90's Vibes + Floral Overall Dress

It's the middle of October and the leaves are finally starting to change in North Georgia. I was kindly sent this dress by My Sister's closet and I love it! It gives 90's vibes and it's such a flattering fit with the tie around the waist. I paired it with a long sleeve basic tee from TJ Maxx and some wedges I got from Target last year.

My Pamper Routine

Something I've been learning lately is the importance of self care. One of my favorite quotes is "You gotta nourish to flourish."
I believe that to be true in every aspect! Not only on the outside but the inside as well! It's important to always take care of yourself in every way, so you can be the best version of yourself. 

I like to take one day out of the week to really pamper myself and get some "recharge time". I thought today I would share my pamper routine with ya'll and let you know what products I like to use! 


The first thing I like to do to wind down from the day is a relaxing bath. I always like to use a bath bomb if I have one! If not, I just use some bubbles and drop a little bit of lavender essential oil in there to help me relax. These homemade soaps from Mountain Soap Co. have been a favorite of mine lately. I got the scents cotton candy and watermelon!


I have struggled with acne for years now with an endless pursuit to make it disappear. It hasn't quite happened for me yet but it doesn't stop me from trying! My skin requires a little bit of extra care but this routine always keeps me feeling fresh. 

1. Remove makeup with hot wet wash cloth 
2. Cleanse face with gentle cleanser and vanity planet spin brush  
3. Exfoliate 
4. Tone 
5. Mask 
6. Dermaplane (dermaplaning removes peach fuzz and dead skin cells from your face)
7. Moisturize 


I personally love to do my own nails! I have only been to the nail salon twice in my life and for some reason, I just didn't like the experience. I would rather do my own and I find it very relaxing and therapeutic! 
My current favorite polish: Sally Hansen miracle gel polish and top coat
Hand cream: Hempz Moisturizer


I get a lot of questions about what I use to whiten my teeth. I use Smile Brilliant and it has worked great for me! They send you your own personalized trays that fit YOUR teeth perfectly. I put the whitening gel in the trays and leave them in for about an hour. I do this about 4 times a week until all of my whitening gel is gone. 
I have been loving my results so far! You can click here to try it out for yourself! 


My favorite part of pampering is tanning. Nothing makes me feel more confident than a fresh golden tan. I'm trying to cut back on outdoor tanning and tanning beds (my skin will thank me later). I use the St. Moriz dark tanning mousse. You can get it for around 13 bucks at Ulta. After I get out of the shower and my body is exfoliated and my legs are shaved, I pump the product into a tanning mitt and apply. I sleep in the tan overnight and shower it off in the morning! 
I love this stuff and have been using it for years. Everyone always think it's a real tan, which I love. I love a natural, dark tan. 

What do you do to treat yourself? I would love to hear about your pamper routine, along with some new products you think I would like!

Hair Ties & Denim + Sharing My Heart

Hey ya'll! Hope you all had a great week. Today I wanted to share an outfit and honestly just share my heart. Something I feel like God is teaching me lately is the art of forgiving and letting go. I say "art" because it really does feel just like that - something that is hard and takes time, but the end result is something beautiful. I have realized that holding onto the past causes so much bitterness, and that's something I no longer want in my life. I no longer want to remember my own mistakes and regrets, along with the mistakes of others that have hurt me deeply. After all, we have one life. One chance to live free from bitterness. The days we spend reflecting on the past add up to years of wasted time. 
Today I challenge you to choose joy over bitterness! 
"Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead."
-Philippians 3:13

All of that aside, I wanted to share a super cute outfit. 
This outfit was actually inspired by an Instagram story that Kristin Johns posted not long ago. One of her friends had on an outfit very similar and I thought it was just adorable! (I can't remember her name, ugh). I have always loved the look of hair ties but never tried them out much. I can honestly say I love them now.

Hair tie: Walmart

Fall Boho Style

Hey everyone! I'm just over here living my Fall dream with this amazing weather in Georgia. This is definitely my favorite time of the year for many reasons! The colors, weather, coziness, and the memories made. Some of my very best memories have been made in the Fall so this time of year always brings a comforting and happy feeling of nostalgia. 
Today I wanted yo share with ya'll an outfit favorite of mine this season. 
I got this dress online on Shop Dress Up last year, but this was the first time pulling it out of my closet. I cant believe I never wore it before because I LOVE it! Does anyone else do that? Keep an item in your closet for months and then love it when you actually wear it?
I can't find a direct link because it's old, but I will link some similar items below!

similar dress here!

and here :)

Overall Dress + 7 Things

Hey ya'll! I had a good response on my last 7 Things post so I thought I would do it again. I love these posts because it gives you a glimpse into my personal life and helps me to connect with y'all more.
Here's 7 things I have been up to, trends I'm loving, and more!

1. The camouflage and cheetah print trends this Fall are to die for. Those two prints have been my favorites for years now and I'm so happy they are trendy right now. A lot of people think I'm crazy for calling it cheetah print instead of leopard. Maybe I just like to think I'm a cheetah girl, sue me. 

2. I have been attempting to make my own bath bombs lately and it's so fun. I am a huge lover of a relaxing bath and having my own bath bombs is kinda cool. 

3. I have been reading the book "Quiet" by Susan Cain and it's great! I highly recommend it for the quiet introverted type of personality. It's packed full of information and a really interesting read about introverts.

4. Fall time makes me so happy. There's something so nostalgic about this time of year that brings back so many good memories. And the changing colors of the leaves is beautiful in the mountains of Georgia! 

5. I have been so inspired by so many Girl Boss's lately! I love seeing women out there living their dreams and building up other women along the way. I have been loving Kristin John's new brand, "Kristin Made". She is the cutest human and I wish her the best of luck.

6. I was in a creative rut for a very long time and I feel like I am finally coming out of it. I have so many exciting ideas about my blog, business, and the future. I am excited for what's to come! 

7. I have been contemplating making a Youtube vlogging channel for so long. Should I do it?? What do you think? I think I'm ready to start! 

I also wanted to share with ya'll the CUTEST overall dress and leopard (cheetah) purse I got from Caroline Hill.
This is definitely one of my favorite Fall outfits so far. 
The team at Caroline Hill was sooo sweet and their clothing is super cute and high quality! I recommend checking them out for sure.
