Im OBSESSED with this French Connection dress and Loren Hope tortoise shell bracelet that my wonderful mom gave me when she came to visit this past weekend!

I couldn't resist a buy one get the second 50% off sale for Essie and Revlon at Walgreens today! I already had the Revlon Lip Butters in Strawberry Shortcake and Peach Parfait and added the Red Velvet and Creamsicle colors to my collection! The Red Velvet is the PERFECT shade of red thats just the right combination of moisturizing stain and creamy lipstick. The Creamsicle color is a very flattering nude color thats a little peachy! I also got two new Essie shades in A Crewed Interest and Lovie Dovie.

The last couple weeks while I was working on my project I ate pretty terribly! I was too busy to worry about eating healthy so my diet consisted of mostly Red Bull, Chick-Fil-A, and pasta. Now that Im all done, Im trying to eat healthier and get ready for many afternoons at the pool! This morning breakfast consisted of a glass of strawberry Kefir (a drinkable yogurt that is amazinggg for you! Seriously, Google it!), lots of fresh berries and whole wheat cinnamon toast!

I am naturally very fair skin and freckle very easily! Im ashamed to say that for most of college I went to the tanning bed quite regularly but last year I decided that I would NEVER set foot in a tanning bed ever again OR get a natural tan outside! Don't get me wrong, I LOVE being tan! Especially because I am so fair and have very dark brown hair, I just feel like I always look better with a little color! Here are my top picks for staying tan and safe during the summer! I have tried soooo many tanning products and this is my fave! Its a spray instead of a cream or gel which works much better for me! Even when I wash my hands with creams, I ALWAYS end up with terrible tan marks in between my fingers or around my wrists! I even use this on my face! The color is completely believable, and trust me, I PILE the stuff on and it still looks like my natural tan color! During the summer, I like to use this one type of moisturizer that has a mattifying quality to it but it doesn't have any SPF in it so I like to add a few drops of sunblock to it. This spray sunblock is super refreshing when you've been sitting out by the pool all day and stays put!

I know this is not a popular thing to say, but I HATE Twilight! And because of my hatred for all things Twilight, I resisted reading the Hunger Games series for a long time. But while I was home for Spring break, one of my best friends convinced me to start reading it and I am SOOO glad I did! I read the first book in two days and am already half way through the second! I seriously cannot stop reading when I start!


  1. I was the exact same way and I read all three in like 2 weeks! I love that dish on your table, where is it from?
