New Haircut!


For those of you who don’t follow me on my social media outlets then you haven’t heard! I chopped my hair off! A whole lot of it. I cut off about 10 inches and I have been loving it so far. I didn’t realize how attached I had become to my hair until I was sitting in the chair watching those scissors come toward me. I was actually terrified and started second guessing what I was doing. But then I told myself it is just hair and if I hate it, it’ll grow back. The second she cut it off I couldn’t stop smiling. It was crazy! I was grinning ear to ear the whole time. I honestly think this hair suits me much more. It fits my face and body shape more and it is a lot more fun. My hair had gotten so long that I didn’t ever want to style it. It was so heavy and to be honest, a nuisance. Now I feel much more fresh and I appreciate my hair much more. If you can tell, I went much lighter because all the blonde in my hair was cut off. Do you guys like my new do? Let me know in the comments!


Be Inspired // #10

Hey guys! Today’s words of inspiration are some of my favorites. I have recently decided to quit being such a procrastinator and just get things done. I read the book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up and it has changed me! I started with my clothes, then moved on to our books, documents etc. If you follow me on my YouTube channel you have probably seen some of my makeup declutter videos. So the thing I never thought would happen (which in the book it actually says will), is that after decluttering my things, I have noticed so many other changes in my life. I still haven’t finished decluttering everything yet. It is a long process! But what I have noticed is that I cherish things more. I take my time getting ready for bed at night. I floss more. I fold my clothes (which I never used to do). I clean my dishes right after using them. I get more done. With less clutter around me, my mind is more at peace and it truly helps me get more accomplished throughout the day. I usually am trying to play catch up with my YouTube videos. But I am so ahead of my upload schedule I don’t know what to do! It is awesome. I feel like I have more time, and my time is valued. I highly recommend you guys read this book! It is super easy to ready and it’s pretty short. Even though it is a little odd at times, the overall message is really effective. Have any of you read it? I hope you all have a great week!

Fall Inspo

Time for some fall inspiration! I am loving that it has been a little cloudy lately, but it is still hot. This summer has been unreal. Anyone else? Don’t get my wrong, I love the summer and warm weather, but when it is over 100 degrees for a whole month I’m not a happy camper! You know how they say the sun makes you in a good mood? I think it’s the opposite for me. Overcast skies are heaven on earth. Probably because it is rare here haha. Seattle I miss you! Okay anyways, enough about the weather, let’s talk fashion. So what I love about fall is the colors. Warm, earthy tones are my favorite this time of year. Navy, camel, olive and burgundy are some of my favorites. I also like sticking to basics in the fall. Start with a pair of distressed jeans, add in a basic tee and then start adding layers. A cute cardigan, hat and booties will make you look instantly chic. What are you all most excited for this fall? P.S. I actually got a hot chai latte the other day and it was bomb! I’m not quite ready for pumpkin yet!

End of Summer

Happy Monday! I wanted to share a look I wore this past Friday out to dinner with Andrew. This summer has been very long and very hot. Today is the first day I haven’t had to turn the AC on at 9:00 am. It has been brutal to say the least. So considering it was still pretty toasty last Friday, I threw on this maxi dress because 1. it is super comfortable and 2. it is only one thin layer of clothing. I paired it with a pair of studded flats and crossbody bag for an effortless feel. I hope you all have been having a great summer. I am soooo ready for fall. Scented candles, sweaters and hot tea are calling my name!

Skincare Obsessed: #GetRadical

Hey guys! Long time no talk! Today I have a skincare review on the company Radical Skincare. I have been using three of their products for about two months now and wanted to give you the low down on each of them. Their products are paraben, phthalate and sulfate free. I have pretty sensitive skin, especially with anti-aging products, and these have not made me break out at all! This makes me super excited because I REALLY want to start upping my anti-aging game but most are super rich and break me out. I also just posted my evening skincare routine on my YouTube channel so you can watch that HERE.


1. Instant Revitalizing Mask: My new love. This is seriously the coolest mask I have ever tried. And I have tried a lot of masks. So you apply it to the skin and it looks like a serum. Once you start rubbing it in it turns into more of a white paste. THEN, it starts foaming around the areas that need extra help on your skin. I find that it foams a lot by my nose, forehead (hello forehead lines that I’m not such a fan of!), and also my chin. Basically most people’s trouble areas. After washing off, my skin looks much brighter than before and it feels firmer and super hydrated. You will honestly glow afterward. Two thumbs up! If you want to watch it in action, check out my skincare video.Radical Skincare

2. Age-Defying Pads: These little suckers are super effective. They are pads that you apply after cleansing the skin. Just like the mask, you will notice your skin instantly looks much brighter. I only use these every few days because they are full of AHA and BHA acid, making them pretty potent. They help support natural cell turnover, which slows down the aging process. If you are looking to tighten and firm your skin, and minimize the look of your pores and fine lines, these pads are for you!!!

3. Youth Infusion Serum: Last but not least, is this little but mighty serum. This serum is ultra hydrating and really does a great job and rejuvenating the skin. It leaves your skin looking brighter, smoother and gives a youthful glow to the skin. There is algae extract inside which tightens the appearance of skin, protects from oxidative stress, along with antioxidants and skin soothing agents to deeply hydrate, reduces redness, and calm inflammation. I mean…basically everything you want in one product.

Radical Skincare

Overall, I have been super impressed with the few products I have tried out so far. If you have been on the fence for this line I would definitely suggest trying it out for yourself. Each product has really brightened up my complexion and smoothed out my skin. Let me know if you have tried any other products from this company! Thanks for stopping by and have an awesome day!

Romper Life

Happy Tuesday! Today I have an outfit to share that is perfect for summer. I’m slightly obsessed with rompers. Does anyone else feel like a child when they wear them? Haha..they are so comfy it’s awesome. This romper is from Fashion Nova, and I love the details on it. The brown leather straps and white embroidery make it really unique. I love adding wedges to either a romper or sundress because they are still extremely comfortable but make the outfit more dressed up. But when I am doing something more low key I’ll just wear flip flops or some sandals. And like always I’m wearing a gold watch and lots of beaded bracelets. I get a lot of questions where I get them from and they are all from different brands so it’s hard to say sometimes. But in general, if I see beaded bracelets, I’m down!

Bedroom Mood Board

bedroom decor



All we have in our bedroom currently is a linen tufted bed, teal tufted settee (we had it custom upholstered, but the one above is similar) and mismatched bedside tables. I wanted to put together some decor ideas that I’ve been really into lately. If you guys have seen any of our home vlogs, you have seen our bedroom/closet layout. I want to put a rug like the one above in the closet space to make it look more like a closet and make it look like it’s own room. I also want to put that oval ottoman in the middle of it so we can use it as seating and fill out the room more. For the wall opposite our bed, we have our settee there now. I want to put a gold floor length mirror next to it that leans against the wall along with a little side table. The black chests in the photo are what I’m thinking of for our bedside tables. Our room is pretty big and our current tables look really tiny. I also like the idea of having all that extra storage space. As far as style goes, I want our room to be soft and romantic, but with some moroccan and rustic elements to keep it from looking too stuffy. Let me know what you guys think! I’ll have an update video on my channel soon of our bedroom.

(Some online sites I love are One Kings Lane, Joss & Main & Wayfair!)

Be Inspired // #9



Like always, the quotes I post tend to have a common theme. Lately I have been a lot more into work and getting both ahead and doing more than I had done before. Sometimes we…meaning I…get complacent with where we are and start to do the same things over and over. Before we know it, we look back and wonder what we had done with our time and wished we had accomplished more. Complacency is something that is so easy to succumb to because it is easy. It doesn’t take much effort to do something that you have done a million times before. I’m now trying to challenge myself in all that I do. Even with the simple tasks of daily life. Why do something with 50% off your effort, when you could be putting your all into it and end up completely happier afterwards? Especially in work, I am trying to make improvements in everything I’m doing. Change things up, try new things and if they don’t work then no big deal. Nothing stays consistent forever unless we make it that way. We have the ability to improve what we are doing if we have the right mind set. If any of you have been feeling like you need a change, ask yourself where in life that is. Your relationship? Your job? Especially in relationships, try hard not to get stuck in the same routine every day. I feel like I know my husband so well now, and don’t always need to say how much he means to me because I just assume he knows it. Don’t assume it! Always let someone know how you feel, especially when it’s something good. We are quick to say what bothers us, but hold back what we love and appreciate. I hope you are having a great week so far, and I hope you know how much you all mean to me. Thanks for always being there and supporting me. You guys are the ones who bring ME so much encouragement in my life. Talk soon!

Paint It White!

Hey guys! So today I wanted to show you the magic of paint. White paint specifically. When we moved into our new home, all the windows were trimmed out, which I definitely think adds a lot of character. However, the trim was a dark stained wood. A little 80’s for my taste. I really want our home to have a very airy and spacious feel, so painting all the trim white was first on my list of to do’s. I headed to Home Depot and picked up some blue tape, paint, and a paint brush and was on my way! And don’t think that you have to be an expert to do this. I did this on my own and I honestly rarely paint anything. The one downside was I didn’t really do…any…sanding to the wood which hurt me in the end. I know I know so dumb. I actually did buy something to sand it, but it was totally the wrong thing. I should have just gotten regular sand paper, but the lady working there recommended something that I found out later was for sanding once you are done painting. Awesome. So I just had to do a lot more coats. It honestly was around 4 coats of paint, which sounds ridiculous to me now, but I didn’t really care at the time. We did buy normal sand paper for the linen cabinets, so I ended up using less paint for those. I’m learning! You will see brown blinds that were on all the windows at first. I took those down as well! I added curtains to the main window, and I’ll add roman shades to the side bay window soon.

What I used:

Behr Swiss Coffee in Eggshell finish for the trim.

Behr Swiss Coffee in Semi Gloss finish for the cabinets.

I have a bunch of pictures in different lighting to give you a better idea of what it looks like. The crazy thing is, everything just blends in now. All the trim matches the baseboards and really opens up the room so much more. Before, you would just stare at the wood trim because it didn’t really match.

BEFOREDURINGKeep in mind, this took me manyyyy hours to finish! The endless coats were super annoying, but I’m so happy with how it turned out!




Ignore the stickers on the windows, we are getting new ones installed in a few weeks, so that will really update the space as well, and keep our house a lot cooler!



For the cabinets, we took them off the hinges and painted them in our garage. We put tape around the hinges while painting, but are considering replacing those. It’s much easier painting the doors with two people so one can hold them while the other paints. Also, we used a cabinet roller, and did detail work with a brush. Once we had two coats on Andrew attached them back on and I added about one more coat with a brush. On the top of the lower cabinet, we added two little pieces of molding we found at Home Depot to make them look more finished. Andrew attached it with glue. See how magical paint can be?

Summer Ready

Hey guys! How have you been? I swear I will start to post on here more often! Believe it or not, I am still organizing stuff. It is endless! But I do love organizing… I have some home updates coming soon for you as well. I did a few home updates on my YouTube channel, but I have some more detailed pictures that I’ll post here next week.

Today I have a super laid back look for you. It has been super hot here lately and I have been living in shorts. I just got this dreamcatcher top, and love the wide cut of it. It makes it really flowy and comfortable. (I’m semi obsessed with graphic tees…) I also love wearing kimonos for hot summer nights. They add a light layer if it’s breezy outside, but allow your skin to still breath.
