TWO ESSENTIAL SUMMER PIECES

Monday, May 21, 2018

Crop Top & Denim Skirt

I found this quintessential crop + denim skirt pairing in a forever 21 recently, (how am I not a walking ad at this point) & I knew I had to have it. It screamed summer, cherry cola, and vintage vibes and it was love at first sight.

Remember the ~essential~ slinky platform slides that every girl had back in the 2000s?

SIGNS YOU'RE HEADED FOR A BURNOUT

Wednesday, May 16, 2018

Signs You Need A Break

It’s such a blogger thing to do to address when you miss a day’s post, or you go on a mini break, or basically break your normal blogging cycle at all. It’s a cliche that I’m TOTALLY DOING, SUE ME. It’s important to not ignore the signs of a burnout, or of just needing a break. It's still hard for me to admit sometimes that I NEED a break. 

SOME WEEKEND READING MATERIAL (AKA RECENT POSTS YOU MAY HAVE MISSED)

Friday, May 11, 2018


Doing something the slightest bit different today, & bringing you a roundup of some of my latest posts, because I've been absolutely terrible about promoting them lately. Even bloggers have off days, okay? 

THE FACE MASK YOU NEED TO ADD TO YOUR ROUTINE

Wednesday, May 9, 2018

The Face Mask You Need

Today we’re talking FACE MASKS, specifically the overnight kind. I didn’t know the difference between an overnight mask & a regular one, and I thought the former was a bit unnecessary. However, after researching and actually testing out this overnight thing, I’ll have to retract that statement, thank you v much.

MOTHER'S DAY GIFT IDEAS

Wednesday, May 2, 2018



This one's gonna be short & sweet-- MOTHER'S DAY GIFTS. I feel like every year I get my mom a variation of the same thing; jewelry, gift cards, pampering kit, etc, but those things have become favorites to her.

SHEIN TIPS + THE CUTEST FLUTTER SLEEVE DRESS

Monday, April 30, 2018

Tips For Shopping Shein
SheIn Flutter Sleeve Dress

Out of all the ‘cheap’ clothing websites, I’ve found shein to be the most reliable. The website is shoppable and for the most part the clothes are a win. (like this cutie of a flutter sleeve number for less than $15) Of course there are some negatives, as with any shop, but if you know how to navigate things you can come away happy most every time. 

THE TRUTH ABOUT LIVING WITH PMDD

Friday, April 27, 2018

Living With PMDD

This post is a long time coming, as I've thought doing a thinkpiece/ documentation/ 'you're not alone'/ whatever the dippy-do you'd like to call it on this disorder for awhile, but I didn't know if it was too 'personal.' There's an odd sort of taboo that still goes on around periods & all that comes with them, including period related disorders. I think it’s amazing that endometriosis has been having its spotlight lately, as it should. The more we talk about these things, the less of a stigma there is. Living with an invisible illness can be a strange feeling, because it's invisible. If you don't already know the person has it, you won't know.

THE BEAUTY EPIDEMIC NO ONE IS TALKING ABOUT

Monday, April 23, 2018

THOUGHT PIECE: With Dignity & Coffee

Something I’m often caught deep in thought about (yeah, we’re getting right into the dramz today) is social media and the effect it, along with society in general, has on young women, namely teenagers. The latest pop of thoughts stemmed from Chloe’s post on how Instagram beauty trends aren’t real life & this gem of a tumblr post

FOUR THINGS I'VE BEEN LOVING LATELY

Monday, April 16, 2018


It's been awhile since I've done a good old "favorites" round up, so I thought I'd bring ya one today.

PLAYLIST VOL. ONE | SPRING 2018

Friday, April 13, 2018

Spring 2018 Playlist | Spotify

I know all the ‘blog rules’ say quality over quantity, and not to post just to post but when have I ever been a rule follower? (JK, I actually follow the rules a lot but when it comes to blogging? eh) 

Anyway, I’ve got a kickass playlist to share anyway so SCREW THE RULES. What are blogging rules anyway, and we do we think we have to follow them? Hmm, a post for another day? Maybe.

Spring Accessories | The Wooden Watch

Jord Frankie Series Wooden Watch
Jord Wooden Watch | Watches For Women

Growing up I wasn't a huge watch fan, (even though high school was filled with fossil & Michael Kors) but once I got to college and into my twenties I realized just how much of a necessity it is. &, if you choose the right one, it can be the perfect every day accessory, which is where Jord watches come in

THE UNDER $20 ROMPER YOU NEED

Linen Blend Cami Romper | Forever 21

DON'T WORRY FOLKS, today I'm featuring something that is indeed not sold out. whew. 

Okay, now let's talk ROMPERS. They’ve been a spring/ summer staple of mine for years, & thank goodness they’re still in because I eat. them. up. 

THE BEST ECZEMA PRODUCTS

Friday, April 6, 2018

Eczema Skincare Products

A few years back I wrote a post highlighting the products I used for my eczema, but that’s changed since then, as well as my blogging skills thank you very much. 

Having literally come out of the womb with the skin condition tearing it’s ugly head, I’ve had twenty three years of trial & error, trying to combat flare ups and deal with the itchiness that makes you wanna scream. 

A Moment For Embroidery (& Cherries)

Wednesday, April 4, 2018

Denim Jacket

The embroidery trend is one I haven't been that much into. I don't know about you, but spotting a cute jacket or pair of shorts, only to discover it's covered in rainbows or floral embroidery or whatever they might decide to throw on there really makes me wanna yell WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO US??  

ON FRIENDSHIP.

Monday, April 2, 2018

Friendships In Your 20s
Lemon Cold Shoulder Top

I won't tell you how much Friends trivia I know in order to know that the original pitch for the show included the line "[it's] about friendship because when you're single and in the city, your friends are your family." From the time I first properly watched the show at sixteen, I longed for friendships like that with girls I could call my very best friends. Not long after, Pretty Little Liars came onto the scene, & I longed for a strong group of a girl gang even more deeply. (Only minus the friend who faked her own death and the whole A thing) Sometimes it seems silly to relate television so much to real life, but there's a reason it resonates so deeply with people. It might be fictional, but the emotions and stories are real.

HOW I'M GETTING MY HAIR BACK TO ITS NATURAL COLOR

Friday, March 30, 2018

How I'm Getting My Hair Back To Its Natural Color

 For someone who generally doesn’t do well with change, when it comes to my hair I tend to change it up quite a bit. Maybe it has to do with the fact that I can’t make decisions to save my life. (Quite contradictory to the whole change thing. Just call me a walking oxymoron) 

BITS & BAUBLES | THREE THINGS FROM MARCH

Wednesday, March 28, 2018


 
Well hi, hey, is it time for a monthly roundup again? This one is going live a little earlier than usual, if that's okay with you. March pretty much didn't happen, if you ask me. One minute we're changing the clocks back & it's (finally) still daylight at 5:30 pm, the next minute we're mere days away from easter. (which is on april fools this year & you can just hear the traumatized cries of tiny humans everywhere) 

TIPS FOR SHOPPING AT FOREVER 21 WITHOUT LOSING YOUR MIND

Monday, March 26, 2018

Forever 21 Shopping Tips

When I've just told someone I got something at forever 21, (you know the drill, someone compliments you on an item of clothing, you respond & tell them where it's from, a conversation sometimes ensues) the response I get often is that they want to shop there more but it seems intimidating. Overwhelming. So many sections, so many styles of clothes and WHERE DO I EVEN START?? Even my best friend has admitted she doesn't quite know how to shop there, & I've told her too many times I'd show her the ropes, but I have been failing miserably. So in a way, this is for her, as well as anyone else who might be feeling their head spin at the thought of trying to tackle this big guy. 

THE EASTER DRESS EDIT

Friday, March 23, 2018

Forever 21 Floral Dress
Easter Dresses On A Budget

Easter is fast approaching, and even at twenty three I'm still a firm believer in getting a new outfit for the occasion. Maybe my reasoning is the fashion equivalent of "Jesus drank wine," but nevertheless, I'm sticking to it. I tend to stick to pastel-y, "easter" colors, and there is usually floral involved, because obviously. So I surprised even myself when I found myself drawn to the red in this dress from f21. Not that red isn't a good color, it's just not my normal first pick for spring. 

THINGS ABOUT SPRING THAT GET ME ALL HOT

Wednesday, March 21, 2018

The Best Things About Spring

The sundresses are being broken out of the back of closets, the birds are singing, the winter blues are gone. (unless you're up north, in which case, I'm so sorry) Like the new year, the start of spring makes me wanna GET ISH DONE! SPRING CLEAN! GET INSPIRED! Right now I'm on a kick of getting into better habits/ reorganizing/ cleaning/ detoxing/ etc etc that in reality will probably last a week at most, but right now I'm on a high, so let me have it for these two seconds.

SPRING HAUL | FOREVER 21, TARGET, & FASHION NOVA

Friday, March 16, 2018

Spring Haul

Each season I take it upon myself to add new items to my wardrobe, (call it an excuse to shop, I call it a necessity) and I have been on a ROLL lately. I’ve shared a few looks on here & instagram stories, and I wanted to do a complete haul as well. (I haven’t ironed any of the pieces, so that you can get a feel for how easy/ tough the fabric is to wrinkle. I've also added the link to each item in the name, for your convenience. HERE WE GO)

If Instagram is any indication, a huge trend of the spring will be belts. I’m talkin big, wide, and probably with a Gucci logo.

WORKOUT FINDS UNDER $45

Monday, March 12, 2018

Affordable Workout Finds

I’m bringing you another ‘finds under...’ , but this time, workout edition. GETTING WILD.

I've never really been one to wear athleisure in everyday, though if you are one of the ones who bring it to the street and manage to look amazing, I envy you. Anyway, I firmly believe that when you have cute workout clothing, you'll be fully motivated & ready to go, even when it's the last thing you want to do. The better part of my workout routines have involved throwing on old t-shirts & shirts for a loooooong time. Too long. Of course anything will get the job done, but it just wasn't cutting it for me anymore. I needed something to get me motivated about working out again.

YOU'RE NOT ALWAYS GOING TO LOVE YOUR BODY- - AND WHY IT'S OKAY

Friday, March 9, 2018

Fashion Nova Dress + Denim Shirt
Why It's Okay To Not Always Love Your Body

Something I talk about vaguely every once in awhile is the topic of body confidence. How to stop comparing yourself and ‘love the skin you’re in’! and that’s all well & good, but I’ve realized I don’t necessarily write on my own experiences much. My mental health journey has been a doosey, and most of the time I feel... ick bringing it up. If you understand, you understand. I’m not shy about the whole anxiety thing, as that’s something I’m going to deal with for the rest of my life, in one bracket or another. But the other things from my past just make me sad when I bring them up, because it reminds me of the crap place I was once in.

WHAT WE TACKLE, WE CONQUER | A NOTE ON WOMEN'S DAY

Wednesday, March 7, 2018

International Women's Day

We’re going on year four of celebrating Women’s Day on WDAC. It’s something so important to me that I feel it needs its own dedication each year. (although the official day is tomorrow, it's never too early) Since starting my feminist journey, (is that a thing? let’s go with it) with each year I've become increasingly thankful and overwhelmed in the best way by the strength that we have as women, and the way we stick together. 

YOUR GUIDE TO ALL THINGS ACRYLICS

Monday, March 5, 2018

Guide To Acrylics

I was in high school the first time I got acrylics. I had always wanted them but never took the plunge, (mostly because I didn't have a job) but one day my friend & I went to go to get a manicure and she got them. They looked so enticing that I sat myself down, let the nail tech put on the infamous french tips, and the rest was history.

A NOTE ON BEING TRANSPARENT IN A SATURATED INDUSTRY

Friday, March 2, 2018

Fashion Nova Midi Dress
A Note On Transparency

I was going to start this post with a side note of transparency about how as much as this dress is perfectly layed in photos, it doesn't translate as well in real life. It's still a bit big in the shoulders, and the likelihood of me wearing it out in the everyday if I can't figure out a way to take that puppy of a neckline in is.... pretty slim.

BITS AND BAUBLES | THREE THINGS FROM FEBRUARY

Wednesday, February 28, 2018



OH HEY! It's time for another little monthly roundup/chat/catch up. I cannot TELL you how much I'm ready for March to get here and spring to bloom. Once January hits I am OVER winter and fully prepared for off the shoulder tops and all the pastel colors.

THE SPRING BOOK EDIT

The Spring Book Edit | What You Should Read!

One of my goals for 2018 was to spend less time on social media & more time nose deep in a good old fashioned book. I'm always on the hunt for ones you just can't put down until you're finished-- nothing beats that feeling, am I right? So far I'm only my second book for the year, but I'm DREAMING BIG.
