xoxo, Palm Beach

Ahhh!

My first ever collaboration came in the mail this week. I am so stoked, and feeling like a “real” blogger.

The sweet woman behind “xoxo, Palm Beach” sent me a complimentary box to try and out, and I have to say, I love it. It added the perfect bit of sunshine to my very gloomy week.

As a Lilly Pulitzer lover, I adore all things Lilly & Lilly inspired of course. This set was so cute & preppy! I’m obsessed.

rosy vox box from Influenster!

Hey y’all!

A few weeks ago I signed up for my very first box from influenster, the rosy vox box. This was the perfect first box, because it included a lot of items I use everyday. Of course, I was stoked to try them out. The best part is, you get all of it complimentary in exchange for reviews. Pretty sweet right?

what I wish I knew two months before my high school graduation 

Wow here is a totally original blog post that has never ever been done before. I guess I’ll be the first to do it. (Obviously joking.. if you didn’t pick up on that, this might not be for you)

At the beginning of my senior year I was deadset on attending the small liberal arts college my sister attended. It’s an amazing school, and I couldn’t wait till next fall. However, God had another greater plan and March 2016 I was preparing to move 3 hours away from home and attend the biggest university in the state of Tennessee. I was terrified. I was thrilled.

It’s now a year later. I love my school so much, and I could never ever imagine living in my hometown again. With that being said, I have some things I’ve learned in the last 365 days that I’d love to share.

February Favorites

Y’all. I’ve had this blog for over a year and I’ve never done a favorites post!!! Decided this would be the perfect month to start. Sharing everything I’ve been loving in February!!!

First things first, my two favorite drinks this month have been a diet Vanilla Coke from sonic & a white chocolate mocha from Starbucks.

My favorite snack this month has been these buffalo flavored pretzel crisps! This family I used to babysit for in high school always had these in the pantry, but I never tried them. I wish I had, because I’ve been missing out! So yummy, as you can tell from this mostly empty bag.

Snow YAY

Here in East Tennessee snow is something we flip over. We head to the store, buy every ingredient for chili, milk, bread.. we are not going to get hungry when we can’t make it to the store in our little blizzards 😉

We know we’re ridiculous, it’s just the way we’re raised in the south. We go sledding in an inch of snow, and head up to gatlinburg every chance we get to play in the man made snow at Ober. It’s in our blood. You love it or you hate it, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

last minute gift ideas

So many of us procrastinate these days. It’s just what we do. We procrastinate studying, getting ready for work, cleaning the house. If there’s something to procrastinate, we do it! Guilty as charged.

But one of the most stressful things to procrastinate is gift giving. Seems like a simple task, but we do it anyways. Need a last minute gift idea? Well I have a few to keep you covered.

  1. Life is Good accessories life is good is the perfect gift for anyone in your life male or female! Comfy cozy apparel, and great little accessories. I ordered these goodies from lifeisgood.com, but most outdoor stores sell the same things. A neutral colored baseball cap is good for anyone on the go!
  2. Ban.do tumbler and bagsban.do is such a great company for gifting to your gal pals, sisters, or mom. They have such cute and quirky things for everyone on the list. I picked up this tumbler and these toiletry bags to give to one of my bffs in secret Santa. Again, I ordered this from bando.com, but they’re becoming very popular in boutiques & even hallmark stores!
  3. Bourbon and bowties banglesbourbon and bowties are my all time fav accessory. And I actually have been gifted all 3 of these! The pineapple and pearls from my sister, (thanks riah!) and the mtsu true blue from my sweetie boyfriend. These are so good for any lady on your list, and are the best stocking stuffers! These are another common boutique gift, but macys and Nordstrom carry them too!
  4. A devotional a devotional is a great gift for the spiritual person in your life. While this specific one is targeted towards women, there are plenty of great men’s devotionals too! Check amazon, Barnes and noble, or your local Christian bookstore for a great one.

So there’s some proof there actually are some good gifts still left! But hurry, only 3 days till Christmas! It’s practically here!

As the year comes to an end I have to express my gratitude to everyone who has had a part of it. 2015 has been a year I hope I never forget. Although this year has been amazing, I am so excited for 2016. A year of turning 18, my senior prom, graduation, senior trip, and moving 250 miles away to begin my next chapter in college.. I have a lot of planning to do! Luckily for me, this beautiful baby was under my tree.. I’ve spent all day putting dates into it. 2016 is going to be an amazing year y’all! Let’s live it

it has been a while..

Hey loves! I’m on winter break and life is finally settling and i can get back to my true love.. My blog! If you’re still following, thank you! That means the world to me.. This is my little paradise and I’m making it my baby.

 

Here’s some exciting new things that have happened in my life since i left.

  • I got my first job! I’m working part time at a local grocery store after school. Speaking of which..
  • I’m a senior in high school! Crazy I know. I’ll be 18 in February.. Time flies when you’re having fun, right? And while we’re on the topic of school..
  • I’ve been accepted into the wonderful Middle Tennessee State University and will begin there in August 2016!

 

With all the excitement that has been going on, I’ve lost track of time and missed out on my true love-my typing. My resolution this year is to do something I love everyday, so I figure I’m making it pretty easy by getting my love back in gear. Hoping everyone has had many blessings the last few months.. Now lets kick 2016 into motion!

Summer Nights

Yesterday morning one of my best friends and I hit the road to Atlanta to see one of our favorite bands, {5 Seconds of Summer}. They opened for one direction the last two times we saw them and this was their first headlining tour so we were very excited to see them. Before we went to the show we ate at the varsity {my first time & it was awesome}.. We also went to The World of Coca Cola and that was interesting and adorable. I start school tomorrow so this was my last big outing of the summer. I wore a white top from Lizard Thicket paired with burnt orange shorts I got from Cato’s at a steal {$12 don’t mind if I do}. And if you know me at all, you already know I had to wear my white converse too. It was a great night ❤️

Sunday funday series 1

I actually left my bedroom for the first time since getting my wisdom teeth out Thursday. Went shopping and to see trainwreck (excellent movie.. don’t watch it with your mom!). As you can probably guess I’m still a little bit swollen.. But here’s what I wore
