We’re Engaged!

HOW IT HAPPENED: For about four years now, Hayden and I have had the tradition of heading to Vail for our anniversary and enjoying a relaxing weekend together – this year was no different. We decided to head up on Friday morning and leave Sunday morning so that we would have two full days in the mountains. About a month before our weekend getaway, Hayden suggested that he make plans for us on Friday, and I make plans for us on Saturday. That sounded good enough to me! The night before we left we went to my parents house for […]

Everything About HAIR

Getting your hair done is always so exciting and fun but it’s super important to know how to communicate exactly what you’re wanting with your hairdresser ! Here are my tips for doing so, so that you can leave the salon loving your new hair! 1.

Four Fall Jackets Every Girl Needs

I am a full blown jacket hoarder. It’s the first section I gravitate towards when I’m shopping and definitely the largest part of my closet. Here is a breakdown of four jackets every girl needs for fall: 1) Denim In my opinion, a denim jacket is the perfect way to transition to fall fashion. I especially love this one because the built in hoodie underneath makes it that much warmer and more practical for fall. This goes with everything and is great for everyday, casual wear! Linked here! 2) Leather (or faux, like mine) Another staple every girl should have […]

Float Therapy Experience

I wouldn’t consider myself a high-stress person, but everyone likes to unwind from time to time! When I need a break, I’ll go get my nails done or maybe even get a massage, but this weekend I experienced a new way to relax: float therapy. Vive Float Studio in Cherry Creek was nice enough to invite Hayden and I down to their studio to try out float therapy (though they offer many other rest and recovery services too) and we had a great time. I can’t even try to explain what float therapy is or all of its benefits, so […]

Let’s Talk Lip Care

I’m all about having hydrated, soft, and glossy lips. 95% of the time I do my makeup for work and just throw a lip balm or clear gloss anyways, so I want it to be something good, not something I have to reapply 20 minutes later. I have two lip products to share with you guys today that are complete game changers for the everyday girl who’s not putting on a red liquid lip every day. I’ll start with the Kopari Lip Glossy. This stuff is awesome! It smells like you’re on a beach and gives you that super glossy, […]

First Glossier Experience

As most of you know last week I was in California for a little vacation! My dad’s entire side of the family and my brother and his girlfriend live all over LA so I try to get out there at least once a year to see everyone. This time I went during the week, so while family was working during the day I had a little bit of time to myself to explore LA. One of the things on my list was to shop around on Melrose because the Glossier store was there. Where Do I Even Begin?   When […]
