I’m back from a short holiday hiatus ready & refreshed to create some great content for you this year! But before we get into that, let’s rewind & remember some of the best posts of 2017. Make sure you leave a comment below to tell me which post was your favorite last year, & what you want to see more of this year! Enjoy this little walk down memory lane!
I’m just thrilled to announce that I am officially a Glossier Rep!
I have been a long time lover of this brand & it’s products as well as their philosophy of loving the skin you’re in. Their skincare is just divine…so rich & luxurious while still being reasonably priced! It’s affordable & aesthetically pleasing…what more could you want?! (lol)
So let’s just get to it!
Being a rep means that you can order products directly through me. When shopping with me, you will receive 10% off your first order, as well as free shipping for orders over $30! Great deal, huh?!
My page features all of my top picks! See what products I have been loving & grab some for yourself. Or as I’ve mentioned before, stock up on balm dotcoms in every flavor! They are amazing & make perfect gifts & stocking stuffers. (Yes, it’s that time already!)
How is it already almost July?! June just flew by!
I always think of the 4th as such a family holiday. My family always gathers together to attend the same fireworks show in Edmond, OK, & this year is no exception. My sisters & I love getting dressed in our patriotic red, white, & blue outfits, taking fun pictures together, & after dark, watching the magical display unfold in the sky.
Seeing as though the 4th of July is next week, I’ve started my search for some festive red, white, & blue items to wear, & have compiled some of my favorites below. My holiday plans are rather casual, but I’ve made sure to include outfit inspo for any occasion.

Today I can finally say that this will be my last post from NYC. It was one of those trips where I just felt like I was home. So in love with this city.
On my first full day off after the tour, Eri & I got asked if we wanted comp tickets to see ABT’s opening night of Don Quixote, & of course we said, “Yes!” It was truly magical. I was pumped to see one of my childhood favorites, Gillian Murphy, perform the role of Kitri. She was dynamite! Not to mention the music by Minkus is to die for! I left feeling so inspired by her performance. If you have never seen Don Quixote before, (heck, if you’ve never seen a ballet before) I highly recommend this classical masterpiece. Definitely one of my all time favorites.
Not only was the performance magical, but my dress was certainly magical as well.
I felt so glamorous in this Marchesa Notte embroidered dress paired with these amazing sky blue heels (which are quickly becoming my new favorites). Our hair was freshly done courtesy of DryBar (more on that here) so you know we were confidently power walking those West Side streets.
After watching an incredible show, and snapping a few pics by the ballerina hippo currently displayed across the street from Lincoln Square, we walked over to The Smith (more here) for a scrumptious meal and refreshing cocktails while we relived (and critiqued) the entire performance. It was a perfect way to end a perfect day.
P. S. – I am officially back in the States! Stay tuned for my posts from Africa & Paris! (& a giveaway!)
Social Distancing: Take Barre At Home With The Richmond Ballet Company Dancers
I got my very first blowout while playing in New York after my Joyce Tour was finished. It was amazing to say the least. DryBar products just smell divine and my hair still looked good the next day. Win!
There are several DryBar locations around Manhattan, but I went to the Flatiron location out of convenience. Here’s the scoop: they only do blowouts! No cuts, no color, just blowouts. It was really cool. I walked in for my appointment and they took me to my chair where there was a catalog of all the styles to choose from. I chose the Cosmo-Tai, which is basically a cross between ringlet curls and beachy waves. When it was finished, the curls seemed very tight, and I was a little worried because I felt like it looked like how I did my hair in high-school! But once I shook it out (and with a little help with the wind) it looked so effortlessly glamorous.
I can’t wait to share with you guys all the amazing things we are doing here, but until then, I have another exciting tidbit to share:
My NYC Vlog!
This video was taken during the last two days of my trip. My friend, Eri, and I stayed in the cutest little Airbnb (right next to the original Shake Shack I might add) and ventured all over the city. In this video, you’ll see bits of our blowouts at DryBar, shopping in SoHo (including a visit to the Glossier Showroom), music and dancing in Washington Square Park, our evening at the Metropolitan Opera House to see ABT perform, tea time at Alice’s Tea Cup, meandering through Central Park, and finally seeing the Brooklyn Bridge for the first time.
I hope you guys are enjoying these vlogs. Let me know in the comments below if you want to see more.
After you watch this video (and give it a thumbs up *wink*), shop some new finds in this week’s Lust List!
