Trendy + Budget Friendly OOTDS


Lately, I have been trying to add more trendy pieces into my wardrobe but let’ be real, shit is so expensive these days and being a broke college student does not make it any easier. That being said, I wanted to share a few tips and tricks that I have learned along the way on how to find cheap trendy statement pieces for every girls closet. First off, thrifting, I am a huge person on second hand clothing stores. Some of my friends think it is gross but honestly if you throw it in the wash, what is the difference? My two favorite places to second hand shop are Clothes Mentor and Plato’s Closet. Most of the time I find cute pieces that are new with tags for literally 70% off the original price. Those are my favorite kind of days! Another place to get cheap trendy clothes is Forever 21. I have seen more and more bloggers starting to post OOTDs from there and you would never know. Like I always say, it’s how you style your outfit that matters, not the price tag. Lastly, my all-time favorite app is Poshmark. I have made $12,000+ on this app in two years just buy selling items I no longer want or wear. It is the REAL deal! i have also purchased some things on the app as well. It is a great way to find high end items that are lightly used at a fraction of the original price. I also like that you can bargain with the seller because the listing price doesn’t mean that it is what you have to pay if your able to get them to lower it. All in all you don’t have to go and blow $50 on a sweater just to look trendy, when there are so many other avenues to get it cheaper. Let me know what some of your favorite trendy pieces are! I always love hearing feedback from you girls!



Bathroom Remodel


I finally got around to revamping my way overdue bathroom decor. Before I jump right into the details, let me explain the background of things. I moved from a four-bedroom house that I had lived in for 18 years into a two-bedroom condo while waiting for my current house to be built. After moving in nearly four years go my parents and I just finished all of the upgrades to all of the rooms. From jumping from a house, to a condo, then to a smaller house, I never had the opportunity to really sit and think about what I wanted my room and bathroom to look like. A few months ago I got around to making things how I wanted them to be and this is the final project.

I LOVE how my bathroom turned out with the farmhouse decor. I mostly purchased everything from Hobby Lobby, Home Goods, and TJ Maxx. That being said, it is hard to link the exact items I bought but if you have any questions feel free to message me and I can try to find them!

Luxury Wooden Watch

The Johnston House


Last weekend I went to the cutest little tea house that I have ever seen! It literally was like I was in a dream. Everything about this place was amazing. I went with my Grandma and my Mom and we all had such a great time. When you first walked in you walked into a Christmas shop. It was honestly like something you would see out of a Christmas movie. While we waited for our reservation we looked around the shop. There were roughly around five rooms filled with cute ornaments and little knick-knacks. When the hostess seated us we were immediately greeted and were given individual tea pots with  hot water. On the table there was a little basket with a bunch of different tea bags inside. After we chose our tea we were then given our three tiered stand full of tea sandwiches and savory treats. The top row was berry bread, berry torte, and chocolate mouse cups. The middle plate consisted of three scones with fresh homemade raspberry jam and clotted cream. The bottom plate had tomato basil bruschetta, mango and cucumber cream cheese tea sandwiches, and spinach quiche. After great conversation and a full stomach we decided to check out the gift shop again in which I bought the cutest little jam knife and spoon made my Mud Pie as well as french tea and a crystal ornament. It was by far one of the best afternoons I have had in a while. If you are ever visiting the Cranberry area it is a must to stop there!


Bedroom Makeover



If you know me then you know how indecisive I am when it comes to my room décor. With being a blogger I am always on top of new trends which has my mind going nuts with new ideas. I love so many different styles so for me, it is hard to just choose one.

Since I moved into my new house five years ago my room went from a beach themed room, a more girly room that focused on diamonds, a chandelier, and the color grey, a boho themed room, and lastly what it is now, a modern southern styled room. I am super happy with how it turned out this time so I feel like it may stay this way until I move out. Maybe, lol.

I will tag below some of my favorite pieces that would be super cute in any bedroom along with some things that I currently have in mine.

Free People Maxi Dress


Yall, it is finally 2018!!

It is so hard to believe that 2017 is already gone but I am so ready for a fresh start! Last year was definitely a year of trial and error but I am grateful to have learned a lot through it all. That being said I am SO excited to see what this year will bring!! It has been so cold and snowy lately that I am already over it all and ready for summer to come! I have a lot of little trips planned and am so excited to share them all with you.

I bought this maxi at Macy’s a few months ago for my work Christmas party but ended up finding something else to wear. That being said I still wanted to feature it on my blog because it’ literally adorable. Not only is it very comfortable but it can be dressed up or dressed down. I paired it with my wedges from Nordstrom and my Chanel sunnies.

I hope you all had a great New Year! And good luck on your New Year Resolutions!


Free People + Shopping on a Budget


I have recently been shopping at Free People because they have the absolute cutest clothes. Although they are a little pricey you truly do get great quality pieces. For those of you who are on a college budget and or just like to spend your money on better things, there is a lot of other routes that you can take other than purchasing from the actual retail store. First off, you can go to a second hand store such as Clothes Mentor or Platos Closet. I have been to both places to sell clothes and have seen a lot of name brand stuff that is literally so cheap. I sometimes even come across things that are still new with tags! Another way to get high end items for a low budget price is to try the app Postmark. It is a great way to also sell things that you may no longer want. Who doesn’t like some extra money in their pockets? If you have any questions feel free to message me or comment below!
