Love love love this olive color, but they have a few other colors too, and if I were you I would snag them up!

Lastly we have this camo t-shirt dress and I am obsessed! Y’all know I am a military wife so I had to throw in the camo! This beautiful dress is a knit material which means you can wear it all year round! It’s the perfect on the go/ errand dress and I paired it with vans and my LV neverfull! Such a vibe! 😍

The Bundle Attack!

Hey everybody!

Happy Monday! Today’s post is all about my new hair! I have had this hair from the The Bundle Attack for a while now and I’m really loving it!

Let’s get into the details! I made this beautiful unit using the Body Wave Bundles! I used three bundles and a frontal and I am so in love with the quality!

First off, I want to talk about the packaging. I love how neat, organized and clean the packaging was, everything came bundled up and nothing was damaged or missing! The shipping was so fast, and the owner had great communication skills!

Now onto the hair! Girl this body wave is everything! Straight out of the package there was no weird smell, no tangling and no shedding! I was able to run my fingers straight through the hair like butter and I love how thick each bundle was!

I was so happy to see that the body wave frontal was the exact same texture, color, and quality as the bundles! A lot of times when ordering bundles and frontals, the quality and color don’t match up! Not with The Bundle Attack, they got you covered!

Lastly I want to talk about how amazing this hair looks when it’s blow dried and straightened! Omg girl! You need this hair from The Bundle Attack! I love how thick this hair looks even when straightened, I am so impressed! My unit is so soft, so smooth, and so silky!

Another plus to mention is that even after blow drying and straightening this beautiful hair and even after washing, and conditioning, this beautiful unit went back to its original wave pattern with no problem!

Thank you so much to The Bundle Attack for sending over this amazing quality hair for me to make a forever unit out of! I can’t wait to try more styles and slay! Hehe!

Hey Everybody!!!! Asoph always has the cutest pieces and every time I work with them I fall deeper in love! I have five pieces to share with you today!!! Yay let’s get into it sis!

First up we have the beautiful Hawaii Maxi Dress! I absolutely love the color and the print! You guys know I live for off the shoulder and this beautiful dress is everything. I am wearing a size 2x and it’s so figure flattering, so comfy and so so soft! I love how this maxi is to the floor length so it gives it a more dressed up, chic vibe! I would keep the accessories simple with this beauty and let the dress be the focal point!

This beautiful Flower Bloom Dress gives me boho chic vibes! I love every single thing about it!!! The flutter sleeve detail, the colors, the curved hem, the off the shoulder touch! Everything! One thing that I really love about this piece is that because of the colors, and because of the long sleeves, it can easily be a transitional piece for fall! Again, I would keep the accessories simple because the dress itself is phenomenal!

Girl!!! This Tie Front Flared Cami Top is a must-have for sure!! Omg I love it so much, it’s just so effortlessly beautiful! For a more dressed up/ luxe vibe I paired it with white jeans and my rockstud sandals but you can easily dress it down with blue jeans and sneakers! This beautiful cami is very versatile and I love the camel color!

How cute is this Strawberry swirl dress?! I love the color scheme and how relaxed but so girly it is! The back ties up and has pink tassels hanging from it and I think that’s the perfect touch! This dress is perfect for the beach, a picnic, a day with the girls and a more dressed up errand type of look! I love this one so much and every time I wear it I don’t want you I take it off!

Lastly we have the beautiful Belted Floral Print Tunic Dress! This dress is a work of art. Period. I absolutely love every single detail from the very top to the very bottom! I love that it has a matching belt to go with it, which really brings out my curves! The side slit detail on both sides is everything, and GIRL paired with the beautiful tassels, this dress is definitely one of a kind! Do yourself the favor, RUN and go get it!

Hey everybody! I decided to do a more minimal campaign with Asoph this time around and I am obsessed! I also have the cutest pair of heels to share with y’all! Yes girl Asoph has more than women’s clothes, they also have shoes, accessories, and even men’s clothing!

Let’s Dive in!

First we have this effortlessly chic black dress! Omg I love it so much! I sized up one size because I wanted the more flowly effortless look, but I didn’t have to! This dress runs true to size! I love it so much because it is so versatile, so lightweight and perfect for the summer! I dressed it up by adding hoop earrings, and the beautiful studded heels from Asoph!

I am obsessed with these heels because they look expensive but are so affordable and I love it! I highly recommend them because I love how comfortable and how chunky the clear heel is!

I have really been loving off the shoulder dresses lately, and this beautiful white dress is truly a work of art! I love how figure flattering, stretchy and effortlessly romantic this beautiful piece is! I kept the accessories gold and simple but since this is a white dress, the possibilities are endless, you could even wear pop of color accessories to really get the whole summer vibe going!

Lastly we have the perfect summer dress. I really love this dress and I got so many compliments on it! It gives me picnic vibes and what better thing to do in the summer than go on a picnic?! I sized up one size because I knew the material wouldn’t be that stretchy on bottom for my wider hips! I love that this dress is lined, the material and quality of the material is out of this world amazing! What really sold me on this dress is the tie front and I love that the straps are adjustable so if you have a smaller or wider bust this dress will work for you!

So, I have to know, what was your favorite of the four pieces? I really loved everything per usual haha! Happy Sunday beautiful people! We will chat soon!

3 BEAUTY PRODUCTS YOU NEED

You guys!!!! How are we feeling today?! It’s the middle of the week, yay!!

Today I am sharing my top 3 “beauty” must-haves; CHUB RUB, FENTY LIP GLOSS, and my TULA Hydrating Day & Night Cream!

CHUB RUB

Girl!!!!! This is a must-have for sure! If you have beautiful thick thighs, your thighs will love you for this!!! This product helps stop chafing and lasts for hours! You guys, I was skeptical at first, but girl let me tell you, I do not leave the house without applying it first and having an extra one in my bag for the just in case!

I love that CHUB RUB is all natural and has organic coconut oil in it! Most importantly though, it doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin! I highly recommend!

A bonus is that CHUB RUB can be used anywhere where your skin rubs together, not just your thighs!

TULA

Girrrrrlll! Wow. Period. I have fallen in love with TULA products, I can’t pick a favorite but I wanted to choose one product that I thought would be super beneficial for anyone, and that is the hydrating day and night cream!

First off I have to say that I love the fragrance of TULA products, not all of the products I have from them have a fragrance but a few of them do and I love love love it!!!

Whenever I use my TULA cream I instantly start glowing! I put it on before my makeup in the morning and ever since using it I have gotten so many compliments and questions on how I am glowing! The answer is TULA πŸ’™

FENTY

I am obsessed with my Fenty gloss! It comes in three shades and I have the rose nude color! It is so universal, and smells amazing and I love the packaging!

I love how hydrating this gloss is and it’s so versatile, whether you’re wearing a full out glammed make-up look or you’re just wearing mascara and brows, this lip gloss is a must-have!

That’s all I have for today beautiful!!! Thank you so much for chatting with me! I’ll see you on Friday! I hope you have the best week!

The Good, The Bad, The Ugly & The Great of Blogging ( what no one talks about)

Hey everybody!

Today’s post is a little different… who am I kidding, it’s a lot different but it’s something I need to talk about, it’s something you need to hear!

Since I like leaving off on good notes let’s start with the ugly and end with the Great.

The Ugly

The truth is you can say numbers don’t matter all you want, but at the end of the day, they do.. that’s just the ugly truth. The numbers may not matter to you, but they matter to brands, they matter to companies who want to work with you and who you want to work with!

With that being said, numbers shouldn’t matter, and you have the ability to remind yourself that deep down they really don’t. Your worth is not determined and will never be determined by how many of those small hearts you get on a small phone.

You worth is so much more than that. You mean so much more than that.

The Bad

People can spot crap. You shouldn’t be a blogger for the money, because let me tell you, if you are, you are setting yourself up for failure and disappointment. Blogging can be a emotional rollercoaster. It’s filled with other bloggers and influencers, content creators, and overall so many amazing people, that sometimes we catch ourselves comparing, doubting and questioning ourselves. It can be difficult to produce the ‘perfect’ content for your followers all while remaining true to yourself and being happy with what you are putting out in order to get these sponsorships… You wonder why someone with less following is getting campaigns that you aren’t , you wonder why someone has more following than you, you wonder and wonder and wonder. But this is why it’s important to be authentic and stay true to yourself, that way you won’t have to please others and lose yourself! You must always remember where you come from and remember why you are doing this. I find this to be very helpful when creating my content. Sometimes we simply overthink the simpliest things.

The Good

My best advice is to stay true to yourself and constantly remind yourself why you are doing what you’re doing.

That being said if your main goal is to grow and make blogging a full time job, the best tips I’ve learned are to be consistent (keep in mind this doesn’t mean you need to post everyday of every second. Remember to be present outside of social media). Next, be engaged and honest! Don’t collab with brands for the money, collab with them because you believe in their product, you believe in their mission, you believe in their purpose.

Your supporters will respect you a lot more when you genuinely promote brands and companies that you would purchase product from with your own money. I know that starting off it’s so exciting to have any and every brand send you free goodies to promote, but just remember that they are a whole company. You are one person, your brand is YOUR face, your reputation, your image. Choose wisely.

The Great

Always remind yourself why you are doing this, I cannot stress this enough! Blogging is supposed to be fun.

Blogging is fun.

It sounds so simple but you would be surprised at how many people get so caught up with producing the perfect content that they forget the most important thing, having fun. It is supposed to be fun, don’t let it stress you out!

The Great news is you are doing amazing, you are living your best life all while encouraging and inspiring others to live their best lives as well!

You have the power to change the world. Speak positive things into existence. Focus on what is important, re-prioritize. Life is way too short to get so caught up in something that really isn’t real!

The great news is that you are making a difference. You are more than sales, you are more than a swipe up feature, you are more than a comment, you are more than a like.

Your greatest power is you. Don’t ever forget it!

Now, let’s have a great week!

MY MISS LOLA OBSESSION

Hey everybody!!! You guys requested a in-depth Blog on Miss Lola, so here it is! Yay!!

I recently found out about Miss Lola and I am obsessed! This post is not sponsored but they were so kind to give me my very own code ERIXOXO so you all can save some money!

Where do I begin?! Miss Lola has everything from shoes, bags, clothing, and accessories! I am going to talk about each of the items that were gifted to me and why I love them so much!

Espadrille Galore

I have three espadrilles and they ALL are amazing quality, I have been wearing them constantly since receiving them and have had no problems! The comfort of all their shoes is out of this world girl! Highly recommend!

First up we have these designer inspired wedge espadrilles! I LOVE them! I did size up on all three of these shoes because espadrilles run small for me no matter what brand or store I get them from!

The plastic is stretchy and soft, so it makes these shoes wide foot friendly! Yaaaas!! I love these so much and I have been reaching for them way more than my Steve Madden ones, and y’all know I love my Steve Madden haha!

While we are at it, I want to mention this beautiful snakeskin clutch from Miss Lola! Girrrllll, the quality and weight of this beauty is out of this world!!! I love carrying it because it feels so luxurious! You can add the chain on like I did in the picture above, and wear it cross body or on your shoulder. Or, you can carry it like a clutch for a more casual chic vibe! I love the gold knob, honestly I love everything about this clutch!

Next we have these gorgeous scalloped espadrilles! If I was a shoe, I would be these shoes! I love the nude shade of brown that they are, I love that they are platform espadrilles and I love love love the scalloped trim!

These are probably my favorite of the three, honestly I can go on and on but just go go go RUN and go buy these! They are so versatile and so comfy!

These peep toe platform espadrilles have been my go to lately! I love the open toe look, it really dresses up my whole outfit! I love the added ankle strap and platform of course! I have walked in these all day multiple times and it literally feels like I’m walking on a cloud!

Lastly we have these beautiful gold accessories from Miss Lola and I love them!!! They have weight to them which makes them feel high end and give any outfit an extra oof! ❀️

The possibilities are endless!

The Vacay Essential

Lastly we have this beautiful palm and floral romper! It is so lightweight and honestly a summer staple! Can we just take a minute to appreciate that this romper has pockets!! Yesssss!

How I was Reminded of Self-Love

This post is sponsored by Asoph.

Hey Everybody! I have some really beautiful pieces to share with you from Asoph! Don’t forget to use my code: eri25 to save!

I would like to start off by telling you guys how much this particular campaign meant to me. It reminded me of self-love, it reminded me why I started Eri’s Lane in the first place.

When all these beautiful pieces were delivered I was so excited, I dug right in and tried them all on with no makeup on. When I looked in the mirror I felt EXTRA beautiful. I didn’t feel the need and didn’t have the want to put on my hair extensions or put any makeup on.

These pieces just felt right on my body, they complimented me perfectly. Thank you Asoph for reminding me that beauty comes from within! Thank you Asoph for creating clothes for us curvy girls to rock, because yes we are curvy, yes we are beautiful, and yes we deserve to look and feel like Queens!

With that being said, Asoph came through (per usual) so let’s dig in!

This off the shoulder white dress was simply perfection!! I love the elegant, causal, but chic vibes it gives off! The off the shoulder detail gives it a bit of sass, and flirty look, while the button down detail and the white color gives it a more innocent, natural vibe!

I kept it so simple with all of these looks because I really wanted the focus to be on natural beauty and I love how the dresses complimented and brought out my natural beauty so well!

This mixed print leopard and floral romper is everything! It is so lightweight, comfy and has a little bit of stretch!

I love that you can dress it up by adding heels, or you can dress it down by adding a cute pair of neutral sandals!

The romper is the statement piece so I would keep hair, accessories and jewelry simple but cute!

Omg!!! This coral colored off the shoulder sun dress is everything!!! I love the curved hem, I love the color, I love the bell sleeves! So chic and so stunning! This dress is so breathable and effortlessly beautiful!

You can use it as a swimsuit cover up, or even to go out with your spouse or friends and family!

I kept it simple by adding a pair of gold sandals, put my hair in a bun and I was ready to go!!

Lastly we have this beautiful red flared hem dress! PLEASE do yourself the favor and get this dress! I love the lace sleeves you guys!!! Seriously I am obsessed! This dress is out of this world comfortable, has amazing stretch and is so figure flattering!

You could wear this beauty to a wedding, to your wedding reception, downtown, and yes on a date and to dinner of course!

I loved all of these pieces, I really cannot pick a favorite!!! Which one was your favorite?! Don’t forget to tag me in your beautiful pictures! I can’t wait to see you rock them!
