I consider myself a relatively chill person. I like things, I don't like things, but my emotions usually stay between the ranges of 4-7 on a scale of 1-10 (1 being V CRAZY/SAD and 10 being V HAPPY/EXCITED) I just kind of float somewhere in the middle on pretty much everything.
There are however, a FEW exceptions, because ONCE in a blue moon when I find something I like maybe a TAD more than my usually appreciation, I like, REALLYYYYY like it, almost...CLICK TO READ MORE!

There are few things that excite me more than a cute, affordable set so I'm linking 15 sets under $50 for you gals today. Sets, also known as co-ords (which is just like a fancy abbreviation for coordinates) are V trendy right now. A few years ago I wouldn't dare pair the same printed top and bottom, but these days, the more your pieces...CLICK TO READ MORE!

It's like when your best friend starts dating a guy who owns a boat and even though you're not actually part of the relationship, within 10 minutes of your friend Jules telling you if's officially OFFICIAL with Brian with the Boat, you're already filling in your billing address on Asos' confirmation page for three...CLICK TO READ MORE!

Gingham had a real break through this past Summer (obvi I wrote about it here in case you missed it) and I thought the trend would pass, but much to my surprise of excitement that it didn't, Gingham is very much the print of Spring 2018 ya'll. How do I know this? I walked into a store. Literally, doesn't matter which one, I went...CLICK TO READ MORE!

I have been torn on whether I wanted to do a gift guide for Valentines Day or not. Mostly because my boyfriend and I don't really exchange Vday gifts and it's too soon for me to be gunnin' for a ring from him, unless it's like a NuvaRing, which I would actually find super thoughtful.
I DO, however, appreciate a good Galentines Day gift because while I love my boyfriend, my girls...CLICK TO READ MORE!

I'm a pretty basic girl. I like to keep my life relatively simple like most gals and stick to the basic daily pleasures of brunch, judging Bachelor contestants and dodging Rodan + Fields DM's. My day to day look is usually jeans and a plain tank, crop or tee in a neutral shade and my "getting ready" routine consists of brushing my teeth, Burts Bees and keeping dry shampoo a booming industry.
There are however, moments in life where I decide to get a little wild and jazz up my normal look (with minimal effort of course) and one of the easiest ways to do that is to play around with your denim game....CLICK TO READ MORE!

I've always liked Etsy but when I think of Etsy I think of bachelorette party t-shirts or monogrammed sh*t, neither of which I'm a fan of. Recently I've been trying to explore the site more and I've fallin' in LOVE with a few shops that offer me way more than just a banner that says "Drink Up Betches".
From custom jewelry, to vintage shades...

It's Christmas time betches and instead of doing another blogger gift guide filled with basic scarfs, lotions and candles *sticks fork in electric outlet*, I decided to do a shades specific gift guide for you to treat anyone on your nice list or if you just want to use some of your Christmas money on the one who matter most this season: you (and Jesus of course)....CLICK TO READ MORE!

This year when you walk into your holiday party expect to see at least half of the crowd wearing velvet. This trend is everywhere this holiday season and 13 year old Juicy track suit wearing me is thrilled. Don't worry though, just because everyone will be wearing velvet doesn't mean you shouldn't, it just means you should wear it better and I'm here to help... CLICK TO READ MORE!

I'm starting to have intimate feelings towards jackets, similar to how Carrie Bradshaw feels about shoes, I feel this way towards coats. When I asked my boyfriend what his favorite thing about his coats were he literally replied with one word: "warm" and while I can't disagree with that, I have to say my relationship with them is so much more than that....CLICK TO READ MORE!

I've been seeing stripped pants EVERYWHERE this season and I'm obsessed with them. I think this may actually be my favorite fall trend and I'm usually not one to play favorites, but since you asked, here's some of my favorite things...CLICK TO READ MORE!

Hats are having a major moment right now and I'm okay with it. Literally these days you can put anything on your head and someone will think its trendy. I literally wore a little boys bucket hat with pineapples all over it last weekend to a themed party and someone at the store I stopped in...CLICK TO READ MORE!

This Fall, please don't talk business with me until I'm wearing my grey oversized plaid blazer. That means if you need to tell me about your f*cking man problems and expect a well thought out proposed solution strong enough to make him even remotely interested in taking you to his company holiday party, don't even speak a word of no texts back until I'm shoulders to knee decked out in shades of grey plaid or....CLICK TO READ MORE!
