little loves


It has been too long! I have SO MUCH going on, that it has been really hard to keep up. I hope you all follow me on Facebook because while I might not be sitting down and blogging here as often as I'd like right now, I am always sharing pictures, deals, and happenings there! But I finally have time to do some catching up here too, so I'll fill you all in! 

Besides working, staying fit, the 8 (yes 8!!) weddings I have from June to September, I'm also working on a BIG surprise project (that will be revealed by October 1, stay tuned), and am MOVING out on my own for the very first time! Moving out is a lot of work, and I have a lot of nerves about it! Any Advice?

Some outfits I've worn recently, three weddings and the jumpsuit out to see The Lion King at Playhouse Square on date night.
Top Left: Michael by Michael Kors dress I scored for $40 instead of $200. LOVE this dress! The sleeves are actually full length but I cuffed them under a bit here. The fabric is a nice thicker fabric, and it has a gold exposed zipper up the back. The shoes are Zara.

Top Right: Urban Outfitters dress I got back in February in NYC. I felt like "The Girl On Fire" in this dress! And it was nice and breezy thankfully since it was HOTT out this day. The shoes are from LuLu's.

Bottom Left: This was one of my more casual weddings so I wore one of my favorite Loft dresses (few years old) because its perfect to dress up or down! Clutch from some random boutique in Columbus, and Jessica Simpson shoes from like 2007 or something crazy!

Bottom Right: Loft Jumpsuit (recent) and Gianni Bini pumps. LOVE both these items SOOO much! I felt like Sandy from Grease during "You're The One That I Want".

Random little happenings from the past few weeks.

Was flipping through my Akron Life magazine and flipped when I saw MY BLOG was voted as one of the best blogs!! It was SO COOL to see my blog's name in print! Thank you to whoever voted for me, it meant so much!

Had a great time of July 4 with some friends (and the boy) at Blossom for The Cleveland Orchestra Concert. We packed yummy food, drank, laid out a blanket, listened to good music, kept good company, and saw fireworks. Can't wait to make it to another show this summer!

Have you heard of Gym Pact? It's a great new app that rewards you for hitting the gym, and helps you get your butt there when you're feeling lazy! You make a pact every week, and place a bet (mine is $5) to you'll lose for each incomplete workout and the end of your week. I'm now on my second week and have already earned $4 (you can earn more if you set your pact for more workouts, mine is set at 4 a week right now). It may not seem like a lot of money but at almost $10 a month it practically pays for my Birchbox! And this week it successfully got me to the gym TWICE when I REALLY wasn't feeling it.

I am giving away this awesome set of a Sally Hansen's Gel Strips Kit (comes with one pack of gel strips) and a refill Gel Strips pack on my Facebook page RIGHT NOW! Valued at $45 this is a great giveaway! GO ENTER NOW, and Good Luck!

Working on packing and purging for the move, and condensed my outerwear down to this rack. Got my love for a great coat from my mom, totally makes an outfit.

Had the awesome opportunity to try out Pond's new BB cream, and was REALLY pleasantly surprised! I'm not the biggest fan of BB and CC creams (they are too sticky), but this one I honestly really love! I am filming my review tomorrow and uploading it this week, a well as GIVING AWAY 3 BB creams to you lovelies! Stay tuned to the blog and my Facebook page this week to get yourself's one of these!

That's all for this week! Hope you lovelies are having a great week! Be sure to stay tuned to the blog for the Pond's giveaway, a post about the best necklace you'll ever buy!
