Something that I see is super popular this summer is denim skirts. While I spent my entire childhood trying to dodge the ones Mama bought me, I have been very reluctant to buy a pair even though they look so cute on everyone else! That’s how I got the idea for this DIY denim skirt! Instead of buying a brand-new denim skirt, why not make one out of an old pair of jeans
If you’re anything like me, you’re all about beauty on a budget. I love beauty products, makeup especially, but I also like spending my money on other things. Like food. Always food. So when I find awesome beauty products without having to break the bank, I am one happy girl.
Nothing says first day of summer like a fresh, healthy fruit salad. To me, summer days are all about lounging around, soaking up the sun (when there’s a pool or beach nearby preferably), and chowing down on some fresh fruits and veggies. Today, to celebrate the first day of summer, I’m combining a few of my favorite summer things and sharing my easy summer recipe for healthy fruit salad.

I don’t know about you but come summer, my skincare products change quite a bit. And so does my relationship towards heavy skin lotions or facial oils. There is a strict no, no for butters and anything of the sort. In my personal belief, summer is all about light, refreshing, cooling, and soothing. That’s why we’re making a fragrant facial toner with green tea extract. Let’s get to it!
After 22 years of living in North Carolina, I went to the Raleigh Farmers Market for the first time last week. I can’t believe I had never been before! As an avid market visitor, you would think that I would be all over this huge state farmers market. I guess I have just gotten caught up in selling at local markets and forgot to explore more.
With only a few weeks of Spring left, I decided it was time for Spring cleaning last week (Better late than never!) and while cleaning up my entire hours, I decided to make this DIY peony wreath for summer. Since it's right around the corner, I figured my house needed a little Summer touch and what better way than with pretty peony blooms?!
It's been about one month since my first "Must Have Products" blog post so that means it's time for another. This month, my focus has been all about getting ready for summer! And that includes skincare and a beach-ready swimsuit that I am in love with! Plus, I am still working my way through different products to use for the wedding, so one made this list as well.
Check out everything I've been obsessing over this month!
I took a week off from blogging last week to enjoy every last bit of my birthweek that I could! I turned 22 last Monday and for my birthday, my parents took me and Zack to the Outer Banks. I was dying to get out of town for a little while and we only live two and half hours away from the beach so we thought "why not?" We loaded up the car took off for a one night trip. While the water was freezing and way toO cold to even dip a toe in, I enjoyed getting some fresh air and just a tiny bit of sunshine.
Keep reading to see the highlights (meaning food and drinks) of our trip!
I am so excited to share my latest DIY project with you: my microwave cart turned bar cart! I am so in love with the way this turned out. It makes the perfect addition to my dining room.
This project came to be for a number of reasons. First, I had a whole bunch of liquor bottles taking up valuable space on my my kitchen counter. Second, my parents were getting rid of this old microwave cart and I thought it had potential. Third, I have an empty wall in my dining room that I felt needed something and I have always wanted a bar cart. Thus, this DIY project was born!
To celebrate the beginning of the newtravel section of my blog, I've been thinking that my first post should be about somewhere I love to travel and by what better way than sharing our engagement pictures?!
Zack and I took our engagement pictures earlier last month in the Mountains of North Carolina. It was where he proposed and one of our favorite travel destinations so it just seemed like the perfect fit for our engagement pictures!
