Happy New Years Eve beautifuls! Today I’m going to get personal because what better time. I’m gonna start with the good and go into some of the struggles that I’ve encountered this year.
At this time last year I was in the BVI’s with my boyfriend Victor! We will be together 2 years on the 30th and have grown so much as a couple this year. I also managed to make straight A’s this semester while making new friends, balancing a social life and my blog! Because of you amazing people, I have grown my instagram from around 1,000 to 10,400. I also got to study abroad with Victor and a group of amazing classmates in different majors and had my first internship with LINJA shoes. Victor and I got to travel to Paris, Zurich, Malaga and other cool cities in Europe!
On a sadder note, the beginning of the year wasn’t the best for me. I moved out of my sorority before winter break leading up to 2017. I don’t feel the need to go into detail but it was 100% for the best and I am so happier now to be out of it. Long story short I was dealing with anxiety and depression at the time and my grades and social life suffered because of it. I was also very anxious about myfuture and what would happen after college which put stress on my relationship and myself. During my study abroad trip in Amsterdam, my bunny passed away and my dad had a stroke. He was treated right away and is doing great now but needless to say I was a mess for a while.
In conclusion, This year was full of highs and lows but I have learned a lot from each experience. I am ready to take 2018 head on and see what the next chapter of my life has in store.
When it comes to a statement piece, I gravitate towards bright colors and SPARKLE! Bold prints, fun textures, and vibrant colors are my favorites, but anything sparkly or shiny tops the list. The bodysuit I am wearing was picked out by my best friend, Kelsey at Urban Outfitters, and is one of my favorites right now! It’s a beautiful mauve-y pink shade with red and silver sparkle detailing and is so fun for the holiday season! I paired it with my shiny pink loafers and a cream colored Tobi sweater when the weather got a little chillier. For a going out look, this bodysuit pairs perfectly with a skirt, some heels and some fun chokers!
Today’s post is in celebration of Pantone’s color of the year 2018, Ultra Violet! I am so excited to share this beautiful dress that Mint Julep Boutique gave me which happens to be perfect for the holidays. I am in love with the gorgeous sheer lace detailing and V cut. It is such a classy and elegant gown and the color is much more stunning than I possibly imagined. I wore this dress to my boyfriend’s winter semi formal party and received so many compliments! I cannot recommend it enough for your next holiday party or formal event! I paired the dress with my favorite lace up Badgley Mischka heels and some purple nails to match.

Hello Lovelies! Today I’m going to show you all a brand I just ADORE, Victoria Emerson! If you have been following me from the start you may have seen one of my previous posts on the Victoria Emerson Boho Cuffs which I will link here. But if you are new here, welcome and I hope you enjoy today’s post!
Victoria Emerson bracelets are not like any bracelet I’ve had before. The quality is amazing and each bracelet is beautifully handcrafted with real leather and beads. I’m also very impressed with the packaging! These bracelets come in a cute protective cases perfect for travel or a gift for friends or family.
Wearing these wrap bracelets is also very simple. They wrap around your wrist 5 times and are adjustable to different wrist sizes. You can wear one at a time or stack two or more which is my preference because the more bling the better right? You can also match the wrap bracelets with Victoria Emerson boho cuffs which I found to be so so cute! What I love most about these bracelets is the versatility. They can be worn with just about anything from class to a night out! And how perfect are these two with my shiny auburn sweater?! They are the perfect statement for my holiday outings this season.
Today I wanted to share a little about Bootaybag! You may have seen their super cute undies on your instagram feeds but in case you haven’t heard about this brand, let me tell you a little bit about them!
You can build your own bag by choosing two pairs of undies from the monthly styles and colors for only $12! I love this concept because it allows you to always have new undies for just a little over the price of your favorite Starbucks order! Another great thing about Bootaybag is that for every photo posted with the #undermatters, $1 is donated to the Melanoma Foundation.
The overall quality of the undies is amazing! They are sexy yet so comfy and don’t leave any panty lines. There is really no down side to this monthly subscription. You should all definitely give them a try!
Today’s post is in collaboration with Bootaybag but all opinions are my own.
