Winter Accessories You Need This January

I love the song Baby It’s Cold Outside. Quite truthfully, it’s probably my favorite Christmas song. But this cold is slowly killing me. Since we moved a year ago, we still have a lot of boxes in our garages, so while there should be room for my parents cars and mine, my poor Lucy (yes, we named my car) has been freezing in our driveway each night. Let me tell you, scraping off your car at 6:30 am for work is quite the wake up call. We’ve gotten more snow everyday since the 23rd. Let’s calm down now lake effect. […]

L.L. BEAN BOOTS – Review + OOTD

I finally bought a pair of L.L. Bean’s “Bean Boots.” I’ve seen them duped by other companies, but I bought the real deal during Cyber Monday and I am SO happy that I did. They are perfect for the Michigan winters, and for walking around a snowy campus. They are easily the most waterproof boots I’ve ever had, not to mention for winter boots they are insanely cute and easy to style.

Holiday Outfits – Dresses + Sweaters

I love dressing up for the holidays. My family always tries to do an extended family Christmas party with all of my mom’s side of the family and I feel like I always had a new holiday dress to debut at that party. I remember being in elementary school and feeling so important and almost regal as I would walk down my Aunt’s spiral staircase in my tights and velvet dress, being so careful not to slip. For some reason a white tights and green velvet and white lace dress is really sticking out in my memory right now. This […]

Christmas Pajamas

After looking at the results of the poll on Instagram, it was about 40-60, with holiday outfits leading. However, I got multiple replies to my story for doing both of them – and your wish is my command!! This week, I’ll be flip flopping between gift guides and holiday outfits. So let’s start with my first outfit post. CHRISTMAS PJS!!! Outfit Details: Love Your Melon Crew Sweatshirt | Lauren Ralph Lauren PJ Pants (similar) | Field and Stream Cozy Cabin Socks Receiving Christmas pajamas is one of my favorite traditions my family shares.

BEST 2017 Cyber Monday Deals + Freebies and Coupon Codes

I hope everyone’s Thanksgiving break has been full of well deserved rest, relaxation, and family time. That’s how mine has been, as I’ve been on the East side of the state visiting both sides of my family. (This is why I’ve been pretty MIA this past week. Sorry folks, family is a little more important than the blog.) However, I did spend one of my days shopping. (Black Friday, duh.) And I bought only one thing. One thing. At full price. Granted, it was only a Lush bath bomb, but still. I was hoping to get some serious deals. I […]

First Blog Giveaway – Alex and Ani Bracelet!!

3,000 hits may seem like a tiny number to any full time blogger, but to a college student who thought her posts were just going to be read by a couple friends and family members, it’s so cool to see the reach my little corner of the internet has had in under a year! I’ve been able to work with the sweetest people and some great brands, and I’ve been able to hear your personal struggles and stories. Now while I haven’t always been the most consistent at posting, I’m going to be trying to work really hard at keeping […]

OOTD – 11/17/2017

Happy Friday!! I’ve had a day full of classes (statistics, anatomy and physiology, and sociology) and trying to be an adult by setting up eye and dental appointments. I’ve got my planner spread out all over the island with my class, exam, and work schedules labelled in an attempt to get appointments that work with my schedule. Word to the wise: don’t procrastinate on scheduling these. It’ll bite ya in the butt. I got both scheduled (thank God), but it was more of an ordeal than I thought it would be. Ugh the problems of being a #organizationqueen but also […]

Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas

I’m basically in full blown Christmas mode at this point. I’m hauling out the holly and ready to put up the tree before my spirit falls again. (See what I did there??) But in all seriousness, I love the holiday season. I am shamelessly listening to the Christmas radio station on my commute to school each morning. And when I’m driving to work. And to hang out with friends. Okay, so basically all the time. For me, after Halloween everything is one big long party. We get to go out and celebrate Halloween, then two days later I have my […]

August Style: Summer Weekends

I’ve been trying to spend the past few weeks outside, soaking up as much of the August sun I can. Whether that’s been at the Coast Guard Festival, on the East side of the state with family, or just in my own backyard, I’ve been savoring each moment this summer. With just a couple weeks left leading up to my first semester of sophomore year, I’ve been one busy bee! (Which is one of the main reasons I haven’t been able to post as often – I’m working on it, I pinky promise!) Thank goodness I’ve ordered my agenda, because […]
