Self-care, self-care, self-care. You know you have heard me talk about it before on this blog. I really believe in taking care of your self in order to present your best self. Now, I can't say that I like daily upkeep, because really, who likes doing their hair and makeup everyday? Going to bi-weekly, or even monthly, appointments to keep my beauty and maintenance in check and keep my daily routines to a minimum. I have been visiting Glamour Gels Beauty Bar for the past year and love that it is a "one-stop-shop" for what I need!

Casual Weekend Wear

Welcome to the weekend! Nothing makes me happier than Friday night because it means the entire weekend is ahead of me. Although, Saturday morning is pretty sweet, too. I am all about sleeping in! During my days off, I like to be as casual and comfortable as I can. We're talking stretchy fabric, messy hair, and shoes I can put on instantly. This outfit definitely captures all the feels of my casual-wear dreams.

I'll be spending this Friday with my intern off-loading business knowledge and shooting upcoming projects. Saturday I am heading to my friend Jacque's (from the blog Looks for Lovelies) baby shower, then out on the town later on with the girls! Of course, the over-planner that I am, Sunday is already booked with Spencer to walk around downtown in the Avenues (our new 'hood) and ogle and lust after the gorgeous homes! I hope your weekend plans are just as fulfilling. xx

Our New Mattress: Tuft and Needle Review

I was given this mattress for free by Tuft & Needle in exchange for review. All opinions are my own. I tell you exactly what I would tell my friends about it!

Honestly, I see someone ask about what mattress to buy at least once a week on Facebook! With all of the options out there, it was hard to narrow down our selection to one company to work with when we wanted a new sleeping area for our apartment! I combed through all the threads and read all the reviews online talking about different systems, pads, and beds. We finally settled on Tuft & Needle because I knew that they had two things in mind: quality and customer service. They did not disappoint in either of those areas!

Pink Off the Shoulder Top

UGH is all I can think, say, and feel about summer break coming to an end. I have loved being able to wake up, hang out in my comfy clothes, and work on my blog daily! Plus, vacation/lunch/drink/bathroom breaks can be taken whenever. I think I was meant to work from home! With school (teaching) starting up again in the next few weeks, I have been prepping everything like crazy!

Well, it has taken me a really long time to write this London, England travel guide! It has the details on the best places to visit, and how to pack it all in during a short stay there! Spencer and I flew to Europe during the month of June and spent 2.5 weeks traveling around different countries. The city of London holds a special place in our hearts because of it's friendliness, exciting sights, rich history, and cultural diversity. I liken it to a cleaner version of New York City!
