    2022 Reflection & 2023 Goals

    Hi y’all, it’s time for some reflection and new goals! I’m so glad I get to share with you my reflection from 2022 and what I’m trying to achieve in 2023. 2022 Reflection Last year, I shared with y’all a vision board and I did not really accomplish most of it. I didn’t podcast more, I didn’t get back into riding, and I didn’t buy a house. However, I did read more. This past year, I spent more time with people (went out more, celebrated more) and achieved one of my lifelong goals (walking the lawn for UVA commencement). In June, I celebrated my best friend graduating from her medical…

    Best Purchases of 2022

    Hi y’all, I know it’s been a hot minute since my last post. However, I’m really excited because I have a posting schedule made for 2023! I’ve started to focus on my content calendar for 2023. I want social media (Tiktok, Instagram, Youtube) to be more manageable. For now, I’m so excited to share my best purchases of 2022. But, it wouldn’t be a best purchases of 2022 post without some of the worst. I keep seeing Youtube videos of these. However, I can only manage about 1 youtube video a week (thanks to country wi-fi). Before we get into the purchases, if you’re ever curious about things I like,…

    Spring Outfits 2022

    Spring is just around the bend and I love spring outfits! I will need someone to remind me that I do not have any vacations planned any time soon (and a graduation to plan for!). However, styling spring clothes is one of my absolute favorite things to do. I love styling different pieces to make them super versatile and pieces I can use over and over again. While I know I can eventually sell clothes, I also want to make sure that I get my money’s worth and that I use items multiple times. Spring Outfits Styled for You Martine Lileeze Dress ($228) paired with Havainas ‘You’ Flip Flop ($42)…

    Baby Shower Gift Ideas

    Oh baby! Baby shower gift ideas have been coming to me left and right. Maybe it’s because baby shower gifts are definitely something I love shopping for. They’re adorable and I know that some little baby is going to enjoy it! One thing I’ve noticed is that new moms and dads are putting certain things on their lists, and they’re typically things that they must needs. However, I like to think of the may need or something they might not have thought of (or wouldn’t ask for). It seems the majority of my friends are now either firmly in the seriously dating, married, or having kids section of life. This…

    Home Organization

    Home organization. This is something I’ve struggled with other the years, especially since the house I live in right now doesn’t have any built-in storage minus closets. One thing that I don’t like is spending a ton of money to organize. It’s tough when so many organizational things are so expensive, so I tried to go to places that have easily accessible things or things that you could swap out for something else that is similar. I’ve also talked about home decor. Decor is great, I love decorating. Everyone loves a good vibe and feeling to their home. But, the decor can also be functional. I picked neutral colors when…

    Reselling Tips

    Reselling tips are in hot demand as people continue to clean out homes and are trying to find a way to get their items new homes. I’m one of them. I have so many clothes that I just don’t wear anymore. This is an excellent way to help out your financial situation and create some extra income. Reselling also gives you an opportunity to take fast fashion and make it more sustainable. There are also people who no longer buy products first hand, and will only buy from these “second hand’ sites. You will often find items for much less than original retail cost but still in fantastic condition. Reselling…

    Mood Board Home Vibes

    A Mood board and vision board I find are very synonymous with each other. I have been thinking about how I plan on decorating my future home, especially as I start buying things that are nicer or are things that I can use for a long time. I’m a sucker for Pottery Barn-like those are my home vibes for real. However, I also know it’s not realistic for me to plan on decorating my entire future home in Pottery Barn. One thing that I really want in my future home is storage…I currently live in an older colonial “farmhouse” for lack of a better way of describing it, and there…

    Favorite Products

    One of my favorite things is seeing what everyone’s favorite products are. There is obviously a reason that you love them. So, today, I thought I would share mine with you. Just a heads up, this post is not sponsored. These are products that I use all of the time and truly adore! Tula’s Purifying Cleanser | $28 | I love this stuff. It lasts for a long time and it makes your skin feel so soft. My face has never been as soft until I started using this stuff. An alternative would be this Neutrogena face wash. It’s less than $9 and found at Target, Walmart, CVS, etc. Rose…

    Shop Til You Drop | Black Friday Cyber Monday Sale Week Purchases

    Shop until you drop or can’t click anymore! I wanted to share my purchases from the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale week. I’m definitely still waiting on things to come in, and that’s fine-I’ll review the things I have, and let you know if I’m still waiting on them if they haven’t shipped yet. Shopping is one of my favorite hobbies (hence, a blog on style), and I’m so glad I get to share these with you! Teleties | I bought the small size tortoise and coconut white hair ties and then I got the tortoise headband. I’ve never had one of their headbands before and I’m super excited to try…

    Gift Guide: The Experience

    Are you buying for the person who has everything? This gift guide is for them! Instead of shopping for items, it is all about different experiences you can help them out with! When thinking about different gift guides, I knew I needed to make one for the person who has everything. When creating the Gift Guide: The Experience, I tried to think about things that make people happy. I created a list of different experiences that people in your life might enjoy. When making this gift guide, I tried to think about what people wouldn’t spend money on. Subscriptions for coffee? Not everyone’s cup of tea, but that’s why it…
