I recently visited Portugal with 7 of my girlfriends and thought it would be fun to share my 10 day itinerary which includes what we did, what we ate, and what we saw in Chiado, Lisbon, The Algarve, Alfama, Sintra, and Cascais!
Fall hit yesterday and, needless to say, my edgiest, colorless pieces have emerged quick and I couldn’t be more excited about it. Exhibit A: this all black look with a studded biker jacket. I love me some layers, booties, leather, and anything moody for the fall season.
I’m here for the animal print trend if you haven’t noticed. I am totally loving all of it and, needless to say, want it all as well. If you missed my last post on leopard, scroll through my slider below for all the cutest animal print styles of the moment.
Let’s talk beauty. It’s been a little while since I’ve shared a few of of my favorite products that I’m loving. I’m constantly trying all kinds of new and amazing brands but I’ve been reaching for some more than others. Here are 4 beauty products that you should definitely know about…
Some of you are probably wondering what I’m doing sitting on my bed in scrubs. Not the usual #OOTD that you guys are used to see on my Instagram, right? But in reality, this pair of scrubs from Smitten Scrubs: Blush Collection actually is my *very fancy* head to toe look on certain days of the week. As most of you already probably know after reading my blogging story, I also have a degree in nursing.
Wrap tops and tie-front tops are my jam right now. I love the one I’m wearing in the pictures because A. it’s long sleeve B. it has a relaxed, comfy fit, C. these kinds of tops are flattering on my body type – and D. it can totally be dressed down or up for a night out. Shocking that I’m wearing pink, right?
Every job has it’s pros and cons, am I right? …things you like doing, things you can tolerate doing, and things you would rather do anything else but that thing. As fun and incredible as blogging really is, the same actually goes for it as well. There are definitely certain tasks that I enjoy and other parts about it that I dread.
I thought it would be fun and hopefully relatable to list off 28 things I’ve learned in 28 years. A while back, I asked you guys what you wanted to see more of from me and one topic that was repeatedly suggested was ADVICE. Which is funny. But here we go!
I go in and out of animal print phases and right now I am definitely experiencing a leopard print moment. In my opinion, animal print never really faded out, it just had its debut in different ways over the years. Right now, the styles are pretty bold and I’m honestly loving it. If you’re going to “do” animal print, you have to make sure you do it right though.
As you guys know, I’ve been into the whole intermittent fasting thing lately. If I have access to a blender at home, I’ve been breaking my fast with this packed green spirulina smoothie. I’m not the biggest fan of cleaning out the blender but I do love me a good shake so it’s worth it!
Can someone please tell me how we ended up at the end of July? …I mean summer always passes in the blink of an eye but this summer especially. I decided to create a summer bucket list in my iPhone notes list a few weeks ago. Some of the activities are Pittsburgh-based but others are definitely ideas for anyone.
