2018 Swim Guide

If you are a college student with spring break around the corner or just have a tropical vacation coming up, I AM SO JEALOUS. I have zero trips planned for the next several months because I’m so used to working all summer long! Regardless, I still find myself online shopping for swimwear because I love seeing all the new styles from season to season. Here are my 2018 picks! One pieces are all the rage now. This one has an adorable low back detail with vertical stripes which are so flattering. It’s also by Billabong so it has that sporty, […]

How to Get Glowing Skin

If there is one thing I love, it is summertime when I’ve got a tan going and I don’t need foundation or bronzer or anything for my skin to have that beautiful glow and natural dew. But it’s not summertime, and I have the furthest thing from a tan going for me. So, I have found a routine and some products that still make me feel like a bronze goddess even when I’m not. Step One:                     Add some dew with a face oil. In the winter I am extremely dry […]

Product Highlight: Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray

When I go through in with my hair styling products I have three goals: hold, texturize, and volumize. Usually this means a hairspray and either a texturizing spray, dry shampoo, or both! But, after discovering the Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray, all my needs are met with just one product! I have to give full credit to my good friend Kelsey for this one. She introduced me to it and it is now a total staple in my routine! What it does: Soaks up any oil to keep your hair fresh and grease free throughout the day Creates amazing texture without […]

How to Clean a Beauty Blender

I have already done a post on cleaning your makeup brushes, which you can find here, but what about a beauty blender? For me the routine is very different but still super easy! I even have some dupes for the Beauty Blender Cleansing Solid. When you buy a beauty blender you also have the option to buy this cleansing solid. The sponge itself runs you $20 dollars, and the cleansing solid is an additional $16 dollars at Sephora. You can even get this to clean your beauty blender on, which costs another $20. If you know me then you know […]

Weekend Getaway: Vegas

I am a weekend getaway junkie, and Vegas is one of my favorite short-trip destinations. It usually has inexpensive flights from Denver, you can always find a hotel deal, and there is so much to do when you’re there! Last week when my mom had to go there for work I decided to join her and extend the stay over the weekend. Here is a recap of our trip! Friday: I flew in Thursday evening and on Friday my mom had to work, so I had the day to myself. I was looking to zen out, so the first thing […]

But what about practical? Fashionable? Something your significant other will actually like? Finding a balance is difficult but this year I found the perfect gift, a wood watch, thanks to JORD. Jord is a company that makes fashion forward, high quality, […]

Maybe you have seen some of these products too and wondered if they are really worth it or if you’d rather not spend the money and shake up your routine.

Study Abroad in Photos: Italy

Well, its officially been two years since I started the biggest adventure of my life: studying abroad in Italy for four months! To some this may seem like no big deal, and to many this may seem like the biggest deal ever. For me, it was huge because I’m a total home body and extremely close with my family, so to up and leave the country for the first time in my life and be gone for four months was pretty ballsy on my part. To say this was the experience of a lifetime is an understatement. Not only did […]
