Dress | Sandals | Purse

This week I am vacationing on the Outer Banks so I haven’t been posting as much but since it was a rainy day today I was able to get a few blog posts edited which will be up tonight. So far I am having a great time and have been relaxing a lot which was definitely needed! I finally was able to wear this dress from Free People that I picked up from Macy’s a few weeks ago.  Today was our shopping day so it was the perfect outfit to wear especially since the weather wasn’t that nice. I paired it with some sandals from Target and my tote from Urban Outfitters. The next couple of days are jam packed with activities so stay tuned for a lot more posts! Hope you all had a great Monday!

Mac & Toz

If you are ever in Pittsburgh you MUST stop by Mac and Toz. I am obsessed with mac and cheese and this place made all my dreams come true. I went with my two girlfriends last Friday and we had such a great time and the food was just a plus! It wasn’t too pricey but is definitely more on the higher side compared to other places around but you get what you pay for. I also had a glass of their sparking rose which was originally $9 but being there for happy hour made it only $5! Yay! I can’t wait to go back and try their lobster mac!

 

My Tanning Routine

I get a lot of questions regarding my self tan routine so I figured I would make a quick blog post about it. I have tried so many lotions and either became blotchy, orange, or stayed the same color. I came across St. Tropez last year and have loved it ever since! It leaves no streaks and does not ever make me look orange! It is a little pricey but it lasts months and is so worth every penny!

Dress | Shoes

Hello & Happy Hump Day! I hope y’all are having a great week thus far. I can’t wait for this weekend because it is the last weekend before I am off to North Carolina! The beach is calling my name! That being said, I am so in love with this dress! When it comes to bargain shopping, Forever 21 never seems to fail. I purchased this maxi for literally $30 and not only is it super comfortable but it is perfect for all seasons. I paired it with some wedges from DSW and some cute cactus earrings that I purchased in Texas. Cheers to the weekend!

Stitch Fix Box – July

I decided to get a Stich Fix this month for some cute pieces to take on vacation! I only ended up keeping the dress because everything else was a size too big but I did a try on to show yall how each piece looked while wearing! I wanted to keep everything but when things didn’t fit I figured it was a sign to save some money (HA).

Mushroom Asparagus Pasta

After getting off work the last thing I want to do is make a big dinner. With working full time as well as going to college my weeks are usually super busy. That being said, I found this recipe that only took a half hour to make and I love mushrooms + asparagus so it was amazing!! Not to mention it was a big enough portion to have for lunch the following day. I linked the recipe below so yall definitely have to try it out!

Tie-Waist Shirt Dress

I usually don’t’ shop at Forever 21 but I had some time to spare so I decided to stop in. I am so happy I did because I found this dress for only $29! I figured it’s perfect for all seasons! For fall it would look super cute with thigh high boots and in the winter it would pair well with some Uggs and a scarf! It definitely will be a repeat outfit on here!

I fell in love with this top the second I laid eyes on it. I bought it at Forever 21 for only $30! The bow on the back was what won me over but unfortunately after wearing it, I didn’t like how the front of it was due to the material being a little loose. However, it was definitely a cute outfit for the day and I got a lot of complements on it!

Givenchy + Influenster

For those of you who are not familiar with Influenster , it is an app that you can download and review products on. The more products you review the more chances you’ll have to get sent free things to review. This was one of the boxes I received and I was so happy when it came in the mail! I have never used mascara with this type of wand so I had an interesting time trying it out. I may have poked myself in the eye once or twice (lol) but I love the formula!
