Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

  It’s #nsale time!! The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is one of the best sales of the year. Instead of discounting items at the end of a season, Nordstrom discounts items before the upcoming season. So all of the upcoming fall items on major sale. It’s a great time to stock up on long sleeve tees,…

Fresh Picks vol. 1

Fresh Picks vol. 1

Introducing my new series: Fresh Picks! The series will focus on recent things I’ve come across that I like; things I think y’all would like too. It could be a new beauty product. Or a song that’s been on repeat. Or maybe a book I can’t put down. Right now I’m only going to post this…

Spring/Summer Shoes You Need in Your Closet

spring summer shoes

  Confession: I’m not a shoe person. At least, I didn’t think I was. But something about this season’s shoes has got me like…SHOES. LET’S GET SOME SHOES (side note: It’s almost midnight and I’m cackling as I watch this). After frequently wearing a couple pairs of shoes into the ground, I’m trying to vary my…

Everyone Deserves to Feel Confident

I’ve noticed a trend: fall/winter fashion seems to be the same year after year. It consists of sweaters, jeans, boots, etc. The sweater styles may be different. But the basic pieces are always the same. Yet when spring and summer roll around, the fashion industry favors unexpected fabrics, cuts, and styles. People show more skin. Hem…

The Best Mascara Ever

Stop everything you’re doing and sit down. I have HUGE news. Maybe not alien-life news, but still. I found the best mascara ever. It’s a bold statement, I know. But it’s true. Finding a good mascara is tough. It needs to make my lashes look fake, it needs to last all day, and it needs…

How to Whiten Teeth at Home with Smile Brilliant

Smile Brilliant

Coffee is my lifeline. I drink at least 2 cups a day. Sometimes more. I also drink black tea and diet coke – basically any dark liquid (wine is also on the list, obvi). All of these drinks are great for caffeine levels, but horrendous for my teeth. I’ve noticed that they’ve gotten more yellow…

Spring Style: Pastels, Florals, and my JORD Watch

Let’s talk about the weather. Not in the normal “can’t-come-up-with-conversation” way, but the “what-the-hell-do-I-wear” way. Earlier this week, it was 60 degrees and I didn’t even wear a coat! The next day, we got 5 inches of snow. Global warming is real, y’all. To combat this insane weather, I’ve developed a “uniform” – skinny jeans,…

Exploring Greece [on a Mediterranean Cruise]

the Parthenon

Remember that cruise I went on in October that I said I would blog about…then only posted once? Oops. Anyways, I wanted to share some pictures from our time in Greece. I’ve dreamed of visiting Greece for as long as I can remember. There’s something about whitewashed buildings with blue domed tops. It’s so romantic. Not in…

How to Wax Your Eyebrows at Home

I got my first eyebrow wax the week before college. It costed around $15. Between waxes, I would tweeze my eyebrows; usually I’d over-tweeze them. And they were never even. I remember stepping away from the mirror after one particular tweezing session and realizing that I had a permanent surprised look on my face. Cute. In…
