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! 💘

wooden watches by jord

There’s nothing more timeless than a watch. These days, we’re always grasping for our phones to check the time, when it could be as simple as checking a beautiful and practical accessory on your wrist. Personally, I’m a watch person and don’t really switch watches ever - I find comfort in wearing the same pieces of jewelry every day. However, I did add a new watch to my collection recently - and it's a wooden watch - from the brand Jord. Keep reading to find out more about Jord and what I think about their wooden watches.

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!

purpose jewelry

If you know me, you know I’m very into social justice - especially organizations and movements that empower women all over the world. When the brand PURPOSE Jewelry reached out to me to partner on some posts featuring their pieces, I knew I had to share their brand with you. PURPOSE Jewelry is a brand that works with victims of human trafficking to empower them and give them employable skills to help improve their quality of life after being rescued. When you make a purchase from PURPOSE Jewelry, proceeds go to International Sanctuary, a charity that works for the empowerment of human trafficking victims. Keep reading to see what I think about their jewelry and to learn more about their mission (there's also a discount code at the end if you're interested in the collection)!

petite creators you should follow

Hey guys! You all probably know by now that I'm tiny af - 4'9" to be exact - so of course I have a lot of love for other petite creators. It's hard putting out content in an industry dominated by tall girls, but we make it work. It can be difficult finding style inspiration when you're extra short, so I wanted to provide a resource you can go to if you're looking to see how certain looks and styles of clothing look on shorter heights. Not all of the bloggers in this list are just fashion bloggers either - there are lots of lifestyle bloggers who do other things besides drool over clothes like I do. Petite content creators are awesome all around. Please bookmark this post if you're a petite gal looking for inspiration for dressing for your height or just want more similarly short ladies to "look up" to. I've included everyone's height for reference and I'll be updating it as I find more petite bloggers. Enjoy this post and make sure to share it with other petite ladies in your life!

the river café

Hey guys! Gerome and I started off the month with a short trip to New York for his 25th birthday because we got tickets to the August 6th show of Dave Chappelle's Radio City Music Hall residency. I thought about making one big post about the trip, but there are a couple different things I want to highlight from the trip so this will probably be a series of New York posts I scatter around other pieces of content on my blog instead of an extra long post. This post is about our experience at The River Cafe, which is a beautiful Michelin-starred restaurant in Brooklyn. We started off our trip in New York with lunch at the restaurant, and I honestly think I’ll remember the meal for life. I hope you enjoy my little attempt at being a food blogger!
