My Galentine

Every year it seems my circle of friends gets smaller and smaller and honestly, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m not being cynical or closed off, I’m simply growing up, and I love watching it take it’s course.

If you don’t have a Valentine this year, that’s okay…I think it’s an important time to also reflect and appreciate the close friendships you have in your life. A little bit about me and my galentine (we both have Valentine’s, too, but can always be each other’s galentine’s). Taylor and I met back in 2012 (? WOW !) when we were in HIGH SCHOOL! We were both on the field hockey team and kind of hated every minute of it, so we bonded. We got closer and closer over the years and it’s one of those friendships that has truly never fizzled out. We make time for one another, we don’t have to do anything to have a good time, and enjoy one another’s families. Our boyfriends have gotten to be good friends as well, so it’s really fun!!

Over the past couple years, the word Galentine has been thrown around a lot and honestly, I love it. Long are the days where only people in relationships can celebrate on a certain day — let’s all celebrate. If you have a Galentine or are celebrating anti-Valentine’s in any sort of way, tell me about it!! I think it’s such a fun time of year to celebrate all love.

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you are all enjoying this FALL weekend that we are having, I know I am!

I had a really exciting day yesterday, and I would like to share the details of it with you.

I was nicely invited to cover this year’s Styleweek Northeast as press, so of course I had to go to not only show my support of these amazing local, New England designers, but also to take note and share my experience along with the designs I saw!

Let’s get right into it, shall we?

My Most + Least Worn Items in my Closet

IMG_0419.jpg

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope everyone is enjoying this summer weekend—they are numbered for sure!

Today I wanted to write a cool post that I think a lot of you will be interested in reading—My Most and Least Worn Items in my Closet! I think we can all identify with the fact that our closets (those beasts) are FILLED and with stuff that we automatically go to and thennnnn there’s the stuff that we almost never wear…but can’t get rid of!

Let’s dive right in! I broke it down to categories: my most and least worn: skirt, dress, pair of shorts, shirt, jacket, shoe, purse and earring! There are obviously more shirts that I wear a lot and more pants, but looking at my closet in the moment today, this is what I pulled!

How I Maintain my Long Natural Nails

IMG_0320.JPG

Hey everyone!

Today I wanted to talk about my nails because I get a lot of questions about them! I shamelessly will stop into the nail salon from time to time to get an occasional regular manicure for the sole reason that the nail technician usually compliments me on my nails…. (: Modest, I know!

All jokes aside, I really do get questions on how I keep them so long. They’re 100% mine and usually don’t have gel polish on them!

Spots I’ve Taken Outfit Pics In CT!

IMG_0279

Hi everyone and Happy Monday!

Today I am sharing some of the spots that I’ve had luck taking photos at in the past. For bloggers, you have to have this shield over you when you’re taking pics because 9/10 times there will be either one or more people staring at you while you strike a pose. I have honestly gotten over it and it never really bothered me that much in the first place. It’s like yeah, I have a good outfit on, this is a cool background and I’m trying to grow my blog…is that cool with you? If not, keep walking. If you’re interested, here take my business card!

That leads me to WHERE these places are! I am based in CT, so most of these places are in Connecticut or surrounding areas. I hope this helps!

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!

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!
