So, sorry I’ve been a little MIA the past couple of days. Thursday I worked almost a 12 hour shift as backstage manager for night one of NWA Fashion Week, and spent yesterday trying to recover! My feet may be destroyed (don’t wear new heels when you’re on your feet all day&night), but it was so worth it. Here are some behind the scenes looks at the setup on night one:
Setup for the circular runway:
Runway from behind the DJ booth:
Beauty room where L’oreal provided a TON of makeup:
I didn’t get to see the show since I was backstage helping line up and push out models, but it was an amazing experience! There’s no feeling like being backstage at a show – SO much fun!
So my absolute favorite trend for this spring is all of the pastel colors! They’re my favorite colors anyway, and I love seeing them showing up all over the stores this season. Here are some of my favorite picks!
So it’s time for my second installment of spring break essentials! Be sure to ready my post on spring break beauty products if you haven’t already.
This time I’m featuring bags. I’m normally not a huge bag girl, and I rarely even carry a purse with me out! I have a little wallet attached to my keys and that’s normally all I require. That being said, traveling is a totally different story – especially with a spring break trip! Going to the beach during the day, going out to dinner at night, all the traveling… there are so many different things you might need! Here are the essential bags you might need for your spring break.
1 – A good travel bag is essential for any trip! A weekender bag or large tote works great as a carry on on a plane or to stay with you in a car. Pack all your products you need on hand in it!
2 – You also need a nice purse to use going out at night or for daily use! I always go for crossbody bags since I’m paranoid about leaving purses behind (which I’ve done before), but there are so many cute bags to choose from!
3 – Last but not least, a beach bag is a necessity! I would definitely go for a cheaper, large tote, since it will be in the sand and beaches can always be a little risky for purses. A great place to keep sunscreen and beach towels!
What bags are your favorite for spring break travel?

So I don’t think it’s any secret that I have a history of being sick A LOT. I’ve had almost constant stomach problems for the past couple of years and finally went to the allergist and the results really surprised me. Turns out I’m allergic to milk, soy, wheat, AND egg! My first reaction was… so, what do I eat?
There are a ton of things that I’m really upset that I can’t eat, to be honest. BUT, there are still a lot of allergen free options. So this new discovery kind of alters my challenges a tiny bit, so this week I’m going to feature a few allergen-free recipes that looks amazing! Maybe I’ll make videos about making some? Tell me what you think! Just click the pictures for the recipes.
Do you have any food allergies? Any recipes? Feel free to share!
The thing I’m MOST excited about for spring is wearing warm weather shoes again! It’s such a pain to have to make an effort to put on socks and boots and laces every time I go outside during winter (and don’t even get me started on putting on a jacket), so I’m counting down the days to slipping on sandals and all the cute spring shoes again!
Charlotte Russe is one of my favorite places to look for shoes, especially since they always have great prices and great sales! Here are some of my favorite new arrivals for spring shoes.
So today I’m talking about spring break essentials for beauty! These are things that might seem obvious, but can be super easy to forget in the excitement of taking a fun trip. & Who else is excited for spring break?!
1 – A lot of sunscreen! There’s nothing worse than getting burned in the middle of a weeklong trip where you’re outside almost all day. You’ll still get tan – I promise!
2 – A good moisturizer! Opt for one with SPF built in, so you don’t have to put oily sunscreens on your face and risk breaking out.
3 – Waterproof mascara! I would definitely go with a cheaper one, too, in case you lose track of it. If you have waterproof mascara, you can go in the water or sweat without worrying about getting raccoon eyes!
4 – A LOT of chapstick! Chapstick will keep your lips from getting completely dried out or burned – and we all now how fast chapstick disappears! So I’d take a whole pack.
So each week until spring break, which is 4 weeks away for me, I’m giving myself challenges to get spring break ready fitness-wise. Y’all can be my accountabilibuddies! Feel free to let me know if you’re doing them with me
1. No fast food
2. Workout 4 days/week (I’ve been doing Insanity with my sister and LOVE it)
3. Eat one fruit or vegetable with every meal
I’m SO excited to finally get this break from school more than anything. We’re looking at either taking a cruise or finding a cheap flight to somewhere and winging it! Do you have any suggestions for cheap spring breaks?
School just keeps getting in the way of my blogging time! What a pain haha. But last night after I got out of class at 730 pm (ugh) my fiance had an amazing date night planned for us. It was the perfect way to end my stressful day!
