It’s that time of year already, I can’t believe it. The holidays are right around the corner! Ah! I feel like this year has flown by, right? I posted on my Instagram stories the other week and asked if anyone wanted to see holiday gift guides this year and there was a HUGE “YES” response! So here we are. I put together a few key lists for the people in your life, and hopefully these will help you!

We’ve got a gift guide for HIM, gifts for the BEAUTY & SKINCARE junkies in your life, gift ideas for the LADIES and for the HOME!

Hi friends, it’s been a while since I’ve posted and thought this would be the perfect time to share a little home tour of my new apartment! I haven’t really “announced” it, but I moved to a new place at the beginning of June and have been slowly, little by little, getting everything in place. I really started over from scratch, which has been fun- new bed, new couch, wall art, all of it. It’s been really refreshing to have a blank canvas so to speak and to be able to figure out what kind of vibe I wanted to go for.

I decided that overall, I wanted the general vibe to be very boho and easy. Boho is what I tend to gravitate towards the most- there is just something about it that makes me feel at home. I’m certainly far from a modern decor type of girl. I want a home that feels lived in, feels cozy and comfortable and inviting. To me, modern decor feels too stark and cold. Know what I mean?

When I started the process of decorating, Pinterest was my go-to. These are some of the images I found that served as my initial inspiration. Aren’t they pretty?

Winter neutrals are my newest obsession lately! I’ve been seeing such cute outfits all over Pinterest and Instagram and knew I needed to jump on the train. Not only does this combo feel super fresh and different, but it also means that I don’t have to give up wearing my favorite white jeans that I got this Summer. YAS!

Here is my look- neutral from head to toe! My sweater is from Target ($19.99 and comes in a bunch of colors), my jeans are from American Eagle (they fit like a glove and you need them- $45), and my booties are from Forever 21, but any brown boots will work!

I also like the idea of taking these neutrals a step further and doing a white on white look. Winter white monochromatic vibes? I think it could work, honestly.

Fall is here, y’all! I mean, at least it feels like it in the morning and at night when the sun goes down. Ha!

I know some women (if not most) love Fall because it means sweater weather is here. Right? Don’t get me wrong, I love new sweaters too, but my favorite Fall clothing to buy are definitely sweatshirts. I think I own equally as many sweatshirts as I do sweaters. Is that normal? And let me clarify, I’m not talking about baggy, oversize, slumpy sweatshirts. I’m looking for fitted, cute, feminine styles that look adorable with jeans and sneakers. NOTHING BETTER!

Fall has officially begun! I’m sharing the best cold weather Accessories that I hope you’re going to love as much as I do!

It’s the end of September, but it still feels like the peak of Summer here in LA. Actually, I’m pretty sure most of the country has been going through some heat waves. My parents live in Minnesota and they had a few 85 degree days last week. My point is…. Pumpkin Spice everything has hit us all in the face, but I’m not sure Mother Nature got the memo.

Despite the heat, a bunch of new styles landed at Forever 21 that I’m SO excited about. I’ve been working on these styles for months now, and I think they turned out super cute. The colors, the prints, the textures (these scarves are so soft, no joke), I’m obsessed with it all. (If you want to read more about my job and what I do Monday through Friday for Forever 21, click here!)

Raise your hand if you were obsessed with Tie Dye when you were younger? I mean, if you grew up in the 80’s or 90’s, you definitely were. And if you weren’t, you’re too young to be here… (just kidding…!). I remember rocking tie dye shirts constantly as a kid, don’t you? I’ll have to see if I can dig up some old school photos and throw them up on Instagram for fun- might have to call Mom for those!

There have been a lot of 90’s trends that have come back recently that I’m 100% NOT on board with, but I think the tie dye trend can stay. Biker shorts on the other hand, absolutely not. Man, I wish those would go away… But that could be an entirely different blog post.

Tie dye is literally everywhere right now- from accessories to dresses to workout gear and on and on. Plus, any color combo you can think of, you can have it. I’m all about the BRIGHTS, but there are some cute black and white styles that are a little easier to wear.
