BohoBlu Summer Round Up

Hi friends!

Today I wanted to give you a round up of some BohoBlu pieces I either personally own or tried on and loved!  I currently model at BohoBlu and get the opportunity to try on many clothes before I purchase them, yet when I go into the store to get them, I still try them on again...weird I know (gotta make sure it's right lol).  Their summer clothes are coming to an end and fall stuff is beginning to arrive, meaning some discounts!  Without further ado, here are some pieces I'm loving

Clarabelle Top
Mom and I bought this to share because it makes a great work top while it's still hot in August and September.  She even took it to Vegas with her!  Was $34 now $26!

Gwendolyn Top
I personally do not own this one, but I did enjoy wearing it while we took pictures.  I think it's fun for a flirty evening out on a date with your boo.  Skinny dark wash jeans, a pair of strappy heels and you're ready!  Was $25 now $19

Everly Romper
This is so comfy!! I love this romper y'all.  It's easy to throw on and look cute and casual.  I'd wear it traveling or to go to town in to run errands. Was $40 now $30
Tay Shrop you need this ;)

Elisha Top
When I initially put this on, I thought "perfect work top!" It has thick enough straps to pass school dress code lol and it's fun.  I haven't decided if I'm going to buy it yet or not, it's on my watch list.  Should I? Yes or No.  Let me know in the comments. Was $35 now $26

Yasmin Top
I've been eyeing this top!  Animal print is in, and this top does a good job giving me that vibe.  It's versatile enough to wear to work or out at night.
Currently $35

Kristine Top
Mom and I bought this one as well to wear to work for the warmer months.  I'd wear it with my black dress pants, and flats to teach in as I think it has a professional look to it with the collar. Throw a pretty cardigan on in the fall to go with it as well.  I think that back of it is neat too.
Was $30 now $23

Boho did not ask me to do this, it just came to my mind as I was looking at their site.  I would never post something if I didn't personally own it or like it.  I simply thought of all of the clothes I get to see and try on and it made me want to share the love with all of you. 

If you liked this and want to see more let me know!  I had fun writing it.

Vegas Travel Guide!

Hi friends!
After spending the weekend in Vegas with Jake I wanted to share a few things I loved, wish I would have done/known, and hope to do next time.  

Travel Accommodations:

I personally didn't know where I would be staying, Jake wanted to surprise me, we stayed at The Venetian, it was beautiful!!!!  However, I did get to pick our flights.  Thing to note, Vegas is 3 hours behind us, so I definitely recommend getting an early flight there, ours left at 7 am out of GSO and we landed at 10:54.  It basically gave us almost an entire day in Vegas. But.....prepare to be EXHAUSTED.  I was almost awake for 22 hours.  Also, do not take a taxi, they charge out the wazzo, but they are the first thing you see when you exit the airport.  Uber and Lyft are on a different floor, and are quite literally half the cost.  Trust me. (Fun fact, 2 Chainz was on our flight home!)

My Current Skincare Routine & Fav Products

Happy day my loves!

I wanted to share my current nighttime skincare routine along with my favorite products as of late.  I would classify my skin as dry, I used to as a child, and occasionally now, still get eczema.  Therefore, moisturizing is a key priority for me.  Progress pictures for my eye cream are at the bottom!
**Pro Tip: I recently learned a tip from a model I follow that says you should apply your facial products according to consistency, so lightest to thickest!

How To: Get Into Reading

Hi friends, happy Sunday!  It's been quite the eventful day here, I woke up around 7ish to the power going out due to the ice.  I ended up walking over to my grandparents house across the road to get my morning coffee and oatmeal since they have a generator.  It thankfully returned around 11:30, praise to those Duke Power workers!  Then, we had a birthday lunch for my papa, mom cooked some banging homemade lasagna.  I did myself a Rebecca Louise HIIT workout, washed some clothes, and now here I am writing to all of you!

I wanted to talk about reading, one of my favorite hobbies.  I used to despise it in elementary school and early middle school, but in 7th grade I got a book for Christmas and ever since I have loved to read.  I'm a HUGE believer in the saying, "If you don't like to read, you haven't found the right book."

I've currently read 2 books so far for 2019 that I'd easily recommend to y'all (below).  I loved them both.  My 2019 book challenge is to read 25 books this year, but I hope I read more than that, it's a little more difficult to make the time during the school year but I'm trying.

A couple of tips I have for those of you who either 
A. Don't like to read or B. Want to read more.

1.  Find a friend/friends who like to read! 

Shoutout to my besties Lizzie and Hayley who have shared books with me and I with them.  It's so much more fun to read when you can share books with someone else who likes the same thing, and can broaden your horizons on books you typically wouldn't read.

2. Make a Good Reads Account

I just did this last weekend and I LOVE IT!  I'm able to connect with my friends online about books we've read, are currently reading, and want to read.  I created my profile based on what I've read since I graduated college.  It's super easy to type in a book, add it, then rate it!  I love being able to rate what I've read, and see what my friends rate the books they've read.  For example, I saw Liz had given a book a good rating, so I clicked on it, read the synopsis and decided to add it to my "want to read" shelf.  Here's my profile if you want to connect with me!
Good Reads!

3. Follow Reese Witherspoons Book Club!

"One Day in December" I found on her book club website, along with another book I got for Christmas.  Here's the link: Hello Sunshine

4. Google

Quite possibly the greatest invention on the internet.  I google stuff probably at least 10 times a day.  So google whatever you're interested in.   Example, if you're in your 20s, you could google books every 20 something should read.   Here's one I found  Or, if you're into health, google health books, fashion, top fashion books.  The list is endless!

Leave me a comment of your favorite book so I can check it out!

I'm currently reading "The Tattooist of Auschwitz".

How to: Start the New Year Healthy

Happy New Year Y'all!
I'm beyond excited to kick off 2019 and make it better than last year.  2018 was one of the most difficult years I've experienced, (next to 2010/2011, if ya know ya know) but I'm ready to move forward and conquer some of the goals I've set for myself.   I personally do not believe in resolutions, but I definitely believe in goals!  One goal on my list, and I'm sure on many others as well, is health.

I am in no way, shape, or form, a go to health person.  However, I do have several tips and tricks that work well for me to achieve my fitness/health goals, that I think could help you too!


  • Drink Water:  The first thing I do in the morning is down a glass of H20.  If you're feeling frisky, add some apple cider vinegar to it ;) But ya have to cut the soda out people.  I promise it's possible.  I went from drinking 2 Mountain Dews a day in high school, to 1 a day in college, to hardly any since my senior year of college, which was 3 years ago.  I occasionally pop one open when I'm craving that fizz but I cant even finish a whole can anymore because it's now too sweet for me.
