Bedroom decor: see my faves from MY room!

IMG_0220.JPG

So lately I’ve been obsessed with bloggers showing their readers their apartments and I wanted to do something like that myself!

While I currently live at home, since I just graduated college, I still have my own space and I really love it!

Throughout college my room went through a transformation—it seemed like every time I came home on break, something about my room was different! One time, if you can believe it, my parents had painted my room a dusty pink! After the initial shock of my room being a different color set in, I actually really loved it.

During the winter in my senior year, my mom and I started going to Marshall’s and Burlington to see what we could find for my new, very grown up bedroom. I think what we found (and are still finding) are awesome pieces that I will hopefully have and cherish no matter where I move in the future.

Let me take you on a tour of my most favorite parts of my room at home!

Burnt orange is the new black

IMG_0197.JPGHi everyone and happy Sunday! I hope everyone is resting up for the week ahead, that’s what Sundays are for, right!?

I’m here chatting today about my new go-to color: burnt orange! I really used to not know how I felt about it until I started wearing it more often and people keep saying, “that’s your color” so, I’ll take their word for it and go with it!

IMG_9942.JPG

Hi people! How is everyone’s week going?!

Today I am on my blog sharing how I can take one outfit from day to night with just a couple little outfit switch-outs. 

Sometimes us gals on the go need some tips in order to 1. keep our sanity 2. save on time and 3. stay looking fab. Ever been out all. day. long and think, “well, I have something to do tonight, how the heck am I supposed to change from this to something completely different without going home in between? I don’t have time to stop home!”

You don’t have to!

Good morning everyone!

It’s another hot hot day, so I’m staying inside and catching up on some work and crossing some things off my to-do list! I love days that I can just mentally organize my life (and my desktop)—it makes me feel put together, even if I am not!

I wanted to post today on my blog because I have really exciting news!

How I Organize My Makeup

DSC_0139 copy.jpg

Hey there everyone! Today I am bringing you a blog post I have been wanting to write for a while, but it was never the right time!

Up until this past week, I lived at college in Rhode Island. That means that half my stuff was always at school, while the other half was at home. It bothered me sooooo much that my stuff was not all in the same place. However, now that I have moved back home while I job search, all of my stuff is in the same place again (haven’t had this feeling since highschool) and that includes all my makeup, hair and skin products! YAY!

All that being said, it was time to go through all of my stuff and see what I use, what I should use more and what I don’t use. By those categories, I was able to organize my things in their respective places in a way that works for my life. Let’s get started!

Ten Facts About Me

DSC_0119.JPGHi everyone!

I realized a couple days ago actually that I have NEVER done a ‘get to know me’ post! I have my about page on my website, but I’ve never addressed certain personal matters that could be interesting!

I personally LOVE when other bloggers have a Q&A or a 10 Facts post (maybe I’m just super nosey?), so I thought that would be a fun thing for me to do as well.

How I do my signature top knot

IMG_6702.jpg

Different hair styles are SO fun to me! I think hair is such a challenge. Makeup can be learned, practiced and perfected to your liking; style takes years to build, but once you know what you like and what works for you, you’re golden. Hair, on the other hand is always a surprise.

I don’t know about you, but one day I can straighten my hair and it’ll look a certain way, and the next do the exact same thing and it can look completely different…what is with that?! Never mind curling my hair, that’s a shot in the dark, and so are certain updos, braids and ESPECIALLY top knots.

So, how do I get my signature top knot? Let’s get started!

Hidden Gems

IMG_8019Happy Sunday, everyone! Today I am writing about how and where to find the best pieces, that fit your style and wardrobe!

The idea for this blog post came to mind, because in the picture above, I am wearing a $4 sweater that I found at the place my grandma lives! It goes to show that you don’t have to be looking in the trendiest place to find such a gem. This sweater probably has a story that I may or may not want to know about, but the fact that it is mine now is so cool to me!
