Birchbox + Benefit Beauty Bash

October 1, 2014

As you all have probably seen on Twitter, I was chosen by Birchbox to host a #BeautyBash for 5 of my friends in honor of National Wing Women Weekend.

All details of the party were left up to the hostesses so, in true DC form, I decided to host a brunch-style beauty bash (say that 5 times fast). After I got my hostess package from Birchbox, I also decided on a pink theme for obvious reasons. Check out my favorite snaps below!

There was also a theme of winging it (pun intended) when I went to grab toothpicks to attach the hashtag banners to. I then realized I forgot to put them on my grocery list because I have the memory of a 97 year-old woman. I started searching through my kitchen and luckily found pink and white straws that I cut in half - way cuter than toothpicks!

It was so much fun brunching and chatting with my girls. We enjoyed mimosas, cupcakes and lots of catching up. I'm liking this whole party planning thing! Also: a BIG thanks to Birchbox for picking me to host such a fun event and the insanely good hostess box full of Benefit Cosmetics! If you want to try some for yourself, you can shop each item below.

Stay tuned for what I wore - on the blog tomorrow!

By now I'm sure you know a LBD goes a LONG way. This Zara one is proof: I bought it about 3 years ago (my first ever Zara purchase!) and I wear it every season, all year long. Tights, no tights, sandals, heels, wedges - it is my number 1 go-to dress when I'm in a rush or too tired to pick out an outfit for work. Shop my favorite LBD's below!

Though my school days are long gone I still wonder what I would wear to my first day back in high school..  trying not to worry about getting lost or forgetting my lock code to get into my locker. Ya know, the important stuff.

These days, who knows if these shorts would be considered long enough by school standards - but all summer I've been living in these babies. They're so comfortable and (duh) go with everything!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

July 21, 2014

I'm in the process of designing the holiday party invitations at work and now I'm talking about fall clothing. Where has the time gone?! Ok, well, the second one isn't too painful to share because the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is in full swing and I am sharing my favorite items!!!


I lost a lot of clothing due to bed bugs and too many washes in hot water a few months ago, so it's time to fill up those hangers again. I'm on the hunt for comfy pieces that will get plenty of wear - especially neutrals. Black jeans are a must - and comfy flats are perfect for casual Fridays. I wish I could buy everything! What are you loving from the #nsale??
