Heading to college for the first time can be an exciting time, but it can also be incredibly stressful. Between moving away from your friends and family, scheduling classes, choosing a major, and learning your away around your school’s campus, an incoming freshman has plenty to worry about. That’s why I want to make one of the most stressful parts of college a little bit easier. Today I’m sharing a college packing list of everything you’ll need to bring with you to your new dorm room or apartment. Of course everyone is going to have a few things that aren’t on this list, but this packing list covers all of the basics!
Raise your hand if you’re the nosy friend who likes to search through your friend’s purse at every opportunity. For reference, I am raising both of my hands way, way up in the air! I’ve always loved looking through my friends’ purses, closets, bedrooms, agendas, ok…basically all of their stuff. Not because I want to get all up in their personal business, but because I love seeing what people use on an everyday basis. Today I’m going to let YOU be the nosy one. I’m sharing what’s in my everyday handbag and a pretty sweet coupon! [Read more…]
I have a shoe problem. Always have, always will. The shoe shopping addiction started with light-up sneakers in kindergarten, moved to pointe shoes in middle school, and has now transitioned into shoes of every shape, style, and color. Since I have the tendency to buy way too many pairs of shoes, I like to stick to affordable brands. Last night I was looking for a new pairs of fall heels, and I realized I was finding some ah-mazing shoes that were all under $50! I figured I should share some of my finds on the blog to help out my fellow shoe lovers! Keep reading to see my favorite fall shoes under $50 and enter to win a pretty snazzy giveaway (hint hint: Canon AND Kate Spade)!

With Labor Day just around the corner, it’s time to celebrate the end of the summer season and get ready for fall! Even though I’m ready to start embracing the fall makeup trends, the weather isn’t quite cool enough to break out the dark lips and ultra-chiseled cheekbones. Not to mention I’d like to spend as much time as possible in bikinis and sundresses while the sun is still out! Today I’m sharing an easy makeup tutorial that works for summer and fall. The subtle bronze and plum is so much fun, and my rosy lipstick is definitely going to become one of your new favorite products.

Dresses make my life so much easier. I wake up, randomly select a dress out of my closet, and I instantly look somewhat pulled together. They’re the lazy girl’s fashion BFF.

Since my dress shopping habits are a little bit out of control, I’m always searching for the cutest dresses from affordable lines. Today I’ve rounded up a variety of amazing fall dresses under $100, and I think you’re going to love each and every one!
