After my recent try-on haul with my latest Walmart Fashion finds, you guys blew up my DMs: “Can I say obsessed?” … “Only $19?!” … “This is a must have!” All these thoughts have been running through my mind as well! There’s nothing I love better than great clothes at great prices. I have been a fashion lover since the days of rushing to Walmart to get the latest Mary Kate and Ashley clothes and jewelry when I was in elementary school. 😉 Now here I am, shopping online and finding some of my favorite brands and cutest styles at where else but WALMART!
HAPPY PLACE: Noun – A physical environment characterized by well-being and contentment.
Where is your happy place? I have a few that give me a constant smile and butterflies in my stomach, but none are as magical as Walt Disney World. My first trip to Disney World was when I was 4 years old. This was before fast passes and waiting in line was just part of the process. You can ask my mom because she waited with me in the 2-hour long line for Splash Mountain multiple times (God love her soul). I have been hooked ever since. Every trip to Walt Disney World since then has been better than the one before. Even seeing a picture of the parks and the food and the rides makes my heart skip a beat. I have told you all of this so that you can try to imagine my excitement and even my apprehension when I received an email from a Disney staff member requesting that we collaborate …
Y’all know that I am all about mixing high and low-end pieces when it comes to outfit styling. I love a good deal as much as the next girl, and I think it’s so important to note that you can still put together trendy looks this spring and summer without breaking the bank! Y’all may not believe this, but one of my favorite places that I’ve been finding some affordable fashions lately is WALMART.com! Walmart Fashion actually has so many styles and price points to choose from, so everyone across America can achieve their ideal outfits this season by mixing in new, affordable pieces from Walmart’s marketplace …
I don’t know how many of you have been to New York City but I have been a few times, which is certainly not enough because my love for the City can’t be measured. One of the things I have learned from my previous trips is that ‘where you stay’ certainly has a huge impact on the success and enjoyment of your trip. I have stayed in suites, regular hotel rooms, and what seemed to me to be a closet during one trip LOL, but none can compare to my last trip when I stayed at The Lexington Hotel, Autograph Collection. This hotel has so much to offer and has something for everyone: business travelers, families, couples, groups … and fashion bloggers. 😉
The Lexington was built in 1929 and has maintained the style and architecture of that period. The energy of this midtown location, the Art Deco building itself, and the star-quality of guests – past and present – define this hotel.
When I learned that my friend, @heatherpoppie, and I (along with our fan club (our moms!)) were going to get to stay at this hotel during New York Fashion Week (Feb. 2019), I was beyond thrilled …
2019 has been off to a very adventurous start for me with lots of trips to new places. Travel has always been one of my favorite things to do, for as long as I can remember. I grew up going from state to state for competitive cheer competitions when I was younger, so I guess that’s where my love for travel really began. Ever since then, I’ve always loved exploring new places and experiencing new cultures. Thankfully, TJ loves getting away as much as I do — we even got engaged on the opposite side of the country in California — so we try to travel as much as we can right now before expanding our family.
As a “fashion blogger”, I never really put much thought into sharing my travels more in depth with you all until late last year when I received an overwhelming amount of emails/messages after a few of the trips I went on … “Where did you stay?” … “Where did you eat?” … “What is there to do?” … “How’s the shopping there?” … “Top recommendations?!” … “Must sees??” … The questions continue to flood in for every trip that I go on even to this day, so I recently decided to start sharing my travel diaries with you all more in depth! I shared a few travel posts last year on my blog, and you all seemed to really enjoy them. So, this year after each trip, my plan is to share all the details with you all, in case you and your family ever decide to visit the same places I’ve been to. I want this site to continue being a helpful resource for you in all aspects of life — whether that be fashion, makeup finds, travel deets, day-to-day life, tips/tricks, etc. I hope you’ll enjoy this series over the next year and will continue to follow along with each upcoming getaway!
Now before we get started on my first trip recap of 2019, I do want to point out something important that I wish more people in this industry would share with their audiences …
New Year’s Eve gives you the perfect excuse to dress to the nines and wear all the sparkles and sequins! It’s such a fun night around the entire world, so why not take the opportunity to dress up and celebrate another amazing year with your friends and family?!

One question I get quite often is how to make dresses and skirts appropriate for the winter weather, and I get it! I’m a cold-natured gal myself, so I am always freezing anywhere I go, especially in the winter months. But, of course, I want my outfit to still look cute and trendy. My best advice for this is …
For as long as I can remember (actually, I guess since before I was even born), my family has always had matching Christmas pajamas to wear on Christmas Eve. It’s a tradition of ours that I love so much, and I don’t ever want to let it die. It started with my sister and I matching when we were younger. We would open our jammies on Christmas Eve night and wear them over to our grandparents’ house on Christmas morning. The tradition still stands strong, and now that we’re married, our hubbies get to join in on the fun! (They’re good sports. 😉 ) Okay, who am I kidding? TJ and Josh love the tradition, and we all plan to carry it on into our own families as well once we have children of our own!
Since I know that many other families take part in this fun tradition as well, I decided to round up some of the cutest, most affordable, and comfy holiday PJs that could work for the entire family …
Dressing up for the holidays can be so fun and exciting! However, it can also be somewhat overwhelming when it comes to finding the perfect dressy look for holiday parties, New Years Eve, etc! This year, I’ve stumbled upon so many amazing holiday dresses and outfits that would be perfect for all of your upcoming events, so I’m rounding up the best sellers that will turn heads at every party you attend! Below, you’ll see a ton of options to choose from, whether you are dressing for a cozy, low key get together, a fancy Christmas event, New Year’s Eve or even a black tie holiday wedding. There are many options to choose from, and I actually have most of these in my closet at the moment, so I can highly recommend them!
Below, I’m also including a few photos of me wearing some of my favorite holiday looks, so you can get a better picture of what they look like on. 🙂 If you see something you like, simply click on the link, and you’ll be directed straight to the retailer to purchase! Most of these retailers allow you 2-3 day shipping if needed, so you can receive your items within the week. Let me know if you have any questions, and happy shopping!
I’m so excited to introduce you all to my sister, @thebritwilliams, as she takes us on a trip down memory lane. From her wedding day almost 8 years ago, to this very day celebrating Baby Williams at her favorite venue, the Capitol Theatre has simply become part of who her family is. Keep reading to take a look inside her special wedding day and recent gender reveal!
Don’t leave me alone with the presents … especially when Tula is involved!!! It’s my weakness! If you have been following along with me for awhile, then you probably already know this. Tula’s skincare line is full of the best skincare products that I’ve ever gotten my hands on.
Prior to Tula, I had a nightly regimen, but I hardly ever used it because instead of looking forward to washing my face and using the products, I actually pretty much dreaded it. Ever since I started using Tula about a year ago, I have genuinely started looking forward to washing my face morning and night. Something about their products is just so quick, straight-forward, easy, and leaves your skin feeling better than ever. I honestly love EVERY single product that I’ve tried so far, and I think that is saying a lot since I’m really picky when it comes to beauty and skincare.
