    Hooks Creek Lake

    I’m generally not a lake person – mostly because I haven’t been to many. I’ve lived less than an hour from the beach my whole life so my summers have always been about going to the beach or hanging out at someone’s pool. A few weeks ago my friend and I were planning to spend the afternoon at a reservoir about 30 minutes away. I haven’t been to that reservoir in years. I used to go there to go fishing with my dad and brother when I was young. Anyway, before we headed out we saw a notification that the reservoir was at capacity and not accepting any more visitors…

    The Styled Collection Bracelet Stack

    For years I’ve loved the Cartier Love Bracelet, but I’m not exactly in the position to spend a few thousand dollars on a bracelet. I’ve also loved the look of David Yurman bracelets, but again don’t want to spend a few hundred on a bracelet. In recent months I saw the growing popularity of jewelry brand, The Styled Collection, that sells reasonably priced jewelry with many of the pieces being dupes for the (much) more expensive and higher-end favorites. In the past couple months I have placed a few orders with the company and have had really good experiences with them! I have created a little bracelet stack for myself…

    3 Hard But Important Health Changes To Make

    Being healthy can often seem like a lot of hassle and not much reward. If you find that you often feel this way, it might be that you are just not looking at it with a long enough perspective. Over time, you are absolutely making a positive difference to your life by being healthy, and you will feel that in how you feel emotionally and physically, and in how much energy you have and so on. But you might get so used to it that you forget how good it feels, and so you start to delve into bad health practices again as a subtle way to remember where you…

    Floral Eyelet Button-Down

    Before I get in to this top, I just want to preface this post by saying that I never know whether to call it a button-up or button-down. What do you guys call it? I saw this sweet top at Forever 21 when I was shopping with my cousins in Georgia back in April and I was immediately drawn to it. The delicate eyelet detailing and sweet floral print were the perfect combination for me. It is cropped and has a boxy look to it and although you’d think that would mean it would have an oversized look, I actually sized up 2! I normally wear a small at Forever…

    The Best Ways To Protect Your Phone While Traveling

    Image We all have certain things we can’t go on vacation without. However, a device that almost all travelers choose to pack is a smartphone.

    Tulip Tie Back Tee

    I love tulip back tops because the crossover detailing is always so cute. This light pink tee has a tulip back, but also ties at the bottom for an extra detail. I’ve been noticing more tops that tie in the back like this lately, especially casual/loungewear/work out tops. Top: J.Crew | Shorts: American Rag via Macy’s | Sandals: Target | Bracelet: Express I paired this tulip tie back tee with floral shorts, teal sandals, and a pretty overlapping wrap bracelet with a turn-lock closure. I love floral shorts and these go with so many different color tops since the dark floral is sort of subtle and easy to pair with…

    Keanu Reeves – Binge Watch

    I’ve been on summer break from work for 2 weeks now and while these past 2 weeks have been pretty busy (mainly with lots of appointments that I didn’t have time for during the school year) I have started to have some time to just watch tv and not do anything. In the past 4 days I have had an unintentional (or maybe intentional) Keanu Reeves marathon. I watched John Wick and John Wick Chapter 2 and all 3 Matrix movies. This led me to want to write a post about how much I love Keanu Reeves! So I haven’t seen all his movies, but I’ve seen a good amount. I’ve…
