April Favorites


Hey y'all!

Tomorrow I start my very final month of high school. Boy, this year has flown by. It is so crazy to think that in less than four months, I will be beginning my freshman year of college. I keep telling my parents how scary it is that I am going to be attending school with 'grown ups'.

Anyways, let's get on to the reason for this post. Here are a few of my favorite things this month!

Literally My Life - THIS SONG IS SO ADDICTIVE. Eva is someone I regularly watch on YouTube and I am so impressed with this music video. I promise you will have this song stuck in your head for days, but it definitely isn't a bad thing!

(Left: Tory Burch, Right: Unisa)
While shopping at my local Marshall's, I found this great dupe for the Tory Burch Daisy Perforated Wedge. While the original shoes retail for $325, these Unisa cork wedges are only $30! So if you're in the market for a new pair of wedges for Spring / Summer, make sure to look out for this steal.


A very common spring trend is white nail polish. Although regular nail polish takes less time to apply and is a lot easier to use, I prefer the look of gel polish. Sally Hansen Salon Gel Polish is my favorite brand to use. For my nails, I have recently been using the color White Tie.

I purchased this mini LED Curing Lamp last year when I was in cosmetology school. This is the one we used in class and I am so glad I finally bought my own. It saves me a ton of money instead of going to the salon every two weeks to get a new gel polish put on my nails.

So I may or may not need every single item that Lilly Pulitzer released in the print Scuba to Cuba. The colors are muted neon. I am so extremely envious of every single girl that posts a picture wearing this print. Also did anyone else notice the Skipper Printed Popovers have gone down in price?



Currently I am binge watching Pretty Little Liars. After hearing all the commotion about A actually being revealed, I decided it was actually time to start watching it. It's been about a week and a half but I'm almost done with all of the seasons currently on Netflix..what can I say? I'm a sucker for dramatic television. 

AND YOU KNOW WHAT TOMORROW MEANS?????

Brown Hair, Don't Care


Hey y'all!

In case you haven't noticed, my hair is all one color for once. Three hours and a few hundred dollars later, I am back to having my natural color! Although the price tag wasn't ideal, it was definitely worth it. It's nice not having to worry about touching up my roots and it's even nicer knowing I don't have to spend my money on my hair coloring.

Just thought I should update y'all with a few new pictures!

Lust List #2

Hey y'all!

In case you haven't noticed/haven't had the time to creep on my blog yet, a Lust List is just a list of some of the many items on my wish list. Click here to see what I have previously posted! (Oh, and I won't complain if you feel the need to purchase any of these items for me!)


Cowboy Boot Charm Bracelet
Alex & Ani bracelets are extremely popular right now, and there's no questions why! With hundreds of different bangles (from MLB to novelties) to choose from, they are the perfect gift for any girl. They also won't rob your bank account with the simple bangles starting at only $28. 

'le pavillion' iPhone 5 & 5s case
I may or may not have a slight addiction to phone cases. Currently I am using a Lilly Pulitzer one but I have been eyeing this beautiful kate spade one for the past week or two. I absolutely love the clear phone cases but the gold polk a dots would just match perfectly with my gold iPhone (yes, I'm a basic white girl).


Zip Away Small Jewelry Organizer in Teal Stingray
I recently purchased the everyday travel case in teal stingray (currently on final sale so get it while you can!) and now I would really like to add this one to my Kendra Scott collection! The color and faux leather is absolutely stunning. It seems that I have been traveling a bit more than usual and honestly, it is such a pain having to untangle the mess of earrings and necklaces when arriving at your destination. Organization is a must for me so this would help a tremendous amount.


To me, this shirt screams SUMMER. The color would look so beautiful with a tan. Just imagine throwing this on right after coming back from a day at the beach. Comfy yet adorable, this shirt is right up my street! Love this tee as much as I do? Shoot me an email and let me know! I'll help you out with some promotional codes.

5 Lessons I've Learned From Gossip Girl

Hey y'all!

Unless you've been living under a rock, you have heard of (or binge-watched) the television show Gossip Girl. The show is filled with drama, some-what unrealistic situations and well, more drama. Although some of the episodes are a little over the top, it does actually hold some value.

Think about your decisions and actions before making them.
Starting a fight, spreading gossip, and going with peer pressure can effect the rest of your life. What may seem like a good decision now can actually ruin your future. Just take a deep breath and ask yourself, "Would I approve of what I'm doing in five years time?".

It gets better.
Although it is quite impossible to escape gossip and mean girls for the rest of your life, situations will pass. Sometimes your life may seem like it's falling apart and it's the end of the world. But in a few years or even months, you will look back on a certain time period and realize how overly dramatic you were being.

Goals are meant to be accomplished. 
Too often, girls set aside their goals in order to focus on something else (usually a lot less important things). Don't let this happen! The end result will be so wonderful and beneficial. Remind yourself of why you wanted it so bad in the first place.

 Do not settle for anything less than you deserve. 
This is so important. Everyone should be treated with love and respect. If a person is not willing to recognize how important and special you are, they are not worth your time.

Okay, this may only apply to bloggers, but oh goodness this is so me. I just had to add it!


My all time favorite episode has to be when Chuck and Blair get married. It's so lovely to finally see them commit (even if it is in an imperfect situation). But, my favorite character is Nate. He is so sweet and naive. Definitely the most down to earth guy in my opinion.

Who's your favorite character? What's your favorite episode?
