Hi friends, I wanted to share this jacket that I’ve seen EVERYWHERE recently. My Instagram feed has been filled with multi colors (5 to be exact) of this adorable knit quilted lightweight jacket from Free People that is to die for. It’s no question Free People has a reputation for creating beautiful high quality clothes, but they’re also known for having a spendy price tag.
Which leads me to this amazing quilted zip-up dupe I found recently at Forever 21! It’s almost 1/4 the price and equally as cute! Both are on trend this season and will transition well to cold spring mornings! Main differences : zipper detailing on FP is gold, F21 is silver. FP jacket is distressed. F21 jacket has a hood. Pocket placement on each jacket is slightly different. Do you prefer the splurge or save option!?
Hi friends! I wanted to put together a list of all my recent favorites & products I’ve been loving so far in 2021! These are the products I’ve been loving & reaching for over and over again for skincare, makeup, fashion & random items that are absolutely necessary to me.
Tula The Cult Classic Purifying Cleanser – I’ve quickly realized the reason “cult classic” is in the title. I love this gel cleanser because it leaves my face feeling so clean & glowy, this is one you can genuinely feel good about using because it’s 100% free from phthalates, parabens, toxins, carcinogens, mineral oil, sodium laurel sulfate, and harmful preservatives. YAY!
Hydro Boost Water Gel – I’m OBSESSED with this moisturizer because it has Hyaluronic Acid in it which attracts water from the air into your skin. It REALLY moisturizes your skin. It’s lightweight but it makes your skin feel nice & supple, plump & hydrated.
Laneige Water Sleeping Mask – I know you’ve heard of the lip mask, but this one is for your skin! It’s the consistency of moisturizer & does absorb into your skin so you don’t have to worry about it getting onto your pillow. When you wake up in the morning you face is SO SOFT! Don’t believe me? It has 163.9k loves from other customers on Sephora’s website alone.
Olaplex Hair Treatment – this treatment has 2 parts No. 0 & No. 3, which can be used by itself if you want to just try out one. I color my hair & use this treatment once a week & it has helped my hair so much, even my boyfriend noticed how soft & shiny my hair was after using this! It helps keep my hair strong.
Living Proof Dry Shampoo – I’ve loved this dry shampoo for awhile, but I don’t normally get the jumbo size & I love it because it lasts so much longer not quite double the product but only $10 more which overall saves me money! The technology behind this dry shampoo is so cool! It will actually bind to the oil in your hair & after a few minutes I rub my roots & the white powder along with the oil LITERALLY brushes out of my hair to leave fresh clean hair. The product doesn’t build up & feel gross in your hair either!
Maybelline Lifter Gloss – I always grab this gloss in the ice color – I keep one in my bag & one with all my makeup when I get ready for the day & it’s so nice! It has hyaluronic acid & naturally plumps up your lips – nothing too dramatic & it doesn’t hurt like a plumper. It smoothes out the cracks/lines in your lips & it’s not sticky AT ALL.
Everyday Essentials Brush Set – I cannot believe I’ve been missing out on these brushes. I haven’t ever been able to justify $50 for 1 brush & I’ve always used inexpensive brushes from morphe BUT THEY SHED like crazy! This led me to these amazing brushes from Real Techniques – I’ve loved their beauty sponges for years so I’m not sure why I didn’t think to test out their brushes. Now that I have, I’m never going back. They are SUCH great quality – so soft & no shedding whatsoever. They blend like a dream too! I also went back and grabbed the Eye Essentials kit – which comes with a lash separator to use after mascara to prevent clumping and I LOVE. I also grabbed this really big bronzer brush & it’s probably my favorite out of all of them. They’re BOGO 1/2 off right now too!!!
Shape Tape – Again I’ve always loved this product, but last year I was searching for more drugstore options & ran out of this and forgot to grab more so I continued to use the drugstore “dupes”. HOWEVER, I just recently started back using Shape Tape & let me just say I haven’t found another product that does what this does for my under eyes. Perfect example of if it’s not broken don’t fix it, lol! ALSO : I found shape tape on sale basically 2 for the price of 1 + a free sponge on QVC. Use the code : OFFER if it’s your first time ordering from them or HELLO if it’s you second time. That will bring the price down to $27.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette – This palette is so beautiful & it’s perfect for everyday. It has a ton of neutrals & mattes with a few shimmery shades thrown in there for when you need a little extra for date night or a night on the town.
Morphe X Jaclyn Hill Palette – I LOVE this palette – the story is great the quality is great it really can’t get better. I love how inexpensive these palettes are ESPECIALLY how many shades you get it’s crazy to me. The colors in the palette are so awesome for spring & summer coming up & if you’re into bright colors this is the palette for you.
Adidas Promotion Adapt Shoes – These shoes are so convenient & easy to quickly put on + they’re super cute. I’ve been using them on my training days in the gym or just for going on a walk/running errands. I love the elastic bands on the shoe they really hold it tight to your foot which I like & they have the cloud foam technology which feels like you’re walking on a cloud.
Fawn Design Backpack Mini – This is such a great bag & has so many pockets to help keep you organized. I know it’s meant to be a diaper bag, but the mini is the perfect size as a purse. I am really impressed with the quality – it’s really soft & nice leather thats super thick and well made. I love that it can be wiped down completely too.
Amazon Cotton Thong Panties – Listen – I was a Victoria’s Secret ride or die for awhile & then all my underwear started falling apart & bleeding onto my other clothes. I was on the hunt for the perfect pair of undies that are comfy because that’s my main concern & then I found this pack on amazon it’s 6 pairs for 10 bucks! Are you kidding? Why was I spending $30 for 5-7 pairs of undies?! Anyway I’m not the only one who loves these they have over 26,000 rating & are the #1 bestseller in thongs on Amazon.
Velvet Self Tanning Mitt – WOW! Has this made the biggest difference in my self tanning or what?! Why on earth I kept buying cheap little ones from Ulta I do not know. This baby will last FOREVER. It helps you blend out the moose SO MUCH EASIER & it takes way less effort to get a streak free tan. Since using it I really have stayed streak free. It’s super easy to clean afterwards as well.
Quip Electric Toothbrush – I cannot find the color that I have, but if you go in-store maybe you can find it! I have a pink & rose gold toothbrush. I really love the bristles on this tooth brush because they genuinely clean my teeth so well & it has a built in timer. It comes with a travel case & a holder to stick it onto your mirror if you want to. The replacement heads are $5 for a new brush head + it comes with a new battery as well, they have an auto ship options for every 3 months & the first month is free.
Hi friends! I seriously can’t get over how Walmart has stepped up their fashion game. They’re all such great quality especially for the price! I’ve linked some of my recent favorites from my order. When I’m ordering I typically stick to a few brands that I know I like & are good quality so I don’t get cat-fished.
Square Neck Puff Sleeve Mesh Top – this top is from No Boundaries (one of my favorite brands. TTS. So cute & flirt, will definitely go in and out of stock because it’s so popular. I got the black but it comes in other colors.
Over the knee boots – these black synthetic suede type material boots are so soft + cute! They have a tie in the back to keep them tight around your thigh & a zipper at the ankle to make putting them in easier. 1 inch block heel, easy to walk in & TTS.
AC/DC Band Tee – this leopard print/acid wash duo is to die for. Fits TTS but I ordered a size up to get a bigger oversized fit.
Shearling Hiker Boots – I wear these constantly, lace up lug style hiker Boots with a shearling tongue. They fit TTS.
Cheetah Print Sweatshirt – super cute AND cozy! The best of both worlds. TTS a little oversized length to cover the booty.
Camo Print Sweatshirt – I love how cute & flattering this sweatshirt is, it has side slit detailing. A bit of extra length in the back to fit more tunic style. TTS.
Sherpa Pullover – this is such a great dupe for the A+F pullovers but for only a fraction of the price. It’s so cozy & warm, fits TTS.

Hey girl hey! I am extra excited today to be sharing some summer hair accessories to make your life easier. I love these hair accessory trends because they’re cute + they make getting ready in the summer super quick. There are a million things to do this & throwing in a headband with yesterday’s curls = farmers market win. I went to Anthropology this past weekend and felt like I had entered hair heaven.
PONYTAIL SCARF // I never want this to go out of style. It’s such an easy way to spruce up hair you haven’t washed in a couple days. It comes in LOADS of different colors. A few of my picks : Cheetah, white floral, tropical & pink floral.
KNOTTED HEADBANDS // I think this is such a cute trend & I’ve seen so many girls wearing them. When I walked into anthropology and saw these prints I about died over how adorable they were but honestly I was a little worried they would look weird on me. I desperately wanted them to work because how easy to throw a headband into you hair on a summer day? It makes it actually look like you tried! After trying them on, I’M SOLD. They didn’t look strange at all. They looked just as cute on me as they did on all the Instagram girls. Here are a few of my favorite prints : white, palm print, blue & white stripe, pink twist, coral, raffia, peach gingham.
Hey girl heyyyy, welcome back! Today I’m sharing my new discoveries that I’m obsessing over & I think y’all will love too.
BEAUTY & FASHION //
1- Laneige Lip Glowy Balm! If you love the lip mask in a jar, this is the tube form! No longer do you have messy fingers or the little spatula that breaks before you even finish the jar! Major bonus for us germaphobes.
2- The best Camo T-shirt, it has the best fit & is only $8 at Target! #targetwin
3 – Platform sandals that won’t break the bank & will help you stay on trend. They come in 11 different colors.
3 – Meal prepping has never been easier with these to-go salad containers. They has a spot for all your toppings & dressing separate from your lettuce. No more soggy croutons or trying to pile 4 containers while running out the door to work! By the way if you can – checkout your local Home Goods or TJ Maxx to see if they have them because they’re likely cheaper there + you can find extra dressing containers.
4 – Bluetooth speaker we took with us this weekend to Bear Lake at the beach. It’s waterproof, shock proof, & has 15 hour battery life. Colby loves it for RZR rides too.
5 – This loveseat style camping chair has made summer baseball games much more enjoyable. My family usually has a big fan section so we end up in rows where people can’t see, our’s is the low version so we sit closer to the ground & everyone else can see over our heads. Plus I think its the most comfortable folding chair I’ve ever sat in.
I also just discovered that TJ Maxx has an online website so goodbye to all my money. Don’t ask how I didn’t know this, after finding Home Goods doesn’t have a website I just assumed there was no websites for discount stores.
My FAVORITE thing to wear is a big cozy sweater with some black leggings and boots. My go to all fall/winter. It never gets old. I know my closet is full of classic maroon, cream & grey sweaters but I needed to add a few trendy sweaters to my closet this year here are the ones I LOVED while looking for my own closet :
Lately I have been obsessed with anything & EVERYTHING CAMO! Yes I love it enough to deal with everyone’s jokes about not being able to see me. Here are a few of my favorites that I’ve found, CHEERS TO FALL :
Okay we’re a little bit late on this one, but better late than never AMIRIGHT?? I think I am. June has been crazy and I cannot believe it’s almost the 4th of July! I’ve been waiting for fireworks & BBQs for SO LONG! I’ve been using my youtube app a lot lately watching make-up tutorials, one I am loving is Desi Perkins. She is a glow & brow queen, everything she makes really is so awesome. Definitely check her out. Also her make-up room is to DIE for, if there was one thing in life I could have THIS WOULD BE IT!!
I’ve NEVER been a fan of blush before, until I found this color from Tarte. I always end up looking too flushed and red. This blush is different, it’s subtle and the perfect color for my pale pale complexion.
I’m SO excited to share this Protein Water. YES!! Protein water. I absolutely hate protein shakes, but these… these are AMAZING. 60 calories. 0 sugar. 15g protein. Depending on the flavor the protein is 10-15 grams. I got the variety pack with 15g.
I ordered this jumpsuit for my trip to Seattle. Since I’ve been home I’ve worn it multiple times & I try to wear it every chance I get. It’s seriously comfy and can be dressed up or down.
I’ve been looking for a pair of platform sandals for a minute and found these black Steven Madden ones. Also considering these ones with a white sole.
Brought home this pair of Nike’s from the 5 floors of bliss Nordstrom store in Washington.
HAIR ACCESSORIES… Anyone else been loving this trend?? Found this cute Bandana pony scarf. Maybe I’ll make a full post with all the fun things I’ve found recently, we’ll see.
Being a student money is tight and you don’t have a ton of time, so I’ve compiled this list to help with both of these things.

Be sure to set up an account if you don’t have one already so you can get the codes, all you have to do is have an institution email & confirm the link they send to you.
