July Book Review

Now that I am done with school, I feel like I have so much more time on my hands to start reading again. When I was in school I had a crazy amount to read already from all my class textbooks on top of my homework, projects, exams, work, and all my other responsibilities that I felt like I never really had time to read just for fun.  I would always read books during the summertime or on vacations but would never have the time to during the school years or anytime else really.  But now that I am done with school for good, I’ve tried to make it a goal to read more regularly now that I have the time to!

I recently finished reading Rachel Hollis’ book Girl, Stop Apologizing, and immediately wanted to share it on my blog because it is SO inspiring and motivating.  I feel like it’s one of those books that everyone needs to read to help stay motivated to achieve any big goal or dream of yours that you may have and to go at with confidence.

Nordstrom Sale Public Access: Cute Items Still In Stock (+ Blog Life Update!)

It’s no secret that this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary sale has been super popular because of all the cute items available for fall, as always things have been selling out insanely fast.  I know that it’s practically expected for fashion and style bloggers to cover content for the sale because of the sale’s success each year, and as the sale has been going on for about a week and a half now, I know I’m a bit late to the game, but wanted to share my reasoning with you all first before jumping in to my finds!  Also, be sure to look out for a little update I’ll be sharing in regards to my blog life!

Work Wear Wednesday

One of my favorite workwear trends in the summertime is pairing block heels or high heel pumps with skinny jeans because of how the high heel shoe instantly dresses up any outfit you’re putting together.  While we have had a lot of rainy days this summer in Seattle, we have also had some insanely hot days as well and I’ve been wearing so many tanks to work on those hot and humid summer days.

I don’t know about you, but whenever I am putting an outfit together with my high heels and skinny jeans, it always reminds of that one scene out of The Devil Wears Prada when they’re showing all of these ladies walk to work along the streets of New York in their high heels and cute stylish work outfits.  10 years later and it’s still giving me all the workwear inspo haha.

My Go-To Summer Makeup Products

The summer months are my favorite for so many reasons, one of them, in particular, being out in the sun on warm and sunny days or by the water.  Because of the amount of time we spend in the sun or at the pool/beach during these months, I like to keep a fresh and natural face of makeup that lasts.  So today, I will be sharing some of my favorite go-to makeup products that I use on a regular basis throughout the summertime.  These can all be shopped at the end as well if you’re interested in any of these products!

23 Things I’ve Learned in 23 Years

I know you all are probably not used to seeing a blog post from me on the weekends, but today is officially my 23rd birthday and, because of that, I wanted to share 23 things I have learned over my 23 years of life so far.  I always love seeing these kinds of posts from other bloggers, and, honestly, I just love looking back on these kinds of posts! I can’t wait to look back on this post a couple years from now and see what my life is like then compared to now or how I might have changed and/or thought differently.

Now that I am turning 23, I am really starting to feel like an adult, and it’s a super weird feeling that also really excites me.  I guess because I just finished school, I still had somewhat felt young or like a young adult, and now that I am out of school and working a full-time job, I feel kind of old tbh haha.  I know that 23 is a young age, but now that I am officially adulting, it just gave me those feelings and it really inspired me to write this post and share my life thoughts and how life really is too short.
