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?!
If you’re like me, I always love shopping for New Year’s Eve outfits, and this year there are sooo many good options to choose from. I rounded up a few of my favorites below to help you find the perfect look for you! From jackets to dresses to skirts to accessories, there’s a little bit of everything linked below … simply click on the image below that you would like to shop and you’ll instantly be directed to the retailer’s site!
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.

About a month ago, I loaded up with my girl, @heatherpoppie, and headed straight for Viva Las Vegas! We went for a blogger weekend meetup to connect with some of our friends in the industry, who we don’t get to see too often (since we all live in different parts of the country). We had such a BLAST (as you can tell in the photos below), and I got to hug the necks of old friends, as well as, meet a few new ones! This industry is so supportive and full of fun gals that I am forever grateful to […]
The orange leaves are falling, temps are dropping … there’s a crisp breeze in the air. The smell of pumpkin & cinnamon spice fills our homes. We’re preparing Thanksgiving feasts and making our lists for holiday shopping. It’s that time again! It’s (in my opinion) the best time of the year! And I don’t know about y’all, but this season instantly gives me all the cozy vibes. Whether I’m nestled in a warm blanket at home, sitting by the fire in fuzzy socks, or exploring the fall foliage in my favorite sherpa, I’m always one happy girl when I’m in my cozies!
TJ and I recently traveled to Hawaii for vacation, and it was absolutely amazing! It had been a place on our bucket list for years, and we knew we wanted to visit before starting a family. I had been to Oahu when I was in middle school, but TJ had never been to Hawaii at all so it was a must see for us! We didn’t realize it until we got there, but this vacation was actually the first trip (just the two of us) since our honeymoon over two years ago! Over the past couple of years, we have always traveled with family or friends as well, so it was nice getting away just the two of us again. We loved the special quality time!
We split our 10-day trip in half between Maui and Oahu (travel guide for Oahu coming soon). The first five days, we stayed in Maui, and WOW. Just wow! It is officially one of my all time favorite places I’ve ever traveled to. It’s an absolute dream, and everything there is so beautiful! The natural beauty of the entire island is like nothing I’ve ever seen before. It’s truly breathtaking! The relaxing beaches, fun adventures, and warm aloha spirit from Maui locals made us quickly fall in love with this tropical destination.
