Bold + Bright with Willow Park Boutique

  

Good morning and happy rainy Tuesday! Today I'm brightening things up with this bold chunky necklace from Willow Park Boutique. What caught my eye about this piece was the fact that it reminds me of a Britt Bass painting! Bright, bold colors on this made-to-order chunky necklace make it the PERFECT summer necklace. This full look is from Willow Park Boutique, who you may have read about in one of my latest posts. I absolutely adore them and am loving all of my pieces from their online shop, including this embroidery detail top that is also perfect for summer with some white jeans or shorts
(PSA - I did have to size up to a medium in this top because it was a little tight on my arms and hips. PSA #2 - I have "more substantial" arms and I definitely have me some hips).

Product Review | R&F Lash Boost

  

Who doesn't love long lashes? I spent many months getting lash extensions and while I absolutely LOVE the length and drama they added, I didn't love the cost or maintenance of them. When I heard about Rodan & Fields Lash Boost, I was super interested to try it, but also a little skeptical - especially when the price tag rings in over $100. When my friend Callyn sent me some to try (fun fact- Callyn and my mom grew up together and were best friends throughout all of high school. It has been so fun connecting with her through them!), I was super excited.

Today I'm sharing my progress and thoughts on this product with you! I've been consistently applying it for about 8 weeks now, and my lashes have NEVER BEEN LONGER. I get stopped by people asking "Are those your real lashes?" I even got asked by my dermatologist the other day if they were real, and what product I was using because she was so impressed. 

When I started out I felt like my lashes, that are naturally long-ish, were short and blunt after months of lash extensions. I started applying the Lash Boost each night before bed. The application process is super easy - you just swipe a little bit on your eyelid above your lash line. A little bit goes a long way and at first I thought if I loaded more product onto my eye, it would help them grow faster but it was totally unnecessary. Plus, the less you use, the longer it lasts! Here's an outline of the process :: 

-After washing your face and drying thoroughly, apply a thin line of Lash Boost to your eyelid ABOVE your lash line (key here is that you don't want to put it IN your lashes at all, because then it will get in your eyes)
- Let it dry for about 90 seconds before laying on your pillow, smearing it, etc. 
-Let it work while you sleep! 

I noticed results pretty early on, after about 2-3 weeks. I could tell my lashes were growing, and the progress only continued. Now I have MAJOR lash growth and with one coat of mascara they are so long that they sometimes hit the tops of my eyelids! I'm continuing to use the product and can't wait to see further progress! Here are some before + after shots.

BEFORE - it ain't pretty, y'all! Also note that this was taken in late winter, hence #pale and WHY is this bathroom light so horrid?!  (you can see I still had a few stray lash extensions lingering but aside from that, my lashes were virtually unnoticeable)

AFTER 8 WEEKS, no mascara - I know - it's hard to believe that I have ZERO mascara on!! See how much darker and thicker they are?! 

AFTER 4 WEEKS with 1 coat of mascara... I am not lying - one coat.

AFTER 8 WEEKS, one coat of mascara - 

That being said, I am a true believer in this. I don't sell R&F, and although I've tried it in the past, I don't even use their skincare. But the Lash Boost is the REAL DEAL, y'all, and totally worth the money - especially when you compare the cost to the upkeep of lash extensions. If you're interested in trying it, contact my friend Callyn, who is awesome and will be happy to answer any questions for you!

Sliding into Summer

   

IMG_6244.JPG

Happy Thursday! It's almost the weekend and I'm sharing one of this summer's biggest trends - the slide. I was a little skeptical at first because let's be honest - a lot of the slides you're seeing look like something your grandmother might wear. BUT, I've actually come to love the slide because it's just so easy to slip on, and comfortable to not have to deal with an ankle strap, etc. I've also found that most of them are pretty flattering if they hit in the right spot and I've found LOTS of options are super cute and non-grandma-ish (not that there's anything wrong with grandmas - we just shouldn't wear their shoes!).

Shop my personal collection, plus all my current favorites in stores...

PS - You can find the twisted slides (mine are yellow - that color is sold out, but there are other colors and they're only $19.99!) HERE.

Summer Staple | Navy Dresses

Happy Hump Day! I'm giving myself a pat on the back because this is my THIRD day in a row blogging and I am so proud of myself. If I can get three blog posts up in a WEEK, I'm doing great, but my goal this year was to really amp up my blogging so I'm trying to follow through on that. Plus, spring and summer makes it so fun to blog because there are so many great summer staples! Case in point, I always love a good navy dress. There's something classic and timeless about navy and most everyone looks great in it. Today I'm sharing a fun navy dress from one of my new favorite boutiques, Willow Park. They are an online boutique that is local in Marietta, and the women who run it are awesome and fun! We met last week over champagne and shopping and if that doesn't make you my instant friend, I don't know what does. If you don't follow them on Instagram + their website, do it now! They have the greatest staple pieces with lots of fun jewelry and accessories. I'll be teaming up with them a lot in the near future to bring you so much goodness!

I love this dress because the lace top is so fun, it's lightweight, and the sleeves on it are a super flattering cut. I wore it on Mother's Day for church & brunch, and it's great for any summer occasion - from showers, to lunches, to date night etc.
*It runs pretty true to size - I'm wearing a small and am usually an XS/S, 5'5".

I am also in love with these earrings. The navy against the white really pops, and they're easily worn from day to night. My cut-out block heels are linked HERE (and under $50!) Since I had some questions about my sunglasses, I tried my best to find them but I got them at Nordstrom Rack several months ago. I believe that THESE are them, or at least the most similar that I could find!

11 Random Favorites

   

Good morning! Today's post is super random, but also may be super helpful for anyone who is on the hunt for a great little gift, housewarming present, new pillows, a cute dress, awesome earrings, etc. Get my drift? All 10 of these items are RANDOM, but things that I am really loving right now. Here's why :: 

1) This mug set. I found it on Amazon months ago while looking for gifts, and ended up keeping them for myself because I love them (whoops!). They make a great housewarming gift, or just a great set of mugs to have. I love the prints and blue makes me happy


2) These raffia earrings. I stumbled across them last night and Y'ALL. They look super lightweight (I will confirm this later on when I hold them in person) and I love the texture! 


3) Pom pom pillows. I love all things pom pom and am excited to incorporate it into my home. These are on promo and are super comfy! 


4) These slide sandals... Do they even need an explanation?! FRINGE | BAUBLE


5) On the subject of pom poms, I found this adorable dress recently and sizes are selling out quickly! 


6) This dish towel because it's just plain cute

7) Because I can't keep a plant alive, I've been on the hunt for some great faux ones. Fiddle leaf figs are by far my favorite, and this is a great faux option! 


8) Cork Phone Case - I've been on the hunt for a new phone case and I LOVE anything cork - shoes, bags, and now phone cases. I also love the rose gold frame. 


9) Did y'all know that Stella & Dot has sunglasses now? I love them all but these are definitely my favorites. 


10) This pouf. Because I love poufs and this is pretty! 


11) Cut-off denim shorts because they are a summer staple, and I love the raw hemline on these

Happy Shopping! 

Easy Summer Dresses

  

Happy Monday! It is HOT HOT HOT in Atlanta and one of my favorite things to wear in the summer is an easy dress. When I say easy, I mean no-fuss, lightweight, flattering and cute. I don't want to have to tug at it, belt it, wear sticky boobs, suck in or any of that nonsense. Today I'm sharing some of my favorite EASY dresses that can go from day to night in the summer heat. And, they're all under $100, with most ringing in at below $50. Women, rejoice! Your summer uniform is here.

This particular dress is SO lightweight and comes in LOTS of colors. And, it's under $30 PLUS an extra 30% off! I also love this beaded tassel necklace because it can be easily dressed up or down. This also comes in multiple colors! 

You can pair these easy dresses with flip flops, heels/wedges, and a jean jacket for cool nights.

It's Back | The Denim Skirt + Mother's Day Special

  

Happy Tuesday! The denim skirt is making a comeback and although I was a little hesitant at first, I'm now fully on board for a couple of reasons ::
1) It's easy
2) It has a flattering shape
3) It's an alternative to denim shorts which can be too tight, too short, etc.
4) It's great with shorter, more cropped tops which are everywhere right now
5) It's cool & casual for summer! 

Today I'm sharing a casual denim skirt look featuring this cute cropped ruffle top that I have worn with this skirt, high waisted jeans, and shorts. It's so fun and flirty for summer. I love the raw hem on this skirt. It does run a little long, so even if you're not petite, you might want to go petite if you like your skirts on the shorter side. 
(*sidenote - can we TALK about these earrings? All I can say is, you need them)

Red Hot

Happy Friday, y'all! Today I'm sharing one of my favorite RED HOT tops. I am a big fan of the color red, but for some reason I don't have a whole lot of it in my closet. It has to be a pretty perfect shade of red for me to wear it, and this top fits the bill. I love the open shoulder detailing  and the tie sleeves, plus the length is great because you can wear it with leggings into the fall. I paired it with these amazing red statement earrings and white denim, but this top goes with ANY bottom. Perfect for a summer night out!
