If you're a luckier person than I and you actually have today off work, I hate you.

Kidding. Kinda. President's Day is probably one of my least favorite days of the year. I work at a financial institution so we are closed on all federal holidays (eh hem, today), but we have a mandatory all employee meeting every year on President's Day, so I still have to go in to work. Womp womp. C works for a bank, so he is off today and it is absolutely and completely NOT FAIR. But shopping is great therapy and there are SO MANY President's Day sales going on right now, so I'll be fine! I rounded up some of my favs + a few of my sale picks below!


14 Things to Look for in a Husband

Oklahoma blogger Amanda Martin shares 14 things to look for in a husband in honor of Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day to you! Yesterday was my wonderful husband's birthday and today is THE day of love so I thought it was only natural to devote this post to him! Last year on Valentine's Day I shared 14 Reasons I Love My Husband (all of those still hold true - I'm seriously the luckiest!) .... today, I want to share 14 Things to Look for in a Husband. 14 because it's February 14th, clearly :)

I'm gonna be honest, I kissed a few too many frogs before finding a prince. Some of them weren't so bad (they just weren't so "right" either) but others....yikes! All that to say, I truly believe that there really is someone out there that is made for you. They say marriage is work, yes, there is some give and take, but it shouldn't be hard work or strenuous work...ya know? The right relationship should come naturally and be a perfect fit for both of your personalities, characters and lifestyles.

An Honest Rothy's Review

Blogger Amanda's OK shares an honest review of Rothy's The Point

Hi Friends! Happy Monday! I hope your week is off to a great start. I got a pair of Rothy's for Christmas and no lie, every single time I wear them, someone asks my thoughts on them! I shared a little bit about them in my January Favorites post, but thought I would dive in and give you a full, honest Rothy's review. I'm not sparing any details! I have The Point style in Persimmon, for reference, but they also have a loafer, a sneaker, a standard [ballerina] flat and a TON of fun colors and designs to choose from. I'm totally crushing on the camo, the zebra and aaaall the leopards. I'd take a pair in every color, really!

For a little background, Rothy's are made from water bottles. The company has been in business for three years and they have already taken 20 million plastic bottles and repurposed them into flats. How's that for going green?! There is no waist throughout the entire shoe making process! People rave about their Rothy's for work, for travel, and for everything in between, but they're PRICEY ($145 a pair) so it's understandable to question if they live up to the hype. Below are the questions I had prior to owning a pair that I thought would be helpful in deciding if they're worth the splurge!

Valentine's Day Outfit Inspo

Blogger Amanda's OK Shares ideas on what to wear for Valentine's Day
Heart Sweater c/o Chicwish | Pink Maxi Skirt c/o Chicwish | Gucci Purse, Dupe Here | Similar Michael Kors Flats | Lips, color is Twig

The month of love is here! Some love it, others hate it. I'm neutral. I actually haven't been single on Valentine's Day since I was 14 (HA!) but I've also never been overly into celebrating the holiday. Now-a-days, Cole's birthday is the day before Valentine's so we celebrate that big and lay low on V-Day. Note that that also means I celebrate his birthday in lieu of Galentine's Day, but I wouldn't trade it for the world (I could be persuaded to trade it for chocolate cake, though .... I kid I kid).

Our Valentine's Day tradition is to order Chinese take out and eat at home by candlelight! It's become something that we look forward to each year. We exchange small gifts (like, $30 a person) because Christmas is in December, my birthday is in January and his is in February so we are usually gifted out come Valentine's! But, those small gifts are often things we put a lot of thought into and they are always fun and special.

Even though we don't go out on a Valentine's date, I still like to dress the part leading up to it and revel in all things love! Any excuse to wear pink and eat candy....I'm here for it! I rounded up some Valentine's Day outfit inspo including comfy PJs, date night looks and cozy matter what your plans are, I gotchu!

How I Use Hartz Dog Pads for Large Breed Dogs

Blogger Amanda's OK shares why she uses Hartz Dog Pads for her large breed dogs

Thank you Hartz for sponsoring this post. Hartz Dog Pads are America’s #1 brand of dog pads and are available nationwide at Walmart, Amazon and your local grocery store.

When most people think of "Dog Pads," potty training probably comes to mind. Though they work great for puppies who are learning and small apartment dogs who are inside all day, dog pads can be used for dogs of all shapes and sizes! They serve more of a purpose than just potty pads.

I have two large breed dogs: a Bernese Mountain Dog, Kylo, and a Great Pyrenees Mix, Chloe (you can follow them on Instagram here). I love them to pieces and will always be a large breed dog kind of girl, but my goodness they track in so much dirt! My house, my floors, my car, my's all covered in dog hair, leaves, dirt and muddy paw prints. I promise I clean my house every weekend, but you wouldn't know it if you dropped by on a random Thursday! Throughout the winter when there is snow, sleet, etc., it has been extra hard to keep things clean.....that is, until I started using Hartz Dog Pads!

January Favorites

Blogger Amanda Martin of Amanda's OK shares her favorite new additions from January
one | two | three | four | five | six | seven | eight | nine | ten | eleven | twelve | thirteen | fourteen

Truth time, ya'll. Last year, I think I started 75% or more of my monthly favorites posts with "How is [insert month] already over?" This month though.......... I feel like this is January 74th! I think October-November-December as a whole went by faster than January did. Maybe because I'm not eating sweets during the work week and trying not to drink alcohol this month.........that's probably it.

Needless to say, I've found a TON of new products this month that I've been loving! I received a lot of Sephora and Ulta gift cards in my stocking at Christmas so I stocked up on beauty products + there are a few Christmas gifts that I have truly loved and had yet to share. Check them all out below!


Classic Jewelry for Valentine's Day

OKC Blogger Amanda's OK shares ideas for Valentine's Day gifts
Wrap Top, on sale for $10, runs big | Button Up Skinny Jeans (Size Down) | Lace Bralette | Cognac Pumps | Pearl Necklace & Earring Set, c/o Roma Jewelry, use code AMANDASOK20 for 20% off | Lips, color is Velvet Teddy 

Jackie Kennedy once said, "Pearls are always appropriate," and I couldn't agree more. For as long as I can remember, pearls have been my favorite type of jewelry. Don't get me wrong, I would never be disappointed in diamonds or morganite, but there is something about pearls that screams class and sophistication and I'm here for it. Plus, they literally match everything. Pearls are always appropriate because they can be dressed up or dressed down, which I love, and they are slightly more budget friendly than other gemstones (a nice bonus!).

With Valentine's Day on the horizon, it's time to start thinking about gifts. Whether that be gifts to give a Galentine or gifts to put on your own wish list (hint hint, hubby). I have been wearing this Freshwater Pearl set from Roma Jewelry non-stop lately and thought it was such a classic piece of jewelry for Valentine's Day, either to give or receive! The best part? The set is marked down to only $39 so it fits any budget!

My Top 6 Favorite Candles

Oklahoma City Blogger Amanda Martin of Amanda's OK share her top six favorite candles
Similar Coffee Candle

Confession: I am addicted to candles. I have a cupboard that is stocked year-round and, as my husband will confirm, I never pass up a good candle sale. I've tried my fair share of scents (some winners, some not) but there are a few select brands and scents that I keep coming back to. I thought I'd share my favorite candles below in case you are on the hunt for a new one! I think candles make such good gifts for housewarmings or birthdays, especially when paired with something else small (like a mug, wine glasses, a throw or a tea towel).

I burn candles year round, but there is something extra cozy about lighting a candle in the middle of winter and cozying up with a blanket, a hot beverage and a good book (or a big puppy, that works, too). Since it's been so chilly lately, I thought this was the perfect time to share my 6 favorite candles with you. So, without further ado.....

An Honest T3 Micro Review

Blogger Amanda's OK shares her experience with T3 Micro products
Amour Sweatshirt, on sale for $17 | Faux Leather Leggings | Nike Juvenates | Designer Dupe Sunnies | Lips, color is Patina

Hi friends! I got a T3 Micro curling iron and hairdryer for Christmas - both had been on my wishlist for yeeeears. I always wondered if they were worth the cost / really as good as bloggers said they were. I received SO MANY questions on some recent Instagram stories about how I curl my hair, so I thought I would dive in and talk about my experience with T3! There will be a curl tutorial coming to my Instagram stories soon....stay tuned!

This is 100% NOT-sponsored, by the way. It's a completely honest review! I received the products as Christmas gifts and T3 has no idea I exist or am writing this.

29 and Feeling Fine

Amanda Martin, OKC Blogger, turns 29 in style with a leopard skirt and chic sweater top.

29 and feeling fine.....that's how the saying goes, right? Ignore the fact that my knees are now all of a sudden aching after a few squats and my hip hurts when it's raining..... I also might go to bed at nine and wake up before the's fine.

I turned 29 yesterday and spent all weekend celebrating! A little too hard, actually. Hangovers hurt more than they used to. I am so blessed to have a wonderful husband who baked me beautiful chocolate peanut butter mousse cake, two gorgeous best friends who treated me to brunch and a fantastic family who drove two hours to have lunch with me! So yeah, I am 29 and doing just fine. I have quite a few more things to check off my 30 before 30 list in the next 365 days........I'm not overly confident that I will succeed!
