Top Christmas Gifts 2017

It’s Christmas time!!! I’m so excited!! Besides the beautiful lights and festive decorations, gift giving is my favorite part of the season. I have compiled a list of my favorite gift ideas, in hopes that you’ll find something you love for someone you love! I also created a Pinterest board that has over 80 ideas…

Italian Roasted Delicata Squash

I LOOOOOOVE this recipe! Seriously it’s pretty easy to make, tastes great, and is actually pretty dang healthy. I don’t like most squash (delicata, spaghetti, and yellow squash are my faves) and I was surprised the first time I tasted delicata, so if you’ve never tried it before– give it a shot! A lot of…

“Beauty in Wonderland” Advent Calendar (SPOILER ALERT!!)

Hi y’all! Let me just say how excited I am to be moving into the Holiday season! The weeks leading up to Christmas are some of my favorite weeks of the whole year. The decorations, cheer, buying of gifts; it can be so magical and joy-filled. Now, I’m not a fan of going all Christmas…

Orlando Vacation 2017

Hello! After a refreshing vacation to good ol’ Florida, I’m back and ready to jump back in. I was so lucky to be able to take a week-long trip to see one of my closest friends from high school, Rachel. I left Tuesday evening, trading in rainy, chilly MD for sunny and warm FL. It…

Baltimore Farmers’ Market and Bazaar

Though I’ve…

Sale Alert! Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly Palette

**Update 10/23/2017: The palette is no longer on sale, but it is a great palette and I would highly recommend it even at full price!** So I love makeup but sometimes the high price tag at Sephora and Ulta can be a real downer when you want a gorgeous, high-end product. Today, I was scrolling…

The ‘burgh

Hey y’all! This past weekend I was able to visit Pittsburgh, PA for the third time and I’m really beginning to fall in love with it. I love that it’s this big city but it doesn’t feel like one. Nestled into the mountains of western PA, it maintains that familiar small-town Pennsylvania feel while still…

Expectations and Risks

Hey there! Welcome to my blog and more importantly to my VERY FIRST blog post here. Thank you so much for stopping by! Originally I thought that my first post would be a fun one with cute pictures or something along those lines but truthfully, that’s not what has been on my mind for the…
