Let me start off by saying that American Eagle has been killing it lately with their clothes selection! I’ve been shopping at AE since middle school. While I ‘grew out’ of it for awhile, their brand has evolved into something appropriate for a variety of ages, so I’m happy to be shopping there again. Their clothes are good quality, not overly trendy, and affordable (especially when they have sales, which is pretty often!) I’m especially a fan of their jeans. They are also one of the few brands that makes “petite” sizes, which has been an absolute lifesaver for my short…

When I moved out of my parents’ house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to eventually adopt a puppy. Growing up, we always had pets at home, so it only made sense for me to carry on the tradition into my new life. It wasn’t long after we sent off the first rent check when we had a little furry one in our hands. I work from home, and as nice as it is, it does tend to get a little lonely. I was yearning for a companion. Only a little convincing was needed to get my boyfriend on board. I…

Ok, so tiny little confession here: I’m so bad at keeping my nails painted! I hate the way they look when they’re chipped, so I figure the best way to avoid that is to not paint them at all.

I decided to change that this month by featuring three of my favorite Essie colors that are perfect fits for spring. Sugar Daddy I love the understated look of this polish. It has that “your nails but…

You don’t have to look further than your favorite ‘big-name’ clothing retailer to find an embroidered piece of denim. Embroidery is a huge trend this spring, and that’s clear to see because stores are chock full of it! I picked up a pair of embroidered jeans from Forever 21 a few months ago. They give me a hint of nostalgia; I feel like I would (or perhaps did) wear jeans just like them in elementary school! These jeans have been such a fun addition to my closet. I love that I can wear a simple top and have my jeans be the statement piece! What…

Spring is always a highly-anticipated season for me. I love the milder seasons like spring and fall; I don’t care for summer and winter much. Unfortunately, we only get a few weeks of spring here before it starts to feel like summer, so I’m trying to enjoy it as much as I can! In celebration, here are some of my spring beauty picks. TooFaced Sweet Peach Palette // $49 This is probably my favorite ‘warm-weather palette’ at the moment. It just screams springtime! I love the pink and peach tones for a simple daytime look, and the warm browns are perfect for more…
