Fall Accessories: Friendship Bracelets

If you've read my blog before, you know I’m not a total fan of Outfit Posts. What can I say? Posting about my outfits seems a bit cliché and overdone. HOWEVER, I believe they are necessary every once in a while.

These past few weeks, the weather has been beautiful in Savannah. So beautiful, I cringe when I think about being trapped in a classroom. Which is why I have been spending all of my spare time outdoors.

This week I spent most of my free time in a square right by my apartment. The Spanish moss, fountain, and weather really made me appreciate the city (even though I’m missing home terribly).
Since I have been missing home so much, I've been looking through old pictures from high school. One thing I loved doing in my free time was making friendship bracelets. I loved making them so much, I actually sold them in a shop in Ocean City, Maryland.

Ame & Lulu: A Hole in One






I participated in an Influencer ActivationProgram on behalf of Influence Central for Ame & Lulu. I received product samples to facilitate my review.
Not a lot of people know, but I played golf for my school’s varsity team throughout high school.  To be honest, it’s probably one of the things I miss about school…besides wearing a uniform and being around all-girls 24/7…..oh wait (; ! But really, golf was..and still is a huge part of my life. When I’m home for break, I attempt to play with my family. 
Even though it’s only week 3 at SCAD, I’m already missing home terribly. I decided to see if my southern friends wanted to learn a bit about golf. We took a trip to one of the local courses in Savannah, and had so much fun. Even though the highlight of our trip was riding around the course in golf carts, we still had tons of fun, and I THINK I taught them the basics of my favorite sport.
When hitting the course, I’m always trying to find cute ways to store my golf balls, tees, etc. Since golf is predominantly a male driven (pun intended) sport, it can be very hard to find girlie golf accessories. When I heard about Ame & Lulu, I was so excited, and kinda disappointed I didn't know about them in high school. 
Ame & Lulu was kind enough to send me their Easy Tote, Essentials Insert, and Key Pouch.The Easy Tote is perfect for my bigger golf items including my golf shoes, change of clothes, and my everyday essentials. I found the Essentials Insert to be the perfect pouch for my golf balls; so I did not have to dig through my golf-club bag. The Key Pouch was a great storage space for my golf-tees, extra cash, and ID.
The one thing I love most about these products is the versatility. Besides using these three items on the course, I can use them in my everyday activities including going to class, shopping around downtown, and going to the beach.

Want to buy your own Ame & Lulu? The shop is graciously giving my readers 25% off their orders with the code love25
Special shout out to Ally Hunt Photography for the lovely photos.

Demi Lovato//Maryland Fashionista 410

Week 2 of classes are already underway. I’m so glad I've finally re-moved back into my apartment for the year.

One of my last “hurrahs” of my summer back in Baltimore was being contacted by Tampax to be their official “onsite blogger correspondent” for the Demi Lovato Concert in Downtown Baltimore. First of all, I think I read the email about 10 times before I realized I was not dreaming. Being ASKED to meet Demi Lovato, and get to see her concert? I am still in a state of shock. But enough about that…let’s talk about the actual day of the concert.

I was allowed to bring a +1, so I obviously asked my little sister to join me for the amazing experience. When we first arrived, we were automatically taken back to meet Demi herself. Though 200 other fans were waiting for their chance to meet Demi, we were automatically taken back first. Demi stopped to compliment both Gabriella and my outfits. We then posed for a picture. Gab leaned in to hug Demi, and I thought her bodyguards were going to hop on Gabriella.



After our adventure backstage, we then toured Demi’s closet set up at the Tampax booth. We got to see outfits worn on the red carpet INCLUDING her notable VMA red dress. Spending time in the photo booth, and talking to the Tampax girls, we finally went to our seats….which were incredible.






MKTO and Christina Perri were her opening acts, and they put on a remarkable show. Both pretty well-known, and I was surprised they were considered opening-act material. However, I’m not complaining since I love them both.





Finally Demi hit the stage. To sum it up, she put on a spectacular show. With many wardrobe changes, this fashionable gal did not disappoint. I am so thankful to have been given the opportunity to attend the show.






Wanna have the chance to attend the Demi Lovato Concert in NY? Show me how you “stay radiant” by using the hashtag #BeRadiantSweeps through October 10 to win a trip to Meet and see Demi live in concert. Also follow Tampax on instagram to stay up-to-date on Demi's tour.  Good luck! 

Tampax provided me with tickets to the show, meet and greet, and complementary items. Blog post is based on my own opinion and thoughts.

One Direction Beauty Collection

With summer coming to an end (this is my last day of summer vacay) I've been squeezing in as much activities as possible. Over the next week, I’ll be sharing some of my favorite adventures from the summer.

While sitting poolside today, I was reflecting on some of my favorite makeup essentials for the season. Shimmer eye shadow, bright lipstick, and mascara were a must. Buying makeup can get very pricey. When I was contacted to write about one of my fav boy band’s new makeup line, I was ecstatic .My debit card was even more excited to learn the price.  


One Direction has released makeup kits perfect for makeup enthusiasts, as well as first-timers. The kits include an eye shadow pallet, shadow stick, lip gloss, lipstick, nail polish, and mascara. At first, I have to admit I was a bit skeptical, but the products are AMAZING. I like the shadows and mascara just as much as my high-end items. And for under $30, everyone should buy this. The kits are being sold exclusively at Macy’s.

6 Bags to Buy this Fall

Although most of my friends from Maryland start Fall Semester this week, I have 3 weeks left of summer break. I like to call this time of the year my “crunch time”. Crunch time includes trips to NY for Fashion Week (which I will be attending/working AGAIN this year), packing for school, and purchasing Fall essentials.

If you know me personally, you know I have an obsession with handbags. It’s honestly what made me choose the fashion industry. And this season, I cannot get enough of the new styles/colors. Take a look at my favorites for this season.

I know, I know. Some of the bags above are very pricey (what can I say? I have expensive taste). If you are on a tight budget this season, take a look at these similar bags. And the best part? They are ALL under $50.
