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.
The end of the #NSale is quickly approaching, y’all! I’m sure a lot of you may be tired of hearing about all of the Nordstrom madness by now, but it’s not going to last much longer. The sale ends on August 6th, and all the items that are on sale now will then go back up to full price … Boo! With that said, I wanted to round up the best of the best remaining in stock items that are UNDER $50!! There are still some really amazing deals and super stylish pieces left, so take a look at them below and of course, let me know if you have any questions at all. 🙂
Happy Friday you guys! This week has been one of the busiest weeks I’ve had in awhile, so I’m pretty stoked to see the weekend. The weather here in Knoxville is supposed to be so hot and sunny all weekend, so I see some time on Norris Lake in our future!
I’m so happy to hear that you all loved the makeup tutorial that I posted in yesterday’s blog post – I was honestly nervous about what y’all would think about it, so to hear some positive feedback made me so excited! Today, of course, I’m continuing my FAQ Friday series and answering some more of the popular questions that I get asked all the time .. enjoy!
Get excited you guys! The time has finally come where you get to sit & listen to my southern accent and see me make a fool out of myself attempt my very first video tutorial. 🙂
Believe it or not, the most requested post that you all have been asking me to do is a makeup tutorial, which is funny because I really don’t feel like I’m a pro at makeup or anything like that! However, I finally sat down and filmed one of my go-to glam makeup routines, and I just have to say that it was rather eye opening … I really never knew how much work YouTubers had to put into their tutorials and vlogs!! Major props and respect to you all if you’re a vlogger reading this! I know I’m obviously very new to the YouTube game, but shew it’s not easy y’all.
I have to say … I was blown away by all the love you guys shared after yesterday’s blog post. Thank you all so much for those of you who commented or messaged me! All of you messages mean the world to me, and I love (more than anything else) getting to hear when one of my posts make a difference in your lives or impact you in a special way. I so appreciate all of your all’s continuous support & love every day!
On a lighter note, I want to switch gears and share my top 5 wardrobe MUST HAVES with you all. I find that each of these five pieces are on constant repeat in my everyday style (and when I mean constant, I mean some of them are even on weekly repeat y’all) … So, I thought it may be helpful to share these with you guys so that if you are missing any of these items in your own wardrobe, you could keep an eye out for them the next time you go shopping! I want to make it clear that I’m not necessarily pointing out certain brands as my must-haves, but more importantly, the actual articles of clothing. Let’s get started!
Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt compelled to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to God’s holy people. -Jude 1:3
I’ll be completely honest with you all … the past couple weeks or so has been kinda rough for me in this whole blogging world. Putting out fires on top of fires, going back and forth (x60) with brands to nail down serious details for partnerships, trying with all my might to get my inbox under 200 emails (and then by the end of the day, I’m back to the number I started at), working from 8:30am and still having tasks on my to-do list when I ‘stop’ for the day at 10:00pm, balancing my time between the blogging world and my styling jobs, striving to stay strong when I read that mean comment or rude email, and worst of all … playing that evil comparison game. Yeah … it happens to me too. That feeling of ‘I’m not as on top of things as that girl’ or ‘How is her following growing SO much faster than mine?!’ or ‘Dang, I wish I could buy all of those items that that one blogger bought from the #NSale’ or ‘How did she get to work with a brand like that?’ or ‘Geez, am I ever going to get reposted on @liketoknow.it’s Instagram page?’ … but most of all, I’ve just been having a constant feeling of never. being. enough. And truthfully, it’s my own fault that I have felt this way …
I’m headed out of town today with my sweet sista, so follow along with us on our roadtrip! This time, it’s for work but a different kind of work than what you’re used to seeing me talk about. We’re taking it back to our ole stomping grounds and coaching some cheerleading .. where’s all my cheer ladies out there?! If you’re into that kind of stuff, be sure to follow along with me on my Snapchat (@peyton.baxter) and IG Stories. I’m excited to flash back to the past and come out of retirement for a couple of days!
I’ve been getting a lot more questions since I started this FAQ Friday series, which makes me SO excited because I love helping you all and getting to hear more of what YOU want to know about me, fashion, glam, LNL, etc. Let’s jump right in to today’s top questions!
It’s (almost) July 21st, which means that it’s time for the #NSale to go public!! Everyone will have access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale beginning tonight – more specifically, July 21st at 2:00AM CST. If you already have your eyes on a few pieces that you just can’t live without, you better make sure to set an alarm to wake up early and buy them ASAP because stock is going to start selling out faster than you can add it to your cart. Not kidding.
With that said, if you are a cardholder and have early access to the sale, make sure to go ahead and purchase all of the items you have your eye on at this time before it is opened to the public. I’ve made the mistake before of waiting too long, and now, I still don’t have that pair of booties that I wanted because they sold out quickly after the sale too. 🙁 Don’t make the same mistake I’ve made in the past!
I shopped the early access sale (read more on my top picks so far HERE), so I actually just received my first shipment of purchases. Since a lot of things are already selling out rather quickly, some of the pieces I ordered are on backorder and won’t be here for awhile, but in the meantime, I thought I would go ahead and share my personal reviews with you all about the items I’ve received so far. I was actually just trying them on randomly when I decided to snap a few iPhone pics to document and review for you guys…
I’m sure you all have noticed in most of my past posts that I am all about mixing high and low fashions, meaning I like to wear some pieces that are under $100 and super affordable, while also accessorizing with a few higher-end pieces that are considered my more ‘luxury’ items. But … did you catch that key word? Accessorizing.
I’ve always said that it’s more important to save on your clothing and splurge on your accessories, shoes and handbags. Why? Because clothing items are typically so trendy that if you spend a fortune on them now, chances are they will be out of style this time next year and you will have wasted a lot of money. Most accessories, shoes and handbags – on the other hand – are more likely to stay in style for a longer period of time because they are classic and timeless. Take these black leather pumps for instance … since I have owned them, I’ve worn them too many times to count and a classic black pump won’t be going out of style anytime soon.
