Nothing screams summer more than celebrating the 4TH OF JULY! When I look back, I realize I never use to be that excited about the upcoming holiday. Sure, I’d attend a BBQ here and there, watch fireworks and parades and always wear a cute festive t-shirt. But I now believe no other day defines summer quite like the 4th of July! So bring on the red, white and blue because I’m ready to celebrate! I’ve linked all the best finds for Americana apparel including this lightweight sweatshirt and the cutest home decor pieces from some of my favorite retailers. Come along and go shopping with me!

I’m all about trying new things and eyelash extensions were definitely at the top of my list. I’m sure we’ve all tried the glue-on ones from the drugstore. You know, the ones that never really stick, are too big for your eyes or just look way too fake. Well, I finally got the chance to really just go for it at Deka Lash in Naperville and let me tell you, I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome. The talented and patient Kaily, applied a full set of lashes on me. It’s been about a week, so I feel that I’m well acquainted with them. I’m so glad I got them done when I did, perfect for celebrating New Years with a bang! Here is everything you need to know before you head to the salon and change your look from pretty to va-va-va voom!  What To Expect The vibes at […]

I’ve been going to the same Ugly Christmas Sweater Party for almost a decade now! You could say it’s a Christmas Tradition. I’ve worn lots of ugly sweaters in the past 10 years, lucky for you I couldn’t find any photos to share with you. The funny thing is, these days Ugly Christmas sweaters aren’t so “ugly” anymore. Some of them are actually pretty cute! For those needing help finding a funny and inexpensive ugly Christmas sweater, look no further! Or if you just want a good laugh at some of those sweaters, this one’s for you too. {Shop by clicking on the item from the above image or the links below.} // Festive AF // Flying Unicorn // Deer Hoodie // Fa La La Llama // // Sleigh My Name // Dress // Single & Ready To Mingle // // Bye Felicia // Santa Poncho // Filthy Muggle // […]

Just because it is September 1st does not mean that summer is over! I’m not saying that I’m not super excited for all things fall – pumpkin spice lattes, chunky sweaters and fall scented candles, but I just can’t believe that summer will soon be coming to an end. I’ve rounded up my favorite Amazon purchases that I made this summer. These are pieces that I’ve worn over and over again. Pieces that I will wear all the way until the warm weather ends. Since I’m in the Midwest that could be October! We never know. 1. Sunflower Midi Dress – My #1 favorite Amazon purchase this summer is this sunflower dress. I can’t tell you how many times I wore this dress this summer. It’s comfy, it’s flattering, and it’s the perfect midi length. I also think it offers a good amount of support to go bra-less. It’s such a great […]

I don’t normally talk about my birthday this much, but I thought why not. It’s a great opportunity to share my life with you. Yesterday was my 33rd birthday, so today I’m sharing 33 things I learned over the past year. (33 thing I’ve learned this year in no particular order.) 1. 33 is not old, neither is 50 2. Everyday is a day worth celebrating 3. Moisturize everyday 4. Under eye cream is a lifesaver 5. You can never get enough sleep 6. Dress size doesn’t matter as long as I feel comfortable 7. Remove the lint from the dryer lint trap before every cycle 8. Command strips are amazing 9. When you buy a house, closing costs are way more than you think 10. Decorating a home is so much fun 11. Who my true friends are 12. Real friends are not only the ones you talk to […]
