Weekend Getaway: Beaver Creek, CO

Another year with an amazing guy, another excuse to escape to the mountains for a couple days for some quality time together. Last weekend Hayden and I got to head up to Beaver Creek to celebrate the 6 year mark and we had an awesome time. Here’s what we did: Friday: Hayden picked me up from work and we headed up! From Downtown Denver, Beaver Creek is just over a two hour drive. Luckily we aren’t in the crazy ski season yet so there was almost no traffic. We got in around 5:30 and immediately checked into our hotel, the […]

The Perfect Anniversary Present (If You Don’t Really Do Presents)

I decided I need to start doing way more posts that are smaller and more concise. I love doing really elaborate, in depth posts telling you guys everything I know about a topic, but those posts take so long that it limits my ability to post as much as I’d like! So, without further adieu, this is my first attempt at a shorter, more compact post! Here goes nothing! For those who don’t know, my boyfriend and I celebrated our 6 year anniversary this week! (The guy snatched me up when I was only 16!) For our anniversary we usually […]

Cozy Bed Guide

Let me go ahead and start this post by apologizing for being the worst blogger ever lately. It’s been a couple of weeks since my last post and I haven’t been as active on Instagram lately because I’ve been slightly distracted by my new auntie status- and let me just say, Ella Rose Gifford is the most perfect human ever!!! Exhibit A: Most of my spare time is spent rushing over to my sisters to snuggle this little one, but I am finally getting back into a routine now that she’s almost two weeks old! Onto the post! I totally […]

Shay Mitchell Makeup Tutorial

Isn’t Shay Mitchell everyones girl crush? Cause she’s definitely mine! Most people know her from her Pretty Little Liars days, a show I never actually watched, but I do follow her on Instagram and I keep up with her Youtube channel pretty regularly, too. I was watching this video the other day and got inspired to do a makeup tutorial that was similar. Similar meaning none of the products are the same and I didn’t take nearly as many steps, but a tutorial nonetheless with glowy skin, matte shades of brown on the eyes, thick brows, and a nude lip… […]

Bootay Bag Review

Can I just say that I love monthly subscriptions? I love them because I always forget that I have them and then I get them in the mail and its like a surprise present from myself, to myself. Well ladies, listen up because today I’m here to talk about BootayBag, a monthly subscription service you’re sure to love that is “changing the way women enjoy underwear”.   The Company:  You know I already love BootayBag because they are a Denver based company, but in addition to that they are a company I totally support because…. They give back- for every […]

Sneak Peak: Fall Sweaters from Violet Joy

Am I the only one who started dressing like it was fall several weeks ago? Especially with a 9-to-5 job now, I think its so much easier to dress business casual when the weather is a little crisp and you can just throw on a sweater and go! The other day while I was shooting new arrivals for Violet Joy I fell in love with so many of the sweaters we have coming that I had to get on here and do a post about them. As some of you have probably seen, I have been working very closely with […]

PSA: My favorite lipgloss EVER is now at Nordstrom Rack!

The other day I was casually strolling through my favorite section in Norstrom Rack when I saw the MAC logo out of the corner of my eye. As a Norstrom Rack regular and a MAC freelancer I knew this was a new display so I walked over, half expecting to find a bunch of unsuccessful MAC products that were probably in shades I would never even think of wearing. I was mostly right, but before I gave up I just so happened to stumble upon my favorite lipgloss of all time. Ample Pink Plushglass by MAC is something I can come […]

DIY French Themed Baby Shower

My sister is having a baby!!!! We held the baby shower last weekend and unfortunately I am just now getting around to posting about it! For the shower, I planned the entire thing but I had a LOT of help executing all my big ideas. To start: the theme. My sisters name is Jaclyn and one of the names she is considering for the baby is french as well so I thought a french theme with a lot of white, pale pink (its a girl!), and greenery would be perfect! As I always do with events like this, Pinterest is […]
