As we approach the third week of 2018 and I go back to school, I wanted to share what I plan to change and what I plan to keep in the new year. I know I have been gone for a few days, but to be honest I didn’t feel like blogging. I had nothing to write about and it’s been too cold to go outside and take pictures. 


  • this past semester was HARD and my grades were decent but I’ll tell you Econ (wtf was that??) really dragged me down and Accounting kicked my booty, even though I enjoyed it. I want to reboot and raise my gpa!!
  • look into joining and being a part of more organizations on campus
  • no b.s. in friendships, relationships and my own bs!! I’m not tolerating it


  • grow my blog more
  • continue to grow my instagram following to about 2,500 followers by the end of the year
  • I want to look into monetizing my blog
  • earning more money through affiliate links. It’s not all about the money but it’s definitely nice!
  • Blog at least once per week from here on out
  • Post an Instagram daily or at least every other day.
  • More Instagram stories
  • Bring my Facebook to 55 likes
  • And lastly get accepted into Like To Know It/ Reward Style
  • start my shop page on my blog


  • I got a Fitbit Zip for Christmas and have been wearing it everyday! I want to continue to use it to track my steps and water consumption!
  • I want to go above and beyond in my water intake and truly keep track of  how much I drink
  • Get back in the habit of working out and consistently work out. I plan on doing the BBG workout program, which I can write a post about
  • I want to continue to focus on having a healthy mind. This was a really big change for me last year with my anxiety and I want to continue working on it
  • growing with God
  • check on my friends more


  • I want to continue to save for a car of my own
  • Save 1,200 this year
  • Better manage money
  • Stop spending it all on food and adult beverages :'( OU is killing my bank account
  • Be MORE frugal, I have definitely improved, but there’s more work to be done

I would love to know your goals for the new year. Are you changing a lot or a little? Happy New Year!!

As promised, another New Year’s Eve outfit. This one is way more glam then this one but it depends on what you’re going for. This year I went for pants, as opposed to last year. I’m not sure if I’ll actually be going out for NYE, honestly I party enough at school, Cincinnati parties seem to get shot up and I prefer to bring in the New Year with my family. Just being honest haha!

Shop some more sequins below!! Don’t forget about my giveaway that ends on the 31st!

Hi everyone! I wanted to drop in and share a casual New Year’s Eve post. Last year I did a sequin skirt, which I’ll link here. I thought it would be fun to have a simple out and spice it up a bit. The velvet top is trendy and super cute and the necklace adds a glam element to the outfit. I’ll be sharing a more glam outfit later this week!

Hi everyone, I wanted to share some of my winter essentials today. Before I dive in though, have you guys noticed how much I suck at blogmas??..yikes. I thought it would be easier now that I’m on break, but nope! Anyway, I present my winter essentials!


I can’t go anywhere without my gloves when it’s chilly. As soon as it starts to cool down, I whip them out! I know people look at me crazy if it’s not that cold, but at least I’m warm!

Shop some here:

Soft Outerwear

Everyone has seen or owns a fuzzy sherpa item, they’re huge this year! I have one from Simply Southern! I love how soft and fuzzy it is! I also have this from Old Navy, it’s ridiculously warm! I love it and have been wearing to so much! It’s nice to have something comfy and cozy for the cold weather!

Shop some here:

Cozy Shoes

Obviously, shoes are very necessary, especially in the winter. I know some people love Uggs, and some people hate them, but I love mine! I also love cozy slippers and moccasins. I have hard wood floor, which can get nippy, so they’re nice for home as well. I just got these the other day!

I love a good hat, I’m always in one during the winter! There’s nothing worse than cold ears!

Such a great essential! My hands have been sooo dry lately, especially when I was a t school. It’s like I would put on lotion and it would absorb immediately, but my hands would still be dry.
