This skin

It isn't new news to you all that I have been having problems with my skin lately. After trying countless things I am on the verge of giving up. As a last little effort, I have tried using less to try and see if I was just overworking my skin with all the treatments I was trying. I have been doing this for about a week now: Dove beauty bar, a light toner, and moisturizer each morning; Dove beauty bar, night time moisturizer and spot treatment at night. My face overall is less red than it was, but the acne and pain associated with these breakouts have not changed (better or worse).

Other than running to the dermatologist, which I plan to do in the next month if possible, I am researching the best lotions, creams and treatments to try and help myself out. I'm over it, but here are the things on my radar now.
With summer coming up, I really want to be able to wear less makeup and just enjoy the sun and warm weather. Getting my skin under control is priority number one. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I need a snooze button

Well I am not sure my dog will be complementing my outfit, but if Monday was short it would be nice.

Friday

Let's see, what happened Friday? Nate worked late and I was planning on cleaning the house up and getting some design work done. My external hard drive crashed so I lost quite a bit that I need to try and recover somehow. Instead of doing all of that though, I spent time with my little (from my sorority) and it was great. We went to dinner and then came back and talked until the Bruce Jenner special came on. What a story!?

Saturday

I would like to say that I got to sleep in Saturday, but my dog doesn't have a snooze button. He wakes me up every day at 7:30 on the dot. Then I cleaned my house and made a quick trip to the store to get a few last minute things for dinner that night. I then got glammed up for dinner and spent the rest of the evening laughing and eating with friends. Among those friends a new puppy named Marley who entertained Remi once he got the courage up.

Friday's Favorites | April 24



Oh hey there people. It is Friday, finally! I don't know about you but I am pumped for the weekend. Did anyone else take part in TGIT on ABC last night? If you did, did you sink into a Thursday night depression like I did? Yup, I cried like a baby. Grey's will not be on my favorites list this week because I am still too sad. Here are the things that did make it though.

Lemons in my Water

In addition to improving hydration, drinking water with lemon is a great way to boost electrolytes and replenish energy stores

There are a crazy amount of benefits to drinking lemon water in the morning, but honestly it just tastes better. I have been doing this all week and it starts my mornings off bright and fresh.

Game of Thrones

I would be lying if I didn't say that I am obsessed. So obsessed that I caught up to the current episode in a week of binge watching the series. Whoops.


Pull n Peel Twizzlers

Nate brought me some after work one day this week and I am in heaven. I don't know why I love these so much more, but they are my favorite.

And that is it. I swear one of these days I will get back in the groove and post more than three times a week. After sitting at home on the computer for work all day, it is just hard to sit behind the computer again. I'm in a funk, I need help.

I hope you all have a wonderful Friday and weekend in general. See you Monday!

Sandal Obsessed

Although it looks gorgeous outside, it is cold and windy. Hooray for spring right? All this flip flopping of weather has me dreaming even more or warm sunny days and endless beaches. I need a vacation.

Speak of dreaming. What is more dreamy than a collection of sandals just in time for summer shenanigans? Seriously, all of these are drop dead gorgeous.

And that is another wishlist. Keep up with all my drool worthy wishes by following me on Keep (here).

Monday again


It's Monday. Grab some coffee & be awesome!! ❤️

I am trying to be positive, but Monday came way too soon this week. Cute little puppies always brighten my day, which is even more necessary when it is as gloomy as it is outside. Anyway, on to the weekend wrap up.

Friday

I had the great treat of seeing my cousins for a little bit Friday evening after they went dress shopping. It is nice to be so much closer to them now. The rest of the evening was filled with relaxing and organizing, and some pretty good mac and cheese. 

Saturday

My morning started bright and early to get to my beautiful friend's bridal shower. It was the cutest thing at a little tea house nearby. Brunch, pretty things, and time with friends. It was a great way to spend a Saturday.

After the shower Nate and I finished putting everything away in our house and did some quick cleaning. We still have boxes in the closets but rooms are all tidy looking. It is some major progress. Now we just have to figure out what to do with our front, formal living area.

Friday's Favorites | April 17



Hey everyone, sorry I have been a bit absent this week. It has been a crazy one, but I swear I will be back at it full force next week. Until then, here are my favorites from this whirlwind of a first week in our new home!

Our New Home

It seems only right to start off my favorites with this one. I love our new house and we have made some serious progress this week. You can check out our moving weekend recap here, and next week I plan on doing a walk-thru post before anything got moved in.

I have said it once before, Amanda's stuff is amazing, and her custom work is perfect. I asked her for something with a rose to link back to Raindrops on Roses and she made me the above bracelet (c/o). Perfect isn't it!? I love it so much and I cannot stop wearing it! Please go look at her stuff and support this great small business woman!

The weather this weekend


Seeing those numbers makes my heart happy. Hooray warmer weather!

Manly scents


Like this wax melt by Scentsasional
or this scent by Calvin Klein.

Springtime Pastels

Photo By Arvee Marie

Spring is in the air and I really am over the moon about it. It is the perfect temperature for taking my dog for a walk, grilling and just enjoying being outside. What better way to embrace the light, spring weather than with pastels and florals? Seriously, nothing sounds more spring-like to me. 

*Disclaimer: This post contains afiliate links.
I have had an overwhelming obsession with shades of green (mostly mint) ever since about this time last year and it doesn't seem to be fading. All the shirts above just draw me in and I can't help it. Also on my radar for a while now are a relaxed pair of holy, lighter wash jeans and a nice nude wedge with some attitude. The floral adidas are to die for also and are a perfect way to dress down nicer shirt for a casual day.

A spring outfit isn't complete without a good, neutral bag (at least in my book), a good pair of sunnies and a bright pink lip. It just ties it all together.

What are your go-to pieces for spring?

Oh, What a Weekend!

 photo 20150411_151056_zpsug8xtga3.jpg

Morning lovelies. I'm coming to you from my new home! It was such a crazy weekend getting everything moved here and settling in, but we are here and moving forward. I think the best way to tell you all about it is just my typical weekend wrap up.

Friday

Honestly going into Friday morning we weren't 100% sure that we would be closing that afternoon. There were a few things still being finalized late into Thursday evening so although things were looking good, there was still a chance of something going wrong. At about 9 a.m. though we got the all clear and I started running around getting things done. getting everything set up through the bank, making sure my car was packed full and of course getting my eyebrows done (super important).

By 12:30 p.m. I was headed south, we were done with all the paperwork by 4 ish and the house was ours! After we unloaded our cars we jumped back on the road to head to  my in-laws' to pack up everything else so we could just leave in the morning.

Saturday

We woke up bright and early Saturday to pack up the remainder of our things and make the drive one last time to unpack everything. For me, the drive was easy but I wasn't pulling a trailer. My family and Nate's were there with us and we got everything unpacked just in time for lunch.

Friday's Favorites | April 10


Another Friday, another list of favorites! This week is kind of BuzzFeed heavy, but they all were just so perfect.

This Guy

Honestly my dog is one of my favorite things every week, but this week I took a few pictures of him because he has been my sidekick lately.

All of these BuzzFeed articles:


Struggles that were all too real to 90s kids

For real, the struggle of Dunkaroos and Capri Suns were enough to ruin your day.

Sephora on FleekSecrets for shopping at Sephora13 Emotions Everyone Experiences in Sephora

Because Sephora is an experience in itself.

That pizza and Bill Nye though!

This Is Why Teens Are Rapping About Eggs, Bacon, Grits And Sausages

Apparently I am too old or out of the know, because when a co-worker sent me this video I just asked why. Why in the heck are people rapping about sausage. What did I miss!? As always, BuzzFeed tries to help us understand.

Rules of Engagement


I am currently binging on this on Netflix currently and am giggling myself to sleep each night.

A New House

We get to buy our new house today! So, so excited!
