May Rewind & Last Chance for Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale

Omg, we finally made it to the last day of school!  It felt like it would never get here!  Today, there’s a mass and classroom party, followed by a pool party at our friend’s house.  Hopefully, the weather cooperates – it’s been threatening to rain lately.

Whatever’s on your agenda, I hope y’all have a fantastic Friday and rest of your weekend.  If you missed any posts this week, you can get caught up here : Outfits Lately, Amazon Fashion Faves, Best Sales, and Morning Tips for a Productive Day.

I asked what y’all are interested in seeing more of, and the top requests were for hair and makeup tutorials.  Next month, I’ll share how I’m styling my new, shorter hair (hint : there’s a straightener involved).

In the meantime, I got on Stories and shared how I do my makeup everyday!

In the spirit of travel and make-up tutorials, I wanted to share what I can’t live without when I’m on the go!  I always love peeking into other people’s bags, so I’m happy to share what’s inside mine.

What's in My Travel Case


What a time to be alive! We’re living in a world where you can easily find Healthy Meals you Don’t Have to Cook.  They may be pricey, but you might find them worth the convenience.

Need some inspiration to get fit even when your schedule is jam packed?!  One thing I hope to encourage is that you don’t need a gym membership to get in shape.  You can still get a good workout at home in just about 20 minutes!

It’s hard to stay productive in the Summer, I get it.  So I thought now was a good time to share how I start my day in order to GSD!

Morning Routine (2)



Now that summer is here, we’ll be spending lots more time outside and in the backyard. You don’t have to leave home to have a good time. 😉

Have a fantastic weekend!
