Sephora Haul: March 2017

This week I found myself at my makeup shopping Mecca: Sephora. I had 2 gift cards, was already planning to be at the mall, and I was running low on some face products. It was a perfect storm! 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…

Striped Turtle Neck and Olive Jacket

In true Cincinnati fashion we’ve experienced all 4 seasons in the span of 2 weeks. Needless to say, this makes outfit planning a bit difficult from day-to-day, so I’ve been relying on some tried and true basics: Turtle neck, leggings, slip-ons, jacket. I got this striped turtle neck from Target this past fall (probably on a trip when I swore that all I needed was shampoo and laundry detergent), and I’ve dressed it up, down, and all around! It looks super cute tucked into a high-waisted skirt paired with heels…

Wedding Wednesdays: The Green Elephant in the Room

Bride-to-be confession: I turn into a total giddy school girl the moment someone asks me about my wedding plans. No, seriously. Consider yourself warned! If you ask me how things are going regarding my wedding, you will get filled in on every single detail and, if you stick around long enough, I will pull out a picture of my dress and make you scroll through my Pinterest board (…here it is if you’re interested!) Planning and all things wedding have been mostly stress free up to this point, and completely enjoyable! In fact, I&#8217…

50 (More) Random Facts About Me

So, when I wrote the first installment of 50 Random Facts About Me, I had no idea it would be viewed so frequently! I overthought the original SO many times. My internal monologue included thoughts like: “Will people think I’m conceited?!”                                                                                                    “Can I even think of 50 things?”                                                                                                           “It’s not conceited right?”                                                                                                                       “I’m not even interesting!”                                                                                                                    “Oh! Oh! That fact is sort of interesting!”                                                                                        “I’m so doing this!”                                                                                                                                       “I can’t do this” Needless to say, my…
