Say Yes to the Slip Dress

Saturday, November 12, 2016







Slip Dress - Uniqlo | Turtleneck - Zara | Coat - Zara | Boots (Similar)- Zara | Lip Color - Colourpop

Slip dresses have been my favorite trend over the past couple of seasons. If you thought they were only a summer trend, think again! You can easily layer your slip dresses over simple shirts like a t-shirt, mock neck shirt, or a turtleneck, like in this look. Keep your slip dresses near the front of your closet all year round with this simple trick. Every undershirt you pair with a slip dress will turn it into a whole new look, so go ahead and experiment. Have fun with this trend because I think it's going to be around for a while.

Date Night

Saturday, November 5, 2016







Co-Ord - BooHoo | Shoes - Zara

Hey guys! Oh boy, this outfit has me wanting to do a whole date night lookbook. I think if you're in an outfit rut, find yourself a cute co-ord set to wear. It's easy to throw on a co-ord since you don't really have to think too hard about what you need to pair with it. This tube top body con  dress paired with its matching duster jacket is literally a match made in "fashion heaven". I loved how this dress gave me the appearance of having curves (finally!) and the jacket allowed for a bit of modesty in the arm department. I paired these chunky single strap heels from Zara with it to elongate my body and accentuate my legs. Love it!

What is your go to glam date night outfit?

Road Trippin' Since '93

Monday, October 31, 2016






Shirt - Zara | Jeans - PacSun | Shoes - Forever 21 | Watch - The Fifth Watches

Hey guys! I'm keeping this one short and sweet. This was one of my favorite quick looks that I threw together this past summer. Pairing some heels with a nice oversized graphic tee and boyfriend jeans added a little edge to this outfit. I opted for a dark brown liquid lipstick to finish off this look (mine is in the color Limbo from ColourPop). Right after shooting this look, my hair went straight up into a ponytail because it was about 90 degrees this day! Peep the ponytail holder in it's permanent spot on my wrist.

I'm super missing summer right now, but I'm kind of enjoying this low 70s weather we have going on right now.

Until the next one,

Tips for Clear Skin ft. Clarisonic

Friday, October 14, 2016


Hey ladies! Have you been wondering how to get your skin out of the funk it’s been in? Well, you’ve come to the right place! Today I’m going to share a few of my best tips for clear skin.

Tip #1: Take off your makeup every night.
Admittedly, I don’t always adhere to this tip but it is one that needs to be strictly followed. If you’re feeling too lazy or have already gotten comfortable in bed, just keep a pack of face wipes by your bedside. It’s a lot easier to reach over to your nightstand and grab a wipe than it is to walk all the way into the bathroom to do a whole routine. My favorite wipes are the Simple Skincare Micellar Makeup Remover Wipes. These wipes remove all of my makeup and doesn’t leave a residue on my skin. I love them! 
 
Clarisonic Mia 2
Tip #2: Use a face brush.
This is a step that I don’t skip. I definitely attribute my clear skin to the use of my Clarisonic. I’m currently using the Clarisonic Mia 2 Deep Pore set daily. Clarisonic devices cleanse the face six times better than hands alone, and are gentle enough to use twice a day! This particular device has two speeds and is great for any skin type. The Mia 2 gently cleanses your skin and removes all of the dirt and oil that the makeup wipes didn’t get. Clarisonics are also great gift ideas and with the holiday season coming up, this is a gift anyone would love! From now until November 20, visit http://www.clarisonic.com/hercampus and use the code HERCAMPUS to receive 15% off of your purchase.

Love using my Mia 2 to cleanse my skin!
Tip#3: Skip the toner & moisturize.
If you suffer from dry skin, skip the toner! I go for a micellar water instead because it’s super gentle, removes excess oil, and is more hydrating than toners. My favorite micellar water to use is the Simple SkincareMicellar Cleansing Water. After “toning” my face with micellar water, I then make sure to moisturize. My favorite range of moisturizers comes from Cetaphil and I love using either the Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream, or the Moisturizing Lotion. The lotion is great for the summer, and the cream is best for winter months to keep your face looking and feeling great!   

I get the best results using a face brush to cleanse my skin.

Crazy for Navy

Thursday, October 6, 2016





Romper - UO | Hat - Love Culture | Shoes - Adidas

I scored this super cute romper from the sale rack at Urban Outfitters for about $20 over the summer. I knew it would be so easy to dress this romper up with a pair of heels and a nice sister jacket, but I wanted to challenge myself a bit and make the vibe super casual. I went for a matchy-matchy look and popped on a navy cap and navy Stan Smiths. I tried this look wearing my hair loose, but in order to make it as casual as possible i tied my hair in a low twisted bun. 

This outfit would also look super cute with a denim jacket to complete it, but considering it was 90 degrees the day we shot this look, that was not an option!

How would you dress down a printed romper?

The Minty Mask

Friday, September 30, 2016



Today, I'm testing out this 7th Heaven Tea Tree Peel-Off mask from Montagne Jeunesse! It claims to help purge pores, and clear skin. I don't really suffer from skin problems, but I do get the occasional pimple here and there. I wanted to give myself a bit of a pamper day and I'm glad I had this mask to try out!


The instructions said to spread a thin, even layer across the skin avoiding the eye area. I was also careful not to get this product onto my eyebrows because I'm not in need of an unintentional wax session today!


This mask was seriously SO refreshing! My skin felt so invigorated and awake while the mask was drying.

I left the mask on to dry fully (this took about 30 minutes) and peeled it off with no problems. After peeling it off, I applied my favorite Cetaphil moisturizer and my skin felt so great. This mask wasn't drying at all even through it contains tea tree oil and felt super minty. I'd give it a 9/10 just because it took a bit longer to dry than the packaging suggested, but other than that it was great! 
You can pick this mask up for $1.99 at Walmart, Ulta, or Bed Bath and Beyond. Check them out on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.
What's your current favorite peel off mask to use?

In the Garden

Wednesday, September 28, 2016







My sister and I wandered around the Botanic Gardens for about an hour (in 90 degree weather) searching for the best backgrounds to match this outfit. The vibrant colors really complimented the paleness of this outfit, and it didn't hurt to have such beauty to look at while shooting! 
I'm sporting a floral dress from Aeropostale, denim dress as a jacket from Gap, and shoes from Forever 21. 
Where's your favorite place to see nature in your city?

Summer or Fall?

Wednesday, September 14, 2016






Sporting my super summery duster cardigan along with my super fall-toned lace-up sandals. On this particular day, the temperature was about 75 degrees and to me, was quite chilly. I paired these two pieces with my favorite crop top, one of my DIY chokers (learn how to make them here!), and my fave go-to trousers from H&M. I'm not ready for summer to end! I already can't wait until next summer.

DIY Embroidered Jacket

Monday, September 12, 2016


Eeep! This is one of the most fun (and time consuming) DIY projects I have taken on, and it came out so great! I've been eyeing this denim jacket at Gap for a while but wanted to wait until it went on sale (because, duh) and I ended up scoring it for $20. I sure love a good sale. Before I even purchased it, I knew I wanted to do an awesome DIY on it whether it was distressing it, or patching it up. I stumbled upon a cool video of a signature jacket, and it happened to be on a denim jacket so I took my shot at it.


 Here are a couple of shots I took during the uber-long process of hand embroidering this little guy. I worked on the jacket over the course of about two weeks, working one to two hours at a time. This project can definitely be finished in one day if you have the entire day free.

 I'm so excited about the way it turned out! Check my video to see step-by-step how to tackle this project yourself. Let me know if you try it out!
