Scalloped Dress + Finding Purpose

Scalloped Dress

Dress (also in this post) | Shoes (similar) | Sunglasses I hope your holiday Monday is off to a great start! Per my schedule, today I want to share a few thing about myself so you all can get to know me better! I am going to do that quick and then shift the focus off of me because in a world that has quickly become a constant episode of The Real Housewives, I think we all need a break from looking to ourselves. In the spirit of #lmrsp turning two, I wanted to do a post so new readers can have the oppurtunity to get to know me  beyond my “About” page. Behind the photos, products and post content, I am just a mid-20 year old trying to figure out what my purpose in this world truly is. Currently, I am a wife, boutique manager by day, blogger by night, and dog mom! Here are some other fun facts: My eyeliner is literally never even- I see those memes of people trying to apply their eyeliner which eventually just becomes a very thick cat eye- that is me! Although I’ve learned over the years that it will never be symmetrical so I just leave […]

Neutral Ombré Vest

Neutral Ombre Vest

Ombré Vest (sold out, similar) | Body Suit (sold out, similar) | Jeans | OTK Boots | Purse (similar) | Sunglasses (similar) Okay, this Florida girl was COLD on my vacation to Denver over the holidays. Taking these photos was even a challenge as freezing temperatures and winds whipped throughout the process. I certainly have shed my cold-weather skin and will claim Florida as home now thank you very much haha. To combat the unusually cold weather (for me, not the state), I resorted to this neutral ombré vest to keep my somewhat warm in the midst of multiple layers! I know I can’t complain as negative temperatures and blankets of snow currently cover our country. Earlier this week the temperatures were as low as the 20’s here in Florida. Thankfully, we’re back up the 70’s right before the weekend and I am so happy about that. But for those of you still fighting frigid weather, I want to suggest some fun weekend activities for cold weather climates. Here are some fun options: Enjoy a long brunch with friends– Immediately following our January blog shoot, me and Katie of KB Digital Designs (she was our wedding photographer, see our gallery here!) had to catch up on […]

Let’s Get Local: Blink Artistry

Let's Get Local: Blink Artistry

The New Year is here and no matter what your resolutions may be, I think we can all agree that some R&R can never hurt. Personally, I love to be pampered. Most recently, a simple manicure/pedicure can make me feel like new! I am looking for new ways to relax in the New Year and I teamed up with Alli Begley of Blink Artistry to have my makeup done. I’ve only had my makeup professionally done for my wedding and as a bridesmaid. It was really fun to get done up just because. Even better, Alli is so sweet and extremely educated on the products she uses. The whole time, I asked her about every product she used and she’d take the time to explain why they are great and what they target. She specializes in airbrush makeup, and even does hairstyling and spray tans (which based on the photo above, your girl needs a spray tan haha)! I am thankful I got to work with Alli last month and enjoyed chatting with and learning from her. Here are the details of her Emerald Coast based beauty business: C: What inspired you to start Blink Artistry? A: I’ve always, for as long as I can […]

Currently Coveting: January

Currently Coveting: January 2017

Goals Sweatshirt | Tank | S’well Bottle | Mesh Leggings | Quilted Backpack | Tennis Shoes Last week, I had to get the oil changed in my car. Truth be told, if I am at home all day or just running errands more often than not I wear my workout clothes. As I sat waiting to have the work on my car completed, another customer in the waiting room asked if I was on my way to the gym. Embarrassed… I replied, “no, just running my errands.” They replied with, “you look like you’re really running errands.” I mean, is it just me or am I the first person to wear workout clothes as regular clothes? I didn’t want to be rude and explain the definition of athlesisure so I just laughed it off. I mentioned in this post that I am working on making exercise a way of life! One week into 2017 and I am doing well haha. I love riding my bike to the gym (because it’s more fun and I count it as my warm up), I complete 30 minutes on the elliptical and then finish with some ab exercises. I have to admit however that after […]

#lmrsp Turns Two + 2017 Aspirations

#lmrsp Turns Two

Shoes (similar) | Tassel Banner It was officially two years ago this week that I decided to start my blog! It has been so much fun and I will never get over how much I love creating in this space. Curating posts on a weekly basis for the mini-community we’ve created here has been such a rewarding experience. I truly understand why people say, “you don’t work a day in your life if you love what you do.” I will gladly hop out of my bed on a Sunday at 5am to go take blog photos… I can’t think of anything else that would get me out of the bed that early and eager to accomplish something! I am thankful for that, for those of you that have continued to read my posts for the past two years and for those of you recently joining me here. I am so grateful for each and every person that has ever supported my blog. Rather than reminisce too much about 2016, I just want to quickly highlight the overall best feeling associated with the year for me. If I had to sum up 2016 in one word it would be, home. Mack and I move […]

7 Ways to Get Organized in 2017

7 Ways to Get Organized in 2017

Daily Devotional | Agenda | Drop Dish | Calculator | Macbook Cover I returned from vacation earlier this week and have been determined to get organized ever since. I’ve done about 10 pounds of laundry, put away our Christmas tree and cleaned the whole house. With all that being said and done, I can now focus on 2017 haha. I spent some time at my brother’s in Mississippi before returning to Florida which ended with me driving home for about five hours! I let the time pass while allowing my mind to wander into what I want to accomplish in 2017. The WHAT is always the easy part… it’s the HOW that’s more tricky. I am the type of person that thrives off of organization. If my desk is a mess, I can’t work until it’s tidy (and this pretty much trickles over into every room of the house). Therefore, I have to intentionally stay organized or else I find myself cleaning all day with nothing else accomplished. You may or may not be like this! But no matter what you aspire to do in 2017, here are 7 applicable changes you can make to stay organized and feeling good […]

The Bachelor Must-Haves

The Bachelor Must-Haves

Pajama Set | Phone Case | Wine Sippy Cup | Blanket (sold out, similar) | Brunette Sweatshirt | Slippers Happy New Year! It’s clear that I am starting 2017 off on a real serious note because we all know The Bachelor premieres tonight! Personally, I’ve never been a huge fan of Nick but of course I am going to watch. My Mom told me to give him a chance so I’ll do just that and see how the season progresses. If I had to equate how I feel about The Bachelor (and The Bachelorette), it would be equivalent to my husband’s love for LSU football. I can’t get enough of my Monday nights watching this show! Although sometimes I feel like it’s a real waste of time, a girl just needs some down time to drink wine and watch people compete for love on national tv, okay! Much like a traditional football tailgate, us ladies must prepare to gather and watch this series weekly. I’ve linked a few notable items that are a MUST for me while watching. Although I usually watch by myself with Rebel and Tiger (sometimes I can corral Mack to watch with me too), you will always […]

Sweater Dress for Christmas

sweater dress

Sweater Dress | Booties | Louis Vuitton | Watch As the seasonal Florida temperatures began to show their true colors leading up to my departure for the holidays, I found myself in need of the perfect sweater dress. But the fluctuating temperatures left this girl confused. One day it was in the 40’s and freezing and the next it was back up to the 70’s and as humid as a summer day. What do I have to do to get some #sweaterweather to stick around? Well be careful what you wish for, right? I am now at home in Colorado and was greeted by a temperature of -8 when I stepped off that plane. That’s right… NEGATIVE 8. Imagine how Rebel and Tiger felt when that air hit them in their little airplane carriers while running to my Dad’s car when he picked us up. If they could talk I am sure they’d say, “I don’t think we’re in Florida anymore.” As an avid Amazon Prime abuser… I mean user, I went there first to see if I could find a suitable sweater dress. I needed one to accommodate the irregular winter temperatures of Florida but also pack for my stay […]

NYE Dress

New Years Eve Dress

Dress | Shoes (similar) | Sunglasses (similar) | Clutch (similar) | Watch I understand that it’s only December 16th and NYE is still a few weeks away! BUT if you’re a planner like me than you need some outfit inspo right NOW. My intention is not to move this year along any faster than it already has gone and I am very much looking forward to Christmas and spending time with my family. Gosh, I really can’t wait for that! I think I’ve shared about my tight-knit family on the blog before and I truly wouldn’t trade them for the world! My brother, myself and my three cousins are all within the same age range and grew up 20 minutes away from one another. This was the best while growing up but it’s even better now! We are spread throughout the country from Florida to New York City and coming home means reuniting. It’s really rare that we are all back at the same time and sadly this year we are going to be a missing a few. Regardless, there is nothing like family, especially when they are your built-in-best-friends turned real best friends haha. When all of the family is in […]

Makeup Favorites + Last Minute Beauty Gifts

Makeup favs and gifts

Love: Makeup Forever HD Foundation | Makeup Forever Full Cover | Makeup Forever Pro Finish Powder | Nars Bronzer (I use Laguna) | Nars Blush (I use Orgasm)| Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara | Clinique Chubby Stick Try: IT Cosmetics CC Cream | IT Cosmetics CC + Airbrush Perfecting Powder | IT Cosmetics Color Awakening Lip Treatment | Sephora Pearl Mask Gifts: Bite Lipstick Kit | Beauty Blender | Sephora Brush Set I am a person of habit and routine when it comes to nearly everything life, especially when applying makeup. At the same time each morning, I get ready and do so in the identical order as yesterday with very little variation from the basics. Don’t get me wrong, I like to switch up my eyeshadow, use a different eyeliner and apply a new shade of lipstick depending on the occasion. But the bare basics of my makeup routine remain the same and the methods to apply remain unchanged. Here’s what I love, want to try and some last minute gifts for a beauty guru in your life. I love the Makeup Forever products and find that they simply work for me. I decided to try them because I love Jessie James Decker. She recommends […]
