The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has landed! Every year I tell myself I’m not going to buy anything and every year that plan fails. This probably does not come as a surprise to those who know me. With that being said, I was invited to my local Nordstrom to preview the…

The four years that I spent at Penn State were TRULY the glory days. My overall college experience and the relationships that I formed were nothing short of amazing. However, they don’t really warn you about financial responsibility. Needless to say, it all worked out! But if I could have given my 19 year old wild self 6 financial tips to actually listen to, these would be it:
It looks as though the off the shoulder trend is sticking around to see another season. While I have sort of shied away from straight-across off the shoulder styles, I do love so many things about this particular bardot crop top. The plunging v-neck, puffed sleeves, and wrap closure all make for the perfect date night, happy hour, or hot summer night look.
Skin is tricky. As Colleen Rothschild puts it, your skin type is largely genetic but the condition of it can change frequently due to an array of factors (i.e. environmental, hormonal, etc). The Colleen Rothschild line makes it easy for us to tweak our regimen by carrying products that serve our skin’s needs at different times in our lives. Anything that is easy, we humans love!
Popping on here today to: A. tell you how much I’m loving stripes this season and B. list 15 fun facts about me, myself, and I. I did this on Instagram a few months ago as a way to introduce myself to any of the new readers that may have circulated in over the course of the past months. Think of it as a fun little icebreaker!
‘Tis the season for a little rosé. Rosé wine is definitely my DOC (drink of choice) during the heatwaves of spring and summer months. In my opinion, there’s nothing more appealing than enjoying a crisp tall stemmed glass while the sun is shining.
I’ll take one of everything from the Nordstrom Half Yearly sale, please. Now through June 3rd, you can save up to 40% off on select items at Nordstrom. To make it easy for you, I went through all of the pages, gathered all of the good stuff, and sorted it into categories for you guys to easily shop.
A cute pair of sunglasses is the cherry on top to a cute OOTD. As you may have noticed in my grams, I’m very rarely spotted without them. There are so many fun and funky styles out right now that I just can’t resist. I rounded up 18 affordable sunglasses that you need in your accessory collection for this spring and summer.
WIDE LEG GINGHAM PANTS | WHITE SNEAKERS | HEARTLOOM DENIM JACKET | SUNGLASSES Can you believe that it’s been FOUR years since I started my little corner on the internet? 280 blog posts later, I never would have imaged that I would be full-time blogging. But then again, that was…
I live for a good margarita with salt on the rim. Are you a frozen or an on-the-rocks kind of girl? I’m definitely an on-the-rocks gal. Brain freeze, no thank you. This FRESHLY squeezed orange marg is super refreshing and perfect for warm weather and good vibes.
If you’re reading this, you probably found yourself here for one of the following two reasons: 1. You’re wondering why someone (a.k.a. me) would ever willingly INGEST charcoal. 2. You’re crazy like me and are open to trying anything beauty and wellness-related. First off, it’s really not as insane as you’re probably thinking. Drinking activated charcoal is safe (for most people) and has been a “thing” for a while now.
If you’re into skincare like I’m into skincare, you NEED to know about rosehip oil. I’m not talking about that flowery scented rose water mist, I’m talking about the real deal, organic rosehip oil. Did you know that Miranda Kerr swears by it? Yes, please. What is it? Why is it so good? Where can you get your hands on a bottle?
Call me cheesy but I love Spring because it is somewhat of an all-around reset. You know that moment when winter breaks and you catch a 60+ degree sunny day? I don’t know about you guys but my mood, energy levels, happiness, and motivation are all positively impacted. Basically every department in my life gets a little boost. I’ve been feeling very inspired lately and I’d love to share some helpful tips and resources for getting your mojo back if winter sucked the life out of you!
The classic jean jacket is a forever staple in my closet. It’s the perfect throw-on, layering, go-to piece for transitioning my wardrobe from winter to spring. Pittsburgh’s weather has been wildly unpredictable lately but I refuse wear my black puffer jacket any further into April. That’s where my new Heartloom jacket comes into play.
As many of you probably already know, I’m a big fan of Vital Proteins products. Remember my post: Why I’m Drinking Collagen? Two years later, collagen is STILL where it’s at. If you missed my posts or YouTube video on collagen, I’ll fill you in now… Collagen is great for hair, skin, nails, joints, ligaments, and tendons. I personally like to put my collagen peptides into hot coffee or oatmeal, but the options are pretty much endless since they’re flavorless.
I tend to stay within the box when it comes to styling my hair. There are usually two decisions for me to make when I get ready: curled and all down or in some sort of bun. The buns are usually for 4-day unwashed hair. Gotta push the limits, you…
If you haven’t visited Charleston, South Carolina, it needs to be added to your bucket list right now. I was already planning my second trip before I left my first trip. The food was on point, the people were friendly, the shopping was great, and the town itself was easy…
I came across an interesting article on HuffPost the other day, ‘6 Things People Who Side Hustle Do Differently Than You’. In an old blog post, I talked about how so many of us have side hustles these days. A so-called side hustle can really be so many things. It can be freelance work, tutoring, a bartending gig, running a blog or an Etsy shop, selling on Ebay, carrying a part time job, volunteer work… the list goes on. Aside from what some people may say, millennials are totally killing it these days. Whether we do it to fulfill a creative passion or to some make extra money, supposedly 1 in 2 millennials have a side hustle.
Planning is the key to success in my opinion and that statement definitely proves to be true when it comes to healthy eating. If I know I’m going to have a busy week, I try my best to put things in the fridge that I’ll actually enjoy eating Monday through Friday. For lunch, I’ve been having this raw chopped veggie salad. SO GOOD you guys. It’s really easy to make and helps me to get my vegetables in for the day.
I’m jumping on here tonight to tell you guys how I list and sell new AND used items from my closet on Poshmark. To put it in perspective, I’ve been actively selling on the platform for probably 2 years now and have made few thousands in sales. And that is with very minimal effort! For someone who has an ever-changing wardrobe such as mine, Poshmark is a no-brainer to fund your next purchase guilt-free.
