Anniversary Sale: Beauty

Okay this is my last post about the Anniversary Sale, promise! There’s some stuff I haven’t touched on in the sale yet and in particular, beauty! There are still some awesome beauty buys to be had, from essentials, to trying out new products, the #nsale is the time to do it! Here are some of my picks!


Philosophy Amazing Grace Body wash

love philosophy products and this scent is a fan fav!



Clarisonic Mia 2

If you don’t have a clarisonic yet this is your sign to get one. I got mine for Christmas a couple years ago and cannot recommend it enough. I use the acne cleansing brush heads because I still struggle with acne. Use this once after washing your face for the night and you will never go to bed without using it again. It gets so much makeup and gunk off your face that you didn’t even realize was still there after washing. I have never felt like my skin was cleaner than after using it!




Viva La Juicy Perfume set

I have this and it is probably my all time favorite perfume it rivals D&G Light Blue! It smells so good!


Sultra The Bombshell curling wand

I’ve heard some really awesome things about this wand, if you’re in the market for one try it out!


Glamglow Glamazing Set

Comes with 2 different face masks and eye treatments! If you search this brand on youtube you will see tons upon tons of beauty gurus reviews on it. Everyone seems to just go gaga for it! I have never tried them but am definitely intrigued!

Hanky Panky regular rise thong

Now I realize this is not really a beauty item BUT these are the most comfortable underwear on earth. Pretty pricey, but hold up so well and 100% worth the comfort and great to get during the sale. Seriously if you don’t have any, you MUST try them. now.


Voluspa Candles

These are another fan fav that everyone seems to be loving! Whether lighting them around your house or treating yourself to a bubble bath and spa night they are sure to calm and relax you!

Only a few more days left of the Anniversary Sale, if there is anything else you’ve had your eye on now is the time to snap it up before prices go up August 3rd!

Summer uniform














white tank (sold out, similar here & here) | boyfriend shorts (LOVE!) | sandals | bag | bandana | aviators | necklace | earrings | ring (on sale!) | bezels & bytes fitbit bracelet | druzy open bangle | renegade cluster bracelet

Some form of this outfit will be my summer uniform, mark my words! I finally, finally found a pair of boyfriend shorts I love that a) don’t break the bank (excuse me rag & bone $200+) b) are cute and c) aren’t huge! The tank I got from the half yearly sale but since it was only $16 it didn’t take long to sell out, but I linked a couple super similar options for you! Everyone needs a good white tank in their life for hot summer days! I wore my hair natural because the day we shot these pics it was INSANELY humid and I knew my hair didn’t stand a chance anyway. On the advice of my sister, who has VERY curly hair, I used Aveda Be Curly Curl Enchancer cream to tame my frizzy natural waves. I love that it helps define my waves/curls without leaving them crunchy.

Hope everyone has a lovely weekend! Make sure to check back Monday for another fun giveaway!! Thank you for reading! 🙂

V-day date night LBD





IMG_4546 IMG_4547



LBD (old, similar, love this & this too) || pink jacket (old, similar, love this too ($16!) || nude wedges (similar) || bracelet (similar) || purse (similar)|| necklace (super similar)|| earrings || lipstick (shade honeyed) with this gloss on top (shade sophia)

This Valentine’s date night look is one that is super easy to achieve with pieces you probably already own. Everyone has a little black dress (LBD) or in my case many LBDs. This one was super cheap from H&M a long time ago, I think I paid $15. It doesn’t have to be expensive to look nice! I obviously love pink so already have a few pink jackets in my closet and thought it was appropriate for Valentine’s day, but you could pair this with any jacket you like for a date night look. A simple black blazer would work well too. I contemplated pairing my LBD with a cream lace blazer from F21, but wanted a pop of color. This chunky sparkly cuff was my wedding bracelet. I still adore it and love to wear it for special dress up occasions like this! The Etsy shop I got it from is no longer on Etsy, which is SO sad because all her pieces were amazing. This is my favorite pink lip combo as of lately! I curled my hair a bit different too, this is more of a vintage waves type of curl rather than my typical “mermaid waves” look. It’s fun to change it up every now and then.

So what is everyone’s Valentine’s Day plans? I love that it’s on a Saturday this year so we can hang with our little nugget during the day!

Thanks for reading! xo

Valentine’s date night











top (H&M old, similar, another here) | lace skirt (F21 old, similar) | coat (similar) | heels (similar) | clutch (similar) | necklace | bracelet | lipstick (in color darling, love how moisturizing it is for a drugstore find also have color honeyed & am obsessed with it! The perfect pinky nude)

I adore this pink & white look for Valentine’s day! This is definitely a more girly girl option for a V-day date but that’s why I love it so much. The blush tones and white just make me think spring time! But the snow says otherwise 😦

I put this look together from pieces I’ve had forever, besides the coat that is semi new. But they are all easy finds and can be worn so many other ways. Especially into the next season. The simple crystal necklace puts the emphasis on the pretty lace detail in the skirt. Which I love year round. I’ve been wearing my hair straight recently, sometimes it’s nice just to change it up a little!

I hope you guys like this look as much as I do! Another Valentine’s inspired date night look will be up Monday! Stay tuned!

comfy coodles









cowl neck tunic (similar) | leggings (the best everrr) | boots (same brand diff pattern) (similar lace pair but $$$) | crossbody bag | sunnies | earrings (similar) and here | link bracelet | lipstick (color creme cup) | gloss

When I was little we used to have this saying. Whenever we wanted to get in our jammies and be comfortable we would say get comfy coodles. I really have no idea where it came from but I still to this day say it quite often, haha. That is exactly what this outfit is, comfy coodles but still looks put together. These leggings are still my favorite! They wash amazingly well too. This tunic is so darn soft and the perfect length for leggings. Sorry it’s so wrinkled! I didn’t realize until looking back at the pics. If you are in the market for a new crossbody bag this one is perfect! It comes in 4 colors and is only $32!! Looks very similar to Rebecca Minkoff. Speaking of her, I am lusting hard over a blush pink crossbody of hers I saw at Nordstrom the other day! My earrings are super old but I linked a few cute similar pairs.

Oh also this “braid” is soo ridiculously easy and looks cute! Perfect for when you want your hair out of your face and don’t have a ton of time. If you want a tutorial let me know! I’m trying to grow out all my layers so I have better braid hair. That sounds so stupid, but whatever! LOL

Thank you so much for reading! I know I say that at the end of practically every post but I just want you to know just how much I truly appreciate you taking some time out of your day to visit my blog. It means the world to me!


Valentine’s day gift guide- pink!

OB-vday pink

lipstick || pumps || beanie || bag || earrings || dress || ring || sunnies || coat || scarf || watch

Oh Valentine’s day, how I love thee. I know so many people complain that V-day is simply a hallmark holiday but I don’t care. I love it! I don’t know if it has to do with my love of love, sappy movies, romance, chocolate, paper goodness (i.e. valentine’s) or just the color pink! But I think it’s a great holiday to tell the one’s you love just how much they mean to you. I will definitely miss being a teacher on this holiday, because Valentine’s parties are so much fun & it’s so sweet all the love your kiddos show you (including the ridiculous amount of chocolate you receive)! This gift guide focuses on the color pink. If you haven’t figured it out already pink is my favorite color. I like all shades of pink but light blush pink is my absolute fav. Not to mention pink is a great color to transition into spring! I would be so happy to receive any of these gorgeous pink gifts and think they would be great for any special lady in your life, even if you just want to treat yourself! 🙂

I especially love the Kate Spade watch (hint hint honey!)

The MAC lipstick in shade creme cup is my favorite babydoll pink lipcolor. And I really need a pair of pink pumps in my life! I can’t believe I don’t have a pair yet, those one’s are the perfect price & color.

What is your favorite part about Valentine’s day?
