Haul: Forever 21 + Nail Polish

Hi everyone! So, had placed an order on Forever21.com and it came in the mail around a week and a half ago. I’m sorry I didn’t have this up usooner, but I’ve been super busy with work. Now, I have more time though since my work is officially over for the summer! Anywho, I just wanted to show you the things that I purchased from Forever 21 and the one thing I bought from the drugstore.

Lifestyle: Things to Do, Places to Go

Note: This is the first post in Lifestyle portion of my blog. Enjoy!

Many people have a list of things they want to do and places they would like to visit before they die. It is infamously known as a bucket list. Well, lately I’ve been giving a lot of thought to all of those things that I want to do and all the places I’m dying to travel to. A part of feeling accomplished and satisfied with your life is knowing that you got the opportunity to truly enjoy it and knowing that you actually took advantage of these opportunities. In other words, at any point in your life you should be able to say, “I feel really good about myself. I’m living my life the way I want and I’m very happy right now.”

A lot of the things on my bucket list that I have already began to create consist of one thing that makes me extremely happy every time I talk about it with someone: TRAVELING. After all, I wholeheartedly believe that whatever is on your list should reflect what you love or what you’re passionate about. Anywho, I had already started to develop my “bucket list” around a year ago, but I wanted to post it here to share it with anyone reading my blog and to have it some place where I won’t lose it.  Hope you guys enjoy!

  • Take a cooking class in Rome, Italy.

  • Visit all 7 Natural Wonders of the World.

  • Visit all 7 New Wonders of the World.

  • Snorkel at the Great Barrier Reef.

  • Travel through Italy – from north to south.

  • Visit Auschwitz Birkenau.

PLEASE, share some of the things on your bucket lists with me in the comments below! I would love to read them.

Trend Alert: High-Low Skirts/Dresses

It is without a doubt that the high-low hemline is IN for this summer. It’s everywhere! Have you ever had a hard time deciding between wearing a mini skirt or a maxi skirt or between a mid-length dress or a maxi dress? Well, high-low skirts and dresses serve as a great compromise. Think of it as having the best of both worlds! The unique hemline adds a flirtatious feel to these clothing items, allowing for you to show off your legs in a new, eye-catching way. Paired with a nice pair of heels, your outfit can instantly be transformed into one suitable for a dressy occasion – maybe a first date? OR wear your high-low skirt or dress with a good pair of sandals or wedges for a more casual feel. Below are two ideas for styling both a high-low skirt and dress:

Nail of the Day!

After a hectic and stressful week at work, I decided to give myself a little spa treatment today and paint my nails! Here is the finished product:

On my nails: China Glaze’s “Peachy Keen”

I absolutely love coral for summer, because it’s so bright and fun and adds a little something extra to anything you’re wearing. It also goes well with pretty much any color! (I actually love coral any time of the year. It’s one of my all-time favorite colors). So what are your go-to polishes for the summertime? Let me know in comments below!

Stay classy!
