Gift Guide for the Beauty Lover

Gift Guide for the Beauty Lover

With December making its arrival this weekend, the season of gift giving is officially upon us. In fact, if you’re like me… you may already be behind on holiday shopping. BUT we’ll get there, just like we do every holiday season! 🙂 So, my personal favorite gift to receive (& give!) is beauty products of any kind! Give me a spa day, makeup staple or new serum to try and I am set. In fact, my mom knows this so she always gifts me with my go-to products! With that in mind, I wanted to round up my tried and true favorites for the beauty lover in your life – which really is all women! Basically, beauty gifts are return-proof in my mind – and who doesn’t love that? Gift Guide for the Beauty Lover It Cosmetics Confidence in a Cleanser Everyone, and I mean, everyone needs a good cleanser. The It Cosmetics Confidence in a Cleanser is one of my favorites, smells great and doesn’t dry out my skin. It’s a great option for someone who travels often or for everyday use. I am a big fan of the It Cosmetics line (in case you couldn’t tell here and […]

Must-Have Personalized Shampoo + Conditioner with Formulate

Must-Have Personalized Shampoo + Conditioner with Formulate

Personalized Shampoo + Conditioner If you’ve been around here for long you may have noticed just how low maintenance my hair really is. You won’t see tons of varying styles or hair tutorials over here because, well, my hair is what it is! The only place I’ve ever had good hair was in college, living in that Mississippi humidity. I swear, it was the first time my hair held curl! Now being in Florida, I’ve noticed that all humidity is not created equal, and instead there’s just something about that Mississippi air that serves my hair well. So, on a journey to find that Mississippi hair on the regular, I began my hunt to elevate my shampoo and conditioner experience. And who would’ve guessed that selecting random bottles on the shelves of Target just wouldn’t do it. That’s right, everyone knows that. We all do it and we do it often. We pick based on the bottle or the promises captioned on the back without truly knowing if it’ll work or not (or even what our hair needs to live up to its full potential). So long story short, give this girl and online quiz to tailor something specifically for me […]

Sip into the Simple Life this Holiday Season with Simple Life Winery

Sip into the Simple Life this Holiday Season

Simple Life Winery Pinot Noir | Simple Life Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Let me just start this post by saying that the photo of me, Rebel and Tiger, on the couch, with Simple Life Pinot Noir in hand… is as close as I get to feeling like Patricia Altschul from Southern Charm. And I love it! But all that to say, you may notice a little change of scenery around here in that Mack and I actually did it – we moved into our Airstream! Just in time for the holiday season we will be capping off 2018 by going tiny (as they say). And this holiday season it’s clearly not going to be about what we get, but rather what we already have, as we sip into the holiday season feeling very, very grateful! As we’ve downsized our life (and mostly my closet haha) we’ve learned more than one lesson about what we really need. As the happiest time of year approaches, I want to share those lessons as a sweet reminder that you probably already have all you need. In fact, it’s most likely right in front of you! Three Ways to Sip into the Simple Life this Holiday […]

How To Achieve Overall Wellness with True&Co.

How To Achieve Overall Wellness with True & Co.

True&Co. Everyday Collection In my opinion, being healthy is one thing whereas overall wellness is a totally different ballgame. So, how do we achieve wellness both inside and out? I think that when we feel our best, we can give our best. I’ve seen it play out in my own life… when being stretched too thin leaves me empty and overwhelmed. But as I made a few lifestyle changes, I feel more confident, am able to serve my family, and better equipped to even perform my jobs (yes, plural). With that, here’s how to achieve overall wellness – which keep in mind isn’t a destination per say, but an ever-growing feeling you acquire over time. Just like a fine wine… or at least, I think? How To Achieve Overall Wellness With True&Co. Work/Life Balance is a Real Thing A buzz statement I’ve heard lately is this, “work/life balance doesn’t exist.” With all do respect to those saying that, I actually disagree. I’ve spent my fair share of time working, grinding, “putting in my time” and even sacrificing family time to climb an invisible ladder to nowhere. I was exhausted and not loving life at that time. Rather than just stick […]

How to Craft Your Christmas Card with Basic Invite

How to Craft the Perfect Christmas Card with Basic Invite

Basic Invite Holiday Collection Is it just me or does the holiday season always creep up? Once Halloween hits, it’s one foul swoop and Thanksgiving dinner is on the table followed by decking the halls for Christmas. Before the year is too far gone, let’s take a step back and focus on what we can do NOW to ensure the holiday season doesn’t pass us by! One way to do this is by ordering your Christmas cards early. When I think about a Christmas card…. it’s like the original Instagram. Am I right? You curate this photo, make sure your family looks perfect and then share it with loved ones, friends, co-workers and beyond. I believe that our digital connection is no substitute for a good old fashioned Christmas card. Because we’re able to fill every magnet on our refrigerator each year, I know for a fact that I am not alone in this!

Clothes with Cause: Citizen&Darling

Clothes with Cause: Citizen&Darling

Citizen&Darling T-Shirt | Long Cardigan (sold out, similar) | Denim Shorts | Leopard Booties | Smartphone Crossbody (almost identical) | Sunglasses Where has this week gone? I swear it was Monday two seconds ago. That’s always how I feel after vacay (even if just for the weekend)! Buuuut, I am excited about today’s post so let’s get to it. If a company marries cause with clothes – that’s something I can get behind! I came across Citizen&Darling at a recent women’s event at a local church. Of course, their setup immediately caught my eye because this girl can’t pass up a t-shirt. But as I got closer, I noticed this t-shirt was more than just a closet staple. Rather with each t-shirt sold, they donate to partner organizations that raise awareness for, and fight, human trafficking. The facts surrounding this cause, and the need for it, are honestly scary. I am glad there are companies and partner organizations leading the charge for change in this realm. So with that, I give you a cute (& super soft) t-shirt along with a way to support something that offers the chance to give back! Do you support any companies with a cause? Leave […]

Elevate Your Clear Stadium Bag in 2 Minutes

Elevate Your Clear Stadium Bag in 2 Minutes

Top | Demin Shorts (almost identical) | Tennis Shoes | Sunglasses | Clear Stadium Purse As you all know, Mack and I have a very alive rivalry in our household! I mean, our doggies even hold our school spirit in their namesake! In case you don’t follow SEC football, Mack loves LSU and I graduated from Ole Miss so we have fun being rivals – once a year! With that being said, we are headed to Baton Rouge on Thursday so I will be signing off early this week. But before we go, I wanted to share with you how I elevated my clear stadium back in 2 minutes and for $0. Give me anything that’s actually free and I am HERE for it! But let’s back up. I haven’t used my clear stadium bag since last year’s LSU vs. Ole Miss game. But with gameday on my mind, I started to search the internet, you know just “window scroll” if you will. But, similar to window shopping, it’s hard to resist the urge to buy. So I came across the literally cutest clear bag ever… with a statement strap that had my clicking “add to bag” without a second […]

Shop Your Closet: Go To White Chunky Sweater

Go To White Chunky Sweater

Chunky Sweater (similar) | Skinny Jeans with Step Hem (almost identical) | Mules | Crossbody Actual thoughts that ran through my head while shooting this outfit in 90 degree weather… “stop trying to make fall happen, it’s not going to happen!” Any Mean Girls fans out there? Just me? Haha real life, I was roasting during this session. Roasting. But we are in week two of my Shop Your Closet series because, well, we ALL have a go-to white sweater in our closet. If you don’t, I linked a very similar option above. A good chunky sweater is great for fall, yes. It’s also great to pack in your tote while traveling, your ride-or-die choice when date night is at the movie theatre (why is it always freezing in there?) and the best for just lounging at home with your leggings on. As cooler months are *supposedly* coming, this outfit is easy to copy with items you most likely have tucked away. And if you’re thinking this outfit looks oddly similar to this outfit, you’d be correct. When it comes to jeans, I really only think you need three pairs max. One good pair of denim skinnies (preferably with a […]

Podcasts I am Currently Loving

Podcast I am Currently Loving

Second Life | Jen Gotch is OK… Sometimes | WorkParty I will admit it… I am late to the podcast game. Before I started to tune in, my thought process was, “how do people have time to listen to podcasts?” But little by little I’ve started to work them into my routine. If I am going on a long drive or have some mindless checklist items, I now opt for a podcast over music. I haven’t explored them much but there are three that I am currently listening to and want to recommend to you! See why below… Podcasts I am Currently Loving Second Life This podcast takes our girl crushes from Instagram and puts a microscope on their success. It’s a real-life chat about where the journey started, road blocks along the way and how it all came together for each featured guest. It’s real, never sugar-coated, and offers tangible take aways from those inspirational people that have already walked the road. So far, my favorite spotlights include, Alli Webb of Drybar and Marianna Hewitt of Summer Fridays. Jen Gotch is OK… Sometimes I am huge fan of Jen Gotch. Her daily insta-stories take me on a BTS look […]

Shop Your Closet: Lace Overlay Romper for Fall

Lace Overlay Romper for Fall

Lace Romper Overlay | Jean Jacket | Louis Vuitton Neverfull (borrowed from Mom) | Sunglasses | LC Lauren Conrad Mules This lace overlay romper may look familiar! I featured this romper over the summer and I am repurposing this closet favorite for the fall season ahead. It is a very realistic thing to shop your closet… we can’t shop all the time. Not even as style bloggers! So, with fall right around the corner, I want to feature a few outfits (over the next several weeks) to suggest a cool-weather spin with items you already own. I hope this will inspire you to inventory your closet and shop it for the new season ahead. First up, this mustard lace overlay romper. Although the mustard color is no longer available, I also adore this romper in “Coral Cedar” and “Green Bug.” Made great for summer styled alone, it’s easy to transition to fall with a signature jean jacket, carry-all tote and neutral mules. If I had to guess, we all have these three simple items already stocked and ready to wear as the leaves begin to change. If you’re heading to a wine festival, harvest concert or date night toward the end […]
