Happy Wednesday friends!

It's hard for me to believe that I have 16 days left until I graduate!! Time is going by way too fast and I just wish it would slow down a bit so I can soak it all in a little more. Today in honor of graduation season, I thought it'd be fun to share some graduation gift ideas with you all! I wanted to mix in some DIY ideas I've found on Pinterest along with some experiences and material gifts to cover all bases. Let's get started now, shall we?

Graduation Dress Ideas

Happy Monday friends!

Graduation season is upon us! If you followed me on Instagram then you may have seen on my Insta Stories that I was having THE hardest time finding a graduation dress. All of the dresses I tried on during my hunt either looked weird on, didn't go with my robe or were off the shoulder (which, we all know how I feel about OTS). In the end, I settled on an old Lilly dress that I had bought a couple years ago during the After Party Sale and have yet to wear.

6 tips on decorating your graduation cap

Images by Deeana Kourtney Photography

Graduation season is upon us! I think one of the most exciting things about graduation is decorating your graduation cap. My high school didn't allow us to decorate our caps, so I was especially excited this year when I got to decorate my college graduation cap. Also think my parents will appreciate the fact that they can easily spot their daughter in a sea of green during graduation.Whether you're about to be a high school graduate or college graduate, I wanted to share some tips I learned along the way when decorating my cap to help make the process a little easier for you. So, let's get started now, shall we?

Follow your dreams

Styling_lilly_pulitzer_dress

Happy Friday friends!

With my graduation date approaching soon, the question everyone seems to be asking is "what are you doing after graduation?" If you're a college senior then you know this question all too well. Heck, even if you're just in college you'll get bombarded with this question. I get it, people want to know what your plans are and it's a great conversation starter, but I honestly dread this question. 

Why? Because I still have no idea what I'm doing.

Happy Tuesday friends!

I hope you all are doing well! If you follow me on Twitter then you may hear me "freak out" from time to time on my Instagram theme. I know having the "perfect" Instagram theme is a major first world problem, but it is such a fun way to display all of your photos in an aesthetically pleasing way. Today I wanted to share some of my favorite apps I use to edit my photos and put together my Instagram theme.

Wedding Season

Wedding season is upon us! It seems so crazy to me that I'm getting to the age where several people I know are getting engaged/married. I mean, didn't we just graduate high school like yesterday?? I attended my first wedding (well, the first time since I was in 4th grade) last year and since then it seems like I have been on a steady flow of wedding invites.

Protecting your eyes in style + GIVEAWAY


I hope you all are doing well! If you're a college student like me (or a blogger, or both!) then you spend a good amount of time staring at a screen. I get really bad headaches pretty frequently and I'm sure that most of it come from having my eyes strained from staring at a screen for long periods of time.

Current Favorite Hair Products


Happy Wednesday friends!

I hope you all are doing well! Today I'm sharing a round-up of my current favorite hair products! I had mentioned on Instagram stories (which, by the way, if you're not following me you should!) that I have been really into trying out different hair products lately.  I had mentioned before in my previous hair posts that I am pretty low maintenance when it comes to my hair, but I have found some really great products that I have been using almost daily!
