Chic White Jumpsuit + Hostess Baby Shower Decor Deets

I got to celebrate a fabulous friend and her baby boy on the way over the weekend and it was such a lovely day. A couple months ago she requested my help with the shower decor and I was so honored and excited. I love planning a party and I don’t really have a reason to have one of my own right now I was all about it. I actually helped Rheon with her wedding decor as well, just last may, so it was so very special to be a part of her first baby’s shower celebration just one short year later.

Master Bedroom Escape + New Fav Spa Products

I’m so excited to reveal a little corner of our master bedroom with y’all today. Our master has been a lonnnggg work in progress. For whatever reason it’s just been one of those rooms that I put at the bottom of my priority list which in retrospect makes zero sense. being that it’s the room you start and  your day in, therefore making it one of the most important room’s in your home. I will eventually share the other two walls with y’all once complete but for now this will have to do ;).

As you may have seen on my Instagram, I went to The Elm’s Hotel and Spa over the weekend with my mom and bestie. We spent the day getting pampered with an hour massage, a facial, mani/pedi, and spent time in their signature grotto. The grotto is what The Elm’s is known for and it did not disappoint. Keep your scroll to read more on the three products I could not leave that place without!

Sunless Tanning + SPF Essentials

If you saw my Instagram post over the weekend then you know that my go to and #1 at home self tanner is St. Tropez Classic Bronzing Mousse. It’s the best self tanner I’ve used to date, it never leaves streaks and always leaves my skin with a natural glowing finish. Along with St.Tropez I recently started using Tan Luxe’s self-tanning water spray and it is my solid #2 fav.

Today I’m sharing all of my go to self-tanners + tips and tricks for the best application process. along with that i’m also sharing my favorite SPF products that are essential to have in my pool/beach bag all summer long.

My Birthday Wishlist + Best Birthday Discounts

Today is my 27th birthday, why do I feel like I was just 23!?

amen to that.

Palm Leaf Southern Charm OOTD Inspo

So, I’m a big bravo channel fan, always have been and always will be. it’s not even a guilty pleasure, there is no guilt from this girl, ha! i can tell you anything you want to know about any of the real housewives franchises, Jeff Lewis’s flipping out, shah’s of sunset, below deck, and the show that inspired this look, southern charm. i have been watching southern charm since it first aired in 2014 and i just love following the cast’s lives and watching them grow up {even though they’re in they’re mostly in their 30’s & 40’s} in their cute and charming town of Charleston, South Carolina. I find Charleston to be so dreamy with it’s pastel colored historical buildings and gorgeous landscapes. It’s definitely on my list for a vacation spot in the near future. Are any of you big Southern Charm or bravo fan’s? I’m slightly obsessed and also can I just say, so thankful for social media so that I can insta stalk Cam {she’s my fav} even during the off season. She’s seriously so hilarious, real, and relatable . If you aren’t following her on insta, go do it now!

Anyways, the new season of Southern Charm just started last month and watching the cast in this cute coastal town has inspired my spring/summer look I’m sharing with y’all today.

Holy Grail, Must Have Beauty Products

If you’ve followed my blog for awhile now then you know I’m a beauty product junkie and I always love trying out new and trending products. Over the last few years but especially this past year I’ve tried so many products both name brand and drug store. I’m all about finding the perfect ones that not only work well in the moment to enhance natural beauty but also work longterm to work against the signs of aging such as wrinkles, age and sun spots, enlarged pores, capillaries, and adult acne and blackheads.

 if I only had 5 min’s to grab items before fleeing These are the beauty products that I would choose to grab (after my dogs, childhood stuffed animal, and other keepsakes of course). my holy grail, must have, go to items that I can truly tell a negative difference in my skin if I go more than 3 days without using them. these are the products that work best for my combination but mostly dry skin.

March Health Update {My Weight Loss Journey with Cyclebar}

Six weeks into 2018 {on Feb. 11th} I shared with y’all that I was down 10 pounds and today I’m excited to share that I am down another 6 LBs. We are 11 weeks into the new year and 4 weeks since my last post update. Since beginning my weight loss journey in August 2017 I’ve lost a total of 37 LBS with 16 of those LBS being in the last 11 weeks. It’s definitely been a very slowww journey to say the least, but to be honest, it’s probably been the easiest trial of trying to lose weight that I’ve ever attempted. I’m not consumed by it, it’s not controlling my daily life, and I’m not being hard on myself by putting unnecessary pressure to hit a certain number on the scale by a specific date. by Not putting an expiration deadline on my health is what I truly believe has been the biggest factor as to why this hasn’t been such a treacherous experience for me.
