You know that feeling when you’re totally down to do XYZ with your friends, but you just don’t feel like picking out an outfit or getting dressed at all? I know I do. And with such an outfit-focused past few days while here in NY for all the fashion festivities, I’ve felt that like 102 times. By Sunday – after being here since Wednesday – I needed a little break and was thankful that this whole wearing-pajamas-thing is socially acceptable.…

[NOTE: Sorry to disappear on y’all last week. After getting back late Sunday night from Fiji and catching up on all that was going on with hurricane Harvey, I took some time away from the internet and social media to help and check on friends. Plus, it just didn’t seem right to continue business as usual with everything going on. I’m still brainstorming and figuring out ways to help (I know from living in Louisiana that this will be a long road and…



How To Perfect Your Pout

Who doesn’t want super kissable lips? I don’t know about y’all, but in the winter months (and summer too!) my lips are just a disaster – they get dried out and crack so easily. I’ve never been one to take care of my lips (ha that sounds funny), but I’ve been doing little things to make an effort lately and it’s been making a difference for me! So I thought I’d share with y’all and dedicate a blog post to…
