As you now know, we’re major nerds at our house. Our house is filled with Star Wars props, art work & toys. I mean, we go to Comic-Con every year and I even cosplay for it. Last night I was wide awake at 2 AM and stumbled upon something truly magical… Pottery Barn now has both Star Wars & Harry Potter themed home decor! Ok, so it’s actually PB Teen, but their home decor is totally made for the true fan within. Continue Reading
Hey girl heyyyyy! Who tuned into my Forever 21 Haul on IG Live?? I’ve been making an effort to use IG live lately, but need to get better about scheduling. Saturday Tony was out of town camping, so I did what any girl would do… went shopping! As you know, I’m all about a good deal. There are tons of “blogger style” pieces that I love, but can’t really justify spending money on. No offense to people who do buy high priced items, it’s just not in my comfort zone. So when I find knockoffs at Forever 21, I feel like totally hit the jackpot. Continue Reading
I’m a planner. Before I go on any trip, I write myself to-do lists, checklists, packing lists, shopping lists and so on. The same applies for a road trip. Road Trips are a great way to get out and explore. But what the hell do you need to bring? Tony and I are planning a trip to Palm Springs, which got me thinking about creating a Road Trip Essentials list. Whether you’re driving for 5 hours or 5 days, there are a few things that you should definitely bring with you to minimize stops and save money along the way. Continue Reading
I haven’t always been athletic. I was literally the worlds worst volleyball player and could barely dribble the basketball in PE. I grew up doing gymnastics and later joined the diving team in high school, but was never much of a runner or fan of “working out”. It wasn’t until my early 20s that I actually started enjoying going to the gym. It’s my “me time”. Not only does it help keep my anxiety in check, it makes me feel good. But that’s not to say it’s always easy to stay motivated or stay active. Continue Reading
I get a ton of questions about how I do my hair – and to be honest, I’m pretty lazy! TBH, I only wash my hair like once a week. I live off of dry conditioner and messy ponytails. A lot of the time I do wear it down though. My hair used to be super long & I recently went a little shorter. But my styling tactics have basically stayed the same. I like messy, beachy boho waves. I don’t like overly styled ringlets or using heaps of product. The best part about my little “hair tutorial” is that I use a straightener! That’s right, you only need one tool to get a ton of different styles! Continue Reading
Feeling boujie, but stuck on a budget? Have no fear, the deals are here. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is one of the best ways to stock up on items. It’s their biggest sale of the year where they offer great discounts on new merchandise! If you missed my first post, you can learn all about the #NSALE and my favorite items HERE. Continue Reading
I promised an APMAs recap, and you’re gonna get an APMAs recap! When I think Cleveland, I don’t necessarily think glitz & glam. But it totally makes sense that Alternative Press Magazine would hold their annual awards show in the city that is home to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame!
I was so excited when I heard that Tony & his band Pierce the Veilwere not only playing the awards show, but also nominated for a few awards! I was equally excited when I found out that all of the ladies of PTV would be going! I love a good excuse to get dressed up and hang with the girls! It’s also a ton of fun getting to reconnect with old friends and people who you don’t get to see unless a tour rolls through town! Continue Reading
So WTF is Amazon Prime Day? You guys know I basically live off of Amazon Prime. If I run out of coffee, I can get free same day delivery on my Nespresso Pods, they have tons of cute & affordable clothes, I can stock up on makeup and beauty products and even have toilet paper delivered automatically. You think I’m joking about that last one… nope, I can always count on Amazon to deliver those important items in under 2 days.
So what exactly is Amazon Prime Day? Once a year… on July 10th this year at 6 PM PT (9 PM ET) Prime Day is a one-day only world-wide sale exclusively for Prime members. Amazon has a Prime Day landing page, but it’s only show a tiny fraction of all the deals. You might also think that the deals themselves are all that you can save, but there are tons more. AND, there are ways to save more money on top of the deals. If you aren’t somewhat prepared for the sale, you’re going to be overwhelmed. So, I’m giving some of my top tips & picks for shopping the sale. Continue Reading
We’ve all been there. Hell, I’m still there. It’s summer, which means everyone is out in full force spending money. Everything from cute new outfits, vacations, concerts, cocktails, road trips & restaurants. It all adds up! To make matters worse, every time you pull up your Instagram feed it seems like all everyone posts about is the money they’re spending and the crazy lavish summers they’re having. So, how do you live large like a Blogger Babe on a Budget? Continue Reading
Alright, let’s talk about the most dreaded time of year: swimsuit season. Does anyone else cringe at the idea of having to find swimsuits? There’s nothing worse than going to the mall and trying swimsuits on in fluorescent lit rooms. This year, I switched things up a bit and did all of my shopping online. I found a handful of suits that I liked and had them sent to my house. Then, I waited until a morning when I was feeling good and in a peppy mood and tried them on in my own room, with my own lighting & mirrors. Literally a game changer. The best part? I just popped the ones I didn’t like back in the mail and returned them! I’ve gotta say, I’m down for the One Piece trend. Please, never go out of style! Continue Reading
