Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday! I wanted to share with you some apartment inspiration. Can you guess why?? That's right... I'm moving!  I am still staying in Savannah however, I am getting ready to move into a new apartment and I am so excited! Once my room is decorated I will do a full post so you all can see the finished product.

I already have a bedspread (you can probably guess what it looks like) and am now trying to decide the right 'mix' of pillows. I really love the minimalist look with pops of color. Some of my favorite stores that I have looked at are Anthropologie, IKEA, and Urban Outfitters. I already have a few bedroom pieces, but am having a hard time finding a smaller natural wood dresser. I am also looking for some larger woven baskets for my bedroom. I would love recommendations if you have any, send me an email!


My Current Skincare Routine

Wednesday, July 25, 2018


Happy Wednesday everyone! I wanted to share with you all my current skincare routine! Clarisonic was kind enough to send me one of their Clarisonic Mia face brushes. I was so excited because I have wanted one for a while. I have struggled with really bad acne for a long time and have a lot of trouble managing it even though I take good care of my skin. A few of my friends (who have beautifully clear skin I might add!) suggested to me trying Clarisonic.


This is the Clarisonic I was sent. I was also gifted their Acne Cleansing Duo and let me be the first to say their acne brush head has made a huge difference. I started using the Mia in the mornings on my skin. After a couple weeks I started noticing a huge difference with the acne on my forehead (one of my problem areas). It is now completely clear and the acne I usually get on my cheeks has hugely improved. I coupled this with my Palmer's Coco Butter Lotion because it is supposed to be good at removing scars and dark marks which acne can frequently cause. Then, before I got to bed I put benzoil peroxide (a common anti-acne treatment) on my face to sleep in. This combination has made a huge difference in my skin and confidence!

Hope you enjoyed, I linked all of the specific products I use! Let me know if you have any questions ;)

Sorority Recruitment with Snapfish

Monday, April 16, 2018

Chelsea's Outfit: Similar DressNecklace Similar Heels
 
Did you guys know I used to be historian for my sorority? That means that I was in charge of scrapbooking and making photo books for events such as recruitment, tabling, or anything where we wanted to showcase sisterhood photos. This was definitely the perfect position for me since I loved photos and being creative with them.

I was SO excited when Snapfish reached out to me for a collaboration doing just this! It is near the end of the semester, meaning this summer sororities will be planning and getting ready for recruitment. I think photobooks are perfect for recruitment because they allow you to highlight your sorority's favorite photos throughout the year and it's easy for PNM's (potential new members) to look through and see events from the past year.

When I made this photobook with them, their system was very easy to use and it gave me complete control over every page. I could choose from tons of fonts, stickers, number of photos on each page, number of pages, etc. It was user friendly and I would definitely use them again! They also have an amazing set of graduation gifts found here. Right now with the code YAYGRAD you can receive 40% site wide (ya hear that?? think graduation invitations, recruitment photos....) 

Thanks for reading guys! Hope you have a great week ;)
