The Perfect Pamper Evening! (& My Spa Essentials)

There are few things more perfect than a spa day. When we girls get home, y'all know the first order of business is hair up, makeup off, cozies on! After a long day of work, it's nice to come home and #treatyoself. Put down the Ben & Jerry's and opt for a Pamper Evening.

When I treat myself to a pamper evening, I go all out with a facial, a hair mask, and a soak in the tub.

What's Causing Your Breakouts? 5 Surprising Culprits
I've always had a hard time finding the right products and routine to get my skin under control and free from breakouts. Because of this I spent time testing out different products, I took antibiotics and I tried several treatments such as chemical peels, microdermabrasions, laser therapy, and exfoliation.

I am happy to say that in high school I was able to get it under control and when my skin changed in college I also managed to get through that. Every now and then I still get a few bad breakouts, which leads me to go through my list of possible causes.

Layering for Fall: Don't Ditch Those Sundresses Yet!

Summer's winding down, but all you want to do is grab a snowcone and head outdoors. The last thing you can think about right now is your fall wardrobe. Who wants to buy cashmere and wool when it's 100°? If you can't bear to push your brand new sundresses to the back of your wardrobe, listen up!

Even your summeriest of pieces can be souped up for next season: It's all in how you layer your look.

Extend the life of these three quintessential summer dresses with a simple change in footwear -- ditch the flip flops for something sturdier -- and the addition of a layering piece.

ASOS Dress in Patchwork Print // Top Shop Faux Fur Gilet Vest // ASOS 'Absolutely Fine' Leather Ankle Boots.

Get The Look: Sheer Knit, Full Skirt

So, you saw something totally Pin-worthy, but haven't a clue how to make it work IRL? Get the Look is here to save the day with three different takes on that oh-so-stylish outfit inspo.

You can be sweet and sultry in this perfect summer-fall transition outfit. Punchy colors pair well with the sheer knits for a new twist on an old silhouette. This look is all about pattern play, the unexpected pop of color in your booties, and the peek-a-boo top. Ramp down the raciness: Opt for the more pedestrian look of a camisole or a lacy bralette, and leave the pasties to professionals. See the inspiration photo here.

Engagement Advice...For The Fellas

Photo Cred:

It still hasn't hit me that I am about to turn 23 and I am a college graduate! It seems like yesterday that I was saying goodbye to my girlfriends in high school and entering the sorority world in college, where I would meet several more fabulous ladies whom I am lucky to call friends.

Feeling 22?

Image c/o

It's August, y'all. The college kiddos are coming back from European adventures and exciting internships to paint the town red, and I'm sitting on my couch, planning tomorrow's really rare and exciting Starbucks outing before a closing shift. Summer isn't quite the same when you work full-time... and post-grad life isn't quite what I thought it would be.
