Happy Solar Eclipse Day everyone! How cool is it that we get to experience a total eclipse? I’m so excited about it, and since it’s a pretty big deal & even a part of history here in the U.S., I decided to dedicate an entire post to it. I’m taking this opportunity to relate the eclipse to some inspirational OOTD’s – an all white look (daylight), a B&W style (the transition into the dark), and then of course an LBD to represent the total blackout that we’ll experience today!
I thought this would be a great way to showcase some really chic looks since black/white outfits are so classic and high-end, and I’m sure you all know by now that I’m a huge fan of wearing lots of B&W in my personal style (with a pop of red on the lips of course)!
Happy Friday girls! Friday means it’s time for me to answer some FAQs that you all have been asking about lately! Are you all enjoying this Q&A series? If so (or if not), let me know so we can all stay on the same page — I want to provide you all with content that you actually enjoy reading and find beneficial or inspiring!
This week I’ve been thinking – a lot. I’m not really sure what’s sparked all of this (deep) thought all of a sudden, but it’s inspired me to share some of my personal reminders with you guys. Some of these things are what I’ve been reminding myself of for awhile now, so I hope that you find them helpful and inspiring in some way.
Being 20-something can sometimes be hard because a lot of us are in transitional stages of life. Starting college, dating, applying for internships, graduating from college, moving away from home, getting that big girl job, getting married, starting a family … a lot of life’s events happen during your 20’s (for a lot of us). And if all of that isn’t already overwhelming enough, we also have a million other distractions in this lovely technological world that we now live in. It’s easy to get distracted from the things that matter most in your life (especially when this busy lifestyle we all live starts to take over), so hopefully, these little reminders will help you as much as they’ve been helping me recently.
Happy Friday babes! Today I’m answering 3 popular questions all about organization, my favorite curling wands, and the type of camera I use for all of my pictures! I really love these FAQ Friday’s because I love hearing from you all and getting to answer some of your most asked questions!
It’s Thursday, which means we’re one step closer to date night – woot woot! Teej and I take it pretty seriously. That’s the one thing that we promised ourselves early on that we would never let go of, so every Friday and/or Saturday, we go out for date night (and I love it). I think one of the most important pieces of advice that we have ever received was to never stop ‘dating’ each other … even once you’ve been married for 50 years. Whether it be date nights, movie marathons, having the car door opened for you, surprising each other with random gifts or simply just flirting, it’s so important to keep the spark alive in every day life – not just on the special occasions.
Being a warm weather, bikini-loving, summer kind of girl, you could say that I’m a little sad to see the season start coming to an end … especially since this has been one of the most fun summers that TJ and I have ever had together! You may remember this post from a few months ago where we announced a big purchase we made together – a boat! And boy have we gotten our money’s worth so far! We had always wanted one of our own, but it had never seemed like the right timing. Actually, our purchase was (kind of) spur of the moment when we finally decided to just go for it – and it was one of the best decisions we’ve made this year! If you follow along with me on Instagram Stories and Snapchat, then you have probably noticed that TJ and I have been at Norris Lake almost every weekend the past few months. Needless to say, spending time with our friends and family on the boat has been a blast this summer, and I’ll forever cherish the memories we’ve made.
Even though I’m sad to see summer go, I am looking forward to football season – it’s like stepping into another world when it becomes football time in Tennessee. If you’re a Knoxville native, you know exactly what I mean! With that said, I am so thrilled to announce that I am partnering with my big orange alma mater and Vol Gear throughout the fall to bring all of my LNL readers lots of game day outfit inspiration, tailgating ideas, tips on how to use your Vol Gear year-round, etc etc etc. I hope that you’ll follow along with me over the next few months as I show you all around my ole stomping grounds that are a big part of who I am today, while I share some really great tips and tricks along the way!
I realized that it’s been awhile since I’ve shared some of my favorite products that I have been using lately or things that I have been buying (and loving), so I decided to do a full post for you guys about my current favorites (and it’s so totally random)! I’m including a little bit of everything – fashion, beauty, home, etc.
We made it through another week you guys! I think we deserve a cheers and a drink to that … 😉
It was a super busy one for me, but it made it all go by really fast! I was planning out the rest of my content calendar for August today, and I’m so excited to tell y’all that I have some really cool and exciting posts in store for the rest of the month. I hope you all will like them all as much as I do!
Yesterday, on IG stories, I asked you guys to go ahead and send in your questions for FAQ Friday, and I got such a large response (which I’m so happy about). I’m glad you all seem to really like this series and enjoy getting some questions answered.
The response was so large that I’ll have to save a few of the questions you all sent in for next week’s FAQ Friday post, so if your question isn’t answered today, be sure to check back again next week!
If you haven’t already noticed, there’s been a pretty steady trend in my sunglasses game this season. If you know me at all or if you’ve been following me for any amount of time, you probably know that I am literally obsessed with sunglasses in all shapes, styles and forms. It’s rare that you will ever see me out without shades on (or at least in my hair). Yes, I’m the girl who puts them in my hair when I’m having a bad hair day and a hat just isn’t working. 😉 Sometimes, even if it’s dark outside which I know is crazy, but hey, it works for me!
This season, I’ve been really into the colorful, reflective lenses. I’ve partnered with DIFF Eyewear to showcase this trend that I’m so in love with because the shades that they offer truly fit my personal style. Even if I wasn’t a DIFF Partner, I can guarantee you all that I would be buying almost all of their sunglasses because I just love them that much. And more importantly, I’ve fallen in love with what the company is all about. I’m all for mixing fashion and charity, so when I found out that every single time a pair of DIFF glasses were sold, a pair is donated to someone in NEED … I was all in.
