Bar Exam Time!!



Alright guys, this is it. I have to take the bar exam in two and a half weeks, which may sound like a while still but I am freaking out and I have so much still to study and memorize. I was going to try to blog until the end of the week before taking this hiatus, but I think I'm just going to have to do it now! So I will be back around the beginning of August and I'm excited about all the things to come. 

Here is my promise:

My blog is going to be better than ever once I get back! I plan to spend a lot of time sprucing things up, planning new guest posts, starting new blog series', finding the cutest clothes and brands to show yall, and I even already have a giveaway set up for when I get back at it! Yay!

So I'll see you ladies in a few weeks and cross your fingers for me!

(ps if you are a Dallas-based blogger, let me know! I'm moving to Dallas right after the bar and I'm planning a blogger meet up!!)

Monogrammed Car Decals


I'm hoping to get a new car sometime in the next few months (I need one badly), and I've been seeing precious monogrammed car decals on Pinterest!



Aren't they cute?! I would love to get one for my new car. I'm not one to put a lot of bumper stickers, but I think one well thought out decal can look really good. I did some research to find some cute decals and here were my findings:


Hook Design and Sinker- Only $4! I'm so into the glitter it's ridiculous.

I loooove the pink on this one! It would be so pretty on a white or black car. This one is from Gins Monogram Shoppe.


You guys... that bow!! This precious one is from the Etsy store Custom Vinyl by Bridge.

Okay I am clearly biased toward circle monograms, but here is a pretty script one too (from Southern Accent Design):


Which one do you guys like the best?

Have you guys ever seen more perfect, ladylike dresses? These beauties are from Camilyn Beth and I cannot get over them. They are a perfect blend of classy and fun... the scallops, ruffles, and sophisticated colors make them so classic, but the gold and sequins give them a little pow. I can imagine so many great places to wear these... drinks with friends, a night on the town, date night, a benefit party, you name it and these dresses will take you there in style!

Prep Travel: Iceland


What travel destinations are at the top of your list? One of my tops is Iceland. I have heard nothing but good things from the few people I've heard that have been there, and it looks so beautiful. Wouldn't it be so cool to see the Northern Lights?





Traveling to Reykjavik? I did some research on where to stay and what to do (though I can't personally vouch for any of these!):

Stay:

(Hotel Borg)

Eat and Drink:
Astro Bar (no website but it looks really cool)

(Grillmarkadurinn)

Do:

(Blue Lagoon)

This is just a jumping off point, but just researching this post has me seriously itching to get to Iceland now!

Beauty Products I've Tried Lately (+ Giveaway Winner)

I wanted to do a video post on these beauty products I've been trying lately so that I could just show them to yall, but I think I'm going to have to wait until I get a new computer and move into my new apartment before I can do videos! Just get excited for those... I am! 

I wanted to let yall know about a few beauty products I've tried lately, though, and what I thought of them:

1. Blow Pro Heat Is On Protective Daily Primer // I am a huge fan of Blow Pro products. I have hairspray, shampoo, conditioner, a shower cap, dry shampoo, and now the heat protectant. I don't know why I haven't been using one before, since I use heat on my hair pretty much every day. I'm not sure yet how well the product is working in terms of protection, but it smells good as all their products do, and doesn't weigh my hair down.

2. bareMinerals READY Bronzer // I ran out of my old bronzer so I decided to try out a new one and picked up this one from bareMinerals. I got it in the color "The High Dive," and it may be a little too dark for me. I usually like to wear some bronzer on the apples of my cheeks, but this bronzer is always too dark for me to do that. I like it fine, though I'm not sure it's my favorite bronzer I've ever had.

3. Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion // I've been using the UD eyeshadow primer forever and I love it. My eyeshadow used to get creased, but now it looks good until I take it off at night. This time I picked up the anti-aging formula, and I've excited about the fact that it is a primer and anti-aging product in one.

4. Moroccanoil Treatment // I finally caved and bought the Moroccanoil that everyone is always raving about and I can say... I love it too! It is definitely pricey, but I was not satisfied with my current de-frizzer and needed a new product. I wouldn't say the oil gets rid of all of my frizz but it just makes my hair so much softer, and I'm hoping putting it in while my hair is wet is also helping prevent some damage.

5. Stila All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner // I also needed a new eyeliner so I just chose a new one while I was at Ulta and ended up with this Stila liquid one in intense black. I think it is pretty good... it is easy for me to swipe on and the line it makes it not too wide or too thin. The line on my bottom lid is sometimes a little too wide, but that is probably my lack of liquid eyeliner skills. Overall, I'm a fan.

Have you tried any great new products lately?

Also, the winner of the May Designs Giveaway is Briana! Congrats... I'll be contacting you shortly!
