Valentine's Day Gift Guide

I missed y'all but the last few weeks have been busy with work and some fun weekend plans. Valentine's Day is this week so today I wanted to share some gift ideas to treat yourself or even for a friend! i tried to include some unique ideas including a candle making class my sister and I took after the holidays. It was so much fun I think it would be a great activity to do with someone.

Valentine's Day Pajamas

Valentine's Day is right around the corner and to me nothing makes a more perfect gift for someone else or yourself than a cute pair of pajamas. Last year I got a set of Vineyard Vines ones and I love them. I found lots of cute options at all different prices so I rounded up my favorites below!

Goals For 2020

I have to admit I am a sucker for feeling recharged in the New Year and making goals for the new year. I know a lot of people hate resolutions especially in today's world where everyone is always talking about things that are most likely not realistic. I like creating resolutions because I find it is a way to check in with myself and think about what things I want to focus on in the new year. Even if I don't accomplish everything it gives me more direction on what I want to make important for the year. This year I am going to try to be more specific with my goals and less general. I am hoping this will make things more realistic as to how I will accomplish them.

Currently Cooking This Week

I don't know about you but the holidays hit me hard this year with lots of sweet treats, meals out, and over eating. So I am trying to focus on eating less sugar and more clean food for right now. My goal is to try to stick to a Whole 30 breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I am not going to be super stick if I am going out to eat or have an occasional treat. After shopping this weekend I had no idea how hard it is to fully follow this meal plan. There are so many foods that have sugar I never even thought of like pasta sauce. I thought I would share the receipts I made for this week. I got most of them from the Whole Kitchen Sink website which has some amazing content on Whole 30. 

Breakfast: Sausage Tomato Egg Bake 
This is my least favorite recipe I made this week as it is pretty bland. I didn't add the basil but I included everything else. I used turkey sausage in the recipe but I think if I made this recipe again I would maybe use prosciutto or something smaller. Finally the shredded potato was not fully Whole 30 because it had some corn in it. 
Rating: 3 / 5

This Whole30 breakfast casserole is filled with sausage, tomato, basil and potatoes, and couldn't be easier to whip up for a Whole30 or Paleo breakfast meal prep recipe. With only a few simple ingredients and a bit of oven baking magic, you'll have a family friendly, gluten-free, and Whole30 egg bake, or be set for the week ahead! #whole30eggbake #whole30breakfastrecipes #whole30breakfastcasserole #paleobreakfast #glutenfreebreakfast #whole30sausagerecipes

2019 Recap & Updates

Hi, y'all it has been SO LONG since I have been on here but I am super excited to be back. I feel like so much has happened since I last posted a blog post. I had lots of good changes in 2019 but the blog just wasn't fitting into my daily schedule. I ended up getting a job a few months after graduation and moved to Dallas, TX! I am settled into this new chapter and am loving it. I have been missing sharing my tips, life, fashion and everything else here. I am excited and re energized to be back here with everyone. I thought the best way to catch you up with what I have been up to is by sharing my top moments of 2019!

1. Visited Niagara on The Lake

Saturday Shopping

I had the perfect summer weekend including going to the beach, watching a movie at the drive-in and playing golf! The weather was perfect and finally we had a weekend with no rain. I am ending the weekend with a fire and s'mores. My two favorite stores Lilly and Vineyard Vines have been coming out with some super cute new arrivals for the summer that I am in love with. Lilly came out with a new collection bringing back some older patterns and they are so dang cute. If you enjoy online browsing as much as I do then I think you will love this week's items!

Life Update: I Graduated & I'm Back

Hey y'all I am back today to share with you what I have been up to in the last few months. I also filmed a video too which you can watch below. I have been pretty busy the past few months but I have more time on my hands now and I felt like posting today so here we are. The most important update is I officially graduated from college a few weeks ago!! So I have been busy the last few months finishing up school, packing up, moving home, and applying for jobs. As of right now I am home and doing lots of job hunting and interviews. This is the first time in a very long time I have a little more free time on my hands. I have been enjoying it and this is the perfect time to start blogging more consistently now. I also want to be able to share with you my job journey and experiences with you as things progress. For now, I am doing some work and also trying to enjoy my free time. I am going to Florida for a week next Monday which I am excited about. Tomorrow I will be sharing an outfit post from about a month ago I never posted. I also wanted to share a few graduation pictures with you below. Thank you to all of you for sticking around throughout the years.

All American: Ralph Lauren Flag Sweater

I am so excited to share this classic outfit I wore to work yesterday. I wasn't sure if the white pants were appropriate yet but I decided to just wear them because it has finally been feeling like spring the last day or so. Today was SO nice outside! I hope everyone is having a nice weekend. Yesterday I had dinner with family and today I had a senior brunch with my sorority which is crazy that I am almost done with college. On that note sorry the past few weeks I have not been posting as much I have been pretty busy every night applying to jobs. 

I bought this sweater at a Ralph Lauren outlet this past winter and I am in love with it. It is so classy and it reminds me of summers on Nantucket! If you have a Ralph Lauren outlet around you check it out because this sweater was from the boy's department and it was like half the price of the women's version. I got it in the largest boys size and it honestly fits perfectly and you would never know it is not a women's size.

Saturday Shopping

Happy Saturday everyone!! So far I have spent the day sleeping in, looking for jobs and later I am grabbing dinner with a friend. I had a pretty tiring week so I am taking it easy today and relaxing. Last night I did some shopping for some needed items at Sephora and a went out to dinner with my parents. I LOVE looking at new items online and scrolling through my favorite sites. So when I find some items I totally am in love with I have to share them. This weeks Saturday Shopping has some items I am totally drooling over including these pom pom flats and alligator patterned Lilly dress! If you can't tell from the color theme I am 100% ready for summer ☀️

Scallops and Vineyard Vines Sperry's

It has been over a month since I posted my last outfit post! This use to be the only thing I would blog about but to be honest my outfits are not super exciting because I pretty much wear yoga pants to class or work clothes to my internship. I am super excited to share this outfit though because I am loving this scalloped detailed sweater I picked up on major sale from J Crew Factory. I paired it with my Vineyard Vines Sperry's I got for Christmas which I have not been able to wear yet because of the weather! I wore this outfit on my flight to Florida last week and it was the perfect look to travel in. 

I hope everyone is doing well. Long time no update from me. Nothing too exciting to report on which I guess is good. Just the usual school, work, etc Though I am almost done with school so most of my nights have been spent job searching (ugh) 😑

First Impressions & Review: Revlon One Step Volumizer Hair Dryer

I purchased this hair dryer at Ulta after I kept hearing it talked about on social media and YouTube. After LoneStar Southern posted a video about it I decided to give it a try for myself. I always want to get the look of a fresh blow-dry but it never turns out so this product interested me. I filmed this right after I bought it and I have now had it for about a month and I still really love it. I even got my mom to try it! I go in depth about the pros/cons in the video below but all in all I think this product is worth the hype! I would love to know your thoughts on this product if you have used it.
