Friday Five

Friday Five

Who’s excited for a three-day weekend?! THIS GIRL! I don’t have anything planned except for relaxing, being productive around the house and working on the blog, which may sound boring but it’s an ideal weekend for me. After staying on the Strip last week while my parents were visiting, this homebody is ready for some r&r. […]

’70s Fashion

’70s Fashion

Remember that lace top I featured in last week’s white on white post? Well, I told you it would be on repeat and here it is once again! This time I gave it a 70s vibe by styling it with a suede skirt and earthy tones. I like how the lacy pattern stands out against […]

Summer Must-Haves ON SALE!

Summer Must-Haves ON SALE!

I’m all about finding a bargain, so I get pretty excited when one of my favorite stores has a sale. The Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale is in full swing and there are so many great pieces for up to 40% off! I’ve picked out a few of my favorite items to share with you guys (if you click […]

Hats Off

Hats Off

I love fashionable hats, but it’s hard to find one that looks good on me. This straw fedora caught my eye mainly because of the striped band (I have a serious addiction to this simple print). When I tried it on I was surprised that it actually fit well and wasn’t too overpowering. Since it […]

Friday Five

Springtime means visitors here in Vegas! We tend to have a lot of friends and family come see us this time of year since the next few months will be unbearably hot. This weekend my parents will be in town, so I’m excited to spend time with them while eating, shopping and lying by the […]

Summer Sweater

Summer Sweater

I could live in shorts and sweaters if the weather permitted. It’s just such a comfy combination that can look really stylish, too. While visiting Laughlin, Nevada last weekend I wore this casual look as we explored the waterfront and casinos (it’s basically a mini Vegas, but on a river and 1.5 hours away). The […]

How To Spring Clean Your Blog

How To Spring Clean Your Blog

When it comes to blogging there’s a lot to keep up with: social media, daily posts, emails, etc. It’s easy to forget about the things that remain constant on your site, like your “about” page, side bar widgets and profile pictures. However, it’s important to take a time out and refresh every so often. Last […]

Tuesday Trends: Denim Skirts

Tuesday Trends: Denim Skirts

When I first saw denim skirts coming back into style, I wasn’t sure if I’d be caught sporting that trend. They were a little too reminiscent of the Abercrombie & Fitch miniskirts I’d wear in high school (with an A&F or Hollister graphic tee and Old Navy flip flops—anyone else remember this classic teen look?!). However, […]

White on White

White on White

As many of you know, I’m a Target-aholic (and I’m guessing many of you are, too!). Their pieces are always right on trend and, best of all, affordable! One of their latest collaborations is with Who What Wear, which is an amazing blog for fashion inspiration. The styles are all very classic and neutral, making them […]

Friday Five

Friday Five

Happy Friday! I hope everyone had a great week. I’ve been getting back into the swing of things after having a long weekend in Washington, where I was born and raised. It was an emotional trip since it was for my grandma’s funeral, but I enjoyed spending time with family that I hadn’t seen in […]

My Smooth Skin Must-Haves

My Smooth Skin Must-Haves

Everyone’s a fan of the good hair day, but I personally love a good skin day even more. Although I enjoy trying new products, there are certain skin care items that I use religiously. Living in a dry climate like Las Vegas can be hard on your skin. I was worried about moving here from Seattle […]

Top 10 Spring Trends

Top 10 Spring Trends

Instead of sharing one specific style for my weekly Tuesday Trends post, I thought it would be fun to highlight 10 styles that are musts for the current season. There are certain pieces that are continually on trend (stripes, gingham, rompers, pastels, white dresses, etc.), but these pieces seem more specific to Spring 2016. You can shop the […]

Casual Chic

Casual Chic

I love pairing unexpected pieces, such as pretty pumps and distressed boyfriend jeans. Mixing casual and dressy items can be a simple way to get an instantly chic look. More masculine pieces, like a striped crewneck T-shirt and leather-sleeved cargo jacket, can be balanced out with feminine accessories. In this look, pink mirrored sunglasses and […]

Peplum Cami

Peplum Cami

Spring has sprung here in Las Vegas and I’m trying to take advantage of the moderate temperatures before we get hit with 110+ degrees. White jeans are my go-to pants this time of year, so I recently purchased this high-waisted pair with ripped knees because I have the same style in black and LOVE them (you can see […]

Rum Cake

Rum Cake

While we were in the Caribbean, we saw rum cakes everywhere. Rob loves them, but when I asked if he wanted to get some he said, “Nah, I bet you could make one that’s just as good.” That was nice of him to say, but I wasn’t sure if my first attempt at this booze-flavored […]

Mother’s Day Brunch

Mother’s Day Brunch

I hope everyone has mailed their Mother’s Day cards, purchased a gift or at least marked it on your calendar to give her a call! If you haven’t and you live in Las Vegas, definitely stop by the Las Vegas Premium Outlet Malls because they have a lot of offers (so many 50% off deals!) […]

Spring Styles For Long Hair

Spring Styles For Long Hair

I have very fine, thin hair which makes it difficult to grow out, so when Irresistible Me reached out about reviewing their Silky Touch hair extensions I was really excited about the opportunity! I’ve never tried extensions before because I was worried about looking fake and the expensive upkeep of going to a salon, but […]

My Guide to Las Vegas

My Guide to Las Vegas

If someone had told me four years ago that I’d be living in Vegas, I would have thought they were crazy. I’m not a party person, hate extreme heat and never wanted to leave Seattle. However, after meeting, marrying and moving with my Air Force husband here we are! Having lived here three years now, […]

Spring Beauty Buys

Spring Beauty Buys

In the spirit of spring cleaning and fresh starts, I decided it was about time to add some new products to my makeup collection. Since my tan from our cruise is quickly fading, I wanted to find a good bronzer to make up for the fact that I’m sitting at a desk all day instead […]

Chorizo Tostadas with Watermelon Salsa

Chorizo Tostadas with Watermelon Salsa

With Cinco de Mayo less than two weeks away, I thought it would be fun to share this sweet and spicy tostada recipe. The refreshing watermelon salsa complements the chorizo perfectly and will be a hit at any fiesta! Plus the avocado and cilantro cream sauce adds great flavor. They would pair perfectly with a classic […]
