February Favorites

These are a few products I've been loving this February! What have you been loving??



My January Favorites

I'm all about cleanliness as far as what I'm putting on my body and it's been a struggle to find a clean yet efficient deodorant but I think I found one!! I'm loving it so far! I snagged it in Sephora and looked it up here and it gave me the green light. Using the EWG App has been a lifesaver to filter through what's "good" and "bad" for me these days. This deodorant has a sweet, tropical smell + it goes on like normal deodorant: no paste, no chalkiness. 

2. This Spotify Album


I have been JAMMING out recently to this worship album by my friend Emma Warren. She is killing the game and has the best version of "King of My Heart" I have ever, ever heard. If you haven't listened to it but worship music is your jam, too, click the here and it'll take you to the Spotify album or click here for Apple music.

3. This Nail Color

I've been getting gel manicures for a while now and keep going back to the color "I Canolli Wear OPI" and I'm obsessed. It's the greatest cool color for the winter. It's a great mix of a classic grey with a hint of blue - it's great for people like me with lighter skin and wants to make your skin tone look a little warmer. HELLO, give me that.

4. This Sweater

I am obsessing over this sweater and have been wearing it around the house, to the movies, around town running errands and date night. It looks like a coat but has a neckline like a professional cardigan but feels like a robe. Can I get an amen??

5. This Lip Color


Berry is the way to go this season and this lip gloss (not sticky) in "Fig" is the best berry color I can find. Plus, did I mention it's "clean" too?

6. This Snack

Thank you Trader Joe's for providing the yummiest snack (that comes with a Gluten Free option as a well) for the Holidays. They're called Candy Canes Think Oreos with a peppermint twist. Gimme, gimme, gimme.


Costco Recommendations + Vlog

Over on Instagram, I asked you what your favorite products were at Costco and what I should be looking out for during my very first trip to Costco. I was a little hesitant because I wasn't quite sure what to expect but with your help, I found everything I needed, wanted, and more!


After wandering around the store with my mom, I came out with some goodies. I wasn't shopping for groceries necessarily, I was visiting family and didn't want to bring home all the perishables back home to Birmingham. So, I walked out with some necessities I couldn't find elsewhere, great deals I couldn't buy back home and a few snacks for the road trip back.


I also received a few messages for me to share what I walked away with and although it wasn't much, I thought it was a good idea!  It was easier for me to make a video showing you all that we got rather than Instagram stories of everything soooo ENJOY!

Fall Favorites

There's nothing better than a spreading pumpkin butter on a warm buttery croissant for a quick "pick-me-up" snack or dessert. You can also use this on pancakes or waffles, toast or mix it into the batter to give it a pumpkin-y flavor. What's any better way to welcome in fall than enjoying an autumn flavored sweet treat?

One of my favorite parts of fall is the warm makeup looks. Between the warm eyeshadows with creams, browns and oranges and the warm blush tones, this lip sheer is a perfect fit. I also love the fact that it has a hint of vanilla, and it's moisturizing instead of making your lips a little more chapped. Which, we all know that moisture and fall is a needed combo.

These Madewell Slippers are the best to throw on during a cozy afternoon watching movies, cooking in the kitchen on the cold hardwoods or getting ready in the morning with the chilly titled floor underneath you. It has soft sheep fur inside and a great moccasin type look to it so it's not your average, ugly slipper. Praise!

Peep toes are the greatest when there's a transition from warmer weather to more brisk weather. It gives your pedicure a little more time to be shown off but also adds a little flavor to your skinny or boyfriend jean outfit. This peep toe is great because of the warm texture of the suede and the fall color of forrest green. Bring on alllll the fall fashion!

Embroidered jeans are honestly fun for any season but they're coming back hard core or fall. It adds a flavor to your jeans that mixes up the outfit. If they're boyfriend jeans, you get extra points. This comfy fitting, but still chic, pant is great for errands around town, pair it with a white tee. It's also great for a night out with the girls if you add a blouse with a "front-tuck."

With fall, you never know what to wear out of the house. In the morning it's chilly, so you may want to grab a light jacket. Towards the afternoon, it may get a little warmer and you may decide to shed the jacket. But, with a jacket, your wallet and phone, anything you may have picked up throughout the day, it can easily become a handful. That's why I trade in my summer clutch for this perfect leather backpack by Lauren Conrad

This is the perfect magazine to have on your nightstand or coffee table. It's a new favorite of mine. You can find recipes, fashion insight, stories and incredible photography inside. They're chic and minimal so you can thank them for a simple design. They have seasonal volumes and I've heard nothing but great news about this Fall's magazine.
