This past weekend I hit my first big milestone on my blog- 1,000 followers on Instagram! If you aren't following me yet, you can find me here. This is where you can find out first about my new blog posts and where I post daily outfit pics! Considering I have so many new people around here I thought it would be fun to tell you a little bit about me, so I'm going to share 10 facts at the end of this post.
Valentine's Day is almost here! Do you have a sweetie to celebrate with? If not, you still have your gal pal's and they deserve some love too! I know a lot of people stress out about Valentine's Day if they're single, but you can always have a "galentine's" celebration! If I didn't have Eric I would definitely take advantage of this day to show my friends just how much I love them! So I created a gift guide with the cutest ideas for your friends (or yourself). Guys- take note, because these would also be great gift ideas for your girlfriend/wife too!
It's officially February, which means it's almost Valentines Day! I don't have any plans quite yet. My boyfriend is in the restaurant business and honestly we have never had an official Valentine's Day date. Considering Valentine's is such a popular time for couples to go out to dinner, it calls for all the restaurant staff possible. Either way, he always makes me feel special.
Hello, today I'm sharing an outfit in detail with you! This outfit is perfect for a day off, running errands or a lunch date- like I did! A couple of weeks ago, I cleaned out my closet (to see my before & after pictures, click here) and while doing so I realized I only had TWO cardigans. This surprised me, so I automatically went on a hunt for a cozy cardigan that I could wear with anything.
A trend that's super popular right now? Coats! They're no longer just for warmth, but now an addition to your everyday style. I started having a thing for coats about five years ago. I remember I bought a bright magenta peacoat and everywhere I went I got so compliments! After that my collection slowly grew, I had to get rid of my magenta peacoat eventually but I still have so many fun ones! So I'm very happy with this new trend (but man, have I resisted from getting even more- there are so many cute ones)!
I've always wanted a Clarisonic cleansing brush, but never wanted the big price tag it came with. During the Sephora VIB sale last month, I purchased a gift set that included the Clarisonic Mia 1 and the cleansing gel. for $129 (normally $148). I asked if you guys wanted a review of my experience on Instagram and you guys voted YES! So I made sure to document my experience. First up- my before pictures (big old stress zits, and all).
Truth is I'm a little bit of a beauty junkie. I'm always in search for the best makeup and skincare products, but these 6 items are products that I buy over and over! With the Sephora VIB sale coming up the 10th-15th, I thought I would share my favorite products at Sephora. Also, for the first time ever Beauty Insiders can also shop the sale!
This is my last recipe in my Valentine's series and the easiest! Valentine's Day is tomorrow- do you have plans yet!? After six years, Eric and I are finally having an official Valentine's Day date. Yay for days off! We are going to dinner at a southwestern restaurant that serves indian tacos and fry bread, it should be fun!
This is my second recipe in my Valentine's series. If you're interested in making some yummy heart-shaped soft pretzels, check out my first recipe here. I thought a cocktail would be fun for my second recipe and I immediately thought about Frosè. If you haven't heard, frosè is a delicious drink that's basically a rosè wine slushy. The trick to making a good frosè is choosing a rosè that's full-bodied, like a Merlot or Pinot Noir rosè, that way when you freeze it there's still a lot of flavor! This recipe is super easy and would be a great pink drink for Valentine's day and can even be taken into summer during hot days! Check out the recipe below!
It's almost Valentine's Day and I thought it would be a cute idea to share three Valentine's related recipes for the day of love. Me and my boyfriend started dating a couple weeks after Valentine's Day, leaving us in that awkward stage on v-day where we weren't sure if we should get each other presents- since we weren't officially dating. I played it safe and decided to bake him some heart-shaped cookies in his favorite flavor!
Since it's the middle of winter, soup is always on my mind. One of my favorites? Butternut squash soup! Last month I spent a lot of time with my mom, and we are both obsessed with butternut squash soup. I'm not going to lie, we ate it every time the opportunity presented itself. Now that my mom is back home, I've been sans butternut squash soup and it has been horrible. So I created an easy and delicious recipe that has a little bit of a kick and is perfect for a cold, winter day! This recipe can be made vegetarian or vegan and is even healthy!
Because it's almost the New Year, I have healthy recipes on my mind. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, but unfortunately I never make much time for it. I used to always wake up in enough time to sit down and eat breakfast, but somewhere along the way it turned into eating a granola bar on the way to work or making a stop at Starbucks, pastries and all.
I know I can't be the only one who likes to purge their closet in the new year. This year I'm not only due for a purge, but also a remodel. The way I'm organizing things just isn't making sense anymore, so I've done all the research and brainstormed all the ideas to make your life a little easier.
