It’s FRIDAY…finally! I’m so thankful for a weekend. I have to work tomorrow but only for 4 hours. I plan on writing all of next week’s blog posts this weekend! I also am shooting some more outfit looks for you, so stay tuned ;) I wanted to share a weekly post where I recap what’s going on in my life, what I’m up to, what I’m loving, etc. I’ve decided to entitle it, “The Life Edit”. I want to eventually send out a newsletter but for now, I will be writing this weekly post! Let’s get started.

What I blogged this week:

life edit, cobblestone project, blush sweater, st louis eats, blush pink

Monday: Give Back with the Cobblestone Project

I introduced the Cobblestone Project of NW Arkansas. Be sure to read the post to find out how you can get involved and help those less fortunate.

Tuesday: St. Louis Eats

I shared three restaurants in St. Louis: scape, Cielo, and Broadway Oyster Bar. I included pictures that make my mouth water just thinking about it.

Wednesday: Blush Sweater + Floral Crossbody #ootd

The first of many outfit posts, I shared a blush pink sweater that will transition perfectly into fall. The floral crossbody I wore is under $70!

Thursday: Color Crush Blush Pink

I’m all about blush pink this fall, and I shared twenty items in this color that are great to add to your closet.

Where I’m going:

Next weekend I’m headed to Dallas to watch my beloved Cowboys play football. Last Sunday’s game was rough, but I’m looking for them to bounce back. I’m a HUGE Dallas Cowboys fan. I even had a dream that I met Dak Prescott! #iwish

Here are a few pictures from last year’s visit with my dad:

I’m planning on making a trip to Reunion Tower and the Arboretum while I’m there. I am also getting a blowout at the Drybar, so I will have to do some shopping at Northpark. I’m taking my grandpa along on this trip and the poor guy has no clue how much I love to shop! LOL

What I’m looking forward to:


I live for fall. It’s the best thing EVER. I love to cuddle up in blankets by the fire at night. I finally found the studded pumpkins at Target that I’ve been looking for! They come in white & black. They sell out super fast, so be sure to grab them soon.

Shop Fall Decor:


Fall TV comes back next week! I’m so excited to see several of my favorite shows coming back. NCIS is hands down my favorite show of all time. I’ve been watching since the beginning, and I cannot believe that we start season 15 this year! I’m also excited for the Big Bang Theory and Will & Grace. Can y’all believe Will & Grace is coming back after all those years?

What I’m loving:

I’m really into fall dresses with booties right now. I will be sharing two different outfits with you on the blog, but I thought I would give you a heads up that Old Navy has some great fall dresses. I have this one & this one. They’re both under $50, so they won’t break the bank. I like the way knee-length dresses look with booties. Thankfully, I grabbed both a brown and black pair of booties from Nordstrom. I highly recommend this pair & this pair! They literally go with everything!

Shop Dresses + Booties:

Where I’m shopping this weekend:

{Tory Burch}: It’s my fave sale at Tory right now. My black tote is included, and it’s 20% off! Use code “FALL” for the discount ;) This tote is perfect for work, because it holds its shape well! The leather doesn’t bulge when you have heavy items in the bag. Throw your laptop, planner, and other essentials in here and you’re good to go.

What I’m watching:

Real Housewives of Dallas is making my life. If y’all don’t watch this show, you have to tune in. These girls take drama to a whole other level. My faves are Stephanie & Brandi though, because they’re actually down-to-earth. I like that they bring real life issues (family and friendships) to the show, because those are things in which we can all relate.

Flipping Out is a fun show to watch if you want to laugh a lot. He can come off as arrogant, but I really like Jeff Lewis. His home design/decor is impeccable, and I could only dream of him designing my own house. This show follows him in his at-home design business. Trust me, you’ll laugh…A LOT.

I think that’s about it for this week’s life edit. If there are things you want me to cover in posts like this, let me know! Have a great weekend y’all!



Happy Monday everyone! I hope you have all had great weekends. My Razorbacks & my Dallas Cowboys both won this weekend, so I’m waking up smiling ;) I take football very seriously. I thought I would write a “life update” post and tell you all what I’ve been up to lately. One of my favorite things is reading blogs that contain real life info. I love seeing how people in different parts of the country live and what everyone does on a daily basis and for fun. So here we go…

Places I’ve Been Exploring

As you read last week, I wrote about Fayetteville. I haven’t taken any other trips lately, but I did decide to explore locally to take a few pictures. I stayed in Northwest Arkansas, and the scenery did not disappoint. I think it’s easy to wish I lived somewhere else. Lately, I have been questioning whether I made the right move after pharmacy school. I think I also have to realize that God has a plan. For right now, it’s Northwest Arkansas for me and that is just fine. Here are a few photos I took:

Plans I’ve Been Anticipating

I’m so excited, because this month I’m headed to Texas Tech Homecoming with Ricci. Did we go to Texas Tech? No. Are we in any way affiliated with Texas Tech? Also no. But have you seen Texas Tech’s head football coach? Kliff is hot. That’s really all you need to know. We are on the third row right behind the bench, so don’t worry…I will provide you all with some pictures of the game him. Also, it’s super fun to get out of town and have a weekend away. I’m young, I’m single and I want to travel. We will also be flying in & out of Dallas and we all know that’s my favorite city. Do we already have brunch planned for that Sunday? Yes.

As far as November goes, Jenn is headed to Arkansas to visit us! I’m excited to reunite with my BFF’s. If you want to read more about our last trip together, check out my Nashville recap. It’s fall y’all, so I can’t wait to celebrate cooler temps! It’s also possible that I might head to Dallas for the Cowboys game on Thanksgiving. We will see how it plays out and if dad feels up to it.

Shows I’ve Been Watching

For me, fall TV is a welcome change to the lame summer television shows. On Mondays, I’ve been watching The Big Bang Theory & parts of Dancing with the Stars. There is no way in the world that I can sit down for 2 hours and watch a show, so usually I just watch Maks dance. On Tuesdays, it’s all about NCIS. If you know me in real life, there isn’t much else that needs to be said. This is the 14th season, and Michael Weatherly said goodbye at the end of last season. It was almost “McDreamy like”, but they didn’t kill him off so he can come back (hopefully). Also, be sure to catch Chrisley Knows Best on Tuesdays if you want a good laugh. It’s absolutely hilarious. On Thursdays, I have recently started watching Project Runway. I’m late to this year’s party, so I’m playing catch up. I have a serious crush on Zac Posen, so it doesn’t hurt that he’s a judge this year. He is my favorite designer of all time. And for the weekend, you know I’m all about football. Do y’all watch any of these shows?

Beauty Products I’ve Been Using

I only threw this category in while I’m sitting here looking at my hair glistening in the light from my lamp. I decided I had to share the new shampoo I’ve been using. I saw this Biolage shampoo in the Ulta ad this week, and I decided to try it. A few years ago (when I was washing my hair daily), there’s no way I would have purchased a $25 shampoo. However, since I wash my hair twice a week (maybe three if need be), I decided to bite the bullet. I have worked HARD for 2 years growing my hair out. My hair is pretty hard to work with…meaning that it gets SO SO tangly. Trust me, I’ve tried everything. The wet brush, the detangler, the leave-in shampoo. I have come to terms with it :) Naturally, my hair is wavy and thick. I have grown it out for one simple fact: the look when I curl it. When I curl it, I lose close to half of the length. WHAT?! Yeah, you heard that right. I’m finally at a point where I’m happy with the length. Another reason I bought this shampoo? It’s safe on color-treated hair. I am OBSESSED with my new hair color. It’s darker for fall and is the perfect brown for my skin tone. I’ve said all of this to say that this shampoo is worth it. I’ve used it three times and wanted to be sure I loved it before I shared. My hair is shiny, healthy, and strong. It also doesn’t get oily after 24 hours! This is not sponsored, I just love it. So anyways, be sure to head to Ulta to grab this shampoo okay?!

If you work in a high-stress environment like me, you will know how important it is to take care of yourself. One place I see major fatigue on my face is my under-eye area. We are talking bags, dark circles, puffiness. You know those people who say “Oh wow, you look tired today”…um thanks? Like why do I need to you tell me that? Anyways, I highly recommend the Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels. This product is top 3 must-have ever. SO many people use these, and I’m glad I gave them a try. Immediately, you will feel a cooling sensation that is so relaxing. It’s almost like I feel the stress melting away. And firming…they actually firm my under-eye area. Again, I wouldn’t share them if I didn’t love them. I’ve already used 10 sets of these eye gels, so trust me…they work!

I hope you enjoyed this (random) life update! I would love to hear what y’all are up to. Also, I would love to hear any recommendations on beauty must-haves for fall/winter. Thanks for reading!
