valentine's day gift guide 2018

Excuse this super late 'first post of 2018,' but I've had a pretty lackluster start to 2018. While I had a lovely holiday season with my family, 2018 has been pretty meh so far. I think the high point so far this year was my 4th anniversary with Gerome (love you babe) but other than that, work has been super stressful, my sister currently has the flu, and adulting has just been feeling overwhelming all around. Of course, one thing that always cheers me up is online shopping (or just browsing lol)! Gerome and I aren't doing gifts for this Valentine's Day but through all my online browsing, I've come up with a couple of ideas for gifts you can give your special someone this Valentine's Day - whether they're your significant other or just someone you want to make feel loved. As with all my gift guides, you can also use this as a way to #treatyoself - you deserve it girl, especially if you've had a blah start to the year like I have. Happy Valentine's shopping! 💘

holiday gift guide 2017 | black friday edition

If you haven't already started shopping for holiday gifts (or shopping for yourself, I won't judge), now's the week to do it. There are so many sales happening right now for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, so I thought I'd let you know about all the best sales as well as some of my favorite items from those sales. I'll let you know if you need a code or if the sales I mention are sitewide sales as well as when the sales end, so this is definitely the post to bookmark if you're going to cozy up in bed after Thanksgiving to start doing some intense online shopping. I hope you find this post helpful for all your holiday shopping!

glossier showroom + phase 1 set

Hi everyone! As you know from my last post, Gerome and I went to New York for a few days this summer. While we were there, I got to visit the Glossier showroom and check out their products in real life. I've only ever ordered from them online before, so it was really cool to play around with all their products before buying them. I ended up getting the Phase 1 Set so in this post I'll talk about the products that come in the set and how I've liked using them so far. If you love Glossier or you've never heard of them before and want to know more, please keep reading!

nordstrom anniversary sale picks: gerome edition

Hey guys! I'm back again with another Nordstrom Anniversary Sale post, but this time, here are Gerome's picks! Gerome is a very particular shopper and is always looking for the most affordable deals. My style of shopping is definitely more frivolous than his. He picked out a few things for himself in the sale and a bunch of things for me as well. If you are a more frugal shopper but are still interested in the sale, you will definitely enjoy this post. Happy reading and happy shopping!

nordstrom anniversary sale picks

It seems like everyone and their mother is talking about this sale, but it IS pretty exciting. The Nordstrom anniversary sale is a time when new fall/winter products come out and you can buy them for pretty deep discounts - in early August, the prices go up again. If you like planning ahead for your next season's wardrobe, this is the perfect time to stock up on the things you need or the things you've been saving for and wanting for a while. In this post I go through some of my favorite things in the sale (this is basically my sale wishlist, divided into the store's sale categories)! Public access starts July 21, so start planning now! Sales like this can get pretty overwhelming, so it's always good to go in with a game plan. I hope you enjoy this post! Please leave a comment at the end with what you'll be buying!
