Simply Saturday V.26

This week has been full of ups and downs but definitely brought so many exciting things. By far one of my favorite times of this week was (drum roll please) ...


I’m a Stylist at J.Crew!!

I get more and more excited I think about it! I have been searching for a job for around three months now and started to get really anxious about not getting any of them. But I applied to J.Crew just for fun originally and ended up getting an interview and later on a position! This all happened within this week, so I haven’t officially started my position, but I’m excited about training and starting! (Not to mention the new styles are ADORABLE)

Along with finally getting a job (hallelujah), I decided on a college!! This has been one of the more stressful decisions of this month, but I’m so glad to be finally committed to a college. I will be announcing soon on the blog and my Instagram so make sure you're following me!

Refinery 29’s Money Diaries Series
    I am a huge fan of Refinery 29 and their content. They always create such interesting series, and this is by far my favorite. Refinery 29 has been doing a series where they have someone (all anonymously) share what they spend a week living in a city. It’s pretty interesting and something I’m always curious to read!

Glossier Phase One & Two
    It’s no secret that I am a major fan of Glossier and both their makeup and skincare lines. My first purchase was the Phase One kit and was completely obsessed with all of the products  Their products are on the semi-expensive side and is something that they have been trying to reduce for a while. They announced this week that they reduced both of their kit prices! I highly suggest everyone trying Glossier once and now is a perfect time!

Passion Planner New Colors
    Planners are such an amazing tool and something that everyone should invest in. I personally use Passion Planner and love the quality of them. Their two new colors are the cutest and I couldn't be more in love with them! I'm definitely eyeing the cobalt blue one for college.

Whats in Purse

It’s no secret that I am a lover of bags. I have a weird obsession with them and love to collect new styles. With changing my bags often, I have it pretty down pat of what my necessities I need to bring in them.

Wallet - I keep this on the smaller size and try not to get big wallets since I own smaller bags. I recently just bought this one, and it fits perfectly in all of my bags! Keeping my wallet to a smaller size really helps me keep only the important and necessary things.

Emergency Bag - This holds anything from girl products to a nail clipper. I try to keep it pretty updated because everything in this pouch I have used. I keep bandaids, Post-it note, spare pen, travel size Clorox wipes, and medicine. When creating your emergency pouch, it’s best to put more and know that

Lip Balm - My lips are constantly chapped. No matter what season, or what time of day, they will for sure be chapped. I usually go for a heavy duty lip balm, but lately, I have been loving the Glossier Balm Dot Com. It is super slim and fits everywhere plus has the best consistency.

Headphones - Necessity!!

Backup Charger -  My phone is constantly dying and I’m not really looking into paying another $100 for a charging phone case. I always have a spare charger with me and it comes pretty handily!

Glasses Case - Years past I have taken terrible care of my glasses. I barely cleaned them and really didn’t take the time to take care of them. This year I was determined to get new glasses and keep them in fantastic condition. I do this by always having a glasses case with me and clean them around every so often usually.

Ruffles On The Go

J. Crew has always been a big part of my closet ever since I have been getting into fashion. They offer so many cute pieces that you are able to style anyway. This top may look familiar from this post, but instead in White! The different color gives it a totally different vibe and creates such a cute look! I love pairing this with jeans for a casual look and instantly gives a cute look!

Simply Saturday V.25

Welcome to my new weekly series! I re-changed the name (for the billionth time) to finally Simply Saturday. I have been brainstorming for a couple of years now and finally picked the perfect name. I’ll be doing these every week and just recapping what's been going on in my life along with things I have been loving and my blog posts for the week. Let me know if there is anything you would like to see in any of the Simply Saturday’s to come.

This week was my last and final tech week of any of my school plays. My school is doing a production of Pippin and has been an amazing experience of its kind. This is my seventh and final show and it has been super surreal for me. We do a Secret Santa type gift exchange on every show date. Last night was opening night and definitely went off with a bang! My Secret Santa person knew I love flowers and got me this adorable flower set!
