With the new year fast approaching it's time to start thinking about resolutions and such. One thing that I have always enjoyed doing but have never made a priority is journaling. Starting in 2017 I want to keep up with it.

Let's face it, there are only so many Christmas songs and then there are about a million variations of each one. Plenty of them are very slow and perfect for snuggling up by the fire under a blanket with hot cocoa and your sweetie by your side. But realistically we like to listen to Christmas music more often than the two nights a year we might actually do that! Here are my pics for Christmas songs that you can get up and dance to! Because who doesn't need a little dance party every once and a while, especially during the holidays?

They say your skin changes in your twenties. I haven't seen drastic changes (TG!) but I do feel like my skin fluctuates more than it used to. At certain times of the month... my skin gets more oily and blemishes appear. Usually I would say I have normal skin (aka not dry, not oily) and around my nose is definitely my problem area.

The Insta-famous flamingo wall just so happens to be in Chicago! I did not know this when we were planning our trip but once I discovered it was in Chicago I found out where it was and it was only a few blocks from our hotel!

Brian and I are back from an amazing trip to Chicago! It was our first trip together since our honeymoon and his first time to Chicago. We had a really great time and I want to remember the details and also share some of the great things to do there in case you're planning a trip of your own!

Fall is coming in hot! Literally! As a Florida girl I just don't care about the no white after labor day rule, and jeans and scarves are still months away. Hopefully there are a lot of you who can relate and will appreciate a style post that still works for 85 degree+ weather! :)

One way I like to start transitioning my wardrobe from summer to fall is to start introducing darker colors into the mix. This strappy spotted pink and black dress with these summery black heels does just that!

Little known fact about me - I love watches! Not so little known - I love Lilly Pulitzer! So I'm really excited about this post since it's two of my favorites together.

After all the months and months of planning you finally get to your wedding day only to spend the entire morning on edge while getting ready, praying the day goes as planned. Then you spend an hour (if you're Catholic) in the spotlight on the most emotional day of your life in front of every single person you love and care for. STRESSFUL! So to say I felt a weight lift off my shoulders once I got to our wedding reception is an understatement!

In case you haven't been on Instagram all summer, off-the-shoulder tops are kind of a thing right now. I haven't had owned one before but after seeing everyone jumping on the bandwagon, I decided to join in the fun - and I love how it worked out!

Wanted to write this post because lately I've been feeling a little bit down. I recently shared my blogging plan and have been proud of myself for really sticking to it the past few weeks! The bad news is that I feel like despite my increase in content, my page views just aren't what I thought they'd be and my Instagram follower number isn't where I want it to be. That being said, let's get into the dirty deets.

Finally a fashion post! It's been so crazy lately I've been sporting paint splattered shorts and free college t-shirts most of the time working on our house so my outfits haven't exactly been picture worthy #reallife

If you don't know, I love me some Instagram! You've probably read about having an Instagram "theme" for your account. Good articles on that here and here. My "theme" is all about light and bright. All white everything, bright colors, and clear pictures. How do I achieve this look on all of my posts? Keep reading.

I wanted to make this Wedding Wednesday a little less about me and a little more about Y-O-U! I asked you on Instagram and Facebook what kind of wedding questions you had and now I'm going to answer them! I'm not a certified wedding guru by any means but I had a completely DIY wedding (as in no wedding planner, every single thing was figured out/done/styled by me, my mom, and my fiancé) so I know at least a little. Hope these answers can help at least one person, then I know I did my job :)

Calling all bloggers! Are you on snapchat? Not just do you have the app, but do you put stories out there for your audience to see?

As promised last week, I am going to share about our ceremony today!

As I often do on Monday mornings, today I found my mind wandering around the thought of my blog's future. I don't want my blog to slowly fade into the black, and lose all of my hard work from the last almost 2 years. As I sat at my corporate desk job, I thought about the freedom I could have if I just got my blog in check. I often think about this and get 'lightening bolts' of inspiration and motivation like "yeah I got this, gonna work my butt off but I'm gonna be a full time blogger by this time next year!". A few minutes later I find myself back on the couch, watching HGTV and mindlessly scrolling through Instagram. I'm finally ready to make the commitment - something has to change. Don't get me wrong, I have a great job, but for anyone who loves blogging, you know the dream of doing it full time is always there!

Some people love when blondes wear yellow and some people hate it. I say wear what you want regardless of your hair color! But I do love a blonde in yellow, its so sunny and fun! What do you think?

This post isn't for the page views or the followers, the likes or the shares, this one is for my memories and for something to look back on someday to remember this time in my life!

One thing I really wanted at my wedding was a sparkler exit! All the pictures I have seen look so beautiful and I knew I wanted some of my own! For as many of these awesome shots as you see on Pinterest you would think it was normal to do, but a ton of reception spaces don't allow them! So before getting your heart set on sparklers, make sure your reception space is a-ok with you having them.

Ya'll! I think this might be my most favorite outfit ever! It's a little bit nautical, a little pop o' pink, and a lotta bling bling!

This weekend was JAM. PACKED! It seems like a long weekend because of how much I did but it also flew by! It started Friday night at Mall at Millennia at the MAC Technique event. I had the opportunity to interview the speaker, MAC's Director of Makeup Artistry Gregory Arlt!

Happy Wedding Wednesday! Today I want to share one of my favorite DIY's from my wedding - our table "numbers". I say "numbers" because we actually had table letters. Each person found a letter next to their name instead of a boring old number like everyone else.

One of the biggest bummers about Instagram is that if you have multiple accounts its a pain in the butt! Log in, log out, log in, log out - awful.

Welcome to the Wedding Wednesday series! I didn't start this series while planning my wedding because I am a girl who loves surprises and I wanted every thoughtfully planned detail to be a surprise for all of my guests. But now I've been married for over 3 months (how in the...?!?!) and have shared all the photos and videos with my close friends and family so now it's your turn blogosphere! Every week I'll share a detail from the big day.
Everyone always talks about their wedding day being the best day of their life and let me tell you - it is! I wish we could do it all again! The day is such a flurry of emotions - nervousness, happiness, bitter sweetness when you're dancing with your dad, and pure joy having all of your loved ones in the same room, all there just for you. There really is nothing like it!
To kick off the series I'd like to share our wedding highlight video! Hope you LOVE it as much as I do!

Have you seen one of these before? It looks like a (semi) regular hairbrush but it works (kind of) like a straightener. It's a hair brush straightener!

Okay okay I know the official color of the year is Rose Quartz (which actually is the exact stone in this necklace).
I love when people do looks all in one color so I decided to try it out myself! In my favorite pink of course!

You all know how much I love makeup so I figured I should share some of my favorite palettes with you! Some of these may no longer be available but similar things are or will come out again around the holidays - so don't worry!
First things first (I'm the realest) is my everyday must have - the Too Faced Little Black Book of Bronzers! 8 of their amazing bronzers in an adorable little book! I literally use this every single day and I love having the variety to choose from! My favorite shades are Milk Chocolate and Pink Leopard, it gives SUCH a gorgeous glow to your face.
Next is this blush palette from Benefit. This one came out for the holidays but I'm confident it will be back next year because they had a similar one two years ago too.
I love the Hoola bronzer in here too. My favorite blush shade is Rockateur, it goes really well with my skin tone. The mini Watts Up! that's included is a super bonus too.
This one is definitely still available and so affordable! It's the contour palette from e.l.f. I LOVE the shade in the bottom right corner. It is truly perfect for contouring - looks really natural. The top right shade is great for "baking" (keeps your contour sharp) and the top left shade is a subtle highlight. I usually like a ba-BAM highlight but use this one from time to time when I'm attempting subtlety ;)
At $6 and with a giant mirror you really can't go wrong.
Lastly we have an eyeshadow palette from Too Faced - the original Chocolate Bar! This smells so legit and makes me smile every time I open it!
I love warm, golden tone shadows so obviously this is perfect for me. I also have the bon bons palette which is great too but I picked this one to feature because it is my go to!
Soooooo... tell me what your favorites are! I always need something new to try!
P.S. Guysss I found the little book of bronzers!! Check it out below!
Don't forget to Sparkle!
