PLANNER: c/o Lauren James  //  Pink Gingham Halter Crop Top  //  Pink Gingham Midi Skirt  //  Pearl Drop Earrings  //  Embossed Python Leather Satchel  //  Gold Monogram Necklace  //  Light Blue Strappy Sandals  //  Beauty and the Beast Chip Mug  //  Pink Reflective Sunglasses

It’s Fri-YAY and as I look down at my mile-long to-do list, I’m reminded of why I’m SO excited to share a secret with you all. But first…I have a confession. I may be a small business owner and living the self-employed dream, but this girl is sometimes a bit…scatterbrained (okay, maybe more than just sometimes). While I’ve always had the A-type personality traits of being driven and working hard, the whole “being organized” part of the equation never quite made it into my DNA, so as hard as I try, I’ve always struggled with forgetfulness, and yes, sometimes, messiness. As a business owner who’s daily job involves dozens of never-ending tiny tasks, you can probably imagine how difficult it can be for me to make sure all of my ducks are in a row, every day. That’s why I’m SO excited to introduce you to my new BFF for both A-types, B-types, and in-betweeners like me, The Timeless Planner by Lauren James Co.

How I Became a Healthy Eater

YOGURT: Chobani Flip Cups  //  CROP TOP: Asos  //  WATERMELON SKIRT: Chicwish  //  BAMBOO CLUTCH: Cult Gaia  //  SUNGLASSES: Prada  //  WATERMELON CUP: Sunnylife  //  EARRINGS: BaubleBar  //  BLACK SANDALS: Sam Edelman  //  Monogram Necklace: Brooke and York

Confession: throughout the first 17 years of my life, I was the absolute worst eater. I’m talking drive-thru cheeseburgers and fries and frozen pizzas with all of the sugary, processed packaged snacks in between, y’all. It wasn’t until my senior year of high school when I decided to try out for the pom squad at Texas (which required wearing skin-tight elastic pants and a sports bra) that I decided to change my eating habits (or really even paid attention to them!) The results were instant and obvious – my mind and body was at a happier state, and I quickly realized I didn’t have to give up the things I craved to adopt a healthy lifestyle. That’s why I’m so excited to partner up with my friends at Chobani to talk about how their new Chobani Flip flavors are helping me maintain a healthy lifestyle without giving up the crunchy, sweet, salty, creamy snacks I crave!

An Under $30 Anti-Aging Cream That Works

 

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Olay. The opinions and text are all mine.

anti-aging-cream-that-works-1

When I lived at the sorority house in college, I distinctly remember a late night conversation with my girlfriends about skincare. We were taking off our makeup and chatting about the products we used when someone said, “I heard that women should start wearing anti-aging cream at 25.” I remember thinking (or probably saying) “what?! no way!” 25 was just a few years away. I hadn’t even started adulting yet and anti-aging products were already something I should start thinking about?! Flash forward to now, and those same girlfriends and I have frequent conversations not just about anti-aging products, but about wrinkles, because believe or not, mid-20’s is about the time when you can start to see those fine lines coming in. The trouble with most anti-aging products is that they’re way too expensive for a twenty-something’s budget. That’s why I was so excited to find Olay’s Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream a moisturizing and skin-plumping powerhouse that has proven to out-perform 10 of the top creams (including a $440 one!) at under $30!

DRESS: c/o Chicwish  //  BALLOONS: c/o Pretty Goods ATX  //  SHOES: c/o Irregular Choice  //  EARRINGS: similar Oscar de la Renta

Happy Thursday friends!! Today happens to be my 27 birthday, and after the popularity of my 2 year blogiversary post explaining 24 things you may or may not know about me (like that my family owns a funeral home business or that I met my husband on Facebook in high school) and my 26th birthday post commemorating 25 highlights from year 25 last year, I decided to do another personal post. This time I’m celebrating 27 by rounding up 27 of my favorite things (because let’s be honest, I’m not always going to be counting when it comes to birthdays!)

With so many “favorites lists” out there (remember when that was trending on Facebook years ago?!), it was hard to choose which to include in the 27, so I tried to go for questions/favorites that we’re out of the ordinary or that I could definitely speak to. So, here it goes! Click on the read more button to read about more-than-just-a-few of my favorite things, plus – get the full scoop on this fun and flirty outfit featuring the cutest ruffle sleeve cold shoulder dress.
