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 […]

Can you believe Christmas is a week away?!? I feel like we say this every year. Every year I think I’m going to start earlier and plan better. And then all of sudden – POOF it’s over! At least I was able to finish Christmas shopping on Sunday which feels like a big weight has been lifted. How about we call that a win!  Today I’m sharing my own wish list, in hopes of giving you a few more ideas for that special someone on your list.  Maybe you’ll see something on this list you never would have thought of. This year I was really hoping to get many more gift guides created but time is running out fast so this will be my last one for the holiday season. Let me know if you’ve enjoyed my holiday gift guides. If you are looking for help to find more gifts […]

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 // […]

Can you believe Thanksgiving is only days away? I feel so behind on all things holiday, which is odd because I got the Christmas decorations out this past weekend. We even hung lights outside and lined the walkway up to the front door with giant candy canes. The outdoor decorations already look very inviting. To the outsider, I have it all together and am ready for the holidays. Full disclosure and full transparency, there’s boxes all over the house! Clearly I’m not Instagram ready!
