  1. Drop Shoulder Dip Hem Marled Knit Tee – Obsessed! This top is so adorable, I love this purple color for summer and fall. Comes in a yellow color as well. I purchased it in a size small and the fit is true to size. I love that the back is a little longer than the front so you get the cropped look. 50% off right now, only $8! Such a steal. 
  2. Drop Shoulder Frill Detail Dip Hem Tee – I love a good peplum top and this one does not disappoint!  The fit is a little baggier than most peplum tops. I am wearing a size small, I think that I could have went with an XS for a tighter look and it would have fit just fine. So I recommend getting your normal size, however if you can easily switch between sizes and would like a tighter fit then size down one. Originally $23, on sale right now or $9!! Also, comes in a beautiful burgundy color that would be perfect for fall. 

  3. Light Grey Letter Print SweatshirtAbsolute favorite purchase! This cute little Babe sweatshirt is so soft, cozy and perfect for those soon to be fall days! I love the tighter fit, wearing size small. Fits true to size, however if looking for a baggier look size up one. Only $10 and totally worth every penny! 

  4. Crisscross Front Textured Knit Top– This shirt just screams fall and I am loving it! From the adorable little criss cross at the top to the bell sleeves I just cant get enough! Wearing size small, fits TTS. On sale for $15!

  5. Short Sleeve Striped T-Shirt – The best basic tee I have ever purchased. I love the fit of this tee so much!! I am wearing size XS, fits TTS. If you are looking for a baggier look again you can size up. This tee is only $10 and is so perfect for any season. Looks great on its own or under a cardigan.

Outfit #1

  1. Drop Shoulder Ribbed Sweater in Black, also comes in a fun bleu color. Love the fit of this adorable black sweater. Easily dressed up for date night or down for hanging out at home. Only $39.00! Wearing size XS, fits TTS.
  2. Trace Studded Mule in Black  I love mules for fall, they are so cute and versatile. The cute little gold studs on these give me all the heart eyes! These mules comes in 5 colors, some of the colors are sold out in a few sizes right now so be sure to grab your size in the color you want before its gone. I am wearing my original size 6, fits TTS. The brand is Steve Madden, my absolute favorite shoe brand ever, price is $79.95.

Outfit #2

  1.  Long Sleeve Tee in the color Grape Leaf, also comes in black. You guys have seen me where this already a handful of times on the blog. I am OBSESSED with this simple long sleeve tee. The fit is perfect,  it is slightly cropped which I love. This color just gets me so excited for fall, I want everything to be this color! Price is $29.00 and worth every penny. Wearing size small, I can easily switch between a XS and S in more items so with this tee I went with the small so it wasn’t too snug and I love the way it fits.
  2. Sultan Chelsea Wedge Sneaker in color Taupe Suede. I have never loved a sneaker more than I love these Steve Madden wedged sneakers. They are my absolute favorite and will be wearing them nonstop this year! They come in black and camo too. This shoe is so comfortable, wore them to a concert where I stood all night and my feet never once hurt. I purchased in a size 5.5, because my original size 6 was sold out. They fit but I will not be able to wear socks  with them. I would definitely recommend buying your normal size. Priced at $89.95 and again these babies are worth every single penny!!!!

Outfit #3

  1. Stitch Curve Hem Cardigan in color Green Botanical, comes in 6 adorable colors. Literally want to buy this cardigan in every color. I love it! It is longer, comes down to about my knees and is just the most comfortable cardigan ever. Wearing size XS but wishing I would have sized down to an XXS because this runs large. I would recommend sizing down. Price is $49.00.
  2. Violet Genuine Calf Hair Mule Okay, if you ladies buy one thing for fall it should be these shoes! I mean seriously, I love love love these! The leopard print is so cute and surprisingly pairs easily with so many of my favorite fall pieces. These are a must get in my book! Price is $99.95. These were one of the first things to sell out during the anniversary sale and I am so happy that they have been fully restocked! Wearing size 5.5 because my original size 6 sold out QUICK, the 5.5 fits but would have preferred the 6. I would recommend getting your normal size.

Jeans shown in all three outfits

  1.  Emma Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans The best jeans I have ever purchased shown in all three pictures above. I love a good pair of jeans, I just love jeans in general if I could live in jeans I would. The light wash on these is perfection and the fit is even better. Wearing them in a size 26, my normal size and they fit great. These are the first pair of ankle skinny jeans that I have ever purchased where I didn’t have to roll the bottoms up because I am only 5’2. That was the best surprise ever!! If you are petite I highly recommend these jeans, they are fantastic! Price is $65.00, such a great deal for jeans!

Favorite Vacation Destinations

Sharing some of my favorite vacation destinations!

Traveling, one of my absolute favorite things to do. I would travel the world if I had the funds to do so. I love nothing more than exploring a new place, seeing all the beauty that this world has to offer. Usually when traveling, my family and I, like to head somewhere warm preferably some where with a big, beautiful beach. I’m a sucker for some crystal clear water and 90 degree weather. Today I wanted to share some pictures of four absolutely stunning placesI have visited in the past few years. Enjoy!

St. Croix, U.S.V.I.

When I retire, this is where you can find me. From the moment I stepped off of our honey moon cruise I fell madly in love with St. Croix. The island looks like a picture, stunning scenery every where you turn. Crystal clear water, gorgeous white sand beaches and a boardwalk that draws you right in and makes you never want to leave. My husband and I spent just one day on this island when we stopped here on a cruise but let me tell you one day was not enough. We spent the morning walking around the island, did a little shopping and then spent the afternoon on the beach. Every person that we had the opportunity to talk to was so friendly and sweet. I have been to some islands where you honestly just want to turn around and get right back on the boat because the islanders scare the crap out of you. This is not one of those places, we felt so welcome when we were here. The islanders weren’t the only reason I wanted to stay forever… the beach is what really got me. I have never seen such stunning beach in my whole life! The sand was a perfect shade of white, the water was so clear you could see fish swimming 20 feet below the surface and there was not a wave in sight. I could have built a shack on that beach and lived out the rest of my life as happy as could be. If you ever get the chance to go to St. Croix, whether it be by boat or plane, go! Do not hesitate to visit this stunning island. I personally can not wait to go back and visit again.

 

Sitka, Alaska

Oh, Sitka, you will always hold such a special place in my heart. Four years ago today I was visiting Sitka, Alaska with my mom and grandparents. Sitka, is a very small town located in Alaska, so small that there were only about 3 restaurants and bars and few stores to shop at. However, we did not go there for the food and shopping, we went to explore. When I heard that I had the opportunity to travel to Alaska with my family I could not pass it up, and let me tell you, this small town did not disappoint. We had such an amazing time, for a small town there were so many activities to do. On our very first day, we  decided to take a small little boat out hoping to spot some whales. Within just a few minutes of being out there we saw three gigantic hump back whales splashing around, it was the most incredible experience of my life. To be next to such a large powerful animal was surreal. If you ever get the opportunity to go whale watching please do, I can not tell you how absolutely incredible it is. During the other days on the island we did a lot of hiking, the trails are incredible in Alaska (I was a little nervous about running into some bears, but thankfully we never did!!!!). We did however get to visit the Fortress of the Bear wildlife park, we were the only ones visiting that day so they gave us a special tour and even let us feed baby black bears, it was awesome! Sitka, may be small but this gorgeous little Alaskan town had so much to offer. I will never again be able to experience the things I did while visiting Sitka with my mom and grandparents. We had such a fun time and I hope that one day I can take my husband and son back there to experience the beauty that it holds.

 

Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands

Grand Cayman is also another stop that I have visited while on a cruise in the Caribbean. I am lucky enough to have been on two cruises that stopped here, so I have spent two days exploring this island. Grand Cayman is absolutely gorgeous and there are so many fun things to do here. The first time I visited we took a boat tour out to Sting Ray City, probably one of the top 5 coolest things I have ever done in my life. Don’t get me wrong I was terrified and didn’t want to get off the boat, but once my mom forced me off (haha) I really had such an incredible time. I wish so badly I had pictures of this to show you all but i’d have to go digging through old boxes in my mom’s basement to find them and that seems like too much work since its already 10 o’clock at night. Honestly, though Sting Ray City is crazy cool, a bunch of boats drive out to a huge sandbar located right in the middle of the ocean and once they get there the wild sting rays know that the boats have food so they just flood the area. It is insane to see so many wild sting ray swimming around. Once the sting rays comes everyone hops off the boats into the water to feed and pet the sting rays, not going to lie it was so scary but so incredibly amazing at the same time. My family still talks about how awesome that vacation was. My second time on the island I was with my husband and in-laws and we decided to spend the day at the Cayman Turtle Farm. There were so many adorable sea turtles there and we even got to hold a few of the babies. The turtle farm also had a great swimming pool to enjoy as well as a lazy river type area where you could snorkel around. I can not wait to go back to Grand Cayman again so that I can experience more of this stunning island.

 

Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos Island

I have never in my life seen as clear of water as I did when I stepped off the boat onto Grand Turk. You guys, I am not joking this place is surrounded by the calmest, clearest, bluest water I have ever seen. My mouth literally dropped when I saw how stunning this place was. Again, I did not get to visit the island long, we stopped here on a cruise and were only allowed a few hours to explore. However, if I ever get the chance to go back I will take it in a heart beat. My husband and I were with our siblings and a few friends when our cruise stopped here for the day and we all decided it would be fun to spend the day snorkeling. We signed up for a snorkeling tour, you know since the water was so clear we couldn’t resist finding the best place to jump in! Our snorkeling tour was incredible, we all had such a fun time. The tour took us out into the middle of the ocean and the tour guides jumped right out and swam down to the bottom of the ocean to pick up huge conch shells to show everyone (I even got to keep one, it is sooo beautiful!). After  getting to pass around the conch shells the tour guides took us to a tiny island right off the shores of Grand Turk and let us go out and snorkel the crystal clear waters for awhile. Then we headed back into the island where we got to hold and feed wild stingrays right on the beach. It was a very awesome experience, we all loved this tour and this island. I wish so badly that I lived in a place as gorgeous as Grand Turk.

Have you ever been to one of these places or anywhere that you loved so much you just wish you could stay there forever? Leave me a comment below and let me know of your favorite places. Thanks for reading, xoxo.

 

 

 

Favorite Products 2017

Sharing 7 of my favorite products from 2017, everything from head to toe.

Hello, friends! Hope everyone had a fun weekend. We spent a lot of time around the house cleaning and getting laundry done. Not very exciting but needed to get done. This weekend really flew by, can’t believe I have to head back into the office already tomorrow. For today’s post I wanted to share some of my favorite products from 2017.  These are 7 of my go-to products that I could not live without! You can click on the name of the product and it will take you directly to the link to purchase it.

Too Faced

Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil Bronzer

This bronzer is heaven and it smells like chocolate milk which makes it even better! I started using this bronzer a few months ago after I ran out of my current bronzer from Smashbox and wanted to try something new. I am in love with it! I’m decently pale so I opted for the lighted shade but there are two shades darker than this one if you need a darker tint. It looks fantastic, smells fantastic and only costs $30. What more could a girl ask for? The link above takes to the Too Faced website, however this product is also available at Sephora and Ulta.

Mascara

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara 

I have tried a million different mascaras to see if there is one better than this one and let me tell you, there is not!! This mascara is my all time favorite makeup product. My whole family is obsessed with it. If you want long, full looking lashes than this is the mascara you have been looking for. Before getting my eyelash extensions I wore this mascara every single day, it made me feel so much better about my short lashes. When I am going out with my hubby or friends for the night I will put this mascara on my extensions to make them look even longer and more full. Too Faced sells it on the their website for $23, I have also found it in store at Sephora and Ulta. I promise you will love this product!

Arbonne

Arbonne Liquid Sunshine Tinted Self-Tanner

Every girl can use a good self-tanner lotion and this one is always my go to. I stopped using tanning beds a few years ago because I really wanted to keep my skin looking young. Spray tans are great for special occasions but they fade fairly quickly and you would have to keep going back almost weekly to keep up with your tan. Again, I am pretty pale, I look almost ghostly during these Ohio winters, so I wanted to find the best self-tanner. I had tried a few that I found at Ulta but nothing that I loved, that’s when a friend recommended Arbonne. As soon as I tried the lotion I was hooked. The tan lasts anywhere from 4-7 days and the color is great. Once you put it on it takes about 2 hours for the color to start showing on your skin. The tanner costs $45 on the Arbonne website linked above.

BB

Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cover-Up

I seriously love this cover up! It is not very thick but it covers up minor flaws and last all day long. I wear this makeup daily. The only time I wear a different cover up is when I am going out for the night and want more coverage. If you need a product that is perfect for the every day look, than I would try this. I am honestly obsessed with it and the best part is I found it at Target for less than $10! The product comes in 5 different tints and helps reduce blemishes, its an all around win!

Brush

Wet Brush

The wet brush is the best hairbrush ever!!! I used to struggle all the time with brushing my hair, especially after getting out of the shower. Long hair is no joke, the amount of tangles I would fight to brush through was ridiculous. Once I started using the wet brush I never had to worry about tangles again. This brush is so smooth and makes brushing out messy hair so much simpler. This is the only hair brush I use. I will use it on wet and dry hair. I can not explain how great this hair brush is, I even use it on Beckham when I get him out of the bath. This product is a must try! I found mine at Target for less than $10, I’m sure most drug stores sell this brush also.

wans

Bed Head Curlipops 1” Tourmaline Ceramic Styling Iron

You guys, this curling wand only costs $29.99 and works like a charm! This is the only product I use to curl my hair, I absolutely love the way it makes my hair look! The wand heats up very quickly and it stays hot the whole time you are using it, unlike other wands and curling irons I have used. Honestly, you won’t need much time when curling because the product is so hot it can curl a piece of hair in just a few seconds. I was really worried about trying a product that was so low cost compared to some of the other wands similar to it but I am so happy I decided to try this one out. I saved my self a ton of money and I get the same if not better results every time I use it. I purchased mine from Ulta, however I think I saw them on sale at Target too.

pedi

Amope Pedi Perfect

So, this product was a birthday gift from my grandma last year and I love it! I feel like my feet are never as pretty as I want them to be. I love getting pedicures but I can’t always make it to the salon when my feet are starting to look a little rough. This product is perfect for keeping your feet looking pretty between pedicures. I never have to worry about wearing sandals again. It works great and is super easy to handle. My feet always feel so smooth after using the pedi perfect.

I love all these products and was so excited share how they have helped my every day beauty routine become easier. If you have some really great products that you love please let me know about them in the comments below! I am always looking to try new beauty products. Hope everyone has a great week, xoxo.
