Off-The-Shoulder Top | White Ripped Jeans (DIY): similar | Fringe Bag: similar | Gold Sandals ℅ Little Mistress

So I’ve had this irrational fear of off-the-shoulder tops, but I think I’m finally getting over it. Why have they always scared me so much, you ask? Because if you’re photographed from the chest/shoulders up, it would look like you have no clothes on. And my friends, nothing is scarier than looking like you aren’t wearing anything in a picture…except maybe spiders and ax murderers. But you know what I Read More

Honey Beauty Products:

Have you ever wondered how people come up with all these weird at home, diy beauty remedies? Like who looks in their kitchen and thinks what should I rub all over my face today? Oh an avocado…or baking soda…or honey. Um, when I look in my kitchen all I think about it what’s going in my belly. My sister and I were talking about this and she said that for some reason she’s been having the urge to put honey on zits. So apparently that’s how Read More

Floral Dress ℅ Sheinside | Black Mules | Black Purse: similar

I need you guys to settle another debate for me and Cody. What color is this floral dress? I thought it was going to be black because online it said it was black, but when I got it, it looked more blue to me. But Cody says it’s definitely black and I really want to believe him because black is my favorite color to wear and I really want this dress to be black. But I think he might be wrong. But then again, I’ve always been colorblind in the past when it comes to navy and black (Exhibit A, B, and C) so maybe Read More

I have been on the hunt for the perfect pair of denim shorts for, like, ever! Seriously, why are all shorts so short?! I mean, I’m all for showing off your legs in some short shorts but nobody wants to see your butt cheeks hanging out there. I tried on so many shorts while hunting for the perfect pair and they were all waaayyy too short! But then, the Read More

Each year, I fight summer and wear jeans the majority of the time, and I end up spending my summer hot and miserable. Jeans + 100 degree weather does not mix. But I think summer has finally gotten the best of me and my jean loving ways.

So, Cody and I sold our house. Yes, the one we bought just one year ago. I know, we’re crazy and can’t make up our minds about where we want to live. This makes 5 towns in two years. But now we know what we want…I think πŸ™‚ Anyways, we’ve been busy packing and getting all the documents in order to sell, plus starting to look for new places to buy. Let me say, it has been stressful and tiring, and I’ve been in need of a vacation. I even strained my hand muscles lifting heavy boxes (well, heavy to me, light to Cody), and I got a huge bruise on the back of my leg. Needless to say, I was in desperate need to take a break from packing to relax.

While we didn’t have time to go on a sun-filled vacation to the beach, I was bound and determined to bring the sun-filled vacation to our house. It was time for a stay-cation! Our bedroom was my favorite room in our house, so it was nice to get to have a relaxing afternoon lounging in my favorite place as my final farewell to our home. With some fresh fruit, a tropical smoothie, and a magazine, it felt Read More
