Kimono- Brandy Melville / Sunnies - Celine / Bag +Boots + iPad Case - Frye / Top - Zara/ Shorts- H&M 
I'm very excited to share with you how I styled the pieces that I won from the Lookbook x The Frye Company Instagram contest! On 5/15 I went to the Lookbook Spring Style party held at the Frye store in Chicago. Before getting there, I had received a DM on Instagram saying that I had won a pair of shoes, accessories and a styling session with one of their profiled bloggers. My jaw fell to the floor and I was on a serious high. Fast forward to the event...it was great! Not gonna' lie, it was my first blogger event so I was a bit nervous but I'm so happy I went because I was able to vibe and chat with fellow bloggers while sippin' on some delicious cocktails. My stylist for the night was Jessie from Mini Penny and she was the absolute bomb.com. She helped me pick out some stellar pieces, gave me some of her personal tips + tricks and talked about our favorite joints in the city. You can check out some of the photos from the party here.
Thank you so much to Lookbook.nu and The Frye Company for such a fantastic event and phenomenal goodies I got to take home. I also started using the lookbook platform again, so you can check out my profile here
Check out the photos below and let me know what you think!
I also did a video for this post (which I'm quite proud of)...so don't forget to check that out too!




Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You

Thursday, June 19, 2014

This past weekend, I headed out to the Old Town Art Festival with some of my favorite people! I always struggle with what to wear in hotter days, and with festival season in full swing...well...it gets me anxious. I decided to rock this super cool baby blue eye-print dress that I scored at Zara a couple months ago. I fell in love with it for obvious reasons (I have an eye tattoo in on the back of my neck, so yes, for very obvious reasons) and became obsessed with the material - scuba material, that is. (It's 95% polyester and 5% elastane, if we want to get technical here) Thankfully I didn't spill my drink on this gem of a dress because sangria sippin' can get dangerous. Also, the turtleneck wasn't as bad as I thought it would be and I received so many comments from this lil' getup. This dress is a winner! 



Traverse City Diary // Part 3

Tuesday, June 17, 2014

Oh, hi, hello - you've made it to my third and final post of my trip to Traverse City. In our relaxed state, we wanted to be super low key as we had a 6ish hour drive ahead of us that same day. We got amazing brunch at this quaint little French place in the downtown area called Patisserie Amie. Fresh food, my love and a cup of jo had me on cloud nine. We chose to walk around and then...

Traverse City Diary // Part 2

Monday, June 16, 2014

On the second day of our quick trip, we only had to expectations for the day: 1) stay outdoors and 2) have a picnic.  We did just that. We started off with some breakfast at The Towne Plaza. It was pretty yummy and sitting outside on a patio is always a plus. While we were grubbin', the weather was pretty gloomy but still warm, but even though we were confused on what to do and what to wear, we headed over to the bay area. We rented out our bikes for a couple of hours and...

Traverse City Diary // Part 1

Thursday, June 05, 2014

About a week ago my gf and I did a nice little road-trip getaway for the Memorial Day Weekend. It was a very spur of the moment situation - we thought we were riding off to Wisconsin, then potentially flying to Colorado but ended up gracing the road on our way to Traverse City, Michigan. Lisa had me at, "quaint little area with cute places to eat + shop and beautiful scenery" ... sold. I will say we didn't anticipate the drive would be as long as it was, but the journey to our destination was just as fun. We made a pit stop in Three Oaks, Mi. to the Journey Man Distillery where we...

Lime Crime Collection

Monday, May 12, 2014

Hiya! I just posted a new video on my channel showcasing my current Lime Crime collection and you can check that baby out below! I am completely in love with the Velvetines formula (colors at the end of the vid) and the general unique smooth & opaque application you get from all of their lipsticks. Some of them are not as "wearable"...but who cares, use them whenever you want and live it up in these funky fresh lipsticks. You can buy the products from my video on their website here.
Let me know if you'd like to see more videos like this one!

Pressed Juicery's 3-Day Cleanse // My Experience

Monday, March 03, 2014

You may or may not know that I recently ended a 3-day juice cleanse earlier this week. I entered the #TCMlovestory contest on The Chalkboard Mag site and won 2 sets of Pressed Juicery's 3-day cleanse (one for me and one for Lisa).
I felt so energized and great but it definitely tested my will-power and made me look internally on how I wanted to carry through a generally healthier lifestyle. Cliche, but...
