How to Get Ahead at Work

Adulting can be hard, especially when we’re talking about it in regards to the professional setting. The regular 9-5 grind (or 7-7 in my case!) can become monotonous, and aspirations and passions can become diluted and forgotten. Lately, in my own professional life, I’ve been making a huge effort to get ahead at my work and in my career. No more drifting along and being one of thousands of employees, no! I’m really working to stand out, and be an asset to my department. My sudden professional epiphany sort of inspired this…

Wedding Wednesdays: My Wedding Shoes

In today’s installment of Wedding Wednesdays, I wanted to introduce you to my wedding shoes! *Drum roll, please!* Let me just say, this selection sort of shocked me. I was convinced I would end up with Jimmy Choo’s or a pair of Manolo Blahnik’s that were just shy of $800 (I’m cursed with expensive taste, remember!) I’m happy to report my shoes were far less than $100, and they perfectly match my color scheme of blush pink and gold…seriously, though…how pretty are these! LOOK! LOOK! These…

Of course, promising myself I would only buy what I needed led to talking myself into buying 3 new products, but I mean…I had gift cards! (I have a problem!) Anyways, I wanted to share what I picked up, in case any of my fellow makeup addicts were interested! Re-purchases (What I actually went for): Kat Von D Lock…

Wedding Wednesdays: A Wedding Ready Smile with Smile Brilliant + Giveaway

This post is in collaboration with Smile Brilliant I’m going to be completely honest, not long after I got engaged (I’m talking like later that same day) I began planning. It’s in my DNA to be organized, proactive, and well, prepared. I immediately began thinking about venues, and dresses, and who to invite, and how I thought my hair should look-and OHMYGAWD …I have to tone up, I have to be tan, I have to have white teeth! The toning up thing takes time, dedication, and discipline (I’m happy to…
