L I F E S T Y L E :: Urban Outfitters Inspired Apartment Tour

Apartment-tour

Hey, guys! Today I’m showing you a tour of my apartment! If you’ve been following for a while, you saw my last apartment tour, but I’ve since moved, and I would also like to think that I’ve gotten a little better at decorating, too! A lot of my furniture is the same, but there are also a lot of new pieces from HomeGoods, Ikea, Target, Michaels, Urban Outfitters, and, since you know I’m a thrifty girl, we’ve even gotten a couple pieces from the side of the road! As always, shouts to my boyfriend Jay for letting me take (almost) complete control of the decorating! The apartment is a teeeensy...

     Hey, guys! Today’s post is a review for the ultra-famous, super hyped up, concealer of the year: Shape-tape! I have been wanting to try out this concealer for so long because it is seriously SO hyped in the beauty world.

the-beauty-chef

Hey, guys! Today is the first day of a new segment “Wellness Wednesday” where I hope to publish a wellness-related post every Wednesday! I also changed the category name from “Happie Thoughts” to “Wellness + Happie Thoughts”. I really want to focus on writing more wellness posts here on the blog because I think wellness is extremely important, and I think everyone needs to pay a little more attention to their overall wellness!! If you saw my most recent YouTube video “what I got for Christmas“, you know one of the things I bought with one of my gift cards I received was The Beauty Chef, an absolutely GORGEOUS cookbook...

F A S H I O N :: Thrifting for Basics

thrifting-for-basics

Hey, guys! Today’s post is to show off my three new basic pieces that I bought at the thrift store, and to spread awareness that you can find perfectly good things while thrifting! As you know if you read my blog, I LOVE thrift shopping. I think it’s a great way to find super stylish pieces at prices that seriously can’t be found anywhere else. Every time I go to the thrift store, I come back with GEMS, and because I spent such little money, I’m usually way more excited about my purchases! One of my favorite things to look for when I’m thrifting are basic style pieces like solid...

DIY-festive-christmas-trees

Hey, guys! HO HO HO! Today I am sharing a DIY that I saw on Sierra Furtado’s Youtube Channel a couple days ago! She is one of my favorite YouTubers, so when I watched her video for 5 festive DIY decorations I was super excited and IMMEDIATELY fell in love with the DIY felt trees because they look store bought and they looked super easy to make! I’m alllll about DIYs that don’t look like DIYs, PLUS this DIY is super festive, AND it’s super inexpensive, so it really has it all! I made these trees to decorate my own apartment, but they also work great as little gifts for...

F A S H I O N :: How to Style One Sweater in 4 Ways

urban-outfitters-statement-sleeves

Hey, guys! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! Today’s fashion post (which hopefully becomes a more frequent thing) features ONE sweater that I styled in FOUR totally different ways (one being yesterday’s Thanksgiving outfit)!! The point of this post is to emphasize that it’s not about the quantity of clothes that you have, but about their quality and how you style them! A lot of times people feel like they need a new outfit for every occasion (and sometimes I do too), but 90% of the time that is not the case! Maybe your wardrobe doesn’t feel complete without a sweater in every color, but usually, there’s no need...
