A CASUAL, FAMILY DINNER LOOK

21 June 2018

It's been so nice to relax and unwind after we got home from an amazing 4 days in Chicago. For some reason I was feeling exhausted and unable to catch up on sleep for a good week after we got back. I'm not sure if it was due to the time change or just because we had been so busy walking around every day. You know those moments when you feel


DAYS 3 & 4 OF OUR CHICAGO ADVENTURE

18 June 2018

The third day of our Chicago trip was more chill, which was just what we needed. We didn't realize how tired we would be walking around the city so much! We slept in and walked across the street to Everybody’s Coffee for bagel sandwiches and our morning pick-me-up. Then we saw Solo: A Star Wars Story in theaters (I thought it was SO good!) and walked around Milwaukee Ave, which is filled with cute vintage shops, while snacking on Stan’s Donuts. We had to..


DAY 2 OF OUR CHICAGO ADVENTURE

14 June 2018

By the second day of our trip we were mostly adjusted to the time change of being 2 hours ahead. And I finally felt like I had gotten a good night's sleep! Which definitely helped because this was our busiest day filled with lots of activities. We started the morning with a donut run to Firecakes after missing our breakfast reservation elsewhere! Thankfully we were able to make a reservation for a different morning, so I'll be sharing more about that soon. Firecakes donuts


DAY 1 OF OUR CHICAGO ADVENTURE

11 June 2018

Traveling is something that Freddy and I really enjoy doing together. There’s something so thrilling about exploring a new place you’ve never been and creating new memories. Unfortunately it’s not something we get to do a whole lot with our demanding work schedules, but when we are able to get away for a few days we jump at the opportunity...


A RETRO-INSPIRED LOOK

01 June 2018

One of my themes for this year has been trying to shop my own wardrobe and re-style outfits using pieces I already own. To say it's been a challenge is an understatement. Since I work in retail, I'm constantly surrounded by beautiful new merchandise, not to mention I'm window shopping online whenever I have a free second! I feel like I'm always...


SUMMER IN AN OUTFIT

28 May 2018

I've always felt that Memorial Day is the official kick-off of summer. Most schools are out by this point, and everyone is usually enjoying the great outdoors with a barbecue or a swim at the pool/beach. So, since it's already summer in my book (despite what the calendar says) I decided to put together a fun look to celebrate the occasion! Because if lemons and a good, gingham print don't say summer, then what does!?


NEW CURLING IRON

25 May 2018

This post has been a long time coming, well, I mean getting a new curling iron has been a long time coming! Until now, I've used the same Conair curling iron since middle school, so for about 13 years!! Needless to say, I was really overdue to get a new one. For the past couple years, it seemed like every time I got a hair cut, my ends were split and fried....


NEW SUMMER BEAUTY PRODUCTS

We are in full-on summer mode here in Arizona, with triple-digit temperatures just around the corner. That also means the air feels that much more dry when it's 100 degrees outside, so locking in moisture any way that I can is key! I've been itching to try some new beauty products over the past couple months, and I finally pulled the trigger. I can't wait to share my latest purchases with you, so let's jump right in!
