If you watch You Tube beauty videos, read any beauty blogs or have just happened to walk into a Sephora over the past few days, then when I mention Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop, you know what I’m talking about, right? Even if you don’t, I’m here to tell you – it is freakin’ awesome! I love my drugstore beauty finds, but this high end product by far has been worth every cent.


{Shopping} Nordstrom Anniversary Sale










A little bird may have told you that something called the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale might be going on right now. What is this sale you say? Well friends, if you like Nordstrom Rack and awesome pieces at discounted prices, than this sale is for you! Even if you’re not a regular Nordstrom Shopper (confession – I’m not), this is the time of year to give them a look for amazingly discounted prices on quality items; prices you won’t find any other time of year or during any other their other sales.


{Style} Flowers and the Kimono
























“Oh don’t you dare look back, just keep your eyes on me. I said you’re holding back. She said ‘just shut up and dance with me’…”  A very interesting way to start out a post. I can’t help it though. These words are part of the lyrics from one of my favorite songs lately called “Shut Up and Dance With Me” by Walk the Moon. This particular song just happens to be stuck in my head as I type this.



Friday Favorites vol. 8














Happy Fri-Yay! Hope you’ve had a good week and are ready for the weekend! It’s been a week….I mean a week! Aren’t we all always happy when Friday rolls around, yes? I can’t complain though; I like being busy. Busy weeks aside, I always try and find time to do a little web surfing!

Embarking on “new adventures”, putting a new meaning to the word “contouring”, tropical wedding adventures, proving you can be uber chic and stylish no matter what your size and birthday shenanigans. This sums up what caught my eye on the web this week…..


1. Hallie’s new adventure and her “good bye” to NYC….

2. Jessica’s  “next chapter”…..

3. THIS……all I can say it Whoa!!!

4. A little blogging challenge, run my one of my best blogging buddies, Elembee, that I’ve decided to do!

5. I am one who has always dreamed on going on a fabulous dream tropical vacaction someday. So, naturally, I’ve been obsessed over flowing Kim’s wedding adventures in Maui!

6. LOVE Kristina’s new site redesign! I’ve been meaning to (and have been proscrastinating) on doing a major redesign for my site as well. Stay tuned….

7. To say Sarah is fantastic and I love her to pieces is a major understatement. Love her in this fabulous look book shoot she did recently for Eloquii! Rock on girl!

8. Also, I celebrated my 33rd birthday last week….a little peak into my shenanigans here!


This weekend I’m going to be attending my very first Drillers MLB game since moving to Tulsa in 2009. In case you were wondering, I’m huge baseball fan! Aside from that, I think it looks to be a low-key weekend. A little tiding up and cleaning around the apartment, a little Netlfix marathon or two and a little wine. Not too bad as far as weekend plans go I think.

What are your weekend plans?

33 Years Young














So, this past Memorial Day weekend, May 26th to be exact, I celebrated my 33rd year on this earth. My past few birthdays I haven’t really celebrated all that much. This is strange for me, as I’m “one of those people” who loves celebrating birthdays and going all out. I’ve been through a lot in my life these past few years, but thankfully, this year I have a lot to be thankful for and I decided to celebrate!


Wednesday Wisdom: Just Keep Blooming

WW post




















This seriously should be my life mantra. Wise, wise words. If I’m being completely honest here, I’ve compared myself to others for as long as I can remember; it’s a personal flaw I’ve been “working on” most of my life. It’s hard sometimes to see the successes of others and not think to yourself – “If I had made different decisions, would I have the same successes…..what are they doing that I haven’t done…..why does it seem that my successes never seem to compare to theirs?”
