My Favorite Blazer

blazer | top | jeans | shoes

First outfit post of 2019 woohoo! To start with, I bought this blazer summer of 2018 for presentations and to share a professional outfit with you all since I know many of you, like me, are in school/starting to apply for big girl jobs. I never got around to sharing it, however I did wear it for a few presentations and loved it. I purchased it from Target (I think for about $24 on sale). My only complaint is that even though I love the linen, it is SO HARD to keep is ironed. I have ironed and steamed this sucker and keep it hanging at all times and cannot get some of the wrinkles out (if you have any suggestions please share!) Otherwise I am so in love with it, and prefer love the rolled sleeves look for a more laid back appearance. I hope everyone is having an amazing start to 2019!


Happy 2019!

Tuesday, January 1, 2019

I wanted to pop in today for a quick Happy New Years!! I am so excited to start this new year with you guys and cannot wait to continue sharing with you all. In honor of 2019 I want to share with you all 9 things I would like to do this year:

1) Travel somewhere new
2) Drink more water
3) Run 4-5 times a week
4) Blog more often. I have so many ideas in terms of outfits, places to visit in Savannah, etc.
5) Work smarter, not harder (and manage time better)
6) (fingers crossed) Have my research paper published and/or submitted successfully to a research convention
7) Watch less TV; I love TV (i.e. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills), however it is such a time suck and I would like to use my time more wisely, such as reading a book or drawing/painting.
8) Wear better things than just a favorite t-shirt and leggings to class
9) Spend more time with my favorite people

Thank you to everyone for your continued readership and I look forward to the new year!

Gift Guide: For the College Girl

Monday, December 10, 2018

This is always my favorite gift guide to write, mainly because I relate to it the most (lol). All of the things on this list I either own, or really really want.

The La Mer Set:
This is one of my favorite things on the list! La Mer is pretty expensive (like way out of most college student's budget i.e this), but is supposed to have some of the best skincare products. This tester set is $95, but includes two of their best products!

Monogrammed Weekender
LOVE this weekender bag. Investing in a good weekender is perfect especially when you start college because you will traveling back and forth to visit family, going on sorority trips, etc.

Longchamp Bag: 
The perfect bag, especially in college! It's water resistant, durable, and matches everything!

Dry Shampoo: 
So I know dry shampoo does not seem like the most exciting gift, but I use this on a daily basis. People make jokes about college girls and dry shampoo, but seriously this stuff is amazing! It's slightly more expensive, but from someone who has tried TONS, this is the best.

French Press and Milk Frother:
These are on my Christmas List this year! I drink coffee like it's water and would love to start using a french press. And what better than to use one as pretty as this!


Gift Guide: For Him

Wednesday, November 28, 2018

It's the first Gift Guide of the season! Yay! My most requested from you guys was a Gift Guide for Him. I have included a few things I have bought the men in my life in previous years, as well as a few things I will definitely be buying this year!

I have the women's version of the L.L. Bean Boots and love them. I have worn them hiking, through rivers, in the snow, etc and they have been extraordinarily durable. I have also been wanting to get my boyfriend a new and smaller (than his huge L.L. Bean) travel bag and love this one. It's simple, classic, and masculine. I also bought these gloves two years ago for my boyfriend and he has gotten so much use out of them (they are flannel lined!). Let me know if you have any questions or are looking for gifts at a lesser or greater price point!
