My Favorite Transitional Mules

Happy Wednesday everyone!

How’s everyone’s week? Mine has been FAB! I just started a new position in New York City so I’m very excited and eager to be there. It’s been a lot of fun so far and I’m learning a lot. I was thinking of starting a segment on here called Commuting Diaries since I currently 2.5 hours per day, each way to get to work! What better way to pass the time on the train than to blog? I thought so, nothing! I’m thinking of recapping interesting parts of my day, stories about commuting (I am sure I’ll have many) and just anything on my mind as I am on the train. It might be a lifestyle, motivational, uplifting but comical part of my blog. Plus, it’ll help me pass the time and that is needed.

One Year Serious Blog-iversary

Serious blog-iversary. What’s that?

Today is August 24 and it’s my one year serious blog-iversary! I’ve owned and operated my blog for four (almost 5) years now BUT I did not keep up with it or write as much OR be half as serious as I have been with it this past year.

I am so grateful that something clicked in my head a year ago that this blog could actually be the most amazing hobby, creative release and past time in my life…it’s been the most fabulous and fun journey.

How I Maintain my Long Natural Nails

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!

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! I’ve teamed up with XO Mandy Sue, a boutique out of Newport, California to bring all of my readers and followers a discount code for their entire site. With the code RACHEL35 at http://www.xomandysue.com/ you can get 35% off your entire order! Their clothes are FAB, I posted a photo in the jumpsuit I got from them in THIS blog post, and here I am to talk about their Bedford Jeans—a personal favorite of mine.

Weekend Getaway to BVT

Hi everyone! I don’t know why, but I haven’t posted on here in a while. I had a ton of blog ideas about two months ago that I’ve since put up on here, and now it seems like I need to write up another list of ideas.

In the meantime, though, I thought I’d come on and tell you all about my wonderful weekend in Burlington, VT! My brother and his girlfriend live in the area, so my parents, myself and my boyfriend all decided to take a trip up there to visit them (and their dog, duh) and do some cool Burlington things!

Repurpose your Dresses!

Hi everyone!

Today I am sharing a post I have been thinking about writing for a while, and it is about all the dresses I’ve turned into shirts over the years!

You know when you get a T-shirt dress on sale at Forever 21 or a store like it and you think, “this is so cute, and it’s really cheap too!” Well, that feeling lasts for…just about the first time you wear it and then never again after that.

Same.
