Let's play CATCH UP: a vlog, pictures, and recent outfits!

HELLO EVERYONE! I have missed blogging so much - life has been crazy lately! I feel like always say that but unfortunately when I get busy at work and with other things, blogging tends to fall through the cracks. My grad school apps are due in DAYS and I am just ready to be done with it all. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are planning a great NYE. My best friend Jimmy is coming to visit me and gets in tomorrow - I am SO beyond ready to see him - I haven't seen him since April! We are planning a chill NYE - nothing too crazy in the works :) 

I wanted to share this video I filmed vlog style on Chritmas Eve - I share my outfit, makeup, my dogs in ATL, and my house!

Let me know if you guys like these types of videos that are more casual & vlog style :) 

I haven't blogged in a while, but like I always say - you can keep up with me through my instagram (I am addicted) 

Last weekend was my parent's 31st wedding anniversary and we had an amazing party at our house - I seriously haven't had that much fun in forever - it was beautiful and we partied till 4am! We had catering from our restaurant Luciano's, live music and mariachi - it was the BEST!

I took my GMAT last week (and did the best I have ever done!!! woo!) and then I got a sinus infection (boo), but thankfully was all better by the weekend thanks the the Z pack. My sister and I drove home to ATL for the holidays last Friday and stayed until yesterday so we had an amazing time off spending it with our family. I am so glad I took days off this year during Christmas! On the 20th, it was my baby sister's 21st B-DAY which I CANNOT BELIEVE!! She is my baby.. but not so much anymore! She had a great time on her bday - as every 21 year old should! ha! Christmas Eve is the day that we usually celebrate and we had an amazing dinner and fun time at my aunt and uncles house!

Life Lately: Last Week, Weekend + a Haul!

Happy Monday LOVES! Life has not been TOO interesting with me lately. I spend most of my free time studying and writing applications and I only have about four weeks left to finish everything so you bet your bottom dollar that I am working my butt off! I can't wait to be done with everything and actually know where I get into school and will be next fall!

Wearing this Zara sweater, a J.Crew scarf, and some Vince Camuto Booties | Friday morning, our company was a sponsor for Community Building Initiative's breakfast and it was such an inspiring event! | Saturday after studying for the whole day, we went to the ACC Championship game at BOA stadium - I invited my favorite Alexa & her husband Glenn to come with us & it was so great to hang out with them - they the sweetest!

November (and October) Beauty Favorites!

Happy Wednesday loves! I uploaded a (very) long beauty favorites video yesterday where I share every beauty product that I have been LOVING these past few months. I wasn't able to post an October video so that is why this one is extra product heavy :)

Life Lately: Thanksgiving and more!

Happy Monday everybody and welcome to December! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! It's been a little while since I have had a life update here, so I wanted to share some pictures from my last few weeks! :) I just got back from spending Thanksgiving in Atlanta, my hometown, with my family. It was so great to see family and just spend time relaxing with them.

I feel like I am always wearing the same pieces over and over again! I love my J.Crew Pixie Pants (I have 3 pairs) and I have been living in my Blank faux leather jacket these past months. Also - my entire family told me that I looked like Aladdin on Thanksgiving - kind of true?

I hope you all have a wonderful week! Stay tuned for lots of videos this week - I should have a huge OCT/NOV favorites video and my black Friday haul up this week! :)
