favorite online stores

I avoid going to stores at all costs. I much prefer shopping at online stores from the comfort of my couch with a cup of coffee and my laptop. I like to take my time thinking about my purchase and read reviews on items. And I will even let items sit in my cart for days at a time, just to make sure I really want it, and it’s not an impulse buy. I first got into this habit when… Read more »

Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening for Sensitive Teeth

*You can enter to win a free whitening kit at the end of this post! ?You have such a beautiful smile!?? That is the best compliment you can receive, in my opinion.

10 Different Looks Featuring 1 Pair of T-Strap Heels

quirky, summer shoes

Who doesn’t love a fun pair of shoes?! And these days, there are so many quirky options just a click away! However, weirdly enough, I’ve never really indulged in quirky footwear all that much.

vintage dress shopping

Dress c/o* | Heels (Old. Similar here & here) | Bracelet c/o* I love vintage-inspired fashion, but authentic vintage dress shopping has always intimidated me.
