Happy Wednesday everyone! I’m finally here with my first Vegas post. Today I wanted to recap the trip overall. We will dive more into detail in future posts. ENJOY!

When I first started blogging, I admit I didn’t know what I was doing. I wanted a place to share my life and for it to be an outlet for stress that I was experiencing in pharmacy school. LITTLE did I know that I would meet some of my very best friends through blogging. This past week, I headed to Las Vegas for New Year’s with two of my blogging besties: Ricci + Jenn. About 4 months ago, Ricci got the (genius) idea to go see Maroon 5 on New Year’s Eve. Let me just say up front…MOST EPIC IDEA EVER. If you know me, you know my love for Adam Levine (along with the rest of America)!

Last Wednesday night, Ricci and I packed up and drove to Dallas to spend the night before catching our flight the next morning. Little did I know this was more sleep than I would get for the next 48 hours ;) We boarded our plane the next morning and headed for Vegas!

Flying in was CRAZY. I had no idea that the airport would be SO close to the Strip. It was right in the middle of all the action. We headed to our hotel and Jenn met us there. We had asked our friends for restaurant/tourist recommendations and so we decided on Gordon Ramsay BurGR for dinner.

It was delicious. After that, we headed to Mandalay Bay for the Maroon 5 concert. I don’t know that you need much of a recap of the concert…it was absolute perfection.

New Year’s Eve look:

Pink Blouse, Torrid (exact in red + gray & love this pink top)// Black Leggings, Target // Suede Booties, Sole Society & here // Necklace, Charming Charlie (under $20!) // Hairspray, Big Sexy Hair // Root Booster, Redken // Nail Polish, OPI “Alpine Snow”

We watched the fireworks from our hotel room that night and they were gorgeous. Several hotels put on a fireworks show at midnight! The next morning, we slept in pretty late because we had been out so late the night before. HELLO, we had to catch up with Jenn because we hadn’t seen her in like 2 years. (Next time, let’s not wait so long okay?!)

We decided to walk down the entire strip to see what all we could see. Let’s be honest…I was like a kid in a candy store at the shops inside the Bellagio. (We are talking Chanel + LV…I might have even picked up a little souvenir ;)) OH, by the way, the fountains outside the Bellagio are a must-see for the water show that happens throughout the day!

I’m sure several of you have heard of Serendipity in NYC, but there’s also one here in Vegas. We decided to hit it up that afternoon for some of the famous frozen hot chocolate. We all got different kinds to try!

We explored the Strip a lot more and walked through several of the hotels to check out the decor and such. That night, we got tickets to see “O” by Cirque du Soleil at the Bellagio. It was an amazing show. The entire set is over water & they literally fly from so high and dive into the water…MUST-SEE!

We ended up getting back to our hotel at around 1am and had to leave for the airport at 3am. It was a whirlwind trip but I wouldn’t change a thing. It was SO great to catch up with my friends and head to Las Vegas, because I had never been there before.

Be sure to check back for more details about my trip that include what you have to see and do!

XO,

Happy Wednesday, y’all! I hope everyone is having a good week. Since I’m rotations for pharmacy school, I am traveling a lot and practically living out of my car. We have to dress business casual and often dressier most of the time, so I have had to figure out a way to keep my jewelry organized and easily accessible when I’m on the road. Today I wanted to share my favorite way to organize my jewelry on-the-go.

I have tried several different bags, but the Kendra Scott line is definitely my favorite. She has pretty much thought of exactly what the bag needs to do to make the most out of the bag itself. (not to mention she is a total inspiration!)

Pink tassel earrings (BaubleBar) // Periwinkle studs (Kendra Scott) // Gold Studs (Gorjana) // Yellow tassel necklace (Kendra Scott)

The smaller sections (squares) in each of the bags are all removable and interchangeable. They attach to the bag with velcro, so you can easily move them around.

There is nothing worse than picking out the perfect outfit and deciding the best necklace to go with it all to find the necklace all tangled up when you get it out of your bag. I haven’t had that problem with these bags yet! #winning

Another way to keep your necklace from tangling is to thread it through a straw before packing it! That’s a major #lifehack right there.

Large jewelry organizer in teal (Kendra Scott) // Small jewelry organizer in Zebra (Kendra Scott, this print sold out but love this red which is ON SALE!) (obsessed with this bag, too!)

PS: don’t forget to sign up for the email newsletter from Kendra Scott! That have amazing sales that you don’t want to miss out on. ;)

What are your tips for keeping your jewelry organized on-the-go?

Hey everyone! Thanks for stopping by today. I wanted to tell you about my favorite recent discovery: Thirty-One.

Being in pharmacy school (AND also super busy), I am on the go ALL the time. Literally I barely get unpacked before I have to pack again to go somewhere. Let’s be honest…sometimes I don’t even get unpacked at all! When one of my undergrad teachers told me she was selling thirty-one gifts, I decided to take a look!

Now, I’m a total girly girl. You are reading the blog of someone who has forgotten her makeup on one occasion (TO A WEDDING) and also her jewelry on a different occasion. Both days were tragic…trust me. I never want to relive those days, so I was like I have to solve this problem. So, three products totally caught my eye when I was looking at the catalog.

monogrammed tote, tote, canvas tote

Canvas Crew Carry-All in Navy

jewelry storage, jewelry, travel jewelry storage

Uptown Jewelry Bag in Paisley Day

jewelry storage, jewelry, travel jewelry storage

Baubles & Bracelets Case in Navy Lotsa Dots (comes with three organza jewelry bags)

First of all, I am in love with how beautiful these prints are in person. The navy, paisley print, and dot print go PERFECTLY together. AND who doesn’t love a good monogram on their totes?

Second of all, what girl doesn’t want to have her makeup & jewelry all organized when traveling? I throw my makeup bag & all my toiletries in my tote AND GO. It’s the perfect size for all my stuff. And believe me…I have a lot of stuff to take when I’m going somewhere. (WHY does it take the same amount to pack for one week as four?!)

With all of this being said, if you would like to shop with my consultant, Heather, you can do that here! She is the SWEETEST and would love to help you.  I just want y’all to know that I only post things on my blog that I LOVE & think are worth it. I have taken all three of these items with me on every trip I’ve been on since I got them. (PS this post is not sponsored!)

I really love helping people women who have created a business from the ground up. Thirty-one allows women to work from home if they want & I LOVE THAT.

Thanks to Heather for showing me the Thirty-One way & helping me stay organized on the go!
