How To Style Statement Earrings

I am having a serious earring moment! Long gone are my days of big, bold statement necklaces and in are the bright, vibrant pairs of earrings... ok who am I kidding? I still wear statement necklaces too. However, I found myself shifting from necklaces to earrings because earrings match nicely with any neckline. On vacation,… Continue reading How To Style Statement Earrings

The Island Hopper On A Budget

This morning I went out the door and walked a half mile to Main Beach in order to board the Island Hopper (a shuttle to popular destinations around Amelia Island). I arrived at 11:10, which was perfect because the shuttle was boarding at 11:15. I waited, and waited, and waited... and finally called the Nassau County transportation services. "Yeah,… Continue reading The Island Hopper On A Budget

A Walk To Remember

It's hard to find yourself anywhere other than the center of the equation sometimes. In your small world of who you know, what you see, and how you feel, it's easy to get caught up in the "Me, Myself, and I" mentality. I found myself doing that this week. Even on vacation in Fort Walton, I… Continue reading A Walk To Remember

My 15 Minute Summer Makeup Routine

So I don't know about you, but during the summertime I get a little lazy with my makeup. I'm not sure if it's because my skin gets bronzy or because it's just soooo hot (in Kentucky we say it's humid, not hot)... But, anyways, I still like putting on a little bit of makeup because… Continue reading My 15 Minute Summer Makeup Routine

The Small Boutique You Need To Shop At This Summer

As a grade schooler I was always so excited to walk "the big halls" of the high school. I went to a K-12 school for a few years -- which is on the same campus my college is on (you can read more about my thoughts on that here) -- and there was one high… Continue reading The Small Boutique You Need To Shop At This Summer

Are Chacos Really Worth It?

Every time I wear my Chacos someone says, “I want a pair but they’re so expensive!” Chacos are typically $100+. There are different styles, and some range a little beneath the $100 mark, but even on sale you typically won’t find any style less than $50. With that being said, they are definitely an investment.… Continue reading Are Chacos Really Worth It?

50 Things To Do With The Kids You Babysit

This summer, I began a babysitting job. Now each babysitting experience is different, simply because each kid's personality is different. But whether you're a grandparent the kids are visiting with for weekend, a friend watching the kids one night, or a teenager babysitting a few days a week, it's easy to run out of things… Continue reading 50 Things To Do With The Kids You Babysit

A Little Bit About My Small Town College Life

In the county I have grown up in, everybody knows everybody; as of 2015, we only had around 15,600 residents. In the county seat (Wikipedia also ironically refers to it as the county's "largest city"), we have the option of choosing between three fast food chains and three locally owned restaurants. On weekends, there isn't… Continue reading A Little Bit About My Small Town College Life

Spread The Word To End The Word

I caught up with my best friend at dinner the other day. We have been on summer break (and I have been a high school graduate!) for about a month now, which was too long for us to go without hanging out. I showed her my new blog, and she asked me to make a… Continue reading Spread The Word To End The Word
